Hi Ismael, it's best to set small goals as you go along as it's easy to get distracted if you own your time.
All the best to you! :)

burning the bridges behind he had no choice than to win the battle in order to survive. A firm decision backed by a strong belief to succeed despite whatsoever and all that binded by an internal and external commitment is the master key to success.
To change your life YOU have to change first. It took me time to realize that too. i congratulate you on your commitment. you are in the footsteps of the great people outthere inthis crazy, but great industry we are all trying to make a differance.
My resolution is on the way...

Keep on keeping on, I believe in you dude!

What a great Idea!! I am doing the same. But in my case I don't want to return to my job at the migratoin Board after my maternity. I would like to stay home with my 2 kids. They need soo much time with me. I hope I will make some more dollars. Just now I've made 18.00 dollar from an affiliate program and 4 dollar from adsense. I started in feb 2010. I have 3 websites up. I need more traffic. That what I find Hard. Some one who know some automated free traffic tool. Not onlywire, maybe some good free article submitter? I wich u good look.

Ismail,
Thanks for the inspiration! I'm on my way too...Already spent 15 years of my time for my day job, still can't give the worthest thing of life for my 3 childs..and it's TIME...
Seem to be hard for me trying, spent at least extra 6 hours a day but I'll never give up! No Income yet from my 4 websites! adsense or affiliate, but with Affilorama I believe I'll find them in the near future!

Wish you Luck! and Me Too.....

there are some good syndication products that will give you links to help build SEO rankings. you may try submission services like ama and unique article wizard. also, there are some decent article submission tools that submit your articles to various directories. the problem with these is that they are hard to keep current. so many article directories come and go, and most of the directories that allow auto submission are pretty useless anyway.

Hi, this is such a great place for inspiration,i wish you all the best on your journey Ismail,if you would like to have a look at this strategy and get some feed back from others on the forum... I am not going to be long winded, but will give you a foundation for you and perhaps others to follow if they choose to.So here goes
Step 1
write 10 articles and submit these to ezine articles
rewrite these articles 10 times and submit them to article dashboard,article alley,article rich,go articles(there are tons of others but i want to keep this short)
Step 2
use a blog networks such as AMA,create additional articles with your keywords and submit them to the above (AMA) for more backlinks*remember you are aiming for unique articles in each submission,there are tools out there as jmpruitt mentioned,i.e article rewritter,best article spinner etc.. etc
Step 3
Directory Submissions, a good service is Submitedge.com, check them out(300 submissions should be ok for starters)
Step 4
create short 1 - 3 minute videos about the product or service that you are promoting, use animoto.com great service (http://animoto.com/),create you tube account http://youtube.com, create a tubemogul account
http://tubemogul.com and submit your videos
Step 5
create unique content(articles) which link to your site or sites, use wordpress.com,hubpages.com,facebook.com(yes facebook, pr 10)squidoo.com,zimbio.com,tumblr.com,blogger.com, googleknol.com(think thats right) ok,,,, remember unique content.
Step 6
Social Bookmark your online web properties, using digg, delious.com,rededit.com etc.. there are tons of these sites
if you do the above you will see awesome results .. if you need any assistance send me a pm..
Till next time
Thanks for reading this.. I hope it has been of help to you..

WEll, i didnt quit, I got laid off, but it ammounts to the same thing. after running my own services for a while to make ends meet, I have gotten to a point where my affilaite income exceeds what I was making at my job and am focusing on affiliate sales full time now. although the freelancing was great, and not that hard to do, Affiliate income is better money for the time invested.

I wish you the best of luck Ismail, and look forwrd to hearing about your progress. Hello, all fellow AM's! I just recently joined Affilorama and am very impressed, albeit it somewhat intimidated by the wealth of knowledge and content in this site.
Not that I regret getting my Bachelor's degree in Business / Marketing at a university, but I wish I had found and invested my time in this a few years ago! I have similar goals of quitting my day job one day soon, as probably many of you do as well. Good luck all and I look forward to talking with everyone soon!

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi Eric,

Welcome to Affilorama!

Your Business/Marketing degree will do you a world of good in internet marketing. The same business and marketing principles apply when you have a business online; it's just the medium which is different.

All the best!

Hi Ismail,

esolutions is right. Your recent posts are showing 404 errors.

I sure would like to know how far you have reached in 2011.

I am in a similar situation though not voluntarily.

Best of luck.
