My name is Alex, I am 28 years old and I am an Online Entrepreneur from Montreal.
I am not a millionaire, I am not some “internet marketing guru”. I am a simple guy who discovered the possibility of making money online and went along with it.
How Did I Get Here?
In 2007 I had a full time office job, the typical 9 to 5 with useless office meetings, 2 hours spent on daily commute and no sign of a bright future.
Without going into all of the details I had quit that job in the summer of 2007 and started looking for other opportunities online. This is how I came across the notion of making money online. I understood that many people were making a good living while working on the Internet and I thought: “Why not me?” I started learning and researching and the rest is history.
The Extra Paycheck Blog
In 2008 I felt the urge to share my journey with others and this is when I started this very blog. Just like my online business, Extra Paycheck Blog had its ups and downs over the years. I almost lost the domain once, the site had been hacked and I gave up on it more then once. However, in 2013 I’ve resurrected the blog for good.
Over the years I’ve learned more than I ever thought possible. I’ve created (and lost) successful online businesses, I’ve done online marketing for local businesses and I think I should share stories, experiences and strategies with my audience. If this blog will help a single person to become successful – I’d be very happy.
I need to write a few final words here. I have found out the secret to online riches! The secret is that you need to put in a lot of work into an online business. Success doesn’t happen overnight and there is no magic button to success. If you are willing to learn and invest your time then stick around and I’m sure you’ll learn quite a bit from my posts. If you’re looking for a “get-rich-quick-scheme” then this is the wrong place.
Success to you,
