    (actually, there's no need for this to be locked down, so I re-posted it here)

    OK, black hatters. The gauntlet has been thrown down. The Mrs and I had a long talk last night about all the time I've spent on the computer over the last 9 months.

    You see, my 'day job' is in an industry that currently sucks, so I'm determined to 'make it' online...and I'm closer than ever.

    SHE, however, wants me to get another J-O-B.

    After countless heated discussions over the last 3 months about it, here is what I have decided....

    I WILL be in a position to quit my JOB 30 days from today. If not, I will begin looking for another JOB.

    I know I'm close. The question is, can I go from what I'm making now to $200 - $300 per day in a matter of 30 days.

    You're damn right I can...and I will.

    July 20th is the date. Mark your calendars, call your family, set a reminder in Outlook, releease the hounds, whatever.

    If and when I do it, I'll help some of you all do it too.

    NOW>>>

    If anyone wants to help me throw together a quick blog or site where I can post daily updates, that would be great.

    I'm willing to chip in for a domain name and I can put it on my hosting account if you want...but with only 30 days to spare, I don't have time to design something, customize it, SEO it, etc.

    I've got to focus on the things that are making me money.

    Website Designers >>> great opportunity for exposure

    Big Time IM-errs >>> great opportunity for sales..."I helped THIS guy quit his job. Don't you want to be next?"

    OK, that's it. I'm out. Off to make some money. Thanks!

    Chris Monty

    Ok man, give me a domain name or come up with some ideas and I'll grab it. If you want your affiliate stuff/adsense on there, give me that too. :)

    As stated in the previous thread, blackhatzen will help out with on-page and off-page SEO and would be really happy to work with whoever else is interested in helping MontyzPython reach his goals. This is the kind of good deed that I think we need to embrace as a community. MontyzPython is a very well-respected member of the community, let's help him make it to the next level financially.

    Truthfully, it varies. Some days it's $10. Some days it's $0. Some days it's $50. Best day was a lot more, but it only happened once or twice.

    So my goal is two-fold...

    1) Generate a STEADY level of income.

    2) That income must come from multiple sources and methods. NEVER put all your eggs is one basket.

    Lets' roll.

    I'm jumping offline for a FEW minutes to take care of some things here at the J-O-B.

    I'll be back in a few.

    If anyone is interested in helping Montyz out by promoting the site and stuff, drop me a pm.

    We are thinking of rewarding the people that contribute with a rotating adsense, banners, or something similar.

    Thanks, olden. That's great. If there's anything I've learned over the past 9 months....YOU CAN'T DO IT ALONE!

    Hey, thanks Jimmy. I might just need it. This is a little bit nuts...but you can't make the shot if you never take it.

    @ boomer, I'm sure you could! I've got a few phpBay sites myself but they've kinda sucked since the changeover.

    @ pofecker, thanks for the offer. Nice start.

    @ troph, sorry my friend, should have told you first. It was kind of a spur-of-the-moment post! I hope you're not offended in any way.

    @ jahpo, anchor...good question...like I said I haven't had any time to look into SEO or Wordtracker vs Google results. Perhaps check with oldenstylehats as he offered to help with SEO (I believe...lots going on now!).

    Hey Monty, didn't you review the cpa domination method? Why not apply some of those methods?

    Anyway, good luck with your goal. I was in the exact same situation 3 months back but I didn't make it online and will be heading back to work my f/t job next Monday.

    Keep us posted.

    Hey, viv. I did review that. That is actually going to be a big part of my overall plan, as that system in itself takes advantage of multiple income streams. It's just a matter of tweaking it to suit your own style.

    I don't know what will happen either. I can't imagine that I'll be able to focus much on my J-O-B over the next 30 days...lol.
