About Jonah2020
Joined December 2019
I'm Stephen a well-travelled man that has had the chance to travel and teach English around the world. I suppose my niche in reality is travel and then second teaching English as a Foreign Language. I have lived in Thailand for five years, Australia a year and even Bangladesh for a year. I've travelled South East Asia clockwise and anti clockwise over the years and taught Business English in China three times. I've been to over 80 cities and 32 countries worldwide but I had to work hard to afford that as a classroom teacher with lot's of holidays and opportunities to travel but always on a budget.

I've been trying my hands at recruitment of English teachers worldwide but not really learned the marketing aspect of it and I've even wrote an online course for teachers that want to teach English online so that they can travel and teach if they so wish. Teachers can learn how to create a business with my already designed training which is free apart from the more in-depth version that I wish to sell later down the line for teachers that want to as mentioned own a business of their own.

I know this sounds strange and maybe your thinking how can someone like me that wants to start fresh build a course for others to build an online business for teaching English online?

My answer to that is I'm great at building websites and putting the basic needs for a business but I just can't get the marketing side and need to start enjoying it more to get the motivation. I have learned about funnel marketing and other methods but ran out of money to market the project and could not find the right knowledge for Facebook ads or mentor to show me at that time.

I'm interested to learn how to become the best English teacher recruitment business online and I want to offer teachers that are recruited through my business great positions worldwide. I want to learn how to affiliate great courses such as TEFL courses and training. I want to have a subscription for teachers so that schools can search for the best teachers via my website for a fee.

I've had lot's of failed attempts such as a Thailand hotel booking system, a silver jewellery online store, a travel forum and a also a health plan business but none of those worked for one reason, because I tried to go it all alone with no real training.

I'm looking to make friends here and learn step by step to a new beginning and really power ahead to get the ball rolling to earning a decent amount of money and branch out from business to cover as much as I can to become a well-known and well balanced entrepreneur that can one day teach others how I did it.

I've worked on a project with Professional Vagabond's Ryan Sletcher, my previous mentor and really had a great idea of selling recruitment platforms as a website with 40+ hiring functions built by my then business partner, served with a domain name of choice only to be told at the last minute that I did not pass the DPA regulations.

This is something I wished I had of looked into before choosing a business partner that left me with nothing but my own 40+ function website for English teacher recruitment and nothing else other than a travel blog of my life as a traveller and teacher and also an online shop that sells nothing now the business has halted.

I'm never going to give in because this message inside of me called faith is what keeps me going each day. After a car crash last year and a really bad year in general I see the light now and the message is clear for me to make friends with people that interest me, hopefully here as we speak and learn from this opportunity to make a success of this new year 2020.

How much money per month would you be happy earning?

How much money per month would allow you to live the ideal lifestyle?

How many hours per week are you willing to invest to achieve these goals?

Success is very cumulative in nature. Every action you take will add up to a much greater success. I can tell you that when you earn your first money, it will all become very REAL and it will lead to much more success.

Personally it took me a couple of months to get there (to earn my first dime), but by month 6 I was earning a consistent income. That is likely what your journey will look like...stay persistent and ask for help when you need it. I am in your "corner" every step of the way Stephen! :)

Creating goals is an important first step. After that, I suggest taking advantage of the well-designed and systematic training provided here at WA. When you have questions, don't be afraid to ask the talented and helpful mentors here for us.

Also, it is excellent that you are willing to make the time commitment to succeed. Good luck with progressing toward your goals.

Great goals Stephen! I can tell you from personal experience this is absolutely possible with online business and it's really the tip of the iceberg when it comes to potential in this business.

If you follow WA's training and take action, know that you can and will reach these goals and go MUCH further than you ever though!

I liked your goals and your story. Too bad we didn't meet a few years ago when I was traveling. I would love to teach, but these days my interest in travel is more for the benefit of my new bride and myself to explore together as we enjoy our retirement. Good luck to you my friend

You are truly a world traveler visiting 32 countries! It was only last year that I finally got a passport and left the USA for the first time. lol

Sounds like you have a lot of entrepreneurial experience too. I get it. The trying different things and trying to get that one that everything "clicks" with.

Wish you the best of success!

Cheers mate I've lost more than I've earned mate and that's the worst thing I had a hotel booking system back in 2004 for Thailand hotels.

Hi Jonah, great to meet you here. I also returned and brushing off what I've done so far to see what will work now and what IS working now! You've got some great goals and with your background and knowledge, it just takes a decision on what to focus on daily to get there!

Hi There,

I've been at this for years but got ill and also tried to do it all without support so I've had a quite a few websites that I let go to waste which is a shame. I just need to learn SEO and then get my marketing website done. I'l also working on language development website.

Hy Jonah would like to contact you I mean a serious friendship if you don't mind, I am also a teacher with only three years of experience and would like to travel and teach online as well as make some courses online but the problem is I have been scammed a lot of times before please help because having own school is one of my goals.

Hi Collenz

Of course we can become friends and I've written an article this evening about branding a business. I set up an online business which is ready to go now but I'm working on other projects.

You can read this article and break it down and write notes, there are many other articles on my website you can read but please don't worry about setting up. I'm lucky my recruitment website was written and coded by my brother and has all the hiring tools needed to recruit and can be used to recruit online students.

I've left that for now but please feel free to read and comment on my blog here and any others you like from my website. Meanwhile we can buddy up an share ideas and you can ask me anything.

Let me give you an example about how easy it can be for you. You could setup a landing page to collect emails for students who want to learn English and also work on a website here at WA to promote your business and also make money promoting other products.

Worldly indeed. I don't know if I will be any help to you but you may be a help to me.

I've been a landlord (with tenants that are income challenged ) for 40years and I am actively selling my properties I need to relax .My first question is what does DPA mean ? licensing ?

'When I first started with WA I just wanted a blog or platform to discuss human problems. The next step is how can I make some money from this site?

I can advertise existing opportunities, that I have already vetted and perhaps create some myself.

in any event, I wish you a great and satisfying's 2020 !!!

Hi Leornard

Welcome back to WA!

Due to the content of your question I couldn't answer at work as I work with DPA but for you its nothing to worry about.

Data Protection Act (DPA) is to protect the public that use your website and the information you use of theirs. Nothing should be passed over to a third party so if this question is website based keep all your information on one server of your website to protect you and your customers. It's to prevent fraud and misuse of information.

Your Niche

I've been thinking that helping people in this world is coming more and more difficult making your niche more and more a good niche because at some point if your information is great people will be coming to you for advice and you could be saying things like I told you so because these days the world is becoming more and more difficult to live and no matter how you intend to help people there are many niches out there for you so find one and follow till you now everything about it, if you don't already.

It's all about content and for me i'm learning it backwards. In other words by writing for my WA website I have all the articles from other websites in my mind or on file but I still have to make my SEO perfect. With your content make it really interesting, not to serious but enlightening and review your keywords that will drive your content as the training says keep writing and don't stop.

Hope that helps
