I am 60 years old young man. As a retired scientist, I was looking for a way of making some money to overcome my family economic problems. I was a part time associate as a chemical consultant in one project Management Company. The director asked me whether I knew anything about computers. I had absolutely no knowledge of computer and how it works. The secretary working in this company gave me basic idea about how PC works. Without any formal knowledge about PC and internet, I started my internet marketing/business journey. I had a dial up internet connection which worked at the speed of bullock cart speed.
Initially I paid $60 in Indian Rupees to an Indian firm for providing me work at home.I was promptly cheated. I vowed never to buy anything on internet unless I can find out my own way of making money on internet. Initially I was aimlessly surfing on internet.I was reading anything and everything. There was lot many terms/words which I never understood. But I simply kept on reading. Then I came across Travis sago.
Frankly speaking I did not understand the meaning of the word "Bum" fully at that time! But the most important thing had happened in my life. I was introduced to warrior forum by Travis sago. I will remain indebted to him for this simple advice. Warrior forum taught me everything that I needed. For nearly two months I was reading all the forum everyday. Everything was free. I was shy. I did not participate in forum discussions much. But the knowledge that I gained was tremendous.
I had to make money fast. I was retired scientist and could handle research of any kind. I had published books in my native language and so my writing skill was well established. I decided to do the ghostwriting work. There was lot many problems before me.
My English grammar was OK. But it was certainly not perfect. I did not understand many slang words at all. So my first thread in warrior forum was "what is the meaning of lol?" There were so many kind hearted warriors ready to help me! One of them guided me to free slang directory also! My confidence level increased tremendously. I was sure that in case of difficulty, there would be lot many warriors to help me out.
Thus started my roller coaster ghostwriting career. I was ghostwriting like a mad person for last one and half years. I wrote more than 2000 articles on more than 70 different topics. I was learning lot many things. I knew that Indian writers were supposed to be weak in grammar, poor in research work and unprofessional. My philosophy was simple. I was ready to do as much research work as was required. Whenever I was given suggestions, I accepted them humbly with thanks and improved my writing skills accordingly. I was completely professional. There were circumstances beyond my control which many times forced delayed deliveries of articles. In spite of all these difficulties my career did flourish.
The money generated helped me tremendously to overcome all my financial problems. One of my clients told me to write on forex. I studied it so deeply, that now I have separate money income stream of forex. I have also diversified in affiliate marketing. I still do ghostwriting. But that I do for building new and lasting relationships.
Moral of the story?
Simple, if 60 years young man from a third world country with so called poor knowledge of English, can convert himself into a professional ghostwriter then you can also become a ghostwriter!
No! This is not the case. You need a special skill for becoming a ghostwriter and not everybody can do it. But if you do have writing skill and willingness to do quality research, then third world country tag should not deter you from achieving success.
Warrior forum is the best place for the newbie to learn about anything and everything regarding internet business completely free of charge.
Today I am economically well settled and the credit goes to warrior forum and all the inspiring posts of lot many warriors.
Thank you everybody.
Thanks a lot.
