    Hey guys, im just curious, i for my self not earned much at all with youtube (250-300$/month) and i spent it on some fancy clothes, eating, paying some bills and go out with my girlfriend here and there. Thou im doin IM for like half a year ago only.

    But what about some guys i read about here who makes like tons of money like 1000-5000$/month? [im from mid EU, so that truly sounds huge for me]

    So are you the people i see on the street, on videos sitting in top class cars in their mid twenties or what? :D


    I would definetly spare for a Lambo.... :cool:

    The reason the people you talk about are earning $5000 a month is because when they were earning $300 a month like yourself they invested that money back into IM instead of buying fancy clothes.

    I'm sure that many IMers here just reinvest their money to make more money :). After all, the sky is the limit.

    I spend my earnings buying every single ebook out there hoping I find a rich overnight method, and so far no success. I think I'll just have to continue buying, I'll never give up!

    Instead of purchasing materialistic possessions, you should reinvest that $300 per month into scaling up what you're doing to make that $300.

    Exactly. The reason IM is such an awesome industry is because NEARLY everything can be scaled up. And the best way to do that is to invest.

    Sneakers....fall in the trap since I'm a kid and now I buy a pair whenever possible but i keep it to pairs that I like and not the overhyped shit. But I always keep half of what I make to reinvest or pay the bill. Latest crazy blowing off was for a pair of bespoke shoes and a tailored suit but I can keep them for yeaaaaaaaaaaars and it is always handy!

    1) All it takes to live ! House/Food/Electricity/Internet/Car etc..
    2) Internet expanses (domains/hosting etc..)
    3) Reinvest into the web (new projects/testing etc..)
    4) Reinvest into stocks (anything risky, i'm in !)
    5) Top secret lol....

    woah, interesting and inspiring answers there :D

    so the "big" guys are playing the

    "i make money to make more money" kinda game


    maybe its an outrageous question, but how many of you guys played at one point of your life some serious RTS multiplayer game at a high level (StarCraft, WarCraft)?

    I think i benefited a LOT from StarCraft BroodWar, it just changed my whole think/problem solving capability system in my brain. :D

    I re-invest most of my money into my projects, but sometimes I'll by myself something here and there.
    Like pizza, something from the store, vending machine, etc.

    Just the other day I bought a few books, and a bookcase, so theres something.

    But most of the time I just re-invest it into my projects I'm working on.
