Hello! My name is Allan, and I currently live in the Dallas metro area with my wife Stefanie. I am 38 years old, and have been struggling for a while with the fact that I would like more time to spend at home with my family while earning an income from home. I know what you are thinking - this guy is looking for a get rich scheme where he can log into a computer, push a button, and then go out and do whatever he wants while the money just pores in. Doesn't he know that building an online business from his home will require a lot of time spent creating content and capturing traffic to convert and that this is the opposite of spending time with he family? Well, while I would love that, I am definitely aware that the reality of the situation is that I will be spending loads of time in front of my computer, but it would still be better than my current situation. A little about me..

I currently work as a field engineer for an oil services company. The money is really good and is what drew me into the work, but I spend most of my time away from home...literally 300+ days a year without seeing my wife, playing with my dogs, or sleeping in my own bed. My wife is great and doesn't complain (much) about me being gone, but I have come to the realization that while I may be increasing my bank account, I am slowly but surely dwindling away my real life - the life I could be spending with my family. It is for this reason that I started researching REAL work from home opportunities. Before joining the oil industry I went to school and received degrees in business and marketing so I centered my search around opportunities that I feel I could adapt to easily, and here I am. I have reviewed and even tried a few different affiliate training programs that did not really involve any training at all, but after reading a very forthcoming review about WA I decided to take the plunge and see where life takes me!

Your goals are totally realistic and when you achieve the first one, it will be just a matter of scaling to reach the second one. The Internet works wonderful when you have your formula for success down which you are going to be getting from the training here at WA.

Once you get this formula down the sky is truly the limit Allan! I look forward to working with you and seeing you make your goals a reality. :)

Hey Allan! Just wanted to follow up and see how you're doing so far. Hope you've been enjoying the training offered here and the community as well.

I wanted to share with you a training I wrote here at Wealthy Affiliate. It's called "9 Tips for Internet Marketing Beginners" and it walks you through some of the things I've learned since joining Wealthy Affiliate over 5 years ago. Check it out below and leave a comment to let me know what you think!

Wanting to provide for your family is a great goal Allan! I'm married, with no children (yet!) and I'm very grateful for the opportunities Wealthy Affiliate has granted me in life. :)

You can achieve the same level of success as well! It's a matter of taking action, asking questions, and pushing forward. We're all here to help!

Hey Allan and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 5 years ago. I was looking to learn how to supplement my income through Internet Marketing and what I've found was so much more.

By 2010, I was working full-time from home. These days, ALL of my income comes from my ventures online. In fact, my wife just recently quit her job to start her own business as well. Internet Marketing and Wealthy Affiliate have provided us with amazing opportunities (we've bought a house, get to travel the world, and best of all, no longer spend time "going to work") and I'm incredibly thankful to the training, tools, and support here that made it all possible. :)

I'd love for you to see the same level of success. So, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

To get started, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself. If there's anything I can do for you Allan, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve

Hi Steve! I am very glad to have stumbled across your website. I haven't even been on WA for a full hour yet, and my experience is far better than any other affiliate "training" programs I have tried. I look forward to speaking more with you.

You can't really even compare WA to any other program out there. They just offer so much here that no other program comes even remotely close to touching them.
