Welcome to my journey of Building a Successful Business Online with Wealthy Affiliate University.
I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree of Business Administration in 1995 when the dotcom world was in its’ infancy stage. The business education I received focused primarily on how to operate a brick and mortar. So that is where I began as I sought to get as much experience as possible.
Over the years I have managed two (2) different retail establishments, worked as Client Services Representative for a non-profit organization dedicated to providing resources to small businesses, and assisted with the development of a small business into a multi-million dollar firm.
Prior to graduating from college, and in the process of working for others, I have dabbled in various entrepreneurial ventures. From mail order to direct sales to multi-level marketing, to internet marketing…I’ve tried every Get Rich Quick Scheme imaginable…putting out thousands of dollars, only to have minimal return on my investment.
The only thing I have had moderate success with was Affiliate Marketing, but as anyone familiar with Affiliate Marketing knows, there are numerous Get Rich Quick Schemes within that industry as well.
While in the process of Building a Successful Business Online with Wealthy Affiliate University, I work as an Accountant for a Construction Company. I have been employed with the company for over 15 years. When I started way back then, it was a small business with just the owner, me, one Superintendent, and one Carpenter.
Today it is a multi-million dollar Construction Management firm. I’d like to say that I had something to do with its overall success. I initially started out as Administrative Assistant and over the years I have performed any and every task from Accounting to Marketing.
I am the quintessential workaholic! You know that person who works weekends, holidays, or into the wee hours of the night to get the task done. Well, after spending the better part of my life choosing that “Career Path”, I am finally ready to fulfill my own dream of becoming an entrepreneur and start really enjoying life.
As I was doing some research for a product I found on JVZoo that I wanted to market, I came across the Wealthy Affiliate University website. My initial thought was, WOW this would be a great company to market as an Affiliate, so I sent an inquiring email.
It’s free to join, so I joined!
My intention was to just grab my Affiliate link and leverage my favorite online marketing mediums to drive traffic directly to it; however I got more than I bargained for.
From the very first day I setup my profile I received an influx of people from all nationalities welcoming me to the community and offering to assist in any way they can to help me become successful at building my internet business. This truly is a community for Internet Entrepreneurs!
The educational platform is amazing, everything you need to learn about Internet marketing, online business, and earning revenue from the net is right there! As I was working through Getting Started (Level), I began to realize I was going about this Affiliate Marketing thing all wrong. It was not surprising considering everything I had learned previously about the dotcom world was through trial and error.
On July 1, 2016 I made the decision to take this Affiliate Marketing Business seriously, and upgraded my membership to Premium. At Wealthy Affiliate University, I truly feel I have gone back to school to really become educated on the art of making money online.
I am so excited about my journey of Building a SUCCESSFUL Business Online with Wealthy Affiliate University, a worldwide community where you receive an online business education, build a reputation, interact with like-minded internet entrepreneurs, and have access to all the tools required to achieve lasting success, that I decided to share it with the world by chronicling my experience here.
