How this guy fired his boss and work full-time online

As of 1 September 2017, I am officially unemployable because there isn’t any work on the market that can pay me more than what I am making from my part-time online business.

I’ve started my online business since 2015 and I am glad that it has grown to this stage.

My name is Jack, and I want to share with you my story on how I quit my job to manage my online business full-time.


I’ll be very honest with you, whoever that tells you that making money online is easy, they are bulls**ting. Period.

You’ve probably seen many advertisements that sound something like “3 simple steps to make money online” or “automated online business that makes six figure income”.

The fact is, nothing is easy. If it is, there wouldn’t be anyone in the workforce anymore.

If you’ve read my stories about how I make money online (My Journey: 2015, 2016 & 2017), you’ll probably know that making money online is not easy, yet it is not that difficult either.

Today, I would like to share with you the steps that I took to achieve my first dollar online, and how I generated a full-time income from my part-time online business that allowed me to fire my boss.

My Results for August 2017



That’s $6,650.50 for August 2017

Results for September 2017



That’s $6016.00 for September 2017

Results for October 2017



That’s $8,678.70 for October 2017

To some people, these results may not be fantastic, but to many I believe it is a life changing income.

I accredit my success to Wealthy Affiliate, because it has taught me everything I need to know to grow a successful online business.

Not only me, thousands of members are already benefiting from the lessons taught in the program.

How it all started…

You see, I started out as a full time employee in the corporate world, and I always wanted to learn how to make money online and be financially free.

So 2 years ago in 2015, I went on to search for make money online programs, and have tried and tested many of them.

The problem is, most of those programs were either scams or they do not get you anywhere.

Finding a legitimate make money online program is diamond in the rough.

I lost a few thousand dollars to those so called “gurus” who promised heaven but delivered hell.

I was frustrated and defeated at that time, to the point where I wanted to give up being financially free.

But, I stopped whining and started to do further research, and that’s when I chanced upon Wealthy Affiliate. It looked like a legitimate program and I felt the sincerity of the founders.

But, I was on high alert at that time, and since there was a free trial for the program which didn’t require my credit card details, I thought why not just give it a try.

So, I went ahead with the program with great skepticism.

To my astonishment, that program has provided me a ton of information without paying a single cent, it was something that no other programs (that I paid for) provide.

Did I become successful right away?

I’d love to tell you that it was all rainbows and butterflies after joining Wealthy Affiliate, but in fact, I failed a couple of times before I found success.

Now, this is not a review about Wealthy Affiliate and what it can offer, if you want to know more about Wealthy Affiliate, you can check it out here.

This is my story on how I made my first dollar online.

My First Dollar Online

So, I was taught these are the elements required to create a successful online business:

  1. Finding something that you are passionate about (Niche) and build a business around it
  2. Brainstorm something unique that can connect you with the people who share the same passion
  3. Find great products in your niche to promote
  4. Create great content that people are interested in
  5. Link the content to affiliate products

I did everything I could, followed all the steps provided, and have been working really hard on my business.

Months fly by, but still, no results…

down-and-outI was down and out.

Imagine, having to work long hours on my online business during weekdays, right before I head to my full-time job, and after I came back from work, as well as working many hours during the weekends and neglecting my family time.

All these were for nothing if I didn’t achieve any results.

I was at the breaking point where I wanted out.

But, somehow, I reminded (threatened) myself that if I give up now, I might as well just give up the dream about being financially free.

That hit me really hard because I have tried many business opportunities before finding Wealthy Affiliate, and none of them come close to the opportunity that Wealthy Affiliate has provided.

So once again, I quit whining and seek help from other members of the Wealthy Affiliate community.

It was then Kyle and Carson (the founders of Wealthy Affiliate), and many other members came to my rescue and showed me the way.

They’ve given me a lot of advices and I went on to revamp my website.

And, on the 4th month since I joined Wealthy Affiliate, that first dollar came in, and it was my happiest moment at that time.

You may think that the first dollar is very little, but it does show that your online business is finally working.

In my opinion, earning the first dollar online is the hardest, and once you’ve breached that milestone, the second dollar and onwards will be much easier.

How my Online business became a Success…

Skip ahead till today, you’ve seen my results above.

Although the first dollar online was made, the journey to expanding it is an interesting yet tiresome one.

hard-workingIf you want to be successful online, you can never be complacent.

You have to constantly upgrade your knowledge and put them to good use.

And at the same time, you have to constantly work on your business (writing content, creating ads, social media marketing, etc).

There’s never an end game to this.

The hardest part in this journey was the fight against time.

I never had enough personal time, never had enough time for my family, never had enough time for my online business, and the list goes on.

I struggled several years, trying to juggle between my day job, my online business and my family.

This struggle was finally over on 31 August 2017 (the last day of my full-time job).

Now, I am a full-time online entrepreneur, and it leaves me some time to give back to the Wealthy Affiliate community and to people like you to find success online.

If you are willing, I would be glad to be your coach to assist you on your journey to success.

The Real Reason I Quit my Full-time job – If you like gossiping read on

I initially intended to work till December 2017, but I had to quit because I felt that I was unfairly treated in my work place.

I am sure after reading this, you probably think that you had that experience with your work place as well.

The boss doesn’t show respect to me, my direct manager always takes credit for my work, distrust between employees and the list goes on.

It was just terrible, and working any longer there will destroy my health even further.

I tendered my resignation right in a heated argument with my direct manager (reason being my manager was pushing the blame on me for an instruction she has given – Just because someone else was pointing fingers at her – and of course there were many other factors for my resignation, this argument was just the tipping point), and boy, throwing that verbal resignation to my manager’s face was the best feeling I can ever get.

Also, knowing that you don’t need to worry about finding a job was really comforting.

I hope you will not need to fire your boss, but I do hope that you will be able to quit your job comfortably without the need to worry about your finance.

If you are ready to take on this challenge to start your success story, then let me be your Wealthy Affiliate coach now.

Hi Jack!

I found Wealthy Affiliate through the review on your website and joining this Online University was the best decision I ever made regarding how to start an online business that can actually make you money.

But as you say, this process takes time – it’s not a get-rich-quick scheme (I have also been burnt a couple of times and I was very skeptical before starting a new program) and those never work out anyways or turn out to be scams, as you are exposing on your website.

Congratulations on going online full time! Firing your boss must have felt really good. Your hard work paid off and I’m inspired by your story 🙂
