I got 7k. Should i take the money and run?

by 66 comments
I'm at a crossroad in my life if you will and im not sure what i should do. I'm 23, I have a little over 7k just chillin. I make a little under 1k a month online but it's just not enough to live on each month. I DO NOT want a regular 9-5 job.

My goal in life is to be happy, wake up every day stress free and if i get a job that would be a major inconvenience for me. I love internet marketing but i just cant make enough money from it. I have a feeling if i don't make more eventually ill be forced to get a regular job. Should i try to start an offline business?

I just don't know what to do. I'm not looking to make a ton of money here and there. I need something that i can rely on consistently month after month. But i need to make over 5-7k a month or i fear i will never be satisfied with my life :confused:

    I don't understand. You say you don't make enough to live on, then you say you have 7k "just chillin".

    Your thread title asks if you should "take the money and run". What money?

    Hey, your thread title is confusing. Anyway, If I were you, read more threads and surely it will help you to be a successful internet marketer, you need to have the right direction and contacts.

    I think the post makes sense. He's accumulated 7K from IM and can either reinvest it into his IM ventures to potentially grow or take the 7K, keep it in the bank, and get a job. The answer really falls upon your circumstance. If you have money to fall back on (more than that 7K), you might consider sticking with it. If you need money though, a salaried job with benefits can actually give you less stress rather than more.

      Thank You this is what i meant. After i submitted the post i thought people might get mad by it like they usually do cause it's not 100% clear.

    Since you are already making just under 1K /month, add more effort so that you can quit your 9-5 work per day...

    If you're making 1K a month, the phrase that comes to mind is " Rinse and repeat".

    If you are making money from one niche you could simply expand on that or explore other niches?

    Oak trees grow from acorns, small beginnings is what I'm saying.

    Why don't you do more of what you're doing that's bringing in the money? It's called scaling up.

    Why dont you keep making the 1k a month and get a regular job, that way you will earn from your job and the IM money you make can get you all the nice things in life.

      Because it takes up too much time. I can't look back in 10 years and say that's what i spent my time doing. Im already 23 and i feel like the time is just going by way to fast and its scary

    At first read,your title shows that you have found some 7k money somewhere and now you are asking us that whether you should take that money and run or not

    Normally i would never post something like this but my feelings are so day to day and up and down a lot of times i just would like to be a dancer or an actor or a model or something like that. I feel if i can make a decent amount of money then i can go and try something like that with full devotion because i wouldn't be worried about other things (financially) My brain dosen't let me forget ever that im not where i should be

    If your making $xxx now, usually you can do the same thing 4 or 5 times over and turn it into $xxxx. If you find something that works rinse and repeat.

    You just stated on an internet marketing board that you have $7,000 and you are open to being pitched services.

    I don't know about leaving internet marketing but right about now you should be running from your PM box.

    Your also saying that the 1K a month is not enough to reach your goals and let you live the way you want to live.

    Then you ask if you can pay someone to help you, which means you have just opened another can of worms to be dumped on your head. If you do this do your research on who ever you talk with. Don't just jump in to the first thing that has great sales copy or the first person you talk directly with. There are 100's of folks on here who are very knowledgeable and have the ability to teach what they do to help you grow your business into a successful Internet Marketing career.

    Word to the wise though, there are also a whole bunch of folks with no business ethics of any kind and will take you for every dime if they can get inside your head and will do it with no regard for you. And yes i'm saying they are on the Warrior Forum.

    I'm not a coach but I know several folks here that are first class teachers and will stick with you through the process. I'm not an affiliate nor will I be compensated in any way if you hire them to teach you. Be prepared to work though, because they won't do the work for you.

    Since you don't have enough post to PM me I'm going to P.M. you and give you my e-Mail address and the folks you might contact.

    I've been 23 once and I definitely know how you feel... the point where you just want to start being successful..lol... but honestly earning 1K a month is not that bad.. you got your way earning that much it means your strategy is working, what you need to do is just to scale up what you have been doing now.

    5-7k - ? You think it's very many?
  • Profile picture of the author jaypoole
    If you've made 7k then look at what has earned you the most of that 7k. Eliminate any parts of the process that slow you down, and introduce new things in turn (utilising split testing so you know what works better etc) to improve those results further.

    There are many WSO's that has 1 v 1 coaching and there is a guarantee that if you dont make X amount of money from it they will pay you back 100%...i recommoend searching for those.

    Thanks for all the comments everyone i really appreciate it. Lots of good info there. See i would like to get help from someone but i just don't know who and i don't want to waste money because ive already did that before way too much.

    Who is really trusted that has helped people on wf before in the past?

      It's possible to pick up much good advice by doing what you're doing. You have a problem or a question and you ask on here - at least you can focus on what you've set yourself to do.

      As far as who is a good person to pay for advice - then it all depends on what type of IM you are in.

      in my own experience some of the best general IM training that covers loads of areas has come from Jason Fladlien and Wilson Mattos - excellent..

    I Seriously doubt you made that much money, if you or any one who had tasted the success in internet marketing can't even think about leaving it, instead they try to make it big and try to scale it up...

    From all of you posts here everything just looking negative..

    you should be asking about how to scale up your profits .. but you are just giving the reasons why you want to quit...

    $1000/month is more then enough that anyone can put in their business and try to make it more profitable..

    there are many who set up their online business from nothing, And you r thinking about quitting when you are earning $1000/month ... Amazing man..
