What are the best resources for growing an online business?
Start here, and don't forget to rep+ the authors, these threads rock:
Also, keep an eye out for my YT thread to be bumped, which is going to be updated in the next couple days on the inside. It will include mini articles about boosting an IG and Twitter account, driving traffic to your website, etc.
For everyone else, did the last year transform your life into what you want, or further conform your life to its current status quo? Answer that question, and you know where you're headed next year. It's not too late to put your turn signal on.
I don't want to put anyone in bad mood, but $1625 isn't so little as you may think.
I live in Eastern Europe and I earn about $600 in one MONTH, an equivalent of ~$2.5 per hour. That's correct, even then you were making 5x more money each month than I am now.
And I'm also investing money in learning the ropes of affiliate marketing, that costs nearly all my monthly earnings.
PS And that's not my excuse, that's my motivation.
Wanted to update this thread. Look like my bank has been selling my personal info. An invitation to sign up for one of these came in the mail today:
It's a visa card made out of titanium and carbon fiber. The agreement came packaged in a beautiful, enormous black envalope. "Wow, a metal credit card. Just like the investment bankers and football players have! And only $500/yr, so reasonable!"
No. It's meant to look like a Centurion card, but it most definitely is not.
So I guess I'll add this on here too: No sooner do you create value than a horde of people rush in to take it away with ego-inflating cars, clothes, and watches and the like. Case in point, in everything but appearance, this card is demonstrably worse than the card I already have, which is free. The struggle to break free of the slow lane mindset of "use your resources to consume rather than to produce" continues on. You can't out exercise a bad diet, and you can't out-earn sidewalkian spending patterns. Buying things to make yourself look rich often lead to a worse outcome than if you'd just consumed more normal items. Case in point, for the cost of a PS4, I could have gotten a worse credit card than the one I already have, just for the ego boost of getting to wave it at retail employees.
Resist this nonsense. Learn and overcome.
I held on to my AMEX Black Card longer than needed because it promised upgrades to first class on airplane tix. Then I realized, I rarely traveled. Now I just buy the first class ticket. And now when I dine out at a fine restaurant, the waitress doesn't default to thinking that she will get a 50% tip.
The only thing I miss about it is watching your level of service from the waitstaff go from "disinterested" to "Yes sir, no sir, anything else sir?"
Yeah, but again, you had a real Centurion Card. This is just an imitation, inviting people to "look the part," when all it does is help them part with their money.
OP was it one business venture you stuck to the whole year, or multiple ventures?
