Hey, and welcome to my website, “An Affiliate’s Dream.” For the past several years, Affiliate Marketing has always fascinated me. I guess mainly because I could be my own boss and I would only have to answer to myself if I made a mistake. In addition, I could work in the comfort of my own home and make great money doing it.


My Story

As a boy growing up on a farm in the deep South, I saw myself wanting more in life. My dad was career Army and my mom was a stay-at-home mom. Although he was career Army, he stayed at Ft. Rucker, Alabama, 18 of his 23 years and we only moved once when he got orders to Ft. Bliss, Texas. My mom and dad were both from Enterprise, Alabama, so this was home to us.

Growing up, I hated Enterprise and I desperately wanted to leave. After graduating from high school, I went off to college and when I graduated, I landed a job with a Defense Contractor located at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida. After 3 1/2 years, I grew tired and joined the U.S. Army. It wasn’t because my dad made a career of it, even though he was extremely proud of me. I wanted to travel and see the world at the government’s expense and be paid for it at the same time.

Army Days

After joining the Army, I went to basic training and Advanced Individual Training (AIT). I decided to sign up for Jump School. So after I graduated from AIT, I headed off to Ft. Benning, Georgia, for Jump School. After Jump School and being brainwashed for 8 – 10 weeks, I decided to go to Ranger School.

I had been in the Army for almost 7 years when my unit got called up to

Army Ranger

deploy for Desert Storm. On my last parachute jump, I was severely injured and late had to go through 14 different surgeries as a result. After receiving a medical discharge, things were terrible. The Army basically turned their back on me and the Department of Veterans Affairs was slow to give me my disability compensation.

It took a long time for the Department of the Army and the Department of Veterans Affairs to get my paperwork right and as a result, I lost everything. With no income coming in and not being able to work, bankruptcy was the only option.  This made me feel less than a man.  I couldn’t feed my family nor pay my bills.  Although I am proud I served my country, they turned their back on me.  And sometimes I still feel this way.

I finally started receiving my compensation each month, but as many veterans know, it’s not enough to keep a roof over your head plus cover all of your living and household expenses.

I started reading everything about internet marketing and I took every video training course on internet marketing and affiliate marketing I could.  Soon I had a good grasp on both concepts and I began saving what money I could to purchase a laptop and a few other things for my business.  I already had cable TV going to my house, so I called up the cable company and discussed with them the different internet packages they offered.

The Purpose of “An Affiliate’s Dream”

My website, “An Affiliate’s Dream,” I hope, will help veterans, disabled veterans (like myself), soldiers, their spouses as well as others, to earn a great income for themselves and their families through Affiliate Marketing. It will also help him/her start their own business with very little upfront costs so they won’t be dependent on the government for handouts. Veterans have served their country well and they should hold their heads up high because many are not looking for a handout.

But if a veteran, whether disabled or not, doesn’t have a job, how can he/she put a roof over his/her family’s head, put food on the table, or clothe his/her children.  Many veterans, as well as disabled veterans, are released from active duty without a job to go to and many times are dependent on his or her family for support.  The governments mandated unemployment compensation only last for so long.

Affiliate Marketing Can Make Dreams Come True

How would you like to have your very own money making website(s) and be your own boss?  With only a computer and an internet connection, and very little money upfront as well as a lot of time and energy, veterans, disabled veterans, and military spouses can achieve their goals and become financially independent for themselves and their families. But as with anything that you want to succeed in, it takes time and a lot of hard work because it doesn’t happen overnight.  I am tired of seeing veterans and disabled veterans scraping by and some go homeless because they have no income coming in.

If I can be any help to you who are reading this about me and my mission to help fellow veterans and disabled veterans succeed with their own business, feel free to leave a comment below and I will get back with you as soon as possible.  Thank you.
