    Ladies and Gents!

    Thanks for taking a look at my gallery, it will be pretty basic to start with, and then I will be expanding into something that even I don't know! I was introduced into the IM half a year ago, and have been amazed at all the journeys and stories of friends that I have who have secretly been doing this for a while! One of my buds is actually on path to make 7 figures this year, and he is only 21 years old!




    I am a 20 year old business major at a 4-year university and I am on path to have a decent 8-5 job or internship when I graduate, which I am happy about! However, I want to have the capabilities of traveling, having fun on the weekends, purchasing things that I normally wouldn't be able to, and just setting up another source of income for when I am graduated! And, the journey to find that begins! I currently am content writing for a couple of websites, each paying me VERY well, however I do not know how long that will last! I got my ‘gig' January, and have made around $2,500 while studying full-time, a college athlete, and involved in several other things (NOT BAD HUH?!?)




    So now that I am starting to get more revenue in, I realize..... "Dang, these guys are making so much money off the work that they are paying me... why can't I be on the other side of this?" So now it is my turn to learn, try, fail, and try again until I can successfully monetize something in some way!
    ____________________________________________




    My First Plan!!!!


    I have basic knowledge of HTML and CSS, however I really need to start learning more! I am thinking about working on web design and get customers which pay me monthly to update their sites, and if I can form them first for them that is even better.


    After learning some coding and website development through my friends and some online free things, I plan to make my own website which specializes in a variety of things that intrigue small business owners around my hometown, and in general, to want to purchase my products to better their business!


    I really do like the concept of helping businesses become more professional, better websites to obtain higher visitors, and successful SEO so that their website is actually seen! I really don't have THAT much experience with SEO, however I do have the knowledge needed to actually rank something up, which I have done before just as a test.
    _____________________________________________________________________________________________

    I really have an interest in Micro-Niche sites, however I really don't know where or how to get started! I know that these sites require a little work in them, some SEO skill, and a few content writings in order to rank it up on google.. from there just monetize from Adsense or CA or something like that.......? I have no clue... But Micro-Site making also interests me and after I become a little more advanced with the whole micro stuff! Just the concept of testing your SEO skills and ranking it best you can and making like 10 or so bucks per site passive income intrigues me a lot, and you can do this with plenty of niches and it just depends how much work you put into it there is no stopping how many sites you can make! (Yeah, I'm getting ahead of myself!)
    _____________________________________________________________________________________________

    So I guess if you have any advice for me about anything, or what you think is something that I should get into and learn, I am all ears! Thanks for all your support and help peeps I really appreciate it!

    Change your font color. Also you have the basic understanding of a niche site down.

    You are obviously well written, I would spend time writing for your own website with adsense instead of for other people. Really, really good quality content with social media buttons will practically spread itself. Just make sure that the info you are writing has real value to the reader (i.e. why is the John Deer snowblower better than the Black and Decker?). Answer specific questions or be really entertaining. Then compile that info into an ebook and sell it on Amazon. Two bangs for your buck, hardly any coding required.

    Strange, though, that you say.. no summer job.. half the people here are working twice as hard as anyone at a job. I'm just saying, you're not avoiding work.

    for niche site, check out nichepursuit website. (google it). Spencer got provided a case study on the whole niche site project.

    That should be good for you to learn
