When I started IM, I had the same problem and it lasted for a long time, but we need to stop it somewhere. Imagine this scenario:
You want to open a bookshop offline, so what you do first? You start finding a good shop according to your budget then you approach suppliers to supply you books, so how much you think you need to invest? I do not know the charges in US or Europe, but here in Dubai, the rent for a shop in a relatively good place is at least $30k to $40k per year, if you want a shop in a high class shopping mall the rent is minimum $250k per year. If you want to buy a shop that is another story and you need a lot of money.
Now imagine you opened your shop and after one month you think you do not make money as you thought so you simply ignore all those efforts and investment, you close your shop and start another business. Is this realistic?
Come on guys, consider your online business the same way, you can not jump from on idea to another just because the money you invest is very low or maybe nothing.
Just stick to one idea, focus and act. If you think you can make money through EBay, then stick to it, imagine it is your bookshop and you have invested a lot of money. We can not try and hold different money making models as the same time.
In my opinion Making money online is not only easy, but it is difficult and requires lots of effort, thought and persistence and time to spend. Forget gurus saying my system makes you money just push this button. Forget how I made $xxxx in one week headlines.
Although sometimes making a real online business requires a relatively huge capital, but I wish making sites online was as expensive as offline business, then I think we did not have overload info disease.
