Well... Let me start by telling you where I am from because probably not many people (probably none) join such a community from where I'm from.
I am from Ethiopia and I live in Ethiopia. I studied marine engineering and had worked on board merchant ships for some time. After I quit the sea I was working at the offices of the national carrier, again, for some time.
I've always been looking for something to do that would make me happy. In other words, I wanted to love what I do for a living. This never happened with the jobs I had and, a quite a few years ago, when I got a chance for some network marketing business, I jumped in. To make long story short, that never worked too.
It was at this time that I realized the best platform for me could be an online business. Researching some more, I was convinced (and still convinced) that online is my way. I tried a few businesses, which could be done from where I'm from, for a few years and none of them got off the ground and I hate to say I quit.
I have however never quit looking at opportunities that come my way now and then. I now own my own offline business but still has that strong desire to go online. That's the reason I joined WA to see I would be able to be successful here and help others do this.
