In order to achieve any level of success, you need to have a starting point. This starting point is having a "goal".

Success is not all about money and it shouldn't be your only motivation, but for many of us, the money part does matter a little bit (or a lot). :) And because of this, I want you to take a few minutes and really come up with some tangible "money" goals.

Please make sure you answer ALL 3 of these goals within this post and feel free to elaborate on these answers within your comment below.

QUESTION #1: How much money per month would you be happy earning?

QUESTION #2: How much money per month would you be REALLY excited earning?

QUESTION #3: How much TIME are you willing to invest to achieve these goals?

Notice the last question? That is there for a reason. Most of us are in such a rush to become rich that we end up like the hare, instead of the turtle. Please refrain from saying you want to be successful within a week or a month, because if you do this, I can honestly say you are setting yourself up for failure from the get go.

Be realistic, but at the same time shoot for the stars. If you come up short from BIG goals, you have still reached greatness.

I look forward to hearing everyones feedback and please do take time to immerse yourself within the goals and conversations within this thread.

To your success!

How much money per month would you be happy earning?
On top of my monthly paycheck at work, I would be content as a newbie making an additional $1500 a month which is equivalent to picking up a second job at just above min wage which is what I am facing soon enough.

How much money per month would allow you to live the ideal lifestyle?
Ideal in my eyes just doesn’t exist, but I am willing to admit I am a little jaded. I am going to say $5000.

How many hours per week are you willing to invest to achieve these goals?
I love my job, so I think I would stay working no matter what, so I don’t have an open schedule. I am willing to put in 25-30 hrs a week to help myself learn how to make this as successful as possible!

Success is very cumulative in nature. Every action you take will add up to a much greater success. I can tell you that when you earn your first money, it will all become very REAL and it will lead to much more success.

Personally it took me a couple of months to get there (to earn my first dime), but by month 6 I was earning a consistent income. That is likely what your journey will look like...stay persistent and ask for help when you need it. I am in your "corner" every step of the way William! :)
