About Partner
Joined October 2013
Expat living in The Philippines, and have been searching for THE SOLUTION to a decent online income that I can pass on to my 7 years old son. And this looks like it! Lived here for 9 years, married to a lovely wife and have reached the unbelievable age of 62 (on paper ;-) Have tried it all online, and glad I don't know how much I have spent and lost during the years. But I consider it as "educational expenses", without them, I wouldn't be where I am today. I believe that "when the time is right, the teacher appears", and that happens sometimes quickly - sometimes "not so quickly". I have some experience in many fields incl. websites, but there is a big part missing to get it going for that continuous income. I am "all ears" and will try my best to be a valid player and look forward to meet you all in Wealthy Affiliate. An appropriate proverb:

There are no good experiences or no bad experiences only learning experiences. Sounds like you've "learned" that.

Hello Arne. I found a comment that you left a fellow WA member and appreciated your encouragement for him. Thank you too for the nice "get to know you" profile you have posted and your blogs. It is apparent that as you are working the program, you are seeing successes. This is encouraging! Hope you and your family are well.

Thanks for your kind words Linda. Much of life is about attitude ;-) The monetary success are not there YET, but I've put in something I didn't have before, and that is "patience"....I can feel that is needed in many aspects of life. I look forward to follow YOUR success as well ;-)

Not having any luck on Firefox but I noticed the comma after www. Just trying to go to unhappymarrige.net was not successful either. Hope you can sort it out. I know WA will be ready to give suggestions.

Thanks for pointing that out - I've changed the "comma" and you should have no problem to get to my website now. Thanks again.

Thanks for the follow Mike, many blessings on all your efforts. FYI I just tried the link to your website and it couldn't connect. Hope it is my computer but just wanted to give a heads up. Please any member seeing this just test the link and let Mike know the result. I will try to go there directly on Firefox.

Saw a comment you made on another page and so came over here to see your space on WA. How interesting -- we have been to Thailand and were considering doing the expat thing perhaps around Chiang Mai. Already did one major leap going from mainland US to Hawaii -- those big moves are not for the faint of heart. Love you use the "teacher appears" quote -- Wayne Dyer said that so many times! Hope to keep up with you in the future. Best of luck with your websites and Happy Holidays!

Thanks Mike, I've just left a comment on YOUR profile ;-) I appreciate to connect with you and as long as you minimize your fear and believe in "most things will work out fine", you are on your way;-) The economic side might be a good enough reason to make the leap, since your $'s will last you much longer in any of these 2 countries. Then you have of course, many other benefits, one of the biggest for me is that to socialize is still a common thing here. In other words the quality of life is for me second to none, since I've come to the point in my life that my happiness is an inside job, and comes in abundance through helping - and being of service to others.

Thanks for the follow back. I guess when I saw expat I totally forgot that could be many places. I know very little about the Philippines. What do you do there that is helping/service oriented?
Reply
partner Premium
The help/service can be in many areas, just by you being an expat with much more resources than most, you can chose your own. I have learned though, the difference between "enabling" and "helping", and I guess for most that is a normal progression when living in a developing country. But the economy here is one of the best in the world right now, however those who are in need of help are for the most unaware of it. Read up on "livinginthephilippines", a good source for expats, written and run by one. Prepare for a different culture, and be willing to take the best - and disregard the rest. Sometimes the biggest reward you get is to see that someone else succeed because you believed in him and supported him when he needed your help;-)

Thanks Norma, and I live very close to where the storm hit, but fortunately still far enough away so nothing serious happened. Only out of electricity for 36 hours. But the damage is almost hard to believe and the suffering I certainly cannot fathom. I am still missing a good friend of mine who lived right where the storm was ripping through. I fear for the worst but hope for the best. Thanks for your kind words, best wishes from Arne/Philippines

Hey Partner, Thanks for the supportive comment. Funny you mentioned flowers by the side of the road, my brothers and I made a killing on mothers day & valentines day doing that at a young age as well. Good luck moving forward here at WA, regards, Damien.

Thanks Kyle and Steve,
This is very different from what I am used to ;-)
I have a good feeling about you guys and that the goals I just posted will be reachable thanks to the training and the warm support from so many people. I have tried for many years to do it my own, but have always come to an obstacle that made me give up and turn to something else......
There is strength in numbers and " We" is a powerful word.
