So what happened this month?

I'm super happy with this month.


Well it's because I took off about 10 days.


It's a funny story, actually. On the evening of February 18th while watching tv with my wife, I started complaining to her that the volume was way too loud. Of course she just turned it down for me, but she was a bit surprised because it wasn't any louder than normal.

Well, the next day I woke up in the morning with a ringing sound in my ear. I just figured I had some sort of an ear infection so I didn't think much of it. However it persisted into the afternoon and my wife made an appoint for me with the ear doctor just to make sure it wasn't serious.

So I went to the doctor and my hearing started going away. He jammed some big tweezers in my ear and removed some nasty wax (sorry for the details) but my hearing was gone by this point. He sent me to the emergency room and I was immediately put on an IV with antibiotics and steroids. Also on top of that I was told I'd have to come back to the hospital every day for 3 to 4 hours for the next 10 days.

Of course at this point I would do anything to get my hearing back, and luckily it started to slowly come back the next day. However they still weren't quite sure why I lost my hearing to begin with, so I had to get an MR to make sure it wasn't something serious like a brain tumor.

Thankfully it ended up being just an ear infection, but the doctor told me that it's good I came in immediately because if you don't get medical attention within 24 to 48 hours after sudden hearing loss it can result in permanent damage.

My hearing came back to almost 100% by the end of the 10-day treatment, but it definitely knocked me down and scared me...especially when I was waiting for my MR results. Not fun.

So I was knocked out of my affiliate promotion rhythm from the 19th to the 28th, which most likely resulted in at least $2k to $5k in lost revenue, but I'm happy to miss out on that in exchange for hearing back in my ear 🙂

  1. Great ending to what could have been a terrible story.I always hate it when the initial diagnosis is "Hmmm this is strange! I really don't know what it could be.

    I always admired your transperency as being one of the few online that actually share your earnings.I don't mean share them with us literally though that would be ok,lol!

    I do have a question because I noticed that a majority of your earnings come from your bonus pages.I would love to hear about that in detail and I would imagine your other subscribers may be curious about that as well.

    Keep doin your reviews and sharing that good info with us Mike,it's much appreciated.
