Welcome To MikeWorksOnline.com

Hello everyone, I’m Mike and thanks for stopping by. If your here to learn about earning an income online, location independent businesses, making money while traveling, semi-passive income or just to be entertained at work…you’ve come to the right place.

This site is about showing you what works, what doesn’t and providing tips and motivation, from other’s who are actually implementing these strategies.

Now I don’t claim to be an ‘expert’, but I have educated myself on earning location independent online income. My goal here is to show you, in an honest and ethical way, how you too can mimic the success so many others have found online.

Drop Shipping


Now there are other ways (ie TeeSpring, Udemy, YouYube…) to earn online income and YES I do recommend multiple income sources. BUT, the list above are ‘long term plays’, methods that aren’t fads and the ones that can create ‘substantial income’ in a relatively short amount of time.

The Drop Shipping Business Model

Drop Shipping (or Drop Ship Store) involves simply building an online store, advertise someone else’s products, receive orders online, forwarding the order(s) to the manufacturer and keeping part of the profit. It really is that simple!

Watch this short video where I walk you through the process and show you how easy it is.


What Drop Shipping is NOT

  • NOT a ‘Get Rich Quick’ Scheme. DS takes real time and real effort
  • NOT completely passive income. DS, after a few months becomes ‘semi-passive’
  • NOT MLM (Multi-Level-Marketing). You sell REAL products to REAL people. It’s a REAL business.

What Drop Shipping IS

  • IS a real business. You sell real products to real people.
  • IS a business that you can sell someone (typically 25 times earnings)
  • IS location independent. You can run your business from anywhere with an internet connection.
  • IS profitable. You see product ads on Google for a reason, they are making money
  • IS growing. EXAMPLE: In 2016. Walmart (retail) is closing stores, Amazon (drop Shipping) had record sales!

Real Store Owner: The Course I Learned From and Trust


I personally chose RealStoreOwner for four reasons:

1) the creator, Anton Craly, has multiple successful stores himself (& sold one for $300,000+),

2) the course has over 5,100+ students,

3) the course is continuously updated to address changes in the industry,

4) the course was created in 2012 and is still around…need I say more.

Disclaimer/Truth: I do earn a commission if you choose to go with RealStoreOwner.com. There are obviously other course available, but again this is my recommendation based on my experience with the company since I started doing business online. If you do purchase through my affiliate link, thank you so much for your support!
