How Can I Make Money Online? | My Journey From Past To Present



Beginning 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. (Fast forward to the future: If it was in todays time, my buddy and I would be discussing, “how can I make money online?”)

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!

Young Terry was a real hustler back in those early grade school years. Although we hung a lot together as friends, I’m surprised how it is that our journey & travels into strange neighborhoods didn’t get us killed?!

(I never thought about the future and how the road to earning would play out as I got older.) 

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 newspaper print ads.

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 The Road To Earning Is Simple | My Journey From Past To Presentinternet.’

Now if you want to go way 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. My journey from back-in-the-day didn’t start that no where that early. (My parents weren’t even born yet! lol)

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 The Road To Earning Is Simple | My Journey From Past To Present 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 would be happy receiving their cards on time each year.

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 art supplies.

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 The Road To Earning Is Simple | My Journey From Past To Present

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? Of course, not to buy beer, but other things I like.



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 The Road To Earning Is Simple | My Journey From Past To Present

This fair would feature oil paintings, framed drawings of unique subjects, hand-crafted dolls, airbrush pictures, metal sculptures, watercolors, and plenty of brush on canvas work. 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!

He had me feeling like a piece of shit because I wasn’t selling! So was the lady exhibiter next to me. She wasn’t selling either.

But we all bonded together like family. During this slow afternoon, the lady went up to her hotel room, bought down a fifth of vodka and we got pretty drunk.

So all-in-all, It still turned out to be a great day. Art lovers were out and about, together for a great time!

After I did not achieve my goal as an art instructor, I became interested in the movie business. Chicago was the ‘place of choice!’

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!’ lol.How The Road To Earning Is Simple | My Journey From Past To Present

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. No one should! In a blink of God’s eye, it can be gone!

How The Road To Earning Is Simple | My Journey From Past To Present

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.

The Temptations, Jackie Wilson, The Supremes and a host of others performed.

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 The Road To Earning Is Simple | My Journey From Past To Present

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 along with my other younger brother!)

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 with good material.

Lamont and my oldest bother wrote and did the musical arrangements for The Road To The City Of Chicago, along with two other completed gospel CD’s.

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….

“The Young Business Guy Headed For Success.” 

Always keeping my ‘eye on the prize’ and the financial reward down the road.How The Road To Earning Is Simple | My Journey From Past To Present

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 anything like me, you’d be a damn fool to listen to all the negativity.

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 that 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 affiliate 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.
