My name’s Theo McArthur and I’ve been working online since 1995. I left my job and went full-time online in 2001.
Over the last 15 years or so I’ve created and marketed many digital e-learning products and have also worked extensively in the field of affiliate marketing. I’ve built a number of ‘authority’ blogs to promote affiliate products and additionally worked on many other methods of marketing and profiting with affiliate offers.
In the mid-2000’s I got involved with trading and investing stocks, commodities and even foreign exchange. In 2014 after a tip-off from a friend, I made my first investment in cryptocurrency.
I have always preferred to have a number of business interests, so in the spring of 2013, I started selling on Amazon. Previous to that I had never sold any physical products online. Today I also run my own independent e-commerce websites.
I’m still an affiliate marketer, a vendor of my own information products and still actively involved in the financial markets, especially cryptocurrencies. However, I always wanted to sell physical products, and Amazon was the obvious place to get started.
Starting on Amazon without the guidance of an experienced seller can be tough and the courses I took myself were not complete and were missing certain vital parts of the ‘puzzle’. I learned more through trial and error than anything else, and that’s what prompted me to create a step-by-step blueprint for success on Amazon.
A year after starting on Amazon, I set up my independent e-commerce store in order to build an asset that was my own and could potentially be sold in the future.
Sometimes I get asked how I manage to get so much done. It’s simply a case of organisation and prioritising (is that a word? Anyway, I’m sure you know what I mean!). Obviously, I don’t do it all myself and I now have full-time and part-time assistants. However, when I first started out, I had nobody. Just myself and a young family to look after at the same time.
If you want something badly enough and if you’ve got passion (i.e. motivation), you will find a way to make it happen!
