Join the Journey: From Rookie to Riches – Will I Prove the Doubters Wrong?


I’m Alison Blaire, and I’m thrilled to have you here with me as I embark on my journey from Rookie to Riches.

My goal is to quit my 9 to 5  job, make a full-time income online, and have the gift of time to make my dream life come true, and I am going to share the entire journey with you, here, on my blog!

Life is hard…it’s a shit show sometimes, trying to figure out how to pay the bills. Figuring out how to fund that much-needed vacation, working countless hours, commuting in traffic, trying to save for a house, and retirement.  It can be a bit overwhelming.

There are moments when it feels like you’re on a treadmill, exerting effort but not gaining ground.

So you do your best to be appreciative of the things you have, make the best of it, and keep trudging forward. And just when you think, this isn’t so bad, life happens.

Just yesterday I walked outside, ready to have a fun day off, heading to the farmers market. Walking towards the car, there was a pile of glass on the floor. Yayyy, the window of my car was smashed. It took a lot of strength to shift my mindset and not let it ruin my one day off, but a part of me just wanted to crawl up into a ball and cry.

I live in San Francisco, and unfortunately, getting your window smashed is a frequent occurrence. This is the 4th time this year this has happened and I have to say every time it does, it is devastating. 

Not only was the smallest, most expensive window smashed they took my prescription sun glasses, which of course, is just a material object, but an insanely expensive one to have to replace.

So now I am out about $1000.00, and the day just began.

Just when I was excited to pay off my credit card balance this month, the money is now going to pay for this window.

And I will have to go without replacing the prescription glasses for a few months because that is how long it will take to save up to replace those.

It’s days like these you start to question the world, and it feels like people suck, and it’s easy to fall into a downward spiral. Sometimes it gets so bad you get into that why bother state thinking, how can I ever get ahead?

Thankfully I didn’t stay in this headspace too long. I have been working on my mindset and the power of positive thinking and I know that this little obstacle in my way is not going to deter me. 

So, I taped a plastic bag over the window, cleaned out the glass, and went on about my day.  

It’s days like these, which there are a lot of that make me so dedicated to finding financial freedom.

Because let’s face it If I had a bunch of extra money in the bank, the sinking pit in my chest right now, the worry of how I am going to pay for this and what will be sacrificed, wouldn’t be there. 

This is why more than ever, I am dedicated to putting it all in and turning this side hustle into a full-time income. I want to be making so much money that I don’t have to worry about a smashed window, A ridiculous bill for that MRI I needed. I want enough money to pay for those stem cell shots that I need for my torn shoulder labrum and the osteoarthritis in my hip. I don’t want to worry about do I have enough for rent this month. Let alone, will I ever have enough for a family or to retire. 

Life is expensive, and with inflation, the cost of everything has skyrocketed. 

I went to buy eggs at the corner store yesterday and I almost had a heart attack when the clerk said, “That will be $13.45.” 

WHAT !!!! $13.45 for pasteurized eggs? This is crazy.

I don’t want to have to worry about these things. I want to be able to afford pasteurized eggs, organic food, vitamins and doctor bills.

I don’t want to be out for dinner and drinks with friends worrying about whether I can afford this.

I want to have a family, buy a house, be able to send them to college and pay for their wedding. 

I want to go on yoga retreats and nice vacations.

I am working so much in this endless loop, feeling like I am treading water going nowhere, drowning in student loan debt, and working so hard that I feel tired all the time.  I desperately need a vacation, and working OT to save for a brief vacation isn’t cutting it. 

I want to enjoy life, having time to spend with those I love and doing stuff I love to do. 

I feel like I am in constant need of a vacation from my life. And who wants to live a life you need a constant vacation from? Life should be enjoyable, and you should love what you do. 

And I have to say I would much rather be spending my days traveling from friends’ and families’ houses spending time with them, and from my computer creating blog posts and content and email marketing. Figuring out my next ad, and learning as much as I can to continue developing skill sets that will keep me earning income on my own schedule. 

I am over being chained to a desk and not drinking any water all day so I don’t have to pee, so my KPIs and metrics will be satisfactory. 

So what am I doing to change my current situation? What is it that I am dedicating all my spare time and money to? Affiliate marketing! 

I have joined Dean Holland’s Internet Profits Accelerator Program and I am dedicated to following his proven plan to go from beginner with no product, experience, list, or technical know-how to making a full-time income online.

Yup, affiliate marketing,  it’s a legit business, and tons of people are making real money doing it! 


Here I am finishing up my certification with Internet Profits Accelerator, a program created by Dean Holland. 

I am taking a chance and investing in this opportunity. 

Everyone thinks I am crazy and should be using this money to pay bills and get groceries, but the biggest wins have risk involved and I am willing to risk it all for my dream life.

I’m betting on myself and investing everything I can in the hope that my time and commitment will pay off. Can I follow a proven plan and go from Rookie to Riches? That’s what I’m determined to find out.

Investing in yourself pays the best interest! Don’t believe me, here is a clip from my mentor Dean: 


I recently read a book that mentions when Steve Jobs died, he regretted working so hard, and not spending time with the people he loved. So many people on their deathbeds have this realization. 

No one on their deathbed says they wished they worked harder, or took on more overtime. 

I don’t want to be one of those people who are on their deathbeds wishing they went big and fought for their dreams. 

I am going to give it all I got and put in the work.

So what do you think, think I am going to make it from rookie to riches? Think I have what it takes?

Only time will tell, but I have to say that I am no longer putting things off. I want the reward of creating a family and providing them with a wonderful life.

I am not going to be one of those people on my deathbed thinking back to my life and only playing memories of me working, saying to myself I wish I didn’t put everything off. 

Because I do it all the time. I say to myself, once you are in a good financial situation, you can have that family you always dreamed of and watch your children grow up.  

I want that family now. I want to have the time to play dress up and have tea parties, help my kids with their homework, have the time to cook nutritious meals, and have the money to pay for good ingredients and give them a great life, full of team sports, adventures, and memories or us laughing our butts off playing board games.

In order to make this dream a reality, I need to break free from the 9 to 5. I need to tap into an income stream that is not finite and dependent on how many hours I work. 

I must take action to change and create the life of dreams, and to make this happen, my commitment and discipline must be unwavering and I need to put in the consistent work. 

So here I am starting my journey, and I have chosen a mentor that has been in my exact shoes.

Dean Holland is my mentor and I am so grateful to be going on this journey with him. He is living proof that it’s possible to use affiliate marketing to make the dreams of financial freedom a reality. 

He created a new platform Affiliate Solutions and he is actually going through the entire process with us. 

He is teaching us his proven plan. How he quit his 9 to 5 and made millions online, and he has the double common awards to prove it! 

He didn’t have a proven plan back then, and his trials and tribulations got him into $60,000 of debt trying to crack the code of this affiliate marketing business.

But thankfully, he kept at it. He has been doing it for over a decade, and his failures and struggles are lessons learned, and he is willing to mentor me, and help others like me make their dreams into a reality.

So are you with me?
