    Hello!

    I just want to take a moment to get some what of a discussion going. Pick your brain. Just a tad.

    So, why did you get started online?

    What motivated you to "get out there" and start trying to make an income?

    Were you motivated by PAIN? i.e. you HAD to succeed as you got fired. You hated your job?

    Perhaps you were motivated by pleasure? i.e. that dream lifestyle?

    Because I like to work for myself. I hate it when someone watches me and tells me what to do, when to arrive, when to eat, when to smoke and when to go home.

    Started out to make money for music gear. Became a hobby that actually surpassed my music - and now it's my business.

    The main reason is not to get a job. Not having to work for someone else. Just being a boss.

    My first minimum wage job motivated me to never have to work a job again. I suppose I'm just not suited for the wage grind.

    I started because I hate when someone telling me what I must do. Freedom is the best! We have one life and we must really live! not vegetate! :) Normal job will never give me what I will be have with IM.

    it was a hobby Blogging -- that I didn't know much about .. until I found BHW and found out how it was really done.

    (IM is really addictive when you start making money)

    Have you ever worked somewhere and been talked to like you are an over used wank sock, by some scabby little bastard who thinks they are high and mighty because they are on £1 an hour more than you?

    Working 40 hours a week desperately trying to save up just so you can go away for a week or two once a year is not my idea of fun or life.

    My idea of life is working 2 - 4 hours a month and going away for six months a year, that is why I do IM.
