About ChristianWA
Joined August 2015
Hi and thanks for viewing my profile. I'm Christian and I've been dabbling in varying forms of online entrepreneurship since about 2007. I joined WA in August of 2015 when I happened upon an affiliate link. My success has been very limited in my online ventures and I feel fortunate to have found WA.

I have a day job and am very successful in my career. I've been in software development (mostly database centric) since 1998. I'm currently a Senior Database Architect for a large eCommerce solution and have held many other titles including Database Administrator and Database Developer. I was in management for a short stint but found the paper pushing very unappealing.

I initially started looking into ways to supplement my family's income due to some self inflicted financial hardship. While my income has been fair to good since I started in my career in technology, we had made some egregious decisions, financially. Initially I was looking for a quick fix and fell victim to a few scams that are out there. Fortunately, we did not lose much other than time.

While our debt to income has now been largely mitigated, I'm now looking for a different reason. I want more time with my wife and three children. I want to be able to work when I want to work. In my profession, I'm typically on call 24/7 and I cannot remember the last vacation or holiday that was not interrupted at some point by a work call. I also want to call my own shots.

I have been married to a beautiful woman for 20 years. We have three children together aged from 9 - 19 at the time of this writing. I am a motorcycle enthusiast and play guitar. I have been riding and playing for my entire life. Both pastimes are really a part of my identity.

Thanks for stopping by my profile. I wish you the most success in your endeavors, whatever they may be. If there is anything I can do to help just message me or leave me a comment.
ChristianWA's Goals 3
Money Goals
I'm brand new to this so I'm going to try to set some realistic goals here.

1. $500/month - This will allow some flexibility with my family's budget and allow my wife and I to have our own vacation separate from that of the kids - something we desperately need.
2. $10,000/month - This would allow me an early retirement from my day job which is a strong goal of mine. I really want to be able to be financially free, having our house paid off and be semi-retired by the age of 55 which is only 11 short years away. My initial goal was to semi-retire by 45 but we have missed that. It's important to me that I will be able to spend a lot of quality time with the woman who has given birth to our three great kids.
3. Realistically I have around 15 hours per week that I can devote to this effort.

I love your goals Christian!

I think they are very realistic & I know you can achieve in time if you follow the advice I've laid out here: . You're part of the WA family now! So you have all you need to achieve these goals in time. Either way I'll be here for you and so will the rest of the WA community.

Just give me a holla if you need anything Christian!

You absolutely can and you will achieve these goals (and likely beyond) Christian! Dedicate yourself to your goals and take action on what you learn here. Action leads to success and I have never seen anyone fail that doesn't quit.

I look forward to working with you and do let me know if you need a hand along the way. :)

What is "realistic?"

I think what I'm trying to convey is what is realistic for me to see within the next 6 months of working on this 15 hours per week. Goals should be attainable and if what I've read is true $500/month should be attainable for me, with some hard work.

Hey Christian ,

I just wanted to follow up and see if you need anything. I see you've already taken action and completed your account profile! That's wonderful! It just goes to show you're able to follow directions and are serious about making this business work! Trust me when I say that's half the battle to success online! So you're part of a rare breed! However I see you haven't upgraded to the premium membership.

If it's because money is tight, I can hook you up. Read the following as you'll learn how others have been able to easily pay for this membership: http://bit.ly/afford_wa

At the end of the day you're obviously an action taker unlike a lot of people that may join this community and fail to do anything. As such you should be rewarded for that. So I wanted to remind you of the special bonus I'm offering you:

HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUS
-----------------------------------------------

If you join Premium within the next 4 days, here are some bonuses that I am going to be giving you:

(1) You are going to get a 59% DISCOUNT on your first month Premium membership (only $19)

(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there and even the owners of WA (Kyle & Carson) will be able to offer you personal mentoring.

(3) I am going to be giving a special "Diamond Traffic Bonus"

But only if you join in the next 4 days!

You're obviously not required to take advantage of this great offer. But the starter membership can only take you so far. It's clear as day you want to succeed. Otherwise you wouldn't have completed your profile. So I'd like to hook you up with the bonus above!

There is so much more in the way of videos, courses, live chat and private message capabilities that will help you get to the next level quicker. So keep that in mind. In fact, just check out the differences between the starter and premium membership here: I think it will help you see all that you'll get if you take advantage of the bonus and discount I'm offering you. In any event, great job again for taking action and completing your profile!

Keep taking action because every time you do it brings you closer to your success!

Take care,

Eddy with a Y

P.S. Remember if you can't afford the premium membership, I can hook you up here: http://bit.ly/afford_wa

Hey Christian!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate my friend! Just in case you forgot, I am Eddy with a y. LOL We met back on my blog: http://www.WorkAtHomeNoScams.com. I'm happy my babbling didn't scare you away and you had enough trust in me to give WA a shot!

Trust me when I say you made the right decision and you're going to love this community! You're on your way to building a long term online business like yours truly did because of the training and support here at WA!

That said, let's get you started on the right note so you can get the most out of your time here. As a new member, the first thing you should do is fill out your account profile. Don't even trip, it's really easy to do. All it consists of is the following simple steps:

(1) Add your profile image
(Can be anything you want. Just don't make it dirty. lol)

(2) Add a personal description.
(Let us know about yourself and why you're here at WA!)

That's it!

If you do these simple steps it will really show you're serious about learning how to succeed at this business and people will be more likely to answer your questions and help you if they see you've taken the two minutes to complete your profile. If you need help on doing this, watch the following video: Next you should definitely check out the "Get Started Here" training. This is going to get you up and running with your own website very quickly and has a lot of really easy to follow video training that is going to help this whole "process" make sense.

Here is a direct link to this training: If at any time you need help, just ask. There are a ton of good folks here within the community that will be more than happy to help you out and within the first 7 days of your Starter membership you are going to have access to Live Chat, so make sure you check that out. Just remember people are more inclined to help you if you've completed your account profile as described above.

I also have sweet bonus for those of you that are "action takers"...

HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUS
-----------------------------------------------

If you join Premium within the first 7 days, here are some bonuses that I am going to be giving you:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)

(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there and even the owners of WA (Kyle & Carson) will be able to offer you personal mentoring.

(3) I am going to be giving a special "Diamond Traffic Bonus"

But only if you join in your first 7 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, I thought I would personally welcome you. As you can see I don't just promote WA, I'm actually here as a member waiting to help you! So reach out to me. Start by filling out your profile. Don't be shy. I won't bite.

Again, it's great having you as a member of WA! It truly shows you're serious about earning a legitimate living online and WA will show you the process I've used to be successful!

I look forward to reading your profile and hearing from you. So go fill that out now. I really want to know more about you so I can help you achieve your goals!

Speak to you soon Christian!

Your buddy,
Eddy with a Y. (Get it right. LOL)
