    This is Not a Guide but a Daily Journal on my Journey to $30k.

    :beach2:

    Still interested? Background Story: Been long time lurcher on BHW but craps hit the fan this week and my circumstances are about to change dramatically. I work in Project Management (Freelance Niche Area), but salary is pretty garbage because partly because my experience is still low and the location where I am limits the opportunities I have. Anyways this week my room-mate announced he's moving back to his State so basically I can't afford to live here much longer... So either pack up & go back to my brother's place, or say to hell with it and start earnin' some extra cash. Out of all the tech stuff I read, BHW world is by far the best community so thought I'd use all of the great knowledge here to finally achieve my dreams.

    My dream actually isn't to just stay where I am, but to move to a bigger place in better location this year too. To pay off all my debts, get a more reliable used car and have a nice Winter break. I now see this sudden change as a kick up the a$$ and an opportunity. So I've totted down all my figures and need $29k this year to fulfil all my dreams. I've rounded the figure up to $30k and I'm going for it... I have experience in Software, WWW & Sales so I think this is the best opportunity to focus on. My first priority is making $1000 rent by end of this month (July). Thanks to selling some bits I now have around $300 total to invest. I basically need to turn that $300 into $1000 or, use some of it.

    Now I think I've come up with a decent idea, less BHW more around sales of my own developed simple software plug-in, so this will be my focus and I will write about this later. But what I want to figure out is a way to invest my $300 and make additional money using the least brain exhausting or intensive option as possible? So today, I'm gonna look into a few recent BHW MM posts including the V-Gold Mining/Selling, Kindle, Fiverr and possible CPAs. Problem is ideally I need revenues and cash flow so this will be taken into consideration.

    Anyway, today's post done. I plan on posting most days throughout the rest of this year. I think a Journal is vital to keep on track. If you guys have any ideas or would care to give me some pointers on helping with my journey then please reply... :cool:

    Good luck with your journey mate! You should've posted this in the IM Journeys section so you should probably ask a mod to move it there

    UPDATE #1
    (had delete to all of this post because i'm new the system thinks I'm a robot - wish there was a way to ask a Mod to read it???)


    edit: Basically tomorrow I will be working on my industry plugin, the new tshirt method and Amazon site targeting this christmas. Really disappointed my post that took 30 minutes to write up had to be deleted because of an auto-bot :angryfire ...with NO way to ask a BHW mod to read it. What a waste of my time... How long am I classed as a new member limit?

    Update #2

    After a good nights sleep, I'm back and raring to go. Now I had planned to start researching more methods but I just read a great post by t0mmy which really opened my eyes! I realise I can't waste any more of my LIMITED time researching methods. I guess every method can work if you try hard enough. So gonna push on with my main efforts of the Plugin (80% of my time) and Amazon/Tshirt/Fiverr for non time consuming gigs. While I could spend all of my time on one thing I like the idea of variety and not putting all my eggs in one basket.

    So once I have finished my client work this weekend I will begin crunching on. My marketing strategy is slightly different than what other people in the industry. I'm planning on contacting potential clients directly one-by-one for the first few months until I run out of contacts, before opening the floodgates as it were with mass marketing. I like the idea of a two-pronged attack, especially with conversion targets around 2% in this industry.

    BIG thanks to everyone who's wished me luck so far! I realised last night that I could be typing this journey on a private blog. But I love the BHW community, despite the competition everyone on here is friendly and I need encouragement and fun on this epic journey to 30k. As always if anyone has any advice or tips to help let me know guys. :cool:

    Update #3

    So completed all obligations/client work this weekend and now ready to get to work on my Plugin plan. I just created a new spreadsheet listing everything need to do/links etc. Kind of like a hybrid between a ToDoList/Diary. It's epic, probably only half of the stuff I need to do. Anyways plans for today are to begin cleaning my Plugin from bugs, research Landing Pages, decide on price and payment gateway. Deciding on price is a tricky one, I need to be critical and decide just how much value my plugin benefits those in my industry. I would only ever pay for something that will save me time/costs within 1 month maximum so that's a starting point.

    I do seem to have the market to myself :clap2: there are other plugins that can do similar to what mine can but they are part of bigger software projects. But all of this is hypothetical, I need to crack on with it. In the past my biggest fear would be negative criticism or lack of sales. But I can't let that stop me now, I'm on limited time here. Once again thanks for all the feedback guys!!

    Stay committed. Set short and long term goals so that when you complete a short term goal, you are that much more excited and committed on completing those bigger ones. Good luck!
