Is it Possible to Make Money Online to be able to Quit our Jobs?
Yes, I did it and if you are willing to put some effort and some skills to make an online business work. You do not need to be an expert but there are some skills you need to learn. If I can do it, you can do it also.
Owner of this Website.
My name is Belden and I have been doing affiliate marketing for more than three years now and I am running multiple websites as well as a couple of offline businesses.
When I started, I thought I would never learn plus my job as an aircraft mechanic prevented me from having time for my online lessons.
I persevered, and utilized any free time for my online lessons, even at work.
Here I am now, I finally shook my employee mindset and enjoying the freedom as as entrepreneur, both online and offline.
I quit my high paying job in aviation last March, 2018 and I never looked back.
Without the skills I learned online on how to be an entrepreneur, I would still be wrenching airplanes today.
I did not hate my job, as I actually love it, but being away from my family is something else.
So be with me with this long article if you want to escape that trap you are in.
Yes, you read it right. A lot of people become so comfortable with their jobs that they forgot to invest and think ahead.
Your income, no matter how high it is at the moment will level with your expenses sooner than you would realize?
Inflation and your wants which become your needs will always catch up and will eat up your income.
I am afraid you are one of those people that's why you need something to change the situation you are in.
Can you Do Something about it?
Yes, but you have to shake that employee mindset first. A lot of people failed because they count the hours they have put in their business as per their hourly wage.
That's not the way a business should be run. Do not trade your time with money, but trade your time with investments that will pay more in the long run.
Now, if you are still interested let's move on and talk more about this business.

Reason #1 The Successful Wealthy Affiliate Members
Are You Going to Become Successful just by Joining Wealthy Affiliate?
No. Sorry to burst your bubble because Wealthy Affiliate is a service to educate people how to set up and run an online business properly.
It does not or will not promise you success just by joining. All the training and the resources are provided just to guide you to attain that success, but it is going to be you to make that happen.
The members that became successful did not join Wealthy Affiliate just to try“something new” but they have the vision to make it happen, and they did what it takes.

The field is almost level between those who have a lot of money to invest and those who have a little money to invest. This business is skill based which can be learned by anybody.
The Las Vegas Super Affiliate Conference
Wealthy Affiliate has an annual Super Affiliate Conference held in Las Vegas, Nevada every year. It is an all-expense paid conference with all the luxurious amenities. Everything is first class, and you stay in a suite in a five-star hotel.
The guys that are invited are those who made 300 sales for the year. A sale will give $23.50 recurring monthly commission per referral, and that is $7050 per month recurring commissions. How about the guys who went there every year.
If we just count five years that’s 1500 referrals and let’s just say half of them left WA, that is still at least $15,000 a month from Wealthy Affiliate alone, not counting the other affiliate programs he is enrolled.
Starting September, it only requires 100 sales up to December. These are guys who made it. Check this out!
Self Made Millionaire
Dom is not into Affiliate Marketing anymore as he owns Human Proof Designs. He is selling pre-made websites and website contents for those affiliates wanting to jump-start their online quest.
He has about 100 online employees, and it is run by his management team.
It shows that you do not have to promote Wealthy Affiliate to be successful in your business. You will get all the training and support to start and run any online business.
He is a very cool guy, he did not leave Wealthy Affiliate, and you can still read his blogs to inspire new members. If you are lucky, you can even find him on LiveChat giving bits of advice and answering questions.
That’s the beauty of Wealthy Affiliate as sometimes you brush shoulders with millionaires.

Another Guy Who Made It to Vegas
Another Vegas Regular.
Consistent Monetary Success
This is not part of the success stories above, but I just want to point out that this program works. I am still working forty hours per week, and sometimes we have to do 60 hours per week as an Aircraft Mechanic on a major airline.
I did not have much time to work on my websites, but I have been earning money monthly starting from 25 days of joining Wealthy Affiliate.
At six months I made $272.50 a month, and I know it is peanuts, but it shows that if I could just put more time on this, I could scale up.
I have also started to get commissions from eBay, Amazon, and JamPlay (online guitar lessons website) and enrolled in affiliate programs like Aweber, iWriter, Hantug Guitars of Turkey, Shopify, Jaaxy, and SEMrush.
The main reason my website is called Quit That Day Job is because I have a vision that I can quit my day job very soon through online marketing.
I am now seeing a clearer path to achieve that and enjoy what I have invested after long years of employment. Don’t you think it is time to learn the skills and ditch that 9-5?
The answers are here, and it is up to you to utilize that information. There is a joke among internet marketers that says ” Intentions are not ranked in Google, only actions” and this is my guide going forward.
So what is it going to be, are you going to keep those good intentions until it dries up or you want to do something to change your life? The choice is yours!
