    Now this isn't something to grab your attention or whatnot, but today I just got the best news ever (sarcastic):

    - Lost my job 2 weeks ago
    - Since I have no job I got kicked out today (now living with a friend)
    - Sent around 100+ applications+resumes during these 2 weeks (Only 1 employer got back with me and said today he liked skills, but told me to keep looking for a job lol).
    - Girl I was talking to straight just rejected me and stopped talking. (guess nice guys really finish last lol).
    - Bills due like crazy (I agreed to pay around $200 rent +$200 in bills to my friend with little money I have until I can get on my feet).

    So now I am typing this through wifi at his apartment on my computer using 3g from my phone (I was able to get a few belongings + I had to pay $100 for a uhaul).

    So basic I'm broke, but I'm not poor lol, because being poor is a mindset.

    I made this thread because I have a goal of making 2k in 2 weeks starting today (I saw plenty of guys do it here, the only difference I have no seo tools, no education or line of credit, no experience or prior knowledge with CPA's, nothing, not 1 client at all, and only 1 friend (and he gets really drunk and tempered so I'm guessing in 2 weeks will be my time to go lol), I'm being serious, no family nothing but the clothes on my back).

    So I made this thread because Autoblogger gave me an idea, he said why teach only yourself, when you can teach others, and I strongly believe this will help someone that is or was in my position.

    This will just be a journey to show people who have any questions about making money IM'ing or any doubts that it is possible, and there are no excuses.

    If anyone has any suggestions or wants to lend a hand, be my guest, I only ask that anyone who post in this thread post something that is helpful, or ask something intelligent (No flaming and nonsense please)

    Keep in mind I'm no expert in everything, so if you have a complex question about something, I'm just learning while I attempt to try something. I don't have a vps, no proxies, scrapebox, senuke x, none of that, just a brain and computer lol.

    So here is my journey:

    --

    Day 1:

    I used to make some money with fiverr, but I realized its taking me forever to do the gig I am offering. I also realized in the last 2 weeks I forgot to suspend my gigs in fiverr and had 4 gigs waiting to be ordered, so all 4 got cancelled lol. I made around $40 in 2 months with fiverr, so I just withdrew that money, and bought me a 2 .info domains from go daddy, and a hostgator baby account. I spent around $5.

    I also withdrew my money with Article Document. Now I am not the best writer, but I am decent. I made around $60 from that with around 20 articles written.

    I peeped Crashed spoon feed tutorial, so now I downloaded tweet attacks free, and managed to get to day 1 as we speak (creating fb, yt, etc).

    I have a colleague who just offered to give me his earnings from his vouchers, so if anyone out there need some $50 fb advertising coupons, hit me up, letting them go for a deal.

    So today I have around $95 in paypal. Its alright start. I'm still not calling it a day.

    Update:

    --
    I've been reading on the forum for other methods, found a post on how to make cash watching stuff, but I found out it was a scheme, so anyone who knows what I'm talking about, don't bother with it.

    --
    I just logged into my article writing sites, nothing but small articles paying less than $1 150 words, so thats a no go at the moment. So I'm going to fill out another job application and then take a quick break (I've had a very very long day and been up since around 6am).

    --
    Still haven't rested yet. I just made it about halfway through Crashed day 1 challenge. I made a yt and twitter (no info filled in yet), probably gonna take a break, because I'm sweating lol..

    With all of the knowledge here on BHW you can make your goal and more if you work hard enough. I would recommend doing some offline CPA. Sign up with an affiliate, pay somebody to make you a flyer on Fiverr, and put your flyers where ever you can. You can also pay somebody on Fiverr do distribute your flyers to.

    Thats what I am doing and I am currently making 80$ a day with a few minutes of actual work a day. Everything is outsourced. I started last Saturday to. If you work hard enough you can easily pass me.

    Good Luck.

    Don't take this in the wrong way, but if you don't know anything and you want to be successful and build prosperous website(s), then you need to read more and type less.

    I wasn't going to respond to your post, so don't take this the wrong way because I've been through alot today and the past few weeks, but if you ever been homeless or had to stay with a friend/person to keep from sleeping under the freeway, then you don't really know what its like, there is nothing scripted about this. Trust me, if you think this is a script, please point me to some publishing companies who will pay for this type of writing.

    My main focus is just to post my day to day experience and try to help out any new people or get help from people that have a interest in making money online.

    Making $95 on paypal on day 1 is great. You will make 2k a breeze if you earn like this everyday.

    Thought about doing that, and I actually did with neobux (I tried a method on here someone posted awhile ago) last week, and I barely broke even.

    I was thinking about making one and selling it through dp or wf, but i really don't have $ to invest to post it.

    Go to Odesk and freelancer and whore yourself out. That's going to be your best bet while you look for a job. You'll get a nice safe flow of income to keep a roof over your head. Once you've read BHW for a while and learned some more (you said you didn't know much) put together a plan. I mean really plan this thing out, write it down. WRITE IT DOWN. Put that shit on a piece of paper and tape it to the wall. Execute plan and stop reading BHW for a while. Come back once you've exhausted your plan and are ready for something new, but don't move on until you feel like you have REALLY tried hard as shit on your original plan.

    Damn bro, all I can really say is at times like these just
    keep your head up and focus on survival, I'm being 100%
    honest, DONT think about how you're broke and all the
    negative thoughts of being broke. Just keep your eye on
    the prize, and haul ass until you're stable.

    Goodluck man!

    If you have written to article sites, and gotten paid for those articles, then what about using TheBestSpinner's paid service to "auto spin" articles for you and submit them to article sites. I don't do the article thing, so I am unsure if it would really work. Maybe someone here can say yes or no, just an idea.

    I really am. I don't want anyone to feel sorry for me, but I'm literally sleeping on the concrete outside as I type this...(I'm not lying, I'm being being dead serious). I went back to get the rest of my belongings and things turned out different than planned, so I have to wait until the morning. I found a motel that charges enough for me to stay 1 month. So I will have 30 days or I will back out here literally.

    So I don't know lol...

    I'm think that's my best bet to just get that place, and submit applications everywhere and whore myself out. Sometimes I feel alone and stupid trying to make it, but I have alot of drive.

    I just want to get a room I can stay in and take a bath for the night lol. But Anyways, I will post back probably tommorow if I can land somewhere.

    Damn that is harsh bro. Just keep your head up and never give up,
    trust me good things happen to those who work hard and are patient.
    The good thing is when you make it, you can feel good that you did all
    on your own, and not owe anyone shit.

    Damn, dude. Keep your head up. There was a couple of weeks over the summer when I only had 5$ bucks to my name. I had to DRASTICALLY cut my spending just to make ends meet. I started donating plasma to pick up the slack. Luckily, everything worked out in the end. If you want a free ScrapeBox or AMR Blast, let me know. Good luck man!

    Damn good luck man, keep that mindset and just slowly build and focus on little goals. Sometimes trying to make too much right away just gets you down and it seems overwhelming. So just set little goals and keep building, at least that's what I tell myself heh.

    Being broke is temporary, being poor is forever
