It’s never to late to teach an old dog new tricks. That’s the way I feel. Not that I am old yet but I am not going to die young anymore.

I am an architect and worked all my life in construction in different capacities. That was a lot of fun most of the time and I did earn enough money to support myself well. But never enough to save and invest sufficient funds for my retirement.

A few years ago I came to the conclusion that I have to do things differently and start making money for myself instead of for my boss. There are a few options available and after some serious consideration I decided to give Internet Marketing a try. It sounded nice and easy, you can work wherever there is an internet connection and whenever you feel like doing something.

So I tried. And that was the big mistake. You cannot succeed in anything if you only ‘try’ – you actually have to commit to achieving what you set out to do. I bought courses and products and played around with them for a while. I even have a few websites and did earn a few dollars but after one year of ‘trying’ I found that I had spent substantially more money then I made. Not a good way to make a living. So I gave it a break for two years and now 2014 I am back with a vengeance at IM.

I have signed up with John Thornhill’s ‘Partnership to Success’ training course. I will stick with it and for once do as I am told for the full 12 months of the program and I will create good informative digital products which will help people to improve their life.

Watch this space (or actually the blog posts) for my progress.

Have a great day

    Hi Gaby

    Quite a common theme I find on the about me pages in the blogs, it looks like a lot of us came to a similar conclusion after “trying” to make it online, or took a break from it like yourself and then came back with more grit and determination.

    I think it was all too much of info overload at some point 2 years ago and I dropped right out of it for a year and decided to come back and make one final committed attempt at it, focus intently and do whatever it took to get it right. Fuuny thing is I really hadn’t tried anything for more than a few weeks as I was diving from product to product and not really focusing on one thing, which as they say is the key.

    So here’s to focus and drive to succeed!

      Hi Andrew
      Most products are sold with the promise of instant success. And wouldn’t that be nice. But guess what: it’s continous work and it’s hard to begin with. I think that’s the reason why newbies go from one product to the next looking for the pot of gold. We now know better and yes let’s stay with the P2S course and suceed ๐Ÿ™‚
