About BandulaD
Joined January 2020
I'm a retired Accountant living in Panadura, a coastal town in Sri Lanka. I retired in 2018 concluding a career of 44 years of service in the Plantation Sector relating to Tea Growing & Manufacture. My wife Lumbini and I live in Panadura, which is our home town. Our hobbies are horticulture, music, and reading. We love plants and outdoor life.

Looking out for a source of passive income to supplement our savings, I thought of Affiliate Marketing and having googled for suitable options I came across Wealthy Affiliate as a good, recommended choice and decided to become a Premium member.

Memories of my career as a Project Accountant, Internal Auditor, Chief Accountant, Financial Controller remind me of a life spent preparing financial statements, reports and watching PowerPoint presentations in silent Board Rooms, offering hours of comments, complex analysis, and optional solutions.

In contrast to the dreary world of figures within the confines of my office, the lush greenery and cultivated tea plantations that surrounded me in the hill country of Sri Lanka still carries memories of astonishing beauty. The bewildering array of color and form of ornamental plants that offered companionship and hours of pleasure in my official bungalow garden was an immense source of inspiration and joy.

Quite naturally, in my search for market imperatives that would support an ideal niche, my obvious choice was horticulture, which had been a childhood fascination and dream.

The magic inherent in beautiful plants is healing, beneficial and can take us back to the serenity of nature. For me, the unique form of Cacti and Succulent plants always carried a special fascination. Their miniature form and surprisingly brilliant flowers, in contrast to strong spines, offered remarkable diversity.

At the other end of the thorny flowering world I found the queen of all blooms – the sweetly scented Roses -, so stunningly displayed in floral arrangements and garden borders. The range available for selection was immense and limitless in choice. It is my fond wish that by creating a website providing access to this limitless world of joy, visitors would discover the value to feed their innermost wishes and dreams.

Great to see that you've added some goals Bandula!

Working towards achieving these goals will happen as you take action on the lesson tasks here at WA. Ask questions when you have them, and take your time. This is not a race, and your time investment will have you up and running before you know it!

You're going to do just great!

Hello and thank you for following me, I am now also following you.

I’m hoping that since you went premium things have been going really well for you. I have just got more motivated as the days have gone by.

I completed entrepreneur certificate training in a week, and I am now bashing through WA affiliate boot camp, with 2 web sites up and running, with over 30 keyword rich content posts and both sites indexed on Google. On day 18 I hit my 21 day goal of 30,000 words.

This all happened since 14 January; this opportunity just blows me away with the support, the training and the collective wisdom brought by the WA community.

I tell you this to emphasise that this Is something that anyone can do. Everyone on here will help where they can.

Please reach out if you are looking for help or support, as you build out in the early days, everyone has something to offer you here even if it is only heartfelt encouragement.

Go well, chase your dreams I have faith in you, we all have faith in you

It is a pleasure to work alongside like minded business people. Good luck

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us.

Wealthy Affiliate is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business. I tried to do this alone before and was completely lost.

Now I know why.

There are so many tricks of the trade and it saves so much time having it all laid out clearly in its training programs.

Keep following the training and exercises every day. Give it a year to see significant results. You'll be a happy camper by then. We all make progress at different rates and it is possible to see meaningful results in 4-6 months. Google cannot be rushed.

Google rewards people with websites that provide value to their visitors. It helps to boost their ad revenue of course! And that helps your websites get high rankings. But it takes time to build credibility. Once they realize your site is an authority site, good things will happen faster.

When you get stuck, and you will, just ask for help in the discussion area located below each lesson. Scroll down to find it. Another member who has the answer will get back to you promptly.

In the meantime have fun with the program. Much success to you.

Cheers!

Edwin

Hi Edwin,
Thank you so much for the valuable advice. Look forward to your continued support and guidance. Please bear with me for the delayed response. I was medically advised to rest following surgery for a defect in my right eye.
Best Regards,

Welcome to WA and Premium

Welcome to WA Premium. I believe you have made an excellent choice by becoming involved with WA here.

You will find there is a very knowledgeable community here willing and able to help you through any problems you might have.

I think you will find this whole experience worth the time and effort you put in.

Just start with the lessons and they will walk you step by step what you need to do to accomplish your goals.

It will take some time and effort – but what good thing doesn’t!

As with most good things in life, you will get out of this program what you put in.

But there is great value here with more training in every aspect of this business model than anywhere else.

If you have any questions, please be sure to let us know.

Dave.

Thank you Dave. Appreciate very much. Wish I was here much earlier. Time is a great guide and healer and provider of opportunities to learn, improvise and execute your plans and goals. Despite lost opportunities, there's much to learn and benefit from days gone by, with so much wisdom available on other spheres of life. So I have no regrets. Better late than never.

Best Regards,
Bandula.

Welcome to Premium where you'll meet lots of new friends, enjoy great training and support. Feel free to follow me and ask for questions if you need help.
Be sure to do each of the lessons and at the end of each lesson is a place for questions to Kyle, especially if you don't understand something.
We welcome you to blog here at WA and let us know how you're doing. Just remember to not put your website in your blog. That goes in your profile, where there is a place to put it. Just click on the Pen at the top of your dashboard, click on "blog at WA", write your title, choose your opening photo from the thousands of photos available and begin to write.
You will have a lot of questions. That’s normal. Most of your questions have been answered in the lessons, blogs, videos and tutorials. Ask questions at the end of each lesson. There is a place at the top of your WA dashboard where you can ask a question. Also, the chat roll is there to ask questions.
We're glad you're here and hope you enjoy your journey at WA.

Hi Joe. Thanks. Appreciate very much. Sorry, I took sometime to respond. I was recovering from surgery and kept away from my computer on medical advice.

When I came here first, just three weeks back, I knew practically nothing about Affiliate Marketing. For a beginner, the advice you have offered is of great value. I may have heard it elsewhere, but the feelings of gratitude that I feel with so many helping hands around, creates lasting memories and much comforting thoughts.

Best regards,

Bandula.
