    A private blog network is a pretty safe investment.

    A private blog network would definitely be the place to spend money. If you are trying to be "white hat", you better make those other sites useful.

    Other places to spend time / money for white hat:

    - keyword research
    - legitimate manual blog commenting on relevant sites
    - legitimate manual forum posts on relevant sites
    - create epic content that will be sharable

    If you decide to do whitehat SEO on your own, the first thing to invest your time in is learning the tricks of the trade. Although SEO is not a rocket science, there a lot of things you need to consider and it is getting more complicated these days.

    As for the practical side, we suggest you to invest your time into creating high-quality content, manual legitimate commenting on your niche-leading blogs or forums, and promoting your site/brand on social media sites.

    Don't spend any money until you've figured out hat you mean by white hat. You need to understand keyword research first, then on page seo, then off page seo. Plenty of materials you can read for free on all of those - avoid paid courses (IMHO)And start doing *something* sooner rather than later (ie build a site) - you'll internalise learning and mistakes much quicker that way

    Content Marketing is best investment. Like (Infographics, Whitepaper, Case Study and much more). You can get more leads and viral "Brand" also.

    Seo pros don't hangout on Odesk.

    OP - best investment is learning. Read, learn, try it for yourself, fail, find what was wrong, try again... and again. That's the truth, no magic here.
