Hey BlackHatter's I've been on this forum for a while (not posting much, but reading), and i'm finally ready to stop watching other succeed and finally take action myself. The reason i'm starting this journey (more specifically writing it down) is because i'm a big fan of Tony Robbins, and Eric Thomas (if you don't know him, look him up on YouTube, he's literally incredible) and one of the biggest concepts they stress is always writing down your goals, looking at them every day, and checking over your failures and success. Instead of doing it in a private journal, i want to do it here so other can possibly learn and take some idea's from what i'm doing to help themselves. The goal is simple: 10k a month profit consistently. I know this sounds big, and while i'm going to set micro goals i've always had the mentality that you either go big or go home. I don't just think i can achieve this goal, but i KNOW i can. The catch is i literally have no money, and currently have a rough college schedule that isn't allowing me to get a day job to fund the initial amount i'm going to need. I need to make money on my own time. So here's the plan: I'm currently a Communication major in my college and have done guest posting/freelance writing for a while now. I know the in's and out of the industry and have a good basis in sourcing my research and SEO principles. I know i can crank out 500 word articles of extremely high quality in around 30 min's. I'm going to use this skill to build capital so i can invest in an EBAY/Amazon business. I already have wholesaler's set up and have been watching the markets for a while now. The stitch is i need ideally 250-400$ to start, so that's where the article writing comes in. Currently, i've created an account on Iwriter, Posted a gig on Fiverr, and signed up for Text Broker. I like these sites because (aside from fiverr) I can write the articles completely on my own time. I know Iwriter isn't the best place to make money when you first start, but i know once i get to 30 reviews, i will have a rating good enough to put me in either premium or elite. If i can get to Elite, i can write 300 word articles for over 5$ which will be extremely worth my time. I will talk more about the Ebay/Amazon business once i get the initial capital, and i'll explain my strategy for sourcing products and selling them for more than the market price (I know this sounds crazy). I already have 5$ in my paypal account, so i'm going to consider it a head start and put it towards my initial investment. My micro goals right now are this: 1) Make at least 10$ a day through iwriter, textbroker, and fiverr until i reach 250 dollars. If anybody would like to add in, i'll appreciate it very much. But for now, lets get back to writing. I also want everyone to know that i love using parenthesis. Today's Stats: 5$ in my account 3.24$ pending in Iwriter 0$ in fiverr 0$ in TextBroker (waiting initial rating) Quote of the day "Go Big or Go Home"
