December, 2013.
Hi and welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate University. My name is Janelle, but that username was taken so I chose Whitsunday, my favorite Australian Island paradise.
I live a nomadic lifestyle. Just me, my husband, my dog, my yacht, my laptop and my...no that's it!
I was lucky to find a way to earn an income that is as mobile as we are. My husband is a professional ship's Captain, so we move around a lot.
We have spent the majority of these last few years on the ocean... sailing, fishing, swimming...you know!

The internet allows me to be away, to be in touch, to learn
and now to earn as well. I am so relieved to have found Wealthy Affiliate.

Back in the day, I studied journalism and freelance photography, long before internet and digital cameras. Even back then I was endeavouring (with mild success) to earn an income from writing for magazines and newspapers. I guess you can call it a passion.
It is so much easier now and infinitely cheaper to jump online, do a course like WA and build a business. I am an artistic gal and the website creation I do here is expressive and contemporary, just how I like it.

2016 UPDATE
Hey, I've been a member of WA for over two years now. I have never experienced a steeper learning curve in my life! It is the most satisfying work I have ever done.

We have changed location many times since I started at WA , giving me a chance to test if I really can run an online business from anywhere I choose.
The biggest difficulty is reliable internet connection. Even close to cities, if there are big rock cliffs in the way, I'm stumped. If you know of an affordable satellite server please drop me a line.
I have not reached a full time income solely from my websites yet. We have a couple of other income streams to supplement my earnings.

When the system's down, I take a break and really enjoy my surrounds. It's the kind of flexibility in my work life that I have been chasing for years. But it really does slow my progress. I would prefer to work a lot more hours than I am.
Another point I have to mention is about the WA community here. These guys rock! Nothing else online compares to the quality of acceptance and support that the WA mob gives out. Thanks.
To see some of my work since I've been at WA just click on The Cashed Up
Nomad link ( in blue to the right of the screen.) And if there is something in particular you want to know about my work, please drop your question in the comment box.

If you are still searching for a way to make a living outside the normal constraints of employment...you are at your destination. Welcome and good luck.

Go really well, from Janelle.

Those are wonderful goals Janelle and I can tell you firsthand that these are more than achievable. When I started out I had very similar goals and with some hard work and dedication, I exceeded any goals that I could have ever initially set.

You will get there if you invest some hard work and dedication to this, I don't have any doubt. :)

Hi Janette and thanks for the follow, which I have returned!

It is good to see that this work, as I too like to travel and see new places, but the exconomy is an issue when you retire...

I hope to get some pointers from you in the coming months so I too can be successful like you! If you want a good laugh see the last post on my WA blog: "I am no 1 on the first page of Google ..I think"

Cheers
