About Jvhouten
Joined August 2016
Hi all!

My wife (Maud) and I are an adventurous, sporty couple both 30 years old. I have an MSc. in Industrial Ecology and Maud an MSc. in Business Administration. We always felt that the standard 9-5 job is not how we want to spend most of our lives.We love to learn about new cultures and also to challenge ourselves mentally and physically. We have lived in The Netherlands, Singapore, United Arab Emirates and Australia. Currently, we used up our savings, Maud is working a full-time job and Jeroen is looking for a job and focusing on our blog 'Modern Day Dreamers' and our Financial Education. Through our continued education and meeting like minded people we try to quit the rat race, live life the way we want to and break with the routine of having to work till we get old.

Our quest started in 2015 during a Christmas celebration with friends where we received a book from Robert Kiyosaki. We read this book which motivated us to move out of the rat race and to try and view life as we know it differently. As a part of this quest, I am looking into earning money through affiliate marketing.

So far I feel really welcomed here at WA and hope to learn a lot from the online study materials and also from those who are more experienced than I am. But I guess that's most of you guys :)!

Cheers!
Jay

Hi Jeroen, thank you for the follow. It's interesting to know that you and Maud have stayed in Singapore before. Hope you enjoyed your stay there. Yes, totally with you on this one, to be able to quit the rat race and go on to be successful in Internet marketing. Everybody I knew told me I needed to put in a lot of hard work and time at the beginning in order to see results so I guess there's no short cut method to this business. All the best and keep going with WA's training!

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Jeroen, ♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me. Ik lees dat je bekend bent in Nederland:)

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right, the first website link (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Enjoy your day.

Hey Jeroen, 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! :)
