    Just thought it would be interesting to see what motivates everyone to do well in IM.

    Would be great if we could get a lot of people posting in here.

    Obviously it will be money for most people. Money mainly being for your income and such.

    But in a 2nd sense. What else motivates you to do well. Is there something that drives you other than income. Even what you want to do with that income in terms of it being disposable income.

    For me there are 2 things.

    1) Ive always wanted to buy a lamborghini.
    2) Ive wanted to build some kick ass huge Whitehat site and put my name down in the books.

    So what motivates you?

    Yeah of course having 30k+ coming into the bank would be an amazingly comforting
    site to see there is more to all of this.


    1. I really want to help all my family out of any debt and worries.
    2. I want to buy some land, a nice house, and some nice cars.
    3. I also want to be able to travel freely.
    4. I too want to build a huge white hat site and turn into a respected .com mogul
    Gotta pay off my student loans as well, currently working on an Internet
    Marketing degree, could help me score some conference invites when I'm
    buildin my mogul status.

    Same.. it's all about working for myself. I just don't want anyone telling me my hours/dress code/how to work. I worked in IT for a couple years before and the stupidity level amazed me. I'm sure some jobs are better than others and seniority always mean less bullshit is hanging over you but I can't stand even a tiny bit of authority over me.

    The money actually doesn't do all that for me. I'm making a good amount but it's just like a game now... it's more the FREEDOM that it brings.

    I have spent most of my life broke as well and now I can treat myself to the little things without worrying about it.

    I just want to be able to work for myself, I'd love the freedom to do what I want when I want. I also wouldn't mind some serious $$$ :D

    Freedom, im not there yet and im still working full time, but my IM income is growing and im trying to spread out into several different areas. I think with 8 hours a day I could make a living off this and eventually earn enough to be free for the rest of my life, but im still learning and trying different things.

    One day I will be able to come into work, wait for my boss to come in, and tell him to go fuck himself and then walk out, theres my motivation :)

    I really want to earn approx. $50k per month as I associate this with having so much money I dont have to worry about finances anymore.

    Also if I achieve $25k per month that wouldn't exactly be bad.

    You need to think as a means to an end I think and a game.

    PS. A gangsta rapper style Land Rover and a couple of nice properties one in country one in somewhere hot in Europe would also be handy ;)

    :)
