First post on the forum, a little about myself: Name is Steve I first got my interest in IM from watching a friend at school my freshman year in college, he was making roughly $1000.00/month. At the age of 18 that was life changing money(still kind of is lol) But anyway, I asked him to show me how he did and he responded by saying He couldn't, that it was something hard to teach and little did I know he was more than right. Fast forward a bit and I've been scammed by "google profits"(i think that was the name), tried my hand at cashcrate(paid surveys), fooled around with GDI(MLM) gave Chris Farrel's program a shot but could not afford to keep it going and tried a course about affiliate marketing and spent my time doing nothing like 95% who fail to get started online. But it was a blessing and a curse as I have learned alot just by hangin and lurking on forums like these and this one included. But i have finally joined and like any other "newbie" I am just looking for direction. My mindset is finally improving i KNOW this can work BUT ONLY IF I WORK. It's seen over and over throughout life that systems work but people fail and I'm not just talking about IM. But thats my little rant and rave for now and a little about me. Thanks for listening and I appreciate anyone who takes the time out to help and even anyone who stops just to say hey. Hope to enjoy my stay here and learn how to finally put this IM "thing" to work for me.
