About EdwinBernard
Joined December 2018
Hi fellow entrepreneurs I’m glad to have found this place. For the longest time I’ve tried to build a business and struggled to be successful. My hope is to succeed with the help of Wealthy Affiliate.

I am a cockpit display engineer by profession, now retired. I got stung by the Great Recession ten years ago and lost all my retirement savings. It’s tough living on pensions and social security alone so I’m highly motivated to build an online business to provide additional sustainable income.

My hobbies include playing the piano, honing my communication and leadership skills through Toastmasters International and managing my YouTube channel that promotes young musical talent: http://www.youtube.com/user/netzoomer . I look forward to building new professional relationships here.

Hello Edwin ... thank you for the follow. Wow, cockpit display engineer. That's heavy stuff. Do you feel your obvious digital skills have assisted you here at WA? I know the sick feeling from seeing the economy break down you retirement savings.

I got hit first by the Dot Com bust in 2000 and then once again with the 2007 Financial melt down. Definitely a shoulda, coulda, woulda.

I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Glad to hear from you. Sorry to say my digital skills were very basic. Although I worked with digital displays my field of expertise was in the optical and human factors fields. I interacted with loads of engineers who were digital experts.

I’ve learned more about how to use the online space for business through WA than ever before. In 1981 a friend and I talked about investing in Apple. Obviously I didn’t. But in 2007 I bought 200 shares of Apple at $14 each. When it rose to $70 I sold it all. Big mistake. I should have sold half and held on to the rest. That was way before the 7 way split when it reached $700.

Now I have to make money the hard way online. I feel good about it with WA at my side.

I wish you much success in your online efforts.

Good morning. I have had such a welcome and people following and I am only in training. I have always wanted to play the piano well so got a used piano that needs tuned and a couple key s fixed on the front. You can play them okay but they are black keys so the tops have broken off. Another goal. I love the piano and music that comes from the piano. Thank you for following me. I am looking forward to creating an online business. Will help take some of the physical work away from my daily work.

Hi Donna,

Glad to hear you’ve got a used piano. You should check out the cost to get the keys fixed.

I used to own a Steinway Baby Grand. When I lost my retirement savings in the 2008-09 recession I sold it. A few years ago I bought a Casio Digital Piano, CGP 700. It’s amazing. I’m catching up on the pieces I used to play. Try YouTube for free lessons. Lots of great ones.

Much success in your online business.

Sorry to hear about the loss of your retirement savings, but I'm holding out for your real story of how with the help of WA you are now able to give more away. May your proverbial cup overflow in the days to come. Thanks again for the follow - I've added you as well. TTYL

Oh thank you so much for your kind thoughts. You are right. My loss is motivation to work hard in WA in order to make a complete recovery and more.

I count myself fortunate that even with that loss, my wife and I can still lead a comfortable life following a strict budget.

I also wish you much success in your online business.

Cheers!

Hello Edwin And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
I actually thought we were already following each other.

Since you joined last year you will no doubt know by now that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve and there will always be something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 500+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

Have a great Tuesday.
Robert

EdwinBernard Premium
Robert, I thank you for reaching out to me. Your kind response and great advice are much appreciated. You are right. The learning curve is steep. But well worth the effort.

There are so many ways I want to help others when I am able to have an extra stream of income added to my fixed amount retirement pensions.

I will check out your Blogs as I am sure I will find great nuggets of wisdom that will help me.

All the best to you.

Thank you for following me back Edwin - greatly appreciated.

Toastmasters International is a great way of
"honing communication and leadership skills".
I was not as confident to join Toastmasters. I joined Rotary, & have gained a lot of confidence over the years & also consider I will work here at WA & improve myself.

Hi Denis, glad to hear you’ve got confident in public speaking. In a Toastmasters meeting were encouraged to try and fail our way to success! Speech evaluations are given in a very kind way. No matter how bad the speech is the speaker is not made to feel bad. You should check out a club as a guest sometime.

All the best in building a successful online business here at Wealthy Affiliate.

Thanks Edwin

I will work to build my online business here at WA. I will not quit, however some times I have been tempted too.
My problem is the images on my website - they go all over the place - so it is back to repeat the training to see where I have gone wrong.

BTW - In what part of the world do you live ?

Denis
Reply
EdwinBernard Premium
In LA. Been here since 1983. So same time zone as Wealthy Affiliate HQ in Vancouver. I see you live in Bangkok.That is far from here.

When you say the images on your website go all over the place, do you mean when you trying to place them within your Blog?

Since this is a website issue why don't you ask Site Support for help?

Hope you don't give up.

Edwin

Hi Edwin,

Thanks again for your message on my profile.

I was reading your bio, and my father got wiped out by the recession in 08 as well.. He had 40 years in at the same company, busting his butt. I remember how many nights he came home so late when I was a youth, he gave them blood, sweat and damn near tears... They showed him the door with barely an explanation and then screwed him on his severance pay, and he lost his pension that he had been paying into the whole time. On top of that their retirement savings got decimated by the market crash. That was when I realized I wasn't happy in corporate life, and the long game wasn't there anyway. I still haven't figured out this entrepreneur thing to as much success as I want yet, but I don't regret the journey so far for a second. I can tell by the way you walk your path that success will not elude you for long.

All the best,

-J

Thank you so much for your vote of confidence. The problem I faced from losing a small fortune was my regular efforts to make that back fast. I ended up following rainbows to even more losses.

I finally learned there is no quick and easy way to amass wealth. It can happen, but that is rare. The old fashioned way of hard work applied constructively is the best way. And that is what Wealthy Affiliate teaches us.

You are right. I will succeed because I have exhausted the avenues of failure ha! Finding the WA avenue is like a breath of fresh air.

Thanks once again. I also wish you much success in building your business.

Edwin

You will succeed because you are genuine in your writing and are sincere in your consideration of others needs. I have read about lots of 'successful' people from all different eras, and I think in the end success is really about how well you deal with the journey of life, whatever hand you are dealt. Success is not a destination, it's a state of mind. The more we embrace that I think the more the things we want to achieve and experience along the way will come to fruition.

You know something? I never ever used my feet to play the piano.

I came across a young organist called Cameron Carpenter who set up two pianos to play simultaneously. One with his hands and the other using his feet just like the pedal board in a church organ. Here is the link:

Now that's the way to use ones feet playing the piano lol.

Hi Edwin - Thanks for the follow and I will do the same.
I agree, I am very happy to have stumbled upon the Wealthy Affiliate space. I also was impacted 10 years ago as well. I've spent a lot of time getting back to where I was back then. But I realize it can all be taken away again without notice. That is why it's so important to have a place like this where we can thrive and remain in control.
Great meeting you, all the best to you,

Kevin, thanks for reaching out. I find it unbelievable that a place like Wealthy Affiliate even exists. I tried for so long to get help to understand how the online traffic building process works. There were online companies that had courses for that, but they charged over $1000.

It's now time to use what we have here efficiently and to be patient in getting results.

All the best.

Thanks for your kind comments. WA has helped me realize that the the most successful acts of selling is not that of selling at all.

It is all about finding people who have problems and providing them solutions. We get their attention via the valuable information we provide through our Blogs. You are a proponent of the Law if Attraction. You can use that skill in building a successful online business.

Please note that I am introverted and not very social (for example, I do not have any social media accounts such as Facebook or Twitter). I know that 'to 'follow' someone is part of the community and learning aspect of WA, but it is also a bit creepy, Consequently, please don't take offence if I do not reciprocate any 'followers'.

Hello Edwin, its great meeting you hear.

You recently took me up on my offer to be in a mutual help group for WA members doing the super affiliate challenge. This was in my blog post .

I have now created my website for this challenge. It's https://superaffiliatechallenge.com.

Please go to that site and click Q&A from the main menu. It's a thread created especially for this group. It's password protected and the password is wasac (for wealthy affiliate super affiliate challenge). I look forward to your participation and mutual support.

Awesome job with that website Phil! I did what you said to access the password protected site and got the message that the site cannot be reached. Can you check it out again?

It's been a week since the program started and Kyle hasn't sent out any new messages on the Super Affiliate Program. Any idea what will be happening?

I've just started Level 5. I won't be starting Bootcamp until I get my OEC. I plan on making my Superaffiliate website but not until then. Do you think that will handicap me for this training?

Thanks for taking the lead as I'll need help. I'll be willing to give help where I can be of assistance too.

I don't know if it is a coincidence, but I'm getting a boat load of sites to give comments. And I am encouraged to ask for comments too through the 2:1 exchange plan.

So lots happening. And I love it!

Thanks for viewing my post. When you access my post from the Home Page the path to reaching the comment window is a link on the left margin. If the post is accessed using the links on the right only that post is displayed with the comment window below. This could be a characteristic of the Theme I selected. Thanks for the heads up. I will have to change my script to accommodate this anomaly.

I learned something new today on WordPress by accident. I discovered where comments get sent awaiting approval before being posted on ones site. I found out I received FIVE great comments. That made my day!

One of my posts that had received a comment was missing. I was able to get the link reintroduced in the right margin by changing the publish date.

Has anyone else had one or more of their posts links disappear? And if so how did they get them back differently than what I did?

Thanks for your time to respond.

Hello Edwin,

So I'm not sure if this answers your question, but I did have one of my posts disappear on me when i was trying to edit my website. It turned out that I had somehow managed to trash it and I went to the trash in my "all posts" under the word press dashboard and recovered it.

Hopes this helps,

I discovered the maximum number of links I can have in the right margin is 5. When I add more posts the oldest link drops out. The posts are still there and can be accessed from the Home Page menu. It pulls up all my posts linearly.

Hi, Edwin.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. WA is a great community. There is so much to learn. I am here most days. I learn something every day.

I've been a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate over 18 months now, and I don't regret one day!

Keep moving ahead. However your day may be, take a little step forward. Some days you'll make significant strikes, other days you will not, but do something every day, however small in building your business.

You will read many stories of WA members succeeding with their online goals. Some have achieved this in a few months, for others, it has taken a couple of years. The common trait for those that have reached their goals is taking action. Everyone who has succeeded has taken small steps every day. Do something, however tiny, every day, and you will reach your goal.

Pace yourself and enjoy your journey.

Best wishes,
Paul.
Be Happy!

Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learnt to always use the search tab at the top of the desktop, the answer is usually in someone's free training. Type in topic, rather than long question.
There is an answer to just about every question, all you need to do is ask..
Aside from the Certification and Bootcamp courses, there is heaps of extra training. Check out the training classrooms as well as the live events. There are current as well as past events in here. You can find both these tabs on the left-hand side
Start playing with tabs and boxes on your dashboard, there is so much hidden information, just keep looking for it.
Enjoy Wealthy Affiliate. There are lots of people here only too happy to help you along the way with encouragement and helpful tips. Wealthy Affiliate is about training, but that is just a small part of this wonderful community. If you participate as well as train, you will gain so much more.

I did subscribe to an excellent group similar to WA several months ago. Although I went through the courses I felt alone. If there was a community I failed to make the connection. WA is 180 degrees opposite. I am thrilled how welcoming and helpful everyone is. I am thrilled to have made WA a start of a new year. Thanks!

Hi Frank and Tina, just to let you know I completed Level 2 today. I have just figured out that I can use my two screens to have my dashboard open on one and Kyle's video playing on the other. I can stop him when I need to take action on his advice.

I noticed you are ranked 402 today. That is awesome considering you joined less than a year!

I wish you both much success.

Edwin

Hi Edwin, welcome to WA!

My name is Tim, you might remember me from my website Affiliate UNguru.

Just stopping by to say hello and to see if there's anything I can do to help you get started?

If so, just reply to this message and I'll get back to you asap :)

I also wanted to give you the link to start your training: This is where I recommend you start your training. Everything you need to know is explained within these lessons and there are tasks to complete as you go too (which I also recommend doing).

I'm super excited to share this with you, because this is the exact training I followed myself to go from newbie to full time income online!

I know you are going to love this.

The last thing I wanted to mention is that it's totally ok to ask lots of questions. In fact, the more questions you ask the better!

Because when you ask questions, you have the rare opportunity to learn from people who have achieved some incredible success, by following the exact same path you are on right now.

This is extremely powerful stuff and it's one of the biggest reasons why WA stands head and shoulders above ANY other platform I have ever tried.

I remember when I first started here I asked LOTS of questions (even though I was worried some of them were 'dumb questions' lol). And I'm glad I did, because the value I got from being able to learn from people who were already successful was absolutely priceless.

It really was a major turning point for me, and it can be for you too.

So I encourage you to ask lots of questions and get amongst this awesome community as much as possible. The more you engage with the WA community, the more you will learn, and the more successful you will become!

Anyways Edwin, it's wonderful to have you as part of the WA community and I wish you the very best of success on your journey here!

Cheers,
Tim

P.S I also wanted to give you the heads up on some cool bonuses I've got lined up for you, if you upgrade to a Premium membership within your first 7 days!

★ Bonus #1 | Special Discount

★ Bonus #2 | Live Case Study
Exclusive access to a Live case study that walks you through the EXACT process of creating a profitable niche website- right in front of your eyes- over the shoulder. This one bonus alone could change everything for you, as you are seeing the entire process in action from "idea to profit"- step-by-step, click by click. This case study is not available anywhere else so it's very high value stuff.

★ Bonus #3 | I Will Personally Help You Choose a Niche
One of the biggest stumbling blocks beginners face is choosing a niche. But it doesn't have to be that way. Because I'm personally going to walk you through choosing a profitable niche. Based on YOUR passion or interest! No more guesswork and no more 'fear' you've chosen the wrong niche. I am personally going to be working with you to help you find a winning niche!

I started right where you are now and worked my way to a full time income online. Which means I know what works and I know how to help you succeed. I am uniquely positioned to help you achieve your goals, in the shortest amount of time possible. So this is going to be a HUGE help to you going forward.

Hi Tim,
Glad to hear from you. I already learned one tip from you on how to connect with interested prospects. By getting me to click on the review of the Agora program I was tempted to purchase. Your analysis made sense to me because I’ve experienced many upsell actions from them and others. Although I’ve never purchased the upsell, a lot of small $39.99 teaser purchases soon added up. I am now done with responding to copy where this is clearly the case.
I am currently going through the My Leads System Pro basic program where I pay $137 every 3 months. My next installment is due in January. I wanted to find leads for two opportunities I’m vested in. My Legal Shield network marketing program and my solar panel business. These are two niches that I would like to discuss with you.
I am also a musician, have been since a kid, and I’d like to find a niche in that area.
I also love cooking and adding food as another niche would also make sense to me.
Any advice on these choices would be much appreciated. I have no idea how to find businesses in these fields that offer affiliate programs. I’ll need help.
Ok, I have a decision to make before my 7 days expire. To select MA over MLSP. MLSP are very strong on leads building training but I find their business building training too confusing. My first impression of MA is that it addresses all aspects of building an online affiliate marketing business. So did MLSP but I never got to those areas yet. Their program has lengthy training modules that confused me. I am going to devote intensive time gong through the MA system in my first week to help me decide if this is right for me. If so I will drop MLSP and upgrade to Premier in MA. I like those bonuses and want to take advantage of them.
Sorry for this lengthy message. Looking forward to your response.
BTW I loved your review of Agora as well as how you introduced MA in the link that I clicked. Very clever lol!
Cheers!

Hi Edwin,

These ideas can definitely work. What I would suggest is asking yourself some questions:

- What are you passions or interests?
- What do you know something about or what have you researched?
- What problems have you faced, or are facing, and what solutions have you found?

These are all good starting points. And in doing this, your goal is to find a topic that you are interested in and one that you can add value to.

So try to think about *which group of people you are trying to help* with your website.

Starting your research around a passion or interest is always a good idea, because there are vast opportunities to profit within practically ANY niche you can think of. So it makes sense to focus on a topic that interests you.

Even if you can give me a broad idea, I can help you come up with a profitable niche idea from there.

Let me know, so we can get your site up and running asap! :)

Hi Tim,

My passion is music. It encompasses all aspects of music involving creating, performing, creating videos, editing, and home video and audio equipment to watch it all. A short list of products required is musical instruments, photographic and video cameras, drones with cameras, mics, displays and speakers. My music YouTube Channel has over 13,000 subscribers and has accumulated about 8 million views. I have free access to the YouTube Space in LA to make and edit videos.

Ok, please give me guidance on how to parlay this niche into my website. I already have a website using my name that is a place holder Can I use that? Or would a website with a name connected with my niche be more appropriate?

Happy New Year to you and your family Tim. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Cheers!

Edwin

Wow that is very impressive Edwin, nice work.

The music niche is massive, so there are MANY avenues you could explore here. My thinking is that you really want to focus on an aspect of the niche that people are wanting to learn something about, rather than people who just want to listen to music, because otherwise there's not much point of starting an affiliate site. You really want to create an information rich site that helps your audience learn stuff.

So for example:

- Learn how to play __ instrument
- Learn how to create __ music
- Improving your on-stage performance
- Creating music videos
- Music editing and production

Any one of these could become a great niche for you. The key is to kind of 'niche down' into something a bit more focussed than just 'music' because that's too broad on it's own.

Ask yourself, what would your existing audience be most interested in learning more about, other than just listening to more of your music?

You could use your YouTube channel to grow your website audience and visa versa, so you are actually in an excellent position here, you just need to make sure you keep the flow of relevance between the two.

You could use an existing site but to be honest it's going to be way easier to start again because I can almost guarantee the sites will be very different. You are creating an information rich blog, one that is designed to inform and engage, and one that will bring you traffic through search engines like Google when done correctly. So I'd follow the training and start from scratch personally, but it's up to you.

Happy new year and by all means reach out if you have any other questions :)

Tim
