Greetings!

Former lurker here taking his execution to finally harness the power of these boards.

I recall sitting at my comfy corporate job skimming through threads on the fast lane for days and days on end reading stories of execution, brilliant ideas, prospects, success stories, and failures. I found misery at my comfortable corporate job as I knew for a long time this life is not meant for me and I emitted that energy.

As a 12-year-old with a childhood of trauma growing up poor in Brooklyn as a first generation American born of my family I always pursued work the smart way. I started with the GPT offers completing spam surveys for pennies then to referring hundreds of other fools to then shifting gears to affiliate marketing the black hat way. I managed to rake in thousands in a matter of 2 weeks posting jobs on craigslist which lead to affiliate offers via CJ.com, I thought I had it all figured out, the formula to wealth and then the TOS violations came in and my easy paycheck denied.

Then I started with the eBay flipping, the drop shipping before it was saturated and even Alibaba imports as a 14-year old. Went pretty well but then adulthood came and then untreated trauma caught up to me where all hustling went on a standstill. Followed the slow lane with a pompous arrogance that this path was not for me but with no execution or results to show for it.

Went to college, graduated, got a bs comfy 60k, benefit corporate job, served 2 years and I F*@(KI*G hated it. I spent my days reading but not executing but eventually, enough was enough and I decided to quit - 6 months ago in NYC with student debt, absurd cost of living, maxed out credit cards and no savings.

Shit was not easy but I know by blood I am an entrepreneur, it is in my spirit ever since I was a kid and to wake that primal part of me and reject our societal conditioning to be workers I put myself in a position of survival and guess what-

Things are going great now

I learned how to develop websites, I learned how to create designs, I executed on my passion for sales and I sold these things before I even knew how to get them done. I created formulas and I automated, I made friends, connections and partners.

A few months pass by and now I have a digital agency with medium scale clients and an overwhelming amount of projects which I also need to figure out how to get done but I know I will. The path is looking good and today is the day I am no longer a lurker and am happy to finally introduce myself.

This is a great community and I am looking forward to learning and contributing.

I lurked from the time the forum first started to whenever i finally registered...... not sure what got me fired up to post that day .... maybe it was @SteveO ?

welcome! Come in. Contribute.

maybe start by fleshing out some things you learned while lurking .... both that worked and didn't work. :)

Awesome! You have a very compelling story.

Honestly, I don't think lurking is so bad. You become a much better contributor for having lurked for a while before posting. There's so much to read here that you can get tons of value before you ever realize that you've found an unanswered question to ask.

Best of luck! Stay hungry.
