About EBeins
Joined August 2019
I am a father of three beautiful kids of my own, Nick, Viviene and Abigail and two kids of my wife Sofia, Aldi and Afi. My life has been turbulent, to say the least.

I have been married three times. Opportunities have come and gone in my life but now I am embarking on the greatest one. The wonderful world of Affiliate Marketing.

I was born in the Netherlands and through Karen my first wife, she is Australian, we moved to Melbourne Australia, my son Nick was 5 years old, it was 1998.

Exciting times, new place, new opportunities. I was working at Nestle at the time before I left for the Land down under.

My brother-in-law Graeme had his own business and offered me a job to get his production of toner cartridges going.

2 months later his business went into receivership and unknown to me that he was in financial trouble.

I was out of a job again, so back out in the job market again. Went to interview and got comments from interviewers that "I was overqualified" and "if I had Australian experience?"

I said to them at the time "isn't that a good thing that I have lots of skills and experience", but I guess they were just afraid, that I would take their jobs.

And to the Australian experience question, I answered, "if you can tell me what that is, I have worked all around the world and so far and I only have come across humans, are you a different type of race down here?". It was silence after that.

It didn't land me the job though, but it gave me a huge satisfaction. That is when I decided to start my first business, the year was 1999. It was a business in promotional products for other businesses to give to their clients.

Although I had many skills, I lacked in business skills. And there wasn't much help around. So mainly my business failed because I didn't have the marketing skills to promote my products.

I focused too much on the products and not enough on my sales network.

I ran out of money and went through my first spell of depression. Back to the job market again.

I scored myself a job teaching manufacturing workers how to program industrial robots. I had done industrial automation in the Netherland for Nestle. How hard can it be and I learned while I was on the job and I learned fast.

It gave me my first inside in how do you teach other people new skills, although the job was way below my ability I worked my way up quickly in the company.

Disaster struck again, my marriage of 12 years broke down, my wife Karen at the time, she had a split personality. She had these enormous mood swings and I couldn't cope with it any longer, so we broke up.

I got the opportunity to become the Service Manager for South Australia with the company I was working for. And I took it. Moved to South Australia to start over again.

Got married again in 2003 to my second wife Janti, she was from Indonesia. The year is 2006, the work was drying up for the company I was working for in South Australia because of economical downturn so I joined a local automation company. To build up their knowledge and skills in robotics and automation.

Forward again 2010 decided to start my own Robotics and Automation company in Adelaide South Australia with a partner. We were doing well and business was growing, we supplied the local automotive market for Holden (General Motors).

The year is 2014 disaster strikes again Holden announces they are going to close the factory in 2017. Going from having a business to no business in a blink of an eye. We close up shop and moved on.

Back to the job market again, scored a job with one of my customers to redesign their product for being automated and cutting production costs.

This time I moved to Perth Western Australia.

The year is 2016, I am being laid off because I was too good at my job, I redesigned their product in 4 months, build a new prototype and it worked 30% better than the old one and was 20% cheaper.

I got laid off because I did myself out of a job and my engineering colleagues were saying bad things about me because they felt that I made them look bad. I can see the point now.

Tried to start up another business in Perth in a different field, but my heart wasn't really in it. My wife decided to play around my back with other guys and my marriage broke down again. I got divorced again.

I guess I am just like a cat, I seem to always land on my feet again. No matter what life throws at me. One door closes and another door opens.

I score a job as a surveyor, working in the mining industry in Western Australia.

Work is not hard, just need to walk 16 to 22 km a day with 15 kilos of equipment and do gravity readings in the outback. Temperatures can go up to 45 degrees Celsius. But hey, free exercise, fresh air, meals are catered for and nothing to worry about.

The good thing is I am outside all-day, see the beautiful sunrises every day.

Come across all sorts of wildlife. I can clear my mind and process my thought and become sane again.

I make a decision that I want to live a meaningful life, I want to have passive income and not having to go to a job again.

The year is 2019, to be exact June 2019. I got married again to my girlfriend and now my wife Sofia. She lives at the moment in Indonesia and I live in Perth Western Australia.

August this year I started my affiliate marketing journey with SFM. I decide that SFM wasn't for me after a one-month trial.

If you are interested you can read my review here. https://howdoyoustartonline.com/six-figure-mentors-review-scam-or-is-it-worth-your-money-and-time/.

It is now the 26th of August 2019 and I remember that I had a look at Wealthy Affiliate before in 2013. Luckily I still had the link on my chrome browser.

I started with Wealthy Affiliate again and realised now what an opportunity I missed in 2013 but hey that is how life goes.

One door closes another door opens. Or what the Chinese say "You can only become a good tea if you go through some hot water"

And believe me, I have been through plenty. I am still very positive and believe in the goodness of people.

In your life, certain things will work out and other things won't. If you worry too much what can happen along the way, you will never start living your life.

You might think after reading this that I had a hard life but I don't see it that way. On my journey through life, I have been fortunate enough to travel to 70 different countries, I have loved 3 women, in my life and live now with the love of my life Sofia.

I have 5 kids, ranging from 26 to 12, they give me love, joy and sorrow, but I wouldn't miss it for the world. Yes, I had adversity in my life, but have no reason to complain.

I am 52 years young and I have just realised that I am embarking on the greatest adventure of my life. I am going to live a life of abundance. An abundance of love, joy and sorrow with the people whom I love.

My motto is, live your life today, be the best you can be today, don't put the things you plan to do today onto tomorrow because tomorrow will never come, it is always today!

Be your natural self, that is the only person you can be, everyone else is already taken.

Cheers

Eric.

Excellent Eric, I know you will achieve your goals. As you start seeing more progress and results, you will be able to spend more time on your business.

When I started out online, I had limited time because I was in school full time and I was able to achieve "full time" status within the online business world in a year. I totally understand that we all have "time" issues in life, but I absolutely know you can do the same and accomplish the same sort of success!

Take action on the training here, immerse yourself within the community, and ask for help when you need it. This is your sure path to your own personal goals and successes Eric! :)

Hello Eric And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you will no doubt have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve and there will always be something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 500+ blogs I have published within WA.

Also feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Have a great day.

No probs Eric and if/when you read my blogs make sure you choose the ones that will help you in conjunction with whatever training you are currently taking.

Also as a new member you may not be aware of this but it’s a good idea (only if you are interested in your rank within WA) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.

Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing else.

But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your Sunday.

Hi Eric,
Great to see you here at Wealthy Affiliate and thank you for following me.
I enjoyed reading your bio, very interesting life you have led!

I looked at SFM before joining WA and decided not to go after reading several reviews and discovering its really a Multi Level Marketing scheme!

So glad I joined this wonderful place!

All the best

Tony, I joined SFM for about a month to check them out. They gave me the money back as they promised. They have got nice people but the platform at WA is so much better.

SFM is really into webinars and they keep talking and talking, I myself are more of a doer. Just give me info and let's go.

thanks for your comment, Tony.

cheers

Thanks, Peter, WA is a bloody big place, mate. Most people live in the Perth area. The rest is mostly unoccupied by humans, but I guess there are plenty of snakes around, not to mention all the dingo's that take babies. ;)

All the best to you too Pete!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us.

Wealthy Affiliate is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business. I tried to do this alone before and was completely lost.

Now I know why.

There are so many tricks of the trade and it saves so much time having it all laid out clearly in its training programs.

Keep following the training and exercises every day. Give it a year to see significant results. You'll be a happy camper by then. We all make progress at different rates and it is possible to see meaningful results in 4-6 months. Google cannot be rushed.

Google rewards people with websites that provide value to their visitors. It helps to boost their ad revenue of course! And that helps your websites get high rankings. But it takes time to build credibility. Once they realize your site is an authority site, good things will happen faster.

When you get stuck, and you will, just ask for help in the discussion area located below each lesson. Scroll down to find it. Another member who has the answer will get back to you promptly.

In the meantime have fun with the program. Much success to you.

Cheers!

Edwin
