    Exclamation 1st sale... What a great feelling!
    So I made my first sale today. I've been reading this forum for over 8 months. I was so motivated by the idea of making money online that I decided to try it out. So, for 4 months I've been building and rebuilding and rebuilding a few sites with a few different ideas, constantly losing motivation and then getting re-inspired and then losing motivation again. In fact, just two nights ago I was mopping around the house because I was no longer excited about the direction I was going.

    Then, just last night, I mustered up the nerve and confidence to change the layout and just go for it. Then I invested a small bit in advertising to see how people responded. And today I will finish with the first ever positive ROI on a site that I built and marketed.

    Today, I profited by first $1 (literally... lol)

    If you've got 1 you've got 1000, for all the increase in competition the Internet's still embryonic and if you simply persevere day by day you'll simply never stop both learning and earning. Good luck!

    cheers,

    I've been able to shake many addictions, save for the addiction to selling on the internet. Leave while you still can!
