About Scott


Scott Newkirk

Hello there, and welcome to A Work At Home Business.

My name is Scott Newkirk, and I’m the proud owner of this website.

I’m your typical laid-back and chill guy that’s into computers, technology, and video games.

Also, I’m a giant walking dead fan, as you can probably tell from the shirt I’m wearing, lol.

However, what I’m most passionate about more than ANYTHING is making money online.

To date, I’ve tried everything from Herbalife, SMC, Assembling crafts from home, Multi-Level Marketing (MLM), and Ameriplan.

You name it; I’ve more than likely tried it at some point in time.

I’m sure there are many others that I’m forgetting.

However, these are the ones that stick out in my head the most.

Read on to learn more about me and how I eventually find the light at the end of the tunnel.

A Little More About Me


I’m a geek at heart, and analytics and data excite me, lol.

I’ve NEVER cared much for working for the man as I’ve always believed you could make so much more $$$ working for yourself.

I like to stay active and enjoy riding bikes, going on walks, and enjoying nature.

As mentioned earlier, I’ve joined multiple companies/ opportunities in the past.

However, none of them worked out, and nine times out of 10, I ended up losing more than I initially invested.

Therefore, like many other people, I became a victim of several work-from-home scams.

I was living on a limited budget and only working part-time at my current job.

So, as you can imagine, this set me back and hindered me from finding any real opportunities.

I’m sure many of you can relate to my story and possibly have gone through something similar to mine.

In the next few minutes, I’ll share how doing a ton of research and talking to the right people led me to find the right program.

Furthermore, I’ll also show you how I make a full time living from the comfort of my home with my desktop computer.

Are you guys ready?

How I Got Started Online


Working from home

How I initially found my start online when I was researching the company Ameriplan.

Ameriplan is an MLM company that has been around for over 20 years.

The company seemed legit, and their compensation plan was solid.

However, their business model revolves around recruiting.

I’ve always sucked at recruiting people.

Also, I wasn’t comfortable calling strangers on the phone to sell them discounted health plans.

Therefore, this had me skeptical, and I decided to do some digging.

After doing research, I found a previous member of Ameriplan who shared the same concerns as I did.

After I read about his experience with the company, I knew that Ameriplan wasn’t for me.

I encourage you to continue reading to discover how I finally made my first bit of money online.

Let’s continue moving forward.

Are you guys still following me?

How I Finally Made Money Online


After taking the plunge and joining yet another make-money-online opportunity, I was eager to check it out and see how it worked.

Can you guys blame me, though?

Instead of the usual recruiting BS that 99% of other programs consisted of, this one was different.

Also, I didn’t have to call people on the phone or try to sell them a product that I knew nothing about.

This company taught you how to build a website, create content, and learn how to get ranked in search engines.

Until now, I’ve never done this type of work, so this was new to me.

Since I’m a geek anyway and always looking to learn something new, I started going through the training.

However, to make this work, it would take three things to be successful.

They are as follows

  • The ability to read and follow directions
  • Willing to learn a new skill
  • Lots of time and hard work

Since I had nothing but time on my hands due to being laid off, I figured, why not?

Even though I struggled quite a bit in the beginning and didn’t make money for several months, that didn’t stop me.

After putting in countless hours of work and learning as much as I could, I made my first sale.

It was only $8.

However, at the time it felt like I hit the lottery, lol.

As I continued to work at it, my income slowly started to increase each month.

After six months, I eventually made it to earn a full time income.

What You Can Expect From This Website


I created this website as a means for you guys to follow along in my journey o make money online.

Additionally, I’m sure many of you can relate to the struggles that I experienced when I first started many years ago.

By sharing the experiences I’ve had with multiple companies online, I hope to alleviate any concerns you may have about joining a particular program.

Due to my massive experience online, I can usually tell within a few minutes whether a company is worth your time or not.

I’ll do my absolute best to provide you guys with detailed information about the most prominent companies online that are worth checking out.

Got a company or product that you’d like me to review?

I’d be more than happy to research it for you and write a detailed review about it.

Shoot me an email here and let’s talk.

I hope you were able to get to know me a little better and help you make the right business decision for you and your family.

I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible and helping you out in any way I can.

My name is Scott Newkirk and it’s a pleasure to make your acquaintance.
