    Hey guys,

    just wanna some inspiration. I'm at the beginning of my way to build
    really solid online business.. No 'get rich quick method', blackhat or something.
    Only valued content for my customers.

    I have some budget to start and want build a list at first.

    Any tips or advice? Thx :)

    You need an idea and the ability to execute it.

    Make sure there's a market for your idea. Your idea doesn't need to be original.

    Start with learning and mastering web languages such as HTML. Most of us probably did early in our careers when the likes of Joomla, Wordpress and so on didn't exist.

    Make an effort to do this. Some may disagree with me, but learning how to code is much more valuable than the ability to setup a Wordpress blog.

    I found some BST that wasnt familiar in my country and started to resel it.
    Cost me nothing becouse in that time those kind of services were a secret for most of the people and the tech writers wanted to write about it, so it went viral..

    You dont really need money for your first IM $$, you only need to focus on one thing

    Most people who are successful have had a lot of failures, myself included. I started off doing adsense sites and almost 10 years later I don't even have an adsense account.
