About CHattery
Joined July 2014
I'm currently a self-employed Web Developer. My main client is a small direct marketing company. We pay affiliates to drive traffic to our health supplement and small gadget sites. Doing my best to work my way up! But I love it!

A few years ago, I lost a job 3 months before my son was born, got another one and was let go within 2 months(2 weeks after my son was born). After that, landed a job that I absolutely hated. That year was rough, but it helped motivate me to not rely on other people(companies) to trust to provide my income. I need to do things now that will better my family's future. Currently, I'm doing what I love, flexible hours. So, part of my goal is achieved.... I made more time! [updated 6.10.17]

Prior to this I was a Web Developer working long hours through stressful conditions only to make my bosses money. I eventually felt like I lost my soul working on meaningless projects and features for whiny clients. I didn't ONLY want a few hours in the evenings and weekends for my wife and new son, my friends, my pets, my band and my hobbies/interests. Every night, I get home from work, go on an hour walk, eat dinner, watch ONE show, then it's time for bed. Sometimes I had tasks for my second at-home job or even a freelance project to work on. I'm ALWAYS trying to think of new internet ideas. I knew there had to be an easier way. There has to be a way I can enjoy LIFE. Work Smarter, not Harder!

I know how to build web sites, I know SEO. I know video production, graphic design, have written content for an arts/entertainment magazine, I just didn't know how to use my talents for my own financial gain in the capacity that I needed.

Ever since deciding to dive into Affiliate Marketing, my mind and soul has come alive!
CHattery's Goals 3
Money Goals
I'd be happy with suplementing my job income. $4000/mo.
I would be living comfortably at $6000/mo. Those are my initial goals. I currently have 2 hours a day to put towards this, but already know quite a bit about building websites and SEO (I've held a few jobs that encompass both, but doing it for other people, the way they wanted.) Now I can put my own ideas into play along with the training. I have a community site I'm working on as well to work in tandem with the other sites.

Thanks for the comments. Sorry I'm just now getting around to this. I had a great idea yesterday and ran with it. Bought up two domains and added my affiliate links. Now I need to finish content and get traffic running. Busy day. My only roadblock was going into work today and NOT being able to work on it. Tonight I have to do one of my freelance gigs after I spend some time with the wife and kid, who I'm ultimately trying to create more time for. I really hope I have time this month to take advantage of my discount. haha.

Hey Christopher!

I just wanted to let you know that there's 1 day left for you to get a 59% discount on Premium. I highly recommend this for you. I think it'd be a great move! But, it's optional.

Let me know if you need any help other wise :)

Just dropping by...
