How Making Money Online Is Easy | My Journey From Past To Present

How Making Money Online Is Easy | My Journey From Past To Present


Wanna be entrepreneurs tend to think earning money online is difficult.




As a snotty-nosed, 11 year old kid from the projects, I was bitten by ‘the entrepreneurship bug’ early. I hung out with my friend Terry on his paper routes! I was impressed at how my friend was making his own money. I also ran with him just to be doing something. (Not to mention I was interested in one of his customer’s daughter. Man! Was she cute!) But that’s a whole different story!

Yes sir! Young Terry was a real hustler back in those early years. Also, during that time before computers were ever in use and offered to the public; items were advertised, bought, and sold through newspapers. (Yep! That was our ‘social media’ back then. Making money online wasn’t invented yet. No internet!)

Later, as I got a little older, I’d try this technique; even if I wasn’t successful. I’d write something in the newspaper or magazine in reference to what they were inquiring. The prospect would then write in to me requesting more info and showing their interest. (I was always thrilled to see that inquiry come in the mailbox.)

Advertisers would hock their products through print. Later, the world of advertising would slowly revolve to great changes; that one day this ‘online marketing’ would ‘take off like a rocket,’ through such a thing called ‘the how making money online is easyinternet.’

Now if you wanna go waaaay back to the days of Abraham Lincoln (Or maybe NOT that far back), I know there were even hustlers back then.  The whole history of advertising can be traced back to ancient civilization.

The first colonial newspaper was published in 1690. In 1783, there were only 43 American newspapers in print. In 1741, America published its first magazine. Mostly newspapers were used a lot back in those days regarding advertising.

Whatever worked for advertiser to make a buck, it was probably used. (Sometimes even illegally and dishonest.) I’m sure they had some type of scam going on back then too. Lets face it! It appears the ‘hustling game within the advertising world’ will never go away!



I remember growing up in Chicago, selling Christmas cards door-to-door for some ‘fly by night’ company. For every box I sold, I’d get ahow making money online is easy commission. But I had to start selling the cards during the summer months, which I thought was weird.

I discovered the company did it this way because they needed time to process the order forms before the upcoming holiday. Customers will have their cards on time.

Although this form of ‘hustle’ was good, my main interest was art. I love drawing and painting, but mom didn’t have the money for brushes and canvases.

Selling Christmas cards, door-to-door, was my first affiliate marketing job. I was ‘bitten by the advertising’ bug! I loved this way of making some money with little work.

Nothing hard or physical. Just a lot of long weekends, walking in the hot sun, going door to door. But still have to be aware of my surroundings. (Thank God, the streets were no where as bad as they are today.)

The only thing bad about being a young hustler is that I did miss hanging out with my friends. Shooting hoops on the lot and playing softball is what they like to do almost every afternoon.  (My mind was set on how I could earn myself some pocket money.)




how making money online is easy

Things back then, in the early years, was no where what it is today in regards to violence in the street. The most that would happen back then was to maybe get my ass kicked and robbed.

Now, in today’s times, you’ll be thankful & lucky that would be the ONLY thing that’ll happen to you.

My friends wondered what was wrong with me. Why did I wanna do this? I enjoyed making my own money without asking my parents for everything.

Mom and dad only had enough money to keep a roof over our heads and barely pay the monthly bills. We ate whatever we could afford.

Mom always kept a little change on the side for her ‘Bull Frog’ beer, which she enjoyed drinking with her next-door neighbor friend. (I always got a big laugh out of that brand name!)LOL!! I’d watch them sitting there talking, laughing and drinking. I’d sit there thinking why I never had any ‘bucks’ in my pocket?




Selling art online was always a good possibility of earning.  As I mentioned before, art was just as important as my love for business and affiliate marketing.

Later in life, I really developed my skills in regards to the techniques of oil painting. (My knowledge of acrylics & watercolor came much later).

Below are some of my paintings I’d have outside on display during one of my art fair’s in Chicago, ILL. A real fun time that weekend!

how making money online is easy

This fair would feature oil paintings, framed drawings of unique subjects, hand-crafted dolls, airbrush pictures, metal sculptures, watercolors, etc;

That was an exciting time every year! Competition was stiff! I still remember this guy name Mario who had the booth right next to mine. (He was the best ‘Air Brush’ painter I ever seen.)

Obviously the visitors to the fair that weekend, must have thought so too. This guy was making sales like crazy! Had me feeling like a piece of shit! But we all bonded together like family. All art lovers alike to get together for a great time!

After I did not achieve my goal as an art instructor, I became interested in the movie business. For some reason, Hollywood producers found Chicago an excellent place to shoot movies. When they came to film, I was right there auditioning and ‘rubbing shoulders’ with the stars! I became a ‘camera hog!’ making money online is easy

When Basketball legend Bill Russell along with Gary Coleman, star of that TV comedy “Different Strokes,” came to town, I was cast to be Bill’s stand in. (I’m 6′ 5″)

But when I wasn’t doing this, you’d find me back at the kitchen table drawing. This was business as usual. Sadly, my selling desires slowed down. But never lost interest.

My love of art will never die! Just as comedy writing and illustrating my book,  ‘How to Select a Compatible Mate’, is just something that felt right to me. 

I’m so thankful to God each and everyday for giving me the talent which He instilled in me. But I also take NOTHING for granted. 

how making money online is easy

So this is what I’ve always have said:

“Never put limits yourself and your abilities! Dig deep within your soul and tap into that hidden talent!”




Since I was 15, I became very interested in music after my cousin (May She RIP) took me to my fist live stage concert at the Regal Theater to see the Temptations, Jackie Wilson, The Supremes and a host of others. It was always on a Sunday afternoon after church service. (We’d worship the Good Lord in the mornings, by late afternoon we’re ‘buck wild and out of control.)’ LOL.

I was hooked! I saw the crowd excitement, thousands of girls screaming and thought, “I’d like to do this.” I wasn’t even sure if I could sing, but something deep inside told me otherwise. You Can Do This, Ron!how-making-money-online-is-easy

So after many years of rehearsing, recruiting and arguing,(lol), this was the final result.  My brother, me (I’m the tall skinny one with the Big Afro), and my other two friends.

The one on the far left, Allan, died about 20 years ago. John, on the far right just vanished! We don’t know where he’s at. Just me and my older brother are the only two original members left. (And, as of today, we still sing!)

Our music passion continued. We wasn’t giving up! Our younger brother Lamont, was a very creative song writer and music producer. He was a singer as well. So it’s only natural all the brothers banded together to sing and create good music.

A bigger plus was that he had his own recording studio in his den. Boy! Did we have fun singing and producing!! My brother started his own production company, ‘Christian Artist Music, LTD.’  We could sing any types of music and his studio is open to any up and coming singers. He’s also willing to write and produce others who feel they’re ready.

Lamont and my oldest bother wrote and did the musical arrangements for The City of Chicago. My two brothers, our friend Ted and myself, all are singing on this original song the new mayor of Chicago has not heard yet. It’s called “Chicago Got it”.

But quite frankly, the entertainment world is so hard to break into. (Just like anything else in the business world, it all boils down to who you know).

I would always make it a point to remind my singing and band mates that if we didn’t make it in music, then we could always start are own business working from home. Affiliate marketing programs were slowly on the rise!



But again going back to my early years and my marketing interest, ‘Affiliate marketing always was in the forefront of my mind.’ It really never went away. Like anything else, I was determined to succeed.

The same drive I demonstrated in other fields, I put forward into affiliate marketing. Thinking of demonstrating the role of entrepreneurship, I labeled myself….how making money online is easy

“The Young Business Guy Headed For Success.” Always keeping my ‘eye on the prize’ and the financial reward down the road.

And as usual, friends tried to discourage me as I plowed forward to achieving my goal.  Why do so-called friends do that? They always want to discourage you from succeeding. I’m pretty sure sometime in life, you’ve experienced the same thing. But if you were like me, you’d be a damn fool to listen.

To all I’d say; “Never let anyone interfere with your moving forward to achieving and accomplishing your goal in life.” Maybe this is something you’ve always thought about getting involved with, but don’t know where to start.

Maybe you consider yourself a novice that want to get started in affiliate marketing, but need help getting ‘jump started.’ NOW’S YOUR CHANCE…Keep reading!

I always knew that “brass ring” was further down the road, but my determination and a desire to succeed was planted deeply within my soul. I knew one day, I’d get close enough to grab it! 

I remember trying to get my friends to think more independently, reaching out to grasp that ‘brass ring.’  I’ve read stories of how other young people started early and later became a big success in business. I thought, “If they could do it, so can I.”




Of course, as I grew older, over the years my appetite for affiliate marketing also grew as well. I also didn’t realize so many scams would surface, as I went through my research; and as more programs became available. All these ‘shiny objects’ looked tempting. But this is where you have to be careful as a beginning entrepreneur.


Over the years, I’ve found a lot of programs offering members the world with all the ‘bells and whistles’ attached, but produced little or no results.  

That’s why I knew it would take extensive research to find a good affiliate program. This was the way for me to go! Finding one that is honest, trustworthy, been around for a while in regards to longevity and scam free!

These type of programs are far and few between, but they are still out there. Case in point: Wealthy Affiliate!

  1. When we are young and enthusiastic, we try all sorts of new things.  Sometimes they stick.  I found out early on that I liked to sell, and was good at it.  So, I got into the jewelry business; have had a couple of long-lasting shops over the years.  Now I’m retired and trying my hand at affiliate marketing.  Such a great field!  This market is something with room for everyone.  If you have an idea, you can start filling it out and turning it into a full-time profession.  I’m glad to know you have found out it’s a good field, too…good luck to both of us!

    1. Hey Fran, In this business we need all the luck we can get. It is so much competition out here. So many different programs folks are promoting. Everybody and their grandma is selling something! All these ‘shiny and glittery’ things dangling before are eyes sometime do get tempting. But as long as we put in 100% of what we promote, that’s all that matters. 

  2. Having a mentor when venturing into online business is as crucial as the work you put into it. That’s what makes it easy. We lose it most of the time because we don’t have adequate guidance and someone to show us the way and pick us up when we veer off. How important in this era of scams to get a good affiliate programme, Wealthy Affiliate is indeed a great place to be at.

    1. Yes Nozie, way too much garbage is offered online now-a-day. Those type of programs offer little or no value to beginning entrepreneurs. The creators of these programs only care about what’s in your wallet than providing you with good guidance.

  3. Very interesting piece. I realized that am good at selling stuff and talking to people 6 years after graduation. Never the less things we love doing makes us who we are. I agree that WA is a real game. I would encourage every human to try and use their talent or hobby to pursue their dreams. Otherwsise your site is nice simple and elaborate. All the best. 

    1. Thank you my friend for checking in with me. I agree that we must do things that make us feel good! We must always think success, in whatever we do. You should always think you’re a ‘winner’ before you actually begin any project. Positive thinking is the real game changer! We must be rich in our minds, before our wallets. Please share my post with others.

  4. I think and agree with you 100%, the platform is laid for us to follow our dreams. It’s very important to pick the right low hanging fruit in the form of a niche that would wand to pursue and sell to the wider public. Well spotted and that’s what we should do in order for us to be successful as online marketers.


    1. Hey Joel, glad you were able to check in with me. Affiliate marketing, with a good solid marketing plan, is the way to go. Many folks fail when they don’t have the right information and the right business plan to get a good start on things! I think they give up to soon! Please share my post with others!

  5. I enjoyed reading your story. We all have some talents, but very few of us actually take our talents to another level. You liked earning your own money you said. I think that is why many people start an online business. They want to create and feel free to make their own future. Wealthy affiliate is my home now. I feel like a found a hidden gem in a haystack. Wealthy Affiliate have learned me to make a website and earn money with it. I started for free with the 10 Online education lessons. Now I am a pemium member and I could not dream of having my online office anywhere else.

    1. Hi Hilde, thanks for commenting. There ain’t too many programs that really educate its members on how to be successful in marketing like WA. It’s a one-stop-shop! Making money is the ‘key’ reason we want great websites and interesting niches. Glad to hear WA is working for you. Please share my post with others.

  6. This is life as it seems you have ventured into quite a lot eventually settling for affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is surely an amazing way to earn money as you can sit back while the money keeps rolling in. The issue with this is that it takes some time to achieve this and lots of work and patients but the amazing thing is that it is achievable and one of the best things to do is to have a guide which is sought of like a mentor to guide you through the process as this is one of the surest ways to achieve success online.

    1. Yes Manuel, affiliate marketing is the way to go! In my personal life, I had many choices to do many things. But many of those things took a lot of hard work just to get a break. There’s a lot of competition out here, regardless of what we’re into. Some folks do things different than others. Some folks work harder than others. But in the end, we’re all trying to capture that one thing….Success!! Please share my post with others. 

  7. i love your story and i was hooked from begining, what a way to start your career by selling xmas cards in the summer. Having independence so young must have been thrilling not only that but continuing with affiliate marketing and realizing  your passion for painting. I was also apprehensive when I first started but wealthy affiliate and the training they have has convinced be to keep at it too. 

    1. Yes Lee, I did a lot of things in my young life. Met a lot of folks that had the same interest as me. I was trying to make a career out of my music and my art, but couldn’t quite put the pieces together. (Music is really one hard business to break into. Tough competition) I settled on affiliate marketing because it’s less pressure on the mind compared to the others!

  8. I believe making money online is very easy but at the same time, it requires a lot of time, patience and consistency. A lot of people makes the mistake of having the mindset that getting Rich quick can work online, I had that kind too but as I dived better into it, I realized that it takes a lot. It’s good to read through your story, it’ll serve as inspiration to others.

    1. Thank you BeyondCol, I’m happy you enjoyed my site and will use it as inspiration. I agree with you that those ‘get rich quick’ programs never works. Time and money wasters! The ‘good programs’ definitely require the time, but in the long run, if done right, will pay of for you. Patience is a big part of the ‘key’ to success, in regards to marketing. 

  9. Thank you for sharing your journey with us Ron, it’s a really moving story and it is good to hear you have found what you are looking for to get into affiliate marketing. I am looking to become an affiliate marketer too and I have heard of Wealthy Affiliate before, do you know if you can join if you are not in the United States?

    1. Thank you Madeleine for reading my post. I’m glad you liked it. In my early younger years, it was a slight struggle growing up and trying to succeed in life. Now I’ve settled into Wealthy Affiliate and Madeleine without a doubt, I’ve learned a great deal doing my three years with them. WA is Not a get-rich-quick outfit. You have to put in the time, work and have patience.

(You’ll get 24/7 support) Later, if you want to upgrade your membership to premium, No problem… as long as you can convert your countries currency into USA dollars. Here’s the link:

  10. Hello awesome article you have here. this really caught my attention. I just could not ignore it, am really sure that this is going to help anyone that comes across it. I agree that WA is a real game. I would encourage every human to try and use their talent or hobby to pursue their dreams. Otherwise your site is nice simple and elaborate. All the best.

    1. Thank you Joy for checking in and commenting. I also hope it gets many other’s attention, especially the beginning entrepreneur wanting to earn. They just have to understand you can’t run after everything that ‘glitters’ and ‘Shiny.’ Unlike WA, many other companies will promise you everything, and deliver nothing! You just have to watch out for the scammers. Please share my post with others.

  11. Hello there, thanks for sharing this awesome article I know it would be of great help to the public as it has been of help to me. For me, I think affiliate marketing is the best option if anyone is planning on starting an online business, although it takes some time it really easy money.

    1. Yes my friend, affiliate marketing is the way to go. Especially, if you’re with a good program that can guide you along through all the ‘rough spots.’ Yes these programs take time. But what I would recommend to all new entrepreneurs, is to do your homework and try to avoid all the online scammers. Please share my post. Thanks.

  12. Thank you so much for sharing with us a beautiful and informative article. The main content of this article is How Making Money Online. It is truly remarkable that you have presented this topic so well in your article. I have learned a lot by reading your article and gained a lot of knowledge about it. Of the points mentioned in your article, I like NEEDED A MENTOR. If you want to make money online, you need a good mentor. In this case, of course, I would suggest the wealthy affiliate platform as a good mentor. I joined this platform and became proficient in training. Today I have become successful in the online world through affiliate marketing.

    1. Thank you Md, for the kind words. We all need a mentor in our personal and business life. We need that guidance to be successful in whatever we do in life. Making money online now, is the route many young business folks are taking. It has never been easier working from home. This is why I’m trying to educate folks about how working online from home can be great! Much success to you, my friend. 

  13. Wowz you have a very sweet story here and I really like that you could put it all together because it has really helped me understand all about making money online really well. Thank you so much for putting this together. I think I would like to try affiliate marketing and email marketing too. This is good stuff. Thanks allot for inspiring me.

    1. Thank you Jay, for checking in with me. Affiliate marketing is the way to go! Beginning entrepreneurs just have to be careful on who they wanna deal with. Every program isn’t honest, and careful research should be done before applying yourself. I’m glad I inspired you. Please share my post.

  14. On coming to this site I thought I was coming to get just one detail about online business and I feel.really happy that I got more than just that. I really feel happy with how you have made this article entail so much and from here we all would learn a lot and see the steps we need to take to get better. Thanks for sharing this really nice content

    1. Hi Justin. Thank you for the compliment. With this site, my main intention was to take the reader through a ‘past to present’ journey of my life. It never was a thing with me, of jumping right into an online business without showing the early struggles I endured. ‘Gotta crawl before you walk’.!

  15. It’s very true that making money online is very easy but the problem I think most people have with it is the fact that they don’t take time to make research about the business they’ll be going into, if you take the time to read online, you’ll be able to know how to go about it easily.

    1. Yes my friend. It takes hard work and dedication when a person wanna be successful at what they do. Nothing happens overnight. Research is ‘key’ in regards to getting yourself involved with a new business. We must be patient.

  16. Well! I believe it all depends on what we believe in and what we are willing to do to actually achieve the very best that we crave for. Actually I love what you have shared here and it is very informative and helpful to atleast help to build the right mindset required to achieve the very best. Thank you so much for sharing your story too. Quite a worthy read

    1. Thank you Kimberly for checking in with me. I’m glad you enjoyed my post. I’m hoping it will encourage those in the beginning, who’s having a had time getting started, to ‘hang in there’ and don’t give up! We all must push for success, regardless of what our humble beginnings were. Thank you again for commenting. 

  17. What a truly remarkable journey expressed in this article. the author has expertly shown a gradual and consistent flow of idea and personal development. Seeing someone show the various experiences encountered along the way is inspiring. Most importantly i must say that i am motivated by the article and will pay more attention to experiences i gather across my various journeys.

    1. Lucas, your compliment is very much appreciated. I agree that we all have are own personal journey in life. We all have to follow what ever path the Good Lord guide us down. You can just feel when something is ‘just right.’ Share my journey.

  18. Hello there! This is an amazing article you have got here. I am sure this informations in your review will be of great help to any one who come across it as it is to me. Many writers online terrify people with their words as they stress on the fact that making money online is not easy. For me, I believe with focus and right information  one can achieve it!

    Thanks for motivating me with your story.

    1. Thank you for reading and commenting Joy. I find it comfortable sharing my early life interest regarding affiliate marketing. (And also my art and music). If my story motivate just one person to ‘keep on pushing,’ then I’ve done my job! I’m happy! Sharing this would be great.

  19. Hello there, Thanks for sharing this awesome article I know it would be of great help to the public as it has been of help to me. What a very amazing story and it’s very hard to see grateful men nowadays as nobody longer believes that God is always behind every good success i pray he continues to lift you.

    1. Thank you for your nice comment, my friend. That’s my hope; to motivate others to continue moving forward regardless what struggles went on in the past. We all want to be successful in life! It’s just a matter of patience and being aware of opportunities when they present themselves.

  20. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful article. I have been looking for online business to make money and there have been some really bad business and some times I feel there are better ways to go about it and truly you have confirmed it with this article and I am pleased. Cheers

    1. Hi Justin. Thanks for dropping in. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I couldn’t agree with you more about the many business scams out there. But if you’re already with WA, then I guess you have nothing to worry about. I mention that because when you stated, “I have been looking for online business to make money,” it sounds like you’re not affiliated with anyone. But let me know if I can help you with anything. At least, you can rest asure that Wealthy Affiliate is Not A Scam!

  21. I have found your story so interesting. Yes, art is such an important expression and it can help us balance our lives. But reading about your journey and how you’ve been able to  become an established online entrepreneur has enlightened me to pursue similar goals. Thank you very much for this post.

    1. Thanks Ann for reading and commenting on my journey. I always say a person have to keep their nose to the ‘grindstone’ and ‘keep on pushing’ to have any kind of chance at success (Whatever that is) Much success to you.

  22. always good to learn from the best and I see you as one of the best. I am happy to be able to read your journey in his business and I hope to be able to reach you sometime. You have really gone through a whole lot to get to where you are right now and I hope to b able to follow your footstep. I also want to do away with scams an make good money in the internet.

    1. Thank you Jay for your kind words. (I try to stay on top of my game!) I think everyone goes through a little something early on in their life. It’s just a matter of how a person develop as the years progress. If a person is serious, then he or she will remain focused.

    1. Hi Sterling, glad you liked my post. I hope many can relate to my post by taking into consideration that we all are equipped with something special within us that we can bring forth. Maybe if we don’t want to become affiliate marketer’s, we can always monetize something else we enjoy. Only we can decide that!

  24. You had me glued to the screen, reading your story of when you were hustling, making your own money, and then made your music band. Do you have any recordings? I like your spirit, never ever give up, always keep going. Do you also have a website where you display your art?

    It is great that you found an online platform that helps others succeed and that you can now realize your dream of affiliate marketing. Can people sign up for free, is there a free trial?

    1. Hi Christine, thank you for checking in with me. I’m glad my site held your interest. Yes, I’ve done a lot of things in my earlier years in life. God has truly Blessed me. And I take nothing for granted! To answer your question in regards to my music; my two brothers and I have a gospel CD entitled “The Whole Armor of God” (You can go to Youtube, in search bar type in ‘LamontJ & company,(You’ll see the cover and hear some of the songs). In regards to my art. go to my instagram page,…   

      In regards to WA, I thought you were already a member and should know it’s free to join. Later, you can upgrade your membership. If you’re not with Wealthy Affiliate and want to build a business, go back to my site… and fill out the optin form at the bottom for some free bootcamp training. Please share my post

  25. I found myself deeply enthralled in your journey. I started nodding my head yes to some of your younger journeys like newspapers and oh my!! selling Christmas cards door to door, I did both oh so many years ago. Good memories. Now I am still in affiliate marketing and also a member of Wealthy Affiliate going on 2 years now, best platform of affiliate marketing anywheres online.

    1. I’m glad to hear someone else went down the same path I did. Those Christmas cards were a real hustle (I guess we all have to start somewhere.) Hustling young in the streets prepare us for earning in our adult life, not to mention the adult problems too. I’ve been with WA four years myself. Tell me ccav66, are u earning from your niche?

  26. Thank you so much for sharing us an interesting and informative article. The main theme of this article is How Making Money Online Easy.
