    Hey guys!

    I just wanted to hear from you what actually motivates you doing IM? Is really just money or is there any other motivation?

    Speaking for myself, there is a lot of creativity envolved in my IM business, and this is what motivates me too - seeing how idea become reality and many people benefit from it.

    Putting smiles on people's faces motivates me the most. :) It's not all about money.

    Another thing is a learning. Internet marketing is by far the best teacher. Each day something new...

    money isn't always a source of motivation for people. There are other things like family, fame, experience, learning, competition, etc

    Obviously money is great but I like to know I created something of value. Knowing that someone has a pain in their life and need a solution. Once they find whatever it is you're selling and it helps them relieve their pain. That is pretty cool!

    Taking something from my brain ,putting it in my hands and then the hands of others,thereafter being paid for doing so. So in short Creativity+Execution+Money. All three elements at once make me happy

    What motivates me is personal freedom. If I am successful then I have no need to rely on anyone else. There will be a point in my near future where not a single person in the world will be able to give me a directive. I am very near 100% self sufficiency. I will liquidate someday and live off the proceeds, that thought is pure motivation.

    I would say it is defiantly the feeling of freedom, and then the ability to create and always be moving forward in something. Ultimately money is just a way to buy freedom to do what you want. Providing a real service to people were they really thank you for helping them is also a really good feeling.

    Money buys freedom to do almost anything you want to do in our society so yes, its the money.

    Money was never my motivation. Technology & learning was. If you enjoy what you do, chances are your going to make a few bucks from it.

    Money for me. I am in my 40's, so endless optimism isn't my friend. In my 20's it was all about learning and having fun. Now it's all about money. Having said that I will still give a good try to something that maybe isn't performing well at the time in hopes it will some day.

    Self-reliance which can be translated into money. Money is freedom. Ability to have a choice and walk away form any situation I want.

    Freedom for myself and for my clients. When I help them meet their business goals it gives me the warm fuzzies in a big way.

    For me what motivates me is the ability to touch other people's lives and I am able to do this because of my profession as a nurse.
