    I was just wondering what people around you think of you doing IM.Do they think you are wasting your time or do they support where you want to go with it. I was just curious because lots of people I know think im just falling for make money quick scams and wasting my time even though I have been able to make good consistent money.

    When I picked this line, My family were happy that I was doing well but also worried about the "Sustainability" of this kind of work and the securing the future.

    They Stopped worrying when I bought 2 Houses with my IM money :D

    @OP: It depends how you explain to them, although it gets a bit difficult sometimes, but yeah, sometimes it gets difficult to explain people ;)

    They supported me from the very beginning, but said to always have a backup plan (college degree, 9-5 job possibility, etc).

    I have no friends now. That's how my friends took it. But in the end, fuck it. Fifty cent said it best. If they don't provide you anything, then fuck em. Especially if they are negative. No friend is worth my dreams

    My mom was the only supportive person in my life. She's still here and she is the first person going to reap the rewards ;)

    Don't let others negativety take you down. They will come out of the woods just to try and snatch your motivation. There like wolves. Seeing others with aspirations, dreams and persistence, makes them feel worse about their lives

    Honestly, I LIKE that people don't believe its possible. But the real question is: WHY DO YOU CARE?

    Besides, why would I want them to be interested in what I'm doing? So they can try and do what I'm doing and saturate this field even more then what it is?

    Every market needs more buyers then supplyers in order to be a sustainable money maker for those who sell.

    The more people who don't know about what your doing, the better!!

    Make money silently. Stop looking for validation in your life from anyone outside of yourself.

    Real G's move in SILENCE!!!!

    At first they were totally uninterested with the question like: IM, what's that ?!
    Seriously, I don't know why I even bothered to explain them, because they didn't care...

    When the money started pouring in, they were like: What do you do, exactly ?
    and I was like:

    Fuck the haters. Make your wheel barrows of money and let them all jealously wonder where the hell it all came from!
