    Okay.
    FUCK THIS SHIT!

    Enough of all the reasons, enough of all the procrastination, enough of delaying tactics.

    This is my very first journey post here on BHW so I want this to be inspiring for me and also to the readers out there.

    Part 1: About Me
    A quick summary of my life. If you don't want to know about me, no problem haha just skip to the next part.

    I am a graduate of BS Computer Engineering and yeah I know that is a good achievement. I graduated last February so now the pressure is hitting me from parents, friends, former classmates and so on.

    But the problem is I know deep inside me that I don't want to work my ass off to 8 hours of work just to get less than $500 a month.

    I need to prove something for my relatives and for myself also that I can do this shit that is why I am doing this post to stay motivated.

    So many job offerings and opportunities for me, but I refused them. I don't know, maybe because some of the job offerings are not the job I want to do for a long time. I hate to do things that I don't enjoy.

    Part 2: My Inspiration
    The average starting salary of a Computer Engineer here in my country is about $400 a month. So what I need is to make a stable income of at least $400 a month for starters.

    I want to dive to Website Designing track. I want to do websites for clients, for businesses. As of now, I want to do the easiest way I know, using Wordpress.

    Based on what I read from other posts here on BHW, the average price for a simple website is $250-$300. So I will be pricing my websites around that range.

    Also, I want to add about the video I watched from Nas Daily (great content creator), the secret to his success is following deadlines. And to be honest, I don't make deadlines for myself. And I think this is the reason for my laziness, procrastination and everything else I hate of myself.

    BUT THIS WILL BE CHANGING STARTING NOW.
    I AM CLAIMING IT. hahahaha too bold.

    Part 3: Current Status
    -I already bought my domain and hosting.
    -$1.32 in my PayPal (hahahaha I'm f*cked)
    -No money on my bank account
    -I have a lot of time I think

    Part 4: The Plan
    I want you all to know that my plan is still not the solid plan (I think). This might change on the way because I will consider and hearing out advice and suggestions from you people (another reason why I posted here :D).

    September 1st week:
    -finish my own website (using a free theme)
    -complete pages (home, about me, services, contact me)
    -blog page (I am still skeptical about this because making a blog is not my forte, you can see from my english haha)

    September 2nd week:
    -make 1 website for portfolio
    September 3rd week:
    -make two more websites for portfolio (I think I can do this faster than before)
    September 4th week:
    -find at least 30 businesses without website
    -cold email business owners
    -hopefully, land 1 client
    -check @Festinger vault for premium themes after a client pays %50 DP

    October:
    -collect 60-100 emails for businesses without websites
    -land at least 2 clients ($250 each x 2 = $500)

    November:
    -collect another 100 emails
    -land 3 or 4 clients ($250 x 4 = $1000)

    December:
    -repeat process from previous month (tentative, depends on the Updates I will be making)


    Part 5: What I want to learn
    -good converting email templates for cold email
    -profitable business types
    I want to learn and learn and learn. I know that my knowledge is still narrow, but I want to expand it. Always on a consistent basis.



    Message to readers:
    Okay so far, I tried to make things as simple as possible and I don't want to overthink about things. I will trust the process and of course with the help of you all haha.

    The plan I have written above is for the stable income, I want to do the blogging + affiliate marketing for the passive income for the future.

    I am open to suggestions, opinions, comments, motivation and all kinds of feedbacks.

    I will fail in some, I know, but as per Gary Vaynerchuck said, "love the process, don't be afraid of failures, fuck it"

    FUCK THIS SHIT. I want to update here at least thrice a week. I will try to update every day. I'll try.

    And yeah. Again FUCK THIS SHIT. I WANT FREEDOM. hahahahaha

    Good luck and remain focused.
    According to the salary mentioned I guess you live in a somewhat third world country.
    I would recommend checking your local online yellow pages and collecting business contacts without websites from there.
    You should be able to find at least 200-300 there for starters.
    Once again, best of luck and follow those deadlines. Also, make sure you reward yourself when you complete something before the deadline.
    You'll train yourself for the following deadlines.

    Getting 1-2 clients from 100 cold emails would be tough but I am not the expert so, let's see how this goes! Good Luck OP!

    You’re a fellow Indian, my advice: Recently my relative paid ₹50,000 ($800?) for a simple website with one special feature where clients can enter some specific code and they can get some relevant info. Nothing complex. There were 100s of pitches.

    What made him win: He was willing to come to the office, explain everything, work together closely with the owner and also take follow ups. Everything done in 1 week.

    So don’t be afraid to meet people. Infact, in email/call emphasis on your willingness to meet in person. This will increase the confidence of both parties. I’ll follow your journey. All the best!

    All the best OP, looks like you have a solid plan. As you said "Enough of all the reasons, enough of all the procrastination, enough of delaying tactics."

    Lets do this!

    I see that you have just started your journey, best of luck! Would you be planning to add extended support for the sites you'd be selling? I think that's one good way to keep revenue flowing. :) Following your journey.

    I'm from the Philippines if you are wondering hehe.
    I like the thought of rewarding myself. I think it is from psychology "positive reinforcements". (please confirm these geniuses out there :D)

    thanks for the recommendation, definitely checkin it.

    Do you mean hiring VAs on the road or outsourcing the work to make it automated?
    If yes, then yes (I feel like I am rapping here :D)

    If no, please elaborate.





    And for all the readers out there, I feel like I am a sponge right now, I want to absorb every information that I can gather here and use what are golds.
    So keep the feedback coming and rolling.

    Back to Hustling!!!!!

    Thank you pals :D

    Yeah, gonna train my self to follow it. Thanks

    That is our major enemy. Not family, not others, not any other type of shit, BUT ourselves' laziness. WE need to conquer it hahaha

    Yeah I am prepared for the tough job. So WE need to learn a good converting email template and. (I used "WE" because we both need learning it)

    Yeah. Rock on. I always wanted to make a presentation in front of people. So I think this will be fun (and hard at the same time, but I love challenges :D)

    Lezgow!!!

    Yeah dude. FTS!
