    I didn't really know what to title this but...what I came up with seemed like it fit the bill mostly. Anyways..I have been moseying around looking at the forums about every other day. But a few things have stuck out to me as of today:

    This one came from Ste's troll thread of a Skype mastermind of how to grow a skype group masterminding.....it's Ste you get the picture lol. Anyways, what he said was this:

    "If I have learnt anything lately, it's that tutorials just create more questions than answers for noobs. And unfortunately there are a lot of them around right now."

    and....come to think of it that seems about right. As many courses I've bought and what not.. it's just.. so many questions I had..more so before I had before I got them. But that wasn't all, there was a 2nd thread I found about some dude giving his wife's sister money to go start a business and what not. The topic itself was nothing out the ordinary.. but as i read some of the comments... they were more or less saying the same thing:

    ">buying coursesDon't waste your money. You said it yourself, "Not only did she start it but she build it too". Build something over time. Any good online business has a offline side. I've learned x10 more than any online guide/course by setting up my first saas." -pasdoy

    "The difference is she took action and worked hard. Its not just about the $600 startup money. So you may not be able to replicate her success even with more money unless you are prepared to do thesame either offline or online. Buying courses already indicates you are seeking some easy method...that does not exist!" -drogon

    Which again seemed to all come together. Is this the same reason why the courses in the download section are free and there are very few Guides/Tuts/Courses in the BST? I'm simply asking, and looking for some people's opinions on this.

    BHW is built on knowledge and sharing.

    Other forums like WaFo are build on selling courses and WSO's and other horse shit.

    Courses serve a purpose to make the seller money, that is their concern.

    They don't give a fuck if the course is good or not, they care about making money.

    Save your cash, spend it on domains and hosting with the idea of learning SEO from experience. That is what you want to do...

    Not give it to some retard guru money who doesn't give a fuck about you.

    +1 Ste Fishkin.

    BlackHatWorld has tonnes of golden nuggets of information to help you start your online IM business, personally I've read through loads of IM journeys, quite a few guides and ideas other people are using to generate an income. Then popped my own ideas together, relatively similar, to get started and setup.

    The biggest issue most people have is not getting started, and not getting stuck in. Rather than buy information, hunt through, read journeys, read guides, set a date and get started. Stop buying guides!

    BHW it is full on info. I came here years ago looking to buy some emails-list.
    I didn`t know about SEO then, learned from here.
    But youtube still it is gold-mine on loopholes and methods, there are this kidos , when they discover a bug on yt,fb,ig,tw, and dont know what to do with it, just post it on youtube.
    Just search on youtube on different languages and you will be amazed, actually i found pretty good method there last week.

    OP, when you become a doctor you go through 4 years of undergrad school, 4 years of medical school and anywhere between 3-7 years of residency training. All this before you become eligible for medical licensing.

    And even after all this "information" a lot of doctors regularly attend seminars, training, all sorts of events till the day they retire or die.

    You're talking about guides on an IM forum. Most are really short. I'm just saying, when I was in college I was forced to read the equivalent of what was prob 10,000 WSOs. I couldn't give an accurate #. I just know the rate I use to consume & produce information that time of my life was fucking absurd but the most interesting part? I grew to LOVE it.

    Learning becomes addictive. The more you learn the more you wanna learn. It's even more addictive when you're having study sessions with girls then going back to their dorm to play video games, smoke weed and fuck the shit out of them.

    If you ask me, there's only 3 problems with reading any type of information:

    1) Lack of vagina. Vagina makes learning F-U-N.
    2) You're not finding the right information to read.
    3) You're consuming more than you're producing.

    Possible solutions:

    1) Starbucks bro. Those mfkrs will let you hold office meetings and run business in their business. It's vagina abundant. Go there.
    2) Find better information. I think I've read 80% of the shit on BHW so now I read Wired (Business), SEL, Smart Passive Income, DuctTapeMarketing, etc.
    3) Do more work.

    Let me summarize. Always make sure you're around vagina a minimum of 4 hours / day. I usually do 2 hrs at the gym then 2 hrs at Starbucks/Local Library/Bar/Beach during the summer. I have the benefit of being in walking distance of a brand new bar that opens at noon and usually not many people are there till 4-6pm. I don't even drink. I just grab an ice tea throw down my lap top and it's pretty cool that from 12-4 the bar is like an open library. Then during the summer I'm surrounded by beaches so that's usually where I am. I also make it a habit to make 9am-4pm work time. So I don't read any blogs or bs till after 4. Just a rule of thumb.

    - Ste that's what everything has been leading to. Alot of the methods circle around: "Make a Website, do some SEO" type deal. after seeing it a few 100ish times.. it makes sense to learn that way lol.

    - BreaknBrix All I gathered is to do roughly the same thing.. but do it around Vagina lol. 9am - 4pm are your work hours and don't read Blogs until after the fact.. because it's not around anymore.

    By the way I appreciate everyone's input.
