Hi, Steve here. As I had just renewed my 2nd year Premium membership, I thought i should update my bio- focusing on why I am here at WA and what I hope to achieve in the IM Universe going forward.
How, who and what got me interested in IM.
It was around 2003-2004 that i first came to hear of Corey Rudl who was considered one of the most successful internet marketer at that time. His hugely popular course were "Insider Secrets To Marketing Your Business On The Internet" & "Car Secrets Revealed: Tips On Car Buying, Leasing, Repairs, Insurance." Sadly, Corey passed away at the age of 35 in a car accident.
Armed with the knowledge I learned from the course, I went into local marketing offering my internet consulting business to local SMEs.
Yeah, it was very profitable then especially for someone who had no technical skills in web design and programming. What I had was the willingness to listen and knock on doors, determined to share the concepts I had learned. Boy, it was fun.
With some success in local marketing, I became a firm believer in the value of learning and was hungry to soak in any internet marketing knowledge I could lay my hand on. So when "the insider secrets to marketing your business on the internet by Derek Gehl were launched, I wasted no time to have the courses that came in two ring binder plus some CDs shipped to me. The materials are still in my study room till today and I enjoy taking them out to read from time to time.
Change the form but not the substance!
Life got in the way and I went on to pursue other interests until I stumped upon Wealthy Affiliate sometime in 2013. However, I didn't pay much attention to it and it was only in 2016 that I became a premium member.
Now that I am part of the WA community, I hope to create profitable online business and embark on the journey of sharing and learning from each other in this wonderful WA community.
