    Hi everyone,

    I am from Brazil while English is not my specialty, I have learned some of it due to the work I do it became a necessity, my English is most self learned and I bet I am full of grammar errors, hehehe, nevertheless, I hope community can understand me just fine.

    I come from a poor family and was/still am unable to go to a university due to the circumstances, I work since I was 10 (part time, mostly by favor), I started working at an early age to try to get something for myself, like having money to go out and stuff like that, regardless of that I never earned much money until I reached 16 and got my first full time job (8 hours work here), since my family was poor, we never had money to spare with this sort of commodities.

    Once I turned 16, I got my first full time job. Its been a while and I am about to turn 23, I've switched work a few times when I had better opportunities but still, I don't earn much, I earn about $400 USD, I get free health and dental plan from my work, once I turned 20, I moved to a small apartment, my money is just enough to pay all my bills, rent, annual apartment tax (we can usually divide that along 3 months), energy, water, phone, food, house necessities and transporting (bus/train).

    Unhappily being able to get on scholarship on any public university was never something I could go for as I was never too bright to get into it (not to mention the competition is huge), and yes I have tried a few times and right now I don't know when and if I will ever be able to make university, be it private or public.

    I work as an IT assistance, as I can't get any higher due to my poor scholarship, unless I can do university. While the company often pay us to make side courses (like LPI, CISCO, etc) and improve our quality that doesn't give us any better qualification within it to impose a better salary other then the annual salary adjustments.

    Since the time I started working I've managed to learn a huge sum of knowledge with Linux administration and networking, web programming in Perl, PHP, desktop programming with C# and little C++.

    I am able to create applications to do automated tasks, websites, I know how to use/configure/admin WordPress and I have a pretty good knowledge on web development, my proficiency if I had to say is within developing desktop applications in C#, that is what I was mostly working with besides doing server administration/networking at the places I worked at.

    I've recently found this forum on the internet and found it interesting and decided to join.

    While I do know most of the things around here (when I say I know, I don't mean about making money but the services used to it like YouTube, Facebook, making sites, on site SEO, etc), I am not much knowledge on how to monetize any of it, I could make bots or dive into some method, but what I am really looking for, IF that is possible is someone that would be interested to take me under his/her wings and teach me some method so I can walk on my on or perhaps if some one is interested on my skills I could develop applications and that person would monetize it for me and split the share.

    I am not sure if I am being very realistic on this as I don't think many people would take anyone under their wings to teach how they make money, while I would like to test all sort of methods around and see what works and what doesn't I don't think I would be successful trying several different methods, there are so many old threads that were never updated which makes me very confused on what works well and what doesn't.

    I have skype for communication and since from what the rules say, I can't PM until certain amount of posts but if you feel like giving me an initial push, drop me a PM with your Skype and lets chat.

    Right now I am setting my goal to make something like $5/d or even $1/d just to prove myself that this could be something worth to upgrade my life situation, hope you guys can help me out ;)
