Welcome to this Hub for Web project I create to share my experience and knowledge about making a living online. I hope this would help you find the right way to start your own journey.
I’m a Chinese immigrant living in the Netherlands. I love traveling and explore new territories. I worked as a Team Leader for an International tech company and run their RMA department.
It was a nice job and I was really good at it. However, there’s always a bit dissatisfaction in me that the job took so much time. I just couldn’t imagine to live like that for the rest of my life.
I am a firm believer to live life to its fullest!
If you ask me what’s the meaning of life, my answer would be experience. I spend quality time with family and friends and I expand my horizon with many hobbies. I read, paint and play the piano.
Travel the world and connect with different people is always a passion for me. While traveling, I would like to stay in the exotic place for extended period of time. This is because I would like to see what it’s like to actually live there instead of just sightseeing and go back home. To me that is the very essence of travelling.
With my old nine to five job, I was making more than enough money to cover all my passions in life. But was I living life to its fullest? No!
Looking back to my life, I realize that I either had time or money but never both. When I was a student, I had a lot of time but not much money. When I started working, I had more than enough money but not enough time.
There is always a trade off between time and money that is preventing me to live life to its fullest.
My Journey Online So Far…
Way back in 2009, I started to play Texas Holdem Poker online.
It took me a while to learn the game and train myself the necessary skills. But eventually I was able to make a little side money out of that.
However when I start to scale the game, the competition gets tougher and tougher. Not before long, I realized that this game is hard to scale.
It also requires a lot of time. To be able to make an actual living out of it, not only did I have to go through tons of training but I also had to play hours upon hours each day to realize that statistic edge from my skills.
Then in 2014, I dabbled into the financial market. I started trading in the Forex market.
It was a fun journey and I learnt a lot. Trading currencies was exciting. I would study, analyze and make my predictions.
There were ups and downs. But with my trained nerves from the poker games, I was able to stay calm and keep my A game. In the end it started to show some returns.
Unfortunately, with the system that I was trading, to make a salary like income, I would have to invest a large amount money and risk losing them all.
Finally in 2017, I ventured into affiliate marketing. And I finally found my place online.
There’s a lot of work in the beginning. I still had my nine to five job at the time. I would spend the evenings and weekends working on my blog. There was so much to learn.
What’s special about affiliate marketing is that once you put in the effort in the beginning, the reward just keep coming in the future.
It is very easy to scale. And this is truly a business model that can provide a salary like income with me working anywhere I want.
With affiliate marketing, I am able to:
- Have financial freedom
- Be location independent
- Travel anywhere I want, whenever I want
- Make money in my sleep
And the best part is that I didn’t have to invest large amount of money.
