    Wondering what niches you guys got into, I am not here to steal your niche or something. Just curious.

    My niche was Warez and Penetration testing.

    Selling social media followers/likes was my first real money maker, still brings some nice pocket money too.

    I started out selling software for developers via a 1-900 number. But it was too weird of an idea to last at the time (though I had a small arsenal of authors willing to give me a chance). Users would call the number and accept a phone charge as payment for the software. I then forwarded the payment to the developers for a small fee. I think the entire stint lasted for about a year before I gave up. People weren't willing to think outside of the box, and they insisted my little service was going to somehow deliver adult content.

    First one was internet marketing but ended up as a fail since I knew nothing about it.
    Right after website went down I picked weight loss to grow and learn.
