    Hey BHW brothers ! I don't like to post much and rather prefer to read what other guys here say .But today I felt like I should tell you friends particularly the newbies whom I find here posting in many threads that they are unable to earn from IM .

    I started out in 2009 , I was 17 then and in 11th grade ( School ) . Actually in my country ( INDIA ) internet and computers were not that rage until these last few years . I got my first computer in 2008 and it took me one year to realize that money can be made out of this stuff ! . There was a shit company named Corporatesociety which was fooling people by saying "get rich from ad sense , from internet , earn money from your website ." Under the packet they were just giving a domain name and hosting platform for 150$ for one year . I joined them with high and wild dreams . Got a website and got ad sense on that . My website was shitty and I earned like 100$ in 3 months and when I was expecting adsense money to arrive I got a mail from my google babes that my account has been banned . Bang , I felt a hammer has just hit my head . All my dreams have flushed through the toilet . What to do ? :(


    I recollected my courage and hope and tried again for adsense . Applied from different computers and cyber cafes but nothing worked . Got approved twice after many attempts but again the same stuff - banned . I was trying to marry a girl (adsense) who wasn't interested in me . Finally After around one year I quit ( I quit adsense not IM or my desire to make money) . I took up a job from a friend who was a IM . It was social bookmarking , directory submission stuff . I was paid 200$ a month for that hard stuff . My 12th grade exams were approaching and there was a huge pressure from my family to concentrate on my studies and the competitive exams that will follow like the IIT and AIEEE . But I paid no heed , Computer and internet was my life . But my friend said me that he stopped the project on which I was working . So my job was gone . Also my family took away my computer and internet so that I would concentrate on studies . I got depressed But the Hardcore guy inside me refused to quit . So I took a debt of 200$ , got a second-hand computer for 150$ . And a net connection for 30$ . I kept these things at a friends home and started secretly working from there . I took projects on my own but wasn't successful . Few times I wasn't on time and other times the client wasn't satisfied . My 200$ seemed to be going in vain , I was having sleepless nights ! Then came the exams . Exams went shitty I just managed to pass . But I kept motivating myself that one stroke of luck is all I need things will be good ! :D


    After exams ended up I again started working with a fresh spirit . I didn't get good college so my parents decided that I attend the 12th grade exams once again and use whole of this year 2010 for preparing for those exams . Call it a gift of God but this was good as it helped me to buy some time to sit in front of computer . I stared working again and this time from home . Looked for new opportunities , got to know about SEO but found it too time consuming so I looked for short-cuts . This was my worst mistake . I got into some survey sites , which said they will pay like 1-5$ per survey . But none of them paid . I was again duped . I started loosing hope . My spirit was breaking . Each day I was feeling more depressed and failed . But I didn't quit, kept looking .Then in December 2010 I got to know about sites like sharecash which paid for getting your files downloaded . I tried youtube+sharecash but didn't worked . Then I tried putting passworded torrents but that didn't worked too ! Then came the exams so I stopped working for a while .


    Exams again went the shitty way :p and poor results . Just passed and got into a college which was no good . But guess what ..this college was a blessing in disguise as here it wasn't compulsory to attend classes or a certain no of class . So now after settling into college I decided to start IM again . And to take care of the cost I planned to give tutions for 3 hours each day . This was June 2011 .I started again from torrent and found a way to get my videos viral and get people download my stuff which was hosted on sharecash . Then I worked out on torrents and got some success on there . So I was doing torrents and youtube those days from june to september 2011 . My net profit was 1500$ . I stopped giving tutions and now I had all my confidence back to work all out in IM . I got a few sites for myself . Started doing PPC as well . :D


    Around Jan 2012 I was making money with PPC . Also I was creating my own sites on various niches . I employed few peoples around 10-15 out of which most of them were my college friends . So I was doing PPC then and also my sites were growing . My employees were doing stuffs like SEO , Viral marketing , Social marketing for me . The beast inside me was smelling blood and so I scaled up my stuffs . Right now I am doing Clickbank , CPA offers and my traffic sources are PPC , PPV , and of course my sites . I have a complete team dedicated towards me . And I make it a point to pay them well . They are all colleges going guys and what they earn from me is what funds their studies . One of those boys lost his father recently and Now what he earns from my job is what drives life of his family which consists of his mother and his sister also . Looking back now to the times when I was struggling . I remember each one who said crap about me and my future . When ever such people meet me on my way , I try to expand my chest so wide , so that they can see the vast sea of pride inside me and regret all their life what they said to me . There are many more from whom I have to take revenge and I have made a pledge to myself that I will .

    I look to scale up further and reach higher goals . I will let you guys know when I achieve them . It's 31/07/2012 and it's 1 am . As I am about to go to bed , I want you all newbies to follow some simple rules in life . Don't let others views about you bother you . Back yourself , make mistakes and learn from them . Hardwork is a pain worth taking . Avoid regrets . Be a Hardcore .

    Love you BHW and fellow members :)

    Congrats, I'm sure your post is inspiring! I skimmed through since it just looks like a big chunk of words. BUT, I'm glad you pushed on in spite of shortcomings and reached success.

    WOW! At first when i look at this poor formatting i am about to close this tab but something made me to read what you've got. But After reading your whole post, i can FEEL my blood gushing through my veins. Very inspirational! I like how your solid confidence now helps your friends to pay college fee and run their family.

    Hats off to your non-stop hard work even after you failed several times.

    Good read. Though maybe break it up a bit, so it is a tad easier to read.

    Haha I enjoyed 'the beast inside me was smelling blood and so I scaled up'

    So you've stopped making money with sharecash and moved on to other things? Congrats! Being able to have employees is a pretty huge step in the right direction. Just keep scaling up and I'm sure you'll be able to hire more and more.

    Your success story motivates newbies not to rely solely on adsense. Thanks man, and maybe someday you will take out time to share a working method to BHW.Congrats!
