Hey, my name is Cameron Malcolmson and I just wanted to share with you, this Crazy story…

It Really all started when I was a young buck of a boy, in the fresh fun days of school.

Not really being the most popular but still have some great friends, we would get up to no good as Young boys do…

While in lockdown in School and Like everyone I assume, I wanted to have a Great family and Nice home for my wife and kids, even going as far as wanting a tribe, of a family if you know what I mean!

So, being a young buck with more stubbornness than sense, I wondered to myself how on earth could I provide for my family, when it came time to do so, if I really wanted to have a Big Family?

Now I didn’t have an ounce of since in my head back then… Flip I don’t really want to talk about some of the stuff we would all get up too… But I suppose this was a part of growing up…

Here are just a few, ditching school was at the top of the to-do list, even done some stupid silly things in the classroom with teachers and got into the horrible detention thinking I was king dick! Getting a sore wrist from all the writing I had to do, two pages raced to the finish And Home…

You know something, I wasn’t even an outgoing person or confident! I was that Kind of person who never really talked and avoided talking to people. Sometimes people would call me antisocial, an introvert!

I would completely avoid conversations with people, and I didn’t really understand why I thought there was something wrong with me… Like why I could not be the outgoing person my dad wanted me to be and join in with the conversations everyone was having talking about football or the latest soap opera…

I knew a lot of the older people in school because of where a grew up… They were a couple of years older than me, some of my good friends back then didn’t even finish school.

Being foolish, I was thinking about doing the same things, flip even got so bad to the point where my friend and me were in counselling for… I’ll not say much more about this let’s just say we got up to no good…

My mum told me when a lot of my friends, started dropping off and not finishing school, look Cameron you have come all this way now… you might as well finish and get your GCSE’s…

So that’s what I decided, I even told my close friend at the time this as well… to see if they wanted to stick it out till the end with me and Try to get some good Grades. To get a good Job with Good pay to help me fund the family I desired.

After Leaving School and starting a tech course in construction for two years, I NEVER wanted to go the university NEVER because of the Debt that came with it back then I had the sense, but I didn’t know any better, I totally immersed myself in 6 years of study possibly not the right study I wanted.

While working at restaurants starting as a Kitchen Porter in cafes and pretty much-getting pocket money there to fund my life… Not getting much return on my study… and Finally making it to degree level I surprisingly found out I had been dyslexic the whole time! :-D

I finally made it to a decent Job! By this Stage of it all, I knew What I wanted… A headquarters where I could run all my Businesses from, that’s why I decided to do construction to build it up and let it run itself. That would give me the Freedom and Money I needed for my family and life I truly wanted…

I truly wanted to have a Great Family (A Tribe) possibly… that I could take to the places my dad took me to and really before this could happen I needed to get my financial game on track!

6 long years of chasing my dream to get a good full-time income and fund this Dream, provide for the family and home I wanted since being in school… and Really Start my own businesses so I could afford to Travel the World, Buy Nice Clothes and drive nice Cars, this was deep in my Heart…

Want to know something that totally crushed me? I still didn’t have a full-time income or even a stable Job, some weeks I would work 5 days some it would be messily 3 days… Then pay the rent for the house share I lived in at the time! I gave it my all and I was getting nowhere Fast!

I made it to a £8.5 an hour job, the best money I ever Got in my entire Life! But realised I still could never have afforded all the beautiful things I wanted out of life… I ended up having to Get a Second Job as a Chef well… I Worked them horrible long days and nights, never seeing the light of day! Even If I did have the chance to meet with a girl, I always worked! And had nothing to show for it!

So, I was sitting in my desired Job working in construction, and beside me, there was a guy who was in his early 30’s we both got along Great I thought… we always had a laugh together!

One time I can Remember we went out for launch it wasn’t the nicest of day’s it was blowy and Cold out, but he said about how our boss must have had “some balls” to start her own business… :-D

That made me laugh because she was a woman…

In an office where my boss sat very close to us, I really wanted this to work for me… That’s why I took everything I had and moved into the city, so it was easy for me to get to work… and be completely and fully committed to the process…

I was really getting treated like a baby though that I can understand it was my second time working in that type of environment… I wanted to be the Man that Got Stuff Done! The Guy I sat with was older, but he only graduated a Year Before me! He was Just starting out too…

To Be honest the whole experience knocked my Confidence. I was doing the work the best of my abilities and going all out staying late dedicating myself to Getting work more than done… Even on occasions, I Studied hard knew I was Right, Then Getting told I was Wrong! [BOOM].

I would come in and power through the work like it was nothing looking and hungry for more! Even feeling like I was doing great! When a Certain Projects Plans came back one time that I had to Redo because they were apparently wrong?

Turned Out They were Wrong, and I was Right the First Time? Really? I took it on the chin I swallowed that hard feeling down the first time, to keep going when it stunned my confidence…

Then, the Fact that when the plans came back wrong, and I was right I never got told… She kept it from me, why? The Guy that sat beside me had to say, he had to fix them…

Really, I was Just Trying my best at this and started not to enjoy what was going on around me, the fact that there were some bad feeling things I would have to do, didn’t feel right to me either…

Sometimes I felt she was huffing with us she would sigh and rub off her vibe, now I am a positive person most of the time and the vibe I was getting was not helping the whole situation… I mean even the Guy that sat next to me just packed up and left without telling anyone one day?

I thought yes this is my time to fill in those bigger Boots and get myself into a better position! Well, I talked to her about what the plan was going to be, did she need me to do any extra days or come in more to help or if I was going to stay on…

Right then and there she said to me and it broke my heart a bit, this was everything I worked for… For Her…. Up until that point, the reason I worked hard and done the extra time…

She Said she was doing Interviews and looking for someone else to fill both our spots, she said she would rather give someone else the Chance I had… Could I not Go Back to the Hotel and get the hours there… Really…? This was my dream she was crushing…

Wile, I was Doing this and Working hard to get the income I truly wanted, there was something I had noticed… Every other day or so an Amazon Parcel would get delivered to the office, and I would hastily open the door welcome the delivery driver with a warm smile and sign for the parcel…

This was going on the whole time I worked there, and I didn’t think anything of it at the time, but it was seeds being planted in my head over and over and over… I then shortly after Christmas time had somehow out of the blue, and I don’t know how this guy got on my snapchat talking about Amazon!

He was talking about how he was crushing it on there, and I could really relate to him because he was Scottish, and I’m From Northern Ireland! So, I kept watching like a Hawk and anytime when I got home looked at what he was doing… I noticed he had many different online businesses, but Amazon was the main one that he did…

On Snapchat every day, he would show how much he had made and it completely amazed me what he was doing on there… So much so that I kept watching he posted stories about all the income streams he had and what he was doing…

I was Super Curious at the time and interested in learning more about what he was really doing online, at the same time I saw what was happening with bitcoin as well and One of my friends had bought some and put a lot of money into it…

Now at the time, I did work on a computer Doing plans for Buildings and other things, But the Internet was a Grey area for me… I knew about how people were making money on the dark Webb and heard of people buying other things off the internet this way… Even Bitcoin I knew of but not that much…

So, when I really thought about the power of the internet I was unaware of how people were building an online business on it… regular people were doing this all the time though. Now the Dark web was not my thing No way would I support that, but a proper legitimate Business online…

Could that have been the answer I was looking for?

I was on Facebook one night and seen a Video, in fact, it was a live Video by Dean G and he was talking about who’s steering your ship? I thought to myself heck who is steering my ship? I didn’t think It was Certainly me at this point in my life I was going with the flow of the school system and working towards a Job with a Boss…

Well, I was Still in this Job looking for a fulltime income, getting my confidence crushed daily by my Boss, and working as a chef at the time flip I wasn’t doing anything fully committed what could it hurt trying to make this online thing work?

What Was the Plan of attack? Study Amazon… and Why this Guy had done so well for himself there. I went full out and bought his course on how to build a Real E-commerce business on Amazon!

He said Amazon Was his Baby, they had Amazon University that taught you how to set it all up and what to do, that was totally free to create and start! I was hooked…

Spending Many late nights immersed in learning and applying what I was learning on how to find profitable products. I walked to the Local Argos and picked up boxing pads, footballs, wheelies and other physical products to Sell on Amazon and make some other side income…

And you know something… I couldn’t Believe it! I was Selling on there too!

That’s when I discovered people were buying things from one place like the Disney Store or Best Buy Then Selling it on Amazon and making a profit! (WOW) I really wanted this to work for me, but it did take some time to figure out how to upload product’s, but I really want to tell you it was Super Hard…

But the Real Truth is I just made it hard for myself, it was way simpler than I could have ever imagined, I bought Startup things Like a Label Printer I didn’t need and stressed over how to print these labels to post the physical products to (FBA) Fulfilment By Amazon, that’s kind of like you just send everything you have to them and they post it to where it needs to go for a small fee…

I didn’t have a lot of money to buy a ton of products and the margins I was making where not going to give me the freedom I truly was looking for, I mean really… I could have built an empire for myself leveraging Amazon, I saw plenty of Great People doing Amazing at this Business Model It Worked!

But I didn’t have enough to buy in the vast amounts needed to start making the fulltime income I was looking for, So, while still watching this Guy Crushing it on Amazon I noticed the multiple things he was selling was software, and he had other things like an online shop called Shopify… Humm…

I had to investigate this deeper and find out what this was all about surely this game of posting and finding different products was not going to be the best thing for me to do while working and hustling for the little I could afford to make the profits I did…

When I did find out what a Shopify Store was I opened one right away… I found a ton of products and built out the whole thing in one night I don’t think I went to sleep that night. My friend said I was crazy and mad for not going to sleep but I was 110% determined to make this online Thing Work!

This is when I started learning more about what exactly drop shipping was… drop shipping is kind of like you sell something on your store or website and when someone buys you go buy it from the supplier and they post it directly to them… You don’t need to touch the product! Watt>>!!!

So By this point, I was getting hit with information overload! Listening to a ton of different Gurus trying to teach me what to do, I ended up making Niche Specific Store Heck I didn’t even have a clue what the hell a Niche was… But I made My Store A niche store…

Turns Out some of the most successful Shopify Websites are general Stores that’s what I started with, but this point I was in deep. I had been Making moves and Made a Print on demand T-shirt store surely, I could sell T-shirts…

Print on demand is kind of like when you sell a T-shirt with a design on it… You go and buy it and then get the supplier to Print the design then post it for you, so you don’t have a ton of t-shirts sitting around….

So, I was Spending all the money I could afford on Ads Facebook ads (ha-ha) I laugh now but I was so unaware then And OK I was doing some things Right… But Nowhere near what I needed to know to be playing this online game properly!

I started to make my own Personal Brand with logos and Branded T-shirts, hats the lot! But who would want to buy them? I still couldn’t Sell anything this way, Amazon was still ticking away for me, but I still Couldn’t get this Store off the Ground!

The Brand Was Called Paradise Tees and The Vision was to help others see the potential that the internet had for building a business online and really the opportunity I could see in it, the t-shirts where for people who wanted to be a part of this movement with me and really start their own thing too!

But no one Bought them! I think I sold possibly 5 t-shirts that where just general ones to family, then I bought 3 Branded ones to represent my brand, my gran Got a Hoodie for my uncle and my friend bought two they were definitely a work in progress let me tell you but hey I was making progress, that was the main thing, by this stage I’m about 3 months into my journey…

My Boss and I have the Nervous discussion around this time about if I am going to stay on with her, and she pretty much told me where to go…

So, one of the very last days I was in on the computer I decided to check my old University Email at Lunch and that was it, I Seen an email from this Guy who was working online full-time also who I was Following….

By this stage, I was fully committed to Finding out about this whole rabbit hole we call the Internet! This email was something about the challenge it was called… the message was talking about how you create the good life you want…

It was $1 to start so I signed up and thought this could be if I could finally learn how to Create to Good life using the power of the internet! So that was it I went Found myself a New Job as a Kitchen Porter… I worked hard there too, to pay my bills and do this as well…

Around this point, I was still figuring out how to sell my t-shirts while I still had pretty much no money extra to supplement much of my business expenses so far or a personal life, I mean there was a ton of things piling up on me I started to feel like I was drowning…

People in my new job were all for me but I don’t think they really knew what I was trying to explain to them… I dropped out of University after 6 years to make it to the point that I found out that the work was not for me… Or I just must have gotten a bad taste in my mouth after the whole experience…

I kept on Learning and applying… it was my Birthday four months into this Journey and I kept getting advertisements from a drop shipping course, I was going to buy it as I applied for the Academy Scholarship, but I wasn’t what it said It was far more than What I expected, and I couldn’t afford it…

Around this same time, I was blindly continuing with the challenge… and The Drop shipping business model was something I was still doing why? Because I didn’t have to touch or run, find and ship the physical products… Then the Guy Anton was talking about how you can set this Up… I remember he mentioned something about being an Affiliate…

He said you can Be an Affiliate selling other people’s products, for a Company like Nike and Sell Nike Stuff on your store If your store passed the certain regulations or guides Nike had in place, he planted a Seed in my head about Why compete with other clothing Brands when I could Just Sell Their Proven Brands…

My Store was still Going nowhere fast! I was Doing all these different things and still all over the place, I needed to focus and get clear on what I truly wanted to Do! I started searching out Affiliate Business Models and found a Guy that was Dead Beat Super Affiliate on YT…

I bought all this and everything he offered but to be honest I really failed hard, at this point I got very little money, Amazon Business, Shopify Store invested in crypto… and Amazon Associates Website on Pull up Bars I tried to rank on Google… man way I WAY over my head here…

So that was it. I was going through the Challenge and it was almost like my Vision was the Same I wanted to Help people see the potential of the Internet to create a Life of freedom where you can steer your own ship, and work hard for your Dream, not someone else!

I was Working at a Job in a Restaurant as a Kitchen Porter some shifts and others as a Chef, but I still was drowning, and I could cover rent and everything, but I just said that’s it I’m Dropping everything!

I closed the Store, took everything had in my room that was on Amazon and Gave it to charity… forgot about Bitcoin and decided this was it! This is what I am Doing! I pretty much took everything I had learned in the short 6 months of making this work online… I Knew what it was I was truly going to do!

I decided I was Going to Become Great at Internet Marketing… this is kind of like getting your message out the world to change the world in your own way! By selling products or services that are needed and useful by I was going to Align with a Great Company where I felt Like I fitted in…

I found a Powerful mentor and a coach who told me and showed me everything I needed to do, I got my own Standalone website, that I have the keys to, and I started to make to Right Kind of moves… The Give me a proven Path to Follow that if I put in the work would give me the results I was looking for…

This Training I use in Called the Challenge and everything that was presented in it was everything I had been searching for Right now I am Mastering Traffic people visiting your Site, Conversions people buying your products or Services, high-income skills needed to build a successful online Business.

I have learnt Strategic Product Selection that is just a fancy word for having a business model that has multiple products that complement each other…

Learning Core Skill sets that will take me to the next level in helping other people and business later to move online also…

From Starting the Challenge and really planting my flag in the ground and saying Building a full-time online business through selling other people’s products is the Key to Freedom… and it is only attainable through the challenge…

Why do I say this, well in going through the different business models I think Affiliate Marketing is the best place to Start because it’s the lowest risk, you don’t need to find products or handle support on things like customer Service…?

The Challenge has really changed my life from the inside out, I now only work for my own goals and work towards becoming a great marketer, I have activated my inner success mechanism and completely changed my mindset on the world…

Times when I would go out drinking I find myself totally immersed in my work, it truly makes me happy inside working towards my purpose. I really dug deep into myself to find out what I truly want out of life and am well on my way now to providing a lifestyle and income I can be proud of…

I always had a Vision of what I wanted in life, but it’s never been clearer, and it gets even clearer every day. Also, something I keep track of is what I learn I learn something new that I’m truly happy about every single day…

Something I never really go into was the Gym But right now I inspire to be like my mentors who have told me that going to the gym and breaking a sweat is a key part of unlocking your inner, Genius So this is something I have been doing now also…

My confidence now is a big part of my life and it only gets better the more that I train It and I remember doing live videos trying to tell my story at the start… I completely froze up! Hey, we all start somewhere and I’ve got way more confident on Video I love that Part of all this :-D

Best,
