    Hey BHW !

    I'm sure a lot of people can relate to my story haha, since I'm depressed and I read a lot of people here sharing this disease. :(

    I'm depressed for a long time now. I'm 30 years old. I struggled a lot in my life, with anxiety, panic attack, etc... At least IM helped me to make some money sometimes (since I can't beat anxiety to go to a regular job: I promise guys, I tried).

    Last year for example (summer 2018), I managed to make +200$/day with youtube + cpa, that was great, it helped a lot. I started a therapy with that money, I wanted to scale all of it and really don't let my depression beat me.

    But yet, Youtube + CPA has changed a lot, very quickly during this period. Long story short, I only make $15 a day now... And it made me feel very bad, ofc. I had to stop shrink, too expensive...

    Well I'm not here to cry, I don't want that, I want to bounce back actually.
    But I don't knoww where to start right now. I'm a little lost. Should I go on on Youtube ? My last attempts were not good, Youtube + CPA is hard now...

    Or should I tri something else ? In your opinion.

    I'm not asking for spoonfeed, it's just I'm living a hard time currently, but I really want to bounce back, any opinion / advice would be really, really apprecied.

    PS: people are right, money won't save your from depression, it requires a lot more. But in mycase, money helped me to get help, it's a shame Youtube made such changes when I was starting to make money haha. But it's life. I don't want to adbicate !

    Thank you again !

    Edit: drinking problems too haha, but compared to 2 years ago, it's way better.

    Youtube/cpa will never be a good long term strategy anyway. Only takes 1 youtube update and you're fucked.

    I hear people have some success with instagram but I've never got into that. Why not take the money you are earning and invest in something more stable. Build an affiliate website or something like that.

    Thanks for your answer, man. I actually feel (because I've experienced it haha) the same about Youtube and CPA. But it's a shame because I spent time to acquire knowledge about Youtube... And now it's not really useful anymore :p

    Never tried Instagram neither, I heard nowadays it requires some Investment. By the way right now, as I said, I earn very little (15/day). You think I can make an affiliate website with that ? It will take long to see first $ ?

    Affiliate website? That's most likely the same as the Youtube method. They are owned by the same company and Google updates can whip your site at any time.

    Well tbh if I were you I wouldn't expect much help from this thread in terms of helping you with the money-making methods (there are threads opened like every day asking for them). I'd suggest you first find a way to deal with your anxiety and drinking problems. You can still learn a method, make quick bucks and come back at this situation again. When you were making the 200$ days, that was the time to invest in something else, as you know these methods most likely don't have the long-term fate.

    i am not really a guy to give advice in this situation but i suggest you save the money as much as possible in future when you are earning good amount of money as you did in past so that you don't have to worry in this kind of situations. Because last year i did the same mistake where i used to earn 200 dollars every day but spend every penny in useless things and i am struggling now.

    It's more than enough, what actually you need to invest is your time.
    You can start seeing results from the 6th month max.

    How about monetizing your depression? Start a blog or youtube channel where you share helpful resources to fight depression, provide helpful content and monetize with ads instead of cpa. Network with likeminded people, interview, doctors and experts, interview other ex deprssed people, etc.

    That's actually if you are relying solely on SEO, building an email list and social media following from day 1 makes this business model reliable and evergreen.

    If you're careful and you know what you're doing, no google update can whip your site just like that unless the whole niche has been affected eg. Health, and even in this case sometimes it's for a good reason.

    I know that but youtube have cracked down hugely on fake hack videos. Affiliate sites are more legit and stand a half decent chance of remaining alive.

    Unless you have specific skills that you can offer as a service the choices to make money online are somewhat more limited. Social media sites are becoming more difficult to game these days.

    Consider seeing a doctor/mental health specialist. Money shouldn't be a the factor that rules how happy you are. It can help, but reading your post, you need to speak to someone professional. THEN you can, with a clear head consider your next move.

    why not become reseller of something that has gross profit margin rather than youtube or cpa sometimes the click you earn does not equal with your effort

    For your depression:inthink you should meditation by now or do yoga,avoid some medicine sometimes it makes us addicted i also get panic attack but the more i enjoy my life more i release the panic and stress

    Spend your spare time learning a valuable skill. You are only going to make it so far with “methods” unless you’re very experienced. Get a skill and learn how to sell yourself so you can start making some real money.

    First you should look into your mental problems. Some things I can recommend for your situation.

    1. Lift heavy things 3x/week - good for mood and making you feel good overall
    2. Cardio often - good for mood, same as above, but both give different rushes.
    3. Eat healthy - for everyone it's different. I do well on a paleo-type diet where I eat mostly meats and veggies, some fruit. Not a lot of processed junk or carbs. Quit alcohol if you drink. Quit weed if you smoke. Drink only water.
    4. Meditate in the morning. Don't go on your phone. Wake up, meditate. Take a cold shower, get into a nice rhythm. Workout, then start your day.
    5. Supplements. I can extremely recommend magnesium for anxiety. If you don't eat a lot of foods with magnesium, chances are you're low. Causes depression and anxiety. I don't do a lot of supplements, but took this for years as it helped me with anxiety (before, I had a bad diet and drank a lot). Vitamin D supplements if you're in a non-sunny location.

    A lot of mental issues IMO are caused because of our society norm. Sedative lives, junk food, and poisoning our bodies with alcohol, social media. After feeling better, get a job to fund your IM. And learn to finance and save so you don't have to be in this situation again.

    This should be enough to help you feel better, if not completely 100%. Food is one of the most important things for me, so learn to cook cheap and healthy, but don't restrict yourself to eating mcdonalds because you don't want to spend more on healthier food.

    Relying on a single source of income is dangerous because no one can judge the future. Spend some time here to read and try various methods which suits you. STOP DRINKING

    Good luck

    activities / foods / experience that produces / results / or maybe contains; dopamine, serotonin, endorphin & oxytocin will surely help you

    stay healthy, stay happy, op

    shrinks wont do anything, they just charge money and do nothing, forget about making money bro you need self motivation and self love, the only place you can get that is THE GYM, join gym and do yoga everyday,

    your depression will go away, Gym and yoga are two powerful tools against depression, just listen rob baily songs and hit the gym do yoga everymornig, and have a great diet, your life will become so good trust me just try this one month and you will se the results!

    and there is one other thing that will help you in depression is mountains, find where mountains are, go there those places are so peace full, it will fill your heart with love and peace, and if you can then go to india's himalayas those mountains have healing properties, from Apple's ceo to twitter ceo they all visit those mountains and spend time there, 100% sure all this shitty depression will be gone. they have healing propetries, this is true, shrinks wont help, you did their therapy and paid them money, how much they helped you?
