just this evening I was reading the Reviewica forum, following spider's story. I mean, I'm not exactly excited about the sales. Where are the thousands of dollars that were supposed to made? It's all just so depressing because I hardly read about any success stories here on the forum.
I wonder, how did Mark make all of his millions..?
I'm just getting the feeling that all of this is nearly impossible, unless you already have thousands of dollars to expirement with, and even then, it seems like trying the lottery. If I could spend 40 hours in a week working on a project, what would be my forecast? Would it still take years to earn a full-time income?
So what are the chances that are involved? How much time and money do I need, if I wanted to earn a full-time income in a year? What ARE the odds?
Now I am really serious about my project. I've probably got a lot more time on my hands than most people here. We're even working with two persons here - yes it means splitting up income - but also costs, and hours available are doubled. I refuse spending the rest of my life working hard every day while someone else leaves with the big money.
So how much money do YOU guys make? What about the forum admins? Are you just managing the forum..? Or having serious success? And, is there a way of predicting my chances of success, by calculating the amount of time and budget available? At least it would give my plenty of confidence and strength to really start working.
Thanks, and regards,

You've got to make it work, there is no other option and no room for doubt.
Why not start by taking action and build a quality site and go from there? We're all there to help look at your sites and offer feedback.
A lot of us who are new to earning a full time living online (I've been making a full time living for the last 2 months) may offer a fresh perspective that others who have been going for ages may have lost.

Listen, dude, I feel your pain. However, any business venture is loaded with twists, turns and peril. It is also loaded with blood, sweat, tears and.....Success!!!
I have been running an embroidery business online for almost 5 years now and have had very little success. As a matter of fact, I'm closing it down this year because I'm just plain tired and I took a big loss on taxes..
I am a private school teacher with a heavy workload of 6 classes a day. I have been running my business at night sometimes until 3 or 4 in the morning. I have taken every type of marketing class imaginable on online marketing as well as offline marketing. But you know what? I'll never give up. I may not have been successful with the embroidery biz, but I have taught myself so many things as far as the Internet is concerned, I just know I can make some money online!
I watch Donald Trump on his Apprentice show quite frequently and his main theme is, "Don't ever be a quitter!!!" Sure, you can shift business gears and try new things, if the old ideas are not working, but don't give up.
Besides, what would you have everyone say? Yeah you're right, Rudolf, go ahead and quit. You are probably no good in business anyway. Let's go and relax in a recliner and forget about business.
Listen, Mark Ling has provided awesome support and help, here on Affilorama, and even if I don't make a dime online I'm sure the knowledge will come in handy. As a matter of fact, a biproduct of working with my Affilobuds and Buddettes has already started to emerge. Real Estate people want me to build their sites for them now, so now I am a site developer. Am I awesome at building beautiful Web sites? Hell No!!! But I can now build a fast, loadable fully functional site that will allow me to help them market their sites as well as get them online.
Ohhhh!!! There's the Bell!!!
God Bless & Flame-On!!!
Well said Elmo. Very motivating. I hope one day you are going to make a lot from your online business.
