About Garydlc
Joined March 2017
My name is Gary De La Cruz, self employed, hands on Auto Mechanic living in Cape Town South Africa (The Cape Peninsula).

I enjoy many outdoor activities such as:

Camping, Cycling, Golfing, Kayaking, Mountain Hiking,
Motor Cycling (love long rides), Off Road Driving,
Pistol and Combat Shooting
Paint balling, Snorkeling
Scuba Diving,and Travelling.(Road Trips are my Favorite)

I am married for 33 years and have 3 adult children aged, 33, 29 and 21 years old, I play a bit of guitar and am active on our Neighborhood Watch, doing regular patrols.
I am family orientated and take great interest in what my children are doing, and who they interact with, I support them in all they do.

I have an above average work ethic and believe in doing things quickly and efficiently as possible. Never leaving what can be done Today, for Tomorrow.

I am in search of an alternative source of income to sustain me in my latter years, something less physically demanding. I found it here at WA.

I believe that I can succeed with an internet business and am willing to give it my all, the WA Platform is built for this purpose.
I am not too internet savvy but I am willing to learn all that I can here at WA.

My belief is:-
"If you enjoy your work, you will never work a day in your life".

I have adopted Wealthy Affiliate and the WA community as my 2nd family, I look forward to my online Entrepreneurial Future here at WA.

Welcome to Premium membership and to Wealthy Affiliate, Gary! You’ve made a smart choice! I’m sure you’ve already discovered what a fantastic place this is to learn web design and internet marketing. Pay attention to those that have been around a while and you’ll learn a lot! Ask questions, dive into the courses and video classes and try to make the weekly webinar on Friday evenings.

Please don’t hesitate to ask if you need any help. If I can be of assistance in any way, just let me know. If I don’t know the answer, I’ll find someone who does!

Wishing you the best of success!

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! :)

Hi, thank you for the support, yeah the last 10 or so hours were hard in the sense that I could not decide on a niche,
so I am following my best instinct and sticking with what I know and have 30+ years experience with "Motor Vehicle Maintenance and Repair",
I know it is a broad spectrum but it has so much potential for expansion, what do you think?

Good day to you Gary, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I suggest you learn the basics to online marketing first. In the Get Started Here section [top left green box] you will learn how to select a niche, build a niche website, and learn keyword research. All else is built around these three principles.
I look forward to working with you and wish you much success and prosperity in building your online empire.
