About Jay Gumbs
Joined January 2007
My name is Jay Gumbs and I’ve been doing affiliate marketing since February 2006. I’ve been doing it full time since March 2009 when I decided I was consistently making enough to quit my job as a civil worker.

I’m proof that you can make money online from anywhere in the world because where I come from, a small island in the Caribbean called St. Vincent and the Grenadines, most people don’t even believe that it is possible. Still I get my checks in the mail on a regular basis and deposit them at the local bank.

I got started making money online after seeing an ad in the back of Small Business Opportunity magazine. I had been looking for ways to make money because I wasn’t happy with what I was making at the job.

I had tried MLM – you may have heard about Quixtar. That wasn’t for me especially in St. Vincent. I had wanted to do some other offline businesses but they never got off the ground.

The magazine ad would eventually lead me to advertising affiliate programs on Google Adwords where I made my first sales commission of $29.00.

This first sale got me hooked on affiliate marketing and I made it my business to learn everything I needed to know in order to make this a full time gig.

I would say that I failed a bit though in the beginning because I was trying to learn everything on my own and after a while during the first year I wasn’t making any money. There was something I was missing and I didn’t know what it was until January 2007 when I joined Wealthy Affiliate.

I’m pretty much a regular guy who loves to have fun. Guess I didn’t mention it before but I’ll be 37 in December.

I hang out with friends on the weekend, hit the clubs or the beach depending on which friends.

If and when I do travel, I usually like to go to Florida around the Ft. Lauderdale area where I have some family. I spent Christmas 2009 there with my mother and my uncle.

As far as hobbies, I love playing chess but the thing that I love most is listening to music and trying to figure out the samples. My favorite genre is hip hop but I grew up on basically everything from reggae, soca, blues, country and rock music so I pretty much listen to everything.

I’m still trying to figure out how to make money from my passion for sample based music.

That’s me in a nutshell. Add me to your network and let me know if I can help you in any way.

Peace.

Jay

Hey Jay,
Happy New Year bro.
i had to take care of some financial emergencies and I did. As you know, I purchased the yearly premium membership. Now I'm really in the game! i think I need help prioritizing the many steps I must make in my transition from store owner/ collector/ musician to an online entrepreneur. Is there any type of training I can follow within WA? any consultation I can get? Can you help me sort out stuff? should I seek advice from Kyle/ or the community as a whole? I am a bit uncomfortable because I an not too sure of the protocols but I know I need help. I have a lot of hard assets..physical, bulk stuff like vinyl records, Art, stereo equipment, jewellery, electronics, furniture etc. Then there is the Music. I am an arranger / composer/ player/ teacher--many skills that I notice others are using on line that I think I can do amazingly at with little effort except that I don't know the tech side. I think I could probably book myself to play around the world on gigs all year round if people heard my stuff but I 'm just learning Garage Band.I know it all has to be separated into genres, stores, platforms etc but where do I start. Should I just make a chart of what I think is the superstructure and run it by you or someone else?

And I have started to shift the direction. I am negotiating with a thrift shop owner to sell stuff out of my store on line for a commission. She wants 40%(I prefer 30 or max 33%) to post on her Facebook, kijiji, ebay etc. She will complete all sales and keep a record. I trust her but who should establish the price?Is there a standard? I know there is a site that can give a price on anything based on averages of auctions around the world in the last year. Should I price the stuff then let her sell for what she wants then pay me my price?This is happening today. At least I will get some movement. But the ART, RECORDS, STEREO, I think need their own website.

I don't want to overwhelm you with this stuff. So if you could give me some pointers for the organization or just point me in the broadest direction I would appreciate it. The fine tuning can come later but at least you have some idea of the picture.

Thanks again,

John

Jay is all this worth it? I'm 19 and sometime next year I'm going to begin to once again not have the opportunity to make my own choices. I graduated in 2016, and have been working part-time as a Tower Climber for a local ISP company. I'm not sure what to do with myself. When I'm not working I play games, even have been thinking about going to college for something game related but I'm so distraught and unsure. I'm not like my brother, he instantly knew what he wanted to do. Is it so wrong for me to think that I don't wish to work all my life? To think that I could eventually generate enough income per month that I could do something else I enjoyed? My parents have raised me well but have not been the best examples of financial stars. I'm so tired of exploring options on my own. Do you really generate enough money a month that you were comfortable with leaving your job? And what is your website?

Here's an idea. If you really love games, use that passion to build a game related website. I think there's a guy here on WA that makes up to 5 figures ($10,000) with a game review website. Is it all worth it? Follow the courses here on WA and a year from now you'll look back and be able to answer this question yourself.

What's your favorite game?

To answer your questions, I did leave my job in 2009 to do affiliate marketing full time because I was generating significantly more money than I did working for someone else. I'm still doing well even after 7 years on my own. I have a number of websites including the one you read before you got here.

This is a good opportunity for you and you can even make it your career if you want. Picture yourself just playing games whenever you feel like, reviewing them on a website you created and collecting a commission check at the end of the month. Can you picture that?

I just started college on line, but I really want to take a crack at making this wok for me here at WA . My website is up but I need to find the next steps on getting it up and running .
