Hello everyone. This journey was in 2014 and was my best year of my life. I made 35,000$ in that year. So lets get detailed how everything started. So in 2012, I was in 10 standard in high school and really needed a laptop and internet connection so I could do school projects and do school homework's. So I asked my parents if I could get a laptop, they first said no because of finance problem, and told me to wait couple of months. After about 5-6 months, I finally got a laptop (which was in installment ) and after 2 more months, I got an internet connection. I felt so bad and almost made me cry. I didn't know anything earning money from internet at that time (2012). Later that year, I started searching "how to make money online" and found lots of ideas. I first started blogger and wrote couple of posts but didn't work out because getting traffic from google was very hard. So I searched more, then found out that money can be made from youtube. So I searched what people uploaded and which niche gets tons of views. After one month searching a lot, I learned a lot about youtube and how it works. Now I know what to do. I found out that huge kids love to watch cartoons on youtube. So I made a channel and started uploading donald duck cartoons shows of 1 hour long, and made a partnership with Freedom! youtube network because they offer non-skippable ads means huge money. I applied and got accepted. After just one month, all of my videos has gone viral and some even gone to 5-6 million views. I started earning 200$+ per day, I was shocked and thought if this is even real. Later that month, when I got my first payment, my god I must say I was happiest person alive on the planet. I was just about 15-16 years old kid, so you know the feeling (I am turning 20 this year). This was my first payment. Then I told my mom "mom, I made 140$ on online" she said, "get outta here, i am busy and we are having a tough time". I withdrawn the money from bank (I had a minor bank account which can be made for 13-18 year kids). I came home and showed the money to my mom and asked me "from where do you it? tell me the truth". I said "clam down" *I hold my moms hand* and shown her the website youtube and I said "many people earn money from this website". I think this post is getting big, so I skip now to fun part. After my first payment, this happened later months: I was so shocked and happiest person in school, home, wherever because I kept thinking about this. My parents were so proud of me, they were able to pay debts all and I also buyed some things of my own. I wanted a good pc, so I could play games and record. These things I bought, a big TV, ps4, my dream pc and gave all the remaining to my parents so they could buy land. It only lasted for one year, because Disney gave me 3 copyrights which banned my channel. But we got the money. Now I have my own gaming channel where I am earning about 200$ per month and have 7,000 legit subscribers. This was my cartoon channel. So that's was my 2014 journey. I hope this inspires many people. I only joined BHW 3 months ago, learned so many things and still learning. I spend now most of my time here on BHW, checking others posts how they are earning and how other people are doing and their life. I am glad I found this great website and decided to join. Thank you! Good luck everyone with their journey. Derek, signing out!
