    I've been AFK for a bit as I was pursuing a real job. 50/50 in an authority, category killer domain name
    with an investor.

    The problem is, I brought in a $10k/mo ad deal

    And he didn't like what I was doing (mostly because I was trained in black hat style)

    He wanted to do everything 100% white hat.. which would mean we would have no profits

    If we stuck to my strategy we would be doing $50k/month soon

    Instead, now we are losing money.

    I decided to part ways with him, and I leave in 60 days.

    I can't wait to be back among the BHW community. I'm looking forward to all the good times.

    Sorry to hear about your unsuccessful endeavour, but glad to see that you're back on track and on top of the situation. Glad to have you back full-time mate.

    Are you going to compete with him once you have exited?

    Earning that $50K per month for yourself would be a very satisfying way of showing him you were right :)

    I own a category killer domain myself in that same niche. One word .org

    So I'm able to compete effectively against him and I'll be doing so :)

    And can't wait to get back to SEO/blackhatworld stuff

    I've had many great nights

    Good to hear you can walk away from something less profitable & carry out something more lucrative. Compete with him and bank hard buddy.

    But silly me you where actually away trying to close a big "real job" an "authority killer" well excuse me for my wild assumptions my brain just runs away with me at times... Smh

    Wanted to say welcome back even if I haven't been active either. Sounds like you've been having fun.

    Welcome back :) BH always seems so much more fun than WH anyway. I've never been able to fathom why some people have a problem making money via methods that are deemed a certain colour.

    It's not the colour of your marketing that matters - it's the colour of the money in your bank account :)

    Man, that sucks. I have had 2 unsuccessful business endeavors in my life and both of them taught me so much. Hope you'll beat your ex business partner :)

    I owe all my success to you mate; the most inspiring BHW thread seller on BHW

    Keep up the good work, and keep innovating

    Because I'll be two steps behind
