    What is my profession? What do i do for a living? How do I make money? And how am I going to pay the rent?

    These are questions that land lords ask me when I contact them to rent their house.

    What should I tell them? I am a full time work at home guy doing IM and server stuff for clients. I don't have an offce, or a company registered.

    What is the best answer that I can give to these people who don't understand what I do and make them give me the house?

    LOL just say 'web design' or 'website creation for clients', something like that, even if you dont do that. most people will have no idea what IM is, and probably think you're a scammer.

    Just say that you are in the "marketing business" you find clients for large companies and get paid on a commission basis.

    This is in essence what you actually are doing if you are an IM.

    I'd say your a web designer. its easier for people to comprehend than to say internet marketer as nobody has any idea. Keep it Simple

    You should start an LLC and incorporate yourself.

    That way you can apply for loans and mortgages on a house. I'm guessing it would be the same for renting as well.

    That's the best solution.

    Start an LLC and show that you are serious in your business.
    Anyone can't say nothing about your social reputation.
