About Me

Online Home IncomeHi, my name is Dave and I am the founder of OnlineHomeIncome.com.  My journey to discover how to create online home income started in 2007 after my first tour to Afghanistan with the Army.  Returning from the rigorous lifestyle of a deployment left me with a lot of downtime that I tried to fill with making a little bit of extra money online.  These early endeavors left me discouraged and frustrated because there are a lot of scams out there. 


The two things I lacked was 1) knowing how to make online home income and 2) finding someone who can teach me.  I tried several programs that ended up being scams and rip-offs.  After a few of these programs I gave up. Several years later I decided to give the online thing another try but I had the same luck as before.  This time I decided that instead of giving up, I would go it alone and build my own website.  I bought some software to get me started but this process took way too long.  


While doing some research I came across a review for Wealthy Affiliate.  At the time I was skeptical but there was one word that convinced me to give it a try… the word FREE.  Though there was a paid membership, I decided that I would not take a chance of losing money on another scam.  After joining I was instantly surprised at the quality of this program.  Within 3 days I launched my first website and I’ve continued to build better and better websites due to what I learned from Wealthy Affiliate.   


More About Me:  I am now married and have two kids.  I love spending time in the outdoors, riding my motorcycle, fishing, shooting, and most of all… spending time with my kids.  I have been in the Army for about 14 years and have been able to travel much of the world (over 25 countries total). 


A spiritual mentor once shared with me the difference between “The Good Life” and a “Life of Goodness.”  The Good Life values material things and making life easier.  A “Life of Goodness” values serving others, hard work, responsibility, and living righteous principles.  At the time I had less than $100 dollars to my name and felt that this was an odd topic to discuss with someone in my situation.  Looking back I realize that this was one of the most important discussions that I have ever had.  There have been many times when I have been at the crossroads between The Good Life and a Life of Goodness.  Though I have made countless mistakes along the way, I can tell you that all those mistakes involved choosing The Good Life over a Life of Goodness.  The ironic thing is that you can have the best of both lives, but only if you choose the Life of Goodness when you are at the crossroads.


A common way to make money online is through affiliate marketing.  The easiest way to explain this is that I provide links to products or services on my websites.  When someone clicks the link and makes a purchase, I get a commission.  Because I believe in Wealthy Affiliate so much I decided to become an affiliate marketer with them.  If you click through one of the links on my website and join Wealthy Affiliate, I will get a commission (if you upgrade to the Premium membership).  If the fact that I will receive a commission makes you skeptical then just open a new browser and type Wealthy Affiliate in Google and check it out that way.  


Whether you join through me or another way, I hope to see you in Wealthy Affiliate.  Once in there, look me up and I will help you in any way that I can.

    Hi Dave,
    I really like your site! It is filled with so much excellent information!
    I enjoyed reading your profile and reading of your mentor teaching you the difference between The Good Life and The Life of Goodness! That is such a valuable lesson.
    I too went through being scammed before I found Wealthy Affiliate. I would never have even investigated them if there had not been the FREE membership opportunity.
    I am so thankful for the integrity of that offer by Kyle & Carson and for having found Wealthy Affiliate!
    Christa 🙂

    Great article. Affiliate marketing is most definitely a great way to make money online and is one method most people use. It takes some time to generate traffic though, but when it works you can earn a lot of money.
