He approached me because of he knew I was self employed working online and he wanted to know if he could do the same thing.
It put me in a dilemma because I wanted to say 'Yes, of course you can'.
But I couldn't!
I know what kind of person he is and knew that he wouldn't be motivated to get up on a morning and do all that he had to do that day to make progress.
I also worried that because he was so low on funds his financial situation would get worse over the coming months as he tried to apply what he had learnt.
My advise to him was to try and get a job with a regular income to get back on his feet and I said that I would spend some time showing him some basics of IM that might help him get established.
In my heart I know I gave him good advice but I still feel bad.
Internet marketing is not easy and it does require lots of hard work and determination to succeed.
What advice would you give members of your family if they were in a similar situation?
Would you advise them to get a salary paid job or enter IM?
