    The idea of finally being able to explore what I'm capable of, live life on my terms, and help people all over the world do the same!

    My motivation to become an internet marketer is to excel in a field that is totally out of my comfort zone.

    working for yourself is not for everyone, but everyone wishes they can do it. Be the ones that can do it. I will never work for someone else and be told what to do.

    I think eBay sparked the light bulb in the head and made me realize you can make money online selling stuff.

    My parents always told me to finish college to get a good job and "be happy".
    But with a college degree in this country I'd hope for $1,000 to $3,000 a year. Thank's god I got Personal Develpment books that educated me and told me YOU WORTH MORE.

    I was looking for a way to be more, make more and haver more freedom than $1,000 to $3,000 a month rent a little house and be struggling 20 to 30 years...take some "in a budget" vacations. Look at things that I like and can't buy. Be hungry in a mall to "keep in budget" hahaha. Let's stop talk about this....

    So, when I saw some ads. "How I make $20,000 a month on autopilot from the internet" I got very, very, very interested. That's my way to make more and live better.

    That's why I became an Internet Marketer. Know I make 10 times more of what I "hope" to do with a college degree in this country and never finished college

    But...

    Without that college. I can buy things. And more important than buy that things I like is the fact that you are stress free and can have an extremely better and happier life without worrying about "money"... let's worry about other things but not numbers.

    After working in a corporate setting for years, as an accounting manager, I grew tired of making other people rich! I decided to take break and stay home to raise my daughter. My (now ex) was a horrible provider, I was always the breadwinner, so it wasn't long before I started looking for a way to make money and still stay home with my child. I stumbled on eBay and my life has never been the same : ) working for yourself means you work around the clock sometimes, but it's worth it!

    Originally it was to generate enough income for myself and the people I love. I was sold on the dream of doing little work and making insane amounts of money. I was so sold on it that I took IMMEDIATE ACTION... and lost a lot of money following the first instructions I found...

    Regardless, after some years, my desire is refined. I'm going to give back more value than I take. I'm going to change people's lives, and God willing, the world. I have the strength to do so, and I'm leveraging it right now.

    Never stop improving, never stop driving. If you're not doing what you love, it's not worth doing. If you're finding that you're "grinding", you're not doing what you should be doing. Anyone can argue it until they're blue in the face, but let me tell you that if you're not excited about what you're going to be doing to build your business today, then you're doing the wrong things to build your business.

    So ultimately my dream is to change other's lives for the better, and as a result change my own life for the better as well.

    My decision was made to transition from the 9-5 world into a world where I started looking at the possibilities that present themselves to someone open enough and willing enough to say; "I think I can do more. I think I can create life on my terms. I want to see if I can."

    A lot do it out of desperation or working in poor situations. I made my decision based on the fact that my life on the surface was (and is) good. But ultimately it wasn't where I wanted to be in 'x' time.

    You get one shot at life. Why not try to live life on your terms - that way you can live your life knowing that whatever the outcome, you dared to challenge not only yourself, but the status quo and all the paradigms and expectations that come with that.

    I think the reason why anyone would go into IM is basically Financial Freedom. To be able to do anything you want without the worry of the money issue. But why you want financial freedom is where I think most people differ. My reason is because I wanted to support my family.

    Its actually kinda funny because I'm 22 and now I earn more than what my father makes in a year. Keep telling him to retire since he's 55 now but he's stubborn

      Am not yet there but its so encouraging to hear you making a lot more than your father,may be a more than what he gets when he retires.

    I wanted freedom, in terms of location and hours.

    If you work in an office you are tied pretty closely to the location of your office, and you are likely to have to work 9-5 or something similar.

    With IM, I am not tied to any place. I could be in the centre of London, or I could be on a beach in Spain (though I'd probably be less productive on the beach!). All I need is somewhere with an internet connection. Plus I'm a night owl, so if I want a lie in, thats fine.

  • I was always interested in marketing and sales. When I realized that online marketing is much better than offline marketing I jumped into online marketing. Some people are just born with marketing skills
