About JohnA78
Joined August 2016
Hi guys, my name is John and I'm from Mexico NY. My wife and I have been looking for ways to get out of the rat race and provide a better life for us and our three kids. I look forward to working with Wealthy Affiliate and learning all I can about online business.

Currently, I'm working as an electrician for a company that manufactures packaging machinery. As much as I like my job, it just doesn't have the charm that a stay at home, work from anywhere occupation has :)

My hobbies include photography, go kart racing, hunting and fishing, video gaming and traveling. Plenty of niches to choose from, just need a good place to start. Our newest addition, a chocolate lab pup named Marty, keeps us plenty busy and entertained too!

Well, I'm looking forward to starting my WA training and getting my first website up and running. Good luck and thanks for stopping by!

WELCOME TO Wealthy Affiliate Premium! :)

You've made a great decision and if you stick with your goals, you will actually amaze yourself! I don't know about you, but I love it when I surprise myself haha :)

John, 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 John.

Hey Kyle, thanks for checking up on me. I know you have a ton of stuff to keep you busy, so little things like this mean a lot.

The super affiliate conference is definitely on my to do list. I will see you there someday. Promoting WA has been a fun learning experience and I'm looking forward to working with you far into the future.

The support group here has answered any questions I've had in the past and Site Support has taken care of my tickets in a reasonable amount of time. You have a well oiled machine here and I'm glad to have found Wealthy Affiliate.

Thanks again Kyle and I'll talk to you later!

John,
Just paid a visit to your site Affiliate and Grow Rick. It's clean and uncluttered, unlike so many. It's easy to navigate. It's formatted for the visitor in mind. It's a WINNER!
Plus, your style of writing, as a visitor, is inviting, clear, devoid of all the BS that is so prevalent on other sites...and best of all...you don't claim instant Get Rich Quick secret formulas. How novel!!
Excellent site and you are on your way.

Hi Thomas. Thank you for taking the time to review my website. I appreciate when people go out of their way to help me out like that. When I have a little more time, I'll do the same for you.

In the mean time, I wish you and yours all the best and I hope to see you around.

Thanks again,
John

Hello John from Mexico and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
A wee bit confusing for a UK resident (Mexico in New York lol)
Anyway since you joined in August you will have come to realise that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
Saying that if you get stuck then can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
Thank you for the follow and I will follow you as well.
Remember, you get stuck you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

Would you believe that just north of Mexico, New York there is a town called Little Texas? True story.

No probs - I know there's an Edinburgh in the US and also in Australia.
Bet you didn't know it was one of my ancestors that started the Topeka and Aitchison Railroad?
Enjoy your Friday.

John, nice to hear from you. Nice pooch. I bet he is a bit rowdy!

You do have some hobbies that will form good niches. I had a look at the affiliate website. It looks good but on the landing page your menu overlaps your banner a bit. You might need to space it out a bit.

I couldn't get into your other site. I got a 'http error 500' when I tried. I only know this is at the web owners end so can't help you on that one.

Continue to work hard, have some fun and do keep in touch.

Hello,
John, I want to thank you for following me. I am following you now as well. If you are new to website building, as I am, might I recommend the Yoast SEO instead of All In One SEO. It makes the task so much easier. Much success to you. Be sure to ask questions.

Hello John, ♫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. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right, the first website link (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

Hi Loes and thank you for following me!

Just last night, I found your lesson on how to remove the final end screen from any Youtube video. Very helpful as I went merrily along adding videos to my pages :) I will definitely keep an eye out for your other training lessons!

Thanks again and all the best to you, too!

Hi, John. Welcome to WA and thanks for following me. I will follow you as well. All of the above would be excellent niche opportunities with great potential.

We are all different in how we are made and our perspective on things kind of goes with that as well. What I mean is, that even though there are others with similar niches out there, you will be coming at it from a different perspective and with some new info that WILL appeal to people. You can do this and the community will help, (which you already know).

I look forward to hearing/reading about your success as you continue this journey. All the best to you and your family...Wayne.

Thanks Wayne, all the best to you and yours, too.

I wrote something very similar to what you said in my Success and What It Means to Me blog, so I know just what you mean about different perspectives.

Thanks for the follow and I will see you around!

Hi John, thanks for the follow and welcome to WA.
I worked in the packaging industry in the mid 1980's doing installation, start up and operator training. I worked with form-fill-seal plus case packaging of food products.
This is a lot less stressful and more fun. Hoping you have great success with WA.:-) Jerry Mc

Hi John, thanks for following me - it's nice to meet you here at WA!

I wish you to become an AWESOME online marketer (if you aren't already :) ) and live a life of your dreams!

My greatest passion is video games and I strongly believe that games can influence our lives in a very positive and beneficial way. I'm always ready and willing to discuss the topic, so feel free to contact me anytime, if you're even slightly interested.

Also, if you ever need anything, have questions to ask, thoughts to share or just want to chat – just send me a message and I will try to help as best I can.

Cheers, good luck and see you around!

Hi Dmitriy and thank you for following me! I'm definitely on the same page as you about gaming. I grew up playing Atari and NES games and have had the privilege of watching video games evolve over the years. Now one of my favorite things to do is see what my kids have created playing Minecraft.

Best wishes to you and i will see you around!

Dmitriy Premium
Oh yeah, Minecraft was kinda forced on me like that also - my eldest son LOVES it and we even play it together sometimes. Sometimes it's really strange to see what video games have become, especially when you remember your childhood...

Anyway, thanks for reaching out, John, best of all to you, too!

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! :)

hey john - thanks for the follow
i hope you are settling in to WA, 'tis a good place to be
go through the training before you buy a domain, just to be sure you have the right niche for yourself.
once you go premium - you are going to aren't you ? no seriously there is no pressure to go premium - use the top bar to ask questions and poss websites? ( don't tell them i said so)
it is more difficult but probably can be done - i went yearly after the week.
if you need a hand please shout
have fun
