My Story

Hi, welcome to Adventurous Affiliate, I am Tom. I escaped the rat race in the UK to to live in the French Alps to enjoy the mountains. Whether it is on my mountain bike, my snowboard, hiking boots or in my classic Mini, Carolyn (my wife) and I love being here.

In the UK, I worked as an engineer and Carolyn worked in various management positions for a large hotel chain. We got to a point where we were not particularly exited by our jobs and we barely saw each other, so we decided to drop everything and work a winter season as chalet hosts in Val D’Isere France.

When the season finished, we had not! So, we moved to Morzine to check out the mountain bike scene and loved it so much, we decided to stay.

We had been working for a great chalet company for four years, but I decided that I wanted some flexibility and to live in the mountains under my own terms. It got frustrating when I was stuck in someone else working hours, meaning I couldn’t escape on a powder day.

With lots of research I discovered affiliate marketing. This would give me the freedom to escape the office and head up the mountain for a few hours in the morning and continue working as I saw appropriate.

This hasn’t been easy, with lots of late nights in front of my laptop, but knowing will never miss the best conditions on the mountain makes up for it. It is all about balance.

You can do this too

The idea behind Adventurous Affiliate is to help people that want to do what I am doing. The site is aimed at those that have a love of the mountains, but don’t want to scrub toilets, work in kitchens or have to deal with “Florence and Sebastian’s hire skis”. Affiliate marketing allows you to work from home, as long as you have a computer, an internet connection and the will to work hard. Although this site is aimed at mountain people, this method of self employment is great for people that live in camper vans, surfers, parents that are looking after their kids at home and anyone that wants to make money or change their life.

I hope you enjoy the site and that you find what you are looking for. I’m here to provide support….once I’m back off the mountain 🙂

Affiliate Disclosure: There will be a few links on this website that I will receive a small amount of money from if you buy through it. It won’t cost you anything extra than going directly to the seller.
