My Story, It is quite long sorry. Hello. My name is Brian. I've created this thread to inspire me & keep me motivated. As have many others from what I have seen. I have been looking into IM for some time now. However the job I used to have was pretty good. Between that & my personal life I was left with little time to put any real work into it. But last September I was in a car accident that left me paralyzed from the waste down. Thankfully I had a job at the time that allowed me to keep working. I was a sales rep for Lilyann cabinets. Mostly it involved phone sales work. I also designed with 20/20 auto cad. Which I have my own hacked 9.0 version. The newest version out last time I checked. The program itself is worth thousands. The one IM marketing aspect I did do was Craig's list. I became pretty good at posting ads. But my boss was a character & I ended up quitting because he stole almost 2k in commissions from me & gave them to his son (family owned company). So now I have all the time in the world to do IM as I have no job & my personal life is pretty much non-existent now. I have been a computer savvy person my whole life. When I was 10-14 I built clan websites for video games like Diablo & other things like that off of pure html, as no real tools were available at that point. However that was 15 years ago & my knowledge has pretty much all slipped away. I am pretty smart & a fast learner at anything. Although I am a much better visual & hands on learner instead of reading, I have already learned a great deal from this forum. However it is jumbled & scattered information. There's no direct path & no real starting point. My income is very limited at this time & I have basically nothing to start up with. I would be able to buy a domain or two, but that would be it. I have to save about everything I have at this point to live on & keep my home. I have spent a lot of hours since I joined this forum reading & researching. I've seen a lot of ideas for ways to start with no money, but I've run into walls with many of them. Also a lot of them are just too old, or turn out to be something that isn't legit. I'm not looking for a miracle way, or a get rich quick scheme. I just want something that will pan out & do well for me. I don't care how much work it takes. But my knowledge is pretty noob. My Tools & knowledge Photoshop Web hosting with up to 5 domains (I have 2 domains which aren't built yet. One is my review blog) Familiar with the basics of word press & have Thesis 1.85 & a lot of other paid themes. Basic knowledge of how seo works (I've ranked a site on 3rd page of Google) Free VPN from VPNReactor & Cyberghost Auto Blogger Basic social media stuff (youtube, FB,Twitter) however I haven't done anything with them yet as far as IM goes. My current plan at the moment is to research more on BHW & see what my best options are. I have a few ideas from some of the posts on the forums. Here they are. Dots are replaced with commas. blackhatworld,co m/blackhat-seo/making-money/547380-how-i-made-realistic-100-per-day-using-free-methods,html (this & the second link are my 2 main ideas I want to try to start out) blackhatworld,co m/blackhat-seo/making-money/359445-easy-100-day-perfect-noobs,html blackhatworld,co m/blackhat-seo/making-money/408812-making-easy-money-great-noobs,html (wondering if this method still works well) I have an account on postloop that has been approved to start posting with a 4.10 rating. My current plan is do to that for half the day or more, until they payout in 6 days or so to get a little bit of extra start-up cash. While spending the other half of my day researching until I figure out exactly what I want to do. If anyone has any ideas or help for me it would be greatly appreciated. I'm willing to do whatever it takes, as this is probably my best & last chance to be really successful given my circumstances. If anyone has any better ideas for start up cash, or better methods I could start using right away to earn some money. Please point me in the right direction. I will be making daily updates to let you all know how things are going. Any help anyone can give me is greatly appreciated.
