Introduction: Today, I share a story that spans decades within a brief timeframe. Later, I’ll delve into details. Thirty years ago (1993), amid unemployment in New York City, a friend came to my house with a business offering the opportunity to generate “Residual Income.” This concept intrigued me: work once, generate continuous income, even in absence. It left a lasting impression, leading me back to the Dominican Republic to establish my multilevel business.

Multilevel and Accounting Era: Years of dedication and effort fueled the development of this opportunity. Simultaneously, while growing my multilevel business, I founded my accounting office in 1993. Over the next decade, it expanded, requiring more accountants, six in total, including myself. Working as an accountant, I invested time and money in my residual income business to free myself from the routine and commitments associated with clients facing tax situations, especially in the Dominican Republic, where tax complexities and client defenses complicated tax closures.

Transition to Affiliate Marketing: After years of effort and investment of time and money in my multilevel business, I ended up abandoning the idea; it wasn’t for me. In 2008, retaining the idea of residual income, I discovered online affiliate marketing, exploring, creating websites, delving into blogging, attempting to gain visibility in a high-traffic niche, etc. Without a mentor and due to resource constraints to buy the necessary tools, I ended up abandoning the idea of affiliate marketing.

Relocation to the British Virgin Islands: In 2010, I moved to the British Virgin Islands with my family. While my accounting office continued to operate, albeit not at the same level as before, of course. Once established in the BVI, I managed to lay the foundations that would guarantee me a pension from my current job and also managed to establish the foundations for social security. In my trajectory, I have managed to position myself among a limited number of salaried individuals earning over $90K per year. I highlight this because it serves to further explain why I venture into affiliate marketing. I hope that all those in a situation similar to mine can identify “The Trap” (The Trap is the title of my next book) in time, the trap we have placed ourselves in, and that they can also reflect and take action, break free from that routine, and have a happy retirement.

Financial Realities and Aspirations: Many share similar stories of income, savings, and pension plans. However, neither social security nor pensions can maintain current lifestyles; the cost of living is increasing faster than fixed incomes. For this reason, future costs tend to annihilate the income from pension plans and social security. Unlike this, many of us still have plans and aspirations to fulfill; it would be a good opportunity to ask ourselves when we will achieve them. I wonder when I will achieve it?, and have you ever wondered when you will achieve those postponed dreams and desires?

The Gap and Controversial Reality: Relying solely on pensions is not viable. Many people work with this as their ultimate goal, and I want to tell you that if you are one of those who have your hopes set on pensions and retirement plans, you are still in time to achieve something better. There is a gap between desires and reality; many who qualify for retirement at 65, even though that is their desire, cannot retire; they have to keep working to maintain their social status. Unlike them, whether they want to retire or not, there is a reality that forces the individual to have to retire, and that is that motor skills, mental agility, and many other factors affect their productivity, with the aggravation that modern times demand that the individual be in line with technology, which further aggravates the situation for those nearing 65. In other words, we enter what I call forced retirement due to performance incapacity. Anticipating this, and taking advantage of the fact that I still have three years to opt for retirement, my goal is to dedicate two to three hours a day to establish the foundations of my affiliate marketing business that will allow me to conquer those residual incomes that I have longed for.

Proven Mentorship and Cutting-Edge Affiliate System

So to achieve my goal, I have found my mentor, Mr. Dean Holland, and his mentorship program, That have made several million on the industry and have help thousands of many other entrepreneurs that have follow his guidance and mentorship. He has once again opened the opportunity for me to build my online business under his guidance. By the way, he has given me the opportunity to participate in a private group of people who have access to the AFFILIATE SYSTEM, which will allow us to stay ahead of the new requirements of Internet service providers.

I want to invite you to fallow my progress wile I achieve financial freedom and happily retired by residual income.

To your success,

Ezequiel Wells

  1. What a fascinating journey you have gone on, thank you so much for sharing. You bring up a lot of important points, pensions are often not enough to retire on and as we get older, many companies push you to retire, it is a scary thing, and who knows if social security will be around in the future. With all these uncertainties we must take control of our financial well-being, and affiliate marketing is a viable option, glad you have found Dean to guide you on your goals of creating an online business, look forward to going on this journey with you!

    1. Hi Alison.
      Thank you for your kind words, I completely agree that financial planning is crucial, especially with all the uncertainties we face. I’m excited to have Dean as a mentor and to embark on this adventure. I appreciate your support and look forward to sharing the successes that come along the way. Let’s go together on this journey toward financial success.
      All the best to you too.

  2. Ezequiel,
    I can relate. I tried MLMs not once but twice only to be disappointed. Then I moved on to insurance and marketing and that didn’t go so well. Finally I realized I needed to master marketing if I was going to get anywhere with an online business. It took me about 2 years to find a mentor that would deliver what they promised.

    I say all this to congratulate you for having made a wise chose picking Dean to be your mentor. Of all the mentors I’ve experienced, and I’ve had several, Dean has delivered on his promise and I fully trust him.

    Just follow Dean’s process and it will take you where you want to go.

    Thanks for sharing.

    1. Ezequiel, what a journey. I also got involved in MLM 2 times and both disasters. It’s also not possible any longer to live decent off a pension, and I only see that getting worse. It’s great that you’ve found a good mentor and program to help you. I’m a firm believer in mentors. It’s like the age old apprentice type relationship that has helped many people become successful in many fields. wish you success and look forward to your posts!

      1. Hi Denny
        Thank you so much for sharing your experiences, I agree, that finding a good mentor is key to success in the affiliate marketing arena, and the program has made a significant difference. I appreciate your well-wishes.
        Wishing you success as well.

    2. Hi CJ
      Your kind words about Dean and your trust in him mean a lot. I’m excited about the opportunity to learn and grow under his guidance. Your encouragement is appreciated, and I’ll definitely follow Dean’s process. Thanks again for your support.
      I wish you all the best in your journey.

  3. I defiantly have to agree that pensions and retirement plans aren’t the answer . For me personally I have had to cash out my 401k and Roth IRA so many times to just stay above water there is not much left. “The Trap” sounds interesting keep me in the loop .

    1. Hi Jon,
      I’m sorry to hear that you had to withdraw funds from your 401(k) and Roth IRA. I suppose you must have had a very good reason to do so, and I think you shouldn’t regret the fact but rather be thankful for having something to fall back on. However, what I believe is that we should be prepared for unforeseen circumstances, no matter how significant they may be. That’s why I think we shouldn’t put all our trust in pensions and retirement plans.
      I wish you all the best in your journey,
      Ezequiel Wells

  4. Ahh! the MLM world of the 90’s! (we’re ageing ourselves here but no matter!)
    I did the same thing, the unfortunate thing about the MLM scenario was that the up-level wanted to include me because of the skills I was bringing to the table: being able to talk in front of several hundred people or even interviews, etc…. the unfortunate thing was that I was always left “holding the bag” and without any of the financial windfall that should have gone my way.
    Having said that, I did get out of it something even more valuable: experience!

  5. Ezequiel, thank you so much for this post. As a business owner myself as well as a shop foreman at another job, I can see that the world has a way of forcing the older generation out of certain areas while trying to replace them with a newer generation that has less experience. One thing that I have learned through Dean being my mentor, is you can teach an old dog new tricks… I’m an example. Each day that passes brings the reality of the need for an income stream in which I control and not someone that can show you the door at any given moment. Keep pushing forwards with the Journey ahead, Success is around the corner!

  6. What you said is so true. Fixed income just can’t catch up with the cost of living. To make things worse, inflation seems to be getting out of hand nowadays.

    In my country, people are working even in their 70s.

    The mainstream media like to paint it as “they want to work in order to keep themselves active”.

    I don’t really buy that. There are so many ways to keep yourself active, like pursuing the hobbies that you actually enjoy.

    I believe most people work in their 70s, not because they “want to keep active”, but because they have no choice.

  7. Like many others, I’ve been trying my luck with MLM as well. These days I think it’s a horrible business. There’s no way everybody joining can do well.

    Afiliate marketing is a legit business model though, so good choice!

    1. Hi Katrin
      Thank you for your comments and yes, it’s true that not everyone succeeds in such models. I’ve found affiliate marketing to be a better fit for me especially with the mentorship support that we have with Dean Holland and his team.
      I wish you all the Best in your Journey.

  8. Ezequiel, your post for me that is 45 years old is a good warning of what is about to come. I built a small property portfolio in the UK and this is my retirement plan. As I still have 20 years left, I want my affiliate system to fund a few more properties.
    I was in MLM too, and their training seminars and the people I met there were great. Although I didn’t earn money there I have some good memories and skills.
    You mention mentors as a way to succeed. I strongly agree, I had a few mentors while I was building my portfolio, and their expertise helped me to avoid costly mistakes. This is why I signed up with Dean, as he achieved what I want to accomplish.
    All the best.

    1. Hello Tom,
      You mentioned your age is 45, and that reminds me of when I was doing MLM. At that time, I was 35, and my goal was to retire when I reach 45, so now, I’m 17 years behind. What actually happened is that I left behind the MLM and, I focused on my current job, which provides me good income, and I forgot to build adside something for myself, something of my own. Don’t let that happen to you. Thanks for your comments, I wish you all the best on your journey.

    2. Hi Tom,
      Thank you for your comment, At age of 35 I was planning to retire at 45, Now I am 62, that mean 17 year behind the time I suppose to be retired. I dont even realise that the time will passed so fas. What actually happened is that I found a good Job and I forgot build something for myself, something of my own. Don’t let that happen to you. I wish you all the best on your journey.

  9. Ezequiel, It is commendable that you have tried so much and over a long period of time. You are a testament to ‘keep going’. Now you have Dean and his excellent mentorship. Now it’s your time, now you can make the life and business you want. I wish you great success and look forward a to what happens next. Thanks, Atif

    1. Hi Atif
      Thank you so much, I truly appreciate your kind words and encouragement. Having Dean and his team as a mentor has been a game-changer, and I’m excited about the possibilities ahead, and I’m grateful for the journey so far.
