About Gjrs
Joined October 2015
I am trained and experienced in the construction industry. I specialised in the residential sector where I provided services for clients wanting to achieve their customised dream homes.

What I really enjoyed in my years in this industry was sitting down with my clients and creating their vision, achieving energy efficiency, creating great kitchens and the overall process of bringing people together in a team to achieve the desired outcome. But most of all, it was the delight that I saw on my client's faces when they saw their new homes.

Too much of a good thing led to too much stress and burn out after two decades in this business and I decided to leave the industry. I still do some some work in this field, mainly designing kitchens where my company has won awards for it's designs.

Other things that I'm currently enjoying is meditating, it really puts me in a good place to take on my projects and I enjoy reading. Learning about the things that interest me.

Another interest is travel. As difficult as it was for me to get out of my business, it opened up the opportunity for my wife and I to travel to Europe where we fell in love with Greece and set a plan to live there part-time. Over the last few years we have been part-time residents in both Australia and Greece. Completely unexpected has been our involvement in running an olive grove and producing olive oil, it's been a wonderful experience.

I am now at the stage where I am looking to create a business, one which I can run from anywhere in the world and which will support our goals. And this brings me to WA. I am not sure what the business idea is going to be, whether I draw from my past experiences or go for something completely new.

I am however a little excited about the possibilities that may open up for me being part of this community.

I am looking forward to the journey, meeting the community and learning.

The thing about online success that I have come to learn is that there is room for ALL of us within the online world. There is no marketplace that is bigger and there is nowhere that represents this kind of opportunity, regardless of your niche, passions and interests (and it only continues to grow!!)

Take action on the training here at WA, immerse yourself within the awesome and helpful community here at WA... and ask for help when you need it. You will be well on your way to achieve your goals George!

Yes Greg. I never really liked cats until about 5 years ago. I thought I was a dog man as I grew up with a German Shepherd, that's until about 5 years ago when I went and lived in Greece for about 4 years. I fell in love with them, amazing beings!

Hello George, Welcome! Nice to meet you, I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under training (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hello George and a very belated welcome to wealthy affiliate.
I'm guessing you must have had other things to do since you joined.
No matter you're here now and thank you for the follow and I will follow you in return.
There is loads of information here for anyone who would like to earn an income from the internet.
I for example have lots of blogs published within WA so there is lots of tips and advice for you to access and hopefully they will help make sense out off it all.
Have an excellent day.
Robert

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?". lol

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 at me! :)
Reply
gjrs Premium
So Kyle, the training says that the niche selection process (as a starting point) should be no more than 10 - 15 minutes. Go with gut feel and not over analysis?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, don't over analyze. The fact of the matter is that ANY niche can be very successful online!
Reply
gjrs Premium
Thanks for the reply Kyle.

I come from the home design and construction industry where I was involved in the design and overall client management process. I came up with solutions for clients on matters such as design, energy efficiency, building materials and components such as windows, cladding material e.t.c. Do you think I could go down this path with my web site or is this area too 'cumbersome,' for lack of a better word, for affiliate marketing. Am I better to stick with easier or every day consumables?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, you can definitely work within this niche you will want to narrow your ideas down to one niche. Energy Efficient House, that alone could be a huge niche and it is something where you could discuss MANY different things. ;)
Reply
gjrs Premium
Thank you Kyle, not 100% certain yet but I think I have found my niche.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Well if you ever want to run your ideas by me, simply let me know. ;)

Hey George,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well George and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

Here we are, 10 days into your experience at WA. :)

I hope things are going well George! I want to remind you of one thing, your hard work and dedication IS going to pay off. Keep working through the training, communicating within the community, and of course, ask for help when you need it.

Just heading out for a bit here, but do leave me a message if you need a hand with anything. You should have Premium communication back for an additional 7 days now, so hit me up when you get a chance George!

What's going on George? Hope you have had an awesome week here at WA and you are making some good progress. Drop me a note "reply" if you need a hand with anything. :)

Hey George, just wanted to pop back and see how you are doing? I noticed that you haven't quite set-up your account yet, just wanted to let you know there is a video on how to do this if there is any confusion. Setting up your account will lead to much better help here within the community as people feel like they can connect with you better (with an image and a description)

Just wanted to make sure that all was good and if you do need a hand with anything, just let me know! :)
