Hello world, my name is Kerry Bramham and I live in Sydney Australia.
I have worked online for nearly 4 years now – let me explain how that came about. For 7 years prior to this, I worked in a call centre at the local Air Force Base. I actually didn’t mind this job but I realized that staying in this job was not a very good retirement plan for me as l would find myself retiring with very little super and all l would have to look forward to would be poverty in my old age.
This is when l made the huge decision to quit my job and see if l could earn an income on the internet that would allow me to retire in a more comfortable fashion. This became my How To Retire Early plan. The way l figured it, l should be way better off in 10 years (when l would be due to retire) than trying to survive on my measly Super payout. Luckily for me, my partner Steve supports my plan totally which is great because this would be a lot harder without his support.
The Last 4 Years…
During the last 4 years I have learned a lot. It has certainly been an interesting journey with many highs and lows along the way, a few successes and of course, a few losses. The main thing I have learned is that if you want to make money online on the internet it actually takes dedication and hard work. I have worked hard and have learned many new skills:- I can create Facebook Fan Pages and You Tube Channels, I have also learned about marketing on LinkedIn, Instagram and Pinterest, just to name a few.
I also studied at TAFE (Technical and Further Education) for 18 months learning Web Design and Digital Media. I really enjoyed the digital media side of the course, photoshop, flash, illustrator and story boarding etc, but I found the HTML a little bit hard going. I couldn’t be happier now that I have learned to build websites easily through my association with Wealthy Affiliate. I am loving this program and believe I have finally found the true formula for creating a successful career on the internet by following those that are already doing so. The level of training and support at Wealthy Affiliate is simply amazing.
My Other Interests
This is our Beagle dog, Xena. She is 3 years old and as you can see, she is beautiful! She is our baby and is very spoiled, and we love her dearly. She loves having me home with her, sometimes I think she thinks that I’m just home for her amusement and she can drive me crazy but she is worth it. I try to take her for a walk a few times a week, which is great for her and also good for me as it gets me out for a while in the fresh air.
I am a big fan of all animals actually, and find nature totally fascinating. It amazes me that there are so many creatures on this earth and they are all unique in their habits and instincts.
Another passion of mine is Photoshop, I can lose myself for hours when I’m playing with photo’s. This has helped me in my work too but basically I just really enjoy it.
I love to travel and have now visited quite a few countries, including:- New Zealand (twice), England, Ireland, Northern Ireland (my Dad’s birth place), Scotland, Wales, Holland, Singapore, Fiji, Thailand (twice), America, The Bahamas, Canada and our latest trip was to Bali. They have all been great adventures but the best adventure for me was living in Dublin, Ireland for 6 months. I met some really lovely people and had lots of fun. If there is one thing Irish people know how to do, it’s to have fun. Our next trip will be to Fiji in December, for a family wedding.

hi Kerry. are you in iGrow?
Yes, I actually am. It looks like there’s some great new stuff coming up for them.
Why do you ask? Are you with iGrow too?
I am 81 retired living near Penrith. I have two grown up daughters and an ex-wife. I was a member of Wealthy Affiliate but I found it too hard and left them. I agree they are a very honest association and as my former work involved looking after the hardware side of computers I probably should have been OK at WA but I just gave up I suppose. I certainly would like to make some extra money as living on the age pension is no fun. Knowing a knowledgeable person like you may give me a further incentive. I don’t really have a hobby but I love trowling the internet. What do you think. Is there any hope for me? I have some domains registered that are not really doing anything.
I am so sorry I missed your message. Wealthy Affiliate can be a little hard going but I think it is worth it in the end.
There are many things you can do on the internet to make money but you do need to be careful and make sure you do some research before signing up for anything.
I am sending a private message to your email address.
