the time series of my monthly income: http://s13.postimg.org/i82gabndj/income.jpg at the very lowest point, i made less than $5 a day. the cheapest foot-long subway is $5.30. i have been reading BHW for about 5 years. this is what i think now. copying success stories, step by step did not work for me. perhaps i was not persistent enough. my turning point was when i started digging into tumblr, and found my own way. even fiverr has not done much for me. i have to say that fiverr did carry me through the toughest time.
