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.

Money Goals
Q1: 500 - 1000 per month - with my employment income stream, this extra income would make a big difference in my life.

Q2: I would be ecstatic earning 3000 - 5000 per month, as this would mean I could give up my full time job and instead work full time working for myself and my online business.

Q3: I would like to work an extra 2 - 4 hours or more per day. This is my first week as a member of Wealthy Affiliate and I have already noticed how much of a challenge this is to put those extra hours in while working at my full time employment. So to make this work I need to seriously look at how I can better organize myself, get rid of the clutter in my life, and perhaps get up earlier in the morning before going to work and plan to set extra time in the evenings, along working at my business at the weekends.

I'm going for the same goal as you mention in Q3. I have to sent my priorities straight, I mean, nothing comes in easy right? I'm sure that extra effort will benefit in the future.

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.
