Start Here!

Welcome to!

If you’re here, then that means you have a strong desire to learn and understand what makes online businesses tick. Maybe you’re looking to fund some world travels, or maybe you just want to fire your boss and work from home. Either way, I can share with you some training that will be an eye opener for you.

My name’s Eric, and I want to pass on to you all the training I’ve received so that building your own successful online business can become your reality. I want to share with you the tools needed to build a successful website that will grow consistent traffic organically. I’ll share with you the training so you can turn this traffic into consistent monthly revenue.

A Little About Me

I started my journey just like you. A firefighter and paramedic for 15+ years, I didn’t come from some a background building websites. As you can tell from my picture, I absolutely love to travel. Everyone who knows me knows I’m dead-set on seeing all the beauty this world has to offer in my lifetime. With that in mind, I started researching how to build a business online that could travel with me.

I did my research, and found an online community and training platform that blew me away. No schemes, no recruiting, no upsells, just straightforward training & mentorship that delivers. I got started and never looked back.

Out of 875,000+ members to date in the Wealthy Affiliate community, I’m fortunate enough to be ranked in the top 25 with the rank of Ambassador. I’ve helped many people get their start building their business right with this platform.

With the right training and mentors, coupled with a community that helps every step of the way, creating a consistent revenue online can be a part of your reality. I’d love to show you how to do this for yourself.


If you’re serious about taking on this training, then your very first task is to create your free starter account. Watch the video below and see exactly how this works. There’s no payment or credit card needed. This is a test drive to see if this training is for you. You don’t need to have a product to push, or any website, or any experience. That’s what the training is for.  This is the same step I took when I got started. I never looked back and neither will you.


Everything I’ve built with this website is a result of the training and mentorship I’ve received at Wealthy Affiliate. If you’d like to stay up to speed with articles and reviews I cover here to see the practical side of the training you’ll be going through, then send over your email address in the form below and I’ll send you one back along with my contact info.

I’ll also include 2 special bonuses to make it worth your while.

  • I’ll include a vital training lesson on the Customer Purchase Lifecycle every budding entrepreneur should know and understand. This was especially eye opening for me and I’m sure it will be for you too.
  • Along with it, you’ll receive a video tutorial training I put together on the perfect blog post structure to engage your readers right away and keep their eyes on your pages longer. If you want to build your traffic, improve your bounce rate, and raise your Google rank, this is a must have.

Once you have these 2 training bonuses you’ll wonder how you survived for so long without them.

Being able to see where you’re headed is vital to your success. Did you know that those who have a concrete visualization of where their training is taking them are a whopping 88% more successful in completing that training and meeting their goals? Again, this step is completely optional, but staying up to speed with the new content here can give you that helpful glimpse of where your training can take you.

Where You're Headed
Where You're At

Real Online Business vs. “Hype Machines"

I also want to make sure I set the right tone here before we go much further.

This is not a get rich quick scheme!

Have you seen those opportunities that circulate all over social media and the internet? Videos filled with beach scenes and fast cars with ridiculous claims of people making 6 figures in 90 days after joining “fail-proof" systems that “do 90% of the work for you"?

I’m sorry. You’re not getting paid tonight. You’re not waking up on a pile of money. But you and your common sense already knew that.

Don't fall for this kind of hype!

Real Business Involves Real Work

You’re tired of those online schemes. If all you had to do to be successful in online business was enroll into a DFY (Done For You) system that does 90% of the work and then sit back and cash checks, EVERYONE would be doing this already.

In the reviews section of this site I not only review popular tools for your online business, but I also review these “too good to be true" opportunities and do my best to expose the ones that are truly all hype. Is there an opportunity circulating online that you’d like me to review? Let me know and I will.

Common sense tells you these “opportunities" are all hype. In addition, they’re also filled with so many upsells that you end up spending a fortune before you get to any actual training. Wealthy Affiliate cuts right to the chase and delivers real training. Less hype. More substance.

No one succeeds doing 10% of the work needed.

The Reality of Online Business Success

The fact of the matter is, you need straightforward training and consistent, hard work to succeed online. Unless you’re a company with a staff of hired personnel, you don’t build a website from scratch and make thousands the first month. But with the right training, you can make full time income online your reality.


If you’re looking for a get rich quick scheme, hit the back button. Real traffic takes time to generate, and it’s with that organic traffic that you have potential for consistent revenue.

But if you’re ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work, then creating your free account is the first of many great steps you’re now taking towards your success.

Your Next Task

So what is at the core of building an online business that creates consistent monthly revenue for you every month?

It’s acquiring a basic understanding of affiliate marketing and understanding how to put those fundamentals into practice. It’s time to make the internet a tool that works for you.

    I really love how you have marketed your website – catering to people who want to work from home (on their laptops). There is a large demand, which means a high response rate. I feel you have done a great job encapsulating the philosophy behind the concept. You have provided very rich detail on objectives – i.e., building trafic/ranking and showing how to attain them – which is very important. Great job on the delivery of your content. It is not easy to take a concept and concise it, making it legible for all to understand. When a concept is introduced, for many, it can be intimidating and quite overwhelming; you have definitely achieved the opposite. Very impressive site! I can learn a lot from you !

    • Eric Cantu says:

    Great job Eric,

  • JT says:

    Hey Eric,
    great post, very relatable. I have been suckered by those scamsters myself, buying that sales pitch instead of a useful product. Your three “building blocks” of online business make a lot of sense and I think they are absolutely crucial for anyone who’s after long-term success.
    Thanks for sharing & Keep up the good work,

    • Eric Cantu says:

      Way too many “too good to be true” opportunities out there, JT. For myself, getting the training and doing the actual work always pays off, especially when you can have a free try at it.

      Let me know if you need anything at all! Good Luck!

  • Tom Lawrence says:

      Always glad to get good information out there. There are so many out there like you and me and all we need sometimes is to get in front of the RIGHT opportunity. It takes some work and the ability to follow good training, but it’s worth it!

      Let me know if i can ever be of help! Thanks!

  • Mattia says:

  • Kipps says:

    Time freedom and freedom from working under a boss, freedom to travel yet still earning lucrative income all these are no more a fairy tale. It is interesting to have learned that you have also being scammed like me. Seems like all of us who wanted financial freedom through online marketing are doomed to be scammed at least once before we find a legitimate and honest affiliate platform like Wealthy Affiliate. There are a few lucky ones who happen to stumble on this great community right at the moment they decided to start an online business. I, for one, was not lucky enough. I have gone through a lot of trial and errors chasing for any shiny object on the Internet. At last, I came across this wonderful platform called Wealthy Affiliate and since then I never look back. I am now extremely satisfied with my new life and new found freedom at Wealthy Affiliate.

    • Eric Cantu says:

      Very true. I feel like we all get to where we’re supposed to go at the time we are ready to get there. And yes it sometimes hurts to have a failure or a misstep, but the successful person turns those failures into building blocks that get him or her to their next achievement. Glad you are doing so well with WA, Kipps! If you ever need anything at all feel free to message me!

      Thank you so much for the great comment!
