    I don't know why, but I just felt of writing this. I have talked to a number of newbies in the past 72 hours, and what I see is that they are mostly spending away and then feeling bad.

    One guy who talked to me on AIM yesterday bought the SSM because he wanted to make some money. He was then figuring out how to run it on his Mac. I told him to download a Win XP torrent from piratebay and run it on vmware, he doesn't even know what is a torrent. 15 minutes later he told me he paid $38 to join piratebay - I was like WTF.

    Many of the newbies around think that they can only get started if they start spending - that's a myth. You need to spend time looking at the product, comparing it with other alternatives, and making sure you know what the product is about and how to use it. Things like xrumer are adult toys, and it won't be good for you just because you can afford it.

    So newbies, hide your credit card, and don't spend a cent on anything in your first 2 weeks of learning - if not, you will drain all your cash and accomplish nothing.( everything will look really good and attractive in the beginning).

    Amen brother. Thankfully when I first started I was literally BROKE...so this prevented me from needless spending and buying the newest hottest product.

    If people need some quick start up cash for useful stuff like buying a domain and hosting, I HIGHLY recommend biting the bullet and doing some minor writing/data entry jobs for a week or so.

    If you wade through this forum and start a, organized notepad document by copying/pasting the methods you want to try, you will have more than enough info to get started making money in a variety of different ways.

    Quit spending, and start learning!

    I think you are right mate, but let me add one more thing

    after the two-three weeks of learning, i think its good to buy one of the tool that BHW has to offer.

    I believe that if you buy something with your own money you appreciate it more, paying more attention to what you bought (instead of downloading 200 shiti apps.. and dont using them at all)

    buying is good, and pushing you to make the most of the product you have just bought.

    cheers..!

    I for one, could not agree more.

    I have thread called "So frustrated with DP and Warrior"

    The advice I got in there was so also hide my CC and not use it. I agree. It is ok to buy something once in a while but it seems like everything I could use is either at Pirate Bay or Member downloads right here.

    I had lost around $383 starting off. Now, I am at like #140 loss. I learned.

    LOL.

    I am sure that making back $140 is not that hard.

    To all the newbies out there, hold on to your CC. I could not say this anymore.

    This reminds me of the days when every noob on the net was buying wholesale lists and into wholesale clubs. None of them were worth a nickel, but people bought them for years.

    BTW, stop giving out berrycorp's and mine secrets. They are very lucrative. LOL. I couldn't actually do that to someone though.

    You know what they say about a fool and his money?

    Well everyone is looking for something for nothing. Most newbies look for the easy way out. From my experience quality will win in the end.

    Shame I was too broke to pay for anything when I started and was against buying anything so I do adult affliate marketing and havent done anything but made money ,not spent it. I've had offers to buy this or buy that but really I'm trying to make money not give it away. Fortunately I sold cars for years so I'm pretty good at sniffing out b.s. but we've all been taken before . I bought into YTB last year because I had a really,really good friend doing it and ramming it down my throat every time we talked so I spent the $500 bucks for the Starter Kit and another $65 for business cards . Not worth the paper it's written on. My daughter plays with the cards now. Needless to say after several paid rah-rah meetings and no cash ,or support or hope of making any money I lost some cash and a not so good friend. There are products you can sell or push online and not spend a dime to do it. And I am still seeking them out :). It seems like with a lot of them ,working isnt the problem _getting paid for your work IS. But no CC , that's out. Hard work and persistence is all a newbie like me needs. now it's time to make some real cash , it wont come to you, sometimes I hate the sight of my computer , but I know if I work hard I'll get paid and you will too.

    I don't think there are much tools online that are worth to pay for. Most of those you can get for free anyway...one way or the other. I would only pay for some elaborate AI script lol.

    Yes what you said it's true, but it all comes down to what people have more, time or money.
    Because if you can spend money buy the right tool and start doing some things you can get some good money real fast.
    But if you are broke and all you have its time , its hard till you get the 1st payment, after that is all natural you expect the money to come in every month.

    Some people have no patience when they see a lot of opportunities..well to all newbies - be patience and take your time in learning. Better to start safe and slow rather than losing $$ and confidence in making cash online. Cheers!
