About Cooldad
Joined November 2013
Hi folks,

I’ve joined WA again and I think it’s time to update my profile.

English is not my first language so I can’t put everything in words in a way I would like to. I’ll do my best, though.

As I said before, it’s my second time here. To make a long story short - I joined WA in Nov. 2013, did nothing with it (for many reasons) and quit my paid membership. In Nov. 2015, I joined WA again and went for a yearly membership.

My name is Janus. I live and work in the Netherlands (love this country). I’m happily married for 23 years and have two gorgeous daughters.

I have a “good" job, me and my family don’t have to go hungry and I’m certainly better off than many fellow members out there. I’m grateful for this.

So, why did I join a program like Wealthy Affiliate?
Because my job has many disadvantages as well. Too many to list them all here.

It took me probably 30 years and a small fortune to get where I am now but I wouldn’t hesitate to quit it tomorrow (and never look back) if I knew today that I can be successful online.

I can’t even tell you how much I’ve already missed in my life because of my day job. I almost can't remember the time when my kids were younger and that time’s never gonna come back. It brings tears to my eyes when I think about it.

My wife and our daughters make my life worth living. I wanna spend as much time as possible with them but I definitely won’t be able to do so if I keep my job. I turned 50 a few weeks ago and the ticking of the clock’s getting louder.

I’m not an absolute beginner when it comes to all the "internet stuff”. I have been online for years. Wealthy Affiliate is THE place to be if you wanna be successful online. I’ve seen a lot, I have been scammed numerous times and I've came across all the scam artists so I know what I’m talking about.
Wealthy Affiliate and our community is very unique and amazing!

I’m taking this “WA thing” very seriously. I’m making "baby steps” at the moment because of my biggest problem I have - lack of time. I’m absolutely aware of the fact that I won’t get anywhere at this pace so I’m working on a solution already. I got some experience in coding and computers in general. I’ve been working with Wordpress for a while, so I don’t have to learn everything from scratch.

With my little experience and the help from Kyle, Carson, Ian (my referrer) and the fantastic community I’m sure I will finally reach my goal. I, on my part, will do my best to contribute to this community as much as I can.

Talk soon…

Cheers,
Janus

I am now one of your Followers, Janus. Saw your post on JD's blog. I see you have been here a while, but it looks like you haven't been very active. Only one blog, and no websites listed. Is there something we can do to help? I sense that you want to do a lot more and just don't know where to start. Have you gone through the training here. already? If not, that's the best place to begin. Either hit that green Get Started Here button, or else go right for the Affiliate Bootcamp. Come on, man - you GOT this!
(Hey, sorry if I sound overly enthusiastic.)

Hi Hal, thanks for the kind words, the offer to help and for being enthusiastic. I really appreciate that.
I'm one of your followers, too. Regarding my membership here, let's make a long story short: I joined in Nov. 13th, did nothing (whatever the reasons were) and quit my paid membership (my WA rank was like 6000+ then). I wanted to re-join as a free member but it was not possible. In Nov. 30th 2015, I re-joined as a premium member (yearly). So, actually I'm a member since Dec. 2015.
This is my "real birthday" here.
The training is really great and I do see the real potential. The reason I'm making "baby steps" is the lack of time (as you see, it took me 4 days to respond to your post). All the technical stuff doesn't scare me, I have some experience in coding and computers in general. It's the lack of time that I'm concerned about. However, I'm glad to be here and I'm sure that WA's gonna help me to move forward.
I wish you all the best!
Cheers,
Janus

P.S.
keep being enthusiastic :)

Hello Janus, Welcome! Nice to meet you, I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start I have written trainings for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under trainings (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.

Hey Janus, I was just scrolling over a few things in my dashboard and saw that you signed up a few days ago but haven't completed your profile yet. Is there anything I can help you with? I hope you've at least enjoyed a little bit of the content and community that's come together here!


If you get a couple of minutes, completing your profile will help you get A LOT more out of Wealthy Affiliate. People are much more likely to interact and engage with you if they can feel that personal connection, so just keep that in mind if you plan on pursuing affiliate marketing and engaging with this community!


Also, here's a free lesson I put together on the 5 Rules for Succeeding in Affiliate Marketing: http://youtu.be/p3iYfoy4SOQ


That will take less than 5 minutes to watch, and should be VERY helpful as you continue pursuing affiliate marketing.


Best of luck to you and, again, let me know if I can answer any questions you have!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Janus!

I wanted to stop by and officially welcome you to WA and ask you if you have any questions about getting started?

We have every tool, training resource, and support channel to help you build a thriving online business and I am personally here to help you succeed.

The "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)" course is my suggestion on where to get started and you will find this on your dashboard or within the main menu:
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1

I hope to get a chance to work with you soon :)

pribs Premium
Hey Janus! 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
