About CharlesL1
Joined February 2016
Hello,

My name is Charles K. Letness, but I go by Chuck. I am a licensed ESL (English as a Second Language) instructor and I have taught ESL abroad in many different countries, from Southeast Asia all the way to Europe. I am very passionate about traveling. Sometime within the next year, I would like to move to South America, Colombia to be exact.

I am here because I was also in the call center industry and I am subsequently no longer interested in doing call center work. I want to put together an online business and make it grow. I want to be able to take ownership of my success and failures and build from my own professional experiences. In a word, it is time that I start dictating the direction of my professional life and I know through hard work and perseverance, it can be done. I am strong willed and committed once I identify areas that I can build on. I would like to do something with writing, as I have a very strong talent in writing. I am also interested in marketing and marketing research. I am creative and understand sound brand management. I have a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration as well. In addition, I do not put limits on my interests and am always willing to take a look at other possibilities that could yield favorable results.

I am looking forward to seeing what the possibilities are if I put my mind to it.

Hello Chuck and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
There's lots of help here within WA for Newbies and not so newbies.

As you probably know or will find out soon enough internet marketing can be a steep learning curve. Therefore can I suggest you browse some of the 240+ blogs I have published within WA.
I'm sure you will go away with lots of tips and advice.
Thank you for the follow as well and I will follow you.
Remember, you get stuck creating your site or anything else, you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.
Robert

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 last week and the one on sleep apnea has been up for a couple of months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Shawn, I will be happy to look at your websites and see how you built your content and the overall sites themselves. I am interested in looking at your sleep apnea web page and the content. Thanks for the following Shawn and I'll be in touch.

Thank you for the kind words and encouragement upsgirl. I look forward to seeing what I can get from WA. I really have a good feeling about this program and what it can help someone achieve. There are no guarantees of quick riches and ridiculous claims of earning thousands of dollars within the first 30 days type deals with WA. I like that because it tells me that this is legitimate and something that you can invest the hard work in and there is payoff. I deeply appreciate that. I am in the same boat as you and tired of earning money for others, while I toil in an income barely worth mentioning. I didn't go to school and earn a degree to be working in call centers until retirement and I love to travel, as I have thus far visited and lived in more than 40 different countries. I am a licensed ESL instructor and I do enjoy it. I expect to be going to China towards the end of summer and into the fall season coming up, where I expect to have a teaching contract there for a year and then I will go somewhere else. I don't want to continue residing in USA, but rather somewhere warmer. Again, thanks for the words of encouragement and welcoming me to WA premium.

Hi Miles, I did get a chance to look at your website and I must say that I am impressed. I am still reading various items from your website and will leave comments about the topics, some of which are about changes in companies and I do have some opinions about it that would support your views and why adapting to change is so important for company leadership in virtually any industry. Times have changed and they will continue to change as technology advances as well. All the way up until the 1990's and maybe even into the new millennium, people's professional "Shelf life" was a lot longer, however now, the new obsolete is 45-50 years old and in order to stay competitive and to keep yourself as a valued asset to a company, there is really little choice in changing with the times and technology. I think we can all appreciate that change is difficult to deal with, but I also feel that it is vital if someone wants to hold on to their longevity in almost any organization (I read your April 9th, 2016 article about organizational change). I will certainly be adding more to this soon. Thanks again Miles for sharing and your words of encouragement.

Hey Charles! How's the training coming? Enjoying your time here so far? If you need me to look over anything or want my opinion on what you've done so far, just hit reply and I'll be more than happy to take a look!

Real quick, would you rather have a small lemonade stand on your front yard or be the owner of a global juice empire? I know this is a weird question, but this blog post will help clear things up!

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the communique. I am still unemployed but have an interview with a Chinese English School to teach ESL (English as a Second Language) online and I am subsequently broke until I can start generating a regular income, so there is a bit of a struggle, but I welcome it for the sheer challenges it offers. Once I am generating an income, one of the first purchases I plan on making is the premium package with WA and I can't wait until I can get more involved with this. I did watch a tutorial on choosing a niche through WA and I made a list of things that I enjoy or am passionate about and would certainly like to share this with you and get our feedback on what you think would be the most profitable. I would of course send you this once I can private message with you. I hope this can take place soon. Either way Steve, I have thus far really enjoyed being apart of the WA community and I have a goal of getting myself to the point where I am fully committed and generating income through an online based business of my own. Thank you kindly for checking up on my progress Steve and showing a genuine interest in helping me achieve the things that I want.

Regards,

Chuck L.

Hi John and thanks for the welcome message. Thus far, I really enjoy being here on WA and have a strong belief in what WA has to offer. I've found that in order to enjoy the greatest of success it is necessary for someone to have a strong drive to accomplish what they want and this only comes with a genuine interest in what someone is pursuing. I've always worked for a salary but am now sick and tired of not being in control of my own success and making money for others while receiving small proceeds of the lute. WA in my view has been honest and truthful about the realities of starting your own online business and I can wait to set everything up and start investing into my own future and dictating how far I go. Thanks for the kinds words John and I will certainly be in touch.

Everything you say makes perfect sense Chuck. WA does not promise overnight success and that is very realistic. But in time the hard work will pay off. So all the best. Hasta pronto amigo.

What's going on Charles? Hope you have had an awesome week here at WA and you are making some good progress through the training. If you need a little kick in the pants, I've got just the thing for you.

It's my training here titled 'Starting from Scratch: The Strategies I Use to Build & Maintain Successful Websites' It is a Premium training so you may have to check back after you upgrade to get full access!

In the meantime, let me know if there's anything I can do to help!

Hi Steve, thanks for writing me and inquiring about my progress here. It has been a stressful and busy week for me, but I have taken time to at least review the material that has thus far been available to me. I do have one minor concern. I know that my seven day trial period is about up and I really want to upgrade to premium, however my financial situation is in dire straights right now and I simply cannot even afford the $20.00 needed to commit to the premium package WA is offering. What I would like to know is, will this be available to me in the future when I am able to afford the upgrade? I am in between jobs right now and as I stated, I simply cannot afford it at this time; however once I am in a position to upgrade, I most certainly will do so. Some feedback on this would be deeply appreciated.

Thank you Steve,

Chuck L.

Hey Chuck-

Your Starter membership doesn't go anywhere so you can remain a Starter for as long as you need. You do lose communication within WA after 7 days though. The offer to upgrade at $19 does come back around at a later date. I'm not sure when, but if you let me know when you're ready to upgrade and I'll make sure you can get in at the $19 first month for sure.

Hey Charles! 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!

Hi Chuck, and welcome to WA! I hope you are liking the community so far. If you ever have any questions or need help, please let me know. I recommend getting started on the lessons in “Get Started Here” in green on the side menu, or click here: . Make sure to watch all of the videos and complete all of the tasks in each lesson. Get ready to learn A LOT about affiliate marketing and running your own website. :) As for the community itself, I also suggest welcoming new members, building your network, and commenting on blog posts/discussions being held here as much as you can! Again, if you need help or have questions, please let me know! Everyone here is willing to help. We're all growing together. Best of luck to you this year!

Hey Charles 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 Charles, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve

Hi Steve,

Thank you for reaching out and the well wishes. I like what I've seen with WA affiliate thus far. I am impressed by the fact that they are not trying to oversell the "Affiliate bootcamp" feature and that sits quite well with me. It tells me that WA has enough faith and confidence in their product that there is really no need to oversell the feature itself. WA is not trying to make me feel guilty or like I am short changing myself for not taking advantage of the feature so soon in this venture. I will plan to be here everyday, as I am presently unemployed, but will remain here everyday even when new work comes along. I've just recently realized that for myself to be happy in my professional life, and experience financial success, I will have to find an avenue that will allow me to do something that I am passionate about, not by working at a cubicle and earning revenue for other people.

Again, thank you for reaching out and I'll be in touch quite a bit as I move forward with this venture.

P.S. I would like to learn a bit more about your Internet business, where you are writing product reviews.

Regards,

Charles K. Letness (Chuck)
