    I've finally decided to create a real journey thread because I think it will force me to actually DO things rather than just speculating about them. I decided that I want to try making the same amount of money that I would in a part-time job for 2 months just to prove to myself that it really is possible to be my own employer.

    Part-time job is usually about 15 hours per week and at minimum wage for where I live it ends up being $1024.03 for 52 days. This puts me at about $20 per day which I think is very do-able.

    Let me share a little about myself. First off, the name I chose for this forum has nothing to do with me at all haha. I originally chose the name because I figured I would want to stay completely anonymous if I did any blackhat stuff. I've already contacted people on my personal Skype from this forum so it wouldn't be too hard to figure out anyways.

    My name is Brett and I just graduated high school. I've always wanted to be my own boss so BHW was the perfect place for me to start. I have skills in music, videography, editing, and a little bit of coding. Currently, I've been doing some marketing stuff for a service which is run by jon99 on the forum. We just launched the new website so I'm very excited to see where this goes. I might not count any income from that as it's more of a long-term investment, but we'll see where it goes.

    Alright, let's get started. I'll try updating this once daily but we'll see how that goes.

    I would pick a couple of things to try out instead of just one. When it comes to SEO, if you rush things without really knowing what to do, chances are you won't get there in time. Instead, why not pick a few things and try one after another?

    Day 1

    Starting out and expecting to see results but getting nothing is really hard. I think I've set up a few methods though that I will hopefully see profit from them by next week.

    3 things I'm focusing on:
    CPA/PPC/Clickbank with 2 sites in 2 completely different niches.
    A service that I'm running.
    Fiverr gigs that I hope to scale up in the future.

    This first website is a domain I just bought along with hosting. I haven't been able to edit it at all because when I go to the Wordpress admin page, it doesn't stop loading and sits at a white screen.

    The second website I just made as a subdomain as Wordpress. I might buy the .com because it's a quality name that I think I can grow.

    Haven't gotten any replies from businesses for my service.

    I'm outsourcing work for my fiverr gigs to a crowdsourcing website. I won't count it towards my expenses yet because I had money in there from the past and I also threw in some money from a Visa gift card.

    I can't post in the JV section yet but if anyone wants free hosting I'll go 50/50 on profits. PM me.

    Day 2

    Didn't abandon this thread yet, don't worry! I just had a graduation party last night and I probably won't get any work done until Monday. Bad timing on my part but hopefully I can get a few other things started.

    Suggestion from someone familiar with where you're at: don't log this day by day. Just like when you're trying to lose weight, you shouldn't weigh yourself every 15 minutes. Give it your best, give it a few months and log only when you have something to log! Just my 2 cents.
