Let me introduce myself, I am Peggy Uhal, and I live in Xenia, Ohio with my husband, Howard, and Alice (our 4 year old Belgiun Malinois).
I am fairly confident that if you asked anyone who knows me they would describe me as a giver. For as long as I can remember even as a kid, I have wanted to help my friends with whatever emotional dilemma they were having. I even taught a few of my friends how to bowl. I wanted to go on to be a teacher, but when I graduated from high school my parents didn’t feel they could help me with the financial side of a college education, so I went to work.
Then as a young adult, I worked at American Red Cross and was able to participate in their disaster services program, working flood disasters which were fairly frequent in the town I lived in. It was such a rewarding experience I started to encourage my boys to learn the value of giving. I brought them into the office during the summer and had them volunteer whenever they could.
Later when I was older I volunteered at a children’s hospital. Initially just in their volunteer office and then I recognized a need I could help fill. I developed a 501(c)3 organization that, with the help of the local bead society, taught nurses and the hospitalized children how to create jewelry.
An Entrepreneur? . . . Maybe
I had another driving need throughout my life; to be self employed, but the reality of being a single parent and having little money available to invest, I realized I could only participate in business opportunities while maintaining a full-time job.
I tried lots of things, selling my mugs at dog shows, jewelry at craft shows, participating in small franchises, MLM’s, the works. As it turns out I only had one fairly successful franchise. Primarily my job was to bring in franchisee’s within my territory, at that time south Texas. I found I was good at selling and training the new franchises. Unfortunately after a while it was clear that the corporation was taking the company in a direction I knew would fail in the long run so I sold my business. Another dream hit the dust.
Never Give Up, Never Surrender!
I was familiar with computers even as far back as its DOS days. So I was excited when the Internet came along with so many possibilities.
My first online business attempt was an e commerce store selling romantic gifts. (All G-rated mind you!) This was back in the late 90’s.
I think my store would have done okay if the banking and shipping infrastructures had been more developed. As it turned out if a sale happened and the customer claimed they did not get their order, the bank automatically assumed the online merchant committed a fraudulent sale and basically forced the store to shut down. After a couple of those claims that was the end of that dream.
Fast forward a few years to the early 2000s which is when I first heard of affiliate marketing as a business opportunity. I had purchased a few PLR books to sell, but for me, understanding what I could sell and what the difference was between a PLR, MMR or LMNOP (just kidding!), it was just too hard to understand. On top of that, having each seller establishing their own YES and NO rules caused me to be too afraid to try to sell any digital product.
So now it’s back to e commerce. This time, with some encouragement from a good friend I started selling on Amazon. I brought in products wholesale and started packaging them and reselling them. All was great for the first few years but as Amazon shopping grew the big brands moved in and small sellers like myself were pushed out. Well another business bites the dust.
Not So Long Ago
Obviously, by now you can see that I am fairly resilient, yes? So just a week or so ago I reintroduced myself to affiliate marking and its great potential and I purchased several great marketing and business program series, some for resell and a couple with a master rights of ownership.
Now all of a sudden, I found myself floundering again, trying to figure out where to go from here. Luckily, the publisher of these marketing programs, brought to me the lifeline I needed.
My New Journey
This new program is well done and is providing exact, step by step video lessons that gives me a level of confidence I have not felt in a long time. I want to share my journey with you. I am confident that this is one online business opportunity that will make a difference in my life . . and yours if you choose it.

Wishing you all the success,
