    Hi All,

    New to BHW so here's abit about me

    I'm a 21 y/o Australian guy, Deferred 4th year Business Marketing/Design Uni Student. Recently decided that my new found interest in IM could make me much better money then working as a grad... Better late than never I guess. Living In Melbourne, any locals shout out!

    Here's a brief history of myself.

    Past:
    - Finished Top 12 in Australian Junior Motocross Titles at Sunshine Coast, QLD
    - Left Mid for QLD & reserves for Aus soccer until I stopped playing 17
    - Former Pro X360 CoD Player (CG Pro/Invite League & Invitation to play with rise)
    - Worked in Optus outbound sales call centre for 2 years, Achieving the highest sales AUS wide - 4 times consecutively (only to get screwed over, wasn't paid any of the $134,000 they owed me in commission across the 2 years) ~ smoked me hard...


    - I've got skills in Marketing (Sales) & Design. Also have some knowledge in coding.
    - Personal Trainer & Online Fitness Coach
    - Working in Retail at the moment, feeling like I'm 16 again... (in addition to PT)


    Purpose of signing up to this site:
    To start getting ahead, earning $$ without slaving away at two jobs.. Eventually earning at least 150k + per year purely through IM.

    Advice or recommended threads to read would be much appreciated, I'm open to any methods ;)

    Welcome!

    You've achieved some impressive things I must say. I'm really just starting out so far from the best source of advice, but I reckon you should specifically check out the journey threads especially any relating you what you're interested in doing. The whole forum can be a good read though and you might find little ideas or techniques that you can blend together. Good luck in your endeavours man!

    Although I moved when I was 16 (now 24) I'm a Melburnian myself:cool:

    is your name Karl?

    I searched your name on FB. Do you work at Jetts near Harvy Norman? I am a member there but I hardly go any more.

    If I was in the Goldy I'd be crying, not laughing.

    although if by GC you meant Gods Country, then you would be correct, I'm in FNQ.

    I had a look at your FB, you don't look familiar. I don't go out in Noosa much, just keep to myself really. I work and go to uni in Maroochydore so I don't have much time for anything else.

    I just sent you a PM. I think I sent it twice cause BHW lagged as I was sending it the first time.
