About Scotty Newkirk

Scotty Newkirk

Hello there & welcome to Scottynewkirk.com

How is everyone doing today?

My name is Scotty, and I’m the proud owner of this website!!

Over the next few minutes, I’ll share my life story with you guys.

Furthermore, I’ll reveal how I went from being an unemployed factory worker to building an online empire.

Moreover, I’ll share how someone with ZERO technical skills built a massive online business.

As you can see, I’m your regular Joe from around the block.

I’ve never been a fan of working for someone else.

I firmly believe we weren’t put on this earth to work and pay bills.

That’s utterly ridiculous if you ask me.

Anyway, I’ll share my life story, a few of my struggles, and how I’ve overcome them.

I’ll also share the many struggles and roadblocks I’ve encountered over the past few years when attempting to build a business online.

As well as how I could deal with them and continue moving forward.

It doesn’t matter who you are; we all have a story to tell, and here is mine!!

Who Is Scotty Newkirk?

I’m your typical down-to-earth guy who refuses to work for someone else his entire life.

Also, I refuse to build somebody else’s dreams instead of working on my dreams.

Can you blame me tho?

Since I graduated high school at 18, I knew there had to be a better way.

Instead of joining the rat race and living paycheck to paycheck like everyone else, I took the road less traveled.

You might want to grab a cup of tea or your favorite beverage as things are about to get quite interesting.

I’ll be getting pretty personal with you guys today.

I’m sure many of you can relate to my situation.

A Little Insight Into The Life Of Scotty Newkirk

Shortly after graduating high school in June 1993, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life.

Because of this, I worked in the fast-food industry on and off for the next seven years after graduating high school.

Around the turn of the century, I finally got fed up with fast food and figured it was time to find a real job that paid better, offered more financial stability, and offered better benefits.

In 2000, I got hired through a temp agency to work at the Longaberger Basket Company in Frazesburg, Ohio.

I was ecstatic because this would be the first “Real job” I had gotten since I graduated seven years ago.

After a few months, I had the chance to get hired full-time by the company.


At that point in my life, I felt like I was on cloud 9, seriously!!

Everything Was Fine Until This Happened

Things were going great for quite a few years, and I was having the time of my life at this new job until the company started having financial troubles.

You can probably guess what happened next.

The company downsized and laid off over 800 people within the next few months.

If you have ever worked for a factory or distribution center, you know that the people who have been there the least time are the first to be let go.

Wouldn’t you know that I was in the first group of people to be let go, and I was devastated?

So, Where Did I Go From There?

Luckily, I did have about three years with the company.

Therefore, I could collect unemployment while I waited for them to call me back to work.

I finally managed to get called back, but unfortunately, it didn’t last long.

Before I knew it, guess what?

I found myself back on unemployment once again.

By this time, I was getting pretty sick of this.

Can you blame me, though?

I had started looking for work, and I told myself it was time to move on cause I had a car payment and many bills to pay.

After filling out various job applications, I returned to the temp services and worked at the JC Penny Warehouse in Reynoldsburg, Ohio.

It was 2006, and I was thrilled to finally be working again after over a year of being laid off and unemployed.

However, if you have ever used a temp service, your chances of getting hired full-time aren’t very good unless they like you.

Things were good for a while, but after a few months, I found myself bouncing around from one job to the next and finding no satisfaction in my work.

After the temp services, I worked several jobs, which included stocking shelves at a grocery store, running a video game trader, and even working in the Walmart deli.

After the jobs I listed above ended, it wasn’t too long before I could finally end the madness and start to see a light at the end of the tunnel.

While I did end up working at Walmart for three years (June 2008- Oct 2011)

I loved it there for two and a half of those three years and made quite a few friends while I was working there, so overall, this was one of the better jobs I’ve had since Longaberger.

Back To The Distribution Centers, I Go

In November 2011, I worked as a seasonal associate at the Limited Brands distribution center, earning nearly $11.00 an hour.

Because this was a seasonal position, much overtime was available, which excited me.

I kept thinking about all the money I would make and ways I could spend it before I even made it.

Have you guys ever done this?

I’m sure many of you can relate to this, as you have probably done it or perhaps still do it today.

Shortly after I started working there, I quickly learned that the overtime wasn’t as abundant as they told us it would be, and I didn’t make nearly as much as I thought.

I was a little bummed about this, but at the end of the day, it is what it is, right?

Working between 45 and 60 hours a week didn’t leave me much time to do anything else, and by the time I got home in the evenings, I was pretty exhausted.

However, as tired as I was, I knew there had to be a better way to make a living and that this job would end soon.

On my days off and within the time I had off from work, I spent a lot of time researching ways to make money online.

What I Thought Was A Way Out

After doing a great deal of research, I came across a company called Ameriplan, which, at the time, seemed like my way out and an excellent opportunity.

In the past, I had fallen for many scams, which made some pretty outlandish claims in terms of how much money I would make, but at the end of the day, failed to deliver, and I ended up losing a great deal of money.

Nevertheless, I tried to stay optimistic and hope for the best with this new company.

The lady who introduced me to the company was super transparent and went out of her way to show me how everything worked and what I needed to do to get started.

I was convinced that this was my way out, so needless to say, I joined and was ready to get to work.

Around this same time, my seasonal job ended, and guess what?

I was back at the unemployment line, signing up for benefits again.

However, I had a plan this time, and instead of just sitting around collecting a check, I put this time to good use.

The Truth About Ameriplan Comes Out

After reviewing some of the training and talking to my recruiter regularly, I discovered that I had just joined an MLM company and would need to call people on the phone and read from a script.

Due to my previous experience with MLM, I knew this wouldn’t work, and I started to get discouraged about my whole plan.

I stayed with this company for two months and tried it to see if things would be any different this time.

After reciting the phone scripts several times and practicing my lines before calling up potential prospects, I was ready to tackle this and make some sales.

To make a long story short, I had more people hang up on me or not even answer the phone than people who did.

I made 0 sales and thought I would do detailed research on this company before going further.

You can read my entire Ameriplan review here to learn about my experiences with the company and many others.

What happened next is something that completely changed my life.

Therefore, if it wasn’t for my in depth research, I might have NEVER discovered the business model that earns me a full time living today.

What happened, and what did I find after thoroughly researching this MLM company?

That’s what I’ll reveal next, so you’ll want to see what happens to me.

How I Found The Light At The End Of The Tunnel

As I continued to research Ameriplan, I found quite a few people who weren’t at all happy with them, and it seemed like the deeper I dug for information, the more dirt I uncovered about this company.

I eventually came to a site where this guy was sharing his personal experience that he has had with this company and how he despises talking on the phone (Just like me) LOL.

I could instantly relate to him on many levels, and his down-to-earth demeanor made me feel connected.

He told me how corrupt most MLMs, like Ameriplan, are and suggested a better way to earn money online that doesn’t involve recruiting or selling to be successful.

He then said that affiliate marketing is how he makes money online.

He also said it is a legitimate business model that has been around for over twenty years.

Wealthy Affiliate was where he had learned all of this.

Furthermore, he told me that if I was willing to work hard and put in great effort, I could replicate his results or possibly even better.

Furthermore, he mentioned that this would be difficult as you’ll need to work hard before seeing any long-term results.

I honestly had nothing to lose at the time, so I gave it a shot.

I told myself I would give myself a year to see any results, give it everything I had, and devote as much time to it as possible.

Since I was still collecting unemployment benefits and didn’t have a job, I had all the time in the world to work on this and go through the training.

It Finally Happened (My First Sale)

After nearly four months of going through the training & implementing what I had learned, I finally made my first sale in the online world.

To be quite honest with you guys today, I was pretty excited when I got that first email notifying me that I had made a commission.

Although it was only $8, I felt like I had won the lottery and was dancing on top of the world.

A few days later, I was told by one of the owners of WA (Kyle) that more sales would eventually trickle in, and he was right.

Within two weeks, I had already made $56, and the sales continued to come in a little at a time.

I kept thinking that if I kept this up, I wouldn’t have to look for another job once my unemployment ran out like I did many other times.

Fast forward six months later & I was bringing in nearly $1,000 a month with my sales & income constantly rising and other opportunities to make even more money on the horizon.
