Hey guys, Vlado here. I?ve been lurking these forums for the past few months and today I have decided to take action. There is no use in sitting here scrolling through the pages all day when I could be learning and making money. I don?t have any special computer skills and my knowledge of Internet marketing is only what I?ve been able to read here and on other similar forums. I also haven?t bought any special programs or anything IM related yet either. I?m not going to claim to know everything or be an expert on anything because when it comes down to it I?m not very smart. Fortunately I?m clever and persistent which pays off in the long run. I plan on making a ton of mistakes and I welcome any suggestions and criticisms. My goal for this journey is to become financially independent. If I had to pick a specific amount of money to be earning, $1500 a month will allow me to live comfortably almost anywhere on the planet while being able to save some money. I?d like to be able to earn that kind of money passively and I plan on putting forth the effort to achieve that goal. I?ve taken tons of notes over the past few weeks and there are a few methods I will be starting off with. Fiverr seems the easiest way for me to start earning right away so I will be pursuing that route first. I don?t have a big budget, only around $500, so I will be using Fiverr profit, if I make any, to invest back into my goals. I am going to put up a gig today offering a service I can think of. There seems to be a market for article writers or proofreaders so I might pursue that. I?m also going to do some research on Fiverr gigs and try to determine if there are any other gigs I can offer like writing articles. I?ve never written articles for money but I have a lot of experience writing about a wide variety of topics. I created a Fiverr account a couple of months ago so if everything goes well hopefully I will be able to reach Level 1 status quickly. My secondary focus will be on either the Amazon Affiliates program or Google AdSense. This is the route where a passive income could be earned. I am going to be doing some niche research this afternoon and plan to buy a domain tonight or tomorrow. The plan is simple enough - Create a website and fill it with unique content. I realize there is much more to it then that, but I will cross those roads when I get there. I had a Wordpress hosted blog a few years ago dedicated to new music releases but I had no idea about any aspect of Internet marketing at the time. I?m hoping this journey will teach me how to become successful at running and profiting from a website. I?m not sure if I wrote too much or provided enough information for you guys. I don?t have a final date for when I want to achieve my goal of $1500/month passive income but I will try to think of a reasonable timeframe for my success. I will be updating at least every day at the start but like many of the journeys here there is no guarantee I will follow through. With my determination and self-discipline I know I will be successful. Well, here we go boys!
