Who Is Michael Burns?

Michael BurnsHere’s a little about me. I was born and raised in Nova Scotia, Canada in a small village by the Bay of Fundy (Morden, Nova Scotia), which had a population of about 500 at the time. At the age of 17, I joined the army where I spent a few years of my life. While in the army, I went on to specialize as a Reconnaissance Patrolman.

After leaving the Army, I wandered from one dead end job to another for a few years.

In 2001, I suffered a work place accident that required surgery and left me on workmen’s compensation for nearly 8 months of therapy and recovery.

This is where I got my first taste of online marketing in the paid-to-read email industry. I went on to create one of the largest ever paid-to-read email sites online (MikesPaid4Email.com), which made me over $2000 a day profit and had an Alexa ranking in the top 700 websites for over 18 months.

Due to over saturation of that industry, a 20x surge in competition, and a few technological issues that were out of my control, that business went belly up by the end of year 4.

I went back to work again. 🙁

Things went really bad for me for a spell after that. Maybe someday I’ll tell you about that also.

In 2007, I found myself working in the Northern Alberta oil patch as part of a frac crew. I was making decent money, $500 to $800 every single day. But, it was an exhausting schedule full of 12 – 14 hour days (not including the driving time) and I was absolutely miserable and exhausted.

I ended up quitting that job and going back to Internet Marketing to replace that income, because it is one of my very few real passions. So, needless to say, I was still working a job.

It didn’t happen quickly. It took a couple of years to do it. After trying many online network marketing opportunities. Just about every method you can think of, and after a few more hurdles, I eventually made it to where I am today.
