I'm a work-at-home-mom and have been working in IM for about 10 years now. The majority of that time I have been a member here at WA - and have never regretted it. (An INCREDIBLE resource if you really want to make it in internet marketing.)
If you're new to this industry, I highly recommend WA and not dabbling in it - really do it the way Kyle and Carson lay it out. Study and learn it well, and if you follow the given path, you'll make it. (I am.) :D
PS: Make sure you catch the Live Training Videos by Jay (@magistudios) - the videos are invaluable!
