    I'm turning 23 years old, soon.

    I've figured out that I feel behind in life and made the decision to open a BHW account. I've visited the forum for years, so I'm what's called a lurker.

    I live in a Latin country, I sometimes miss type words and have weird ways of expression. Sorry about that.

    Short background

    I have approx 8 years of experience in digital marketing. I started as a graphic / web designer.

    I spent most of my time developing projects for others. Logos, web directories, dropshipping stores, business websites, banners, AdWords/Fb campaigns, SEO campaigns, email campaigns, landing pages, funnels, t-shirts design, visit cards, etc. ; you name it.

    I have expertise in almost every IM field but never started my own project. Frustrating.

    I always made enough just to live ok-ish, never went full throttle, even if there was enough reason to do it.

    I hit rock bottom many times when I had a break-up after 3 years, when my dad got sick, when I went in debt. The good part is that I always remained emotionally stable, never had suicidal thoughts, I enjoy life.

    Describe yourself

    My entire life I was curious. That conducted to what I called paralyzed by information syndrome.

    I watched too much youtube. For educational purposes at first then for entertainment. Which lead to a lot of wasted time, and knowledge about why Hampton Brandon fought Ice Poseidon, how Ben Shapiro is wrecking feminists, stupid memes from Dolan Dark, have you ever done DMT tho at 3 am by Joe Rogan and so on over the years since 2010.

    I started reading because of Jordan Peterson. I read 20-30 books this year about psychology and philosophy.

    I like genuine novels with meaning from authors like Tolstoi and Dostoyevsky; stoicism books from Epictetus, Seneca, and M. Aurelius; psychological theories about the meaning of life from Freud and Viktor Frankl; British philosophical writers like Alan Watts and James Allen and so on.

    I practiced sports my entire life: football, tennis, handball, volleyball, table tennis etc. even improvised hockey back when I was a kind and the winters were strong and cold.

    I've had a period with cold showers and no-fap and I'm on my way back to it.

    Where I'm now and what's the plan

    Two months left of this year. And I want to close the year on five figures from almost zero.

    I've generated platforms and traffic for others my entire life. I will do it for me now.

    I picked a specific niche website(90% completed). I master the niche and want to focus only on it.

    As I don't have enough time for SEO, paid ads it's the way to go. Facebook and AdWords campaigns.

    I will do affiliate marketing for three big companies that compete to each other. I find it more effective and less time consuming than delivering services( I've dealt with clients to much).

    Hopefully, I will be able to help and inspire others, not with words but with taking action, while learning more from each one of you. Respect and salute everyone!

    I totally agree. Thank you proxygo, great to receive a warm welcome from reputable members. You're a true example of consistency.

    Merci, I will have to open a journal to keep myself accountable soon. Good luck!

    By looking how your thread is so decent and well organized, You truly must be very good designer.

    Also this was best introduction thread I’ve ever read.
    You’re very intelligent and smart by looking everything you’ve read of books and your interests and the way of your thinking. I believe you’ll achieve your goals easily.

    Welcome bro, nice to have people like you around :)

    It's hard for me to express my exact thoughts in English, as it is for every non-native speaker.

    I have some type of OCD when it comes to writing. I spend a lot of time trying to write articulately. I appreciate corrections from any member, it helps me learn quicker.

    I force myself to write in this manner to cure my OCD even if it takes longer.

    Thanks for welcoming me Aaric, wish you good luck too!

    My intuition says that we somehow have the same interests. I'm also happy to have people like you around, it means I'm in the right place.

    My end goal is to become a better version of myself each day, and we'll see from there as my way of thinking will be in a continuous transformation. I did however promised to myself to keep my principles and do always what's right not what's easy.

    Best of luck mate, will see you around!

    Your right, my response was not cool. Under duress at the time.
    What i meant to say is pay the price and study hard, and give to people here and earn respect.
    What you give here comes back 100X as in. Peace
