About BBR913
Joined January 2015
I am "retired" but would like to do something productive and earn some extra money to support my passion, which is to travel where and when I want.... I have always been intrigued by e-commerce and would like to build a successful site or two!

Owned my business for over 10 years and thoroughly enjoyed and will again what the business world has to offer.... from challenges to rewards, of course! The only difference at the moment is that I have the time to do what I want to do and hopefully, with diligence and "hard work", I would be able to achieve my goals.

I am currently living in Thailand. This is such a beautiful country with mountains in the north and beaches in the south. People are the same everywhere, friendly helpful ones and the others.... well, you know! Generally speaking, Thais are warm natured! Learning the language and culture is another challenge!

Living in Asia and trying to locate the truly unique but not too ethnic items to share or to market is not the easiest task but it's fun, really fun trying!

WA is definitely family!

It looks to me, because you are here, you know the value of getting it together. It's great to be welcome in the most comfortable wealth building community anyone will need. You clearly have what it takes to develop additional income streams that free your lifestyle and demonstrate the true value of abundance mentality.
Blessings to you!

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hello, IveTried That!
Good to hear from you but I was really puzzled when I wrote you two messages much earlier and did not get a response.

I don't have a problem with my niche. I know what I wanted to do but did get distracted along the way. Now I am back on track and hoping I can get a site up and running soon. Since I am tech challenged, I need all the help I can get. I am going through my training again and when I need assistance, will you please help?

I did sign up with you, yes? Don't want to impose on anyone unnecessarily...

Hello BB (I thought perhaps you had been named after that late 50's, 60's film icon Bridget Bardot lol)

BB has a French ring to it, don't you think lol.

All info will be relevant somewhere down the line.
But if you do get stuck just send me a PM.

Hahahaaa..... I like the Nickname you gave me!! Wish I had her body! But not now.... she's still alive?

Time difference is OK with me. I am from the US, so.... Know it well!!

Many thanks, once again, Robert, for the willingness to help! My hair is really getting thin these days (hahhaaa.... that's why I wore that hat in the photo!!, no, not really!!) I have been pulling out my hair since I joined WA.... I had had no problem whatsoever when I had my old blog about Thailand.... Someone set up the site (WP) for me and all I had to do was writing contents and insert photos (which I took).... and really enjoyed it at that time. I did not monetize the site though. But since I love to travel so much and I am no longer working.... I need money to do what I enjoy doing, which is, travel more now....... I spent too much a couple of months ago when I visited family in the US!!)

I will put a couple of questions together and where my roadblocks lie to you over the weekend and perhaps, at your convenience, knock me over the head a few times!!

BB
Reply
Robert-A Premium
I've knocked a few heads together in my time and head knocking is fine as long as the sense stays in lol.

I met BB when I was a wee boy. She must have been about 18/19 and married to her then husband Roger Vadim who was directing her at the time.

She bought me and my brother an ice-cream and chatted to us during a break in the film she was making. Of course we weren't interested in her body at the time and only had eyes for the ice-cream lol.

Ok BB I am just about to go out for a few hours so any questions you have I will be glad to answer them if I can but later tonight ok.
It's 11.40 am here so you will probably be in bed by the time I get back home.
Have a nice evening.

Bernie: Thank you so much for your follow. I appreciate it very much and welcome to my network of fabulous WAers. My network is about two things.

First, I encourage every follower to regularly post a blog with WORTHY content to other WAers. Obviously, if you blog once a day your ranking will quickly move up in WA. However, please understand that I only blog approximately once every two weeks and in the back of my mind I am only blogging to my followers in an attempt to provide the best example (of my writing skills) to you that I can. Why! Your website will only be successful if you post quality pieces to it.

Second, I try to help my followers every time they run into a snag with their websites to the best of my ability. If that is not good enough, I will refer you to other HELPERS at WA that will definitely be able to help you. So an open invitation: If you run into a problem here at WA, please let me try to assist you.

Please remember that Kyle, Carson, me and you are not WA. WA is the thousands of students learning the concepts of e-commerce and the hundreds of WAers that learn to blog regularly for the delight of the community as they attempt to hone their various writing skills. Welcome! DAN
Reply
BBR913 Premium
Thank you, Dan....... Much appreciated for your willingness to help and share! Actually, at this point, I am not as concerned about ranking as to the training and education aspect of the overall scheme. If I could answer, help others in any way, I would..... technical questions though....mmmm... I am still learning! :)

Reply
BBR913 Premium
Good Morning, Dan, I used to have a blog on Chiangmai. Mainly for newbies or anyone who is considering to retire here. I no longer am blogging on that subject due to various reasons. May pick it up again. BTW, I'd see what I can do with my old post…
At least 10 times, you said, wow! I was here 5 before the decision was made… I considered China but that was out within a couple of weeks although I lived there for 1.5 years. …. HKG & SGP are too expensive (especially housing); so took a chance on CM and here I am! Just wanting simple life…

May I ask which country you are in now?

Hello Dan, It must be cold in Idaho! Never been to Idaho, Wyoming, Montana.... Even though there are more cattle than human population in those states, they are just tooooooo cold for me :)!

Hi, glad to meet me, lol.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for following me.

I’m pretty impressed with WA training and I think we have found a gold mine of information. Hmmm, seems like geniuses like us tend to gather in the same place (lol).

I started making money online in 2004. WA wasn't around back then. I had to learn from scratch. What took me 2 years to accomplish online, you will be able to do in a couple of months if you are new to running an online business.

The wealth of knowledge here in the tutorials and the help from fellow WA members is exceptional. I have never met a bunch of like-minded people who are so eager to help yet ask nothing in return.

When I came to WA in February 2015, I was skeptical. Seen enough online scams in my time. I searched high and low for "the catch." There was none. I learned WA is legitimate. There is no pressure to upsell me more products or services. That was refreshing.

Anyway Bernice, here’s wishing you all my best for your success with online marketing.

Please feel free to send me a private message if there is anything I can do for you.

You can send me a private message if you have questions by going to my profile and clicking on the private message button; https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/grampamike

You may also want to check out my WA profile blog posts as there is some interesting and informative information there.

Here is a sample of what you will find; Here’s a little inspiration: Update: I wanted to mention that all my recent posts on my website get ranked in the top 5 for my keyword or keyword phrase. So study the tutorials here at WA. They hold the clues for getting top ranking for your web pages.

Need some pictures for your website? Check out my post.

Hi Dr.K00, I have been an expat in Thailand for 5 years now. Beautiful country and the cost of living is low. Life is what you make of it here. One can lead a "western" live-style or a fusion of.
I used to write a blog, providing information, insights to newbies, people who contemplate on retiring here and even to expats who didn't know much about Thailand!!

I got bored though...:), so, am into and onto affiliate marketing.. I work at my own pace, not racing with anyone. Even though I joined WA last year life got in the way with me last year. But, I am serious now....

May abouts are you from? Country, city, etc.? What brought you to WA?

Bernie

Hi BBR,

I am a medical doctor, currently working non-clinically in health admin, seeking alternative income options in order to promote true health and wellness online. My blog is dedicated to evidence-based wellness: www. healthylifehack .com (temporarily down as I am transferring it over to WA hosting).

I am astounded at the support provided by the WA community, and hope to make online business a full-time reality. How are you finding your WA journey? Does it offer a sustainable living while residing abroad? My ultimate goal would be to work online while incorporating some travel.

Dr. K.

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

From the start I have written trainings for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under trainings (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

That's my problem at the moment! Deciding on which area to start first!! I see a number of members doing the "Affliliate Marketing" for their initial "out-reach" project.... I am afraid that it might be inudated with this topic.... So, am just concentrating on getting the training under my belt first and then go from there. I have a couple of ideas, but not quite sold on it yet!
Good luck to you in all that you do!! What's your website link?

I am sure there IS a lot of competition for the WA affiliate program. On the other hand, you know and understand and have access to a different group of people than most, so there is certainly the potential of marketing the same thing to a different niche. I am confident you will find a niche you will be really happy with.

Right now I am just on Lesson 7 of the first course. My website is http://gotbackupguys.com (I will get more content there soon!). Just before finding WA I had decided to join GotBackup. In spite of a distrust of network marketing I actually am excited enough about their product that I do want to share it with people. My goal is to help 1,000 people backup all their files to a secure cloud backup via GotBackup, and to help 10 people who are also interested in pursuing a business through GotBackup. Beyond that, I am considering things like a Texas Bitcoin website, or a local "DelRioLife" website, or maybe even one about elevating wheelchairs (I have friends who manufacture a custom wheelchair). Oh, I also made a website for my church before I moved from Arizona (www.ldsyuma.org). "Stay on target, . . . stay on target!"

BBR, I can appreciate your hesitation in getting started. It can be a little disturbing at first. Most people think too much about it. Just about anything that you are interested in can be arranged into an affiliate marketing site. I started two before I settled on what I built.
I chose to do a golf niche and was worried about how to turn it into an affiliate marketing site.

I would suggest that you ask Kyle about some ideas. He has a video that is amazing where he finds keyword and picks a niche and goes with the site. I know!!!! He's a pro but the video is very eye opening as to what can be done.

If you have a hobby or a subject of interest/passion, that may be you best bet to start with.

You will figure it out.. I wish you much success.

Hi there, THANK YOU for your encouraging words.... I will, soon, I believe settle on a niche to start with. My issue (with myself,:)) is I have such a vast interest of a lot of things... hobbies, life experiences, knowledge, etc.....
Would you still have the link for the video you mentioned above please? If it's not too much trouble, would you forward that to me?
I wrote to Kyle earlier this week or late last week, still have not heard.... he may be too busy with his workload!
What I want to do now is to finish up my training, at least Course 1 and then work on my website with a viable niche.

Again, thanks!
Bernie

One thing I am considering, in addition to what I have, is doing a local site about all the things in my town. There would not be a lot of traffic, since it is such a small town, but it would allow me to write about all sorts of fun topics and interact with businesses and individuals across the town (and perhaps charge the businesses for some advertising or prominent placement). Perhaps you could do something like that, or perhaps you could just "brand yourself" and discuss all your interests, providing information and sometimes providing affiliate links. I recently found a guy I knew 25 years ago, and he has a .com website simply named after himself where he blogs about things that he finds cool. It's pretty eclectic, but each post is well researched, well written, and I am guessing probably gets a lot of traffic and probably brings him money through affiliate programs.

Your idea for what you are doing is wonderful! It will work for your town and advertising for other businesses would expand the realms of "subscription list". Did I say that right?
I am considering a couple of possible niches. The first one is "how to start and build a successful business". I know, the name is too long.... have to do refining on it. However, I still can't see where and how to monetize this topic, other than books. My advantage on this, even though there are a substantial amount of "how tos" on this topic, I can surely assist a sector and or section of the population who have no clue whatsoever. Am I confusing you yet?

I'd write again tomorrow on the 2nd potential... can't get the name right yet now! Been a stressful day! Had to go to Immigration today and it always stressed me out!

Cheers!

There is a famous quote from Mark Twain:

"If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And If it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first."

And that just means - do your hardest task first or at least as soon as you can in the morning. If you do this then the rest of your day is easy from there!

ANYWAY…

Going PREMIUM creates all sorts of opportunities -- not least the development of new skills, and if you have a passion the opportunity to present that to the world! They might even buy something.
Good luck

Hey Bernice! How's the training coming? Enjoying your time here so far? If you need me to look over anything or want my opinion on what you've done so far, just hit reply and I'll be more than happy to take a look!

Real quick, would you rather have a small lemonade stand on your front yard or be the owner of a global juice empire? I know this is a weird question, but this blog post will help clear things up! Do you want a small lemonade stand or do you want...

Hi! I just went Premium a couple of weeks ago and Yes, I will really appreciate any and all help I can get!
Just started watching video and the lessons provided in WA. It may take a while as the daily grind has gotten the better of me lately!
I will, of course, look at the "Roadmap to success 2015".... Is there a 2016 Roadmap?

Many Thanks!

The information in the 2015 guide is still relevant and accurate :) I'll likely update it and add to it in early 2016.
