    Hey Everyone. I Lost my job 2 weeks ago and I just found BHW recently. I guess you can call me a newbie. I've read some posts here and there here. Can anyone give me some pointers on how to make some money? I am at a point in my life that makes me nervous that I won't be able to provide for my family. I only have $197 in the bank. I see their is a lot of smart people here. Anyways I don't want to sound desperate, just need some guidance that works. For anyone that helps me and my family, I greatly appreciate it. God Bless..

    You need to read a lot, take notes (a lot), think before you act, never trust anyone.

    Hey man, no offence, but why not find a job first? Making money online is not an overnight thingy.

    ^brucewayne is right find a job first and when you got job offline then you can start slowly entering into the IM world at first as a sideline but as you learn and earn mostly on your income on the internet, maybe that's the time you quit your job offline and focus online good luck OP

    you most likely wont make enough money by the time you need to pay bills again, its the cold truth , either find a new place to stay or getting a new job is your best bet. do you have any computer skills (programming etc)? or you can start building a website that can make a lot of money by investing some of that 197$ but as said above i doubt it will make money quick enough

    $197 in the bank, and you're just now getting nervous that you 'won't be able to provide for your family'?

    In any case - the IM game, particularly blackhat IM, is not something you go into when you have an empty bank account and a family to support.
    First, go get a job and get stable. Then, when you're stable and have spare hours and spare dollars, come back to IM.
    You'll not only be in a better frame of mind, but your family won't starve. So a couple of upsides there.

    Kev, everybody started from the bottom. And before I say anything. P.S: You're already looking at a forum with every bits and pieces of gold anybody can absorb and take with them to start building a empire. Now to my story.

    I kinda like reading topics like these because it brings me back to the point where I and mostly everybody else were starting as beginners here. However, since this topic has been posted thousands of times here, I don't think you will find any new answers. Mostly everybody would say, "Get a job! Lazy fucker" Trust me, I probably hate hearing that more than anybody else. But I have to say, it motivated me way more than it should. If anybody is like me, I hate 9-5 jobs like working at Walmart or any other grocery store. Personally, I never worked a 9-5 job before because I started making a lot of money before I'd try to apply for another one.

    Anyway, I'll get back to my point. If you don't have the patience, enough time or if you're not a fast learner, you might as well apply for a 9-5 job on the side. Otherwise, you might not see success depending on which route you decide to take. At some areas, you may have to be ready to invest while at other areas you may discover that you don't necessarily have to.

    Alike from anafsp1 mentioned, "Read and take a lot of notes." After you do all of that, you're ready to take action. By the way, good luck Kev.

    Don't bother wasting money on FB ads or whatever. You need at least 3 months of studies everyday with determination to do something successful.

    My word of advise - Learn to sell yourself better & do some self reflection.

    Why you feel nervous only when you reach $197 and not earlier
    Why you lose your job, is it your fault or other fault?(most probably I will blame myself first if its happen to me)

    Regardless, Learn to sell yourself better. Learn to be outspoken, confident & sincere and then you might nail a job.
    I only believe you can concentrate and try & error only when you are in a stable state, not the state you are in now.

    If you going to find a job of that industry, maybe read up more before you go for the interview, to make yourself more resourceful. I wish one day you will be successful in life and also in Internet Marketing.

    I also give this advise because you are a family man, who got mouths to feed. I guess its better to get into a better state first. For others who are without financial burden, they are free to continue source and try and error, because they only have to feed themselves.

    From someone who earn online thanks to bhw. God bless.

    Honestly making money online is risky, especially starting off.

    Your best bet is to get an actual real job, and do this as a hobby/side job

    You take that 197$ and you get a suit, a shave, a hair cut, and as many cardstock resumes as you can print. You hit the pavement and you get a job. When you have a less drastic time in your life, take up IM. Option 2: get REALLY (REALLY!) lucky. Good luck!

    Sorry, but how is it possible that you only had under $200 in your bank?

    Didn't it occur to you that you needed more?

    If you don't even know what "IM" stands for - and you don't have the brains to find out for yourself - this isn't for you.

    I'm sorry if that sounds harsh but if you can't be bothered to find out what "IM" stands for - you're not going to make money online. Making money online is not quick, nor is it easy. Your best bet is finding an actual job to provide for yourself and your family and then maybe come back to this when you have some spare time.

    Again, I apologise if this came out blunt/harsh but I refuse to believe anyone with an account made in 2016, with 1 post - who claims they have $197 in the bank and no money to feed their family. Why does everyone turn to this forum as soon as something goes wrong? That's not how it works. Instead of getting your hopes up thinking you'll make money online "quickly" - please try to get another job for the time being to provide for your family.
