About Cheenzie
Joined March 2020
What should I say about myself? I am 37 years old live in Canada. I come from an Italian background and therefore love my food and red wine:) I have a very well-paying and stable job that comes with many medical/health benefits and retirement pension. Despite this, I have always felt that I am missing the passion for my job but I have never been a risk taker to be an entrepeneur. As the years go on, I am more and more determined not to spend as much time at work because I am newly married and want to start a family. In addition, health and fitness & travel are my two passions but these are both 2 very competitive fields and although I can use these in the affiliate marketing world, I want a career in affiliate marketing to allow me to be able to personally enjoy these 2 passions more often.

This crisis going on with the Corona virus has happened at a very crucial point in my life. For the first time, I followed my dream to take a 1 year sabbatical to travel. Since as yound as 16 years old, I wanted to do this but always put education and career first. Well finally, after 3 years of planning with my husband and getting this approved with work (may I add this is a one shot deal), we left on September 1, 2019. I enjoyed every second of the 6 months travelling, visiting 16 Countries and then my dream came to an end halfway through the year sabbatical, forcing my husband and I to return to Canada and we are now in self-isolation. This crisis may possibly last long enough that we will not be able to travel again but we hope that we may be able to recover some time this summer and travel some more before having to return to work in September.

So where does this crisis and recent travelling experiennce leave me? It has given me the time to really reflect on my life and how short and precious it is. One thing for sure is that I want to travel MORE. But the other thing that is very clear to me right now the is the current ECONOMIC crisis - because of my stable job, I have no financial worries. So on the one hand, exploring other options like affiliate marketing seems irrational because I have financial stability with my current job for the rest of my life. But on the other hand, I know there is something missing for me and I will only be able to figure that out by trusting my gut and trying. At this moment I have all the TIME necessary to explore, learn and implement a game plan in affiliate marketing. I have nothing to lose right?

I look forward to learning and getting to know this community. As much as this seems so overwhelming because I have zero skills in this domain, I am going to take a leap of faith and trust the process.

How much money per month would you be happy earning?

How much money per month would allow you to live the ideal lifestyle?

How many hours per week are you willing to invest to achieve these goals?
10-15 (when back at work) Now I can give more.
Its humble that you gave thought to returning to work. I encourage you take notice to what you will give now and really challenge that first thought.

Hi Cheenzie and thanks for following me, I'm following you back.

I like the fact you are using this extra time we all have to reflect and be grateful for the good things in your life. I think a lot of us are doing that. I've not been busier, even though I've been unable to do my usual job with no pay for a few weeks now. I'm still viewing this extra time as a blessing

Keep strong and be safe.

Kind regards, Graham.

Hello Nicole,

You are right. Given the whole totality of what is going on today, nothing has been this scary and exciting at the same time. This is the perfect time to reset button. In fact, I think God wants us to STOP and REFLECT. Take this down a notche and reassess who we are and how we can be better.

Good luck and I look forward to seeing your success.

Hi Cynthia,

Welcome to WA. You will do very well following the nudge within to expand into more of what you love.

You're right, none of us know what chain of events will unfold that will impact us directly or indirectly.

The training will help significantly so this domain won't remain new:-)

Thanks for the follow, I'll do the same!

Congratulations on going premium, I am sure that you have made the correct decision.
With more than 2 million members this really is a great community full of help and support should you need it.
I am doing the Bootcamp training which I really am learning so much from, and I know that you can learn a lot from wealthy affiliate and become a success in affiliate marketing.
I am following you and look forward to hearing about your achievements.
Kind regards,

Hey Matt! I am loving the experience so far. Funny there are so so many online money making programs and was always skeptical. I am happy to have chosen the one that is really worth my time and I may end being one of those marketing for WA. Never say never.

I am currently adding images for the first time to my site and I'm getting the jitters:)

Follow me back and let's be sure to keep in touch.

Welcome to the WA premium community and congratulations on all of your success so far. You have made a great step toward online business success here at WA. This is my eighth month at WA and I must say that my time here has been great.

I urge you to get stuck in to the training as soon as you can because there is a lot of in depth information which will really benefit you in the long run. Once you complete each part of your training then post it on the community and people will congratulate and encourage you.

When I came to WA I already knew some WordPress Design Skills and I thought that the training would be a breeze and maybe I would not need to follow it as much. Basically I was wrong and although the training is easy to follow there was so much I did not know. I would recommend sticking to the step by step approach and getting your site up and running.

I spent the first month building my site and following training before I realised the importance of the community. I would encourage you to engage with all of the Members on WA. They have so much knowledge and information to share. You can learn a lot from people all over the world.

I now have 4 active websites and I am starting to see small amounts of money coming in.

On WA you can write a blog everyday if you wish. Let everyone know about your success or your ideas, ask for input or help or even offer others help. I have found this to be one of the most rewarding features of WA.

I hope you get everything you need.
Enjoy the experience.

Hello Mark. Thank you so much for taking the time to write me such a long and warm welcome. Each day, or in fact, several times each day, I am continuously impressed with the community at WA. EVERYONE is just so motivated, humble, inspiring and willing to help. And it is both people who have JUST got here and those who have been here for years. So it is not just a temporary thing lol

I am always amazing when someone says they are managing more than one website, let alone 4. How do you have enough time? Do you work full-time as well? Or do you just become super efficient? Anyway like you said, I will follow the training...one day at a time and it will fall into place:)

I will start to blog more often...for some reason that seems still very intimidating to me lol I am sure I will get over it.

Cheers Mark - STAY HEALTHY

Wow. I just read you bio and I totally get you. I am in the same sort of position as you. I have a good reliable job that many people are jealous of because I work in Graphic Design and Exhibition Display. During the virus I am paid so I have no worries at that end at all.


I tried to set up many physical companies over the years but never really got any further than the planning stage. I have set up and run companies for other people but not myself.

It is such a shame that your journey came to an early end but, I am sure you will hit the trails again with your husband (Maybe Kids later)

As to my time with business. I am a bit of a special beast. I just keep going. I have written over 200 blogs here on WA since I started + about 300 on my sites.

If I have down time I blog. If I am alone I blog. I was lucky to have Website design skills already, although I have learned so much from WA, I was already a few steps ahead in that direction. My only real hobby is Mountain Biking so I have lots of time for blogging. I also only tend to sleep for a few hours.

I love your attitude. Health and fitness are very competitive but, my health site has bought in the most so far. I tend to get sales on sports equipment.

Most people here follow the training and do what they love as a niche. If you can do something that is a more productive niche, that will allow you to do more of what you love.

This rule is the same in the real world. I would suggest you have at least one site doing what you love. I find this to be a massive stress release.

Thanks for Connecting.
