We came here to manage a boutique hotel in the capital, Quito, but that didn't work out. However, we loved it here so much we decided to stay. We love the coast and moved down here, but still, need to make an income. We found WA a few months ago and we are so grateful because now we will be able to work from home.
Thanks for connecting!

Ecuador sounds like a great place and I believe you will find Wealthy Affiliate will help you reach your goals there. After all Affilate Marketing is on the Internet; half the world is on the Internet; and we are all connected.

Hope to see a niche website about your activities in Ecuador here at WA.

Regards,
Roger

Former?? Boooooo, I'm in AZ! What are you guys doing all the way over there?

I never read your profile guys, so I thought I'd stop by to say hi!

I'm excited for your journey here and I know you two will do great things.

All those things you listed in your profile: fitness, yoga, dog training and scuba diving - you guys have 4 niche sites up and making money yet? :)

In time my friends, in due time!

Ask me anything if you guys are ever stuck, just PM me.

Wish you guys were still here. :(

But, maybe you'll come back to visit! :P

Anyway, let me go respond to your comment,

Wow, thanks for reading about us, Grace.

We lived in Scottsdale and had our pet business there and in Paradise Valley.

We came down here for a hotel management job that didn't work out but we had already fallen in love with the country and decided to move to the coast (we were in the capital of Quito), where we are very happy. However, we found ourselves still needing to make an income and decided to explore the online world. After much research, we found WA, thank goodness not one of the 'others'.

We are learning Spanish and are almost fluent. We study daily as we truly believe one should speak the language of the country one is living in. English is spoken very little here.

Thank you for your very kind offer and maybe someday we will see you in AZ. Colette's brother still lives there.

Your friends in Ecuador,

Colette and Philip

That's very cool story of you two. :) Very much enjoyed learning more about you guys.

I'm glad you guys found WA, you are in good hands here. That's great you guys are learning Spanish too, it's great to be always learning in different ways!

You guys are truly living the life, great to see. :)

Best,
Grace

Awesome background. Equador seems to be a popular place for Americans. Hope it is going well for you both. (News today that Senator John McCain is discontinuing cancer treatment. I assume that means he is moving into palliative care. He is a true American hero who has shown all of us how to live an honorable life). Best of luck to you.

Hi, I just joined in May. Since you're about a month ahead of me and also "not so tech-savvy", and look to be about the same age as me, I was wondering: do you take one lesson/day? Or just what you feel like that day? Your thoughts are appreciated. Thanks so much! Ashley

Hello, Ashley,
Thanks for connecting with us.
We are in the fortunate position of not having to go through the WA course at the same time as holding down regular jobs. Having said that, we are still taking the course slowly and, having joined two months ago, we have only just finished Level 2 of Online Certification Course.
Don't get us wrong, we need to make money but we are determined to ensure that we understand the system completely and which is why we are taking our time.
So, go at your own pace because there is a lot to learn. But don't be afraid to reach out to the WA community. There are lots of people who are really happy to help you.
Hope this is useful to you and we wish you all the best.

Good morning, Manta Ecuador; Colette and Philip.
Intrigued,I am coming over to you from a comment you have made On VeraHelzis's Profile site and to say "Welcome Friends"

Reading your bio is inspiring in that I've always wanted to travel throughout the western South American countries and stay long enough to learn of these cultures...such is my hope to do through my endeavor here at WA.

You have busy and wonderful interests. I am very curious if the Scuba Diving is done off the coast of Ecuador or do you travel again to other locations to enjoy this adventure? Having traveled a fair amount in the western Caribbean I know of some very wonderful locations there but unfamiliar elsewhere.

Anyway as is my habit and adds to my learning, I look forward to reading more of your thoughts and successes through the post feature...and yours are to be, I'm sure, some of my favorites...Shine brilliant Colette And Philip.

Looking toward positive outcomes...respectfully David

Hello David! What a wonderful message, thank you for taking the time. Thanks for your follow. We are following you back.

We do dive off the coast of Ecuador and even where we live, in Manta. The diving generally isn't as dramatic as some places we have been (of course the Galapagos is exceptional but we have not been there yet. It is hugely expensive) , although the other day we had a very exciting dive with Manta rays, which come here seasonally, and on the way out we encountered a pod of humpback whales. Are you a diver?

Having lived in many different places around the world, including the Caribbean, we have finally found our permanent home here in Ecuador. The climate, particularly here on the coast, is wonderful, the scenery is breathtaking and the people are the nicest we have met anywhere. We are still learning Spanish because we feel it is important to speak the language of the country you are living in. Without this, we feel, one cannot immerse oneself in the local culture.

We hope some day you will be able to see this part of the world. Guess we all need to work hard here at WA, which we are loving by the way, to achieve our goals.

Hoping all your dreams come true,

Your WA friends in Manta, Colette and Philip

Colette and Philip,
I thought as much, in your enjoyment and discovery of the path that you have chosen.

Open-minded people allow themselves to be transparent and it is one of the finer qualities of a human experience allowing others to know us.. I am so glad you both are here to share

To answer the question of diving- I've never been, but a snorkeling enthusiast I am. With the right convincing and instruction I would try your sport - as you might suggest , it would bring a whole new world to my wonder and curiosity.

Please be the ones to write posts frequently of your adventures and accomplishments- it entirely makes my day.

Kind regards, David

You guys sound like you have had a busy and interesting life. The training is set up so you do not need to be to tech savvy but it creeps in and there are some very IT literate people to learn from Loes, Marian Black, Moz Mary and others that I can't remember at the moment. All the best

Thank you Keisi and we would still be interested to learn if you are still in Costa Rica or if you made the switch to Panama. We have visited both countries and, in particular, explored Panama a couple of years ago with a view to moving there. We ultimately settled on Ecuador, and love it here, but Costa Rica and Panama are both beautiful. All the best,

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! :)

CandP Premium
Thanks, Kyle! We are really enjoying the course and have now started our list of niche ideas, of which we have so many, (all in good time, we know), but seeing your video has really helped us understand the process better. We are having fun and I can't say we are stressed out or overwhelmed, just excited. This is just what we have been looking for. Stay tuned for more...we will run things by you of course as we finalize what our first website will be. Colette and Philip
