About Barrp
Joined May 2016
Hi my name is Percy Barr and I am looking for some answers to the whole "How do I make money on the Internet" question. I presently work in the technology space as a manager but I'm looking for a way to speed up my corporate "retirement" and move to a more relaxed work/life balance.

I don't plan on "retiring" ever. I just want to focus my energies on something for My family instead of working for a pay cheque. I have spent a bit of time Blogging but have not monetized mostly because I don't have a lot of new visitors.

So, I thought I would check WA out and see if it can fill the gap between were I am and were I want to be.

Great goals Percy,

The first step to achieving success online is to set some goals and now that you have done this you can start working towards them. Your goals are absolutely achievable and realistic. Dedicate yourself to working through the training, taking action, and getting help when you need it.

I am personally here to help you and there are many others within the community that will reach out to help too.

You are already doing great, keep it up!

That's definitely something that you can get by dedicating time and being consistent in your efforts Percy. An hour or two is a great way to start so you don't get overwhelmed, and I'm sure that over time, as you start seeing results, you'll want to ramp up your efforts to see faster results!

Percy, nice to hear from you. Like you I won't retire from life (9 - 5 yes, life no) as I most likely would be bored to death. Lots of people do die soon after retiring. I am not going to barring accidents.

I certainly hope WA checks out for you. You will get loads of support and knowledge here.

Do keep in touch.

Hello Percy ... thank you for the follow. So ... has WA filled the gap? Looking at a few of your blogs, it sounds to me like it HAS. You've got two great looking websites up so far and not the challenge is just to "rinse and repeat" following your Sept 10 blog.

I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Thanks,
for following me. I think, the good part of these whole business is, that everone can go on his own speed. The difficult part is to have continously the right knowledge, which changes in detail often as the internet is progressing fast. The good foundation we gain here, and the big community is a big advantage to others working alone. I'm just here for some days, but I know I'm in the right place ;)
Nice to meet you,
Corse

Your right about the speed thing. Sometimes I'll read over a lesson a couple time and it still doesn't make sense and a couple days later I'll be working on something unrelated and it becomes clearer.

Thanks for comments

Good morning to you Percy, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow You probably know much more technical stuff like coding, etc than most of us here at WA. You may soon be the man we all go to for assistance.
I suggest you still look at the training, review the Get Started Here [top left green box] and if you have any questions, ask the community. They are the secret sauce to WA.
I look forward to working with you and helping each other and I wish you much success and prosperity in your journey,
Ken

Thank you for your vote of confidence but all my training is in other areas not web. So sometimes even I have problems.

Hi Barrp, Thanks for following me.
I have been to your website and had a fascinating read. I really liked your page http://www.barrworld.com/41-i-bargained-with-life/ and managed to find the comment box and left you a comment, (took a while) after I got distracted with other pages...you have lots.!!! All great though.
I went to your home page and my experience of that was it looked really great but the menu didn't show all of your stuff so I clicked on the picture and I managed to find it all again. Don't miss out on people not being able to find all that lovely content you have, will you?
I shared to Twitter, Google+, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest.
Best Wishes,
Andi.

Thank you for the kind comments about Barr World. It was my first adventure into the internet and was never designed to be a business but things have changed and I need to make some serious changes to that site. Thank you for reminding me.

The idea was to have a place to write and post some of the things I would think about and read. I have to get back to that. Life is to short to just work all the time.

Hello again Percy, you should because you are good at it. Your website is great, really enjoyed it. Just do little changes at a time, I am always doing something to mine but haven't today because I have been connecting with you and a few others and writing what has become my every other daily blog just because I needed a break and it felt really good and pleasing to do it. Don't really know why I felt the need for a slight change in tactics today - I just did and I have had a lovely response from quite a few people here in WA.
Bye for now.
Andi.

My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page.

Hello Percy, ♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right, the first website link (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hey Percy, I just wanted to check in and see if had a chance to start exploring Wealthy Affiliate. If you haven't started the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course - that's the best place to start. It'll take you through the whole process of how to start your website and how the making money stuff works.

Click the green"Get Started Here" button on the left.

PS. One thing people get stuck on a lot is picking a topic or "niche" for their website. If you are having trouble thinking of something to make your website about let me know and we can figure it out together.

PSS. Just about every new member wants to see some success stories! There are too many to list, but here are a few of my favorites:
