    I'm from Asia.
    As you know, it's usually common for teenagers like me (I'm 20 this year) to still live with their parents till they are married - that's when they buy their own home or become officially emancipated.

    My family is relatively "poor" but we manage to pay our bills and such.
    Unfortunately, I just heard from my local news that the factory my mom is working at is going to be closed down at the end of 2010.

    Worststill, she is helping to pay the house mortgage and some of the bills. My dad helps to pay the main bills (like electrical and such).

    So yeah, it's gonna be a 1-year goal. I currently have 5.5K in my bank from my Clickbank earnings. So I need to start a website asap or start selling my own ebooks and learn all the SEO techniques and succeed within 1-year.. or my family and I will be living in the streets.

    Wish me luck!

    Good luck dude... and honestly, with 5k in the bank, you won't get any problem outsourcing/expanding what you already do ;)

    With a couple hundred dollars you could be posting on CL and making that CPA money... I don't know what your guys bills add up to, but you should be able to cover it with a strong CL campaign and some decent CPA networks.

    Thanks for the reply, bro.
    But can you explain to me or is there any tutorial on it?
    I've never attempted CL before...

    There is a whole section about it on this forum. Look in "making money" then chhose "Craigslist". There are probably 50 methods in there that explain how to monetize CL.

    Use Craigslist. Learning curve is one month (heck, I just learned about it in the beginning of July, and I already understand most of it)

    Also, if you are desperate for money, I recommend professional20's method for some extra cash, but I'm not sure if checks get sent to China, so ask him about it.

    It's hard living in China.

    Move to America.

    CPA networks should accept you with ease. Plus, poverty in the U.S. isn't as bad as poverty in China.

    I've been to Shanghai, and almost every block in the city has AT LEAST 10 homeless people.

    Thanks for the replies.

    LoL, well I'm not from China :D

    I'm from Singapore - standard of living here is very high.
    A small house (3-room apartment) cost roughly around S$100,000. So it's around US$70,000.
    Cars are around that prices too. Education is expensive too.. so yeah..

    Whoops.
    I somehow assumed you were from China - sorry.

    I would stay in Singapore if I were you; I heard it's a very safe and wonderful place.

    It's on my travel list.

    Uhh ... with $5.5K Move to Manilla ... have the biggest home there, and servants, and girls to do whatEVER you want ...uh ... run a cam ho studio out of your home for "play money". No worries, Man.

    If you are not good with that idea ... sincerly, I wish you much luck
    and I am sure you will do great if you've already done 5.5K on CB.
