Wealthy Affiliate, Ecuador, and Manta Rays, what do they have in common?.Us!
We all have different dreams of what we want to achieve in life.
Our dream was to live in a beautiful place whilst working in a field we enjoyed and which would give us the financial flexibility to pursue our passion and, at the same time, be able to help others.
Living in Ecuador
After living and working in many parts of the world (Belize, Palau, Hawaii, Saipan and St. Lucia to name a few), we now find ourselves living in the beautiful city of Manta, Ecuador.
Serendipity led us here and we know that, after all our travels, we have finally found our home.
The countryside is gorgeous, the climate is fantastic (year round temperature varies between 70 and 85 degrees) but what really makes it for us are the people, who are amongst the friendliest and most welcoming we have ever encountered.
Of course, this is not everyone’s idea of paradise, but it’s ours.
Our Passion....Scuba Diving
Even though we worked as scuba instructors (and believe us, it is very hard work!) for many years, diving is still our greatest passion. For us, nothing compares with that first moment that you descend below the surface. Our breathing slows down, our bodies relax and our hearts and minds open to the wonders of the underwater world. We enjoy everything we witness from the tiniest critters to the magnificent Manta Rays that are visiting our part of the coast right now.
The Pacific Ocean is right at our doorstep and this affords us the opportunity to feed our passion whenever we choose.
Unfortunately, we are not retired and, to continue to enjoy our current lifestyle, we still need an income.
Enter, Wealthy Affiliate.
From the moment we discovered the Wealthy Affiliate program, we realized we had found that missing component which would allow us to remain in Ecuador, enjoy our passion, and have the opportunity to help others.
We joined Wealthy Affiliate in April of this year and became Premium members almost immediately. We are now progressing steadily through the Certification Course. The most constant advice that we are seeing from other members is to stick with the training and do things in the correct sequence. We believe this is absolutely the best way to achieve success.
Most people have preconceived fears and doubts when starting anything new whether it be learning how to scuba dive or embarking on a new career in Affiliate Marketing. If you have a solid training program to follow and the right support and encouragement, you will achieve success, whether that is your first dive as a Certified Diver, or that first check from Amazon!
Because of the quality of the training here, the many tools that are available to us and the incredible support from other members, we feel confident that we will succeed.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post and, whatever they may be, may all your dreams come true!
Your friends in Ecuador,
Colette and Philip
