Making Money While You Walk Along the Beach

33 replies
Making money while you walk along the beach is just about the best feeling in the world.

As many people here will know, I quit the day job to go full time in IM last September. So it's been almost a year now - you know, I still can't believe how time flies when you are enjoying yourself. I have been busy over this time forging strategic partnerships with people on a win-win basis and things are really beginning to pay off now.

We moved to Somerset because I wanted to live by the sea and that's one of the best things about working on the internet; you can live wherever you want. It is such a lovely day here that I decided to take the afternoon off, just walking along the beach with my wife and our dog.

I just got back and logged in to check how things are going. Another couple of hundred bucks had just dropped in to my account whilst I had been out. It is a wonderful feeling after all the time and effort I put in - many people here will know that I have dedicated myself to this project for the past 8 years - but now, finally, things are moving much more quickly than they have in the past and you just can't get the smile off my face.

To anyone just starting out, I hope this post gives you some encouragement. It's not rocket science; it's common sense coupled with focus and dedication and you can do it too.

    You're living my dream right now Will. A dog & the beach is all I've ever wanted. I've quit the job once before, but then I lost sight of things. Now I'm working for it again...soon I hope.

    It has been four and a half years now since I last stood in a classroom and I don't miss it one bit. I love taking holidays, taking a day off or just relaxing in a coffeshop with a magazine. No working to the strict deadlines of a timetable and trying to do IM when I could find time.
    I worked very hard back in the day but not so much know. Things reached the tipping point and I never looked back from then. I never knew life could be so simple. My friends hate me.

  • I like going to the movies and coming out knowing I have been paid, go to the grocery store, I get paid, walk on the beach, I get paid, I like it the feeling of getting paid for my efforts.

    That's the best part of successful IMs
    You just need your brain and a PC and an internet line. That's it.
    Till now I don't have the guts to leave my 9-5 job. but pray for me. I will do that soon.

    If you are on the right track then one day you would get the returns, I would say much more than just returns but you should have dedication.

    Action takers are the money makers. Well deserved Will, congrats.

    I'm like 4 minutes from the beach here on Long Island, but today I'd be making money while walking in the rain lol. However, last night I was making money while watching Batman and the day before that I was making money while playing hoops. I think tonight I'm going to make money while eating Thai :-).

    I remember viewing the world differently after I quit my job. The feeling is truly wonderful and scary at the same time. Only one way to find out which feeling is true. I start dedicating more than 12 hour a day on learning IM. And finally, now, the fruit is all over the place.
