    Hi my name is Paul, I have helped others and the community in Brisbane, Australia as a Security Officer for 20 years. If you look up the career progression path and pay increases for my profession it is not pretty. So I have a stable job, I have time to learn and I have a plan to find options to.......Yes make money online. I don't want to be the richest guy on the planet but in 5 to 10 years time I would like an income stream I could work on where ever I am at the time. Until then it's incident reports, lost children, first aid and sexual services for the knobs I work for (jokes). Well I have to ride my kangaroo to work now and slay a croc for dinner on the way. Chat soon and thanks for all the knowledge on here it will take me a life time to learn but because it all changes Quick I might be able to get in on something new and be the expert. TTT. Things Take Time

    Good luck stick to it and you'll make money. It's not easy but the people on here know what their talking about. Knowledge helps you find the door but action lets you open it.

    Yep got it. But knowledge and skills can lower the money it takes right?

    Hey Paul,

    Welcome to BHW!

    It's always fantastic to see someone with a full time job, especially someone who has been doing it for so long, decide to get in on IM.

    I've another friend from Australia - who I helped get setup 3 years ago. He started like you, with virtually no background in IM, a HUGE passion to learn, a method to his madness and basic Internet skills.

    He is now consulting local businesses in Sydney and recently got roped in as a co-founder to a promising startup that just raised it's first round.

    Read up on the forum, decide on how you wish to proceed and then begin your journey.

    If you need help, just ask.

    Welcome aboard man!

    Good to have you here, Paul. Welcome to the forum.

    Thanks mate. Just being humble and trying not to fly before I can crawl. I am not on Facebook but get ideas from here and go look it up. It even took me a while to figure out what IM meant. Lol. Hopefully we will have a laugh over beers someday.
