    1.0 Introduction for who cares

    I have experience in internet marketing, I have tested many things. Too keep it short, from SEO, PPC facebook and adwords, to social traffic. I used adsense, content locking, clickbank and cpa for monetizing. I have given companies advice on how to do their bussiness online. I have made 0 - 4000 euros online a month. Had some good luck, some bad luck, but never a steady income. I know its possible since I have been there.

    1.2 My Problems

    I have motivational issues. I have to many ideas. I have problems with keeping my head in one project at a time. Problems with focussing. My mom has a shitty dissease, money issues had home, thats why I have a fulltime dayjob. I just got out of a 2 year relationship, girlfriend cheated a few times and was just a shitty person but I sticked with her too long. I also ditched my sites or didnt spend any attention to them.

    1.3 Health

    I was a little overweight which at my top was 99 kilos 3 years ago and right now I am at 78 kilos. I try to focus on living a healthy life, so good food and less alcohol, which was a little hard with the issues I had with my ex untill hopefully now.

    2.0 Earnings right now and My Goal

    I work a shitty job, in 2 shifts but it pays OK, since I have no schools finished or whatever. So what do I earn here is what makes my goal more clear. A little breakdown below.

    What I make with my dayjob a week, all things are in euros.

    Before Taxes
    Wage: 460.92
    Holiday Money Etc: 35.20 + 41.64 + 2.4

    Making a wooping total of: 540.16 a week or 540.16 x 52 / 12 = 2340.69 a month before taxes.

    My goals is my wage x1.5 (thats the point where I quit my job), which means 2340.69x1.5 = 3510 euros a month before taxes.

    My mom has a rare illness and doesnt have a lott of energy and she is cutt of from society and doesnt get any help from our goverment since the dissease is rare, but her goal is to get what she needs and that is atleast 1250 euros a month to live a good but simple life and pay her mortgage on the house we live in etc.

    So our common goal = 4760 euros a month OMG but before taxes.

    3.0 The Plan

    The plan will be divided by 2 persons and a shared plan. We will be focussing for now mainly on adsense, later on I might hop onto old projects facebook ppc or integrate other models in the site if its fits. Later on I will also finish ideas which I still have laying around or add new projects, but I will need to quit my job before I have time to do this.

    Me

    Project me.A
    Finish a site I have already started, a discount/coupon whatever website in a small niche. Which turned out to be a big one allready had articles ordered, so I have allready like 25k words laying around and not put on the website at all.

    Project me.B
    Build 3 new websites containing atleast 25 articles. Focussing on easy to rank long tail keywords. Every website in one niche so I have the option to expend.

    Project me.C
    Overcome my fears and get myself again in the local market to offer allround help to bussinesses online and offline, mainly marketing related. This project will also be connected to a Project D which will be added later on.


    Mom

    I will first need to explain my mom how everything works, I started with thats, but its hard since she isnt realy technical and has a huge handicap because of her illness. I do however have a plan for her, I just need to get it to work.

    Project mom.A
    Training so she can work alone on the computer, I will teach her how to use "dragon" a program which she can use to use her voice for commands instead of typing or using the mouse. This is a must or else she couldnt do more than an hour of working a day.

    Project mom.B
    Her very own first website in our native language or 2 other languages she can do without any problems. I will select the niche.

    Project mom.C
    Her second website where she can write about things she actualy likes, dont know how to monetize this yet if ever. Not realy important.

    Shared Project Mom+Me

    This will be projects where we will be working on together, they will focus on things we have to do or living in, more some sort of blog.

    Project momme.A
    A site or blog or both together about saving money, I know a lott about this topic and I think its fun to help people save money. Think about cooking, saving on phone bills etc etc... Everything that comes to mind.


    4.0 Monetary Goals

    This is just money from the projects where starting here. I still make some money from old projects but they wont be counted here.

    Mom
    $2 a day
    $10 a day
    $25 a day
    1250 a month

    Me
    $5 a day
    $250 a month
    $500 a month
    $1000 a month
    2500 a month
    3510 a month

    Shared Goals = shared profits

    If I reach 1000$ extra a month with my websites and my mom atleast 500$ I will move out of my moms house.

    Have a great day the journey will start tomorow

    The plan for tommorow will be the following everything what wont be completed will be put on the next day but I try to get it all done. Or dont add to many tasks so I atleast can complete them.

    Me

    - Clean my workspace/room
    - Clean my laptop
    - Go to the gym
    - Get my work files organized (havent realy done a thing for the last 6 months)
    - Check if my programs still work LTP etc.
    - I will look for 2-3 hours into some niches, keywords, competition. (have to wait for money since I will be ordering articles to start the project, I find this easier)
    - Make a start finishing things on photoshop for Project me.A
    - Getting things ready for wednesday


    Mom

    - I will explain her the plan so she can prepare for wednesday, where her training will start.


    Thats it.

    It will take a while before any money will come in, but thats ok.

    It sounds like a bit more difficult being two. The fact that you have to train your mom sounds like an extra hurdle. I hope she is disciplined enough, and that this project does not lead to friction between you two. Have you thought about having her blog about the disease? Medical keywords can be very profitable.

    In any case. I wish you both success.

    And here's a hint to deal with motivational problems.

    If you have a to do list, run it through the list randomizer on http://www.random.org/ whenever you have the time to work. Then do what ever comes up on top. This prevents you from cherry-picking the tasks that seem the easiest to you.

    This has to be a first, a journey thread with you mom.

    Nevertheless, I wish you the best of luck and hopefully you'll make it. Keep working hard and keep in mind why you are doing this.

    And for the sake of everything that is good in this world, if you start earning money faster, do give some of it to your mom, at least until she gets to making money.

    Thanks for the replies and input.

    Well its hard but it is the only option, since because of her illness she is holding us all back. which offcourse isn't her fault but something has to be done and after 5 years or so, she also sees this as the only legal way to get rid of our problems. It could lead to friction and it will since she has given up hope a little, but I think I can get us trough this. I have thought about her blogging about it and it will be her second project, she thinks its important, but its not a project focussed on money, there isnt realy a market for it anyways and my mom wouldnt be to happy with it, by making money of this. But I have another Idea in my ideas list which can be marketed and help people, but its something for later. Thanks a lott!

    Thats realy cool! And I will use that inmediately tommorow :).

    Haha indeed I havent seen anything like it either and its a little strange, but yeah we gotto try right, too bad to not use all the knowlegde and things I have learned in the last 8 years.

    The reason why I live at home now is because of this, I realy want to move, but instead of spending money on my own place I decided to keep it here and support so we can all can come better out of it. But if theres enough money comming in from my dayjob and IM one of the first things ill do is getting out of my mom's home. I realy need to have my own space, so I can shut off from other people if I want to. And I will still be in the neighbourhood if anything goes wrong. And there will be enough money then for all of us.

    But if this isnt working out as planned I will have to leave, since if I cannot do my IM work there wont change anything ever and I wont be able to support at all.

    It all sounds really dramatic, but actualy I am really positive about this.

    Good luck man.

    As someone else mentioned, you mom could blog about her illness

    In order to keep up the work spirit you should make a masterplan and then break it up to tasks.

    Then give yourself a task everyday that must be completed and it relevant for the masterplan

    Now that's an original journey, keep us updated and the best of luck to both of you!

    As far as procrastination / motivational issues go, keep a list of what you want to get done and keep track of how much time you spend on each aspect of your endeavors (toggl.com is great for this).

    This is a very original and interesting journey indeed! Maybe documenting this experience in the form of an active blog would be a direction you could take. I mean if we find it interesting (and are pulling for you to succeed), I'm sure many others would as well. Good luck and I look forward to seeing you two surpass your goals!

    One tip for motivation: imagine your future self is talking to you, you in 5 years, imagine what he will tell you, you better hope he tells you nice words.

    I will tell her, she wouldn't probably understand what I am talking about. Huh forum...? whats a forum

    Maybe I should make a little competition out of it. For the fun of it, might keep her motivated too.

    Yes thats what I am going to do. But first I need to settle down on 1 project instead of 20 projects running trough my head. Thanks!

    I will look into toggl haven't heard of it before! What works good for me is working together with some one else as well. So a friend comes over who needs to learn for school or something, I did this a while with my girlfriend, it works great. But alone works great too. I dont play games, so thats a big time saver.

    Thats maybe even an interesting idea. But I am afraid I should have to work a little on my english skills. Thanks for the input! Realy love it!

    I am afraid he would kick me in the balls for not continuing my succesfull projects on my 18th, 7 years ago. I made lots of mistakes but maybe that was all needed, to get to a surtain point.

    I was thinking maybe documenting this journey won't be such a bad idea. You are starting at a pretty low point with the illness and you breakup, if you could overcome that and end up making money (which I hope you do) you would have a pretty great rags/sh*t life to riches story.....some channel might pick it up for a documentary...OR you can start a blog documenting this journey. I'm sure you will get traffic if you could spread the word as yours is a unique journey.

    Best of luck

    Yes it could become a nice story, well lets see first how it all turns out. But whatever happens I dont want my name or face connected to anything I do. I am not realy into that.

    I hope I can motivate her enough, thats going to be the hard part! Thanks

    ------------ Update ------------
    So this was my plan for today:


    Me

    - Clean my workspace/room
    - Done, its nice and clean
    - Clean my laptop
    - Done, laptop is running smooth, my desktop was full with crap. Virus scan spyware check and good to go!
    - Go to the gym
    - One hour doing cardio in the gym, and half an hour running outside, just started again. And I hate to do the useless muscles workouts :).
    - Get my work files organized (havent realy done a thing for the last 6 months)
    - Started and I am halfway trough
    - Check if my programs still work LTP etc. -
    Done
    - I will look for 2-3 hours into some niches, keywords, competition. (have to wait for money since I will be ordering articles to start the project, I find this easier) -
    Not completed
    - Make a start finishing things on photoshop for Project me.A
    - Not completed
    - Getting things ready for wednesday
    - Not completed

    Mom

    - I will explain her the plan so she can prepare for wednesday, where her training will start.
    - I did explain what we will do, but I will have to continue this tommorow, she is excited in some sort of way, but also afraid, but I don't want to go into to much details.

    The plan did not work out as planned, because I had to go do a few things with mom that where neccesary, anyways, things have moved to tommorow. The first steps where needed before I could even start at all and these I have completed and took some time. Better start prepared then start doing stuff in the crappy room your in. Now I will think a little about what I will do tomorow and see how much energy mom has, or else I will start without her and having a headstart in this project haha.

    So I am not realy happy about today, I had to do a few things that I hadn't planned but that happens. But the mistake after this was not getting right back on work, instead I got distracted and was annoyed by the fact I couldn't do anything for 5 hours sitting and waiting in a hospital. But the real problem is, I didnt continue right away after it and was complaining in my head about the missed time, which costed even more time..

    Time for me to get my 7,5 hours rest and get back on the horse tomorow after morning rituals.

    Will update tomorow with the plan for tomorow or maybe the next comming days.
