    Looks like you have some SEO going on with your blog, so that is good. I would change the permalink structure to take out the numbers and get the keywords closer to the domain name ( %post_name%.html ... I think ) on all of your blogs.

    I see you are linking off to your social Web 2.0 stuff to spread your net even further, so that is good also.

    $250,000 in 16 weeks is a ambitious goal.

    How, in general, are planning on making it? I hope not by selling just in the IM niche?

    By the way, the link in your sig is messed up.

    Good luck!

      Nothing at all...

      As long as you can sell valuable information that is practically implementable, you can sell anything.

      All the best... Just a thought... Why not involve other warriors into it? Maybe collectively 3-4 brains of similar aptitude can make over a million dollars a lot easier.

    Well what has been your success thus far? To be frank, if you believe you can hit 250k in 16 weeks I would guess you have already had some substantial success in IM.

    Good luck.

    I don't know what kind of marketing you're into or what your skills are so specific advice is a little redundant, so the only advice I'll give you is to take as much action as you can every single day.

    You'll be surprised what you accomplish.

    Once this works, why would you want to go to law school? Scale, rinse and repeat. Unless of course you like spending 50 hours a week reading legalese!

    Wow! I really hope you make it. I thought my goal was lofty when I set out to pay off $72,900 worth of debt in 2 years with IM. If you can make $250k in 16 weeks i'd love to read how you did it.

        I know this sounds a little strange, but some people actually do things because they enjoy it. I know, I know, you are thinking no way. They must all do it for the money. Well, my friend, that isn't the case for everyone.


        I do believe that when someone does something just for the money the odds are they will not succeed.

            My sister is a lawyer and doesn't make six figures. She loves her job.

                I used to cover the court beat and I know a lot of lawyers who love their jobs. I still may go to law school some day, and yes, even if I were making a fortune, I would at least want to work as a lawyer a few days a week. It's fascinating. It's challenging. I don't always find internet marketing to be so. I don't hate IM or I wouldn't do it, but there are more interesting jobs out there.

                I think the point if flying over your head. Yes, she would still want to be a lawyer. It isn't all about money.

People on the WF use that "Declaration" method a lot, but I think it works a little better when you say stuff that you actually have control over, like the number of hours you work.

        And besides that, why on earth would you go to law school if you did actually make $250k in 16 weeks. That's $812k per year and I don't know many lawyers making that.
        I think you bring up a great point. But as stated, he seems to have a firm grasp of IM but lacked focus.

        I honestly believe that most of us here on this forum suffer from the same problem. We all have the knowledge to succeed in IM, but lack the focus. By him making a declaration...it is, in his opinion, forcing him to "get on the ball" and focus.

        There isn't too many peple on this forum that can't go out armed with what they already know and make money online this week. But if you don't go out and do it, you'll never know.

        And if he wants 250k in 16 weeks but only makes 75k...is that a failure? I think not. Because the habits he will form in these coming 16 weeks will ensure him a profitable foundation in which to stand on.

          Good luck with your challenge.

          But why are you shooting for $250K? Law school tuition isn't anywhere near that, even for all 3 years at the best schools.

          As to getting a scholarship, make sure you go to visit the school. You'd be surprised how much scholarship and grant money is sitting in the Admissions Office for anyone who asks, especially if you have an offer from one or more competing schools. The LSATs alone aren't the only criterion.

          Make sure the admissions and financial aid people understand how motivated you are, how interested you are in their school, and just how you plan to use their education to achieve your career goals.

          It also doesn't hurt to mention that you'd like to "give back" after you graduate. The top schools love their contributing alumni.

          Call this "Plan B" for funding. If both the challenge and the scholarship come through, you could be sitting pretty.

          Best of luck,

          Debbie

    Well I hope you are successful...

    Nothing is impossible, if you have the will and an innovative dont give up attitude.

    Goals are important, a wise man once told me that when building a house you dont put the roof on first, you build a foundation.

    Then you put up the walls, and you work you want into building a house the right way.

    In other words work within the frame work of what you know you can do.

    That made an impression on me, that was back in 1979 and I have never forgotten that lesson.

    I know it is possible, because I have seen it happen, in fact just recently selling only to MAC software users, one group raised, $349,000.00 in one week.

    Wow, that is just for MAC users, imagine what you could do if you had both windows and MAC versions of software.

    Nothing is impossible, but if you find that 16 days is not enough time to develop the right framework, don't give up.

    Sure a team of seven guys, made $349,000.00 in seven days.

    But, they had a network setup in advance, setup cost, server cost.

    $4500.00
    $1872.00 additional bandwidth costs, managed server.

    Cost of developing the software they sold, 1892 man hours, at 79.62 per hour, cost, $150,000.00

    Ecommerce costs, transaction costs, $28,792.63

    While these guys did a fantastic job on this, they had a plan, and they planned this out one year in advance of this event.

    So when it was time to build the house they were ready.

    Best of luck, but in reality, luck has nothing to do with it, in reality,

    it is all about how well you plan ahead and finding the resources that you need when you need them...

    Hope you found this helpful..
