About Birki
Joined January 2019
Hey, I am not yet sure what to expect from this community, I am very curious. I am a part time eco farmer with some cattle and sheep, a building industry construction consultant (ask me what that entails) and I have a nice cosy B&B to fill in all the gaps in between. I wish to find new challenges and am open for new ways and developments!

Hello Sabine And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
I was born and raised on a farm and worked the land for 25 years before I packed it in and joined the Civil Service of our government.

Had to move into a city though but still miss those wide open spaces.
Moving On...

Since you joined you may have come to the conclusion that internet marketing is a steep learning curve and there is always something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 470 blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.
Robert

Welcome to WA PREMIUM
You've made a life-changing decision. If you stick with it, over time your greatest dreams will come true. Can you imagine what it was like when the first owners of telephones placed them? They were cash machines.

You purchased a cash machine when you chose to go premium. You have proven to be a true entrepreneur and a goal setting winner. Please don't forget to FOLLOW BACK AND LIKE OFTEN. In fact, thank you in advance for the follow back and the like!

Your ranking will improve when you comment and like just like in the real world when people follow and like your site will move higher in the search engine. Follow the training to get a deep understanding of the internet. So, again, thank you in advance for the following. Enjoy and take it easy.

Hey Sabine!

Congrats and welcome to WA premium!

I think the most import thing to do with any new venture is to "plug in" and be consistent. Schedule time each day to do the training, work on your site and write content. You'll find that content is king. :)

Here's to great success with your WA journey and online endeavors!

Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learned to always use the search tab at the top of the desktop, the answer is usually in someone's free training. Type in topic, rather than long question.
There is an answer to just about every question, all you need to do is ask.
Aside from the Certification and Bootcamp courses, there is heaps of extra training. Check out the training classrooms as well as the live events. There are current as well as past events in here. You can find both these tabs on the left-hand side
Start playing with tabs and boxes on your dashboard, there is so much hidden information, just keep looking for it.
Enjoy Wealthy Affiliate. There are lots of people here only too happy to help you along the way with encouragement and helpful tips. Wealthy Affiliate is about training, but that is just a small part of this wonderful community. If you participate as well as train, you will gain so much more.
cheers

Nice to meet you my new friend!

It's me, Roope, here again connecting with you :)

I wanted to drop by personally because I just saw that you updated your profile.

I'm so excited for you that you have found this community!

I was in your shoes a few years ago and so much has happened since then. Here are a few things that will happen to you when you go through the training and put it into action:

-You learn a bunch of new skills
-You are able to connect with awesome and helpful people
-Reach all your financial goals
-Live the lifestyle you have dreamed of

I am 100% sure you will make it because of I and thousands of other people who followed the training have made it as well.

I want to remind that making passive income online doesn't happen by clicking your fingers. You need to take action like you are already doing! :)

I can say from my own experience that all the work is worth it in the end. The freedom to make a full-time income online feels amazing.

To achieve that yourself, follow this training closely: Kyle will give you a more detailed guidance there on how to move forward.

Just wanted to remind that you are not alone here. The whole Wealthy Affiliate community and I are here to help you.

Let's be in touch and always feel free to ask me if you need anything.

Looking forward to your success!

Your friend,

Roope “If I can do it, YOU can do it” Kiuttu

PS. Take a look at the results that I’ve achieved recently: The same is 100% possible to you with a consistent work and effort.

Dear Roope, you know where I could do with some help? Finding my niche. I have pursued my diverging interests in life in time batches, sometimes focussing, mostly combining: music, agriculture, politics. Music meant playing various instrument sin laywomen orchestras, travelling with my violin in my hand, earning my way by plaiyng on trains, alongside roads, getting intersting lifts in the USA, Australia, GB, Norway etc. as hitchhiker, playing in remote areas for people who had never seen a violin, plaing at Christmas for a whole stable of pigs ... agriculture: working as a jillaroo on Australian stations, hunting rabbits and kangeroos, fencing, picking up dead animals from wells, repairing whatever, breaking in horses ... then working for a minister of environment in the press dept., writing his speeches, working in the ministry for a while, feeling totally buried alive, quitting public service after 1,5 years, joining a pioneer company manufacturing loose fill cellulose insulation, being at the spear head of changing the beliefs in building physics, working 16 h/7 days a week to pursue the idea to change the industries. We achieved a lot but in the end the company I worked for was sold, now it does not exist anymore ... there are still manufacturers but the main stream won. I begun renovating a listed building with my then husband and learning from scratch the practical skills of how to turn a ruin into a fairly luxurious home. After about 7 years of 16h/7/350 and one burnout, I drove into a tree, lucky I am alive, struggling with my health since but getting slowly better now after another severe accident 1,5 years ago. In the meantime I maintained the houses, the small farm with my cattle, my sons and my building consultancy business. Then I was bed bound for a few weeks 1,5 weeks ago and took some really stupidcrazyirresponsible decision (head injury) and lost all my savings to a scam in the internet. Not by making the same mistake once but as a total of 3 times. Grrr ... then I thought this is not really good. I could have invested it in buying some land to secure the furute of my small farm, the contract was pending but then I had lost the money and could not buy If I had not lost the money But on the bright side of it: I would have plodded on to scramble away in my daily life wihtout setting higher goals including the hard work it takes to be successful. When I found your Youtube video, at random, searching for some technical videos on how tractors and cars are built, I tried the WA offer and here I am. Long speech, short question. I invested into a new usiness last year which leads me into the necessity to sell .. and not to wait for people to find me at random. A proper cool internet appearance is needed. I think I want to start with that. The next steps after a super enhancing Homepage for my thermal insulation and controlled ventilation business is to help my sons find their niche. When I checked the 17 niche chapters, I could not quite find my place in the list. Any idea of how to proceed? Best wishes, Sabine

Thanks for sharing your story Sabine!

Sounds like you've gone through some tough times recently including accidents and falling into online scams. If you're thinking about buying into new make money online programs in the future, please, do your research carefully before and ask some experienced people here in the community. Then you'll make sure that you'd not fall into scams anymore.

For the niche selection, you should choose something that really interests you. Optimally, you'll stick to the same niche for month or even years to come so it's important that the topic is something interesting to you.

It's also a plus if you already have knowledge on the niche that you choose but of course you can learn everything online so the knowledge is not 100% requirement to get started, your interest in the niche is the most important in my opinion.

You mentioned that you've played violin a lot.

That would for example be a great niche. It's well targeted and it would be quite easy to find tons of great keywords to target on Google.

What do you think about that one or what are the things that interest you the most?

-Roope

PS. 1 tip for the next time. Please, add spaces to your text so it would be easier to read.

Dear Roope,

many thanks for your reply.

Ideally, how do I turn my interest/s into revenue? Choosing a niche comes first. Ok.

I love music but never became an expert enough to teach more than beginners level and decided not to become a professional a long time ago. But maybe thats not the point. The road to success means you chose an activity which interests enough people that they would like to grant you money to share your knowledge insights with, right?

I think once I found my niche and concept the rest will follow on its own. So this "finding phase" is the crucial phase.

And here I feel stuck,have felt stuck for years.

How to come out of this being stuck? Out of the box?

Best wishes, Sabine

Hi Sabine,

thanks for your message!

I don't understand this one: "Follow on its own2 or rather in its wake by being WA affiliate and using the options/opportunities offered within WA."

I highly, highly recommend following Kyle's step-by-step training. It's much easier for you than jumping here and there. In the second lesson he teaches you the money-making process. Take a look at it here: You don't need to be an expert in the niche when you start even though it helps. The Internet is full of information and it's always available for you when you create content. Anyway, if you've performed by playing violin, you most likely know more than 99% of the population about playing violin for example.

I think one key of not being stuck is just doing what is already proven to work. You don't need to re-invent the wheel. Wealthy Affiliate training is proven to work by 1,000's of people all over the world.

In addition, when you choose your niche, I recommend that you take for example 5 blogs and 5 YouTube channels in your chosen niche for following. Then you'll get ideas immediately.

By the way, have you already started Kyle's training? :)

PS. You probably noticed that Wealthy Affiliate provides a Premium Membership for a discounted price during your first 7 days.

I have been myself a premium member on Wealthy Affiliate for ~3 years and I can say with a hand on my heart that it has been certainly one of the best investments of my life.

Nowadays the premium membership generates me +100 times more money than it costs. Having the ability to make money online, has also enabled me to travel around the world and live my dream life.

When I got started on WA, it was just a dream to travel and earn money online at the same time but now it's a reality.

Who knows how your life will change during the coming months? :)

You can see the differences between the free and the premium membership here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/order/signup

Just let me know if you need anything and I'll be happy to help you out!
