How I Made My First $3,000 (and How You Can Replicate A System To Make Even $10,000 or More)

how i made my first ever 3000 dollars

Is it possible for you as a Nigerian to be in Nigerian and be making money from abroad?

I’m not just talking about money, I mean good money.

What I’m going to share with you made me my first $3,000 back in 2008.

Yes, back in 2008.

The good news is that you can use the same strategy to make your first (or even next) $10,000.

Today, I run 4 different hyper-successful companies that service clients OUTSIDE of Africa.

My most successful clients is a marketing agency that services coaches, consultants and professional services providers like dentists, chiropractors, therapist, etc.

So, what do we do for them?

We help them get high paying clients who happily pay premium fees so that can exponentially grow their revenue while maintaining a higher level of profit.

Today, we have clients from all over the world except from Africa who pay us tens of thousands of dollars to work with us.

We have experience profit, growth and are now scaling like crazy.

I’ve been featured on more than 20 top-ranked US and UK based podcasts.

Take a look at some of them...

My clients have been featured on some of the best and topmost news publications like Forbes, FOX, CNN, and many others.

My book has been bought and read by thousands of people in more than 20 countries.

It’s crazy, right?

Ya, it is!

I can go on because I’m yet to even scratch the surface as it relates to my result.

DON’T be intimidated, I will show you how to start getting clients from abroad who will pay you ‘good’ money’.

Now, when I say ‘good’ money, I’m not talking of $7, $97 or even $295.

Well, those are not bad money but what about $3,000 and even more?

I will CONFESS to you guys today…

When I got started, I took a BIG gamble.

Yes, a very, very big one.

I’m not sure if I should call it a risk, hence the word ‘gamble’.

I told my very first mentor, Dr Sunny Ojegbase, who is the 
owner and publisher of complete sports that I will prefer to get int’l clients who will pay me hard currencies.

It was a hard decision but I did it.

All I wanted was dollars, I wasn’t even sure how to get it.

Then I got my first client, a beautiful lady whose picture you are seeing.

Her name is Jessica Erewort, that's her pic you see.

Thank you Jessica!

She paid me my first ever $3,000 back in 2008.

Yes, 2008.

I didn’t have a Paypal account or even any US account at the time, she had to pay me through western union money transfer.

Then I got another client who paid me another $3,000.

Then another client.

Then another client.

It kept going on until I started getting clients who started paying to our dorm account.

Today, it’s a totally different thing for me and my companies.

There’s nothing special about me, you too can start exporting your products and services and get paid in dollars, euros, etc.

In fact, when I got started, the odds were completely against me.

When I say completely against me, I mean every single word of it...

I knew NO Nigerian who was doing what I attempted to do.

I didn’t have money. People say it takes money to make money, right? I had none of it.

I had the typical Nigerian accent. How will oyinbo hear or understand me when I talk?

My internet network was 2.5 G at the time. Now, we have 4G lite.

There was no way I could get paid even if I got 'oyinbo' client wanting to pay.

I was from Nigeria, a country perceived to be corrupt.

In 2008, America had one of her worst recession ever in history. Meaning, there was poverty in the US.

I can go on and on.

Despite all these challenges and more, I did it.

I entered the market and crushed it.

Yes, I made it.

I didn’t just do it, I did it in a great and big way.

See, most of all the excuses you give are bullshit.

I knew I had a lot of limitations, I still went ahead to do it.

These Oyinbos listen to me and take instructions from me.

When I talk, they shut up and listen.


Because they know I have something to offer.

Would you want to get international clients, consistently?

Is it possible for you to start making money from abroad?

I’m not just talking of 'anyhow' money, I mean HARD currencies.

You see, the economy is in shambles.

It is too risky to put all in your eggs in one country.

Unemployment is at the highest rate in history.

Businesses are folding, CEOs are becoming employees and people are losing their jobs and sources of livelihood.

Would you sit down and keep blaming the major political parties, PDP or APC?

See, politicians don’t care about you, they don’t have your time.

They only care about themselves.

Yesterday, someone asked me what the most important decision I ever made in business is?

I didn’t waste time, I told her straight that it was the decision to go international on time.

You see, I don’t depend on one country, I have customers from more than 27 countries.

Let me ask you a question, today…

Would you prefer to charge N150,000 or $2,000?

I have a short story to share.

A few years ago, I created a product and stamped 150,000 naira on it and guess what?

The product did well but some people were complaining that the price was high.

What did I do?

I completely stopped selling the products to Nigerians, instead I stamped $2,000 on it, that’s N720,000.

Now, I didn’t change anything on the product, it was the same exact product but I changed the market, the audience.

My revenue EXPLODED.

If you want to start getting clients abroad, you need to only believe in yourself and provide massive value to people like I provided for the lady you see in the image.

Those are the two critical things you need first.

If you get only 2 clients abroad and they pay you only $1,500, we are talking of 1,080,000 naira per month.

How will your life change if you do that and even much more?

It’s a simple thing to do, I mean, very simple thing to do.

Let me even shock you…

It is easier to get an international client paying you $2,000 than to get a Nigerian paying you N150,000.

I just released a BRAND new PLAYBOOK that shows you…

Step By Step How To Get International Clients Who Will Happily Pay You Tens of Thousands of Dollars (or In Any Currencies of Your Choice) Even…

Listen, you have a choice to either click the link and get a copy of you can just forget it and keep whinnying it.

I’m not sure, I might take the page down any moment from now but if you click here and still meet the page up, it means it is still available.

My charge to you now is to click the link and grab the offer and immediately start getting clients from abroad.

If you don’t, your competitors will do it.

And if you do it, you will sweep out your biggest competitors because you’ll be making way more money than them.

Go ahead and take action now.
