About JBonn
Joined March 2016
Hi I'm James
I'm a 46 year old Manufacturing Engineer.
I'm married with 3 kids and 1 grandchild.
I love the Lord, my family and my job (it's true).
We live in northern Illinois and actually like the weather out here.
We are on a tight budget and I'm looking to diversify our income to give us more freedom and flexibility to travel.
I have a great number of interests:
Camping
Atv-ing
Mountain biking
Snowmobiling
Working on anything with an engine
Remote controlled cars, planes and helicopters
Playing piano and drums
Watching movies
Wealthy Affiliate looks like the vehicle that will help me reach my goals in a way that is honoring to the Lord and helps many people along the way.
I look forward to the journey.

James, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend.

My only claim to knowledge of Illinois is that I drove through there once many long years ago. Down from the border at Emerson, diagonally to Chicago, around to Detroit and back up to Ontario. As I remember it the countryside was pretty good.

Hope you are travelling well here.

Keep working hard, have some fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Ciao
Helen

James, 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 James.

Hello and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
There's lots of help here within WA for Newbies.
Internet marketing is a steep learning curve though so can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
I'm sure you will go away with lots of tips and advice.
Thank you for the follow as well and I will follow you.
Remember, you get stuck, you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

Hi James it’s a good idea, but only if you want to, to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it like I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you do like will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved.
Enjoy your day.

Hello James, ♫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. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under training (click on my picture). 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. See you around, Greetings Loes

How are things going today? Just wanted to pop in to see how things are going with you thus far and how your website/niche is coming along.

Hope you are rocking it James and of course (and as always) I am in your corner if you ever need anything!

PS. Today is my last day for Premium bonuses, if you are interested in getting them make sure you upgrade today.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Hey James,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well James and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

I hope things are going well James! I want to remind you of one thing, your hard work and dedication IS going to pay off. Keep working through the training, communicating within the community, and of course, ask for help when you need it.

Just heading out for a bit here, but do leave me a message if you need a hand with anything. You should have Premium communication back for an additional 7 days now, so hit me up when you get a chance James!

Hi Kyle, things are going well.
I've spent most of my career in manufacturing talking to machines (programming), and not people. I have to admit social media is out of my comfort zone so I haven't spent much time there. One of the questions I have is about the "follow" link. Do you follow someone that you think is interesting and want to learn more about?
Or is there some unwritten social media rule that says you are supposed to follow as many people as possible for rank or status or something?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, follow anyone that you think is interesting and you will be notified whenever they post a blog/training/discussion here at WA. This is basically your network here within the community.

You don't have to follow as many people as you can, follow people whom you want to network with, learn more about. Nothing more complex than that.
Reply
Kyle Premium
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?". lol

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 at me! :)

Hi James,

Talking to Machines is what I do a lot of my time as well and I'm not as into Social Media as some. That doesn't hold me back in anyway in regards to running a thriving online business. I suggest sticking to the training because we do not teach much about Social Media until Course #4 of the Certification set of courses.

Following folks here at WA simply lets our system know that you may be interested in being notified by email when they ask questions or post a blog. It's a good way to stay connected with others. The more people that you follow, the more people that you will meet and get to know within WA. It's not required at all though. Sometimes its powerful to be notified about other people's questions because you may have the same ones. You can always "Unfollow" someone. There is a constant stream of very helpful content flowing into WA every minute, so the people you "Follow" will determine what you are notified about.

Hope that helps!
