From the time I was a young child I knew I wanted to start my own business.
My father had to work two jobs to supplement his police officer's salary when I was very young and later I watched as he slaved away the last 15 years of his life working 12 hour swing shifts in a factory job he hated.
These experiences had a direct impact on my decision to start my own online business in 2005.
Of course, I had very little expertise in business and zero eduction so I was forced to work a full time job while I struggled for years to get my business off the ground.
That moment came in 2010 after years of trial and error when I finally had my first profitable month.
Still, it was not enough and I was forced to keep working meaningless jobs I hated to support my family...
My AHA Moment
Finally in early 2011 I made the fateful decision to hire a mentor who opened my eyes to the world of product creation.
I went on to develop several information products as well as software products in 2011 and became fortunate enough to join the small pecentage of people earning upwards of six figures per year online.
Since that time I've created dozens of products as well as cofounded a few different online companies, most notably of which was an affiliate network called ProductPay which I sold for a handsome sum in December of 2012.
My time now is spent juggling several projects in several niches online as well as helping struggling entrepreneurs realize their own dreams of financial freedom.
