I'm a full time machinist with with a passion for online marketing. I love meeting people and hearing their story. I almost always find we have something in common.
Making part time money online is already a reality for me. I have two online shops that are P2P (peer to peer) marketplaces hosted by a company called Etsy, They both started out as hobbies that turned into home based businesses.
My shops are Gaia's Treasures and Precious Wire Designs. Gaia's Treasures is an exotic crystal shop and Precious Wire Designs is a specialty jewelry shop showcasing my hand crafted Sterling Silver wire wrapped jewelry. I have a grinder and polisher, so I can make my own cabochons which adds an extra personal touch to the jewelry items I create.
Now, in owning a .com domain for both of these shops, I joined to Wealthy Affiliate with the hopes of learning how to better market them. I felt I needed more control over the direction of my shops, and the clients that visit them, than Etsy provides.
What I found here was so much more.
Not only did I land in the best and most comprehensive internet marketing community in the world, I discovered I could incorporate affiliate marketing into these shops through a custom WordPress site and host them right here. I just love that!
Now, I am working towards sustaining an online presence that allows me to
enjoy financial freedom while helping others. My goal is to be able to fire my boss in less than 5 years and dedicate myself full time to being my own boss.
With the training and support I have found here at Wealthy Affiliate, I am well on my way to fulfilling that goal and living life on my own terms. ;)
Here's to Wishing You the Best of Luck in your marketing endeavors!
