Hello, welcome to my blog, for the last 15 plus years (as of September 2019) I have been earning an income online in the e-commerce space and more recently social media and affiliate marketing, having first started on eBay, having over 15 years experience in earning money online I thought it about time I shared my experience, knowledge, failures and successes with you, with the hope that you will benefit from this, at the same time avoiding some of the mistakes and pitfalls I have encountered.
So who am I?
First off, to state the obvious, my name is Mark Ashmore, and I live on the East Coast of England with my lovely wife and our three handsome sons, my background is bricks and mortar retail, working at senior management level for blue chip and multinational High Street retailers, prior to which I dabbled in various types of field sales jobs.
My aspiration to be my own boss started at school, with a dream to start my own business/company and be my own boss, after 19 years of working for someone else, along with wasting money jumping from one MLM and ‘get rich quick’ scheme to another, I was finally kicked into positive, focussed action after experiencing a personal tragedy, no doubt I’m not alone in this!
What have I achieved?
Fast forward to today and I have a successful business running an e-commerce store, Amazon, eBay and Etsy stores, designing, manufacturing, sourcing and marketing our own products, my journey has been a rocky one, with highs and lows, one particularly significant low was when my eBay business, generating £8000 a month was shut down, this prompted me to move over to Amazon, not that I had a choice! I went from Zero to £400,000 in two years, with the biggest month to date bringing in £80,000 no mean feat, and one that took blood, sweat and occasionally tears.
What can you expect?
My aim is to share with you my experience, tips and advice, share honest reviews, insights, and resources that I hope will be of benefit and use to you as you start or continue your journey to building a successful personally and financially rewarding online business.
