    Hi everyone,

    4 months ago I've been working in Hospitality industry. I was by all means sick of it and almost went to hospital lol. I left that bloody job , decided to grab my ball and start living my life to the fullest. I felt like the happiest person on the planet the moment I discovered drop shipping and started to earn money online for the first time! However I was blinded by the feeling of freedom and did not really took seriously that I am just making 30% of what I was getting working 5-9... Few month later my drop shipper f****d me up... , I lost a good amount of money and eBay restricted my account from selling. After this I did not try to go stealth as I am not feeling confident with doing dropshiping anymore :D. My next try was Youtube. I have uploaded few videos a month or so ago and got a total 40k monetized views via Adsense (sorry I'm noob :D ). Checked my acc and those views generated around £55. Traffic is now around 1k -3k daily.
    Have read loads of info on BHW and feels like my head gonna blow soon, I'm lost. Moreover with Xmas coming its hard to stay focused as my pockets are pretty much empty. I do not expect everyone to understand what I wrote in my chinglish but I believe there are people who could advice.

    So all in all: Should I get back to the shi**y job for a while or there is a chance to earn that minimum wage on my own? Any help would be appreciated, feel free to share whatever you think, I will use it as motivation:D

    Art.

    I'm sorry to see that you lost one of your balls, but I'm glad to see that you made a choice and took action. Internet marketing is not a get rich quick scheme. Very few people make a lot of money in the beginning. Its great that you gather a lot of valued information from this BHW, but none of that matters if you don't use that information to build and execute plans that will eventually earned you more than any 9-5 can.

    Sometimes you have to do the things that you hate doing(working the shitty 5 - 9 job ) in order to get where you want to be. You should go back to work and invest your money into your business. Once you business finally takes off... quit.

    my first money from online was from Dropshipping too, selling Tshirt on ebay, my ebay account are already banned.
    but some of my friends still selling in ebay and make living from ebay, until now.

    now i am on CPA, ( I am always fail in adsense ), if you still playing with youtube. let CPA be your second choice , because my main traffic is from youtube.

    but all of these is need time, you should consider to back to offline working
    just my 2 c

    You're in London so plenty of higher paid temp work coming up over the next month in hospitiality.

    Think I'd take advantage of that, work as many hours as poss over December and New Year, save every penny of it you can - not hard cos you'll be working and won't be able to spend, then hit the IM stuff hard in January with a little bit of money behind you

    A little update: since my last post was able to get £700 from some sales and other stuff. Also managed to create a passive (fixed) income system which brings around 300 a month. Feels like I have been biten by IM bug and learning new things brings loads of pleasure. So will countinue to push myself to the limit doing IM full time.

    There are few people (my girlfriend and few friends/familiars ) who think that working online is not serious and you cant make decent money with IM. Ou boys, I promise they will change their mind!

    People always doubted me and my whole online thing at first. Now I laugh to the bank when they see how I live, where I live and the cars I drive. Don't let people get you down man, I took any doubters as more fuel to my fire of success and succeeding. In the end, I won and now I look at what they all do and laugh going in to work for someone else and make far less than I do.

    I would never go back to a minimum wage job if I were you. If you put effort forth, you can easily make more than minimum wage in an hour online. Do your thing man, I believe in you!
