    So, I am new to IM and BHW in general. I've been reading for a few months but finally decided to throw my hat in so to speak. I've got about $400 dollars to invest and I am looking for advice. I know I am not gonna be a millionaire overnight. I know it's gonna take months and months. Maybe a year just to get to somewhere around maybe $1000 a month. It's gonna be hard work and I'll need to work at it everyday maybe even more than a full time job and I am prepared for that. I will do whatever it takes to get where I need to be.

    In terms of skills I have a degree in science, I'm really skilled in computers (been building and maintaining them in both software and hardware since 11) I have a passion for all things tech and gaming and understand all that real well.

    I was thinking maybe blogging, perhaps amazon affiliate work or just SEO and adsense. Also maybe site flipping if I can get somewhere with it. I'd appreciate any advice and I'd love to hear what the community has to offer.

    Pick one thing that interests you and work on it until your fingers bleed. Don't spread yourself thin trying to learn/do all the various methods you listed upfront. Long term, I find its generally advisable to use what you learn here to market/SEO your own actual business. If you have a passion for break/fix then offer that as your service, use what you learn here to promote your company locally and through SEO.

    Good luck.

    Thank you for the advice! I intend to take it to heart. You mention promoting a business. I could promote myself as a freelance writer. I am writing a novel myself and I am very good with scientific and technical writing too. Could open a site and promote myself that way. Maybe even a blog to act as a sort of portfolio of my writing style. I do greatly enjoy writing
