Now let us get back to my story…
I have always been searching for opportunities online because I know that many people make money online and is having a great time doing it.
When I consider people like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg and many other influential people, I see that they have something in common – they are all involved in the computer world and are rated as the world’s richest and most successful people.
I read and study their stories and is inspired by what I have learned.
I too realized that I also have the potential to make a change in my life by following their movements as much as possible.
One of the first things that I did was to change my mentality; to do this I started to read success and motivational books. The ones that had the most impact on me were:
- Think And Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
- The Science Of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles
- Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki
- The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
- And recently, The 4 Hour Work Week By Tim Ferris
These books set the tone for me to be who I am today. I highly recommend you start with Think and Grow Rich if you are going to start this journey.
They are some of the most inspiring and real life-changing books which have helped me and will also help you to take action in this life.
During my school years, I was always attentive in classes and one thing that I can remember a lot about are my teachers saying was that I have a very high potential.
That was something that was repeated to me very regularly. They could see something in me that I could not see at that tender age.
Although I was always doing good in school, I was never sure of what I wanted to become in life.
All I knew is that I had a mind of my own that I wanted to cultivate and make it the best version possible.
When I graduated from high school, I went to continue learning more about food and beverage – since it was what I was doing in high school as my main focus.
From there I went on to a local training agency known as the HEART trust NTA.
Ii is one of the best skills program that I see in Jamaica for young and old alike to develop their minds, skills, and expertise.
It is a program which is free to take part in and you get to choose which skill-set you would like to partake in.
I went on to become the student council president, and I did learn that when you are in a leadership position, you are expected to lead and to find a solution for any possible problems that may arise in your environment.
The experience was a very good one; I learned a lot and up to this day is very grateful for the opportunity that was given.
After I left the training program, I immediately was enrolled into a J.O.B by my professors at a nice restaurant located in Rose Hall (a very famous region toward the west side of Jamaica).
I was very young and not so much experienced.
Things did not turn out very good for me at this small restaurant which didn’t do much business at all; it was a restaurant called the Sakura Japanese Restaurant – some nights we didn’t do any covers at all!
As a young man working in Jamaica where the economy is not the best, I was a target for older folks who didn’t really approve of a young person trying to come in and “steal their food”, so the older folks felt maybe a bit threatened, which was by the way not an intention of mine.
One particular staff made it a point of his duty to steal my tips when customers would leave any form of compensation on the table.
I was naturally not pleased about this and I did get my supervisor involved which turned ugly.
To make a long story short, I shortly left this job and went back home without any clue of what I was to do next.
A Quitter Never Wins And A Winner Never Quits…
However, since I am not a quitter, but a winner, I soon applied for another J.O.B at the local burger king.
I learned a lot during my time and spend about 2 years before I decided that I wanted to work in the hotel industry.
The hotel that I did the interview for was located in Negril which is like 2 hours away from where I lived in Montego Bay.
I had to relocate from Mo-bay (Montego Bay for short) to Negril and it was a good decision.
Couples Swept Away Hotel in Negril is one of the finest, professional, and most fun places that I have ever worked at, and to tell the truth, it is because of the people whom I worked with. To me, people are what makes a place what it is.
Being the mover and shaker as I am, I spend only two and a half years in Negril and after that decided to try my skills at the cruise lines. I did try it and it was by far the most challenging experience of my life.
On the cruise ship, you do not get a day off at all! It is like you are in the military, you have tons of boat drills, which is great, but it is over the top overwhelming.
I did not spend too long on the cruise lines, as I quickly realized that “sea-world” was not for me at all, I did only two contracts and decided to make another move…
Introduction To The US
Now, I was about to make one of the most important decisions of my like.
I went ahead and signed up for a program that was being advertised for people to work in the United States, it was a job to work in the hotel program in the states, which is a joint program organized by the Labour Ministry of Jamaica and the US Labour Board.
I did not waste any time in jumping on board.
I knew that the US was the most desired place to work in the entire world and offered the most opportunities to grow, so I wanted to become a part of this world leader.
This was in 2004 and things were looking up. I was successful in passing all my interviews and got the chance to be employed to work in the US.
I was having the very best time of my life in the US, the economy was going well and things were looking upward until the recession hit in 2007.
I did not get the chance to go back to the US until 2011… I really did not like this unsure lifestyle at all so I turned to the internet for help.
My Internet Journey
Now the internet is not anything new to me at all, in-fact I have been addicted to “Googling” stuff and just doing stuff online from ever since I can remember.
I wanted to make money online without having to have to worry about losing a job, getting laid off etc.
I naturally came across a lot of fraudulent money-making business “opportunities” when I typed into google “how to make money online” obviously there are a ton of results that you will find in google; over 549,000,000!
That is over five hundred and forty-nine million results! There is a chance that some of these results will contain scams.
There is also a good chance that some of the results will contain legitimate opportunities as well. It took me months to find out what were real and what were not.
I tried so many things that I was convinced that they were all scams…
But all this hard work and dedication did pay off. I found that there was a very special place on the internet that was teaching ordinary people like me how they can set up a successful online business and profit from it.
The best thing about this company is that they offered their tools and the training for absolutely 100% FREE to try out, that includes setting up two FREE websites to start, plus training on how to move along and keep earning.
Where else online did some company let you try out their products for free? I was just so amazed to see that a website was really offering that to the general public.
The name of this highly recommended website is Wealthy Affiliate.
Take a look below to see exactly the breakdown: You can also click on the image to take you to the welcome page where you get full access by entering your name and email (No payment information needed) 🙂

Look at it this way; most days many people spend more than $5 for a cup of coffee or a beer or some things that are not quite essential in life.
