Hello, I’m Peter, one of the many English living in the Dordogne area of France. peter vendangeI have been working for myself for about 35 years now mainly in the holiday rental business and years back I also had a couple of shops.

My days now are made up of grass cutting, gardening, cleaning the swimming pools, a bit of maintenance and some time on the computer.

While the rental business is a nice way to earn a living and bring up children, it does have its drawbacks. The main one being we never have any spare cash.

Online since 2000 for the rental business, I have often considered starting an internet business but never had the courage to take the plunge.

Sure I looked around, found tons of “opportunities” but always afraid of being scammed I never took any real action. That is until I found Wealthy Affiliate!

Yes, like many people, I did try a few online programs that promise easy money but quickly found that these get rich quick programs aren’t the way to start earning online.

When I first joined the Wealthy Affiliate platform, I was amazed at how much information, training, and support that was right there at my fingertips.  I couldn’t begin to tell you everything I learned in a very short time.

Another reason that initially encouraged me to join Wealthy Affiliate was to learn how to build a website with WordPress. They have a very easy to use site builder that makes setting up a website easy for everyone, even for someone with very little computer experience.

If you do have problems the friendly online community goes out of their way to help you and this is very important when you’re building your first website or starting an online business.

I tried it and am delighted!

Within a few days I had a WordPress website online and after a few months, I started to earn an income online.

The purpose of this page is to give you some background information about me and to encourage you if you would truly like to start your own work at home online business.

Feel free to contact me if you ever need anything or leave a comment below.(see my WA profile here)

Here’s to your online success!

Peter
