About FeruzKamis
Joined September 2017
This is where I introduce myself so that you can get to know me better.

My name is Feruz and I'm from Singapore. Instead of telling you who I am, let me tell you my story.

THE SEED WAS SOWED

It was way back in 2001. September 11, 2001 to be exact. An event that shook the world, literally. I was 35 years old and my 3rd son was just born 5 months earlier. I was an employee then. That event took the world by surprise and put all of us into a new set of reality.

With a new baby in tow, I have to ensure that my cashflow is positive. I started venturing out into other income possibilities. This was also the time I was introduced to the Rich Dad series of books. The seed was planted in my mind. I wanted to get out of the Rat Race and I saw Real Estate as the escape route.

I began my journey as a Real Estate Salesperson. Everyone needs a roof over their head. Be it in a bull economy or a bear economy. It does not matter, especially so in Singapore. Within 3 months I made my first $10K.

Then in 2003, SARS hit Singapore hard. I lost a close friend to the virus. The economy that was just recovering from 9/11 took a nose dive. Prices of houses hit rock bottom. A lot of RES suddenly found themselves clientless. Nobody dared to go out into the streets. It was surreal, the big city just turned into a ghost town. I had to look for alternative. I turned to the internet.

TAILS BETWEEN MY LEGS

I was like a child with a new toy. I realized that I could make money on the internet but I also suddenly realized that losing money was also a reality which I learned the hard way. I was looking for the magic pill and got suckered. The money that I've made as a RES, lost in a press of a button. A few buttons, actually.

What I failed to realized back then was the work that had to be put in to make this a profitable venture. The claims were misleading. A plug and play and collect money done for you deal. For this "done for you" to work, it has to be unique and different from the others who also bought the package. I was not ready to make it unique. And with that I ran as fast as I could from the internet.

FAST FORWARD TO 2015

Yes, I've made a comeback to the internet. In the last 5 years, I have seen a great advancement in the mobile phone industry and at the same time, e-commerce has taken off like a rocket. Do you see the link? ... mobile phone ... e-commerce. Yes, you don't need to be sitting in front of a computer to buy online. You can do it from your mobile phone. Can you imagine the number of clients that is waiting to do business with you, online.

ONWARD AND UPWARD

With that in mind, I have made a conscious decision to share my knowledge and experience of online business with the world and especially YOU, my reader.

Through my adventures and self discovery on the internet, I have come across many sites that promises to guide me through my journey and ONE, stands out like a sore thumb.

They do not promise you that you will be a millionaire in the next few month or earn 10K in the next 90 days but they do tell you that you have to work very hard to make your online business work. No magic button, no magic pill.

It is a community of leaders who had taken upon themselves to help you succeed in the world of online business. There are an abundance of knowledge, training and resources that you can get for free - or at least a huge discount.

The collective knowledge in this community is so vast it could easily fill up the Library of Alexandria. They call themselves Wealthy Affiliate. Feel free to explore the site. Signing up is free. In fact, you can stay as Starter (free) members for as long as you like. I stayed for a whole year as a free member before I upgraded to Premium. There is no obligation to upgrade, there is no pushy sales tactic either.

But, if you do decide to upgrade to Premium, you will find there is more to learn and if you put in the work and follow the training, you are set up for success. This is no 'Get Rich Quick' scheme. Let me be blunt and upfront. You need to do the work. This is no 'Plug and Play Cash Machine'. You have to put on some elbow grease to see success and get financial freedom.

With a community of like-minded people who are so supportive, it's hard not to succeed but you have to work. No slackers here. My re-education begins with Wealthy Affiliate and I would like to invite you on this journey towards financial freedom.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is my story.

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

God bless and all the best,

Hello Feruz:

Thank you for the follow and like you were I am currently a real estate agent in the Niagara Region of Ontario, Canada. We have seen the ups and downs of the market numerous times over the years and have just gone from an extremely hot market to one that is now moving very slowly.
I have also been taken in by a few of the get rich quick schemes and learned the hard way that there is no shortcut to hard work.
I'm getting close to retirement but still want to stay active in business in one form or another so here I am at WA.
I have followed you as well and will keep an eye on how you are doing. I wish you all the best in this venture and hope that all of your hard work here will make up for all of your lost time over the last few years.

Tony

Hi Feruz!

Rather than hurriedly saying "thanks for the follow" and that I'll follow you back, then rushing off to the next follow to thank, I actually read the profiles. I like to get to know the people in my network. I'm glad that I read yours!

The road your journey has taken is inspiring for those of us on similar paths. I hope that your experience here at WA is a successful one.

I'm honored to have the opportunity to follow you as you embark on this part of your quest for financial independence.

I'm honored that you chose to follow me as well.

Be well, be wealthy!
Joe Martin

PS: Oh, and thanks for the follow! :-)

Thanks Feruz for following me. I was really inspired by your story. Despite all the struggles you have gone through you have not given up. You keep pressing on!

You also point out the key difference between Wealthy Affiliate and many other "opportunities". They do not promote a get rich quick mentality. But, if you are willing to work for it, they are willing to give you the support and resources to make it happen.

I look forward to seeing your success in the months to come.

Blessings to you and thank you for sharing your story.

Hi Feruz
Thanks for reaching out to me I’m looking forward to working with you. I agree WA seems to stick out like a sore thumb in the sea of offers to make a success online, they are genuinely interested in seeing us succeed and I’m looking forward to the journey, hard and intimidating it can be at times. I’ve given up a number of times for s few days at a time, then I force myself to get back to the training once again. Thanks again for your offer of support

Hello Feruz, I am now following you, thanks!
Your story makes us remind about the changing nature of things, one day you are at the top, the next one at the bottom. It's always important to keep this in mind, as it makes us understand defeat is a natural part of the process and should never scare us, after that there can only be a win.
Good luck with your online business,

Stacy

Hello! Feruz,

Thank you for the follow! I am following you too.

Yes, it happened to me too. I stumbled at WA while i was doing something else on the internet.

I never thought I would be in this for a long time. When I started doing the lessons it was totally different. I am still here learning how to be an Affiliate Marketer. Great lessons and tools are offered here at WA for you to succeed.

I wish you all the best as you continue to do your lessons and build your business.

Hello Feruz And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you may well have come to the conclusion that internet marketing is a steep learning curve.

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 460+ blogs I have published within WA.

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.
Robert

You are a true educator.

Hi again Feruz! Just checking in to see how you are getting along with the training. Don't worry about doing too much or too little - everyone works at their own pace.

Oh, and don't forget that there's another live webinar coming up this week for premium members! Jay's an awesome host, so it's worth attending at least once, just to see what they're all about.

Nate

PS. Jay loves "case studies", but sometimes other WA members publish their own! Here's a cool one. It's a quick read, so you can't miss it:

So did you get your website built yet? In case you haven't you can do it here https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites

If you have, let's take a look! Maybe I can give you some pointers.

MORE success stories you say? Oh, OK. No problem. This is a fun one. Simple, but to the point! Here's another great one that doesn't mention how much he's making, but making sales every day is a huge milestone! What do you think? I'd love to see what YOUR success post will look like in the future!

Did you get a chance to ask any questions yet Feruz?

Go ahead, test out WA and see what the members have to say! You can ask anything you want in the Getting Started Classroom here https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started (Newbie questions ALLOWED!) or you can drop by my profile to get 1-on-1 help from me https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/nathaniell

PS. I wanted to share a few more success stores I've collected from the "top 10" posts within the last year or so. Just more proof of what can happen with WA training.

Awesome results are not limited to just a "handful" of folks. Results are possible for anyone that puts in the work.

What's up Feruz, just wanted to see how you were doing and if you need any help. Let me know!

BTW in case you missed the message, you also get free keyword searches in Jaaxy ( http://www.jaaxy.com ) that can help you with finding topics to write about on your website.

If you need some help understanding Jaaxy just respond to this message and I can send a training video to you.

PS. I found a few more success stories I wanted you to see!

Hey there, I just wanted to check in and see if you had any questions about what you've seen at WA so far. A lot of people get information overload in the first couple days.

The one piece of advice that helped me when I got started was that there is a huge difference in success rates between those that interact with the community and those that don't. Part of learning all this new stuff is going to require that you ask questions when you don't understand.

So, my suggestion is this.

1) Put up a profile pic

2) Write a short introduction about yourself

3) Drop in on my profile to say hello

Doing these things will help you meet people in the community and see what WA is all about. You can start learning how to build a profitable business on the internet by clicking the green "Get Started Here" button on your left. I hope you enjoy your time in Wealthy Affiliate!
