I have the feeling I need to share this. Maybe to wake things up for some people - or to disillusion some guys . I just want to talk about the making money online thing here. There is NO Culture what so ever for people that want to earn a living online. That want to travel the world, live where they want, do WHAT they want, earn as much as they have brains, hours/day or stamina. Either do it like a biz, or spam-the-crap out of social media. I'm in this whole making money online stuff since 2009 - made it official in 2012. I pay tax, I pay health insurance, I donate to my local church. I was able to completely live for 2 years (!) without worries. just sitting in some underwear in front of a computer, loving my (ex)wife, and dressing just to go out of my place and to shoot some video marketing Yeah, I liked it. Still do. But, in ALL those years - I have yet to find some GERMAN guys, that have this dream and really worked for it. Most of those "Germanz IM guyz", they suck ballz. you just look at them - they neither feel rich, nor look rich. they dont travel the world, they dont bang hotties, they dont live where they want. (well, I did not "travel the world" - it's a bit problematic if you love your cat ) . but I lived where I wanted, did what I wanted, and enjoyed it. Those German IM Guyz here -- it is just a waste of time even contacting them. I even FREELY offer people to coach them!!! NOT ONE CAME! not one of my friends, or whatsoever social circle asked. or was interested. non one wants to fail, try, and repeat. no one wants to invest. no one wants to pay for coaching! want some examples? I got IT equip for 5k here - mac pro, lighting, DSLR, lenses, mic, and so on.. I pay for software lincenses. hosting, proxy, yadayada.. heck, I even paid 3figure sum for some guys, to teach me paid traffic (I still suck), and teach me IG botting - I score I invested a 3 figure sum some years ago to learn list-building. scored big time . Thanks Chris Farrell I guess burned 4 digits on some paid ad and made NOTHING. and so on.. those people here in that country? They just DREAM! They dont even start with a free blog. they just WISH. They dont offer value. Heck guys. EVEN spamming social media, you "offer" some kind of value - you do some kind of work - let's bet true here!!! even if you spam those networks with CPI - you really think that the people that install those apps hate that? hell no. If they hate that and feel annoyed, they would not install a bit of software... in the end. it's spam. but it works... I made 1800 (!!!) videos in the past. approx 1200 reviews. no one wants to do this. I dont count, but 1/3 of my youtube channels, dont make 10€ / month - there was no audience . I tested. I tried... I even did all this backlinking-shit in the past... I sell kindle ebooks. I promoted clickbank products If there IS a way to make 1$/day, I WANT TO LEARN IT and test it if I like it. Those people here in my country, they dont even pickup a 25cent deposit bottle and bring it to to next supermarket 10 feet away - how the hell you expect to make money online??? How the hell to expect to be FREE from a boss? freem from 9-5? free from 2hours commuting every day? when I started that whole online biz thing, I worked 8 hours PLUS 2 for my blogs. i sometimes work 14 hours a day. and MAKE NOTHING! Cause I test, and make NOTHING! And then, I score. And I expand. And I try different ways to earn a living. I just got fed up yesterday.. I got some great runnning social media projects in the diet niche. couple of 5 digits followers (that equals 20x in english. just to remind you. ). Called a company to promote their shit FOR FREE as affiliate. never heard of them... just call ONE US company, get a marketing guy on the phone and tell them: "Bro, I got 50 k followers on twitter, pin, IG & youtube. send me some products, I promote them". You got UPS next day... Great to have this forum. Always go where the money is at. If you dont have people that aspire to get rich, be free from office-slavery, read good blogs, or forums. ATM, I HAVE TO work in an office. Cause I neglected my biz in the last 2 years. Was completely my fault and now I am working to get that back up and not be depended on this office job - still like the task, but hate that office thing . yes, guys, I feel you. I could freelance what I do there, but I suck at getting clients. there are some things I am great at, some I suck. If I suck, that equals work. And if you feel it is work, you will suck at this. It will drain you. If you like, what you do, it will inspire you. It will keep you going through rough times. And there were rough times in the past... Amazon reducing their commisssion... I bank half the amount I made 2 years.. I lost one clickbank partner to bankrucpty - lost 200€ NET of easy commissions.... from one to the next day.. and so on... I see all this talented you guys around me. Dreaming big. Wanting to make their degrees.. They all get wasted as office slaves. Wasting their potential. Ending up as some ball sucking teamleader, making the usual 60-80000 with 60hours job in some cubicle. Getting fat, lazy and low testosterone.. And they end with some girl close to their own age - falling in love and popping out some babies, bevor they even reach their potential.. it's the same cycle over and over again... And dreaming big, without even working hard and failing their way up. And guys, just don't think that country here is so uber great and save. If you are a office slave, you will stay as one. I NEVER head a company that was interested in my talents or where I could max my potential. It's the same crappy shit everywhere. And I am hitting it hard ATM to get out. I dont care if I make 10€ more a month. I dont care if it just 1€ / day. It is money, I can make at home. With my cat sitting on my lap, living in a city where I want and working when or how I like. I just have to get all this shit backup where It was 2 years ago. Heck, I dont waste my time with slutty girls (it is fun I can telly you . ) binch drinking, and partying 3 days a week. I invest that time into my biz. As usual, some advice: -if you think Germany is a great place to work and earn money? I you can't do it in your country, you will suck here to. -if you think you can shortcut your way to success? You will fail. Else: get some mentors and pay them. Read books, pay for other peoples experiences. Do seminars, and so on. Educate. -Get some degree. If all this online stuff fails, you need a job. get some kind of degree. -Watch what you read, and hear. Fill your mind with content that drives you, motivates you. -Do some weight liftig and eat clean. -Stop complaining. It it does not work, shed some tears. move on. -and finally: IM IS WORK! Find stuff that come easy to you. I suck at writing - you can easily spot this with this kind of writing style.. But I can teach you 2 hours about cats via videos.. And so on. I love botting. I hate paid ads. You see? Find that. Do it. -DONT MARRY WITHOUT A PREN-UP! ( I had one ) -DONT HAVE KIDS BEFORE 35! If you have some life goal , COMPLETE THIS. -GET A GIRL THAT IS AT LEAST 5-10 years YOUNGER than you if you plan on having something long term. -and If you want some real dating advice, you can contact me too I been there. Like I said, I was very active the last 2 years. You have to be good ad something you know Even coach that dating sh1t to guys atm Questions. Ask me..
