Mom, Digital Nomad, World Traveler, Full-Time Affiliate Marketer, Living the Laptop Life!
My name is Ashli and I first got into affiliate marketing back in August 2016, when my son was 4 months old.
I'd been looking for a way to make money online because I didn't want to put my son in childcare and I wanted to be able to travel whenever I wanted to.
I considered starting a freelance business, but then decided that I would be too tied down to clients and I'd still ultimately be trading hours for dollars, which is something I wanted to avoid (I'd read Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki and really wanted to build passive income streams instead.)
When I learned about affiliate marketing, I realized it was exactly what I was looking for so I dove in head first.
I was home with my baby son so I worked in between caring for him. As soon as he went down for nap, I started working. I would work on my phone while I was feeding him, I'd take him for walks in the stroller and work from my phone then, too.
Every night I'd stay up until the wee hours of the morning working on my online business.
I will never forget the day that I made my first affiliate commission. I logged into my Amazon account and discovered that someone had bought $1200 worth of business textbooks using my affiliate link.
My husband was out of town for work at the time, so I immediately called him and could barely contain my excitement enough to get the words out!
My income has only grown since then.
I am so grateful I stumbled across affiliate marketing, because it's allowed me to provide a lifestyle for my family that I could've only wished for.
We love traveling and move quite regularly for my husbands job. So far I've lived in Australia (where I was born,) France, United States and we're about to move to Japan in the next couple of months.
I am able to take my business with me wherever we go, which is incredible!
The sky really is the limit when it comes to affiliate marketing!
