My name's Theo McArthur, and I've been working online since 1995. I left my job and went full-time online in 2001. Teaching here on Udemy is probably the most satisfying thing I do. Being able to help others to learn life-changing techniques and business models.
Over the last 15 years or so, I've created and marketed many digital e-learning products and have also worked extensively in blogging and affiliate marketing.
I have always preferred to have multiple business interests, so I started selling on Amazon in the spring of 2013. Previous to that, I had never sold any physical products online. Today I also run my own independent e-commerce websites.
I'm still an affiliate marketer. However, I always wanted to sell my own products too, and Amazon was the obvious place to get started.
Starting on Amazon without the guidance of an experienced seller can be tough, and the courses I took myself were not complete and were missing certain vital parts of the 'puzzle.' I learned more through trial and error than anything else, and that's what prompted me to create a step-by-step blueprint to success on Amazon.
A year after starting on Amazon, I set up my independent e-commerce store to build an asset that was my own and could potentially be sold in the future.
Sometimes I get asked how I manage to get so much done. It's simply a case of organization and prioritizing (is that a word? Anyway, I'm sure you know what I mean!).
Obviously, I don't do it all myself, and I now have full-time and part-time assistants. However, when I first started, I had nobody. Just myself and a young family to look after at the same time.
If you want something badly enough and are motivated enough, you will find a way to make it happen!
