About Nicky33
Joined February 2017
Hello! I'm Nicky from Greece, and for the past 7 years I've been teaching Science and Physics in different countries as an expat and traveling around the country I'm based at. I hold a Masters in Astrophysics and I was going to follow through with a PhD, but the world kept calling me and I couldn't resist! 23 countries and counting, currently living in Thailand.

Travel, reading, history, astronomy, learning new skills, writing and being in nature are my passions. Freedom, authenticity and financial independence on your own terms are among my highest values. For that reason, I decided it's time to take a leap and start on the journey of location independence, so I created a website to share the journey with you!

Before that, I had already started a travel blog (link on the sidebar), and I've been learning how to monetize it, but I realized I want to treat it mostly as a personal blog and not as an online business - I can build other websites in WA with that purpose, on one of my many other interests, while still enjoying writing about what excites me! So, here I am :)

WA is the place to be if you're also feeling limited in your job and you want to create financial freedom on your own terms, or if you love your job but you want more flexibility and a side income!

The keys to making this work for you? Understand that the most valued things in life don't come easy and that there's no such thing as "getting-rich-quick" - stay away from scams! Have a niche you're really interested about - you'll need that passion to fuel you to keep writing content and developing your website. Follow the training step by step! And realize that everyone has their own pace and what matters most is consistency and hard work - not how fast you'll start making money.

Glad to connect with everyone on this amazing platform!
Happy Wealthy Affiliating!

Great goals you have there! They are reasonable and definitely achievable. I know you can achieve your goals because I have seen many WA members achieved them.

Now your first step of goal setting is done, your next step is to take action. Remember, everything you do online is cumulative in nature, which means every step you take will bring you closer to your goals.

I would suggest that you follow the WA training courses closely and take action to complete each given task. You will be amazed by how far WA can bring you.

Feel free to contact me if you need any help!

Cheers!

Hi guys, this is a late reply but I was traveling in Nepal for the past month and disconnected from everything - digital detox! Such a wonderful country, have you been?

Nomadic spirit, yes, that's why I chose the name "Eternal Wanderlust" for my main website :)

Now it's time to get back on track with WA. So good to connect with like-minded people!
Thanks for your wishes, all the best to you too!

Nicky nice to meet you. Sorry for the delay in responding to your follow but I keep getting behind.

If you decide to head south as far as Tasmania, let me know. We could visit.

And have coffee and/or food. Even down here in the wilds we have one of the best sushi places in the world.

Hi Nicky.

First of all, thanks for the follow. Following you back.
Great bio! It is all so as you say. I am coming from the sport, and when I was younger, I used to travel a lot. Traveled to USA, Australia, North Africa, almost all European countries.

Coming to WA a few years ago, i didn't realise the potential and the whole system we have on hand here. Can you imagine to build it up by yourself? It will take years, a lot of money and knowledge.

I always liked to travel, meet people, see some other countries, make photos, etc. Within WA i "revoked" my passion to read, write and create. I was always thinking that writing for the web is some "rocket science", and that is much different than in the "real" life (although is internet already indisputable part of the lives of almost half of the world's population). I was wrong. Although some points are different than in the offline world, It is still a lot of fun to write online.

Thanks for being part of your network.
Wish you much success!

Thank you so much, Igor! Glad to connect on this amazing platform.

Reading and writing were always passions of mine too, but when I started considering creating my own blog and sharing my thoughts online... I found that I was procrastinating hard and my perfectionist tendencies took over!

I'm battling those effectively during the last year though, and now I enjoy the rush of hitting the "Publish" button after every new post! My focus this year is trying to balance the time I spend being a consumer (reading other people's posts and articles) with the time I spend being a creator (writing my own content).

All the best to you too and I wish you great success, and as you mentioned, lets have fun while doing this! :)

Hello Nicky!

Thank you for the follow. I've added you to my network. I would love to be able to travel the world! Reading and learning are 2 of my favorite hobbies too.

I understand the need for a personal blog. I've somehow managed to merge both business and personal into my website, but don't ask me how I managed to do it as I'm not really sure of it myself.

Best of luck on your new blogs and success!

Hi Nicky! So glad to connect with you! I was curious if there are many of people from my generation in this community. I found you by typing "millennials" into the search box up top. Ha! Then, when I saw your post on MBTI - I knew you were my girl! I'm looking forward to reading your travel blog, but I'm most excited about seeing our great success in 2018!
Reply
Nicky33 Premium
Thanks for the kind words, Tish! When I saw you're living the RV life and your Instagram photos, I said "this is my girl" too, haha

My travel blog is in its infant stage but I set myself a schedule that I'll keep in 2018, posting at least 2 times a week, so I want it to have grown by the end of the year! I have so many travels to document, and advice on the expat lifestyle.
I'm also developing a WA bootcamp site, promoting WA for location-independent people, so I have my hands full!

What's your MBTI type by the way? I'll check out your website later too and leave a comment :)

Cheers to a great, exciting and successful 2018!
Have a nice weekend and happy travels :)

I began blogging about two weeks ago, so I'd say mine is in the infant state as well! I'm thinking of starting a new personal blog soon for travels and tips. Or maybe I'll just eventually let my current blog morph into that.

My MBTI type is INFJ. I know it sounds strange, but that MBTI test probably saved my life. I was in a low place in life and actually googled " why am I so strange?" MBTI came up in the search results, I took the test, and it felt like all of my questions had been answered. I've joined online support groups for INFJs and I'm in a much better place now that I understand who I am as a person. I'm also a strong empath, so my full-time job as a nurse takes a huge toll on me. This is one reason I'm so desperate to make my online business work.

Hope your weekend is going well!
Here's to our great success in 2018!

Nicky33 Premium
I checked out your website and will leave you a comment, it looks pretty good so far! I think that you could include trips and destinations and traveling advice into it, since your targeted audience is people who love traveling anyways.
But you'll see how it goes, it's an evolving process and the more you write, the more clarity you'll get :)

I had a similar experience with MBTI when I discovered it years ago! As an INTP, I always felt like an alien among my family and peers. Yours and mine are pretty rare types, and being an introvert gets so easily misunderstood. So it was a huge relief to discover that there are other people like me, and knowing my shadow functions I was able to work on improving the aspects of my personality I didn't like, without being too harsh on myself.

But each one of us is different and I think we shouldn't get too attached to any kind of labels and limit our perception of ourselves. We can always change the aspects we don't like, or form new habits, but knowing our fundamental functions certainly helps heaps. I've only known one INFJ and I admire her for her empathy and nurturing qualities, like yourself, but it's super important to set boundaries as it's so easy to lose yourself and get drowned in other people's problems and emotions! All the more reason and motivation for you to succeed here :)

Hope you're having a great weekend too!

NIcky,

What excites you seems all very exciting! Travelling and seeing the world. Something I have only done through Google searches and on a screen. Don't get me wrong I live in one of the most beautiful parts of the world I am told and I love to get out and hike, kayak, camp, and travel locally. I love to drive. So I suppose I can relate a little to your passion. It does sound exciting!

Best wishes for lasting online success to you!

Thank you, Carl! It's amazing to live in a country that provides you with these opportunities to appreciate beautiful nature and go on small getaways and road trips :)

We're on the same page about that. I am planning on travelling as soon as my sites start clicking over some decent income. Actually Greece is one of my favorite countries in the world - so beautiful, but not the easiest place for a woman to break into physics. Thats quite an accomplishment and Im sure that if you turn that energy into online business you are going to do phenomenally well.

Hi Nicky, thanks for following me. I too have heard the world calling and left that PhD in interdisciplinary continental theory and university teaching for a different life. In reality, quantum has turned 200 yrs of philosophy on its head but the Humanities and SocSci are in deep denial about what physics has brought to the table. Ah well, not my fight anymore, as you note, freedom is more important. I hope you love being here at WA as much as I do.

Nicky33 Premium
Thanks for connecting, I absolutely agree with you and yes, I love being a member of this community and working towards my personal goals! After I finished with my Masters degree, I was disillusioned about the world of Academia. Some scientists I've met are even more dogmatic than religious people!

And yes, some concepts of Physics that are being formed currently are in agreement with eastern philosophy ideas for example, and I find that fascinating. Neurology, quantum entanglement and consciousness. But my love for freedom and traveling mindfully is bigger :)
Plus, I'm interested in so many things that I would be miserable studying a very narrow topic for 3-4 years for a PhD. Now I only keep track of Physics and technology advancements out of interest and curiosity, we live in exciting times.

Happy to meet you here, wish you a great, healthy and successful 2018!

Hello Nicky,

Thank you so much for connecting with me. I am impressed and honored a little bit scared also. I never understood how some could understand math and physics. I know for sure it is the most difficult study.
So you might feel like playing here around....
It is nice to have you here and I like your way of separating a personal blog from a money niche one. I did the same.

I am looking forward to working with you.

Thanks for your kind words! I happened to like Math and Physics because I saw them as the path to understand the Universe, which fascinated me since I can remember myself :)

Yes, I decided to keep my travel blog as a personal site and not focus on monetizing it, but now with 2 websites I find that I struggle to keep myself committed to both! I need to organize my time better.

Wishing you all the best on your online endeavors and here in WA, happy to connect with you in this amazing platform!

Interesting, Nicky...I have access to 25 sites?
I'm focusing on the one!!...as, I also, have a responsibility to WA!
I'm dividing my time, in two, already...and it's working...add another?? No, way! All, will suffer, and I'll want to bail!!...Just, quit, it all! Greed, would be the motivation, and that's not for me.
Let, Me, do one!!, right!! Feel, confident...and if, another idea, should come along...that's God's time...and he will, pave the way!

Reply
Nicky33 Premium
I'm also holding on to two for the time being, I don't think I could handle adding another one!

If I create more websites in the future, it will be because I have many interests that could translate to different niche websites. But you are right, for the time being I'd spread myself too thin if I added more, and everything would suffer.

I have created some test websites for free (domain dot siterubix dot com) and I will return to them when I have succeeded with the ones I'm focusing on now :)

Thanks for the feedback!

Hi! Nicky,

Since you are 7 months more senior than me at WA age, I would like to invite you to critique the layout and contents of www.ebettercare.com, which has been under its 66-days construction. Please focus on its weak points for monetization. Thereby, I have a hope to advance into the territory of an effective Internet marketing. Your effort would be appreciated.

Best to your health and success,

Nicky33 Premium
Hello Dr. Chin, sorry for the late reply!

I visited your website and though I'm not very familiar with this niche, I can tell that it looks very professional and inviting! Some of your posts are exploring issues that many men deal with, so I guess the monetization will come from doing reviews of products they would find useful.

I also like that you include more general posts (like the "Capital of Life - Life as an Investment") but you're still on topic, since our health of mind and lowering our stress levels plays a big role in taking good care of ourselves!

I believe you recently changed your website's theme? I had visited a few days ago and saw a different footer and layout. I like how you arranged your categories in the top of your menu (I suppose this theme doesn't allow a sidebar that shows "most recent posts", "most recent comments" etc?

Keep up the good work, you've created some amazing content already!

It's nice to met you. It sounds like you love learning. I do, too. I got my Master's in Adult Education in 2006. I just wanted to learn how Adults learn, and so much more came with that information in my course work. It was all online, and I got summa cum laude at the top of my class. I was so excited until the student loans started presenting themselves for payment. I'm hoping that my work here will help with those bills.

Hello Jack, thanks for checking up on me!

I finished my brain-storming on niche ideas, and now analysis-paralysis starts kicking in, since I'm interested in so many things and don't know where to begin!

Here's what I've got so far:
- Travel.
Since I already have a travel blog, maybe I should choose a niche outside of traveling (because I guess I'll incorporate any links to travel affiliate products in posts I write there.)
OR
I could choose a travel sub-niche for a WA website and back-link to my travel blog and vice-versa. (ex:travel related books)

- Reading.
This is a huge passion of mine, I'm literally a bookworm! I can choose a niche by deciding on a specific genre (fantasy, self-help, non-fiction etc.)

- Mental Health.
I have studied psychology on my own for years, and as this is a very broad niche, I would need to specify on depression/coping mechanisms/self-help/avoid procrastination etc.

What frustrates me is that after I choose one of these 3 topics, I still have to choose a sub-niche!

Any input would be highly appreciated :)

Actually, if you already have a travel blog, you can capitalize on it. Is your travel blog in wordpress? What I believe is to create one amazing website that generate money before jumping to another. Could you share your blog address with me?

Hello, Nicky,
Thank you for the follow, I am following you back. I am going to read your travel blog, I myself plan to have one someday soon. Traveling has been a great experience for me meeting people from all walks of life quite like WA. I travel mostly for food and coffee :)
More on that some other time. Thank you for the follow and I wish you all the success and freedom you desire,

Thomas

Hi Thomas,

Food and coffee are two of the best reasons to visit far-away places, as they provide you with new and exciting experiences!

Great to meet you Nicky and thanks for the follow...Travel is one of the niches I am also involved in...As a wanderer over the last 43 years and longer as a kid with my family - it is a passion for me too...

Best of luck on this online marketing thing, it can work in any niche and with the travel portion out of your effort, there are plenty of other niches to pursue...

Perhaps we can help one another out on the travel side of things...I am always looking for guest bloggers, for instance, and share good posts, videos, and images on our Facebook fan page and elsewhere...

Let's stay in touch!

Cheers!

Hi Dave, great to meet you too!

I followed your social media links on your profile, nice website too :) wow, so many years of traveling! Sometimes I wish I was born in the 60s so I could travel the world in the 80s and 90s when the internet and google maps and travel apps weren't a thing! In a way, I believe this provided for a more... authentic experience. Of course, traveling is made easier now with all this technological progress, and more people are being encouraged to get out of their comfort zones and experience the world. So I guess it's like every other situation - it has both pros and cons and it's up to us to decide what kind of an experience we want :)

I wanted to ask you, what do you mean about the travel portion being out of my effort? I have recently started my travel blog but I don't aim at monetizing it just yet... Would you recommend starting a website in another niche, here at WA?

Feel free to follow me back on my social media too, cheers!

Hey Nicky!

First of all thanks for the follows on the social platforms, I will do the same...Appreciate the positive comments on the sites as well...

On my comment with a possible second niche...

I guess I was thinking that you were doing two pushes, one not for monetization and one for...That is the reason I said that above...

I do understand sticking with one to start with and in reality. it is quite hard to monetize any new site until you have some content and a following...

So no worries at all, you are good!

It is so great to meet a fellow wanderer here. My partner and I have been fortunate enough to visit quite a few places over the years...

Definitely having the mindset that you have you are well fitted to leverage this to have success in the online world I think...

It is a matter of putting your thoughts, experiences, and feelings together in a way that others will be eager to see...

Cheers!

Hi Nicky!
Had a look at your travel blog site. I think it takes a very good shape. You're definively a talented writer! Please go on writing, you will get a huge audience.

I love to travel too. It opens up your mind and it's so exciting to see and meet other cultures.

Now I better go on working on my Website.

Have a great sunny day!

Oh, thank you so much for your feedback!! :D
Yes I absolutely agree, traveling is the only thing you buy that makes you richer! It's invigorating for me, and it's true that by losing yourself in new cities and landscapes you get to discover parts of yourself - especially with solo travel!

But as you said about your website, I struggle too with the content - not because I don't have ideas but because I have too many! (blog posts about the many trips I've had in the past 6 years and my expat lifestyle). And I'm a perfectionist and now I'm stuck with several drafts avoiding the "publish" button...

Oh well, we'll keep on working and persevering and making progress. Good luck with writing content about your website - I didn't see any link on your profile, which niche are you working on?

Greeting from sunny Bangkok, have a sunny and productive day too! kisses :)

Hi Nicky!
You are welcome - just told you the truth!

I'm a perfectionist too, that's why I haven't put a link to my website on my profile yet. When I have come so far, you'll get informed. I'd love to get a feedback from you. My niche is within "how to live a healthy life".

Have wonderful time traveling around!
Sunny kisses from Switzerland.

Hello Nicky,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hi Loes, thank you! I will definitely check out your helpful blog and I'm grateful I found this community of like-minded, supportive people! I want my niche to be travel-related, but I have so many ideas that it's hard to narrow anything down and that makes me procrastinate...
Looking forward to my journey here, and as you say - it should be pleasurable and fun :)

All the best to you for 2017, I wish you lots of success in any way you define the word!

Hey Nikoleta! Just wanted to follow up and see how you're doing so far. Hope you've been enjoying the training offered here and the community as well.

You must be wondering if you can really make money after going through the courses here in WA. Truthfully, it can be done because I have experimented it and I know it works.

Just wanted to let you know that if you have upgraded to the premium membership, it covers the full spectrum of training, there will not be any further products that you "need" to purchase within the members area. This is unlike any programs out there.

Personally, I feel that the WA course is the best stepping stone for any one who wants to start an online business. You will be a seasoned affiliate marketer after going through the entire WA course.

See what the premium membership offers:

Let me know if you have any questions or need a hand with anything! I will be more than happy to help you out to build a successful future for you.

Cheers!

I will sign up for the Premium membership tomorrow, and take advantage of the Bonuses you offer!
My biggest obstacle when I start anything new, is procrastination. But I won't let it get to me this time, I believe with this community's support I will stay motivated to reach my goals!

And thanks for the advice not to overdo it and get overwhelmed, it can certainly get overwhelming!

Looking forward to the Premium benefits, have a good day.

Hi Jack, thanks for the welcome!

I requested to join your FB group, actually I found your website through a google search for Digital Altitude.
In my niche (travel) I am getting approached on Instagram and Facebook a lot about joining this and that MLM, and I'm always wary, since I wasted my time long ago with Amway and I never intend to get involved with a pyramid scheme again!
I agree with everything you wrote on the article, my main objection is also the ethics and the absence of morals and how people are pressured to level up by questionable "mentors"!
Lots of brainwashing happening in these (cult-like, sometimes) schemes!

Anyways, I'm excited to start my journey with WA, I have read only good things about it after a long research on how to start with internet marketing :)

Just a question:
the Premium promo is 19$ for the first month, and after that the monthly fee is 49$?

Thank you,
Nicky

Hi Nicky,

Apologies for my late response.

I'm glad that you found WA and I've approved your FB request.

Yup, the first month is $19 and the subsequent months are $49.

I am sure you will get a ton of information on building your online business, but I caution that you should not be overwhelmed by absorbing too much information at a time.

Focus on the step by step courses, and take action after each lesson.

I am always available for you, just leave me a profile message, or if you've become a premium member, you can send my private messages to ask for help.

Looking forward to work with you.

Cheers!
Jack
