    hi everyone,

    this is my progress from nothing. i started 1 month ago and did a lot of experimenting:
    • automating mturk with python (waste of time)
    • logo designs on 99designs (waste of time)
    • cold emailing local businesses with design services
    • posted on reddit forhire/freelance/etc
    • made 3 long youtube videos (too time intensive)
    • building up instagram accounts with low level botting
    everything i currently have:
    • 1 affiliate site built on WP with 1 unique article
    • i have a few items from aliexpress which i've been selling on ebay for low profit to boost my reviews (started at 0)
    • instagram: 4 accts (800 followers total)
    • linkedin: 500+ connections
    • 29 domains mostly in the cannabis niche for sale on sedo/afternic/brandbucket
    • cheap shared hosting package
    i made a little money from doing some amazon reviews and selling the items on ebay

    revenue = $50 usd
    costs = $200 usd

    total = -150$

    and the journey goal is 1 million dollars?

    i admire you trying a bunch of things, but you're probably spreading yourself too thin now. why not pick the most successful strategy and focus some resources on it?

    Try to Focus on 1-3 things at a time max, until you can have different passive incomes :)

    Better to do one very well and move onto the next project, then do everything halfway.

    it seems so!

    as long as you're learning (and maybe even earning), it's all good. good luck!

    Don't stop. Give it some time. One month is nothing.

    Have you deducted what you're paying for the cannabis domains from the total?

    steady on there mr optimism

    thanks

    no the total includes it, most of the costs are the domains. 1&1 were doing 0.99 .com's last month for new customers but you could just sign up with a new email each time and get the deal

    I have a bit of a focus problem as well. Just make sure you keep learning as much as you can and don't get demoralized.

    What a waste of time indeed, Why not become a freelancer for something you are skilled or good at?
