Hi folks, i've been lurking on this forum for quite a while now and since the community seems to be really friendly, I decided to join you all to share my journey and to thanks you for everything you already learned me. First things first I must apologize for my english that is far from perfect as I am French. Now about my life, I just turned 18 and I've always been an "outiside the box" kind of kid. Interested in many topics such as painting, fashion, sports and art in general but also informatic and physics, I've always tried to start projects built my first computer at 14 and by the age of 16 i've even had website that got about 80 to 100 UV per day without knowing a damn about monetization and SEO, just by providing quality content. I did that because I was always bored at school. It's not that i'm have some high I.Q or anything but I just found that most of the thing we learned were boring, politicaly correct and usless, i've always belived that school's main purpose was to prepare us for a life of servitude under our future boss directions. Despite that, some of my teachers really touched me in the way they practiced their job and i can't argue about the utility of school when it comes to learning the basics such as how to write, organize yourself and behave properly in society. Despite all that, i've never had the courage to stop school and do my own thing, most of my choice in life where always toughly decided by my father from my haircut to the class that i should attend. He is an international entrepreuneur in the field of automotive and is in foreign countries most of the time but he've always been abusive and autoritary to me and i've always been afraid to do what I liked because of his possible reaction. He made me gave up many of my projects to concentrate only on my studies and as the time passed I got more and more depressed with the life that I was living. I wasn't enthusiastic anymore and people around me noticed it. I've finally developed a strong hate against him. And even if i know that it's bad it helped me overcome the fear of his authority and abuse. At that time I still didn't know what to do with my life as If i stopped school to get a 9-5 job he would kick me out of the house or worst. But things began to change when I found out about internet Marketing. I learned the basics of SEO and still am at this time and I've launched my own company at the same time thanks to informations that i found on this very forum and my personal knowledge. Litterally from nothing financiarly and i don't now where it's going to lead me but my objective through this company is simply to generate enough passive income to start investing in niche marketing for real and i'm damn determinated to go for it. Hopefully I will have enough saving in about 6 - 8 months to leave my home and find a small appartment anywhere. It's either that or living in the street as i actually don't give a ... and won't be able to handle my father no more. So this is a short extract of my life. Internet Marketing and some of you guys journey's gave my confidence and determination again to stop whining about my life and deception and actually start taking action. And most of all when I think about it if i haven't found this forum with all of it's usefull topics, peoples sharing their knowledges, motivation and journey, i would still be an insecure kid bowing down to his father. So for that I must thank you all. I'm a strong beliver in Karma and i'm convinced that for all the good you do their is a form of compesation and as soon as i'll have enough knowledge and a more stable situation i will give back to this community. This is my promise to you guys. Thanks you for reading all that (If you did ^^) And let's work smart. Ryan.
