About ChrisDE
Joined December 2016
Hi everyone,

My name is Chris, I am from Germany, I am a husband a proud father of our 2015-born son Benjamin.

I hold a degree as an Aerospace and Mechanical Engineer and am currently working on an additional degree as a Computer Sciencentist. Besides that I own an Amazon business which I started back about six months ago and just recently I have reached break even - yay!

With the profit I am making there I am hoping to be able to quit my 9-to-5-job some time next year; and thus hopefully have more time to spend with my family and expand my online business even further.

However, I do not want to put all my eggs in one basket - and that is why I am here. I do not want to be all-in on Amazon, but want to have some diversified income streams by building a blog and create a solid passive income.

I hope to learn a lot from you guys and am happy to help where I can.

Best regards,
Chris

Hi Loes,

thank you so much for your kind welcome. I've actually been around for quite a bit already; including having cancelled my membership for about a year and returning just a few weeks ago which I blogged about here :-) However, I just happened to stumble across one of your comments which I liked, so I decided to follow you :-) I'm always eager to learn from the more experienced and return the favor whenever I can.

Thanks for your generous offer of providing support if needed! I love this community so much for this "spirit" and positivity!

All the best to you and your business,
chris

Hello Chris and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you may have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

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

Nice to meet you, ChrisDE. I agree with your idea for multiple streams of income.
Reply
ChrisDE Premium
Hey Peter! Nice to meet you too. Do you already have multiple income streams? What are they, if I may ask? Did you read about that idea in my "I am back" blog post?
Reply
PeterJBarban Premium
I read the info on your bio page. My streams of income come from owning my own cram school, working part-time for a college prep company and private tutoring. Unfortunately, I am in Taiwan and we are experiencing a large drop in the population rate, which means fewer kids and less income for me. WA is my first attempt at an online income stream.

Hey Christian, I just wanted to check in and see if had a chance to start exploring Wealthy Affiliate. If you haven't started the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course - that's the best place to start. It'll take you through the whole process of how to start your website and how the making money stuff works.

Click the green"Get Started Here" button on the left.

PS. One thing people get stuck on a lot is picking a topic or "niche" for their website. If you are having trouble thinking of something to make your website about let me know and we can figure it out together.

PSS. Just about every new member wants to see some success stories! There are too many to list, but here are a few of my favorites:

Merlster Premium
Wow as being a newbie I'm feeling quite motivated right now just because of these success stories :)
Reply
nathaniell Premium
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! :)

Hi Nathaniell, thanks for the heads up. I have two questions to start with:

1) Is the webinar you mentioned above available as recording or only as a live-webinar? For me being based in Europe it is pretty much impossible to attend live webinars and qnas that are hosted some time when it is in the middle of the night over here :-) Therefore, recordings would be highly appreciated!

2) My native language is German, but I can also work, speak, read and write in English :-) Would you suggest to start my blog in German (as I am more fluent in German) or English (to reach out to a greater audience)? Any ideas?

Looking forward to hearing from you,
All the best for 2017,
Chris
Reply
nathaniell Premium
1) Yes, all webinars are recorded and available for replay for Premium members.

2) I would do your website in English. There's more people online buying stuff in English, and you'll be able to get more help with your website within this community. You can always do a second website later in German after you have some experience!
