The Master Plan:

  1. 0 to 1K with freelancing,(3 months)​
  2. 1k to 10K with Info Biz,(2 months)​
  3. 10K to 100k with FBA,(4 months)​
  4. 100k to 1M with Shopify, (2 months)​
  5. 1M to 10M with Wholesaling. (1 month)​

The idea is not about using one business as a trampoline to get into another business. Actually, they are all interconnected. It's really about organically growing a business.
1 directly lead to 2.It is easy to create an info product with your freelance experience. You can also sell it to your freelance clients. Also, the money from freelancing can be used as seed money for your info biz. (You need at least 1k for paid traffic, funnel software, etc before you can make any money in info biz)After it succeeds it'll become a passive income.
Then you can focus on FBA which takes lots of time and money. The info biz takes care of your bills and costs associated with FBA.
Once you created a strong brand in Amazon then you can create a dedicated Shopify store. After that, you can move to wholesale. You should remember that 3, 4 and 5 are for the same product. They are not separate businesses.
This way we can hit the 1 million (or 10 million) mark in 12 months.

The idea is simple but not easy. Come and join the ride!

Your goal (0$ To 1000000$ In 12 Months!) is totally unrealistic and the math doesn't add up, you know that? (I mean, there's no math).

Generating $1M in sales is hard and takes time. Saving $1M is even harder.
Your master plan is a total chaos.

Also, it looks like you want to do 3 totally different and unrelated things, but each of them takes lots of knowledge, effort, planning and TIME.

In your introduction you write that you dabbled in many different businesses and didn't make a dollar yet, do you want to now repeat the same mistake?

It is not unrealistic.
- 0 to 1billion is
- 0 to 100 millions is
- 0 to 10 millions is
- 0 to 1 million is not.

Forgot who, but someone here made 0 to 500k roughly in a year dropshipping. "Aim for the moon. Even if you miss, you will land among the stars".

Some people need huge goals to get moving.

If OP is serious, and this is not an action fake - even if he fails, he will learn a ton.

Think big!

Now, the plan is a different story.

What a pathetic post, go attend any affiliate conferences and you will see how wrong you are.

@Vairavan You will see many people trying to drag you down, just focus on your goals. Most importantly, keep yourself accountable. I personally know many who have achieved far greater than a million in far less time starting from zero. It is not impossible.

Can you give me some constructive criticism?
Sure:

You seem to have "shiny object syndrome" and are basically the definition of a wantrepreneur, right now anyway.

From your intro:

- You've never held a job
- You couldn't finish college, twice, and apparently couldn't even complete a single paper.
- You thought you could learn coding when you thought you could get rich from it but quit before you ever got good at it, and it seems fair to assume you never brought a single app to market. But at least you bought lots of books!
- You quit coding when you read about info products, your new way to get rich but never developed a single info product. But at least you read a bunch of material and bought a bunch of courses!
- You quit info products when you heard about FBA, your new way to get rich but never imported a single product. But at least you bought a bunch of courses!
- You quit FBA when you learned about drop-shipping, your new method to get rich, but never drop shipped a single product. But you spent months perfecting a site that couldn't integrate with one of the merchant processors and it would take too long to fix and you couldn't think of any other way to fix this issue so you quit again, never selling a single product.
- You tried info products again but don't have the patience to create any info! You outsourced it and tried one single promotion which got removed so it was back to the courses again and buying more crap.
- Now you're onto freelancing, new (yet again) way to make money. Once again you didn't have the patience to write your own anything, so you copied the top seller on fiverr like a rip-off artist.
- You are threatening suicide if it doesn't work now? Man, come on.

You are not going to make a million dollars in 12 months. I'm all for being optimistic and hopeful but you have a really, really solid track history of spending money on education, not having the patience to do anything yourself, and switching before you get good at anything only to spend more money on books, courses, software, etc...

Here's my constructive criticism:

1. Get a job. You need money. Jobs give you money. You just have to follow orders instead of doing what you don't have the patience for - creation.

2. Stop buying courses, software, and books. You're addicted to stories of success and need to cut that out. You won't find your answer in a book.

3. When you aren't working at a job, create something and sell it. You already know enough to do this from everything you've read and bought already. You just need to DO IT.

- Start by trying to make $1. Then $10. Then $100. Then $1000. Don't even consider $10k until you can hit $1k.

- Do not spend anything you make. You are trying to build a business, not pay yourself, not right now. Re-invest it all into your businesses. Ads, new products, tests, etc... Every dollar back into your business. If you can't figure out what to spend your revenue on - just save it. When you grow as an entrepreneur you'll stop having this problem and can re-invest the savings.

- Try to add value to this world. You don't add value by stealing other people's things or following a pre-set formula. Help people. Get good at it. Money comes to you from helping others solve something.

Once you have the discipline to create something for yourself, sell it, and add value to this world, then and ONLY then can you set loftier goals to scale up.

A million dollars in 12 months is not happening for you my friend. Not at this stage. You need to learn to make $1 without copying someone else first. Until you have the patience to sit down and create something from start to finish for yourself and have that thing help someone else - you will be stuck on the never ending hamster wheel of chasing the next, new shiny object.

Amen, no just joking. I totally agree with your oppion. Of course it is good to think big, but there has to be some base.

You learn bij taking the first small step, and during the road you learn alot. I can tell you, just 'recovering' from a failed merge, cost me money and time ( and a lot of Grey hear) but one of the best lessons I ever had!!!! Didn't want to mis it. That's why go out in the field, learn from your failures en keep working at your big idea.

It is not unrealistic.
- 0 to 1 billion is
- 0 to 100 millions is
- 0 to 10 millions is
- 0 to 1 million is not.
I'm not saying it is unrealistic in general.

It all depends on how and the time-frame.
IMO, it is unrealistic with the plan (or the lack thereof) the OP posted here.

Also, aiming high is definitely great.
But aiming unrealistically high without a plan can end up with a big depression or discouragement.
Things take time.

E.g. there is a big difference between
"In 2019, I will exercise four days a week, keep my diet of 3400 kcal daily and put on at least 12 kilograms of muscle mass"

and

"I'm gonna build 20 kg of lean muscle mass in the next two months, exercising 20 minutes a day and keeping diet!!!!!"

Some goals are better than others. The way they are formulated makes a big difference, imo.

Forgot who, but someone here made 0 to 500k roughly in a year dropshipping. "Aim for the moon. Even if you miss, you will land among the stars".
Yeah, there's many people who did it, or who "did" it.
500k what. Sales, profit? I know people who generate 1 M in sales a year but their profit is around 10-15%.
Then someone else might generate much less and it doesn't look so cool on forums and screenshots, but they don't have so much overhead and costs (e.g. they are selling digital products or have dominated a small undeserved niche), and are able to bank much more year after year.
I'm just saying, be more discerning.

The problem is the OP didn't specify if his goal was grossing or netting 1M, or maybe saving 1M etc.
I don't like unspecific goals.

It's like saying "My goal is to make 2019 awesome" or "my goal is to be more active".
But what does it mean? Nothing, really.

Can you give me some constructive criticism?
I'm not going to do all at once. I'm going to take money from one biz and put it in my next venture. It's just a big picture.

Yes. And keep in mind that I don't mean to bring you down man.
Alright. So you don't want to do it all at once, that's better.

But here are the problems that I see (keep in mind that it's only my opinion, and I'm not a millionaire or any big authority, however I have been living the more or less unscripted life since 2014):

1) Your goals are unspecific, and hence hard to track.

An example of a specific goal could be "I plan to create a digital product that I will price at $2000, and sell it to 500 people in a year. 500 x 2000 = 1 M yearly


2) Looks to me like you want to do to many things at once, which you have already tried and it took you nowhere.

You want to do freelancing, Amazon FBA and ALSO create/sell digital products?

The problem that I see is that each of these is a very big area in itself.
It takes time and focus to create your brand/name and traction in each of these things.

A friend of mine makes 2 MIL in sales a year on amazon FBA, but it took him 4 years to build it. And it was his ONLY focus. He would often work 14 hours a day. And his wife helps him a LOT.

They I know people who make lots of money freelancing, but they didn't do anything else for a long time before it took off and still are focusing on freelancing, so they can become experts and make 5 figures monthly.
Can't be a jack of all trades. And certainly you can't become an all-around successful guy in a year.

Pick one of those things and focus on it.
I only tried FBA once (and failed) in 2015, and I know it's much more expensive and harder now.
I'm not any kind of expert on it, but you can ask people who make tons of sales on this forum if it's realistic to start from scratch with no budget and get to 1 MIL in one year. Maybe it is, should be in theory. But I guess you would need lots of savings/deep pockets to pull it off so fast, or have a very original idea and a great execution.

Product creation? Maybe.

Freelancing? Sounds like something that would not require deep pockets to start with.

Also, I am not sure what to think about the idea of using one business as a trampoline to get to another, only to leave it too after some time to focus on something else. They all take time to get traction and start generating some nice sales. That's what's totally unrealistic in your thinking.

Why not focus on generating huge numbers as a freelancer or digital products creator?

Why would you take time and knowledge to become good at something ("2.1. Create a passive income of 3-10k/month" - 10k monthly is a very good money, especially in India...but even in Canada) and then leave it to pursue a totally different thing?

- You are threatening suicide if it doesn't work now? Man, come on.
So you're saying I'm a loser in life? That is the very thing I'm trying to change.You see I don't need money to feed myself.I'm telling all my friends and family I'm an entrepreneur for a long time. But I don't have anything tangible to show them. I need to earn quickly to save face. That's why I'm so impatient.
Get a job. You need money. Jobs give you money. You just have to follow orders instead of doing what you don't have the patience for - creation.
why? Doesn't @MJ DeMarco say trading time for money is slavery? Doesn't Robert Kiyosaki said "Getting a job is for losers!"
create something and sell it. You already know enough to do this from everything you've read and bought already. You just need to DO IT.

- Start by trying to make $1. Then $10. Then $100. Then $1000. Don't even consider $10k until you can hit $1k.
Thanks. I like this advice. I'll make this my goal to make my first dollar online. Then only I think about making 10$, etc.

Try to add value to this world. You don't add value by stealing other people's things or following a pre-set formula. Help people. Get good at it. Money comes to you from helping others solve something.
This is the thing I missed all the years I think. I know Anthony Robbins once said, "If you want to achieve your goals, help other's achieve theirs".But, I never took that advice seriously. Now I understand my mistakes.
Until you have the patience to sit down and create something from start to finish for yourself and have that thing help someone else - you will be stuck on the never-ending hamster wheel of chasing the next, new shiny object.
Now I understand. It'll take lots of time to achieve something in business. But like I already said I need to succeed in business quickly due to family pressure. Also, I don't have any capital left. So,I think freelancing is the only way to go.

An example of a specific goal could be "I plan to create a digital product that I will price at $2000, and sell it to 500 people in a year. 500 x 2000 = 1 M yearly
I already have something like this (1000$ x 1000?). But I didn't specify.I thought I'll figure that out later.
The problem that I see is that each of these is a very big area in itself.
It takes time and focus to create your brand/name and traction in each of these things.
I never thought of this way. I now understand everything in business take longer than expected and there is a learning curve for everything.
I am not sure what to think about the idea of using one business as a trampoline to get to another, only to leave it too after some time to focus on something else.
I first heard it from Dan Lok. He calls it "Pyramid of Wealth".He said someone should not start a business before they are making 10K/mon in freelancing. Because the skills you need to make 10k from freelancing are the same for succeeding in business. Then they should invest the money they earned from freelancing in business. Then they should take money from their business and invest it elsewhere.
Also, I thought freelancing is good for going from 0$ to 1000$. Then with Info biz, you can go from 1K to 10K. With FBA you can go from 10K to 100K. And with Shopify & Big-Box retailers you can go from 100k to 1 million.

OP, this is the only advice you need. Get to work and in a couple years time, you'll be miles ahead of where you are now.
Idk why everyone is asking me to go & get a job when the basic premise of Fastlane is not working for a wage.(Divorcing time from money)

Thanks. I want to keep the tile the same. I'll change my immediate goals. But, I don't want to change my end goal.
Journey of a thousand miles blah blah blah...

Be as enthused about that first step as you are now for transitioning some phantom product from fba to Wal-Mart.

Where's that first $1000 coming from, and what step can you take instead of responding to me will inch you closer to it?

Now,I'm not going to think about making 1000$. Now my only goal is to make my first dollar online. I'm going to change the description of my gig in Fiverr with my own copy. I may also buy from another account and give it a five-star rating.I also going to add a unique angle to my gig. After I get my first order I'll post here. I'll also over-deliver for my client and develop goodwill.I'm not going to concentrate on anything else until I do this.

why? Doesn't @MJ DeMarco say trading time for money is slavery? Doesn't Robert Kiyosaki said "Getting a job is for losers?"
Wow, talk about taking something out of context just so it can fit your narrative.

It truly does sound like you need a job. There's nothing wrong with it if it fits your long-game vision.

I had at last a dozen jobs before my entrepreneurial ventures started to pan out. And my recommendation to many young people with zero experience and a case of money chasing-itis is just that... get a job.

Your challenge seems to be mental toughness. As soon as something gets hard, you quit and move on to the next newer, seemingly easier "money making" venture. And from what you've written, I don't see much talk about value, but just a lot of talk about yourself. This self-centered disposition rarely creates value, and just chases money from one thing to the next.

Re-read @JAJT post... he said it better than I could.

And NO, this doesn't make you a loser... it just makes you lost.

Hopefully we can help right your ship, that's why we are here.

Sure:

You seem to have "shiny object syndrome" and are basically the definition of a wantrepreneur, right now anyway.

From your intro:

- You've never held a job
- You couldn't finish college, twice, and apparently couldn't even complete a single paper.
- You thought you could learn coding when you thought you could get rich from it but quit before you ever got good at it, and it seems fair to assume you never brought a single app to market. But at least you bought lots of books!
- You quit coding when you read about info products, your new way to get rich but never developed a single info product. But at least you read a bunch of material and bought a bunch of courses!
- You quit info products when you heard about FBA, your new way to get rich but never imported a single product. But at least you bought a bunch of courses!
- You quit FBA when you learned about drop-shipping, your new method to get rich, but never drop shipped a single product. But you spent months perfecting a site that couldn't integrate with one of the merchant processors and it would take too long to fix and you couldn't think of any other way to fix this issue so you quit again, never selling a single product.
- You tried info products again but don't have the patience to create any info! You outsourced it and tried one single promotion which got removed so it was back to the courses again and buying more crap.
- Now you're onto freelancing, new (yet again) way to make money. Once again you didn't have the patience to write your own anything, so you copied the top seller on fiverr like a rip-off artist.
- You are threatening suicide if it doesn't work now? Man, come on.

You are not going to make a million dollars in 12 months. I'm all for being optimistic and hopeful but you have a really, really solid track history of spending money on education, not having the patience to do anything yourself, and switching before you get good at anything only to spend more money on books, courses, software, etc...

Here's my constructive criticism:

1. Get a job. You need money. Jobs give you money. You just have to follow orders instead of doing what you don't have the patience for - creation.

2. Stop buying courses, software, and books. You're addicted to stories of success and need to cut that out. You won't find your answer in a book.

3. When you aren't working at a job, create something and sell it. You already know enough to do this from everything you've read and bought already. You just need to DO IT.

- Start by trying to make $1. Then $10. Then $100. Then $1000. Don't even consider $10k until you can hit $1k.

- Do not spend anything you make. You are trying to build a business, not pay yourself, not right now. Re-invest it all into your businesses. Ads, new products, tests, etc... Every dollar back into your business. If you can't figure out what to spend your revenue on - just save it. When you grow as an entrepreneur you'll stop having this problem and can re-invest the savings.

- Try to add value to this world. You don't add value by stealing other people's things or following a pre-set formula. Help people. Get good at it. Money comes to you from helping others solve something.

Once you have the discipline to create something for yourself, sell it, and add value to this world, then and ONLY then can you set loftier goals to scale up.

A million dollars in 12 months is not happening for you my friend. Not at this stage. You need to learn to make $1 without copying someone else first. Until you have the patience to sit down and create something from start to finish for yourself and have that thing help someone else - you will be stuck on the never ending hamster wheel of chasing the next, new shiny object.
Golden Words.
I think you hit the nail for everyone new to this including me. Two topics you mentioned stood out to me.

1) Jumping from one thing to another and not sticking through till the end (not saying one should never call it quits). Somewhere on the forum I remembered reading , be aware of those that jump from one idea to another in a short amount of time either when things get difficult or it is not producing results right away.

1a.) With no experience running a business, I started an Ebay store last year 10/2018. With extensive researching I started with $20.00. Along the way Friends and Family asked questions specially only about "Money". After hearing about some good flips, a few joined and eventually fell off when within weeks when it didn't generate the PROFITS I've told them about. There were times in the past and even now where I produce no sales. Crickets for weeks. But the thought of quitting never reached my mind. Instead I think of Whys and Hows I can attract buyers to increase my sales. Currently, completed over 200 transactions w/ 100% review. I still have ppl telling me they are going to try again but I doubt it.

Note: I didn't start EBay for the money but for the experience of having customers or people who trades their hard earn money for some sort of value/need. (But I can tell you, Seeing money come in especially while sleeping makes me happierrrr and motivated ) Eventually Ebay will move from my main focus to a hobby and then wherever comes after that. Still in the planning phase for another idea.

2) Don't spend any money you make on yourself and reinvest it into the business.

2a.) I invested about $400.00 into starting EBay. But I did replenish my personal acct even when I had enough too. (Although at the beginning I did buy myself food and a fishing license but that's now changed). All the money goes back into inventory and expenses. Today My Ebay store runs on its own money. I have a card with PayPal and all transactions are done their and recorded.

Note: Although I don't put anymore money into Ebay and treasure hunting is super fun, I cannot pull my time away from it and sometimes I hate driving a manual car around town. Hence is why I said EBay was strictly for learning purposes only.

Do you think now I'm on the right path?

I'm not saying it is unrealistic in general.

It all depends on how and the time-frame.
IMO, it is unrealistic with the plan (or the lack thereof) the OP posted here
Cool. I stand corrected. We are on the same page

But how can you get a job without education?
@VentureVoyager, well I think this proves your point. Pretty impossible for OP.

@Vairavan ,let me ask you this. If you cant get a job without education, how will you convince people to give their hard earned money?

Before even asking this question, have you researched how you can do that?

I mean I can't get a white-collar job without an education.

Do you want me to clean tables?
