Hey amigos, long time lurker here - decided to finally get serious and focus on building my empire. For too long I've tried bits and bobs but now i'm serious and set myself a huge target: Buy a house in 2018! Yes, I'm done with renting (mugs game - no offence) month-to-month. I now have no job (freelance only) and almost zero in the bank. But I do have a bunch of ideas, as well as a neat little software extension tool I've developed and its all good to go. I just need to take action now, hustle 'n grind. But also one more important thing: hold myself accountable. That's exactly why i'm posting here - for both support and accountability. Anyways, back to the plan. While I don't have much financial resource, I do have time - so I need to make sure I spend it wisely. I have 3 parts of my plan: 1) Sell my Software Extension Tool - This is a lil' 3rd party extension tool I actually developed myself over a year ago, for a business software product. There is zero competition, just need to convince target users of it's value. I have packaged it up into a nice download file, bug tested and its good to go. Also setup an online store page with a temporary hosting offer and using PayPal as payment. I'm pricing it as $20 and will keep 100% excluding PayPal fees. Selling begins tonight - I'll be cold-emailing my contacts/businesses that I have accumulated over the years, as well as reaching out to relevant blogs/forums that may help me. Expect the next 7-days worth of energy will mostly go on this project. I have further plans, including offering online access/support as a SaaS. I think it's slightly easier to hustle to businesses with budgets, rather than poorer consumers lol, so I will explore this further in the future. 2) Build an Amazon Content Site - I made my first IM dollar many many years ago on niche hobby sites, but this time I want to build out a much larger branded site. This is a longer-term evergreen project, but I need to get started sooner rather than later. More on this another day. 3) Turnkey-Fun-Projects (TFP) - Every time I come to BHW I discover a new idea. I am also a big fan of not putting all of your eggs in one basket, especially with payment streams - so I want to diversify. But of course, I also don't want to spread myself too thin by doing too many things at once. So I'm going to only allow 1-2 Hours maximum on Part 3. I'm calling this phase TFP (Turnkey-Fun-Projects). These could be anything from CPA to Video to Social Media Marketing. The key with these is it has to be fast, scalable or possibility to outsource in the future. My end game in all of this is to be in a position to buy a house next year (2018). Either via a mortgage ($30k deposit) or if things really take off, buy a house outright. Who knows? I also will will be asking for your guys opinions along the way - if you feel I'm making mistakes a long the way then please let this brother know. Exciting times ahead - let's hope this is a fun and rewarding journey! BME "a hustlers work is never through"
