    Hello users of BHW, I've been a lurker for quite a while on this site and have learnt a lot of things, albeit all quite small but when put together paint a nice picture. Basically I've been trying bits and bobs here and there but not doing anything specific or in detail, up until today.

    Since it is a journal the first thing I will talk about is myself.

    Firstly I am 18 years old studying Business and Law at A level.
    I have had a completely different lifestyle to the people around me a ndbrought up in a completely different way to what my friends seem to think. This has always been an annoying impact on my life, but sod all the nagging, as I'm getting older I'm starting to realise and prioritise what's important and what isn't.
    The reason for that little bit of background knowledge is because the main thing this site has taught me is I need to have the right mindset and mentality in things I go about which has always hindered me at times.

    As i'm starting to write I feel I could talk forever but I will try to keep it clear and precise.

    Recently the last 3 years everything has been going down the drain, slowly I started smoking weed, which FUCKED me up hard, but I was glad it happened as it made me rethink where my life was heading and put me in the position I am now. Although I got over the problem and can control it now, and don't let it affect my life it screwed me over for my AS levels increasing my workload for the resits recently but also having to drop another subject because I simply couldn't do 3 at the time, meaning I have to wait around for an extra year to do more AS levels before university.

    Also my family is fucked, I am holding the thin threads together for the moment but after long discussions with the parents, I have realised the best thing is if we seperated living our own lives but staying in touch, I don't want to really go into detail over this.

    So why am I so late to act? Well I have had my exams and as said earlier had plenty of exams to learn for, and after that I have been pretty occupied but have been planning to start this for quite some time.

    There are other small details that I want to have done but that's not really important.

    Woah that went on for longer than I wanted it to and it was all pretty vague.

    Ok so I'll make it easier now bullet points for this:

    My Goals:

    I have a year and a half until uni and in that time my long-term goals are;

    1. Earning £2,500 a month consistently
    2. Be driving, have all new clothes/stuff for uni
    3. Receive A,A for Business & Law and ABB for AS next year
    4. Be able to support my family & move them onto the next step as well
    5. Be going gym 3-4 times a week and get HENCH

    Now you might be thinking, ok he's got plans but he'll be lazy and just give up like 95% of people, but thats what I seem to thrive on, people underestimating me. Firstly I am motivated by the situation in my family, as I have been given a great childhood and they have tried for me throughout their entire life as parents and I want them to be happy cause then I feel free and can do things for myself. Secondly the introduction of my new baby sister into the family(well she's 3 now) and I want her to never have to experience some of the things I have, but also realise you have to experience things you won't like for character but I'd rather it not at the extreme way I was. Also shes one of the only reasons I wake up with a smile on my face and she loves me the most, but hey who wouldnt? :p

    haha I'm talking too much again.

    Ok the final part is how I wish to achieve this:

    Im a large facebook & youtube user, and since discovering this website have been noticing the trends that go on, such as facebooks new become a fan to see ___ pages, so I have best knowledge of that so over this course of the week I am going to set up a plan but in rough it is:

    1. Get into CPA companies
    2. marketing over two sites above ^

    That is my main goal for money as it is consistent and could potentially be long-term.

    However I realise my knowledge is limited compared to some and will be learning as I go along, because I'm tired of just simply reading.

    Right final section as I need to go, I will clarify points later on as I feel this has been rushed a little, but in March my goals are:

    1. Earn £500

    I will do this with mymain way ^ but I think that will be a long process so I will have a lot of time for other things, so I was either going to get jobs at GAF or use sharecash downloads as I have 100's of ideas for that.

    Thank you for reading this mammoth of a post and all comments are welcome, especially criticisms!

    See you later BHW! May we have a long and prosperous relationship

    Right been with my lil sis at some play thing and now I'm back and my plan for today is:

    Go on offervault, try join 2-3 CPA companies
    Create 3 Facebook Accounts
    Start a group on each account and let the members build up
    Create 3 YT accounts

    After that I'm going to go on GAF and see if there's ANYTHING I can do for some money.
    I'm also going to upload 2 files to sharecash and start advertising/spamming them round the net.

    I will post the results later in the evening.

    Is there anything else I should do or something I may have missed?


    Asides from the IM stuff, I'm applying for a part-time job today so I have extra coming in if I get it and lastly I have £100/$200 to invest but am saving it till I know what to do.

    Personally I think I will end up using it to buy FB accounts with friends as the time goes on but I don't want to get ahead of myself which I have a bad habit of!

    Ok so the results for today:

    Instead of doing 3 accounts, I have simply created 1 YT and FB account with 1 group.
    I'm not sure how I'm going to incorporate YT but that will happen eventually. The only problem is I don't know which CPA companies to join, there's quite a few but I'm simply looking for a FB one or social media.

    I have also applied for 1 job, updated my CV for three more jobs which I am applying for tomorrow.

    Tomorrow I am going to spam my group and get as many fans as I can, I've thought about making accounts just for a few comments to get it lively and going.

    My main problem however is I have no blogger or wordpress blog that I can give to CPA's so thats on the list for tomorrow as well. I'm realising already how much more there is to it.

    Oh also I realise that doing SC is simply a distraction to what I want to do and was unneeded so I have binned that but GAF is still likely to come in handy at some point.

    Lastly I am currently making a timetable of my week and finding all the gaps I can, you'll see what I mean when I post it tomorrow.

    spamming will get you almost nowhere if thats the only way you are planning on promoting your fan page or group. It will soon or later be deleted by facebook.

    I'm not necessarily spamming, I have a few ideas and have seen how other people get their pages popular, and to dovisit im 18 in my second year but doing more AS levels next year before uni.

    Havent posted in a while and its on the second page already, not good!

    Right so on thursday I applied for 4 CPA networks, carried on with my FB group with now has 400 members, definitely not what I was expecting, quite slow growth.

    I've also been reading a few e-books such as Sensationalist crap and wordpress SEO for beginners. Then on Friday I got accepted into 3 networks, 2 by e-mail and one over the phone. Its a lot easier than I thought...
    I'm waiting to hear back from one, but because I've got a few too many CPA's, I am willing to let people use upto 3 of them and everything is split 50/50
    I will tell you the CPA's in a message.

    Then on Friday I did some college work and went out for the night and now I'm bloody ill so have been resting today as I can't really sit infront of the computer today.

    However tomorrow I'm hoping to finish off a blog and learn how to use adsense (although it's not for that purpose) and If I manage to do that I will create 3 more FB groups.

    The problem for me at the moment is that it all seems all over the place without any direction of what I'm doing. I still need to come up with a structured procedure as such.

    Also I haven't been doing much niche research, just going for things that people will generally always want, such as losing weight stuff and gambling etc etc

    Any opinions or ideas that I may have missed out on or am not doing?

    Hi RandyAndy, I'm at your age (born in 1991), and I'm starting Univeristy of Technology (specialization: Computer Science or Electronics and Telecommunication) in October this year.

    There is another education system in my country, so I have all my exams in May - and I'm working on it hard now ; >

    I'll have a 4 months vacation, and try to run some bigger actions than now.

    My point is exactly the same as yours, make a good salary to the Uni time first. Beginning is hard, but it's worth a shot IMO.

    Hope we will make our plans come true!
