    I am soon going to be getting my money back from the paypal dispute with Dan2friend. I currently only do three things.

    1. Ebay Selling
    2. Amazon Selling
    3. Seo Services


    So I will have $190 dollars not tied up in anything.

    What should I do with it.

    Thanks BHW!

    first thing beware from ppl will contact you and ask you to invest with them ....

    well that money is good to buy few PR 3 domains and flip it later or sell backlinks from it , but you should know how
    evaluate the PR domains fake or not ........

    Only you know what you want to do.

    Like ferma231 stated in a previous post,

    The SEO guy will suggest SEO
    The Amazon guy will suggest Amazon
    The Ebay guy will suggest Ebay

    My opinion is that you should find not something that you're passionate about, but something you think might lead you somewhere and could be profitable, try, fail, and try to invest as little money as you can now.

    Also, make connections! Good luck.

    Buy a domain & hosting.
    Buy TrafficTravis for your SEO needs (KW, ranking etc)

    Install a good/premium WordPress theme on your hosting and run a blog/affiliate/ClickBank etc website.

    Buy only few SEO tools with $100. Buy a Windows VPS to run the tools 24/7. Do experiment with that tools. If you get success and gather experience then open a BST here or other marketplace.
    Best of luck

    OP clearly doesn't know what he wants to do. There are multiple ideas being held equally true, causing dissonance.

    I'll add this: The Regular User will suggest Regular Ideas

    You think you should not find something that you're passionate about, but something you think could be profitable? You say this from experience? Are you qualified to even evaluate market opportunities without creating more problems than solutions? Let me guess, you're getting a finance, business administration, or similar degree because it seems the most profitable...

    Invest as little money as you can now. Why? What if the $190 could make $19,000 in a few months if he spent it NOW? Do you see how irresponsible posturing and giving incomplete, generic advice is?

    If those ideas were true, everyone on BHW would be succeeding. They're not because they don't take risks when they should, and they follow what everyone else is doing, which is exactly what you're suggesting to OP.

    OP, get the hell to work. Do something. Create something that wasn't there before. You're looking for a get-rich-quick shindig, let's be real, because $190 can't do anything but buy some hosting/domains/articles/software/graphics, or, again, everyone on BHW would be succeeding.

    Be different. Be intelligent.

    CMS = Joomla, its way more intuitive than wordpress. monetize your website. Sell Information products.
    Shopping Cart = OpenCart, Its what I use :). Sell stuff>>> physical products.

    Yes, i state that nobody should follow his passion anymore. What everyone should follow is fulfilling needs. Want passion? Get rich and fulfill your passion but not do it a business, it just doesnt work like that. Why mix business with hobby? 2 different things.

    And about the spending, i meant that he should start spending as little as possible till he is confident enough to scale it up and invest much more. And your advice is pretty generic ALSO.

    If you have to ASK what you should spend your money on you're better off saving it until YOU know what to spend it on.

    If you've had success in the past with something (even micro success) stick to it, and dont bounce around. Use the money to scale whatever has worked for you in the past or to cover your blackhat basics ... linux VPS, windows VPS, Proxies.

    Put it in the bank and keep it away from the scammers until you don't have to ask that question.

    There is lots of free information learnn everything you can before throwing your money away.
