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!
