Hello everyone, my name is Zach! I've been coming to this site for a few years now (and I may or may not have made an account at some point over the years), and decided it was time to join. Now, I'm sure your wondering why I said that I'm newbie(ish), aren't you? Well, I stumbled across an eBook through an email back in 2007 at the ripe young age of 17, and it really caught my interest. I ended up buying that eBook about 2 weeks later from that TERRIBLE looking page that got stuck in my head. I paid exactly $50 for the eBook that *promised* I would make a living online in under a month. The massive 4 page eBook in huge font told me absolutely nothing. But, I was hooked on the topic and have been researching almost daily ever since. I consider myself a newbie(ish) because I know enough to not be NEW to it, but I have yet to make a profit. I've made sales, but not enough to get in the green, yet! (I'm only -$9.22 after almost 8 years as of right now).
Over the years I have researched and studied day after day thinking something would finally stick that worked for me. Everything I learned clearly worked, it just didn't work for me. To date I have tried: Youtube ads, affiliate marketing on both Facebook and Twitter, JV's on Twitter and Youtube, Facebook ads, starting a forum, Fiverr and a few other sites, flipping domains, along with MANY other things. Then I took a big hit...
The big hit hurt my ego and pride more then anything, and more then I could have imagined, and I admit, I gave up. It only lasted 2 weeks luckily, but it still counts. I spent close to 8 months putting together a good sized (267 pages plus a few bonuses) eBook, but the site never looked good, or when it looked good it flat out didn't work.. I got stuck trying to figure out how to deliver the products and boom! Tragedy struck... my laptop crashed and couldn't recover any of my files..
I now keep not one, but TWO flash drives with everything backed up.. I also learned a very good lesson on why NOT to over-clock a mid-low priced laptop..
HERE is the problem. I've been out of work since August and things are not looking good in my area. I have a 3 year old daughter that I have to travel to see (her mother splits the cost with me) and it took up every extra penny I had from my last job, which was one of the highest paying jobs in the area(I was also living without cable, internet, and in a run down house that I couldnt even afford to live in after the job loss). I am now a little over $22k in debt and at risk of seeing my daughter even less then I'm already able to. Her mothers job requires her to travel ALOT. So I am DESPERATE to find something that will work for my daughters sake. I'm not looking to get rich, or even anywhere close to it. I just need to be able to travel and be a bigger part in my daughters life. If anybody would be willing to help me out, even in the slightest way, I would greatly appreciate it. I know I have to be missing something. There HAS to be something I don't know about. I learn, I take action, I learn some more, but still lack results..
So the huge question is..
What am I missing?!
