Joined November 2016
Hi,

My name is Graham Hodsdon I live in Stafford in the UK. I'm 37 years old, married with 2 boys, 3 year old and a 2 year old. I work in retail as a senior manager within a 64 million pound store. I have always been on the look out for ways to run my own business to support my family better. As I have always known I need to stop trading time for money and set up a business that makes money when I'm not working. So that I can spend more time with my family. This has always been my goal since I was young and saw how little time I spent with my own father as he was always at work.

My goal has always been to retire early and spend time with my kids and my kids kids.

I have always been a people person and love helping people to unlock their potential to help them earn promotions and develop. The buzz you get from watching someone better themselves and unlock their own skills because you saw something in them and they trusted you. To see them grow a success, nothing beats it. I now find a place I can thrive in and be successful among a community of like minded individuals. Thank you so much Jason for showing me a link that brought me here and thank you for welcoming me in and showing your support. I will work hard to up skill and learn my way and pay all the support everyone gives forward to help others do the same.

I am so excited to unlock what has been bottled away for so long and finally break free of the system and live my life.

Here I go into my new future. Yehaaa! lol

Hey Graham :)

Thanks for being part of your network. Just checked out your website, which is absolutely FANTASTIC! The writing style is very natural and I can see that you've been very creative to write stuff in your own words instead of just copy & paste. Great work so far. I hope I'll reach this point too somewhen, cause currently I'm stuck on writing the actual content (I'm not a native English speaker).

Great bio, by the way!

Have a great 2017!

Hi Merlin, Thanks for the great feedback really appreciate it. Really great to be working with you. I really enjoy writing every post. I've been on your site and really enjoyed it too, your travelling to Germany site. Easy to read and the writing flows really well.
I find every time I get stuck on a post. I create the headers, then I just start bullet pointing what I'm aiming to write about. I find the content starts to flow after that.

Best wishes for your success in 2017 :)

Graham, 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 Graham.

Hi Kyle,

Thanks for all your help, it blows me away how much you are there for all of us. There is definitely no where on the web like WA. The community have been amazing too.

I did hit a wall once I got to lesson 4 when it came to putting the content together, but once it started to flow I was well away. I have 2 babies and was struggling to get on the laptop over a couple of days but I know that this will unlock my future and more time with them and this goal is driving me to make sure I make the time. This is exactly what i needed.
The stuff you have taught me in 5 days is more than I'd learnt in the last 2 attempts at setting up my own site over the years lol.

My life goals have all focused again and my aim is to be as successful as yourself. I will make sure I follow all your lessons to the letter to make sure I do it right. The site is really coming together now, absolutely buzzing.

I have already added links on to my getting started page while i keep building to hopefully pick up some referrals while building.

I am currently adding the sections for the themes to build on the content. I've just had some feedback of the feedback system which was great. What do you think so far?

http://avoidonlinescamsandstaysafe.com/

I have a better understanding of keywords now over the last 24 hrs so need to make some changes. I jumped to affiliate before completing course 2 lesson 4. But i know now i still need to keep flowing through course 2 while doing affiliate now lol.

I promise you i will make sure i get in touch if i need support. You've been amazing and I really appreciate every second of your time.

Thanks again
Graham

Hello Graham,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ 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 list of 1001 niche ideas, 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. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link on the right (click on my picture to get there). 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 2016-2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

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! :)

GrahamHod Premium
Your right there spent all night racking my brain of niche ideas. Kept thinking of what people search for and what i know well. The more i thought the more my list got lol. In the end i thought of the one thing i do really well is my focus on being successful. I have search this no end of times and it made me who I am. I can share all my techniques of mind over matter and motivation. Also it gives the site that i can also link the affilaite bootcamp too.
What do you think?

JasonJF Premium
Hey, Graham,

I think you are on the right track for sure. Mind Over Matter And Motivation is a niche that you can become really successful in.

I was just on Clickbank looking in the marketplace and saw a lot of products which you are able to promote on your website which is totally related.

Additionally, you can do motivational book reviews and link those book to Amazon, therefore, earning commissions once someone purchases using your affiliate link.

This is very exciting stuff and I think you will do really well.

If you are planning to promote Wealthy Affiliate on your website, I would recommend that you go through the Affiliate Bootcamp available here Keep learning, applying, asking questions and interacting with the community.

Feel free to reach out to me again if you need any further assistance. It's a pleasure to help!

Excellent thanks Jason that extremely helpful. I will make sure I follow those up. The more I think about this niche the more things keep cropping up. I'm really excited to get this rolling.
I just unlocked my premium too, knew I was going to was just a matter of when lol. Its awesome how they have pretty much covered everything off in setting up the sites, all I have to do is put my ideas to the pages now. :)

I will start going through the Affiliate bootcamp training next.

Thanks again Jason I can't thank you enough for bringing me here. Time to have some fun hehe.

Hi Jason,

I am so glad I found that brit method scam as it enabled me to find your site and Wealth Affilate. I'm a firm believer of things happen for a reason. I've never wanted a quick fix but I've always struggled to find a way to make my own business.

Just wanted to say a massive thanks for linking me up and for such a welcoming message. I look forward to working with you and learning everything I can with your support and the community.

Thanks again
