Welcome to Veterans Affiliate Success.

Although this website was designed to help Veterans of Military or RCMP or their spouses to supplement their pension with an online business. It is open to everyone to learn from the content within.

Hello, my name is Richard (Rick) Hannaford.

Today I run an online business as an affiliate marketer. My aim is to show you how anybody can legally and easily create an income online with no experience and on a shoestring.

What Is The Best Way To Make Money Online?

Without a doubt, the best way is to follow someone who has.

I served 27 years in the Canadian Army before finally deciding to do what I really wanted, that was to have my own business.

I’m not your typical zero to hero story that you read about from those typical make money ads.

I left the military to get started in building my own business online.

Having no prior experience was my first mistake because the first program didn’t work for me, nor did the second, or the third…

The truth is… it took many programs for me to find the right one that was legit.

Here’s how it all started…

My son and I in Afghanistan

I was always seeking out business opportunities.

I constantly felt the pressures of that proverbial glass ceiling. Sure you can go up the ranks but even that has its limitations, and you still have to answer to someone else.

  • My time was not my own
  • I couldn’t vacation when I wanted
  • Risking my life during deployments for a paycheck
  • Missing so much of my children’s growing up is time I’ll never get back
  • And I was paid according to someone else’s idea of what that position was worth.

I can’t say I didn’t enjoy it but I knew there had to be more to life.

I wanted to travel without limitations and that required some form of passive income and an online business I knew would give me that.

Over the years I tried many different income opportunities:

  • Chain letters (I was naive)
  • Mail order
  • MLM (I tried several)
  • Several online opportunities

None of these were successful and left me with less money than I started with. I have to admit they did help to pave the road a little for me.

Once I left the military I was able to spend more time researching and testing various programs available online. It seemed something was missing from every one of the programs I attempted or it was just too damn expensive to keep going with it.


After numerous failed attempts I came across something that was different and it intrigued me.

That’s when I came across a program that seems to have it all.

All the previous programs up to now had their flaws which I covered in my reviews on every one of them.

I gained a lot of knowledge of online marketing but they were all lacking something or they just cost too much and even those that cost a fortune were still missing a key piece of the puzzle.

This one was different which really intrigued me because everything about it was different. The cost to learn was way cheaper and they shared with me the whole training program to view before I even spent a dime.

This I had never seen before.


I Tried It Out For free

I really got to know the owners on a more personal level and I know for a fact they are genuinely good-hearted people.

Once I got to play in the training platform I discovered it was like nothing I ever saw before, these guys knew what they were doing.

And after I talked to many of the thousands of people within the community I knew this program was designed to help others and not take advantage of them.

This training & Hosting platform provides all the tools and resources you need to get started and build an online business.

There are no hidden costs, upsells or any other BS which most other programs have.

Their training will take a newbie that knows nothing about online marketing and teach them using simple steps to get your website up and running in a couple of days.

From there they will continue to teach you at your own pace the best and most effective ways to run an online business.

Please keep in mind this is not a fast way to make money. There is no such thing as making money fast online or at least the legit way.

There is a faster way to make money once you have the training however it takes a long time to learn and is very expensive. You can read my review here.

Your best approach to making money online is to take advice from someone who has done it and not to go out looking for a program because it is like finding a needle in a haystack.

An online business is a real business, which should start off slow and build while you learn.

Once established you will have a nice income of around $3000 a month. With the right niche, you can expect $5000 to $10,000 a month.

If you are looking to get started building your online business today check out my personal review here on this affordable training.



I Am Passionate About Helping Others

I am well aware of the struggle to find a legitimate way to build a passive income. Although I came across many scams and expensive systems I was not deterred. I knew it was possible to build an income online; I just needed to find the right system that worked for me.

I know I am not alone and that is why I am so excited to be able to help other veterans (or anyone else) develop their own passive income streams.

I am finally excited about our future and hope to help you find that same excitement in your life.

This is not a get rich quick thing. While the financial costs are minimum it does take an investment of time to get things rolling and it’s not overnight.

Because it is online I can take my business anywhere I go providing me with a passive income for a long time.

Everything to expect in running any kinda business is covered in many of the articles available on my site and I encourage you to check them out.


Who Is It Best For?

This is excellent for anyone that already has a business and wishes to take it online for increased revenue.

It is also perfect for anyone new to business or online marketing and is interested in creating an income online. We will help you to find a niche that works best for you.

It’s also a fantastic way to take a hobby and turn it into an online business.

This is NOT for anyone looking to make money fast, building a real business takes time to learn and grow together with your business.

This is not just limited to Veterans, it is now open to anyone looking to work on their own business from home in any country.

American Veterans and are welcome as well.


The Goal of My Site

It is my goal to help others who are looking to build a passive income stream and avoid the many pitfalls I came across. I made many mistakes and spent copious amounts of money on scams and less honest business opportunities.

I learned the hard way so you don’t have to.

  1. I loved this post on how you shared how you discovered affiliate marketing. And you shared your personal experience with it.
    Thank you

    • I appreciate your warm comment Andrea. When I first started to learn marketing online I was more concentrating on me but as I continued to learn the various systems I also learned that there were a lot of people just like me trying to break free from the norm. Then after spending so much time and money on finding what works and what don’t I wanted to reach out and help others to get started and avoid the pitfalls I encountered.

      Thanks again for dropping by Andrea,
      All the best,

  2. Hello Rick-what a really down to earth and humble guy to go through other work at home programs and be entirely honest with us about what works and what doesn’t work. That kind of humanity for others is so rare. You are willing to share with us what “work from home”programs are a scam when no one else will. Then willing to let us follow you on this journey at Wealthy Affiliate so we can build our own successful business. I can’t wait to learn more. Thank you very much Rick.

    • What a beautiful comment to wake up to this wonderful Friday morning. Your words give me the strength and desire to continue with my journey thank you so much.

      It takes the same amount of energy to do it right and the honest way as appose to the shady or wrong way. The honest way allow you to sleep at night, feel good about your self and others will love you for it. On top of that it also will last a whole lot longer providing a residual income. Customers will return to a place they enjoy, like and it makes them feel good.
      On the other hand if you do it the shady way you don’t get repeated customers so you always have to come up with a new ad, program or something to keep the money flowing. Also, you are not respected by your friends and family and you have a hard time liking the person you see in the mirror.

      I didn’t like getting ripped off and I know no one else does either so I am taking my knowledge and instead of hiding from it I want to spread it to the world so they can avoid the same errors.

      Thank you so much for dropping by Nancy and I hope you have a wonderful weekend
      Cheers my friend
