About Peterg77
Joined June 2015
In the past I had always worked making money for other people. I worked for 15 years in the freight industry building a steady and well paid job. But I knew that some day I would work for myself. That opportunity came about in 2009 when I was made redundant. (So for me the recession was the best thing that could have happened). There is nothing worse then that feeling of worthlessness. Even though I knew it wasn't my fault that I was let go it didn't help the way I felt. From that day on I swore I would never let myself get in that position again.

So I had my redundcy and set about finding a new career opportunity. That came in the form of a franchise. It was expenisive to get into but lucky for me my brother was made redundant in the November of 2009 and I convienced him to also put his redundcy into the franchise. So our contract ended in Nov 2014 and we didn't renew it. Again I found out that with a franchise you are never working for yourself. You are always promoting some elses brand. They call the shots and if you don't like they can revoke your francise rights immedately.

So In December 2014 my brother and myself started our own business in the same market. We are holding our own but it is slow trying to build up our web presence again.

I'm not here to build up our company website. I have for the last 2 years been studying all about affiliate marketing but have never done anything about it. Recently I have been gettinng more restless and I finally made the decision to pull the trigger and sign up. After much research I reckon wealthy affiliate seemed to be the best supported.

Our business is physically demanding and I don't want to be doing it for the rest of my life. I want the try take things a little easier. Now don't get me wrong I'm a very hard worker. I have 3 wounderful children and a beautiful, supportive wife. I get up every morning at 6am and don't go to bed until 11pm. I know all about what it takes to get a business up and running and I love a challenge. My life is actully great. But I know I can make it even better.

Sorry for the long winded story but this is actually the first time I have ever written anything on the web for people to read. This is all probably garbage but I didn't know what else to write.

I hope that this is what it claims to be. All I can do is give it my all and hopefully I will get the rewards I deserve.

Thank you
Peter

Hi Kyle,

I just have one question. I hope you don't take this negatively as I'm going to give this process my all and I truly want to succeed. But I was just wondering if I sign up to premium does that mean I'm locked in for the year or can I cancel at anytime? I know once I start making money this will not be an issue but until then I know it will be at the back of my head. I have never done anything like this before so I'm still a bit skeptical about the whole thing.

As I said at the beginning please don't take this as being negative as I'm really excited about this journey.

Thank you for your time.

Peter

You are in full control, definitely no obligations or contracts. We don't operate like that.

So my recommendation is to try to first month and see how you like it and go for there. Do know that absolutely everything you need to create and grow a business is here at WA!
