    Hello to all BHW members

    I hope you are all doing awesome. I'd like to thank you for taking time to read my thread. I'm going to tell you a bit more about myself and what are my main goals.

    I'm an Internet Marketer coming from small Balkan country called Serbia. I'm only 17 years old and I walked into IM a bit less than year ago (August 2013). I heard about IM even before that because my brother was doing some CPA/Affiliate Marketing but I was really young (in his opinion) to start working with him. A little bit in the future I really gained an interest to start working in IM field so I start reading. My big mistake is I started reading on Digital Point instead of here but okay. That's life.

    In the September of 2013. I managed to land a client and earned myself a couple of bucks. I'm still making him some simple WordPress websites for $90. I was also reading lot of blogs last year so I decided to start my own which end it up to be a complete failure. However, that didn't put me down. I got angry and even more motivated but my biggest problem was and still is, freakin' school. It takes most of my time so I really don't have to much energy to work, research and earn on Internet. However, I'm not taking school as an excuse for my failures. I think I can succeed combining these two. I just need to be smarter when combining.

    On the start of this year, I made a couple of New Years resolutions to change my life. I start working like crazy and managed to earn around $3000 in period of 4-5 months mostly from freelancing. This was huge for me,(considering that average salary here in Serbia is $400), I was really satisfied and that broke me down. I loosen up with the work because I gained financial stability on the moment and I also needed to study hard for my final exams so I can pass. I lost most of the clients I gained so I was back at earning $0 in June. Summer vacation started around 20th June and I took a break to 1st July because I was really tired from going to school and working every day.

    From 1st July, I made couple of decisions that I will keep working in IM field no matter what. It just provides me money and freedom I need. My parents are not big earners (actually my mom is unemployed) so I really can't take money from them. That's why I need to keep working hard and fight for myself.

    However, I was doing lot of research and reading and I'm also a fast learner. I absorb everything I read or here and that was the reason why my English is pretty good even if I'm not native English speaker.

    I decided to start with Fiverr. I know that I can start earning really quickly through this network. My plan is to start getting around $40-$50 a day from 10-20 gigs I created. I'm mostly offering writing or similar services over there but I also figured out some lucrative gigs that are not so saturated.

    I'm also offering SEO, Marketing and Content Creation services everywhere I can. I started with Digital Point but I plan expanding onto other forums as well (not here on BHW yet).

    I've also created Elance and Odesk profiles and they are looking awesome. However, with no reviews it will be hellish hard to land any job but I will keep going until I get something. What annoys me are people who are offering $1.50 per 500 words articles which is idiotic thing to do.

    I'm so interested into CPA and Affiliate Marketing but I still need to learn a lot about it. I'm reading every method and idea I stumbled on but I know I'm not ready to start due to my small budget and knowledge in it. I have a Peerfly account set up and few ideas simmering in my head but I will wait for a while.

    I'm also planning to create some eBooks for Kindle Fire marketplace. I think it can provide me some stable passive income where I don't have to much work to do. This will be needed especially when I start going to school again at September.

    Today was my day 1 and I managed to:

    • Organize reviews for my newly created Fiverr Gigs (10 gigs btw)
    • Submit three proposals on Elance/Odesk
    • Review 15 different methods for CPA and Affiliate Marketing
    • Find some free eBooks to read related to CPA
    • Find some tools I'm going to need
    • Write one article for my client (daily task).
    I currently have only two clients but I'm planning to expand really quickly. I hope for the best.

    My daily motivational quote: ''Nothing will work unless you do''

    Wish me luck people!

    I'll keep updating the journey every day!

    I just start reading, researching, testing, seeing what works and what not. I used to spend all my free time learning as much as I can. Considering the fact I can learn and implement really quickly and I'm ready to battle with anything you throw at me, I developed some skills I'm trying to sell now. It's hard but I was raised never to give up and I will stay on the road as long as I can walk.

    Thanks for the wishes by the way!

    Day 3 accomplished! I managed to get couple of Fiverr reviews and few actual orders so yesterday, I managed to earn $11. It's not a lot, but it's good and healthy start for me. I applied for some jobs on Elance and Odesk. I managed to get interviewed by two guys on Odesk regarding some easy content writing jobs. I hope I will land those!
    However, I haven't managed to do a lot of research around CPA and Affiliate Marketing. Yesterday, I was really tired because I had some other tasks outside of the IM world.

    Day 4 to do list:

    -I got one new order on Fiverr and I will make sure I do it on time. I'll maybe schedule some new reviews and keep doing orders if I get any.
    -I'll try to land those two gigs on Odesk.
    -I'll apply for more jobs on both, Elance and Odesk.
    -I'll do a lot of research about Amazon Niche websites and probably decide on what niche should I use.

    That will be it for today!

    I don't look on SEO like either White Hat or Black Hat. For me it's either quality or not. In today's world of SEO, as soon as you build a link, it will be considered as a black hat SEO because it's unnatural. I'm a bit sick of that. I build sites only building quality links the way I think it's going to be the best.
