    I'm going to start doing this every week, and I really hope our big-time members get involved. I hope some of the other Jr Execs and Execs say something. I think it can motivate the newbies.

    Lets hear what you accomplished this week.

    My week was: finished my last exam of the semester, completing 3rd year of computer science studies, expanded my guest posting outreach and somehow ended up getting a paid contributor intern position at a national news company (DA 81). I also got almost 50% positive responses on an outreach campaign (which I wrote a thread about). I also opened up another BST to fill my spare time with $60/hour coding freelancing, and was offered a full time 1-year contract at a $29 billion 10-year old software company with less than 50 employees here in Toronto. I also talked to someone who expanded their SEO agency's advertising methods to close out at over $80k in revenue via some old school IM tactics in the past month (and they are probably reading this). I also picked up a book called "Rocket Fuel" recommended by meathead1234. Talked to some great people this week.

    BRAG AWAY. Lets hear what you accomplished in the past 7 days!

    I bukaked eighteen year old blonde in the McDo parking. This happened on Monday so I figured out this achievement will cover entire week and didn't bother much after that. Spent the rest of the week playing games, shopping,enjoying with my family and trolling BHW.

    We're touching 90k now.. with still a day and a half of April left ;) That 6 figure month is just around the corner.. It's so close now I can smell it. My week and month has been pretty insane, we're growing at an alarming rate, but we're embracing every minute of it.

    The past week has been spent getting a new staff member (and irl friend) trained to do outreach (BHW member Raconteur) for our SerpLogic clients. He moved out here to join the team around 2 weeks ago, we have a new office on the resort I live on. Exciting times!

    From Last Friday to this one has been large for me. When I got back from London, I moved ~30 miles from my previous home to a new one. Luckily, I had a few meetings out this way (3 ending with checks from recurring clientele). I pushed myself harder this week for developing content for most of my sites (50+) that I'm trying to keep in the rankings. I saw one site go from the bottom of page 5 to the middle of page 1. Oddly enough, I saw a few members posting about being penalized or pushed further down, but the opposite happened to my projects.

    That being said, very interesting week.

    Cleared the shore line of about 40 feet or so of the far side of our property to get a better view from the deck on the back of the house. Did it without cutting any fingers or hands off which is quite the accomplishment for me.

    Here is the before:

    Now morning coffee on the deck when you look to the north looks like this:

    Not a revenue generator per se and certainly not IM but the retirement property is pretty close to complete as to projects which is awfully nice.

    Not bad mate, but you are not quite in Charlie Floates league yet. He wanked 789 times over illegal shit, signed on the dole and sex offenders too.

    My business requires that I render tons of videos at the highest possible quality. I just finished buying all the pieces to my new machine that should take rendering a simple 3 minute video @ 1080p about 2 hours, to hopefully way less time. I will be rendering in 4k from now on so I hope to keep render times lower than an hour per Youtube video. I sell uploads for $20 and get anywhere from 10-20 inquires a day so if I can render quicker and produce more content, then I can maximize my overall daily profit. My goal is to reach $100 every day (starting).
    I do have a question though, if I am getting paid through Paypal on a donation bases, not on a business account, when do I have to report my earnings on my taxes (U.S)
    Also would it be more beneficial to create a business Paypal account? What are the pros and cons?

    Well all these posts really have me down in the dumps. All I did was watch my followlikers crash a bunch of times, get frustrated and turn them off for a couple days, and fix a few computers and earn about $200. Pretty bad week particularly in light of all the stuff you guys got done.

    This should motivate me, but now I'll just be depressed over my lack of productivity. Oh yeah, I left out that I gambled away a bunch of money I couldn't afford to lose, so I guess I should get back to work and earn that back now. :)

    As far as I am concerned though SkyrocketSEO had the best week out of us all from what I read.
