I’ve been Internet marketing since 2006 with my first small success coming in 2008.
I quit my warehouse job in 2010 once my affiliate marketing business was earning more from midnight —> 7:30 am (when work started) than working my job full-time for the entire week.
I love my fiance, traveling, the outdoors, tennis, being an uncle, and reading non-fiction books.
I live in Summerland, B.C. a cute town of 10,000 people in the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada.

For me, it’s always been about time and freedom. That was the goal. Here’s (part of the reason) why:
My grandparents just retired at your classic 65ish range. They worked hard their whole lives. They went south for the winters, golfed, and were ready to relax and enjoy that life full-time. But life had another plan.
My grandpa suffered a bad stroke, leaving him partially paralyzed on one side. Instantly travel was gone, golf was gone, walking was gone, regular daily life was gone. Everything they worked for, was gone. I’ll never forget what my grandma said to me in the hospital…
“And they call these the Golden years” as she shook her head
My heart sunk. Emotions swirled. It confirmed everything I’d ever thought.
The ‘regular’ path was not for me. I did not want to wait until the golden years. I’m thankful for this wisdom my grandma unknowably gave me. It helped keep me focused and motivated to make something, anything work.
I’m happy to report it’s been 10+ years running my own companies, traveling, and having the time freedom I’ve always wanted. Gosh I’m lucky.
