Two weeks ago I met up with a group of “Internet Marketers” in Cape Town. This quirky bunch of folk have decided to ditch their normal day jobs and make money online. Some of them sell ebooks online, others sell specially designed software. Others, like me, enjoy working in an affiliate marketing environment.
It’s a risky business, this Internet Marketing, but every person at the table agreed that they wouldn’t do it any other way. You can choose to do your own thing when you want to. You have the freedom of going to your little girl’s ballet recital or watching your son’s rugby game without asking the boss’ permission first.
I’ve been working ‘online’ now full-time since 2006 (and in total since 2002) and I love every minute of it. Of course, it has it’s ups and down and it has it’s challenges, but it can absolutely be done. Over the last 11 years I’ve made a lot of mistakes. I’ve also made millions. And I’ve lost millions.
But it’s been an incredibly exciting journey.
I’ve decided to start blogging my thoughts and ideas. I hope you’ll join me on the journey!
