    I'm making this mainly to keep tabs on myself, as I have a very bad habit of giving up too early on projects.


    I've been dabbling with IM for years now. I've made pocket change here and there, but never really gave it my best. I always end up just reading about other people's success and think to myself that I'll do that too...when I get to it. I have 2 extremely bad habits:

    1. Starting too many projects at once and spreading myself thin on all of them
    2. Giving up at the first obstacle, or before even launching the project

    I honestly hate these characteristics. I'm also somewhat of a perfectionist, and won't launch something or start something until I have every once of knowledge or everything ready first. I hate it. I overanalyze everything.

    I'm unhappy. I've been unhappy and feel like I'm on the verge of depression for a while now. I hate my job. I want to quit. I work in retail. But without it, I have 0 income. I want to make a full-time income online, but I don't really know if I can do it, seeing as how I have all these bad habits. I see other people at work that don't know the difference between black and white, yet make more money than I do. And here I am. College-educated working in a worthless job that'll get me nowhere, and taking orders from people I can't stand, and making less money.

    You can imagine how much that hurts your mentality.

    The other day, I went onto BHW and saw meathead's thread. I didn't do anything, but read and follow along. My first impression was that "oh, this is for noobs just starting with IM." I thought I can make much more than that with my sites. As time passed, how much am I making with my sites now? Nothing. It hit me hard that I'm just a noob as well. I'm no better than anyone who lands on BHW for the first time right now. I didn't take action because I thought the $1k/mo in his thread was "too little" for me. God, I'm stupid. Last time I checked, $0 < $1k.

    So now, I'm going to follow his instructions- step-by-step. I'm not going to deviate too much and try to "out do" his words, but rather take it like a noob and just eat my ego for good.

    It's late now and I have to get up early tomorrow for stupid job. As soon as I come home, I'm going to:

    1. Pick an amazon niche
    2. Research the niche
    3. Choose a persona
    4. Write the pillar article of at least 2000 words
    5. Register a domain
    6. Setup DNS and let it propagate

    If it weren't for this thread, my bad habits would only let me do half of that list. But, for whoever is reading, keep me on track. Please. I'm going to hold myself accountable as well using this thread.

    I have no idea where this is going to get me. I have a decent knowledge of IM from reading so much, but I've made nothing. If I hit even $500/mo I'd be ecstatic.

    If this journey fails, then IM is probably not for me.

    I'll try to post daily if I can, and if I abandon the thread I'll let whoever is following along know, since I know many people hate that.

    Here goes nothing.

    And if you have any advice, please share. I don't know what I'm doing.

    Haven't updated right away like I said I would. Regardless, I've made some progress:

    1. Pick an amazon niche [x]
    2. Research the niche [x]
    3. Choose a persona [x]
    4. Write the pillar article of at least 2000 words [x]
    5. Register a domain [x]
    6. Setup DNS and let it propagate [x]

    I've also:

    -posted the pillar article [x]
    -installed and configured some plugins [x]
    -chose a theme [x]

    The next step in meathead's thread is to:

    "4-9x 1000-2000 word "best" articles." [ ]

    So, that's what I'll do. I'm literally almost doing this verbatim to the thread's instructions. I don't want to deviate too much or else I'll end up getting distracted and doing some other project, like I'm prone to.

    Will post update when done.

    Best of Luck OP. You can make it if you follow his instructions and add your own twist.
    That is the most comprehensive guide I have seen on amazon so far.
