    Well guys, this is going to be the most honest post I think I've ever posted on a forum...

    A bit of my BG: I'm 23, have a 4 year old beautiful boy who is my world, and just recently parted ways with his mother (after 6 long years)... She's cheated on me multiple times, and I've just overall been taken advantage of ever since I had a kid, it's like I became such a wuss, and put everyone before myself... Poor excuse I guess, but I use to be that 'jerk' that would tell a girl to shut the eff up and make me a sandwich and bring me a cold beer while they were at it. Not anymore, I guess that's not a bad thing, but it's not good either.

    Anyways, by rock bottom I mean, I gave up everything for her including my job, so she could be successful at her job (Real Estate) because daycare was entirely way too expensive where we lived, about $700/mo... I only found a part time minimum wage crappy job because I never finished school and began to hate the idea of how a piece of paper determines what position I should hold in a company. Thanks, but no thanks. Now don't get me wrong, I'm willing to learn and bust my rear, but I don't want the price that comes with it.

    Enough of that... Currently I've been unemployed since Nov 2012, have two traffic tickets that have actually now been classified as warrants due to me not being able to pay them. I have a car payment that I've been struggling my rear off to pay because I come from a very poor family and have never received any hand outs in any given situation. Luckily I have a great best friend who is allowing me to stay with him rent free and even helping me look for a job(s). However, I've had zero luck this far, living in Texas... Seems like it's tough anywhere though.

    Sorry for the sob story, let me get to the point. I see wonderful success stories.. IE $1000/day, $30000/mo.. If I could even begin to make 1/4 of either of those, it would be a life changer. I joined this site through googling some random bull and it is probably the most intriguing and mind boggling thing I've ever came across. I've been using the computer since I was about 10 years old, so roughly 13 years now, and when I say computer, I mean internet. Aka Porn. :) Absolutely. Anyways, so for 13 years instead of realizing these great opportunities that you wonderful people have made great success with, I jerked around. Some of you dudes could literally wipe your rear with $100 and flush it without it hurting one bit. Me? I would literally take a dive in the sewage pipes hunting that Ben Frank down.

    Anyways, what I want from this post is not a hand-out (unless you're willing of course, because who doesn't love free money:)), but more so the easiest and least costing way to generate even $25-$100/day. I know what you're going to say, "take action and quit being a whiner." Yes I completely agree, however, after reading all of this, I'm not an expert at any of it and I don't want to dive into a pool without any water, if that makes sense. I'm basically asking for a coach to help me make money, someone to hold my hand. I know, what a joke. But after reading all of these posts and coming onto this forum... I wished I would've found you guys about 6 months ago so I would've had time to try these methods and put forth effort. But now, I just need to do something very VERY quickly. And I want it done right, and I know that will not happen without the help of some of you or all of you even.

    You can call me what you want and say what you need. If you feel the need to laugh, you can do that too... Even I question my stupidity and why I've let one woman completely destroy me. All in all, I just want to see my son, and any sort of money to his mother will allow me to do so.

    Thanks again for your time, and I hope someone out there will see where I'm coming from.

    Good day to you all, and may you have great success the rest of this year.

    - O

    Well I feel you pain. It's not easy at all. There is no room for pussies in this online game. You've really got to stay focused and work at it daily. First of let me say, fuck that bitch and don't think twice about it. Seriously, if you've got your mind wrapped up in her ass, your never going to make a dime online. I'm speaking from experience. Things change daily marketing online, but some things say constant. I've been marketing online for oh about 12 years now I guess full time. I've had months I've made $18k and I've had months I've made $300. It's just a big ass game. I'm not sure what your intrest are or what your working on right now or your goals. You can make good money online but you have to take an idea and make it your own with adding your own twist to it, then just rape the shit out of it to make money. I'll not laugh or call you any names because I've sat in your shoes your in right now.

    I have a saying I live by most of the time. I say it to my self most mornings while making my coffee.. it's goes like.. If nothing changes, nothing changes. If I do the same thing I've been doing I will get the same results I've been getting. So, if your happy with what your getting then you continue to do the same thing you've been doing. If your not happy, then your going to have to change what your doing or how your doing it.

    Some helpful advice.. I've gone through the kid thing and not seeing mine as well and yes, it does suck very bad. I drank a lot through my deal. I didn't work as much as I should have. I wish I would have worked more an drank less, but moving on. Make some short goals and get those accomplished then move to the next.

    Feel free to PM me and I'll give you my email if you want to keep in touch. I'm not saying that I've got the answer for you, but I do understand and will help in any manner that is doable. Best of luck to you.

    Hey buddy,
    I've went through something similar. Only difference was I was raising her child when she started cheating on me. Meh, just one of those things.
    I'm just a noob myself in the IM game. But I've been working my butt off on a few methods that I found here. Nothing major, but a few bucks here and there.
    Best thing about it is I'm learning. And already picking up new and exciting ways to add twists to the methods posted here.

    If you want, you can add me on skype. Name's the same as my forum name. I can't be your coach, but I can be someone you can hit up when you want to talk it out.

    I'm pretty inexperienced myself so I can't offer any real advice other than check out what SmileAtMyWins posted. You seem genuine and ready to bust your ass. Best of luck to you man.

    BHW has a heart. That is awesome. No sarcastic posts. Awesome

    OP:
    Long post is long but I get the idea. I read 2/3rds of it. Here is the best advise I can give you. There is no real "easy" money online but you can make something out of nothing to start you just need determination and some clever skills.

    Check out fiverr to pick up some writing gigs (you seem to be ok with writing) and work your way up. With that cash you can then rent a server (between 6-10$ a month usually first month is a dollar) and even get a domain (google some promotion codes to get them cheaper with whatever registrar you choose)

    If you read, read, read (especially here) and reinvest the money you make you will be laughing this time next year. It DOES take much to start a snowball but once it starts rolling you can sit back and collect the earnings.

    What you want and desire is possible if you have the time and the mindset

    If you join Fiverr (as recommended above) send me a PM with the article writing gig, I will send you a couple orders to start you going.

    Sounds alot like my story. I can't offer any real advice about making it online but I know a good bit about offline stuff if you don't mind hard work.
    Remember one thing. the best revenge is success. Don't let that heifer have the satisfaction of thinking she has you by the nads. Hate to see a fellow Texan or anyone have to deal with crap.

    Good luck

    I was in school not knowing what I wanted to do, just feeling pressured by family to get a degree and a 9to5. Uh no, I will Work hard on what I like, and guess what... a year later it worked out for me and now i'm making decent money, just about as much as my girl and she has a 4yr degree. It took me around 3 months to hit $15 a day... 6 months later... around $60-$100 a day it depends but sometimes it's $100+ so I just say in between.

    This game is not as hard as people make it to be. I think methods are over analyzed and therefore the effort put into them goes in the wrong direction ...crash and burn they go. At first, I was confused on exactly what I wanted to do.. so I started doing fiver gigs and trying to sell zazzle shirts. Read "ilovechucktaylors" thread like 8 times and checked it everyday for updates. After I grasped the concept I started youtube + CPA. I was busting my ass at first uploading 20-30 videos a day making $5-$10 but they would just get flagged.. yes making accounts manually as well since I practically had $0 to invest. Started reading more and more using that good ol' search button. Put a twist on my videos and now it's pretty much autopilot. I work around 4-6 hours a day and still maintain what I have. I will go full force again but for right now it's just smooth sailing. Good luck OP hope this post gave you some motivation.

    You are all awesome, and I'm so excited to sit here and read these replies.

    I've never felt so relieved and so at ease from an online forum. But BHW has proved to me not to be some regular forum, but it is a community where people care and they want to help people and even though I've spent countless hours reading and reading over the past week (15-20 hours/day at least) to try and get the perfect idea with my own twist, I can say that I've learned a lot about the community and it has changed my whole outlook on what really needs to be done.

    I'm very thankful for every one of your responses and I look forward to taking the action to begin making some sort of cash and quickly. Also, I want to let you all know that I'm glad we have connected on some sort of personal level, business is business but when it comes down to it, we all have to have some sort of scape goat and I'm just ecstatic that I was able to reach into your hearts and have you feel connected with me because that's where a bond is created. Not to get all 'weird' LOL. But no, I really appreciate all of these responses... I'm going to PM you topdown in regards to some articles, I didn't personally feel like my writing skills were up to par but I appreciate all the compliments.

    And honestly, again, thank you guys so much.

    -Owen

    The best atm I can think for you is writing jobs -- get them, as you are an expert in writing (very convincing-looking stories). :)

    Then ofc, begin reading the forums and find the methods that can 'suit your style'!


    You can well be the next case of: "was broke yesterday, am breaking records today!"

    Also, Internet Marketing is not built for the weak. Once I started making $1500 a month, I was really happy got lazy and stopped working for a week or so and then all my videos got mass banned. I only had micro niche sites to back up my income but that was only $100 a month. So imagine being that hero than going to zero within 24 hours. Just a heads up that a lot can be auto pilot but there's still that chance. Take the advice "Don't put all of your eggs in one basket" very seriously.

    A Fiverr gig in writing is definitely a good way to make a quick buck if you can sit down and have the ability to write out a coherent thought. While I'm a little older than you, I don't have the responsibility of a child yet. I wish you the best of luck for them and yourself. In regards to your Ex - here's what I did to mine: Move on. Realize how toxic they were to you, and make it a point to improve yourself and loathe the day that they ever stepped out on you. The best revenge in life is living a good one. You'll make it through this, and we're here if you want to chat. Feel free to add me on Skype too.

    Well guys, I am OP's best friend that is helping him out, and I can tell you that this story is completely true. I've known him since I was 3 and he was 4. I have seen his ups and downs, and I have hated him more than once because of the woman that he was talking about, but he was in a time of need, and I am the only one that has tried helping him. If you guys can come up with some ways (and from what he tells me, you guys can do anything) that he can get started without a huge down payment, I will get the ball rolling. I am letting him stay with me rent free and buying his food for him, but I can't do a whole lot more than that, as I am working a security job full-time making $8.75 an hour, and also going to college full-time at the same time. He has 24/7 access to a computer (a good one at that, as I have two computers built for gaming), and 24/7 net access, although my net is pretty damn slow and my college apartments do not allow upgrades. Time Warner Cable sucks, just an FYI.

    I do not know if I will be extremely active on this site or not, but OP has been talking about BHW since the day after he moved in with me, and he literally spends all of his free time on this site. But I will be here to support him, and to try helping him get the ball rolling. Hell, if it works out well for him, I might quit my crappy job and join him lol. But you guys are awesome, and I want to thank you all for support him and helping him out.

    OP I'm not home at the moment. But I will definitely try to help you by tonight or tomorrow morning. It would be very helpful if you could tell me what skills do you possess (in real and virtual world)?
    Just sit tight and don't give up!

    This is gold and very accurate. Start small OP and work your way up as you learn and progress. It will take some time but it's very possible. I used to think there was no way people were making thousands of dollars a day in this game until it happened to me.

    Don't give up, learn, test, learn, test, learn, test, deposit and save, repeat.

    My story is kind of like yours, times 1000.
    2 Years ago I lost EVERYTHING because of a woman, my home, my Harley, my $200 a day online business, and I ended up in jail looking at LIFE IN PRISON (Wrongly accused, it was later proven!). When I got out after 6 weeks for something I didn't do, I ended up humbly calling someone I hardly knew, and lived in his garage for almost a year. I've STRUGGLED to get back to where I was, but I NEVER GAVE UP. One failure after another, but I trudged on. I'm now back at around $150 a day, and in a couple weeks, am buying my own home. Hopefully in 3 months I'll have another Harley, and all my needs are being met.

    All I can say is, DON'T GIVE UP!
