I was an engineer by profession and then became a freelancer. Currently, I mainly focus on managing my investment portfolio and online business.

I have no regret joining Wealthy Affiliate as I have really learned some real stuff here. I have learned a lot by going through the training modules and interacting with the community.

Thanks to Wealthy Affiliate, the online business has helped to generate a sustainable income. A few trading products that I have recommended on the website have also been generating a stable income (commissions on every trade my referrals made).

I have tried out a lot of things at the beginning when I joined. I have discovered a lot of tricks and tips along the way from the community. So, let's connect and learn from each other.

Take my word - if Wealthy Affiliate works for me, it definitely works for you.

I wish you all the best in WA.

Regards,
Alex

Hi AlexCY,

Thanks for your mail and your comments re-WA.

I too started my working life as an engineer with the MOD. I Ieft engineering to continue in a sales career and I have run several businesses since then, including telecoms, contracting services and small plant hire. I returned to electrical engineering by chance about 10 years ago selling solar pv and LED lighting to the public sector market. My main source of income is from the LED business.

I have been trying to make some sense of the all the option trading information which started off on a low level and seems to be everywhere now! I have found the hardest part is separating the scams from the genuine. I receive at least 20 or more emails from trading companies and people involved in option trading every day offering various recommendations etc.and I have found the brokers are the key to trading successfully as their terms, fees, margins, commissions etc. make a big difference.

I was interested to read you are making money from trading recommendations. I have thought for sometime it's the online subscription services which seem to be consistently making money and I have been trying to find a way to set this up as an online business. I am not sure exactly how it works but I assume the brokers pay commission for each investor you send to them.
I have seen some very big % being offered but again it is difficult and takes a lot of reading, when it comes to sorting the scammers from the genuine. As they say the majority of their retail investors lose money trading options which adds to the confusion but when you compare their rules and terms, it is easy to see how a few of them say 64% and many of them say 80% plus lose money. And of course those figures relate to the number of investors not the amount of money they lose!

Thanks again for your message and I look forward to any comments or advice you want to give me.

Best regards,

Rob001

Hi Alex, thanks for the follow and I am now following you back. it's great that you are able to do what you love and travel with your wife. That is one of my goals for my husband and I and our family. I like that you hungered for more, and not in greedy way, to do more of what you love. And it must be working, and you must be helping others too cause you mentioned that your website got more traffic and that means more revenue.

Congratulations and keep it up!

Hello, Alex. Thank you for following me. I see that you are well established here at WA. I read your latest blog post ($2,000 Per Day Through My Website Yesterday) and I found that to be an eye-opener! I didn't realise that it is possible to earn $2,000 a day in commissions! I thought that much in a month would be tough to acquire.

I am now following you and your blog.

Janice.

As a newbie I have a lot work and research to do but I am confident it will be all worthwhile in one giant world family.

This is a whole new adventure for me AND meeting people from around the world in WA makes me feel like making bucket loads of money and travelling to those countries - good incentive

Have a great day

Thanks for the follow. I hope hope to aspire others like you in the WA community. As newbie in WA what words of wisdom can you tell me about WA community. Is WA really rewarding and have you been able to travel and have financial freedom? Do you have any other source of income or WA is sufficient enough to make a decent living?

Whatever you will be taught here at WA is rewarding. Most importantly, be patient and take actions. Many have given up along the way, but I also witnessed many have succeeded too.

Read this blog:- I have other sources of income -property investment and mutual fund :)

Dear Alex, I am trying to leave comments on your website through Site Comments and it won't let me post (says typing too fast or something like that). Anyway, just reaching out to you. Let's follow each other. We are both engineers. Congratulations on being able to quit your job. Good show. Kelly

Hi Alex,

Thanks for the follow. I have been part of WA since February 2016 but am just now starting my journey.

I noticed you were an engineer for awhile. I was a design engineer for Time Warner Telcom for 12 years before I decided to stay home and raise my daughters. I stayed home for 9 years and about drove myself insane.

I have two websites that I hope to get off the ground and plan on building a few more. I currently left a position as a Taproom Manager for a brewery in Colorado but realized I don't like having a boss. Go figure...

Good luck with WA and look forward to celebrating your success.

Sam

I'm glad to know you Alex. I need to take sometime to read your blog. I have a full time job and use my spare time in WA. I wish I could quit my job and be in full time on online business.

Maybe I will learn a lot from you. I am looking forward.

From what I read from your profile, it seems as though you're already living the life, doesn't seem like you need to create much more financial success from affiliate marketing. Just kidding...I hope you do really well, I guess what you achieved in the past you had deserved, so I hope you do well here also. Keep me in the loop with the little wins that you get along the way, I'm always eager to learn. Thanks for your time!

Thank you Alex for following. I think I can learn a great deal from you. I don't know if you will from me. Online businesses are a very new thing for me. I am following you back but I feel it is for selfish reasons. I am about ready to look at a video I found in your blog How to get indexed faster on google. Thanks again.
