    I am in the spot where I am waiting for my checks to come in which can be another two months and broke AF.

    I have already setup 3 more sites and setup 2 PBNs from auctions. Now I am completely dry so just wondering, what do you guys do when you are waiting around for SEO to kick in? Can this time be utilized well or should I just waste it on procrastination.

    I do understand that feeling and you are likely not to do anything if you keep in the same spirit. The best way for you to do now is have some plans on how you are going to make the improvements on the current state. I am so sure that you want to make even more from the current amount. Therefore be in the process of figuring out what next btw. In so doing, you will also be able to plan for the money you are waiting and make good use of them.

    Keep working, set up more sites or if you are broke then Web 2's and social accounts.

    Don't sit around doing nothing.

    There are multiple ways you can go, however relying on a check that usually takes 2-3 months to arrive is not the most convinient thing.

    If I were you, I would do the following:

    1) Set a Goal - This is one thing I failed to do for most of my IM career but has now changed gladly. Set goals whether they're financial, social or whatever. This will the extra fuel pushing you to work harder so you can achieve them.

    2) Focus on getting a new source of income - Don't cut out your current one, but try new things out. Many things come with instant results, meaning you'll know quickly whether the method works or not. If it works, scale.

    3) Educate yourself - There are a ton of audiobooks, seminars, conferneces, posts on various forums, this, that. Read read read, educate yourself. I know you said you are not as financial stable right now but just a tip when you can: don't stop investing in yourself. Don't be afraid to pay to attend conferences, for audibooks, and all that stuff.


    Best of luck.
    Luka

    Honestly 2 PBNs won't do you much, you need other links or more PBNs.

    Make 2.0s, blog comments, edu links, white hat stuff like outreach etc. That's all free you just need time.

    As mentioned above one of the most valuable and effective resources is to outreach to actual people.
    1. Don't just join groups and post links .. Actually connect with people.
    2. Speak about their business and how their journey began.
    3. Building contacts equals leads, leads turn into clients.
    4. Don't go straight into sales mode, building a online reputation is the most effective and free way to self advertise.
    5. Stay true to your word, break that and the isn't enough adwords to build your character back up.
    Best of luck in your journey.
