Before I Started My Online Business

About Me

My First Taste

Hey there, my name is Will, and I'm a full-time Affiliate Marketer.

Most salespeople remember their very first sale working in a new business, but when I confirmed the internet could be used to generate income with my first online sale, it completely changed my life. I had discovered how to earn income at home with my PC, and I was beside myself.

It all started with my original search for a home-based business that I could do online, and after months of trial and error, I finally figured it out. Now it was time to scale things up to see how much money I could make at this.

But here's a little about me and what I did for a living before all that began...

Before That I Was A Loan Officer

From 2007-2015, I worked as a residential home loan officer for some of the largest lending institutions in the USA. I serviced clients from all walks of life and helped people secure money that would be used either for the purchase of a new home or a home refinance. And a lot of money sometimes. My largest loan ever was for just under ONE MILLION DOLLARS!

But don't let this fool you. I'm no genius, and I don't pretend to be. I understand what it means to work smart rather than hard, and doing this will make you good at just about anything you try. Working as a loan officer was more time consuming than anything, and just like with any regular 9-5, I traded my a lot of my time for money that I didn't have much time to enjoy.

I Wanted A Change

Like many of us, I wished for a change so as to be around my family more often. I was sick of being either out of the house or focused on work at home with my children. The mortgage business was great but after a while things began to spill over into my personal life, and I decided to take my life in a different direction.

I always dreamed of starting a business that my family could later assume, but work or life events would always get in the way whenever I would attempt to get one started. Now, the time has come to experience those dreams.

Helping People

So I searched. I consulted with various online marketing companies and ran the 'newbie gantlet' that most newbies navigate before they find the truth about making money online.

I tried out several different online programs, and most were either scams or complete wastes of time. And I even got swindled out of the entrance fee I paid with the first company I consulted with which made me mad.

Helping people has always been my passion, and if you knew me personally, then you know how serious I am about this. I wanted to continue helping people with whatever business venture I decided on, and although my initial encounter with online marketing wasn't the greatest, the experience gave me the idea that I've used as the foundation for this website.

iWorkOnlineNow

I've created iWorkOnlineNow to show you how it is possible to create your own online business from scratch, and I do this without requiring any entrance fees or those other silly membership requirements that some companies have.

And I also tell you where I went to try this stuff out in real life, before making the choice to sign up and buy a membership.

I include personal reviews with specific details and opinions about the excellent companies that helped me put my online business together as well as the others I have researched along the way, and I talk about the steps I took to get myself started from beginning to end.

I Still Help People

Or in short, I help people learn the pros & cons of making money online without charging for it through placing my information on this public-access website.

Initially, I created this place for my family members to come so they too could learn the online business process and how to make money from home. But it has since transformed into a resource that practically anyone with a PC can use. I hope what I have done here can help you somehow because this stuff isn't magic science, and it is fun & enjoyable once you get the hang of it.

You Can Train For Free

Some companies charge money up front just to talk with someone, and others will only give you the partial picture, but not here. You can leave your credit card in your wallet.

And you can still leave your credit card there even after beginning your online business training because the company I use to support my online business doesn't charge to try their system out. They are the only one with this type of structure because they are the real-deal.

Don't pay anything up front until you're able to try out what any companies offer is great advice. Most will ask for payment up front, but only the best will let you test things out for free beforehand.

Start Off On The Right Foot

If you are thinking about getting involved with an online business, I encourage you to do what I did and begin taking classes alongside people that are starting off in the same place. Everyone can relate because everyone will be wearing the same shoes, and this is the best type of environment to be in when you're learning something new.

And Get Excellent Support

There will always be the next thing to learn and the next stretch of highway on your journey. Having a community of like-minded people there to encourage and support you along the way with the right information is what you will need to achieve long-term success. And there aren't many real home business opportunities that I have come across that have the training, support, and integrity that you'll need to succeed outside of Wealthy Affiliate. I use this company to maintain my online business, and they are my #1 Recommendation to others who are starting out.

My New Life

Wealthy Affiliate was my final choice in the end and not just another stop for me along the way. The most important reasons for me are the real online marketing education and the incredible staff and community, with a live/on-demand support that continues to amaze me. I won't settle for second best when it comes to what I need to run my online business efficiently, and what they offer stands high above all of the other training programs available online that I have researched.

I now maintain this website and the other business websites I've created from home or anywhere else I need to with a PC and access to the internet, so I am happily living out the principles I discuss here.

The education I received from Wealthy Affiliate made it all possible, so I could not be happier with the way things worked out.
