Hey, I'm Kirk.
I'm a 18 wheeler truck driver & an Entrepreneur.
Today, I want to share with you a very simple 4-Step Formula that I've discovered while I was in my truck.
This Simple 4-Step Formula has allowed me to make some really good side income apart from my driving job.
In fact, this side income is turning myself from a full-time driver to a part-time driver.
I no longer have to work as hard to make the same amount of money.
As you can see, unlike other "GURUs" out there, I'm not here to show off to you flashy cars and luxurious life. (Who knows if those cars are theirs for real or they rented/borrowed it, right?)
Instead, I want to show you "behind-the-scene" of my journey of making money online because I believe that's way more important than those flashy cars, mansions, etc, right?
So, let me give you a little background of myself...
I have been driving an 18 wheeler over the road for close to 20 years now.
What attracted me to driving over the road was the opportunity to see and travel a lot of the country I had never seen before.
At the same time, driving also give me the freedom to "kind of" be my own boss.
As long as I made my pickups and deliveries on time I could run on my own time schedule and not have to answer to anyone on an hourly or even daily basis much of the time.
For me, that's pretty good enough for many years. But to be honest, I'm still an employee, trading my precious time for money.
Another good thing about driving over the road is you do have a lot of down times between loads, bad weather and many other factors.
So, sometime around 2012 I seen a post from one of my friends about an opportunity to make money online.
Long story short I joined this program and my Make Money Online (MMO) journey began.
But! That's when the DISASTERS began...
PROBLEM #1: Unlike the youngsters, I'm not technically inclined
PROBLEM #2: When I started the see some results, that f**king program shut down! So I had to start all over again...
PROBLEM #3: I fell into the "Shiny Object Syndrome" and lost a good chunk of money because I joined a cryptocurrency program which ended up shutting down AGAIN!!
Let me ask you...
If you were me, having experienced so many failures, what would you do?
Give up? And get back to trading time for money?
If I gave up at this point, all the time and money were definitely wasted.
Long story short, I persist through and eventually found a platform called Wealthy Affiliate.
Wealthy Affiliate is hands down the best platform I could ever ask for...
Wealthy Affiliate is like no others.
While other companies/programs are adding more and more upsells and selling more high-ticket products to make money, Wealthy Affiliate has no upsells at all.
However, since I had so many bad experiences in the past, I was still pretty skeptical.
But when I saw my first commission from Wealthy Affiliate, all the doubts went away...
This gave me even more motivation to work hard and make this work.
So I kept on working and my side hustle just kept growing.
Like I've shown you in the beginning, in December 2018, I made $1.7K, which is a pretty good side income, right?
And you want to know the best part of this business?
Best Part of This Business is...
I have full control for my business!
Remember I had to start all over again because the previous program I joined shut down?
That's the case because my business was relying on another platform.
But this time, I own my own website which is my own business and nobody can take that away from me.
Touch wood, if Wealthy Affiliate shut down (which is almost impossible), I still have full control for my business because I'm not relying on Wealthy Affiliate.
I'm just learning and leveraging Wealthy Affiliate to build my OWN business.
See the difference?

So, Here's the 4 Simple Steps!
Thanks for taking the time reading my story. I value your time and really appreciate that.
So without further ado, let's get to the 4 Simple Steps of Making Real Money Online I was talking about...
STEP 1: Choose an Interest
The beauty of an online business is that you can literally make money from your own interests & passion.
For example, if you like football, you can make a full-time income by promoting football related products (by the way, you don't have to create or own any of the products you sell).
So, start by picking one of your interest or hobby to start your online business. I repeat, literally any interest can be monetized in one way or another. (I'll prove to you in just a second so stay with me!)
STEP 2: Build a Website
Just like you need a store for your brick-and-mortar business, you'll need a website for you to generate sales online.
So after you've chosen an interest, you need to build a website based on your interest. That particular interest you've chosen will be the main topic of your site (that's what we called a "niche").
But DON'T worry! You don't have to know coding & programming at all. Thanks to Wealthy Affiliate, you'll be able to create a website from scratch within minutes without touching a single line of code.
STEP 3: Attract Visitors
We need customers in order to generate sales and revenue. So for us to make money with our website, we need to attract visitors to our website (and that's what we called "traffic").
The keyword here is "ATTRACT". You don't have to go out there to chase after your prospects or do any cold callings. Neither do you have to approach your friends and family.
By learning this one skill called "Search Engine Optimization (SEO)", you'll be able to attract unlimited visitors to your website consistently day after day. And the best part is that it's completely FREE. You don't have to spend any money on things like Facebook ads or any other ads.
STEP 4: Earn Revenue
Once there are visitors coming to your website consistently, the way you make money is by recommending your visitors relevant products and solutions for their problems.
Your website content will do the rest of the selling process for you. A huge advantage of having a website is that your website can work for you 24/7 even when you sleep or do other stuff.
That's how you generate passive income. Imagine if you make traditional sales, you can only make money while you're awake and actively selling your products to other people.
By the way, you don't have to Create or Own any of the products you sell on your website...
Because we are doing "Affiliate Marketing".
So, in one simple sentence...
Affiliate Marketing is the process of earning commissions by promoting other people's products.
If this is your first time hearing such business model, you may ask..."How is that possible?"
Let me give you an example...
A Simple American Football Website that Generates a Full-Time Passive Income
Let's say you're an American football lover. What would you do? And what are the things you own?
You'll definitely watch the games that your favorite team plays and you'll most likely own a couple of their goodies like a team jersey, mug, or a helmet.
Do you know that's more than enough for you to make a full-time living online?
Yes, I'm not kidding!
Jay, the Live Training Coach inside Wealthy Affiliate, did this LIVE Niche Case Study Anthology some time back.
Here's what he did...
- 1He found an interesting product on Amazon called "Football Snack Helmet"
- 2He did some research and found potential for this particular product
- 3He created a website called FootballSnackHelmets.com
- 4He grabbed the product details from Amazon to his website
- 5He wrote some content on his site to share this interesting product
- 6He inserted his own Amazon affiliate links
- 7And he made money!
He made $400 by the end of the first month and this website is now generating a couple of thousand dollars for him every single month.
Now, let me be completely honest and transparent with you. We all know he is THE Live Training Coach in Wealthy Affiliate. So he has been doing this for many years and he is an expert in this field. That's how he started generating income from the very first month from this mini niche site.
Obviously, it's quite unlikely to start making $400 on your first month because there are things you need to learn which takes time.
I just want to prove you that earning a full-time passive income online from your own interest is totally possible and doable.
You may not be able to get it right in the first month or two. But if you give yourself enough time, you'll see yourself getting closer and closer to the kind of income and lifestyle you've always dreamed of.

Don't Just Take My Words for it
21-year-old Full-Time Affiliate Marketer
“No matter how archaic it sounds, Wealthy Affiliate has literally changed my life. At 20 years old, I dropped out from College and I was working as a part-time restaurant server. I hated the job but I still need the money to survive. So was working online with Wealthy Affiliate at the same time trying to build up my passive income.
It's definitely not an easy journey but I persevered for months. Right now I'm earning a full-time passive income online at just 21 years old and I'm the youngest Super Affiliate in WA. You can check it out yourself inside the community!"
