Who keeps you going? I would have to say that my family does. I know that I need to do my best to provide for them and so I am willing to work extra hard to succeed.

    My children & wife.

    Needless to say; their support towards my online studies is near nonexistent.

      Why do they not support you for your online studies? Is there a reason that makes them like this?

        In short, they expected me to start making money right away.

        They are supportive, but prefer to be supported.

        They have no clue what I've learned as a result of 12-14 months of personal, non-formal studying online. Especially, concerning the technical aspects of internet marketing. They assume, I'll never make money, it's all a scam, blah! blah! blah!

        Little do they know, what I plan to do with this knowledge once I feel it's time to cash in will be rewarding to them and mself. I believe; it will change their perception of the web, and my investments of time and money (*mostly time) will yield phenomenal earnings and hopefully residual income.

        BTW, I am not buying push-button crap, auto-blogging, article spin'age garbage or taking any shortcuts...I'm leaning towards self-publications, writing books, afffiliate marketing (quality products), and building several quality niche sites.

        2 years ago...I didn't know what FTP meant, so I was completely illiterate, and have gained massive amounts of knowledge. Most of which was obtained right here on the WF.

        ...And I love a challenge. I've found no greater challenge than that of mastering the web.

          Yes that is quite a challenge. The web is one huge challenge for so many of us.

    Myself. I'm mostly self motivated. I don't need to do this, but I really want to.

    Also, everyone here helps keep me going quite a bit too! It's a good place to come to stay motivated.

    My family and my personal trainer. He has pushed me to limits that I would have never thought possible and this has helped me with Internet Marketing. Belief in yourself makes all things possible.

    I could say my wife and the taxman. But the truth is that it's the interesting business that keeps me going. If I wasn't interested in it, no matter how much my wife and taxman would complain, I wouldn't be going.

    No one keeps me going but me. When I got started online back in 2002, it was all about what I wanted for my future. I don't have a wife or kids so that does not keep me going.

    The thought of spending some time working early in the morning on a beach some where sunny! And on a serious note, for me it's the freedom that success brings.

    I chose entrepreneurship over further education despite being laughed at by my friends and family..

    I recently hit the "RESTART" button on my life, read my personal blog to find out how I did it :)
