    I'm really new to this forum, It's not even 1 month since I'm a member here, but the discovery of this forum was one of the most life changing events of my life, maybe the only things that really top this event was my marriage and my two great kids, I was always a very well informed person, since my first access to internet when I was 14, I pretty much never left the computer, I'm one of those people that is constantly researching, and the internet was always a great part of my life, I never felt like I fitted in in this big corporate machine that is our economic system, the fact that I always looked at the system like it was a system that was making people slaves since young age and made them believe that if they graduated they would be better than the rest was a topic that I always felt passionate and enraged about.

    The great majority of people are educated to believe that you are obligated to have a job to survive and we also know that no matter how much time you spent studying, a job will almost never make you rich, there are several very high paying jobs in which we can make a pretty awesome life, but getting a job, working for someone else, and becoming a millionaire is something that just does not happen, there are always exceptions obviously, but it is the main consensus that a job's main function is to get your boss rich, not yourself.

    This is were Internet Marketing comes in, no, not anyone will become a millionaire when joining this line of work, most people won't even be able to get a full stable income out of it, but this is not because of the market itself, but because the great majority of people trying this line of work are either looking for a way to make money without having to lift a finger and waste any time and the others just try this for a short amount of time to buy a new car or get that trip to wherever, afterwards they just go back running to their real jobs being a slave of their bosses and of this giant corporate system, there are two main reasons for this behavior, one is that people are educated and programmed to disbelief in the possibility of a better life, other is that people just have the tendency to question the nature of Internet Marketing due the the million schemes and scams that exist online since the beginning of this market.

    That's were people like most of us in this forum come in, we were lucky enough to come across a forum that pretty much answers all our questions and doubts about this market, I seriously doubt that there isn't a person here that doesn't believe in the possibility of making money online, sure there must be people here that never made $1, but this is due to the fact that they are probably some lazy persons just looking for a way to make money without doing anything, but what this people don't realize is that making money out of waiting simple does not exist, on the other hand, thanks to several tools and methods shared here for free, it is very possible to make a considerable amount of money with a minimal amount of time and work, but sometimes wasting a few hours doing something online is just to much for these people.

    Which brings me to my conclusion, being a member here only for a few weeks, I have only successfully made money out of freelancing thus far, but I have a very real expectation of within the next 2 - 3 months being making some $1500 a month out of Internet Marketing in the worst case scenario.
    I'm aware it will require a lot of work by my part to reach that stable income, but I'm also aware that it will be the easiest and money I've made in my life, relaxed in my leather chair, with my pajamas dressed all day, just working in the computer with my wife at home, working 3 days on a row and resting for 3 days afterwards, and the best of it all is the fact that with enough commitment by my part in this work, there is a very real and plausible possibility of becoming a millionaire, something that is simple not possible in almost other job we can get, it is obvious that I may or may not ever achieve that, but the fact that it is possible to a great degree it's more than overwhelming, it only depends of the amount of work, passion and expertise I put into it.

    So my advice is, do not think to much about it because your brain will deceive you, your brain has been programmed to deny the possibility of this reality, probably most methods shared here, do work, you might have to improvise in certain circumstances, but they do work, it's all a question of logic and math, draw your work plan and execute it, you will be surprised when the first money lands on your paypal or your first check comes through your mail.

    Hope this thread helps some indecisive minds out here to change and make money!

    Wrong, boop...you lose! That is conspiracy idea created to sell noobs that their reality is a conspiracy of there own making. Ambition is a required fundamental aspect for ANY success, but by itself; it is NO MEANS to guaranteeing you get any amount of money AT ALL. Get a MBA and you will realize it requires more than just will power. You have to have the technical knowledge, not just motivation.

    Look around you! This is the free market system, capitalism at its best, not a abundant monetary communal toilet to be shared. Most financial sectors of the world are based on competition like it always has been, IM is NO different from the real world.

    Sorry but it is the truth; ambition is just one of the many essential skill required "to make it big"...:(

    *You'll learn; we all had to at one time or another.

    The point I was trying to make was that, with both ambition and motivation, knowledge and expertise will come, if a person is ambitious about achieving some end game, this person will learn a great deal of knowledge from different sources to get it done.

    On the other hand, what does it serves you to have all the knowledge of the universe if you just remain quiet in your easy chair without doing nothing at all?!

    I don't work in IM to promote other peoples stuff, CL, CPA, etc.
    But I do use blackhat IM to promote my own stuff. This year, I passed the $500k USD profit mark. I do dream of being a millionaire, but at this stage the difference is really only academic and I embarrass myself when I dream of riches. Its really just numbers in a bank account which does not have my name on it :).

    Recently I moved to South America from East Europe. $100k here is the equivalent of 1$ million USD in the USA. I have a house, some girlfriends, great friends, great lifestyle, beautiful local girls, I work 20 hours per week, etc.

    Keep going, but just by reading this forum and using peoples tools etc you will not become really really rich. You will need to put your own slant on it and genuinely you need to be very good at what you are doing to make any sort of real cash.

    Congrats on your success so far, but don't come down on the rest of the working world. This whole IM thing could be gone in a heartbeat one day. 200 years ago people were getting rich in tulips and nobody would ever think of trying that these days. Google could make changes that might kill the adsense goose or some supercompany might swallow up a lot of retail chains and decide they don't need affiliates anymore, or the economy might crash for good and food and shelter become the real commodities, not ipods and xboxes. Be grateful you live in an era where this is even possible.

    Advertisement is one of the oldest markets in existence, and it will never end as long as there is an economic system.

    And IM is the most effective form of advertisement ever created, so I doubt it will be extinguished in our life time.

    What would you say then that's the most effective form of advertisement, just think twice if you were going to say Television, because that is definitely wrong!!!

    From my perspective, freelancing isn't really progress, I'm just helping some guys making money and getting paid for it.

    In my opinion making progresses in IM is having my own methods working.

    Yes, I've take a big step in being full time on the computer, but still, I'm not halfway successful in starting real IM!

    I'd say it was more like:

    Knowledge + a plan of action = Money or success

    Intelligence has nothing to do with it, but having the knowledge to build a successful meathod then take action on that meathod does?

    and the reason I say that is there are some real dumbassess out there earning money on the online, its just they have the knowledge on how to make money online and they take action!

    I will also have to add luck and also some initial monetary investment
    So it would be Intelligence + Hard Work + Luck + Monetary Investment = Money

    Anyone want to add to this recipe for success? You are welcome.
