    Hi everyone,

    I'm feeling stuck these days and hope to get some advice here.

    I want to get started again in IM after a long break. I used to have a quite successful blog but I needed to sell it to pay for my student loans and I also stopped enjoying writing the blog posts. Since then I couldn't decide for a new project and jump from idea to idea, starting new projects all the time but never finishing them.

    I now got a half-finished web app, Bing+Clickbank campaigns that already made some profit but I didn't scale them up, a half-finished WSO, a single Kindle ebook that makes 30 bucks per month and I want to get started in mobile apps, social media marketing and building authority sites.

    I know that I need to focus on one or two things if I ever want to be really successful but I don't know what I should do. In 4-5 years I want to have a legit online business making a gross profit of 10k per month. My current budget is $2500.

    My talents:
    + Researching, structuring & writing information to make them easy to understand for others
    + Creativity, e.g. coming up with new, unique ideas
    + Hiring talent (outsourcing)
    + In-depth analyzing things, e.g. getting really deep into data, like campaign statistics
    + Speaking English and German

    I am bad at:
    - Customer support
    - Design
    - Programming

    What do you think I should do? I hope to get some objective advice from you guys to help me find my way.

    This is your problem buddy. You got to grow some discipline and Put all other ideas into the backseat and stick to a single project no matter what. Perseverance is what will take you to your $10k/month goal.

    I, too, have a habit of jumping from method to method. Best to stick with what you know and keep at it. I'm sure that you'll reach the 10k a month profit much sooner than 4-5 years if you keep doing any of the above continuously.

    You definitely know about the things you are good at. Consistency is the key. Rome was not built in a day :)

    You said that you have two things that are halfway finished - do that first. Finish it, let it make money, go on the next thing.

    If you look at success stories, their one common factor is focus. Focus on one thing only, forget social media and all distractions and focus.
