My Name Is Chukwudi Martins Maris, A Business Coach And One Of The Most Active Business Trainers In Africa.
On December 2017 I decided to stop depending on one person for food and money and made a move to a new destination with nothing.
No money, no job, no business, no idea of what to do.
I was living in my brothers house and every morning before going to work he will give me money to eat.
I managed like that till January 2018 and got uncomfortable with that.
I decided to join my friends who hawk ice cream to start pushing ice cream, I was making money though, at least I make 3k to 4k daily then.
But it was very stressful, imagine Hawking Ice cream under a scotching sun from morning to night. That's not the type of life I want for myself.
I believe that everyone has his passion and once you decide what you want all you have to do is to go for it.
As I was hawking I was also looking for something else to do.
One day I came across a post on jiji captioned (Supermarket attendant needed; 40k per month).
When I saw it, I jumped on the contact immediately and called the number attached to it, remember I was at Imo State then.
The lady said that the supermarket is at Lagos and that if I want to get the job I should come to Lagos and live close to the place.
I traveled to Lagos (to live with my uncle) the following week, and while I was going I was already calculating what I will be doing with the money I will be making there.
The same day I got to Lagos I called the lady and she invited me to the venue only for me to see that it's all these networkers that sell drugs.
I was very disappointed but their presentation made me to believe that I can make it when I join the business.
I decided to borrow money (#13,250) from two of my brothers to join the business promising them that I will pay them back the next month after making my first dollars from the business.
But at the end of the month I didn't make a dime apart from the gain I made from the products I was hawking.
Every night we would post posters up till 12am, and share fliers as well, some days we even sleep on the road till the next day.
We have slept beside a gutter, uncompleted buildings, bus stops, filling stations, churches etc.
But at the end of the month we still come out even more broke.
And the worst part of it is that we go to so many events without transport money, we beg passengers after entering a bus to pay for us and sometimes we're thrown out of the vehicle if no one agrees to pay.
Some days we enter more than 5 buses before we get to our destination because we're been thrown out.
On June 2018 after five months of doing it I discovered that there's no progress at all apart from the personal development I was getting from the trainers and presenters.
I decided to make a research and came across an opportunity that gives me access to be making my sales and everything online in Network Marketing.
Things got better then because I stopped hawking, posting posters and moving from one place to another without transport money.
I started making some good money in the health and wellness industry, till December 2021 when I joined a Telecom Network Marketing Business trending in Nigeria.
I built a lot of people and made millions of Naira from December 2019 to February 2021 when the company started having issues.
I then came across Affiliate Marketing training on March 2021, I paid for the training and attended, and I saw a lot of persons who are making as much as 500k weekly in Affiliate Marketing.
I was motivated by that and I decided to start Affiliate Marketing on June, and I made my first commission of $4 on June 2021.
After two Weeks I made over 200k from the business, 2months later I generated $2,000 and in 6 months I made over $6,000 (You can check the attached video).
And from then I don't lack money as I am consistently making over 10k to 25k per day from the business.
I know that I am just starting because I want to build a business that can be paying me more than 500k per day.
I will be teaching over 450 people in my two WhatsApp groups the same strategies I learnt that is now paying me a lot of money on a daily basis in Affiliate Marketing and how they can be making at least 250k per month even if they are hearing the word "Affiliate Marketing" for the first time.
