    He will get what's coming to him. Him and his foreign trips which he shows off to his 9 year old daughter on the phone!!! I went to Paris last week blah blah. She asks why he doesn't take her and he says it's your mommys fault. His lexus cars his house by the beach. Not for long because karma is a bitch.

    That means alot to me. Thank you!

    About that app... Go back and tell them that you are going to build an app, and a website. Charge good money, and outsource the app. Just do it, who cares if you can't actually build an app.

    Wow, thats money some people here dream of earning every day, myself included. I haven't hit the 1000$ per day yet, but i am working hard on archiving it. It is just amazing to see how youve just signed up a couple weeks ago and you are already rocking it that big. I feel like that you have the right mindset for business and if you keep on working on that, improving your skills and keep on grinding then you have a good chance to become a big player in your field. After all, its just a numbers game in business. You can't get em' all but you certainly can increase your chances by.
    If i can recommend you some books that might help you on your journey:

    How to win friends and influence people by Dale Carnegie
    What everybody is saying by Joe Navarro
    & every book of Tony Robbins

    You are on the right path, i am happy for you and i am definetely curious about your next update! Keep Grinding!

    Amazing story, this will be the first thread I am keeping an eye on!

    Great to see people take their life serious and taking matter into their own hands while keeping it classy, huge respects for your initiative and passion!

    Keep it up, you earned my deepest respect, if that is worth something :)

    Besides that, all the best to you and your kids.

    I'll be following your thread :)

    Did you learn web design/programming by yourself?

    Do you code the websites yourself or for your clients a well set wordpress site is enough?

    Hey DD, you're giving away you service for practically nothing so STOP. How about $100 a page? Your hourly rate will be pennies per hour, I mean, web design AND content? Usually they provide the content. Hope you have a contract stipulating exactly what they are going to get from you and what they're not going to get. You can't let them come back to you for endless revisions, etc., get my point?
    But if you insist then at least do it right. The business model of giving away the website demands they must host their website with you. That's where you make back the money. They have to pay you a monthly fee for hosting and maintenance.

    After they are loving the beautiful website that you created for them now you ask them how is their potential customer going to find their beautiful website from the huge world wide web? That's when you offer SEO to them for more ka-ching.

    Keep landing those web design gigs, it's just the foot in the door and usually the hardest part.

    Good luck, we're all cheering for you.

    This is the type of mindset I want in a girl when I marry.

    And tbh, schools and colleges are not worth it. They are just there to take up the parents money and put both the kid and the parent into student loan debt. Just not worth it imo. 80% of the kids nowadays faces student loan debt and a job that makes them tired throughout the day. I would say you have done good as you didn't go extreme means of arranging money to put your girl in school through any means. Be practical like you are now and you will see that school and colleges are actually not worth the time invested and the hard earned money of the parents.

    And yes remember NEVER ever give your soul, feelings and whatever to your partner or if you will settle again in future. There can always come a time that can make all the love and feelings go down the sink in an instant. Business and Money are the two MOST important thing in one's life and should always be like this which is why a security aka a prenup is always necessary like I have planned to get one from the girl that I marry in future.

    The hard thing I learned in life is that you just can't trust anyone other than your shadow!

    I DID IT!!!! Omg two days of breaking my back, no lunch and sleeping for 4 hours proved fruitful after all!!!!

    Money fucking made: SR 29,000 ($ 7,754)

    What and how in the world did it happen?
    In meeting no. 4 I met with the owner of the restaurant who was lady and we got along well. So today at 9am she calls me up and put me through with her cousin who has just opened up a dental clinic. He needs a website and everything (SEO,social media, online reputation management - the works basically)

    I'm good with websites (wordpress) but Im not confident with ORM or SEO since I know bits about it but never put it into practice. I shall outsource this.

    Next, he needs a company to do this.

    I need a commercial registration and I sought advice from Google lol. That's one thing guys, people here ask all sorts of questions that are found on Google and it sort of wastes time of others. Search yourself and what you can't find for the sake of God, then ask!!!

    Commercial registration: I looked online and in Wyoming you can register a company for mere $100. So I called my friend in the US and asked him to register it for me. Took a few hours and it was done. So now I have a company in the US for which I must pay taxes for but that's ok. This is the beginning of my saga. It will be absolutely awesome!!!

    I made a proposal and I'm attaching it to this thread. Please do not misuse the information there as it could be detrimental to me :)

    I just came back home after a gruelling session of 3 hours whereby all he spoke was about his love for cars, women and horses. In that order lol. That's alright, time is money and as long as he's spending the money I'm good.

    He signed the proposal and told me to come back on Monday to sign the contract.

    How do I feel?
    I cried alot today out of sheer happiness and knowing that I bloody have my back!!!
    @EternalFun,I totally agree with everything you said. You also said not to trust anything but your own shadow but how can i trust even my shadow when I have to work hard for that too? Your shadow doesn't show if you don't go and walk in the sunlight. Hard work yet again :)

    I appreciate all your concern and such stellar support. I shall be ending my journey with this right here with a silent prayer of thanks and I'm full of gratitude to you all. Thank you BHW. You helped me regain my lost freedom.

    Sorry but I'm trying to attach my proposal to this thread. If I can't I'll just post the screenshots of it but I will show it to you all for improvement next time.

    And it's finally over!!! Thank you so much for your support.

    Applied that strategy my friend :) and thank you for telling me.

    I do nothing except set up a WordPress website for them.

    It's just the beginning. Don't let that determination go sideways one bit. It's very hard for motivation to come by.

    You've saved up enough for a lawyer. Now go out and save up enough for a life.

    You can do this. You will do this.

    I am so proud of you.

    Thank you! You see, life is strange and it's something we all figure out as we go along. I have so much harshness in 30 years that it's helped me to be a realist. I walk forward and if I look back I will fall. Can't let that happen :)

    I'm not touching the rest until I know for a fact that it'll be utilised in making more. I have to pay the lawyer and I'm not stopping. It's only just begun :rolleyes: and thank you for such uplifting words. ❤
