About Me

Hi everybody!

John VanDerLaan and Family

My name is John Van and that is my beautiful family!

I would like to welcome you to the Scam Free Zone!

I have a passion for making money online and sharing my knowledge with others that want to do the same.

I've been an affiliate marketer since 2007! I work from home and can't wait to get out of bed in the morning to start another exciting, profitable day!

It is awesome to do something that you are passionate about everyday!

Unfortunately, it wasn't always like that...

Scams are Everywhere

When I started, back in 2007, I was brand new to internet marketing and I felt like the internet was the "wild west".

Wild West

It seemed like there was another scam or guru around every corner, just waiting to help me part ways with my money.

Yes, I fell victim to many of the online scams, but I kept at it.

I kept learning, and making note of all of the ways to make money online that were legitimate.

Eventually, the dust cleared and I emerged with a very thorough, although expensive, education in "How to Make Money Online".

As I thought back on my journey...

I just wished that I could have avoided all of the scams and unscrupulous people that I had encountered along the way.

Then The Lightbulb Came On!

Lightbulb Idea

That is when the lightbulb came on!

I knew from my online education that in order to make money online, I had to find a problem to solve, and then provide my readers with the solution to that problem!

Well, the biggest problem that I encountered during my early years in online business, was how to avoid all of the scams out there and finding legitimate methods and training for making money online.

That is why I created this website!

There are thousands of people out there, just like I was, trying to find the legitimate ways to make money online and avoid the scams.

My goal is to reach those people, and to help them!

Fast Forward to Today

Here we are today, more than 13 years after I started my journey in online business.

I am helping more and more people everyday to navigate the online business world and avoid the scams and pitfalls in the internet marketing industry.

I work 100% from home, or wherever it is that I happen to be traveling.

My beautiful wife is a stay at home mom and loving every minute of it!

We take 6-8 weeks vacation per year, depending on the kids schedules, and we travel to all of our favorite places!

I am not telling you this to brag...

I am telling you this in order to help you to understand what is possible in the online business world when you have someone to guide you through the maze of scams and lead you to the best methods and resources for making money online today.

I will provide you with all of the valuable information that you need to start your online business and grow it into a thriving income and lifestyle for FREE!

How Can I Do This?

One of the ways that I make money online is through affiliate marketing.

If you are not sure what affiliate marketing is, you can find a very thorough explanation here.

Basically, I have spent the last 13 years finding all of the real business opportunities and tools that you will need to succeed in the online business world.

I will provide information on these opportunities and tools, eliminating 100% of the scams.

Many of these tools and website builders and online training courses are free, but some of the good ones are only available for a fee.

If you ever decide to pay for a legitimate training or tool that I helped you to find, and you use my link to buy it, then I will make a commission.

Please understand that there is never any obligation to join a paid program.

I will simply provide it as an option if it is a good program and I will explain to you why you might want to consider it.

Affiliate marketing is a great way to build a successful online business and one that I am sure you will consider in your search to make money online.

Yes, I wrote out dotcom. Here's a tip for those of you that are beginners in the online business world.

TIP: If you post your email address on your website or blog without writing it out like that, bots will pick up your email address and you will find yourself inundated with spam.

Every time I create a page or post, I try to provide some free, valuable information that my readers can use.

I hope that you have been able to learn something here today.

To your success!
