About BrianCheng
Joined June 2018
Stop thinking. Take action. Press "START".

A little more about Brian, 10 Aug 2018.

An ordinary folk who struggled to make ends meet for the first half of his life. Quit my job some months ago to start another journey for the second half of my life. While I enjoy the peace of mind of being "retired" (or unemployed actually) in the first few months, life was a little boring.

Affiliate Marketing was a new name to me before May 2018. I found this topic when surfing on YouTube. Made the right choice to join Wealthy Affiliate as free starter member in June, earned my unique badge of "Premium Starter" on Jul 11, and got my first website https://firstmarathonrun.com/ on Aug 1.

I used to be an engineer in product development and manufacturing, play soccer when I was young, switched to running after 30. I run marathons, finished 25 and failed 4.

I live in Hong Kong with my wife, our son and daughter.

Brian have a quick question about living abroad so I am happy that you have pushed follow on my network, i shall do the same.

The question in fact comes in the form of a request to post something more of how you have come to live in HongKong and if you have in fact lived in the United States prior to this.

I am dedicated to building my network and online platform in hopes of traveling the world in which we all share, hoping that will include East Asia and China

I'll check back with you in the near future to learn more

Hello Brian, sorry for the late response. My name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I'm following you back.You had guts to quit your job to try and start something new. I couldn't afford to be that drastic. I instead use my online platform more as a gateway to eventually become full time. If you are making it work then Kudos to you!
I look forward to working with you and helping you any way you need. I wish you much success and enjoyment in your online journey.

Hello Brian,
Thank you very much for following me. I have also run many marathons in my life. In some I have reached the final goal, in others, I had to leave. I still continue running marathons I think I'll never leave... The road is made when walking, what do you think?

Hello Claudio,

Glad to know you are a marathoner too.

Everyone has his own goal of success and has a unique path, keep learning and practicing then we will see the road ahead. Start with walking, keep moving forward, some time later, we can made the road to success by running. LOL.

Keep running and enjoy the journey.

I hope you did press 'start' lol. We are glad to have you on board and the Wealthy Affiliate platform is the best on the internet. You will learn far more here than anywhere else and the owners are always dropping in to see how we are doing and if you cannot get a resolution to a situation Kyle is only an e-mail away. I don't know anywhere else where the owners of a company take such an interest in their people. If there is anything I can help you with please feel free to ask. I am always happy to help newcomers as I was one myself once.

Hello Brian And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring back to the training.
If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 430+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me PM anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

No probs Brian and if/when you read my blogs make sure you choose the ones that will help you in conjunction with whatever training you are currently taking.

Also you may not be aware of this but it’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.

Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing else.

But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your Thursday.

Hi Brian,
Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate and congratulations on going premium your journey is about to go cosmic, you will not regret your decision.

Enjoy the fantastic training here at Wealthy Affiliate and keep moving forward. If you ever get stuck or need a point clarified, ask the community a question and the answer will soon be provided.

It would be great if you could add a little more to your profile. You might want to consider perhaps giving your name in the Bio, where you are from, if you have a job at present or in the past. Other areas of your life, things you like or dislike and maybe how you arrived at WA.

These are only suggestions of course but it would help the community to get to know a little better. It's totally your call.

I wish you well on your WA journey and have added you to my network to see your success.

All the best.

Hello and welcome to premium! You'll be so glad you did... I'm not quite the expert on technical matters so I wasn't understanding all that was involved in the transfer of my old website to my new one and WA support spent all day with me, giving me their personal attention because I just wasn't getting it. So I tell you this to say when I WA says they are here for you every step of the way THEY MEAN IT! If you want people who b care about your personal success.... Then you've come to the right place!!! Welcome to the family!

Hi Brian, How is the training going? Don't forget that I am here if you need any help :o)

If I am not here you can always ask questions to the community, the best way to ask (in my opinion) is by using the "big wide white question tab" at top of this site.

Or the "grey pen tab" in the upper right corner of this site.

That way your questions will get answered in the fastest possible time.

Greetings from Sweden!

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! :)

Welcome Brian to Wealthy Affiliate!

Great to see that you made it! :) You really got a great opportunity here and you have made a very wise decision to try things out.

Here is EVERYTHING you need to be able to start making a consistent passive income online in the form of your own business and then scale it to... The sky is the limit I would say.

You have to get the ball rolling though, and that might take a while if you are completely new to all this... For me, it took 4 months, others have done it a lot faster and other a lot slower also... What I try to say here is that it is up to you.

Focus, be consistent and,
Simply, follow (at your own pace) the course material step-by-step instructional videos and you will be able to progress pretty fast.

What you do to get started is very simple:

1. Set up your account (put a profile pic and a text presentation)
2. Go to “get Started Here” course!

You find it within the main menu (BIG GREEN button).

Or, with this link here: Key to success is to interact and ask A LOT of questions. I promise that you will get ANY question answered!

What does it take to succeed here?

Consistency is the key.

Put at least 5-10hour/week on this (more if you can) and things will start to fall in place very quickly!

Remember to ALWAYS ask for help if there is something you are not sure about!

There are thousands of GREAT people here, you can learn from many of them, they are willing to help, and basically, all of them had the same questions that you have at some point, including myself :o)

BONUS!!

If you decide to become more serious and go Premium, you can, of course, do that whenever you want.

However, if you do it within you first 7days you are going to get the "action taker" bonus, your first month for $19!

I will also throw in a personal "secret surprise bonus" to you if you go premium within 7 days.

I wish you Success!

/John
