About Scubajoe
Joined July 2015
45 years young and living in NZ (currently).
I've spent most of my working life working within my own businesses and have always struggled as an employee although this is the situation i find myself in currently.
I have lived and worked in New Zealand, England, Israel and the Philippines. A bit diverse I know, but that's how I roll.
I've been keen to start an online business since I lived in the Philippines a few years back and was at a loss as what to do with myself.
I looked into online marketing a bit but without any backup or consistent internet access there it all sort of fizzled out, besides I was diving all day as a guide and chillin on the beach in the evenings. Hey someones gotta do it :)
Anyway here I am with a beautiful partner and the sweetest daughter I would do anything for and working 45 plus hours a week for someone elses dream.. Not ideal and not my dream!
So somethings gotta change.
I believe, and always have, that we are the masters of our own destinies and I have and will always take full responsibility for my position in life.
This brings me to where we are now.
I so look forward to succeeding with this so I can bring back the freedom of choices, travel and the worldly education I wish to share with my daughter.
Let the games begin. And remember...

" the journey of a thousand miles starts with one step"

To your ever lasting success

Hi Steve,

Welcome to WA and thanks for the follow - followed you back.

You found the right place to get up to speed with the Affiliate Marketing business. I'm loving every day of being a part of WA and I learn something every day! I have a lot of skills to learn.

Start with the Certification course (Getting Started) and have fun!

I'd love to visit NZ one day. A pal of mine is out there at the moment for the Rugby tour.

All the best,
Paul

Hi Scubajoe, thanks for the follow and I will follow you as well. I can see you are a hard working man. Yes, it is a waking experience to see that you are working extremely hard for someone else dream to come true. This is the time for you/us to work hard for ourselves and be the master of our destinies. Best of luck to your new business.

Good morning to you, Steve, My name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I'm following you back. I apologize for the lateness of this greetings.
I also believe that we control our own destinies and we create our own choices, to either make our our own dream a reality, or help someone else to create theirs. Knowledge without application is meaningless. It doesn't put food on the table nor helps toward building a legacy for your family.
I suggest watching the Live Video Training every Friday evening with Jay, at 7 pm. You will get much valuable tips to use that will help you market yourself online.
I look forward to working with you and if I can help in any way, just ask. I wish you much success and prosperity in your journey.

Hey Steve or Joe but not Gaty, Thanks for the follow. You are a free spirit! I love it! You make me want to pack a bag and just go and figure it out when I get there.

As soon as this journey I'm on makes just a little money I'm on that 1000 mile journey.

Hi Scubajoe..Since you were diving all day and chilling on the beech you were already a success. was the problem for internet access while you were in the Philippines? I hope all is much better for you right here at WA. yes masters of our own destiny ; however i wonder if it is already predetermined?
Reply
scubajoe Premium
Hi Thomas.
Yes indeed that was a successful time in my life...part of my bucket list.
Predetermined?...possibly. There does seem to be a lot of incredible coincidences in life that can't be explained. Part of a predetermined plan perhaps?
I wish you great success in whatever you pursue Thomas.

Thank you for inviting me to follow, Steve! One thing is certain: Your writing style is (what are the best words in English?) - let me just say good. You will be able to reach people - on a personal level, too. Just by reading, it feels like we should give a response of some kind. I will come back here - to learn from you on more than one level. I'm in for the long haul, in small steps, continuing from prior work and experience. Reading the varied profiles & sites here is motivating. Needless to say, WA & community is the best place to be! Also, as I'm sure you know, Outdoors is close to our Norwegian hearts.

Meanwhile,
All the best!

Hi Scubajoe

Thanks for the follow.

I loved your post about your daughter.

I also had two very scary pregnancies- a son born at 3 pounds at 32 weeks and a daughter born at 4 pounds at 34 weeks.

Of course we prepped for bad but were blessed with amazing children. Being a nurse by trade I knew what the doctors were saying but my 'Mommy' heart knew it would all be well.

They are a fantastic gift from above that I treasure everyday. They have helped me see the true wonder of life. They challenge me everyday to be the best person I can be. and I am thankful everyday and honored that I am their Mom.

Sounds like you have been very busy with all those different site. Wishing you the best of luck.

Aha...so you're Gary!...that clears that up then. Cheers for the reply. Yep the water is where I de-stress...scuba, free dive, fish and just unwind.
I had a niche in the camping arena that sort of crashed and burned ha ha. I didn't give it the attention it needed...lesson learned! Rebuilding phase currently after a bit of time away sorting personal issues. Pumped to be back at WA. Best place to learn whats needed.
Hope you're enjoying everything here so far.

Thanks for sharing. I will always remember that phrase, "will always take full responsibility for my position in life". We tend to blame others for our failures instead of searching for new opportunities to find success. Yet, sometimes we have the answer right in front of us but we not willing to make sacrifices and work hard.

Good afternoon Steve,

Traveling is one of the nicest things one can do, meeting new people does broaden your horizon.
I do not know if I will live here the rest of my life as my partner tells me NZ is beautiful. So you never know where I might end up at least a visit is on the list. Do please have a look at my 2 posts.
Thank you for the follow and good luck.

Hi Joe,Thanx for the follow, very encouraging bio in your profile.I guess we all at one stage went 'off-line' when our 'online ' ventures never materialized, since you are a scuba diver , you have confronted , experienced and embraced challenges underwater, so definitely with W/A you will conquer all of the above and gain the 'ocean of knowledge ', remember 'success is a journey and not a destination ', success to one and all in their venture with W/A

Hello Steve-or-Joe-but-not-Gary,

It sounds like you are on the right track to me! I absolutely agree that we are in charge of our own destinies, and the first step to freedom is realizing that we have the power to change our situation.

We are all here to support each other, one step at a time... So let's get out there and start the journey!

Nice to meet you, and wishing you all the best,

Hello Scubajoe,
Things can change ... more so now with your focus on the family .. that is where your success is just round the corner.
Building up your knack on your insatiable curiosity can be one of your talents ... you will excel once you know the ropes, so keep asking questions ... the community is waiting.
Cheers.

Thanks for that. Family sure is a motivator for me as it is for many here. Plenty of ropes to learn but we'll get there. I wish you well on your journey.
