About YourBizTips
Joined May 2017
Hi and thanks for visiting my profile. My name is John. I am presently retired in the south of France with my wife Kate. I am French and Kate is English.

In 2001 we were drowned in credit card debts and loans, no jobs and no qualifications to back me in my search for a job. As I have hardly been to school I developed a strong thirst for knowledge and became totally self-taught early on in life.

As the Internet became available to everyone I thought that it would be an excellent tool for gaining skills and perhaps earning a living off it, then it became my passion.

Since then, I have done just about everything that is legally possible online, sometimes made a lot of money, lost a lot too, and picked myself up more times than I can think of.

But hey, as Thomas A. Edison said: "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work."... don't worry, you don't have to fail that many times in order to succeed, we are talking about Wealthy Affiliate here, where people who are willing to do something with their life, do succeed!

I have become an expert in social media marketing and I am running several very profitable online businesses. I came across Wealthy Affiliate as I wanted to add other streams of income to my portfolio and what convinced me to join and upgrade immediately was that I have created many, many websites and blogs in the past but they never have been very profitable and I found out that at WA I could find the missing link. I read a lot of positive reviews about WA, so I decided to join to see for myself, and here I am... "Happy As Larry", with a new business that is progressing magnificently well month after month, earning me already much more than I had anticipated.

Kate and myself have been lucky enough to have traveled the world from North to South and East to West, and vice versa many times, as we have nearly never had a boss.

I was born in Vietnam of French parents, Kate was born in the UK. We met and got married in Lesotho (southern Africa). I/we lived in Liberia, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Lesotho, South Africa (farm owners), England (house/pet sitting), The Channel Islands (house/pet sitting), Florida, South America, Australia (house/pet sitting), where we often go back because we have children and grandchildren there, Tasmania (house/pet sitting), New Zealand, Italy, Spain (house/pet sitting), Malta, then finally France my home country, where I practically never lived till I retired at age 65, and I am not listing the countries we are visiting while house/pet sitting worldwide, or while Kate was lecturing and teaching bead work on the QE2 cruise liner, which took us from Fort Lauderdale (Florida) through the Panama Canal and all along the west coast of South America down to Chili, or along the west coast of Africa down to Capetown, then to Mauritius.

We are International house and pet sitters which enables us to travel the world, Where We Want, When We Want, and in Luxury as we do chose only high standard country properties. We form a perfect team, Kate takes care of the bookings (and makes sure that we have the best) and I, with my laptop, provide the income. This is FREEDOM at its best! As Kate likes to say: "We are the most upmarket Gypsies in the world." We are members of a "House and Pets Sitters" organisation which you can find (and join) through the first link on side column, under "Follow Me On". Kate is also a published writer, her books are available on Amazon Kindle (look for Kate Fagalde).

So, yes, if you are interested in this sort of lifestyle, or if you are a stay at home mom, a disabled person, jobless, etc., all you have to do, if you are not yet a member at Wealthy Affiliate, is to click on the greenish "JOIN NOW!" button at the top right of this page. It is 100% FREE to join, learn and earn. Then I will be more than happy to mentor you (also for free).

If you are already a member and don't know who is the person who referred you, or can't get hold of them, no problem, we are thousands of experienced marketers here who are ready to help you to succeed, just shout for help, or contact me direct.

John

Hello John ... thank you for the follow. Your profile above just adds to your amazing story I just read on your Never Ever Give Up post.

I'm very uncomfortable on social media (especially Fb). I used to think it was generational thing, but you and I might be from the same generation, so there goes that theory.

Any way I wish you the best and hope you find WA useful enough to hang around.

Thanks for your message Dennis. We are never too old to learn, I have never stopped learning, I love learning. My wife often asks me (she has given up now): "why don't you read a novel instead of those technical or how-to books? or watch a movie?", I just can't, I've got to learn something. So if you get yourself into it, you will learn how social networks work. Let me know if you need a hand. In fact, I should really start to post tips here. I will as soon as I am finished with the training which will be very soon.

I look forward to seeing you around and reading your success stories while watching you progress here at WA.

Love that story and so glad you have had a wonderful life. I am now 55 and my wife is 63, I have cancer and feel as though I am on a far more urgent timeline. I want to take a cruise with my wife and would love to take as many of my 16 grandchildren as possible to Disney World. I hope that before I leave this world I can do at least a 6 month RV tour across America, I used to want to go to the Holy Land, Spain, the UK, Germany, and possibly Australia, however, with all the goings on in the world most of that travel is now a lost dream, but thanks to the internet I can still see as much of the world as I would like.

Yours in Christ,

Art Klemme
