I'm 23 and a recent college graduate. Ever since I stumbled upon the concept of online affiliate marketing back in 2007, it's been my dream to make this into my full-time job.
However, due to letting myself get distracted by shiny objects in the form of "online gurus" I chased multiple rabbits and got none.
Thankfully, though, I found WA and a proven, sustainable model for internet and affiliate marketing (although it applies to success in any field). Viewing internet marketing as a long-term venture instead of a get-rich-quick scheme has helped me continue to put in daily effort to reach my goal.
I realize that the internet is the present-age frontier and affiliate marketing is the 21st century "Gold Rush." The online business model makes reaching my goal of becoming a successful entrepreneur so much more accessible (in contrast to creating a physical brick-and-mortar business).
Finally, in understanding that I'm going to have to pour my time and effort into something in life, I want to make that "something" internet marketing. I enjoy the creation involved, and I also enjoy helping people with my efforts. It's a win-win scenario.
Best of luck to you all in 2014, and I look forward to getting to know some of you.
Graham90's Goals 3
1) I'd be happy with $4,000 per month. I'd be willing to live comfortably as a bachelor and not be tied down to a specific location at a static 9-5 job.
2) I'd be ecstatic with $10,000 per month. I would be able to invest in other business ventures and to travel the world to surf and snowboard.
3) I am going to put in 30 hours per week - roughly 5 hours per day - in addition to my day job to make this work.
