Since 2009 I have been trying to earn a living through the virtual means of my computer.
The purpose was and continues to be for the sole purpose of not having to go to a J · O · B.
I like to travel and generally do what I feel like doing when I feel like doing it.
People say I am spoiled -or-
Secretly they envy me.
I know this because they say so 🙂

I decided to write out the chronicles of the past few years and continue the iteration into the present day – because in part – it hasn’t been a simple go of it. As a matter-of-fact the first week my first money-generating blog went live, was the week of the BIG Google slap heard around the world.
I had officially missed the huge money making opportunities that so many others had been able to ride.
It was like seeing your lottery numbers come up on the TV and then realizing you forgot to buy a ticket!
That was truly disheartening.
In one week – a brand new blog that came out the gate with several hundred visitors and a few sales (I couldn’t believe how easy it was) – went to a deathly stand still.
It didn’t help that I was trying to make a living in a much despised niche – the Weight Loss Niche. It didn’t matter to the Google that I was a Personal Trainer and a Nutritionist. I was painted with the same dirty brush.
As it turned out too, some people had stolen my original content and were able to get themselves ranked while I got slapped with a “duplicate content” penalty.
Of course I have several of these stories – simply because I kept at it.
Now here I am.
Making a living off my laptop and managing to avoid the snow.
One thing that really helped was finding a great mentor. Someone willing to coach me personally. I will

The rest of the story (anyone else remember Paul Harvey?):
I didn’t begin Blogging for Money until 2009.
I did write my first website in 2007. The second website I wrote was in 2009 and it’s purpose was to highlight my home that I had for sale. It worked, the house sold in 21 days. What is so cool about this is the fact that I had it listed for sale at three times the price I paid for it, which was DOUBLE the price the local Realtor said I could get. AND houses would usually sit on the market, on average, for 2.5 years.
I wasn’t going to have any of that!
21 Days – SOLD!
Which in part PROVES that I know a thing or two about Local Business Marketing. There is also the fact that we owned an electrical company. My marketing methods, along with my partner’s work ethic, enabled us to charge over double the going rate of the other electricians.
Within four months of putting out our “electrician for hire” shingle, we were making over $70,000 in sales. I was then being sought after to do Local Business Marketing for other businesses.
Even with all that, I still had ignored all the rumblings about people making money online. I thought it was all just hoopla. Sure I figured one or two were doing it but didn’t really believe it.
Until one day.
I started the search to find the truth about online marketing and affiliate marketing. It all starts here.
