About PatrikW
Joined May 2015
Hi WA members, my name is Patrik and I am from Stockholm, Sweden. My goal is to become a successful online entrepreneur and to continue to travel the world.

I have been working as a Key Account Manager, Project Leader, Graphic Designer and Web Developer at digital agencies in Stockholm for several years. I have always been very successful at what I do.

Two years ago I began to feel that I wanted to do something different, that gives me more meaning in my daily life. I quit my job, sold my apartment, and went on a life changing journey to Asia backpacking, from what I got to experience many great adventures, I met inspiring people, new cultures, went to mindfulness meditation retreats in India and Thailand, got treated at hospital in Vietnam for dengue fever, lived in mountain villages in Laos. And much more.

I went to East Africa for an internship after that, to help an agricultural NGO in marketing and communication. I’ve experience the countryside of Kenya and Tanzania, seen great nature reserves, wild animals, snorkeling in Zanzibar, got treated at hospital in Tanzania for malaria, met a beautiful girl (who now lives in England). And much more.

Currently I am back home in Sweden recovering from malaria (which means I spend a lot of time home). I am totally new as an self-employed and in online marketing. I see this moment in my life as a good opportunity to start my journey in becoming a successful self-employed, to be able to determine my own working conditions and to be able to have geographic freedom. I am now joining and trying Wealthy Affiliates to see if this is the right platform that can support me in reaching my goals.

Besides travel, I also like to exercise, meditate, snowboarding and enjoy good food and good company! I also like to challenge my brain with various mind-bending games!

Thank you for reading my profile description and good luck on your own journey,
Patrik

Hello Kyle and thanks for the welcome!

I have a few questions that I have been thinking about in the last few days which I hope you can help me to answer, which makes me hesitate in my decision:

Question 1: Is it possible to extend my test-time with a few days, about 7 days? I'm home sick and therefore currently not able to do everything in the fast tempo as I intend (I am just going through Online Entrepreneur Certification Course 1). My intention is to finish all the courses you have.

Question 2: If I upgrade to Premium Member for $19, do I have the ability to then end premium account after 1 month if I am not satisfied? As it is right now I can not afford to pay $47 the following months because I have had no income for the last 6 months (because I am ill and unemployed). This is partly why I'm here, to change my situation.

Question 3: Do I need to start my own business in order to get paid in online marketing (for ads, traffic, click etc)? Or can I do this as a private person, can this be classed as a hobby? Or do I need to report/pay VAT as a company?

Question 4: Do I have to be good at writing in English in order to succeed? I do not have excellent writing skills in English.

Question 5: Is this market only in English/English speaking countries? Or is there also a market in Sweden/Swedish, with only 9 million citizen? Is it possible to make money even there?

Question 6: If possible, I would be very grateful if you could read my profile description and let me know if there is something in the description that is difficult to read, if I have made any mistake in with English. My English writing skills is something I'm working on :-)

Thanks so much for your attention!

Best Regards from Sweden,

First off, great to have you here at WA Patrik! In response to your questions here:

Question 1: Is it possible to extend my test-time with a few days, about 7 days? I'm home sick and therefore currently not able to do everything in the fast tempo as I intend (I am just going through Online Entrepreneur Certification Course 1). My intention is to finish all the courses you have.

There is no end to your Starter membership, so you can take your time to upgrade at your own pace. So don't worry about a "test period" as it does not end.

Question 2: If I upgrade to Premium Member for $19, do I have the ability to then end premium account after 1 month if I am not satisfied? As it is right now I can not afford to pay $47 the following months because I have had no income for the last 6 months (because I am ill and unemployed). This is partly why I'm here, to change my situation.

You are in full control of your membership, you can cancel it at any time and then resubscribe at anytime you like and reconnect your membership.

Question 3: Do I need to start my own business in order to get paid in online marketing (for ads, traffic, click etc)? Or can I do this as a private person, can this be classed as a hobby? Or do I need to report/pay VAT as a company?

You don't need a business, I usually don't recommend creating an company until you reach a minimum of $50,000 per. You can claim income the same way you would any personal income.

Question 4: Do I have to be good at writing in English in order to succeed? I do not have excellent writing skills in English.

Your English is more than fine, I can tell you that right now...better than most people that grew up speaking English. :)

Question 5: Is this market only in English/English speaking countries? Or is there also a market in Sweden/Swedish, with only 9 million citizen? Is it possible to make money even there?

You can target any audience in any language you like. This is the Internet, it is global in nature and the direction you head is up to you.

Question 6: If possible, I would be very grateful if you could read my profile description and let me know if there is something in the description that is difficult to read, if I have made any mistake in with English. My English writing skills is something I'm working on :-)

Looks great Patrik, don't doubt your skills. You are going to be just fine and if you work hard at this and take action, you are going to make some awesome progress!

Hey there Patrik, how's it going? I'm Pete and I actually referred you here to WA through my website and thought I'd introduce myself while offering you my help and assistance.

I'm a Premium member here, and always will be! I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone. It is absolutely worth it, especially if you have a unique and special interest when it comes to online marketing.

Here are your instructions in case you missed it on how to get started: Let's start the year strong!

Cheers,
Peter

P.S. If you didn't know there is an awesome discount on your Premium membership only for the next 7 days.

============================
Premium Bonuses!!!
============================

Patrik, there are lots of advantages that await you when going Premium. Here are just a few included with your first month bonus:

- BONUS: 59% discount on your 1st month (as you likely already know)! That's $19 to get your full-time business up and running online.

- Unlimited access to step-by-step training, community, help, and support (including Live Chat & Daily Webinars).

- Direct access to me and others (by private messaging). I know Internet marketing inside and out. I go at it full-time here in WA, so I'm more than excited to help you succeed!

- Access to both Co-founders, Kyle and Carson.

- Unlocking all training that takes you from "Start to Money" :)

- Unlimited websites & hosting.

- MUCH more... Everything you need to succeed is here within Wealthy Affiliate!

While your free membership is extremely valuable, it's used more to get you up and running. So as you start your training, take a look into going Premium. Trust me, it's totally worth it!

Other than that, just glad you are here Patrik! :)

Hey Patrik anytime my friend, it's great to have you here. First off I want to tell you how lucky you are to have done all the things you have. Besides the Malaria, which I hope you successfully recover from. But traveling to all these unique places sounds amazing. Always wanted to see the great reserves in Africa haha.

To answer your questions, I'm not sure whether or not you can extend your 7-day trial. That's something Kyle and Carson would have to help you with.

But to answer question 2, yes you definitely have the ability to end your premium account after one month. There is no obligation to stay if you don't want to or can't for some reason.

In regards to PPC, I don't know if I am the best person to answer that. But I would say that your best bet would be to start up your own online website, drive traffic, and then work from there. I'm really not sure how it can be classed. There is a whole course on this in Phase 7, but again, Kyle and Carson can help you with this.

Depends on the native language you're using. But, if you do choose English, it does not need to be perfect. You're current writing and description is great in my opinion. I don't see any errors and will be excellent for whichever website you plan on starting up.

You're profile description is awesome man. Great job writing it. It has a natural flow to it and I think is one reason you are definitely cut out for WA! I hope these answers help you. Sorry I didn't have the answers to all of these. I believe Kyle and/or Carson should be here soon to help you out though.

For now, I'd go through a class or two a day to get a better feel of Wealthy Affiliate. I also suggest trying out the Live Chat feature, as a ton of community members will be able to help you out there as well. Thanks for the questions Patrik. If you need anything else, let me know.
