Need to get $50k within 60 days

It's been awhile since I last visit this forum. I need some help from fellow warriors.

I have to pay $50k within 60 days as I breech my scholarship contract. If I don't come out with the money, I will be face law enforcement and may be pronounced brankrupt. I don't want this and I really cannot proceed with the contract due to major stress.

What I need from fellow warriors is that give me some ideas which is offline that I can make at least $50k within 60 days. Is that possible? I really need this.

    #1) If you're a beginner, this is unrealistic. This comes down to $25,000 / month. If you can make it happen, be prepared to sleep very little and work your ass off.

    #2) There was a thread somewhere on WF about "what to do if desperate" or something along the lines of making money quick in desperate times. I, for the life of me can't seem to find the popular thread but maybe somebody who reads this can. I doubt there will be any solution to make $50,000 on it though.

    #3) If you're going after potential clients/customers, PLEASE do not come off as desperate - even if you are. Have the will to succeed, the drive, the passion, and the NEED, but cut off the desperation when talking to potential clients if at all possible.

    #4) Personally, I suggest talking to a professional and seeking out alternative options. You may be setting yourself up for failure if you're thinking of relying on opening up a new online business and hoping for it to bring you that amount of money if you're a beginner. Do not put all of your eggs in one basket, you'll regret it.

    Best of luck,
    Jon

    You might want to read this thread:

    Nathan was in a tight place, but it still took him some time to get where he is today.

    I think if you can't continue your scholarship due to stress, you are heading down a rough road. You are looking at 100 hour weeks minimum to build this sort of income, and the odds are stacked against you doing it in 60 days. It's not impossible, but it would probably be easier to continue with your scholarship at this stage than embark on this journey.

    Best of luck with whatever you do.

    No way you can earn $50k in 60 days starting from scratch.

    Well, there IS a way...but I think you'd have to have the plan in place already...and you're going to have to TALK to people.

    I don't think you are asking the right question as it is doubtful if making the 50K or whatever will solve anything but what you perceive to be the problem. And this is certainly not the right place to deal with such issues.

    That aside, you have said nothing about your abilities, network, work ethic, or anything else you already have in place. How can you ask for specific help by giving only general statements?

    Your best bet would be to get help from the people you owe the money to.

      Jason's right here. Take 2 days to consume as much information as possible. Build a plan. Start finding a market. Your best bet might just be cold calling here. If you're already in a hole, no sense spending more and more to hopefully get out of it. Cold calling is free if you've got a phone. Do some research and be prepared to work harder than you ever have before. If you can't commit to doing so, you won't be successful with this goal of yours.

      All the best.

        Not going to happen, get real.

        What you need is whatever your equivalent of a Citizens Advice Bureau is.

        If I was a company and had given you $50k to go to University I wouldn't expect you to reimburse me that money back in 60 days.

        For starters it would not have gone into your bank account would it.

        Have you actually talked to the Graduate Recruitment at the sponsoring company? They will still give you a job you know, just not on Fast Track.

        $50k? Where is that figure coming from anyway. Where do you live that it would cost that to go to Uni?

    Find an excellent web designer in the $500 range. Pick up the phone and cold call trying to sell the sites. Get up and walk into business and try to sell the website design services for $1,000 and above. It will suck, and you will get doors slammed in your face, but if you knock on enough doors and call enough folks on the phone you will make the money. This is a desperation move but it will work. It's just a numbers game.

      Honestly, you should just find an alternative. Short of robbing a bank, making that kind of money in that time-frame from a new business is just insane.

      Top it off with school work and sleep? Damn near superman level.

      I'm not too sure this thread is real to begin with, but if it is, I suggest you follow jimbo's advice because that scholarship's terms don't seem right.

    Hi Quantar its not impossible but at the same time it aint easy

    Lets dissect 1st

    50k in 60 days is 25k a month

    Scenarios
    So that means if you can acquire 25 clients paying you 1k as a set up or recurring then your ok.

    If you can acquire 25 clients paying you 500 then you are still ok as you can get extensions etc.

    Again I say its possible but it aint easy.


    In my experience most of the time its better to aim for acquiring 100 clients and if you fall short it may be still progress but slow progress is still progress.


    Now lets dissect getting 100 clients

    That's 4 new clients each day:
    This is not impossible but it is very hard and depends on your abilities some people are great at cold calling and over the phone battle of the wits other people are better at face to face.

    For me I'd say the latter if you go with this then you have to look at all possible business referral networking groups in your area and beyond.

    Then when you have identified these groups try and also laser target the ones who seem like they need help with marketing or networking events about marketing.

    Its not a silver bullet but I can promise you that there's a process for everything you just have to know your abilities and dissect the obstacle logically and put in the hard work be it getting to the events or getting over the phone.

    Then again I don't know what you do be it seo, web design, graphic design etc whatever it is make sure you are the picasso of that art or you have someone you will ousource to who is.

    Other options
    Look to find credit helping agencies : there some who actually take your bad debts or credit away within 40days but you have to meet certain criteria.

    Mediation between both parties i.e. you and your sponsor for a payment plan which extends 60days to say 180days.

    Then again I don't know how you breached your sponsorship so everything I have said may or may not help.

    This also can help you :

    Looks like it's time to man up and deal with the stress. You can't run from everything that stresses you out in life. I can assure you, that trying to make 50k in 2 months will be a hell of a lot more stressful than your schooling. It's not going to happen. You need to seek another alternative. There is a difference in goal setting, and being logical. This is just absurd. Find a way to fix the problem..

      No kidding...

      Just managing projects that 50K brings in, is tough.

      A guy with NO experience, that is stressed out because of school is not going to be able to handle REAL stress of running a business.

      EVEN IF he did manage to get that much in sales, he isn't GROSSING 50K... and he for sure won't be able to complete it all himself.

      REALISTICALLY... he's going to need to gross 100K in sales, and hope to NET 50K. His margins may even be better than that, but that's the reality of how this goes. It's not pure profit...

      For this to even be possible, he will definitely need the sales, but WHERE is he going to go that will allow him to process that amount immediately? Nowhere... If he has credit problems as it is, he isn't even going to be able to get a 10K ceiling merchant account.

        Exactly. Once you've made x amount of appointments and closed x amounts of deals, then the real fun begins, fulfilling all your promises and meeting all those deadlines. Better be prepared for some late nights.

      I wholeheartedly agree. When I look back at it, school was the most stress free time of my life. I'm not sure you are ready to handle the stress of running a business if school is stressing you out.

      Remember the amount of money you are looking at making in two months is what is considered a good salary for a whole year! So 50k in two months maybe possible but it would need a crazy amount of commitment and work.

      Crazy amount of work = a crazy amount of stress.

      My advice: If at all possible don't drop out of whatever agreement you have with your school.

    Its ironic that I happened to be up at 2 am, at my forum typing my goals in the pro 90 section...to share them with the people there...

    I wrote exactly that I'd had a 30 day head start on my 90 day goals and that my intention and initial benchmark for Vicom was to create 50k in its first 60 days...

    Here's where it gets funny- 5 minutes later I log into the warrior forum, and suddenly some unknown person is in here asking if its realistic to make 50k in 60 days...

    Ironic to say the least, but stranger things have happened.

    In any event,

    Can I offer some realistic thinking here?

    A: As a 20 year old, I set 8 appointments per day.

    B: As a 36 year old, I had a telemarketing room and each of my telemarketers who mostly came in off the street with little or no no experience, set 1 appointment per hour as quota.

    Half of them couldnt even tone down the "ghetto" vocab on the phone, let alone were professionals...but they dialed and hit minimum quota anyway.

    C: As a 40 year old on the Warrior forum, I moved to a new town and started over, was in between projects, running out of money...and I locked myself in a room for 6 hours and wrote 5 appointments and closed 3-4 of them that same week...

    People asked me to write about it, and that became the telemarketing war report.

    Now, let me ask:

    If I can write 8 appointments in a day, can you write 8 appointments in a WEEK?

    While you answer that question for yourself I will ask another...

    Is it realistic to think you can close 2 out of 5 appointments that you set for yourself?

    In other words, you know they are good because you set them yourself...

    If the answer is yes then I will ask another question...

    In 60 days that means you set 64 appointments at only a rate of two appointments per day...

    5 goes into 64 12 times.

    If you close 2 out of 5 appointments...which is ultra realistic and wrote 2 appointments per day which is even more ultra realistic... then how many sales have you have you made in 60 days?

    A MINIMUM of 24 sales.

    So lets say you sell your web marketing package for $1997.00 on the front end.

    You now have made $48,000 and whatever you are charging on the backend will probably make up the extra two grand...

    So lets break it down real simple and talk about whats "Possible"...

    In order to hit that goal of 50k you would only have to set an average of two appointments per day and run them, and you would have to close about 3 sales per week.

    Is that impossible?

    Again: If I can write 8 appointments per day, is it possible for you to write TWO per day....?

    If average street people with no experience, who don't claim the business acumen or intelligence that most here do, can write 5-8 appointments per day, can you write two?

    If the answer is no, then you are far from being anywhere near ready to be in business for yourself.

    There is a difference between what is possible for EVERYONE and what is realistic for an individual depending on the standards they hold themselves to.

    Starting from scratch?

    Well, when I wrote that five appointments at age 40 after not having been on the phone in a couple of years...I didn't even have a website, and when I show up at the appointments, I didn't have a receipt book, nor any local references, nor anything but a note book, and I winged it.

    Im not saying that is a special talent because I wasn't even at my BEST- I would expect from hiring many telemarketers that this is WELL within the reach of an average person.

    The real question is not one of whats "possible".

    Here is the question:

    "WILL" you?

    Or will I?

    Its not impossible and its not about possibility because I have just shown you that its realistic...its about whether we WILL or not.

    Here's why you see people like me ken and David Miller, Jason telling people things that seem harsh...because as boiler room telemarketers we all KNOW people right this very minute who are currently writing 8 appointments per day consistently and we have done it ourselves... and most of the people we kno0w in telemarketing rooms who eat 2 appointments for breakfast everyday, dont claim to be any where near as smart and business savvy as most of the people asking questions like this and crying for weeks that its too hard.

    Sorry.

    Now given the beginning of this post, if I sounded a little harsher its because I dont think its a real question, I think its a bs post period, but thats just my opinion- judge for yourself.

    I will only answer the second to last sentence. "Is that possible"?

    Well it depends solely on who you are. There are many on this thread, who are saying it is not possible. I will say this. They are correct "in that" it is not possible for most of them or anyone who feels it is impossible to do such a thing.

    Is it possible for you? Again it depends on who you are. If you are like 98% of people No, it is not possible for you either.

    Is it possible for someone to start something they have never done before and make $50 in 60 days. Most will say, that is not possible either. However, that is why I do what I do.

    To quote part of something I had written before, "Impossible has no strength or resolve in itself, therefore i must break it down to extract and exert actual power in the knowing of I'm possible"

    The question is, are your ways of value enough to sustain the alone without regret.

    So is it possible? Let me explain that it indeed is.

    Little over three years ago I started the business I am doing now. I watched another man do it for a whole 2.5 days out of the 5.5 weeks that preceded my first go at my new adventure.

    In those 5.5 weeks I generated a little over $37,000 and never had done the business before. Now admittedly I already posses certain skill sets.

    So I assume if I created $37k in 5.5 weeks, doing it my first time, then one could generate another $15k in another 2.5 weeks totaling $50k in 8 weeks or 60 days.

    Thus, is it possible? I would have to say yes. Can it be done yes; can 98% of people do it? No they cannot.

    Can you do it? As a man who loves to make the Impossible to I'm possible, I want to say yes. IF you have the ability yes.

      I love your quote... "Impossible has no strength or resolve in itself, therefore i must break it down to extract and exert actual power in the knowing of I'm possible"

      I totally agree... No one can ultimately tell you whats possible for you... only you... but you must believe and know why you are in doubt if you are...

    We all make mistakes and although I commend you for wanting to find a quick answer for this one, the truth of the matter is that there is rarely a quick answer when it comes to needing money. It takes time. Try to work something out where you can make payments and the next thing you have to do is get to work. A real job that pays real money and overall with real expectations. Don't fall for all this hype or you will just continue to make the same money mistakes in life over and over again. So be glad this is happening, it's a challenge you have to overcome, and be glad you are meeting it now so you can really learn from it.

    You'll find a way to survive... we all do. Best of luck.

    i'm sorry to tell you this but there's no way one can make 50K in 60 days with no experience, no network to leverage off and no expertise. If there was, i would have already done it

      If you have never done it, then you are only qualified to teach us how its NOT done.

      I dont think you would need much "initial" investment , if any....however I think a percentage of cost would come out of the gross revenue you generate- depending on what you are doing. If its a brokering liquidation deal overseas on Alibaba, it wont cost you a single penny other than internet access.

      I have done it with alibaba, and with no investment, and believe it or not with no experience, and only a little advice that I "sought out"- so you could say I started without even that advice and gaining it was part of the "starting from scratch" process.

      Now at that time everyone in my life including myself knew it was a shot in the dark to try and make big deals on a website like alibaba, it looked like I only had a chance in a million to pull it off, but I took the shot, and I pulled it off.

      What kind of shots are you willing to take?

      People flip houses in sixty days, create broker relationships and million dollar deals.... some deals are worth $500k in one shot...

      So to say its not possible is ignorant. It may be a shot in the dark but the winners take those shots that nobody else takes.

      So again I say, that if all the experience you have to draw from on a subject is "failure" , then you are only qualified to say how its "Not Done", you cant say how it IS done.

      Consider the sources of the advice you receive. Some can only teach you how to achieve failure on a given subject.

        Thank you John, I thought all hope in humanity is lost LOL and then I come across you. Not despising anyone else, everybody is entitled to his own opinion and at the end of the day they are all valid - at least for yourself but John's post is more of my cup of tea.

        I don't know if the OP is real or BS, but I honestly don't care because I have been in that same situation where it was "money or get my leg broken", there are situations in life where I don't want to judge others.

        I wanted to post this to support what John's just said. Where in the OP does he say that he wants to make 50K with mobile websites or internet marketing or websites or ....(whatever). He just needs 50K. PERIOD.

        Hell, he could get that in ONE SHOT. 1 customer > ONE SALE = 50.000 US$.

        Possible? I've been in that exact, same situation. It was a "do or die" situation. I didn't have a job, or any income. No savings. Only debt. Real bad debt, with real bad people. I looked for things that could bring me big payments in one shot. I found a company that installs SOLAR PANELS. Called them up and mentioned that I had 2-3 big customers that are interested (FAKE IT TIL YOU MAKE IT), we agreed on a commission per sale/volume.

        Next. Took Google Maps. Satellite View. Looked over Industrial parks/areas with companies that have big, unused roofs, warehouses, etc. UNUSED SPACE. Looked up who they are (name, phone number). Cold called them, telling them that they are loosing money and that they could profit from the ugly, naked, empty roof of their warehouse (I even arranged with the Solar guys that they could provide the Full installation on credit - they had a pretty good bank that would finance the whole thing - same commission for me). I mentioned: "Oh did I tell you that you could get this with no investment on your side in terms of cash disbursement, you can pay it back over the electricity bill" Save on Energy, become more "green" (good for PR/Media attention) and use that empty space.

        3 cold calls in one week. 1 appointment the very next week. Went there with the Solar company (I have no clue about any of this stuff) and closed the deal in the very same week. Talked to one of the Sales guys of the Solar company offering him the following deal:

        Look, I just closed a sale, worth 20.000 € in commissions (around 24-25K US$). I need that money pretty much, yesterday. I will give you the full rights over the commissions, if you give me 18.000 € NOW. H would make 10% on his money. He works for the company that just made the sale (so he knows this is no BS) and he also could claim this money to his Boss. I'm out of the deal and have instant, real cash of 18K €!

        I made two other deals like this one in the following week. One went down the drain (they didn't had the technical infrastructure to do it) the other one took a bit longer, but closed contract within a month.

        I have no idea about solar installations, never did anything with this, don't understand engineering, never talked to this people before, had no up-down-front payments on any of those deals, had no cash. Just had to do a good Google search, call 2-3 Solar companies, send 4-6 emails to potential customers and cold called all of them. No relationships, no network, no money, no credit card, not even a website or a Autoresponder or a list.

        Investment on my side: a couple of calls, a couple of emails, and 1 weeks time (oh and Internet connection). Result: 18.000 € cash, and the second deal went down for 10.000 € cash in the following month. PLUS: being SUPER relieved

        YOU can do it. John did it. I did it. Others did it. We are all dumb and still did it. With a big dumb shot in the dark.

        My contribution. Your turn.

    As a starter on the internet, i don't see it happening.

    A miracle, because he can't handle the stress of schooling?

    50K/mo is definitely doable... but not for him. He probably can't even handle the stress of this thread. How can he handle the stress of working HARDER than he ever has before, to even attempt to make that when he can't handle a couple classes that he had a scholarship for?

    $50k in 60 days, is a great plan, but not easy.. honestly i dont think it is impossible but it depends what you have in the way of tools to use to get their, because sure you can make 25k per month, but this kind of income can take a lot more time to build up to.

    Let's say you went balls to the wall and were able to sell some $500 product (that you could outsource and advertise to get the customer for $100), let's say a mobile site. If you were able to close 2 per day, you'd net $800 a day. $800 x 60 = $48,000. If you had these 120 new mobile site clients, and have a pulse, you'd surely be able to upsell a few of them some service or product to get to $50,000.

    In reality, I suggest calling the creditor and explaining your situation, and try to work out a payment program.

    Best of luck man. This too shall pass.

    Awesome, inspiring post Gordon Gecko, thanks!

    My brother Michael ran an appointment for our Vicom project yesterday that didnt sell.... He also does car sales training ....

    Knowing he needed a close, he walked out of that appointment and into a dealership on his way back and pitched them, and got a four hour training gig, and closed the sale and brought me back a check for $1497 which is exactly what we charge for our web package.

    This was YESTERDAY.

    When you want it, you just make it happen. Some do , and some dont. Its up to us which we will be.

    Ps. Ironically, he was all proud driving back to show me that he made it happen anyway....and someone hit his car, and he had to stop by an autobody shop and spend 600.00 lol- So it killed his joy a little, but he still get er done!

      Yeah I figured out pretty quick that it was an @ symbol, not a copyright symbol. You know... "half" brothers/sisters does sound kinda crazy. Never thought of that... like you can split blood in halves...

    Some warriors post here how they reached a certain goal (in terms of customers, list numbers or $ amounts) but I think it is about the overall mindset, the spirit that moved them to reach such a goal and specially it's not "methods" or copying specific "strategies" that will make you money, but about a specific mindset - you could go ahead and try to copy my exact approach and maybe you wouldn't get the same results money wise, but the point here is you should copy the attitude and spirit that a warrior showed.

    The core of what I did is: DEAL DEAL DEAL and than DEAL some more (notice how I exchanged one business deal for another! In my particular situation it would be not good to close a business and get the commission money 6 months down the road. I needed that money NOW.
