So . . Wow, the journey begins

My 1st ever blog, and why ? Quite simply I want to build a business online and I want to help others do the same.

Let me explain my short story. 12 months ago I realised finally that if you want to be successful you are going to have to work for it, Hell yeah you will ! My name is Dean Holland and I am 24 years old and I’ve spent far too many years waiting for the cash to find me, guess what … Yep, it ain’t happened.

My online earnigs to date: $0 . . This is where it starts

So now Im going after the success with passion and determination, and I know im going to acheive it. There you go, I’ve declared it live online that I will be an online success.

So let me set my first goal- To acheive $1 earnings online.

Let me tell you, after 12 months of learning online skills but getting nowhere I needed a kick up the backside. And the last 3 days gave it me good. I attended a seminar in London UK as a VIP guest of Alex Jeffrey’s, If you dont know this guy go google him right now ! Alex I want to personally thankyou, you are passionate to the heart about what you do and extremely inspirational. After meeting you and soon to be moving forward with you I know my life really is gunna change. Cheers buddy !

Im going to document my journey on this blog, I hope many people will follow my steps and acheive your goals also.

OMG ! I have just had a mad great thought pop into my mind whilst typing this, what a magic idea. Look honestly, come visit my blog again soon. I need to go away and put this plan into action, you are going to benefit from it. Probably a lot more than you think. Cant believe how that just happened, crazy !

Please post your comments, I would love to hear from people in my situation that are wanting to start an online business. Lets do it !

  4. Hi Dean,

    I remember having a pint with you at the bar on the weekend, was good to meet you, and even better to see that you’ve already taken action and got your blog set up, way to go! 🙂

    don’t forget to check out for a bunch of blog video tutorials, including which plugins I use and stuff like that.

    and feel free to give me a shout if you get stuck on anything.

  5. oh, one quickie Dean, I’d recommend changing your permalinks structure to a more SEO friendly one.
    there’s a video for it on BlogTactics on the videos page and grab the “Deans Permalinks Migration” pluging from the plugins page.

    check all the clams on your oil rig algae 🙂

    peace – alex

  11. […] Like you saw in the video, Dean was not always successful. Like most of us, he too started small and after many years of failing to make any money, started experiencing success in around 2008 after he started a blog. You can read his first blog post here. […]
