    My name is Sam.
    I'd like to start out by saying that I have been a lurker for about a month now, and finally decided to make an account. After trying multiple things posted here, and losing motivation, or switching to something else, I have decided to make this thread for motivation purposes, and in the hope that one of you people will hold me accountable and spam me if I stop posting, or give up on something. Anyway, with that out of the way, I'd like to also clear up my reasons for doing this.
    1.While my dad is a Lawyer (Mainly specializes in immigration), he runs his own business and therefor does not really earn that much extra money. So I WILL have to pay for my own college in about 5 years, and I prefer not to graduate with dept.
    2. Being the person that I am, have a strong desire to live out some of my childhood in the luxury of fios internet, more than decent computer, and enough money to thoroughly enjoy my teenage years.
    1. Thou shall not do anything that my parents shall need to be involved in.
    2. Thou shall make back all the money thou spends within 6 months.
    3. Thou shall not stop doing something until it fails or succedes.
    4. Thou will get that girls phone number before she moves on to High School and I stay at middle school for another year.
    5. Thou will have a 1000% percent increase in earnings by the end of the summer.
    6. Thou will post everyday.
    7. Thou will enjoy still enjoy thou summer.
    8. Thou will stop giving you creeps information you can use to track me down :p
    9. Thou has enough rules to follow
    10. Thou will do better than my brother Mike (Dropped out of high school and drives a bmw...)<-------Another person I hope doesn't use this forum
    Anyway, looking forward to posting, see you guys tommorow.

    I thought most lawyers were well compensated, especially immigration lawyers?

    5. Thou will have a 1000% percent increase in earnings by the end of the summer - What are you earning right now?

    They generally are, but there are a lot of expenses involved in running a one person law firm, and the type of clients that my dad usually servers aren't able to compensate him that well. At this time, I've earned a penny from adfly, it shouldn't be too hard to reach goal 5.

    I don't know the specifics, but since after he dropped out of highschool, he was hired by Kendle (multi-country research company) as a network specialist. Don't know much else tbh.

    Someone I know is going to be doing a jv with me, and he will be definitly browsing this forum, so I will be deleting some of the more personal stuff from above so it doesn't fall into the wrong hands. I'll also post how the day goes in about 7 hours.

    Sam you're a BRO. I wish I had started when I was your age. I am 18 now so I am not that old. I just started making the money after a year of trying to find what suits me. My advice is do what you like and you will succeed. Also you are a kid, the number one thing for you right now is enjoying it.

    Thanks for the advice, haven't decided so far, looking into offering seo to local businesses and also thinking of doing ppd on youtube. My plans will probably change within a couple of weeks though. Planning on occasionally buying up a couple domains to resell on sites like flippa.

    You are 13...13!!! Man I want you to succeed so bad it's not even funny. Please don't give up! Make that money dude because it's people like you that make me hopeful for the younger generation.

    I honestly thought my generation would be the last one with any brains or motivation to do anything at all in life. I don't mind be proven wrong.

    I'll be following this for sure.

    Best of luck!

    Good luck man, I started when I was around 16, now I'm 18 and though it took some time to find what my niche was, it was totally worth it. Find something you love doing and have success in, and stick to it.
    Also don't blow all your money once you've made it, it's hard but lol it's good to have self-restraint

    Thanks for the great advice. If (When) I make money, I'll reinvest, or blow it all on random stuff. Hoping I have the strength to do the first option.
