Seven years ago at the tender age of 29, I was a professor at Vanderbilt University, in charge of 6 other teachers, and living what I thought was a great life. My parents loved telling people that I was a professor. I had prestige, money, I thought I had it all – and then I lost my job.
I was devastated – but determined to maintain my lifestyle. I had been thinking about an Internet Marketing business for a while, and now that I had time, and some savings, within 2 years I was making well over $750,000 a year online.
And if I didn’t have an overblown ego before…now it was in full overdrive.
Then I found a big problem with the business I’d built – or more like… it found me. Because I’d built everything around a single source of traffic & profits, when that source went away, everything I had built fell apart.
