2018 Update
So it's been over 1 year now since I pretty much quit my day job and now live the laptop lifestyle. The day I announced my retirement here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/josh-from-oz/blog/the-day-i-announced-my-retirement was the best day ever. Every day since then has been just as good :). However I have kept my painting business open for my Brother and friend to keep working until they become full time internet marketers too. So when it gets busy, I do swing a brush from time to time.

Still writing posts 3-6 times a week to grow my online business. Growing income like this could never be done in a real job. It's like getting a raise every single year without doing any more work. Pretty awesome that it all comes back to this place, Wealthy Affiliate.

Original Profile

Hi everybody!. My name is Josh and I'm from Australia. After tasting some success with I.M over at Squidoo I decided it's time to learn how to extend my reach, what a better place then here at W.A.

I work full time and more as a house Painter so my time is limited online, but I have studied the ropes of I.M for the last year or so and will NOT give up on achieving my goal, which of course is financial freedom and more time with my Partner and 2 kids :)

I look forward to reading all these very helpful posts and training to better my skills and finally build my own money making site :)

Update 24th February 2016: Thought I should update my profile as it's a few years out of date now haha. So now I have 3 kids, 2 boys and 1 girl and I no longer work as an employee for a Painting Company.

When I had my first website on WA I was making about 1k a month consistently. Then a real world opportunity came along for me to start my own painting business. As my online money wasn't sufficient for me to quit my day job just yet I went ahead and started a painting company (funded by internet money).

This March celebrates 2 years as owning my own successful company. This Month also celebrates my 4th year being a member at Wealthy Affiliate.

So right after I started my painting company I got so busy at work (doing 60-80 hours a week) and I simply could not do much progress on my sites. After 8-10 months of working solid I finally had time to get back to my websites. Which by the way didn't drop in earnings, they went UP in earnings. The power of ranking in Google with quality content :).

I made a new website once I re-learned some of the things I had forgotten (Which is why WA is so good- Has all the helpful resources anyone could ever want). I also was very keen to get into my new website (Kind of like when I first began at WA with excitement) but this time I had even more knowledge.

Over a year later and now my online income surpasses my wage (Maybe I pay myself too little haha). One day once my house is built and most of the mortgage is paid off, I will become a full time marketer. Until then having an extra full time income really helps with finances.

This is the power of what is taught here at Wealthy Affiliate. All that's left to do is take action and do it consistently. If a simple house painter can succeed online I believe you can too!.

Congrats to your success! I have the same hope as yours and I wanted to become more successful online to give more time to my son. I gave myself 5 years in order to achieve this targeting to earn $ 2,000 upto $ 20,000 a month. I just need to master some techniques and able to find more time making my websites successful.

Hi Josh,

I just joined the Wealthy Affiliate through your link. I hope it's a right decision to pursue my dream for a financial freedom.

Since English is not my mother language, writing in English is quite difficult task for me, so the websites that I will create in the future mostly will be in Indonesian language, and will be serving Indonesian market.

In the above condition/limitation, do you think that WA will still be a good tool to help me to succeed? Please advise.

Kind regards,
Antonius

Hi Antonius, I just replied to your message on your profile page. Internet marketing is internet marketing. Can be done in any language! Perhaps you could write a blog (The pen image to the top write) and ask if there are any other people from your country for better support. Hope this helps
