About Davekirby
Joined December 2009
Hi ,

I am based in the United Kingdom with my wife Karen and two children Nicola (25) and Liam (22). My day to day business is as a computer consultant which I have been doing for too many years to remember but which I still enjoy and still throws up the odd challenge every now and then.

My day to day passion though is triathlons which I have now been doing for the past 15 years and a few years back completed my first Ironman. This has given me an insight to what can be achieved through hard work but also what is possible from scratch and I have gradually become involved in groups where I have helped others in getting started in swimming, cycling, running or hopefully all three.
It is a great feeling to see someone get that look in their eye that they "can do this" and then kick on. It has been life changing for some and certainly has been something that I am passionate about and gives me satisfaction to see.

Now that the children have left home it has given me the to to decide what I would like to do for the next few years and internet marketing has been on the radar for some years, so now is the time to take some serious steps. I feel I have come to the right place and will be looking to build my business around my passion for triathlon and also about being healthy and general well-being, and also in helping others find the right advice and hopefully the right products that will help them progress in their own right.

So, looking forward to getting things started.

Nice to connect with you Dave, I am looking to start professional triathlon myself but struggling with time and resources, will start soon though

Davekirby Premium
Hi, Yes time & resource is an issue, time management is key. I tend to train early morning mostly which leaves the rest of the day free. This is not a sell or anything but a great book for training and time management is Don Fink's BeIronFit.

Fine thanks. I have not done much since 2009, been busy on other projects. But now seems the right time to pick this up again and to do things properly.

You have come to the right place. Just take it slow and you will succeed. If you have any expertise start thinking about that in terms of programs, software, and things to promote. I have turned a profit after only two months in WA. I specifically have increased my art website traffic, feedback, and sales. Without doing any more than just suggesting my site as a cool place to go and look at some art..I have made several sales to my 300+ network of buddies here at wealthy affiliate. So with that said it is good to be active in the forum. Do not just promote stuff to your buddies. Just welcome them to WA and be helpful with them and good things will be returned to you.
Anyway, I am rambling so I wish you well. Brian.

Welcome to WA. I wish you well in your endeavors. You are welcome to ask for advice if you need it. I would be more than happy to answer questions if you have them. WA can be a bit overwhelming, so I would suggest being patient and take it all in slowly. I am an artist myself. I am Brian from Oregon, USA.
