    Hey everyone,

    I just found this website a couple of days ago and so far it has been great. In the last month I've opened an eCommerce store selling funny t-shirts I designed. I've made a couple hundred pounds from it. From each sale I've been making around £6 ($9) so I'm not making the most profit but it's still something as I am still 16 and it's better than working in retail like some people I know.

    I have two blogs. One is a funny site where people submit short posts and one is a music blog where I write. I launched the music blog two weeks ago. I've been interviewing loads of musicians for the website. I am publishing interviews on a schedule so I haven't posted lots of them and the most recent people I've interviewed are more famous than the first few. I mean they are not the MOST famous artists. But they have around hundreds of thousands of fans on Facebook so it couldn't hurt if they posted the interview there ;)

    I have a goal of really building these websites and I, unlike lots of other noobs here, are really taking the stuff I read here and applying it. I'm doing well with my SEO - building backlinks (manually and paid for), trying to get a social media buzz and trying to monetize the blog.

    I also post ads for my eCommerce store on my websites.

    I have a goal of reaching £1000 this month - by 6th September. Yeah, I just thought I'd tell you. Thanks a lot. You're all awesome and you've helped me a lot. Even if I don't succeed with the goal, for me it's just about the motivation. LOL. That's what everyone says before they fail... Haha. Anyways, thanks again!

    I've failed many times, and I've never said that. :p On topic though, good luck making the 1,000. I know it's difficult, but it's not impossible. If you can't make it this month, then try making it next. Don't be disheartened simply because you can't hit your goal right away.

    Failure?! Do you really believe in it??

    If you decide to make something in your life you are already ahead of many people, trust me, the greatest step has already been taken, and this is for few. What you call 'failure' it's actually your reward for your initiative and also your first test. More than that, it's actually a privilege and not everyone knows it. If you get up and persist at your path, after your fall(the failure), then it proves you have nerve to succeed. Otherwise it proves that you're weak and can't proceed. This is a natural selection and all the winners faced it. What you'll learn from this 'failure' will be a unique experience, and you'll also learn how to use it at the appropriate time.

    This is the right path for all the winners: initiative => failure = > SUCCESS.

    They are all related and all the winners went and go through all of them.

    Everything is up to you!

    I've started from nothing and made $1,000 within the first month so it is possible. But you're much better selling something in the £50 - £100 range. Quit using dollars too, believe it or not you can actually sell stuff in other currencies other than USD. Crazy I know...

    Barely made sense. I used GBP in the post not USD. Besides, I sell to all across the world...

    Anyway, thanks.
