This Is My Story
Have you felt like this?
If you have ever felt lost, unmotivated by what you are doing for a living or have a burning desire inside of you that you are destined for something much bigger than what you are doing. I know exactly how you felt.
Growing up in Vancouver, Canada (Burnaby actually) it was a difficult choose to make a move down to Mexico. But with a baby on the way we decided to head down to Mexico for an extended vacation to be closer to Mariana’s family, that was almost 2 years ago.
I was working for a family friend back home, making sales calls to her clients. The job was easy but didn’t challenge me the slightest bit so after awhile it became pretty disheartening. I knew that I needed to find a way to make money while I was down in Mexico so I decided to start looking at my options on how to make money online.
Why Did I Want To Make Money Online?
I am motivated by freedom. I love the thought of being able to come and go as I please, not worry about money and have no one hold anything over me. That is the type of lifestyle I want for my family and creating an online business can provide exactly that.
Another thing that motivates me is helping others do what they thought was impossible. When I can help someone else achieve something that they thought was out of reach, that really makes my heart sing. That is a very important part of my life.
That is how I came up with the idea of my blog, I will document my journey, the good and the bad, each step so anyone who wants to follow it can do so and will have the blueprint to success right here. I also wanted to help and bring as many people as possible along the journey as well. So as I go on this journey to a passive income, I will help others do the same. I’ll be the first to admit that my stuff is not the most polished, it’s not the prettiest but I guarantee you this, it’s the most honest and heartfelt and transparent view of what it takes to build an online passive income. I document it each and every week with no filter.
Summer of 2016 is when everything started to shift.
I started looking into Kindle Publishing and exactly how I could make money online using that model. I found that lots of people had had some great success with it and it seemed to be the most newbie friendly way to enter the internet marketing world.
I was looking for something that was going to have low start-up costs, a small learning curve and would a fairly quick return on investment. Kindle publishing was that thing! I had managed to save up about $300 or so and got my first 2 books written and published. I choose to outsource the whole process, meaning I didn’t write, create or design the books myself. I did the MOST important part, market them. After my 4th book, things really started to take off for me. I kept publishing more books and my income kept growing. By December I was making a few thousand dollars a month in passive income from my books and was started to understand the in’s and out’s of the publishing world.
As the months past and I started meeting more and more people who wanted to get into Kindle publishing or who were already in it and I started to notice something. They were all running into the same type of problems that I first ran into when I started. These people said they were taking courses but they never were really able to get their books making some decent money. That is when I started My Self Publishing Blueprint. This is my step by step video course on what I have done to make my first $1000 online with Kindle publishing. I created this so I can help others along my journey and give them the tools and resources they need to make their first $1000 online. I realized that the hardest part for me and for most people was making that first $1000 so I designed a system for people to follow and essentially copy my exact formula to success with Kindle publishing. This course has had some great success so far and I believe it will be a staple in the Kindle publishing world for years to come.
What does the future hold?
That brings us to Summer 2017, I am living a fully passive income lifestyle now. My official date for leaving my job is in July, but I only work a few hours a week now. As I continue to grow my businesses (and my skills) the next major milestone will be for my wife to be able to leave her job completely and then we will be truly free.
I will continue to document and share my journey with you so you can watch and learn exactly what it takes to not only live a passive income lifestyle but to create one from scratch for yourself.
Together we can make anything happen!
