    Hello BHW,
    s0me here. I forgot my password and I don't have access to my email.

    As title says, I'm fucked. And not for days, I'm fuck3d for 5months.
    The story:
    I started making m0ney 2 years ago, I escaladed quickly from 30/day to 100, then 300 a day. Just spamming youtube with comments.
    After the last yt update (new commenting system), I was out of business. If I made 300 a day, don't think I saved too much money: girls, drugs,my car and night life ruined me.

    On my mind it was something like: Ok, yt is dead now, but it's impossible to not find another great niche to make same amount...it was not at all.
    I tried for 4 MONTHS to find something to make me money again, but anything didn't worked for me. I spent xxx hours on multiple niches like SEO, 301 red, yt videos, yt insta rank, spamming forums, paid traffic for cpa offers, I failed on all.

    And look at me now...22yrs old, no money, no school, no job.
    WTF should I do now? :|

    Even though you had great investment plan (as seen in this quote) you should have thought about the possibility of losing all your future earnings.

    I am not sure what do you expect us to tell you. There are countless amount of threads "where to start" - pick one and proceed. You are back to making $0/day, nobody is going to tell you a method to go back to the $300/day. Rebuild your "empire" and don't blow your money next time.

    Don't put all your eggs in one basket. You should've diversified your income source or split the profits to create multiple revenue streams. Well, now you learned your lesson. It's time to get back to your white board and start again from step one. And from now on, try to save up some portion of your earnings and invest on stocks/bonds/gold.

    As they say, do not put all eggs in one basket.
    You should have invested the money you earned by spamming on building a real business.

    What you should do now is get your mind right, relax, read some books, set new goals and get back to work. You know, the path to riches is usually just like that, fail, fail, fail, success, fail, success, fail, success, success.

    Best of luck to you!

    shit like that happens. Dont rest on your laurels. You should try to move away from spam to legit projects that dont die every other week.

    I think you are not mature enough till now, First thing you must understand that nothing is permanent (Especially with online world). Now think so that you learnt your lesson. From now on wards, keep in mind that, when ever you earn, keep some part of it the savings, or you can follow the "Warren Buffets" (hope so you know him) words "Do not save what is left after spending, but spend what is left after saving." For now I think you should go back to the basics, go and get one job, than earn some money and take some courses for online money, like web- designing, content creation than create some niche websites according to your interests and than get some affiliates and Adsense for your website. One more thing "Never put your all egg in one basket" diversify your income.

    $300 > $0, right?
    Find a job, get these $300 and invest part of them in IM. And forget about drugs, bitchez, etc. for now.

    I'll tell you one thing - many people wasted their first bigger money and they became successful later anyway. It's just a hard lesson and it won't let you make the same mistake in future.

    I'm very depressive now, I really don't know in what to invest. I mean, I can ask a friend to give me 300 bucks, but I had sooo many fails and now I think everything I'll do it won't work.
    I wasted around $2k on the last 4months, trying to get something that works

    This SAME EXACT thing happened to me with YouTube. I was making $200-300 a day and sometimes up to $400-500 a day on weekends. Then YouTube changed on me. It was over for that. A lot of the money went into helping family, but I still saved some of it.

    This only lasted for 4 weeks (before the update)

    I then focused on finishing my first ebook Jan 13th. & launched it February with NO LIST, and just 3 articles. I just put it on the site, It took me a month to see 1 sale to a $19.97 product. But after the first sale, the second one came 13 days later. and here I am, trying multiple methods again... If you know your stuff, I would get into some offline work, and build a portfolio of clients on monthly plans. That's my next side thing to do while I do online. Imagine 10-20 clients on 200-300 a month selling useful services and results, and that's aiming low.

    I don't trust Google for shit. Don't build your castle on shifting sands.

    This has caused me to not want to focus on SEO, but rather to advertise on sites that have established themselves.
