How Affiliate Marketing Helped Me After Bankruptcy and Could Maybe Help You Too

Redundancy and bankruptcy Changed my life and now I am living it totally different. My outlook has changed and I want to help others do the same.

I have always been a hard working sole right back to when I left school, yes that’s right i didn’t work hard at school. I found myself working multiple jobs over the years and indeed many many hours.

Well the reason I am here starts back eleven years now. I started working for a company where I live. My job title was a Chemical Engineer. This was great and I started earning some fab money as I wouldn’t leave the boss more than six months before I was on his case for a rise again. However I had this urge to do my own thing, be my own boss, line my own pocket and answer to nobody but me.

I was with this company for ten years but two years into it I started a website course which cost me £3,750. Yeah I now bloody crazy. However I was determined and I made a go of this. Things went great. While I was still working my chemical job I was setting up my own internet advertising business.

The money was getting really good now and I then met my partner and we started a family. Wow. Things are just how I want them. This is what I always imagined my life would be like. We also started a network marketing business together and I invested in a bouncy castle company which made me more good money over the weekends.

I could easily say I was flying. I had property which I rented out. I had a fantastic car which did everything you could imagine and really went some. It was a 407 coupe 3ltr V6 twin turbo GT. It was voice recognition. I even had a sim in the dash and could just ask it to call peeps from my address book. I do miss that car. But I will be purchasing it again and I’m sure you will hear all about it when i do.

So what happened?

Well back in mid 2007 my chemical job announced some redundancy’s. Well I’m safe I thought. Oh no I wasn’t. My £500 a week take home came to an end. Then within two weeks of this happening my Internet company plummeted downwards. I couldn’t explain it really except it was like I had a tap running all that time and somebody had just turned it off. So after loosing my chemical job and then my internet company everything else followed. I went from taking home about £3k – £4k a month to a couple hundred. Everything I had built up had to go bit by bit. I tried all sorts to hang onto things but nothing worked for me. I was falling apart and couldn’t stop.

This led me down the path of bankruptcy early 2008. I felt so low and for a short while but quickly got my head back into action. What helped me through this besides the love of my family is positive reading. You see, I am a firm believer in making your own path in life. I Have a DVD and book on something called the secret. If you haven’t already seen this then you must give it look. You never know it might help you as it did me.

I focused on ways to get back on my feet again. So already being involved in the internet it made perfect sense to look for something I could do on there. This is where I am now really. I have started earning money with affiliate programs and indeed found this corker of an opportunity.

I am now already living back in a large private house and managed four holidays with the kids last year. This is all down to positive thinking. You see, if you continue to think or say you cant do something you cant because you are excepting and programming it that way. If you continue to look up and say you can and you will find a way, you condition yourself to action.

This is Bah Blah to some people but I am living proof. Had I sat back and dwelled after my bankruptcy none of the above would have happened. Anyway I am not hear to preach, this is just my story.

Since I have taken action and now work from home with an online business, I have been helping others in a similar situation to mine.
