About Eddie M
Joined August 2013
My name is Eddie. I am a retired male in my late sixties. I was born in Athens, Greece about 67 years ago. In my mid twenties I moved to New York City, USA where I stayed and made a living until 9 years ago when I married to a magnificent Canadian lady and I moved to Canada.
I work since i was 7 years old, helping my father with his side businesses and regular work until my mid teens. From my mid teens until i moved to US, I moonlighted as concrete laying worker, when I was not working in other types of employed work. When i was employed I could not last on a job for more than 1 month. In US, I finally realized what was the reason. Being an employee did not suit me, because I had to work on a job I did not like in order to make a living . So my only way to earn a living was to become self employed by starting my own business that I liked. My first self employeed job was to lease a taxi i drive it. I loved it. Then I bought my own incorporated taxi and I drove it whhile in the same time I bought some books and I learned Business Management/Administration, Bookeepiing Accounting, and Advertising. Total time in the taxi business 11 years! Then i sold the taxi and with 1 partner I started 2 businesses in the field of Special Education for children. That lasted until I left from the US. I was successful in all the business endeavors because I could use my own intuition, creativity, knowledge, experiences, hard work and above all else self esteem. I love starting businesses shoestring. No capital.

The problem I had when I was employeed was that my employers did not allow me to be creative on the job. And when there is no creativity then there is no fun for me. But when I am my own boss then I can be creative and have fun in the same time.

13 years ago I finally tried the internet and that's when I was introduced to Internet marketing. I quickly realized that this is a business that allows creativity to be expressed and that I liked it. I joined various outfits but I did not make a living out of them because I did not devote the required amount of time as I was running 2 other businesses and because I had some upheavals in my personal life. Nevertheless I earned some knowledge and experience out of them. My intuition still tells me that IM is the business for me.

I read about WA when i Googled a certain outfit and I read a review from Kyle. At first I thought that Kyle, would promise me the world, as Justin from the "certain outfit" did, but as I kept on reading I saw nothing about zillions of dollars. I just saved the webpage to come back to it when i would have time. Today, I was reading about the weather forecast, when i saw an ad about a mom making some money online. There was a video that i did not pay much attention to it but then somehow I clicked something and I came to a page of Steve "I've Tried That". I liked what i read, I jotted down some ideas I have and that's how and why I created an account in WA.

I don't know what niche I will use and if it will be successful. I have a few niches in mind though, after 67 years on Earth, and after people who have heard descriptions of certain instances of my life have advised me to write a book about my life.

I hope I have fun with WA and If I do, then sky will not be the limit :)

Money Goals
I would love to earn 10,000 a month after taxes and I will be ecstatic to earn 40,000 and up after taxes. I know that there is a potential to earn a lot of money if I put myself into it and I do the proper moves. I plan to work 21 hours per week during the summer months and a lot more during the cold months September to May. So far in the last 3 days I have worked for over 40 hours.

I have put about 64 hours building the foundations of my start-up business, Steve, and I have read all your emails you sent and I followed all the links. But I suspect that WA has technical problems the last 2 days. I will send you as well as Kyle & Carson, a message about the tech problems.

Good on you, Eddie! We are of the same vintage and have some shared experiences - yours being far more interesting! (I drove taxis, buses & limos for a while, mainly as a contractor). Now, I'm trying my hand at IM and it's like learning a foreign language again! You'll find a great supportive community here - and don't set any limits! :) george

Thank you George! Before driving a taxi, I drove a corporate limo for 1 month and then I was fired not because I was a bad chauffer but because the CEO of the company I was driving around, was fired by the big Boss who came from Utah and discovered that the company was making poor sales and then I had to drive a cab and thus get an initial idea about corporations. Throughout my life a negative thing was followed by a positive one.

No worries Tommy. I actually wrote my bio when I was 1 hour old newbie in WA and I did not know my way around. On the other hand though, I prefer people to know a few things about me, because this might help our professional relationship.

Hi Eddie and welcome to WA. Fascinating bio, I would Love to visit Athens someday. The history would be overwhelming for me. Wish you the best of success here and keep in touch.

Thank you Meredith. Allow me to suggest that you go to Athens with a group and not alone because Greece is going thru a financial crisis and the cities and towns have become unsafe and the impoverished illegal immigrants mug tourists.
