    Some quick advice for the members on BHW that still live with their parents and are trying to create a STEADY income online.. Get your sh*t together and start making money before your time is out!

    Seriously.. I'm 23 years old now and I moved out since 6 months. It's amazing how expensive life is! I started with IM when I was 17 and I was fortunate enough to establish a STEADY income online during that time. I bought a house which I'm paying for with the money I make online but I just realized what would have happend now if I wouldn't have started IM back then. It's never too late to start I guess but when you're still living with your parents you don't need to worry about anything else besides your biz online.

    Just saying.. if you're still young, don't worry about a party you mis or a not being able to buy a new iphone. Invest your time and money online, with your eye on the future.
    Sure I could have bought a new iphone when I was 17 but I didn't. My allowance went to things like domains, seo, websites, etc. And of course not every penny you invest pays off, and yes you could have bought something else with that money but that's all part of the journey.

    Anyway, the easy way to say it: start now and live a free life later, or don't care and be ready to work your ass of everyday to fill someone else his pocket :D

    I'm still with my parents! Not at this moment by the way!

    I'm from holland and I'm on an intership to austria for 6 months but I will come back!
    I'm 19 years old now an d just started with the IM thing!

    Thanks for the info buddy, I'm still learning and trying some things. Didn't made much money yet but hopefully one day this will come.

    P.s. You probably wouldn't buy an Iphone 6 years ago.;) more like a Nokia with snake which you can drop a hundred times and still would be funtional.

    Lol xD point taken ... btw I'm from Belgium and I often go fishing in Holland. We're practically neighbours. Heard holland is even more expensive to live (except for the houses) so I guess you've still got a ton of work to do. Believe me man, it's all worth it in the end. I can continue sleeping in the morning when my friends have to get up early to go to work :p

    I would also suggest: If you're already making decent money to buy your luxury items before moving out. That way when you do, you're not like "I really fucking want that 55 inch TV but I have to pay bills..." Instead, get it before and when you move out all you're paying is rent, utilities, food and other standard costs.

    A car is never a bad investment! Forgot to mention it but don't forget to live a little bit :p
    It's just a matter of finding a balance between the 2. I didn't go to a lot of parties when I was 17 but now I do and I'm still 23 so nothing lost. FIn your case; you could spend 5k on your first car but you could also spend 3k, which still gets you a decent first car, and invest the remaining 2k in other things.
