    Okay let me start out by telling you a little about myself, I started IM in 2010 on Warrior Forum. I probably spent 100 x 7 dollars on WSO's for months, and didn't make a cent unfortunately. So I quit and forgot all about IM for about a year or so.

    Okay and then in 2012 I got back on the IM ball because I had some time off of work (3 months to be exact) and yes I went right back to WF. I bought more WSO's until I found a great one talking about Amazon Affiliate. Long story short I implemented everything in that WSO, and by the time I went back to work I made money online for the first time! And I also discovered BHM!

    After finding BHM I began a journey of content locking, any and everything. So in 2012 I had made about $200 dollars, and in 2013 up until about February I worked hard on PPD + Youtube, and was making money. But then I just stopped working because I was seeing the money roll in (not a lot at all). So all together in 2013 I've made 4 or $500 dollars, but I know I should have way more than that if only I didn't slack off and get comfortable.

    Anyway now I'm on a personal journey to a "Better Me" and I though I should accompany that with a journey to make money online too. As hard as I feel it is sometimes to make money online, I love doing it. I feel like this might be little harder to begin because I have a full time job, working grave-shift hours. But I will do whatever I can as far as IM goes, everyday. And also Update as much as possible.

    Okay so I don't really have a concrete plan on how I plan to make this money but I'm going to start with Youtube+site+PPD or CPA and in between time work on Amazon affiliate sites. I haven't made any money online in the last couple of days so nothing to report on earnings right now.

    But here's a list of what I will do today:
    -I will finish up a video that I began working on for one of my CPA locked sites
    -I will figure out what exactly I want to accomplish on this journey.



    Oh and another thing to set myself apart from the pack sort of lol, I'm going to leave you guys with a positive quote everyday, so here ya go.

    "It's never to late to become who you though you could have been."

    sorry no reference ;p

    Okay I've just finished making the video pointing to my CPA'd site. That was easier than I thought, I feel pretty accomplished!

    Oh and I figured out that I would probably much rather do YouTube -->site+cpa right now since it's much easier, but I'll still be doing some keyword research for Amazon so I can be ready when I get time to start that.

    Well this was a good first day, I hope everyone is having a great day and making money. Well here's another quote since I posted again and I just feel like it lol:

    ?The truth is, what you do matters. What you do today matters. What you do every day matters. Successful people just do the things that seem to make no difference in the act of doing them and they do them over and over and over until the compound effect kicks in.? - Jeff Olsen

    Okay today I didn't get a lot done because I stayed overtime at my job. So here's what I did:

    -I boosted the video pointing to my site with views, likes,and favorites.

    -I created about 4 more youtube accounts and uploaded the same video (changed a little) with different keywords.

    -Still waiting to see some results.

    Yup that's pretty much it, if something happens I'll let you know.

    Okay I got some good news and some not so good news here's what happened yesterday:

    - - I got 2 hits to my site but neither one came from YouTube- And no conversions

    - - But I forgot to tell you guys that I did have another video that I uploaded about a week ago , that video is on the 3rd page.

    Anyway that video has gotten me three leads today!! One lead with A CPA link and the other two for PPD.

    So, so far I have made $2.14 today! Hmmm I might have to make a couple of more of those type of videos (game/generator/key gen).

    I'll let you know what I do today either later on today before I go to bed , or tomorrow morning.

    Okay today my video that's more games oriented finally got to the middle of the first page. But it's still not converting like I expected, it is pretty saturated. So now I'm going to find a new niche, I did make $1.40 from it yesterday though.

    Anyway I'm still not seeing any action on my site, no traffic at all. Huh this is frustrating, but the thing is I know my site isn't as great as it could be, so that's what I'll be working on the next couple of days.

    I wont be doing a whole lot this week because I got a call one hour before work yesterday saying you're off today sorry. So I basically wasted my whole day sleeping and getting ready for work only to be off. huuh I really dislike this job.

    But anyway I'll still try and update you everyday or at least leave you with a positive quote.

    Nothing to report. made about $2 yesterday. I'm definitely not hitting this as hard as I should be, but the time needed to do this is hard to come by. Oh well I'll try harder.

    My part time job got in the way of my IM, so I quit. Now I'm making way more than working a retail job :)
    Keep working hard OP! Your motivation is there, but it will get harder to keep as time passes by, especially if you're not making much money.
    Don't focus on how much you're making right now but focus on the things that have to be done in the time frame that you have.
    Good luck on your journey! :eek:

    PS: I like the quotes you put at the end of your posts :)

    Thank you! I need all the motivation I can get.

    Thanks! yeah I'm to a point now where I want to quit, but I need the money from that job for other stuff. I've been reading books on time management so maybe that could help me. if all else fails, I'm quitting!

    and your journey is inspiring, your a beast!

    Okay I'm back sorry for not updating for these last couple of days but I had a lot going on. I accidentally overdrew on my bank account, so all that money I worked so hard for at the job I can't stand, half of it was taken by the bank. Huh but I didn't let it keep me down, I found a new niche that I think will bring me a nice amount of money, hopefully. I made an original video for it plus a blog spot, so now I'm just boosting.

    The video I told you was on the first page, is now at the top of the page and it's converting much better! So I'm making a couple of bucks from that.

    So here's what I plan to do:

    - Find more niches
    - Learn how to use Visual Basics a lot better
    - Boost my video
    - Do some seo work on the blogspot

    Well that's all I can really commit to at the moment, but for some reason I'm so motivated after the bank took my money because it's just making me work harder lol.
