    Day 1 – 19/01/2016

    I have been a member here for a week, which is nearly 2% of the year and have achieved nothing thus far.

    The problem is not the forums – It’s the me.


    This is my problem, because although there is lorry loads of fantastic information up here I have been too scared to properly implement anything. I have fooled myself into thinking that reading all of the information here is the equivalent to WORKING, It’s not.


    I have read through dozens and dozens of ideas, any of which I could have implemented, none of which I did.


    That is going to stop right now, at 12:55pm on the 19[SUP]th[/SUP] of January 2016.


    We are going to be taking a Journey, it will be a long treacherous Journey with many, many pitfalls along the way. Many challenges that may seem insurmountable and enough dead ends to make us think that we are trapped. But we will find our way around, find our way over and find our way through.



    Honesty time… “The reason so many of my plans have failed in the past is because there has been no (or barely any) risk from me, true I do have a few boxes of sunglasses in the shed I never managed to sell, and some business cards for a leaflet distribution company I never followed up on.. and maybe even a few more “investments” laying around. But the total risk of everything over the past 6 or so years since I left school is about £800 ($1100). That’s about 30p ($0.43) a day… so not a lot.

    Unfortunately, I like a lot of idiots do when they think they’re smart, turned to gambling. It didn’t work. More on that in another post.”



    This plan will be different. Firstly, it will be our last ever plan. We are betting the farm this time boys!


    We’re getting Loans from Parents, Banks, In Law’s, Friends and other family. If I fuck it up this time, I FUCK IT UP.


    I will try to update this as often as I can.

    So join me, and let’s make billions.


    Task 1.
    Let’s go get a domain.


    Money In: £0 ($0)

    Money Out: £0 ($0)

    So you have a history of failure, a gambling problem and you are not risking any of you own money but taking out loans from family and friends?
    I think you need to stop now and reassess your plan and maybe scale back. If you have a shed full of products from previous ventures then sell those first before getting further into debt.

    History of failure? Kinda, I suppose. I would say a history of giving up.

    Gambling Problem? No sir. I'm not giving you that one. I was an idiotic 18 year old who thought he could beat the bookies. I learned my lesson.

    I will pay everyone back, if this fails, I will get a crappy job but I will pay everyone back. Not sure if you are trying to insinuate something here.

    I decided to go with a membership site, so I could get some stable monthly income.

    I just don't think you should be risking other peoples money at this stage.
    Why not get a crappy job to start then save up your seed money?

    Ok ok, I relent. You guys make a valid point.

    We'll start with a bank loan.

    Why not a Billion? It's a solid goal IMO

    Why not a trillion? Solid goal too. Loan sharks are great for additional cash and don't ask a lot of questions other than your address.

    Seriously though, statistically most businesses fail, why not build/risk your own money first? Do you have a solid business plan? Have a proven method of generating income? Know how you're going to scale? Having a plan and then risking other peoples' money is only a good idea when your ass isn't on the line if it turns sour, or your family relationships aren't leveraged.

    Maybe I was high or drunk when I wrote this post. Or perhaps I had watched too many of ET's motivational YT vids.

    I sincerely apologies for being a dick to all those who wanted to help.

    I'm taking this IM thing serious now, and I have an Idea that I think will work.

    Many thanks,
