    This journey will be a bit different. I'm not starting from scratch at all, been doing IM full time for 8 months now and have saw some great progress. But, I am ready to take it to the next level and earn $15k/month. This kind of money will put me in the top 1% of earners in Canada. Pretty crazy to think about, but I it is a reachable goal.

    Some guys will share their earnings, but I won't be sharing the direct numbers. Instead I'll be talking about what I have been up to. Looking for something that will keep me accountable. At the end of each month I will give a rough estimate of the earnings.

    Stuff I have going for me right now:
    - Debt free
    - Living at home
    - No 'real' job
    - Decent income established
    - Assets built with traffic/leads established

    I dropped out of college last year because I realized that staying in the classroom and earning a degree will only net me a $40k/yr salary at entry level and a fair bit of debt. I'm already close to that level of earnings.

    With my assets that I have built over the last 8 months hitting an upswing over the last 3 months, I expect to sail past that by Summer of this year. Jobs in Canada just aren't that great and most Canadians with goals, ambition and a degree/experience in a well paid field normally bolt for the US as soon as they can.

    Assets:
    1. SEO/Web Design Site. 100k+ targeted emails scraped + around 500k websites scraped. I am looking for around $6k a month from this.

    2. Affiliate sites. Earning me a decent income with 2 sites sitting on page 2 for some great keywords. Currently working on getting them to the front page. $7k a month is definitely doable.

    3. Ecommerce site. The site is already built out, and it will be going live soon. Just need to setup a few Instagram accounts and paid ads on Facebook. This venture I expect the least out of due to the fact that I don't know much about Instagram and I'm not great with paid ads. So we'll see. Hoping for $2k/month.

    I feel that I've done a pretty good job at building things up, now it's just time to connect the dots and have the money pour in. I will try to update once a week.

    I am hoping to achieve the goal by the end of 2017. 11 months left.

    Awesome journey!

    What tool do you use to send "promo" emails?

    I tried Close.io, it seems to work pretty well.

    Thanks a lot.

    I actually hit a snag with emailing and I am currently trying to find something that works. Will probably go with an email server from a reputable seller.

    They were scraped using a bot I had made for me.

    At the start yes just because it's cheaper. But towards the end I fully plan on buying American made products and white labelling them. Great for marketing and feels better overall.

    Update -
    Small update, ordered a couple articles for my aff sites, and received them. Haven't posted them yet, but I will.

    Currently looking for an email server for my emails & landing page. Might make a JV thread, not sure yet.

    Eccomerce site is at a stand still right now. It will be the last piece of the puzzle to take flight because it takes costs the most $$ to get it started.

    Going to be a long journey, so it will seem slow at times.

    Good luck reaching your goal of being a top 1% earner in Canada. How did you come up with your projections for all your projects? Do you have any profits/revenues yet from each of these projects?

    Also Canadian. You guys are saying that he is aiming high but with the exchange rate, 15k Canadian is worth about $40USD :)

    Good luck OP.

    I fully expect to be paying taxes. Haven't visited a tax adviser yet so not sure how much it will be.

    Web design agency is from numbers I pulled in a JV that fell through as well as some earlier success. Affiliate sites are because my rankings for good keywords are going up and I have good data on stuff like EPC/CTR, etc which allows me to make solid earning projections. Eccomerce site because 2k/month is only 30 sales I believe. 1 per day, shouldn't be too hard to achieve.

    LOL, right now, yes. But the goal is actually 15k USD per month. Should have clarified :p

    Main reason for this post is I want to let anyone who reads journey threads, but not JV threads that I am looking for an emailing marketer to help out. You can check it out here - https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/looking-for-expert-in-email-marketing.915104/

    Everything is still in progress. Nothing to huge to announce.

    Just wondering about your Ecommerce site - 2k/month on 30 sales would mean the average product would have to gross/net $66.67 (depending if you are looking for revenue or profit number) - in addition you said you were going to do paid ads, have you factored those costs into your equation?

    Sounds like your Web design agency & Affiliate sites have good potential!

    Good luck fellow Canadian! Keep it up and keep us updated. Question, are your earnings going directly into your personal account, or are you planning on opening a company and putting the money in there?
