About Me

Welcome to Real Affiliate Income.


Thank you for stopping by.Picture of Forrest

Hello, my name is Forrest and I have a dream.

Throughout the years, I have always worked hard. I have had many “jobs” working for other people and, I have also been self-employed.

During that time, I have found that my work was the most rewarding when I worked for myself, as opposed to the typical 9-5 job where you have to get up every morning and go out in all kinds of weather to make someone else rich, while never getting the salary or respect you “think” you deserve.

Sound Familiar?

I think there are many people who feel the same way.

Also, when working for someone else, you have to do things their way and abide by their rules, not necessarily the way you would like to do it.

I had a boss once that said to me, after making a suggestion on how I thought something could be done more efficiently, “It’s my way or the highway”. I couldn’t believe someone would actually say that.


Getting back to my dream


For many years, it has been a dream of mine to have a business of my own, that could be done totally from home and would compensate me according to what I deserve to be making with respect to the time and effort I was willing to put into it.

A business that could be done from anywhere in the country or, the world for that matter.

If I wanted to spend the winter months in a warmer climate and summer’s somewhere a little more pleasant then, so be it!

A few years ago, I came to the realization that the best way to accomplish this was to start a business online.

So, not knowing what I was doing, I searched and searched for the golden key that would teach me the right way to make money online.

I have, what I now like to refer to as, a “throw away” email account with thousands of emails from the so-called Gurus of internet marketing, all trying to sell my dream to me, promising that they held that golden key on how to become successful online.

Much of that I skipped over but, to be honest, some of it I bought into, only to find that it was either somewhat outdated or incomplete, with the promise that if I bought the next thing, it would provide just a little more of what I needed to know and on and on and on.

What I really needed and was searching for was a complete step-by-step process that would explain everything in detail and, would honestly teach me how to become successful hence, the reason for this website.


I Found It!


Eventually, I did find what I was looking for when I discovered Wealthy Affiliate, which is an online learning platform that takes you from knowing absolutely nothing and teaches you how to build a successful online business.

So, with this website, I will be taking you along on my journey and walking you through the things that I have learned about affiliate marketing online so that you don’t have to waste your time getting frustrated in your attempt to educate yourself about how to make money online while avoiding the scams and misinformation you will surely come across.

Again, I am Forrest. It’s great to meet you and feel free to contact me if you need anything.
