About Ivan88
Joined October 2017
Hi, my name is Ivan.

I am 30, and I am born and raised in a little piece of heaven on Earth, called Croatia.

Small town Vinkovci is my home.

However, I live in Ireland, for now.

I came to live here because Ireland seems to be a land of opportunities unlike my home country, Croatia.

Before I made my move and started this new life, I had one desire in my mind. That is, to become financially free, work something that I love to do, help people who are looking for the same, and enjoy life to the fullest.

So far, so good!


THE BEGINNING OF MY JOURNEY

Shortly after I started my quest for this perfect opportunity, I found myself sitting on a business seminar in one of Dublin's hotels. The theme of the workshop was, how to start your own business. Mr. Tomass Cullen (the last name on my language means sausage haha) was a man who was behind the whole shebang.

Third or maybe the fourth day in the seminar, Mr. Cullen introduced us to a lady who was a guest speaker in his workshop. Her name was Sandra Hennesy, and she is an expert in online marketing!

While she was holding her presentation about the world of SEO, online marketing, and everything that goes with it, my heart was pumping like crazy!

I knew that this is something I WANT!

The whole idea behind online marketing she was giving to us was resonating perfectly with my original desire which was forged way back in Croatia.

I left the seminar in a mild state of shock. However, the excitement that followed will stay with me for the rest of my life!

Days went by, and I was still looking for some answers that I had at the time.

Then one day, I saw John Crestani's advertisement on YouTube about starting your own online business. Mrs. Sandra's idea flashed through my mind, and I had to act immediately.

After participating in Crestani's free webinar, I paid $50 to get started with his course immediately.

His Internet JetSet program had thought me some basics of affiliate marketing such as how to set up your website, do keyword research, and a few more basic things. You see, Crestani has left a massive hole in his course with a purpose to push his up-sales which got me angry, so I canceled his session.

However, that $50 was not wasted, no sir!

In my disappointment, I was determined to not begin to work seriously on my site until I find someone who can be honest and provide me with full training.


ENTER WEALTHY AFFILIATE!!!

One day, I got an open invitation to learn affiliate marketing by joining Wealthy Affiliate. I still can't remember from who or where did I leave my email address, all I know that I was a skeptic to open it at first.

The invitation was sitting there, in my mailbox, for days and days looking at me with large eyes calling me to join in.

Since I was already burned by many scammers (a small price to pay on your way to success), I was staring back at it for some time to see what will happen.

I opened the email, clicked the link, followed the instructions, and now I am writing this profile bio with a smile on my face :) and full confidence that Wealthy Affiliate is my affiliate marketing holy grail.

Sorry, I have to reframe the last sentence.

Wealthy Affiliate is every affiliate marketers holy grail.


MY MISSION AND GOALS WITH WEALTHY AFFILIATE

The first goal that I had in my mind was to quit 9-5 and devote all of my time (most of it) to learning and application of all that will be served by Wealthy Affiliate course.

It took me a year to figure out how to make this move. Not an easy one in your thirties, trust me. The decision, however, was easy. Making a move and doing it took some time.

I did it!!!

I have walked away from Tesco DC, Donabate in Swords, Co Dublin, sat on my bicycle and pedaled back home with a significant smile on my face.

"The cave you fear to enter holds the treasures you seek." J. Campbel

For the first time in my life, I got the full meaning of Mr. Campbel's line.

Today, I am here to accelerate my learning curve, participate in Wealthy Affiliate community as much as possible, share my experience, motive you to succeed as well.

Money, well, money is just an end product of the equation, my friend.

You see, if you plant a seed of corn, it is unlikely that you'll see a carrot coming out.

Among other workshops and training, I have followed a course by Mr. Bob Proctor where he teaches how to calculate the figure you need to live a happy and fulfilled life.

Moreover, he explains how to use the Law of Attraction to attract that money to your life. Not just the money, but everything else you desire.

By the end of the course, I have calculated that to fulfill my dream, all I need is an annual income of 100,000 euros which come to 8,333,33 euros on a monthly basis.

Not a small number for a guy from Croatia, trust me.

You see my social paradigm and yours and probably not the same. In some countries of the world, this is considered to be an average income for a middle class.

However, not in my country. In Croatia that is doctor's pay!

Anyway, as I have said, the desire to earn more is inborn in me as it is in you.

Wealthy Affiliate can help us all to feed that desire if we follow some necessary steps and rules of the game.

Rule number one for me is to give more before I try to get!

I hope you will follow the same.


SOME PERSONAL STUFF ABOUT ME

I have one big love in my life, basketball.

Unfortunately, I can't play as I used to anymore. You see, I am a hyperenergetic person once I get in the flow. Playing basketball gave me so much energy that I can't even describe the feeling.

That was my burden. That energy caused so many injuries from ankles, to knees and wrists. I have discovered later in my life that my joints are not so healthy and I have mild arthritis.

Thanks to some people here at WA which host blogs about healthy eating, I have discovered that my condition can be reversed if I change my diet.

That is what I did! The results are significant for now.

This fact brings me to another thing. I like to live healthily. I eat, drink, move, laugh, have fun, learn everything that has to do with healthy living and human development.

On the other hand, the lifestyle that I was living for the past 8-10 years was not the one to recommend. You see, I was an addict to alcohol and sick people for a long time.

Coming here to Ireland, helped me to clean my life and my mind.

Something wonderful has happened while I was in the process.

Seeing how some people admire my life after I have succeeded in my mission has started something else in me.

You see, people have started to follow my example.

Soon enough I have learned that helping others to succeed by leading with my example has come very close to the feeling that I had while playing ball.

That is why I decided to devote the rest of my life to keep that feeling alive!

While I am talking about feelings, I am not married yet which means no special lady in my life or kids for the moment (as far as I know haha). However, I am on my way to fulfilling that dream as well. :)

As you can see, I like to write. The training here at Wealthy Affiliate has helped me to discover this writer in me. Another love which I will keep alive for the rest of my life.

Ok, I believe that is more or less it for now.

If you are interested in getting some motivation, learn about the Law of Attraction and how you too can use the same knowledge to fulfill your dreams, you can visit my website

yourpersonaldevelopment.org

That site will show you, among other things, what is possible if you stick with Wealthy Affiliate and devote your time to learn and apply the training you will be served once you join with a PREMIUM account.

There is nothing more to say except I wish you a fantastic journey and I hope to see you succeeding together with the rest of us who want more from life!

Feel free to contact me anytime by sending me a Private Message here at Wealthy Affiliate any time of the day.

I will be more than happy to help you in any way.

All the Best,
Ivan Brozincevic

Hi Ivan,

Thanks so much for the follow, I've just read your bio and we have so much in common! From injuries, to the self development passion, to the Croatian heritage on mum's side (although I wasn't born there and have not yet visited). I live in Australia, but my father's family is Irish haha

Anyway, awesome to 'meet' you. I'm feeling very excited at this beginning stage of my WA journey and look forward to a life of financial freedom from what we can all achieve here.

Cheers,
Josie x

Hi Josie, your welcome! :)

It's amazing to hear that you have Croatian-Irish roots! It's a powerful combination. Where's your mum from? :D

You have to visit Croatia at least one in your lifetime! It's not cool as Aussie, but we have some great sunshine over there as well :)

It's nice to 'meet' you as well. Keep that excitement growing by staying consistent in both publishings your work and following the training provided. If you need help or advice, you know my address! :D

Mum was born in Aus, her older brother, I believe was born on the ship as my Grandma was moving here.

I can't remember the village she lived in, but I do still have family over there that I've never met, so it's absolutely on my bucket list, and hopefully will achieve that goal in the next couple of years.

Thanks so much! If I can return the favour in comments etc as I am learning, just message :)

Hey Ivan,
What an amazing bio. I have written a spy novel, "Bad Costs", available only online from me! The setting begins in Louisville, KY; however, the spies soon settle near Zagreb, Croatia. They choose this area because of the non-extradition from Croatia to the US.
Then you turn up! From the same place and full of some of the same experiences I have faced trying to become successful in online marketing.
True, money isn't everything. If I never make a penny, I have a place where I can practice my writing--my first love.
Thanks for adding me to your WA network.

Blessings, my WA friend.

Great quote "The cave you fear to enter holds the treasures you seek." J. Campbel

I am curious, you joined in October 2017, but did not go premium until 6 months ago (according to the profile badge) which would be August 2018 some 10 months or so later - I am curious as to what took you so long to go premium?
Reply
Ivan88 Premium
Hi Derek, thanks for asking.

I believe that I left my email with WA in October 2017, the same time I started with Internet JetSet. After failure with Crestani's course, I decided to give WA a go.

I believe that I was a Premium after the first few lessons in the class.

I am not a past-oriented person so my apologies if I don't recall all the dates correctly.

Congratulations on going premium Ivan!

This is when you start your new life. Envision yourself a year from now. Your future self will be patting yourself on the back. Think about the regular schedule you will follow to make your dreams become a reality. Take the little bit of extra time to lay it out. You will save time down the road, so you can focus on what really matters.

Best of luck to you!

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hey Ivan, just wanted to pop back and see how you are doing? I noticed that you haven't quite set-up your account yet, just wanted to let you know there is a video on how to do this if there is any confusion. Setting up your account will lead to much better help here within the community as people feel like they can connect with you better (with an image and a description)

Just wanted to make sure that all was good and if you do need a hand with anything, just let me know! :)
