Hello, and welcome to Online Baby Boomer, my name is Leona, and I am so glad you stopped by. Being an affiliate is something that has been a burning desire within me for more years that I’d like to admit! As you may have guessed by the name of my website, I AM A BABY BOOMER! And an introvert, at that.
A BIT ABOUT MY JOURNEY SO FAR
So, about 10 years ago, I really got hooked on the Internet, and the “make money online” bug hit me, and hit me hard! Finding a program that would educate me was a different story, however. I knew absolutely nothing about Affiliate Marketing, I merely knew that it was a good source of income for so many online, why not me? So I began to search.
Now, the typical “wow, I finally made it online” or “making a living as an affiliate marketer” claims are easy enough to find with a short Google search. So, this is a bit different. This is a bit of a work in progress, for just last year, 2019, I “stumbled” across My Online Startup, as it was in its revamping mode. It seems that when the student is ready, the teacher does appear!
Yet, this student recently turned 60 years old! Could I really expect to break into the affiliate marketing niche and make a great income from anywhere in the world, with my trusty Mac? I determined to find out. So as I had signed up to so many programs in the past, this one was different, I thought. The mentoring and sense of community here is stellar, for this young to marketing online is really wet behind the ears. The teachers, some of them, are younger than my offspring! Yet, they don’t make me feel old.
The Why Behind This Site
As I said, I had been researching Affiliate Marketing for years, and to be truthful, my searching and researching was selfish. I wanted to learn online marketing for personal reasons. Making me financially independent. And yet, over this past year, I did a lot of real deep self reflection [turning 60 can do that to a gal]. And I realized, if I feel a need to “make it” online, what about other Baby Boomers? Do they, also, want a program, a way to supplement their income? Do they want something that will keep them engaged with the online world, and put money in their pockets? Are they, like me, searching for something so well laid out that even we seniors can do it?
So my desire for personal wealth creation online changed to a desire to show other seniors [introverted seniors or not] that wealth creation online is doable. And anyone else for that matter, doesn’t have to be a senior. Step by step, I plan to document my successes and setbacks. My struggles and breakthroughs. And if it can help others navigate the Affiliate Marketing Niche, and utilize My Online Startup [and the free training, if they want to be a member], then that’s a reward I will gladly accept.
My Mission With onlinebabyboomer.com
And so, as I said, I am documenting my Online marketing journey here. To help other Baby Boomers navigate a seemingly massive, sometimes over powering, affiliate income generating platform. Sometimes frustrating, as I have to go over and over some simple teaching that a 30-year old would just know. Yet, all the time, empowering, freeing, and a mentor is just a quick personal message question away.
Join me on my Online Baby Boomer journey here, as I document what it takes for me to become what I had been searching to become for over 10 years. A successful online marketer.
