    Hey everyone,

    I just found this forum about 2 weeks ago and I have made a few posts. The one thing I forgot to do was introduce myself!

    I just quit my job last week, I was a web developer for an e-commerce company, and it's funny how I came across BHW right after I put my 2 week notice in.

    A bit of my background:
    I have always been active in making money in various ways. The earliest I can remember was when I was in 2nd grade, I was buying and selling candy at lunch. I read the book Rich Dad Poor Dad when I was 8 years old. As I got to 4th-6th grade, I started to buy gumball machines and vending machines and put them in hair salons. I had my own eBay store throughout junior high and high school and then I got into some internet marketing. I honestly didn't realize it at the time but I was doing the online surveys and I kept getting people to sign up under me. I think I had around 600 direct referrals on one account. I was making a few hundred a month. Then college hit and I focused on buying and selling things through CL. It actually worked out really well.

    After college, I took a few jobs and realized it was a terrible way to live.. the 9-5 BS. Since I've been fully unemployed (a whole week now and I'm loving it), I have been on this forum for about 10+ hours each day as I build my own IM strategies. I am a strong believer in IM and I have been for a long time, I just didn't know it until recently. I do have a journey that I have been working towards which I will probably be posting soon.

    There are certain times in a person's life where there is a sudden change in the person. I reached that point as soon as I left my old job because I was completely sick of the way that the majority of people think you HAVE to work for someone... I am an entrepreneur and I always have been. I am going to succeed in IM, no matter how long it takes and I will make the necessary sacrifices to see it through.

    The reason that BHW has changed me life is because I finally found like minded people who share a similar desire. I want to thank you all for inspiring me and I would love to chat with any BHW member so we can push each other toward success. Just PM me or post on here and I'll get back to you.

    Welcome to the Club jpthurdler, you are in good company here - most of us hate corporate slavery and are into the wild. We eat what we hunt, some days we are hungry others we get lucky but we are here to survive the jungle that is out there. Let's do this together!

    I wish you the best of luck OP. The thing I found pushed me toward success the most is a positive attitude. You're on the right track.
