I went on Ebay to sell United States Silver Proof sets from the United States Mint. That is where U.S. coin money is produced. In 1998, the Mint announced it was going to introduce a new special quarter series. Every year would have five states on quarters in the order they joined the union. They would be brought out in both proof and silver proof sets. Along with those coins that are produced for circulation. The first of the series was introduced in 1999. This program was intended to spark a renewed interest by the public to collect U.S. coin money. This is called numismatics. I decided to get in on this program. I was hoping to make some money and possibly end up with some free sets. I knew the Mint did not issue silver proof sets in large numbers. So, I invested in 80 silver proof sets and 20 proof sets when they were introduced in 1999. After that I bought 60 silver proof sets and 15 proof sets a year for the next 4 years. I HAD A PLAN. In 2004, I found out from a coin dealer that my first five years of silver proof sets had grown in value. Sets that cost me $175.00 ($35.00x 5 ) to put together were selling for $510.00- $550.00. I had PROFIT to maximize. This same dealer suggested I go on Ebay to sell my investment sets. Well, I didn’t have a computer. But, my brother who had a small manufacturing co. had three. He said I could use one on open times. I signed up with Ebay and started selling my sets. I started selling my sets. I had my first online business. I didn’t even own a computer and I was making money online!! My EYES were OPENED. There are billions of people online looking to buy . I decided then to explore the internet as a TOOL to make money. I HAD ANOTHER PLAN. SUCCESS BELONGS TO THOSE WHO PLAN FOR IT Back then, in 2005, I found you had to know some coding to be an affiliate marketer. I knew nothing about coding. I was in real estate since 1978. After some years of scraping by and some good years, a subdivision project I was a partner of finally sold out. I took what was my retirement and invested it in three two unit apts. buildings. So, going back to school for coding would have been difficult, time consuming, and costly. Things were going good with the apts., until 2007. In 2008, when the economy crashed, it got real bad. Some renters not only stopped paying the rent but upon eviction, they would trash the apt. This started eating my operating capital. It continued until I lost the last of the three in 2013. In 2009, I bought my first computer, a laptop. I wanted to lean about computers and explore affiliate money making. There other types of of programs to lure one in. I checked out some MLMs because they did not require coding. It soon became apparent that I was to recruit new people into the MLM program, without any mention of how to sell a product. I was to recruit other people to do that. I did find a couple of programs that said they would actually train me for affiliate marketing. What they taught was a lot except that you REALLY NEED A WEBSITE. They taught about sqeeze pages , landing pages and mini sites. Or, they made it seem more complicated than it is. Maybe it was information overload. THE JOB What I did get was a job in 2013. It was telemarketing for $9.00 an hour plus bonus and comm. I was selling business efficiency plans to small and midsized companies. I was making it. I had a couple of good sized sales, but I was laid off in March of 2015 . Then,I had to find another income. It was back to the laptop and searching for the best way to make money online. That is when I came across affiliate marketing again. The article mentioned Wealthy Affiliates and two free websites and free lessons , to try it out. I quickly checked and found it was TRUE !! I signed up for the free trial period. I found I liked it for more than the free trial and SOON became a premium member to take FULL advantage of ALL the other BENEFITS.

And not to mention, the programs that have one more product to buy to make sure the first one works ( upsells). I want you to know about a PROGRAM WITHOUT UPSELLS.
