Hi, My names Michael Van Gulik, and I used to be a roof tiler laborer, who worked so hard as a tiler, I become really good. I tried to do an apprenticeship, and even basically finished it, I had week left of tradschool, but without a doubt; I fell out with my boss at the time. Exactly; so I couldn’t finish my schooling.
If you are not aware; roof tiling is not a 4-year apprenticeship like all others. It is a 3 year apprenticeship. This made me even more happy as I completed my apprenticeship. Everyday waking up early, I always had that reminder that it only 3 years!
Well, I did all my time as an apprentice, and then had a falling out with my boss. What can you do? it happens, things happen, you just need to keep moving forward. I was actually lucky. Incase you aren’t familiar with the way this world operates, people do angry things all the time out of anger and frustration. I was not one of those people, and never have been.
I have always watched that I never grew an angry heart. I did have that common sense about me. Although I didn’t finish my apprenticeship, I still held on to being happy, and treating people respectfully.
After I left my job, I worked part-time as a laborer, with other building and bricklaying firms. I basically did what I could until something changed or I could level up my contention. It never came; not in the building sphere anyway.
What did happen then?
Well, I turned 34 and as result of being ruined during my career as a roof tiler, I came across online marketing. Now, this is a huge jump from roof tiling I know, but listen to my technique, you will either relate, or keep reading without any change.
I was applying for jobs while sitting on the doll (government funding) waiting for a new job, when one day I received an email from a firm claiming that my resume was a good fit with them. I filled out all their applications and went ahead working for them from my laptop. I was to manage their revenue section. I received $5000 dollars from them and my job was to transfer it to another one of their accounts. The whole time, I was very sus on not meeting them or having an office. Well, after I transferred that sum, I never heard from them again, and that was it.
But what this experience did, was wake me up to the online world, and investing. The first thing I did was look up how to make money online. I already new about the stock market from this fake job, because I was to transfer that 5k into their bitcoin account. Since I had made a bitcoin account myself now, and tried doing it with the little bit of money I had – I knew I needed to earn more money..
How to escape the grueling legacy of being a tradesman
Are you prepared to change? my journey has taught me that although you are good in one industry, that isn’t a reason to cancel out all other options. If you change careers, it doesn’t make you forget about all your other hard work. It makes you a larger person. When you have experience in more areas than one, it puts you in a good position to hit the big time.
As I knew I needed to make more money to invest into the stock exchange, I looked up the exact words ‘how to make money online’ and guess what happened? a website popped that offered to make people rich.
How did this site work?
It boasted website capabilities and custom website builders to which you could use to build a website, and make money through commissions. It’s called affiliate marketing. When I heard about this, it actually made me very angry.
I had slaved-away, and gone through hell, when I could have been building my own online business, and would have never been through so much rubbish in my life; right now I’d be rich!
What is affiliate marketing?
Affiliate marketing is when you build a website, and write some content, which can be about anything. Take for example audio. Wireless Earbuds, you write an article on your favourite pair of Earbuds, and then publish the article to your website. In turn, if you have joined an affiliate program like eBay, you can grab an affiliate link off one of their products, and add it to your article. When you do this, if someone buys some Earbuds from reading your article, you will get the commissions.
How easy is that?
How good does that sound?
How many people would do this do you think?
How awesome would it be to be able to write some content, and publish it to your own online website, your own online business?
You can say whatever you want; and thousands upon thousands of people will read it! what if you were a person who had heaps to say? what if you were a person who didn’t have anything to say?
No Matter who you are; this is business. Business isn’t about our personal selves; it’s about exactly what it says – Capital. Capital can be cash or physical investments. Business is about money, so no matter what you say or do, and no matter who you are, if you want to start this, then jump on board and get your show off the road.
How to start your online business today
More than likely, you are a tradesmen who has nothing saved up. This look on life can be worrying. If you have worked your whole life as a tragedy, but you don’t have many assets, you can take care of that right now. You can start an online business that doesn’t require anything. No insurance, no liability, no employees, no office, just you.
As long as you have a laptop and internet connection, you can start this now. You could be back at work tomorrow smiling that you are suddenly ahead of everyone.
Everyone at your work could have everything: your just sitting there watching and wondering why they have it all, you work as well, except you have nothing? this is ridiculous, and I know what it feels like because it happened to me. Everyone else has everything, and I have nothing because of a few small choices I made growing up.
If you want to start an earn money through affiliate marketing, keep reading ahead while I show you the process.
First, you need to pick a niche. I’m going to get straight to the point here. A niche can be on anything, now being a tradie, there’s all possibilities that you will have plenty of niches. I made mention earlier of one within the Wireless Earbuds. I have another online business that does that and it’s a awesome little niche.
For example check out this lesson below:
That lesson above is what helped me create my first two online businesses. Now, I’m not trying to sell you anything, although it could sound like that. Now way. Im taking my time, which is left on earth, to help others get out of that space of nothingness. When you have a job, but you just don’t have anything else. I know what it feels like because I have been there before.
Affiliate marketing is a multi billion dollar per year industry, and I want you to claim a piece of that pie. Why should it be left to everyone else to share, while others are still looking without being able to find. It’s what my niche is, that’s why I made this site.
A niche can be in any space, you can try Googling the word Niche. Upon doing that search, many blog posts will return. You can read through them to understand more on what a niche is, but to make money online, you need to return to this website, and this training. I understand that whoever is reading isn’t going to very young, and because of this time is of the essence.
On the other hand if you are young, then magnificent!
Once you have chosen a niche, say you like a product on eBay. You will think of a name to call your website. Like me, I called my other Wireless Earbuds site Earbuds FIRST. See how it’s a business orientated name? like Earbuds FIRST: im sort of saying ‘Earbuds are your first choice, so get them first”. It’s a company name; so people are happy with that.
If you are happy with everything I have mentioned in this article, then please ask me any questions you may have. I’m leaving this article here. I would very much like to work with you in the future. If you want to contact me directly, then my contact link is at the bottom of this website.
I look forward to working with, thanks for reading!
