    Hello!

    First of all, I would like to say Thank you everyone who contributes to this forum.

    I'll give a short introduction of myself.
    I am 28 years old and I live in Norway, I have a 9-5 or it is actually shifts, so I work all around the clock, but my job contains a lot of driving and so on. Last winter my back could not handle all the driving and the "in and outs" of the car, so it prolapsed. Turns out that all the driving have teared on my spine and I have been off work for 5 months. My boss will not buy a new carseat so I am stuck with a "low tier" carseat and I know I will just tear more on my back. So I have decided that I have to try to build something for myself.
    I am an entrepreneur at mind, so it is just a matter of time before I find what will make me a business owner.

    "To make money you need money" and "Those with a lot of cash, have it easier to make more money"
    This is where I fail. I am not "rich", yet.
    But I have some money to invest. I just need to find the right stuff to invest in.

    What is my goal in the future?
    I want to make 5000 USD a month, stable.
    That will not make me rich here in Norway, but it is a decent income. Bare in mind that one liter of gas costs almost 2 USD. And lets not talk about what a car cost :p

    What is my goals before that?
    I want to make 5 USD before September ends. And I want to make the ROI as fast as possible. Hopefully in December, if I get traffic.

    My plan:
    The first of my plan is to have a few more plans.
    This means that I will not put all my apples in one basket. I will try to do different things, like different niches.

    I use to say: "We follow plan A, when S*** hits the fan, we go over to plan B, when that don't work out, we go to plan C" And usually I get the response "What is plan C ?" And then I respond "Improvise".

    So what have I done so far beside learning?

    I bought my first domain and made a wordpress blog.
    Created IG account, FB site and a twitter account.
    I even tried to promote a post with a blog article on FB. Just to try. Spent 2 USD on it.
    I have written a few blog posts, where one of the posts is 1000+ words, the rest is 400.
    I put up a disclaimer page, a private policy, a about page and a contact page
    I applied for Ali Express affiliate program, and got accepted.

    I think I would be able to monetize the page selling stuff I picked out from Ali Express. I just have to figure out how to set it up properly. I see most of the plugins cost money, so I want to be sure what kind of plugin I am going for. I don't think I will do drop shipping since I want people to go onto the Ali Express site so they can browse more products and possibly buy more.

    Do you think that this is a smart approach?

    I have not yet put so much effort into the other niches because I want to learn this Ali Express stuff so it is "faster" to put up the rest of the niches later. I also don't know much about ranking in google and get traffic, but for now I think the #1 priority should be to getting my niches out there and then venture into the SEO world and getting all the traffic.

    -Six

    So many journeys, just focus on one. I was in your spot doing multiple journeys at once and I realized that focusing on one at one time is a lot better.

    So just have one journey and just focus on that one only. Will help a lot when you are just starting out.

    Thank you for your replay!

    Maybe I wrote the post wrong. I am going to focus on this one website and how stuff works, and then start on the next niche, it may be a month til I get to the second niche. Only time will show. But I agree, I will focus on just this website to start with. So thanks again :)
