I've found myself here through digging around for ways to make money. To make GOOD money, sustainable money, and easy money. Now I don't expect to start off and press some buttons and get a few thousand dollars. I understand that even this "Easy"money will be slow at first, and it will still require effort and work on my part. The reason I say easy is because I work nearly 35 hours a week at a BUSY restaurant as a cook making under $12/hr. I was contented with this for a long while until almost a year ago next month, my father passed away. My dad was everything to me and in the last few years we had become a bit estranged, although he's always been my hero, and he suddenly passed away unexpectedly to do diabetic complications. He didn't prepare for this (He was relatively young) and didn't leave us much behind except random belongings that are now precious to me, and a few thousand in life insurance. Ultimately I got less than 10k from it and have less than 3k left, and I'm no longer content with my 9-5 slave routine. I want to take this last bit of cash and this new determination and unhappiness with my current life and transform it into something. I want to make my Dad proud, even though he's not around to see it. I know what he always knew what I was capable of, but have always been lazy. I came across this forum and after reading around quite a bit I am both cautious and excited to begin trying my hand at some of this. If someone could mentor me to start off, that'd be excellent! Or if I could be pointed in the direction of some good guides that are 2015-relevant.. Perhaps a suggestion on where to start even would be nice I suppose. After I post here I'll be browsing the 'Journeys' section. I went and after reading some things around here bought a domain and hosting and put together a website based on a niche I know well, and have ideas and information to expand it personally with my own quality content. Not sure HOW niche it is or if there's any profit potential in it but it's something I know and I figured even if I couldn't monetize, the practice would be beneficial. Looking forward to hearing from you hats!
