(Alright, I've spent time to make this post pretty-looking, so appreciate that :thumbup
How I Started
Hmm.. let's see. I started getting interested in HTML and the whole Internet thing when I was around 12 years old. Back then, Neopets was 'hip'. Since my dad was a computer scientist (or something)
, I started asking him a lot of questions about HTML and how the Internet works. The *real reason* behind all those questions I asked was always "I needed NP$!! (neo-points. aka neopets money) without working for it!".
A few weeks later I was one of the richest neopet users out there, and a master at HTML :sorcerer:.
(yes yes yes, I did give back the NP$ to whoever I borrowed them from. jeeze :001_rolleyes:.)
The very first website I built was Christian-Hosting.biz. It isn't up anymore, but here is an old cache version: CHB - 100% Free Ad-Less Christian Hosting
. I sold it for my very first $200 a good few months later, and that is exactly what got me started. One thing you should know about me is that I CAN NOT design. Nor can I program. I am tech-disabled, and all I really can do is get other people to do it for me.
I went from just a web developer to a web marketer, and later to become a website broker. There were so many distractions and other things happening, that if I didn't dedicate my self and push myself to focus on my projects, I wouldn't be anywhere close to where I am today.
Where I am Now
Now, 3 years later, I am the proud owner of the Kinkarso.com Network
, and own a number of powerful web presences, including...
LiveTV.ws - Watch Hundreds of Free Live Internet TV Channels - LiveTV.ws - Free Live Internet TV
BattleForums.com - Best Forum EVAH! - BattleForums.com
CreepColony.com - Your Source for StarCraft Strategies, Cheats, Bots, Downloads & More! - CreepColony.com
ChristianAvenue.org - Free Christian Support and Advice - ChristianAvenue.org
+ a few more..
I am currently raking in around $50 per day purely off of google adsense, a few hundred dollars from private advertisers per month (I won't get into the details here), and 1.5-2.5 thousand dollars from website brokering and misc services that I provide, each month (examples: The Kinkarso Network - Kinkarso.com
I am working on a large niche social networking-type website which is currently in production. This is something I have invested most of my income and time on, and will be released early next year.
Moral of the Story...
You know all of those ebooks on how you can make money quick and without any work? THEY LIE
:taz:! You will get nowhere if you do not pick something, and focus on it until it is complete. The keyword here is FOCUS
. I forgot where I read this but here you go:
ind a project.
ccupy yourself with this project.
oncentrate all your time on this project
nderstand that nothing is more important than this project.
uceed with this project.
There you have it. I hope you enjoyed my little story
