Ok, my story. Where to start....
I guess I'll go back to year 8 (1998) in high school. Me and a friend had a plan to make money off the internet. My mate told me that some sites will pay you 50 cents for a click on their banner. I setup a small page and he got a script written that made people click on the banner before they could visit our proper site. We promised some free stuff on the other side, I won't say what (15 year old boys....) but there was nothing, so those people got stooged. I think we made about $2 and thought that was pretty cool. Anyway, for whatever reason, we never really got too far and so I went back to studying hard :)
Fast forward a few years later, I'd finished high school, spent a year at the Defence Force Academy in Canberra, studying Aerospace Engineering. After the first few days I realised it wasn't for me, but I ended up staying the full year...
So I went back home and continued engineering for another 2 years, where my greatest achievement was getting 50%, 50% and 53% in my subjects one semester.
After failing yet another subject over summer, I decided that I needed a break from school. I just couldnt be bothered anymore. So I took a year off, got a job, planned to go overseas and found out about IM.
I really battled in those first months of IM. I spent all I was earning at my job and really had no idea. I came across Wealthy Affiliate too and they helped steer me in the right direction. But there was still something missing. I felt like I was running around chasing dollars all day, rather than building a business. And I was also losing waaaay to much on adwords.
Then I came across Mark and things started looking up. I headed off overseas for a few months then arrived back home in november last year. Since that, with Marks help, I've been kicking goals. I wasn't sure if I could start repaying my debt without a proper job, but with Marks guidance, I've been able to keep my head about water.
So, looks like that crap factory job last year will be my last ever experience of actually "working for the man". And aren't I happy about that!
What does the future hold? Who knows, but I know I am going to be very successful at this and I'll do just about anything to get there.
Hope that sheds some light on me :)
