About Mrwood
Joined May 2015
Hi there, my name is Miguel, my friends call me Mike. I began my journey with the internet in the remote year of 1996, when I created a portal that housed several Audiovisual companies. At the time Internet was taking its first steps, it was very slow and a nightmare to access some sites. 33Kbps modems was the latest communication technology available. To update a website’s single page the waiting time was longer than a couple of minutes, not to mention the frequent phone connection drops and the constant need of content re-upload.

The first Web page editing program I used for site development was from Adobe, PageMill 1.0 was the first WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) HTML editor. Of course, I had to learn HTML, and also a whole new world of computing programs and terms that I was not used to. But I did it and my business start working. During three years I learned a lot, earned some money, and with the profit I could buy all the computer equipment that allowed me to manage the client’s sites and design all the content for them.

My professional situation changed and had to full-time manage my audiovisual company that at the time was market leader. The business was a small video market niche with a few thousand potential customers. I had to drop the portal business, because I had not enough time to keep the sites up to date. The business of developing Internet sites were on the rise at the time, and development prices dropped suddenly, so the competition went from almost no offer, to a lot of companies in a short time.

Some time ago I decided to re-embrace this increasingly interesting and innovative online world. With the prior knowledge and the one acquired through various means, professional environment, academic world, and with the valuable help of many members of Wealthy Affiliate, I could publish my first site.

Today, after a few years since the first incursions in this competitive online world, I do not regret anything I've done. The successes and failures I've been through was part of the process. My goal is always learn to achieve more knowledge, be a better person, and share everything I can with everyone.

I have now two published niche sites that I developed with the training provided in WA. I know this is the best way to achieve the financial freedom that everyone want. Working for myself, at my own pace, be happy with the results, and at the end be succeeded, this is the goal I have in mind and the one I am pursuing.

All this would not have been possible without Wealthy Affiliate. WA provided me with all the training and tools that enabled the development of new ideas and with it I can develop my business and also help others to be self-sufficient like me. I gained years of life not having to justify my work to my boss, cause now I am the boss.

I work a lot, but now I have a life and I control it. Now I can have some vacation overseas and went to that dream hotel without having to think in my savings account. I still have enough free time for me and for my family, children and friends. I now have better life quality, not possible a few years ago.

This is a small summary of me and my life and I sincerely appreciate the time you spent reading this. I know you not spend it in vain, because from now on your life will be also very different within our community. Feel free to contact me whenever you need via my profile.

Best regards,

Mike

Hi Mona!
Thanks a lot for your reply. I am in an early stage here at WA, but all I learned during this month and all the suppor I got from the community makes me believe that, this is it.
As you, I have a child, a little bit older than yours, but now that I have more spare time, cause he's not needing me so often, I can look to some other interesting things like WA, and with some work, even profit in some niche that I like to develop.
So my story is almost the same as yours.
I must go on with my WA work, cause I want to learn a little bit more today. :-)
Regards,

Mike

I am sure you are doing great Mike. And yes, this is the place to be. Plenty of us in this community have searched and searched for "the best deal" and we all come back to WA, after searching around. There is no place to get the support and the training as here. What you do with the resources is up to you :)
I wish you all the best on your journey, and if there is anything I can help you with, please don't hesitate to ask :)

Mike, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Mike.

Hi Vitaliy:

I need a little help from you.
I am builting my private messages section and I found I can put a link to send the new affiliate member directly to where I want.
I want to have "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)" with the URL below, can you tell me how to do it? Best Regards,

Am I right?

Nice to meet you Mike. I read your profile and wanted to say it's great to have you here. I know you're going to love WA and if you have any questions moving forward, please let me know :)

Hey Mike, I wanted to stop by and personally welcome you to WA. Rest assured everything I mentioned about them is true :)

Whether you're here to build a business, a website or just want to learn and make money online, this is the only place that will show you the best ways to do it.

Here are my 2 quick recommendations on getting started out the best possible way:

1. Please complete your account sign setup. This is just a simple 1 minute process that will better help myself and WA know more about you and your goals. I'd like to get to know you better and help you get going.

2. After you've done this, check this page out: (I think Kyle or Carson already recommended this). This is where everyone who joins WA should begin as it will explain everything.

The course is the most important part of WA. It will guide you to success!

And that's it!

Believe me when I say this stuff works. Just follow the instructions and if you have any questions Mike, feel free to leave them by just posting a reply here. I usually respond within 24 hours and will be more than happy to help you out!

One last thing I want to mention:

Currently you're a Starter member of WA. This is completely free and you can do a lot of things such as build 2 free websites, get access to training and the online chat, among other cool perks!

If you see that WA and it's training is something you'd like to continue, I would highly recommend upgrading to the Premium membership. It's usually $47 per month, but if you sign up within the first 7 days of joining WA...

1. You can get a 59% discount ($19 for the first month).

2. I'll send you my personal guide to Reaching Your Financial Independence in 2015. This guide is based on my EXACT profit generating techniques I've used with WA. If you are serious about online business, you need to have this. :)

3. You get access to my personal support, 24-7. If you need help, you can be sure that you can fire any questions my way. I have been in the Internet marketing world since 2006 and have likely seen it all! In short, if you have ANY questions, you can come to me anytime and I will help you out (if I can't, I promise to find you the answer). You can count on that.

Certainly this is up to you Mike. For now just check out the recommended things and see how it works out :)

Talk to you soon!

Vitaliy
