This was a question I posed back in 2017 when I was doing a 30 Day FB Live Challenge. Let’s get this going again! I challenge you content creators out there to do a video and blog post and speak about this. I can’t wait to see what you come up with! Be sure to give me the link to your content in the comments so I can check it out!
Let’s go back to the 4th Grade and I’ll tell you about my most influential teacher Sister Mark.
At that young age, she was the first person to challenge me and tell me not everything I did was perfect. Her influence was my first wake up call that you can’t just glide to get by. She called things as they were, and as I may not have liked it at the time, it was what I needed and now I’d like to thank her in this blog post and here is the video I did on Facebook in 2017. I hope you enjoy! Good luck in the challenge!

Around February of 2005 our 10khits4unow Team began offering a package called Solutions. This offer the user Hosting, Tracking, Autoresponders, and even workshop training to put it all together (In addition to a great Traffic Exchange). We had assembled a staff to handle the various tasks. My job was to co-ordinate all activities, be the face of the organization in webinars and other platforms, and be one of the regular trainers. This worked very well and we were soon known for having one of the best value adds of any traffic exchange. I continued to work with Doug Williams as an affiliate in his programs, and did meetings and trainings for him as well as one of his top earners and team builders. Team 10k as we were known there. A
to today’s Team Massive Success.
Fast forward now to the Summer of 2007 and the death of Mr. Williams. This came as a shock to many as it was a sudden heart attack. To my surprise, the family offered his programs to me at a good price to add to my portfolio. They wanted his legacy to continue and it was hard to turn this offer down. After consulting with my partners, we inked the deal and merged everything into the Solutions Family of Programs LLC portfolio. (Solutions is what we called our hosting plan.)
The portfolio of programs included SeoSquid (Hosting Platform and the former 3 Step program. The name change was unfortunate), Moneylegs, BlogEstates (A newer creation), A pixel program that died pretty quick, and some famous TE Names like ViralClassAds, Clickaholics, TsunamiGold, and maybe even a few I forgot.
Now the question was, how do you run 8+ programs effectively? We soon found out the membership had dried up in some, money was owed in a few, and some of the programming/databases were in disarray and difficult to repair. We had to make some tough decisions and did what we could. I’m proud that we paid the Williams Family 100%, paid commissions on time, and still had profits to split among the partners. I believe with some additional vision and programming power we could have gone to an even higher level, but for me, it was not meant to be. We really bit off a lot taking all this on, and not everyone I worked with came to work everyday with the right spirit. I’ll leave it at that.
When my daughter started having seizures in 2007 and other pressures came into play; I sold my half of the business to a party I will not mention here. They made one payment to me and then stopped abruptly, even after signing an agreement! The sad part was this person programmed for us, knew what we had, and was aware of the pros and the cons of the portfolio. This really soured me on online business. I mean, I invented and created 10k and put years of blood, sweat, and tears into it. I was asked to come back into the fold but I just couldn’t so I let the team do their thing and just became a super affiliate for them and others. I needed time to thing about my next move. I mean, I had lost thousands of dollars in this deal and just needed to get my head straight. I had to go back to work in retail which was a real bummer too. In time, I would be back as an owner, in the meantime I had some fun just being a really good affiliate and revving up the offline career. Tune in next week for the comeback story!

It is now March 8th 2005. The following is going on in the world. My daughter turned 2 and I am a stay at home internet marketing dad! My son was 7 and in 2nd grade. In the world…
The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of March people in US were listening to Candy Shop by 50 Cent. In UK Over And Over by Nelly featuring Tim McGraw was in the top 5 hits.
The Good Humor Man, directed by Tenney Fairchild, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2005 while The Killing Club by Marcie Walsh with Michael Malone was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Contender. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Doom RPG or Club Penguin.
The People’s Republic of China ratifies an anti-secession law, aimed at preventing Taiwan from declaring independence.
10khits4unow merged with 10khits4u creating the first self replicating lead capture pages in the Traffic Exchange Industry!
We were happy to have a new design and now we did not look like all the other Harland Script sites so we set ourselves apart as we set our course for our first 25000 members (3776 in the picture above)! 10khits4unow would reign supreme in the TE industry for the next few years. We had weekly Sunday Meetings sometimes exceeding 100+ in our Conference Room. I was working closely with Doug Williams from 3Step and Moneylegs and earning a nice side income with that. This proved that you could earn additional income streams from creating a marketing funnel without actually sending the traffic to these extra earning spots. The principle still works and carries on at Trafficleads2incomeVM. So, was this too good to be true? Was there trouble ahead? Tune in next time to find out!
