Very solid will help your game with snowie and Equilab (you can run your equity in spots here its a great program)
Theres alot of great sites like popping up, stay on the easier ones. ie. playing on Americas Card Room would be stupid when theres sites like sportsbook poker bovada intertops etc
set time limits for each session.
find how many tables you are comfortable with and stick with it.
Moving up limits faster is aggressive and can be done, but mostly only more experienced players can pull this off.
Reason is, the more experienced you are, you know what to expect at each limit and it doesn't hinder your winrate much.
Take your time,
Have fun and enjoy the great game of poker.
Dedicate yourself to (1) form of poker only.
Other forms are for recreation, you may win sometimes, but stick to your (1) form (income) almost always.
Hope this helps.
BR manage well, study on your spare time (youtube vids on phone is great for starting players) - watch people like doug polks streams, andrew neeme in las vegas so you can understand the job better, mingthemerciless @twitch so you can see the standard daily grind, Tonkaa is the best tournament player to watch. Couple others close to him.
GL on your poker Journey,
Its a business first, a game 2nd.
Be at your best, you know your opponents will be.
