I want to follow you. I was impressed by your comment over with
MikeC69 on decision making.
I wrote a funny response to alan47 , saying I'll follow you, but you got to keep it moving! How will we find our higher selves if we stay safe, pro? crastinate, and put it all off until it's too late. (Shouldn't it be anti? crastinate. What do you think? Hmm!)
Not a "Pro" at crastination

But I sure liked your thought process, James.
Yes, if we don't go within, we go without,
and gain nothing.

Hi Suzay.
Sorry for the late reply. Had car stolen and burnt out. Taken time out to sort out insurance and get new new vehicle so I can go on holiday.

Most people never achieve anything because they are preconditioned not to try.

Best of luck.

Hi Rich.
Thanks for your message. I was in the RAMC for over 13 years. My problem is not just arthritis but stenosis of the c spine. I have had both knees replaced by was confined to a wheelchair for 5 months which atrophied my leg muscles. I was in the process of building up my leg muscles when I developed stenosis.

Might be interesting to get a second opinion from the Colonel. After all I was trained to believe nothing is impossible or unattainable (not strictly true). Pity my hobbies were mountain walking, jogging and horse riding but now I have WA. Still very happy and positive. So if you would kindly provide contact details I will contact the good Colonel and see what he recommends.

Many thanks.

Jim

Thanks for connecting with me, James - always nice to meet a fellow Brit and a fellow Veteran here!
I don't know if you're aware but there is a RAMC Colonel permanently based at the Robert & Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital in Oswestry who specializes in treating disabled Veterans.
I heard of a guy who needed both hips and a knee replaced and he had it all done within 3 months of going for his consultation.
I've got service-related arthritis in my knees, hips and shoulders , albeit mild, and I'll be contacting him myself soon.
If you PM me, I can give the contact details if you're not aware already.
Wishing you much success on your WA journey :-)
Cheers
Rich

Hi Kerjackie.
Thank you for your reply. I have written two large A4 books on saving money (Combined Charities Money Savers Manual & The Recession Buster Challenge) plus a book on the best UK home business opportunities (Unlimited Income - UK Home Business Directory) plus a book on weight management called (Think Yourself Slimmer). All available from the self publishers Lulu.com.

I loved the layout of your website, so colorful, inviting, friendly and upbeat. Sadly I could find no link to arthritis. I would like to see more content and the content arranged perhaps into sub-headings. Just to be easier to navigate and know what the content relates to. I would love to know what theme you are using for your site. It's stunning.

Many thanks.

Hello Jim,
Thank you for your nice comments on my website.
This is impressive how many books you wrote. Congratulations!.
The theme I am using is through Wordpress and is called SYDNEY. It has a lot of potential for expansion.
I will certainly follow your advice on adding instructional links to the articles I write.
I wish you much success in your online business.

Hi James, thanks for folowing me.
I am a seaman, and I have written ten books, all published. I had the same idea as you. Unfortunately it didn't work out.
I wish you better luck with yours.
Kind regards

Thanks Helldale.
I found writing books easy but selling and marketing them very difficult. How do you market a book (on saving money) that would benefit every household in the UK? The market is too large.

I have written a book on UK home business ventures called 'Unlimited Income - UK Home Business Directory' and that's were I found Wealthy Affiliate.

I wanted to join the Navy when I was 16 but ended up in the Royal Army Medical Corp for over 13 years.

Good luck with WA.

Hi James,
I am a German, but I wrote my books, mainly about adventures in Far East and Japan, in the english language, bcause I wanted to sell them on the US market.
If you are lucky the publisher will advertise your books. I tried to sell my books like an affiliate does, using Facebook, Twitter, site exchanges, mailing lists etc. As I said, without success.
The problem is, there are 100.000 books on the market to choose from. The chances that people choose yours are very dim.
However, you need traffic,. Therefore WA may be the right place.
The drawback is, you are suppose3d to write 3 posts per week about your niche. Are you prepared to write 150 posts per year about your books?
I wish you best of luck, but it will not be easy.

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! :)
