I am new to the Warrior Forum. I have lurked for a while and finally decided to join this community. There's nothing like it on the internet. The people here are truely wonderful and helpful from all the threads I have read. The people here treasure their integrity so you don't see a bunch of scams and lies. No need to wade through tons of internet sites trying to figure out what is legit and what's not. I feel like I have kind of hit the jackpot here lol
But a little about myself (Just saw Steven Wagenheim's thread about newbie mistakes and tips when they join the forum, and one of his tips was telling everyone a little about yourself) I am a 20 year college student. I was doing Pre-Med and Biology, but I changed my major to Business and Communications (parents arn't too happy about that one). I got interested in IM about a year ago. I first read the 4 Hour Work Week by Tom Ferris which I love. It opened up my eyes to the possibility of generating income online. Since I was a slight computer geek anyway I thought this was great. That's when the research began. I was reading the thread yesterday about things you wish you knew when you first started IM and the biggest one was Just do it. That really hit me because even up until yesterday I had been researching. There is sooo much to know and my brain is still trying to get it all to fit together you know? Like using back links and the right keywords and getting my site up and just so much. I know I want to get into builidng niche websites and selling affliate products through them.
So here I am ready to take the steps. Ready to get my sites up and going (I finally got some money for hosting and outsourcing articles). I am not sure of the other money making opportunities yet because like I said there is so much info out there and its hard to place it all.
This is why I would LOVE a mentor. Someone who is genuine and enjoys helping other. Who won't mind ALL my questions because I am very inquisitive. Someone who is established in the game. I WILL not waste your time, because you could be doing something better lol like making more money. I will bring dedication and a strong work ethic to the table and hopefully we will both be able to learn along the way.
One of the main reasons I am doing IM is to build something for myself for the future and to help my family. I know what its like to grow up not having much or not being able to do things because there are a lack of funds. I also want to get to a place where I can help my mother out. She does soooo much for me and I know an extra income would help her out tremendously.
Sooo, here I am Warrior Forum. Im glad to be apart of the movement.
