    17 Year Old Starting Business to Make $15,000 + Per Month in Less Than 9 Months

    Introduction
    Hey guys,
    I'm a seventeen-year-old guy from Poland that joined this forum 15 days ago. From then on I've read some golden posts about: hustling, copywriting and of course "Making $15,000 + Per Month in Less Than 9 Months".

    After reading this threads I decided that it's enough and I took action:
    • I've set up my Ebay account, because I'm planning to sell on it things from my grandparents' attic. Also, I've already put on sale my old phone and computer parts.
    • I've completed Code Academy Course.
    • I just started "How to Make a Killer Website" course on Udemy.
    • I've published offer on an online site that I am doing private English lessons for youngsters. Unluckily I don't think it will bring any attention (there is to many tutors on this site). Still, I think that I can bring attention to my offer in few ways, but I don't know if it's worth my time. Let me know what do you think about this guys.


    I want to be making 15,000$ per month to:

    • feel secure in my future, knowing that I can always make 15,000$ per month if my situation becomes desperate.
    • feel how it is to be an entrepreneur, expand my knowledge and decide if I want to be one.
    • fuking do something besides learning in this bullshit called school.
    • convince my family that I don't need to go to college to be successful.
    • make my first step towards accomplishing my long term not reasonable at all dream which is to open a non-profit and make Poland greatest country to live in.


    My plan
    • After I'm finished learning web development I will upgrade my uncle's web page for free. He has 30 person trading company and years of experience in the business. I will work on his page until he loves it. After this, I will ask him if he can recommend me to some of his friends, or business partners. Then there is to many variables to predict what will I do next, but I can start to work internationally to triple my pay rate or figure it out differently.
    • After getting my car license I will probably go to local homes sales and hustle to see how it is. But I don't know how will it go yet, because soonest I can get my license is 3 months.
    • I am going to start a Polish blog about my journey that I will write to 30 minutes a day.


    Requests
    • If you have any forum posts or external links to recommend that are about hustling, web development or starting a blog, please do.
    • Also, I would love to know your opinion on my English, what are my mistakes and how can I possibly improve it.
    • If you have any tips or thoughts about all of this I would appreciate feedback.

    My thoughts exactly:

    1. Go for it and do all that can be done each day - get to the point where if you are not taking action you feel uncomfortable.
    2. Don't worry about what your parents think, it's normal and trying to convince them of what you are doing will just waste time you could be using on taking action. Don't even tell them what you are doing - let your action talk for you. Most people, unless you are lucky, will only try and talk you out of doing something different like this.
    3. School is an enormous waste of time and won't help much with doing entrepreneurial things, unless you want to go to college. But don't drop out unless you have an obvious way to make money. Just spend every free second you have learning and working on your business until then.
    4. Take it one step at a time and focus on what is right in front of you - have a plan every single day and execute that plan. Eventually things will fall into place if you are not stupid.
    5. Don't be too worried about getting things right the first time, you are 17. Focus on getting experience, testing the waters and having fun along the way.
    6. Go to bed a little wiser every night.

    Hope that helps! :)

    That's a motivator, thanks man.
    It assured me that I'm doing the right things.

    Yesterday, on a weekend, I spent 8 hours with my family, I was enjoying myself, but in the back of my head there was this voice "You could have learned so much in this 8 hours you lazybones." So, I guess I am already feeling uncomfortable when not taking action.

    Yea, almost every day to remind myself what I want to accomplish I watch
    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FnfyyABag3s
    .

    Do you think that I should have every hour planned or just goal for a day? For example, my today's goal is to learn as much as possible from Udemy course.

    Find what works for you in regards to planning your days - but regardless of how you feel or what has happened each day, always do one thing that gets you closer towards your goal. Always be in motion.

    So, and take this in the spirit it's given, but you're focusing on the wrong things, and trying to go in multiple directions at once.

    About 80 times a day, someone comes on here and says, "I'm going to be making XX,XXX/mo by 3 weeks, 4 days and 8 hours from now. It never goes down like that. Why? You're focusing on the wrong things. Forget about arbitrary dollar targets for now and find a need and learn some skills.

    You mentioned that you have an uncle that has a trading business that you're doing the web design for. If your uncle will let you work for him for free, why not work for him in the trading business for free? You'll get to participate in (international?) trade at a very young age. You'll gain knowledge and skills that will pay off for life.

    BTW, your English is fantastic for someone still very young. You're clearly a bright and motivated dude. Don't let yourself get dragged off chasing squirrels in 5 different directions.

    Setting those high monetary goals turns out to be ridiculous and unrealistic. However, it's a good way for a beginner to learn as much as he can! Go for it!

    I agree. You can work on the website and ask him to work for him too. There is no better way. I used to work for free at your age helping my friend's parents finish their house. Eventually they paid me something anyway but I didn't do it for money. I highly recommend you doing it. Start from the very bottom - that's how the smartest of the richest do it. They take their kids at age of 10 or so and show them what they do.

    Why do you think it's ridiculous and unrealistic? For me, it's only the first step.

    I hope that this thread will be worth your time. ;)

    For now, I'm doing interval training once per 2-3 days for 15 minutes. I want to deal with my health after I start earning 5.000$ per month because then I will have more freedom in my choices.

    For first I want to thank you guys for your help.

    And for a second I want to sorry because I think that I didn't provide enough information surrounding my uncles business, so here I go:
    So I wanted to write a lot of info right here, but I think that it's inappropriate to post info about my uncle's business online, so I won't do it.

    A short sum up:
    I think that my uncle's business is actually slowlane. He is kinda trapped in it because of credit, I don't like the vibe in his firm, he doesn't take me as serious as I would like to and he is telling me to learn Russian and German because he thinks that's the most important thing for me to do. Knowing all this I decided to solo learn the business.

    I really appreciate your help and I can see that you spent a lot of time figuring out how to give me the best advices.


    You are right man. You just are. I decided that's pointless and now I'm focusing only on my web business.

    I'm sorry because I didn't clear out things as I should have. I know that focusing on money will bring me to demise, but I am focusing on things that money can give me and that's:

    I think that after a month of hustle not much changed in terms of my goals besides that I don't need 15.000 $, but only 5.000 $ to achieve my goals. So I'm gonna get where I want in less than 2 months.
