About Me

When I first began making my living online there was one quote that I recited to myself on a daily basis to help me get through the difficulties I was facing at the time. This quote reads, “If success was easy, everybody would be successful.” I still live by this quote to this day and often tell this to people who are first beginning the journey to making a living online.Me1

My name is Vanessa and if you are anything like myself, then you have probably just had enough of working for somebody else just to barely make ends meet every month. Trust me, I was there…once. Actually I was in a much worse situation than most of you when I finally started working online and to this day it is the reason I am still alive today.

Now, I’m not going to give you my whole life’s story on here. However, I will shorten the events that I was forced to go through before I began working online full-time and began to make real money free online.

June 2009

I moved all the way to Denver, Colorado from Washington, New Jersey and I did so in order to start completely over with a clean slate. You see in New Jersey I was living with my abusive mother and working full-time (if you could even call it that) at a local Burger King. I was doing absolutely nothing with my life so I took a drastic step and enrolled full-time in a veterinary technician school called Bel-Rea which was located in Denver, Colorado to give myself the chance to finally become successful.

For a full year and a half I was having the time of my life. I had met many great people at school and was pulling honor roll status. I was living in my own place and my dog Bronx and I seriously couldn’t have been happier.

Then of course as luck would have it everything literally went to shit. With only 6 months left at school until graduation I failed an important test I had for my Hematology class by one damn point and suddenly my life was flipped upside down. Because I failed that class I was immediately placed on Academic Probation, kicked out of school for 6 months. While to many people who may not consider this to be too bad, it gets worse. You see, I was only able to afford to live in my own place in Colorado because I was receiving monthly financial aid checks from my school that helped me to pay all of my monthly expenses including rent. The moment I was placed on Academic Probation I lost those checks and soon found myself without a place to live. While I had a part-time job at a local doggy day care, the money I made from that still wasn’t enough.

Thus, my life forever changed and marked the worst 2 years of my entire life. Within a matter of months I not only lost my apartment, but I lost my job and car as well. I managed to meet a very nice owner of another doggy day care who took me in as a staff member and let my dogs (I had gotten a second one before everything went to hell) stay at the place for as long as we needed. While there I worked my ass off, nailing down 2 full-time jobs and 1 part-time but it still wasn’t enough to cover my future rent bills. To make matters worse I had to move out of the place I was staying and moved into a hotel room until I could afford a place of my own (big mistake).

Then bad luck struck again and a few weeks later I not only lost 1 job, I lost all 3 of my jobs. Soon enough I burned through my savings and could no longer afford to stay in my hotel room, thus I ended up literally on the streets. This was and still is the lowest point I have ever experienced.

3 months into living on the streets and in and out of hotel rooms (when I managed to get my hand on some money) I met a man who told me what he was doing for a living. To this day I still don’t know what this man’s name is but he is the one I have to thank for changing my life forever. So, if you stumble upon this blog I want to sincerely thank you. If I had never met you, I’d still be homeless today. Anyway, this man took pity on me and showed me how I could make money online and to never stress about money again.

Now what I am about to tell you is 100% true and I would not have believed it if I hadn’t seen it for my own eyes. I went to this guy’s house one day (to start working online and simply because I didn’t own a computer) and was at amazed by what I saw. He had three shiny brand new cars in the driveway (Nissan 350Z, Chevy Camaro and Range Rover) and his house was worth at least 2 million dollars. Of course when I asked him if he had paid for all of this stuff with the money he made online he said yes, I couldn’t believe it. I mean for a long time I always told myself that if it was too good to be true, it usually was. However, I was intrigued and he offered to help me.

My Journey With Wealthy Affiliate

By this point I had become pregnant with my son (this is a story for another time as it is equally messed up lol) and this man paid for a hotel room for me for a whole 6 months, co-signed on a car (Mitsubishi Eclipse), paid the car payment for 6 months, gave me about 5,000 to work with for myself and took me by the hand to begin working online.

From then on my life changed for the better, though it was far from easy. For months I worked my ass off, harder than I have ever worked before but it did pay off for me and in ways I could never have imagined. My first month with Wealthy Affiliate was all about the learning curve so I didn’t see anything for my efforts. However, the second month I made $5,000 without breaking a sweat. That was more money than I had ever seen in my life. After that the money I made steadily grew until it became the amount I make today which is roughly around $7,000-$10,000 depending on the month. This man was right, I never had to worry about money again.

There is a reason why I wrote the quote in the first paragraph of this page: I want to show people that if they think they will be able to make a million dollars overnight, they are in for a very rude awakening. When people try to make money online, many of them give up way too soon. Why is this? It is because for many of them there is too much work involved and they are impatient to see money come their way. Let’s face it, if I was able to do it being pregnant, homeless and living in and out of hotel rooms, anybody can do it. It is hard. I am not denying it. However, if you bust your ass for as long as you need to, the money will come. You just need to be patient until it does. And from the point you start making money, the amount you make will only grow for the many months and years that you continue doing it.

That is why I created this website: to show and help people to find the right online money making opportunity for them and to save them from the same situation that I found myself in. Like I said, this path will be far from easy…but it is definitely worth it.image

    Hi Vanessa
    Great start here.
    Looks like you have had a rough time but the one thing I notice about you is your drive. WA is a great place to learn the IM system without any pressure and the community of people helping each other is unbelievable. The reason most people fail online is due from their quitting. It is tough to get started but the rewards are great for those who persist in achieving their goals. You have in your hands a gold mind don’t let it go.


    • Nessa says:

      Thank you very much for the compliment :-) And you are right. Most new affiliate marketers give up with this business before they have even truly started. One should never give up too easily. Give something 100% of your devotion and patience and you will see…everything will pay off :-)
