    Bonjour everyone and welcome to my journey thread, I have worked hard at my 9-5 job and treated myself and my fiancee to a trip to Paris. This trip has opened my eyes in a number of ways and has therefore put me in the mind frame to take action, make a plan, judge accountability and start working hard to make my own lifestyle.

    My plan.
    Open a service website for a product I can create and sell for a certain price point. There are many versions of my product online but what I will be doing is assessing the best of the competition in the market, finding a unique selling point and most importantly working out who my market are going to be and what I need to do to appeal to their needs and trigger buying responses.

    If you've ever been to Paris or another area in the world with a famous landmark or monument you will be aware of those lovely people selling the exact same souvenirs every 5 steps you take you get asked if you want to buy them for xx amount or have your picture taken it will only cost xx xx well I was getting fed up of it because they do nothing to make themselves different to all the others.. finally I found someone doing something a little bit different in terms of the product he was selling and that little twist although practically with the same approach as all the others he was selling lots more than his competition.

    That got me thinking about my product it can't be the same I must add more a value be more unique be more helpful or all of the above. Motivation to do something at last.

    My background

    I have been the most naive im person out there I bought a website for 10k when I first set out because I was led to believe figures given to me, I didn't realise I could have created the same or better site for a fraction of the cost but it was a hard lesson to learn as most of my savings had gone in one drop.

    I then managed to get myself back up and running and spent 2k on a social media selling site.. again I was given false hope bad information and generally I was not happy with the purchase but by then it was too late and they had run off into the night...... The only good thing about this was that I found this site through them...

    Since then I have purchased mns sites and have a few running as we speak I have also bought authority packages and lacked the motivation to continue with them and that has always been my main failing lack of a main plan lack of taking self criticism and lack of believing I wasn't in control.

    Well I am in control now I am planning to do a lot of research when I get back home and by the end of march my product will be ready to go.

    The product I already know inside and out and have a price point in mind. I have sourced the people needed to work with me when I need them and pretty much have an idea that I will make £30 for every sale I make.

    Short term goals will be to achieve
    My first sale
    My first week of a sale a day
    Consistently earn £300 a week.

    Long term goals
    Save £5000 and quit my 9-5 job

    My first week of £1000

    Build a diverse portfolio of sites between 10 and 20 that will have informative and shareable content that will be set up with the model of earning through adsense, Amazon, cpa and by getting an email list built too.

    Once I have achieved the model of working for myself I hope to travel more because this has been an amazing trip and I hope as we go along this journey I can help inspire others and share with you what is working well.

    N's it's illegal to try and sell the pictures in France but seen as I'm just showing how lush it is that's okay. However I will be more than happy to take it down should a member of the French police contact me :D

    Until then it focus on creating products so I can count some money :D well after taking my lady out for tea ...I'm starving :D
