    hello there :)

    My name is Norbert. I live in North Wales, United Kingdom. I have been thinking about IM for a while now but due to my proffesion ( i'm a chef) i don't have much time apart from being in the kitchen. I came to uk in 2004 with one thing in my mind. Make the most out of my life. Be happy and be financially independent.


    Fast forward to 2013. I have a lovely fioence which i am with for 10 years now!! We have a son. Hes 15 months old. He's the main reason for changing my way of thinking. i just dont have much time to see him... We do have a lovely 3 bedroom house on the mortgage. Big garden. We have a car and both have a good (ish) (meaning not minimum wage) jobs.

    Why do i write this? It's a self form of introduction of me (us) as a hard working persons to achieve our goals. Now when our life seems to be stable we want to push it to the next level. She is doing her own thing that gives her income. Me .. well i have started my IM journey few weeks ago.

    I have few sources of income:

    1. Ebay
    2. Amazon
    3. Adsense
    4. Offline/Online mix

    My goal WAS 200k £ in 5 years when i started. Now when i noticed how fast i could generate income my thinking has changed again. I do want 200k but as fast i can get it. Having 200k will let me invest it into generating even more income. I do NOT have any limits anymore. I will gather and enjoy life. When i have around 1 million £ i will move again somewhere where costs of living are cheaper and by then i will have enough passive income to just live.


    For the next 3 days ( till monday) i will count exatly how much money i have gathered for last 3 week. Will be posting daily my income and we will see where it will gets me :)


    Thanks for stopping by :)


    And remember: Impossible is nothing :)

    Good luck!

    Your approach seems interesting. What do you plan on doing on Ebay and Amazon? Reselling stuff, drop shipping, or..?

    One of things i do is i buy on ebay and then sell on ebay with profit. I set my margins of how much i want to buy item(s) for and then re sell them for more. Amazon wise i do sell things of ebay for higher price. Mostly hard to find cd's. I pay 0.99£ on ebay ;) and then re sell for 4.99+ on amazon. Thats just an example but i do much more. Where ever i can see profit i just get on it.

    i think CTR means clicks to revenue (?) CPC would be cost per click

    I just came through a similar promising thread yesterday here. That was also telling something about 3 days challenge. Is it the same thing or what?

    Anyway, big dreams will inspire you to achieve big targets.

    If you dream little, then what you get. GHANTA?

    It's good to see that you've set a reachable goal. Let's see you get there. :] Don't get distracted or put off through failure!
