About ThomasTay
Joined May 2015
I am Thomas Tay from Singapore and wish to start my online business this year. Online business will allow me to use my computer and internet knowledge to start a business with smaller capital and do it myself at first.

Started my free membership on 3rd May 2015 at 11.30pm and upgrade to premium member on 16th June 2015 at 10.30pm. One month later, on 14th July 2015 I decided to upgrade my membership from monthly to yearly in order to enjoy the discount rate.

As I learned about the power of WordPress CMS system, decided to switch my company website from Joomla to WordPress.

...Updated on July 15, 2017...
Life has changed since my company announced on June 5, 2017 that our office will be terminated. It is time for me to speed up my own business setup. The lessons that I have gained from the Wealthy Affiliate community here will help me in my next pursue. I shall update everyone thereafter when I have more time to develop my own business.

Hello Thomas. Thanks for the follow!

That's unfortunately what happens in the corporate world. Employers sometimes just really don't care about anything but the amount of money they can make.

I was in a situation a few years ago when I had injured my arm and could no longer work. They didn't extend my leave because they needed to train people for a new skillset (that would put even more strain than before on my arm).

They told me either that I would lose my job if I didn't come back to work. Naturally, I quit. My health was more important.

But that's why our own business, specially online business, is important. Nobody can kick you out and nobody can terminate the company (unless you breach rules or decide to terminate it yourself). You're your own boss.

I really hope that life has improved for you since then and wish you much success!

Thank you for the blessing. It has been a tough ride for me, especially I am the only person supporting a family of 5 with one special kid at home and my wife is taking care of her full time. 2 daughters still in polytechnics with school fee to pay.
While I am creating my own Online Business, I need to bring food on the table. Thus, I need to get a full-time job and get pay check each month.
However, having own business is still my goal and I will never quit. I am seeing result slowing coming and that prove the teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate work.
May all our determination and efforts lead us to achieve our goal in life.
A big blessing to you too!

Sorry to hear that you've got things so hard on your side, Thomas. And I can understand, supporting your family of 5 and specially a special-need child, is not easy.

For me, I'm married with a full-time job. I'm thankful for my job but I had very bad experience in the past with my other managers. When my arm was injured, I even opened a pet shop with the help of my husband but we had to close up shop early this year and we ended with a ton of debt that we are in the middle of paying right now.

So yea, having a job is just here to pay the bills for now, but the business is definitely the long-term goal. Let's keep working towards making our dreams a reality because nobody else will!

Thomas thanks for the follow I will certainly follow you too!

Y'know, I didn't think I could write, but then I did part of my website and low and behold reviews said I could write! Wha????

Nahhh no way? But as I was reading our site it got me to thinking when you said let the thoughts flow. Seems to me there was no outline to follow as I assume you were saying.

I did just that and people who read my content felt I had it planned but NO that was not true and yes it is true I just let my writing flow with no direction BUT I did have a sense of direction while writing it.

Thanks Thomas, your niche just reaffirmed my actions.

Clearly you made a wise decision to join WA, which has un-paralleledly fulfilled every bits of its promise in training and support more than its competitors - especially not mentioning many online digital scammers. Notably, within WA community, the willing souls and helping hands from its members abound so you do need to worry about getting answers to questions.

Your more than one year adventure under the wings of WA surely have generated an enormous amount of knowledge and experience ready for me to tap.

Without further saying, I would like to invite you to learn each other by looking into my profile in , and see how and what you would and can do to help my digital infant - www.ebettercare.com - to soar into its designated e-marketing sky as soon as possible.

Good Morning Thomas,

That was not good news for you to hear your company was closing down. Luckily you have quite a lot of experience already with the online business type of work. I hope it is going well for you. I see you have been in WA quite awhile but you have not put your website on your profile page below your posts. I had wanted to go there to leave a comment. I always say this to the new people I meet here. In case you need a good source for writing have a look at my WA post on the Spanish priest and the world library, amazing things can be found there.
Thank you for the follow and good luck.

Regards, Taetske

Good day to you Thomas, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I'm following you back. Some people see advantages of a system faster than others, as I also joined the yearly plan. My yearly anniversary is Black Friday (Thanksgiving), which happens to be the best deal WA has to offer.
I am happy for you to have already started getting yourself prepared for your inevitable departure and I wish you much success in your new adventure. Something to think about, "Today I will do what others won't, so tomorrow I can accomplish what others can't."
- Jerry Rice, football player
I look forward to working with you and wish you much success.

Hi, Thomas.
Paul Mindra here from Ontario, Canada.

Thank you for inviting me to be a part of your network. I graciously accept by following you back.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate University.

Great and 'smart' move on going 'Yearly.' I am in my second year here and have no intentions of leaving. An education like this for less than $400 per year...I get it.

Someone with your already well established background may get bored here, but I do not think so.

Too much to learn, absorb and incorporate.

I look forward to learning, sharing and serving with you as we all move forward here. Hit me up at any time.

I am very pleased to make your acquaintance.

Kindest Regards,

Paul.

There is a famous quote from Mark Twain:

"If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first."

And that just means - do your hardest task first or at least as soon as you can in the morning. If you do this then the rest of your day is easy from there!

ANYWAY…

Hello, thanks for the follow and welcome to WA. You are definitely in the right place!

People have plenty to share and there is plenty to learn also so take your time and enjoy the experience.

I may not be in the top 200 list anymore (because I don’t socialize here much) but I do have many interesting posts on my site and some you might really like, many people do. I have over 3,000 positive comments, so take a look and get some ideas as to what you can do with your site.

Let me know if I can help you in any way

Cheers Peter :)

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.
