Hi I’m Mario And I Quit My Job Thanks To My Online Business
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
And it wasn’t, the jobs available for me were as a labor I was a skinny 17 years old guy so you can imagine how hard this was for me, after some weeks I got used to it, I had several jobs such as carpenter, roofer, dishwasher, boats cleaner, construction labor, house cleaner, landscaping and so on I have met a lot of people through the ride and learnt more English working with Canadian people than in the English school.
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 store. 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 andask 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! You can take your job and stick it…
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
A friend of mine was making very good money by selling hair straighteners on mercadolibre (the ebay of latin America), I wanted to try it too, I signed up and started selling on this site, I did a research about some products, I was not confident about buying products from China as they sell low quality and also there are many fake Chinese sellers so I decided to buy from United States, I did quite well and still sell electronic products on this site, thanks to this online business I was able to quit my job.
I was making around $2000 dlls 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.
Just What I was Looking For
Navigating on the internet to look for ways to make money online is very DANGEROUS, there are tons of scams online and some are specially made to catch you and your credit card, it took me a couple of months to know how to find out which ones were good and which ones were scams here are some aspects to consider:
I fell into some of this scams losing a lot of money but as I see it, it was an investment to learn how to uncover a scam, the people close to me know that I always try to see something positive from a bad circumstance.
So finally I came across to the best training there is on the internet about affiliate marketing, did i mention this is one of the best business models online now days? I did a research and found out that many people are making a full time income from affiliate marketing, I HAD TO JUMP IN and this training put me in the right direction to start my online journey on affiliate marketing, the best is that you can try it for free.
After joining this training I could see the light at the end of the tunnel and the rest is history.
Leave a comment if you have any question or want to give me a feedback, thank you for reading me.
