    Hi i am new to this forum and in this thread i will be posting all progress i make towards my final goal.
    My Goals:
    • Start a business within a year
    • Make 5k this year strictly from online freelancing or the business
    • Develop the business and produce 20k before i am 20
    • Use all saved money to further expand whatever it is that i eventually start
    So how am i going to start well at the moment i have $0 to my name literally 0 i am applying pretty much everywhere to get a part time job i can do on weekends and after school, i plan on saving most of this money so i can start my business. In the meantime i am constantly researching and learning the best way to approach my goal and finding what i will sell. I doubt posts on this thread will be regular for the start but they will gradually become more frequent.

    I am also relearning all the web development i learnt in school to help me when it comes to freelancing and making a site for myself hopefully.

    For most website designs for customers, you can use squarespace.com, or wix.com. Both are low cost and easy to set up. They will also free up your time because they are easy for customers to navigate and edit small things without your interaction. Those services also allow you to add custom CSS and other code if you desire.

    As a guy who has a Computer Science degree, I am finding that unless your are building a unique software business system, (SaaS) in depth knowledge of code is not necessary. Since you sound like you are still in school, I would focus on speaking with some of your friends parents and see if any of their small businesses need a website created. You can also earn monthly income with things like google adword services (check out @andyblack for lessons on that) and other services to drive traffic. Those mentioned services are more than capable of providing what you need to preform website building and hosting.

    I am def. not saying software knowledge is not important, and you should pursue it. However, it is NOT necessary to begin gathering your customer base and knowledge, so don't let it stop you!

    All the best my friend!

    Hey appreciate it man but lack of knowledge is not my issue i spent 3 years at school learning strictly web design and could create a website from scratch with no issues its just after a years break i seem to have forgotten alot of stuff so just spending a week or two refreshing my memory as for using wix and sites like it it is certainly something i will use my only issue at the moment is finding customers deciding whether locating customers myself is a good option or using a freelance site.

    Update: Been messing around with some crypto trading and managed to make a solid $312 this week. Looking like making 5k this year solely online may be a possibility.

    Just to add i have been researching the cryptomarkets for months and have good knowledge when trading i do not think trading is a good idea if you haven't researched before and this is not my main plan in life this is just a small bit of extra cash on the side.

    Ok so another update i have been trading pretty much all day every day these last few weeks of august and i on average have made 15% a week, my goal for the coming year is to steadily make 5% a week and secure some profit at the end of the month i am not starting with a lot of money but 5% a week adds up quick so im hoping and working for the best. Still looking into other things such as a drop shipping business i had planed and if i can get that started on the trading profits and continue to trade then i will now have 3 income streams still a long way to go and a lot of work to be done.

    School work has been really stacking up this year so put around the $800 i had made into a smaller cryptocurrency (trig) in early September and to be honest completely forgot about it along with this forum, i became the person i said i wouldn't when i joined someone who comes on here posts their dream then leaves. Today as i was looking at my balance from my job the past month and a half i remembered the investment i had made and to my absolute surprise that small sum of $800 was now sitting there at $3200 :). This was an absolute shock to me as this was something i had completely forgot i had invested in, so in summary today i learnt the importance of patience yeah sure i could've kept day trading and had a few ups and downs but in the end i just held that one currency for the month and when you look at the chart sure there are many many ups and downs but when you zoom out all you see is a positive pattern just like in life sure there will be some ups and downs along the way but just zoom out and look at the bigger picture.

    Goal for this year : $5000
    Current sum : $3500

    Almost 2 months since my last post and i am happy to say i reached my yearly goal! The value of bitcoin more than doubled since my last post and now i can happily say i surpassed my goal for this year. Crypto trading was not how I expected things to go but turned out for the best, still have other plans this is only the start but i can safely say 2017 was a successful year.
    Goal for this year : $5000
    Current sum : $6270

    I have not posted an update to this in almost 8 months so here it goes. Despite a serious decline in the value of crypto since my last post on Dec 1 I have still managed to more than double the sum I began with in December, however, the last couple of months I have just been losing money consistently so I am looking into making a more solid income stream such as freelancing that does not rely on good market conditions like trading does. I will give UpWork another go and see how that turns out.

    Goal for 2017: $5000
    End of 2017: $7400

    Goal for 2018: $25,000
    Current Sum: $14,190
