    Hey guys.
    This journey should be exciting as it sounds.

    Short context about me. (some depressing sh*t)
    I'm 24 yr old broke guy without any education(tried two universities but wasn't able to keep up due to lack of motivation and skills). Living literally in a basement with some wild rats (not lonely though).
    I tried to find the job I knew I hate which could get some money (programming). I got a social scholarship for courses, and now I'm working and hate the work and getting paid 500 $ month which is not enough for me to even pay the bills.
    I could get more working at McDonald's or smth, but I'm feeling too fancy to take these jobs.
    I had some dreams, was working as a music producer for 10 years at home as a teenager, which led me to work with the top 20 electronic producers in the world (days were good), but after that, I got rejected and didn't felt any purpose in creating music anymore.

    So what this journey will be about:

    Internet marketing feels pretty fun for me. I've fascinated how many people manage to make money on the internet in so many and exciting ways. But after trying(preparing to try) to do something similar like those successful people I get caught in FOBO(fear of missing out), shiny object syndrome, procrastination and etc. (however you call this stuff). Also, I'm kinda tired of finding the best niche, best idea, best keywords, best opportunity to earn money, most fulfilling way to make money, finding passion, etc, etc.
    So I decided to make an affiliate niche website as bad as I can with an intention to waste 1 hour per day writing articles and expecting to earn 0$ after 1 year of work. I'm doing this because my mind always tries to find THE BEST AND ONLY option, which keeps me bouncing from one thing to another, and nothing works for me anyway, so why bother making these crazy goals. My goal is just to do something, but not commit to a result. 0 dollars is perfectly fine for me as long as that keeps me focused on one thing and makes me moving forward.

    What do I have:
    laptop
    internet connection
    hosting (expires in 2 months)
    a niche in mind

    Next steps:
    call mom and ask money for a domain and SSL
    pick some domain name

    My commitments:
    to spend 1 hour doing something for blog development(writing articles, building the website)
    keep track of hours spent

    My Educational Resources and guides:
    BHW Journeys
    Income School on youtube

    I believe through those years there will be tons of much more exciting and ONE TIME OPPORTUNITY things that I could do, but usually, it just leads to a distraction. So I will try to focus just on one thing for a year.

    I don't know how often people usually update journeys (I'm pretty new here), but I will try to keep track of my work daily and publish whenever I can.

    This journey should be bad, and you won't learn a ton there obviously. I will do as bad as I can. But most importantly I will try to keep moving forward in baby steps and stick to one thing. Cheers

    Have big goals. Do not give up. Something inside you still wants to success, I guarantee

    (I don't fully understand the title, you mean X money instead of zero?)

    Sometimes finding the best of the very best is a problem in itself. It's good that you're at least taking action. If I'm honest, I was just like you, I wouldn't do anything because I was so focused on creating something so perfect I lost several years achieving absolutely nothing. While you write, read the money-making and white-hat sections of this forum, you'll find some gems to get you started.

    I think most of us have had this feeling that nothing works :(

    As I can see from your text you are native English speaking? Perhaps try to write content for others also to finance your journey :)

    Good luck to you OP, there are so many methods if you put time and effort into it, buying methods or replicate others is often not the way to succeed!

    It's nice to see how BHW members provide their service to their situation. Nothing more and nothing less than the best internet forum for me.

    After all, I wish you the best of luck. Being in crisis is something that affects us all from small and large men and women. I advise you to read different books and above all keep a positive attitude.

    Although I cannot support you financially, you will have all my support and I know you will leave this partner: D Good luck. If you need items one day, maybe not with perfect English, you would have to correct it, but with good research / SEO Write me, it will be a pleasure to help you

    seo is constant iteration and analyze till you can rank. if you do it like 'idc attribute' then you wont learn much

    Good luck OP! I find myself going around in that same circle of awesomeness :) something's gotta give

    unless you're gonna to be a doctor, lawyer, or something of the sort, degrees are overrated/complete waste of time. I'm a Linux Systems Architect, worked for Fortune 500, and have 0 degrees. nowadays, employers want to see experience, and not some fluffy unicorns with no real-world skills.

    this post hits home. I also can't help you financially but I'll share some tips if you tell me what do you need help with. I've built around 50 sites fom schratch and also made $0 from most of them so I'm very experienced in making $0 a month.
    All I got was the experience of fixing all the issues the sites had.

    You need to believe in yourself and your work ethos if you want this to work. Starting out like you expect to fail will not do you any favors. Good luck!
