    I will either apply for a job at McDonalds or make more than $42 a day off IM/business opportunities. Why $42/day? That's the average a fast food employee makes per day given they work on average 25 hours per week. I will keep a tally for every day that I don't exceed $42 in earnings and if I get to 30 tallys before June 1st, then I'm applying to a job at McDonalds. It's that simple. Gotta take some responsibility for your income and stop relying off mommy and daddy at some point.

    Day 1- 3/27/17
    Current Ventures:

    -a hat company selling unique hats
    -a social media marketing company

    Earnings: $27

    -$17= sold a hat on my hat website
    -$10= monthly earnings from my marketing company

    Plan for Tomorrow:
    -start setting up IG CPA
    -follow up with hat wholesale leads

    TALLY TOTAL: 1

    Good luck on your journey but there's other jobs besides McDonalds or fast food, like retail stores, car washes, warehouses, etc. I worked in the food industry when I was younger and never again.

    Anyway, hopefully you meet your goal and don't have to worry about it.

    Good goals and good luck in your journey.

    I have a great suggestion for you.

    Go and work in MacDonals (or any other job).
    And then take that $42 everyday and outsource your website's design, content, SEO to the experts.
    By 60 days you would have earned (and invested) $2520.

    In that way, you might have a better chance of quitting your fast food job by end of 60 days.
    If you can't, then make it 90 days. What's the hurry?

    I already have $5000 in capital just saved up, having money to work with is not the problem. I don't know what I can effectively invest it in though. Infinite amount of things out there you can invest $5000 into and get like $40 back. Much fewer things you can invest in and get $7k or $10k back. My marketing company site and my hat site all look top notch (multiple people have said this).

    Why 60 days? Because I know I can do it in 60 days. Also, my gap year ends so I'll have to go to school this September 2017. If I don't go to school (which is my plan) my parents are going to financially cut me off and not pay for any housing. Better to financially cut myself off early and be able to support myself than to get my ass kicked financially by my parents when I tell them I'm not going to school.

    Day 2- 3/28/17
    Current Ventures:

    -a hat company selling unique hats
    -a social media marketing company

    Earnings: $10

    -$10= monthly earnings from my marketing company

    Summary of Today
    Went to a dentist appointment on 3 hours of sleep at 2PM. Went shopping for shipping supplies and food and shit. Got back to my apartment at 6:40PM. Tired as fuck and worn out b/c of low sleep. Trying to reintroduce structure/following my schedule. Went to take a 1.5 hour "nap" at 12AM which turn out to be my bedtime (hence me not posting yesterday). Overall, not very productive day.

    Plan for Tomorrow:
    -start setting up IG CPA
    -follow up with hat wholesale leads
    -work on shopify dropshipping

    TALLY TOTAL: 2

    Day 3- 3/29/17
    Current Ventures:

    -a hat company selling unique hats
    -a social media marketing company
    -(NEW) shopify dropshipping store

    Earnings: $10

    -$10= monthly earnings from my marketing company

    Summary of Today
    Woke up at 12PM. Discovered this crazy dropshipping method via Shopify, got really excited, and decided to get into it with one of my niches. Have my store almost 80% set up. Ran a list of misc errands/tasks. Shipped a hat order to France. Worked out for the first time in 4 weeks (had a nasty flu and pneumonia) and feel great. Fucked around for 2 hours on the computer when I got home.

    Making me audit my day and doing so publicly knowing that other people are watching is actually helping me out a lot in being more conscious the time I spend doing dumb shit online. Thank you guys for your eyeballs and your support.

    Big Items for Tomorrow:
    -run facebook ads for shopify dropshipping store, hopefully get a first sale
    -follow up with hat wholesale leads
    -plan out my social media posts for the next week

    TALLY TOTAL: 3

    I honestly dont know why people get into the IG game, get tons of their accounts banned and start complaining here with IG DOESNT WORK,

    when I fact they could hammer 100s of long tail youtube videos out and score some easy commissions... for FREE.
