    Hi everyone,

    I know it is small-time compared to most of you, but I wanted to celebrate my first commission check from CJ that landed in my mailbox today.

    Woohoo! I'm rich! Well, not so much. I could probably take my wife out to a nice dinner, though :-)

    Congratulations - remember everyone started with a first check, so don't be discouraged - this is only the beginning.

    Congratulations on your first check.

    If you can reach the minimum, then what is stopping you from getting twice the minimum? Keep working and building, maybe you could hit 10 times the minimum. If 10 times, why not 50 times?

    Once you get that first check, it opens your eyes, and makes you realize that if you can earn $25 (or whatever amount you earned to get your first check) you could earn $100 or many times more than that.

    Just wait until your check is over $1,000 Then you can really start thinking about $5,000 or more

    When you hit over $10,000 in one month, then you start drooling

    All of this has to start somewhere, by earning your first check.

    Remember that everyone on here who earns good money started by earning their first check (or direct deposit)

    People seem to forget that those who earn over $10,000 every month (I am not there yet) had to start from the same level as those who only earn $10 per month

    Congrats J!!

    Wait until that day - and it will come - when about 8-10 of them arrive on the same day!!

    If it's a CJ check - use direct deposit! Mine is already at my bank today (although showing "Pending Deposit" - but it will be REAL money after 4pm tonight!)

    If you took any of my advice while on these boards, a token 90% tip is customary!!!!!!

    Then this day will be everyday, and you'll start complaining like all of us. Too much work to open all these letters, too much time lost to deposit them on your account.
    Congrats on your first one.

    PS: CJ rocks for payment, my account is already credited.

    Congrats Jason . Scan the check, frame it and hang it on the wall above your computer as a reminder that YOU CAN DO IT! Whenever I feel despondent and am just about to throw in the towel, I look at my first check on my wall (it was an LS check) and it gives me that extra OOMPH to get cracking and work harder at it. Although I've had many checks since then, there are still days when sales are bad and I tend to get depressed. However, I know this can work and am not about to give up quite yet.

    To be honest, I don't remember the date of my first check, or the merchant, or even the amount.

    But I DO remember the day I became "jaded"...

    It's the date mentioned at the bottom of all my posts - after the word "Registered"!! LOL
