About DCarpenter1
Joined July 2017
Hello from Bangkok

An update to my BIO

I can't believe I joined in July this year and have been absent from WA so long. I did have other matters to address & now return & hopefully move forward in WA.
I think also I have been guilty of procrastination & the fear of failure. I will start again at the beginning @ course 1 & dedicate time to make things happen.
I know from what I see, WA is a great community & I am here to learn & will ask questions if I need assistance

I am pleased to be back


Hi there,
I have just joined today & look forward to being involved with WA and have so much to learn.

I am so pleased I found WA, as I have muddled around with different online businesses but always afraid to take the next step for concern of failure.
Many successful entrepreneurs have experienced failure & with hard work have recovered.

I am an Australian, living in Bangkok Thailand for approximately fourteen years & a member & past president of the Rotary Club of Patong Beach - Phuket Thailand. Total Rotary years in Sydney & Thailand is thirty three.
I created a Bulletin for the club which is circulated to members & visitors.
The latest edition is number 588!
There are donors from around the world supporting 230 children going to school & providing clean drinking water. Most people take water for granted.

My participation in Rotary has given me confidence that I can achieve if I am willing to work toward my goals.

In my working life I was an Finance Director of a manufacturing company in Sydney & also worked for Unilever in my earlier days
As a retired gent, I want to keep my brain active & at the same time with dedication & perseverance would like to build a successful website on WA

I am looking forward to interacting with the members of WA & develop my own online business

Thanks, Denis, for dropping a message in my profile and adding me to your network. I appreciate it a lot. Instead of replying there, I prefer to reply here.
Wow! You are great helping needy children around the world going to school & providing clean drinking water to them. Very noble indeed. May God bless you and your Club's members.
Glad that now you have the time to network in WA.
All the best and success to you.
DCarpenter1 Premium
Thank you KL for your kind words.
Today in Phuket, 97 children received their certificates for our learn to swim program. Last Saturday these kids gave back & cleaned the Patong Beach - so a Win-Win for all.

Hi Denis, thank you for the follow.
Welcome back... You have some pretty awesome accomplishments to be proud of. Be proud of yourself for admitting where you failed, pull your boots up and get busy with it. Sounds like all you need is a community like WA not only for the amazing training but the support of a caring community of like minded people. You Got This...

Denis, welcome, back!
I, too am a returning champion!
Fear was right! Petrified! I hated to even look at others blogs. It just reminded me, of what I was avaoiding!
That's why I had to make my 21 day challenge to write an hour a day!
I now find time to spends 6-7 hours, not just one.
If, you need a jump start, try a 7 day challenge! I noticed the effect, by day 2!
Best success, Denis!

Hi, there DCarpenter,

Welcome back; I think that the second time around is so much easier because you have a clearer understanding of what to expect.

I can vouch for that, as I am on my second time here at WA, and I have found that my understanding of the training somewhat easier.

My first time here at WA, I was overanxious and wanted to taste success almost immediately; And, when it didn't happen O lost interest.

Because I have had time to reflect, I realized that success will only follow on from hard work.

It's a bit like working in full-time employment, you only get back what you have initially put in from the start.

Starting afresh is good for your soul so just relax and enjoy your journey.

I'll leave you with this little saying:
Every Day Brings A
New Opportunity For you
To Become A Better You.

SucceedBrian Premium

They are jam-packed full of information and training, and there is even some income-earning sites on there which are FREE to join should you desire. You can access them from my profile page.
Should you need any help, the whole community is here in your corner, as I am, so don't be shy to ask.

Kind regards,

Hi Denis and thank you for the follow - also following you in return.
Interesting bio and glad that you have updated it.

I do understand that when you need to address other matters that you need prioritise what matters however being here at WA, the last think you need to fear is of failure.

Even keeping things at a basic level, will certainly keep your mind active and most importantly, be able to explore further if you wish. The added bonus is asking question and have people with a wealth of knowledge in helping you on your path.

Welcome to my network :)

You have done some interesting things. You also live in an exotic spot, to my way of seeing. Do you like Bangkok? It must be an interesting place to live.

Good luck with your business. You can certainly find lots of help here from the community. Give a shout if there is anything I can help you with.

Hi Denis

What brilliant work you and the Rotary Club are doing for those children. As you say most of us take clean water for granted.

Education is also so important as if a person can read and write they have the tools to learn about anything they wish.

Best Wishes
gmcwilliam Premium
Hi Denis, thank you for following me. I am glad to see that you are going to take another shot at WA. My advice is to forget about the possibility of failure and focus totally on creating a successful online business. They say that your mindset dictated your direction, so thinking success is much more beneficial than thinking failure. I wish you all the best with your online business. Gary

Flash4 Premium
Hi Denis,

Isn't it great that you can take your own time to complete this course. I too fall back and forget how to do something. I do take a lot of notes and that does help.

I'm glad you are being enthused again.

Thank you for following me I have followed you back.

Cheers Jae ♫

Good afternoon to you, Denis, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow.I'm following you back.
You will be pleasantly surprised at every lesson that you learn how much easier it becomes to write content for your website and how much clearer you understand how this online world works. I suggest you tune in to the live events that Jay posts every Friday night at 7pm CST..
I look forward to working with you and answering any question you may have. I wish you much success and enjoyment in your online journey.
DCarpenter1 Premium
Thank you Ken & your welcome to WA. I have been stuck in a rut & will reinvigorate myself. So much to learn - however with the WA family the task is made much easier.
Yes Ken I do tune in to Jay's live event - @ 7am here in Bangkok.

Good morning and greetings from the Midwest US,Denis.

You have chosen to follow my network and I came on your profile to learn more of you and your adventures underway here at WA.

It is always a pleasure for me to meet someone residing in another country, as I am all about learning of other cultures and people. It is my goal one day to travel to some of the the places I hear and read about, ( perhaps meeting with other members along the way)
Knowing that I am unable to do it all, I hold this "follow feature" at WA as a close option in that I am still enjoying travel through the push of a button and through others experiences.

So we share a journey you and I, Denis, and through it I hope to become better acquainted by reading your posts in thought and successes

May you benefit in all that you aspire toward and look to sharing that with others...Shine Brilliant!

Respectfully David R.

Hello Denis and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you may have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

AlexEvans Premium
Hi Denis,
Just dropping by to thank you for the follow and also for the opportunity to be part of your network, I hope that your WA experience is going well
DCarpenter1 Premium
Thanks Alex,
I do believe I am over the "hump" of procrastination & finding excuses to not get stuck into actually doing something here on WA.
I am following Kyle's lessons & I am creating my 1,000 + post.

I have been going over some of the lessons & the new WA platform is really helping me. Previously I had to search for things that should have been obvious to me.

AlexEvans Premium
That is so good t hear Dennis, I think the new platform is going to give everyone a boost.

Procrastination can catch us all from time to time if we are aware of what is going on we can take steps to do something about it.

Key is to keep doing something on a regular basis.

Wishing you much success.

Hi Denis,

Just touching base with you for the last time before communication is no longer available in the WA community (which happens the day after tomorrow).

So if you have any last minute questions, or you need a helping hand with anything, please feel free to ask.

Also, I just wanted to mention that I have made my special bonus available to all of my referrals (upon upgrading) regardless of when you upgrade.

Which means, your bonus will be sent to you whenever you're ready to upgrade.

DCarpenter1 Premium
Thanks Frank
I have been missing in action for too long & have now upgraded & want to learn & take action..... back to Get started course 1 ..... & then onward

affilicoach Premium
Congrats on your decision to upgrade.

I'm sure you're gonna love the premium membership and all of the wonderful features you now have available.

If you need a helping hand along the way, be sure to hit me up.

Catch up soon. :)
DCarpenter1 Premium
The upgrade to premium is a bit overwhelming .... so much to learn.
I will ask questions if I need help

Kyle Premium
Hey Denis,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Denis and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

affilicoach Premium
Hey what's up Denis,

When you joined Wealthy Affiliate I mentioned that if you upgraded to premium within the first 7 days that you'd receive my special bonus.

I just wanted to let you know that I have extended the time so that you'll still have access to the special bonus, when if you upgrade within the next 6 days.

Anyway, I hope all is going well for you.

Let me know if you need anything.

If you look through your profile messages from me, you will see a lot of people earning good commissions from affiliate marketing, BUT often the sweetest commissions are the very first ones they make.

This is because it's the first time you really believe that making money online is possible. I look forward to your success.
affilicoach Premium
What's happening Denis, just following up to see if you need a helping hand with anything.?

Just hit the reply button below and holla back when you get a chance.

In the meantime, you might be interested is some of the results fellow members are getting from using the training in WA.

I hope you are enjoying the training and making some wonderful progress! Please do touch base with me if you ever need a hand with anything or are feeling stuck, I am here to help. :)

If you're still not sure whether it is possible to make money with the training in Wealthy Affiliate then these posts might be interesting. Talk soon.

affilicoach Premium
I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)
affilicoach Premium
Welcome Denis, to Wealthy Affiliates and thanks for accepting my invitation to check it out.

There's a lot to learn here, the best place to start would be the level 1 certification course. So start with the first lesson by clicking on the link below. Be sure to create a profile and add a picture, that way you'll get lots of help from all the peeps in WA. You'll find out how to do this in the getting started link above.

Sadly some people don't even get this far, for some unknown reason.

If you can do this, (i.e.) follow simple instructions, (implementing as you go), soon you will be on your way to making your first sale.

And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/affilicoach or by private message if you are a premium member.

There are a ton of other features you have access to right now, but they are explained in your main training linked above. Your #1 job right now is to get to lesson 1!

★ ★ ★ Access Your Bonuses! ★ ★ ★

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff from me.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership.

☆ ☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 5 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 4-Part-Series Live Case Study webinar. It's video series where a professional internet marketer creates a complete 'niche website'. All steps are included and thoroughly explained, including research, rank, content creation and monetization. Total length of the videos is 4+ hours

This will give you a broad overview of the type of site you will create on Wealthy Affiliate. I think it's always a good idea to know the direction you are headed before you start your journey.

Please feel free to ask questions in the community through live chat or the Getting started classroom above. Or as I mentioned before, hit me up anytime you want in WA.

Anyway, I know you'd be eager to have a browse around so I'll let you get your feet wet.

Best of luck, and don't forget you can always ask me for help!

DCarpenter1 Premium
Thank you Frank
I am just finding my way around this incredible WA & amazed at the help available to all
I am a bit "shy" & hopefully will not take long to get the bit between my teeth & really move ahead .
An old saying which I do believe in

If it is to be it is up to me

Thanks Frank
affilicoach Premium
Sure no problem Denis. :)

I understand the shyness thing, as I'd rather just keep to myself (mostly), but the people in here are a great bunch of people. Real friendly, maybe over friendly at times, haha, but good intentions.

Anyway, I look forward to your journey.
