When I first began my journey on the road to financial freedom, I hunted the Internet from A to Z looking for the right model, method, and system. I had not used the Internet to buy anything up until then so I was skeptical about the viability of an online business. I was very leary of pulling out my credit card and entering the numbers into an online form. My knees felt weak when I finally bought my first ebook – pretty funny looking at it now, because I buy ebooks like so much kleenex now, but $50 dollars was allot of money to me back then.
So my first ebook cost me a whopping 50 something dollars, and looking back on it now I realize that my very first ebook helped me on my path to the lifestyle I enjoy now. It acted as an introduction to the world of online income, marketing, and Internet traffic, yet the information it held was fairly simple.
That first ebook filled my mind with the possibilities of an online business that runs 24/7/365. I saw a survey site once that showed a husband and wife working on their computers overlooking a tropical beach. That image is still burned in my brain, and the amazing thing is, I’ve experienced that exact scene a fews times in the last year and a half. As a matter of fact, we just got back from a trip to Palm Springs for three weeks, in which we were laying at the pool with our laptops. By 11:30 in the morning our commissions were over $300 and my night-fall we we’re at about $900-$1000 USD. It still feels like a weird dream to my wife and I. Of course the “things” we have and the “things” we do don’t mean a hill of beans if we don’t have inner peace, so most of my daily work now is on my own thought processing, and balance. I’m a little on the OCD side. 😉 (more…)
