    Hello to every single person which is reading this right now. First of all let me introduce myself. I am 18 years old 'kid' from Croatia (So I apologise for any writing mistakes since English is not my native language) and I have a dream. I don't like getting bossed around. Been there done that. My father owns a restaurant at the beach and during summer I am working for him and busting my ass out. He loves working in a restaurant but I don't see myself working there my whole life. Yeah you can get a lot of money by working there or by owning a restaurant but that's just not for me. I don't see myself in it.

    2 years ago I've made a youtube channel and I was so hyped and I thought I was going to become a next youtube star and that I will bank some serious money. In one year I got around 3M views at my channel and 30,000 subscribers (most of the subs were fake,I got them on addmefast). From those 3M views I earned around 500$ which sucks because I've invested so much time into editing videos and it wasn't worth it. After some time I figured out I was shit at being a youtuber. I didn't see myself in it anymore. I gave it a try and I failed but I have no regrets trying it out.

    Last year I've went into Facebook marketing. I made a Facebook page in gaming niche and I was posting constatly memes and videos. After I've seen that I am not getting many likes I started reading some tips here from BHW on how to improve that. I gotta say that it helped me a lot. In one year I've reached 450,000+ likes and I've earned around 9500$ from that Facebook page when I was promoting some affiliate sites. 1 month ago I have put my both Facebook page and website on Flippa and I've sold it for 12,000$. When I told my father about my earnings he didn't believe me because he's old fashioned. I didn't really care that he didn't believe me because I had cash haha. I wasn't the type of the kid who never got out of the house because I was working at my goals. I went out every weekend with my friends. I had time for everything. Also,one of the reasons why I started and entered into the world of internet marketing was because I didn't want to ask my parents to lend me money so I can go out. For me,there isn't a better feeling in the world than when you earn your own money with hardwork (or easy work).

    When I first started Facebook page and when I started promoting it in Facebook groups all of my friends were making fun of me. They were saying to me that I am wasting my time. But I knew they were wrong. I didn't give a shit about what they think. I knew I will succeed in my goal. (Also,don't think I got into fight with my friends because of that).

    When I sold the page all of my friends were telling me wow I knew you succeed,you should buy a new car,waste money on hoes and that kind of stuff. But that shit wasn't for me. I wanted to invest that money and get even more money. So I did this. I invested all of my money into building an apartment. Since we live basically on the beach we have a lot of tourists coming here during Summer and I knew apartment will eventually pay itself off. My parents have 4 apartments and I've seen that they have guests during whole summer so I wanted to create my own apartment which I will be renting out and so I did. I've invested all of my money and made an apartment which I will be renting out this Summer. I will post the pictures in 2 weeks once the apartment is finished. When my father saw that I really got money off internet and that I made my apartment he started crying and he told me that he's sorry because he didn't believe in me and in my marketing skills. I told him it's okay and that he doesn't need to be sorry and that I succeeded thanks to him. It motivated me a lot because he didn't believe in me. It motivated me a lot because nobody else believed in me. It motivated me a lot because only I believed in me. You should be your own motivation and don't ever let anyone to stop you from reaching your goals.

    Thank you BHW,from the bottom of my heart I am grateful for this amazing community from which I got so much knowledge.

    I started out my new facebook page and my new journey. If you'd like you can join me on my journey to see how I'm doing

    This is amazing bro, it's motivating to hear someone achieve great success!
    As for building your page likes, did you invest in facebook ads ? Or was all of this totally organic from sharing memes and posting in groups ?

    Once again major congrats!

    I've invested about 300$ all total in facebook ads. I mostly got my likes organically and from facebook groups. Thanks a lot!

    Thank you so much! Or like we say it in Zadar: FALA LIPA!

    Gracias!

    Exactly. You must never doubt in yourself.

    Thanks man,I'm glad you read it.

    Well I'd say promoting in Facebook groups was the most successful one for me.

    Great story buddy! For me personally it is the same, the best motivation is when somebody tells me "you can't" or you won't ... Negative motivation is the strongest impetus.

    Thanks man! That's right you just gotta believe in yourself and you will succeed someday.


    I know that some of you guys earn this 20k$ in like a month or even less but for me this is the biggest amount of money which I've earned so far in my life.

    Best story I have heard from a long time. You dedication is the reason for success, Many bhwer's have been here for years and made nothing. You are really mature for your age. You know how to manage your money which really astonishes me. I have seen a lot older than you waste all their money and get to point 0.

    You have all all elements of success. Hard Work + Motivation + Dedication = Success

    I predict huge future for you :) and I advice you to watch this video, you will love it and it will help you a lot.
