Just taking a break from work. I've been trying to make income from IM but the most I could get so far is $150/month. I am a businessman offline and have retired from the workforce as a result of building my business. I thought I would foray into online stuff because obviously that's where the future is. But goddamnit it tough! much respect to you who have made a living online for as long as you have. This IM thing is weird, addictive in a way.. The more i fail at it, the more committed i feel to make it work! It's like playing one of those puzzle games where the harder it gets the more you love it. This thread is a promise to myself that i will keep grinding until i make good money out of IM. I'm now learning SEO. Again, kudos to all you senior IMers who've made it. I have much more appreciation now for what you had to go through to get to where you are!
