    So, I have been searching for my path for close to a year now. I started with affiliate marketing and moved to wholesaling then to trying to make money with online games. I am honestly stuck and each day my head begins to hurt even worse. I still have the fire and passion but it seems like every avenue I approach, I fail. Either a scam, lowlife, or Conman. I can't find a decent person to work with! Please, will someone genuine push me in a good direction? I work hard, 24/7 if I have to, I just need a nudge in the correct path or maybe someone to guide. This would be extremely helpful as I don't currently have a 9-5. I am on my own and trying to get by any means necessary! Fellow BHW members, please share. All info is greatly appreciated!

    Do you have any skills?

    For example can you create Apps, can you design websites, do SEO etc?

    You could look into the PPD + Youtube method. You don't specifically need any real skill for this and a lot of other people started out with it and there are plenty of journey threads and tips here for inspiration. If you're going to be doing this method, you'll have to invest in youtube views, likes etc.., You could give it a try with zero investment and then scale it up by investing. Look here for guides/journeys etc., Good luck!

    I just read a short eBook today explaining the situation very clearly. The problem is that most IMers don't stick to one thing and keep jumping through hoops looking at the next shiny thing instead of sticking to what they learned and expanding what they already know. I'm having trouble with my bank right now, but PayPal is still the key, so that's what I focus on.

    I found out something annoying with Amazon Associates today. Turns out that between April-May of last year I made $40 with commission sales and Amazon never sent a payment. It was disappointing, but sometimes that's how it is.

    The best thing to do in my opinion would be to get a 9-5 job that will translate into IM, perhaps sales or software development. At least then you'll have some stable income coming your way and won't be as stressed out about making money.

    Also I would recommend getting your mind away from working with someone else - this won't work right off the bat. You first need to find out how you can make money by yourself first.

    Have a right mindset to begin with. Until you learn how to overcome the failures and the associated hurt, and discard those negative self-images, you cannot go a long distance in the right direction in life. You will act like the person who embraces a tree hard, and then yells 24x7 that the tree isn't leaving you! Take hold of your situation wisely, because only you can help yourself the best in that field. For example if you think this advice is positive for you but you don't act on it, then what's the use of listening to such an advice. The moment you act, you will find ways... at least you'll be on the right track towards a better future, and without the heavy bondage.

    Now, at this new level, you'll begin finding better people, even mentors who will love to show you the light! Only you can push your own self stronger in the right direction. Once you begin doing that, you will find people who will give you right advices, help you begin what you want, help you on the way, and help you get there, eventually!:) Give it appropriate time to work, don't rush without doing the proper head-work first -- now.

    Step 1 In A Nutshell: begin building the right mindset first...

    Thank you everyone for the replies. It feels good to have people actually care and chime in. I have the correct mindset as I was prior USMC, had many labor jobs, sold insurance, etc... I work hard, I can do the work, it is more of, "what should I do?". I guess I am stuck in the what the hell do I do with my life phase... IM is extremely interesting to me but what course of IM do I want to pursue? That's the question. It feels like each time I try something, it doesn't work out. I have some skills but I am not so good with SEO and website creating. I will keep plugging away... Thank you everyone, I appreciate it!

    I would buy a domain and redirect an affiliate offer with it, and create a video promoting that domain.
    Or maybe try this:
