About GuyW1
Joined October 2018
Well Hi everybody, my name is Guy and I'm from the UK. I'm very pleased to be here in this amazing community of knowledge and entrepreneurship. As I'm getting older I felt that it was time to do my own thing, work and learn at my own pace, earn an online income and enjoy life.
So, a little background info about me. I joined the military when I left school and served for 12 years after which I went from job to job, not able to settle for many years. Since leaving the military I've not had what you might optimistically call a career path as I've never found a job that gave me the same feeling of camaraderie or fulfillment.
I have travelled extensively and been fortunate enough to see some wonderful places and meet some truly amazing people.
As far as interests go, I still like travelling when I can but I also have a great passion for Scuba diving, record collecting(vinyl), reading and music.

I think that there is a small misunderstanding here.....I collect vinyl as in Vinyl Records - Albums etc.

Thanks for the thought anyway

Hi, Guy.

Thanks for joining my network; I've returned the compliment.

I understand how you feel. Military life is so different from civilian life. I know you've made the right decision joining Wealthy Affiliate. The great thing about this business (for me anyhow) is the fact you only need a laptop or tablet, and so long as you have access to the internet you can pretty much travel anywhere and continue with this business!

If you need any help, give me a shout. If I can't help you, I'm sure I'll be able to find someone who can.

All the best,
Be happy!

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the welcoming words. I'm sure that we will all do well in the end if we adhere to and follow the training and ask questions or for advice. I'll be sure to keep your kind offer of help close at hand.

All the best to you

Hi Guy, welcome to WA and many thanks for the follow. I’ve only just joined last week for the main reason of learning more about the fascinating business of online marketing and producing an income from the internet.
Where abouts are you based in the UK?

All the best

Thanks for the follow Guy as I said elsewhere always go forward, enjoy all you do in life and keep on believing in yourself.

Just keep going through Kyle's training and you will enjoy all before you.

Remember you can always ask questions at the end of each training plus you already know other places as well.

Hello Guy And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you may well have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring to the training.
If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 450+ 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.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.
GuyW1 Premium
Hello Robert,

Thank you for your welcome and I do refer back to the training with alarming regularity but I'm sure it will all sink in eventually. There is so much to learn and you can be assured that I will contact you should the need arise.

Many thanks
Robert-A Premium
No probs Guy and if/when you read my blogs make sure you choose the ones that will help you in conjunction with whatever training you are currently taking.

Also being a new member you may not be aware of it but it’s a good idea (only if you are interested in your rank within WA) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.

Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing else.

But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your Wednesday.

Hi Guy,
Sue and I thank you for your following. We welcome you to Wealthy Affiliate. I know of the camaraderie of the military, having worked with a DOD contractor on Wake Island. There is nothing like it.

But Wealthy Affiliate comes in pretty close with so many out there to converse with. It may not be like hanging out in a Pub, but the Community can be very fulfilling.

Best wishes for grand success here at Wealthy Affiliate.

Hi Guy - Welcome t WA and congratulations on going Premium!

This is definitely the place to be to learn about online marketing. The training is excellent and the community is extremely supportive. It's perhaps not the same as in the military but for an online community I doubt you'll find better so if you have any questions about anything just ask.

WA shows you how to do everything the right way. It's not a get-rich-quick scheme but you can get rich slowly :-)

Wishing you much success,

Hey Guy,

I too served my country and was able to met many people from multiple cultures around the world, while serving it was a great time in my life that I will cherish for ever. I’d like to be one of the first member’s here at WA to congratulate you, on making what I think to be a very smart decision toward securing your finances in the near future, and that was upgrading to premium.

You will find that there is plenty of training being offered on this platform not just through the two main training courses that you have most likely already started one of them, if not just click on the green "Training" tab on the left over there to get started.

Additional over on the left is recorded copies of Jay’s webinars click on "Live Events" tab to view those, also, Friday evening 8 pm US Pacific Standard Time is when the live events happen. You won't want to miss those and you’ll just use the same tab to join those events with Jay and everyone else).

Straight above in the black WA tool bar (just right of the WA icon) is a search box that has a cornucopia of information anything A-Z about online entrepreneurship, website design, and other aspect relevant to your new online business. You can find all that information and so much more hidden in that gem.

Then if you cannot find your answer in any of the platform’s resources you can always asking the member’s 24/7 “live Chat” tab also located on the left over there. You should be able to find someone in there that can answer your question or guide you in the right direction to get it solved.

WA is a “NO SPAM ZONE”, they consider posting your Domain name/URL/logo/company name without being asked to do so, as spam here. Here is a link the Kyle’s posted copy of the WA rules: There are a couple of spots that you are allowed to openly post your URL (but no logo’s or company names are to be posted anywhere on this site) on the lower far right of your profile page there is a spot, and then 2 platforms which can be found by clicking the websites tab on the WA home page and they are site feedback, and site comment.

What most members do is put website’s link in the lower right hand corner of their profile page then when you ask someone to look at your site they will know right where to go to find the link as long as you are both following each other.

I hope your stay here is long and very lucrative. If you ever need any additional help please don’t hesitate to ask anyone for help, the community is full of members willing to help n any way possible - including me :-D

Once again Welcome to WA!

Affiliate marketing is our priority: where content is KING and consistency is the KEY to your SUCCESS

Here’s to that success,

GuyW1 Premium
Thank you the welcome and the advice which I have absorbed.
Now following you.

Hi Guy, thank you for following me. I can understand how hard it is to find job fulfillment after you leave such a close knit community as the military. I have worked in oil and gas for more than 35 years and we are also a close community. But, getting out and into an online business means that I can have the income to continue to catch up with them at trade shows and conferences if I decide to. My future is now in my hands and not with somebody else. Embrace Wealthy Affiliate and you will feel the same. Study hard, ask questions when you need to and write great content and you will succeed online. All the best with your endeavours. Gary

If there is anything I can do to assist you in any way please feel free to contact me and I will do my best to assist any way I can

Welcome Guy to one of the greatest online platforms available!

I feel so lucky to have found such a great place to learn, be creative, and build my business.

The best thing about WA and the community is that you have all the resources that you need. It is just about applying everything you learn, being patient, and achieving your short term goals.

I encourage you to start the training right away. As you go through the training you can watch the videos, read the video summaries and be sure to apply every single step in the video without skipping steps.

It is amazing how much you learn and how quickly you can become a great resource for others.

If you ever have any questions or need assistance don't hesitate to reach out.

Thank you very much for your kind words and encouragement. I am taking it slowly and going over things more than once. I need to understand fully before moving on.

Many thanks again

Hi!!! And welcome to WA Premium. You will not regret your decision!! The information available here is never ending!! And the training is incredible!! Take it ALL in!!

Follow the training! I cannot stress this enough. Do not skip around. Do the lessons in the order in which they are. As well as the tasks that follow each of those lessons. I often jumped ahead in training, on my own, to only later really regret it.

Go at your pace. Slow and steady is my new rule. You'll find you can't wait to learn more in the following days. You’ll want to learn more!! It ignites a new passion within you. It did me! Gave me back my purpose for living! There were a few lessons that I had to watch twice. If that's what you have to do, do it!

And soon you will have yourself an awesome website. Amazing direction, and the tools that you need to succeed in whatever it is you want to do!

You CAN do this!!

Be awesome!! Be amazing!!! And be successful!!

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! :)
GuyW1 Premium
Hi Kyle,

Finding a niche is most probably the hardest thing for me as I tend to think too deeply about it and over analyse it and therein lies the issue. I have hundreds of ideas, but at the moment not in a useable form. Need to simplify!

If I need to "bounce" ideas of you I will.

Kyle Premium
A niche can honestly be anything, what are you passionate about? What are you interested in?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

My biggest accomplishment and the one I am most proud of is of the 6+ years I spent caring for my Mother who had Alzheimers and Vascular Dementure. A terrible disease that robs one of self determination, dignity, memories and ultimately, life. To be quite honest I don't know how I managed but I think that my military background helped a lot - Discipline, Duty and the ability to push oneself. I felt that it was my duty to care for her.
