    Just hit some troubling times financially so here I am.

    This journey is about getting as much done as possible before I find myself on the streets of NYC so the process of bouncing back is easier and quicker.

    I'm a 20 year old Male.


    What I plan to achieve in the next 33 days:
    -A lot of programming courses online (I know basic programming like classes and common sorting algorithms but I'd like to expand my abilities)
    -Grow my Youtube channel with 4600 subscribers


    I'll update my daily progress here.

    I love all you guys. Wish me luck!

    I don't think the programming courses are a good use of your time unless you are using them to find immediate work. I guess you don't have a full-time job, so when you are homeless, you can go to the library and study programming for free and it keeps you off the street, you get a nice warm relaxing place to chill and use the toilet and brush your teeth and stuff. Right now I would be making videos for youtube and getting them online because you might not have access to solid internet for uploading. Wifi can be spotty and if it cuts out you might have to restart your whole upload. I would also be looking for ways to do something nice for my friends or relatives so they will help me out with a place to stay and shower and such.

    Of course, if you don't want to be homeless, you can get manual labor if your body can handle it, but if you are cool with trying out being homeless you have a good city and good time of year to give it a shot in and see how you do. It's not that bad if it's a temporary thing and you can maintain your confidence that you will land back on your feet soon.

    Maybe contact a coder who help you make something that help you reach your goal faster before 30 days.
    In this way, you maybe get some time to get a job or do some freelancing while this happens or focus 10000% at this if your solid.
    But instead of homeless then get a job while you can? xd..

    Actually, Marketing and knowing way around Stuffs is Gold, most BHW top earners don't even know how to code, only a few of them might know how to code.

    Good luck Op

    Someone had to make scrapebox and Jarvee. I'd say these are the people at the top because we rely on there services the most.

    Yes, providing SaaS is also a sustainable business model for programming.
    Of course, you also need to know the needs for marketers.

    Find a job until you can move on to making money online, it isn't a overnight success

    I think YT resumes the upload from where it got interrupted provided you don't change the filename or location.
    Also I've heard that python is the hottest language to learn right now cos of rise in machine learning opportunities. Its also the easiest to get started.

    My opinion is you need to find a job and stay in a home and do after job programming, youtube and other stuff
