Today is the First Day of the Rest of My Life...

Hi, I'm Simon, but my friends call me Si. Very nice to meet you, and welcome to my blog! =)

Well, today is 2 years to the day I first started at Google. Is this why I decided to start my blog today? Partly...

You see, some of my colleagues and I have been talking about starting our own affiliate marketing business for a long time. As an Optimization Specialist in the Google AdWords department, I've helped hundreds of clients, including affiliate marketers, make a lot of money. So many people are doing it, well isn't it time that we also get a piece of the pie?

About a week ago, my good friend invited me to join his team of 2 other individuals in this business venture. They've already mapped out a plan, and I'm excited to jump on board. Check out this awesome compliment this guy gave me in his proposal to add me as a new member:

"... this guy needs no intro... he's been at Google longer than I have ... pulls more weight than entire teams... he's a badass... and i have no doubt we'll all get along just fine...."

Is that cool or what? I swear I didn't pay him to say all that...

So this is it - it's exactly the motivation I need to finally get started. I know for certain that there are tons of opportunity out there in the world of Internet Marketing, but I also know that this is a huge mountain to climb.

As the title of this blog says, today is the first day of the rest of my life. My quest begins now!
