An Update to my progress making 10k/month (3 weeks into it, and long read, but worth it!)

    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.

    wow congratulations. But making money online is not as easy, I know alot of people on here work day and night and yet they never still got to their potential yet, like me.

    Just be grateful that whatever your doing is working, and thanks for the tips.

    I'm willing to participate in this....only thing is that I can't send PM until I have 15 post, and I don't want to spam :p In the meantime you can check out one of the threads I made about the site I'm working on at the moment.

    I might be interested. It sounds like you are serious about this and have a goal in mind, I like that. However, I do realize that I'm not omnipotent and that some jv's are just not for me. So what are you looking for exactly? Do you have a businessplan in place and are you in need of investments? Do you have a plan/money and are you looking for someone that helps with the grunt work? Are you looking for a partner that has a business idea? Or are you looking for someone to brainstorm with to find that $10,000 idea?

    As I said I might be interested. I don't have a million dollar method (yet) or a pile of cash. What I do have is a functioning brain and blood sweat and tears to pour into a good project. Depending on what you are looking for, maybe we could get together and make it work. If you are interested give me a pm.

    To everyone that has pm'ed or thinking about it, we can skype later on? My id is: pkthundertx.

    @OP above: Hmm... I have somewhat a strategy, but I'm really game for anything that will take off. I do want someone that can contact and approach leads, and can understand the basics. But yeah, I'm open to brain storming, or just working towards that amount.

    Sounds good. I'm trying few methods myself now, one already brought home the bacon, but not even close to 10k. If you are looking for someone who can handle the hard work. PM/Skype me.
