As you begin to think of the millions of entrepreneurs that fill the internet, it is amazing to think that one lady could have such an impact on the overall industry. However, this is precisely what Rosalind Gardner has done and continues to do for internet marketers all over the world.

The story of Rosalind Gardner begins like any other entrepreneur. After working as an air traffic controller for twenty years, it was time to move on and start taking advantage of what the internet has to offer. There is no point in working long hours and making the same amount year after year when there is so much potential online. This is exactly what she discovered.

There are far too many entrepreneurs today that think they can jump online, start a home business and start making hundreds of thousands of dollars. Rosalind was different as she knew it would be difficult to make enough money to live comfortably while paying for retirement. Because of this, she dreamed big by setting high goals for herself, and became an aspiring affiliate marketer.

As is the case with many internet marketing newbie’s, she began in 1997 researching and gaining as much knowledge as possible to prep her for her first web site based on gardening. However, thanks to a banner ad company that wanted her to advertise a dating site, she truly found her niche. She began to realize the opportunity that was in front of her to profit from affiliate marketing.

She was well aware of the struggles and time it would take to succeed, and her income showed. After her first month of affiliate marketing, she had $10.99 to show for her efforts. Instead of sulking and giving up, she continued to strive for her goals and she was rewarded for her determination. By the end of her first year, she was making $5,000 each month.

At this time, she was still working her day job as an air traffic control while profiting greatly on the side from affiliate marketing. By 2000, Rosalind Gardner was making a whopping $10,000 per month which was more than enough for her to quit that overwhelming and monotonous day job.

You may have heard of Rosalind Gardner before, but chances are it was not from her air traffic control job. It probably was not even from her gardening web site or dating web site. What has truly put her on the map and made her the first lady of affiliate marketing was her famous affiliate marketing e-book manual entitled “The Super Affiliate Handbook: How I Made $436,797 in One Year Selling Other People’s Stuff Online.”

Not only did this e-book do wonders for her, but it has been the cornerstone for affiliate marketing, and an inspiration for affiliate marketers worldwide. It has transformed the way millions of entrepreneurs and affiliate marketers approach affiliate marketing today.

In a brief period of time, Rosalind learned how to make money working from home through affiliate marketing. The terrific thing about her story is that she was not some washed up internet marketer looking to keep all of the secrets to herself. Instead, she wrote this 265 page book to help millions of others prosper as well.

To go from $10.99 in her first month to $436,797 in 2002 truly is a remarkable feat. Today, she works as the CEO of Webvista, Inc., is an acclaimed author, public speaker and business consultant. All of her knowledge and wisdom speaks for itself, but her credentials have turned her into the first lady of internet marketing.

Whether you are an internet marketing newbie or an expert, you can gain a lot from her knowledge and e-book. She has an internet marketing blog available at http://www.netprofitstoday.com/blog/ which is quite down to earth and very informative. And the great thing about this is you get the chance to talk with her and ask questions to a true expert.

There are few people that have built up the stature that Rosalind Gardner has. If you have not yet read “The Super Affiliate Handbook,” then put this as priority-1 on your list of things to do. Despite this being her most notable claim to fame, she continues to enjoy a heralded career since her first works.

Her book written in 2002 is still a best-seller today. She continually updates it, several times a year.

God bless Rosalind Gardner, First Lady of Affiliate Marketing
