    I'm going to list my top 5 keys to success and elaborate on them. I just recently started to make a decent income stream and with my next project I hope to take it to a whole new level.

    1. Find a partner.

    I have the privilege of partnering with someone I've known since I was 10. I can't tell you how many times I've been too lazy to do work and he yells at me and makes me do shit but I never get mad because I wouldn't have gotten where I am now without him. It's also soooo nice to be able to just spitball ideas for hours and get feedback on what could work and what couldn't. He is living across the hall from me in my apartment complex starting in august so expect big things.

    2. Try everything.

    I started out just like most of you guys, building websites for clickbank products and trying to get them ranked. This is all fine and dandy but there are always more untapped markets to get into. I found it very helpful trying out a lot of different money making ways and now I have several very different projects making me money.

    3. Don't be afraid to invest your money.

    One of the biggest things that slowed me down in the beginning was that I was too afraid to invest any money into anything. I was trying every free way to get traffic and sales. I will admit, it worked for a while, but there is only so much you can do before you plateau and don't make any more progress.

    4. Action.

    Like everyone says on this forum, you can talk about your big ideas all day but if you aren't putting them to action, you are no more successful than the next guy. Just try it out, so what if you lose some money, you will make it back if you just keep trying.

    5. Build Capital.

    My partner and I have a pretty strict plan, all money made goes to funding bigger projects. Some people use all the money they make online and just frivolously spend it on things like drugs, alcohol, video games, etc. It takes money to get money. So save everything you make and use it to fund your bigger projects.

    Anyway I hope this helps get you off the ground and good luck making bank!

    Great tips! And yeah seriously I too was too afraid to invest anything in the beginning, but it really is worth it. You save so much time.

    And I would add #6 - Work on one method at a time! There are so many ways to make money, especially here at bhw, but you will be so much more productive if you just stick to 1 method at a time. If the method works, replicate. If it doesn't, drop it and try the next one.

    Don't be afraid of failing! We won't be successful in everything we try but don't let that deter you. Consider it a lesson learnt, experience gained and one more step to making it big!

    I totally agree, there were times my partner wanted to do several things at once and I had to slow him down because it was actually less productive

    I agree with point 3. You can make money with no money but it would need a lot of energy because you do all the job without a software or labours. In the end= less money

    On the other side when you use your money to invest (i.e. to buy great software) it would be more effective so you can finish more jobs in less time. In the end= much $$$

    Good tips although I don't agree with try everything. You need to stick with one method if you want to be successful. It is impossible to achieve success in the first try. The key to success is not to quit whatever may happen.

    Sticking to one method has nothing to do with not trying everything. I stuck to one method at a time but I tried several different methods over a couple months until I found the most profitable one.
