As some of you know I posted on problems with my girlfriend where I have had to moved out. Check the history of my other thread but basically she didn't believe in me or respected me even though I made a very decent living with IM, paid bills, cleaned up the house and was an overall pretty good. She said I did everything right. Anyways, I moved out while she was on vacation and we've only talked once since then. I left her the other stuff including my friends (who were our friends). During that time my IM took a dive. What I was doing was a derivative business (relied on another business) which tanked and so did my niche. Gone. Their company folded (high high pay outs) so my stuff is less effective. Also, my sister passed away so I've been dealing with funeral costs and all (I live 2,000 miles from my home). So now I live in a small room, little to no income, live long from home with no friends and with half of my immediate family gone. I feel shitty, abandoned and alone. Short of living on the street, begging for food, this is as low as I think someone can get. However, I have a plan and going to invest myself 150% into it. It's do or die and I invite you to follow. The upside is that I have saved a decent enough to live for run my operations for about 6 months. Rent, food, work expenses are all going to be stretched tight then. The room is a 8x8 with a Dell laptop, small desk and sleeping bag on the floor. I have only a few sweaters, jeans and loads of undershirts, undies and socks. My personal costs are low just $30 a week in food and nothing rationed for clothing or luxury products. Most of my costs are rent and paying for servers. My competition has a 3 months head start on me with tons of more coming. In the last month or so the competition really kicked up. So I'm pouring myself into SEO and social media. Every waking moment until I can get a foot hold or at least get into position. Three quarters of my funds will be depleted in 2-3 months, so I'm really banking on three things to surpass: highest quality content (better than my competition), excellent social media coverage, and moderate SEO foot hold (I can't afford a premium here so I'll have to settle for less). If my SM and SEO is good, I can see a return (yet a loss) and at least the major legwork is done. I'm anticipating recovering server costs and eventually future SEO work. I don't plan to recoup losses until after 7-8 months. I do have an emergency fund (in case I need hospital work, dental or something other dire) a gold watch from my grandfather. If I have to, I can sell it for some good cash to cover an emergency. I cherish it so its gotta be pretty dire to come down to that. Anyways, that's where I've been, where I am at and where I am going. Either I die or get rich trying. If folks are interested I can update this thread with specifics on what SEO I'm doing (progress and success), a poor man's diet, and overall life.
