Time to Start Some Afilliate Marketing

Ever since I was a little boy I dreamt of being a millionaire. I went to school with a lot of kids that were heirs to the Dow Chemical fortunes and I was envious. I resigned myself to being a working stiff and actually worked at Dow for awhile.

Then I got the idea to get married and have a child while going to Nursing School. It wasn't bad. I was getting about 4 hours sleep a night. Fell asleep in my books more times than I wanted to count. Worked at Mickey D's to put myself through school.

Long story short I ended up 35 years later, worn down and tired out. Nursing didn't suck the life out of me, I just had a harder time keeping up. Not so much with the physical work as with all of the changes that have taken place over the last 35 years. Boy, have we come a long way and that is a long story for another time.

The travel nursing was great for me because at the stage of burnout I was at it was enough to work 13 weeks and then take some time off. I usually did pretty good for awhile but started to get a little out of hand my last couple of weeks. As a traveler it was sometimes difficult for me to remember to keep my mouth shut and just do my job. Especially as an OR Nurse. They all seem to be a pretty mouthy and opinionated group.

I just got an earning statement for Social Security that told me what I would have as an income if I took early retirement, on time retirement or work until I am 70. No way is the last one gonna happen if I stay in Nursing. I did do some math and discovered that over the years working in the medical that I had earned over a million dollars! But I am not a millionaire. I am a long way fromthat goal. I began to get a plan together last year that would keep me at home and work smarter not harder. If I could develope multiple streams of income from the Internet I could create some serious wealth.

I guess as a kid I just thought that the money would be dumped in my lap if I acted deserving enough. While I was an active nurse I never thought about the day when I could not do the job any longer and how I was to support myself . In other words I did not have a B plan. I am working on one now and believe me I do not want to have to go back to the travel nurse gig again. I am behind in so many things, BCLS and so on. I don't have a dress code today and I don't have the alarm clock anymore rudely waking me up when I did not want to get out of bed.

So affiliate marketing is the way I am going. Hence the reason for the banner here.
