About IngiB
Joined July 2015
My name is ingi and I was a drummer for 40 years. A fellow musician and I started up an all girl band (Clout) in South Africa, which was successful in the 70's and 80's and I have traveled a very interesting road since then.
I exited the music industry in the 90's as I had two children and I wanted to spend as much time with them as possible while they were growing up. Being a musician meant constantly being on the road on tour. Not a lot of time to be at home or for family life!. I lived in Germany for almost 19 years and then moved back to South Africa, the country of my birth in the late 90's..
For the last 8 years I have been making and selling generic perfumes in South Africa (not online) and now that my two sons have left home and are both doing their own thing, I want to do mine on the internet!
My passion is Self Growth, helping people to discover their true power, cars and Animals, specifically cats (I have nine), and I am on my way to finding a way to pursue my passion working on my computer from home.
I love living my life and I want to spread the joy!

Thank you Kyle. I have elbows and I have tons of grease and I am raring to go. A little nervous as I am technically not the best - I didn't grow up with computers so it isn't something that comes naturally to me, but I am determined to make it work, there are things I want to do!
How do I add you as a buddy or send a buddy message?
I started writing a looooong message to you, then went to another page to see if I could find some info on that and came back and had lost the whole thing so had to start over.

I know this isn't a get rich quick scheme, but I am desperate to stop what I am doing (making and selling generic perfumes door to door) - I am sick and tired of it though it helped me get through the mess I found myself in when my Production Company (run by my eldest son - I had semi retired) was broken into and all the equipment stolen in 2007. 8 Apple Mac G5's with 32" flat screens, and all other related equipment. I had to liquidate my business and find something else to do at the age of 50! Now I am nearly 60 but still feel young and no different than when I was 30!
I think I need to get my existing perfume business online though I don't know if that will work. I did a test run with 600 of my regular customers on a CRM system that I was test driving and only 4 people responded, so not sure if that will work. I would appreciate your input here as I think I need to start with getting that online so I can keep money coming in as I build my IM business. I have an emailing list of about 12,000 people that I have collected over the last couple of years.
I am sure I can offer them something other than perfume and EVERYONE is always looking for ways to make some extra money or replace their day job.
I need some help on that and would appreciate your input as I am just about to start day 2 of training and need to get a site up quick.
I will be signing up as a premium member in the next few days and already have 3 people who want to get started as well, so I am going to get my affiliate link and send it to them. Should I just sign up for premuim now? I know I am going to be sticking around.

I am interested in Reading, Self growth and improvement , music, and mostly helping people to find their own selves and realize their absolute power. I write poetry, and started writing a book:
"8 Steps on how to live and love your life regardless of what is happening to or around you!" so I eventually want to create an ebook out of that.
Please point me in the right direction.
There is so much in my head, so much I want to do and I need to monetize fast ( I know this isn't a get rich quick scheme, but I also know if there is a will there is a way and I definitely have the will and am prepared to put in the work if it kills me!!
I have to pick the right niche now to start off with and would really appreciate your input.

On another note, I see the pic of you with the tiger, a good friend of mine is the LION MAN of NEW ZEALAND - Craig Bush, who has just opened a big cat park in the Cradle of Human Kind here in SA.
If you haven't been here yet, I think you should think about coming out for a visit at some stage! AND we could run some workshops while you are here.

I am really looking forward to hearing back from you!
Peace and Light from sunny South Africa!

P.S. I am breathing and Alive - It is therefore an awesome week!!~

So you're here to learn how to make money, right? First things first, make sure you start by checking out the "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started" course (Level 1). This is a task based step by step guide that will walk you through setting up your online business. Here's the link: Something you'll soon learn about the community here is there are tons of helpful people always willing to lend a hand. Feel free to dive in and ask any questions within the community you may have. Those that interact are more likely to succeed. :) You can access the getting started classroom here:

★★★How to Get Your Bonus★★★

1. You are going to be getting a 59% discount on your first month premium - (that's just $19)
2. You'll get personal and private access to me. If you ever need any help going forward, I'll be here to help you out.
4. I will send you Jay's live video training "Live Case Study in Real Time" - you'll get to watch an expert build a niche website in REAL TIME!
3. I also am going to send you Steve's "Business From Scratch" tutorial. This is an awesome piece of training that can really clear up any initial confusion you may have.

Hi Wendy,
Awesome to be welcomed so quickly, thank you, I really appreciate that.
I have been wanting to get into internet marketing for the last ten years but have only taken the step now and I must say I am a little nervous as I am not very computer literate though I can do all the basics. One thing I will say is that I am determined to make it happen so I will need all the help I can get. I have gotten so confused just getting here!
I am currently selling generic perfumes and I am so tired of knocking on doors, I have to get out of my current business and get a life on the internet! Which I am hoping to do by starting an online business - affiliate marketing.
I have been looking at so many courses, one of them being the Unstoppable Affiliate from Andrew Hansen. I then landed up on a review site which said his course is out of date which is how I ended up on Wealthy Affiliate.
I am going to start the free course and I want to upgrade at the end of the 7 days. From what I see and hear, this is the best place to be.
I look forward to working with you and getting myself up and running soonest!
Warm regards from sunny South Africa!
Peace and light,
ingi

Well I'm glad you landed here, Ingi! Man, I would get tired of knocking on doors too, that must not be fun. People aren't very kind to door to door salespeople these days.

You can certainly learn all about affiliate marketing here and you could even try to sell your perfumes online instead of door to door, you would probably have MUCH more success because you can attract the right types of people. Of course, you can do absolutely anything you want, just trying to give you an idea :)

I love your ideas and want to soak them all up. Yes, I also want to put my perfumes online locally. I was wondering if I should do that first. I already have the domain name and emails.
I still need to keep this business going until I am earning through IM and I would love to find an easier way. I once tried a quick test using a CRM that I wanted to buy. I sent a mail to 600 of my 12,000 email list and I only got 4 replies. Not sure if I have spoiled them by calling on them in person all the time, but now I need to change their habits and my way of communicating with them, so I would love to find a way to do that from this platform. Please do give me your thoughts on that.
I would love one on one contact initially to help me get up and running so I think I should upgrade now, though I want to see what the freebie is all about so that I know for my future customers. I have already sent my affiliate link to three people who want to get into IM too. Just sent it out now so hoping they will all go and sign up as free members to start. I suppose in doing that I have just taken my first steps without even having set up a website! lol.
