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

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.

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?

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

At first read,your title shows that you have found somewhere(at road,in street ) 7 K money and you are asking us whether should you run or not.

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

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

Woah, you are feeeling that now, wait until your 33

I guess the question for me is, what do you want to look back at in 10 years and say I did that and be happy with it? Is a regular 9-5 job going to make you feel any better looking back than working online? Is there something else that you really want to do?

Making a living online is not for everyone, as every job is not for everyone. Only you can now what you want. I know for me, I would be scaling up that $1000 unless I really found a job I was called to do.

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.

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.

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..

You have gotten your perfect answer which is to scale up what you are already doing. You can use some of your money to outsource your work so you can do more with less time.

Trust me, the Internet marketing world is fickle and what works now might not work tomorrow. You should try to develop multiple streams of income. Perhaps you should start a blog explaining how you make money. That would be a good start.

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..

You should take a bit (10%) of your "chillin'" money and invest it in more Internet marketing knowledge, tools, and technology. You could take another 10% of it and learn how to invest in penny stocks.

In other words, put some of your money to work for you. That's what every wealthy person does. Why give up on Internet marketing if you are only 23 and you're already making money at it?

Do you have any work experience whatsoever? Note that nearly all successful entrepreneurs have had jobs before at one point. You still need experience before you can run a business...

I'd move to somewhere in Asia/South America where you can easily live on $1000 per month then I'd buckle down and work on the business for a few years until you make it.

Go somewhere like Chiang Mai, Thailand where you can make friends with lots of the entrepreneurs that are there and basically bounce ideas of each other so you can all improve.

I work full time in internet marketing doing about 50 hours a week but not for myself, I work for a company, and I am 25. I only work about 10 hours a week on my projects. In 3 years from the now I will be making 100k+ on my own and living in Costa Rica, sometimes, especially when you are young, you have to buckle down and do some hard work. Point Blank!

I agree with the above quote.

Get a part time job to take care of your expenses and
scale up the method you were using to make the 1k.

If you can find a mentor to help you speed up the process
that would be great.

$7k is not a lot of money but you can turn it into more money with the right system.
Search around and do your homework on a proven money making system you would like to get plugged into. Making $5k to $7k a month is not hard at all with the right systems in place

I would suggest you invest that 7k.

1.) Use 1K to have someone build a decent blog about YOUR PASSION.
2.) Use Another 1k To Develop Multiple List Building Campaigns.
3.) Use 2K for SOLO ADS to drive traffic to that list building campaign.
4.) ANother 1k For PPC on FAcebook to drive even more traffic to the list building campaign
5.) $600.00 On The Best Marketing course you could find
6.) $700.00 in SAVINGS OR INVESTMENT
7.) Give $700.00 to Someone who needs it.

Use That 7k To Make The 5k Per Month.

Please read the forum rules.

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:

It's a fact that more money = more problems.

Never get into Offline business, because it can be very stressful as well. You got people spending money they expect you to deliver

You should keep your 7K and find a job until you are making enough to live on and have money in savings to last in case of emergencies or a drop in income. You could take a small part of the 7K and invest it in something, but I have recommendations on what to invest in.

If you don't get a job, you're going to whittle away the 7K paying living expenses since your IM career doesn't do the job.

I say split it, save half invest half. Then since you are already making 1k off of t he internet...That's 1000% further than most people ever get...take what you are doing and learn how to scale it higher. Always make improvements/changes to increase your income.

If you can't live on the $1k a month you're earning, can you get a part-time job, one or two days a week, so that you still have lots of time for Internet marketing? That's how I started, back in 1996.

If you're desperate for money, you're much more to likely to make bad decisions, seeking quick cash, instead of building the foundations of a strong business - something that adds genuine value to the Internet. That type of business has a better chance of long-term success. I hope you're thinking in terms of building a business, not just making money.

It would be helpful to forum members if you gave us a little information about the methods you're using to make the $1k a month (without giving away any secrets). Otherwise, we may waste time telling you things you already know.

For example:

Are you building email lists, which give you repeated opportunities to make a sale, instead of one chance of a sale - a chance that disappears in a few seconds? Also, email lists are valuable assets you can sell one day if you wish.

Is whatever you're doing just making money or building a business that you could sell if you wished?

Are you promoting products that pay residual income or lifetime commissions, so that you get paid over and over?

Is your business risky? Are you relying solely on just one method, one affiliate program, one web host, one affiliate network, one search engine, one source of traffic, one product, one industry, one anything else? Do you need to diversify?

Could you outsource any of your tasks to save time and allow you to concentrate on the things you enjoy and do best?

Why are you considering quitting? Is it because you don't enjoy what you do? If so, re-examine your business and look at ways to re-design it so that you spend more time doings you enjoy and much less time on the rest. Or do you need to totally change what you're doing so that you enjoy it?

Are you building a reputation, or a brand that people remember. Don't under-estimate how important this is. People like buying from people they know, like and trust (thanks Paul Myers for that tip). It's wonderfully valuable if people remember you, and remember your website and type the domain name into search engines. My strong recommendation: Start building a reputation now. (I haven't done much of that on this forum, but I have elsewhere on the Internet.)

Have you examined your strengths and interests so that you're making the most of them? For example, many forms of Internet marketing involve writing articles and some people love that, and some people hate it. What can you create that you would enjoy creating?

23. You don't know how lucky you are. I'm 63 and ever so grateful I had the sense to build up my own self-managed superannuation fund when the money was rolling in a decade or so ago, so I can just potter around now if I wish - and waste time giving advice to people who don't take it.

If you do expand your business and get it running nicely, save one-third of your income for the future.

Make your own decisions. Choose your own life. Whatever decisions you make, be sure to do it because it's what YOU want out of life, not someone else's idea of what would be a good thing to do. Go for it!

If you're not making 5-7k per month right now, I would say that you don't really 'need' that amount.

Truthfully, you need to first make enough to pay your month to month bills.

At that point, you are financially independent, and it's a matter of scaling up from there.

The average 4 person household income in the US is about a third of what you say you 'need'.

You can do both on and offline businesses. If you're already doing $1k per month, you should be able to cover you basic bills already, unless you're blowing a lot of money.

If you know about SEO and internet marketing, it would make perfect sense to start a SEO company. Kevin Wilke has a course that's put together nicely, and i think he charges two payments of $497 or something like that.

But honestly, you should just scale up whatever you're already doing.

I mean if you have success with something that you can scale up, GO FOR IT. If you need to work on it all day and it might go away, that's a different story.

I think you can do better than those numbers but you gotta get creative.

Dude, you already make more online than 80% of this forum... lol.

I earn $1,000,000.00 per hour posting tiny classified ads. The rest of my day is spent surfing, drinking ice cold beer and playing nookie with my 21 year old trophy wife. Want to be like me? Of course you do, all you need to do is repeat a secret yogi mantra every day while butt naked on your lawn and doing press ups. To receive the secret mantra please send $47 via express post in the form of physical bitcoins to 333 Evergreen Terrace, Spongefield Illinois
