    Ok ok, I'm NOT going to give up, but JESUS!

    I've tried nearly everything (obviously that's a lie or I would actually be making a decent income), I'm still not making enough to float me..

    I'm sorry for this post guys, it's 6am, I've had no sleep, and I'm becoming a bit downhearted. I'll recover, but I need a pickmeup from you guys.

    I got a nice $63 check last week, and a $34 check from clickbank a few days later, but that's the first real money I've seen from my 2 years of learning and experimenting.

    To be honest, I haven't gotten to experiment much, because ALL the money I DO make goes toward the kids, the rent, the bills, etc. I'm lucky to get one new domain a month. So, I can't just go all willy-nilly with the domains.

    I definitely have long-term goals and vision and want to eventually build a stable business and stop being a guerrilla marketer, but what I NEED is:

    At least $40/day to float me while I get the bigger things set up.

    I see people claiming they make $100/day and BITCHING ABOUT IT!

    $100/day would be a godsend. But obviously I'm not creative enough to even reach that.

    I've learned that anyone who has a good, working technique is not going to tell me about it, and the majority of ebooks are full of shit and will never get me anywhere.

    Oh, what to do? :confused:

    Sorry for the rant guys.....I'm not even sure if any of it made sense.
    Maybe I'll feel better after a couple cups of coffee.

    Any advice, support, or ideas? :(

    No matter what happens don't ever give up. Let me rephrase that to something more strict. DONT EVER FUCKING GIVE UP.

    PS - I feel your pain, it's 7:30am and I'm just now going to bed...

    hehe, I expected someone to bring that up. :p
    I just feel like I don't have enough practical ideas. It feels like I'm in a race against time to earn a little bit of freakin cash. How hard can it be?

    I can relate to you, I have been getting very discouraged also. But I can't let myself quit. If other people can do it we can to. But yeah I feel like stoppin but I can't. Too much time and money invested. Gotta try to keep your eye on the prize, what ever that may be for you. For me it's not having a boss. Keep on keeping on then one day it will all click and our hard and persistent work will pay off.

    Thanks for all the kind words! I had a 20 minute nap so I'm back to my motivated self. I haven't been able to pull much profit yet, but that doesn't mean I can't do it. Same goes for all of you!

    I guess the main thing I'm afraid of is wasting anymore time with bullshit techniques that have no chance in hell of working.

    You hit the nail on the head!

    Stop following the herd and quit trying the next "surefire technique" that comes out every other week.

    Most people expect to make a million overnight and sure it happens to a lucky few (just like winning the lottery) but for most they continue to plug away till they find what works for THEM, then they replicate the process.

    It really is that simply. Seriously, find something that works for YOU and stick to it!

    Absolutely! It seems that my mind is stuck in the cookie-cutter patterns that have already been released. I've had many original ideas, but nothing that I can act on with quick results.

    I got out of the funk I was in this morning and got the fuck back to work. :p
