About HennieSteyl
Joined July 2017
I am an "Old Timer" you can say, in IT. I lived through the "computer evolution". I started in IT working on the massive mainframes that used card readers and punched tapes to activate programs, saw the birth of the Desktop PC, fax machines, cell phones, etc.Today at 65 I am more hooked than ever on the power of computers and the internet.

O, and I am also a Grand Dad of 5 grandchildren that I love to bits. I am still married to my first wife Anette, no thanks to me but all the glory to our King Jesus. That said, I am also an active disciple of Him.

Update: On the 28th January 2018 I was blessed to be one of the chosen to be part of the Super Affiliate Group, SWAG for short, by Kyle. A yearlong program whereby Kyle takes us through intensive training to make Super Affiliates of us.

Hennie,
Thank you for asking. I would focus on www.ebettercare.com, which I have built it since joining WA on 9/25/2017. Known to us inside WA, we all like to monetize the niche and the contents we are good at, am I right? That is why I have been baffled so much chiefly due to total digital blindness, but I like and struggle to rid it and let me be able to stroll on modern path of life like the younger.

I do appreciate guidance so to walk out of such pit of life.

Best to your and family,



James

Hi Hennie! Or is that Gu Day Mate! Not sure where you are in the world.
Hey, reason for the message, one; thanks again for your insight regarding my market niche, or niches as the case may be.
Two; I'd like you to give my undated profile a read over and see what you think. Might be a tad bit long. Wouldn't be the first time.
I am of the tendency to give my life's history to a complete stranger. Some find that a bit off putting, but hey, if you don't like that, then you're probably not going to like me over the long haul, or even the short haul, for that matter.
Love chatting with you. Any chance you'll be at the Vegas shindig? Would really get a kick out of meeting you in person.
All my best

I want to thank you for the much assistance and answers you have contributed to me. I am old school to and never before WA had I created a website. I now have created my first one and it is connected and ranking but I am still not sure how to get it to the top. I'll just keep plugging along, learning, learning, learning and placing, placing, placing and then one day I'll get referrals. This is the part that I don't yet understand. My links are on the website and I still have to figure out some of the many things I need to do to get more success. I have just started the 2nd course lessons and this is where much of my answers will come. Thanks again for all your input. Carla

Hey Henniest!

Thanks for answering my question. Hey I just looked you up on WA and saw that you love Jesus! Right on! God bless brotha Henniest! All glory to Jesus! Hopefully we meet one day! I just started on WA about almost 1 month so its been pretty good so far. I feel like there is a long journey for me ahead in this affiliate marketing stuff. So new to this. But by God's grace and plan, what ever happens, it will all be for his glory!

Hello Hennie and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you've been here you might have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
You must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400 blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

Hello, Henniest.

I enjoyed reading your profile. Congrats on being a SWAG. I did not apply because I'm moving slowly through the Certification course and it's all I can do to work on my first website at this time. Hoping Kyle will do this again next year or make the training available then.

I'm planning on doing Bootcamp when I finally work my way through and have my website up and hopefully generating some income by then.

Unlike you, I am very low tech (and have a T-shirt to prove it that my sister gave me for Christmas one year!)

Following you. Have a great day.

Love your about page. How cool that you went through all those stages, from the monstrous MainFrame and forward. I am 61, so I remember all of that also, but was not into it yet!
I am also an active sister of Jesus, and I am counting on Him to help me through all of this ( and everything else, too!)
Best of luck with WA, and with all those wonderful grandkids! Carol

Thank you, Carolyn. He is our Rock. What attracts me so much to WA is the basis of this wonderful platform. They stress that everyone should go out of their way to pay it forward, as they put it. That is the basis of New Testament law. Love God and Love others.
If one build on that, you can't go wrong.

Isn't it grand to have grandchildren, I only have 2 but they are so precious to me.
I'm with you there about the earliest computers, I didn't even have one till about 20 yrs ago, now I go to a Computer Club to learn everything about them.
Thank you for following me I have followed you back.

Thank you for the follow. I started my first job in NCR Singapore in 1987 and at that time, NCR supplied mainframes to major banks in Singapore. Those mainframes and banking terminals still using cassette tapes to do the recording. IT is really changing each day in life.
You are right that internet is affecting our lifestyle and going online will give us an opportunity to create income stream. Wish you accomplish your goal here.

Hi Hennie,

Thank you for following. Same old school -i'm 62. I remember late 70's, early 80's, my first encounter with computer, a minicomputer at the University in Grenoble, France - punch cards etc, then came the Apple micros, PCs, programming in Basic, Cobol etc. Thank you also for sharing the kind of love the world badly needs. I wish you all the success, peace and happiness.

I was around from the early days, too, but I didn't work on main frames at that time. I am into Ham Radio, and through our radio-based Packet AX.25 system, we were ON the internet before most people even had a clue that there WAS an internet! That was back in the mid 80s. I am an elder in our little store-front church, so I'll encourage you to keep the faith as well!

I am glad to find you Hennie. I am into mainframe application development. I have a senior colleague at work who speaks about punch cards and tapes. I often ask him that it would have been awesome if he could have kept some of those samples with him. It would be interesting to see them today in comparison to how we punch in multiple jobs today on our laptop.
Thanks!

Yes Subhadeep. In those days it was just mind-boggling what those beasts could do. At a later stage, we installed a carousel with hundreds of tapes inside and an automatic robot arm picking tapes and inserting them into tape drives. Those tapes could store a massive 360 MB of data. Those were the days.

Hi Hennie,

Thanx for the follow, I also worked with computers at the card reader stage but digressed for a number of years eventually getting back into PC's and running a computer support business for small business which put my kids through school.

Now, with a new partner in my life I am exploring the virtues of the internet world via affiliate marketing.

Thanx again for the follow, may your Xmas be good to you and all the best for 2018.

Hey Henniest, care for a caricature? That's ok if you don't want it,
I do it for practice and man this place is a treasure chest of new faces I can practice on.....umm, like yours.

We do have something in common we are baby boomers, lucky to say. I am proud and btw Henniest, We (us) are in the numbers. I mean bigtime numbers. We are not going out quietly, if you know what I mean.

This e-commerce marketing is huge and we play a part of it, no kidding. I'm here for 3 months now and have nothing to show but
my website outside of WA.

But I know this place is exciting for me and newbies who are just beginning their own journey such as yourself. I'm excited for you.
We have over 3 billion of us humans and counting and we now
at the beginning of a new paradyn.(I hope I said it right and mean it right too. lols) but everybody as individuals have something somebody in this world want from you and that is exciting my friend. Ok, enough of my thoughts.

Getting back Henniest, I'm drawing people care for one. I love to practice my skill and put a smile on faces. There's no catch, my professions screams for me to get better and what better place
to place but right here.

let me know my brother from a different mother.

Btw, God Bless you my friend!

I'm sorry Henniest but my memory goes back quite a bit further than yours :) . With regard to a "main frame" the company I was with had an IBM which had to be fed with punch tapes etc. and took up a huge amount of air conditioned space. It's cost was I believe around £250,000 In the early 60's. (a huge amount of money for that time). Today a £300 desk top computer could cope in place of that main frame.
Like you I'm a Grandparent dare I say also, a Great Grandparent!!

good day- i'm following you now-- I have a question:

If I'm promoting WA can i use those words (letters) in my description-- something like this 'veterans are making money with the WA affiliate program made easy, not a make money now, but a career.' don't know if i can put something like this in the description part. suggestions please!

Hi. You can use that as it is. Use Wealthy Affiliate instead of WA and make sure that the description also appears in the first paragraph of your review. Hope that help. All the best.

Well we have a lot in common. I started in IT on the IBM 1401 and went to the 360 30 and eventually the fastest and biggest computer (at the time the 155 and 165. I managed computer operation for a major local bank. I got tired of the politics and moved into technical recruiting where I provide recruiting services to the hearing impaired (with technical experience). I learn American Sign Language while at the bank. I moved to the hearing candidates as I wasn't making any money (not that many deaf programmers in 1973) Anyway, I when from mainframe to desktop computing technical placement.

Look forward to more dialog.

Hi Hennie,

Welcome to WA!

As you are just new to the community I'd just wanted to pop by and say hi. If you have any questions on how to get started just let me know!

WA has helped 1000's of people over the years build thriving online businesses and the WA platform will provide you the tools and training to succeed as well. If you follow the training and put the work you are at some point pretty much guaranteed success.

This is one of the most supportive & helpful communities I think you'll find online, so if you have any questions I suggest using the Live chat as you will get answers very quickly. Or you can ask questions within tutorials, blogs, or directly to other members on their Spaces.

Here is the initial training that I suggest you get started with:

Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1) Welcome once again to WA and I look forward to seeing you around online.

Cheers
Sarah
