    I'll be sharing my journey on bhw to proove that IM is doable even though you're on a 9 to 5 job.

    I'm currently working in the IT sector on a 9 to 5 job, which I enjoy. Although, I have realized that I might reach a point in my life when I want more freedom in my life. Being able to decide whether I want to work a 9 to 5 or continue doing IM as my main income is a choice that I want to be able to make. And there for, I'm doing this as an experiment to proove that anyone is fully capable of starting a second source of income even though you spend 8 hours at work 5 days a week. $100 might seem as a weak goal, but since I will spend most of my days working my full time job, this journey will take time.

    Patience is key, right?

    I bought the domain of my current amazon niche site on February the 28th and I got my first sale of $4 two days ago.

    I'll update this thread as my journey continues to $100 monthly income by June 2017.

    Great work my friend. As long as you're progressing, you're doing something right. People think that success come over night, but as you probably know by now, success comes with persistence and you may well have to wait a couple of months before bringing in the big bucks.

    For future updates I'd love to see updates on your income, SEO and maybe even content? Good luck Staaaahl!

    Haven't updated in a while and almost forgot that I once had posted this thread. I'll try to keep up with it and update it as often as possible.

    The progress has not been so promising and I've had to deload and think about what the next step with the site is. My conclusion was to start linking as I had already produced about 20k word in content.

    So what I have done since last time:
    -- Produced content, now at ~20k words
    - Started to scrape for expired domains to start building my PBN. Doing this with a friend so we can split the cost. Currently got 2 PBNs with great stats and it just got indexed and I've posted a link on both sites, so I'm waiting for the result of that.
    - Built a few links on our Web 2.0s which has decent stats (tf10-tf20), also sharing these with my friend.
    - I'm currently in the making of tiered web 2.0s that im building for a specific keyword I want to rank, since i haven't had much success with any of the big keywords in my niche, I'm trying this to see what it can do with my rankings. I'll explain this a little bit further down below.

    Tiered web 2.0s
    So what I'm doing is building 10+ web 2.0s for my specific keywords. Then building about 10 more to strengthen the link juice coming from those. I'll probably do this with scrapebox link spamming and see what kind of results it can give me.

    Current ranking:

    Right now it just focusing on building tiered web 2.0s and pumping out a silo page for a new product that I'll include in my authority site.
