I thought that it would be nice to take a moment for a proper introduction on this "About" page...
But before I do that, hope you don't mind me asking:
Do you have a dream? Something that keeps you awake at night?
Something that you want more than anything else in the world?
Because I do - it's what got me here!
So, here I am, at the place I used to work.
Yeah, I spent a long, long time taking orders in a restaurant, translating for the customers who didn't speak English.
When you're good at something, you gotta use it, right? And I've always been good with languages.
As for the moment, I'm fluent in English, Russian, and Greek. Did I mention that I was born in Bulgaria?
Anyhow, don't get me wrong:
The job was fine at the time. It paid the bills and I got to meet tons of fantastic people over the years. But that's beside the point.
Because it's not what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Not even close!
Back to the dream...In my case, is called screenwriting.
There was this moment, around a year ago, when I woke up one day with a single thought in mind:
"I've been a movie addict from ever since I remember myself. Why shouldn't I write pictures instead of just watching them?"
And the madness began...I bought screenwriting books to get familiar with the material...while I was still working the insane 80 hours a week.
Three months later, I jumped in my first screenwriting competition. By all means, I wasn't anywhere near ready for that.
But I just needed to know:
"Can I really do this? Or is it all in my head?"
And I got my answer...I placed in the Top 15...from a total of 4,000 people!
Not bad, huh? And yeah, I guess I'm bragging a bit...
The bottom line is:
From that moment on, there was no force in the world that could stop me from going after what I wanted to do and who I knew I could be!
Have you ever tried to do this too? It's fun, isn't it?
Personally, I thought that I'm invincible. That I'll be able to do them both.
And the plan worked for a few months. Eventually, I learned a simple truth the hard way:
"You don't really feel very creative after a long day of physical work. Day after day, month after month, you can't escape the inevitable - you get tired from trying to run in two opposite directions at the same time.
No matter how hard you try and how many sacrifices you're willing to make."
So something had to change. To become a well-paid screenwriter will take years to accomplish. But I would be damned if I let that go!
That's how I decided to start looking for a way to make a living from home. To earn my money with writing and have the time for my screenwriting education.
Have you been trying to work online? To find the way to make an extra and even more - a full-time income from home?
It goes without saying - I did. You gotta do what you gotta do, right?
I spent such a long time testing one money-making opportunity after another. It's how I got to learn what "scam" and "get-rich-quick scheme" meant. And I was crashed...
Almost saw my dream fading away, without a chance against the harsh reality. The keyword here being "almost".
Because I kept searching. And then searched more and more...
Until I found Wealthy Affiliate.
Honestly, this online platform sounded too good to be true. I checked its testimonials online, spoke with a few of its members. Still not totally convinced, I decided to give it a try.
It's FREE to join, so there was nothing I could possibly lose, right?
Quite frankly, I was so overwhelmed at first!
What the hell did I know about building a website, a whole business of my own?
But I gave it a try, followed the training. It's presented in such a beginner-friendly way!
And the things started to move. Wealthy Affiliate made sure of that.
This platform gave me:
1) Two websites for FREE
2) A world-class education including niche introduction, keywords research, affiliate marketing, driving traffic, etc.
3) 24/7 professional tech support (who possibly can't stand me at this point, I used to bother them that much, lol!)
4) The most welcoming and supportive blogging community
And it goes on and on and on...
Most importantly, Wealthy Affiliate gave my dream a chance to become a reality!
Still having trouble believing it...
Nowadays, I'm an affiliate marketer for a living. There is no more restaurant for me!
I've built this website and I'm making my living with it.
I get to work from home and work when I want. If I want...
And I have the time to learn the craft of screenwriting and write my movies...which was the whole point in the first place!
I get it, trust me, I do!
It's hard to believe that dreams still can come true in the world we live in.
But I know now that they do!
As long as you keep trying and don't give on yourself, you can make anything happen.
If I could, then you can too!
The bottom line is:
If you have a dream or even just wish for a better live and financial freedom, you need to take action.
It's not going to happen on its own, you know!
Don't give up on yourself. I didn't!
P.S. - You are not going to be let on your own devices. I'm going to be there and so are another 2 Million members.
