Hi guys, I wanna keep this as short and uncomplicated as possible.

I wanna stop F*cking around and finally get the results that I want in business!

Here a quick overview of my life so far:
  • 14 - end of 19, going to construction school and wasting 6 years of my life, I redo 2 years of school and didn't even finish it
  • end of 19 - mid 21, frustrated finding solutions on how to make money online, started affiliate marketing but failed miserably
  • mid 21 - end 23 (now) I started a marketing agency, but poor executing, business breaking down multiple times, new lead gen strategies failing, poor backend, (it's like a rollercoaster, I achieve a certain point and then I fall back down)

Biggest problems
  • I don't have money to make money
  • 10k in debt
  • I wanna move out from my parent's place
  • Addiction to social media that F*cks up my life
Solutions ( I wanna achieve at the end of this thread)
  • Scale my agency to 5k revenue per month
  • pay 5k of dept
  • Move out
  • Full control of my life (be independent!)
I probably will have to get a part-time job, since I really f*cked up the relationship with my family and they won't give me any money more, which is totally fine and I understand that. I don't want to be a punk anymore

I don't know how I will achieve some of these tasks yet but I will figure out a solution

I wanna solve all these problems by the 1st July 2020 (in 76days from now)

I will post weekly (every Saturday/Sunday) what I did that week and what I will do next week (basically review my week and plan my week)

I don't want to waste my time anymore, I wanna do the things I always wanted to

I also wanna promise with this post to myself that I will never ever be again in this situation that I am right now and it will go up from here.

The goal is to take massive action!

Ps.: If anyone has advice on how to solve any of my problems or suggestions on my solutions, please don't hesitate to write them. They are more than welcome!
Pss.: Please hold me accountable

Good luck in your journey. I'll be following.

Some potential solutions -
  • Addiction to social media that F*cks up my life - Delete your personal social media accounts. I know you probably need access for your clients' accounts though.
Getting a part time job isn't a bad idea short term to help getting your debts cleared.

Have a good plan how to scale up to 5k a month, break it down and reverse engineer the process on how you'll achieve that.

Hi Mario. Good luck.

  • I don't have money to make money
  • 10k in debt
  • I wanna move out from my parent's place
  • Addiction to social media that F*cks up my life
Well, I would say part of your problem helps you with your solution. Since you're still living with your parents I am guessing your expenses are on the lower end. So, try to get a part-time job (or even full-time) and tackle the debt. If your living situation is bearable, I would not move out, before the debt is paid back.

For your marketing agency, choose one service (ie google ads or facebook ads) and one niche. And become the expert.

Best of luck man! You can do it.

The business sounds like a great learning-curve, so keep that up. Failing = learning = developing!

Just as a secondary, and I don't want to cause any confusion... But since you're struggling with social media --> this is also a problem many people probably have. It is impacting their work and personal lives. There's also opportunities here to help people. Just an idea.

Gogo!

Thank you man!

Due to the addiction, I have blockers on my phone and laptop so I can't access it even if I want to. And in terms of FB, I have no news feed (also a Chrome plugin). It just comes down to be fully in control on my life, I can uninstall these blockers but who am I fooling with this then? Myself, and I don't want this. I want to be completely honest with this thread
I already have a plan and reverse engineer it :) Thats great advice btw

Yes my expenses are very low and no I will definitely not move before the dept is paid

Week 2 (20.04.20-26.04.20)

Alright guys, so basically everything changed this week.

I will get a fulltime job in a call center and practice outbound sales

Approximately I will get 1,5k salary per month.

I need to do this for at least 4 months before I start business again (first to get rid of debt outside of family debt and second to have money so I can make money threw my marketing agency)

But I plan to do it for 5-6 months.

But for the next 3-4 months, I will only focus on my job

Then I will have a positive cash flow again and things will be much easier again.

This week I will get a fulltime job, I have no idea how that works but I will figure it out.

So as I already can tell this thread will be older than 76 days

I will keep you, updated guys, as I said every week

I think this is the best thing I can do right now

Plan for Week 3

- Get a full-time job in a call center

Week 3 (27.04.20-03.05.20)

Alright guys, no major update.

I am still looking for a job, I applied to some sales jobs and had interviews.

I should hear back from them this week.

I also learn new stuff about sales (atm I am reading "the only sales guide you'll ever need)

My whole focus is now on sales (get a job at it and learn it better to become really sharp)

Plan for Week 4

- Get a full-time job in a call center

Week 4-5 (04.05.20-16.05.20)

Alright guys, I am progressing slower than I thought.

I got declined a couple times (job) due to no experience.

I will cold call now all companies in my city until i have a job

Also I changed my mind and I will get a apartment in a city. I cannot live at home anymore. Maybe some will think i am complaining but my progress in life and overall happiness is better if i am not with my family. So i am visiting the upcoming week 2 apartments for very cheap (390€ per month).

I messed up again, due to bad dopamine addiction and I hate myself for that tbh. Not being in full control of life sucks. But the last 72h i am dopamine free (no social media, tv, Netflix, bad foods, etc etc.) And I feel amazing and been doing more in the last 72h than in the last week.

It's embarrassing to write this actually

Plan for Week 6

- Get a job!
- Get an apartment!
