Whats up warriors Im just driving down the road and I got to wondering. How many other fellow warriors stills have that dreaded day job that they oh so want to leave and what type of work you do? I bet its not worst than my job.

So to start I work at round table pizza making $8 an hour as sign shaker. I work about two hours a day so in reality I only make like $16 a day less if you include taxes.

I takes my small checks and reinvest it into my cpa business and let me tell you I only make like $200 every two weeks on a good pay day.

So it can be done even for a peanut making sign shaker like myself. and t set the record straight I work still because I get free pizaa and I love my coworkers.

Plus I learn so much about people and what makes them buy.

So what do you do living?

    I'm a Director of Direct Marketing at a local Internet firm here in Marriottsville, MD. In reality, it's just a fancy title for "telemarketer" plus miscellaneous stuff like researching suppliers, answering phones, and thinking of new ways to bring in leads.

    It's incredible to work at a small business, though. You pretty much get to participate in every aspect of the company. It's great.

    Best Regards,

    I have been working as a full-time internet marketer for a relatively long time now. However, before I break the code of IM I worked as freelance web designer here in my town and also as video editor. I was making something like $350 a month. I live in Brazil and it's more here than in the US, but it still is very low.

    It was hard for me to make something works online, because I'm not a native english speaker and had no money to invest on my online business. However, I got it, and now I think that anyone can do the same with persistence and focus.

    Hi Billard,


    Full time Internet Marketer/Entrepreneur here. Luckily I saw success relatively quickly so didnt have to grind it out like many people. Natural born entrepreneur I guess.

    And assuming I play my cards right, I will never have to work for anybody again!! (except "working for investors/vc's" that sort of thing perhaps...but will never have an hourly schedule and a boss to report to)

    I know most people work full time and then convert to full time online once their online income matches their offline.

      The great thing about living in Thailand (I believe) and other countries with favorable exchange rates, is that you can earn your income in US dollars even though you live in these other countries. Each US dollar equates to a higher purchasing power.

      So, making $100 a day is a modest living here in the US but a substantial living in many places abroad.

      I had a guy a fwe weeks ago (forget which country) who said if he can get to the $50 a day mark he would be "living like a king" or something along those lines. How cool is that!

      Anywho...back on topic

        Yes, Kenster, it's true! I live in Brazil and $100 a day here is a great income (not enough to be rich, but stilll very good).

            Grrrr and to think that with the hyper inflation I am expecting, my dollar is worth even less!

            I was just PMing with somebody from Romania who said the average laborer makes $200 a week their which is 10k a year! And that was a great income over there! $100 a day is living extremely well!

            Thats great man. Stick with it! Very few people actually enjoy what they do these days.

            And thats the great thing about IM. Its much easier to "enjoy" than many other professions! If you enjoy golf, BAM go into golf related IM stuff. If you like garden gnomes, go into affiliate marketing of garden gnomes I find it sooo cool!

        I was born in the Philippines but migrated here in Canada 14 years ago and now a Canadian citizen. English is not my first language but trying hard to learn it.

        Ken is right about having a $50/day & living like a king. At the moment the conversion rate of $ 1.00 to Philippine Peso is about 45.00. If you want to have a lifestyle that is above average income earners a $600.00/month is sufficient in the Philippines.

        Anyway, my day job is working as a Technician in a aerospace industry. I've been working in this company for about 13 years now. I love my job because it's not that physical and I get along almost with everyone. My pay is one of the highest in our province. I also do wedding & portrait photography on the side. It's one of my passion.

        The reason why I'm trying to crack the code in affiliate or CPA world is I want more holidays of course. And I want my wife just to stay @ home to take care of my 10 & 12 yrs old kids. I've been off & on with internet marketing but getting serious lately. I've bought a lot of ebooks in the past, but I've discovered that CPA is one of the easiest & most lucrative online biz.

        I'm also planning to retire early so i can enjoy more quality time with my wife & kids. This is my dream or vision & i wrote that down.

        Kenster,

        That is very cool.... I had some coworkers a few years ago from India... They said the cost of living there is 10% of what it is in the US... That is amazing!

          Yes, read the 4 hour workweek and you will learn about arbitraging exchange rates and stuff. Internet entrepreneurship is perfect for this because location is normally not an issue so you can travel at will and still run your business!

    I work as a computer technician, for a govenment ministry in my country. The pay really isn't that great and these past few weeks have been tourture as I have been reassigned to a different section. As much as I like repairing computers and trouble shooting network problems, I really want to have my own business and my own financial freedom.

    I've recently got into CPA, not much success yet, but i'll keep plugging away until I can live my dreams.

    I've been a full time affiliate marketer for about three years now. Loving every minute of it.

    Just recently transitioning into running a few other companies as well. Some people love their regular jobs and will never leave - but for those of you that want to become a full time marketer - just keep taking action and you'll get there.

        Dude tell me about it, I was really heavily attempting that route after graduating from college with a business degree... Definitely glad I didn't.

        I do work 'IRL' as an IT Consultant, but also spend as much time as possible trying to make some consistent money in IM, and build a business.

          A business degree is still a great asset to have but entrepreneurship is what its all about. Make yourself rich, not others.

          And internet entrepreneurship is even better. You can literally start with $0 investment and 0 monetary risk and build a multi-mil business. :p

                Hi! Warriors,

                I love the name, entrepreneurs are Warriors, they have to be because of all the nay sayers and dream killers out there in the world. And, if you are not a Warrior, then you will be in the rat race hating life and NOT making a difference in the lives of people!

                I have been a member for several months but this is my first post. I plan to be more active in my posting probably once a week or at least once a month.

                My day job is a high school teacher for 15 years. Before this I was a repo man in graduate school. The company I worked for was unethical and I quit the job with $1200 in the bank and newly married. My first real job was a Former World Ranked Tennis Pro. This was hard to give up when I was in my 20s but I had to grow up:-) hehehe!

                I fell upon IM while trying MLM, I didn't know there were youngster in their 20s making millions. When I found this out I thought to myself I CAN do this!

                What got me hooked in was I dabbled with ClickBank and I got paid $407.00 my first check then $545.76 my second check. I thought to myself, just add zeros to this and I can quit my job as a high school teacher and spend MORE time with my wife and the 3 Mack Kids. Now, if you know anything about teachers, we work for 181 days and get 182 days off. Hard life huh? It is if you do not like teaching teenagers. But, I love to inspire and motivate the at risk kids. I love to help under dogs. But, I hate the pay although it is decent.

                Well, the economy where I live is very sluggish and my wife has been a stay at home mom with the 3 Mac Kids for 9 years. I want to transition from teaching to teaching and coaching personal development info. products on the Internet. Sometime down the road I will complete my book and membership site BeRichandHappyTOO dot com a Formula for HAPPY living you want to sit on. My frame work is a chair. I cover six areas that must be strengthened to Be Rich and Happy TOO!

                Anyhow, I lost $65k in the stock market crash in 2008. Well, I want to keep my wife as a stay at home mom and me too. I realized that I can and will succeed in this industry so I invested over $20,000 (really more but I do NOT want to my wife to panic) of my money studying Internet Marketing from three types of Internet Marketers. I talk about it in my eBook I am writing, Through the Forest of Internet Marketing. I just don't know if I should sell it or give it away to build a list and up sell the audio portion? Go to my blog here and read my two post. And, if you have a list, read my 2nd blog post, I am looking for JV partners.

                Anyhow, let me tell you that you are at the right place being here at the Warrior Forum. I think anybody and everybody who has a yearning to make a better life is here. My commitment is once I make the money I will set up a subscription membership site that I will put aside 10% of my gross profits to help make certain those who truly want to succeed in Internet Marketing will get the support of the 10% as a scholarship as long as they continue on my membership site. I know I am giving a way a strategy, but if other successful IMs do it MORE Power to US all!

                If you are honest, hardworking, and you want to build the kingdom of God. I want to be your friend. The key is to leverage our talents with good, hardworking people, that are honest, and are willing to do MUCH good in the world. Helping all those people seeking for a better life that are NOT lazy, but truly what to make an IMPACT in the world and NOT indulge in the mindset of center of the universe syndrome.

                I have no problems being transparent and in Internet Marketing it is really hard to find out really who anyone is. Check my profile and if you are good hearted and you want to change the world for good let's join forces and together let's make the money we desire (ethically) and gain financial freedom together!

                Wow! Long winded aren't I. Anyhow, I will work to build a network of Internet Marketing crusaders who want to do GOOD and HELP those who have the same desire! My talents and resources is FOCUSED on this objective!

                Check me out and do your due diligence and let's work together and build a team of honest, hardworking, do gooders on the Internet to HELP the honest and sincere at heart people who have jobs they HATE, And their potential is hidden under a rock.

                My wife is only giving me until Sept., 2011 to do this or else I will be a school teacher the rest of my life and I will have to bury my passion for entrepreneurship! Sad day if that happens that is why I am working very hard and studying as MUCH as I can to reduce the learning curve. NOW, it is time for me to TAKE MASSIVE Action!

                I know it is a BIG Introduction for my first post! However, when you get to know me you will know that I am a no nonsense pragmatic result oriented GOOD Hearted man who loves God, family and country...and I am a complete 2nd Amendment supporter! Done:-) LOL was that long?

                  You seem like a nice guy and I hate to be harsh, but 20 freaking grand!? If you are still not making any consistent money then whomever you gave that kind of money to took you for a ride.

                  The only thing you need to spend money on initially is hosting and a domain. That is 15 bucks. This isn't the stock market, if you want to make money you need to make a time investment not a monetary investment (at least in the beginning). And by time investment I don't mean reading ebooks.

                  Put away the credit cards and start doing the work. That is the only way you will learn.

        How true is that? I currently work as a trial consultant. What this means is that I help lawyers figure out what social issues are going to influence the outcome of their cases- I do mock trials, demographic research, qualitative research, etc. It was my way of capitalizing on the fact that I have fancy degrees in the social sciences from fancy ivy league schools.

        But I say that because the bottom line is this. I was working on a graduate degree at the University of Chicago (which is among the best schools in the world for social sciences) and realized I didn't want to do that. I was taking a class from a human rights lawyer- and I thought I wanted to do that. But he told me to work in the field for awhile to make sure I was right- because a lot of people think that, get a law degree, then quit. Best advice I ever got.

        I don't want to spend my life bickering with people who obviously broke the law- I don't want to count my hours in six minute increments (defense attorneys do that)- and I don't want to be at the office till midnight fighting with giant egos.

        Thus- started seeing success in PPC and have been having a good time building two authority websites (although they're stupidly time consuming). I'm also building a business with my sister- who happens to work for the world's leading web analytics firm- so we're going into business to consult on "integrated marketing" as I'm calling it. I'll pull the traffic in- she'll convert it.

    Full-time Mom of 4 here - I work on my IM throughout the day in between cooking, cleaning, and driving kids around.

    From 1998 through May 2009 I had my own very successful web design/programming business. I was so busy that for 3 years my Accountant hubby stayed home and did the Mr. Mom thing. However, when the economy tanked, my main clients couldn't afford me anymore. I was also a bit tired of helping everyone else's bottom line, so I started looking into IM.

    I'm now able to earn online about half of what I was making at the peak of my web design career, but it's enough to pay the bills, and I'm continuing to work on increasing it.

      Use your SEO knowledge to build organic campaigns. Its always good to leverage what you already know into your CPA strategy.


      An SEO business is great, but im always a fan of making myself rich, not others. With your experience, you should have no problem jumping right into the CPA action!

    I'm a chiropractor myself... Just finished school a few years ago, bought a practice, expanded it to include two massage therapists, and now work only about 25 hours a week myself.

    Why IM for me? While I do love my job (who wouldn't like making people feel better every day), and I make quite a bit for the little work I do, I'm still stuck working set hours and tied down to the location I'm at.

    I'm doing pretty good for 30 years old I think... I'm actually drinking a beer right now on my back deck looking over the water... but I'm looking for something more!

    My goal... sell my practice in 2-3 years, work fulltime doing IM, and travel about whenever I can!

    I'm certain everyone has the ability to get where they want to be... just have to get out there and do something about it!

    Sorry for the long winded ramble... maybe had a beer or two too many

I have a pool of clients built up over the past 6 years where i handle their financial goals such as insurance planning and investment portfolio. I started internet marketing about a few months ago when i realise the power and extent of leverage that it can reach by the power of technology.I am also a fan of robert kiyosaki and read many of his books such as cashflow quadrant. Building a online network marketing business will certainly allow me the ability to build a "B" quadrant business that will generate consistent cashflow.

    I work every guys "dream job" as a brewer. Yep, that's right, I make the sweet alcoholic beverage that many enjoy. While this may seem like a dream job to many, it is very physically demanding and I am getting burned out on it.

    However, I started IM'ing a few years ago and have made money to pay for our family vacations each year for the last 3 years so that is nice. It has allowed me to buy some fun toys and some nice things for the wifey for sure.

    Right now I make about $1k / month, but need to increase this to $5k / month before I stop working my 9-5 and start working from home.;

      My day job is of a research scientist on computer science. It is not about building software, but about bringing innovative thoughts on the table, on behalf of a top-3 IT company of the entire world. As a result of my research, I write research papers that are published in computer science journals andd conferences, and also create technology patents. I love my day job and as I think of it today, probably it is something that I shall not give up even if that means compromising a lot of money that could have been earned if I had invested that much time and energy towards IM.

      Having said that, I love IM too. I work with my partner Sudeshna part-time on this. Have worked on SEO and article writing with good success, and quite a few #1 Google ranks and many more page-1 Google ranks in a little less than a year and half. But I am pathetic at selling and suck at making websites andd writing copies that sell well. So my IM income is still not high enough, though on an average I do see $2-3K every month.

      Hoping to break the barrier with CPA now - in fact, purchased Kenster's Rags to Riches right today from my partner Sudeshna's account. I know a couple of offers that I shall promote - one of them will be promoted bery seriously, but trying to work out some details of AzoogleAds before I go ahead.

        Hi Kev, how great is that feeling?! That sudden liberation on your last day of your JOB and your first day of your full time internet career is beyond words. Congrats on the transition and most people see a tremendous increase in earnings within 6 months of switching because of the more time and effort that can be dedicated to their online efforts. If you havent seen this jump yet...keep working, its right around the corner!!

          Hi Kenster,

          Yes was an amazing feeling

          You are right, I have seen a huge increase, months 4 5 and 6 of this year it really started to kick, and last month was my first six figure month. It was helped by one of the companies I promote having a new product launch ( No not IM, don't do goo roo launches) so though I won't hit that number this month, there is no doubt the switch for me paid off. Saying that it was still a long tough road for me before it came together.

          Infact replying to you here, I think I will put the story up for next week, hopefully it can help a few others too.

            Sweet job It just goes to show how much more productive, efficient, and effective, you can be when you focus 100% of your efforts on it as opposed to just doing it part time.

            For example, if you work 20 hours a week, you may be able to build a consistent 3k a month. But, when you go full time and switch to 40 hours per week, you will probably get to the point of making a consistent 10k a month so your results magnify. Or in your case, you can hit six figure months right away.

            I love hearing success stories like this and think your whole story (as you mentioned) should be shared with the community here! Cant wait to hear it

      I'm an Integration Specialist. I develop interfaces between applications that want to exchange data. I've been doing it full time for the past 11 years. As a matter of fact, on Monday, I start working for a friend of mine who's very business savvy. I'll be working from home and this will give me the chance to work on developing my online business.

      Let me give you an example of what integration is. The market for the company I work for is hospitals. When someone goes to the emergency, a clerk enters the person's data in the emergency registration app. That app then sends the info to my interface engine. I transform the data format to fit the different apps who are interested in the data, like lab, pharmacy, financial, etc...

      In order to be good at doing that kind of job, you have to be skilled at many things : SQL, TCP/IP, HL7, OSes ( mostly Windows nowadays ), computer networks, etc... I'm not highly skilled at any of these, but I know enough to be very competent at developing and installing reliable interfaces.

    Blah...Im the operations manager for your local taco bell. Not the best job out there but pays the bills along with IM. I just hate working with all those annoying teens that complain about everything and are lazy as hell. Easy to manipulate though. I tell them I make money online and they are all like OMG! and want to start up. So I send them my cpa referal link and get 5% of what they make. I know they probably wont make a dime, but hey, I might hit the right person and have them throw a coulple 20's my way.

    I work for a large energy company as a Customer Service Advisor. Used to have my own offline business but had to walk away early last year

    Anyway my basic salary is good, plus bonuses and rewards for sales etc. Paid holidays and sick leave if I need it. Just have to get up early every morning and don't get home until 7pm. It's great to know the bills are being paid and that I am being paid, but my heart still yearns to be my own boss, hence my return to the Warrior Forum. Hopefully this time I'll be able to find the time required to realise my dream and turn it into a reality!

    I used to be a Bakery Manager working 50 -70 hrs a week. starting at midnight, 4am,6am,8am and 10 am all in the same week sometimes!! You just don't know when to sleep and are exhausted all of the time.

    I was sat in starbucks one day watching some guy walk past all suited and booted. He looked really smart, not like me in my grubby white (ish) work clothes.

    I said to my fiancee. "I wanna go to work in a suit doing a 9-5 job". It was a dream of mine. That dream came true.

    Now I'm a sales manager for a well known retailer in the UK. I work less hours, with less stress, less responsibility and alot more money.

    I like my job but I don't love it. It's good because I have time to spend with my family (fiancee and daughter, with another on the way - hehe), the money is OK, it's challenging but sometime abit boring. The people where I work are all great and we have a laugh.

    Now my dream is to work from home, not having to find babysitters and trying to arrange appointments around work. Working whenever I want instead of when my employer wants. Not having my income limited to what my employer chooses to pay me.

    I got my dream once and I'll do it again.

    I'm 16 and still in High School, but I guess you could technically say I'm a "Pro Gamer" as I make around 1,000 a month making youtube videos and getting money from ad revenue. I found IM really interesting and I want to major in business in college, so I thought I'd look into it some more, maybe get a few more dollars here or there to help with tuition. I think being somewhat of a youtube personality could help me get traffic on a website too.. Do you guys think IM is worth getting into while still in High School? Its kinda hard enough to balance 3 varsity sports, gaming and homework haha.

        I'm in support of that plan. I have "the University of Oxford" on my resume- and a Master's in cultural anthropology also from an Ivy League. Those two things have landed me jobs I really wasn't qualified for- and I currently make 50% more than people in my office in equivalent positions to me. Whether I'm actually better at doing things or not, I don't know- but it shows an employer you can apply yourself and have a brain. So I'm all in support of staying in college. (That and the fact that I'm a nerd and love school.)

        That said- if you can make gobs of money at IMing and that's your dream, more power to you. My dream is actually to make enough money to go back to school. :rolleyes:

        On another note, this is sort of a cathartic thread. It's easy to feel like you're the only one still working the dreaded "day job." Thanks to the OP!

        (On a funny day job note- this is the level of tech at my day job- one of the partners in the law firm dropped by my office while I was writing this to ask if I had a casetter recorder. I had to specify that he really meant the kind that you put in a walkman. Who does that?)

          What's a casette?


          Hehe, I think you bring up a good point about formal education. Do you need a formal education from a top 20 school to get anywhere in this world...absolutely not. I've been there and know first hand that most of what you learn is crap and not applicable to what you will ever do.

          But, if you can get good grades at a good school it shows potential employers that you CAN get things done, that you DO have the aptitude to understand complex concepts, that you know how to manage time and work hard and sacrifice. This doesnt mean that somebody without a formal education isnt the same or better than you at a given position, but its at least a good indicator you arent a complete dud. Employers are willing to pay for this little extra comfort.

          As for CPA marketing and IM marketing, we are all on a pretty level playing field. If you work hard, sacrifice, are dedicated, have time management, etc you WILL GET FAR, no matter what type (if any) education you have.

          You control your own destiny...its pretty cool!

      I've been a full time affiliate marketer since May 2009. Fifteen months is a long time in this industry. It feels like forever. I was 21 when I setup my own business, and it's grown from there. Making more money every day, living the dream, and I wouldn't trade it for any 9-5 gig in the world.

      I would say sacrifice some sleep and play to get your IM earnings equal to your day job and if you feel its consistent than make the GOLDEN SWITCH over to full time IM. Then work your butt off for another year or two setting up automated streams, and then live he affiliate lifestyle.

      The good thing about living in much of South east Asia is that with the exchange rate, you only need to pull 50-100 to live a very great lifestyle. In much of SE Asia, thats a very very good lifestyle, less so in some of the bigger cities of course like Bangkok, Singapore, etc

    I don't have a day job, and I will never get one. Because I know how to make money online and I don't need somebody else to administer me or to pay for my work. I am not at the level that I want to be yet, but working for myself gives a chance to me. Working for others, I don't see a chance...

    If you can make money online in whatever way, work harder on it and try your best to bring it to a stable level so that you will not worry about a day job anymore.

    Hi everyone. I love my day job! I work from home as a remote employee for a major Middle Eastern-based supply chain solutions/management company as their technical writer.

    I have yet to get my IM business (a non-IM niche) off the ground but I am gathering info and developing a business plan first with the hopes of launching something by July 2011 in the form of a blog. I can't say I want to give up my day job as I already work from home but I am looking forward to learning as much as I can about IM and earning more money to help pay down some debt and assist my child with college costs. What a great post by the original poster. How exciting to see how all the Warriors spend their time! You Warriors are a very cool bunch with a myriad of talents I see!

    I just dropped out from College..lol!

    I am living a very comfy life with the money I earn from IM.

    I am from India - So $10K per month is SUPER SUFFIECIENT for me!

    And

    People who are double the age over here dont make even 10% of what I earn..so people look at me as if I am some demigod or something...

    So - Keep working on IM - You will make it!

    (P.s: I am working hard on CPA - I actually am taking advantage of a loophole I found with the search engines and I am shooting traffic to my articles...Hope it comes out well....)

    Prior to being a full time entrepreneur, I was a financial advisor for 5 years. I hated that job with a passion. It was horrible. All I ever did was follow the advice of the "expert analysts" who had an awesome track record of losing all my clients a lot of money. It was very stressful. I hated it.

    I takes my small checks and reinvest it into my cpa business and let me tell you I only make like $200 every two weeks on a good pay day.

    So it can be done even for a peanut making sign shaker like myself. and t set the record straight I work still because I get free pizaa and I love my coworkers.

    Plus I learn so much about people and what makes them buy.

  • I was a commercial pilot. - and I loved flying.

    Until I had a seizure. The FAA took away my pilot medical and I had 6 figures in student loans to pay off.

    So I took to the internet to pay them off quick - since I had a new wife that wanted security that was all-the-sudden gone!

    So, I took to eBay (of all places) where I was able to get out of debt on the 1-year anniversary of my seizure!

    It was a blessing in disguise, but it has helped us grow a lot closer.

    Since then, I've taught hundreds of people what I learned from eBay and I give out a free eBook showing people what I did as well - I think it's the least I could do to 'pay it forward'.

    And it's okay that you're making pizzas.

    I did factory work at a lasagna factory in college! GRAVEYARD shift! It gets better, bro.

    I run my own electronic security firm in the uk. I got into Internet marketing after struggling for new business so decided to build a web site. This then got me into seo and joining all the forums. From what I picked up I managed to get myself in the top 3 spots for every area in my region and bag myself around £1000-2000 a week in profit from job leads. Since then it spiked my interest in the power of IM so decided to get into PPV recently. I am happy to say that so far I am in profit and looking to move more into making money online. I find it very rewarding and hopefully I can make more money from the web than I would doing much harder labour fitting security. Don't get me wrong, I do love my day job and it can pay great but I won't be able to do it all my life. It can be very exhausting and dirty work. I would much rather use it to fund my web work and move me into the warm at some point

      I am a developer for renewable energy technologies, which in my case means low
      tech solutions. That is as interesting as it can get, and will hopefully help people
      especially in developing countries.

      One project was solar heating for a school in the himalaya region to stop the heating
      with dried cow dung which causes a lot of health problems for the school kids.

      There are more amazing projects in the pipeline but I need to run them as a non
      profit organization, and to get that going I need 30K seed capital - which is the
      reason I am here in Internet Marketing. So far I have not been too successful, but I
      don't give up.

      I must admit though that at times I am not too focused on Internet Marketing since
      my "day job" with the renewable energy projects is just too interesting.

      I just finished a nine month trial heating water for showers and so in a large house in
      cold Germany just with waste biomass which worked very well.
