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.
