I just came back from a fantastic trip to NYC and Hawaii with my family (wife + 3 kids). Being from Norway it is a quite long journey and I had never been in the US before.
It was a great experience! We spent the first 5 days in hectic New York City with a hotel room next to Times Square. It was cold, but we Norwegians are accustomed to that. Then we caught the plane to the Hawaiian island Oahu for the next couple of weeks. I love Hawaii and will definitely come back.
Here is me and my family ready for the Diamond Head hike:
I have to admit I didn't work a minute with my affiliate marketing efforts these three weeks...
But every evening I logged into my Amazon Associates account and checked my Google Analytics data.
It was so cool to see that even if I didn't work, I still made sales and people still stopped by every day on my site! This is really what I want to do for a living, and it was a small taste of my possible future.
I bet many of you have had the same experience.
On top of that: When we came home to Norway, this envelope waited for me in the mailbox:
A new check from Amazon with $2543! Weeeeeee. This is my second check from them. Maybe you read my last blog post too about how happy I was when I got my first $1000 check. :)
I don't write this to brag, but I hope it can inspire others.
