I've lurked on Black Hat World in the past but I never pursued anything due to working for a local alarm company that I had ownership in. Well, a year later, said alarm company has grossed 370k, but is still 40k in debt. I've lost faith in the majority owner for mismanagement (and being severely underpaid) and I'm looking to strike out on my own. I hope to learn a lot while I'm here that will help me do just that! (I'm curious, is this the appropriate forum to discuss my situation and goals in hopes for advice or is that a different board?) Thanks in advance, Slantje! ETA: My goal is to make 3k in less than 2 weeks and maintain a monthly income of at least 4k a month. I want to create a youtube channel where I discuss old and new video games, graphic and web design, and other interests of mine. This is more of a passion project than it is anything else. I'd like to create passive income avenues that don't require too much attention but allow me the freedom to focus on my passion projects. The 3k is to create a new gaming/video editing PC as mine bit the dust a month ago. I have Intermediate to Professional graphic design skills (I'd post a link to my design site but I'm pretty sure that's against the rules) and Intermediate web design (mostly wordpress) skills. I'm very interested in putting those skills to use to meet my goals and being pointed in the right direction would be greatly appreciated!
