I have a few questions for the people who make their living from IM stuff. It's not a secret that the hardest period is one's start. Before you made your first money, what had made you persist? What had driven you through that "dry" period of a few months when you didn't make a dime? What had been fondling your pleasure center? Some passion? Curiosity? Something else?
