    Hello all! I just joined a few days ago...
    Just a little introduction. I am a 16 y/o sophomore in high school from Honolulu, HI. As you know the cost of living is very high here so I was looking up ways to make money. I was literally willing to do everything. I came across IM like a month ago and I have just been reading these forums trying to retain the best that I can. I know that I will not make as much money off the bat but I'm willing to put work in. I'm so much of a noob it is terrible. I didn't know how much you could possibly make off of this until I actually checked it out and if I can make some side money in addition to my regular job and keep working on this to eventually make a whooping income.

    Anyone willing to share some advice and tips and such? What to use? Tools? Sites? Methods? etc.
    I will have to start from scratch because I really have no money yet.

    Thanks for reading!

    I have a blogger and basically all I'm doing now is writing reviews on products and putting my affiliate link at the bottom. Still need to get adsense.

    Dudes you are both welcome starting out at 16 or so, means you have to learn, and that often means you will need a leg up...

    But before you get some support take some time out and read some of methods here on BHW you will not be let down... it will be worth your time...

    Good Luck... and a warm welcome to BHW...

    I've been in IM for almost 5 years now. Trust me it takes some time and a lot of effort to maintain a steady passive income from IM.

    Just read some methods here on BHW and test them out yourself. I started with proxies when I was 15 years olds and grew from there. I would suggest tuning up your PHP and HTML skills. Keep your chin up and don't give up!

    Best of luck to you!

    Since I'm not going to be 16 again anytime soon I guess I'll give you a method, the only thing stopping you is you.

    1) Get a camera (camera phone, every 16 year old has one)
    2) Start working out / doing mixed martial arts
    3) blog your progress on ytube, with a link back to your site where you sell products (COME UP WITH YOUR OWN GOOD NAME FOR THIS YOUTUBE CHANNEL / WEBSITE YES BUY A REAL DOMAIN DONT USE SOME BLOGGER SITE)
    4) profit

    make your videos interesting, learn sony vegas to edit them properly. use your current facebook and twitter to push the links out to your friends. done

    dont forget me when you have money ok :)

    I love this approach, but aren't there already a ton of progress videos on YouTube?
    And does the website have to be focused strictly on this series of videos?
