Marketing – A Personal Story of My Online Business Journey

Let it be known, this is my first article submission and I am doing this in an effort to follow the advice of successful online business entrepreneurs. As I contemplated what expertise I could possibly provide an Internet audience, it occurred to me the thought of just being myself and sharing my progression toward my own online business. So this is what I have decided to focus on, holding back nothing and telling it just like it is. Pretty, ugly, or in between, successful or not. I will start with events leading to what I will call my official grand opening of my online business. I do not want to waste the time of anyone so I will jump ahead of myself a little bit and let you know my profit making endeavor consists of being an affiliate marketer. I settled on this after many experiences and half hearted attempts in other areas which I will get in to later. Although I risk totally exposing myself, I will write these articles with complete detail and honesty. The truth is though, I am scared to death of failure but too naive to know any better. I hope you can appreciate this statement and I sincerely hope that following these articles may help someone who is in a similar state of mind or business beginning.

Also I would like to state that although I have done considerable reading and research on the topic of entrepreneurship and online business principles I have taken it upon myself to follow my own instincts and gut feelings which sometimes is in contrast to sound business practices taught by others. But I have always believed there is no right or wrong way to achieve your goals. The articles I intend to write are for the sole purpose of sharing my experience and not meant to be a guide for anyone to follow. Please consult the experts of your liking for that purpose, but if I do have something you agree with then do not be silly, use it with my blessing and know you are welcome to contact me: I will respond with integrity.

I would like to begin with my Internet business background before actually moving on to the first part of my affiliate marketing business series. Like most, I knew far less than I thought about the online world even with a lot of computer experience. I did not even realize there was such a thing as a mailing list. I thought I had just become very special to all these people who had nothing but my best interests in mind like they said. For those who know, that really is naive. Sparing the boring details from there I have bought a liquidation business, a kids clothing business, a gps tracking unit business, subscribed to Jeff Paul millionaire club and a $5,000 training course which brought me a prescription drug card business, a weight training equipment business, and of course a business selling his products, then it was buy into national grants opportunity business and money pit, Michael Kimble knowledge base and money pit, plus several online courses designed to having me live the easy life and making millions, and I am sure a few others, but these are enough examples to let you know how gullible I have been and although I have gleaned some useful information from these I am ready to forget these past experiences.

I hope you can sense the straight-forwardness of my intentions here and follow my personal journey into the online business world. Not right or wrong just laying it out there for real. My next article will begin the true confessions of my online business journey leading up to and including the grand opening of my affiliate marketing business which I officially declare when you read this article.

My intent with these articles is to be entertaining, share my experiences to be helpful to others, and of course to generate traffic to my site.

Kite races, snow golf and an ice slide add to the fun. Some serious competition can be observed as the Power Ice Auger World Championships are held during the weekend events. An adult Pond Hockey 4-on-4 Tournament is part of the action and horse-drawn trolley rides delight the entire family.
