    Hello everyone!


    Dont know where i should begin! I'm 23 years old i'm not native english speaker its my second language. I was born in family who believed that more you work the richer you will get by taking every overtime hours they could. So i would never see them really. When i turned 18 i moved out straight away i found my own place and job. I accualy moved out the next day i turned 18. I was ready to start my own life i was so excited. Everything was so exciting for me.

    In my first job i worked so hard. I would always be the first one there 30 minutes early. I would have everything set up and ready to work. I would always get the job done in time no matter what i wasnt lazy nothing. I would get every month bonus and my name on the wall employee of the month. I always been curious so id always question my boss. Hey how did you start your business what are the monthly expenses and so on. Even at one point i knew more about his business than himself. :D When i left the work he threw up a party just for me it was a open bar night. Everyone takes what he wants. He offered me so many things just so i would stay i kept refusing.

    I had 3 more jobs and in every place same thing happened. I believed if i work my a** off for someone i will get sooooooo rich one day. I realised if i want something i will get it even if i cant sleep for like a week. I'd save my money and spend it on travelling. By age of 21 i travelled nearly all of europe made so many friends.

    At around age of 20 i started to think i need more money. I was looking into stuff how can i make money? I searched around the web and i came across dropshipping from amazon to ebay. So i tryed every item i could find. Well its funny only things what were selling was barbies haha ok what ever i sold like 10 of them and 1 barbie house :D Its still money haha i loved it.. But sales were slow. So i decided ohh i maybe i can do something else. Ok i bought vinyl paper, heat press and vinyl cutter and around 400 t shirts. I thought i will print on them and sell on ebay.. Well it didnt work out because in work i kept getting more and more hours it kinda burned me out. I'd be tired after work always because few days a week i had like 16 hour shifts... I didnt have time so i sold it back. That didnt work out as well..

    My friend got job in sales(door to door sales). They brain washed him he kept thinking he will be so rich. He had to work there every day 16 hours a day. He was so brainwashed they would motivate him all time. 2 hours before going around knocking doors they would teach him how to sell. Teach him peoples psychology and more stuff... He wasnt aloud to come in with sad face. He would always smile. He stayed there for 6 months. Yeah he didnt make no money at all. Maybe enough for food.. But what happened after he left he was soo good at talking. His confidence was so high. He learned how to sell himself. Imagine bar there is 20 guys and there is 1 girl. He would walk up to her and get her. No matter who were the other guys. One time we walked into a bar there was no girls except the bar tender girl. Yeahh you guessed it he got her that night. He changes girls like socks. He can sell anything. He can get job in no time everyone loves him. Because he learned how to sell himself.

    I told my mom i want to do that job. She went crazy oh my god you cant make money from it are you mad. I will never let you do that keep working... Save all the money you make.. Well that was the place i realised sometimes its not about the money. Its what you learn because later on it will pay off. At start maybe there is no money but later on it will pay off big time. Yeah when i was 22 i burned out in work. I quit my work and kept partying for 4 months. Well i had many hot girls i had savings i could do things i like and i had time. Than my mom told me i will pay you for college i said yes. Because i really needed some time off. So i started to study. I had to move different city. Dont know what happened i was sorounded with tons of negative people. They were like blood sucking zombies. So negative about anything if i say ima do good they will make sure it wont be for long. Its just the words thay say.. But after while it really depresses you and they drain your energy. They do that to everyone. Nice i falled in depression for months. I would sleep 15 hours a day and i was turning like them.

    I started to read alot. Books about finance,psychology anything that would help me. Than i read the book rich daddy and poor daddy. I realised damm i have been doing everything wrong.. I shouldn't been spending money on extras just to impress other people. I should be building assets. Like website, business, investing, real estate. Anything that can bring me in profit and i could make my money work for me. I realised what the hell will change when i finnish college i get a bit better job but hey its still gonna be everything the same... Nothing will change. I see now my friends is all about new car so they get credit for it. Than pay years for it because they wanted to be cool. Than they find a girl and have a baby at like 25. They didnt even bother to open a book its just all about who is the coolest person. Than they complain how over worked they are. Than they decide oh maybe we can get cheap house get credit and pay all there lifes. When there old they keep telling there children work so hard and go to college its only way to get rich. Well the cycle will still go on nothing will change.

    What i realised first is career i wont spend money now just to impress others i will save it and invest it. Ima start slowly and make money work for me hard. It might take few years but once it works out ill be good. I bought domain 5 months ago and hosting as well. Im paying every month for it. But havnt done anything i was in depression because of them vampires who doesnt want to see me doing good. Could be jelousy i define jelousy as insecuraty. I would find reasons all time why i cant start working on it. Oh i dont feel good or im lazy bla bla its over its gonna be old me i will do everything to make it happen. I realised every day in life gets harder and harder my dad is in hospital now. I realised ima have so many problems in life comming up. Now im struggling bad people around no girls no money nothing good it means i will get only stronger by solving things. I have to make it. I want to make you guys proud and myself.

    I will update everything what im doing so you can follow my progress. If ill need advice i hope you guys are there for me.

    Now ima get back working on my site design and i will update everything i will start with affilate marketing and i will do blogs. Its my first step.

    iLatvian I wish you all the best on your journey.
    You chose the best possible option where are you going to write about it, most everyone wants to help you and if that does not happen certainly answer can be found here in the forum.
    I'm gonna follow you and hope for the best, good luck.

    I designed today my wordpress website. I still need to make a contact form might buy in future more proffesional theme. Wrote 3 articles there uniqe i will have 5 categories. I didnt post them yet i will look at them tomorrow if i still like them i might want to make some changes. In future i will redesign my articles a lil bit so i can fit in some anchor texts leading to my other articles. So i would keep the readers more interested. I wrote out around 50 ideas for my next articles. I need to look into more seo backlinking and social media. I will make tomorrow facebook page and twitter.

    You learned what most people never learn: break the cycle.

    You'll make it if you just keep trying, no matter how many times you fail.

    I was gone for few days but now im back here. I had to move house and my college starts. Today i wrote out more articles im about to post them soon in next 1-2 days. I need to change some things in my wordpress site. Can you guys suggest me some good plugins for wordpress? I need something that would gather people emails and contact form. You can name out some more plugins which are worth using.
