Over the years on the internet I have evolved. From a person that have been working 3 jobs to being involved in multiple businesses and now investing in projects. I want you all to look back at where I was. I want to share the struggle, because it is real. I want you all to know that it is also possible to be able to make a living online.
From the first video of 2015, I explained growth. Below is proof that I have grown from old Windows PCs, bad neighborhoods, ugly apartments to now nice condos, Apple devices all day, and enjoying the growth of my brand new office.
How I have grown. This is my first home office. I basically took the kitchen area of my apartment and turned it into a mini home office. It had a nice couch, well old couch. Everything here was donated or bought at a salvation store. I posted this back in the day when Problogger asked us to post our work office.
After about two years in this place, I was then able to leave and got myself a better place to live. It was actually in a nice area of New Jersey, but in the south. I got a 2 story place that I rented and I had more than enough room for just myself. Here is the video tour on it. At this time in my life I actually quit my job and was doing affiliate marketing and digital sales full time.
When I bought my First Home, I turned the 2nd bedroom into an office. At first, it was in the kitchen. As you can see in this video below, that I basically just moved in. I was also excited that I bought my first home. The best part about this is that I also then got sick of working at home all the time. I even wrote a post how overrated it was.
So then I decided to work out of a co working space. I also had my first employee that came to the office with me all the time, another reason why the coworking space was a good decision. I enjoyed the time that I can go to the office whenever I needed help from my small team member. It was a good work experience to go in and out of the office, a break from the normal house air I get at home.
I lived in Jersey all my years, then a milestone in my life came. The opportunity to sell one of my companies/softwares, OfferSnitch. I moved to Atlanta and partnered up with an amazing team to grow my business. We got a nice office, at first it was a lawyer office. We took all the walls down and turned it into a more open space.
This was one of my proudest moments to go from a traditional affiliate/digital marketer to having an office and running a business. I learned so much from this experience. Though it was a short one. I learned a lot from this experience and I am glad at the decision I made at that point of my life.
I then moved to Florida and stayed there and continued to create my own offers, lead distribution, even consulting. I also got back into affiliate marketing and blogging. I started working from home again. This time, instead of just a regular sitting desk I created myself my own Ikea Hack standing desk.
Now I am back in New Jersey, my home and I have teamed up with some past marketers to take over the internet. We now have an office with close to 15 employees. We started with just 2 employees and now constantly growing. We went from an open space office to now rows of employees.
I am proud of my journey. How hard are you working to reach your goals? What sacrifices have you made. I went through hardship and came out with success. I believe if you want it you can easily get it. I worked 3 jobs and now I am writing checks. Hardship will come and challenge you, it doesn’t mean you should give up.
It is like going to the gym, you have a goal in mind and all you have to do is persevere.
