So about 3 weeks ago, I posted a JV for anyone that wants to make 10k with me. I'm no way a im expert, but its been about 3 weeks, and just wanted to fill in and give so pointers on how things went. I met a lot of amazing people on here, like onam, etc. I also fell into some traps, not money wise, but let me explain below: I posted my thread and received a ton of pm's, almost overwhelming, but I managed to try to pm as many as I could. Added as many I could on skype, and tried to get to know everyone. I found 3 things though working with some people that literally WASTED MY TIME (and no, this does not apply to everyone I spoke with, so don't take it the wrong way): Vision: I don't know about you, but 10k seems pretty feasible to me. The main thing I kept seeing with others is that we share a different vision. Making 10k was like hitting the lotto twice to some of the people I chatted with, and some were content. If you are ok with just eating french fries, but no hamburger, then stay the fuck outta my way. Just saying lol.. Work Ethic: Most of the people I worked with had 0 work effort, or every excuse in the world. I do understand everyone's situation, I am constantly working, so you might hear back from me in a few days, or awhile, but please at least bring something to the table (and I'm not always talking about money, a dude that emails pretty good could work). I mean how do you expect to make 10k complaining about what you don't have or what you can't do? There's a fucking hot woman legally blind going for Miss Florida, stop whining on your lazy ass! Realistic and somewhat Ethical Plans: Now I know this is BHW, we all know what that means, but sometimes you have to think logically with things. I don't feel good going to sleep at night knowing I scammed someone taking their cc info, and making them sign a offer that was bogus with their social, or selling someone a site that really has fake traffic or no value. I mean that's just me, do what works for you. And at least have realistic plans. I talked to someone on here wanting to make 10k a month on fiverr. I mean you have think straight for a minute, that's about 3,334 gigs for me a month (about 112 gigs per day, unless we become a top-rated seller, and people always buy the more expensive gigs). I mean do the math, you would have to outsource the shit out of it, and get a ton of gigs everyday just to reach this goal. Then you could have a snake that will try to send the funds to his/her paypal, just a big hassle. Not saying this wouldn't work, but damn, you would have to put some effort with me on this one lol. FINALLY..... WORK DUTIES: This is probably the biggest problem I experienced trying to work with others. Someone not playing their part, or making you do all the work. There was a girl that hit me up with a nice "better said than done" game-plan. She had all her stuff together and goal was quite ethical. The catch?!?! I do 90% of the work, she does 10. I would have to handle to the calls, make the calls, design the sites, fix the sites, provide the maintenance, and handle the emails, while she just closes the deals, and I would have to do that too down the line. I know two words, outsource, but you gotta realize its just me and her at the moment. Another member from another site wanted me to build a complex site that can almost send a hooker at your doorstep lol, and told me I can keep the profits for a little bit. I'm like wtf, if I gotta go through so much trouble, why don't I keep the profits myself? We should be going at this equally. 2 different oxen can't yoke in a straight path. Here is what I did after a week and a half of things going backwards: - I kept the good skype contacts on my account - Went and advertised my butt off (wont tell me method, but it works) - And worked my butt off till it almost fell off lol - I had to organize my schedule, because I was doing things off and on, and had to stay focused. - Last week I started getting a few emails. But no closings, so I did it again. Now all this week, I've been getting calls and leads. I managed to pull $250 last week for a simple job (but the client had contacted me awhile back). I have 5 potential clients that contacted me first this week, and now I'm just waiting for the checks to come lol. My point and thoughts: Not here to talk bad about anyone, but just saying if you PM me, pm me with something that makes sense, and tell me about yourself. Don't just send me a message saying, let's work, I know nothing about you lol (fill me in on the scoop). I mean that could me anything, and we are here to make money, lets do it. I strongly believe 10k is possible, just have to have the right people beside you. So if anyone is interested, no games, no bs, and serious. Send me a PM. I'm not really desperate to find the first person, so show me something of value first. I'm a fair person, and believe in splitting the cake half and half. Thanks for reading.
