So yeah from the title you can see that I am a college student. I am studying somewhere in the United States and I am a computer science major looking for a minor in economics and/or marketing. My family is great but I hate trying to count on them, I want to be independent and be able to afford my own tuition, housing, food and anything else that I need. Here is my journey and I hope that from this I can keep track of my progress, get help, help the BHW community, and perhaps even motivate a peer to do something similar. How much do I know about IM? Right now I am 18 but I started all this shenanigans when I was around the age of 14. I read a lot, especially on the journeys of BHW, and my brother helped me get started as he was the one who showed me everything. Although I have had some success I felt like I have also had a lot of failures which makes it that much better. I earned some money and then lost it all and then earned some back. I have done things in CPC, PPC, SEO, Youtube and Ecommerce although none of them have had huge successes so far. What am I going to do? Throughout the summer I saved up over $3000 and decided to invest in some sites that might take me to the next level. This was suppose to be a safety net in case something happens to me, however I believe that without risking something you will not get anything back. Here is what I have in terms of sites: Ecommerce Site: I acquired an ecommerce site for $175 that runs off of Joomla and Wordpress. Good design and everything but the thing is that the site is stagnant and I have to apply for new suppliers and dropshippers. In short, this is still a work in progress. Seo Site: Got the site for $600, the site sells seo packages in small groups. I use fiverr and other freelancers to give the workload to in order to earn a decent profit. 2 Affiliate Sites: Purchase the two affiliate sites for a total of $1200, they both have good rankings for their respective keywords on Google. They also both show really good potential. Total spent: ~$2000 Will keep a daily record of money earned through these sites and what I will be doing each night. Hopefully I can update this thread once a day and answer as many questions as I can.
