About Andrew888
Joined August 2018
Just a regular guy looking for a way to escape the rat race.

Working for someone else, doing a regular 9 to 5 job, has never appealed to me. I knew early on in my working life that I wanted to be flexible in the time that I allocated to working for money and this meant that I would have to be my own boss. So I have been my own boss for the last 20 years, renovating houses. The money has been good, and directly related to how many months I work each year.

I am very interested in people, and specifically the differences between us. We basically all want similar things in life. They include the necessities of food, water, and shelter. Beyond that, we still have many things in common like the desire to love and be loved, to be comfortable and able to purchase the goods and services we want to enjoy a quality life.

I have traveled to 35 different countries, many of them more than once, and one, in particular, more than 20 times. Traveling is a great equalizer, as it helps us to realize that there is no 'us and them.' There are just people, all around the world with similar hopes, dreams, and desires for a better life and also where ever I've been the people are facing similar problems.

I would like to invest more of my time and energy into helping people recognize their similarities, and in this way we would be less prone to judge others based on who we 'think' they are, rather than the reality that they are very similar to us, and desire to improve their lives and the lives of their family and friends just as we do.

I have written a self-help book, and am having problems getting agents and publishers to even look at it, as I am not a recognized authority in this field. The aim of my blog site is to raise my profile so that I will be taken seriously as an author in the future, and then my book will be published.

I have also realized that using this platform can build me an income base so that I never have to renovate a house again. I am looking forward to the day when I can travel where I want when I want, and derive a fantastic income from my laptop :-)

It is with love and respect for all beings that I write my blogs in the hope that each of them will make someone's day a little brighter.

Love to you all,
Andrew

I like your bio Andrew. I was working on connections on LinkedIn in relation to the website I set up through WA. It's obviously a business network, but using the same philosophy as you have, that people are multidimensional, I searched under the word guitar and found a thousand or so people who had guitar mentioned on their LI profile. So much for people who say everyone should be one-dimensional on LI for business success.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for following me and joining my network. I've returned the compliment and followed you back.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. WA is a great community. There is so much to learn. I am here most days. I learn something new every day.

I've been a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate for two years, and I don't regret one day!

I've checked out your website, and it's coming along well. There's a great future for you in blogging. Keep pushing forward and keep publishing. The rewards will follow!

Keep moving ahead. However your day may be, take a little step forward. Some days you'll make significant strikes, other days you will not, but do something every day, however small in building your business.

You will read many stories of WA members are succeeding with their online goals. Some have achieved this in a few months; for others, it has taken a couple of years. The common trait for those that have reached their goals is taking action. Everyone who has succeeded has taken small steps every day. Do something, however tiny, every day, and you will reach your goal.

Pace yourself and enjoy your journey. Remember, little steps are better than no steps!

Best wishes,
Paul.
Be Happy!

Thanks for asking - BRILLIANT- I've changed theme. I got 2 people to provide comments on "What is Cholesterol? NEW Research.

The guy, Stefin, provided me the name of a theme that may well suit us both better - it can be read easily...

I'm ready to post my 3rd post - Does Your Body Make Cholesterol? Science Says YES.

Would you please review my first post when you've got a chance.

Hope things get sorted out with your vehicle soon.

Hey :-)
I see your theme is changed. I'm happy to stick with mine for now but will be interested to see if you change again and what it looks like.
Great. Get the third post online :-)
I will comment on your post 'what is cholesterol'. However, my brain has a blockage when trying to understand this type of stuff. So I am not sure what to say. I'll get to it later today.

Hi Andrew I like Taetske came over here because of your comment on her site and I agree with most of what you said. Like minded people will always draw other like minded people to them.

We don't always have to be on the same page but we learn as we live and we learn from others.

I have the same analogy on what I write about, I have a great need to create authority before I am taken seriously and that is very difficult with out the educational back ground but I will keep on keeping on.

You are so right that people are basically the same in all walks of life, we are from the same creator. We have the same desires, those that aspire more then that 'because' they can, I feel for them because there lives are very shallow.

Some times education can get in the way the true education is out there in the world rubbing elbows with the rest.

Hi Linda. Thanks for connecting.
I'm searching for 'always a better way' but am not finding you.
What books have you written, and have you managed to get anything published yet?
I had a message from someone the other day who was a publisher, and he mentioned that he knows many people who have successfully 'self-published.' maybe this is the route that we need to take to try and gain some 'authority.'
I wish you all the best,
Andrew

Good afternoon Andrew,

Last year I did not follow many people and this year will be the same. You left a very special comment on my post so here I am.
I hope you do not mind me saying this but WA does not like our website on the profile. I see you have it under Follow Andrew and that is the right place for it.
I always ask new people I meet here if they know the world library. You can find many exciting things there and I have used it sometimes when writing posts for my websites. In case you do not here comes: www,wdl,org
You have visited so many countries that broadens one's horizon. I have also traveled quite a bit when I was younger and absolutely love it.
Wishing you all the best.

Regards, Taetske

Andrew888 Premium
Hi Taetske. Thanks for the kind comments. I am not commenting on many posts these days because I do not have much free time. However, your post was just too important not to get involved in. Thanks for sharing it with us.
I did not know about the world library. It looks like a valuable resource so I have bookmarked it for later reference.
Life is mostly good, sometimes difficult, but always I try to look for the positive in everything :-) I stay sane that way :-)
I wish you all the best and hope to see you around WA.
Kind regards,
Andrew

Good Morning Andrew,

The world library is a treasure trove.
This 5 G post shows a lot of different opinions. Some are rather strong but I will not react, do like Mahatma Gahndi.
Yes, we should always try and see the positive side of things although with 5G I have not found that side yet. With people, one should always remember we all have the Godly spark inside. That is neither always easy.

Greetings from the south of Spain, Taetske

You are lucky that you have come across this opportunity with WA while you are still young. Treat it as a long-term investment in yourself, and never give up, and you will get to travel and do the other things that you are passionate about.

The moment you write the self-help book, you are already in authority since what you are writing are your knowledge, experience & research, and as long as it is original content & 100% gramatically correct.

I would suggest that you make an ebook and register with Amazon or Clickbank and I will be your AGENT. Cheers!
Reply
Andrew888 Premium
Thanks for the idea. I will look into it.
Why do I need an agent if I register the ebook with either of these affiliate sights?

Hello Andrew And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring to the training.

Hi John,
Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate and congratulations on going premium your journey is about to go cosmic, you will not regret your decision.

Enjoy the fantastic training here at Wealthy Affiliate and keep moving forward. If you ever get stuck or need a point clarified, ask the community a question and the answer will soon be provided.

It would be great if you could add a little more to your profile. You might want to consider Introducing yourself to the community by perhaps giving your name, say where you are from, if you have a job at present or in the past. Other areas of your life, things you like or dislike and maybe how you arrived at WA.

These are only suggestions of course but it would help the community to get to know a little better. It's totally your call.

I wish you well on your WA journey and have added you to my network to see your success.

All the best.
