    Greetings, Black Hat World community & Co.

    As the title says, I'm planning to earn my first million euros by March 23, 2023. It's going to be a long journey as you can already tell. I made a decision to create this thread in order to keep myself motivated, as well as to motivate my fellow members of the community who barely believe that this is actually possible.

    Introduction part - I'm currently 23 years old, I live alone in an apartment that I pay monthly rent for, I've got a side income that helps me to pay the rent off, as well as to invest in e-commerce. Been gathering knowledge, winning and losing since 2014 and finally, I've decided to put all my time and effort into reaching my goal. Starting from January 1 to this moment I've lost most of my friends due to being busy and simply for being the type of individual that I am. I can't tell if that's jealousy at some point or they simply don't think I'm capable of achieving my dreams. During the time of my friendship with those people, I've offered them many ways on how to make money but sooner or later they stopped showing any interest and just kept on living their lives by going back to 9to5, smoking weed, drinking alcohol and just wasting their time in general. I used to be that guy back when I was 16 years old but I learned from my mistakes. Regardless, I'll do whatever it takes to achieve the main goal by the date I've set.


    What I've got in my artillery:
    • Good knowledge of drop-shipping and social media marketing. I update myself every single day by following several legitimate sources + I used to work for a company in which I had to learn graphic designing and marketing. That's going to help me a lot.
    • I currently run two Instagram pages around the product's category I'll be working with. One page has 2000 followers, the other one is about to hit 1000. I will be using both of these pages for my journey. (No worries about the recent Instagram updates, I've figured my way out of the "prison".)
    • Already made a partnership with 4 different companies that work in the same category, they obviously don't know about each other and I've planned it out so they don't even get a chance to find out.
    • I came up with a unique name for the brand, designed the graphics for my website and social media in general + bought a domain.
    • Thanks to a few people I personally know and who I have helped in the past - I got myself a free traffic method that actually works pretty well.

    Current plan:
    • Regarding Instagram - use one of the accounts as the main brand's account while the other one will be completely niched down and used as the "promoter" account for my brand.
    • Finish the website and remove the password page.
    • Add Facebook Pixel + Google Analytics for information gathering.
    • Start using the free traffic method. (Nothing to do with Instagram, Twitter, etc.)
    • Once I reach 2000eur/month, I'll start scaling the business with paid ads but till then - only free traffic.

    Of course, the whole setup and reaching out to these companies, setting up a new and verified business PayPal, etc. took me about 2 weeks. I don't plan to dive too deep into details. Mostly, I'll be covering the main things.

    For some people, this whole concept might look pretty basic and not even mentioning the "becoming a millionaire by 2023" part. Why I'm so confident is because I know how this business model works and I know myself. If I've promised myself something - I'll get it, regardless. And I hope that you all believe in yourselves as much as I do in myself. I will be posting updates every single day.


    If you got any questions or criticism to deliver, feel free to drop it down below.

    Let the journey to million euros by March 23, 2023, begin.

    Thank you both.

    Thank you. Aside from all the motivation, losing everyone around me, etc. there are some more important factors that leave me without a choice but to make this whole idea happen.
    Regarding the date, first of all - that's my birthday. Second - it will definitely sound stupid but these numbers have been all around me my whole life. Regardless, just everywhere, whatever I do. And I believe in numbers.

    Where are you going to monitor your income? Are you generating it via sales of goods, services, advertising, redirects, etc.? Wherever you will be generating your income throughout this venture, can you post screenshots of your beginning income, then throughout your journey can you update the screenshots to show various growth? Also, apart from BHW, are you keeping any type of log of what you are doing, how in/effective it is, adjustments made, forecasts, and the likes?

    Loving those questions, thank you for showing interest.

    More data, more money - Google Analytics. Also, I'm already writing down social media platform statistics in Excel. What goes to daily log (adjustments, forecasts, etc.) and daily to-do list - already working on that via Word, as well. For a second I thought I should use my notebook instead of the laptop but I'll keep it simple when it comes to this part.

    Regarding the income itself, I'll be selling a physical product for both genders. And about the screenshots of growth - absolutely. Once I'm taking off, I'll keep this thread updated.


    Definitely, will be hard. Thank you very much.


    I appreciate your support, thank you.

    Hey there

    Best of luck for your goal, I hope you achieve it

    Just my 2 cents : do not keep yourself isolated during this whole journey (and no, keeping a BHW thread does not count as social interaction). Force yourself to get out from time to time, and try to make some friends along the way. Not negative friends that will drag you down, but not necessarily friends that will get into IM as well or whatever : just people that you enjoy being with and can share stuff and fun without them putting you down. IMO that's very important if you want to keep up in the long term (yes, you may be able to work for months maybe one or 2 years without friends but no more) and when you reach your million goal, you will be more happy to share your success with some good friends than alone

    Why would he sell if it was giving him a good source of money?

    A quick update, November 8, 2019:

    Woke up pretty early this morning, the sun is up and the weather is simply beautiful outside.

    • After doing research, I completely switched up the website theme to a different one, also premium. Why: it's more optimized, works faster, smoother and it's simply cleaner.
    • Found a few great .liquid codes that I'll be adding up in a moment. (Scrolling effect on phone, tablet and desktop / cart icon / footer image with text overlay)
    • Tested my brand's promoter account and got action-blocked after liking 425 posts and leaving 15 comments.

    Current situation with my Instagram accounts:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Promoter account has been re-activated since November 4/5 while the brand's account is currently inactive since I'm waiting for the product's photos to come in. I want to keep the brand's account as clean as possible with pure product photos, no copy/paste lifestyle photos from other profiles.

    money cannot make you a friend, what is the point living in big house but alone?
    you don’t have to advice your friends and tell them how to become a successful rich person, just stay around your friends and your family that’s it that’s what a real friend or family member needs nothing more.

    Sharing some advice I found here on BHW. Sometimes all you need is a change of perspective

    Either way I look forward to joining you in the millionaire club. We will touch our glasses together drinking $1000 champagne. More women than we can count on our private yacht. The hardest decision we will have to make in the day will be whether to buy the red ferrari or the yellow one. We will look back on BHW with fond memories

    How to make £1 million:
    - Salary £50k x 20 years
    - 5,000 people buy a £200 product
    - 2,000 people buy a £500 product
    - 10,000 people buy a £100 product
    - 5000 people pay £17 / mo for 12 months
    - 2000 people pay £42 / mo for 12 months
    - 500 people pay £167 per month for 12 months
    Good luck mate

    Thank you very much! There are a few people who I know for less than a year and we hang out sometimes. I also plan to start training again which might lead to me getting known with some new people from the boxing gym.

    I appreciate the support, guys.

    I absolutely agree with you, you don't have to pressure people to become successful if they don't want to. You can simply remain a good friendship and that's already enough. But the issue was that they were seeking ways to get out of "slavery" and I was trying to provide them with "how-to" and where to start by looking at their interests and hobbies. Worthless. But it's alright, I'm not here to cry about that, it's in the past.

    Thank you for your kind words, stepdub.

    Brought up some positive emotions, real talk. Let's do it then.
