Hello WA!
My name's Alex, I am 31, currently living in Montreal, Canada.

I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate since October 2007 (over 10 years now) and I have never had a single regret about joining this wonderful community. I have been scammed several times, running after "Get Rich Quick" schemes and MLMs and I was ready to give up on the idea of "online business". And this is when I discovered WA and told myself this would be the last "make money" program I would try.

Throughout the years I have had my ups and down, I have built up a successful online business and lost it due to negligence but then I built it back up, slowly but surely. Live and learn, I guess.

Until mid-2013 I have been busy with many different projects, off and online but now I am concentrating on Internet Marketing once again - this is why you can find me right here on WA a lot more often.

in 2015 I launched a weekly marketing podcast called the Extra Paycheck Podcast. On that show I interview successful online entrepreneurs who share their tips, strategies and experiences. All of my guests have inspiring stories and some are making millions of dollars from their blogs and other online businesses.

Feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions about Wealthy Affiliate or Internet Marketing in general. Don't forget to check out my blogs (on the right side of this profile page).

Success to You!

Hi Alex, Just wanted to say a huge thank you, as it was through your website that I found WA. I read your profile comments. You've been around here for some time and sounds like you've found successful methods for making an income.
I will definitly be going through all the materials. WA seems to be highly recommended wherever I read about it.

Again Thanks Alex!
Best wishes

David

Hi Alex... thank you for dropping a msg in my profile. And yes i need help with regards to Niches. It's been awhile now, this question of what am i passionate about is still unanswered. I asked myself but still i cant get the right one, the exact one, the one. They said what we are passionate about could bring us joy and if channel in the right way, will us wealth. But i cant get what's the right Niche for me, what's my passion. I am an accountant by profession, so i am thinking maybe anything related with that. But i also love self help books, inspiring and motivational books and stories and trainings and classes. So i dont know.... i also like music but i dont have talent in singing lol. Appreciate if you can advise. Thank you Alex........

Hi ;)

I have answered some of your questions in other places around WA. Both accounting and motivation could be great niches in my opinion. The bigger suggestion would be not overthinking it and just going with one or the other. Taking action is the most important thing here and you should be doing it ASAP.

If I was you I'd probably start with accounting simply because you know a lot on the subject and it will be easier for you to produce content. But remember that you are not limited to one niche and one site, once you get the hang of things you could start a second site about motivation and so on ;)

Hi Kelly. It sucks to hear about all of that.

1. If you want to contact someone privately on WA, just go to their profile and click on Private Message at the top.

2. Your profile states you've been a member since September 28, 2015.

3. And last but not least, I would highly suggest starting your training from the beginning by clicking the green Get Started Here button at the top left of your WA account. This way it will be easier to follow along ;)

Stay strong,

Alex

Hey Alex! I had a quick question- I decided to go the cruelty-free makeup route, and I'm thinking about making my site more blog-oriented, kinda following my personal journey switching over to cruelty-free makeup. Does that format still lend itself to affiliate sales? And does that sound like a good idea?

Thanks so much, you've been so much help already!

Hey Kailey!

I think blogs are making a huge comeback these days. I had interviewed a few successful bloggers recently and it made me realize that people are staying away from big sites and are going into smaller niche oriented blog so in my opinion, totally worth it!

Hi Alex, I’m still feeling out WA to see if it’s for me. I”m in my mid 60s and looking for something to supplement/ fund my retirement. I’ve never had anything to do with social media nor have any interest in it. It seems like a huge waste of time. I was going to complete the Affiliate Bootcamp and promote WA. Is social media required or needed to be successful? John

John, social media is not always required but it surely helps a lot for most online businesses. It's like if you opened a shop in the corner of an an empty street - no body would go there and you'd have to shut down. Social media is like having people talk about your shop and going there to buy stuff. Required? No. Useful? Very ;)

Hi Jallen, following you because you are like me; Im 63 and need to fund my retirement after losing a lot of money during the financial crises, and I have no interest in social media, I don't have a Facebook account. But I'll give you a tip - if I find that using social media will help me become successful - I'll be joining real quick !!

That's a good tip!
Also people need to realize that they do NOT need to have a detailed personal account sharing their private life with others. You can open a FB account for your business and keep your personal life away from it ;)

Thanks for that advice Alex, I don't know anything about Facebook, but have seen the havoc it can sometimes cause in peoples lives, so will find out about the FB account when Im at the stage of needing to use it.

Hahaha, I know what you mean. And that was precisely my point: If you open an account and don't share any personal details than you can't cause a havoc ;)

Hi Geoff. Yes I also lost a lot of money in the 08, 09 financial crisis. You’re right, if Facebook can help me make some extra money, then I’ll join, as long as its for business only. John
