    1"The differential of somebody winning and losing has nothing to do with their genetics, has nothing to do with their potential. In life, it's not the most genetic person who wins or the guy who has most potential to win. It's the person with PERSEVERANCE who wins. Always wants to get up and go at it again."



    Hello everyone. I'm here with a brand new exciting challenge, hopefully this keeps me on track and inspires people.

    The current income streams:
    - FeeBay
    - Web Development & Software Development
    - Freelancing
    - CPA method​

    The Goal:
    It's the time in my life where I need to leave the "mother duck" and start my own life. Recently becoming an adult I now have a lot of new responsibilites and need to move out of home. Within 90 days I would like to be renting my own house and generating a great income.

    The History:
    I've been dabbling in Internet Marketing for the last three or four years, nothing serious. I've never properly dedicated myself to anything in life. A highschool dropout on the fast road to no where. Internet Marketing is going to change everything for me.

    The best month I've had generated a total income of four and a half thousand. Current earnings are nothing close to this.

    Qualifications:
    Certificate 3 In Web Dev & Design.

    Skills:
    - Photoshop
    - HTML
    - CSS
    - Bootstrap
    - Cold Calling


    2"Second by second you loose the opportunity to become the person you want to be , when are you going to stop making excuses and take charge of your life?"

    The Methods (explained)

    FeeBay:
    Earnings: 323.50 (This month)
    Summary: Dropshipping from Deal Extreme
    Type: Noob Friendly

    Dropshipping on Feebay has been a real experience for me. Generating 323.50 in revenue in the first two weeks (gross revenue) with a profit of roughly half. There's many items that go for upwards of three times their price of my suppliers. The weirdest items seem to generate the most revenue, it's very interesting.

    Plan:
    Upload 100 listings within the 90 days, cancel bad items and create better listings.

    Challenges:
    - I currently have a 7,500 / 100 item per month limit.
    - Customizing each image with my feebay username logo, box etc etc.
    - This is very time consuming.


    3"When you embark on this journey you must know; that it's going to go down before it comes up and when it comes up it's going to go so much higher than you've ever been"

    Web Development & Software Development:
    Earnings: 550.00 (This month)
    Summary: Making websites and software
    Type: Experience required.

    Web Development & Software Development is the main "bread winner" for my work.

    Plan:
    Generate local business as well as online and potentially expand to hiring other freelancers to work under a "makeshift firm" for now.

    Challenges:
    - Finding work

    Logo Method:
    Earnings: 0 (Just Started)
    Summary: Developing logos for various companies.
    Type: Very Noob Friendly

    This method is probably the easiest and promising for the time invested. It requires downloading hundreds (potentially thousands) of logo templates from the internet with commercial licenses and sourcing logo work from Freelancing sites. You then match the requirements to one of the hundreds of logo templates you've downloaded and ad in their business details.

    The average going rate of logos on freelance sites is 30.00 with this method I assume I could create a logo in several minutes.

    Plan:
    Complete 50 logo orders by the challenge date.

    Challenges:
    - Finding Clients

    Private CPA method - To be launched shortly.

    Summary:
    I'll try to update this thread a minimum of weekly. I promise that this will be succesful and inspiring.

    [Day One - 9/04/2014]

    Earnings: $77.00
    Expenses: $10.06
    Profit: $66.94

    The day has just begun and today I plan to get a lot of things done.

    FeeBay:
    - Upload 5 Listings
    - Search for dropshippers

    Currently I have 12 active listings and would like to have 17 uploaded and branded by tonight. This requires searching for products on Deal Extreme (and other suppliers) removing the branding and uploading my own branding. It can get quite difficult finding items that are "hot" or move items as such, but once you do it's as simple as ordering the item and taking the earnings.

    Web Development:
    - Search for potential clients
    - Finish secured project ($77 from Freelancer AU)

    This morning I landed a small project on a freelance website for converting a PSD file to HTML / CSS and plan to complete this project in the next few hours.

    Graphic Design:
    - Bid on 5 Projects

    Finding logo projects are actually harder than I originally thought however I will keep attempting to land jobs.

    CPA:

    This project will begin in the next few days, it's a lot of setting up and testing.

    Will update this post as the day goes on.

    Nice to see you already have couple of income streams :)
    Bid low on projects at first then as you get more reviews and customers keep increasing the price.

    Thanks, I've never heard of this feature so I will look into it! Thank you.

    [Day Two - 10/04/2014]

    Earnings: $44.00
    Expenses: $20.00
    Profit: $24.00

    UPDATED:
    A long night last night, I ended up staying awake until 3 AM searching for potential projects and updating listings. While I was sleep I sold two products ($32.99 + $4.99 + $5.99) which together bring a total profit of $18.00.

    It's currently 7:10 AM and I'm running on four hours of sleep. Todays plan is to upload more listings, call local businesses for potential web development and search forums / freelancing websites for more websites to develop.

    I understand the majority of the Challenge / Adventure will be web development, which isn't a great money earner to write about (unlike per se I created a website and ranked it to the first page of google) I'll be sure to incorporate a few "standard" methods which give the real "journey" feel along the way.

    Thanks for taking the time to read, this thread is getting rather long. PS I really appreciate the encouraging messages you guys have left!

    1:37 PM:
    Not much has changed as of today, I have uploaded 3 more listings to ebay and continuously searching for work on Freelance websites.

    The CPA method will begin tomorrow and I am super excited.
