    Now time to say bye bye to 2011 and time to evaluate and learn from our mistakes. How was 2011 for you IM wise.

    It is right time to evaluate what we did in 2011 and what is the outcome of all the work. What we have learned and what kind of mistakes we need not to repeat in 2012. If we are at the same stage at the starting of 2011 that means we need to hustle hard and make every effort to become bigger in 2012.

    I will start evaluating myself. It was an OK year for me and I have learned new stuff and I'm planning to execute all the things in next year with a fresh start. What about you?

    I learned so much stuff it's crazy..especially about SEO, text message marketing, and niche sites. I think the biggest lesson I learned is do this because you love it and not necessarily for the money. When it becomes solely about the money and not doing it because you appreciate it or love it, you loose sight. Even thinking about changing my name from moneyneeded to loveit...lol. I don't know if that is allowed though...probably not. And I have not earned alot but it was my own fault, for not taking action or being scared. Eventually I did, earning a little here and there on methods I tried. Truly believe I will get there soon.

    I would define 2011 as the "start of an era" for me. Learned a ton of knowledge and started trying out many things at once. Some worked some did not. Kept the ones working and evolved them.

    Can't say I made much from all these till now but I covered the costs for my little experiments and advanced way more than I should.

    Now its time for the "big hits" in 2012. - ohhh btw. there is no luck in all these, just trial & error & work & originality - at least thats what I understood till now... cheers bhworlders

    2011 is probably the most important year in my life. First of all i become a father and also i found the BHW and the IM.

    11 months ago, i didnt know the difference between domain and hosting. I found a local IM forum by mistake and i learn the basic for 4-5 months but still no money. May 2011 i found BHW and 2 months later i got my first $ online. So far my income is not huge but its stable.

    The most important mistake: i read too much. In 2012 i wanna work harder and take more actions. Enough reading for now. I am still a newbie and i have to learn a lot, but i think its is time to learn from my own experience, not for reading forums all day.

    It wasn't that good for me, but then again I wasted to much time in the lounge and not doing anything. 2012 will be great for me, Im going to work alot more then spending so much time in lounge theorizing about things.

    Well not too good for me but Im a noob. I made $250 from writing articles. I made 2 satellite PC tv sales on Clickbank from comment posting ($30 per sale) , and I wrote an HYIP ebook that sold zero copies on DP :( . I also tried offering website creation services and promotion to local businesses, I didn't get any seo or web design clients, but one of the guys I talked to paid me $25 an hour to remove viruses for 2 hours and he said he will pay me to create a WP website in 2 weeks :)

    Im still a noob with alot I need learn, but I am confident that soon I will learn enough to make some more serious money online.

    Extra income was awesome thanks to IM and big thanks to BHW community, in a month and a half going big with a team ). Working full time was paying for all my bills, car and extra expenses and IM was something I put aside and now with a buck in the pocket im investing lets say few K in a project.

    Thanks for 2011 BHW!!!

    I started IM this year. I created a few sites and one of them was making a large amount each month. I sold that site (10x monthly revenue) and used the money as an investment for bigger things. Currently doing pretty well and with very little effort. As soon as you have money to invest in outsourcing your life becomes a hell of a lot easier...

    IM wise - shit, complete and utter failure.
    Money wise - very good, mainly helping the pros out here with a few bots or scripts and handsomely rewarded by them (thanks guys!)

    2012 will see me trying to get into IM and not be just a coder.

    2011 was my best so far. I learned so much - you could say it was my first year. 2012 is going to be bigger and better for me. Hey ho let's go! (lol)
