I have had my problems with money from way back, historically speaking. I have always had someone to handle my money for the most part. But suddenly, I found to my dismay after a nasty breakup that I had to learn to do those things myself. Looking back, I cringe at all the mistakes I made back then. Money has always been the one black spot in my life. If you asked me to balance your checkbook, I could have done that and done it well. My money has always been a puzzle to me. It was like there were scales on my eyes.

I love to research the Internet. One day I thought I was exiting off of a website, I clicked what I thought was a link that said "Would you like to exit site now?" I clicked yes, and few days later I found all these amounts taken from my bank account. Apparently, according to the 800 number I called, the company said I accepted their offer. I found out after some research that even thought they only admitted to one amount being taken from my account, that their affiliates from four other companies cashed in also. It was a very expensive lesson to learn.

I have always been a advocate myself, so I started a little blog and found in my research a website that tried to help people avoid mistakes that you can make on the internet. They try the internet jobs and services and report back to their people their results. That is how I met Steve from "I've Tried That. He runs the site and helps people find good and reputable companies to partner with.

After getting me out of some pretty scarey scrapes, one of which was the money order scam. I was coming home from work one day, poor as a church mouse and I was musing as I reached into my mailbox how I was going to pay the electric bill that had to be paid. And like I always do, my daughter laughs at me at this: I always think "Wouldn't it be nice if my million dollar check came today?" She laughs everytime I say it when I go to get my mail. But hey, why not me? So I reached in my mailbox and guess what, there was a check in it for $3000, yes, you heard it $3000. I read further and all I had to do was return $2700 to the company and keep $300 just for depositing the check to my checking account. I simply had to go to Western Union and get a money order for the amount I would return to them. I would be doing them a favor by letting them know how Western Union treated me as a customer. SOUNDED FISHY TO ME, but I needed money. I had this nagging feeling in the pit of my stomach. I signed onto Steve's website and asked him what he thought of the offer. He informed me that it was a scam, just what I suspected. He said the check would have bounced.

So naturally, when I was ready to start a internet business, I went to Steve, and he introduced me to Wealthy Affiliate. It is not a "get rich" scheme. You will get out of it what you put into it. But if you are willing to work hard, you will succeed.
