Hey everyone, I've been a lurker and a reader for a long time now and it's about time I shared a little about what I'm doing. For those of you that don't like those "journal" type threads, feel free to leave now as predominantly this is what it'll be. Background Info A little about me... I've been an avid reader of internet marketing related sites and forums for a few years and yet I've never really made much money online. I know that I have the potential to succeed but things always keep pulling me back. Anyway, recently I decided to take responsibility for my actions and start to make some money. I've ready BHW cover to cover and I know there's tons of money making methods on this forum that still work, so I'm kinda excited to get stuck in. I know that some of the stuff even a kid could do and if I can't make money online with the advice on this forum then what can I do? I'm not a noob when it comes to online stuff and I have read a lot of material on internet marketing, but because I've never really taken any action I can't really boast about anything. I'm hoping that I can get my feet wet and begin my online adventures with the support of the great people on BHW. What Am I Doing? Good question... I'm starting with classifieds marketing (Craigslist etc). I believe that one of the reasons people never succeed is because they flip around from one idea to the next without ever seeing the first one through properly. I'm concentrating on one idea, and I want to keep working on it until I succeed. My Method Everyone on BHW has to have a "method" don't they. Going with what I've read on the forum so far I'm trying the age old, timeless classic of "sorry it's gone..." with hopefully a little twist here and there. Anyone that's done this method will know which one I mean so I'll leave it at that. I read that this is one of the easiest methods to do for beginners so I thought it would fit me perfectly. Time Available I've noticed a lot of these people writing journals seem to not spend that much time building up their online business - not me! I have spent the last 2 months preparing for this day, getting other projects and people out of my way so that the majority of my time could be spent on this. I've hopefully managed to secure myself anywhere between 30 and 50 hours a week on this. Hey, I'm single, have few friends and live with my parents so it's doable. What if I succeed? Well, the first thing I'll do is pay off my debts and buy a new car And then I'll work on diversifying my income because I don't want to put all my eggs in one basket. What if I fail? Failure is an integral part of success. If I don't have any struggles building up this business then it's not worth building. For every failure I am one step closer to success, I will not give up. Questions I'll try and answer any questions you throw my way and help other people as I hope others will help me. There are certain things I won't answer, and I'm fed up of having to read things like "what's your affiliate network?" etc like these questions even matter. I also don't plan on spoon feeding anyone, nor do I expect to get spoon fed. I believe if I'm too stupid to work this out mostly on my own then I don't deserve it. So, wish me luck on my journey through hell and back again.
