About Derekmarshal
Joined October 2015
40 year young travel addict looking for online success to top up a disability pension and to spread the love and help others gain freedom from being stuck to:

1) a desk job
2) a set schedule
3) a particular location.

I am very interested in Niche marketing and obtaining a passive or relatively passive income. I am also interested in Video sites, email marketing, running a newsletter and paid to tweet business.
The goal of online success I aim for is

1) Work no more than 3 or 4 hrs daily, Monday to Friday.
2) Earning US$6,000 (200,000 Thai Bahts or 24,000 Malaysian Ringgits) monthly every month as a minimum.
3) Ecstatic earning what I feel I am worth US$30k/month or 1 million Bahts Monthly 120,000 Malaysian Ringutts.

4) Use that wealth to enjoy life a lot more (travel more!) and help those less fortunate than myself such as orphans and the homeless. Perhaps even setting up my own foundation. Spend time volunteering. Give love and get love back!

I would love to to know how to makes some cash Blogging about Football (soccer) and just one team in particular..My team!

Xinj Chao Haroda!

Just seen you are from Viet Nam. I spend quite a lot of time there, Nha Trang and Da Nang!. Just left few caps ago after a 3 month stay...really missing my Bahn Mi, Pho Bo, Bo Ne and ohhh paper salad!

Cool beans!!! Xin Chào Derek. I am so glad you have visited Vietnam. It's a beautiful country.

I had an opportunity to take my kids back to Vietnam in 2016 and we visited Da Nang. I am originally from Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City). So many changes. It was an amazing experience.

Thank you for sharing your experiences.

I was in HCMC and I will be going there to study Vietnamese...despite using the Latin alphabet..so hard to learn (at least reading) like the D in Ao Dai is pronunced like a Y...many others like that.

I found Thai much easier to learn.

The time to really enjoy Da Nang is now, so glad I have had that experience (actually I was there when APEC was happening!) as in 10 years time..gonna be like Miami beach and so full of tourists and tourism.

I'm guessing you seen Hoi An also. :-)

haroda Premium
Vietnamese is not very easy to learn. I agree. Kudos to you for learning it. It is a tonal language so you have to be in the listening of the ups and downs tone of the language. I do not know much about Thai so I can't compare.

Da Nang has resorts with roller coaster rides, etc. It's crazy. I can see it can be over developed in 10 years. When I was there, they were adding more dirt to extend the beach further with more hotels and resorts coming soon.

Yes, I have been to Hoi An, Ha Long Bay, and Sapa up north. Ran out of time. There are still so much to do and see in Vietnam that I have not been too also.

Looking forward to come back again soon!!!

derekmarshal Premium
The tones as easy as Thai is tonal. Some things are similar (like the words for airport only slightly different). Still building along the beach in Da Nang.

Been looking to register my digital business in Vietnam as I really like there. Obviously I'll get a better and longer visa even if soo expensive (8m VND +3.5M VND stamp fee at the airport!).

Be sure to buzz me when you are in Vietnam next time.

Derek do You have a favorite team in football [soccer?]. You might want to check out if there is any fantasy football for soccer. If You know a lot about each team, and can talk about the team within the 3-4 hours for 3-4 teams in a days time of that 3-4 hours with fresh posts each week. Be able to offer some lead help to the fans that come on your site that also share, Like, and subscribe to your YouTube fantasy football site that your website has a link for. You just might be able to do what you set out to do.

Great to hear that you're a full-time marketer :-)
In Kota Kinabalu (KK) the internet speed is quite okay. My internet connection is 4mbps, maybe I'll upgrade when my site starts making consistent sales.
Reply
derekmarshal Premium
4Mb/s is actually Ok but do you have good fiber optic in the touristic areas?

We got that speed here but no fiber optic in the UNESCO area of Georgetown. Sometimes I have to rely on my phone and tether it to my laptop to get some work done!
Reply
Borneoman Premium
I don't think so. Fiber optic is only available in the city or urban area. I'm sure the government is working on it.

Two years ago I heard the government is going to provide more fiber optic ports in Sabah, but so far there's not much improvement.

Hey Derek, good to meet you and enjoyed your above statement. We have similar interests for example the homeless and orphanages that we sow into or give back to help others less fortunate.

I truly understand about the day job or being tied to the desk and time constraints and schedules.

More freedom I say, to do what is of greater value to us and the passion and zeal in helping others to achieve like wise.

Derekmarshal - You just joined WA not too long but your rank is 218. what the meaning of ranking from low to high ( means from small number to large number)?
Reply
derekmarshal Premium
Rank means nothing. It is not important.It is of no indication of your knowledge or ability as a blogger or webpreneur or how much you are making. My rank is based primarily on hard work, creating content and comments on the comments engine.

That is all I do! just create new blog posts and comment on other peoples blogs.

Don't get lost or caught up in this rank thing or the chat feature (sure I use it but very rarely)
