    Thought I would see how many Australian's are on this forum :)

    Would be nice to see how much success we have all had and what we have learnt on this forum + exchange thoughts.

    I'm an Australian! Good to see another Aussie is active here.
    Can't say I've had success yet, but I'm working on a few things and I've learnt so much from this forum. I'm addicted to it at the moment.

    I'm glad I found one so quick! Hahaha.

    Yes, I am working on a few things myself. I got a few amazon niche and adsense niche sites being built, can't wait to start seeing results.

    Definitely addicted myself and learning a lot each day!

    That's good man. I'm trying out a few different avenues myself. Some custom T-shirts, some dropshipping and I'm working on an eBook and a website to go along with it. I'm lucky enough to be on an extended holiday at the moment in Mexico, so I have plenty of free time on my hands. Hopefully we can both convert some of our efforts into profit!

    Well I hope that all works out for you :) sounds interesting for sure! Jealous you're on a holiday though :p

    I've tried selling digital game keys on eBay - went really well. Too well it turned out I got scammed pretty big by some people - thought something was suss... But no I know what I did wrong and what to do in the future :) definitely won't give up on this once all my PayPal disputes are settled. That's why I'm trying to focus my time onto these niche sites, so I can pay off the small debt I now have endured from my failed eBay venture!

    [email protected]!!! Money :(

    I think it all feeds off each other... but I didn't really get into IM until I'd left Australia, and I'm pretty damn sure that I would never have done it had I stayed in my comfort bubble.

    Yeah I'm definitely a bit out of my comfort bubble for sure, but I have faith and the skills to manage it :) definitely a quick learner too!

    Been looking for Aussies too. Living at Perth at the moment. Got 2 ecommerce sites and 2 review sites and many social media projects running. Happy to share thoughts with locals.

    You should remove that.
