Semir A Happy Lifestyle
Personal

My Name is Semir

In the past two months you have been able to read a lot of information on how to start a blog, how to start a business and important tips regarding personal finance. But now it’s time for you to know more about who I am, and for me to share more personal information on this always-in-development-blog of mine. So here it is, let me introduce myself… I’m Semir Vurgun and I founded A Happy Lifestyle.

My name is Semir Vurgun…

and I’m born in 1992 in The Netherlands. Currently also living in The Netherlands and probably going to stay here for a living, since I’m not alone anymore, but more about that later.
When people asked to me me what I wanted to become when I was a child, I always replied with police officer or teacher. When I grew up I wanted to be a teacher and nowadays I do teach, but through this blog and consulting, not in front of a class. My online journey is a different kind of story…

 

It all started in 2010…

when I decided to upload a video of myself on YouTube. I wanted to share my life as one of the first teenagers in The Netherlands. So I did. My first upload in March 2010 got over 300+ views and by the end of April I got over 1000+ views per video. The motivation was high, so I decided to apply some time-management for myself to make sure I could focus on my upload schedule and by August 2010 I was invited to join the YouTube Partner Program. After making good money though my own YouTube channel, I decided to help other creators! It was time to…

 

Start my own business…

so I could help other creators to become influencers. Together with a business partner I created a company. First it was located in a small town, yet later moved to Amsterdam in a big office near Central Station and The Amsterdam Theatre. I had it all at the time. There was personnel, there were managers, production studio’s, lunchbreaks with the teams and we represented over 2,000 partners worldwide with the agency we became. With the agency I created 3 millionaires (who weren’t even twenty-one years old!) and paid thousands of money each month to various partners all over the world. But then it happend…

 

I got myself a girlfriend!

When I met this girl in December 2015, it just felt right. Of all the girls I’ve previously met in life, I never felt such a strong bond. In september 2016 Daniëlle and I got “Facebook official” and that was the time to change my life. I worked 60 to 80 hours each week, but with a girlfriend it’s important to make time for each other. That was one of the reasons why I decided to quit my job, sell my company and take some time off to enjoy with my girlfriend. Yet, I got bored and needed a new kind of income, since a bag of money wouldn’t be enough to live the lifestyle I wanted too. Therefor I…

Started my own Blog!

Hooray! In May 2018 I started A Happy Lifestyle! The reason to have this blog can be found on my about page. One of the most important reasons for me to start this blog is to share information with all of you regarding business, finances and lifestyle. Another second-most-important reason it so I can make more money. I want to create a steady, yet growing, stream of income through my blog. Therefor you see advertisement, affiliate links and maybe some sponsored content or digital products, which generates money for me. When you buy anything using one of the affiliate links, I will get a commission for the promotion, but the money I get will be paid by the website and therefor I will never ask you to send me money.

One of my inspirations in blogging is Michelle Schoeder-Gardner, a very popular financial blogger making millions through her blog, and Serena Verbon, a Dutch former beauty blogger (now mommy-blogger) who I personally know. I hope one day to make the earning of Michelle Schroeder-Gardner, since I would like to share it with people less fortunate, and to have an own family as Serena has.

 

For now all I can hope for is for you to follow my journey on making this blog successful. You can even help me get to my goal. It would mean a lot to me if you would mention me on your blog (share you blog in the comments!) and follow me on the social media of A Happy Lifestyle!
