    Hi everyone,

    About my business:

    While writing this I'm 28 years young, male and from the Netherlands.
    I've got 2 parttime dayjobs which gives me around 28 hours of work each week.
    Since 2010 I'm active in the internet marketing world and since 2012 I registered as a business.
    My business exists mainly of promoting affiliate products, which went really well in 2012, but crashed at the end of 2013.

    Since then I thought of making a youtubechannel around metal detecting which was inspired by a guy from the UK who did really well.
    I made a website where people could optin for some bonusvideos with tips and tricks to find more treasure and drove traffic through the youtubevideos i had made, which were very popular.
    Then I made a product with an Ebook, audiobook and more bonusvideos.

    I figured it was because of my target audience. I attracted lots of kids and 55+ on my vids and website.
    I decided to quit this website since it was too much work for no money.
    To produce one quality video I had to go outside for 10-12 hours, so not the way to go.

    In the meanwhile I've tested some different things like mediabuys and setting up microniche sites, which had some results, but the mediabuysresults were nothing to scale up and the niche sites got overrun by competition and i wasn't able to regain my page 1 rankings in google. I decided to give these sites up.

    Aside from my own business I've got a partner to do business with and we run a website in the health branche where we promote affiliate products as well. We both work on that once a week together.

    Bookkeeping is outsourced, so that gives me the time to do what matters most.

    About myself:

    Whatever I do I do it seriously and with passion. Always looking for ways to do better next time and take babysteps at the time towards success.

    In every aspect of life I try to maintain this attitude:

    • In sports
    • In lifestyle
    • In my own business
    • In my boss's business
    • In my relationships with friends, family and colleagues

    I love personal development and that's one of the reasons why I registered here, because there are lots of likeminded people I've seen.

    At this moment I need to get a clear picture of my road ahead to ignite my spark again and maintain focus in my business.

    I've read some journeys and got a lot of inspiration to go forward.

    Probably I'll start my own journey soon.

    Thanks for having me and good luck on your endeavors!
