About Chris

Hey everyone, my name is Chris and I am absolutely passionate (and I love) working from home. I really appreciate you taking a moment to get to know me a little better. About ChrisI am an Online Marketer and I am originally from the UK. However, after achieving the financial success I needed, I decided to relocate to a favorite holiday destination of mine over the years, which is Rhodes in Greece!

My Story

Believe it or not, I was not always well-off. I did not always have cash on the hip and I went through some damn hard times. Losing jobs, selling houses and getting divorced have all been on my agenda of things to deal with in the past, and I guess I just came to the point in my life where I’d had enough!

I actually served as a Firefighter back in the day, and after cutbacks, problems and hurdles (which I will not bore you with here) that I needed to overcome were finally dealt with, I was pretty much left with nothing. Actually, it was nothing.

So what do you do in this situation? Do you let life swallow you up and spit you out, or do you get off your ass and try again?

A Change Of Circumstances

Finally, at the age of 43, I found myself living once more with my parents. A pretty embarrassing dilemma to be in after being a Firefighter don’t you think? I was hacked off to say the least and my parents were not too happy either.

I decided one day to visit my Grandfather, and as I was hitting the road (on foot of course, I could not afford a car) I was surprised to bump into someone I knew from School. Robert is his name, and I am still good friends with him today!

He is the kind of guy that always got picked on in school. I guess he was the school nerd. He did not have many friends, spent all his time studying, did not try a cigarette and was home every night right on time! You know the type right?

Well, lets just say he was in a better life position than most people I knew. He had a beautiful home, a great car, lovely wife and 3 children. The one thing I noticed the most though, is he was happy. He had no troubles and he had the love, care and finances in his life for him not to have sleepless nights.

Of course the question comes out when you have not seen someone for a while does’t it? I asked him what he was up to in regard to his work. I guess I was just being polite, I don’t know.

I was surprised when he told me he did not have a job. Not as such anyway!

Of course my mind was wondering how he could afford his beautiful home and car as well as supporting a family. He simply told me he worked for himself.

Turns out, all that nerd action in school and all that studying payed off, while I was more popular, yet at the same time slowly flushing my life down the toilet.

He was (and still is) an Online Marketer. Basically, he builds websites and helped others do the same and taught people how to leverage markets and opportunities while putting a nice slice of the profits into his own pockets.

Of course, I had my reaction. “What a load of crap” I told him, “it sounds boring”. I did not believe any of it for a second. He laughed of course, then asked me if I needed a lift to where I was going. Yeah, he had the car and I didn’t.

So Why Am I Telling You All This?

It is important to understand, that just because you do not see the positive in something, it does not make it bullshit!

This guy was doing really well for himself, and I was not. Yet here I was judging him? Strange that he was not judging me for being out of work and not having a pot to pee in right?

I actually became very acquainted with Robert over the few weeks to follow, and slowly he opened my eyes to the success he was having. He did not need to talk, his actions were clear enough.

Naturally as a month or two passed, he had my attention. I could see the success he was having and I definitely wanted to be a part of it. But how?

Make An Effort

The one thing for sure, is that nobody in life will come knocking on your door offering you an opportunity! If you want something, you have to go and get it. This was his message to me. He told me to stop being negative and hacked off at the world because things had all gone wrong for me. If you want change, you have to make it happen.

‘So, how do I do what you are doing?’ I asked him.

From there, he took me step by step through his daily activities and introduced me to the online Wealthy Affiliate University where he did all of his studying. I have never looked back. Do not get me wrong, this did not happen fast, but after a few months I found a had an income. A little more time passed and I understood I did not need to go and find a job. 4 years later, I have now bought a house and live on the island of Rhodes in Greece.

Your Choice

Listen, I am not here to brag. If you want to also call this “a load of crap” then you are welcome to do so. The point is, I have followed in his footsteps and built this business website (just like Robert had done) that generates a living for me.

If you are looking for an opportunity to do something for your ‘lack of finances” then I will help you, just like my friend helped me!

My goal is to help people that have tasted the nasty side of life. Just get off your ass like I did, and do something about it.

  1. My own story is not that far different from your success story and I can attest that as a Top 200 member of Wealthy Affiliate this program will change your life if you take it serious and complete ALL of the training. Wealthy Affiliate has certainly  changed my life and I will remain a premium member for many years to come. This is a great post and very true!

    • Hey John, nice to see you here!

      Yes Wealthy Affiliate is definitely the platform to go to is you are serious. If you are playing games then it will not work. I am happy my friend introduced me into this wonderful community and i have not looked back!



  2. Hi, 

    Thank you very much for sharing with us such an important blog. If I did not read this blog I could not find the details about your lifestyle. 

    This site will be very helpful to those who want to grow their life seriously. The most important thing I just learned from here is one thing for sure, and that is nobody in life can come knocking on our door offering us an opportunity, but If we want something, we have to go and get it. I will definitely share this blog with my friends.

    • Thank you very much for reading.

      Yes it is not all that often opportunities are presented to us that can change the direction of our lives. Some choose to take these chances and others find it easy to snub them,

      The one thing in life is absolutely sure, if you are not willing to do something for yourself, then it can be sure as hell that nobody is going to do it for you.

      Thanks again!


  3. Great article there. Wealthy Affiliate is a great place to learn and be successful at the same time.

    I am a living witness of Wealthy Affiliate. It turn my life around and am always thankful for the opportunity it gave me to become a better person in the society. 

    I did not have experience about affiliate marketing before. But with time and a great community that is always ready to help I started making my own steady income.

    • Hey there and thanks for sharing your personal journey too.

      With the correct training it is not impossible to do something of your own online. If you are committed to achieving something and you are willing to work hard and make the effort, then things will start to happen.

      Like you, having no knowledge of affiliate marketing before, has stepped up and learned what was needed.

      Well done to you, and see you back on the inside.

      Thanks for stopping by.


  4. Hi Chris, you have such an amazing story and i am so happy for you that you actually pulled through. Looking back now i have been in similar situations where i have come across people that i could have benefited from but unluckily for me, i looked down on them. 

    I have realised my mistake and although i regret it, i learned to move on. I am so happy you took the opportunity presented to you. What is your username on Wealthy Affiliate? I would like to follow you because I am still new here and i will need help from time to time. 


    • Hi Aweda, really nice to hear from you.

      There are millions of members so I guess it is like trying to find a needle in a haystack when it comes to searching me out. I have kept my profile straight forward though, so just search ‘Chris Towers’ and you will find me 🙂



  5. Good Chris!I Understand perfectly where you come from. As you said, I think everyone has gone through a tough situation that shook us at some point. Most importantly, as you have said, it is to keep our minds open and embrace the change. Another point is that if we do not work, no one else will do it for us.

    • Exactly mt friend. Why should someone come along and do something or us when we are not willing to do it ourselves? 

      My friend helped me get started, but he did not do the work for me. When chances come along you need to be prepared to put everything into them. if you do not, then you will simply regret it later.

      Nice to hear from you, thanks for passing by!


  6. Hello Chris,

    I would like to share that I am also interested in working in Online Marketing. I read your full description. I am feeling pampered after reading your humble description. You encouraged me a lot. 

    I am going to contact with you as soon as possible. Also, I am going to share your website with my friends and family members.

    Wish you to go long.


  7. Nice to be on your blog Chris, I quite enjoyed your story. Sounds like we have got things in common and that’s unique. I will bookmark your site and hope to read about more interesting posts like this. 

    I think you are doing a great job generally of being visible on the blogging space, your work is amazing and helpful. 

  8. Hi Chris,

    Thank you for sharing this great post. I loved reading your article. I think you’re having success because today’s a successful online marketplace. 

    I’m bookmarking your article so that I can see it again in the future. If I want to write my story as you do, do you have any objection? 

    I’m going to share your Cash On Your Hip article with my friends.

  9. Hi,

    i have had a look around and enjoyed your About Page, such an interesting story.

    Can you tell me something more about the Wealthy Affiliate Site? Do you have anymore information that could help me as I am looking to make money online?

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful article with us.

  10. That is quite the story! Thank you for sharing.  Your story inspires me that I can succeed with WA. 

    A former firefighter, jock in school, losing jobs, divorce to joining and retiring working online by using what you learned in WA, helps me to believe that I can do this to.  I can be where you are.  

    I can kind of relate to your story.  My good friend from school.  Very nerdy, book worm, super smart, I used to call him the walking encyclopedia.  Failed at a lot of things including jobs.  I always made more money then him.  I’m popular with the ladies and he is not.  I always was the one that was looked up to because I made more money and had lots of fun.  

    But now he is doing business online and is retired.  While I still work and still popular with the ladies but have yet to retire.  I have built a website about the NBA but have yet to cash in.  Now I want to promote WA, do you have advice for me?

    • It goes to show that if you put the effort in you can go in the direction you want to go in life.

      For more information on the training I have done, come and see my Wealthy Affiliate University review. It will give you the rundown on what it is all about, and of course if you have any questions feel free to leave them for me and I will get right back to you!

      Thanks isaac, nice to hear from you.

  11. Hi Chris,

    Thank you for writing about yourself, your story and your choice. I got an idea for an about me page. I have same opinion and agreed with you about the Wealthy Affiliate marketing platform and I have joined it already and started earning while learning many things there. 

    However, your article is a great inspiration for me. I am going to save your article and contact you soon. 

  12. What a load of nice BS! Just kidding. I am a fellow WA member. A newbie! I will give a response to the page you requested comments on. I never make comments without reading the About page. I discovered there are so many interesting folks here, like you.

    My wife and I went on a Grecian Island cruise on the Cunard Queen Victoria ship in 2017. One of the Islands we visited was Rhodes. You picked an idyllic place to live in. We have more in common as my wife and I both grew up in England. LA is now our home.

    I’ll check out your pages now and leave comments before going to bed.


    • Ha Ha thanks Edwin. It is nice to meet you 🙂

      As you are a newbie, I will just take a moment to offer a hand of help if you ever need anything. Come and find me here or on the WA Platform, and I will be happy to help you out 🙂

      I have been to LA before but it was a long time ago now. If you are ever in Rhodes again make sure to look me up!
