My name is Matthew Bredel and as of March, 2007, I am a full-time, work-at-home internet marketer.
For close to 10 years, I worked for a defense company as an electrical engineer until one day I had the need (and desire) for more to pay the rising mortgages, new car payments, kids and unexpected medical bills.
I found a $50 eBook and began my internet marketing career…sort of!
The first few months I lost my shirt! I did everything wrong and really tried to re-invent the internet marketing wheel. Big mistake!
But I learned from my mistakes and focused on what works! By the end of my 3rd month as a part-time internet marketer (meaning, between the hours of 7-9pm at night…after work, dinner and playing with the kids), I made my first sale…this sale made me $7.50…I spent over $70 in PPC to market it. It was still a huge success.
I took from what I learned on this and refined my strategies. By the end of month 4, I made over $100 total.
Month 6: $1000
Month 9: $3000
Month 12: $7000
On month twelve, I quit my day job.
Since then, I am making a career out of internet marketing. I have always been an educator at heart, though. Because of this, my focus has always been teaching others from what I have learned during my own trials and tribulations as an online entrepreneur.
I created TheWebReviewer.com (Home Based Business Reviews) to provide visitors insights on which online products and programs to join, and which ones to avoid.
I later created NetWebVideo.com (Home Based Business Training) to teach the skills I have developed over the years and demonstrate each step of making money online one video at a time.
And finally there is my blog, MatthewBredel.com (Home Based Business Done Right!). Here, I express my current thoughts, show my current techniques and report on current industry related news (at least two times per week). Some of my best content can be found at MatthewBredel.com and it is always free to the public.
I currently live in San Diego, California with my wife and three kids. I am currently 33 years old.
