    Hello guys and girls,

    This is my 1st post/thread ever and hopefully there are more to come!

    So to start, my best friend in real life is a VIP member here and has told me about this "world" a long time ago. Although I was always "busy" with my academic studies and other stuff and haven't really taken it seriously...Little did i know...I was i could turn back time and have started alongside with him, but I know this is not possible, so i will take the next best thing which is TODAY. Hopefully i can manage to change my life for the better, as my friend did some years ago and give meaning to the phrase "Better late than never".

    Small background about me
    I am 29 years old and I live in Greece. I have a Masters degree in Services Managment and a small background in Sales (I loved the time i spent as a real estate agent as i am really communicative and feel comfortable around people). I currently work at a 8 - 4 office day job that covers my montly expenses (not much else). I do not love this job and this was my primar motivation that brought me here today.

    I can say i am above avg smart, nothing too special though, so this has actually been my main disadvantage. Let me explain..
    I have always been good at school, quick to learn new stuff and had a good level of judgment when needed, but because of that i have been pretty lazy A LOT in the past, applying minimum effort in several cases and losing interest pretty fast aswell in many cases. I haven't realized i had a "spoonfeed" mentality and how behind i was vs MAJOR competition since i actually met my best friend 8 years ago. He pushed me to become an actiontaker and a deep learner and i thank him for that. That being said, there is wayyyy more room for improvement obviously, but I can say for sure that his help and insights have been quite lifechanging for me in the way I see,approach and understand things.

    Why I am here
    The reason I am here is quite simple. I want to do sth for myself, be my own boss, be able to support my self, earn wayyy more than I earn today and enjoy the freedom that IM offers. In 2 words, LIVE FREE.

    How do i plan to achieve that
    I intend to achieve that by following 3 basic steps:
    1)Study in depth one method and don't give up!
    2)Try my best to maintain some balance in my life while i do this and dont give up!
    3)Give it time, don't rush to quit my day job and dont give up!

    I have already picked the method i am going to focus on, as i have been studying the forum for some months now, even though i just became a subscribed member. I already know i will face difficulties regarding coding/programming and stuff like that as i have 0 backround on this field, but hopefully with study, research and your help i will overcome them.

    Anyway, thats it for now...I think for a "Welcome" post it's too huge already so I should stop here :p

    Thank you all for your time.

    Hopefully be back soon with my "Journey thread".

    Cheers

    This is my boy hehe :)

    Give love to him because his a small noob with a BIG heart. And this is what matters most of the time.
    Soon i will push him to start his journey thread and i will be behind him so it will be a very good one as the journey will prove that with 0% knownledge on some things you can do great things online.

    Good luck bro :)

    bhw will take you many places with the right methods . sure u will have ups n downs along the way
    but if ive learned anything being here 9 years, the harder you try the more likely you are to get
    to where u wanna be. i remember back in 2008-2010 on this forum i was working 10-12hrs a day
    till i finally figured out where i fit in, now in 2017 being in that place the wife cut my hrs back from
    12 - 8 hrs a day max - never loose site of those around you as its easy to get lost in the pursuit
    of making something here. ps left u a pm.

    Welcome , we share same things the personal info you wrote.... BHW I a great place but very easy to deviate so being focus is very important.... Still looking for ways or what to start as my country (Nigeria) limits things I could have started....

    Currently I run a WordPress blog sixkobo. com. ng but not monetizingt yet.

    I have zero web/programming skills but I am learning fast as I am a self and fast learner.


    To our success man, its good to have a friendyfriend you can proudly call a friend anytime.
