Getting Started

Have you ever dreamed of what it would be like to take control of your life?


I know I Have, I was self-employed in the Television Industry, but this still required me travelling onto locations or working at a client’s base. I was working long hours; seeing my family rarely and when I finally did get home, through bleary eyes.

I had a dream, I had a picture in my mind of utilising my computer knowledge, this lay at the heart of my dreams. There I sat at my computer earning real money at home, whilst the family is around you. Or even running your business whilst travelling the world with your family. These were my dreams. Are they yours?

The question became how could I successfully run a home business with literally zero capital, and support a wife and two kids. I started that search which would lead to money. Once the quest for that opportunity on the began, the internet felt like the Wild West with scams, dodgy dealing, and expenditure leading to false promises. Then recession hit and I moved into full time employment. My dreams were not entirely forgotten though. In 2010 I looked again for that elusive work from home internet business opportunity, this time using the computer as an “Internet Marketer”.

Sheryl Crow wrote a song “Every Day Is A Winding Road”, this from my perspective is how I felt as the search to make money online fruitlessly continued. I had tried some of these online “business opportunities” money making schemes, only to get my fingers burned. All too often I found scams that were promising more than they could deliver or those “get rich quick scheme” scams asking for “pay now” thousands of dollars for some training or course.Thumbs down

Me Cynical? I had got truly cynical and despairing of the online marketer/ racketer industry. The online home business dream seemed far, far away. As I trawled the internet one Sunday afternoon I found a website called Wealthy Affiliate where I could sign up for free and try the program out. I signed up with Wealthy Affiliate straight away and my confidence grew when I realised this community were serious about helping me create an online business from home with time and practice. For once my dreams could come true.

With my dreams coming true, I am now offering the potential to have yours realized  by showing you how to solve that familiar problem of knowing who to trust on the internet.

So if like me you want to succeed in running an online business from home and not suffer the despair and cynicism I have suffered READ ON.

    Hi Paul,
    As someone who has studied leadership language, I was pleased to read the entire pages of your web site. Your writing style is :
    1) Simple
    2) Direct
    4) Clear

    In short, you communicate well. The small point I would like you to reconsider is your use of “incorporated me”. How about “required me” ? Maybe it’s just me, but the word is jarring because it seems so different from the rest of your message.

    That said, I think you make a convincing case as to why someone would want to listen to your insights about starting an online business. I wish you the best of luck.
