About Frd
Joined May 2015
Hello Friends!

Small update (03.2017): when I started here I didn't know a thing about working with computers, always gave that job to other people so even less knowledge about WordPress, Plugins, SEO or whatever one can learn here. Last year I became ill again and didn't visit Wealthy Affiliate during a period of eight months.

Since the first of February, I am officially independent and design Websites for my old contacts to get a basic income and returned to this beautiful platform to restart BootCamp since I now know Wealthy Affiliate is a great product to promote !!! One really learns the good things about affiliate marketing and how to built a logic ranking website :)

------------

I was never the person, who you could define as: just somebody. Most people work hard for others, just waiting for the few weeks summer vacation to be a bit different during that short period. I was always "different". Never worked on Mondays for example, never started before noon and this explains, why I always choose it to do projects, which was very unusual in Europe in the past century. I always want to know everything, so that's why my studies are all different. "Normal people" would choose a subject and specialise in just that field. So I have a great variety of possibilities.

People, who can't understand me call me nerd, the ones, who know me will say: he's just "different"

Is it different or just stubborn?

Whatever it is, it always brought me to the places, that I wanted to see. It gave me projects in the countries and companies, that I like. And I never choose projects longer than two years.

When I just started here at Wealthy Affiliate I couldn't say, that I had bad online experiences with other online opportunities and I guess, that that's my luck, when I read about other people's experiences :)

Starting here in 2015 I choose too many niches and bought too many Domains and to be honest: I thought I could fill every site. Now reduced the number of sites to five, which is probably still too much :)

I wish all people at Wealthy Affiliate success and most of all FUN creating your own future

Keep on smiling :)

Hi Farid,

Thank You so much for adding me to your “Following”!!!

That must have been a lot of fun = not working on any projects over 2 years long!!!

So, is "Variety The Spice of Life"???

Sounds good to me too!!!

I have seen a lot of internet programs over the last 4 years and this looks and feels right!!!

I would greatly appreciate it if you would please let me know if there are any important tips that you think a “Newbie” like I am to WA can benefit from!!!

Best Wishes for Your Continued Success!!!

HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!

Kevin

Hi Frd, I'll do my best to keep this short, lol! I love onebluemoons blog post last night, about reply, reply, why does no one reply. She cracks me up. Back to your bio.

Congratulations on your bouncing back to health after an 8 month set back. Not only that, but also on your determination to stay with the program. By the sounds of it, your just as stubborn as different, lol!

Building websites for your own clients, your officially independent since Feb of 2017. meaning it only took you two years to make that happen. Yes, I'd say your stubborn for sure.

Thanks for the follow and I'm doing the same Frd. It's my pleasure.

I think the best photo that describes you would have to be the middle one with the hippie van with the surfing dude standing next to it.

Being different has served you well and I look forward to communicating with you.

Your a real inspiration.

Kindest regards,

Becky

Thank you very much Becky for the great words.

Sometimes I think of giving up but the next second the answer is: why should I. At the moment I'm trying to ditch my nasty clients, the ones, that want too much and the ones, that don't pay in time and......I started with my first, all English blog. It only goes terrible slow :(

But: giving up is not in my dictionary :P

Farid

5-qpq Premium
Haha, absolutely! You never give up and it's not in your dictionary. I love it!

Farid, by now you have probably came to the conclusion that you just CANNOT please everybody, lol! Furthermore, your clients are the ones loosing, not you, lol!

I just read on someone's bio that the joy of success is the journey, not the destination.

I really enjoy the energy you put out. And if you ever need to vent give me a shout, lol!

I think we are going to have a lot of fun.

Hey Fairid, you'll never do without. Where one door closes, there's another one open. Congratulations on your first English blog too!

I don't like Monday's either.

The best time to work is at night. Wealthy Affiliate is so large, thousands of people doing the same thing from all over the world.

I'm looking really forward to networking with you.

You definitely are a go getter. By the sounds of it your having way to much fun. Love it!

When I get up the first thing is? Coffee and when coffee, WA is second. It makes me laugh, even in the period, where it only costed me money, to pay for Premium was for me, in the beginning, a cheap way to get to interesting articles and very useful training :)

Hello Farid, thank you for following me - I followed you back. Great to connect with someone in the top 50 at WA and has experienced success after starting with limited computer knowledge. That's inspiring to me as I've been on the other side of online marketing (helping others market their business), so I am excited to do some marketing of my own FOR MYSELF :)

Keep in touch!

Hi, frd's How are you doing this week. I have a busy week ahead of me with insurance brokers selling me Medicare, etc, and my other Universities that I already signed on with at the beginning of the year. Oh well. I will have to slow down to make everything be smooth sailing this summer. My website is up at least, and if it weren't for facebook shutting me down for doing some Psychic work to answer a Ghost online through a fan of his, and they a few minutes later shut me down for an innocent comment of truth that the Spirit told me to tell her.
Though I did find out that I was ranked 4 stars and 10 people are talking about my website, and I have three places on the first page, at the top first three places of that page. How sweet. Maybe I can get some videos on that are made by me and can get me some revenue later. I will be watching your progress. How long did it take to make your first income with Your first website?

My first website gave me some income within four weeks, but I have to say: it was a financial product and only two other websites with the same product in my language. Later I made a whole series of sites with the same product in several European countries. Some people didn't like this success so a part of this series was hacked and I kicked the whole group out :(

I understand what it is like to be different and I love to see others like that! I grew up in the bush in Alaska so it was totally different than most. We had people from all over the world come and stay with us however so I was exposed to many different cultures. We listened to radio stations from all over the world and got magazines and books shipped in often.

I grew up doing home school and gardening, gold mining, mushing a dog team, flying in small planes (regular transportation when you have no roads). I went on to 3 colleges and most recently completed the coursework for my Master's Degree.

I have one foot firmly planted in two totally different worlds. I miss my life in the mountains but work in an office building for state government at the Alaska Department of Natural Resources. The job has a flexible schedule and lots of vacation time which is worth more to me than high pay. My dream is to have enough income from real estate and niche websites that I can quit the job and live and travel wherever I want!

I have complex health issues as well so I have a hard time with the set schedule of a regular job.

Here's to the different ones!!

Hey Jessica,

I always got annoyed of people who said: when I retire, bla, bla, bla, I will do, bla, bla, bla....I always worked hard to get the funds to do what ever I wanted, So travelled through Africa with a small truck....haha, yes, alone or lost my lecense to jump (parachute) several times because of being me.....now I have to rebuilt my life and other people say: you're lucky, got a nice appartment......yuk, you know how much noises the people around me make without even knowing it themselves? Used to live in a caravan, several years so no, I'm not made to be normal, I'm on earth to explore and recently found out I already saw a lot, there are only three places on earth left I have to see anfor that I will modify a VW Pick-Up and put a sleeping cabin on it and will visit the three places, together with Monster, probably till the end of my life, only.....for that my niche sites must be operational haha.

Can you guess the three places Jessica?

Almost :)

Antarctica, Greenland and Iceland (lived there and we also had to fly instead of driving)

Which place did you fly to?
Reply
frd Premium
On Iceland about everywhere, I didn't need much fuel when warmer, since it was a glider with an engine, the ugly ones haha and because of glider one could land about everywhere....also flew that thing in Europe, preferred Germany :)

Nice. I was confused since I thought you were saying those were the three places you had not been to.

I never explored Iceland by car :P and that's what I'm planning

Oh, I see...you can't explore most of Alaska by car either though there are some spectacular drives along glaciers, bays, the tallest mountain in North America etc.

Norway and Sweden are first, have to get the camp-part for the car from Sweden than crossing to Iceland and from there "nobody knew where they went"

You have a great day.

Farid, thanks for the follow my friend! I enjoyed reading your bio. Keep up the good work. 5 sites is a lot! I would go crazy as I can hardly manage two, but like you I am a little bit sporadic and enjoy many different things at once.

I am a learn by doing personality so that doesn't help things!

Hello Frd

I have just very quickly read your profile. Your profile is stunning!
I will have to get back to you. Limited time. But if you get a chance to read the message I sent to StefanC, please do so. It is not to say , by the way, that he is not doing the things I said. I just like to talk, and I consider him as a friend.

Speak to you later, and continue to do the things that make you feel good about yourself.

I really enjoyed your update Wow! Am I understanding it correctly that you went from zero computer knowledge to designing sites for others in less than 2 years? I'm glad that you recovered from your illness, too.
Love your dog pictures as I'm a dog lover with three young huskies now. Dogs are my passion.
You are going to succeed and probably are already experiencing it.
Stay well

Hi Frd, Believe me, I know exactly what you're talking about in the beginning of what you are saying in the 1st paragraph. I know little knowledge about marketing and nor do I have experience. But with the newly updated course, I will try to become an excellent marketer and you will too if you stick with it.

Hi Farid,

I enjoyed reading your profile and all I can say is you sound like a true entrepreneur, who never does anything others would call normal. AND I laughed when I read the part about you buying up domain names, I've been doing that for years and like you probably have too many. Anyway, thanks for adding me to your network. Wishing you all the very best on your journey to success :-)

Hello Gaylene, some of the Domains, that I bought even gave me something extra: an invitation in Court, I violated protected names, haha. Glad it happened, people, who don't make mistakes can't learn :)

Can't say that's ever happened to me, I typically choose names that no one else has. Anyway, all the best :-)

You and I have very similar ideas about things Farid. Many have said I am not normal. Especially my family. I am interested in everything. I wish I had produced in myself the intelligence like Stephen Hawking and where I could create the theory of everything. Love your bio. I hope your business is doing well.

frd Premium
There are just two ways of living: the one you can or the one you want and making a combination of them will bring you, where you want to be. Most people just complain, that's the so-called normal part of the world and how they think about me is their problem.

Small example: a mechanic came in my apartment and the first thing he said was: you didn't put the furniture, where it has to be. Ten minutes later he gave me the nerd "title" and within a week some neighbours asked me to repair their computers because the mechanic said I am a computer nerd.....now where's the beginning again? Oh yes, my furniture....hahaha
