About DougKowal
Joined June 2015
Hi everyone, my name is Doug, I was born and raised in Vernon, BC Canada. after leaving high school (did not graduate) I joined the Canadian Armed Forces (NAVY) after my training I was posted to serve on HMCS MacKenzie, in Esquimalt, BC which is a suburb of Victoria, BC. I spent about 8 years there before I decided to start another career path and was retrained in another job within the Air Force, after training I was sent to CFB Penhold, just outside of Red Deer, AB, spent about 4 years or so there and then was sent to CFB Goose Bay in Labrador, NL for another 2 Years. I then went to CFB Borden, not to far from Winnipeg, MB. This is where I resigned after serving 15 years. I then moved to Vancouver, BC around the last 2 weeks of the EXPO '86. I lazed around for a while, until I found some odd jobs here and there. At one point I was cold calling on businesses, which I kind of liked, but was terrible at closing the sale, lol. Then I started with a security firm in 1993, worked a few Years, then they got a big contract with the airport (which was the first private security firm to have a contract with an airport in North America at that time), It took me about 6 years after they got the contract to finally relent, and start security at the Airport (about the summer of 1999), which I'm still working today! Unfortunately, I suffered a Heart Attack back in March, and as a result I needed Open Heart Surgery. I'm still in the recovery stage from that right now. Hoping to get back to work soon, Hopefully, not for too much longer, once I get my business up and running where my income can be enough to live on, so I can quit my job and go full time in this venture. And try to build some kind of a nest egg for my retirement, which isn't too far away.

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.

Thanks For The Vote Of Confidence. Yea I'm Having Some Problems With How To Leave Links, On Social Media Sites Such As Facebook, Google +, Twitter. What Should I Say? I Also Made A Signature File For My Gmail Account, So Every Time I Send An Email, The Signature Should Show Up With...Start Your Online Business Today, FREE Website And Training... Followed By My Affililate Link. Should I Use This Phrase Again In My Social Media Sites Or Use Something Use, Any Suggestions Would Help, Since I Have NO IMAGINATION, WHAT SO EVER, lol

Welcome Doug, 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. Twenty bucks for you first month of WA is an absolute steal.

☆ ☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 2 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 2-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 2+ 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!
