About the Author

Hi I am Gordon the author of Running an Online Business.com.

My early  professional life was mainly in catering, where I was employed in various roles as a chef, baker, pastry chef and ultimately running my own business in a Deli Cafe.
As the years rolled by I started to think about retirement and what that would hold for me.
I've always had an inquisitive mind and started to take an interest in the internet, which was still fairly new to me.
I started reading about how people were making money from the internet and dabbled in a few programs that promised a lucrative return.
It wasn't until I got stung on the 3rd attempt that I realised (so I thought) that this internet thing was full of crooks and scoundrels.
I then received an Email from someone, I had no idea who they were, but the content of the email intrigued me.
At first I thought, another scammy proposition, until I got to the end and read "This is a free offer, no credit card needed".
In that case I thought, there's  nothing to lose and I would give it a go.

The rest they say, is history.............read on to find out why.

My Mission and How I Want To Help You

I have built this website with the sole purpose of helping people like you create and run their own Online Businesses.
I could quite easily be offering you a "Tutorial" course that costs around $97 to get started and then a few upsells that would probably leave you $300/$400 out of pocket. I promise you that is not what I am about.

I know, I've been there.

Having heard so many stories of people getting their fingers burnt with so called "Get Rich Quick" schemes, that it was only fair that I should share with you a platform that I discovered 4 years ago and have never looked back.
You have obviously landed here because like me you want to  establish an online business, be self-employed and maybe put yourself into a financial situation where you and your family are comfortable in your surroundings and your lifestyle, without being ripped off.
I want to show you that it is possible to earn a very comfortable living within the Online World, if you are willing to dedicate your time and willing to learn the correct procedure for doing so.
To build an online business takes time dedication and a passion for whichever niche you choose. 
Running an Online Business is a passion of mine and it would be a privilege to help you achieve your Online Business goals. 
This is not a website about making a quick buck overnight, it's a website about how to achieve a sustainable income online and getting the most out of life. 
This is about Lifestyle changes you can make regardless of your age or gender.

How I Got Started

I developed an interest in Affiliate Marketing, back in 2014 and wanted to learn all about the pro's and con's of running an online business from home.
As I mentioned earlier I did get my fingers burnt once or twice (Maybe 3 times).
But I'm a believer and knew there was a better way somehow.
I then discovered the company that would be the mentor in my success within the Online World.
It's true I did my homework before deciding to join them, and it was worth the while, I have been with them now for over 4 years.

The Company?   Wealthy Affiliate
I'm confident that you can achieve the same success as I am currently experiencing with this company.
They have been in existence for over 14 years and have helped thousands upon thousands of people just like you and me reach fulfillment in their lives and enjoy a lifestyle that we all deserve. 

Here are some figures that are not meant to impress but to serve as an indication of how Wealthy Affiliate has grown in the 14 years they have been in existence

My 6 months Of Success At Wealthy Affiliate

OK, So I have just received my badge for being premium for 6 months, doesn't time fly when you are having fun?.”
The badge is not really an achievement, but reaching this far is. As a complete novice in the computer world, I knew how to switch it on and ask Google to find stuff but nothing like this whatsoever, I mean I couldn't even spell website let alone create one, but I did. I created 2 of them actually and its all down to Wealthy Affiliate. the training, and the unbelievably patient people here within WA that put up with my constant questions (some of them obvious now I know a bit more)


27 Months with Wealthy Affiliate!

“ Heya.. Wealthy Affiliate friends,

It’s been a while since I blog about my website progress..

I was planning to write a post on 2 year anniversary, but things got delayed and I only have the opportunity to write now."

Where have I been?

I still focus my effort only on one website.. 
And I am still working 1 hour (at most 2) per day to manage my website. 
I didn’t really expect a significant growth, considering how little I work on it.
But to my surprise, everything is still growing nicely.

Here is the break down...

Don't you just hate it when people ask you this.

“ How often do newcomers to WA ask this question:

"So how much do you make?"

"How much have you made in WA?"

Honestly, I find questions like that to be pretty rude. After all, when you're at a party or any get together with strangers, this isn't the type of question you'd ask or probably answer if someone asked you. You'd probably tell them it's none of their business.

But there is another side to this...

People who come to WA do so with the hope and dream of making a living doing this or at the very least just curious to see what they'll learn.”

Our Mistakes of Yesterday Can Be Stepping Stones For Tomorrow

“ This week was a challenging one! My routine was broken when my fiance wanted to put my skills to the test.

He wanted to have a site immediately. He wanted me to promote it on Facebook so he could have some handyman leads. I didn't know if I could build what he wanted in a day.

He had no idea what it took to build something from scratch, but he wanted a product...FAST!!

The hardest part is he wouldn't answer my questions about content. He just wanted a website that would appeal to his audience. ”
