I was already a hustlin'-ass greedy type of guy. No doubt about it. But since I started learning and reading on BHW, I have found myself thinking about everything with dollar signs in my eyes. It's awesome. I started out here a couple months ago, looking to learn some SEO tricks to get my adsense account rocking. I got distracted and learned about affiliate accounts, and went off on a wild tangent and never looked back. Since then I have adopted this strange way of thinking, it's incredible really, but i keep on finding new ways to make money around every turn. I have had so many different sources of income this month it's not even funny. Here's a basic rundown (going in order of most money to least): 1) Got rear ended on the freeway (normally I would have toughed it out and moved on...this time I monetized) collission claim netted me $1,400 MORE than what I bought my old car for. Personal injury claim pending...but my attorney is estimating a mid-5-figure settlement based on previous cases. 2) Went to work mon-fri, netted $3,400 after taxes 3) Posted on CL a couple of times a week, doing "I'm sorry" email responses with CPA offers, netted approximately $820 4) Sold the car to a salvage yard that was totaled in the accident (yeah they let me keep it) $500 cash 5) One customer that I built a basic template website that pays me every month to 'maintain it' = $60 6) Wrote a few ads for associated content and helium, messing around with voice recognition software on vista - $47 7) Google adsense (this is what I was here for in the first place) $23 Just goes to show you that your biggest reward may not come in the form of the obvious "heres how to make $1000 overnight" thread. I have gained the most from this forum by adapting to a new mindset of "make money off of anything I can, every turn life takes me in". I also am looking at multiple streams of income, working with multiple cpa companies, and just spreading it around more and more so that if any one source of income goes away, I'm still in good shape. Thanks to all you contributors and sharers here on BHW that made my new IM career a reality, and for giving me the boost I needed to get going and make some $$$.
