  1. Hello BHW,

    Its my aim since childhood to study software engineering in University of Sydney (US) or university of New South Wales (UNSW). But apparently their costs are really high and my family can't afford for them. I got no other option than to get hired in part time job. But here in Australia, students can work only 20 hrs per week (legally) and I don't wanna break any sort of rules.
    If I work 20 hrs per week then also I will make hardly $13000 per year. That's not even 50% of the fees I need to pay for my desired university. So, the last option for me is to make money online. Like if I am able to earn $3000/month in a constant ratio, then I can pay my fees and also will be able to save some as my pocket money.

    Therefore, I really need any suggestion from PRO earners of BHW. If you guys help me then I can achieve my education. I really want to be a software engineer. :(

    Well, looking at the figures you need to make about $100/day. So, find something that you can do to make $1/day, then scale it up :) Not a spoonfed method, I know, but it's a good general strategy. That's how any IM'er starts making real money.

    You say you want to be a software engineer; what programming skills do you have? Depending on your abilities, you can either create custom software for your own marketing use, or create software to sell to others (as I do).

  3. Thanks for the info. I am about to study software engineerin' but I got very limited software designing skills currently. Is there any way I can do this besides Internet Marketing? I have some CPA company's account too but unsure how to use it.

    Couldn't you get a student's grant for studying abroad ? A lot of universities are cheaper than that, and some are better.

    So you need to earn $100 per day every single day. You can provided you have some great skill sets. So make a list of some really great skill sets that you possess and begin working with those. You'll need to find matching jobs/services/methods to your skill sets, and then deliver the service/products that are better than the competition.

    Read the sections here and collect ideas. Then work like a possessed man to earn that kind of money. You'll need a lot of inner strength and motivation to do things on your own.

    GL. Be that sw engineer one day, preferably with your own earned money! :)

    And of course, no one will hold a spoon in their hands and feed you.

    Like others have said, Hecs is very helpful in some cases, however you really need to understand it because you can be in debt for quite some time if you don't do it right.

    This way of making money sucks at the start but it is very doable.

    Go to a freelancer site and offer to do something relatively simple for a low price i.e. backlinking building or anything, find a piece of software on BHW which helps you automate the task or even simply take the job on the freelancer site and outsource it here. Get some good feedback and slowly raise your price. If you do a good job then people will rehire you at the more expensive price. I've had multiple people work for me who provided great quality work for $2.50/hour which is great rates for them, and they did this full on for 2 weeks for me and others at this rate, after two weeks and 5 positive feedback his rate was $7.50 and then got another 2 contracts for 2-4weeks at $7.50/hour now he's at $12.50/hour.

    Even though you probably won't have time to work more than 20hours a week during this course, you can do it under the table.

    This should at least get you some short term cash which you can then invest in software and then you can sell stuff on fiverr or something or do more freelancing. I've easily made over $3,000profit fiverr in 6months time with each gig taking no more than 10minutes to complete. Just try and get 1 gig a day and reinvest it to try and get more.

    But yeah, if you can outsource something that's always a great way to go, so act as a bit of a middleman if you don't have huge time or a large skill set.
