I have been trying IM for about a year now since deciding I don't want to be location dependent and more importantly not have a boss anymore. I got the opportunity to travel the world from 19 years old and work and live in some great countries like Tokyo and the U.K.. I also raised my income to almost 200K a year at this time. I got to live the life I wanted, travel, vacations, and all that comes with it. I also had a bosses to answer too and came to not enjoy my job anymore. I wanted a as I call it "free to roam" lifestyle. Work from the Maldives, Scotland, or anywhere lifestyle. I moved back to the United states and invested in a promising start-up. After a year in a half I realized I was working 15 hours a day to make someone else rich. I was an employee with only a promise of future ownership. I went from making 180K a year to 30K. My wife and I lost our house in the U.K. and had a daughter. We struggle living in Dallas making around 60K between us. Since starting IM I'm at a loss profit wise. I bought into the programs, E-books, coaches, and promises. I know I am a work horse. I know Im intelligent and have a mindset to conquer any goal I have. I know my wife is incredibly talented and intelligent as well but we are at wits end. Is the whole goal of IM to sell products about how to do IM. Is that the only way to truly be free? The last program we used I literally found everything in the program within 30 minutes online. I even packaged it into a nice little "course" myself and sent it to my "coach". This is a highly respected course in this forum and in podcast as well. Of course I was refused a refund and was actually told I should sell my course and they would show me how!!! No! I don't know what I'm doing, people shouldn't buy something I sell.
The thing is I do have great Ideas in great niches that I now would work. Maybe not millionair idea, but maybe. I just need to know how to make them happen. People keep saying having drive is the hard part that can't be taught. I learned drive by living poor and working myself to make 6 figures in my early 20s only years after driving a car with literally holes in the door and paying with change for gas to barely make it home.
This may just be a vent but I'm hoping there are actually people on this site that aren't just trying to sell me a program or course. Someone that can just talk to me and hear my ideas and maybe set me in a direction. Someone successful or not.
Also, I have wanted to connect with people like me. The lost souls of IM. I wanted to do a podcast that was one huge case study with an audience that could grow with me and a co-host from nothing to hopefully a great lifestyle we all dream of but haven't found the right person to be involved with me.
Thanks to anyone that read this. It wasn't helpful, or useful to the internet or anyone really but it was nice to vent. lol
