    Oh man this was so LAMEEEE!!! So I was on my vacation (Working for a startup for the past 4 months) and then I get an email that says the company is no more. It sucks because I had everything so planned out and wanted to move to a new apartment as well, etc The ppl were great, what we were doing was awesome but our bosses couldn't secure an investment for us to continue.

    It made me realize that I MUST find a way to monetize on my own. I've been kicking ass as far as SEO goes (Which is my only main skill) and now I just can't rely on other companies to support myself, my dreams and my family.

    At the same time I was working on a site on my own using PBNs so I want to continue that. It just sucks to go out and do job search especially as a high level SEO but I know that this time (Previous times as well), I brought this on myself (By not taking control of my financial future). Its sucks - rrrrr - I'm a super positive person but realistic as well. I just hate that feeling of no-income you know (Yes I will get EI and Yes it seems like I'll get one more paycheck - not sure but I think so) however, the feeling of not being in control and it just SUCKS! The thing is I'm out here in Japan and the last two / 5 times I was here, I wasn't working and it SUCKED! This time I was so happy and relived that I have a cool decent paying job to go back to and the wife and I were actually enjoying it. Myself especially but just a couple days before the vacation came to an end . . . especially for me after this news.

    The only issue I have with SEO is your skills are only as good if someone needs them. We were getting tremendous organic growth (All thanks to me) month after month but to no avail cuz we couldn't secure an investment . . .

    Has someone been through this situation and then completely turned their life around?

    I need some success stories guys (From this forum) and if you know anyone looking for a high level seo (Someone with supplement and Pharma experience).

    I need to change my life. I'm done with this losing jobs every couple years nonsense (Crappy company, no investor, etc). Anyone here offers coaching? I have the skills to rank sites (White hat / Grey) but I need to roll with some hustlers who are making a positive change in their lives and of their loved ones using SEO.

    This time, I refuse to put my goals (Music production , Youtube Channel, 20 site awesome PBN, etc) on the sidelines . . . I need some solutions.

    Thanks for letting me share . . . Please inspire me. Thx!

    Sounds shitty. But the only way is up! And it sounds like you know what you're doing... so what are you doing right now? Get started on all of those things you're talking about doing!

    "but I need to roll with some hustlers who are making a positive change in their lives and of their loved ones using SEO."

    This sounds like an excuse to delay. Problem is, no one wants to roll with you until you are a hustler. Why should they? What sage advice would you get from them, anyways? Sounds like you already know what you need to do. And it sounds like you already know SEO? Just do it! Good luck!

    Why is everyone acting like a dick? The guy appears to have hit a pivital changing point. This is a positive thing.

    People like you three are the reason new people don't like entering this forum. Sorry if somebody with under 100 posts are 'n00bs' but did you not have to start from the bottom or did Mummy and Daddy give you a head start?

    In truth I bet it was Daddys Credit Card or you had to work god damn long hours, learning the trade, testing, testing and more testing to become what you three are today. So please enlighten us you Internet Marketing geniuses, how much do you earn. Give this guy a Solid Method and some help to get somewhere, don't just take the pure **** out of him.

    Bet you all feel really good being capable of cyber bullying somebody about him losing his job, regardless of whether this OP is true or not. Congratulations, you won the internet today guys.

    I am very sorry VeeGee to have offended you.

    I would like very much to hear more about how you made a company go under. Please tell me your story and I will listen with great interest.

    The only offensive part to me is the fact that you can't read and understand that my name is actually spelt VeeGeeN.
    So I guess you aren't a content writer, clearly.

    I've also never claimed to work in SEO, nor have I taken the Michael out of somebody for losing their job. Regardless of whether in your eyes SEO works or not, the guy clearly had a job. Would you like it if you lost everything you had?
    Just think there is somebody out there buying fake likes, twitter campaigns etc for Presidential campaigns, racists yet they still keep a job. So would you take the **** out of that person who is probably earning 10x what Alrightythan is/was? Simply put, no. Why? Because that guy will have a job for life regardless of whether said candidate wins or loses.

    **Not even going to bother reading or replying to your response. Got better things to do then spending my time arguing with somebody on this forum.

    Can you 301 or link to another project of your own and convert the traffic? Would your bosses be willing to give you the company instead of let it just die? Do you have the skill set to make an amazing business plan and attempt to get investors on your own (probably for a fraction of what they were originally seeking)? What niche was this in?

    I'm sorry Mr VeeGeeN for misspelling your name.

    Can you tell poor archon10 how you put this on your resume? "Best SEO ever. Built PBNs and bought backlinks. Company went under."

    I need to know these things in case I too lose all of my fiverr earnings.

    Thanks for your reply Jared. 100% appreciate it. What I meant was it would cool to connect with ppl who are more 'business' minded. As far as technical SEO goes, I can kill the game but would be nice to meet ppl who are balancing both and working for themselves so to speak. Thanks a lot for your reply again :)

    I'm contacting everyone I know and looking for another SEO related position. I'm shutting down or changing my goals this time. NO WAY! Thx!

    No. Just got our site on the first page for the term 'Canadian Pharmacy' on Google.com. A 40 thou search volume KW in the ever so competitive pharma niche. Plus a few others that converted.

    the stuff I learnt about SEO here at BHW not many people know all about i had to leave my city shift to another city I thought it would be hard too but getting a job is not that difficult if you have good skills there is good demand to it only problem was pay that was given bit lesser then I used to get so compromise a bit and start your own stuff

    You're new here so I'll explain this to you:

    No one here is acting. We are genuine dicks. Dollars to donuts if you said this shit to us irl we'd do the same thing: laugh in your face, mock you and then go about our business.

    Is it a shitty thing to do? Depends on who you ask. But I can tell you one thing: 0 fucks will be given.
