About Mark-au
Joined March 2016
G'day everyone, I’ve grown up in eastern Australia, wandering from time-to-time, travelling within Australia and further afield.

I headed off to North America when I finished my electronics apprenticeship many years ago, initially staying with friends in central and western Canada and then travelling to Alaska, then back across Canada and the United States. This and subsequent adventures have created life-long friendships.

Returning to Australia, I completed a business degree along with subsequent studies in computing and project management. Except for the first couple of years of full time study, I worked during this hectic period and also met my wonderful wife.

Our two daughters are now at university and I am working in the Information Communications Technology (ICT) industry. We’ve experienced some travelling as a family and in recent years my wife and I have visited interesting and remote places such as the Arctic.

My intention is to draw on my interests (which include photography and hiking) to build online businesses that will allow my wife and I to continue to help others and explore the world, as we move away from daily work commitments.

As I write this, the message on my t-shirt reads “Not All Who Wander are Lost”… lets do this!

Nice goals Mark,

These are going to take you to a whole new level of being focused, motivated, and dedicated to what you are learning here at WA.

As you work through the training lessons, make sure to ask questions when you have them, and take action on what you are learning. You have a full community of friendly people behind you!

I look forward to working with you :)

Hi Magie, thank you for your kind welcome. I'm looking forward to being a part of the WA community. I read that you are an avid book reader, as is my youngest daughter and I've even had a go at lawn bowls once or twice... well socially at least :-). Very best wishes too, for your continued success.

Hi Mark.
How are you? How is your Wealthy Affiliate experience coming along?

I wanted to pass by and share a little story with you.
You see, I joined WA in 2007, when they only had a premium access and no free starter membership. It was a hard decision to make but I took a chance on WA and I never looked back.

In October of 2015 I celebrated my 8 years anniversary with WA and sure enough I blogged about my experiences, my ups, downs and everything in between.

Please do check out that blog post and let me know what you think :) Thanks!

Alex

Hi Alex, just read your '8 years' blog post congratulations! I'm really enjoying the WA experience. There is lots of potential to learn and grow here. I think being part of this community will help to keep me motivated, focussed and accountable (to myself). In my part of the world it is approaching midnight, so I'll sign off and wish you a great day!

Hey Mark, 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! :)
