Hi everyone, ( first of all sorry for my english)

im here on this forum for about a few months and i see that a lot of you guys are succeeding on different niches and businesses in the english markets.

The thing is that most of the type of execution that you guys are making can not be replicate in the italian market. The only thing that i learnt to apply here is to learn a high income skill and sell it and than making money from the skill and invest it in businesses

Since my background is marketing and sales as an amateur and my goal is to create a business empire here in italy, i decided that the skill that i will pursue is copyrighting (in italian of course)

BUT i need 5500 euro to learn this skill from the one and only direct response academy in italy.

So you guys will say " get a job and pay for this academy"... True im already searching for a job. The thing is that the paycheck you get here is maximum 1200 euro per month.

So i need to speed up the process and create a side hustle but here where my problem is. What side hustle i can do with a laptop and a few bucks?

Im looking right now at affiliate marketing but guys i feel lost, alone and there is nobody a can look for mentorship as everybody are scammers

Personal think you can that skill free by going through books and YouTube after which you can raise money through the some skill and also start to improve on it once the money come.i don't personal know of any books but a search on the can help you with that.

You don't need a €5.500 course to learn copywriting.

You need to learn the principles behind copywriting. You can learn them with a couple of books.

Start with No B.S. Direct Response Marketing by Dan Kennedy and Ca$hvertising by Drew Eric Whitman.

There are more advanced books too, but these two will be enough for a beginner.

Apply them to get your first copywriting gigs. Learn by doing.

Once you've gotten some money under your belt you can invest it into learning more about the craft. But it's not a necessary step by any means.

P.S. benvenuto :smile2:

That's good. But first, you need to secure yourself a "main" source of income. Once you know you have something you can rely on, you can start diversifying.

As we say in Italy...Non fare il passo più lungo della gamba.

First, master copywriting (for example). Then, once you secured your first steady source of income, start working on other ones.

What's great about copywriting is that you can use it in any future business.

It's normal to feel like you're doing something wrong. You see people every day who look like overnight successes. Some are genuine, others are just an illusion.

Regardless, don't compare yourself to others. It's too easy to fake wealth nowadays. Do the work. Trust the process. That's all there is to it. Success might never come, but at least you put in the effort to become successful.

And don't equate success to exotic cars and huge mansions. You have to define what success means for yourself. For some people, financial independence is more than enough. Others dream of building things bigger than them and change the world.

You have to be clear about your life's vision.

you are right

i compare myself to others a lot, because i have this sense or urgency and competition that might be good in the field but increase anxiety as well

yeah one thing at the time maybe the best strategy

thanks a lot

Like it! I am learning an Italian right now i love this language and this quote is so good i save it in my notebook. Someday i want to experience and live here. Amalfi e bellissima!

I think it is very hard for young people not to make "bigger step than a leg" i also fight with that thinking. It requires a lot of self discipline, understand that the process is the more important rather than single event (buying a course).

From my experience i can agree with that too. Secure your self as much as you can it is so important. If you have any troubles with new business in the future it will be much more easier to survive rather that you goes out on a limb.
