Joined 15 months ago from Savannah GA
I’ve been self employed since 1986. Before that, I got my BS Degree in Computer Science in Savannah, GA and I worked for the Fulton County data processing dept for 2 years.
I started out selling some mail list management software I wrote called Flowmail 6000. That led to doing data processing for mail houses in Atlanta.
One day, an expert welder in Chattanooga called me and asked if I would help him sell his book, Welding Secrets. That’s when I got into direct mail marketing. I found out that there were huge lists of welders I could rent, send a flyer to, and they would send me a check for the book. Sometimes 100’s per day! Boy! Was I hooked! I bought a 38’ yacht with that Welding Secrets money.
I moved on to writing my own books and selling them offline and online. One of my best sellers was Competition BBQ Secrets which I sold through Clickbank. I made a living for 10 years doing that while I lived on my 37’ Winnebago motor home.
I did BBQ competitions to promote the book and ended up winning 8 Grand Championships and best brisket cook in the World in 2013. But the competition got too fierce with 1000’s of people writing their own BBQ books and giving away free BBQ info on the net, so I had to move on to bigger and better things.
