Who am I and why should you even care?
Well, for starters, my name is Vanessa and I am nobody special. I’m your average hard worker. Mother of one, obsessed with my dogs. Happily living with my boyfriend.
Ya know…same old, same old.
The only difference is what I do for a living.
You see, I am a successful online marketer and entrepreneur and have been since 2013. I have been doing EXACTLY what I love for the past 6 years and honestly, I wouldn’t change it for the life of me. Of course, there was a lot of blood, sweat and tears lost to get to this point but hell, it was well worth it.
I wasn’t always this successful. Just a year prior to the start of my online journey, I was homeless and pregnant. When I say I was at ROCK BOTTOM, I meant it. There was literally no further down I could go. Back then I was living in and out of my car until that got repoed. Then I was living in and out of hotels until I ran out of money.
Just when everything looked bleak and I had nowhere else to turn, luck began to turn in my favor.
The one and only possession left to me (other than my dogs) was an old laptop I somehow didn’t end up selling. In desperation, I began looking up ways that I could make money. Lo and behold: my eyes were opened to the thrill that was Internet marketing. Of course, my first few ventures into the online money space were nothing but scams. I spent money I didn’t have or borrowed money just to fall for so many get rich quick schemes.
Just when I had begun to give up, I came across another online opportunity, one that changed my life forever: Wealthy Affiliate.
Now, I’m not going to sell you on Wealthy Affiliate and tell you all about it (you can read that for yourself by checking out my Wealthy Affiliate review here). Instead what I will tell you is HOW it changed my life.
Wealthy Affiliate taught me EVERYTHING I needed to know about marketing online, from the importance of SEO, building websites, getting traffic and even using pay-per-click advertising. You see, with this knowledge, Wealthy Affiliate gave me the tools and training I needed to land a job as a junior marketer. From there, I began offering my expertise online, taking on freelance contracts whenever I had time. It gave me the stability I needed to get myself off the streets and finally get to a place where I would NEVER end up on the streets again.
Then Wealthy Affiliate gave me the courage I needed to try and start my own online business. The first few months of paying for my Wealthy Affiliate membership and working 1 fulltime job and freelancing in my spare time, I somehow found the energy to begin my own online marketing business. After a few months, I was able to drop my 9 to 5 (hence the name of this site) and work full-time from home. 1 year after joining Wealthy Affiliate, I was able to live in my own apartment again. 1 year and 3 months in, I was finally able to buy a car again. 2 years in, I had more than $50K in savings.
6 years in and honestly all of the energy and lost sleep was worth it.
Now, I can safely say I don’t think I will ever be homeless again…thanks to Wealthy Affiliate. I now have the consistent income I need to pursue every little thing I want, no matter how ridiculous it is. I am able to work from home without the worry about commuting to work. I am able to give my son and myself the life we deserve.
So, what does this have to do with you?
It is because I want to help give you the same.
You see, you and I aren’t so different. In fact, I have been in your shoes before, guaranteed. I know what it’s like to work paycheck to paycheck. I know what it’s like to live with that constant worry. The thing is, I was able to get myself out of that situation and I know you can do so too. Don’t get me wrong, getting out of that situation is far from easy, but I know most of you who read this have that drive to do what it takes to do it.
After doing this for 6 years, I have seen it all. I have seen hundreds if not thousands of scams, all hyping you into thinking you can make thousands overnight. Take it from me, most of these programs are complete bullshit.
That is why I want to share EVERYTHING I have learned over the years with you and help you to earn a living online, doing what YOU love and earning as much as YOU want.
I for one know how tough it can be to know where to start. So, let’s keep things simple.
I create a special training course, designed specifically for people who are new to online money making. In my free course, you will not see any of the hype you see with other programs. Instead, I share my method and every step I have taken to earn money online, all that can be replicated by you to do the same.
Signing up for this free email course includes not only 2 free eBooks on making money online as well as a freelancing guide, but it also includes a free starter membership to Wealthy Affiliate, the EXACT place I started in 2013. This free training with the help of the starter membership at Wealthy Affiliate will give you a load of information you need to succeed on top of my personal experience and insight to get you started in the right direction.

just wanted to know if you work solely on your website ‘make real money on line’ or from the ‘Wealthy Affiliate’ website?
I am curious as I recently joined the Wealthy Affiliate website and am making my way through the videos. As I receive emails from you with video links I wanted to view these however every time I clink on the link no video appears.
Can you help me with the following link. This thing really work
I’m looking into it as we speak. But to be honest it looks like one of those cash flipping scams
Imagine you have to feed your family everyday, then your mother and father who is elderly and then your brother’s family of four move in because he losses his job, a family of 8 and just two primary pension coming in, my elderly father and I. Now you are approach my some cash flipping scams everyday in your in box, only to find out its more money they want you to put out for there shiny toys. Years and years go by and your left with hundreds of shiny toys that got you no where. Then one day you realize this is how they make money, just another pyramid scam like all the others. I”m a web developer and coder, I work with clients who like to mimicked they opportunities. I stop them dead in there tracks fast and not only warn them of what to come, but will have no part of it. If its not an real affiliate products that fulfills a need or solve a problem, then I will not market it, I tried cpa offers, cpi and cpv networks and they all just one big advertising lead generating networks that steal leads for pennies and promisses to pay out so much, none never really do. I find selling real honest products like those on amazon and ebay to be the best way to go, as for digital if your in training others to start and run there own niche that a wonderful way to make money, being a coach. And that what I do for my clients who is in there retirement years and can’t go back to work on a 9 to 5.
