    I am going to start from the beginning. Before BHW, I worked in several different factories and organizations to make ends meet. There was a time during this period where I ate nothing by Hershey's candy bars for a week because I had nothing else to eat in my home. In the summer of 2008, I came across CashCrate. I received a check from them, which was an major eye opener for me. As it is to most when they make their first amount of money online.

    Around 5-6 years ago, I started dabbing in HTML & moved along to CSS. Now, this was just a hobby at the time. I was developing "graphics" in MS Paint (I was unaware of PS and AI at the time). I was making little websites back when Angelfire was around, but they were more like personal profiles. I wasn't fully aware that I could produce a living from some of this skills.

    Fast forward a bit to September-December 2009. For the most part during that gap, I read on HTML templates and things like that. I found BHW through a friend of mine, whom I owe a lot of my success to. I started reading and implementing new methods almost daily. I was like a machine. I had never found something so exhilarating and profitable at the same time. So, I studied more and tried new methods. Some worked very well and some did not.

    It has been a long road, I've taken some BIG losses and I have secured some very profitable contracts. I've sold facebook accounts, fans, CPA, Adsense, flipped websites/domains, developed websites, designed graphics, data entry. You name it, BHW has HELPED ME DO IT.

    I just wanted to say thank you to ALL of the members here who have posted their methods, posted their research, and posted their resources to help everyone out. I commend you all.

    As for the moderators, many of you have helped me out in some way and on behalf of the forum & myself you all are given the highest amount of gratitude possible. So thank you 7878, BZ, WizGizMo, BigBuddy, tymillz, OldSalt, Jasmiiin, I KNOW SEO, GoldenGlovez, Jazzc, & Meathead1234

    One final thing,
    NEVER GIVE UP. Repeatedly try new methods, keep up on them, and get your checks! Take care, guys and good luck.

    If that was a sarcastic/troll response, there's no need for that. I was showing gratitude for life I've been able to live thanks to this forum and where I was previously. If it was a serious "thank you", then you're welcome.

    There is a time and place for trolling, this wasn't it.

    Those of us that appreciate BHW and can see it's value, like to hear other people's success stories and can understand it when they want to show their gratitude.

    OP, nice one thanks for sharing.

    No problem. I just wanted to hopefully motivate some people, thank the people that have helped me, and throw a positive vibe out into BHW.

    Thank you for the encouraging post OP. Maybe this would help a lot of newbies from quitting before they even scratch the surface of IM. Really awesome :)

    Thanks, that's what I am aiming for. So newbies have a good start and more seasoned members to guide them in the right direction. There is money for us all.

    Thanks, I appreciate that. I wish you the same success in yours as well.

    Edit: Thanks to Untouchable too. Great guy. I see your posts around the forums.

    That's good to read. It is an honor to be here. Money is basically given away here. When you join, it's like getting an ATM card.

    My username used to be something else, but I requested it to be changed. It suits me now, thanks though!

    I appreciate that. May you see many Adsense & CPA checks jump into your paypal account :beerchug:

    Rated the thread "excellent". Probably some sore loser who rated it poor.
    Have a nice day,
