Hi Wealthy Affiliates. My name is Mel and I'm very happy to be here.
I've been wondering for a long time how to use the internet to make an income. I'm very pleased to have found this site.
My goal is to be able to produce a well-designed site that will ultimately become a full-time business.
I am currently living in Turkey in a beautiful coastal town on the Agean. Apart from learning internet marketing, I am also learning Turkish and take an annual break to teach English at summer school in the UK.
Past life experiences include living in Manhattan and Singapore, and I was a graphic artist in the age of PMT cameras and real cut and paste. (That probably dates me!) . I was half way through my degree in Art and Sculpture when I fractured my elbow, and veered into the career of EFL which led me to where I am today. I think my life motto is Tell God your plans, and She'll have a good laugh.
Other interests include making friends here on the peninsula, art and photography, and by default (being married to a yacht captain) sailing. Living in a different culture from my own has challenged my perspective on the world and realise without the power of spoken language, the world becomes very small indeed. Ironically, I finished my degree: Visual Arts and Communication.
Things have changed so much from those cut'n' paste days, that I've become a non stop learner by nature, and am enjoying making new friends here at WA.
