Hey! My name is Mario And I’m Making Over $200,000 Dollars a Month Thanks to My online Business…
I want to tell you a little bit about myself…
I was born in Monterrey one of the 3 biggest cities in Mexico where I have lived almost my whole life. After I finished high school I made a trip to Vancouver Canada to learn to speak English.
I went to an English school, my parents paid for this trip, we were not rich so they made a big sacrifice to help put me through this English school and I always be more than grateful to them for it.
I did not have any of their money left for tripping or going out so I had to work to pay for my stuff, I was a 17 years old guy and never had a job before so I knew this was not going to be easy
I did a little bit of everything but most of the jobs available were as a labor, I was a skinny 17 years old guy and lifting heavy things was not easy for me, after some weeks I gained some muscles and learn some tricks so I got used to it, I worked as carpenter, roofer, dishwasher, boat cleaner, construction labor, house cleaner, landscaping and so on I met a lot of people from these jobs and learnt more English working with than in the English school, I could say that I learnt English on the streets lol.
When I was back in Mexico I worked for about 2 years installing telecommunication equipment for the biggest phone company in Mexico, travelling a lot inside north Mexico, I really was not happy doing that, was not making a lot of money for the hard working hours and I just hate working for someone else so, I quit.
I Was Not Going Back To Work For Somebody Else Again!
I wanted to have my own business so a friend of mine and me open up a natural flavor iced drink stall. We thought it was a good idea because my city is hot as hell.
It was pretty simple we purchased an ice crusher machine and bought the fruit scrapping from a third party, at the beginning we were pretty excited but after 6 months didn’t see the business going anywhere, the problem was the location, we didn’t have enough money to move it somewhere else so we decided it to closed it.
So here I was an unemployed entrepreneur that had recently failed on his first business adventure, going back to work for my last employer was not an option for me, I could imagine my ex-employer’s face of satisfaction watching me walk through his office and ask him for my job back, I could almost hear him telling me “don’t worry Mario being my slave is not that bad”. No way! I was not going to go back.
Every single advice I got from my parents and friends were “ you should get back to work for this company” “it is secure” “it is impossible to succeed with your own business” I could not see a light at the end of the tunnel and I was actually thinking about asking for my job back :(.
My Starting Point On the Internet
At a family reunion, I heard my uncle say that a friend of his was making very good money by selling hair straighteners on eBay, I wanted to try it too so I created my account, did a research about some products that were trending and invested in a couple of them (all the money left of my savings were into those products) and then boom! My first sale.
This was huge for me, my first breakthrough! I realized that making money on the internet was possible.
Then I started selling more and more, I was making around $2000 dollars a month which is not bad for living in Mexico but I was not even close to my financial freedom. This was my starting point on the internet which gave me free time to look for others sources of income.
I googled “How to make money online” as most people do when starting out lol and came across these videos with people talking about the new “opportunity” to make thousands of dollars in a few days with a little investment, most of these sites were just BS but as a newbie I couldn’t identify the BS from the good platforms so I bought one of these “opportunities” for $50, felt for the hype and lost the money.
After a little research, I came across “affiliate marketing” which is one of the best business models online nowadays, I joined this platform called Wealthy Affiliate, its training put me in the right direction to start my online journey on affiliate marketing.
Good online platforms and training on how to make money online with affiliate marketing exist and Wealthy Affiliate is the best one in the field.
After a few months of training and hard work I was able to make money with affiliate marketing, I was making around 3k a month from affiliate marketing and my eBay sales combined, not a fortune but enough to pay the bills and forget about a 9 to 5 job.
$500,000 + From My Dropshipping Business
I found these youtube videos of people making a lot of money from Shopify and Facebook ads, I was pretty skeptical because they showed insane stats on their videos like making $5k a day in sales or 10k a day, it seemed like scam to me but their strategies with paid advertising made sense, so I opened my own Shopify store using the dropshipping business model.
I wasn’t seeing profits at the beginning but after testing many products I found one that sold like hot cakes and I started to have $50 days in sales, I scaled my paid advertising with Facebook ads and $100 days started coming in…
After 4 months I got my first 1k day in sales then steady 7k days and this is how I have made more than $500k within 9 months, the best part of this I’ve made $350k in the last 2 months (November and December of 2017) this is more than 70% came in just in the past 2 months.
I’m not just writing this to brag you but to show you that anyone can do this don’t waste your time working for somebody else, stop making somebody else rich, invest your time and money on you, learn how to make money online, believe me, you are your best asset.
This is the training that I got to learn how o use shopify and facebook ads, it’s called ecom elites made by my buddy Frank Hatchet, he was the first one to make public this strategy on youtube, so I recommend you to check it out.
If you want to stick to affiliate marketing, I recommend Wealthy Affiliate.
