Hello BHW! As I stated in the title, I have been a member here since 2013, and was a lurker for years before that. I believe it's officially time to make an introduction post. I have watched, I've studied, and I've tested what I can with my limited budget. I have learned a plethora of knowledge since discovering this site back around 2009. I was in my mid teens and wasn't sure what I wanted to do, so I kept quiet and watched. The amount of knowledge to be learned here is unthinkable. There are things I have learned on this very forum that people didn't know about, even when it was their job to! The generosity and overall mindset of getting rich together has made this my go to forum over many others including TBN, HF, WF, and more. This one has them all beat. As I said, I have tried various methods here, doing what I can with the little capital I have available. I've seen mild success, I've made a few hundred, but I know I can make more. The thing is, the methods here aren't what you need to absorb, it's the mindset. It's a way of thinking, being original, taking what you've seen and learned and applying it yourself, in your own way. I have failed more times than I have even tried. I know it doesn't make sense, and it doesn't have to. The point is every method I try, I learn something new. Every half baked or sloppy seconds method has SOMETHING you can gain from. THIS is what keeps me coming back. There isn't 1 person in the world who has the cumulative knowledge that is contained here. This is why I'm making this post. I have decided that IM is what I want to do, full time. I don't like stable. I don't like being in one place. I don't like repetition. I get tired of doing the same things, knowing the same people, living in the same places. I wan't the freedom to live where I want, do what I want, and just the overall freedom of not having a 9-5. IM is one of the few things that can offer this to me. This is why I am officially dedicating myself to learning and earning as much as possible. I believe I may have stumbled upon my gold mine recently. With the right help from the right people, I believe I have something big coming. As a thank you to the forum, I will be saving up for a Jr.VIP membership. Not only will this help the community, but it will be an investment in myself, a pledge to make myself successful in IM. I am hoping that I can get to know some of the bigger users here, and network and learn from them, as their experience has no price. My first goal is $1000 a month for 3 months. I will invest as much as possible from what I make back into IM until I make that happen. I won't quit, I wont give up, I won't stop until I make it happen. I would like to ask for as much encouragement as possible from the regular members. I tend to procrastinate, I know it. If I'm screwing up, tell me. Don't spoonfeed me and don't sugar coat anything. My motivation has been a successful future. I'm too shortsighted for that. My motivation now is seeing other people succeed while I don't. I don't like losing, I don't like being behind. I like being the one sharing knowledge and success with others. I know this is turning more into a rant but take that as motivation. Take this as me officially putting everything I have into making this work. Finally, to any newbies who may read this, or anyone who feels like they want to give up, I have a pic for you. My friend sent this to me while discussing a campaign we may do together, and it really opened my eyes and motivated me.
