One Year On Warrior Forum & Full Time IM Results

33 replies
Well it was about a year ago I came back to IM and the Warrior Forum.

I was doing great for years with cartoons and freelance writing on the web but figured I needed to get more into the marketing end of things.

I quickly noticed that the scammer side of IM was put in check by people who took responsibility for the industry. That attracted me more. I then noticed some old colleagues of mine who had trickled into IM and were doing wonderful.

Most of all I noticed this place, WF, had people who loved to help others!

I bought a few WSOs and read about the successful actions of others and realized I had been doing well for years but didn't realize it, mainly because of my other interests that had me battling corporations and evil-doers and such. when I cut all that lose I realized I hadn't been enjoying life. I then made a commitment to be realistic, sane actually, about things and get that marketing knowledge under my belt.

So the big question is can IM put money in your pocket? The answer is "Heck yeah!".

If you have skills you'll do better faster. Me, I'm a professional illustrator and writer. Already had a fan base but that wasn't in the IM arena. I had to look to see how I could apply IM to other things. You would be surprised how many celebrities I know, cartoonists, artists, musicians, etc. have no clue about marketing but they will have websites that pull in millions of people a month.

I got busy. Asked questions here on WF and got answers. Actually the ONLY problem I've run into in IM so far is the reluctance I have to read any threads on WF because you have to dig through dozens of pages to get solid data, especially reading a WSO.

I've met some great people here on WF, the kind of people you will just not ever forget in a lifetime because they are so on their "A" game.

I haven't had enough time to study all the strategies and models I'd like tobut I've got the basics and with a little luck I could be in the catbird seat again.

Right now I have writing and toons doing well. I'm not even on autopilot yet with large amounts of passive income. If I made just a measly $1,500 more a month, right now, I could own my own ranch with lots of acreage, pay less than a few hundred dollars annually in property taxes and I would RULE.

Why? Because the properties cost less due to the economic collapse and because I work at home! A DSL line and I'm good to go. There are still great discounts on things for home businesses and businesses in general and all I need are a few computers and accessories and my art supplies. Everything on top of that is gravy.

So I'm looking forward to expanding soon. Increasing that passive income and also making more money drawing and writing comic books and ebooks and so on.

I must say I was able to make four figures a month quick doing IM but that's me. I came to the game with some skills. Not all of us are the same but we all have something to bring to the table.

Now it's on to bigger and better things. This week is the first week where I'll have a regular schedule and two clients are cutting big deals, BIG deals that will benefit all.

So thanks fellow Warriors, it's been one heck of a positive ride in the right direction.

    Out past San Bernadino or Up north? Just wondering!

      LOL! Not in California would I buy a great property for so low a price. The land taxes here are horrible.

      With the extension of broadband in the U.S., the once remote rural areas are now high tech. There are big farms, lots of ranch land in the U.S. going for pennies on the dollar due to the economy. You have many options. As an artist and having remodeling skills and construction skills I can save even more.

      It's great for a single person because some of these ranches have 50 to 100 acres or more with houses and barns on them for under $50k.

      If you have a family who are web savvy they could help out with IM and you should see even more savings and profits.

      I'm just one step away from total chill out permanent summer vacation again.

        I do hope you get your ranch soon.

        Right On!

        I can totally relate, having jumped heavily into IM about 7 months ago to pursue my writing and artistic passions. While, I haven't included my drawings (*mostly cartoons) into my online efforts yet, the writing part, having years of construction experience, and wanting to "get out" of Florida... to a laid back setting on some acreage is the goal for me too.

        So, I feel Ya, the only problem I have is getting my (3) FB 'hypnotized' teens to see the value in something 'other than' screwing off online and wasting time!

        -I will make believers of them... just as soon as they see me making 'real' money online, I'm confident they'll come around... or they'll be slinging burgers at the 'have it your way' for pennies!

        Great post!

        All the Best,

    Hey Evolbaby , love your post, i too would like to go full time with IM but as anewbie i havn't got many IM related skills.
    But like you say if you are willing to dig deep into some posts you'll find the answers.
    Or i guess if you ask the 'right' questions there are enough people here that are willing to share their knowkede with you.

    A great positive post that shows the real value of this forum.!!

    Oh yes. I see so many people that are good writers for example and they're writing for pennies. If they learned SEO and made a simple blog with Wordpress they could develop some cool passive income in a year or two.

      No doubt!

      I didn't realize how good I had it when I started on the web back in the '90s. Even in up to 2009 and didn't realize it. IM hadn't been perfected but I was lucky enough to have met some marketers long ago like Cory Rudl who lived up to his claims and I made some cash.

      I had been on autopilot for years but things were expensive. Now with homes going for rock bottom prices I've had to pick up the pace. With social networking things are showing far better promise. If I get my "A" game on the sky's the limit.

    Congrats on your success. I also have been involved in IM for a few years now but only joined WF about 6 months ago. I have since quit my job and work full time from home and have almost doubled my income in 3 months!

    I have a few more goals for 2012 one of which being taking my online ventures offline! I am now making a business plan and getting my husband involved too.
    IM is great and the WF is great for learning, doing business, and sharing knowledge I LOVE it here.

        Thanks for your complements. Yes its true! I had to quit my job when I fell pregnant and its the best thing that has ever happened to me! I started online by writing articles and flipping sites.

        I still flip sites but have launched several successful services on the warrior forum and have launched a couple of WSO's. I am building my business every day and WF is a fantastic resource for doing business and networking.

        I am also building up a list of buyers which is helping me every time I launch a new product.
