If you have found this page, no doubt there is something about online marketing that has captured your attention!  For many of us, the thrill and rush of being our own boss and determining our own outcome fuels the passion to succeed!

From the age of 10, I had always wanted to own and run my own business.  I think watching my dad with his “side hustle” that generated extra money for him besides his regular paycheck was a motivator as well.  I can remember the summers in the neighborhood where I was raised, and how I found ways of making extra money for my younger brother and myself.  We would take cool-aid, freeze it, and sell cups to our friends for 50 cents and bake Ms. Goodcookies and turn them around for profit.  Yep!  Entrepreneurship has always been a part of me!

Early in 2007, I received an email from a friend of mine in Tampa, FL, who was so thrilled to tell me about a money-making opportunity that I had to try.  I had always, since the time I was a child, wanted to own a business.  I can recall selling Ms. Good Cookies and Frozen Cool Aid in the summertime to my friends in the neighborhood.  This was the start of the spark I always had to be a business owner.  My friend told me that I could make money simply by putting links on my website and getting money for them.  Of course, never heard of anything like this, and I was a total skeptic.  “So you’re telling me that simply putting a link on a website would make me money?”  This was the start of my intense research and studies into online marketing, and was I blown away by the information that I was learning about!

I would spend the next 4 to 6 months just researching opportunities and various companies that were claiming to provide money to anyone interested in becoming “independent representatives.  I built my first website, which was a basic site since I really didn’t know what I was doing.  I put a few links on it and KABAAAM!!  NOTHING!!!  Like many beginners, I was thinking of a few links on the site today, and cash tomorrow, but didn’t realize the process of internet marketing.  After a few more months, and learning the ends and outs, I started to see success with my endeavors.  Within 4 months after my first failed attempt, I received a check from Share A Sale, one of many affiliate marketing companies online, for $200.00.  The next two weeks, another check for $325.00, then another two weeks, $225.00, and the checks just kept rolling in, all from just a link on my site.  From that point on, I was convinced that internet marketing worked and decided to create a site where I could share valuable tools and resources for anyone wanting to get involved in online marketing.  I’m sure there is something of value you will find as you view the site to help aid in your online marketing adventures!
