Hi I am Jacques. A total newbie at this. Very quiet guy. Looking to make a second income. That was my first attempt at profile description. After reading your descriptions I thought it is only fair to tell you a bit more about myself.

I grew up in a very small town in South Africa. Only thing that kept the town going was the gold mines. So not knowing any better and what is out there it was inevitable that I was going to end up in the gold mines too. So decided to do an apprenticeship. Studied to become an electrician. Thought to make the best of a bad situation. Well left the mines but could not leave being an electrician. So i have been an electrician for almost 20 years.It is not that i am not good at it, it is just that it is something i would never have chosen if i knew what other opportunities was out there.

Got married when I was 32. Love my wife and we have been married for 10 years. After our first year of married life my wife was diagnose with lupus. It was very difficult in the beginning with medical bills and she could not work. She was also not able to have kids because of the medication she was on. Lucky for us we could rent an old farm house. Property is nice and big so we have other kids 2 dogs and 5 cats. Each one of them there own personality.

But that is what made me decide to look for ways to make a second income. After losing a lot of money for going after scams and people that promise a lot in the beginning, but as soon as you have paid them they disappear.

Wish I found WA earlier. But at least i am glad i found you now. I think this is the most i have written in my whole life. See WA has already change me and only been with them for a week.

What i want now is time. Time to do the things me and my wife would like to do. I would like to learn to play the guitar and travel.

Hey Jacques! Just wanted to follow up and see how you're doing so far. Hope you've been enjoying the training offered here and the community as well.

I wanted to share with you a training I wrote here at Wealthy Affiliate. It's called "9 Tips for Internet Marketing Beginners" and it walks you through some of the things I've learned since joining Wealthy Affiliate over 5 years ago. Check it out below and leave a comment to let me know what you think!

Hey Jacques and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 5 years ago. I was looking to learn how to supplement my income through Internet Marketing and what I've found was so much more.

By 2010, I was working full-time from home. These days, ALL of my income comes from my ventures online. In fact, my wife just recently quit her job to start her own business as well. Internet Marketing and Wealthy Affiliate have provided us with amazing opportunities (we've bought a house, get to travel the world, and best of all, no longer spend time "going to work") and I'm incredibly thankful to the training, tools, and support here that made it all possible. :)

I'd love for you to see the same level of success. So, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

To get started, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself. If there's anything I can do for you Jacques, just let me know!



PS. Hit the reply button and say hi so I know you made it here OK!
