So, I've left sixth form college at 18 (UK) since I've never really had the motivation to revise and work hard enough to get the grades that I need. I haven't enjoyed school since the age of about 12, so leaving felt like the right thing to do even though I haven't got any AS/A Levels. Now because I don't have a "real" job as my friends like to call it, I'm working my ass off doing freelance article writing to get the funding to buy SEO services, including backlinks, for my ClickBank promotion. I'm going to be buying up good EMD domains and operating on well-researched keywords in order to obtain traffic, and in turn ClickBank conversions through product/service reviews posted on each website. I've had some success with them in the past, making a total of $250 over my first 3 months of operation. I believe that I can scale this very effectively if things go as well as they did for my beginnings with CB. I feel like a scumbag every day, despite how many hours I'm working. I feel like, probably due to my upbringing, that I should be working a full time "real job" or being in college. I'm doing neither of the two, because I want to pursue IM as I think it's potentially immensely profitable. I know that no matter what they say, my parents have serious doubts about my capability to earn money on the internet. They probably think that I'm a lazy dropout that can't be bothered to work. As odd as it sounds, that's one of my main motivators. I want to prove them wrong. Hopefully in a years time I'll show them this thread and prove them wrong. I'll be posting all my significant updates and earnings here for the foreseeable future. My first goal is $100 a day, and I'm currently earning around $150 per week with freelancing. Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I hope you gain some knowledge, inspiration and/or motivation through my upcoming updates.
