I’m Rob Cornish, live in North Cornwall, England and have made my living online since 2010.
For 10 years, I worked a 9-5 job (or more accurately 7-6) and was fortunate enough to be fairly successful working in London’s financial services industry.
However, I knew something was missing…
This is not to say that I didn’t enjoy my old job, I did. But I knew that it could never deliver me real independence.
So, in March 2010 I began experimenting online.
Coming from literally zero knowledge of the internet and how to make money on it, the first few months were a massive learning curve and also pretty frustrating.
But I kept at it.
In September 2010 I was confident enough in my progress to take the leap and go full time with my online business.
In May 2011 I launched my first major online product (in the stock market niche).
It ended up grossing over 6-figures in sales and was really the breakthrough I’d been searching for.
Since then I’ve developed my business further into digital products (PDF reports/ebooks, online courses, membership sites and software).
Most of these products I create myself (or in the case of software, pay outsourcers to create for me) and some of my income comes from affiliate marketing (i.e., promoting other people’s products in return for a commission).
I feel fortunate to be working for myself and running my online business.
It allows our family the freedom to live wherever we choose (we moved from London down here to Cornwall in 2014), plan our days, take holidays/vacations and see family and friends whenever we like.
I should say, you still have to work and work hard: The notion of simply pressing a couple of keys and watching the money roll in whilst sitting on the beach is 100% fantasy and if that’s what you’re looking for then you won’t get far.
But the work that is involved is more like fun (to me at least) plus the flexible lifestyle makes it a fantastic life overall.
Actually, for me at least, the lifestyle is far more motivating than the money.
How Can This Site Help You?
As I mentioned, I found the first few months of my online journey difficult and awash with failed ideas. Looking back I believe the main reason for this was I just couldn’t see through the “fog” of information overload.
So this blog started really as my personal online diary or journal. A way of me tracking my own progress and noting what was working and what wasn’t.
Over time it’s developed quite a bit and you’ll now find a lot of advice information that I wish I had known myself in the early days.
I hope you enjoy it.
All the best,
