I remember the first time..

Hey all, today I just wanted to tell part of my story.  I remember the first time I was able to pay a whole bill with the money I made from internet marketing.

It all started in late 2004, I was on a seasonal lay off from my job for a few months and decided to learn something new. I came across a forum, and in that forum they were very, very helpful and that led to another forum (owned by same people) that was specifically for teaching. I joined that forum and the learning started.  There were plenty of times when it was slow, and I didn’t see money right away by any means.  I did believe in myself and the possibility that I could make money online!  I think that is a KEY part of the journey.  Fast forward a few months, I have learned some and have acquired some domain names and built some websites. I was getting traffic, using the principles I was taught and was very happy just to see my stats go up. There were times that I got down when I didn’t see sales in the back office of a program. Some of those times made me wander and look at other possibilities some time.

Then I saw it !!!   The first sale, the excitement was like Christmas morning when I was little!  It was so energizing. Keep in mind it was only a sale, I still had a little ways to go before I could reach the minimum “payout amount” to get the money in my hand.  That sale energized me and I looked and poured over stats to see where and how the sale came. I scaled that process up as much as I could at my level of knowledge (pretty low at the time).  The sales started trickling in, I started to get the checks in my p.o box.  It was exciting but far from life changing. I could buy my cigarettes, gas, maybe pizza for the family but I kept plugging away.

Then it happened!  A check came that was right about 252.00, that same day  when I checked the mail and opened a couple of bills, I realized that I could pay 1 in full and 90% of the 2nd.  That is the first time that making money online led to a small flash of freedom for me. I saw it !  It was and is completely possible !    This may not happen for you over night.  That is ok! It will happen if you are consistent.
