I have been dreaming about having my own online business since 2015 which is when I discovered Wealthy Affiliate.
I am so thankful for the training, mentors and opportunity with WA. I am constantly learning and evolving. I am learning from experts who are in a position that I want to be in. I am working towards those goals.
I worked at a full-time 8 to 5 job during those years and only had the time to work on my website on my lunch breaks which was not a lot of time. In the evenings and on weekends, I was always busy with my son. He is a teenager now and does not need much of my time. I am sure those of you with teenagers can certainly relate.
Now I am in a position to be working on my online business full time. I could not be happier. I am loving my lifestyle and my work! I enjoy every aspect of developing my business online. I would like to help you do the same. Having your own online business is an achievable dream with dedication and perseverance.
I like sharing my story with all of you in hopes that you will find inspiration in it. I am available to help you along your journey if you need it. Please post a comment below if you have any questions or comments about this post or even about your goals for the future.
