Overworked and underpaid.
That’s the life most of us live and one that I tried not to be apart of.
Sadly so, I did and I have come to the conclusion that it’s just a part of life.
At least for most of us that don’t get things handed to us.
With Underpaids, I want to help others that are in the same boat.
I want to help you achieve your financial goals, and save money where it’s possible, along with other ways you can handle your money.
Over the years, I have helped thousands of people avoid making money online scams and start their very own online businesses.
Along with teaching the many tips and strategies on how to squeeze money out of the internet.
I love what I do and as long as the internet exists, I don’t think I would do anything else.
But just like most of you Underpaids, I wasn’t born into a family of successful entrepreneurs.
Who I Am
I’m John, and I am a regular old dad that does dad things.
I have four kids and a wonderful wife that I spend most of my time with.
I am a full-time online entrepreneur and have been for the last 9+ years.
With such a career, most of my time is spent with my family.
And just like how I’m writing this about me page, everyone is in my office asking me all kinds of questions.
Although great, you can see the challenges that working from home comes with, which I can not complain about.
Anyways, we love sports (especially soccer), strolling the mall, and eating out.
I know, it’s not the healthiest and best way to spend our money, but it’s what we enjoy doing.
Before any of that stuff, entrepreneurship wasn’t on the table.
I started my young adult life as an infantryman in the US Army.
After some time in the Middle East, I finally decided that Army life was not my style.
I then went back to being a civilian and landing the best job anyone could ever have.
I was a messenger for the retirement fund and all I did was deliver things.
This job allowed me to meet all kinds of people and I absolutely loved it.
The only problem with such a fun job was the fact that I wasn’t making enough money.
Not that my job was hard or anything but I was literally at the bottom of the chain.
Every single person that worked there made more than me.
With my first son being born, I knew I had to do something.
That led to me turning in my two weeks’ notice and on to what I thought was my ticket to financial success.
I Opened a Bar
Yup, I decided that I wanted to run my own business and be my own boss.
The bar was awesome and I took pride in it.
There was just one problem.
Okay, there were actually many problems but one big one that is never good.
I loved to drink.
Not only did I drink every single day but I had lots of friends that did the same.
On top of being affiliated with alcoholics, this was my first rodeo.
That dream turned into a disaster real fast and I found myself in a huge mess.
Not only was I in debt, but I also had another kid and an empty bank account.
I then found myself living back with my mom, as I needed someone to babysit my kids while I figured out what to do next.
My Start Online
One late night I found myself dozing off to some TV that eventually introduced me to my first scam.
Some dude on TV is a millionaire, and he did it all through the internet.
Being a bit desperate, I purchased his book.
I figured that a $50 investment would be worth it, whether this book worked or not.
Of course, it didn’t work, and once again I was out looking for something else.
Being the stubborn dude I am, I continued my search on finding something that actually worked.
This led to more scams and Ponzi schemes and me being in even more debt.
All that stopped when I finally figured out that every product I purchased was nothing but bait.
I fell for the get-rich-quick BS and I only made these idiots more money.
With thousands of dollars in debt and nothing but a recruiting-based Ponzi to promote, I did exactly that.
I tried everything in my power to get others to join and it just didn’t work
People weren’t as stupid as I was and they didn’t fall the same nonsense I fell for.
My Breakthrough…Kind of
I tried my hardest to recruit others and it allowed me to meet someone who was actually making money online.
He told me he was making around $2,000/month and it absolutely blew my mind.
It’s nothing to brag about but it sure beats the $0 I’ve made after dumping thousands of dollars into these scammer’s bank accounts.
There was a catch though.
The program this dude showed me required 3 things.
- Actual work
- And more patience
Left without a choice, I did what I needed to do.
Not in a month and not in my 2nd month either.
Not month 3 but by month 4, I finally made my first $1.
I literally screamed.
My wife came running and told me I was crazy.
To her, it was just $1.
To me, it proved that this whole online thing works.
That $1 turned into $100 and that $100 eventually turned into $1,000.
Since then, it was all a matter of scaling and growing and business has been great since.
I did get my start at a program called Wealthy Affiliate, but there are many others that you could use.
The idea is not to sit here and brag but rather to tell you that you can make a real career from the internet.
As long as you are willing to learn and you have some patience, there is a huge chance that you can make money online.
And with Underpaids.com, there is no reason as to why you can’t make it happen.
I hope this site helps you in one way or another and please do contact me if you need help with anything.
I know how it is to start and fail, so I’m willing to help as many people as I can.
I’ve helped thousands do the same and there is no reason why I can’t help you.
Until next time, don’t ever let anyone tell you that you can’t make money on the internet or whatever it is that you want to do.
