    I have been a member of BHW for about 2 years now and have gotten SO MUCH value from the forums that any member has access to, and I thank you all!

    I am really strapped for cash right now but I now of a few forum threads that have been moved to the Jr. VIP section over the last few months and would love to have access to them, but right now $97.00 is a lot for me.

    So, to all you Jr. VIP members, help me make the decision to make the leap. Tell me some of the great things that await me on "the other side"!

    Thanks!

    If you are really strapped then I would hold off.

    Fact is, there is some great stuff in Jr. VIP. AND, I personally felt I should give back for all the information BHW has provided me with.

    BUT...that said, if you cannot master enough of the lower level stuff to earn enough scrap to actually pay for Jr. VIP without going broke then I would wait.

    Keep reading, focus on 1-2 things and put all your effort into it. Earn some $ and then give back. Just my 2 cents. For me personally, the relationships I've built with "senior" members here at BHW as a result of my Jr. VIP access was/is worth far more than the methods there.

    At the end of the day it is all about networking and leveraging each others' talents to succeed.

    Thanks for all the great replies already!

    The main reason I am strapped is due to the CL changes that happened back in June.

    I paid my bills "owning" one specific CL section locally and selling leads to legit local businesses.

    I got lazy because of how easy it was and when they made the "big change" I have since been ghosted and had multiple accounts killed. I have bought many numbers to create new PVA's, use DSL resetting my IP addy everytime and deleting cookies, using different browsers, even VM''s and all my friends and family's computers to make new accounts and post more local ads, but I still haven't been able to "crack the code".

    If I could figure this out I wouldn't be so strapped. I got lazy I guess instead of learning and growing.

    If I could get help with this one thing I definitely could afford to upgrade to Jr. VIP within a few days to couple weeks.

    Thanks again for all your help guys. BHW is the best forum on the internets without a doubt!
