G’day there, this is Wayne from Wealthy Affiliate and welcome to my ‘About Wayne’ page where I’m going to give you a little bit of an insight as to who I am…
Me in my early 30’s getting ready for work
P.S. If you haven’t already guessed, I am an Aussie from the ‘Land Down Under’. To be exact, I live on the beautiful Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.
For the past 25 to 30 years I have been working hard just like all the other millions of working class citizens around the globe. When I left school, I started working in oily, smelly factories. But it didn’t take long for me to give that away, so off to University I went and decided to do what I loved doing most, and that was working with computers. 4-5 years later, I graduated with distinctions in Information Technology, Graphic & Web Design.
During my working years in the office after I obtained my above qualifications, I started dabbling into online marketing believing there has to be an easier way to making money and having some sort of a life for myself. But of course I never really found anything that was legitimate and not a scam. Actually back 15 or more years ago… they were all scams, there wasn’t anything legitimate and I spent endless hours searching, wasting time and money, not to mention… ‘I Had No Experience & No Help’!
But I never gave up and I always knew with the experience I had gained from working in Information Technology, that one day the future would bring ‘Real Money Making Opportunities Online’!
“But I never gave up on continuing my search.”
I did finally find an online marketing group approximately 15 years ago, and I actually turned over a profit of $8,000 AU$. But unfortunately, the company went bust and shut their doors after only being open for 18 months or more.
“I had the taste and I knew it was possible to do.”
Even back then, technology was nowhere near as advanced as it is today, and again I had no support, guidance or help. But I struggled on and learned the ropes the hard way by just sheer persistence and determination, that I could make it work and prove to my friends and family that it was actually possible to make a living online. I still give my mum a hard time about that when I showed her my bank account haha. Before that, she used to tell me I was crazy and what a waste of time it was. Of course, she was old school and you had to work hard for your money in her day, only to die poor and not seen or achieved anything with your life. A thought that always made me feel sad, but even more determined to make sure my life never took that same dreaded path.
15 years later and there has been a lot of changes.
But it was well worth the experience and I’ve traveled to a lot of different countries over the years. My life so far has had a lot of ups and downs, but I’ve been pretty fortunate thus far. I’ve got my health, I have my big boy toys, haha, and I’m now happily married to my beautiful wife who has supported me every step of the way with Wealthy Affiliate. We have even booked our next trip this year to the beautiful Island of Bali.
Yes, it took a long time to reach this point and to finally find something that is not only real and legitimate but has never missed one payment to it’s 850,000 + members since 2005. So if that’s not real enough for you, then I don’t know what is!

This is what I now do in my spare time:
- Traveling with my wife every year.
- Spending time with my family.
- Playing Xbox games (yeah I know, I’m a big kid).
- Stand Up Paddle Boarding on our gorgeous Gold Coast Beaches.
- Bodybuilding in our Home Gym.
- Keeping and breeding reptiles as a hobby.
- Riding our Harley Davidson Motorcycle around the beautiful Hinterlands of the Gold Coast.
- And of course wine and dine my beautiful wife.
So this is my life. And it’s my goal to help you do the same (minus the false pretenses and scams out there).
