    Hey guys im 17 years old and a little bit of backround story, i haven't been in school for 2 years and all this time i've spent thousands of hours on the computer doing nothing and slacking around (gaming)
    Our family is suffering a bit being money tight having me doing nothing around and i really want to provide for my family to ease this.
    Plese dont rant that everything is there (information) YES i know its there but i don't have the best ability to know where to start.

    I have good general idea of the internet, how to use the computer due to me being a very active pc user since age 10

    So if anyone would kindly point me some directions, 1. I am willing to spend hours and hours if needed because i got nothing else to do either. 2. I can invest some money but
    i cannot invest hundreds or thousands.

    Sorry i know there might be a lot of these kind of posts, i am not trying to slack i just need some directions where to start and go.

    Thanks in forward! And sorry again

    Get a Job. Simple.
    Sorry but you have spent 2 years on your arse. Time to get up, go out and get a job.
    Come back when your families financial situation is sorted.

    If you want to work online then read the forums and select some methods to try, there are many good threads.
    Don't expect spoon-feeding and don't imagine you will start earning good money overnight.
    It takes time and dedication. That is why it is probably better to get an offline Job NOW.

    Honestly bud there are threads like these everyday just search on BHW for "where+to+start" and read read read just like all of us had to. If you need cash now better get a job first and do IM when you ger home.

    Sometimes you HAVE to accept the shit jobs to pay the bills.
    There must be something you are capable of doing even if it is low paid.

    Anyway, start read these threads:

    it depends what are willing to do? and more importantly what can you possibly do anyway at all? I would try to get an apprentice ship done first. you are only 17 boy

    Try this in Finland, you can make some quick buck:

    1) Find a product in your countries popular classified website which is low priced below the potential value of the product and has less competition.


    Example, I found a Macbook in a site called Dubizzle(Dubai) which was selling around 900 AED by the person who listed the ad. The thing i found was the description and the headline was not catchy and the product was not selling hot for him.


    2) Contact the person who has listed the product.


    I contacted the person and closed the Macbook for 830 AED per piece from the seller and had him home deliver 2 Macbooks to my home.


    3) List the product with attractive heading and excellent description. (hint: the person viewing your ad should think that the product is your own personal product that you have put up for sale and that he is not dealing with a company)


    I posted the ad for Macbook on the same classified website but with catchy heading and attractive description, i wrote in such a way that people reading will consider it as legit and want to enquire about it.


    4) Post the product with the potential selling price.


    After writing attractive title and description, i posted the Macbook for 1650 AED.


    5) Talk to people with passion when answering enquiries.


    It will just be a 2 minute call, so put your passion into it when explaining the product, people like that. I end up converting 90 % of all the calls i get.


    6) Fix a meeting place and deliver the product.


    I usually ask them to come to my place and collect the product. They come and collect the product and i have made 820 AED (215 USD) profit in 10 mins, just sell 2 Macbooks in a day and bank in 430 USD with 20 mins of work.


    7) Rinse and repeat.


    I place another order from the supplier and then repeat the steps from 1 to 6.

    Anyone can make a quick buck out of this, just be clever and play it smart. All you need is some people skills and the willingness to put in some effort. It is time for you to take action, go gettem.

    Caution: I always meet the supplier face to face and pay him by cash.


    Edit: Right now, i am no longer doing this as i have moved on to bigger things but i am sure it works.

    Finland must be paradise then:

    No dirty cars
    No dirty windows
    The grass never gets long
    Nobody ever needs newspapers or milk
    Supermarket shelves never get empty
    Supermarket checkouts are all automated

    I totally agree with W130SN.

    Get a job
    Any job
    Even a part time job.

    That will help to cure your first problem - laziness (I mean that in a constructive way).

    Then you can use half the money to help your family immediately.
    And use the other half to fund your IM work (which will take time to generate revenue anyway).

    lol Tell me what bigger things you have moved onto.
    I realise you are trying to help but it is obvious you never actually did this.

    I have done this really. These steps come out of my own experience and not out of my imagination lol.

    I am working on a wholesale project in the UAE.

    So your supplier was happy to sell you low volume (2 units at a time) and he was happy that you listed on the same marketplace that he advertised and you offered his products at double the price?
    Why didn't people buy direct from him?
    It looks to me like you read it somewhere.
    The method does work but it isn't as straightforward as the way you have written it.

    Anyway I don't want to argue with you.
    Just surprised that you gave up on a method that makes you "820 AED (215 USD) profit in 10 mins"

    I am also surprised you don't pay your article writers more

    and that only a month ago you were asking how to make $500 p/d

    I will post a link to my suppliers ad: http://goo.gl/ycIF7a

    He has written better on this ad, i could not find the old ads which i saw where the description is just 4 lines with no elaborate explanation.

    He has his own computer shop. He did have some sales but keeps low margin.

    What he makes by selling 4 macs i make by selling one.

    Btw, he is now a good friend of mine. Since i have stopped doing it, i have let him know about my sales using his product.

    I got some cheap man power.

    I wanted to make it online and am currently building on it, i have about 5 YT channels which are starting to do well.

    Btw, you have excellent detective skills. Peace!!!
