Bio for Stephen Stefanski

I started on the internet in 1981 when there was no such things as websites. They were called bulletin boards. Any information or programs you needed you would download from these sites. I enjoy working on the internet. Its my golf game, fishing, and vacation all rolled into one. What I like more than the internet is helping you to reach your full potential with your business online. Trust me not every person will accomplish this the first time out.
I live in Brasil where I spend my day teaching the locals English and working on my internet business. Its a great day when you can wake up in a rain forest or on the beach put in two hours of work and be done for the day without ever leaving your beach chair. Working at www.affiliateheaven.siterubix.com
It took me a long time to fully understand the potential of the internet. I'm what you might call a "Smack him up aside the head until he listens." But one day I had an epiphany. All of a sudden I realized that my failures had noting to do with the programs I had bought. The people that gave me advice, or the cups of coffee I drank util three o'clock in the morning. It was me, myself and I. When I came to this realization I stopped everything and took a hard look whether or not the internet was for me. I said yes and I began to rebuild. But differently. According to my plan and not someone else. I read books like "Think and Grow Rich" and the "Magic of Thinking Big". But most of all I stopped what I cal l Being in Internet Quicksand. You know the drill. You wake up in the morning and check your emails looking for the perfect internet program. My spam folder would have more then two thousand emails that I would never read. I would't have time to even look at them. So the first thing I did was I looked at all the emails I was receiving that were just about information or asking me to join their program. I made a hard decision and hit the unsubscribe button. My mail box was finally empty. I had my life back. Then I found WA - Wealthy Affiliate program. Not just a place to learn how to make money on the internet, but a serious home. Needless to say I have never for one minute looked back.

$10000/month would make me ecstatic
Time is not a problem. I will work about 30 hours per week. Compared to 80 hours in the US its nothing.

It seems to me that "rich" and "independently wealthy" are points of view (and relative to geography). Recently I ate a plain hamburger and drank a cup of coffee at McDonalds. The cost was 4000 Korean Won. At present currency exchange rates, that is approximately equal to minimum wage per hour when I was at OSU in 1980. The same afternoon, I sent $150.00 to my god-daughter in Manila. With that, she paid for tuition,lab fees, books, and school uniforms, for 1 semester at the University of Manila, and had enough extra pesos to take her mother to lunch.
A friend of mine used to say that she wanted to marry a man who could keep her in the fashion TO WHICH SHE WOULD LIKE TO BECOME accustomed!
I hope you, and her, find the success you seek!

I think it might be impossible to have a bad weekend there lol. Sounds beautiful, we are in full swing of summer here and it has been a scorcher thus far (breaking records here in Canada).

Have a great week ahead Stephen!
