Is there anyone else out there in the wider Warrior world who still, perhaps against 'expert' advice, looks for the easier IM ways to success? I know that this is so often not advised, by this guru and another, and I am not challenging their expertise one jot. I'm also very happy to state that there are plenty of scam-ridden, unworkable, shortcut rip-off systems out there that are definitely not worth your time and effort!
However, for some, the online dream still has that elusive glimmer, no matter how ill-advised, that easy (or at least 'easier') riches may still be a possibility. The fact is, some open-minded business types have tried out somewhat far-fetched ideas at times and hit the jackpot. It happens! And besides, if like many IM 'work slaves' out there, you toil for impossibly long hours to achieve the 'Internet lifestyle', but don't really enjoy your life, what was the point of it all in the first place!?
I guess the drive of this thread is that I encourage you not to totally let go of your IM dreams, even if they do fit in to the time-saving, frowned upon folder. Some of the greatest innovators in history have achieved big success as they dared to go against the majority and stuck to their own personal plan, no matter what. Sometimes, you just gotta believe in yourself!
In closing, I would never advise you to to engage in any illegal, or shady online activities in your efforts to get ahead. Do it the right way! But never let anyone tell you your ideas are Impossible! Take advice where necessary, adjust your goals if needed. Keep your dreams alive. And good luck!
