I'm just an average guy. I live in a 2 bedroom apartment with my wife and pets. I live on about 3k a month between 2 individuals. Ive got 2 car loans, 5 credit cards (2 of them maxed out), and in total about 30k in debt. Theres hardly any money left after paying bills every 2 weeks. This is my life. This is almost the same life with the people around me too. Being from a small town, people dont usually have aspirations or dreams. They either follow their fathers footsteps or go to college, get debt, and figure it out once they get a "real job." Im not okay with this. I'm not into giving half my life to a job I hate so I can celebrate in 30 years after retirement. $70,000. Thats the goal. I want to go from 35k to 70k by the end of this year. What can I do with that? Get a starter house, pay off my vehicles, take a real vacation (not a day trip), be on the road to 10k per month. What have I done so far? YouTube - Start Date (2/15/16) Total Revenue (so far) ~$4500 I've spent 11 years on youtube. I've created about 5 channels in that time frame. and have gotten over 70+ million views on my videos combined. 60 mil from one month alone when one of my videos went super viral earlier this year. Right now I run only 1 channel that has 18k subscribers and 3+ Million views. This channel still brings me $100 a month and I havent posted in about 5 months. I do not plan on using this to make my money. Youtube to me has fallen to the wayside and I no longer wish to be on camera or edit videos. Overall I have made between 4 and 5k with youtube. 3000 of that being in the last 12 months. eCommerce 1 - Start Date (4/20/17) Total Revenue before this post started ~ $1200 Total Revenue after this post started ~ $4 I had my first real business idea in Feb 2017. Since then I began working on a website and researching as much as I can. I officially launched my first online business in Apr 2017. It was a slow start for the first couple months, but now I have made over $700 in profit in my last 30 days from this. It is beginning to grow at an alarming rate and I am now having trouble keeping up because this is not a dropshipping business. I create the product in house and made to order. This is where most of my time is spent now. eCommerce 2 - Start date (7/17/17) Total Revenue before ~$64 Total Revenue after ~$0 This is my first dropshipping business. All product comes from aliexpress and I use shopify. This is the one I'm most skeptical about. In the process of still building the website but I have added 16 products to my store and run 1 ad right now. In the first 3 days I made 64 bucks. This was a small victory. I have a feeling this road will be the one to get me to my goal. Right now my days are spent making my product for store #1, prepping and shipping the sales, setting up store #2, and building up both brands. Im not sure what else to add right now, but Im going to keep this post updated once a week and let you all know what kind of accomplishments Im making. Ive seen so many people post their journeys, stick to it, and reach their goals. This is my plan too. If you guys have any questions Id be happy to answer them as best I can. For now, just keep on keepin on my friends.
