Hello Wealthy Affiliate team members! I am approaching my fifth week now with the program, and although I have slowed down a bit due to my fulltime job, I am now settling into a routine.
Allow me to tell you a little about myself. I was born in Virginia, grew up in Rhode Island, lived in Alaska, and I want to spend the winter in the Caribbean. I received a degree in Internet Communications from a New England technical school, and after building websites for a while, I went back to bartending and construction. That was where I was most happy and those trades also allowed me to travel.
Although my chosen trades have allowed me to travel and work in different parts of the world, I was stuck in places for a whole tourist season. Also, the trades take a toll on the body, so I am now ready for a change. I want to travel and see the world and still make a living with my chromebook and an Internet connection.
I have been online for almost the entire time the Internet has been around. I have been looking for an online business that would allow me the freedom to do as I please, while still making a decent living. I have tried many different online ventures and all have come with varying degrees of success. I discovered affiliate marketing a few years ago and I knew it was the path for me.
Affiliate marketing in my opinion is the answer to all of my questions. Promote other people's products and receive commissions. What could be easier? I have read many books on the subject and most of them are very well written and informative, but they all were lacking something. I believe that this community will fill that gap and allow me to achieve my ultimate goal - FREEDOM!
