    Hello,

    Since I am making 99.9% of my money online I sometimes ask myself the question: "What would I do if the internet had never been invented?" And I think that I probably would work some shitty job right now while attending college for something that I don't really care about cause it was basically the internet where I learned how to become successful in life. Without the internet I would have never been influenced in such a positive way and I would have never seen the possibilities that are out there.

    What about you? Where would you be if there was no internet?

    Take MDMA and then proceed to re-evaluate my plans for the future.

    Same thing as I do now. Hustle all day, make sales and close deals.
    If you can't do anything offline you should seriously consider working on that aspect; if you aim to get big, you will definitely need to step offline as well. And by this I don't mean hustling and shit, I just refer to the everyday interactions that happen in a solid business.

    I would be either homeless, drunk, dead or doing some shitty job I would hate. Internet gave me freedom to do what I want and use more my head than my hands in work and that is awesome. Really I would probably hang myself if there was no internet or would be heavily drinking.

    Internet Marketing is my very first money making job right after studying college 3 years ago. I cannot imagine myself without internet, I don't really have plans for my life after education.

    If there were no Internet, you would have never known about it or miss it.

    Believe it or not, many of us remember a time before the Internet and cell phones.

    Back then we did things like go out to parties, meet with people, read (a lot). The same thing we still do today.

    But back them you made "extra money" with classified ads in magazines.

    You would find a popular niche, and find a product that was a match for the niche. Then you would go out and buy every magazine about that niche you could find.

    You would take these home and go thru them looking at the ads. After a few months of doing this, you could see the ads that continued to run, meaning they were profitable.

    Then you would write your own ad, and buy space in the magazine. Typically the lead time was 3 months out, so you had to buy your ad in January for the April issue. Usually for testing you would buy 3 months of ads.

    What you hoped for was that the niche did not go cold before your ad ran. It was exactly like IM, it was just called "Classified Marketing" and it took months to see results.

    I once made 182.00 once with an ad that said:

    "Get absolutely nothing for $1!! That's right, be the first one on your block to get absolutely nothing for 1.00. Your choice of red blue or green!! Don't Delay"

    I had blank bumper stickers printed up (from the printing shop at my school), and sent them one. Printing, envelopes and stamps cost me about 31 cents, making a 69 cent profit on every deal, not counting the ad.

    I was 14, and killing it.

    Oh, and I mowed a HELL of a lot of yards.

    There is always a way to make a buck.

    I'd probably just work for the man and be sad, broke and depressed.

    Same thing I did before the internet. I've had my own business since 1987. Offline marketing and direct mail.

    without the internet there is no peace in the future. The Internet broke the governments information monopoly.

    And then created it...

    Do you really think that most governments are completely transparent not because of the internet? Maybe one day, but not now.
