About TechieFinch
Joined April 2018
Hi! My name is Franklin.

I'm an overseas Filipino working here in Japan.

Since we are not yet permanent here, I'm doing all my best to be able to find additional income for the family. So in case my contract ends, we are ready to go back to our beloved Philippines.

I write about my journey on investing in the stock market and I like to share my learning through blogging.

In addition, I want to make use of blogging to earn and subsidized all the cost to maintain my website. If possible, I want to earn as much as I could so I would be able to experience what they call financial and time freedom.

Hi Franklin. I love to travel and would like to see Japan also. But, I think the Philippines would be more beautiful. Japan is much more crowded I am sure.
I am sure you will find success here at WA; you have a good attitude.

Hello Dottie! Wow, thank you so much for the compliment. :)

Actually, Japan is also a nice place. Crowded in some places during weekends and holidays.

Please visit the Philippines someday especially Cebu, my hometown.

Nice meeting you and it's so kind of you dropping by and leaving some comments. :)

Sorry, I hadn't left a comment on your profile. I'm often speechless and I have difficulty on thinking what to say or comment. I'm an introvert type of person. :)

I'm glad you did so I could start from here. Indeed, it just makes me happy to know that WA has many things to offer and most especially I get to socialize with like minded and very supportive people like you.

Thanks, I wish the same for you Debbie! :)

Hi Franklin. Thanks for following me. The stock market is a very interesting topic and niche. There are so many people searching for ways to make money by investing in the stock market. All the best!

Thanks for your time just to comment on my profile Raynold.
I saw your comment on one blog. I believe you started getting results by being an affiliate of Amazon. I really wanted to do that as well, but I'm still on Phase 2 both on certification and boot camp.
That's why I focus more on Stock Market and promoting WA.
I hope you could send me some tips on private message. :)
Reply
Borneoman Premium
To be honest, there's no secret to making money from Amazon. The Online Entrepreneur Certification training is good enough and also take some time to watch Jay's webinar.

It's better to focus on one project at a time. If you're doing the Boot Camp, just stick with it until you succeed.

Hi and thanks for the follow. I am sure you will find success here. We are all seeking financial freedom, I believe financial freedom is different for everybody. I'd consider myself financially free when I can give up my day job knowing I am earning enough income from my sites to pay my rent, bills and have money over to do the things I love to do. Others see financial freedom as overseas holidays, flash cars and boats and that is fine that is their life and their dreams. So you just have to decide what your financial freedom is going to be and make that your goal. You have a family so I'm guessing it'll include caring and providing for all their needs as well as giving you more time to spend with them.
Take care my friend, enjoy Japan (I've never been) and always make the most of every opportunity :) God Bless

Thanks for leaving a full of wisdom and very touching comment Mary!

I have envisioned finacial freedom to be time freedom, when I can wake up anytime I want and spend more time with my family. :)

I hope to see you often here on WA University!

I am passionate about creating business and love to interact with people. Therefore will be entering into business again and continue to build up my own Online business. Although this approach take longer time to succeed for my Online business, but it keep my cash flow healthy at this moment. Until a stage where I wish to switch off the unwanted tap, then full-time Online business will be my ultimate engine for growth.

Hey Franklin all's well here in Florida.
How is living in Japan like?
Reply
TechieFinch Premium
That's good. I actually have step relatives there from my grand father. :)

It's fine but with limited Japanese, it's quite difficult.
Also, it's stressful to have short term contracts and it's very uncertain how long we will be able to stay here.
Reply
NScholz Premium
I can just imagine how difficult it must be. I spend 4 years in Korea, and one year in Vietnam. I liked being there in both. Never learned either one of their language. Just a few words and sentences. That's about it. People were very friendly on both countries.

Hello Franklin,♫Welcome! I am so pleased you found WA. Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun at WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. And I share all my interesting findings on my blog space. I have listed them on a blog for you. When you type in “Blogs top rated by Loes” into the search bar on top, you'll find my goodies under Training. I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2018. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hi Loes!

I discovered something brilliant.

Sometimes, you see the value of something when you read it more than once.

The path to where you want to be becomes less difficult to access if you go back and forth several times like a small path in a grasslands.

Please correct me if my idea is wrong.

I compared the affiliate link I got from the a WA blog and the affiliate link I see on program details has the same alpha-numeric numbers.

By sharing our beloved WA's blog on Facebook, it appears that anyone can read the first few paragraphs but when they scroll down, the optin box appears to let them sign up to continue reading.

If someone who is really interested of the topic you are sharing, you don't even have to force or convince him to sign up for Wealthy Affiliate. They will do it on their own.

Isn't it just amazing????

So to make it clear, where does the new referral credit goes to, the blog writer or to the one who shared the blog?

I came accross your profile when I was looking for FREE stock images shared by Maddy if I'm not mistaken.

I replied with the something I'm in doubt because I really find it brilliant. Please confirm it. Thanks!

Hi Franklin,

I hope that I will be able to help you and I'm sure that there are things that I will learn from you. I have found that the best learning that I received comes from the questions that people ask.

It gets me thinking and if I don't know the answer then I will do some research and I am always amazed at the wonderful opportunity that I have been given to learn something new just through a question that somebody else asked.

Keep well and much success to you on your online journey.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi Kyle! I really like it here. I think I can go both with the affiliate/promotion of WA and create soon a website to promote about gadgets/home appliances or decors/kids apparel.

BTW, I would appreciate if the auto correct would be available in comments because I sometimes forget correct spellings of words. Hahaha..
Reply
Kyle Premium
Those are all pretty broad categories, I would recommend you narrow them down.

Which one are you most interested in, or passionate about?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)
