My name is Carl and I,m a retired engineer and programmer located in central UK where I live with my lovely wife and hyperactive daughter.
As Ive been at Wealthy Affiliate for over a year and half thought it was about time to update my profile.
When I first started the training here it was just as a route to maybe getting a little extra money for those luxuries in life but over a year down the line internet marketing has COMPLETELY CONSUMED my life, but in a very good way.
Have managed to carve out a number of good income streams that are seriously starting to mount up each month. It hasn't been all easy going and found myself working long hours in the beginning just to get things on track.
The madness of the early days has now turned into a 4 day a week job with reasonable hours and (nearly) every weekend off :)
My words of advice would be these :
1 Pick a niche you know / like / have an interest in, there will be a lot of writing and its hard if you don,t have any passion at all for the subject.
2 Start one site and stick with it until you know what your doing. You WILL make mistakes and they're a lot easier to fix on one project rather than ten.
3 Learn, Learn, Learn. There are so many aspects to internet marketing along with so many ways to make money. Look around at what others are doing and see if it fits the way you want to work online.
