    Programmers will get it....

    What up, BHW'ers. I didn't follow proper protocol, introducing myself before venturing in the great black (and white) beyond that is the forum. So this is my making up for that and doing the cordials before going right up the forum's skirt. ;)

    Screen name is obvious but I know most won't want to type it in it's entirety so can just go "AJ" for short.

    Have a few different topics that I've studied ad nauseam as it relates to money making but have only shuffled along because I believe I need to be better capitalized in order to get them sufficiently off the ground.

    At present, my bread and butter comes from moving VeRO items on eBay (fairly successful but would be VERY good if I quit procrastinating and scale it out like I've intricately planned it). I'd like to go White Hat but nervous at the possibility of a drop in profit margin.

    I've recently bought a house for $7.4k cash that, if I could finish, could sell/re-fi for $35k-$50k. Real estate is one of those topics I've really dug into (been studying it for over a decade). I go to meetings once monthly, hobnob w/ successful investors, understand the business model and could probably run an authority site on the topic if I understood SEO, using it as a source of income to actually further invest in RE.

    Which brings me to my reason for being here. I want to learn the IM game, black, white and the 50+ shades of grey in-between and use it as a springboard to do all the other things I'm currently, to some degree, involved in (besides RE, I have been studying FOREX for almost a decade, personal/business credit for half a decade, have a fledgling IT business (prior profession but no REAL interest in pursuing even though I know enough to be dangerous as a result of older bro being a programming genius who's every step I clung to as a kid),

    By now, you'll notice a long-windedness in my intro. My command of the English language and writing ability is something I take pride in and, as such, I'm a typo/grammar-Nazi. Was originally a journalism major in college (drop-out). Have written a few technical ebooks from a previous business partnership that failed to evolve so as a result, the ebooks are sitting on a digital shelf of sorts, never having seen the light of virtual day. I am the type that needs to understand topics down to a molecular level with a side-effect of that being that I can thoroughly explain it in layman's to anybody with at least modicum of comprehension skills and true interest in the topic. Creativity is another natural strength.

    My reason for being only mildly successful in life: I am working on 20 things at any given time, I'm lazy/scared when it comes to fully implementing any of my self-perceived (and often times peer confirmed) awesome ideas fully, I work better in a group of forward thinkers/doers vs. going at it solo (accountability forces me into action), never was very good at managing money (though heads and shoulders above where I used to be), I can be a recluse at times, and I have challenges w/ self-worth. Hell, I am hard pressed to take a damn simple compliment when given from anyone.

    As can be seen above, I strive at all times to be brutally honest about myself, to myself and others. I work to transcend ego-based thoughts and actions. I classify myself as "chaotic good" aligned.

    If it isn't apparent, I should say that I'm am prone to rambling. That being said and this reading damn near like a gotdamn diary entry, I close by saying again: "Hello (BH)World".

    Now let's see how many errors in spelling/punctuation/sentence structure I get called out on....:cool:

    Preciate the welcome, ramanan.

    Quick question for board: where can I post questions related to IM?

    I have an opportunity that has been presented to me from a colleague on starting a completely white-hat ecomm store from scratch and I basically want to hash out how best to move. I'll explain in detail once I know proper section to list it in and nah, this isn't some bait trap. It's really a task that I'm thinking might be a good bit beyond my skill-set right now so I plan on outsourcing some of the work to one comprehensive or a combo of IM servicers provided in BHW marketplace (don't waste time PM'ing if you aren't a storied member on the board). It might possibly be best that I post this on an e-comm forum but I haven't really dug into which are good ones and considering the abilities of some members here, seems this is the best place to get guidance and going.
