    Hello everyone and I hope you're all doing well today! :)

    I recently ran across a thread this evening where the user was looking for a way to bring in additional income to add to his $80 per month salary. We can obviously conclude that this user is based outside of the US as he's currently only able to save $20 per month and is wanting to allocate that $20 per month to IM. So, I decided to offer to build him a couple of sites for free to help him get going in the right direction & with this offer it reminded me of a couple of the real reasons I joined BHW in the first place and wanted to share this with you all here.

    Sometimes, people find themselves in the best and worst of situations in life and they didn't get there necessarily because they put themselves there but because their environment and close associates unknowingly bring them down. Personally, I'm a firm believer that if you hang around drug users then you'll become one while if you associate yourself around successful like minded business men, well, then you'll start to gather that level of knowledge and intellect and start your walk on the road to success. :)

    My main point is to be helpful (I'm not just speaking financially) to those who are less fortunate online and offline and even your local community/neighborhood. Be the "Stepping Stone" to life/success and trust me my friend, the universe will one day reward you for your kind doing(s). One thing I'll certainly be focusing on in the coming year is to be a more active member in my community and to help the less fortunate.

    I myself have been very fortunate in life owning some very successful businesses and I think it's time to return the favor to those in need. It's such a great feeling to help others and is a much more rewarding experience in my opinion then having a $1,000 day.

    Thanks for reading my post and I'm sorry if I got a little too carried away but these were some important thoughts that I felt would be nice to share and hope this gave a little inspiration to at least one person to be a little more helpful to others.

    Have a Happy Holidays! :)

    Veyron

    Couldn't agree more my friend.
    All my life, I'm happiest when serving others and giving. The sense of being part of something bigger than yourself is so great. When we pass on, one of our actions could have sparked the fire for someone better than us to do extraordinary things.

    It's the things we don't live to see that are worth being alive for in the first place.

    I personally feel that you can help a lot more people if you are making $1,000 a day.

    But good on you for helping him man. I wish I had a guiding hand when I started. Cheers!

    It's kinda funny how threads like this one are passing by while stupid journeys or non-sense discussions about SEO are having thousands of views.

    Great & true post mate.

    Lookit me, lookit me, I'm doing someone a favor. Lookit me, aren't I wonderful? I exemplify everything a BHW member is supposed to be. Anyone that wants to be considered "good" should look over here, because this is what it looks like and everyone pay attention to me doing it.

    I guess it goes to show what people are more concerned about.

    I am really glad I found someone like you Veyron. To be honest the whole point of me starting IM was to have more opportunities to help people out starting from my parents.

    I have always been thankful to god(regardless of your beliefs) no matter what kind of situation I am in. For me I will be %100 satisfied as long as I've got food in the fridge and a home to feel safe in. My intentions when trying to make moeny is to be able to help out people who struggle to live.

    Once you have that mentality you will be much more successful

    Tell him to save his money and buy one PR2-3+ website and start selling links off of it. Thats what I would do in this situation.
