    So recently I took the plunge and incorporated, became an LLC, rather than just a sole proprietor.

    There were a few reasons for this, one being that I could now apply to a few more CPA networks no problem, and have a legit business practice. Oh, and protecting my ass if something turns bad.

    But there's been ONE problem I've been running into for quite a while now....cash flow.

    I'm 22. I don't make much money from my day job, and don't have all that much saved up. I have roughly ~$800 to really play with in PPC. Last time I ran a PPC campaign, I almost went into debt just waiting for the aff network's check to arrive. This was with a credit card. Maxed the card, didn't have money to back it, and had to wait almost 60 days for the aff network to send the damn check. Not fun.

    So I wanna go the higher limit credit card route and have heard from numerous people that the Amex Plum Card is the way to go. I figure the $800 can take me quite the way, and maybe if I start doing decent volume I can get weekly wires. Who knows though.

    So what kind of requirements would getting a Plum card have? I'm young, recently incorporated, and only have around 3 years worth of credit.

    you shouldnt really be playing on the edge like that, just save up some backup money so you dont have to worry. you might not make as much money while saving but you wont have to think about how to save the situation when something happens.
