    So heres a fun little story how I'm making it somewhere in life.. LOL
    I had this idea back when i was 17 and back then everyone thought I was stupid and not going to make it but that didn't stop me..
    Back in high school, I did anything to make a quick buck. From selling custom made snapbacks to Iphones. etc. etc. Anything i can get my hands on from my sources i can sell
    So I get help from my brother and our business partners and my uncle. Its basically a 5 man team but we have multiple investors and partners.
    Mostly just us 5 doing most of the work.
    I go to college right for a Degree in Marketing and Management, so I took what I learn from my studies into the real world, which so far has been working out well.
    So we all got together and thought, hey since we are always hungry, lets open up a restaurant! So 2 years later (20) since graduated from high school restaurant is packed everyday
    even though, I'm not there at the restaurent, I'm the one whos doing most of the promotions,advertising,social media pages.
    For a 20 year old, who barely has money or anything to his name I now as of today, own two cars started my own computer business, marketing manager for 2 companies in NY ( they are small but money is money) and working at restaurant from time to time. I went from making 8$ per hour at burger king to now making $1000 per month, might not sound a lot to some people but from someone who had nothing, this means a lot to me. I can pay off my tuition and student loans as soon as i graduate.

    Anyone can make it, if you have the drive,motivation and love to work long nights. Go for it, don't let anyone tell you can't do it.

    just getting started, i feel once i get my degree and actually get out into the real world like living in my own place and doing more on my own with my business but while working with my bro and our partner I'll be set. I'm just nervous something is gonna go wrong but i cant think that way i need to stay positive =)

    A great life style! Thanks for presenting these money making story. You have worked in a restaurant. That's pretty good but if I were in your shoe then I tried to be honor of that restaurant :)
    I also have a painful story in my life. I'm from a middle class family. I read in a high school that was located 300km far from my house. Within 5 days class I gone there only 2 days per week. Once I though I'm consuming my fathers money that's why I kicked that life and started to read more books in my own home. I learned about internet marketing. After 7 months first I stared internet marketing. Still running these job and making above $3500 per month. Wanted to be a small Bill Gates that's why working more. I'm here for learning more about internet marketing. Here, I have found more internet marketing specialist. Reading there money making story. Yet I didn't post about my own journey. Maybe in 2017 I'll create a thread about my lifestyle as a internet marketing specialist and there I'll describe about money making plan. Just thinking what I should do more for making money. Now I have a farm and have three popular forum. There I have total 50000 regular traffics.
    Mate, Please try to continue your study. Believe, I good day is waiting for you.
