Hi, my name is Jonathan Matos. I was born and raised in South Florida. I left home at young age, 16 years old, and learned I needed to work to survive. By 19 I was fed up with trading my time for money, and it just seemed like the money was never enough! This is when I began to look for my Get Rich Quick Scheme.
Back in 2004, the Real Estate market was BOOMING! I fed into an advertisement about a real estate convention that was going to reveal the secrets to flipping properties with no money. Towards the end of the convention it dawned on me that this was gimmick. They wanted me to spend $100s on their training program. Not to mention, their free gifts were a joke!
A year later, I started following a fellow name Dean Graziosi I found online, who also sold me the dream that he knew the secrets to making millions in real estate. I bought his book for $20, How to Become a Real Estate Millionaire. It was a good read, but without any money to invest, I was very limited on my options. I applied a couple techniques, but after 60 days or so I had gotten nowhere!
I Learned About the Internet
After giving up on real estate in 2008, I moved on to my next get rich quick scheme. I found information online about making $1000s a month posting links on the internet, but everywhere I turned they were asking for too much money to learn it. I gave up, because I did not want to risk losing any money.
After revisiting this idea again, I was able to find some free information. I got a whole packet of useless information. It was all outdated and worthless to me because it would not teach me how to take my first steps.
More Failures in the Years to Come
In 2009 I tried an MLM, Amway. I believed in the hype about how easy it is to become wealthy. I failed though because I didn’t want to sell anymore and could not recruit if my life depended on it!
In 2010 I tried to build a website/social network (social networks were booming at this time), but I failed here because it seemed like everywhere I turned they were trying to get $1 out of me (website costs, domain names, hosting, design, and training)
Fast Forward to 2015
I was at my wits end with this 9 to 5 Rat Race. I searched diligently for weeks trying to find another business opportunity. By this time, I realized that it was going to take hard work and commitment to achieve my goals. Then I found Wealthy Affiliate. It was like a breath of fresh air. I had peace of mind because they were no upsells, and they were honest and transparent.
