    Hey everyone,

    Im kinda new at this and im really at a time in my life where I need to take a leap and change some things to either become successful or fall on my ass and become the average 9-5 worker. I am 19, currently in debt about to lose my job and my license. I need to change something that im doing to improve my life. I have read quite a few CB + Youtube journeys and im going to first take a shot at that. If i can make this work im going to dive into a few other ideas I have in this giant ass head of mine.

    My Goal is to learn something new everyday and improve the way I do things. My primary goal is not to make money but instead to change the way I think and the way I work. Money will just be the fruits of my labor.

    Anyway today is my first day jumping into this and I have already found 5 niches im going to create videos around, started researching keywords for each (I suck at keyword research, Anyone wanna throw me some tips?) and wrote a script for each. Im going to make the videos either today or tomorrow after i finish finding decent keywords for each niche.

    Also one problem im foreseeing is running into issues with supplying my videos with views/backlinks. Anyone wanna toss me a bone and let me in on a few ways to make a couple dollars a day to start getting things rolling?

    DAY 2


    So I didn't get much done at all today. Ended up getting called into work for an extra shift I couldnt pass up. I deliver food and made about 65$ today in tips. Also got asked to work tomorrow for the super bowl.

    My plans for the rest of the night are to double and triple check my scripts to make sure they are as perfect as can be.

    Again didnt get much done today. Work had me stay late due to the superbowl. Plan on sitting down tomorrow and recording my 5 videos and get them all uploaded and ready to hopefull start producing some sales.

    DAY 4

    Alright so today i got a pretty decent amount done. Made videos for all 5 niches and also set up a fiverr gig to hopefully start brining in a little bit of side cash to get things rolling

    Hey bro, first post from someone else in your journey. Clickbank can be really good if you know how to pre-sell the products you are promoting. BTW are you using some sort of external tracking to test the visitors behavior for each of your videos?

    Anyway, congrats on going on with it.

    You have the right mindset, buddy.
    I can't comment on the technical aspects of what you're doing, but as with anything - give it some time, put in the work and don't expect instant results.

    I'd say good luck, but it wouldn't really change anything.

    Whatsup guys this is day 6. I have been dealing with a large amount of bullshit concerning my license so things have kinda been at a stand still. Waiting on some funds to clear up and in the mean time im gonna take a crack at getting a decent amount of niches lined up to start making videos for

    Probably will be the hardest journey you ever undertake (to do it daily).

    I agree with it. Its hard to make myself sit down and work. But that is part of the journey. Change my work ethic for the better.

    Kinlee doesn't worry about boosting views & she's a big earner here on Youtube. That approach is changing anyway, since the days of boosting views has gone on forever. Build backlinks and social signals instead, get REAL people to our product. Less views = people thinking they found a rare golden ticket.
