From Unemployed to Earning Income on the Internet

January 27, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 114

Are you like myself; tired of working for someone else? If you are looking to improve your standard of living, have a few hours a week, then you can learn how to become successful. I am 54yo. In 2010 I had to have heart surgery (6 bypasses). I never knew I had any heart problems. The road to recovery was a tough one physically and mentally. My dedication to my work as a Project Manager in the "wonderful" corporate world drove me to return to work after only two months. It was a challenge to return to work at full speed, but I was loyal, hard-working, and good at what I do so I just knew the company "needed me." I can't say that I didn't struggle, more mentally trying to keep the pace but had the confidence that my "team" and employer would work with me until I got back in my "groove".

Well, on April 1, 2011 (An April Fool's Day Friday) I got those nice words of condolences from the local plant manager about how he hated to be the one to tell me, and how sorry he was to have to let me know that as of that moment I was unemployed due to one of those corporate downsizing plans after 14 years of hard work (And the long hours that come with it). I was devastated. I had been with the company since start up, always had great reviews, and always completed projects on time. I worked hard to help others, developing over 300 new products and getting them launched. I thought I would retire from there one day. I was handed a severance package, cleaned out my office, and headed back out into the world to begin looking for a new job. Since that time, almost nine months ago I have lost my home, depleted my savings, even my 401K. I have had to pay COBRA premiums so that I and my 17yo son could have insurance. I also had to pay child support, and struggle to pay my bills. The mental stress has been as much of a challenge. The heart surgery, loss of my job, loss of my home, my age of 54, and not being able to provide the things I would like to for my son have truly taken a toll on my state of mind and health.

After months of resumes being sent out, and working hard to obtain interviews only to hear the words "You are really over qualified for this position" on EVERY interview, I had become very depressed and down on myself. I just wanted to give up. My fiance' and I split up and I was once again feeling all alone and not sure what would happen to me. I have come across many of those "work from home and get rich" opportunities (being nice) and researched many, only to find that the old saying of "If you want to make money, you got to have money". I spent (wasted) several hundreds of dollars, only to be disappointed.

I am now working my way now to earning money on the internet. With a very nominal investment, I have my own website now, and am working to build this site to a level of income that will finally bring me financial piece of mind. Through affiliate marketing I am slowly learning how to be able to earn income just from getting "hits" on articles that I publish. Whether I write them, or for a small fee have them written for me, this is a great way to begin financial growth. If you are ready to take a first step, stay focused on what you want, willing to spend some time on your computer, you can jump on the train too. You don't need a lot of web experience, you don't need to be a salesperson, and you just have to be dedicated to truly wanting to earn income, in an ethical and honest way.
