    This is my BHW journal that I will use for encouragement. I probably won't be providing any specific details on what I'll be promoting or how I'll be doing it, but I will scratch the surface for you. The same ideas, tools, methods are shared here on this forum, search hard enough and you'll find a gold mine.

    Currently
    You could call this an underdog story because as of right now I have $30 sitting in the bank and I was terminated from both of my jobs last month, my last pay check will arrive here on the first. Truth be known I was kind of tired of doing what I was doing, but it paid the bills.

    The home I live in right now is pretty bad and should probably be condemned. People that live in third world countries might live in the same condition and yes I live in America. It's so bad that we're going to relocate to a different state next month with the help of another family member who is going with my parents and I. There are no opportunities for anyone in my area.

    What I know
    Anyways I've grown quite a good friendship with a guy that actively posts on here and I've seen him do good for himself. So good that I told him my daily goal and he himself thinks its peanuts, but a good starting point. To make a long story short we've made a friendship of trust, he's asked me for favors doing odd work for him online through the years, like graphics, updating sites and anything that he was too busy to do. He's shown me first hand how he makes his money, how he runs his programs, drive in traffic, etc. So he's shared his stories of trials, errors and success. From that I've gained a degree of information just for him alone.

    This is honestly the best thing that I've ever done because it's shown me the ins and outs of making money with IM. I guess you could call it an internship. I clearly already know what to do and if I don't I can ask him.

    If you're new to marketing I would suggest that you offer any services that you can provide to someone that has already climbed the mountain. You may have to work for free for 6 months to a year, with them throwing you a bone here or there, but the on hand skills that you earn can't even be compared as the knowledge you gain from doing something like that.

    We met on a forum like this one. He posted in the help wanted section needing website work done, I helped him, he took me under his wing while I did work for him. I would even encourage people to post in the JV section "or the appropriate area" and even message people that you might already know and ask them to take you under their wing. Granted you'll have to prove yourself worthy, but when you have the potential of making a lot of money and living comfortable, it's worth it.

    A good friend that has been down this road already
    Give em Hell Attitude

    Plan of Action
    Content lock any type of content which I think people will spend their time filling out offers or giving up their information for. The same methods which are shared on BHW so you won't even have to search too hard.

    I'll update everyone at the end of the day Monday with a money update. So tag along for my long journey. Thank you for reading.

    im from a third world country everything is cheap here except the services. Internet costs me $50/month = 2mb speed and keeps dropping sometimes for a week seriously fuck my isp i have no other choice thats the best in my country.

    dont lose hope man many people have made money on the internet there is no reason why you wont succeed with all the good info's here on bhw. just keep learning and dont give up

    good luck

    Good luck! Also, if the house provides you with shelter - be happy. In some third world countries, a lot of people don't have Homes. My house is nice but it's no mansion. Used to be a old log cabin home. Then got extended. I'm happy. It's not shitty but it provides shelter for me.

    My one friend still has an antenna he has to raise up and down. He can't complain because it offers him shelter. He lives in Texas. I live in PA. I guess it's common in Texas, I don't know.

    Just be happy with what you got! :p
    Good luck with the adventure.

    Good luck. One thing I dont was so comfortable about was the part where you said something like you might work for free for 6 months and maybe a year, just to gain knowledge. Well that isn't true. No one here is going to work free, or are they? If anyone do that please I have jobs for you!

    Here's an update that I promised. I constructed two very small tests, and put together 1 site and 3 small blogs. I uploaded two Youtube videos that lead to the site and got 2 conversions from that and one conversion from Facebook which lead to one of the blogs. The niche was related to music and the other celebrities. Scaled appropriately and fine tuned I will achieve my goal. As expected I probably won't see the results that I want to see until at least a week or two, so I'm not downing myself.

    I've also discovered a niche selling a product that looks to have very little competition and the top competitors have less than attractive LP's. Thanks to my friend for the discovery, he passed it onto me because he had too much on his plate already. I used HTTrack to rip their website and all the paid content was downloaded with it. So the work that needs to be done with that project is simple as editing the files, throwing together a WP site and doing some SEO. I could most certainly meet my daily goal just selling one of the products per day, which seems to be easy.

    Thank you, best of luck to you as well.

    They may be the slowest, but they always finish first.

    Excellent! I'll use your tool when I start my venture with my potential niche. I'll PM you soon.

    Some people would, others probably not.. But with my case he paid me a lot on different occasions. Free or cheap labor for experience that you will never gain normally is worth it if you can fit it into your schedule.

    Also what I didn't mention is the possibilities of getting a % of what a website earns that you helped them put together. It takes a lot of trust with both parties either way.

    So just throwing work at someone that just wants to learn will never work out. You have to show them how to SEO, put together WP, show them plugins, show them how your tools work all the while incorporating it into what ever project you're doing.

    Thank you all for the well wishes, I hope to update everyone in 2 days, this thread is a big motivator.

    When you have other people contributing in your household it makes it easier. It really depends on your bills, rent, w/e.
