    I have a pretty easy going job, and do well... but since I have so much spare time, I want to put it to good use.

    My background is mainly in IT (infrastructure), and had some exposure to marketing, and finance.

    I have been online for many years (good old IRC days and warez!), always learning new things, from basic excel macros, PSD, some DBA stuff, VMWare, scripting, etc etc.

    Anyways, I need someone to chat with me via Skype, helping me understand IM better, strategies, money making sites, etc. Preferably, you do this for a living, and can show me some examples of your sites. I can pay you for your time, help, guidance, and any services you could offer. I rather go with someone that has a few years of experience... and is located in the US.

    Thanks,

    M

    you already got a jump start when you registered to BHW.

    Search ..Read and take action is the mantra.

    Start with the sticky threads in every category.

    Welcome to the site. As my friend Sahl says, search, read, search, read, search, and read some more. There is a WEALTH of information on this site, and the community here is fantastic. BUT, and thats a big butt (lol) ... the community is merciless to when it comes to crucifying obvious noobs who wont take 30 seconds to search for something or are looking for handouts. Read through the sections, take your time, make this your mission for the next few weeks to read through everything. THEN, take action as Sahl says... start a small effort, build a little project, install a wordpress site or something, and learn from your effort. THEN come back, search some more, and after you've exhausted all that, ask away.

    Good luck to ya.

    Welcome.

    Change "Newbee needs jumpstart" to

    "Newbee needs jumpstart (just advice over Skype)...will pay via PayPal $$$"

    You'll get plenty of established folks PM'ing you and offering a little hand-holding.

    Consider this your first lesson; you did not communicate the value of what you had to offer in your pitch! :)

    All were once newbies. As more people become comfortable using the internet and purchasing over the internet, the profits to be made online will skyrocket. Already the internet has created more millionaires overnight than any other time in the history of mankind. There are tens of thousands of people earning monthly incomes of $20, 000 per month and more. Most of these people started out as internet marketing newbies.
    There is a wealth of information on BHW forum. BlackHatWorld is the best place to learn.
