About Tom

Tom Hovhannisyan

Founder

Internet Marketing is something that I wake up and go to bed with every day. My name is Tom and Internet Marketing has been my passion since the early days. Anything that I know about Internet Marketing and making money online is thanks to Wealthy Affiliate. Been a member on and off since 2006 when Kyle and Carson first started the program.

A Little Background


Graduated from the University of La Verne in 1996 with Bachelor's in Business Administration. What a waste of time and money!!! Never wanted to study business, my passion was Political Science at that time.

Nevertheless, my uncle who was paying for everything told me that if it is not Business then he was not going to pay for anything. I had fallen into the trap thinking that he might be right and just went with it. After graduating in 1996 I went back to Armenia where I am originally from to "run" his businesses. What a 7 year nightmare that was that I am still  recovering from!!!

If you have kids, do not force your will upon them. Let them choose their career based on their own passions and interests. Do not paralyze their Lives!!!  

Came back to the States in 2004 and been here ever since.

When I first heard about Wealthy Affiliate in 2006 and  that you can make money online choosing a PASSION or INTEREST it has struck me as never before that it is a dream come true type of a deal and I should definitely join it.  On top of that, I was working for one of my family members (did not learn the lesson the first time around) and was doing the 9-5 for 5 days a week while learning more about Making Money Online on my spare time.

During all these years, almost 13 years ( and yeah, by the way, I have also managed to graduate from Full Sail University with Masters in Internet Marketing, another waste of time and money!!!)WA has taught me more about Internet Marketing and Marketing in general than both those Universities combined.



What is the The Wise Choices Network


How did I come up with this name and What is The Wise Choices Network?

I wanted to build a website to promote affiliate products and services but could not come up with a name that reflected the intention of the site. Then I started flipping through the Bible...the words that I kept reading were "choose", "choice", "wise", "wisely". And I said to myself how about thewisechoices.com. Upon checking with Godaddy it was available and I grabbed it immediately.

The Wise Choices Network was built for people who would like to turn their passions and interests into an Online Business. I have made it my goal to provide you our visitor with highly relevant and helpful content that in turn can help you Build Your Online Business.


Why Do I Want to Help People


The answer is very simple. By helping people to turn their Passions and Interests into an Online Business will not only change their lives but it will also change mine. Every time a visitor, YOU, purchases a product or a service through my links it opens up an avenue for them to become successful and for me to earn more revenue. So, it is my commitment to help you in any way I can and to go that extra mile to help you make that Wise Choice. Hence, if you need any help, feel free to leave a comment and I will do my best to help you out.
