Time has come, here is my "success story"
Ok, so since everybody is writing success stories, I thought, why the hell not, I should write my own!
Even though I'm sure it may not help anybody as I'm not much of a personal writer, here it goes:
My actual passion with everything online began in 1999 when I first discovered the Internet. I was 11.
Had a computer since I was like 8 so I wasn't really a stranger to technology, I just needed the internet connection to be complete.
At that time the most popular way of online communication was IRC. Anyways, IRC had lots of servers, channels and all kind of things that may seem strange to today's Facebook user. But let me tell you, IRC was the original "social network", much more complex and cool that Facebook will be. But enough of IRC, let's just say I learned a lot spending my time there, about the internet, about websites and about people online.
Created my first blog back in 2004 or so, didn't realize how much 500 unique visits per day actually meant and I closed the blog as soon as I started getting my first negative comments.
Reinvented myself soon enough and by 2006-2007 I had a couple of blogs, one of which had PR4, made my first profit online by selling links, banners and advertorials on that blog. Having that "taste" of making money on the internet got me hooked.
After a failed attempted as a scammer, I came to the conclusion that hard honest work is better and I'll sleep much better at night.
So I started freelancing on Digital Point!
At first, I didn't make much, only some pocket money for parties and stuff like that, I was a student now and I didn't want to ask my parents for party money.
Anyways, eventually, I started getting some positive reputation and a portfolio of clients. I continue creating websites and blogs, trying the flipping business and selling more and more links.
Don't know exactly when but probably like 7 years ago I landed Jordan as a client and started to freelance for him on and off for years until he founded SEOclerks and I started getting so much clients I made freelancing a full-time job.
After 3 years as a freelance I manage to achieve some of my dreams but I also tired of working from home. So I decided to follow my real career in maritime engineering. Spent another 2-3 years doing that before returning to my old love (SEO) and of course freelancing. This time part-time.
I love the online services arena.
I love SEO.
And I love freelancing.
I'm here to stay and I probably won't switch professions anytime soon!
