About TW2016
Joined March 2016
I'm Terry, nice joining WA and the active community ;)
Just some brief background of myself.

I like travelling, play sport, such as table tennis and soccer, and also engage in Internet business activity (though I'm new in this area).

My background is in finance and after working for 20+ years, I've decided to make a complete change in lifestyle away from the high pressure fast paced environment working for others and always being controlled by time constraints of multiple deadlines.

I like to be an internet entrepreneur and be in control of my own time rather than being controlled by time. This is the reason why I've came to WA to learn about internet marketing and also be engaged with the community.

Internet business appeals to me because it gives me flexibility of time, provides good monetary rewards (based on time spent, commitments, and use of right techniques), and challenges. I like excitement and challenges because it gives me a sense of achievement once you have resolves it.

That's me and a short profile of myself :)

Welcome TW2016:

I want to apologize for taking so long to respond to your email. I have been out of town for 2 weeks; I have a brand new great granddaughter; and my family all went to Portland to visit with her.

I have to agree with you being your own boss, would be very nice; and I know the feeling of feeling like time controls you.

I believe we should do what makes us happy! I am sure you will be successful, you know what you want.

Chat with you soon! And Welcome!

I am stuck right now - I can't seem to find any images for my website that are free. I found one site; but, of course they are charging.

Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you for the follow Terry! It was very interesting to read about you. I have similar goals. I would like to be my own boss and in control of my own time, life and destiny. I feel like I have worked hard to support others with their life and now it is time to turn that energy toward my own personal goals. Thank you for welcoming me and I wish you all the best in your achievements online.

Hi,Terry,

Sorry for the late response. I just now discovered that you are following me.

I hope that you've gotten to the point of making money.

Affiliate marketing is both easy and hard. Not everyone succeeds which is, of course, to be expected. That is because is if everyone can do it well enough then it would be of little or no value, do to too much competition which in turn kills the "well enough".

This doesn't mean that it is over-saturated. So, there is still lots of opportunity for live-able income and some do fantastically.

Learn to fail cheap and fast. This enables one to stay in the game until one succeeds.

So, good luck.

Best

Terry,

Sorry for the belated reply to your follow, this summer as been very busy and had to take care of other issues, like health, rather than the website and Wealthy Affiliate.

It has been awhile since I have been able to spend any time here at WA which is obvious from the lack of content on my websites and non-interaction with other members here, Since I've not posted for. a long time.

Hope you check in on every once in awhile and keep me focused.

Hi tw2016. I'm really enjoying WA. I've completed the first part of my course,lessons 1-9 . I understand theres more. Can I be successful and make money right now? I plan on going premium later i just don't have the funds for it right now. Your advice will be greatly appreciated

Hi Radia, thanks for responding so quickly to the follow request. I'm so glad to be invited as part of your network. Great you completed Course 1. Do proceed to Course 2 as it will teach you more about content writing and Course 3 about social media, etc. You will benefit going to premium by following their course instruction closely. If finance is a constraint, then go on a monthly basis whenever your financial allows. Do not let finances be a burden to you; you can save up first.

Hey Terry,

Just finished reading your blog (Milestone). We are actually at almost the same spot in the training. I'm glad your experience has been a positive one here at WA. I'm looking forward to continued satisfaction with my involvement here.

Perhaps we can talk again soon and maybe provide each other with additional support and direction.

Cheers,
Mark

Thank you so much for taking time to visit and read the blog. That's great we are at the same level of learning, how did you find the tutorials, interesting and easy to apply to your own niche?

Hi Terry, thank you for the follow and I will do the same. Yes totally with you on the part about deadlines, high pressure, fast paced working environment and having no control over our time is a lifestyle we don't wish to be in if there is a choice. And online marketing can allow us to have more time, less stress and freedom. All the best to you.

Hi Terri!

Yep, I know about pressure and deadlines in the financial environment. When I started out in banking and insurance, computers were still science fiction. The old NCR and Burroughs machines were state of the art!

Thanx for the follow and all of the best at WA.

Thank you for the follow.

My reasons for looking into WA are very similar to yours. I was in finance - mortgage- for 18 yrs. I ended up going back to school and am now working in the medical field. I still miss the brain work that was involved in underwriting - but am reluctant to go back into it because of the cyclical nature of the mortgage business.

I'm looking for something more - which is how I ran across WA. After checking BBB, and finding very few complaints about the company, and it has a good rating, I decided to try it.

I have read your blog, and I must say that I know really its not easy, but not impossible! there are certain things that I dont understand so good, and also not a computer expert, but I do my utmost to continue with the lessons. What I do Terry is, When I finish this level 3 course, I go back to the Get Started Course and begin all over again, so I may understand it more clearly. Really need some coaching too! Blessings to you, Lily

Same for me too where I used to have mental blockage on WP settings and its setup; them moment I hear of this "WP settings" my fears came straight right into my mind until when I told myself let's give it ne more try at WA and watch the video clips before I do anything was my first step. econ step was to watch the same video clip again, this time take key notes down and after watching it try and do it yourself on your own niche. If stuck, will play the video clip again where I got stuck and see how it is done. That was how I overcame my fear. It's not easy and takes time, but like you say it was not impossible. It can be overcome if you tell your mind, I will not let fear be a success of my failure. Yes, we can always work together at Level again if you do not mind me working with you together; I will not mind going back level 1 as watching more gets you more detailed and not missed the fine points and also increases your learning curve to make things better. Speak to you again Lily. Rejoice. Terry

Hi Terry, your blog has really motivated me and I'm pretty sure everyone else who has read it. With such a strong motivation I'm very sure you will succeed in your online business.
I also came to WA to get to know more about internet marketing and even though I'm not a premium member I have learnt so much from the WA community.
Without a premium membership is a rather big disadvantage (too bad my parents did not allow me to sign up for it). It has been tough to build up my website using basic tools and sometimes I felt like giving up on it. Your blog has really helped me to get back on track!

Hi Tan, thank you very much for your encouragement and taking time to read the blog. You can always try affiliate marketing at Amazon to promote some products and hopefully get some commission and finance the WA blog here. Will that be a good idea for you? It's good to start early and yo on the right place unlike me where I started late and got scammed several times before stepping onto WA which is awesome. Anything you need help, let me know. Are you from NTU?

Reading your profile have you thought of your travels as a means to a niche. The best choices are the things you love and enjoy. Play sports, table tennis, etc are wonderful areas where people have questions or want to learn to play. Blog it and link to a paying link.

Just my opinion, and wanted to share some thoughts. I once had a small business where I tapped into people skills and work experience. Then I actually taught them how to start a small business of their own. I walked them through the full process from start to finish. They were ready to go! Online that has tremendous possibilities as your niche. Excellent financial return but I'm older now, and changing directions.

You could still travel and write about your experiences! Forgive me but I'm an inventor with an inventive ambitious mind. I am intrigued by the energy of active travelers.
Reply
TW2016 Premium
Yes, I have thought of travels which I love and very passionate about. But in terms of sports, yes I do love but seems I have limited knowledge or may run out of content writing long run.

Perhaps you can guide me from start to finish in terms of travel niche since I have travelled to many countries, be it on business trips or personal holiday pleasure trips.

You're excellent, please throw more ideas, I love such brainstorming and challenging my thoughts very much. Please feed m with more ideas. if you like you can drop me emails at epublishing2016@gmail.com too

Look forward to hear from you.

Hi Terry, Thanks for the follow, will follow you back. I too have been through the finance/banking world for about 20 years but have just had it working for someone else and using up my time for deadlines that makes no sense most of the time. Time to step off the hamster wheel and take on something more exciting. And WA is just the vehicle to get there. Wishing you all the best to success with your online business.

Dear Terry,
Thank you for the follow. I once wanted to go into finance field but realised the industry are full of big player and it is hard to setup your own business, provided you have deep pocket. Therefore, decided to stop entering it. Seeing your comment make me feel I have done the right choice. Internet marketing or Online business really is the way to go for people like you wish to create your own business. Glad to know you here.
Reply
TW2016 Premium
Hi Thomas, No worries :) You're absolutely right, the finance field is very high pressure and fast moving. Having worked as a finance director over 10 years, felt is was more than enough and very burnt out to the extent that docs told me better to change profession otherwise will drop dead on the table one of these days if I continued that way..... I'm now working to be a successful entrepreneur in the internet having achieved success in the corporate world already and now leading half retired life lol ;) Great and good to know you another S'porean, it feels so good to know that there's quite a number of S'porean here too lol. Saw your website, looks great and nice; like it.
