About Me

My name is Michel Maling, and I am lucky enough to live in the beautiful coastal city Port Elizabeth in South Africa. I am in my forties, and as they say, life begins at 40.

I grew up in Johannesburg, but am thrilled to be out of the rat race and living in such a laid-back and friendly city. I have lived with my partner for more years than I care to count, and we have a lovely little girl who was born in 2006.

I am a dancing teacher, and I teach Ballet, Modern, Ballroom/Latin, and Hip Hop.  I am passionate about dance and promoting it within South Africa. I really love my profession and it is wonderful to see the children growing within your studio over the years.  I hope to be able to continue with my teaching well into my old age. I am also lucky enough to work with two wonderful friends, which makes the work even more fun.

My hobbies in my spare time are hiking, reading, scrapbooking, quilting, knitting, horse riding, Spanish dance, and ballroom dancing and watching a good epic movie.

I started studying internet marketing in June 2009, and find it very addictive. A new hobby for me at the time has turned into a small business on the side.  I am building my own affiliate marketing business, that will be sustainable and serve me well into my old age.

Over the years, I have discovered that the only way to make money long term online is to build your own online business. It takes time and patience but is also very rewarding.

I am a strong believer in taking action. Put all that you learn into action, as it is very easy to stay the learner and not the doer.

Internet Marketing and Making a Profit Online From Home

I know loads of people who would like to do this internet marketing thing as a full-time living, but it is not as easy as they make it out to be. It takes loads of time and persistence to get on the road to success.

The hardest thing for most people is to change their mindsets and their way of thinking.  The hardest thing for most people to accept is that there are no shortcuts.  If the site you visit says they can make you successful overnight, stay away.

This is my entry into the world of building websites and affiliate marketing, so here goes……..

My Blogs include the following:

Dancers Forum

Find a Laugh

The Disney Domain

Dance Dynamics PE

Cockatiels as Pets

Knitting for Profit

My Favourite Recipes

    • Sorry only saw this comment now. Wait until your site is indexed in the search engines and until you are getting traffic before monetizing. Google adsense is a good choice, but using Clickbank or Skadoodle is more lucrative.
