FROM FAILURES TO ONLINE SUCCESS
Coming from a middle-class Indian family with working parents the core belief in the family was studying hard, getting a job and having a stable life. Getting a salary and budgeting accordingly was the norm – that was the way we were brought up. My Brother my sisters all took up jobs (all of them bankers) after completing their graduations.
From the time I was a kid, I resisted the stereotyped life. I was always the dreamer, the rebel, and the black sheep of the family. I wondered “How some people could have all the shiny stuff” or how they could afford Merc’s or BMW’s priced more than our home. My parents had a simple answer “They are rich”.
My parents wanted me to be an engineer and was pushed to study science at College. But my interest was always into Getting Rich, making money and creating a business. I still have the book that shaped my Financial freedom – it was Robert Kiyosaki’s “Rich Dad Poor Dad”. It shaped me into a different person. I started questioning core values of Assets and Liabilities in my family and got more rebellious day by day. In my spare time started reading Finance, Marketing, Branding, Psychology, Sales and Persuasion Techniques.
Withstanding the strong opposition from my parents I started my first business at the age of 21, I was discouraged at first and even ridiculed after some failures. But I was growing and the challenge kept me going – experimenting, learning with every failure and rising again
$136 – MY FIRST ONLINE INCOME
With My Beautiful and ever supporting Wife
By the time I was 32, I had married, had twin sons and was doing fairly well with my Stock-Broking business. I was earning more than any of my peers and was feeling success. But then came the market fall and the great recession. Within no time or till I could understand what’s going on I had ended up with some sizable debts ($200,000 to be precise). I didn’t expect much family support, but they hugely stood by me in my darkest hours.
With huge debts and nowhere to go, I was in severe depression. That’s when a friend told me how he as earning hundreds of $’s online with Affiliate Marketing. I had ample of free time – really nothing to do other than just thinking about the past. I decided to give it a try (actually it was the debts that made me move).
My initial days of Blogging.
I started this Blog and tried my hand at Affiliate marketing. It took me three months to make a mere $136 as a commission for recommending a Smartphone spy software which generated two sales (I know the product choice was bad) .
My Jr. versions love the sea.
That first $136 was fascinating for me – I started feeling positive about myself. With my initial success in affiliate marketing, I decided to take Online Money Making to a bit further and decided to start an Online Business. I started researching, reading Blogs, taking notes and preparing my business plan. I tried with every tip given and followed advice from the ones who were successful, but somehow success kept on alluding me. I used to pause think again, write my notes. Filter the things that worked, threw the crap out and began again. Achieving some results but not the one I’ve been looking for.
