In this site, I want to communicate my journey to succeed in earning a living on the Internet by being my own boss. I am just starting from zero. I have no job, not even offers, no income, and an almost not-existent net worth. I am also 40+ years old, not a native English speaker and I live in a so-called third world region. To be honest I am in a very difficult situation right now. I quitted my job to open a restaurant -dumb move, I know- lost almost everything, my house was foreclosed and my fiance left me. Now, not everything is bad. I feel healthy and optimist, I have a STEM background and although I don’t hold a CS degree I am a self-taught programmer who loves making web applications. I am also debt-free. This site is half an open journal to have accountability with myself and half a vehicle to obtain ideas and meet people to develop mutual-beneficial relationships.
Let me tell you about what are my plans right now. Besides opening this website as an open forum for ideas and general discussion I am also creating a website to highlight my portfolio. This will have a double purpose, increase my chance for a remote job and try the affiliate advertising route. A job would be fantastic, but a short-term solution. My short-term target is to earn at least $1 USD within the first 3 months of 2020. My goal for the rest of the year is to duplicate that amount each month and my goal long term is to earn 20K USD/month. A goal ambitious enough but not too deluded or ridiculously greedy. I need to make up for all my wasted time and money.
I am planning to blog here, whatever happens, for at least a year. I hope some of you can join me on my travel.
