# Thread: How long until \$1000 per month

1. ## How long until \$1000 per month

How long did it take you to make \$1000 per month

2. \$1k a month? =)

3. To make a decent living, you need a lot more than \$1,000 a month. More like \$6,000 a month

4. That's rather bias of you though, Matt. Sure, in New Jersey you might, but not everywhere.

For all we know he's 14 and living at home. \$1k/month would be prime in those conditions.

5. Hmm, dont know how to respond to this, my home mortgage is more than that a month!

On \$6K a month around here, you live in poverty.

7. Exactly. \$6k a month here puts you above 90% or more of everyone else.

8. A year and a half, for that amount. Three and a half years for making enought to live off of (Almost \$100,000 in 2,000.). Then the Internet Gold Rush CRASHED in 2001!!!!

9. how much is \$1000 ?
what u can do with that amount?
in india \$ 1000 = 43000 Rs.

10. You could live off \$1000 a month if the only bills you had were modest apartment rent (\$600), food \$200, utilities(\$200). Humble thyself.

11. how much costs beer.???

12. \$1,000 a month isn't really that much i would say

13. You know, actually if it's enough or not is not necessarily relevant to the question I mean, it's still interesting to see how long it took everyone to get to the same amount, whether they can live off it or not.

Took me a whopping three years to get there! In my defense let me say I also went through three pregnancies (including a total of over three months on bed rest) and two births and raising two sweet baby boys. And for a year and a half of that time I also had another part-time job. I think I worked on web development an average of 3-4 hours a day during that time.

Anyways, at last for the past three months I'm on \$2k a month! Of course when you take down the nanny's salary we're back to square one

Over here, beer is pretty expensive. A six-pack of decent local lager costs around \$15.00. Last nigth I brought two six-packs of Heineken at \$15.00 each (and they were on special!).

Exactly, but I was going over what types of things I want to do in my future the other day with my dad and we figured out the bare minimums for living somewhere around the Tri-State area would be about \$6,000. We ended up with \$72,000/year. That includes income tax being taken out.

16. You all assume that internet marketing is his full-time job.

There is nothing wrong with bringing in an extra thousand a month on TOP of your regular income.

I'm sure many of us have contractor/consulting positions making \$500 or so a day who still wouldn't complain about an extra 12k a year.

17. Well I am talking about \$1,000 a month as your total income and that's just not possible. After Income Tax, rent/mortgage, car, insurance, food, it adds up fast.

Ever hurd of Ethiopia? Didn't think so. There's places where you would be rich if you made \$1,000 a month.

19. Yes, but assuming he lives in the US, since he said \$, \$1,000 a month isn't enough to live on.

Yes, I have heard of Ethiopia.

20. Well in South Africa \$1000 would be a very nice income. Actually quite close to what the majority of mid level jobs pay.

21. what the hell is everyone talking about in this thread..

here are a few things that he DID NOT ASK
-How much should I make a month to support myself
-Can I live off of 1K a month
-Please give me information on living off of 6K a month

Here is what he did ask:
-How long did it take you to make \$1000 per month

To answer the question, it took me about 3-4 months to hit my first 1K/month

22. Well, we got off topic. Oh well. We can get back on topic. Who cares really?

23. I have a college degree (and student loans) so I know 1k is nothing to live on.....but extra cash is always nice.....

24. Yeah...way off topic. It's really hard to answer your question, though. How long to make \$1,000 doing what? Of course you probably mean internet stuff, but just advertising and affiliates? How about contracting to to design or web work? Just self-employed income? Also, a lot of us started out as hobbyists, then turned it into a business. At what point, should we count from? I think your question needs clarification.

As long as it is \$1,000 a month in EXTRA cash and not solely income, then it is great. Any extra cash is always good.
