    Hello,

    Haven't been active in the forum for some time now, recently got motivation to get back into the internet world.
    Inspired by Cyrusmoney tread and others decided it's time to get back and put my life on the right track.

    About me.

    I had some success before in IM, however that was about a year ago so now I am starting again. However the last journey I started failed without really starting.

    Turned 22 few days ago and it's time to set my life on the right track so I can have the life I want by age 25.

    Recently I have joined the 5AM club and started to work on my projects.
    I don't want to just have money I want to grow my disciple that comes with commitments to business. Get the "toys" I want and not to think about money when I go out.

    Not afraid to say that I have been a slacker all the income I get I waste.

    Time for a change.

    To get my goal I will start practising proper money management not waste it on crap I do not need.

    My family is involved and so am I into the travel industry. So I will take advantage of this as it is a industry I know quite well since I have worked in it more or less for the last 9 years.

    Overall goal.

    My goal for the next 3 months is to earn 4000 Euros (I need to buy a 4x4 for my future business goals) and 300 Passive income. Learn new skills and grow not only my online skill set but also my overall personality and attitude.

    The plan.

    It will be a 3 step process to reach my goal.

    1st.

    Build a travel site that I will focus on tourism that has not been really taped into in my area. This site will be the base for my further offline/online business. It will take a lot of work and I won't see any income from it probably not for the next 3 months but that wont stop me to work on it.

    I will not use adwords on the site, but I will make arrangements with other businesses when the site is ready to earn commission from all the accommodation, tours, hires ext. from the site.

    To start off I already have collected about 120 contact details (thats just 1/3 form from all the people I need to get) with industry related professionals that I will collect information from and combine it in one site that I want to build as a authority site.
    As far as I know these professionals are interested for my site to grow as they will get back as well also they kinda have to give me the information I will request.

    2nd.

    As I collected the list of contact details I saw that most of the places I came across have shitty online presence and now then ever travel industry MUST have strong online presence in order to attract tourism.

    I will offer them to build sites on my own and offer outsourced graphic design services for competitive prices. Problem is that most of these sites are local government owned so I have to do everything by the book with them (invoices ext, no black "cash") and do some good sales pitches to get them signed up.

    Also I will continue to offer my wed development services (wordpress) to other people to reach my goal. My goal eventually is to hire local (thats because websites here have to be native language) developers to work for me. This would probably be after the next 90 days, so I have a budget to pay them monthly wages. However I will try to find some to work with me with profit share scheme.

    3rd.

    About a month ago I was offered to become a sales person for a software that is designed to improve booking management.
    The pay there is not big, however from every client I sign up I will earn 30 euros per month passively. So my goal is to sign up 10 new clients in the next 90 days.

    To do this I will start off by using using 7878 method and send out my sales pitches via snail mail already have bought letters/stamps and then travel to them to make the pitch in person.

    I have received their current marketing material, however I will have to translate it and build a new design for all of it since I find it not so appealing.

    Tomorrow I will start collecting contact information for business that would benefit from this.

    Conclusion.

    My main goal for this post is to get motivation and tips from fellow members that can help me gain my goal and hopefully at the end of the journey I can help others with the things I have learned on the way.

    Income goals.

    4000 Euros in 3 months
    300 Euros passive income in 3 months
    Have about 200 original posts in my authority site and 30 involved businesses in it.

    Starting tomorrow I will try to post updates a few times a week.


    Cheers.

    Day 1

    This morning sent out about 130 emails have had some responses within minutes. This looks quite promising will receive a lot of information to work with for my authority site. Seems that I will have to hire someone to help me process all this information and re-write it.

    130 people and will receive a few page pdf's from each will be hard work to arrange all the information.

    Feeling exited about this.

    Will start preparing marketing material for the software sales letters. Plan to send them out day after tomorrow if everything goes well.

    Need to work on a new clients wordpress site too. This should take more then 2-3 days of casual work to complete and then I have another signed up already. When these two are finished will start to focus on getting more clients and look for someone who is willing to work hand in hand on web development projects with profit share to complete WP tasks faster so I can focus on other parts of my journey.


    Small update 10:35AM : got about 10 responses within 30 minutes a lot of information to process, I can now see that this project might take most my time in the next 90 days, but I know it will be very rewarding afterwards.
