    Hi my name is JP and I'm 18 years old . I'm posting another intro ,because I didn't

    unlocked permission to post in another forum.

    My background is the following : I'm from Brazil and I'm poor . I have no skills , and I'm not

    going to college although it's the best education here is for free .

    The reason I'm no going to college is obvious , I wasn't born to be a slave .

    So what am I gonna do?

    I'm going to:

    -- Self taught me copy writing and marketing ;

    -- Read again TMF and Unscripted ;

    -- Solve a problem trying to not violate the commandments(CENTS) ;

    -- My only option is in the internet , bear in mind that I'm poor so I can't win in the physical world;

    -- It'll be probably an app.

    Feel free to leave your opnion ! I'll appreciate that.

    Also I would love to hear your thoughts about sleep , rest , and how many work hours a day is

    enough .

    Thank you @MJ DeMarco!!

    Peace and have a great day!

    Work as much as needed. Sleep as needed. These vary depending on the person and environment, you must find your own way with it.

    As for where you start, it doesn't matter. What's important is where you're going and keeping that in your mind constantly.

    Sleep is super important, I get at least 7-8 hours per day. About opportunities in Brasil I recommend you to get into translation/languages, you can start in Italki or other platform learning or teaching languages. For example teaching portuguese to foreigners that come to your country.

    Dude you can do literally anything you want. Don't limit yourself. Even if you're poor you can always raise more money.

    I like internet personally because of low overhead and freedom of working from my laptop, but that's just me.

    Lots of people here have very disciplined schedules. I don't really. I just wake up early and have a list of things I need to finish. I encourage you to experiment.

    I usually need to accomplish a lot in a day to not feel like sh*t. So that's my measure. Do enough in a day where you don't feel like sh*t about yourself.

    Sleep is pretty important. I try and get about 8, don't always though.

    If college is free and you're able to go I would.

    People still have faith in degrees and you might be able to network with others in college.

    Do you have internet at home or do you have to use a cafe?

    You have a home. You have internet. You have a notebook. You are young.

    JP, you have much more than many people in this world have so stop with the "I'm poor" excuse. If you still feel poor in 5 years from now it's only you to blame, no one else. Start creating :thumbsup:
