My name is Bogdan and I live in Edmonton. Alberta. I am married and have a son. Romanian by birth and Canadian by choice, I run a successful courier business here in the city.
Ten years ago me and my family discovered the beautiful Mayan Riviera. We have returned to this unparalleled piece of Heaven year after year until, a couple of years ago decided to buy a condo in Puerto Aventuras. I then started to look for ways of earning a sustainable income on the Internet so we can spend more time on the beach and less into the cold. This is when I came across the Wealthy Affiliate website for the first time.
But at the time, my business was in pretty good shape and taking up a lot of my time, so after typing in my email ... I did NOTHING else.
For the past year and a half though, the economy went down and it took with it all of my "collateral" investments (real estate, etc). As I never liked to rely on one source of income alone, I started to look again towards the internet business. Although I have a vague idea about how it works, I never pursued this avenue into further detail before.
I was approached by a very well known MLM internet firm that I'm not sure I am allowed to name here. Enough said it was aggressive and was drawing a bright income picture into my head, along with viral blogs, thousands of followers and huge traffic. I paid a small fee to get in and find out more about the opportunity but soon I realized that my purchase only opened the gate to a way more significant expense. Now, I don't know about you, but when asked to spend thousands of dollars into thin air, I start looking for reviews, pros and cons. This is how I stumbled upon a WA member's review of that business and it all made sense to me. I also remembered that every day for two years I got an email in my inbox saying: "Wealthy Affiliate: Kyle just blogged"
I am taking on this challenge starting from scratch so I will have probably lots of questions to ask but I am determined to secure another source of income here. I know it takes a lot of work but I rely on this highly ranked community and I will not hesitate to give back anytime I can.
Looking forward to meet you all!
