About Adam

My name is Adam. I have been through the ringer with sales jobs over the last 18 years. I started in the mortgage industry at age 20. It sent me on a 12 year venture, starting out as the office grunt doing everything that was asked of me, by the end of the 12 years I was phasing out of my own branch with several employees and the industry in the toilet.

I was 32 left wondering what I was going to do? 

My Wife and I

My Wife and I

As I worked every job around to pay the bills I searched and searched for the right opportunity to make the kind of money that I did when I was in the mortgage industry.  I grew increasingly agitated the longer I worked 10-14 hours a day just to barely make it.

My search for unconventional ways to make money began!

You name the MLM, network marketing or pyramid scheme out there, I either heard the pitch or joined the game. Eventually I realized there was not anything where I didn’t have to spend more money then I was making or had to sell my soul to the “screw your friends and family success train.”

My introduction to the internet marketing world!

Although I knew my way around the computer and internet, it was pretty much just enough to get myself in trouble. In 2012 I was introduced to just enough of SEO marketing to know that there was money to be made. After a short stint of working with it, the company just wasn’t prepared to bring people on yet. I left not knowing enough to do it on my own and not enough time because I was back on the paying the bills working for 10-14 hours a day train.

Enter Wealthy Affiliates

When I found Wealthy Affiliates I once again was on the search for relief. I needed to work less, spend more time with my family and take better care of my health (I was diagnosed with MS in 2011)! I did my typical search of the internet for work at home, work from the computer, stay at home, etc.

The Family

The Family

I was again just getting people emailing me back with cheesy lines, bad sales pitches and my favorite one-  that I am getting in on the ground floor of something huge! I wanted to puke!

I finally found an ad that said Create a free website in 30 seconds.

My wife and I had been talking about setting up a website that would be a family blog. I knew that you could make money with blogs through ads etc, but I didn’t have enough knowledge to do it.  When an ad for Wealthy Affiliates came up and I was striking out with my thoughts of working from home jobs I said to myself- ” what do we have to lose if its free to look into it?”

I watched the video and signed up for free since there was nothing to lose. I felt that I could at least learn something. Over the next half a day I went through enough training and work on the site that I had a pretty darn good looking website. I spent the next day working on it and I was sold on the fact that I can actually make money at this.

Wealthy Affiliates has unbelievable training that allows beginners and experienced marketers to gain invaluable knowledge. It was that knowledge I was missing from a while back. I was eating it up. In fact, there is new and more intense training added all the time. Along with the training, I was finding a community of like minded marketers that were willing to help each other. Yes, help! That is not something often said in this industry.

Again my name is Adam and I appreciate your time reading about how I came to start this website. I welcome any questions or comments. Please feel free to leave comments below or you can visit my profile within Wealthy Affiliates. (Here is a link to my profile)
