    Hello, everyone! I am a newbie here and plan on being very active. Would greatly appreciate any advice you could give.

    A little bit about my background:
    • I currently make low six figures a year, but I am barely getting by due to the amount of people I support (my own decision to try to step up, no turning back now!)
    • I am trying to make ~120k (total) on-top of my regular income to get a solution in place / started for those that I'm helping so that they can be more independent and I can be more in control of my own life
    • I used to do this kind of stuff 2-3 years back (I don't remember my old username), but it was mostly CPA and I was maybe making 10 dollars in profit a day.
    • It seems like a lot has changed since then, I am here for advice, guidance and to share my story / steps.
    • I work around 80 hours per week, so I am going to be very thoughtful in my plan of attack

    IF YOU were in my shoes, with the same goals that I have, what would you do? What questions would you ask? How would you plan to start? I know it usually takes money to make money.

    Best wishes and looking forward to being active here,
    Antisocial

    It really depends on what you're good at or what you're interested in, otherwise you can only receive really broad advice.

    If you're good at investing, for example, I would suggest build an e-mail list of investors, send them investment tips, and solicit investment firm clients. If you like incense, I would suggest opening an incense website, advertise via PPC and direct mail, and maybe offer a subscription service. But if you don't like any of those things, then that advice isn't helpful.

    Really helps to know what your goals are, what you have experience doing, and what you're interested in pursuing.

    Thanks for the advice, fellow Houstonian! Unfortunately due to my line of work, I can't give investment advice or bring potential investors to clients.

    I am looking to invest time, money and effort into a clean approach that won't be taken down or shut off. I am unsure what the best approach is nowadays. I am trying to decide between CPA, PPI, email sub lists, etc. I have resources, but need to relearn a lot and decide the best plan of attack.

    Its all well and good that you are ready to put in the resources to achieve your goals, but what Artizhay is saying is, what are you passionate about? What are you good at? If you are good and passionate about something (gaming, for example) the easier it is to focus on Gaming or whatever, because you will be of more value. Figure out your niche and we can figure out a plan of action...

    I am most interested in movies / film, fashion, cooking and being healthy. I am sure there are lots of ways to generate revenue off of those. However, this may be out of line or sound bad, but I am most motivated by money. For example, I sit behind a desk for around 12-16 hours a day (and have done so for a couple of years) solely for the paycheck. I treat tasks like work like a video game. Just play away and level up.
