Afternoon folks, Long time lurker showing up to work here I've been doing IM/online stuff for years with varying degrees of success. I've had periods where I've made a lot of money, periods where I've done ok, and periods where I'm not making (almost) any money. My problem is simply that I'm very prone to boredom and procrastination, which in turn keeps me from being consistent with things in all walks of life. This is my attempt at achieving a modest but stable income of 2500 EUR by the end of the year I can use as a foundation for bigger things. Bear in mind at the moment my living expenses can be covered with around 500 USD (that includes my rent, all my bills, food, coffee, an office, and a nice gym), so that's a lot of extra money to re-invest. This will change in a few months, but even so, things won't go above the 1000 USD/month mark. At the moment, my only real source of income is quite unstable and requires a lot of manual work. Given how easy it would be to saturate, I'll have to be deliberately vague when talking about it. Suffice it to say it involves buying certain digital assets for peanuts and re-selling them for a pretty penny and it involves Bitcoin (and is partially subject to its volatility). I intend to achieve my goal by initially continuing work on my existing venture, with special interest in automating the more tedious bits (I'm a software developer, after all!) and diversifying it as much as possible to minimize the inherent risks involved. I will also start spending some time working on other small projects/methods (10 USD/day+) to supplement and provide further stability to my income. I expect I'll escalate 1-3 of these methods/projects and drop the rest, depending on performance and workload. I intend to only work on setting up one of these at a time so as not to spread myself too thin. The projects, methods, or at least the general ideas of what I'll be tackling are: Adult Websites: likely some variant on the usual content re-upload workflow that seems so popular on BHW. I'm particularly interested in adding a social media component and an e-Mail list to this. Freelancing: I'm a software developer by trade specializing on Web apps (backend) and automating things (many a bot has been brought to life by this pair of hands) and I also make a pretty decent sysadmin. I'll be setting up a nice portfolio-style Website on my namesake domain and I'll start looking for prospective clients soon after that. This is a venture I'll be running with a long-time friend. PPI/PPD: I'm going to be setting up and testing a variety of PPI/PPD methods I've come up with after doing some research. I don't expect too much money from this in principle, but I've come up with a way to escalate this quite massively with some programming magic to make up for that. I have plenty of other ideas I'd like to play with, but I'll only be starting with those. I'll be updating daily to keep myself accountable and I'll try to be as transparent as possible without revealing too much. I hope you'll join me on this little, hopefully successful journey. Anyhow, I've kept you long enough. I hope I haven't been too much of a bore. Time for me to get back to work P.S. This is my second attempt at a journey thread with the same goal. Didn't get very far the first time around. I'd post a link to the original thread for the curious, but I'm too new on BHW and the system won't let me. You can find it through my profile, though.
