Well, why am I here?
I’m here to build an online business that would allow me to have more time to spend with family and travel, while also helping others in the same journey forward.
I came to know of the Internet Marketing world in 2004/05, and have ever since been wanting to start and run my own business. Initially I struggled with a lack of information, and the information that was available was very expensive and then there was the need to have technical skills.
When I finally got a job in 2006/07, I applied for a credit card and started working with Adwords. I made a few dollars in the first month, but then moved to Australia to start a new life. At that point all I knew was the method using Adwords, and since I couldn’t get a credit card, I’d abandoned the idea and went on to complete my masters degree. Around 2009/10 I realised that there were other ways to make money on the internet, but like every newbie, i went after the ‘Push Button Systems’. Am I proud of it, a big NO. But that was a part of my life, and it lead to a lot of hard lessons. Along the way I met my now wife, and got married in 2012. After this, I acutely felt the need for more time in my life, especially since my wife is a shift-worker. This motivated me even further to look for something that could help me. Along the way I found out about how to invest in property, but on further research found that it would be quite hard to get into it without a strong base (education, some money, and an understanding of business in general).
Around this time, I bought Robert Kiyosaki’s epic book, ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’. This was a huge turning point in my life. It made me see the world in a whole different light. It was inspiring, yet scary. I realised, with 100% conviction, that I didn’t want to be an ’employee for life’. I came across a fantastic program by a renowned Internet Marketer, and bought it. But once again, like with a lot of programs that I have collected over the years, it sat on my hard drive and wasn’t used. Finally towards the end of 2012, I said to myself, ‘Enough is Enough, Time for Taking Action’. In February 2013, I started into Affiliate Marketing and hired a full-time Virtual Assistant (with the help of this program), to help with all the background work that needed to be done (as I was struggling with lack of time). That has been progressing slowly but surely (still haven’t made money, but the traffic is starting to come and the list is being built). In March, I attended a seminar in Melbourne, by the renowned Internet Marketer, Derek Gehl. This again changed how I viewed Internet Marketing and how I could build businesses with the knowledge I already had. In late April, I finally took on Alex Jeffreys as a ‘virtual mentor’ after purchasing his updated ‘Marketing With Alex‘ Course,and thus begins this new journey, where I have direction, and know where I’m going. I can see the ‘end’ to a few ideas, but need to figure out the means to get there, and I know, this is where having a mentor is going to be invaluable.
Looking forward to the future, by God’s grace I’m here, and have found systems and people who would inspire me to fight on to the very end till I meet success.
And with that success I would like to help other newbie Internet Marketers become successful and have freedom to live life to the fullest.
