Hey BHW, I've been lurking around here for a little over a month, have learned a lot from all the old threads I have gone through, and have already had some excellent experiences buying a few services from the marketplace. I walked out of my well paying corporate job at the beginning of this year, despite not yet having a proven full-time income to fall back on. I simply could not take one more day of that extremely toxic environment, that was completely run on an energy of anxiety and a cult of overwork. Every single day that I was there, I had to lie to myself and everyone around me about who I really was, what my thoughts, feelings and opinions were. I made a decision that I was going to do whatever it took to find something else to do where I could be fully authentic and be myself and speak my mind. Inevitably that decision lead me the path of entrepeneurship. For the past several months I have been pursuing a couple different business models, including private-labeling Amazon FBA and ranking several local lead-gen sites and selling leads to local businesses. I haven't hit gold yet, but I hope and feel that I am knocking on the door and something has got to give any day now. I've put a lot of time and money, and more importantly mental energy into solving the problem of how to make money online. I'm really betting 100% on my self here to get something going, as I have no other source of income at the moment. I am very fortunate in that I have a savings buffer which will carry me through the next few months, I have a very healthy line of credit to draw upon, and if worst comes to worst I have a very supportive family network that is fully behind me and my aspirations. Again, I am at a very positive place overall (for the first time of my life), as I just know something has to work eventually, especially since my 'why' motivation is strong enough and I have no choice but to succeed. I intuitively understand the need to diversify the projects that I am working on, so that all of my eggs are not in one basket, and that planting more seeds will maximize my chances of success. That's why I'm happy to be a part of this BHW forum, there is so much immense value here, as people are literally just spoon feeding great strategies and business models for others to go out and implement. My intention here is to be one of the 'doers' who doesn't just read and consume information, but actually goes out and takes the action. Glad to be here, thanks to everyone who has contributed to this forum over the past several years. I am very grateful for this virtual treasure-trove of information.
