Ownonlboss - just call me Steven

Welcome to my profile. Whether you just surfed in through one of my pieces of content on this website or any of my other own websites (Cat Habits or Own Online Boss) or perhaps even coming straight from Twitch, I hereby invite you to read a bit more about why you should join Wealthy Affiliate.

Bachelor Marketing management and IT specialist and programmer of websites.
I got lots of experience and knowledge for helping people start out online to become their own online boss.

I'm interested in mindfulness (learning to be), coaching, renewable energy (hope to build solar), electric vehicles (own one myself) and nature (living in Norway). I love biking, even though I am not currently doing so, also love swimming (got a lake 100m away and oceans and swimming pools nearby).

I live in Norway with my lovely wife Theresa Michelle. We currently have no kids, but we got 5 cats and used to take care as fosterparents of 3-5 more cats from the local RSPCA. Currently only 5 (haha only!), so still a quite big family if you put it that way. We live in nature, less than 100m away from a nice lake.

Originally I am from The Netherlands, where most of my family still resides. Her family is mostly from the UK and Norway btw.

I joined WA through Nathaniell. I have seen many scam sites and MLM stuff that isn't quite my thing. I also have lost some money on a scam site.

I've always been on the digital side of things so writing stuff online is more natural to me.

So at WA I started as a trial of some free days, where I quickly figured out that this was cost effective to invest time and money into. Why?

Because you get excellent training, hosting and many other nice features in one price. I can tell you as a hosting expert, that this deal is SUPER cheap. Even at the full price of 59 USD a month. I paid way less because I went with the Black Friday yearly deal.

My goals:
Ultimately? To make a living with it and stop struggling with different jobs that I don't like to do. I am not going to say that I want to escape the 9-17 cycle, because with an online business you got to work harder than you are used to.

For now? To get my site full of visitors, ranking some pages and gaining a dollar.
Spend? WA membership, Jaaxy enterprise, premium themes, premium plugins, lots of domains.

Update: since may 2018, a little over a year after the start of cat habits, that site is getting sales on Amazon every month. Goal is now to further increase visitors and sales.

Hope you liked reading my profile. Feel free to ask questions, especially web programming or hosting related, but anything else is also welcome.

If you are not part of WA yet, I'd say: Give it a totally FREE try and see for yourself if you can make it online! I can, anyone can. If you join, I will be your personal coach and teach you all the secrets how to make money online and become your own online boss!

Money Goals
I don't like to answer how much money I want to be earning, because rich I don't need to become. I already own everything that I want. Instead I rather answer with that I want to work more freely and independently on where I live or am at.
Currently I am still working at a job and do everything else on the side. I'd like to cut out with the job and have all my side stuff as the main, providing a stable income and to pay off all debts.

Excellent Steven, I know you will achieve your goals. As you start seeing more progress and results, you will be able to spend more time on your business.

When I started out online, I had limited time because I was in school full time and I was able to achieve "full time" status within the online business world in a year. I totally understand that we all have "time" issues in life, but I absolutely know you can do the same and accomplish the same sort of success!

Take action on the training here, immerse yourself within the community, and ask for help when you need it. This is your sure path to your own personal goals and successes Steven! :)

Great to see you stopped by the "goals thread" Steven!

Every little step counts, and making concrete goals to look forward to is going to set you on the right path. My first goal was to make just $1k per month, and I hit that goal several years ago. You can definitely reach your own if you stick with the training here in WA and apply yourself.

Good luck!

it's funny to re-visit this goal (because of an update to the WA profile I ended up here).

I am again partly unemployed and am again re-evaluating my goals. I have set some goals somewhere in the bootcamp section. It is about making a 100 usd a month, 100 referrals in the coming time (until dec) and 25 premiums.

So in true spirit of revisiting these goals:

How much money would you be happy earning?
$100 per month

How much would you be ecstatic earning?
$3000 per month

And how much time are you willing to invest to achieve these goals?
I am investing 5 days a week into this.

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

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made 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 on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016-2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hello Steven and welcome to wealthy affiliate.

Yes I enjoy reading your blogs Robert Allan! Thank you for your contributions to the community!

I will probably start blogging soon too, but it will first of all be rumblings about my progress and experience before I start producing anything useful for others I think ;-)

And thanks for your follow.
Hope your business is doing well and that you are enjoying life.

Hi again Steven it’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your day.

Hi and Welcome to becoming a Premium Member at Wealthy Affiliate. It is a decision you won't regret.

Plenty of training and applying to get on with now. And don't get stuck.

There are at least 3 ways to find an answer to your question.

Top middle where it says hey search for help here.

Top right look for and click pen icon you can ask a question.

Live chat you can type your question although sometimes hard to keep up with it as it's fast paced but good.

Good Luck.
Andi Tointon.

Hi Andi,

Thanks for the quick help there. I was a bit confused about it all. I thought the pen icon was for writing WA blogs. And the chat is indeed a bit fastpaced. I hope they will change the design of that one sometime soon, it flips extremely much up/down and it is harder to follow than any other form of chat I am used to. Will see if there is a suggestions forum somewhere to post that to.

Hope you got any luck sofar Andi.

Hey Steven, I just wanted to check in and see if had a chance to start exploring Wealthy Affiliate. If you haven't started the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course - that's the best place to start. It'll take you through the whole process of how to start your website and how the making money stuff works.

Click the green"Get Started Here" button on the left.

PS. One thing people get stuck on a lot is picking a topic or "niche" for their website. If you are having trouble thinking of something to make your website about let me know and we can figure it out together.

PSS. Just about every new member wants to see some success stories! There are too many to list, but here are a few of my favorites:

Thank you Nathaniell. At first I was like...did I do wrong by following your posts and subscribing into WA, but now I start seeing why this is a great community and that it is actually real and not fake (There are too many fakes out there on the internet that ruin it for the real ones).

The topic/niche thing is definitely hard in the beginning. I thank you for the help you gave me already. Although I am a marketing manager originally, if you do not have the practice (daily) with this.. than this still is a difficult thing. I am slowly building trust in myself that I can do this.

And I am excited to see what more I will learn now that I have become a premium member.

Trust in yourself and the "system" really can be hard things to do, especially when you seem to be working and not seeing results. But results will come as long as you keep quality in mind along the way. Keep moving forward man, you already are off to a great start.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)
