About Smaowa
Joined October 2020
Hi there! I'm totally new to making money online so all help, opinions and feedback on everything I do is highly appreciated!

I'm a curious student of life on my journey to find my calling. To find my happiness and my way of life.

I've been using 6 years of my life to hustle through Engineering Physics in Uppsala University and Aerospace Engineering at KTH Royal Institute of Technology here in Sweden. There's 1-1. 5 years more of study left to graduate in both subjects, but I felt I ought to take a break from the intensive studies during this pandemic...

Now, that I'm back home with my parents, I'm reflecting about how I want to spend my life. Engineering is an option, but there's also so much more. Right now I'm working as an elementary school teacher in my hometown at my old school, where my little sisters go to school.

Whatever I do, I want to achieve and maintain, share with others, but also give to others:

*A good health (can improve)
*An adventurous lifestyle - I'm a skydiver, scuba diver and practice a little bit of parkour, I'm just starting off with climbing and slacklining as well which I love. Without a good health these activities would be short lived. (would like to be more consistent)
*A life close nature (like camping and just being in nature a lot, at the moment happening occasionally)
*Good and caring friendship (CHECK)
*Healthy Leadership (I can grow this area more, the good guy I already have. Just the leadership and confidence part)
*Exciting and passionate love life (maybe a blog about dating advice for men, definitely could improve my dating life and charisma/confidence etc)
*Learning how to learn more efficient, speed reading and general personal development. Those feel like a necessity for me as a student of life, to be able to learn and efficiently incorporate all these elements throughout my journey.

As you can see, I've a long journey ahead and I'm sure that if I could ride on a wave of financial freedom, I would reach my goals quicker.

My ambition is to find a way to grow in all elements above while utilizing affiliate marketing and/or ecommerce on as effectively as I can while working as an elementary school teacher to reach financial freedom.

Thanks for spending your time reading about me!

I've been thinking about creating an all around blog about happiness and so on, but it is probably too broad so I assume I have to choose one of the specific niches. Then, do more research in it so I can provide value within the topic.

Which of the elements* do you think would be most profitable to focus on?

Good afternoon and welcome to the WA family.

Those are excellent goals that you have set yourself, but remember, this is a journey and not a destination. There is a lot of work ahead, so the more effort you put in, the more success you will have.

Enjoy the excellent quality training from Kyle and just ask if you have any questions as we are all here to help you and each other to achieve our goals.

Thank you Geoffrey! Those are the minimum hours per week I hope to spend each week. If I have more time I'll spend more time. If you have the time please read my description and let me know what you think. As I'm a total newbie here I appreciate all the guidance given.

It's late here in Sweden and as you said this is not a one time rush. So, I'll continue tomorrow, so see you then :)

Hey there, am so happy you've completed your money goals, am sure they’re 100% attainable. All the best, wish you success in your endeavors.

Please follow the training and apply what is taught all is explained within the lessons. How to make money online video by Kyle As you go along the coursework, ask as many questions as you like to get clarifications, mark your question as community and someone will always be here to answer your inquiries. You can also blog your questions, that's the Pen, top menu, choose Blog at WA. I believe there's a limit to blogging on the WA blog roll for the first three months.

Again you may like to post about why you choose WA, how you come about your niche, what are your goals for this week and the following, aspirations, etc.

Remember the WA community is no judgement. It is an open discussion. We help each other, we were all at one point where you are right now.

Hi Simon! Welcome to Premium where you'll meet lots of new friends, enjoy great training and support. Feel free to follow me and ask for questions if you need help on the early stages as I’ve undergone same cycle of learning, making mistakes, and getting up to learn again by asking questions to Kyle, Carson and to the community.
Be sure to do each of the lessons and at the end of each lesson is a place for questions to Kyle, especially if you don't understand something.

You will have a lot of questions. That’s alright and normal. Some answers I got within the training program; some of your questions have been answered in the lessons, blogs, videos and tutorials. Ask questions at the end of each lesson. There is a place at the top of your WA dashboard where you can ask a question. Also, the chat roll is there to ask questions.

We're glad you're here! Best wishes and hope you enjoy your journey at WA meeting and exceeding your goals in life!

Best regards

Hey Simon, welcome to WA and for becoming a Premium Member.

I hope you and your family are safe and well :-)

I am not your official one-to-one coach/referrer here at WA, however, if you need any help or advice, be sure to ask questions along your journey. There are loads of helpful members here, myself included. With such a vast amount of skills & expertise for pretty much any topic or issue that you may have :-)

I published a blog post here containing a suggestion on how to ask questions to receive the best possible answer in the shortest time. Feel free to check this out below: I am also working on putting together an in-depth FAQ series. While I am building this out, feel free to check out this section which contains links to other members FAQ's below: Now that you are a Premium Member, you are possibly considering purchasing your own domain name or transferring an existing one that you already own to WA. When you get to this point, you might find the following tips helpful when it comes to moving your website on the SiteRubix subdomain to your own domain name. I would always encourage you to purchase your domain name through WA, as it comes with numerous benefits compared to other registrars. Another topic that comes up a lot is regarding where to find free images for your website. I have put together a blog post that contains some of these, as well as a workaround on how to get the images from SiteContent into your WordPress website (as you are unable to edit an Article in SiteContent after it has been published, all future updates must be made within your WordPress website), you can find this below: When you come to wanting/needing any comments, likes, shares and feedback for your website(s) and some social media sites, you can find the links in the post below: If you require any supplemental training while you are completing the core training, or once you have completed the core training, you can, of course, find this by using the Search Bar at the top of every page here. I have also categorised my own training for ease of use. You can find this here: Speak soon,
