Most of you (us) are here to learn how to make an income online, a good income at that.
Well let me tell you that I started in 2010 and my first year was fairly good. But my second year was awesome.
Everything I'm doing online made over $70,000 in 2011, which is huge because that's more money than my mom makes in almost 4 years.
With that money I've been able to help her with rent, help my friends with money, buy the things that I wanted, and put money towards my future.
But, I will say that money also has a downside. Near the end of 2011, I began to feel like I was more important than other people, like I was some kind of super hero.
Since then I've learned that money does have an evil side to it if you let it effect you that way, but I'm also learning that as people, we change drastically when we are put into these situations.
Some people become greedy and mean.
Luckily, I didn't go down that path. I want to help those around me so that they can have someone to rely on and believe in. I never want to let someone feel like I'm better than them again. And that's a difficult thing to do especially when people say things to me relating to my career online.
I'm over here worried about not wanting to pay for a truck/car in full because I hate paying payments, while there are people that are looking at me like I'm crazy because I have that opportunity.
So, point of this entire post is to tell you not to let the money get ahead of your dreams. There are many great things about money, but there are also a ton of downsides to having money, so don't lose yourself. I'm picking up those pieces now and it hurts.
