My Story

Hi. My name is Neal David.

You might be interested to know a bit about who I am and why I am writing this blog.

My story goes back to 2013, a time when I lost my full-time job as a HR Manager.

I mistakenly thought that I had enough skills, experience and contacts to get another job easily.

Unfortunately, I found myself competing with other more senior and experienced people and was unable to find suitable employment.

In the end, rather than get further frustrated, I decided to start my own business, a dream I had secretly held for a long time.

At first, I tried promoting my HR services to small business owners through a professional networking organisation.

I also went into partnership with a friend and created another business helping people find their dream job.

It was all good fun, learned a lot but needed a longer time to get up and running successfully.

Time that I did not have now.

And the tough reality was that I was not making enough money to survive.

Fortunately, in 2015, a former close colleague of mine, offered me a part-time HR position in a start-up organisation which I took.

This job went so well that I was offered a full-time position in 2017.

However, I didn’t want to let go of my business dreams so decided to explore the world of ecommerce.

I tried various business models including affiliate marketing, drop-shipping, and selling through Amazon.

Although I learned a lot about the different ecommerce business models, I didn’t manage to turn any of these into ongoing viable businesses.

I discovered that many of the programs I worked in promised more than they could actually deliver.

In 2020 supply chain issues associated with the pandemic and the cost of advertising online meant I had to shut down my drop-shipping venture.

Since then, I have been biding my time.

Fast forward to 2023 and I am excited to say that the opportunity to restart my online business journey has finally returned.

I expect that I will experience many challenges but am committed to make my affiliate marketing business a success.

My aim of this blog is to share the steps I take along the way.

I hope in doing so you can also learn from the steps I take along this road so that they can inspire you to keep going as well.
