About Steviec92
Joined March 2017
Hi there!

I'm Stephen and I live in Glasgow, Scotland but am originally from the Highlands.

I'm a maths teacher.

My passions in life are hiking, exploring, travelling and educating others. I'm also getting pretty mad into photography. These are literally the only things I want to do so I'm here on WA to try and make a living by doing the things that I love.

I also thoroughly enjoy reading maps, learning about the world and universe, philosophy, reading, watching films, and watching football (Manchester United).

My ultimate goal is to be my own boss and use my passions to make this happen.

I don't believe in "work", to me this implies doing something for the sole purpose of money and survival, not necessarily what you enjoy doing.

Thanks for dropping by!

Hey Stevie,

nice to meet you here and to read about your success. I am a qualified Math teacher as well, although I am currently not very involved in teaching Math, because I am the principal of the school. But I love teaching Math!

Looking forward to hear more from you!

Hi Stephen,
I agree wholeheartedly with you. I did portrait photography for nearly 40 years and seldom did it feel like work. Since retiring, I have had some jobs that were definitely WORK, but there were always aspects of them that gave me satisfaction. I'm back to wanting to do something that I love again, collecting some money for it, and making new friends. So far I'm writing and meeting new friends, so two out of three isn't bad. BTW, you watch soccer, I watch football {:-)

Hello, Stephen, and thanks for your follow. We are following you back.
Oh my gosh we love the Highlands!!! We adore Scotland! We have been there several times whilst still living in the UK. We used to go diving in Oban which we enjoyed so much. Isle of Skye, it's all wonderful. We also love haggis.
We love the global community here and we know we have all the tools and training to succeed.
So much better being your own boss, right?
We are wishing you every success on this journey.

Hi Steve, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend. Sorry about the delay in responding but I am a bit slow at the moment. Trying to do too many things at once.

I just left a comment on your website. I must add I love Scotland. I am in Tasmania and I find a lot of similarities between these two places.

If you have time I would love it if you visited my website and left a comment on a post, any one will do. The site address is fantasy-sci-fi-vision.com

Keep working hard, having fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Ciao
Helen

Stephen, I like your last sentence. "If you're not failing, your goals aren't big enough". It's very inspiring. By the way, I share the same goal of not wanting to work for anyone else. That drove me to research into passive income options and I was finally led to WA.

Great quote Stephen from Scotland.

There is great value in work if you think of it as a service to others. (my perspective) But you can serve and help others with the things you love to do. Someone once said to build a career in the things that you love and you will never have to work a day in your life. I believe it to be true.

Best wishes to you for continuing growth and success.

Kind regards,

Carl

Hello Stephen ... thank you for the follow. Your feelings about working 9 to 5 for someone else sure seem more common than they were in my generation.

I think it's a paradigm shift from the way I was raised ... get a good education, get a good job, contribute and work hard, be a loyal employee, and rest will take care of itself.

I wish you the best in achieving your goals. You are in the best place you can be to help make that happen.

Hi Stephen, really good to meet you. I got to see a small bit of your beautiful countryside when I was living in Ireland - we drove to Edinburgh, up to St. Andrews and then back down again to catch the ferry across. We loved our stay there. Very warm friendly people.

Thanks for following me. I will gladly follow you back and look forward to hearing about your hiking, exploring and travels while running your biz from your laptop.

Hi Stephen
Thank you for including me in your circle of friends here at WA. It's lovely to meet you. The closest I've been to the Highlands of Scotland was on a train traveling through part of it (or perhaps it was only a distant view). But it looked stunning through the train window. I was on a holiday to the UK and spent 3 days in Scotland. Not long enough. Wishing you much success with your adventure with us.

I certainly will go back one day. I'll make sure this time I spend longer there. We have some pretty nice scenery here too, very different to yours, so definitely worth a trip one day! I'm in what they call the Hinterland, it's where the mountains meet the beach. Not that I'm all that close to the beach. It's about a 15-20 minute drive, but I am closer to the mountainous areas.

Good day to you Stephen, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I'm following you back.
WA offers training to get you earning an income. The amount of income is dependent on the time and commitment you devote to your online presence. For example, I am approaching retirement age and soon I will be needing to earn a substantial amount of income online. I have started building my base that will take care of me and my family in the years ahead. The more I get done now, the sooner I will have a new career.
I look forward to working with you and wish you much success in your online journey.

Hello Stephen,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network. Interesting profile!

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

Hi Steve! Thanks a lot for your message. I'm already started with the lessons and am about to start the 'build a website' section. Before that I need to determine my niche. I'm pretty focused on travel but want to specify it more (obviously travel is a huge industry). I was thinking budget travel in Latin America and easy ways to get started (focusing on taking a TEFL certificate and doing a teaching intern which gives you a base when you arrive). This is what I did and since getting started I've loved every second of travelling through Latin America and doing it on the cheap while having a blast. What do you think about this niche? Would is be okay or should I specify more?

Thanks!

Hey Stephen and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 7 years ago. I was looking to learn how to supplement my income through Internet Marketing and what I've found was so much more.

By 2010, I was working full-time from home. These days, ALL of my income comes from my ventures online. In fact, my wife just recently quit her job to start her own business as well. Internet Marketing and Wealthy Affiliate have provided us with amazing opportunities (we've bought a house, get to travel the world, and best of all, no longer spend time "going to work") and I'm incredibly thankful to the training, tools, and support here that made it all possible. :)

I'd love for you to see the same level of success. So, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

To get started, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself. If there's anything I can do for you Stephen, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve
