I've always been into self development, and my plan from the beginning was to do what's necessary to set up a passive income stream, then to leave IM, and venture out into the world and develop myself as a person through travel, entertainment, interaction with random individuals, and challenges I set for myself.
So the mistake I'm making with IM is I just want to get it out of the way.
I think I've come across a better offer than IM. My brother got this random job with a direct marketing company. These guys train people to sell stuff on the street. After you get good at selling, you start training others to sell, and you keep a portion of their commissions. So you end up with a team of people who are earning money for you.
What's really cool is they have mentors who are already earning hundreds of thousands, teaching you every step of the way.
The reason I think this is better for me than IM, is it'll help me to develop people-skills. I'll be interacting with people every day face-to-face, and learning how to persuade and entertain.
I'll also be developing a REAL skill, so if I ever want to come BACK to IM, I'll have something that I'm a REAL expert in that I can teach other people online.
With IM I've always just wanted to get it out of the way so I can be free to develop myself. With this job, I'll be developing myself on the job.
Meh, still thinking about it. I won't leave IM completely, I still want to learn how to create a huge following of people who are eager to listen to what I have to say, and eager to buy anything I recommend - just like Frank Kern. I just don't think it'll work when I'm desperate for money, have no mentors to guide me, and have the mentality of just wanting to get it out of the way.
Anyway, just thought I'd share this with you folk. Maybe others here have had similar thoughts about IM, maybe IM isn't right for you if you see it as something you just want to get out of the way so you can be free while living on a passive income.
