Hi my name is John,

Little Background About Myself

I was born in December 1949 in Lancaster which is in the North of England. My father was born and raised in Pontypool, South Wales and could sing, his favorite song was "The Old Rugged Cross". My mother was born in Southern Ireland.

In the early years, my sister and I stayed with our grandparents in Pontypool, South Wales, whilst our parents were working in Lancaster. In the 50s we did not have entertainment available to us such as TV, Radio, Computers, and Internet so we had to use our Imaginations as kids and find our own entertainment.

At the age of 13 joined the army cadets and enjoyed every minute of it. From a raw cadet, I worked my way up to sergeant and drill instructor, and drum major in our band.

In 1965 at the age of 15, I left school and took up an apprenticeship as a boilermaker/welder in the construction industry and finally after 5 years got my trade papers.
Rugby Union

In 1970, I was introduced to Ruby union by my Tech teacher at College. I always remember my very first game, I played for the opposition against my own club and scored 2 tries, which meant my club team had been beaten. Comment from the club was "you were not meant to score against us" never played for an opposing side again and eventually played first grade. Loved the Rugby Union and played 14 years in the UK and after emigrating to Australia played another 3 years.
Australian Volunteer Air Patrol

In 1984 at Christmas time My wife gave me an envelope as my present which I thought was a bit of a joke. Inside was a prepaid 3 hours of flying lessons. Well, 3 hours soon passed, so I continued taking flying lessons and joined the "VAP" (volunteer air patrol) which was later changed to "Australian Civil Air Patrol" and obtained my private pilot's license. My 20 years with the ACAP ended on a sad note, after a training session, on takeoff we lost one aircraft killing all 4 on board.

An exciting life. The first year I taught flying we had an accident and a fatality at our school. Some very valuable lessons there. Both were pilot error. I could tell you stories. Any way all the best here at WA.

Hello John,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also 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. I just wrote my 100th training for WA. I have categorized them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

It is only a revolving door if you decide to make it that. This is the best site on the internet to learn everything you need to know about affiliate marketing and how to apply that knowledge to your new online business. Good Luck to you and God Bless.

Hi Kyle

Thanks for checking in on me.

I have a question regarding keyword tool. When I carry out a search, which is fine. I am a bit confused as to what QSR in competition means!
Reply
Kyle Premium
That is the number of pages in all of Google's search engine that have that exact term on it.

JohnProbert1 Premium
Thanks Kyle,

I know the about me page is a little bit undone. Like a lot of other people, I do have a problem writing about myself but at work I can blab on face to face. I am working on this to improve the content.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Your about me page is in essence, a page just about you. Why are you interested in this particular niche and why do you want to help others out? Share that along with a bit about yourself and an image and you will be just fine.

There is no right or wrong with an about me page, it is simply a page about you and you can dictate what is said on that page (and you can always update this as you progress within your niche).

Here is some training that will help you out on the About Me page. If you want me to take a look at it after it is published I will be happy to help you out. Hope this helps John!

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! :)
