Just a few lines to introduce myself to all in the WA community.
I live in the County of East Yorkshire in the United Kingdom, I am married and have a wonderful wife and Daughter. We also have 3 Dogs and 2 Cats.
I have been in Retail most of my working life in various capacities and for many companies and there's not much about Retail that I don't know.
I did manage to get away from retail for three years of my working life when I worked for an IT company maintaining and managing the online presence of National and Local Newspapers as diverse as the NY Times and Gwinett Daily.
I enjoyed my time in IT until the company withdrew their presence in the UK and decided to concentrate their offices and workforce in the US.
I Returned to working in Retail but my brief sojourn in Information Technology had given me the "bug" and since then I have been looking to try and do something to earn an income online.
Like many people I have investigated and looked at opportunities online but the Scam sites are many and pitfalls are around every corner.
I came across Wealthy Affiliates through someone's website but I can't remember who's and although the initial reading was impressive I remember thinking oh its just another scam to get money out of you and get nothing back in return.
I was curious though so decided to investigate further. I was pleased to see that whatever I read seemed to have a positive slant and couldn't really find anything negative.
A lot of people were saying that If you were prepared to work hard and prepared to learn, not looking for an easy buck etc there was money to be made from working the affiliation angle.
All of this appealed to me so I decided to give it a try.
From day one I have been amazed by the professional nature of the whole setup. From being acknowledged by the CEO's to the warm welcome from established and new members of the community, to the easy and informative nature of the training, the fact that everything is free with the option to become a premium member at a discounted price, I have been extremely impressed.
I have spent nearly every spare minute of the last three days in between work, on the WA website, investigating, reading peoples profiles, doing training, thinking about niches, considering options and have enjoyed every minute.
I can safely say I feel strongly committed and highly motivated. And I am looking forward eagerly to this new challenge!
