About Bobbybub
Joined April 2014
I have been here at WA for 5 months now, and thought I would update my profile.

I really enjoy the concept of WA. I am amazed at the body of data available here and the knowledge of WA members who are always ready and willing to help out. People here are really great!

If you are willing to invest in yourself, put in the time and trouble to learn and apply the lessons here, you will go where you want to be.

It's really up to you, and yes, you are sitting alone in front of your computer thinking, can I really do this? Well, get off your A-- and find out!

Time to see if you have the heart and soul, the balls to succeed. If not? Well, better luck next lifetime sweetpea.

DO put in the time and trouble. BE successful in your life because you took responsibility for your life and didn't depend on anyone else. Then you can HAVE what you want to have. This is the classic BE-DO-HAVE scale found in the book "The One Minute Millionaire".

Sorry folks, you can't HAVE all your money and stuff until you DO what you need to DO and BE who you need to BE to succeed. Pretty Basic, but very powerful.

WA is a dream for anyone who has run a business OFFLINE (not on the internet). No payroll to meet, no inventory headaches. No accounts receivable. No worries about rent, leases, federal,state,local, and other taxes, shoplifting, damage to property, none of the employee nightmares and all the myriad of problems that just aren't there. Plus it is dirt cheap.

After you do all the above, this is what you can expect. 95% of all small business OFFLINE fail in the first year, and 95% of those who make it the first year fail in the next 3 years. I don't know about you, but I think those odds SUCK.

As far as money outlay, Are you doing any of the above here?

I thought not. Beginning to see how cheap and easy WA really is COMPARED to your other options?

WA makes it as easy as they can. Everything is laid out in small easy to manage lessons. If you get stuck, just ask anyone! Can we say business school? What is tuition now days for business college? Whatever it is, are you paying more here? I thought not.

There will be times when you are going to feel like you just can't do it. You will run into a stone wall, just can't figure out something. Life is going to throw you a curveball. You are going to want to give up. Do you think you are the first? The last? It happens to everyone.

I don't have a magic formula for you here. If you grit through it and keep trying, you will more then likely get through it. If not? Give up. Make excuses. Cry. Pout. Throw stuff and curse. That's what I do. Blame Kyle or Carson. Blame Me. Blame anyone you want. Then get back to work.

I usually give up a couple of times a week myself. Welcome to the club. Generally the guy or gal that fired you (that's you) will hire you back. With no wage increase or vacation pay. What did you expect? A free lunch? At least you like your boss.

Why are you still here? Quit reading my stuff and go make your own. Maybe I'll come by and read your work.

I might even like it and tell you so..

I'm pulling for you sweetheart.

Thank you Sir! Indeed, the truth shall set you free. Yes , if you start to slip brother, talk to me, I will give you a kick in the pants and a batter up to keep swinging. I know you'd do the same for me.

After 22 years of being a business owner, not much worse can happen to you here. You will soon be showing us all a thing or two!

Learning the operating end of wordpress and the technical stuff was difficult for me, still is, and might be the same for you too.

Once you get past that, it is business as usual. except ole James has his smiling face and ready wit out there 24-7 for all to see and read. An just think, you don't have to pay any overtime!

I look forward to your success! .

Sent you a private message.

The correct American slang is, "You have turned into a wallflower" meaning you are not interesting and unattractive as well, like the wall behind you. This is archaic slang,, hasn't been used for around 30 years or more, but we still get it.

Of course in your case this is very humorous. LOL

What a great story and a great outlook! I especially like "being poor is a state of mind but being broke is just temporary" - this is so true!

Sometimes you win and sometimes you learn. You only lose if you don't learn something! Wow. I heard the other day "The best way to success in business is by being in business". In other words, just by keeping moving forward you constantly change and learn new things.

Great to be connected with a wacky American! : )

haha! I look forward to your progress!

All the best

Hi Sheilakay, what kind of chickens do you have? I have raised Leghorns, Rhode Island Reds, Wyandottes and Black sexlinks

My last Black sexlink followed me everywhere, Her name was General Lee, cuz you never knew where she was, and she could escape any henhouse or fence. Gave my last batch to a needy farmer a few months ago.

It looks like you're moving along very nicely, Byron! I see you have your profile all setup and hopefully you've been engaging with the community a bit!


I'd love to get to know you and your income goals better so that I can do my best to set you up for success. Would you mind taking a minute to chime in and share here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started/what-are-your-money-goals


I keep a pretty close watch on that thread (and so do the co-founders of Wealthy Affiliate, Kyle and Carson), so posting your income goals there will give us a much better idea of what we can do to help you!


And of course, let me know if there's anything I can help you with Byron :)

Hey Byron! I wanted to start you off with a quick note that could SIGNIFICANTLY impact your success with Wealthy Affiliate. Read this entire message if you are serious about being successful in internet marketing (it's lengthy, but I'm not joking when I say that this advice could make or break your entire internet marketing career):


1) You'll need to work consistently and hard. There's going to be a lot to learn in the beginning and you may feel overwhelmed at a point, but keep pressing forward and you'll make it through. It happened to me and every other successful internet marketer at some point, and the only way to become successful in this industry is to push past that overload whenever you get there.


Do yourself a favor and commit to a number of hours that you can work each week right now. It doesn't have to be massive, but it should be more than 10 between evenings and weekends at least. Just remember the more you work each week, the faster you'll learn and draw closer to success.


After you've picked the number of hours you can work each week, commit to working that much for AT LEAST six months - a year would be better. You won't see results immediately in this industry, and being consistent is the key. Pick a number of hours you can work each week, then work those hours for at least six months. It's something you've probably never done in this industry, and this advice alone will make a HUGE difference in your chances at succeeding with internet marketing as long as you take it seriously and STICK WITH IT.


2) I recommend starting off with this training (which you can access with your free account): https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1


It just scratches the surface of the MASSIVE amount of helpful content in WA, but you'll get a good "feel" for the teaching style here and begin to see the power of all of the great things they're teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate.


3) DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE COMMUNITY. Two of the best places you can go to for help when you get stuck are the "Live Chat" and the "Classrooms" sections located on the panel to your left. You'll find direction and inspiration through the community here, which is one of the reasons I recommend WA so highly.


4) Finally, you don't ever have to upgrade to the premium account here at Wealthy Affiliate if you don't want to. You'll have limited access using your free account for as long as you wish. HOWEVER, if you're serious about internet and affiliate marketing then you should invest in the premium membership for AT LEAST one month. You could look back on it years from now and see it as a pivotal moment in your internet marketing career, but you never will if you don't at least give it a try.


Check it out for a few days though - you don't need to upgrade right now. Make sure it's a good fit for you, and if you upgrade within the first 7 days you'll receive your first month's membership at more than 50% off. I keep my membership active and recurring every month so I can be here for the people I refer like you, so realize that I'm putting my money where my mouth is here!


On top of that, if you upgrade to a premium membership at the discounted rate within the first 7 days I have a special bonus EXCLUSIVE to people that join WA through me and upgrade within the first week of creating their free account. This bonus will show you how to be twice as successful with WA or any other legitimate internet marketing program out there and gives you some very valuable video lessons (which I recorded for you personally, of course) to ensure you get off to the right step in your internet marketing business.


I keep a close watch on the list of people that upgrade from starter to premium, so I'll send the bonus your way within 24 hours. If you upgrade and don't receive it within that time frame for some reason, just post on my WA profile and let me know!


I don't offer that bonus so you'll spring for the membership and make me more money, I offer the bonus just in case you needed that tiny "push" to make sure you invest in this training because I know that you will use for the rest of your IM career and it could change your life. I've referred hundreds of people now and I have NEVER had anyone tell me they were dissatisfied.


Best of luck to you! You're about to embark on a journey that could change your life forever, so make sure you take it seriously, put in the time and effort, and expect great things in return!


You know where to find me,
Ian Pribyl
