About Nick

Nick is an online entrepreneur living a laptop lifestyle, working from home and enjoying a life of freedom

Welcome to Home Business Navigator, a site specially designed to nurture your needs if: You are looking to start your own successful home-based business, Earn a Passive Income while you sleep, Live a Laptop Lifestyle and breakout from the traditional mold of a day job or of those who want to take their existing home-based business to the next level.

I am Nick just a regular dude with a modest background who faces the same challenges of life that you do on a daily basis. You can look upon me as someone who has successfully mastered the art of operating a full-time business from the comfort of my cozy home with all the freedom, lifestyle and passive income that a home-based business offers.

A Bit of a Back Story

Growing up I always found everything that bound me quite frustrating. Whether it was the fixed hours of school or all the monotonous nonflexible shackles of the society into which every one of us is being programmed into since early childhood.

At 21, after completing my Graduate degree in Economics I went to the UK for pursuing an MBA specializing in Marketing and Post Graduation in Management & E-Commerce in one of the reputed colleges in London.

Consequently, I worked for some top organizations in London for around 12 years in sales, marketing, and management roles.

But, You Know What ?…

I was not at all happy with the daily grind involved in my day job.

Why ?…

Unhappy with your current job? Why not start a home based business

Even though it seemed to be all nice and positive from the outside it was actually rampant with all sorts of dirty office politics, leg pulling, claiming credit for someone else’s efforts, and pleasing the higher management at any cost.

To make things worse it was a dreaded daily commute and long hours at work while being constantly tracked by all sorts of latest technology which was then followed by emails and messages till late at night. And to add to further woos, I was able to earn a salary that just paid the bills.

It shouldn’t be hard for you to relate to this situation and to predict what was the end result……. NO FAMILY TIME FOR MY WIFE AND LITTLE ONE, NO SOCIAL LIFE… Actually…  NO LIFE AT ALL.

The dire need of earning a living to run my kitchen and family never gave me the time to reflect upon the fact that what I had become was a money earning robot with no spare time to pursue any other hobbies and interests.

However, sometimes a flash of lightning thought would cross my mind …. does a person earn money for a living or does he live to earn money, with no spare time left for better things in life?

What was I able to do to change this?… Nothing

And Then Something Happened…

Since a couple of months, a buzz was going around that owing to a series of cost-cutting measures several employees faced the uncertainty of being laid off by the organization that I worked for.

Little did I realize it would be coming so soon and would involve me too. So yes along with many of my colleagues I was made redundant and was given a 3 months notice period for the employee unions to negotiate a redundancy package.

Everything came out of the blue and now I was, a jobless man with all the available time to kill which I never had in years amidst all the fears and insecurities of a future life.

Little did I know that this was actually a blessing in disguise for me. What seemed to be an apparent misfortune was going to give me a lifestyle that I had always longed for.

Life was throwing on me an opportunity to rebuild my own destiny and this time it was going to be exactly in the same way that I wanted, on my own terms and along with all the freedom to enjoy better things in life.

And Here it Goes…

In my quest to find a living, I was constantly trying to get my hands on any type of work that I could get and tried for all sorts of jobs and opportunities that could earn me some sort of income.

Also, I searched for several online home based opportunities, as I knew that with the advancement in technology there were numerous people conducting their home-based businesses, many of whom I had met as my clients in my previous job.

However, many of these opportunities either turned out to be scams or would not provide a consistent full-time income,  enough to honor my financial commitments.

Finally, one day as the destiny had it, I stumbled upon a website called Wealthy Affiliate. They sounded genuine and offered me their free membership without asking for any of my bank details.

They offered to teach a novice like me, build my own online home business from scratch which would have the potential to generate a fairly handsome amount of passive income even, while I slept or traveled.

I had nothing to lose and it was a win-win situation for me as I was not paying a dime and all I was going to lose was my time ( And I had plenty of it as I was JOBLESS)

Still, I took more time and after a couple of week’s research and careful consideration, I finally took my first step. It was a calculated move as I didn’t have to invest anything at the outset and I was ready to give it all of my energy and focus.

Fast Forward To The Present …

Live a life of freedom by starting an online home based business

I am today running a successful home-based business that creates a substantial passive income for me and gives me high valued freedom and now I maintain a more than healthy work-life balance.

No more tiring commutes and corporate appeasement tactics. The best part of this is that I am my own boss now, can choose my own working hours and can either work day or night, weekends or weekdays or even while travelling whenever I choose to.

I have the freedom to design my own work schedule in line with other commitments like doing school runs for my little one ( which I love, by the way )

I simply enjoy what I do and it’s my passion to which I am addicted now and I no longer drag my selves to a day job every morning. Finally, I am no more a victim of the daily grind and I pat my selves at the back for having followed my intuition and for taking the first step towards the creation of my home-based business.

Over the course, I have seen numerous folks from all over the world (who once were complete newbies) succeed online through Wealthy Affiliate(What a pity. I never knew such people existed until I became a Free Starter Member).

These people have successfully managed to create sustainable, robust home businesses and are now living a life of freedom.

Why Do I Want To Help People?

Nick is helping people start their home based business and live a life of freedom

Sharing is caring they say. On this single idea alone, we human beings have evolved through ages. The best form of a successful business model is the one in which everyone gets an equal opportunity and assistance to benefit and enhance their personal growth by constantly replicating the success of their peers.

“Helping one person might not change the whole world, but it could change the world for one person”

On the same lines, I would like to help all those people who are looking to establish their own home business and live a life of financial freedom as there are countless people out there who are stuck in the daily grind and are not able to earn enough to live a decent life.

There are complete demographics of people-

  • Those who are unemployed (like I once was)
  • People who are retired,
  • People with debts,
  • People who are disabled,
  • Unemployed students burdened by student loans who have just earned their degrees and looking to start a career,
  • People from the middle class looking to break the monotony,
  • People with no or minimal investment looking for a startup,
  • People who are looking for a change in their careers,
  • People looking to supplement their existing income
  • People who like to travel a lot.

With a medium like internet that I can leverage to interact with a global audience, I don’t see a reason why should I not help these people? After all, in helping others lies your own self-worth, isn’t it?

    Hello Nick,

    I can quite relate with the thoughts you’ve shared. I currently work at an organization that substantially pay my bills, but I’m still unhappy because I have no life outside of work.

    Some times, I view my work as modern day slavery because in a lot of work for the boss. I really wish I could establish and develop my own business. This way, I’ll have financial freedom.

    1. Hi Louis,

      Its a harsh truth and most workforce drag themselves daily to work so that it can pay their bills. They are very few people in this world who are fortunate enough to enjoy what they do for a living. Having said this, if you really wish and start looking for a business opportunity there is nothing that can stop you achieve your financial freedom. It’s just a about identifying an opportunity, taking the first step and working hard without loosing your focus. Good Luck and God Bless.

    It’s great for you to have been successful in online business. I have been looking for an online source of income for a better part of my life! But all I found were scams, until I found Wealthy affiliate.  Unique in all respect and it is equipped with all the resources you need to succeed in online business. The training is awesome! Though not totally free but at $19 for the first month I think it’s almost free compare to what you get back! Is there any other means of earning income that you know, Nick? And willing to share of course (#winks)

    1. Hi Jay,

      There are numerous other ways like dropshipping, online surveys, binary options trading, stocks trading, content writing and translations services as long as earning is concerned. I have listed just a few but there many other means available out there. However, after trying and researching them I found that unlike affiliate marketing, most of them do not give you a chance to earn a full time consistent income. So I would strongly suggest you to stick to Wealthy Affiliate where you have this opportunity. Just follow the training religiously and you will surely find what you are looking for.

      Hope this helps.

    Hello Nick and nice meeting you. I like the name of your website and I can say this is what drawned visiting it and reading your story. You have nice education and I am sure that you are going to succeed online also, if you are willing to put in the same work of course.

    I have a degree in Toursim and I knew nothing about affiliate marketing before I joined the same platoform you recently joined. Training there helped me create amazing skills and thanks to that, I am now making a stable online income.

    Thank you.


    1. Hi Strahinja

  8. Shellykh

    A very inspiring story. Im glad you found the job you wanted: a job where you can work from home and be your own boss online. I dont have much experience as a marketer yet but Im learning. Looking through your site I can see much use of it or at least get inspired from. As a new marketer, what do you suggest I learn first?

    1. Hi Shelly,

      I am glad to know that you get inspired by my site. I feel that learning is an integral part of affiliate marketing which is never ending as there is always something that is getting updated in technology and you need to know about it to be a successful marketer. Choosing a direction or a niche is something you need to learn first, as its the first stepping stone to success as an affiliate marketer.

      Good luck and wish you a great success ahead.


  9. Kenechi

    I understood. Your story and is almost similar with most successful online business men and women. This is because most of them really searched for a work from home job and they must have even bought some crazy products before they finally got a legit one. They searched for a work from home job because they needed to sack their boss. They needed financial freedom. Thank God am running my things with wealthy affiliates. 

    1. Hi Kenechi,

      I believe that sometimes when one is totally fed up from the daily grind then his disliking towards a 9-5 job works as the biggest motivating force for him to achieve success in a work from home business. At the end of the day, we all have individual thresholds or pressure points and we need to put them at a good use.

  10. Kehinde Segun

    It is really great finding the rightful way to make living that you’ll happy about. This post is so so motivational. I was in the same scenario when I had job working under somebody. It’s a nice experience at all. Doing the job of two persons at a time is not a small fit. After losing the job, my friend introduced me to wealthy affiliate. Now I’m growing and have started building my own wealth. It is even better and more enjoyable working from home. I am loving my self more now

    1. Hi Kehinde,

      In my experience, I have noticed in some cases (including mine) that people who loose their jobs or get laid off land up getting more better opportunities and it proves to be a defining moment in their life. So indeed sometimes some desperate situations give an all together new meaning to your life. I am glad that you have got it in the form of Wealthy Affiliate and while it’s better and enjoyable for you to work from home, I am sure you are going to achieve great heights in building a successful online business. All the best.

  12. LearnToEarn Admin

    It is good to read of your ability to overcome your circumstances and move on from that to become successful with your online business and still be able to do that from home!

    Spending time with family and loved ones is an intergral part of our lives and not to be able to do that must spark some questions in us why would want to work ourselves to a standstill trying to earn a living, yet not really living life to the full.

    Thank you for sharing the pitfalls you endured along the way, it makes your story more valuable and proves that you have truly found a working solution that has now allowed you to spend time with your family and friends.

    1. Hey thanks for your comment. I especially loved some of your inputs.

      When I lost my full time job I was never able to gather the courage to again go back to the same old lifestyle of daily grind. However I was quite helpless and didn’t have any choice until I got the right opportunity. There is no denying that it involves lots of hard work like any other job or business but still I am the boss and I decide my timings and priorities now to strike a right balance between work and family and that’s the beauty of it with all the freedom it has to offer.

  13. Kehinde Segun

    This is really good and motivational post. I hate the fact that one must pass through hard times to finally get his way to success. I was in the same situation before my friend finally introduced me to wealthy affiliate. I have been gradually building my own wealth ever since.. I am happy to finally be on the part I can decide for myself 

    1. Hi Kehinde,

      Its great to know that you are building your own wealth and you are happy about it. I view both of these as great qualities and the resultant effect can’t be anything short of – SUCCESS. So, go for it.

      All the best

  15. Vapz

    Hi Nick.,

    I read your experience with a certain nostalgia. A lot of us have actually lived through your experience and can perfectly relate with the corporate slavery and hypocrisy that had come to symbolize has come to become our truths. I’m glad that you were able to break free and I hope that in no distant time, I would be able to give the same testimony that  you too have given.

    Good job Nick, forgg  trying to make more people to become free from these shackles.  And people financially sufficient. Your life is a great example for me. 

    1. Hi Vapz,

      Hard to believe but it’s a modern day truth that we have to actually sell our own selves and our souls to earn a living.

      It really excites me when you say that soon you would be giving the same testimony. I am eagerly waiting for that moment as it will be a fulfilling one for me as well. I can see success coming to you even before you know. Good luck and God Bless.


  16. Ranao

    Hey Nick,The word ‘Sharing is caring’ is very nice and significant. I feel fortunate to be a partner of your bitter experience. The article is very important for anyone who is from the third world like me. I am an innovator in online business. Initially, I need to understand the necessary training, knowledge and all the relevant aspects as well as you mentioned. In that case, your wonderful post is a blessing to me. The mentality of helping others is undoubtedly praiseworthy. I hope Home Business Navigator gives more instructions and take a vital role in how to succeed in online business. Thank you from my core of heart for such a resourceful article.Regards, Ranao.

    1. Hey Ranao,

      It felt truly amazing to read your comment. In the highly competitive work environment we are becoming be alien to the spirit of helping others. With the medium of internet available to connect to the global world I don’t see a reason not to help others. After all the world is a global village in the technology age and we are global citizens. It’s by helping others you realize your true worth. I have created my website to provide all the required help and equip anyone wanting to create their own business with all the necessary tips, prerequisites and knowledge.

      Wishing you a great success ahead.
