About DougD
Joined February 2015
Hi

I am located in Bedfordshire, England. I am a self employed courier. I love my business but have been looking at building an additional web based businesses for a while. I left my job as a software developer back in 2000 and was searching for info on what has changed. Well, lots has changed! I decided that rather than go through the traditional route of learning, I would try the community based model of WA to see how I get on.

So far it's been a great experience. I did struggle at first to get the look and feel of my site done properly. I decided to outsource this and it has worked wonders. You can see my site over at www.coffeegrinderz.com.


Good luck everyone.

Best

Doug

Hello Doug,
Welcome to Premium! I've heard being a courier can be dangerous, especially if you're on bicycle. It would be very good exercise however. Being premium will afford you many benefits and lead to your freedom. You know the drill by now, get plugged in, do the trainings, participate in the discussions and ask lots of questions. We're all here for one another. Keep on doing what you're doing and you'll get there!

Have a blessed day!

Hi Doug, and congratulations on going Premium. I went premium in late December. It was the best choice I could’ve made. There is so much education and support in this community. If you ever have any questions, feel free to ask.
As you work towards your goal of making money on line, remember this Les Brown quotes (it helps me aim high): “Shoot for the moon, because even if you miss you miss, you'll land in the stars.”
Here’s to you and your success!

Hi Nuala. Thanks for the follow. I am doing ok with WA. you need patience and hard work but doing ok. Just follow the training and you will do ok. Drop me a message anytime if you need help. Have you decided on a niche yet? Have you got your site up and running yet? Just step through the training to start with and don't get too hung up in chat etc as it will distract you. All The Best, Doug

Newbie47 Premium
Thanks Doug the niche I've chose is fitness I have a website that I would like to promote called metabolic aftershock it's a pretty good programme as I have followed it my self. I have checked it out and it's an affiliate programme I have just set up website but absolutely nothing done with it as I'm in the middle of that particular training. I agree it's so easy to get caught up with the chat. Thank you for the offer of help I probably will take you up on that.

Thank you for following me in ‘Wealthy Affiliate’ Doug
This is one of the very best places I have personally been in years and am sure it is for you too!
Having risen to 256 in the rankings in my fist month, I can assure you that this was achieved solely by following Kyle’s teachings exactly to the word. I would advise anyone who is new to ‘WA’ to just follow what Kyle teaches in his training’s and not try to do it their own way. “Re-inventing the wheel“, I believe it’s called 
I wish you every success in all you are striving for in WA, good luck,
Roger

Hi Chris. Yes it's a real mission. I would rather scout around for decent material than just throw up the first free image I can find. It just degrades the site. In the meantime, I'm just going to carry on building out my content. Hope all is going well. Best, Doug

Doug, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Doug.
