Now I will admit I came into the picture quite a ways after the fact, however since when I was a young teenager I was entranced at the sight of having my own special piece of the internet.
This has led me down a long road of life x technology x business that = where I am today and where I will be tomorrow
There is a problem in Internet Marketing nowadays, there is a sickness, there is something that must be dealt with.
The fact is we allow and perpetuate this among beginners through unintended disinformation and allowing things along the lines of "set it and forget it" type requests.
We became successful IMers because we worked hard and LEARNED.
Not because we found the coolest new software that does it for us.
or because we finally talk to that one guy.
Come on! We need to turn this community into a true Customer Relations and Marketing community with top notch respect for business and the hard work involved.
There's a problem and it's only us who can fix it.
