About Bobaye
Joined June 2013
My name is Gregory Ivan Adam - my first nickname is Bobby while my second N/N is Unkah Bahb - I will be turning 79 this year and I hope to be earning good money by the time I am 80 !!
My hobby is building model ships - finished the last one three months ago and I put that hobby on hold until I am earning some money - I need to - am residing in Klerksdorp, North West Province of South Africa !!
Most of my working life I've been in sales - first motor cars and then property - I've written four books but none of them published yet - two of them are Sci-Fi !!
My wife is still with me but needs a serious back operation - we reared nine children one of whom died from cancer 11 years ago - he was a lovely boy and had just turned 38 - we all loved him very much !!
Of the other eight, seven are married and have given us 16 grand children of which have given us six great grand children !!
One family stays in Canada, three in Australia and the rest spotted over South Africa - two and a half years ago I spent Nov, Dec and Jan with my son and his family in Canada - had my first "White Christmas" in my life - enjoyed it very, very much - the day before I flew back to SA the temp was mins 28 degrees !!
Really glad to have come across W/A and joined - am looking forward to an upright way of earning money on the internet - the SCAMMERS have cost me too much - they're a bunch of liars and deceivers - fortunately my bank's fraud department are aiding me in recovering my losses - one Scammer owes me $5000 in commissions and refuse to answer my emails - I mean, that's a lot of money to throw away - anyway thank you Kyle, Carson and all your teams of lovely people I'm gonna make it !!

G'day , Bobby! With your sales background, you should do well here. Yes, you look remarkable young and healthy - but your website came up as "Not Found" ?? I hope that your wife's operation is a success - it's a delicate area. Yes, the scammers have a lot to answer for - I've been taken in as well, although not to your extent. Despite swatting them away like flies, I still get a flood of scammers & spammers telling me I've earned thousands in accounts I don't even have! This is a great community, where you will be made welcome! :) george

Hey, hey, September is just around the corner - a very important month in my and my large family's lives !!

In 1981 I bought three time-share weeks (different chalets) at a resort in the bush-veld known as Dikhololo, just north of a town called Brits - at that time our family was only 11 strong - these weeks started on the last Friday (39th week of the year) in September - as our family grew over the years we have acquired another two chalets and since 1981 we all get together in that week at what we know call "Dikkies week" !!

Last year most of our overseas families joined us and we were 36 people in all - so far, three of our overseas families have emailed us to say they will not be joining us at Dikkies this year (and that's nine people) !!

It's actually very well organised - each year one member takes charge of all the arrangements and organizes where they all will sleep - in which chalets and in which bedrooms - also which family is responsible for arranging and preparing each meal each day - except of course breakfast which is prepared by each family separately for themselves at any time they want to eat (I suppose that would depend on how late they each went to bed the night before) !!

This year September will be the 33rd year of Dikkies where we all get together and have a wonderful time with each other !!

My wife, being due for a serious back operation (has an appointment with the neuro-surgeon o 13th August) we are not sure whether she and I will be going - it all depends on the date of the operation and how well she recovers - if not, it will be the first time in 33 years that both of us will not be at Dikkies with nearly all our family !!

I'm telling you all about this because this is how I feel among you - you are like family to me and if I miss Dikkies this year, no problem, I'll have you as a family and I know I can contact any one of you at any time I want to - I am really and truly blessed !!

Thnx guys and gals

luv U all very much

Gregory, Bobby, or Unkah Bahb

Hi Julie, thnx for all those wise and lovely words !!

Ask you dad if he has built a model of that famous American gunship "Constitution" !!

I have, and what a wonderful experience, 64 guns on board including the few in the bow and the stern !!

I like to think of that one being the 2nd most interesting model ship I have built - the one that takes top place is the nuclear aircraft carrier the "USS Enterprise with its 48 aircraft on deck - small planes not even two centimeters long and I had to build and paint them all !! What an experience !!

I've not thought of what you suggest about using my hobby as a niche - I'll give it some "thinking" and see if it will work, thnx !!

I am full of hope and expectations here at W/A and I know that Kyle and Carston are genuine people !!

Nice to hear from you !!

Greetings "Unkah Bahb"... my father builds models of the old "tall ships"... large sailing vessels. They are so detailed, down to the cannons ... and so beautiful. he and his father built a real life size house boat... took almost 2 years... I'll never forget the day we took it on it's maiden voyage... It was actually sea worthy... we were all amazed it didn't sink... was such a great day!

Now to the Business of WA... My first thought is, your niche... You could possibly turn your hobby into an online business of sorts... you could sell unassembled model boats... boat clothing, maritime collectibles, books... all related to your hobby and your knowledge. You could also also write articles about the boats you build... have instructional videos, etc... be the resource for "all things model boats... become the authority on the subject...:) I say this just to get your thought process going as to the possibilities to explore.

I have watched this place transform and evolve into the best environment for learning Online Marketing during this time. If you want to learn how to build an online business correctly, you are in the right place. The WA business community is truly unique and filled with so many knowledgeable people with such a variety of experiences and capabilities. There is a huge army of members with knowledge more than willing to help you... all you have to do is ask... sometimes you will get quick response, some times not... be patient, you may have to ask again. Live chat is a great place to begin the questions process.

Great business foundations take time to build, a piece and day at a time. Be patient, it does not happen in a week, May not happen in a month. but it does happen. WA provides the tools and the education.... the members and founders provide the needed support and help...it is up to you use what you learn (which will be a lot) and create opportunity for yourself.

Thank You for following me and I look forward to seeing you create something great in the coming months. Julie

You've led an eventful life, Bobby! Welcome to WA, where, with some hard work, dedication and patience, you can recoup that lost money. Did you say -28 degrees? That's cold, even by Kansas City standards! Wishing you all the best here at WA. :-)

I guess I don't understand what you are asking, I am just another person in this network and don't have access to that level of the WA site. Kyle or Carson should be able to check on any issues you are having with your account here.

Welcome to WA Gregory. If you have the patience ( a wonderful virtue) to build model ships, you do indeed have what it takes to make it online. I may be assuming you are referring to EN, or similar "business" in your profile. I am sorry you are having to go through some hassle in this area. Rest assured, you are in safe hands here with Kyle, Carson and many wonderful caring people here at WA. I wish you and your wife blessings, and don't dare give up on getting those books published!
Reply
bobaye Premium
Thnx AnnieB for your kind words - the problem with the conventional publishers these days is that they will only publish books written by well-known authers - the "newie" publishers want me to pay for them to do the job - one of them wanted ZAR42 000 from me - so I have decided to earn some "Cash" and publish them myself !!
I wish you blessings as well - Thnx once more !!
