Hello Dear Reader,

First, I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my bio.

Update October 2018

I think it's the time to have a proper bio and get to know me better :)

I'm a software engineer with many years experience under my belt as a software developer, Team Lead, Project Manager, Scrum Master and for the last 12 years working as an IT consultant.
I have always been passionate about computers, and in the last years, I start working with web design as well (CSS, HTML and all the great stuff). I find it very creative and recreative activity.

I developed websites and online web-shops for various clients, and I stumbled in the SEO, traffic, IM, promoting areas.
I start searching info and the first contact with Internet Marketing I have had it with Inbound Marketing.

The idea of having my website and share my experience was running around for some years, but I didn't know where to start. As an IT person, I have lots of ideas about creating an application, but I do not have a clue about selling and marketing. I needed something to share and generate revenue.

The next step was Email Marketing, but the solution which I choose was a paid one, too many products to buy, monthly subscriptions to pay and no result in the end.

I continued my searches, and I find Wealthy Affiliate mentioned on many websites. Skeptical, I create an account last year in December, I followed the first lessons, but I was still not convinced and give up.

This year in April, I abandoned the platform which I was using for Email Marketing, and I turn my eyes, again, to Wealthy Affiliate. I congratulate myself on this decision.

Since April, till date, I learned a lot and still learning every day. On the 6 months mark, I made my first sale and some Google AdSense earnings, which gave me more motivation and undiscovered energy to continue my project.
My goals are very well defined, and when I'm down, I read them and keep going.

Currently, I manage 3 websites, 1 primarily, second working to grow it and the third one is my hobby, still in the baby phase.

There were many posts related to the comments which are not returned, and I want to take this opportunity to let you know that I always return the favour.
I think it's a moral duty to do so; as others are having time to leave a comment, it's not hard to do the same.
I live in Stockholm, Sweden and depends on your geographical location, you may receive my comment a bit late, but be reminded that you will get it :)

If you need help, don't be a stranger, send an email, and I'll do my best to help you.

Till next time, wishing you success in your journey.

Best,
Maria

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)
