Hi guys,

I'm new to this forum. Just a brief introduction of myself, I've been much business before and it failed. Insurance sales agent, Amazon FBA, now I'm kinda all over the place recently.

I'm 22 years old, my plan was to make it in Fiverr as a sweat equity person, once I hit $5,000 in revenue. I'll start doing Shopify by using 1 product store method. Then from there scale it up then going into Amazon FBA E-Commerce which requires a ton of capitals to start around with.

How's my plan guys?

The problem is I don't have sales coming in my Fiverr accounts, I've run some Google Ads & Fb Ads here and there but nothing significant coming out.

I've learned from many internet marketers from YouTube like Alex Becker, Damian Prosalendis, Dan Lok, Neil Patel, Tanner J Fox (Amazon FBA) and so on.

I've also read dozens of books and going courses from courses like Tai Lopez 12 Foundations to The Good Life, The Millionaire Fastlane (MJ Demarco), Unscripted (Haven't finished it yet).

But the information is so overwhelming and I'm kinda in the shining object syndrome.

Any tips would help this 22-year old university student get success in the online marketing world would be a dream come true for me.

My aspiring materialistic goals was able to buy a Lamborghini Aventador SV in my 20's. Even if I didn't buy it but the means to able to afford it like paying in cash without worrying it like a big deal was the goal to it for me.

Hope any veterans out there already "seen & lived the dream of mine" give any advice to me how to make it big in this online marketing world in 2019 and beyond.

How to gain focus and clarity on the ONE thing that can help me to get the Lambo money (I know just this comment alone can get me a lot of bashes and short-sighted views)

But, I really need some guidance on how to look at a glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel.

Thank you very much.

Have you made $1 dollar from your desperation of shining object syndrome?
Yes, I made some money here and there, a couple dollars and hundreds but it wasn't like something mesmerizing like a couple thousand that make me like "wow, this thing got a lot of potentials and go from there"

So, you ask for help in a forum that is filled with just virtual bags of cash in the form of information. My advice is stop asking, and start reading!

[edit] I'm sure the guys will link you to useful threads, but you can easily do that yourself. Search it up brother

Welcome by the way.

Solving Pain
You must focus on removing ONE daily frustration for someone else. Then, refine the steps to save time and resources. Next, keep working on that and refining your reputation to keep people coming back and referring you. Finally, keep scaling or shift to a more raw need to fill.(Stop trying to be everything. Excel at one thing at a time.)

Building up little broken pieces and fixing them takes you further than bright shiny objects.

Right now you are spazzing around like a fiend. Quit all the internet gurus. They merely offer money chasing illusions to addicts.

What percent of the Gold and Notable threads on this forum have you read?
When that reaches over 75%, report back and see if you have some refined questions that we can help you with on your journey.

If that nicer version did not work......... instead of asking for a handout, get to work.

Thank you for the reply sir, I'm very honor by your reply sir. and all the members who replied to me.

Did you get to the part where there says there is no F*cking list?

I have no idea what that means TBH.

Unfortunately, sir, although I've read books to books from cover to cover. After a while, I'll forget parts of the books and remember the important park like the CENTS framework.

Now currently I'm re-reading the classic Millionaire Fastlane .

I want to ask sir I'm going through the part where you talk about the Passivity of the income. which do you think is the low cash intensive business model and also high passivity. I think SAAS or software like this forum is a great way for evergreen income but this model requires a lot of cash-intensive to start.

If you sir were to start from 22 like me all over again, nothing with your name on it and $200 in your bank account and living with parents and studying full-time in university (like I am right now). what would you do to get the Freedom Fastlane lifestyle and money?

I'm not a total beginner into this entrepreneurship, but now currently in the lost, hopeless, directionless making $4 dollars per month on Fiverr with only 1 order.

Failed Amazon FBA E-commerce lost of my life $2000

Failed Insurance Agent for 2 years

Running FB Ads & Google Ads in hope people would buy my Amazon Affiliate links from YouTube to get rich quick but it's not away from the reality.

Looking at Info Marketing says its the best opportunity, but you need to build an audience list first that like what you sell and that takes a long time.

Dropshipping, you need investment for FB Ads and paid advertising.

Digital Marketing Agency, selling time for money, using the human resource to manages the business.

Affiliate Marketing, you need to have a list build up overtime only then you can monetize it

I'm not sure all of this is reasons or excuses to not get started at all or something.

The thing I wanted to say is I don't want to waste time to go and do all these things and see which one works.

I don't have confidence MJ and these so many opportunities and distractions around and information at the internet.

I don't know where to get started and get going, sir. I think MJ already passed through that phase 2 decades ago and living another type of life and another set of "problems" right now

If you can go back and tell yourselves how to get the success 100x faster, what would you do? and what would I can learn from it.

Sometimes I think the best advice is can get directly from the person itself like you sir.

(At least I've done my best mum, to ask the man, hope MJ would reply to this)

Thank you very much, sir and guys, around this forum.
