    Hello BHW, long time lurker, I hate for my first post to be asking for advice rather than giving advice since this community is so helpful and I hate to not be giving back right now. But let me cut the B.S, I had some money tied into the Forex with one of those bots and I am currently down a large chunk of money ( around 10k ). Now that is the bad part, the good part is that I have about 3-4 weeks to pay my bills ( credit cards, car insurance, rent etc ). So I wanted to know if anyone can help me build myself back so that I can get back on my feet. I have tried e-whoring but that did not go well in my favor. And i'm still struggling with affiliate marketing using c.l gumtree etc. I want to put together a realistic plan using online money making methods so I can at least survive to next month and beyond and the job market is looking shitty in my area and I dont really have much family to lean on. So if anyone can help me I would greatly appreciate it. Also I hate to put this out there, because I know this sounds like a b.s sob story and I dont want to waste the community's time but if any of you guys can help me with this I would gladly appreciate it.

    this may sound harsh, but what the hell do you need to make 5000 bucks for? if that are your monthly expenses, you should seriously cut back on your lifestyle, get rid of liabilities, sell the car and other stuff you don't need. if it's debt, i really hope you've learned a lesson on not investing cash you can't afford to lose into forex, especially when using bots. again, i don't want to be mean, just giving you a little kick in the ass.

    and screw ewhoring, that petty cash will bring you nowhere near 5000/month considering the work and hourly rate involved. you need multiple streams of income which can be upscaled.

    i'm plotting out some methods and strategies atm to finally get away from freelancing and smalltime stuff. you seem motivated enough, so if you're interested in a little JV - shoot me a PM so we can talk.

    What are your skills? If you can pick up some work on freelancing sites, you can make some good money. Maybe not as much as you need, but enough to get you to the next month. You have to eat first and foremost. Screw the car and credit cards for now. Yes, it will hurt your credit rating, but your health cannot be replaced.

    So again what can you do to make money online? Code? Landing pages? Create accounts? Post to craigslist? Sell a facebook account? Write/re-write articles? Anything? Tell us.

    Members here are always looking for a service or something. If you have something they want, we will buy it.

    EDIT: blackhat50: Chill out. The guy is looking to 'make money'. I am sure he thought it was in the correct section. Of course, it should be in the lounge and I am sure the mods will take care of it shortly. Chillllllllllllllll.

    This has to be a troll. 5k bills and relying on forex bots with no spare money? Sounds like a plan. Sell your car. Cut your expenses. Build from the beginning. All you can do.

    all the help you'll need is right here in the BHW. Spend a day reading through methods, create a plan of action, then take massive action until you reach your goal.

    And if you expenses per month are more than you can afford, you definitely either need to cut back or get a job.

    Meh I say Wrong . If you have no brain ewhoring will never make you 5k . But unlike that erroneous statement yes ewhoring can make you 5k a month .

    It is a common misconception that it can not because people are new and do not really think about things like SCALING IT UP and THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX. If you do neither of those ewhoring probably will not make you 5k a day..

    OK bushwacka go hide in a corner I am about to make you look like a fool.

    Think outside the box

    There is more ways to ewhore than just chatting with guys on IM that is the basic form . There is also adult ads you can place . Some in places like Craigslist. Others yeah you can even do social sites like twitter to ewhore guys and myspace .

    2 scale it up no matter WHAT you do if you can make 50 dollars a day DAMN it you can make 500 .Here is why.

    Hire outsourcers to do the work for you . If you yourself are making 50 a day posting ads on Craigslist for example . Hire 10 outsourcers to do the exact same thing you are doing . You just made you 500 a day providing they do exactly everything you do . Cost of those freelancers maybe MAYBE 200 dollars a day . TOPS so that is 300 dollars profit .We will go with a 30 day month . Providing that all days you make about 300 dollars profit that is a monthly profit of 9k dollars .

    DOH ! I think I over achieved on that one . Ok downsize that plan of action for 5k a month .


    *points finger and LAUGHS at bushwacka*
    Ownage what a beautiful thing!

    Also I am not a troll, I know I am being very vague and that doesnt help the situation but here : Wamu card Balance : $6,500 ( Maxed ) HSBC Card : $6,000 ( Maxed ) Citibank Card : $1,873 ( Limit is $2k ) Amex ( Mothers Card ) Balance ( $7,321 ) Student Loans : Deferred Thankfully ( Possible $100-$200/month but doesn't apply right now ) About 10k of this debt was on the forex, and yes 5k was too extreme, but I want to take all this crap down ASAP. Sorry if this doesnt belong here but I also wanted to discuss what money making methods I could do to get me out of the whole and I also wanted to stay on topic so sorry for being vague in the beginning.

    Well you are right, all you guys are right I was a friggin idiot that got greedy but I have learned my lesson. I think I could definitely scale back the expenses and get it down to about 1k-2k a month, talked to my roommate last night and he is willing to cover my ass for the rent ( awesome ). Now I all I need is to cover credit cards, a little for gas and little for groceries. So I think 1-2k is pretty accurate. I got schemes currently that I can get $200-$800 out of. Now that is my start up capital. I was thinking of writing articles maybe ( Although AC might be dead or i can go after niches that aren't being attended to ) ? Or just start on craigslist. I already scoped out affiliate programs and made an excel spreadsheet of about 10-15. So I guess I could say FCuk outsourcing and start developing my skills that I could use for myself and sell to people on BHW ? Any 2cents will be extremely grateful. And the 5k estimate were just more credit cards ( from forex ), sorry for the inflation I just WANT to get out of debt ASAP!!
    * Sorry for the crappy quote insert, as you can tell still getting use to the platform*

    Yes yes I know, too lazy to get a job, please burn me all you want. I deserve it but a job right now could be the answer but like I said the job market in my area which is nyc is pretty crappy unless I want to take anything. Also two months ago I was handing out my resume so I'm not talking smack. And if I do get some random job why not develop a skill set and learn some methods which could benefit me in the long run as I try and look for a opportunity that could be the next "big" idea.

    jeeez valwardon, take it easy. i was talking about doing ewhoring YOURSELF on myspace/IM, like most ppl probably do - while your post is more or less about almost a little business plan.

    point your finger, laugh and own all day if you want, i couldn't care less. and if you strip the ewhoring defense and the bashing from your post, what's left is a nice little hint, maybe even a good method - and not to forget, a reminder to myself and everybody else that everything can be upscaled big, even if one never considered doing it because of focusing on other things (like me).

    so yeah, errr....thx, i'm gonna make an ebook out of this and sell it on DP asap :p

    Joe there is no way u can make $5000 a month from where you are now. Try having a lower target and read through this fantastic forum. Get at least 8 - 10 money making ways and get them started. Plan and plan and plan....always.

    Do not rush and take it confidently. Believe in yourself and God, everything will be ok. And to be honest, stop asking all of us the ways to make 5K because everything is provided in the forum. Test a few methods and then ask if they don't work or u have plans to scale them up. Not trying to be harsh on you but seriously dude, you need to use the time wasted creating and replying on this thread and start to do something right now.

    All the best :)

    If you can make $5,000 a month your first month learning bh, you are doing something right. Like everyone said.... READ around the forum.

    It seems though that you are one of the get rich quick type of people though that do not want to put in the hard work. You have to still put in the work in bh. (OK maybe not but we can't share that here and you haven't learned enough).

    We all learn our lessons and I hope this is a lesson you learn.

    And stay away from crap like Forex... you wanna know where this old /btard saying comes from?
    step number 3 with the question marks? That stands for "Do Nothing". It's taken out because there IS no sure plan where you just drop money, do nothing and profit.

    Example: Are there any champion roulette players? no. Roulette is just "put money here, let them spin, ??????? profit!!!"

    But when you watch the world series of poker, it's almost the SAME 30 players at the last table. Thats because they don't have a ?????? step in their strategy. Pure planning and skill.

    So stop depending on bots and chance to fill in the ?????????? for you. Get out that debt hole, get a plan and STAY OUT!
