About Chazdb
Joined July 2016
I live in New South Wales, "Australia" I am 68 years old
I was a professional driver all my working life, I first got behind the wheel of a car and farm tractor at the age of 6 driving on our family farm.

At the age of 9 my father bought me my first car for 10 pounds which was a 1929 Chevrolet soft top with timber spoke wheels. It was originally Beige and when my father bought it it had faded to a light pink color, He bought it for me so I could drive to the farm entrance gate to meet the school taxi every day. I would have my younger brother and sister with me.

The taxi was a Valiant Station wagon which by the time it had picked up all the children on the run it would be well overloaded with sometimes more that six children in the rear compartment and many times with a child sitting on the floor in the front passenger foot well. This changed in 1962 when a bus was used from then on. I can remember being in the front foot well of the taxi myself on occasion.
The Taxi driver said to my mother years later that every time he saw my car coming he could never see the driver till I stopped and got out.

Professional Driving was my working life until I retired on medical grounds in 2007.
My wife and I were married in 1980 in Cowra in the central west of NSW, We lived in Orange for the first 8 years, we had 1 daughter while in Orange.
My wife was a medical receptionist and I ran the local Driving School which I started in May 1979, and sold the business in August 1988 just before we moved to Port Macquarie.
We lived in Port Macquarie on the NSW central coast for 28 years till 2016 when we decided to move further south to be closer to our daughter and her family.
Through old friends we found out about House sitting, one of our friends had been house sitting for the past 10 years, our friend said she had a sit in a the north eastern suburbs of Sydney which she could not do and would we be interested in doing it for her if the owners agreed and we could see if we liked it. They agreed and we did the sit.
We did like it. Now it is nearly 3 years & 6 months since we started and we are at our 47th house sit.
We look after pets in their own home environment so the owners can go away on holidays knowing that their animals have still got their normal routines
Many pets do not handle being taken out of their home environment. And some owners have not taken holidays in years until they found house sitters to care for their pets at home.
I have looked at affiliate marketing in the past but now am very keen to see the fruits of my work with WA.
The is a great opportunity for those who are regularly on the move like we are.

Hello Charles Over There In NSW And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you may well have come to the conclusion that internet marketing is a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring to the training.
If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 450+ 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.

Have a great day.

Hi Oran, sorry for the slow response, We all have ups & downs in life & that equates to starting a business & trying to make an income. I am here to make a success with WA because living on a pension is not where we want to end up.

Thanks Frank,
sorry I have not been back to you for a while, I have to do some enthusiasm boosting, I know how important it is for me to succeed with WA but at present I have not got my momentum ball to the crest of the hill. Thanks.
FTurner8032 Premium
Love the analogy Charles. Getting your momentum ball the the top of the hill is an important thing for all of us to do. Good Luck to you and God Bless.

Charles, welcome to WA.
It is great to connect with you here.
This is the year for many successes.
You are in the right place to achieve.
Chazdb Premium
Thanks Ken,
I have been in for nearly a year now but have been dormant for the last few months. I had to remind myself of the reasons that I wanted to do make WA work for me for the long term. The benefits of making WA work for me out weigh any reasons I have to procrastinate and obscure my long term vision.
Ken-Pringle Premium
Yes Charles, if your WHY is strong enough
you will have many successes.

Charles, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Charles.

Thanks Kyle,
It has been encouraging to get feedback from others about my sites, it shows me that my sites are improving.
I think I am being a little slack with my choices of Key words, I want things to start happening financially, even if it's only a trickle to start with, To see even a small benefit will be a big boost for me.
I have been in for 6 months now and been a bit up and down along the way, but have put more effort in over the last 6 weeks learning as much as I can, going over and over lessons and some trial and error on site as well.
We are not in the best financial position, only on a pension which I want to get off and have my own income.
Kyle Premium
Good to hear, sounds like you have made some really good progress recently and if you do need a hand with anything at all moving forward let me know and I will be happy to help you out. :)

Thanks Kyle.

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Charles...

Just dropping by to see how you are doing.

Do you need any help with this? It's real easy to do...

Here's a video explaining how to it: Setting up your account is really important because people like to know a little about you before they reach out and connect with you. It shows you are a real person.

Folks here at Wealthy Affiliate are 5x more likely to connect with you and answer any questions you may have if you have completed your profile description.

So go ahead and let us know a bit about you so we can reach out to you and help you achieve your goals. :)
