    Hey guys, so I started a journey a while back for instagram, I got sidetracked for a while working on certain things, and other things I had going on in my personal life. This journey however is here to stay! :D

    So for this journey I'm seeking financial independence however I can. To achieve this I need to get to $500 / month. I'm 17 so this is a big goal of mine. To achieve this I'm going to be selling niche targeted dropshipped products off of my apparel website. I will be advertising the site and it's products through the couple social media accounts I have grown. I'm also going to be creating 10 more accounts to grow in different niches. I'm also going to be paying for shoutouts through different accounts I've contacted and worked out deals on posts for. Eventually I will be getting into Reddit and FB ads, depending on when I achieve my first bit of success. I will also be growing accounts to sell here on BHW, I'll be purchasing JR VIP once I allocate the money to do so :) There will be more that I'll be doing but you get where I'm going with all of this. MONEY.
    Now that that's out of the way and you know my plan of action, let's see where I am as of now :)

    Day 1 12/19
    Drop Shipping Website - Been redesigning the site for a couple weeks, looks very nice and professional in my opinion and I'm happy with the look. HOWEVER I have a bug in the checkout cart page where the user can't select their state in the billing details easily. My goal for today is to fix this problem so customers can have a better shopping experience :) Also going to be adding more products as I only have a few hoodies and accessories.

    Social Media Accounts - As of right now here are my social media accounts :D
    Organized by followers / following

    Weed Account: 5451 / 6004
    Sneakers Account: 4106 / 6581
    Hot Girls Account: 3644 / 6540
    Apparel Site Brand: 867 / 1830

    Amazon Niche Site: I also have a nice and clean amazon affiliate site, although I only have 3000 words of content on it right now. It was created about 2 weeks ago so I'm still waiting for the pages to be indexed. If anyone knows how to speed this up let me know! I am busy with my dropshipping site so I may not work on this as much, LOOKING FOR A WRITER for this site, let me know if you're interested. Needs to be SEO optimized and high quality.

    Summary: Starting off small, but I believe I have a good foundation and a decent plan of action. I think I am on the right track to being financially independent! Thank you for reading, feel free to comment and converse or whatever. Ask questions, all that good stuff. Stay safe everyone and keep working towards your goals! :D

    Not doing much backlinking as of right now. I'm focusing on on page optimization and quality content. I'll be making YouTube videos for each best of page, and sharing on social media. I believe this will be enough to rank because most of my keywords are very low competition. :)

    Update
    Day 3 12/21
    Drop Shipping Website - Good news! Got the theme updated and the bug is now fixed for the checkout. I have a few things with shipping options for different products to sort out. I also still need to add a few more products to my store to fill out the hoodies, tank tops and accessories sections :)

    Social Media Accounts - As of right now here are my social media accounts. Been unfollowing for the past 2 days, going to keep unfollowing today and will start back following once my following = followers :D I also plan to setup 5 more accounts to run on my vps in followliker.

    Organized by followers / following

    Weed Account: 5552 / 5867
    Sneakers Account: 4108 / 5980
    Hot Girls Account: 3623 / 6211
    Apparel Site Brand: 867 / 1446

    Amazon Niche Site: No work has been done on the site since my first post. Although today I plan on writing another 1000 word article to go with the other 2 articles I currently have.

    Summary: Got the dropshipping site bug resolved, users can now checkout and select their state without issue. Will be adding more products today as well as continue to find niche targeted accounts to promote my products. Been unfollowing on my social media accounts, will start following again soon. I plan to setup 5 more niche accounts today in followliker on my vpn. No further progress on my amazon niche site although I plan to write another 1000 word article today.

    Thank you all for reading and encouraging me on my journey to financial independence! :D

    Good luck with your journey! You seem to have things planned up. I like that you elaborated most of the things.
    Which payment gateway are you using ?
