Learn how this full time manager built an online business while working it part time.
Victor Paredes has been the general manager of an automobile shop in Texas for 24 years and was looking for a challenge. He loves his job, but he wanted to challenge himself to branch out and do more than just his normal nine to five because he wanted to grow more. He started in online affiliate marketing on the side and found himself learning from other affiliate marketers from Youtube on how to become successful. He started learning the ins and outs of affiliate marketing as he went along and soon enough, created a Youtube channel and was making videos himself. We recently interviewed him on the Wake Up Legendary show to hear how he balances his nine to five job with his affiliate marketing side business and finds success in both.
For Victor, Youtube was the last thing people thought he would find success in, but it’s become his #1 source of traffic. He has over 360 videos and over 123,000 subscribers. He also uses his Youtube channel in his business for motivation for his team and to help with their training. All of his employees are subscribed to his Youtube channel. One great thing Victor loves about his working with his affiliate marketing business and his 9-5 combined is that he can choose when to retire. “The plan is to not retire right away but to retire when I choose to retire,” Victor said. He loves working both jobs and still has time to spend with his family.

Victor said that one thing that stands out to him the most in his affiliate marketing business is the growth he’s had with the people he’s connected with. He’s connected with a lot of inspirational people and not just the super affiliates but also the people who are just getting started in the Legendary community. “I have the best of worlds. I still am able to go to a job and interact with people on a one on one basis and I have my online business where I’m learning so much, and I’ve made some incredible relationships online with people that I never would have met had I not decided to start an online business,” Victor said. He says that it has helped him grow more by supporting other people and have others show the same support for him.
Victor says that you shouldn’t be ashamed or embarrassed about what you’re trying to do. “Don’t ever quit, chase your dream, go after it, hold yourself accountable, make a commitment, verbalize it to yourself. Make a commitment that you are gonna see it through and then if you don’t you’re lying to yourself and that’s the worst thing that can happen,”Victor said. People now ask Victor for advice with their online business now and he says that has really stood out to him. Now he gets to help other people grow that are in the same position he used to be in not too long ago.
One message Victor gives is to never give up. “Don’t ever quit, chase your dream, go after it, hold yourself accountable, make a commitment, verbalize it to yourself. Make a commitment that you are gonna see it through and then if you don’t you’re lying to yourself and that’s the worst thing that can happen,” Victor said. If you run into hardships and obstacles, you can overcome them with the right support from your community. He says to find a mentor or a program like the ones we offer at Legendary Marketer, that can help guide you in the right direction when you are feeling stuck. “If you have a mentor there’s no reason anybody can’t get results unless they decide to quit,” Victor said.
When it comes to creating an online business, it doesn’t have to be all or nothing. It’s something you can ease into and do part time and still get somewhere. Victor is an example of that.
