About Dch1959
Joined February 2014
Dennis here. Myself and my wife Lark own and operate a cattle and row crop farm in rural Missouri. I also own a tire sales & repair shop in our hometown about 10 miles away.
July 24 2013 changed my whole world when after collapsing in our bedroom floor from a pulmonary embolism spending 9 days in a coma I am now unable to do the physical work I was used to.
So I have turned to the internet looking to start an online business I can operate from the comfort of my recliner. I look forward to becoming part of the WA community. Thanks for reading.

June 23 2014
I have been here 4 months now, and decided i would update my profile a little.
Looking back, i have accomplished a lot since i first wrote my original profile.
On a personal level, my health has improved greatly. When i first joined WA i was very weak physically and somewhat out there mentally. Now i am back to doing my own farm work, and although i get tired faster than i used to, i have came a long ways from where i was. I still have some neurological problems and most likely always will have, but nothing that i can't deal with. These are mainly memory and nerve damage.

As far as Wealthy Affiliate, i have also made some great progress. I have 2 websites that i try to make 1 post each, every week, and so far i am keeping that goal. My traffic continues to rise, and although i have no sales yet, i know they will come in time, if i stay the course. I really enjoy blogging so staying the course is really easy for me.

I also really enjoy WA! The training and community here are really great and have been a godsend to me.
Finding WA, when i did during my recovery, has been a major help in my rehab with my mental capacities. Also helped keep me occupied.

Well, enough rambling for now, Thank You WA, and to everyone here!

My name is Holly, I am Dennis's daughter. I am sadden to inform you that my father, Dennis passed away on August 4th while out checking his cattle with his wife. We believe a blood clot went to his brain and that he went fast and I like to believe that he did not know what was happening in his last few minutes. I know how much WA mean't to him and that he had made several friends on here. Thank you to everyone who supported him on his journey with WA, I know it mean't a lot to him.

Thank you for your time
Holly

Hi Dennis & thanks for the return follow.Glad to read you are much better since your illness, & that things are moving along okay for you with WA.I am just getting started here & struggling to do all this computer stuff i know nothing about.I tend to get frustrated,a bit discouraged,& impatient at times,thinking i may be in over my head & should give it up.Then i remind myself why i am doing this,& go back at it & pray things will get much better in at least 1-3 months.And just for chit-chat,my name is Dennis & my ex-wife's name is Lark.Small world,Huh?Take care & wish you the best always.
Reply
dch1959 Premium
Wow, it is a small world! Lark is an unusual name to begin with, sorry about the ex part though.
I think the most important thing you can do is to just follow the lessons and tasks step by step and don't skip ahead, that will overwhelm you for sure.
Take one task, complete and understand it before moving on,and if you get stuck just let us know what your stuck on and myself or someone will help you out.
That is what is so great about WA, it's like one big family helping each other out. I am amazed at what i know and can do now compared to when i started. I was just like you....i knew very little about computers.
Don't stress just have fun and remember every task and every step you master is one step closer to success.

Dennis! God bless you and your wife! You give me encouragement to stay the course. I, too, am disabled and on disability. My goal is to make enough money helping people that I can tell the government I no longer need their assistance with Medicare, that my husband can retire from his job and we can find a nice, quiet place to live and have family visit. You truly are an inspiration. Best to you and your wife! Margot

Thank You Margot, this will be a journey and not happen overnight so yes stay the course and don't give up. I try not to get impatient with my online business and make sure i do something every day to improve it,write content,etc. God bless you and your family also!

I was reading about farming life today. I noticed this sentence and wondered if you would like to correct the two errors in it on your website page!

Have a great day, kiss a goat for me, I enjoy those little critters - maybe an assignment better left to the grand children, eh?

I love your website, I can't wait to read more! I grew up on a 5 acre farmette and we had horses and sheep and chickens, but never cows or goats. My goal is to one day have a small farm (no more than 15 acres) of primarily horses, but also goats, chickens, ducks and whatever animals my kids beg me to get. =)

Hi Dennis,

Welcome to WA! As you are just new to the community I'd like to take this opportunity to say hello and let you know that I am here to help you get started.

I've helped 1000's of people over the years build thriving online businesses and the Wealthy Affiliate platform will provide you the tools and training to succeed as well.

Kyle, myself, and many other very helpful people hang out at WA and are always willing to lend a hand.

If you have any questions I suggest using the Live chat as you will get answers very quickly. Or you can ask questions within tutorials, blogs, or directly to other members on their Spaces.

Here is the initial training that I suggest you get started with:

I look forward to working with you.

Hi Dennis, Nathaniell here. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started.

Before you start making money, there are just two things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. Watch this video here to learn how to maximize your community reach in WA https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/completing-your-account-set-up-at-wa-adding-a-description-image

More buddies means more support. More support means more success.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button or just click this link https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1/getting-rolling. Remember that you can ask any questions you want in live chat, on your personal blog, or in the Getting Started Classroom here https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started

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/nathaniell or by private message if you are a premium member.


★ ★ ★ How To Access Your Exclusive 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.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership. Twenty bucks for you first month of WA is an absolute steal. This is available to all members. But I've lined up some other things which are a bit more exclusive.


☆ ☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 3 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 3-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. Total length of the videos is about 3 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.


☆ ☆ Bonus #2: Exclusive Look at The Top 5 Newbie Mistakes And How To Fix Them

Some questions get asked over and over again. It's very likely you have these same questions.

This is a two-part bonus. It includes an exclusive video not available to other WA members where I create a website EXACTLY how the training teaches you. Many new members don't follow the instructions properly and can't get their sites to work. Watch this video first, and you'll be up and running in 20 minutes with your own .com hosted here on WA.

I have also included 5 newbie website design and setup tips. These are super easy ways to turn your site from a basic Wordpress install into a streamlined canvas ready for action, and ready to impress your traffic.

This means you will be able to bypass these typical mistakes, get started faster, and on the right foot. This is an exciting time - you are building the foundations of a profitable online business, and I want to help you get started as quickly and smoothly as possible.
