About Maximus
Joined May 2014
Where to begin. I joined Wealthy Affiliate to learn some new skills on how to market and promote a business on the internet.

I currently have a website where I sell mobiles, tablets and accessories and I am looking to promote it and expand the list of products and the quality.
I also sell the same products on eBay and looking to expand here as well.
I am new to the online business world, but I am not new to business itself.

I have been in business for myself as an auto mechanic, auto body repairer, truck driver, computer repairer, painter, tiler and handyman.
You could say that I am a jack of many trades, but not a master of any one.

This has given me the experience to try out different things and to be able to travel, which is one of my greatest passions, as well as the freedom to do so.

So why an online business now? I want to have more time and freedom to enjoy things even more. Also, because as you get older, you realize that you cannot quite perform the same level of physical work that you once could, at a younger age.

By operating an online business, I can be anywhere in the world and check into my business with a laptop and an internet connection. Does it mean that I will wander the earth 24/7? No. It just means that I can do the things that I enjoy, without having to be subjected to a 9 - 5 and having to request holidays and answer to someone else, other than myself.
It also means that I can do my own financial investing and create a source of passive income.

I have already lived in Montreal, Canada; New York, Madrid, Spain; Valencia, Spain; Cork, Ireland; and now Brighton, England. I have also traveled to quite a few places as well.

My other passion that goes along with traveling, is cycling. There is no greater joy than to cycle out of the city and ride out to the smaller towns, and enjoying the scenery and the fresh scents of nature, or to take a longer journey.

This is a quote that I read recently.

"If you do not go after what you want, you´ll never have it. If you do not ask, the answer will always be no. If you do not step forward, You will always be in the same place."

This quote not only applies just to me, but to everyone else here at Wealthy Affiliate who is making changes to succeed in every aspect of their lives.

Hope you have enjoyed knowing a little about me, but by no means, this is all there is.

What's going on John? Hope you have had an awesome week here at WA and you are making some good progress. Drop me a note "reply" if you need a hand with anything. :)

How's it going John? Hope everything is ok.

I noticed you haven't set up your profile as yet. You should upload a picture and introduce yourself to the community. Members who do this get more followers and help within Wealthy Affiliate than members who don't. You know, it's always good to put a name to a face - it makes others feel more comfortable. Wouldn't you agree?

If you need help doing this, John, just let me know and I'll give you a hand.
