Hey there, my name is Ilya, and welcome to Ultimate Sapiens. Here’s some info about me:

I started making money online when I was 16, and since then I’ve made over $58,000 while going to school full-time.

I’ve tried numerous online money-making methods, and have a lot of success with Amazon affiliate, but I am now transitioning to businesses that I think are more useful to the world.

I’m obsessed with improving myself physically and mentally, and my goal is to fulfill my potential as a human being and help others do the same.

I started Ultimate Sapiens with the goal of sharing my self-development journey and helping others improve along with me.

How It All Began

My self development journey was primed with Malcolm Gladwell’s books like the Outliers, The Tipping Point, and Blink.

Since then I’ve read hundreds of books on psychology, personal development, and business with the goal of learning as much as possible so I can improve myself and share that knowledge with others.

The self-dev story isn’t incredibly fascinating, but my story of getting into making money online is funny.

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 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.

I learned a ton about:

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

I’m still not at the income that I want to be, but I’m slowly getting there.

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.

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

I believe that humans should be able to do many things, so I won’t focus on only one topic. This means you might see posts about:
