My name is Colleen Slater. I am the author of the free 60 minute affiliate ebook which explains simply how I’ve created a $10,000.00 per month income online as an affiliate niche marketer.
Here’s a bit of background to my story.
I actually started venturing into internet marketing in around 2001. At that time I spent so much money online buying the next best product that was going to make me rich that the police fraud squad called me to check that all the purchases were mine and that my card hadn’t been stolen (now THAT was an embarrassing conversation, believe me :O)
At that point in time reprint rights seemed to be THE thing and I spent a fortune outsourcing someone to create a reprint site that I was very proud of that virtually nobody ever visited.
I couldn’t really afford the money I was spending at that time TRYING to become successful online and after about a year and a half I through it away feeling like a complete failure.
Flash forward to the end of 2005.
Something happened in my life that was one of the most horrendous ordeals of my life involving my children from my first marriage. My ex husband didn’t return them to my home and the I was forced to get legal counsel to represent me in court.
Thankfully my children were returned to me after a relatively short period of time – however, a family court proceeding that started in 2005 is STILL ongoing.
My current husband and I didn’t have enough income to be able to afford a solicitor and I couldn’t risk losing my children.
I Had To Take Massive Action
I had no choice.
I remembered internet marketing.
I KNEW that I could do it…I was just missing something somewhere along the line.
I needed to fund a prolonged legal case as if my life depended on it – and as the mother of three children my life DID depend on it.
I lived and breathed creating an online income.
I had NO CHOICE.
There was no other option.
I HAD to make money and I had to make money now – yesterday, in fact!
So I started getting up at 4am every day to start to create an online income. I worked very hard for the first few months and a lot less hard as time went by.
And there lies my story and MY secret….
You have to want it SO BAD that you can taste it and breathe it through every pore in your body.
It’s true. When something comes along in your life that gives you no choice you WILL do it….at any other time you’ll just make excuses like:
I’m too tired,
I have no time,
This is too hard,
I can’t do it,
I’m not a guru,
This isn’t for me,
Everyone will think I’m a failure,
I can’t afford to do this
Let me be straight with you, if you CAN’T afford to do this then you really NEED to do this.
In around 2006 a beloved friend of mine in the US sent me a DVD that had helped change her father’s life around.
Silly me….I let it gather dust for around 5 months and then in January 2006 I decided to watch it.
That DVD changed my life forever….
What was it?
The much parodied “The Secret”.
How did it change my life….
It changed MY perspective.
It made me belief that I deserved all the things that I longed for – our own home, financial freedom, more free time, a well-funded retirement.
It made me believe that I could do anything I set my mind to.
It taught me to change the negative thoughts that had been filling my mind for years into positive thoughts.
And from that time onwards my life changed for the better in EVERY facet of my life…my relationships, my health, my state of mind, and of course my bank account.
So if you take away anything from my story take this:
That you have to REALLY have to want those dreams on your list…and be prepared to do what it takes to get them.
That you have to believe that you DESERVE all those dreams on your list…and go out there and get them.
