I’m writing this from a log cabin in Sherwood Forest.
I’m here with my family for a short break – lots of walking, some trekking then more walking. October is a good time to blow the cobwebs away.
I’ve just come back from sailing in Scotland (you can see the pics below this post somewhere)so found myself sitting in the woods before I’d had time to even lose my sea legs. Which is the whole point of me being an internet marketer.
My business is completely portable. The old laptop on the beach hype is actually true – I could work from anywhere in the world (and frequently do) but hadn’t thought of going into detail about it on my blog until my missus mentioned it would be a great way to show anyone who’s interested how an internet marketing lifestyle (and there are many – but this is the one for me) works.
I thought it might be of value to you if you’re thinking about going full-time as an internet marketer, even if you’re at the early stages (and we have something out soon that could help you go from early stages to ..well wherever you want to go), to see how I do things and how it fits in with family, kids, day to day life etc.
Many marketers would have you beleve it’s a huge leap from nine to five to five figures a month but it’s not. Not a lot of good me saying that without offering proof which is where I’m trying to go with my blog.
Back to the forest..
To be honest it’s a bit of a working holiday too – my wife has her own business, and has brought some with her and I have my wireless broadband modem with me which will pick up a signal in the weirdest of places and the forest is one of those.
It’s a slow connection here – worse than dial up but for checking emails and posting to a blog it’s not too bad – especially when accompanied by a glass of the red stuff and some good grub. That said I couldn’t pick up a signal in Scotland at all.
So we arrived here on Monday evening. On Tuesday evening I checked my email and found enough Paypal receipts to pay for our holiday. Twice over. So now I’m feeling smug because I’m on holiday for free. I’m only counting Paypal receipts because they’re insant. Clickbank payments take time to arrive although since they changed their payment system I’m about to get paid weekly from Clickbank which is good. Other affiliate payments arrive as and when their owners agree to pay me – usually monthly although weekly isn’t unheard of.
So the reason I can decide to leave it all behind and go live in Robin Hood style is that my income comes from lots of different places. I’ve mentioned before that I have internet marketing income streams outside Laycock Publishing, and it’s these combined with the Laycock business that means I receive money each and every day.
Anyway the point of this series of blogs is to get ‘up close and personal’ with you lot and to try to show you how my life, business and income work. …or don’t work 🙂
The pic above by the way is just before I actually started work.
I’d not yet plugged in the laptop, and my modem was still in it’s box but I had managed to open a bottle of wine and persuade my wife to take a snap of me to use on the blog.
Marketing is all about priorities…
