    Hello Everyone!


    Just found BHW and I'm glad I did. Currently I work the good ol' 9-5, as a senior software analyst. I've gained many skills and knowledge through the years, and I've been doing this gig for about 10 years (zero experience in IM). When I look back and realize how long TEN years has truly been, it's disheartening. I don't want to keep working for someone else. I value my time way too much, and would rather be making money for myself using my own skills! Not filling the pockets of some other guy, using my skills.


    So here I am, looking for new ways to put my skills to work for me. I'm seeking information on how you guys started up from being where I am (total noob). So if you can PM me info, details, a shout out, a hello, even a GTFO, feel free! :)


    Thanks for having me!

    Thanks everyone! I do have one question. I understand buying domains, creating websites, selling ebooks... but who are u guys claiming to be? Are u creating personas/fake profiles, or are u truly creating multiple sites and revenue streams as yourselves?

    Welcome to BHW :)


    Piece of Advice : Do not indulge in providing fake profiles/information, think something which can work long term.

    I don't know how people find 9-5 boring, I find it hard to sit at home 9-5 and I prefer to sit at a work place

    Well Paranoid Android :D , Everybody wants to try out the other side of life.

    Anyways you could start out with a good keyword and a wordpress site. Then you could do some social bookmarking and profiles and eventually buy some services from the site

    Hey mjar01, welcome to the forum! I think most people hate the 9-5 rat race, especially when you work for someone else. I'm with you, lets get out of this rat race ;) If you need help, just shout! Good luck and have a great stay here on BHW

    Welcome to BHW mate! Glad you've found your way here and I'm sure you'll learn a lot of things here. :clap2: Just like you, I was in the same situation a year ago. I am into a 9-5 job and I come to the point and realize that I'm so tired doing it. My bread and butter after quitting my job is my blog and some freelance jobs online. Up to now, I'm still here, doing good and earning better without stress and without a boss.

    You can do it there are a lot of free resources here. Good luck mate! :)

    Hello Mjar01,

    I've just joined the BHW, and like yourself I have a similar profile as software dev with 10 yrs - also posted a newbie "say hi" post in the new members here tile "Hello, Can someone help the dare devil" :)

    BHW really is the ultimate resource and I'm also thinking in getting my hands dirty with SEO, although a tough nut to crack these days.

    Shout up, or linke me to share the experiences

    Cheers,
