About Bartcolen
Joined April 2015
Hi, everyone! My name is Bart and I am VERY excited to be here!

Firstly, I want to commend you all for being part of a community that is so obviously positive and encouraging. With so much negativity on the Internet (various comment sections and just all-around bad vibes), just knowing what is waiting for me here has me already feeling very grateful! And the whole people-helping-people thing is precisely what I want to be involved with, especially given how much wonderful give-and-take I have enjoyed in my years of active Twelve Step recovery. The whole concept of mentoring someone and being mentored is, in my experience, absolutely invaluable.

As for me, I am a very intellectually curious and enthusiastic non-conformist with a very eccentric sense of humor ( ! ) keen to make the most of my life, both materially, but also in terms of living out my dreams and pursuing my passions (and hopefully encouraging others to do likewise!) and learning as much as I can along the way! I feel like we are all here for a reason and it behooves us to learn and grow and fulfill as much of our potential as we can; and to help others to do likewise.

My primary interest is in music (especially classical, '50s jazz, '60s rock, blues, cool old Cuban Mambo and various kinds of African music). Most likely, that will be my focus here. Additionally, I am very into international film, self-help/personal growth, writing (I wrote and self-published my first book, a comedy, last year), British comedy, travel/culture/languages and Australian Rugby League.

What I hope to gain from this experience is plenty of knowledge as to how to best go about making my online work profitable, getting to know lots of cool and positive and upbeat people, being able to learn enough to be able to help others through the rough patches I will have experienced and, via Wealthy Affiliate and the other businesses I am starting on the side, to be able to move to the province of Brittany in France, meet and befriend lots of cool and interesting French people and play jazz piano at night in the local clubs.

Happy to be here and many thanks in advance for all of your kind support!

we have the same target of 3000 per month, thats enough to leave me job and work on my biz full time - let's do this!

Right on! That is my thought exactly.

For what it's worth, I have learned a great lesson in the last year: if you spend a little time each day (even if it's just 20 minutes) working towards a given goal, that time adds up in a hurry and you get RESULTS: I started and finished my first book in three months just by allotting a bit of time each day! Maybe it can be the same with this?

Hey there Bart

These are great goals and they are more than achievable! The more time you can spend on learning here within the Community at Wealthy Affiliate the better, but we've built WA so that you can work at your own pace!

I know that you are going to do great!

Most definitely Bart, if you follow a passion and you love what you do, the money usually comes chasing close behind. I look forward to working with you!
