Hey there! My name is Ilya, and welcome to Ultimate Sapiens. 

When I was 16 I learned about the glorious world of entrepreneurship and making money online.

I spent my time grinding out surveys for $1 each, and making small money with sites like Swagbucks and InboxDollars.

While making my first $1 online was sweet, sweet, sweet, I wanted more.

I tried some different money-making methods, had some success with Amazon affiliate, and through hard work, luck, and more luck I was able to make $58,000 online in 3 years while going to school full-time.

I’ve since moved on from Amazon affiliate sites, and transitioned to businesses that will be more useful to the world.

I started Ultimate Sapiens with the goal of sharing my business and personal development journey and hopefully helping others improve along with me.

How It All Began

In July of 2014 I got this genius idea of creating a site about making money online.

I made money through sites like Swagbucks and InboxDollars, and I created this site (actually it wasn’t this site, but a site called Trustworthy, right?) because “I haven’t seen any sites about making money online so this must be an easy niche to get into.”

If you know anything about SEO and the Internet, then you know that the make money online industry is one of the most competitive ones out there.

I have no idea why I didn’t realize how much competition there was, but I’m glad that I created the site because it’s what started this adventure and I learned a ton about:

  • Search engine optimization
  • Internet marketing
  • Content creation
  • Different advertising platforms
  • And much more.

What To Expect

This isn’t one of those sites that simply regurgitates information from other sites or one that posts hundreds of tiny, useless articles every month. (Or at least I hope it’s not.)

Instead, you’ll find in-depth posts based on my personal experience (logs) or in-depth research and expert interviews.

My interests vary widely and I frequently become obsessed over certain topics for months before burning out and moving on, so I won’t focus on only one topic. This means you might see posts about:

About Me

I made $50,000 online before turning 20 through hard work, perseverance, and pure luck. Now I’m going to teach you how to do the same by selling $999 online courses. Just kidding! 😉 [read more…]
