Okay, dad jokes aside...

In doing research on certain digital marketing stuff...I constantly found myself reading stuff from BHW and thought it would just make more sense to join the community << Closest thing to a black hat.

My story synthesized in 3 sentences:
  • Left my 9 - 5 job three months ago getting paid $70k a year in order to break into the e-commerce/online businesses space.
  • So far, I've been spending a good portion of my time doing research, reading, and setting up a Shopify store.
  • I have found things more difficult than I thought it would be but I'm still going to pursue this until December 31, after which I will get another corporate job since that means I failed to make it big on my own using the world wide web.

I wonder if there's anyone on here who left a good-paying job to try pursuing something like this...if so...shoot me a message! Would love to keep each other accountable and make sure we're hitting daily goals and tasks. That's been one of my biggest struggles...going from perfect structure (my job demanded meetings and pristine calendar management daily) to have an unlimited amount of time and so little structure.

Thanks!

Warmly,
Killua

p.s. Happy to join this awesome new family of hustlers :)

Good on ya mate. The ol 9-5 struggle can get tiresome. The online marketing world is not that easy to crack, it takes time to learn, and then it takes more time to implement what you learned, only to realise you did it all backwards!

If you want you can post a journey thread. It’s good because you will have everyone critiquing your online journey. The key to success as I’m sure your already aware is paitence and perseverance.

If you build it they will come! (Lol dad jokes!)

Hello!

That's an excellent suggestion. I would love to get critiqued and definitely improve and just learn from others. I've very new to BHW. Would you mind telling where I should post this journey thread?

Hi, Welcome to the forum..
Good luck on your money making journey..
I am also planning on doing internet marketing full time..
How many months worth of salary do you set aside before quitting your 9-5 job?

I should be fine until the end of December. I saved quite a bit of my paycheck when I was working. What kind of IM are you working on? Shopify? Or something more like Instagram marketing?

Thanks for the reply..
Maybe I'll be doing shopify on my future projects, Its nice to diversify..
But at the moment my project is affiliate marketing.. After much reading from the forum it seems sustainable enough for the long run..
Lots of people who do shopify on the forum source their product from china, do you source yours?
Also what type of marketing do you use for your shopify site?

There’s a journey section you can post in. Do you have your store setup and ready?

Best of luck to you! I am a stay at home dad with a 6 month old and left my corporate job of 12 years making $80k to do the same! Not e-commerce, but to live my life and work on my terms. Learn from your failures and you'll succeed.
