    Hey Guys,

    I noticed recently that I have passed my 2 year mark on this amazing forum, so thought I would write a little update and once again thank all my friends here on BHW that have made the awesome life I live today possible! My 1 year thread is here for anyone interested. I don't like to write big threads like this as we see enough mumbo jumbo in the lounge now days :p but this forum has brought me so much so I think it's nice to give some encouragement to newbies with this if nothing else...

    You can see how things went for me in the first year on my old thread. Since then I'm happy to say things have just got bigger and better, most of you will know of Speed Rank and the can of worms we opened when myself and GoldenGlovez introduced SAPE to the mass public creating what has been some of the most exciting months in SEO, we russled quite a few feathers when we went live hah even a tweet from the cutts man himself due to the publicity we brought the network! This was the biggest project of mine to date and I'm thankful for the amazing response we got here and for the support from my partner GG. The past year since my last update has been one of the most exciting and best of my life topping the one before and hopefully things are set to get even better with current projects we are working on. I've also been upgraded to Jr Exec which was an amazing honour!

    Going forward over the next year I'm excited to see were things are going, I love the changes taking place on the forum and can't wait to see what the next year has in store. My earnings since starting IM have just gone up well surpassing 5 figures per month at this stage and already surpassed 6 figures for this calender year. I feel the next year will be an important one in getting to the next level, exciting times! I've travelled a lot more over this year just got back from 2 weeks in the canary islands amazing place and have lots more summer trips planned, Oh and I also got to meet the se3 master ghenghis_khan in Amsterdam earlier this year (he can't drink for shit!) haha all this thank's to what I have learned on this forum! it's mind blowing...

    In closing I'd like to say once again to all newbies out there feeling a little pressure I advise you to stick with it, keep reading and find something you like then stick with it until you master it. Amazing things will happen in your life if you can get your shit together, concentrate and make IM work, IM is more a lifestyle than a job to me and this I think is why I do well, treat it this way and you will win. Most importantly reach out to people, network and make friends here that's how great things come together! Join the BHW IRC channel you may face some scrutiny at first but it's all in good humour, great place to be I owe my biggest projects success to my business partner I met there! BHW is my home and if you hang out here long enough it will become yours too!

    Anyway It's Sunday I'm sitting around relaxing so decided to share this quick update on how things have been going and most importantly to say a big THANK YOU BHW and my friends here some of them as close to me as irl friends for making all this possible.. Cheers guys! :D

    Great post, definitely some extra motivation to get back to work RIGHT AWAY not after refreshing BHW three more times, as usual :D
    Congratulations on your big success, I hope to see this again in a year with an even more enthusiastic sound to it ;)

    Dollars man ain't that what we all work with online :p ah no I have mulitple sites that make nice monies, I'm good at what I do and I have a lot of resources at my disposal so it would be silly to only sell my skills and not use them myself! I also have several high paying clients with customized plans, the vast chunk comes from my products here and on other IM market places though... nope no offline ventures yet maybe in the future though, but the thing is I find it hard to find offline businesses with the fast scalability and big $$ so quickly that you can accomplish online :)
