    Hi Guys,

    I've been browsing here the last few days and just signed up. I'm sure you've heard similar stories before but here's where I am:

    For a while I've been wanting to make money online, preferably largely passive in the long term with no more than a couple of hours per day work. I have a fairly well paying job but due to extortionate rents in my part of the world I am spending most of my money on renting and have ended up in debt. I don't have a car, I don't spend lots of money, I don't even go on holiday/vacation yet I'm still so poor at the end of each month that I'm getting into debt. It makes me very angry.

    Anyway, being fed up with this situation I've committed myself to a target and I'm hoping the good and knowledgeable people here can help point me in the right direction. I am not afraid of learning, hard work and putting things into action. My tenancy expires in 6 months time, and by then I want to have made £5000 (about $7800 USD). which (depending on the situation in 6 months) will allow me to either completely pay off my debt or use as a deposit to buy my own place. Of course, If I can do both of those things then even better.

    I have had some experience over the years with basic web design and graphic design. I've never done anything with IM. I've already spied a few methods on here that I'm hoping will help me hit my target, although obviously I realise there will be some time before I start seeing any income.

    So - My goal: make at least £5000 (Aprx $7800) by 1st March 2016 - but preferably £10,000 ($15600). My plan - using three or four methods which (once set up) shouldn't take more than 2 hours per day of my time, and within 6 weeks to aim to be making a target of £150 ($230) every day, 7 days a week. I plan to start with Meathead's "$100 a day method good for noobs" review linking gig.

    I know it's an ambitious target, but it's what I'm aiming for. Is this complete fantasy?

    (I've chosen a higher daily target than needed so that I'd still make over £10,000 after tax)

    Any advice appreciated.

    Wow. I guess I bored everyone to death!

    I've since discovered the Journey board, so will post something up there.

    It's definitely an ambitious goal but you if you put real effort it's possible.

    Make detailed plan for the first month and think real hard about the traffic source you gonna use.

    Not impossible by any means. But you better be prepared to be very disciplined and put the work in. Why limit yourself to 2 hours a day? That is 14 hours a week. Like I said, I believe it is possible, but giving yourself only 14 hours a week is going to give you a lot less room for error

    Thanks for the responses guys. After having looked around the forum I think it's ambitious target but possible. In truth I've set a higher target than I actually need in order to push myself. If I fall short then I'm sure I will still have more than I ever previously thought was possible to make in that amount of time.

    I agree that the sticking point will be the time investment. Making that kind of money might be possible but not necessarily in 2 hours a day. The reason I've picked that is because I can't afford to give up my full time job yet and along with travel time it's realistically all I can regularly commit every day. I plan to put in a bit of extra work at weekends but I'll count that as a bonus. I have a couple of weeks off from work coming up so hopefully I can do most of the heavy lifting then.

    I have factored in the fact that I won't be making much if anything the first couple of months. If I can hit £150 a day for the last 4 months I'll still hit the target.

    Thanks again for your input. :eek:
