About Brandview
Joined November 2012
My name is John Barnard...

Have travelled around the sun 67 times and in November 2020 I hope to complete my 68th round...

I used to stay in sunny South Africa...

At present, I am married, have a daughter, three sons, four grandsons and a granddaughter...and two more coming!

Had my own businesses in South Africa... numerous properties... and a farm... and all the frills... then came the depression...lost it all

Moved to Bedford UK in March 2013...

Am at present a domiciliary carer...

I believe that Internet Marketing is my best and only commercial opportunity for setting up my pension... at present I have none...

Wealthy affiliate is helping me to stand on solid ground again while I do so...

Thanks for the offer Shannon... don't even know how to PM yet... is this it?
ShannonSB Premium
You are very welcome - and I truly mean it!! You can ALWAYS come to me for help and assistance. And no-sorry this is not PM. If you look at the top of this page on the left side you will see a box that says private message. That's a PM - you would just click on my name and go to my profile page and hit the private message box and you could then send me a private message that is only between the two of us - this is a feed and the whole community can see it. At any rate, if you ever have any questions, comments, or concerns, or get stuck - I'm happy to help - just let me know. It's the one thing on WA that really makes me feel good is when I can help people - so I mean it - ANYTIME!!!
Best wishes,
Brandview Premium
Thanks Shay!...cool name... okay!... read a bit about your beginnings here at WA... you seem to be a rather busy body... but you know what they say!... if you really need some some help, ask a busy person...

Thanks for the PM clarification... don't think I need to ask any questions "In the Dark"... so I'll just ask here and let everybody realise how much I need the help!...

Okay, so let me get my first goal on the plate... I need to know the best and fastest way to get my first ten recruits!... because at a 30% retention rate... at Premium level... I will have my WA venture paying for itself!...

Once that happens I will start building my pension plan!...

Thanks for your audience...

My advice - follow Kyle's lessons - get that website built as quickly as possible - and find some members. Word of mouth works too! But you will still need a website for them to go to - so first step are your lessons and building! Best of luck to you!
Brandview Premium
Yup!... just as I thought... the slow way is the fastest way! ... oh! well back to the lessons...

Thanx Shay...
Have a great day!...

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! I've been waiting for you to get here!

My name is Jennifer - also known as PotPieGirl here online.

I'm very excited for you as you begin your internet marketing journey to success!

There may be times that you will feel overwhelmed and/or confused. Rest assured, that is totally natural. You are taking charge of your future and that's a BIG deal - and something you should be very proud of.

Please be patient with yourself as you work through the training - and ask for help when you need it.

If you need any help, try these options:

1. Live Chat - On the right side of your main dashboard here in WA, there is an on-going stream of live chat discussions. Have a question? Just ask in the chat box.

And hey, don't be shy - say hello!

2. The Forum. WA has a GREAT forum! There is a wealth of info in the tons of existing posts - or you can start a new thread to ask your question.

3. Stop by my personal space here on WA and leave a message:


Don't forget to click the green button to "Follow Me" - that way we can keep up!

Also, down the LEFT side of your dashboard are 3 very important areas that you should make a point to read as soon as you join.

It's under 'Recommended Training' and the titles are:

-Warm Welcome
-Your First 10 Days
-Learn How WA Works

These will all be super helpful as you learn to navigate everything WA has to offer you.

As someone who started all this knowing NOTHING, I can tell you first-hand from 5+ years of experience that it is a jungle out "there" (outside the walls of Wealthy Affiliate).

Please know that when you are here INSIDE this exclusive community, that you are safe and have all you need to grow your online business to whatever level YOU choose.

I've been here in WA since July 2008 - joining Wealthy Affiliate was the BEST decision I've made. I feel sure you will realize the same as you learn and work to make YOUR dreams come true.

I wish you all the best and remember -

It's not how fast you get there - it's how long you stay.

To YOUR Success!
