Still Searching For A Way To Earn Online?


This Will Help!

I’m Rick and I started out here online without a clue. Searching for something that worked. Many times though I would get sidetracked into something that just costs money and didn’t pay any. If you keep reading I can help you save money and get started making money rather quickly!

Don’t Allow Yourself To Fall Into Cracks!

For very simple reasons, if you are not careful you can fall into one of many cracks here on the web! False advertisements and scams make up a good portion of the internet today. 

And, many times during my frustration I often wondered if people were that mean and cruel. I became frustrated, a bit saddened and also disappointed at what I saw in the beginning. 

If You’ve Been Laid Off Or Searching For Work

When I was laid off back in 2006 I needed a job and I wanted to do something different than be a maintenance worker for large companies. So I started thinking about what type jobs would allow me to earn more…

I did have a friend who drove a truck for the oil companies here in TEXAS and I he had mentioned I should look into that as he made really good money.

I didn’t have a Commercial Drivers License Though

But instead of telling myself I’d never be able to drive a truck…I first decided I wanted to become a Truck Driver and earn the Big Bucks.

So I decided to take the steps necessary to gain this result. WE ALL HAVE TO TAKE THE BEGINNING STEPS. NO MATTER WHAT WE ARE WANTING TO DO IN LIFE!



The first thing I did was get an education. Meaning I went down to the DMV and got the information I needed to study for their drivers’ test. I needed to build my skill level suitable for employment with a Truck Driving Company. So that is what I set out to do.

The phrase “How Do You Eat An Elephant came to mind.

When you find yourself taking on something completely new and strange…Think ONE STEP AT A TIME. What is the first step? What is next? 

And then think all the way to the end result that you want. Picture it in your mind. How does it feel?

What I Did To Find My Dream JOB

There is no need to go into the full story as becoming a truck driver is a bit normal really. But I did become a driver within a few months and I did work in the field for 5 years and I did make lots of money.

The only thing I was not prepared for and what I didn’t want, was the long long hours of being on the road. I knew this to be one of the facts of the trade,

but really thought I would be okay with long hours.

So after 5 years on the road, I did finally start thinking of what I WHAT IT WAS I NEEDED TO DO, and the steps that I needed to take if I wanted to be able to retire from trucking and perhaps just have a hobby that paid me well.

Maybe even work part-time from home in order to earn a good living and not spend 40 hours per week working. But only what I wanted to work…Like around 10 hours per week!


I later researched affiliate marketing and quickly figured out that I needed the marketing skills to work online.

So I started my educational journey of learning about Affiliate Marketing.

Soon after, I was on my way to making money here on the Internet and I had been able to quit a perfectly good prior job driving that truck.

I had learned something through it all.

That it no matter what job you want to have, it takes hard work and perseverance…

Get An Education No Matter What You Are Going For…

What I can tell you is that Internet Marketing is something different than most of us have ever done in the past or will ever do. And it takes a little bit of learning and understanding and skill building first of all. After that, it is pretty darn easy. And if it sounds like something you want to try…Read the review I wrote for the company I got my start with. Wealthy Affiliate


Are you serious about earning income using the Internet?

What marketing really is and how it works behind the scene is really quite easy to pick up and then master that skill set.

And you will be on your way to working from home and earning a great income. You can get started with just about any education here online that shows Affiliate Marketing.

But not all courses or programs or friendly. Nor do they have a great community of people that are like-minded and helpful. 

The Training Course Where I Got MY START

The image below is of a sign in form. It is where you will be able to sign up for a free course and enter a membership area which has great people who are all building financial success.

It is where you can register for FREE at Wealthy Affiliate and learn to build your skill level. As I did. 


Are You Geared For Success?


Did you know that most everyone fails a little bit each day? It is part of learning a skill. Education is the big key to success, online or off.

The secret that lies in online marketing is; become a specialist. It doesn’t matter what you specialize in as long as you have MAD-skills at whatever it is you are doing. 

Forget about trying to make money first, and focus on learning the game.
Get geared for success by building a skill level that very few others have. To specialize is to be an expert. And experts make money!

Are You Ready To Begin The Game?

But if you are anything like me you are far from being a robust sales person! You don’t have to be these days as many things can be done behind the scenes and money can still be made in bunches.

The very first thing to becoming a financial success here or anywhere is to learn to be the best at what you do.

Regarding such skill, it is important to understand that being very skillful will allow you to earn more than someone just kind of knowing the material.

Why not begin your journey NOW and hook
up with me to get the right kind of help today?

      Possibly you are only looking for fault in others and maybe you are upset for not making money online. What I do here on my site is my business and does not require you to police it. Sorry if you have your feathers ruffled.
      Why don’t you go police somewhere else. I’m not here to baby sit and be nice to people who make it a point to harass me here online. I get enough of these people.

      Thank you for your support. LOL


      ps. I will just send him the letter you wrote me that was nothing but harrassing criticism. So you may want to threaten someone else. Everything you said to me in the personal email and phone call will be brought up. so think about what you are stirring here and see if you want to move on or keep stirring!

    Far as I can tell, Wealthy Affiliate is not a recognized university so, wouldn’t you say that is false advertising? Unless people are issued diplomas, this is just not true. Thanks.

      Wealthy Affiliate is a training program that helps people learn how to market online. No its not a registered university. But it should be! Colleges do not even teach marketing or advertising online so students are getting out of
      College after spending thousands at a university and not getting the training they need here! Sorry I seemed to offend one person over the last year and a half I’ve been advertising it. LOL

      Who cares…it is just a name. You can take it up with the owners. But why even make the remark? I guess for some they just want to waste time and try to criticize others. You must be frustrated doing this. Sorry for that.

      If you would like to report it fine. You will have to report every one calling it a university! 🙂 Who the heck cares its a name.

      Thanks for the input Officer Maggie!

    Hi Rick,
    Thank you so much for your Down Hill Money site and your reviews of on-line businesses. I got to your site because I wanted to know if Quick Clone Cash (QCC)was legitimate. Usually learn the hard way by buying 1st and being scammed later.
    But, this time I decided to do due diligence first because making $20K per day for doing nothing sounded to good to be true even for me. I could feel the handcuffs closing around my wrist for being an accessory to bilking legitimate business out of billions. You, though not the only one, confirmed my worst suspicions. QCC does have a lot of top ranking google sites which look like blogs recommending them, but are really just google ads. So it takes a bit of research to find sites that are giving an honest unbiased opinion. Hope others will see that when they do their research.

      let us hope everyone eventually becomes aware of scam programs and stops getting ripped off!

    Rick, thanks for the honest and thorough walk through of getting started in affiliate marketing. I too have tried numerous ways to learn this stuff. I kept saying “there’s so much information out there.” I really thought I could piece it all together and make a go of it.

    Your recommendation to get started with Wealthy Affiliate makes total sense. What you’re saying about getting the tools, training and community all in one place makes total sense. Once the foundation is laid I can take my new site in whatever direction I want.

    I appreciate knowledge and honesty about this.

    PS: that Wealthy Affiliate try before you buy offer is a real clincher. I’m putting my toe in the water and am ready to roll.
