About TigerLeo
Joined November 2013
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.
TigerLeo's Goals 3
Money Goals
Q I would be happy with 1500 USD a month. This would cover living expenses. If I could do this within 6 months to a year, well that would be terrific.

Q2. Doubling that would make me ecstatic, but dreaming BIG, making 50,000 a year would be truly incredible.

Q3 Time. At present, I don't have a day job, so time doesn't appear to be a problem. What I am finding difficult is organising that time constructively. I have to change my mindset and make myself sit down at the computer to WORK, and not be distracted by the housework/my partner/ TV/surfing etc... I have marked in my diary 2-3 hours a day on weekday mornings . (More if I'm on a roll.)

The other unexpected hurdle is actually communicating on line, like this. It's so easy on FB when commenting on people you know. Saying something to get yourself across to people all over the world you have never, or are unlikely to meet in person, is another challenge requiring self-discipline and practise.

Hey, I just wanted to check in and see if had a chance to start exploring Wealthy Affiliate. I know that when I first joined WA I got serious information overload. I didn't really know where to get started or what exactly I was meant to be doing.

If you haven't started the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course - that's a good place to start. It'll take you through the whole process of what online marketing is, and how to build a successful website. Click the green"Get Started Here" button on the left.

If you're seriously lost or need help with ANYTHING, drop me a message on my profile or ask someone in chat :) Live chat is an awesome tool and there's usually someone that can solve your problem right away!

Hi Nathaniell, nice to meet you.

You are right, the information can be overwhelming.
I didnt get stuck in right away this week. I actually spent some time considering my feelings about this. One was a fear of being scammed, the other was doubting my ability to stick at it. The third was a fear of actually producing something and putting it 'OUT THERE'. My background was in graphic design for print, (80s and 90s) and now EFL. These are pretty safe places to be. The internet is a different beast, live and interactive.

However, these issues looked at and with time to study, I feel this venture is worth while. So I read all your emails in one night and I signed up to Premium today, and I'll just take it step by step.

You offer great advice and support and most of all honest encouragement. Yes I've seen those get rich quick schemes too, and I think you and those at WA are honest and upfront. The way you guys speak and write is friendly and open.

My next task is to get on with the level 1 course, as I'm bewildered as to what niche to follow and I have a problem focussing on one thing at a time!

Many thanks for your interest and encouragement.

Talk again soon :-)
