About Douron
Joined September 2019
Hi All,
Thanks for the opportunity to become a part of this group, I will give you an insight into who I am and a little about my loving family also. I am originally from New Zealand, moved to Australia a little over 10 years ago, met my wife Coby (who was actually born in Anaheim, USA) and we had two awesome kids, Silas and Sacha, I also have a free spirited son who lives in New Zealand, Tiare, who has just turned 21!!

Both Coby and I spent a number of years travelling prior to meeting each other. We had very active lifestyles and always worked in fast paced environments. We actually met each other thru an online dating service and it was not long before our first child together came into the picture. This slowed our fast paced lifestyle down and we found ourselves a nest to settle into. Number two came fairly quickly too.

Our children are now 8 and 10, we’ve been comfortable but also at times struggled through parts of life, and like many do I’ve been told. Lately I have been thinking a lot about change and at what point I believe I want to be so as my family is going to be catered for, looked after and has something solid in their lives. My wife and I have also begun to think about relocating to the USA (to be closer to her family) and this brings up questions of what it is we would like to do with our time there as well as what is going to be our income source.

This all made me think, what is something that we can do to make this happen? What is it we like to do? What is something we are passionate about? What skills and knowledge do we have that could become a source of sustainability? What is something that is popular and in demand currently? This is when I decided that I needed to look no further than what Coby has been investigating, learning and implementing herself for the past year, and it works, works amazingly well.

As I earlier mentioned, Coby and I had very fast paced lives and kept ourselves healthy and fit in our years prior to starting our family, but these things slowly fell by the way side and it took a number of years before we really took a hard look at ourselves and knew we needed to change such aspects as our diet, exercise, mentality and well-being. We both took to exercise as the initial solution but in a nutshell, while we felt better initially, the results we were both looking for did not eventuate. This consequently led to more investigation and research and even a few Netflix shows about different diets and healthy food options, healthy life options.

So, a year on and a lot of research, trialing and using both the kids and myself as guinea pigs also, has resulted in amazing results and happiness from us all. This is where my idea was born, would there be others that would benefit from the information that we have already acquired? Can I make this into something that could benefit us financially? Which has bought me to this point in life.

Success is very cumulative in nature. Every action you take will add up to a much greater success. I can tell you that when you earn your first money, it will all become very REAL and it will lead to much more success.

Personally it took me a couple of months to get there (to earn my first dime), but by month 6 I was earning a consistent income. That is likely what your journey will look like...stay persistent and ask for help when you need it. I am in your "corner" every step of the way Douron! :)

And I think I will try a plain English tutorial. These notes are from listening to Kyle. So now I have to fill in the blanks! It goes to show that assuming everyone knows the basics is rarely true.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us.

Wealthy Affiliate is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business. I tried to do this alone before and was completely lost.

Now I know why.

There are so many tricks of the trade and it saves so much time having it all laid out clearly in its training programs.

Keep following the training and exercises every day. Give it a year to see significant results. You'll be a happy camper by then. We all make progress at different rates and it is possible to see meaningful results in 4-6 months. Google cannot be rushed.

Google rewards people with websites that provide value to their visitors. It helps to boost their ad revenue of course! And that helps your websites get high rankings. But it takes time to build credibility. Once they realize your site is an authority site, good things will happen faster.

When you get stuck, and you will, just ask for help in the discussion area located below each lesson. Scroll down to find it. Another member who has the answer will get back to you promptly.

In the meantime have fun with the program. Much success to you.

Cheers!

Edwin

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! :)

My Niche idea is based around Keto. I would like to have a site where busy families can go to for such advice as best family meals, things kids also like, have links to informative websites but not in a way where they have to spend hours reading, trying to give people a quick answer. I guess it comes from watching the amount of time my wife has spent doing all her research and using me as a guinea pig with recipes etc. I’d also like to link in certain products, Keto based and also products that just help in the kitchen. Maybe eventually adding in meal programs and then maybe some daily quick exercise routines. It is a bit of a collaboration with my wife, I’m the writer, she’s the doer. Any thoughts on this would be awesome. Thanks

Sure, that sounds like a natural direction that you could take with your niche. ;)

Douron, I just got a notice that you have filled in your profile. So I immediately came to read about you. Wow, a terrific profile. If you have read mine you will see we have similar background.

I lived mostly in Canada until I left home. Then went travelling. That was fun and in those days you could pick up work anywhere.

I voyaged to Australia (twice in fact) and that's way more fun than cruising. Why? My mum was born in Sydney and met my dad when he was posted here during the war.

So I have travelled right around and down the middle and crisscrossed the country.

Then I spent a year in NZ. Six months on both islands. I really enjoyed my time there and often consider moving over again.

I now live in Tasmania, vacating northern NSW because of the three weeks of 46 degree temperature that occurred in my last year there. No air conditioning so spent most time in the bath (cold water) and under the sprinklers. Often competing with the butcher birds for the spray.

I am really glad you found WA. It's a great teaching platform. Just don't get frustrated and many people do. It does take work but commit yourself and keep at it.

If you find the site rewarding and want to join as a premium, a word to you is that in November there is a 'Black Friday' special and the yearly rate is the most economical. And it's grandfathered in so no cost increases each year.

Drop me a line so we can start communicating.

Ciao
Helen

A very warm welcome to you Douron. I am sure you are going to love Wealthy Affiliate WA) and it’s vast, very helpful number of enthusiastic members
I have been a member here for some time and joining it is the best thing I ever did. I am so glad you visited my site and signed up through me.

I am now the owner of two websites and it’s all thanks to Wealthy Affiliate. Let me help you feel the same way by guiding your path to building a fantastic website.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly, so Douron ask away.

Just remember I am in the southern hemisphere, in Australia. Time zones count so my answers may seem either a bit lagging or a terrific premonition. Whichever, they will come to you!

Now you have arrived, set up your account and tell us something about yourself in your profile. Also a photo will be lovely.

I suggest you proceed with the Online Entrepreneur Certification Getting Started course (Level 1). These lessons will give you information and tasks in a step by step manner and help you build your website in any affiliate field you choose. You can start at this link. If you take a break you can re-access with this link or go to the WA dashboard and hit the Green box.

By the time you finish the Level 1 lessons I really believe you will continue here.
