    good luck and you are going the right path in being specific with your goal and not just saying that you wanna get rich from IM but have no clue what ya doing, you should have different methods for IM in case 1 doesn't work you can still earn from other ways and rule#1 don't give up and work hard there is no magic bullet for IM.

    thank you for your response my background was in retail an banking so this was all pretty new and until i found this forum I was like a rabbit in the headlights and everything looked like a great idea. I already have several cpa accounts so I am going to have a lot of tracking of conversion rates and so on but i am aiming to do 2 hrs a day minimum to get me started and a lot of the work will be outsourced for the seo parts anyway.

    thank you for your kind words and input

    Good job... I'd also think about putting a time-frame next to some (if not all) of those goals...

    I once heard it said that "a goal without a deadline is just a wish".

    While the $10 a day type goals may be hard to time-frame, some of the other more "manual labor" type goals should be easier!

    Best of Luck!

    yeah that is a good idea actually :) iv heard that saying too an to be honest it aint far wrong bedtime now done some design work and got some keywords on the way i will update the timeframes tomorrow forsure and like i said once i hit that goal it will be switched for the next level say $30 a day etc and update that timeframe too.

    thanks for the luck im sure il need some along the way but in 6-9months all the hard work will be worth it :)

    Hey man,

    While it sucks to be in debt, it seems like you have the right mindset to turn yourself around completely, and then start your way off to a better life. Debt, to me, caused stress and I was scared of what I was going to do in case I got injured or sick or if a major appliance broke or something. I too have spent a bunch of money on worthless shit, and one day I realized that the only way I would make any money in this business is to figure this shit out myself, and then rock it out. I did so, and I am 100% out of debt right now (with the exception of my house) -- No Credit Cards, No Personal Loans, Etc...

    One tip, if you have Credit Cards, I would suggest locking them in a safe or giving them to your brother in law or someone else you can trust that is readily close by and ONLY use them in case of a TRUE emergency. Another tip for you to do if you need to find a way of stashing your credit card somewhere if you are afraid of using it, is to get a Ziploc bag, put your credit card in it, fill it with water and freeze it in your freezer. You keep it there, and if you need it in an emergency, then get busy thawing :).

    I personally wish you the best of luck buddy, and I have subscribed to this thread to follow you on your journey!

    Take it easy! :)

    Well done mate....Keep going.......Someone rightly said..."If you are going through hell, keep going"

    For a determined mind, there is no losing only delayed victory. Hopefully, you will achieve these goals sooner than your expectations and you start working towards bigger goals as well :)

    If you haven't done so already read about personal finance. So you can plug some holes in your spending habits. And if you find some holes invest some of it into IM and the rest towards debt payments.

    Why not declare yourself bankrupt. Start a fresh page in your life. Then the money you earn will be for you rather than paying interest on loans.

    Dont worry about getting credit in the future. Its better to just not have something if you cant afford it.

    But if he does that he will have to get a LLC and a EIN for it,Alot of places that aren't really credit related will make you put a security deposit if you have bad credit score.

    thanks again to everyone im actually quite up on personal finance as I worked for a bank and the only problem is I acted far too late to solve my problems the easy way so now its all going to be about hard work :):):):)

    thankfully my future is in my hands i have the resolve and i have every single bit of advice needed on this forum to make money and that is what i shall do.

    I will take a cut out to help pay off debt little by little brick by brick until i reach my goal and honestly havent been happier recently despite my debt.

    @dennis123 good luck to you as well i agree with that statement too cant repay if i aint got anything to give i keep all of them updated with my circumstances and once i reach 1k a month in im they will get a little bit more each.

    my goal is 5k a month by dec31 2012 and i will pay off the smaller debts first and then start hitting the bigger ones by june 30 2013 if the worlds still here il be debt free living in the sun and being paid by cpa companies to do very little :):)

    gonna keep building sites and scaling up though but once you have the money and freedom its a lot easier ;)

    thanks bhw

    What?
    now my 20K debt seems small :) good thing about living in a joke country is that $1500/month would make me a living better than teachers, doctors.. i'd pay off debt in a year, that only would make me feel rich :D i'm still waiting for that a-ha moment though, struggling to make any consistent method that brings even a dollar a day which i'd be happy to scale up..
    5K/month? this time next year :haha:
