The Man: I?m a 20-year-old dude from Canada and I?ve known about Internet Marketing for about 5 years now, without ever taking any serious action and giving up far too soon when I do take action. I?m sure plenty of you reading this know the feeling all too well. This time I am not giving up early, I won?t be quitting, and I am putting everything I got into this. I will succeed. Not through bursts of emotion or motivation but through relentless day after day, month after month hardcore effort. This journey post will track my progress day by day and will show what the long term effects of focused and applied time, effort, and energy look like. The Goal: My goal is to hit $100/day in six months from today: June 17, 2015. From $0/day right now. The Process: The plan is build out several sites one by one in different niches with varied marketing/monetization plans at a pace of roughly 1 site every 1-2/month(s). Each site will receive a vast amount of attention and will continue to be supported indefinitely after their creation. Here are the websites, traffic generation, and monetization ideas so far (I will be using coded website names to protect the exact identity of my websites and niches, thanks to kinlee for the idea in her journey thread): Site #1: Chromosphere Hobby niche site targeting buying keywords monetized by affiliate links. I?ll be working on this website first. Site #2: Cosmic Ray Adult niche site targeting traffic brought in from tumblr, video sites, and picture sites monetized by affiliate links. I?ll get into the juicy details for each site in my first update post, so stay tuned! The Why: I?ve been coasting through life on autopilot up until a few weeks ago, trying to avoid anything that required any effort, trying to find the easy way out of everything. I finally got sick and fed up with the same boring life day after day. I?ve stopped waiting for the world to fall into my lap. I?m responsible for my success and I am finally taking charge. This journey is how I?m documenting my path from the very bottom to the high peaks of success. If nothing else this journey will prove my resolve and determination. The Motivation: Motivation is something I?ve always struggled with and I?m sure plenty of others have as well. So I?ll be posting how I?m keeping myself motivated and going strong in every update. Starting here: Books: Right now I am reading ?The Willpower Instinct? by Kelly McGonigal. I?m on to chapter three and so far this book has been amazing. It really shows how you can use small amount of willpower to build up a routine that actually helps you improve your willpower over time. So far I?ve been able to wake up early consistently (one of my worst bad habits ? nothing used to kill a day like waking up at noon?), stick to a full workout schedule, and most importantly work on Internet Marketing every single day. Now to keep these new habits up! Quotes: I can?t imagine a quote that is more relevant to starting Internet Marketing: "Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm" -Winston Churchill PS - Had some pictures ready to go for the website code names but I guess my account is too green (understandable) so I'll post those in updates as soon as I can!
