Its now 2 months and I am only learning and learning.
But I needed to earn something to match up with my expenses on cafe , I tried sites like elance , fiverr but no response, made a product but can't sell on WSO because I just came to know that it requires to be war room member.
made 2 blogs and tried adsense nd affiliate marking , but no traffic so no income .. I learned about things like linux cookies proxy hacking.. and I am good in these but ultimately no money..
Now I have nothing to spend on cafe soon my parents will come to know my deeds and will punish me.
About me; i am a 16 year old boy, my parents sent me to another city to study and i live in a PG , I didn't attended my classes because instead spent my food's and book's money on cafe. now in 20 days they will come to knnow evrything when they will come here.

Can You guys tell me how you earned or how can I earn ??

My parents will be stunned when they will know that they spent all of their money on me ( literally all). But I thought I can help them. Now i failed. and i have wasted all of their money and became nothing...... infinity......

    I thought how people can do suicide but now I feel sometimes suicide seems the best way to escape problems when you can't face them.

    Amit,

    I've been good to you sunshine,

    Let me tell me your problem.

    You believe this is an industry that makes cash overnight.

    It's not. Like nothing is without hardwork and perseverence.

    I told you it took me two years to earn any money. 2 years. That's not to say it's not hard to do better but why do you think you should earn all this in days?

    I told you to do the Challenge and you came back after days and said "I've done it, what now?"

    Didn't you learn anything?

    Come on Amit, you couldn't have done it. Tell me now all you've learned on that course. You followed the course precisely? Where is your site then? Show me how you did what I told you?

    You didn't. I'm on Skype now, I'll PM you my address. I'd like you to tell me about what you've learned.

    If you can, I'll help you but no more of this suicide stuff, it won't work.

    You're young and alive, that's better than a lot of people.

    All I see in that post is a collection of excuses.

    Stop using such negative language and actually believe in yourself and you'll start to see results. The only person keeping you from earning is you.

      Well Amit,

      I hope you're ok but that's in your hands now.

      I've tried and I've seen lots of people try and help you, time you helped yourself sir.

      Hey you're still a kid. 16 right? We all have done stupid things as teenagers and the very best thing you can do is tell your parents the truth and apologize. Own your mistake and don't give them excuses. Apologize and get back to school. No amount of money can replace your education.

      Here's what you do. You man up and tell your parents what you have done. You have a heavy weight on your shoulders, as does everybody that carries a big lie. Once you fess up and tell them the truth, a big part of that weight will be lifted. Maybe you should consider writing this all down and sending your parents a good old fashioned letter.

      You screwed up. There is no question about it. Well, guess what, it won't be the last time that you screw up in life. Life is all about learning from your mistakes. The fact that you talked about suicide is a little scary. This may seem like the end of the world to you right now, but once you take your punishment, this will be chalked up as a learning experience... and one that you will someday laugh about.

    Don't fear the reaper.

    Stand up and take responsibility for your actions.

    You ****ed up. Tell your parents the truth, and resolve to earn their trust again.

    You are 16. It has come time for you to man up.

    Because if you cannot find the courage to do so, you are on a road to more grief and failure.

    Do you think your parents will be Happier if you add insult to injury?

    You screwed up and to error is human. Tell them or someone that they will listen to what
    you have done. Be honest and forget the negative thoughts of "The End".

      Damn, you've got yourself into some serious trouble, BUT suicide is not the answer!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Especially not over this (over nothing actually)

      The best thing you can do is tell your parents. Be honest. Will they get mad? Yes! But somehow parents always manage to forgive. You're their child.. No matter how much you mess up, your parents are your parents and they will always love you. It may take a while but they will forgive you eventually.

      We all make mistakes, that's part of life. Trust me, I've done things even worser than this when I was a little younger. Do you know how many times my parents told me they never ever want to see me again? Countless times!! And yet they are still the people closest to me.

      I'm sure things will work themselves out. Tell them. Get a job. Pay them back. Get back to school (Can't believe I'm actually saying this,but this time, I'll keep my real opinion and how I really feel about going to school to myself as it's of little relevance here). And most importantly, don't give up on internet marketing.

    Not sure what country you live in Amit but be prepared for a hiding, (it doesn't hurt for long).

    I am a lot older than you so let me give a piece of advice. Get an education first, I will write that again.
    GET AN EDUCATION FIRST.

    I didn't, (not because I didn't want to) and have regretted it all my life.

    In the world today this is so vitally important, and becomes more so as time passes.

    Without an education you have nothing to fall back on, and your only employment will be an endless procession of crummy jobs which you will hate every minute of (trust me again, I know).

    Study hard and learn harder, one day you will understand what having a decent education means, and the freedom and respect it gives you.

    Forget the suicidal thoughts lad, you're too young to be thinking of that.

    If you have these thoughts a lot, PLEASE go and see a doctor and tell him, or find a teacher or someone you can talk to about things.
    Suicidal thoughts occur with the onset of depression, and this is a very serious, nasty and insidious condition, please get help now if these thoughts do not go away.

    I have been there too Amit, I lost everything in my life that I loved inside 12 months, and I'm not ashamed to admit writing this is making me cry, it took me 2 years to get over it, depression is a very very bad thing and no life experience can prepare you for it.

    So stop feeling sorry for yourself and be prepared to face you parents and the consequences of your actions, explain you acted with the best motives, admit you were wrong, and offer to make amends by studying hard and getting good grades, this will then make them proud of you, if they are not already.

    Break up your studies with a few hours here and there working on your websites, don't forget these are ageing too (a good thing). work hard, stick at it, one day it will all come together.

    Now you take care lad and stay away from that cafe, unless you use it to study in!

    Hey man, I am 19 and my parents saved up all while I was growing up for me to go to University. Once they found out I didn't want to go to Uni and instead wanted to pursue a career in Marketing they were angry and I eventually had to move out. Things have quietened down a bit and we're all happy now. What I'm saying is DON'T GIVE UP. I suffered from depression when it happened to me, I never contemplated suicide but I know where you're coming from..

    It feels like the world is on your shoulders and there is nothing you can do. But man listen, it's always the darkest before dawn. Things will get better!!

    Just go to your parents, sit them down and explain what has happened. Throw in a bit of water works to show that you mean what you're saying and you're disappointed in yourself. Trust me, worse things have happened to people.

    Please don't do anything stupid because maybe we can JV in the future

    Don't do anything crazy here. Just admit your mistakes to your parents, and move on with your life.

    You made a mistake that any newbie could have made - every week newbies flood into this forum, seeking some "quick fix" IM advice that will magically make them rich in a very short period of time. Unfortunately, it just doesn't happen this way, and I think you're finding this out firsthand for yourself.

    Don't be selfish and think about doing the unthinkable - do you know how much grief you would cause your parents if you committed suicide?? This is the coward's way out of a tough situation. Rather than being selfish and just thinking about yourself, just face your parents and admit your mistakes. Whatever pain you cause them will only be temporary, unlike your proposed course of action.

    Learn from your mistakes, and move on. You can still succeed at IM, as long as you don't do anything crazy right now.

    Comon dude, you are 16, young, full of life, energy and potential - and you actually think about KILLING YOURSELF. I don't want to even START telling you how much money I've spent before I started making any buck online. Not just money - time, energy - I've wasted 2 years of my life just to make some, any money online.

    If I was you, I would confess to my parents, stand up punishments like a man (despite you are 16 you are more than capable to stand things like a full grown up person), get back to school, enjoy the BEST TIME OF YOUR LIFE (oh, what I would give to get back to those high school, junior days... the best time of my life, period!).

    Life is a collection of 99% of stupidity and 1% brilliance - you've made a mistake, learn from it, move on, remember it but don't make it define the rest of your life.

    Peace out

    They are your parents after all. go back and apologise. they WILL forgive you. if they did not they would not go thru 16 years of sweat trying to bring you up. I'm 16 too, and the only way is to do IM the cost-free way, earn some dough, and carry on from there. You should do everything with your parents consent, and be a obedient way.That, in itself,is the best gift for your parents.

    Lots of good advice in this thread for you. I have a feeling that deep down inside you already knew what you needed to do. Yeah it is going to suck but it is the right and best thing to do. Come clean with your parents and move on. You have many more years ahead of to make money online.

      Ok, your parents will probably be very upset, angry and disappointed in you - but if you were to kill yourself they would be absolutely devastated and would never ever get over it. Maybe you can talk to the college and see if you can get your place back and start from scratch?

      Well Amit,

      We all face some things in life we fear, somethings we dread and somethings we have no choice over. I just looked at your very nice blog, not done for money but to help people be friends.

      There's a story there under "An inspirational story", I recommend everyone here to read it and for you Amit to remember the beginning...

    Don't give up. Like many people here say, Internet marketing needs a lot of hard work. Don't have money, don't worry. You still have your hand, your foot, and your brain. How much is its value? More than $1 million I bet. So you already have something to start

    Hey man, I tell you something, I'm 16 too and my parents don't like me sitting in front of this computer learning bout IM. Agree with you I often go to cafes to relax myself.

    Okay, and my life is also bad. Very bad especially coz my parents used to control my life badly when I was younger, resulting me in becoming a bad2 boy. My dad tried to kill me once, but I still live. I ran out of the house once, but still surviving.

    Recently I bought an expensive phone. I claimed that I won a contest, in the end, I got busted. Got whacked badly lol. But still surviving. Who cares? They care still. Yes they do. Despite the fact that they take care of me, and I know they love me, sometimes I try to deny that they don't. But fact is they do. So just go confess yourself. Things will be a whole lot better

      Hi Amit, I can feel your sense of desperation. I was once like you. When I was your age, I hated school. I even quit high school for two years because I got tired of studying. During that time there was no Internet so business never cam into my mind. However, I soon realized the importance of education and I managed to graduate from high school and go to college.

      Even if your parents will know what you did, do you think they will kill you? Of course, not. Most parents are loving and forgiving, and I assume that your parents are like that. You just have to be honest with them and ask for forgiveness, and also admit your wrongdoings.

      Life is beautiful. I have a bad eyesight and I have lots of health problems, but I'm not losing hope. As long as I'm still breathing, I will still try to achieve my dreams in life. Don't lose hope.

        To OP: Hey man.. I know what you're going through. I am now 20 and did almost the same thing as you when I was 15.

        I saw my first "online-get-rich-quick" ad and got super hyped. The ebook cost $200 and it promised that I would break even with my investment within the first day of doing the system. I got excited and thought I would make my parents proud of me by surprising them with a paypal account full of cash at the end of the month. So, I skipped school for the next week without my parents' knowledge to shove show so I could make that $200 investment. Two weeks later, I learned the hard way that the ebook was PURE CRAP. I did NOT make any money. Then my report card came showing that I didn't take any of my exams.

        I told my parents what happened and they were furious, of course and they severely punished me for being so dumb. But, at the end of the day, they forgave me, got me a private tutor so I could catch up with my studies and we put this behind us.

        The point is, suicide is not the answer. It will work out best in everyone's favor if you just man up to admit to them what you did. The sooner the better. After they scream out their anger and punishment, I guarantee that they will help you get back on your feet.

    Dante,

    I know your still pissed because I told you off in the last thread, and you have to understand that I was trying to help you... This thread made me think back.

    I feel so bad now, if you were offended by a post I made, or felt that all warriors are down on you.. Sometimes we take things the wrong way, and make a comment that we don't think will be taken the way it is. It's a fault for me, and probably for other people.

    Back to me thinking back, I was thinking back about a guy named Corey, on July 1st 2010, Corey killed himself, because of comments made on an Internet Forum, and elswhere.... I believe a little while before that, he had contacted me, and I had told him to "buzz off" because he was selling illegal downloads.

    I still remember the guy all the time, he was never my friend, we hated eachother, and I thought he was crazy... Today, I really wish I could have helped him. A few people online explained to me, that it wasn't my fault that he was gone, that nothing online made him go, and that he had something personal going on.. I firmly believe that, I just wonder if someone online could have helped him on his way.

    Dude, your parents love you no matter what. go back to them, and if you need to get a job that pays almost nothing, do it. You can make it up to them.

    Just please don't kill yourself, as that would be YOUR life wasted. Your smarts, your opportunity to make a difference in the world. GONE.

    Sorry for the rambling, I hate it w hen people threaten suicide on a forum, I never want someone to die again, that I had the chance to post on a forum with -- and yeah that may sound "Stupid", that I posted on a forum with.. But, I feel that if you read something, IT CAN change your life.

      Have you learned learned nothing> You ignored expert advice - became angry when experienced marketers said your expectations weren't realistic.

      And you are still asking the same question.

      Worse, you are looking for ways to run away. You are worried about your parents anger but not about their disappointment. Instead, you would consider a permanent solution to a temporary problem and that solution would destroy your parents. They would be left feeling guilty and thinking they had done something wrong - how could you even consider doing that?

      How much money did you really spend? You didn't buy a domain or hosting - so where did the money go?

      When you admit your mistakes and take the consequences (parents anger) and learn from the experience you will feel the weight lift from your shoulders. You shouldn't wait 20 days for the parents to arrive - go home and and admit your failure.

      Time to stop the drama and face reality - and get on with your life. Parents will be angry but they'll get over it. You will be embarrassed but perhaps will begin to mature.

        He was unbalanced - no one knew him well enough to know just how unbalanced.

        People make their own choices. You can't save someone from himself and his own demons. You can't plant demons in the mind of healthy well adjusted person.

          I've spoken to Amit on Skype today.

          He's going to go back and face his parents and he's going to go back to the good opportunity he had at college, catch up on what he's missed and carry on.

          He's told me he's going to learn IM as a hobby.

          Right now he needs to figure out a way to earn some money to buy his college books and bike back.

          He's 16 and has made some mistakes but then, so do a lot of 16 year olds, I certainly did. For a 16 year old he has a nice little site in his signature (better incidentally than I could do a few years ago in my 30's) and has a good grasp of English which has plenty of time to improve.

          Amit, if you're reading this, well done for facing your demons which are ultimately coming from inside you.

            Glad we could get through to him and that he chose to act wisely. Don't know how much money he spent, but I'm sure it's not a fortune. The solution to his problem is real simple, yet right now it seems the end of the world to him. He can get back into school easily, get a job to pay his parents back and study IM on the side... If he follows your advice and checks the challenge.co out he should be up and running and making money soon.

            Yet, Amit, don't expect overnight riches. There is no such thing.
            Really Amit, do the www.challenge.co. It's perhaps the best training on IM and you don't need to spend a fortune to learn IM.

            He's told me he's going to learn IM as a hobby.

            Right now he needs to figure out a way to earn some money to buy his college books and bike back.

            He's 16 and has made some mistakes but then, so do a lot of 16 year olds, I certainly did. For a 16 year old he has a nice little site in his signature (better incidentally than I could do a few years ago in my 30's) and has a good grasp of English which has plenty of time to improve.

            Amit, if you're reading this, well done for facing your demons which are ultimately coming from inside you.

            You choose the path you take in life, you chose the path you're on.

        Quit living the lie right now. Tell them what happened and why you are doing it. It will suck to face the music but once you are done it will lift the weight of the lie off you and it will be easier to focus on making money.

        I didn't make anything for the first 6 months, and didn't make anything really great for about a year. Just stick it out and stop trying to make money. Instead try and help people and the money will come.

        By the way, how much money did you blow anyways?

    There is never a situation so desperate that you should despair of life. Here's a truth I believe in - all of our money is going to burn up someday, along with our houses, our cars, and even our computers. In other words "stuff" is temporary, but people are eternal. Your life is bigger than a single failure. It's bigger than an annual income.

    Decide to "fail forward" and learn from this. When you're 30, you'll be advising some 16 year old to hang in there with words like, "I messed up once, but I'm so glad I hung on."

    Dude, do you know how many times we've all seriously screwed up? Trust me, you're not the only one. The people in the forums are right - be a man, own up to what you did, tell your parents...get a job, pay them back, go back to school, etc. You may have hit rock bottom, but think how proud of you your parents will be when you graduate and start your own successful business because you didn't give up.

      As a 48 year old man with 3 grown kids I can tell you that you are taking things way to seriously. Your 16 and as much as you probably don't want to hear this, I'm going to say it anyway. You are going to encounter things in your life that will probably make your current situation look like a walk in the park. You have to learn to step back from things, take a deep breath and ask yourself; What's the best way to fix this problem that I have gotten myself into? I can assure you that the thoughts of killing yourself should never be one of the potential solutions. I have been a paramedic for 28 years and have seen many things that I really wish I could forget and kids or teens that hurt themselves is at the top of the list. Remember DEAD IS DEAD! It solves nothing and only would cause much greater harm to your parents than this little bump in the road that you are currently facing. You can never go wrong with the Honest Is The Best Policy approach. It has worked for me in the past and will work for you. Also you should really seek some help for the suicidal thoughts. There is nothing normal about that.

      Hey man, after being in IM for around a year and still struggling sometimes, I can say I hear where you're coming from.

      I'm sure my family thinks I'm nuts sometimes as well.

      My problem was, no matter how ambitious I was, I was still lazy and it ruined my attempts at success. I couldn't stand working more than an hour or two per day because it felt like a job, which was exactly what I was looking to escape with internet marketing.

      But the truth is, you don't just jump into passive income overnight. People make millions scamming others into believing it, but it just doesn't happen, not for you and probably not for anybody else on this forum.

      I finally committed to embracing my ambition not only in feeling but in action as well. I have been getting up earlier, working more and getting twice as much out of every day as I used to.

      Needless to say, I have been detraining my mind from laziness because that's what my biggest weakness is. That's what college does to you sometimes.

      Anyways, one of the best things I can recommend to you is here:

      http://www.simpleology.com

      We all talk big about internet marketing and success and mindset, but if you don't train your mind to think a certain way on a daily basis, it never will.

      Use this course to change your mental momentum and embrace the focus of your power and your potential as a human being. It has helped me a lot and I'm sure it will bring you more out of your own mind and body, which is the true fountain of your success.

      Hey amitdante,

      relax one moment.

      You need to take responsibilities for your actions.

      These are the type of moments that will determine what kind of man you will grow up into.

      Are you always going to run away from your problems? Or are you going to stand up and face them?

      It will be difficult, but it will help you to grow as a person.

      You are not a failure and this isn’t the end.


      In fact, I’d say that you are better off than a lot of your peers.

      I don’t know a lot 16 year olds who are trying to start their own business and make money.

      You are an entrepreneur and the one thing all entrepreneurs learn to deal with is failure.

      You can still make it in internet marketing. You can still make your parents proud.

      You’ve joined this forum only last month, so take some time learn what you’re lacking and how you can fix it.

      You will be fine. You will make it.

      I have complete confidence that you are destined to be a very successful person.


      All the best in your life,
      Devid

    How are your writing skills or design skills? Many Warriors offer jobs here. Maybe you could take a few article writing assignments or produce some articles on subjects you have knowledge of? There are always opportunities for folk who have writing or design skills. It's actually a common way for people to get their foot in the door on the way to building an actual online business. Experience helps as does building a list of happy customers who'll keep returning to you with more work.
    There's an idea for you.

    For those who asked about how much i spent here is the answer-
    My parents earn 309$ in a month and send me half of it for my room rent and my food(According to our country this much income is below average). Of the money i receive i give 99$ as my house rent and every day i have to spent 3$ on cafe , so in 1 month i spent 90$ on cafe so i have nothing to spent on food. There for i have to sell my books.

      So have you sold them or not?

      Have you sold the bike you were telling me about?

      You said you need the books and bike. How much will the books and bike cost you to get back if you have sold them as you told me you have?

      A few people I've spoke to in private said they may be prepared to help you or figure a way to help you. We can't have any fibbing though Amit. Life will never come on a plate, you've said to me your 16 and have never worked, I was cleaning all my neighbourhoods cars for silly money when I was 12. When I was in your country I saw kids as young as 8 on the streets working or trying to sell me things. I know for a fact people over your way often work from a very early age sacrificing their own education often through force or no fault of their own. I can't see how you can't figure out a way to buy some books?

      You have told me a few things that don't add up. This isn't a charity but there are a lot of good people giving you very good advice here.

      A lot of people trying to help you.

          Amit, this isn't a huge loss then. I'm sure your parents will understand that you made a mistake, but it's nothing really catastrophic.

          The lesson to be learned here is that you should never gamble money that you absolutely need on anything, no matter how appealing it may seem, and this obviously includes internet marketing.

          Learn from your lesson - if you want to spend time at the internet cafe, earn it yourself. Never take money that you absolutely need to live on (especially money for food!) and spend it on something else like this. I truly hope you've learned a valuable lesson here. No matter how badly you want something, it's just not worth literally starving yourself for it.

        Richard yes you are absolutly right. Here in India a lot of kids between 8 to 18 are doing odd jobs to earn a living. I am also working from the age 10 because I have to pay for my school fee, books etc. My father was not earning well and we were 5 brothers & sisters , so it was not possible for my parents to send all of us school but my mother knew the value of education so she encouraged us to do odd jobs to support our education and we all graduated , I have done Mechanical Engineering and now doing my own business successfully.

        As far as amit is concerned I think he is not ready to accept his fault and looking for some help from here. So many people giving him valuable advice and i think he can find his way from it.

        Amit you can PM me and tell me your exact need at this immediate time and I will see how can I help you. I am also from India. You can have a chat with me on skype my Id is : jetking.haldwani , I am online now.

        Richard, you're right. Something does not add up here, if his parents only give him half of their monthly salaries, I'm not sure how he ended up spending $190 this last month. There's something he's not telling us here, and I surely hope he didn't rack up any debt with anyone just to spend time at that internet cafe. I also wonder what he did for food over the last month, if he spent it all at the cafe.

          Don't worry Paul,

          He's young. I'm getting him to do me a small job to pay to get his books back. Job finished first, money later.

          I don't think he's out to con people I just think he needs to realise a few things in life. Quite a few things actually.

    here is my suggestion:

    1. Tell your parents about it and assure them that you are out of this money race
    2. Focus on your studies now. Don't think of making money.
    3. You have already spent money on 2 blogs. So you can continue writing once in a week or so. But if you have to got cafe to do so, then forget it.

    You will have lots of time to make money in future.

    Hi, you only learn for 2 months? You need to invest more time than that until you earn some cash. Just take one system that you want to earn some money, you need to be focus.

    Ok-there's two separate issues here. You need the money to eat at the cafe (is that what you mean?) and you are not having any results from online ventures.
    I wouldn't put more burden on your parents by asking a "refill" for money. It would just buy you some more time and then what? I would find an work offline with whatever abilities you have, use some of the money you earn to become a war room member and promote your offer - if it is a good one.
    IN YOUR FREE TIME concentrate on some other aspect of IM as long as you stick to one thing at a time, you enjoy doing it and you do it well. Nobody wants to listen to a teenager which is online only because he would like to become rich.
    And another thing. Results take time! Teenagers want results quickly and it is very easy to get disheartened and forget the whole thing.

    I have somehow the feeling that you need some more experienced IM marketer to point you out in the right direction. But they have to be able to find you and see your abilities.
