Hey Guys. I wanted to write this blog post today for two reasons. I have been doing a bit of research on finding ways to create abundance in your life. 1) To try my hand at affiliate marketing 2) To show others how you go about making an income from affiliate marketing.
I am now 26 years of age but I left school at 14 because I needed to be hospitalized for my mental health. This meant I didn’t do my junior certificate, nor my leaving certificate and if you are Irish you know the emphasis put on the Leaving Certificate. The standard for most Secondary students is to get a good leaving certificate and then go on to university or else do a post-leaving-certificate course and then go onto college. At 18 I didn’t have any certificate in education to show to my name. I tried to apply for a pre-nursing course but when asked why I didn’t sit my exams I blurted out I was unwell with anxiety. My interviewer asked a few more questions to which I was now sweating, heart pulsing, panicked and totally falling over my words. She ended the interview by telling me the pre-nursing course was very intense and If I had severe anxiety I more than likely wouldn’t be able to do it. Traumatized, I returned to my residential house, got under my duvet and cried myself to sleep. This was September 2015.
The next time I applied for a course was in August 2017. Level 5 Healthcare and I got it, however I missed the first two weeks of it as I was receiving treatment in St. James’s Hospital for a severe crohn’s flare. I attended the healthcare course and I enjoyed it. I also felt something for one of the guys my age in my course. I sat beside him. We didn’t really talk much at the start but when I was with him, my body relaxed and I felt safe. I stayed in the course for four months and then I had to leave without finishing it. I may not have got my level 5 in healthcare but I know it was meant to be. I was meant to do that course because 7 years later I live with that man I mentioned and our baby (who is a cat) and he is my partner for everything in life. Anyway back to education. Between 2015 – 2019 I didn’t really know what I was doing with my life. I had a blog at the time but it was never to earn an income. I relapsed with a suicide attempt every few months and this overwhelming constant shadow of being useless, worthless and never going to amount to anything. That mindset made me walk out in front of a train.
I know longer have that attitude and while I always wanted to be a writer, the timing has never been right. In 2020 my book submission got accepted by a publisher but I had to put it on the back burner due to external factors. Then Covid happened and the word SIDE HUSTLE blew up and with it every type of income opportunity. People had to get creative to stay afloat and while I am a bit late to jump on the side hustle bandwagon now, I feel the timing is right. This is my first time trying affiliate marketing but I am hoping in the next few months to build up this blog to be able to generate a small income with the dream of becoming a full time blogger and creating enough abundance in my life to be able to do the things I would love to do. Travel, drive, buy a car, make my house a home etc.
Here are 3 affiliate links to look into if you want to increase your income . They are simple online jobs that you can do as long as you have an internet connection.
Do you use Facebook? Are you looking for a job you can do online? Hundreds of businesses are currently hiring new Facebook Chat Assistants to chat with their customers on Facebook. There are a lot of positions available for people from all countries and because of the high demand for new workers, entry level jobs are paying $30/hr.
This is a job posting for online jobs where you get paid to chat with customers on a business’s Twitter account. These are remote positions, meaning you log in online to do the work, and all you need is basic English skills and a Twitter account.
I hope this helps to bring in an income for you so you too can start creating a life of abundance so you are able to do the things you enjoy and live your best life.
Let me know how you get on.
Lots of love
