    Hi everyone.. I been a big fan of online markets since I was 14-15.

    A little about me and how i started:

    It all started when I couldn't get a job and I was desperately in need of cash because I turned into a new path at around 14-15. I was a really bad kid.. did bad in school, barely even went actually.. to grinding back all my credits (night school, summer school) by the time of my graduation (except i was missing half a semester).

    The job was to pay for my own lunch and expenses, before I would take my parents cash for lunch and stuff. (My mom was the reason why I decided to change my life around)

    I know i'm new to this site, but I been on many sites before this one and I'm not really a big of a noob but really rusty.

    What i enjoy doing:

    - Video games
    - TV Shows / Anime
    - Gym 5 times a week
    - Have a pretty good friend circle (active social life)

    What I achieved since then:

    - Neopet market back when I was 14-15 (this was my sub for a job)
    - Made 10,000 in a year by scraping users, and cracking into old accounts to acquire rare items ( I was 14/15 was learning really quick )
    - Created my first neopet website shop that costed 1000, which generated more then 5000 in sales
    - Almost pushed the "buy" button to buy 1000 worth of bitcoin back when i was 14/15 using my brother Paypal if anyone was wondering (i screwed up big time.. didn't believe in online currency)
    - Concentrated on school to get back on track for the next 2 years
    - Started my interested in the stock market
    - Lost my first 1000 in penny stocks (don't do it guys if your inexperience)
    - Decided to create a fan page for an upcoming popular game when I was taking my final half semester
    - Started University, Started a job
    - Now currently one of the biggest fan page (currently 250k fans) done by scratch with less then 100 in marketing expenses. (Took 2 years)
    - Made an entertainment website for said game page
    - Made over 6,000 in ad revenue
    - Joined back the stock market
    - Made over 20,000 from APPLE stocks and Blackberry alone in a MONTH!
    - Lost all the money including 8000 extra by getting greedy (The following next month.. :( )
    - I thought i learnt my lesson on stocks (still looking to get back into this.. all about learning and mistakes here)
    - Website broke because my developer was in college.. was not reliable
    - Opened an accessory shop for said game, made over 10,000 but lost most of it from stocks (again being greedy.. did not learn my lesson but lesson is finally learnt now 100%)
    - Dropped out of University because its dumb (not my place to be in.. learning about newspaper advertisement, and stuff like google adword.. learn't all this when i was 14 lol)
    - Quit my job but have a good relationship with them, I can come back anytime.
    - Wasted 7months on video game (the game of said fanpage)
    - Back on track now.. made a new fan page for Entertainment in the anime section
    - Fixed my website.. hoping to make a come back (had 10k unique visitors a day before)
    - Finished my anime entertainment website
    - Ready to start accumulating fans and make another big fan page
    - Bought some marketing programs on BHW! Ready to learn again.

    That's all! Hope everyone enjoys the read. If anyone here is a big fan of anime and is willing to ride a journey with me.. hit me up. I will only work with dedicated straight minded people with a good personality. Or if you want to become friends i'm fine with that too :D

    I can try to answer some questions if appropriate.

    Cheers

    Damn, had to keep editing until i found out what was wrong. Couldn't post it because of a warning XD

    I see, you lost most of your earnings on stock. Sorry to say but you did not learnt any lesson from it .... you spent on stocks over n over.
    So, what's your plan now .... start a journey to collect money for being greedy again?

    First time was to experiment, what's a 17 year old going to do with $1000 extra in the bank but to waste it on food and entertainment?
    Second time was also an experiment, I've used investopedia and was really good at it, but nothing beats real life and the actual real thing. (scored big on this one)
    Third time .. it was more of "i know how this goes and rushed things"..
    Fourth time it was more of a.. "no way i'm that stupid i'm going to make it back".

    It's all about mistakes my friend, i'm still young and still way better then most people.

    I already have money saved up from the 7month of doing nothing.

    Rinse and repeat, you may be right, start a journey, create a portfolio and i'll make sure I have the passive income to do it again.

    I'm really jealous of you for having a good social life - it's something I really miss nowadays. You also have quite a history, good luck with this journey :)
