Thank you for visiting my profile. I guess this is where we are meant to reveal something about ourselves. So I will share my story and a little about myself.

After leaving high school I pursued a career in Software Engineering and eventually obtaining a Masters.

I have always worked with computers and computer programming after getting my Commodore 64 back in the early 80s for Christmas when at school. I did a lot of self teaching in programming Basic and Machine Language.

I will always love the Commodore 64 I think it is the best home computer that has been conceived! I still have it and what's more my Commodore 64 still works!

So after leaving school and wondering what to do, it seemed the logical thing to do to take up an initial course in computer programming.

After getting my Masters in Software Engineering, I followed the same path most people do and got a job working for someone else. I was, like most people, mind controlled in thinking this is the only way to earn a living as the best option.

I was never taught the Entrepreneurial mindset and working for myself. It seems that there were no other options.

However, at the back of my mind I knew I had to take the road most people don't consider travelling.

Lets time travel forward a bit to 2008...

While I was earning a good salary in the IT Industry, I was becoming more disillusioned and depressed. The working environment was becoming more aggressive and I felt I was giving my power away.

I would work hard and ridiculous long hours and very little I praise. I was burning out and was asking myself what it is really all about.

So I left my job and took some time out to reflect. I left the country I was working in, gave up the expensive apartment I was in and moved back to my homeland and lived with my parents for a while.

It was at this time that I experienced the Light Bulb Effect. A powerful Flame of Revelation being ignited in my being.

I came across the concept of making money online. In particular affiliate marketing using the power of the internet. I thought, Wow! This is amazing.

It was the Eureka moment!

I could see a way out of the rut I was in. So I started to live my dreams, my vision, my passion and experience freedom.

However, it took me a while in the learning process and a series of silly mistakes. Basically, I became obsessed with the Laptop Lifestyle and the Work from Home Dream.

Most things out there just didn't work and eventually realised there were scams.

I was terribly frustrated.

What did barely merit as 'education' was consumed by the shiny object syndrome promising you millions.

Eventually, I did come across something that helped me correctly and legitimately to make money online.

That program was Wealthy Affiliate.

So here I am today and I am truly grateful to have found Wealthy Affiliate. I am doing was I enjoy which is blogging and making videos in my areas of interest.

I have learned that can make money on the internet out of any niche. Always follow your passion.

Yes, Wealthy Affiliate has taught me how to make money online, but now need to take things to the next level of where I want to go.

What I have learned is that the only difference between those whom are successful and those whom are not, is that the former take action.

Wealthy Affiliate will teach you how to make money online but only if you implement the training and most importantly to stick at it.

I am forever grateful to have found Wealthy Affiliate and what it has taught me. I also give thanks to the WA community and all those whom have helped me.

I will do my best to pay it forward and help others out in the community.

Have a wonderful Wealthy Affiliate Day!

Alexander.

Hi Paul,

Thank you for your wonderful comments!

I think your comments have shown how wonderful the WA community is. To connect with like-minded people and sharing insights and experiences.

I used to live in Canada and I am thinking of moving back to Ontario next year so I don't lose my residency.

I am currently in the UK at the moment.

I liked your profile Bio as well and wholeheartedly agree with you about your insights with WA.

Thanks,
Alexander.

Hi Alexander,

I just discovered your comment from a couple of months ago on one of my old posts. I feel bad that I missed it somehow while trying to focus on all of my work activities.

I hope that 2019 is off to a great start. Best wishes on your entrepreneurial journey.

Hi Sondra,

Thank you for your comment. There is no need to feel bad as its important to put your business first and get through your activities.

There are lots of posts I am catching up on as well inside WA and I have not been in the community for a while due to my work schedule.

I hope your ranch and farm is going really well. It sounds really exciting!

Take care and its great to be connected with you.

Thank you KyleAnn for your comment! WA is certainly the best place to be for learning to be an online entrepreneur. I found it takes time but the more you put in the more you get back.

Above all I am really at home behind my backend Wordpress office writing a blog post. I think it is awesome the way we can express our own creativity on the internet and make revenue from it.

The WA Community is an amazing community that is a living breathing library of knowledge. It really is amazing. If you need any help with technical aspects feel free to let me know and I be happy to help.

Take care and best wishes,
Alexander.

Hi Alexander and thank you so much for following me. Welcome back I guess. It is nice to see you return and I think so many of us can relate to the frustration of being led astray and falling prey to one too many sites that just don't tell it as it is. Making WA a breath of fresh air. Wishing you all the best.

Hi Ms Merry,

Thank you for your comment. I never really left, just changed my WA membership from annual to monthly. Had to cancel when renewal was due, then I could change to monthly.

However, that being said, yes lots of deceptions online and have been looking at them lately. The good news I'll be writing reviews and how Wealthy Affiliate is the best there is.

I have been neglecting my blogs sites here and will be getting back on track again.

However, I've been making money with Adsense for sometime now thanks to the WA training on one of my blog websites here at WA and one of my Youtube channels.

And all thanks to the WA training!

You are right WA is a real breath of fresh air and gives real knowledge for a change.

Unfortunately I have seem any MLM'ers bashing WA in retaliation to those inside WA whom have been exposing the MLM scams.

These MLM scammers have underestimated me! Ha ha! As I have a lot of experience under my belt to write about!

I wish you well here at WA and with your goals. It looks like you are doing fantastic!

Thanks,
Alexander.

Thanks Alexander for your reply. Looks can be deceiving :) I need to do much better and with my annual coming up it gives me a lot to have to think about. Still waiting on the Adsense thing to kick in. I first got an okay and then it changed for some reason to a waiting game again. Time to refresh that training I think. Thank you for your open honesty too.

Hi Miranda,

Thank you so much for your comment! You are right WA is such a blessing! I have been a member since 2014 and never look back. Recently I wanted to change my membership to monthly so cancelled and then renewed.

I hope you are doing well with your online goals. You will definitely make money and be successful if you work through the training. One of my sites has been generating a money along with one of my Youtube channels.

I haven't been giving my blog sites as much focus as I should but going to get things back on track again.

Thank you for your encouragement and support, and I agree the WA community is amazing.

Hi Sharon,

I noticed I have not replied to your nice comment and its been 9 months and counting. Thank you for the connection also and yes I have started to get more into other aspects of online business. I'm generating a revenue stream with Adsense and now I have had my first amazon commission, so all pumped up about that.

I hope your business is going well and getting better and better. I'll be sure to through some questions your way if i get stuck. I want to do a some training modules for WA, based on what I have learned. Just need to work on the time to do that.

Lets keep in touch together here and fly ideas around.

Best wishes,
Alexander.
