    I have a theory that the majority of "young people" who are making more money than their parents do it through IM....most of my friends don't believe that's possible...can anyone prove me right?:)

    This kind of leads me to another curious question I have.....how many young Blackhatters have parents who frown upon the internet because they don't believe your making "real money"?

    My dads a doctor here in the u.k works for a drugs company (astra zenica) overseeing trials of new drugs and I earn more than him, he has trained for many years and has years of experience and I have 4 G.C.S.Es lol.

    It really is amazing how the internet has opened up a whole new way of earning for people. Im just glad Its around now or I could have ended up being stuck in a 9-5 until im 65.

    Edit: I must add that my dads job is a lot more worthwhile than what I do lol

    My folks are at the top of their respective professions, and I don't see myself making anywhere near the amount they do annually using the internet alone... I know it's possible to bring in 7 figures online, but I don't take risks large enough to warrant rewards of that size... wow, sounds like I've found my solution...

    Whats that? Take bigger risks or go find a job and be the best?


    And I would say that the young people aren't limited to making money with just internet marketing, though most probably employ some form of it in the business they are in.
