Hello and thanks for stopping by. My name is Vince, and this site is the result of a passion that has been growing over the last ten years or so.
At around 50 years of age (I won’t give you the exact number!), I’m older than most internet marketers out there, but I don’t let that stop me.
In fact, I see my age mostly as an advantage.
After all, I have such a different set of experiences than many other people in this field.
Why Affiliate Marketing?
The internet has always fascinated me, because it has the power to reach such a large number of people.
But, that wasn’t what got me interested in the idea of making money online.
It was the economy.
We’ve really been going through some hard times with the economy.
Even though the job market has improved, many of the jobs available are lower paid service positions (or similar roles).
At the same time, there are few cost of living and performance based raises in the workforce.
Essentially, it has become so much harder to get good paying jobs and there is an ever-present worry about downsizing and corporate layoffs – which can affect many positions.
At the end of the day, you cannot rely on a career to last a lifetime.
And, you have to be prepared to be suddenly thrust back into unemployment.
To me, it seems that the price of traditional employment is simply too high and there are no signs that things are improving.
Not only was I concerned about the economy, but I was also experiencing issues with my own field of employment.
I work within food service management, and have a strong passion for food and nutrition.
But, food service management is all about meeting the bottom line.
Finding good jobs in the industry is also extremely difficult and over time I’ve just become more and more disillusioned.
Because of those issues, I started researching ways to make money online.
Like many others, I came across a fair number of scams along the way.
There are so many places that promote these glowing opportunities, but actually give you nothing of the sort.
I got lucky though, because I stumbled onto the idea of affiliate marketing fairly early.
This approach to business fascinated me.
For one thing, there really was a clear pathway to earning money.
The approach also felt legitimate. Affiliate marketers aren’t trying to trick any system and most of them are very open about their affiliate links.
That appealed to me, because any approach has to be legitimate, or it simply won’t work in the long-term.
Without a doubt...
Making money online is hard work.
Anyone who says it isn’t is a liar.
It’s a field where you have to plan and work hard, particularly when you first get started.
But, at the same time, it really can pay off.
As I researched into affiliate marketing, I came across Wealthy Affiliate.
The program was one that other people recommended and I was pretty skeptical at first.
But, I can honestly say that Wealthy Affiliate is what gave me my start in this field, and the site still keeps me on track.
I personally love the training that the site offers, as well as the social connection.
It’s great to be able to get feedback on a site when you make it, rather than doing something and hoping you are doing it right.
Why Don’t Get Rich Quick?
This blog is all about creating an online income the right way.
I want to show you that there are opportunities beyond the traditional 9-5 jobs – and there are approaches out there that actually work.
This blog works well for people who are wanting to create an online business but don’t know what’s involved or how to avoid the scams.
Likewise, it is good for those who are already involved in online business, as I present a wide range of training, case studies and information.
Some of that is targeted towards new people in the field, but much of the training in this site is also very relevant for people who are more experienced.
I am on a daily search to find out more about online business and effective approaches – and anything that I learn I pass onto readers through blog posts and through email.
So, if you are looking for value added internet marketing research and training, without pressure, fluff or hype, Don’t Get Rich Quick should be your destination.
There will never be hype, exaggerated claims here at Don’t Get Rich Quick, quite the opposite.
My mission is to help you create an online income the right way while being a resource you can count on.
I can help you succeed. I would very much like to work with you to help you achieve your online goals.
If you have any questions, please email me and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
My Current Directions
I admit, I’m still relatively new at internet marketing.
I joined Wealthy Affiliate around 2.5 years ago, but I took my time in learning everything I needed to know.
I didn’t launch my first site until I was confident in myself and in the field.
Now, I have two sites that I work on.
This site is all about me giving back to others.
I might still work a normal job, but already affiliate marketing has made big impacts on my life, and I’m passionate to see what happens next.
Through this site, I hope to teach others about affiliate marketing and show them the potential of this field.
I want this site to be much more than just a review site.
Instead, I want it to be a database of knowledge that can help people regardless of where they are in their internet marketing journey.
I also work on a site called Nutrition You Can Use.
That site strongly taps into my passion for nutrition and lets me spend time researching and learning more about the healthiest ways to eat.
I enjoy both sites, even though they are very different from one another.
I appreciate you taking the time to read my stories.
I hope you stay with me for the journey.
