About BellaBill
Joined July 2017
Hello, my name is Bill, and I’m a stay at home father to a wonderful 7-year-old daughter while my wife works.

Seven years ago I got diagnosed with Lymes Disease, but whatever, it's a struggle for sure for me and my family, but in a way it's also a blessing.

Not being allowed to work left me being the parent at home full-time.
She’s an only child, and I’m still a child at heart so we get along fantastic and love playing together and finding things to do. It really is the best job in the world.

But my day-to-day health has been getting better recently and my daughter started full time school, just finished Grade 1 and headed off to Grade 2 soon. I've been searching for a new hobby or work from home job, something to pass the time really.

My research brought me across many things that didn't pique my interest at all, some of which didn't seem to be on the up-and-up, etc. And then I came across Wealthy Affiliate and for a lack of a better term - fell in love.

Step-by-step instruction on topics I have no idea about or understand, easy walking you through it process so you can learn. All of the Lessons, and Courses, and Bootcamps, Classrooms, and Live Video Classes - THERE'S JUST SO MUCH LEARNING POTENTIAL HERE!

While chatting with another member here (MKEARNS) he refereed to WA as a "terrific friending, learning, and success driven university". And I couldn't agree more...I'm looking at this place first and foremost as a place to learn, grow, meet new people, and become successful through the hard work and the opportunities for KNOWLEDGE that have been put in front of me.

Now all that Wealthy Affiliate University (WGU!!!) needs is a mascot and a football team. Maybe Kyle and Carson can get on that! HAHA.

Anyway, I've been blogging about my journey here as a newbie and will continue to chart my progress along the way, so I hope you all check out my Blog posts.
Also feel free to check out my website (address located on the right hand side of my profile under the 'Follow Me On' header) and follow it's growth along with me.

Any feedback, or advice is always welcome and appreciated.

Cheers,

Bill

Hi Bill, Thank you so much for the follow, much appreciated.  I reckon this is the best place where we can learn and increase your exposure on IM.  The training and tutorials are top notches and I believe the WA community is the place you want to be with on your journey to build a passive income.

Hi Bill and thanks your FOLLOW. I absorbed your interesting profile and admire how you have confronted and overcome big challenges in your life.
You are right. Things here can seem quite daunting. Some days you finally "crack the code" on an item only to find a whole load of new stuff to learn. My advice is "plod thru" preferably with consistent frequent time slots each day. Take breaks. Ask questions. Search for answers. This Community truly helpful.

Ha! It just came to me you have a whole load of "child related" niches you know lots about and it sounds you have passion in that general area. Also you have tackled specific health challenge - can you help others suffering from the same affliction?

Sorry ... was just musing! In whatever directions you take I wish you great success.
Kind regards

Hi Bill, thank you for following me. I am new as of only a week ago and have been indulging in all the information on WA, meeting new people like yourself and really see this as a positive approach to our future! I wish you all the best in your journey! Once I get through the Get Started training, I plan to keep followers like yourself informed on my progress. Enjoyed reading your intro and begin a great stay at home father to your daughter - great work!
Based on your description that you have something in the works, that I will look closer at once all this information is filtered in my brain lol!

Hello Bill, Welcome to WA. You may have already saw this, but I tell everyone one about it anyhow! We all have those days when we get frustrated--like I did today and it wasn't even WA related, but I read it anyhow, and it got my mind in the right place. I was a stay at home mom of 5 for 35 years, not to mention all the block kids.... (I worked on and off for the man, and for myself too) between things.

Hi Bill,

And I am guessing your daughter's name is Bella?
Yeah, they grow up quick. Time goes fast.
I remember cutting my daughter's umbilical cord 21 years ago. It was just like yesterday.

Thank you for following me and I wish you all the best.

Great meeting you and see you along the WA journey.

Welcome my friend and being a at home dad is by far harder than
working in my opinion. I have more appreciation for dads that stay home to take care of the kids because it is definitely not an easy job. I wish you all the success here at WA!!

BellaBill Premium
Appreciate the sentiment my friend. It's a great job to have for sure, glad I'm not taring roofs or ice road trucking or something instead ya know? HaHa.
It was definitely a months long adjustment when she started school full time. It was like "What do I do all day now" "What do stay at home moms do all day? I dunno." I was bored and like bummed out in the beginning and it took me awhile to figure it all out. Excited I came across this hobby a few weeks ago in which I new nothing about, should be able to buckle down and learn so much here about a brand new skill I didn't have previously once this school year starts.

I appreciate the kind words and well wishes. Awesome, you have a 7 year old as well. Such a great age - able to play games, sports, activities, able to grow similar interests with you now etc. That was the inspiration that lead me to my website idea (the link is on the right hand side of my profile page). Check it out man, it's not built out much yet currently, but it's something that a parent of a 7 year old might enjoy once it's more flushed out.

PM me after I'd love to hear your thoughts on the idea. Nice to meet you.

Hi BellaBill, my name is Jerry McCoy and I am a newbie. I read your profile so I know you have your good days and your bad days. I hope that you have more good days than bad. I believe when you say the this is a university. Wow so much to learn. The support is terrific. The lessons while they may be intimidating at first are truly top of the line. I had a problem uploading my pic at first but found out that the problem was size. After I got that resolved it has been a breeze. Anyway just wanted to say hello.

Hello, Bill
Good to meet you and thank you for adding me to your network. Lymes disease is not good, they say we do not have such a thing in Australia but I'm not so sure. I have had several ticks and I have wondered about their involvement. Anyway, best wishes for the success of your online business and enjoy being a stay at home dad!

Hello Bill 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.
If you do get stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 300+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy your day.

Hey Robert,
Thanks my friend, The learning curve has indeed been steep...still just on Course 1 Lesson 9...but that's why I'm here so I will definitely be digging into that lot of blogs on your profile. Knowledge is power! Much appreciated, sir. - Bill

Hi again Bill it’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your day.

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

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also 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. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

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! :)
