Follow The Path Of an Online Jedi and Quit Your 9 to 5
“The more I tried, the more I failed. I was about to give up when I finally made the right decission.”
Do you know what it's like to be in a job that you really hate, but you don't know how to escape it?
Sure, you could just quit but then you would not be able to feed yourself and the ones you have to take care of.
This is exactly the situation I was in a few years ago and I was trapped in it for about 3 years. My wife and I unexpectedly became parents, so I was the one who had to bring in the money for the three of us.
I was going through hell!
My boss was an asshole who underpaid me, well-knowing the situation I was in.
My wife, being stressed by taking care of the baby, kept nagging and complaining that I never was at home to help her.
Additionally, we hardly had enough to buy all the stuff we needed for our small kid and ourselves.
There were times, when I simply wanted to run away and leave everything behind. Of course, I would never have done that but I think everybody knows this feeling. I didn't know what to do. How could I be there for my wife and my kid, while making enough money? The whole situation became that bad that my wife even threatened to leave me!
That was when I decided that I needed to make a change.
Losing my wife was not an option. I would do anything to make her and my kid happy!
So what do you think I did?
I tried to find ways to make extra money while keep working in my shit job! There isn't much I didn't try.
I washed cars, delivered newspapers, worked part-time in a coffee shop (after my full-time job!!), and many other jobs.
Needless to say that this was not a very happy time. Instead of spending more time with my family, I spent way less!
While my wife saw that I was trying my best to feed the family, she felt left alone.
There wasn't a day where we didn't argue.
I sometimes even didn't want to go home to avoid the arguments.
Things had to change! And they had to change fast!.
After one year of increasing the pain instead of making things better, I decided that I wouldn't get far if I continued this way. There must be something else to make money without sacrificing all my time with my family.
This is when I started looking into "how to make money online". I was already spending a big amount of my free time online, so what if I could use this time to generate an additional income? Wouldn't that be the perfect solution?
I suddenly felt energized and dared to hope again. What if I finally could make things work? Change things to the better? Making money online has fantastic advantages and can lead to a completely different lifestyle. Three things came to my mind immediately.
Spend more time at home with my family.
Extremely low costs to get things going.
Unlimited opportunities and income potential.
Having that newly found motivation, I jumped right into it and expected to get immediate results. Making money online shouldn't be that hard, right? So many people are doing it successfully!
Little did I know that many of those "successful people" are scammers and liars! As a complete beginner I was easy prey for them and I fell for many false promises. There were quite a few "get rich quick scams" I became a victim to, that made me spend money without getting anything in return. I was devastated! Would my last hope get destroyed that quickly, too?
But I didn't want to give up that easy. I was in my second year of trying to turn things around. If I would give up now, my wife would lose all faith in me. It could have been the end of our relationship.
So, I kept searching and after a while I came across a way to make money online that sounded legit. Even after researching it more thoroughly, I couldn't find any real negative aspects of it. The starting costs where extremely low and, with the right work attitude, the income could reach heights I never experienced before. New hope was sparked and I hungrily started learning more about this method.
This new method - well for me it was new - is called Affiliate Marketing. I was intrigued by the way things are done in affiliate marketing. All you do is recommending awesome products or services to other people. When people buy through your links you get commissions. I was blown away!
With my renewed energy, I jumped straight in and watched countless videos on YouTube. There is so much amazing information out there for free. I could watch for months and still find more videos on this topic. But I also had to take action. So I came up with a few points that are essential for getting started with affiliate marketing and make money as quickly as possible.
Here are the 4 things every successful affiliate marketer needs:
I knew now what was needed to build an affiliate business but that wasn't the end yet. No! I actually fell for another few scams that promised quick riches. Don't ever fall for those who tell you that you can make money overnight without doing any real work! Please! Just don't! It doesn't work like that.
What I needed and what you need, is a step-by-step guide that shows you exactly what to do. Something that is actionable and gives you everything you need in small and digestible bites. I was sure that I would either have to spend time or money to reach my goals. But that didn't scare me off. I really needed to make this work. (I chose to spend time because I was stretched thin already and I made it happen!)
And then, suddenly it happened. By mere chance I stumbled upon a website that changed my online business and life completely. It was exactly what I needed. It took me by the hand and showed me how to start this business from scratch. No fluff, no false promises. Just actionable instructions served in small bites.
I had been scammed so often, so I was skeptical at first. But since there is a free membership without any strings attached, I had nothing to lose...
When I found Wealthy Affiliate, I immediately joined the Free Starter Membership. I was blown away by the professional training, that was also very easy to follow. Whenever I needed help, other members and the founders where always there to help me within minutes. I finally had clear instructions laid out in the correct order. All I needed was to follow them and keep at it. I could hardly miss my goal then!

"Found Success At Wealthy Affiliate"
"I always wanted to make money online but failed miserably many times. I joined Wealthy Affiliate a few years ago but wasn't successful their either. So I gave up.
Luckily, after some time I went back to Wealthy Affiliate and really followed the training this time.
Turns out that it actually works, when you take action and complete the tasks."
"Making a Full-Time Income Living in Bali"
"It was always my dream to live like a king in Bali. After joining WA, I worked my ass of for roughly 12 months. Now, I am sitting in my own villa with maids and other personal, living the laptop lifestyle. Forever grateful!"

"Don't use your weekends to escape the week, but change your week!”
P.S.: Act now before it is too late! Too many people don't take action and think "I can do this later, in a few weeks or months." Don't be that guy (or girl). If you don't start now, you lose valuable time in which you could build a happy future. In a few weeks or months, you will be grateful that you listened to me.
