    I cashed in pretty big a few months back during the whole Facebook/CPA thing.

    I made a little over $15,000 in a month. Problem is, now Facebook is much, much harder to make money off off.

    I've made a few mistakes in the past which I want to pay my parents back for.

    I realize a lot of the experts say "you don't need money to make money", but I also do believe that having a bit of money to help doesn't hurt.

    Any ideas BH'ers?!

    Build something solid that will return money for the long run. Something that comes to mind, an eBook of some kind you can sell and promote through clickbank etc. Otherwise you'll be jumping around every few months looking for a new "method" that works and a year later you'll find yourself back in the same situation, but probably with a lot less money.

    Talk to someone who has way more money than you and ask them for advice. You might be surprised by the answer.

    I'd invest in a business already making steady income. Check Flippa.

    Hire site builder, content man, and a good backlinker/linkbuilder.

    All of which can be found extremely reasonable for hire here as far as price/return -bulk ordering.

    Build about 500 microniche sites, adsense based with some clickbank and cpa option on most if not all.

    500 sites X $1 - $5(or more possibly) earning adsense daily

    Pretty good start of eventual daily return, not to mention what's being earned with clickbank and cpa offers on those sites.

    Then, later possible if not as you go, build lists in your best niche sites, outsource the mailing content for various offers, freebies and possibly your own outsourced made product for those lists.

    That's what I would do If I had $15,000 to start! :D


    Rinse and repeat.

    First off, take one third of that money and put it in a savings instrument... whether it be money market fund, CD at your bank, 401 K... something that you will not touch until you are 65.

    Secondly, take a look at yourself and see what you are good at and what you find interesting. Before taking any plunge into business, it makes all the sense in the world to make sure that is something that you will enjoy doing.

    Third, investigate various opportunities and use a pro and con sheet to see if they are viable.

    From there make your decision.

    If the idea is THAT good, you would have money and wouldn't need to ask people's money over the web. Words doesn't means sht!t, numbers speak louder than anything else. If you really believe on your idea, get out and find the money in any way you can and see you later at the millionnaire club.

    ---

    If you really made 15,000 in a month, I think that you're the kind of guy we should be listening to for advises.
