Thank you for visiting this post to learn more about me.
If you are anything like me, you are skeptical about making money online. When I first started my venture into online marketing and affiliate marketing, I was concerned about getting scammed.
If you are like me, then I say great! I wouldn’t want you to be any other way. Always be cautious online.
For the most part, making money online is not very difficult. The problem is you can find yourself making purchases that really don’t teach you anything. We quickly learn that some of these online “deals” only make the people selling them rich, not the ones buying them. It gets very frustrating!
I’ve been there. Many times! The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results. The truth is I must be a little crazy. I spent so much time looking for the easy dollar, that I jumped on anything that looked good. I went about the whole thing wrong. I made the same mistakes, over and over and over. Finally, I just got tired and quit.
After I got tired of just spending money for stupid online ideas that didn’t work, I finally gave up. I focused on my job and apply more continuing studies. Things were going great at work. Working for online marketing company in Canada was very good during the years before recession. I wasn’t worried about money.
As a matter of fact, things were so good that my wife decided that it was time for her to leave her job and to go into business herself. She started her freelancer business. I still focus on my job. We really thought things were going great. We had money, we had a business, we had savings and we had a dream. Then the bottom dropped out. Yes, the recession hit us pretty hard. Like many people, we ran in to a brick wall with my job and our business. Things changed quickly. Bonuses disappeared at work, salary cut. Our business suffered because businesses cut back their marketing. In all, things couldn’t seem worse.
That’s when it all hit me. I don’t want to be one of those people who can sit around waiting for a corporation to feed me enough money to keep me employed but not enough to really live my life. I can’t be one of those people who work 10 years with the same company but can’t retire because they won’t be able to live on what they have in savings. There had to be something more. There has to be another way!
June of 2014, I had surgery that turned out to be more complicated than I expected. What I thought would be a week off work turned out to be four. It was during this time that I made a decision; I’m not going to wait around any longer for an opportunity to find me, IT’S TIME TO DO SOMETHING FOR MYSELF!!
While I was laid up, I started reading everything I could get my hands on. I started at 7:00 AM in the morning and ready until 11:00 PM every night. I was trying to find every bit of information I could find about online marketing and affiliate sales. I have to tell you, I found a lot of junk! I started getting on every email list I could find. I download gigs and gigs of free programs, e-books, pdf files, and software. I read every web site that I could find and researched every online guru that I found.
Out of all this, something wonderful happened…I WAS LEARNING! I learned tactics, ideas, how-to’s and more. I read morning, noon, and night for three weeks solid, then the last week I was off work, I started applying what I learned.
Now, this is the part where most of you are expecting me to say, “I struck it Rich!”. I’m not going to tell you that. The truth is I have made some money with online marketing. Not enough to set me free from the bondage of a job, but enough to give me hope that there is a better way.
Now it’s up to you. I’ve told you my story, what’s yours? I made a decision while I was out of work that I am going to find a better way. I made a decision that I am not going to wait around and let opportunity find me, I am going to look for it. I am not going to work for someone else for the rest of my life. I am going to take charge of my future!
I hope that you find the inspiration that I did whether it is something I promote here on this site or some other great idea that you find on your own. Just do something. Life is too short to just let it slip by. You deserve more! You owe it to yourself!
Good luck, & Best Wishes,
