I have a habit of my mind jumping all around so hopefully I'm not all over the place.

I started doing affiliate marketing back in 07 or 08. I found out about this website called SourceKey from DatPiff. Found out most of the stuff they put up was copy/paste from IM bloggers. That's when I found out about WickedFire and that changed everything. I networked with a lot of people and really loved everything about marketing, well most of it. After some failed and some successful campaigns I eventually took it serious and registered an LLC for my company.

I never really got into SEO and focused mostly on PPC campaigns. I can get into further details but I'm sure everyone has heard about the same story. I did end up joining IMGrind at one point. I did enjoy doing lead gen and giving customers quality content and emailing new offers/opportunities instead of just selling the lead and be done with it. I also enjoyed this instead of doing some shady bizopp.

The only thing I did that was close to SEO was making blogs on a niche that I actually enjoyed. I remember writing a new blog post every day for like a year. I also developed a video website that was all customized, something similar to worldstar. But I found out it was hard to monetize a site like that.

Where did I fuck up? Well focusing on my company and working long hours I became less and less social and depression hit hard. My friend saw this and he gave me a perc 30 to "help" me get through my depression. By the way, I do not blame him. I made that decision and I could have said no. The worst/best decision I ever made. It was the worst because well I got addicted for 3 years, all my money was spent on 30s, and became even more miserable. The best because after I got clean it was the best feeling in the world. Getting your dopamine back and the pink cloud feeling is one of the best feelings I have ever felt. I became a better person, more out going, and I made so many new friends. Better friends, even. I try to look at it as a blessing in disguise. I just hit 2 years clean a couple months ago and it feels great.


I'm sure there are a lot of things I'm missing like doing mobile offers and what not. But I went on wickedfire and saw that place is no where near the place it used to be. I forget how I found this site but whoever is in charge, thank you. I do remember CCarter and having some chats with him back in the day, glad to see he's still killing it.

I'm looking to get back into running my own company again. I know I have to read up on a lot and have no idea where to start but I'm going to be reading a lot here while putting some stuff into action. I have a pretty good job and I love it but nothing beats the feeling of running your own business and hopefully in the future I can quit my job and focus on my business but that all depends on me. I plan on making a couple blogs again just to do something, anything, to get my feet wet while I read up. I forget a lot of stuff like tracking and which software is better now a days.

I feel like I wrote too much and I'm all over the place. Anyway, any suggestions are great and thanks for making this forum.
