Hi my name is Anthony,
I have had an Engineering trade background for the past 15 years. About 3 years ago I had a major turning point in my life I was spending more time with the people at work then spending time with my daughter who at the time was 2 years old. I missed her first steps because I was away for work. I started getting depression and probably the worst part of my life.

This was my turning point, it pushed me to do something about my life. So I started trying to find different ways to find an income. After days of thinking of ways to change my career to give the same money, but more time. I came across an add that told me I could make an income online and work from home. It turned out to be a scam, but it still gave me an idea.

It sparked the question "what if I could make an income online". I then began my research on how to make money online. At the start it was a lost cause, I had no experience at starting an online business and the worst thing was I was flying alone!

The thing that kept me going my absolute burning desire to achieve my goals. For me it wasn’t about the money and financial freedom (extra cash is nice don’t get me wrong), but more about TIME! Time is our most valuable asset in life, and in my case time with my family. I was tired of wasting it with the guys from work. I never had enough time to do the simple stuff in life.

I had a dream! This dream to get up in the morning and sit down and have breakfast with my wife and daughter, not kiss them on the forehead as I run out the door before they woke up. Be able to spend more time with my daughter before she grows up.

So I began researching. I tried all sorts of things to get me to my goals of getting a passive income. I failed at first, I know now the reasons for that was I had no help, and I lacked the vital education that you need to succeed in this industry.

Then I Got Lucky! During my research I came across another site that looked to sell another one of those “Earn money online now ads”. My first instinct was great another scam. But luckily I kept reading, and what I found was Wealthy Affiliate a website that offered all the training I needed to get going, it offered a large community of entrepreneurs that where willing to help from the word go. But the best part was it was FREE!

From there it still took me another 2 days of research to finally sign up. I started the training immediately and within the first couple of hours I knew this program (with some hard work and persistence) was the way to go. Within the first couple of hours I had my first website and had connected with over 50 like-minded people. In those couple of hours I had achieved more then the last two years!

Good luck with your dreams

Anthony

Anthony, I'm glad you found WA after your previous bad experiences. Your experiences of trying to get a business going online sound quite similar to mine, but things certainly turned the corner once I found and joined WA. Keep at it and success will follow. And remember, always enjoy the journey. Brett

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a couple of months ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost five months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Anthony, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Anthony.

Hey Kyle,
Thanks for the follow up, sorry it's been a bit to reply. I have been flat out writing content for my site. I have just finished my first draft of rough content for the site. I'm just about to go and comment on a few sites. It's been a hard week but I will get there.

Thanks

Anthony

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hey Kyle,
Just went premium! Sorry I haven't wrote back any sooner been busy doing the training and figuring out where I am heading.

Your right finding a niche is horrible at the moment... I have started a site about education programs for kids. I think this is possibly a bit broad at this stage so I was thinking of narrowing it to kindy to year 3 to start with as I have a 5 year old daughter just about to go into year 1.

I would also like to thank you for contacting me and introducing yourself, it was probably the deciding factor to getting me to join.

Thanks for everything so far, and I'll see you in Vegas :)

Yeah, definitely narrow it down to something much more specific when it comes to education for kids. That is far too broad. When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)
