    Not sure of or option to "save up". It is quite valid to try IM if you can't get a job, why not, you are adapting to your situation. You need to adapt all the time to survive and be a success.

    A lot of people do, yes.

    Based on some of the people who contact me, the new entrants look something like this

    1. Out of work.
    2. Retired.
    3. Poor health.
    4. Entrepreneurial.
    5. Returning to IM

    I initially started looking into IM quite a few years ago, simply because I was sick of wasting day after day working the whole 9 - 5 job. But never really taking any kind of serious action. There for, never really finding any kind of success.

    It actually wasn't until I moved into a little town out in the middle of nowhere, when I started taking the whole IM thing more serious. Like you said, it's hard to get a job in a little town.

    It's amazing what you're able to accomplish once that desperation kicks in.

    That's my story in a tiny little nutshell.
    But to answer your question, all different kinds of people come into IM for all different kinds of reasons.

      hmm but to be frank IM need to work hard not easy.

      I also quit my job after working 15 yrs in the same old place.
      Due to changes on management become bias etc me and my colleague quit.
      He go become a cab driver
      whereas I try to focus on my IM to proof my parents that IM also a job.
      Because they keep urging me go find a job.

      Guess they are not use to see lol everyday you facing your computer whole day.

      My parents " does believe can earn money online " BUT they still prefer a person should go out work on the same time they also " does believe on IM ".

      In fact I feel the pressure , trying to proof them see my bank account got these amount earn via online

      I guess the main reason is Constant Income here as a job confirm you a regular fix constant wage per month.

      end of the month ok here your wage.

      whereas on IM , I feel is like open a shop selling , promoting .
      income is not " constant " Some days you earn some days didn't
      but at least I believe we all have a min target to meet per month.

        I didnt say IM was easy (its the hardest thing you will ever do in your life), I said why people want to get out of a job and Into IM

        A job you will always trade your time for money

        And you will always be building someone elses dream.

        IM lets you build your own dream.

    A lot of people out of work may represent a high number of those entering IM but this is rather misguided in my opinion.

    Many who enter in this way mistakenly feel that IM is an easier alternative and a way to quick cash. Many who enter in this vein inevitably fail.

    This is similar to someone with no business training, experience, or know-how losing their steady job and all of a sudden saying well I need money so I just start my own business because business owners have money.

    Every true entrepreneur knows this is a huge fallacy (not to mention way off base in regards to mindset) whether they are focused in the digital or physical space.

    I am not going to say that no one in this position will succeed or that they do not have the ability. But, they are generally beginning from the wrong view point... again, in my opinion.

    Move to a bigger city, get a job, then do IM.

    If you are just starting out and think that by doing IM you're going to make as much as you would from your normal day job, then good luck with that.

    From my experience, a lot of new entrants to IM ALREADY HAVE JOBS

    They are already working but....

    They HATE their jobs OR

    They would like to EARN MORE OR

    They want a more PASSIVE way of making a living

    From my experience, relatively FEW people flock to IM because they are DESPERATE for cash.

    Most have jobs/existing income streams already

    Start with dropping "coz" from your vocabulary. Whatever it is you decide, get serious about it and attack it like a hungry lion, consistently, all out 100%.

    An advicet I feel to do is, if you lost your job,
    search another job and do IM in the evening-night.
    It still remain an advise if you are already working.
    Don t resign cause IM, but integrate your jobs with IM untill you earn a good amount of money

    More and more people are moving to working on the internet as a way to supplement their income. The truth of the matter is that even if you're educated, the average job only pays you enough to pay your bills/ You don't make enough money to actually save money for emergencies or retire for that matter. I've had people in their 80's contact me on my blog about making money. All I can think is "What in the world?" The idea that you're in your 80's and still have to be concerned about money is nuts to me.

    IMO, here is a quick outline of a process I currently teach clients and students looking to make this IM thing work:

    1. Sell a valuable service that others need help with, that you can provide realitvely easily but is a pain in the butt for most (If everyone could do it...they wouldn't need you now would they?).
    2. Ask for testimonials as part of your testimonials or if you don't have any proof yet then make sure you're at least providing services in exchange for proof.
    3. Eventually or unless you're currently stable with some degree of regularity, be sure to develop some of your own products to sell to the market place....this is your equity.
    4. Keep developing your catalog of product offerings to the marketplace, while concurrently offering some form of a big ticket back end.
    -Membership or subscription
    -High end coaching
    -Giant fee Done for you service
    -Mastermind
    -Something
    5. The proverbial - Rinse and Repeat.

    It's Simple...not easy, and thank goodness.

    I hope that made sense and wish you the best of luck.

    Regards,

    Los

    When I started it was because I just couldn't find a job anywhere. I turned online out of desperation, which really isn't the way to go, but in a sense I'm a little bit glad I did. Because I had no cushion, succeed in IM was a necessity, not just a wish or a hope. I had to make it work, as there just weren't any other options.

    Now, it was hard! I had a reality check very early on, and I suddenly realized that there was a steep hill ahead of me, going up, up, up beyond what I could see. I was overwhelmed by it all, but I figured I'd just keep doing what I could: learn a skill, apply it. Just like climbing a mountain, the only thing you need to do is to keep putting one foot or hand in front of the other. Don't focus on the mountain or how long you think it'll take you to reach the summit, or at least a decent plateau; focus instead on what you're doing right now. Everything else is a distraction.

    It's been long and arduous, but the results are rewarding. Not just whatever monetary results you accomplish, but all the people you've helped and the discoveries you've made about yourself, your abilities, and your passion.

    Now, I'm not sure how I would help someone else in such a situation. These kinds of scenarios seem very unique to the individual experiencing them. Since my new niche is in IM (yay for a new learning curve!), I'll be thinking hard about this, but I know that there's a lot of people who come online because they're struggling in the "real" world.

    In my opinion most people go into IM because of the monetary rewards. They have seen all
    over the internet how persons made millions from IM and they want to do that too.
    At least that is what attracted me to the game lol
    Some do so because they are in financial problems and are seeking the easiest way out.

    IM requires skill and knowledge, but not formal education. Some people get into it because they can't have the lifestyle they want with the education they have, so they self-educate in an industry that doesn't check resumes.

    I think many of us start IM as a part time interest and then it grew to become a real business. For those who dived into the business, it is usually not because we can't find a job. Rather, we believe the potential in IM and how it can be a tool to achieve our dreams .

    I left my stable job in which the company was valuing me and earning a decent income.. but I left to pursue IM full time..

    Good luck!

    No man! IM is not just an option to earn money or a replacement for a job. Its a way of life - More like a lifestyle. I am into IM, inspite of having my own offline firm. I love doing IM because I enjoy what I do and also the knowledge and experience I gain from Internet Marketing helps me propel my offline business as well.

    Regarding your question, I think it depends and varies from person to person. I started dabbling in IM when I was laid off from a position due to financial cut backs and the recession. IM was my silver lining.

    I do internet marketing as my leisure activity. I stay in a rural area in my country, no entertainment, no cinema, not much sport facilities, etc. I only have a laptop and a 4GB broadband internet connection. IM kills my time very effectively.

    And, I do have a job, I work as a teacher in my country.
