My Story

A blog about Online Business, Personal Finance and SaaS. Where entrepreneurs are born and grow into successful business owners, with marketing tech as their weapon of choice.

How It All Started

Well, I guess this is my story...

I actually come from what everyone calls, the California bubble.

I grew up in a decent neighborhood where almost everyone had a good job and never really had to worry about money. I never really traveled outside of California other than on camping trips and visiting my dad's hometown in Guatemala.

But when I was younger, It wasn't always like this. My parents split up before I was even born and my dad did everything he could to bring food to the table. He had to work 3 jobs and was always working to make ends meet.

This did allow me to truly feel grateful for what I had.

Even when things were tough, I knew that it could always be worse.

Eventually, my dad and my mom both found their significant others and I moved in with my mom.

Moving on...

So, after high school, I joined the military to not only serve my country but to also learn skills I can use to be successful in the future.

Unfortunately, I didn't have the skills that would allow me to make a real living outside of the U.S Army so I decided to take on different side hustles to become my own boss.

After many failed attempts trying different business ideas (And getting scammed), I was finally able to find one that worked for me and now I want to share my story in hopes to help others who are in a similar situation.

About Eddy.

In 2019, I began my very first blogging journey and failed miserably because of a lack of motivation and FOMO (Fear of missing out.) Now I grew two online businesses from the ground up and blog full-time to help entrepreneurs get out of the rat race with unique side hustles.

This is how it all started...

My Success Story In 2021

So I started my first blog using the methods I learned from taking Adam Enfroy's blogging course and Create And Go's Six-Figure Blogger course.

At first, it was challenging since I had no prior experience in blogging or marketing online. But with a lot of hard work and determination, I was finally able to make my first sale after only three months of working on my blog.

My First Side Hustle started out with affiliate marketing and I loved the idea of making money selling other people's product but again, I made the mistake of trusting "gurus" online and I purchased a $4000 course that I could have honestly learned for free using YouTube and Google search... At that point, I gave up on affiliate marketing and that's when I tried blogging out.

Boy was I in for a huge headache, I thought it was going to be easy setting up a website and just throwing content out that I liked, but it was the complete opposite and that's when I found out you need to learn SEO, building relevant content, organic reach, building connections, social media marketing, influencing others and so much more that I just wasn't prepared for. 

My very first blog completely flopped and I was miserable. I felt like I was letting everyone down around me, the most important people in my life felt like I was just wasting my time and that crushed my online journey. 


I knew they were just looking out for me, but I always kept seeing others win and I just kept getting very frustrated because I knew that I was meant for more.

The Push I Needed ❤️

Little did I know that all these side hustles I tried built me up to where I am now and meeting my amazing girlfriend Gloria.

I was able to get traction from credit repair topics and earn revenue through affiliate marketing, YouTube videos, and consulting.

Side note: I became a blog coach for Adam Enfroy and The Jasper Mastermind.

And after only one year of working on my blog, I was able to quit my job and become a full-time blogger.

Looking back at where I started, it's hard to believe how far I've come. But through all the ups and downs, what really kept me going was having a strong focus on my goals and persevering no matter what.

But now as I continue to build my online business, I look back at where it all started... And it all started with a blog.

So as they say, the rest is history... Now here I am today, running my own successful online business and helping others achieve their goals through blogging and becoming a content creator.

What I Talk About ☕ 

How I make money online and how you can grow your business with any of these models.

Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing has played a huge part in letting me earn "passive income" online. This is the process of selling other people's products and receive a commission on a recurring basis or a one-time fee.

Selling Digital Products

Selling digital products is a perfect phase up from affiliate marketing and allows you to grow your income online. If you need someone to help you create your first digital product and market it correctly, I'm your guy!


Youtube & Other Social Platforms

The internet is moving more towards social media, so it's important to grow your audience on Instagram and YouTube if you want to create and sell products online. Growing organically instead of paying for ads can be a fun way to do affiliate marketing or selling your own digital products.
