    You are already making money. You just need to scale it up. I am trying to reach what you are earning, so don't be disheartened,you are doing it right. Just don't fear about anything and when the time demands don't fear to take risks.

    I was going full throttle with IM for 4 years and had nothing to show for it except a negative bank account and a lot of missed opportunities. Then I took a 8 month hiatus, started back up January first, and by the end of January I had generated over $1,000 on amazon by selling ebooks (no PLR, all non fiction).

    I know how you feel, and so does everyone else who's been in this business. It isn't for everyone, it takes time, and a lot of grit. Some people reach success earlier than others, but they're few and far between.

    The two things that enabled me to do what I did were:

    ONE: I abolished my love of money. Money was my god. Even though I didn't have any, I still worshiped it. When I finally aligned my priorities, and stopped worshiping money, it came almost instantly.

    The second reason was one part belief, and one part focus. I believed that I could make money selling ebooks through KDP, and I focused solely on that. I got one WSO (by Johnny Andrew) and I implemented what I learned. Because of that, I'm making money every month.

    You will make it, if you persevere, and you get your priorities straight. A lot of people will tell you that you have to want success more than anything else or you won't reach it. I believed that for a long time, but when I abolished that belief, good things started to happen.

    Figure out what you like to do, at least somewhat, and then focus on that ONE area 100%.

    Carpe Diem,
    -Ryan

    If you can't design your website, you can try finding a web designer, pay him and he will make a website for you.
    Any other technical aspects could also be outsourced.

    2000 is not measly* and you need to scale up, get more sites running, use what you know about IM i.e. write about it.

    * ask starters like myself and besides, you can put some of this back, invest and expand *

    Well I think 3 things may help you:

    1) Change your mindset - this is often the last thing people do but the biggest IMO. Get clear on what you want and spend 10 mins a day visualizing how good it feels now that you have it.

    2) Focus - Just pick 1 thing and stick with it. It's no good implementing tons of ideas if you never master one of them. You'll either learn the technical along the way or find someone to do if for you for cheap. But you must focus. Write out a plan and stick with it.

    3) Traffic - you can have all the great websites in the world but if you've got no traffic then you've got no sales. you say you could write books, but doing it is where the real learning is. Test test test! Paid and unpaid.

    If you need money, then sell some services here to get some cashflow. Then apply some of that knowledge. But number 1) is the key - mindset!!

    Remember failure is good!!! All the successful people fail more than the unsuccessful people. Not doing anything at all is what is stopping you - not failure.

    What I have done and worked for me was:

    1) come up with my system after buying tons of guide and went to several workshops spending lots of money.

    2) I focused on the system and never gave up

    3) I write done my plan of actions on a daily basis

    4) I have monthly goals to meet, that give me motivation

    Hope that helps,
    Simon

    My experience is similar to your but I did not give up and kept pushing forward only with things that work - If you're making money with something then (though Fear of using an awlful term)- Rinse and Repeat then scale it up.

    Add gigs to Fiver, offer services on eBay, keep writing for your blogs and something soon will come big and you may hit that full time wage!

    There is such an error in being afraid!

    Try building something on your own, there are thousands of wordpress tutorials on the internet, just TAKE ACTION man!

    Don't say ''I can't'' because only someone stupid is allowed to say it! If you have a problem, hit your head on it, look on the internet, tell us what the problem is and you will see that it takes no time to get over it.

    You are making a big error saying here that ''you are afraid'' because this is not like a yell for help, you are looking for someone to tell you ''is ok, don't worry'' when what you should do is start working hard and TAKE ACTION and when you meet a specific problem just post it here, there are a lot of good guys willing to help you!

    Put a goal in your mind, either is building a free wso as a start or building a website. Keep us informed on the progress and just ask for help when you have a specific problem!

    Exactly , the only thing I can think of to be afraid of is not making money
    and if u are afraid that means you wont take action and you will be assured of not making more money

    Don't worry much about the technicalities involved, you can always (and ideally should) outsource them and concentrate on building the strategy and marketing part of your business.

    How come that it's not possible to earn $70/day? Of course it's possible, as long you stay focused and never giving up. You won't be successful if you're afraid to fail. We know that failure is not an option, but in order to make it work, we must be ready to fail.

    I am just like you last year when I'm still struggling, I'm afraid to fail and not taking serious action. Until my friend convinced me to change my attitude, it was the time that I'm not afraid to fail anymore. Did you know that for every failure you had, you have improved and gained something in order not to make that same mistake again.

    FAIL, FAIL, FAIL, FAIL, FAIL, FAIL, FAIL, FAIL, FAIL...SUCCESS!!!

    Nothing is easy here pal, just don't give up and keep trying. Test, test and test until you find something that really works for you everyday.

    Good luck!

    Jeff

    Hi josh,

    Actually, I would like to congratulate you for your achievements!
    What are your reasons for doing IM in the first place? I think by having a good reason to do the things that you do will get you in the right way.
    ... and Nike puts it right: JUST DO IT!
    Don't be afraid to fail, failing helps us win. Like me, I got my Adwords account banned, I got my facebooks ads account banned! I failed! But that is part of the game... now I got new traffic sources that I use on a daily basis to make money. I just go on. I just do it. I win some, I lose some... I fail but I take the lesson from my failures and do something about it. and then I win...once I get the best, I still make my best better...
    And when $70 per day seem impossible to me... I raise my faith expectations and target $700 per day! That motivates me to really do my best.

    ... and my secret is to celebrate even my little achievements. By doing that, I am recharged and ready to do my next to do list.

    Hey mate, you are doing good ...don't be afraid of anything..the worst that can happen is that you'll fail but remember you'll learn something out of it..moreover, its better than not trying at all..
    As for your technical skills, i would suggest that there's too much stuff on the internet if someone has a desire to learn... even i'm not technical but i did learn like everyone does as affiliate marketer through research on the interent.. designing a website on wordpress is not a great deal..just learn some basic html...from the net...search for various free templates available on the net....& start making a wordpress site..if I can build a site, I'm sure you can as well..

    don;'t be afraid man..you'll only learn if you try..if you gonna sit there & ponder how you gonna do this or that..I'm afraid you'll gain none...

    Good Luck !

    Hey Josh,

    The figures you are qouting are not only very realistic but completely doable, to me it sounds like a mindset issue and unfortunately that is something that only YOU can change.

    By all means we can give you support and tell you to TAKE ACTION and JUST DO IT however only you can physically ensure that you take the steps you need to take to success. You state you know a lot about IM already and could write a book about it. Is this material that you can use to start generating an income?

    My advice would be to use the knowledge you already have and start implementing that with which you feel most comfortable, however, don't place any pressure or expectations on yourself. It is one thing to know theory, it is a completely different thing to go out and actually implement and generate an income from. Start with the mindset of someone who is completely new and fresh, get back into a learning mindset but learn through doing instead of reading. Think of every failure as a lesson that will help you to profit next time a similar situation arises

    Lose money on a campaign?? you just bought yourself a lesson, a campaign starts off at a negative ROI?? guess what, you're buying data to ensure success. Everything thing you do is a learning process.

    Like I said we can repeat often heard mantra's all day long at you but you need to implement. A better way for us to help you is if you let us know what action you are taking, what campaigns you are running, what you;re doing on a day to day basis.

    That way we can point you in the right direction for profitability and success.

    A person like this will really never make it in my opinion. The OP has yet to even post back on all of the great advice and support that was given here. I think the most important thing for anyone to do in ANY industry is stay persistent. Our society is way to fixated on instant gratification, and it is severely hurting our society's work ethic.

    Hay Josh,
    Whether it turns out to be right or wrong just do it,

    God loves a trier and so much is learned. I am a theorist by nature,
    so I set about thinking I had to learn everything about IM before I could start.

    Glad that attitude has changed. Take action. Goals are key I totally agree with what the other chaps are saying. Stick to one thing as well, awesome advice.

    Just don't get caught it fearing you will pick the wrong thing to the point where you are frozen with fear. Takes a lot of creative energy being frought like that.

    Even if you get it wrong and change the plan, its cool. prob got something useful for later out of it and some more experience.

    I was once driving a friend of mine to an allotment(one of the few people I know that talks more than I do), we were setting up a community interest company and wanted to get a project going for ex service men/school kids/the aged, to bring them to a organic patch for a healthy day out in the fresh air. We stopped to get snacks. She came back to the car with little present for me, a shiny black tea mug. I'll never forget what it had written on it.

    ''Be consistent on principle, Flexible on strategy''

    I have had analysis paralysis most of my life,
    this IM game is snapping me out of it.
    Take massive action, get massive results.

    Thanks to everyone who posted on this one and all the rest I read. You are all incredibly helpful on here at WF,
    I totally appreciate the daily support.

    You talk about your sites, designs and and stuff. But you forget the most important parameter for making 70$ a day - How Much Traffic You Get Daily?

    Why can't you design a website?

    Look at the skills you need to learn and set about to learn them.

    There's information on everything and every topic out there. Acquire the information you need to succeed and take action.

    I think you need to change your mindset. Maybe you should start meditating. I've heard a 10 day Vipassana retreat does wonders for your mind. IF not meditate 20 minutes a day and you'll be far more focused and relaxed which will allow you to view things from a wider perspective. That will allow you to make moves with an idea of what you want to achieve.

    If you break out of this mind set you can earn this type of money, you have to know what failure is to now what success feels like.
