    Seems so many on here talk about this method and another method, but i wonder who actually walks their talk?

    If you make at least $2k/months from IM, raise your tail! :)

    Or even better question:

    - what are the main lessons you have learned from the day when you made less than $500/month.

    I am sure everybody can benefit and get inspired from this information.

    the questions are ONLY to those that crossed overs (or make "way more" than $2K/months) - basically make a living from IM, not treating it like a hobby that "may be one day"...

    Thank you in advance.

    $2000 a month is only $24K a year, if you're doing IM full time and not doing at least that, you should probably consider getting a j.o.b. (if you're living in the U.S.)

    That's a below average week for my business and I'm 95% white hat. :eek:

    Considering that at least 90% here make in average $10/day, I assume, (at least judging from all the comments), $2K is a good min number to start with, so keep your arrogance to yourself :)

    So, again...
    - what are the main lessons you have learned from the day when you made less than $500/month.

    You could live like a prince if you made 2k/month on the low in "socialist" France A guy made a book about living of government assistance (complete with ferrari) and made millions of it. Can't recall his name.

    Haha I don't see any reason to answer this question. But to you other question, when you're on the grind making fuck all. Just do whatever you can to get by dude. When you have a method that works, don't lay off. Keep milking it for all its worth so you don't regret it later.

    The first three rules of IM are:

    1) Take action
    2) Take action
    3) Take action

    Nope, wasn't me...
    hey, I guess the question comes to minds of those who major income source isn't IM. (and for me it's definitely still a "hobby").

    [QUOTE- what are the main lessons you have learned from the day when you made less than $500/month.
    - Care to share how your first 3 months were and at which point the leap happened?[/QUOTE]

    Main lesson - Don't give up, if you can make $1.00, you can make $10.00, then $20, then $100. Figure out what works then figure out how to do it better. Ask a lot of questions, take notes, research. Like anything else, becoming good at something takes practice and hard work. It can be done, believe in it and yourself 100%. But know there is no magic buttom or method that will turn you into an instant IM Guru, that's all B.S. Stick with proven methods that have sustainability. Most hard core, quick cash BH methods are just not sustainable.

    The first three months was failure after failure, investing $100 to make $50, wasting time looking for that perfect "method" or "system". Buying and trying so called Guru systems and techniques. Once I learned this is a business and if you want to be successful, you need to work it like a business, sticking with proven business models, putting in the hours and doing my homework, I was finally able to build a business model that was profitable and sustainable. Once I built the model, I scaled it up and outsourced better than half of it which gives me the time to work on my next business model. You need to keep reinventing your wheel.

    Just busting you, observer... I get that your actual question was a bit deeper than that.

    - what are the main lessons you have learned from the day when you made less than $500/month.

    That this is like any other business... you work hard and smart and you make a good living.

    - Care to share how your first 3 months were and at which point the leap happened?

    First month was around 700 or so, second month was close to 1800 and third month was close to 3K.

    That was 4+ years ago.

    I make about 400-1k a day on average, some days I do a few g's, but it's just money, people worry to much about shit and thats why they don't bank, is because their worrying 24/7 about how to make money, they don't take action and just chill

    charliebones, thank you for first post in this thread that demonstrates no arrogance...
    Amazing how some people forget to get grounded when they crossed over a certain milestone.

    Are there any other suggestions?
    The mundane nature of this business seems to be a kill for me. Return on time investment doesn't seem to justify itself comparing to fat 6 figure that i made (yes, with jobs, as well as other non IM business).
    But i want to get away from long hours and create more passive time of income. But so far there has been nothing passive about low (yes low) earnings that i observe. Not ready to outsource yet, as i don't believe that my model is perfect to be scaled by duplications with new hires.

    So, if anybody want to be kind enough and share more, that would be great.

    And those who want to show that their ego and arrogance is an asset, sure, knock yourself out too, guys!

    Thank you, BassTrackerBoats.
    May be some more details on what worked, what didn't?
