Twenty years ago when computers used DOS and Windows 3.0, we met online.
I lived in Australia and Michelle lived in the USA. At that time this was looked at as weird, now it is quite normal. Back then, 20 years ago, Online Marketing was unknown, but today it has become a major industry.
I've been a teacher, worked with Investment Real Estate, MLM and as a Title Abstractor with the Oil & Gas Industry, we even had our own shop front stores.
We have embarked on this online journey together as a way to increase our family income. We have always worked together since we met and all of our ventures have been reasonably successful. They just did not give us the lifestyle or the income we were expecting.
Our goal is to be happy, healthy, wealthy and wise. May sound like a cliche, but these are the things we really wanted for our lives. To get these things we came to the conclusion, we needed to work from home or where-ever we happened to be. Travel being one of our goals.
Getting involved in the business of Making Money Online was initially very confusing. There are many Online Marketing “Guru’s” offering all sorts of programs and platforms, some costing many thousands of dollars. We spent countless months trying to do our homework and figure it all out. We looked at many ideas, even invested in a couple, only to find out for us, there was some unseen catch. They just did not suit our needs.
We realized we were newbies and had no experience in making money online, so we made a decision to find something where we didn’t have to invest any money to try it out. We wanted something where we could learn as we go to make sure it was going to work for us. Not a limited 30 day “free” trial, we wanted something we could work at our own pace however long it took.
We chose Wealthy Affiliates as we were able to start at no cost, gain a lot of knowledge, and learn marketing online for free. We wanted to find out what it would take in terms of time and effort. Even at no cost, Wealthy Affiliates (WA) has provided a huge knowledge base for us, and the individual support has been truly exceptional.
Regardless of the product, a specific niche or whatever our passion, joining WA has enabled us to easily create websites, learn all the new terms and find the traffic we needed to develop a business and to become Happy, Healthy, Wealthy and Wise. Our original Goal.
We believe shopping online is becoming a major shift in peoples buying habits. We no longer just look at what the brick and mortar shops are providing we now automatically look at what we can get online. Often it is cheaper and is delivered to our front door free of charge.
Our goals and aspirations in life, involve all aspects of being Happy, Healthy, Wealthy and Wise. It requires money to support it. Our goals whether they are large or small, we are finding WA gives us the opportunity to achieve them.
For us initially, our goal was Wealthy, but in recent years, it is the medical issues that have become dominant.
Being our own boss has allowed us to be in charge of our time, gives us control and allows things like medical issues to not have such a major impact on our life. For some of you these challenges have not raised their ugly heads. But be prepared.
To give you some ideas of our health issues, here's a partial list; being diagnosed with Celiac disease, Heart Valve replacement, Aorta Replacement, Macular Degeneration, Cancer, 2 strokes, Carotid Artery surgery (95%blocked). Maybe someday I'll do a post on how we handled these
We can’t wait to get to know you and work with you as we travel this journey together.
Happy to answer any questions you may have.
Rob & Michelle
