My first post…and the start of my journey

Make money onlineHaving spent a lot of time over the last few years reading many internet marketing / “make money online” blogs and websites, I have decided to create my very own.

“Why?” you ask

Well, towards the end of October 2017 I will be made redundant from my corporate job after nearly 16 years. I am seeing this as a great opportunity to really do something different with my life and embark on a very different career and life path.

I am taking a somewhat risky decision (with full support from my wife, I must add) to not go straight into another job but to instead pursue a career in internet marketing and “make money online”.

This blog is intended to document my adventures over the coming weeks, months and years.

Who am I?

Well for a start I probably don’t fit your typical internet marketer profile (or a least my view of one). I’m in my early 40s, married and have two wonderful boys. I don’t have a load of savings or “financial runway” so this adventure will really be make-or-break…or its back to the corporate life.

I do have some experience gained in the online world, mainly with niche sites and selling on eBay so I hope to be able to put those skills to some good use.

What are my plans?

I’m not going to give my specific financial goals right now but I can’t be slacking with this journey!

After some thinking over the last few weeks (and months…..and years), my plan is to build a business/income around the following areas:

  1. Niche sites – I will be working on 4 existing sites that I have
  2. eCommerce/dropshipping – using AliExpress but also looking at Pinterest as a traffic source
  3. A multi affiliate blog – this exists but needs a major overall in time for January 2018
  4. A local news/business website – 2 posts on that site already…so some way to go
  5. A “mums” blog in partnership with my wife. She already has some decent local followers on Twitter
  6. A big “authority” niche site around a hobby of mine. I hope to have video reviews, products, etc on this site eventually….but not started yet but needs to be up and running for January 2018
  7. Selling on eBay – already doing this by buying items from AliExpress and selling on. Does not make me much total profit yet though

All in all, that lot should keep me busy! My 2 initial priorities though are the niche site (#1) and the eCommerce/dropshipping model (#2).

That’s not all (folks)

As this will be my personal journey blog I will also be blogging about any other money making ideas plus also anything (interesting) that happens in my day to day life.
