Hello there, my name is Gabriel and I am 27 years old. I am an average Joe, without any particular skills or education. Like many others I grew up being the son of a single father, that was breaking his back to earn his living to support us. Sweat, hard work and tears was what was taught to me that is needed in order to make a living in this world. So my education stopped in highschool, without any honor or glory. Since I had the chance to move out I jumped from an occupation to another one, putting a lot of effort and sweat, trying to make a decent living. I always had no fear of people's judgement so I did every job was available. Bouncer, driver, handyman, kitchen utility, salesman, you name it, you got it: I am a jack of all trades. This may sound fancy, but it resulted in this: I am a master of nothing. My resumée is a patchwork of many experiences and without a college degree I will always be a second banana. Not educated, not skilled, not experienced enough, I am the nightmare of every employer. Last year after thousands of emails, phone calls and job interviews I landed in what I thought was the job of my life. I was hired by a big european corporation as apprentice bookkeeper. Their apprenticeship program was tailored to teach me accounting and the appropriate computer skills to become a book keeper in 6 months. This program also guaranteed me a 6 months contract with one of the nation's top paid salaries. The apprenticeship program naively boosted my confidence in thinking that I could get a permanent contract in that company. My hopes were raised up many times by my bosses while I was getting good performance evaluations and crunching long hours. One day, few months ago, I received a letter from human resources that stated that in two weeks I had to remove all my personal belongings from my cubicle and go home. That letter didn't take away just my job, but it put me in a difficult situation. I found myself with a rent to pay, bills to pay, a girlfriend to support fully because she doesn't have the right to work in my country. I started to spread my resumee out like if it was a plague. I phoned everyone I know, email everybody, filled every application form I could get my hands on it but it didn't work. It is so sad to see how people turn so easily their back on you. Friends I knew for decades, colleagues that I helped many times, even members of my own family made themselves unreachable. After a while, one of my worst nightmares became true: I was low on funds. I still have to pay for rent, bills, insurance, groceries, fuel and medical expenses and no income. No money is coming in my wallet. I remember I was sitting in my couch, with a notebook in front of me. “Lawn mowing, painting, pizza delivery, home improvement” these were the words written on the notebook. Suddenly something sounded really wrong. I was behaving exactly how I was taught by my father, I was repeating the same behaviour that led me there again and again. I remember a quote from Henry Ford I read during my apprenticeship, “If you do what you always did, you will get what you always got”. I didn't want for sure find myself in this situation again, because psychologically is really hard, so I started researching. I was sure I was doing something really wrong. I researched a lot on the topic make money and I stumbled upon Internet Marketing. I admit I am not too bright, it just never came into my mind. I never thought that there was a such huge market online and, judging from many sources it takes a broad knowledge of many subjects to succeed in this business. I do not feel comfortable with the idea that anyone can do it, but the results I saw from many people inspired me. I do not believe there are single individuals that can make millions from this industry. I am not saying that it is impossible, but I think it takes a huge amount of people, resources and time to reach that level that many experts are claiming. On the other hand I saw many post of people that are making several thousands of dollars per year. I think that's a more realistic thought and this led me to think that if these people are real, they are human beings as I am, I can also reach their level and make that kind of money they are making. This all sounds great but I still have to face the reality that I am 27, without a job, bills to pay and a future wife to support. My funds are running out as we speak and I am practically making a bet on me becoming wealthy using something that some people think that is a scam or just impossible. I am still looking for part time jobs, I need to have even a small steady income, but I want to use the extra time to develop a sustainable business. Many of you will think I am stupid, crazy or I am not thinking straight. I would like to hear your opinion, learn from all of you that are experienced in this field and develop what I really wanted my all life. Thank you for the time you spent to read these words, I really appreciate it. Have a nice day/afternoon/evening, wherever you are. Gabriel S.
