    Hey everyone,

    I`m not a big writer, but here is the deal: As journeys thread name says, this is going to be a challenge of me trying to make enough money to buy BMW 530 (e39) by the beginning of May this year. It will be difficult because I`m big n00b when it comes to making money online and have hardly made anything so far.

    I started lurking BHW about 14 months ago and last September took action inspired by WhitePassion and BassTrackerBoats and started a niche website - so far it`s development has been slow and I have no idea if I`m even going to be able to rank it, not to mention making some money out of it.

    Another thing to mention is that I have a day job - it takes away 8 hours a day, 5 days a week of my time and also a lot of energy, but thanks to it I will be able to fuel some of my IM projects.

    The GOAL

    So if I sell my current car then in order to buy 5 Series I`ll need another 5000 dollars and that`s the goal.

    How I am going to do that?

    -First things first - I`ll do fiverr gigs
    -Then I`ll try some PCA/PPD using some methods published here.
    -I will also slowly develop my niche website, however I don`t expect it to earn anything in a given time period.
    -I will try to arbitrage between amazon and classifieds, I`ll explain later

    I just counted and I have 86 days left before I`ll reach my deadline!

    Wish me luck :) I`m all eyes and ears for feedback and suggestions os kee those comment coming!

    Thanks for stopping by and catch you later :car:

    DAY 1/86
    EARNINGS $ 0/5000

    Tasks for jurney`s day 1 are following:

    -create fiverr gig - I`ll create one for translating services. My native language are latvian, so I can translate text to or from english - simple as that!
    -find 5 discounted products on amazon and put them for sale on classifieds (if someone buy - I order it with prime and then resend it to buyer)
    -reserch and start putting into action CPA method

    I think that`s enough for now, let`s go work work work :)

    Thanks tony_d and lilmasta

    hmm... new members filter is glitching. It says you may not add urls, images, etc while I`m not even trying to do that.

    Man, I'll definetely follow your journey. Wish you best of luck! BTW, I'm from Latvia, too, and one of my goals is somewhat similar to yours - I need a new beamer ASAP :D

    I think 5K is definetely doable as long as you keep yourself focused and don't let anybody tell you different. IMHO, you can do that with fiverr gigs alone if you promote them a lot and promote them smart.

    Good Choice :)

    I owned e36 , Have e39 now and one for my bro too
    Wicked and fast car. Definitelly good. With my $1500 Audio system there in place its even better :D

    But for that price, you could look for BMW e60. But e39 will be good car :)

    All the best

    F10 would be nice, but at least go for the E60. The E39 is just way too old.

    As for the car - I`m a pretty tall guy, so I feel like getting something with enough space. I don`t live in US so american cars is not an option, therefore I`m left wth german cars if I want something bigger and a decent drive. 5 series fits perfectly. Newer model would be nice ofcourse, but they have nice price tags as well :)

    DAY 2/86
    EARNINGS $ 0/5000

    ALLRIGHT, so I have completed first days goals and day 2 will be pretty similar, however after I`ll complete day 2`s goals, I`ll look into a method I came up with after reading some of the methods for CPA.

    Tasks for day 2:

    -create 10 listings on clasifieds
    -cretae another fiverr gig


    Have a productive day and follow your goals everyone!

    Thanks

    DAY 3/86
    EARNINGS $ 0/5000

    I have a day off from work today and spent it taking care of real world stuff. Not much much is going to get done today, just gona take a look in some PPD and CPA methods, maybe work out a plan to put in action tomorrow.

    Neither classifieds or fiverr has got any sales.I`ll optimize my gigs tomorrow before creating any new. Classifieds method doesn't seem to be working for now, I`ll probably give it a shot till the end of next week.

    Thats it for now, enjoy your weekend!

    You can make an instant $500-$1000 if you can get the price of the car down from an extra 5,000 to 4,000 or 4,500 by negotiating or finding another seller

    Yeah, although haggling is not my strong suit, I should be able to get it cheaper then the asking price.
