Hi Guys, This is my first journey here even though I've been lurking here for a while and never bothered to do it until now. A little background before starting : I'm a student in international relations ( popcorn time for someone in my field ) in Romania and I'm a french who fled from his beloved country because I was sick of the current mood, the mentality and the boundaries that everyone always put on me. For now I'm in the 2nd year of the bachelor degree even if I'm 22 I just had a hard time to find something that was sparking my interest and also worked/chilled for some time. Now my goal is quite simple, in fact I have multiple : 1. Paying for my mother's wedding, both of my parents are quite busy and she is always working without taking care of her own person, she did everything and still does to give us a good life and now it's time to pay back. 2.Being financially independent, actually I'm independent already but my income is mostly from the state who provide me some money to do my studies. 3.Launching my company. My plan : Since study doesn't take me much time and IM/SEO/Marketing/etc... is one of my hobby I decided that I would open a company in France which should be set up on the 1st of April, I will work here remotely and try to do as much money on the long term as possible. I will also experiment on some other projects like PPC etc just for fun and to gain a little bit of knowledge and why not some nice additionnal income but the company is my main focus. Currently my income looks like this French state financial aid : 472 euros/mo ( sorry folks I'm an European I like euros and not dollars ) Romanian state financial aid : 75 euros/mo It's cool to score the top of the leaderboard haha Personnal savings that I had to study abroad : 250 euros/mo ( this is actually my rent + utilities + some other stuff ) French classes at the university : 50 euros/mo not that much but I get access to a lot of useful stuff and more important contacts and it is only 2hours per week where I should normally be in another course so... French classes over the internet : 150 euros/mo only 2 hours per week but this guy turn out to be my first client for my company. Random income from IM : between 150 to 600 euros not steady income but always nice to fund my knack for sneakers And that's it for the first post, not to many details but I will follow up, I mainly created this thread as a milestone for me and to push myself to document and put the amount of work needed to succeed. I will post soon my adventures into this scary thing that is the internet. Oh and I printed this and placed it next to my screen to remind me the direction I should not go.
