As an Affiliate Marketer, I get to do whatever I want and whenever I want either at home or on the go. I hold this business close to my heart because of the freedom it brings me. It’s more than money can buy. Hello, my name is Mike and welcome to my website. I love everything about the Affiliate world (well, almost) and I have been graphed into the affiliate marketing industry since 2005 but got serious around 2008.
I am far from the typical rags to riches type that you’re probably accustomed to seeing this type of stuff online. I am far from it but I worked hard and found some success that way. The make thousands in a few days or weeks just didn’t work for me!
What did work was when I decided to take the affiliate marketing thing seriously. It went a little like this.
Let’s Roll Back The Clock a Bit
Growing up in the country hills of Jamaica was humbling but I found it adventurous and fun. When I look back, I would not trade it for anything. I had morning chores, school work a little garden but my love was catching wild birds, fishing and pigeons. I started with two and ended up with almost 25. It was fun and I enjoyed it. ??✅?
In 2002 I immigrated to the United States. I had big dreams. My plans were all set and it was set in motion a few months after getting all the paperwork together. I was in school and I got my first job in Down Town Brooklyn on Fulton Street. If you visit there now, it’s unrecognizable.
I was a salesman in a Korean owned apparel fashion store. At this store, I learned skills in dealing with people and selling. I was good at it. But this wasn’t my dream job. I actually wanted to attend college. My hopes and dreams were dashed when my mom took sick and I had to put college on the back burner.
It was at this store where I met the mother of my daughters. She was from Trinidad. We had two beautiful girls together who are now excellent students and smart.
It was around this time that I discovered affiliate marketing. I needed extra money and the internet seemed to be providing that for a lot of folks. I jumped at the chance and began to learn I all could about the affiliate world and what it could do for me.
It was hard in the beginning but I was determined. The first affiliate marketing training program I bought was called the Rich Jerk. It came with a website, website hosting, traffic training and so on.
I was excited and quickly bought a domain. At that time I didn’t understand the value of picking the right domain for your website. The one I picked was called Richsplurger. Go figure! I guess you would say I was going to get rich and then splurge my earnings. LOL. It made some sense but it was not good we property name for a business.
Unfortunately, my website failed to make money. I was sad and I felt like a loser. The first taste just got me deeper into making money from home and the affiliate marketing concept. Over the course of a few years, I can honestly say that all my fails, late nights and struggles have made me who I am today.

My First Sale As an Affiliate
I remembered it like it was yesterday. I was using Adsense I believe and one day I so happened to log into my AdSense back-office and say $1.00. I was like what.. I made money online! It was then I knew this thing called affiliate marketing actually works.
You too will get that feeling. After that, I made more and more and then some with Clickbank and some with Amazon and some with CJ or Commission Junction and some with Maxbounty and some with eBay and the list goes on and on and on. But, you get the picture.
What Changed for Me?
What truly moved my business upwards was when I bumped into Wealthy Affiliate. The program made all the difference. It was difficult in the early start but it helped me. I quit Wealthy Affiliate twice because of financial reasons but I didn’t give up. I kept going back to build my business and I am so glad I did.
