About the same time I was basking in the joy of a tidy house and happy me it dawned on me that I needed extra money.

Ummmm duh! That's why I had been at IM in the first place. So quitting wasn't an option. And I swear it was pretty much the same day that I received an email offering an outsourcing service that would build me one great site for a large fee.

I read all about it. It would be one big site built around good keywords with good traffic potential. He would also create a product that I could sell and I think he was also going to promote the site for me with backlinks. The price was just under $1500.00 and the offer was only open for 7 days. He had said that I only need to sell XX products per month to break even and that would be easy... I was sold. The next day, I bought it. I swear I know better but I'm telling you I was ripe for the picking - I needed someone to do the work for me so this made sense.

Two weeks later there was nothing done yet. I had emails from him saying why he had delays but to say I was very nervous about this would be an understatement. This guy had also been banned from WF (I found this out after I purchased). Still he seemed nice enough through the emails so I waited.

Then in an odd twist of fate (or was God helping me out??) he refunded my money. Said he was upset with Paypal and would appreciate it if I would pay him by another means because Paypal was holding his money for 6 months.

I understood his pain but since I desperately wanted my money back, AND I hadn't seen any work done yet - even though after two weeks he'd said the site would be done - I held on tight to that refund.

Result: I now know what I really need to succeed at IM is to outsource every bit of what I want done
