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…

Financial freedom and quiting the day job are my long term ambitions. Do commit to going through the training regularly and not too much watching TV.

Hi Janus, welcome to WA. Thanks for following back! Hope that we can connect more often and learn from each other. Feel free to visit my new websites and leave a comment on my site if you can. Wish you success!

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:

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

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

P.S. I know I've thrown A LOT of information your way in this message, but I wanted to give you one last thing. Here is a video tour of the members' area to help ensure you get the most out of your free membership as possible: http://youtu.be/NDmMcMtMB8c

Sorry for sending so much your way at once, I just want to set you up for success as much as I possibly can!
