This is my second post, but the journey has to begin somewhere. I currently have very limited knowledge and no experience in this arena. That's obviously bad news for me, and not conducive to my goal of earning $100 a day through IM. However, I have the next best things. I have a toolbox. And in my toolbox are all the things I need to be successful. I have time and a strong appreciation for the value of cumulative hours, I have discipline, I know the importance of hard work and dedication and what fruits they might potentially bear, I now have these forums in my toolbox and all the resourceful, experienced people who post here, and I have motivation behind me to accelerate me towards my goal, as well as the inertia of my self confidence to keep me on track and always moving forward. I also have a respect for the labor of those who have accomplished what I seek to accomplish. I'm well aware it isn't going to be a fast or easy process, but I believe accepting that is already half the battle. I have nothing to offer beyond that in terms of progress. I will update this thread frequently, perhaps daily, with what I am doing and what I plan to do. There's a lot to be learned and a lot of work to be done, but I will get there in time. I look forward to interacting with the community here and learning what I can from all of you. I appreciate any input, tips, criticisms, etc that you have to offer me. Like I said I am an absolute beginner as of now, so any feedback or valuable resources/information are greatly appreciated. It all starts here though, someday I will reach the $100 a day mark. Progress: I found this site and registered, as well as created an introductory post. I also read the forums and researched basic IM for several hours. To Do: Develop a plan. How will I move forward towards my goal? I first need to research the qualities of a profitable niche and then locate an appropriate niche to monetize.
