Hey there! My name’s Dale Rodgers and I’m a 24 year old guy from England (I’m the creator of this blog).
Around 5 years ago I managed to make my first $1 online and that got me completely hooked on the concept of being able to make money from the internet.
I decided to create this blog to share my journey & show people how they too can leverage the internet to build themselves an extra income online. It’s actually easier than you might think.
I also set it up to help people avoid making the same mistakes I made, and to share the lessons I’ve learned to help them grow their incomes much more quickly, and much more sustainably.
Oh and not to mention to help people avoid wasting the sheer amount of money that I spent too when I was chasing “silver-bullet” systems that promised the world & delivered nothing.
How it all started
Back in 2011 I was working as an electrician on the steelworks. It was a pretty good job, and I was paid pretty well but come the end of each month I just never seemed to have much money left.
(that’s a photo of me below back in electrician days – yup glorious photo I know, as you can tell the steelworks was a pretty dirty place 😆 )
I was fed up of just “getting by”, and figured there had to be more to life than just waiting for the next pay day to roll around.
So one day I ended up tapping the phrase “how to make money online” into Google…
I’ll admit I didn’t really know what to expect or what I was actually looking for – I’d never ventured into making money online before and at the time I didn’t even really know if it possible… but decided it was worth looking into.
My initial goal was to be able to make a couple of hundred extra each month, and to be honest I even thought that small goal might have been a little optimistic.
But fast forward a year from that day & I had ended up making more from the internet than I was working full time as an electrician.
That’s when I said goodbye to my job.
To be honest I didn’t really enjoy working on the steelworks – it was a dirty, noisy & dangerous place.
It was somewhere I didn’t particularly want to spend the rest of my life, and after a few “near misses” as an electrician I wasn’t too sure that it was the right career for me at all.
I knew quitting my job was a risk, but it just felt right, and it felt like a risk I would regret not taking.
So I did just that… In 2012 I walked in on a Monday morning & told my boss that I would be handing in my resignation to pursue building my own online business.
I remember it well because he gave me the whole “you can’t make money on the internet” speech and tried to persuade me to stay, but that only spurred me on even more to prove him wrong.
I knew it was possible, and I was determined to do it.
And I did do it…
I’m not going to say it was all plain sailing, because it wasn’t – I made a lot of mistakes, wasted a lot of money & learned a lot of hard lessons.
However in July 2013, almost exactly a year after quitting my job I hit my first 5 figure month online, earning over $10,000 in just 30 days.
And since then I’ve gone on to earn over $20,000 in a single month, which is almost the same amount I’d have made working a whole year in my job as an electrician.
Now looking back if you’d told me in 2011 that I could have made 5 figures in a single month… from home… I would have probably laughed at you.
But I’ve come to realise just how powerful and limitless the internet is – it gives you instant access to millions of people, right at your fingertips.
Which is why for me I truly believe that a 5 figure month is still just the beginning.
