    Introduction

    I am eighteen years old guy from Eastern Europe and in upcoming month I am finishing High School. I believe that this was the easiest stage of my life and since now it will be a lot harder. Recently I realized that now is the perfect time to take action and start building my path to success. This journey won?t be only about IM. It will be about the whole way of becoming successful man in life and in business. In my mind I have a vision of a person I would like to be and I will try to achieve it step by step. I will divide this whole journey into a lot of small journeys with duration from 30 to 90 days because it will keep me more motivated and consistent.

    Let?s begin

    Journey #1 - 45 days

    Objectives:

    • Read one book.
    • Consistently take notes about my minds and behavior. (I think that the hardest thing in life is to develop and maintain a strong mindset. When you have it you can achieve whatever you want)
    • Make ?500.
    My plan to make ?500


    1. I will search for small businesses websites which are in the second or lower page of Google for some important low competition keywords and will try to offer them my SEO services. (The most of work here I will outsource)
    2. I will search for small businesses which are selling their products or services through classified ads and will offer them my web development services. (I am not a professional web developer, but I am using WordPress for a long time so I am able to make simple business websites. However, later I am going to expand my knowledge in this area)
    3. I have a couple micro niche websites which for their main keywords are in top 10 and top 15 positions in Google. So I will try to sell them.

    Day 1

    Today I did a research and found ~40 small businesses without websites. Most of them are in the same niche. I have a doubt about the conversion rate in this niche, but I will still try it.

    Money: ?0

    Look , let me be honest with you , you may fail in the beginning , it's okay , we all failed in the past , I am still failing in some projects even now , the key here it's to wonder and find out what did go wrong , once you start realizing everything it will be way much easier in the upcoming projects , so do not worry if you won't see results at all , at least you will learn something that will help you in the future , anyway I am sure you can do it so go ahead OP

    Thanks for support!

    Thanks, your words are very inspiring!

    DAY 2,3


    Yesterday I had some personal issues so I didn't do anything related to this journey.

    Today I made my first 6 calls offering website development services. One person seemed interested so I will call him once more next week. With other five hadn't any success. What I realized today is that I hate cold calling! :D So I put an advertisement that I am looking for people who could do this job for 20% commissions. I hope that I will find someone.

    I know that many people work with this method and I think it isn't hard to get new customers.
    Definitely you can get good results if you can hire a real expert in the calls' field.

    My advice is to show few examples of websites that you already ranked, this will increase for sure your success rate :)

    Thanks!

    Thank you for support!

    Thanks! I hope you will make it! ;)

    At the moment everything seems really difficult for me and yes a real expert in telemarketing field would be extremely useful because I have no experience in this field. So far I am mostly concentrated on web development services, but a little bit later when I will start to promote SEO services I will definitely use your advice. Thanks!

    Day 4


    Today I didn't do any cold calling because I think that Friday is a bad day for that because most people are thinking about upcoming weekend and their brains are switching off from work. The most of my work time I have spent talking with a guy who has some experience in telemarketing field so he gave me some advices and he seemed interested to work with me. I really hope that we will make a deal. Tomorrow I am going to order a logo for my brand name and create a nice .pdf brochure with my offer which I will send to email after phone conversation.

    Day 5-8

    I have made a deal with a couple guys who will try to do cold calling. One of them should start in upcoming days and other on May 25th. I also have made a few more calls by myself, but with no success. I hate cold calling and I don't have experience in it so maybe those guys will bring me some clients.

    During these 4 days I was searching for a new method to work with because my long term goal is to get the most of my income from the internet and my seo/web development services isn't that thing which I would be glad to do in the long term. So I decided to try meathead1234 method, but instead of ClickBank for monetization I will be using CPA.


    My plan for upcoming days:



    1. [*=left]Select a niche.
      [*=left]Buy a domain.
      [*=left]Create a website.
      [*=left]Buy a little bit content for a start.
