My name is Michael W Smith Jr. I am an average person just like you, who wanted more out of my life than what I was experiencing. I spent most of my career as a Financial Services Representative. I spoke to people all over the United States about investments and personal risk management.
I educated, informed and really took a very consultative approach to my business. I, however, became very burned out. It was to the point where I got physically felt ill every time I went to work.
I was depressed and had aged dramatically from the level of stress that I experienced on a day to day basis. I finally had it. My health was really being affected. My blood pressure was to the point where I was taking three medications just to maintain control.
I saw the writing on the wall. A 401k that was woefully inadequate and a declining state of health that would lead me to an early grave. The promise of moving up the corporate ladder was starting to look like a death sentence. I knew I had to do something different.
I knew that the work till you die lie that I was being fed was not the life that I wanted.
I started looking online for another way to make money from home. I wanted to do something new. I wanted a challenge that I could continue to do and enjoy for the rest of my life.
I didn’t want a get rich quick scheme. I wanted something I could really sink my teeth into that I could do even during retirement.
Unfortunately, when I was in college there was no such thing as digital media or social media marketing. There were no classes I could take about affiliate marketing. That didn’t stop me though. I went online and searched.
I have spent thousands and probably will spend thousands more because content marketing is an ever evolving animal. The good thing is you don’t have to.
