    it first started 2-3 years ago before hurricane katrina

    i would buy maple story (mmorpg) mesos (currency) from one site and resale it on ebay for a higher price. kinda like drop shipping except a little more work

    i did that and for a 12 year old, i made $4000 in 3 months
    then hurricane katrina came and pawned my house so i didnt have time or a computer o_o to sell

    i went to live with my ocusins and continued there making around 400-600 sending to my parents to fix our house (more like rebuild one from scratch x_x)

    then it got kinda slow from there

    then september 1st, i opened a forums for a school help site that helps kids from school with AP homework help

    made $12 in 1 month with around 800 posts.

    last week i bought www.quickadder.com which is a myspace friend adder from a friend, i then had it redesigned and had the design on, and thats making about $100 a month

    then monday, i started my proxy network, i am at 3 and thats been making $5 a day! o_o !

    currently age 16

    I made my first 1k playing a game called lineage. It is basically an mmorpg and I found out that I could make about 10$/hour farming gold. I found out that I could make money from this when I went to sell 100million gold on ebay and auction ended up closing at a little over 1,000$!! That was a lot of money for a kid who was 12 years old at the time! lol. I later went on to make almost 10,000$ USD in 12 months. However, soon after the Chinese found that they could use slave labor to farm gold and shorly after gold prices plummeted to nearly 1$/hour for me. I gave up after that and now I spend more time developing mmorpg websites.

    I started with selling my product DiskAnalyzer Pro from iconico.com. Now I own and run craveworldwide.com where I promote my own and other products.

    You can either sell other people products or start working as a freelancer if you know programming and web designing.

    I started out selling a couple of frozen chickens to local web communities...it grew to 20 frozen chickens a week. I got a bigger freezer to cope with the extra load. All of sudden, the success came and was selling 20 frozen chickens a day. This continued for a month. Sales increased again and had to get another freezer alongside the bigger freezer. Now started offering a frozen chicken discount for bulk orders. I was fast becoming "Frozen Chicken Man" or well known as the FCM. Sales increased again to 800 FC's a day. Large corporations were making takeover bids because they could see major profits were to come in the frozen chicken selling industry. I decided to hold off. Thinking about the even bigger profits. I forgot about the capacity of the two overloaded freezers and ordered 30,000 frozen chickens....they all thawed out and completely ruined the business.....hmmmm

    Ughhhh. It's been a very hard up hill battle for me. I've tried so many things. Just can't a way to make any money at all through affiliate marketing. I truly believe you can make money do ing as well. Just haven't figured out a way to make not even one simple sale. I'm searching and researching around and found this blog and it's helped some. There are things I haven't yet tried so I will. The only thing I haven't really tried out the the fullest yet is paid advertisements. Is that a good route to go when you are starting out?

    I started making money by providing my Graphic Design Services to people. I started a Facebook Page and slowly built up my likes. There's now about 7k likes. I made my fist £100 this way! :)

    I did plenty of research first. And dabbling with things here and there. Once I found something I knew I could focus on and knew I had a passion for then I double down on it and built my website or book around that passion and growing it to later monetize it and start making an income. Now, i'm not making a killing yet but I broke the ice between o and $ signs. lol It took time but I finally found an area where I could display or sell my talent for a profit.

    I made my first money online in Diablo III computer game. Sold virtual armor for $3. Then several virtual weapons for $10+ and after several months of doing this I realized: "If people are willing to buy virtual stuff for real money, then internet is the key." ^^
