About Johnwnewman
Joined December 2013
Hi, my name is John, I'm married with 4 daughters, living in Perth in Western Australia, although I am, and will always be a "Tassie boy" at heart :-)

Before joining Wealthy Affiliate in 2013, I was on the path of personal growth and chasing various paths to financial freedom to make a better life for myself and my family.

Unfortunately, those paths didn't work out, but thankfully, I found WA and I haven't looked back.

There have been a lot of ups and downs, but after starting with no experience online, I have built websites, written eBooks, created online courses and made some money along the way as well!

My best advice to anyone joining WA is to stick the course... Follow the training, keep learning, work hard, ask questions, and keep creating content.

It's not a get-rich-quick-scheme here, there is no such thing as an overnight success!

Don't get hung up on the outcome, success will come!

But the most important thing is to enjoy it!

Building an online business is fun, so enjoy the process along the way :-)

To your freedom...

Hello, John. Thank you for the encouragement. I just joined WA about one month ago, so I'm staying busy learning, studying, and working on my website. My website was just indexed on Google, so I'm excited about that!

I'm always open to ideas and suggestions. Feel free to send or post anything you think might help a newbie like me.

Thanks.

Frank

Hi! John,

I appreciate your generous support in addressing the reality in WA, which I totally agreed to. I will certainly follow your suggestion to work hard so to welcome the expected success in time. I trust you and thank you.

With your WA seniority and success, I would like to invite you to review few of my WA posts and www.ebettercare.com (if time allows) and give your skeptical comments and suggestions so to push this digital baby into its designated orbit of the E-marketing sphere as soon as possible.

Happy holidays,


Chin

Thank you for this! I always am looking for instant...just always in a hurry. I have learned that money isn't everything, and it sure doesn't equal success! So my goal is to be successful in my own right, not in the eyes of dollars and cents, nor in the eyes of others, but in my own eyes.

Just happy to see others that have been here more that a couple of months and have made a career here at WA.

Thank you again for your inspiration.................

John,

I agree. The training is key to everything else. I also love getting comments that help me make my websites more readable. The community here is so helpful. I came into this knowing that it may take a year to see appreciable outcome. That's why I paid for a year in advance. And it was a good deal as well.

Hello John. Thanks for the follow and for the good advice. My wife and I have been working our own business for the past ten years and are just now truly getting started. I guess it's true that it takes 10 years to become an "overnight success"? Anyway, I've got my website that I've had for nearly 5 years that I am just now taking seriously and am here to learn how to utilize my asset better. So much to learn! I look forward to reading your posts and hearing more from you. Peace - William

Hey John,

Stopped by to thank you for connecting with me, I appreciate it!
Haven’t spent full 24 hours here at WA, every new connection, is worth celebrating, haha.

Occasionally the tasks and challenges you are facing, may appear more complicated than they really are, whatever you are working on right now - You Got This!
Best of luck.

See you around!

I have always believed in online business since I first had a computer. It is the future just like cash money is the past. Everything you need is online. Started using debit cards 15 years ago and had a small business with eBay that totally depended on Paypal and debit cards. That is when I first thought of selling online and really wanted to do a dropship business. Tried to learn but the courses I took only wanted to upsell me. Lucky for me that I now found WA.

Hi John,

Thanks for the honesty about overnight success. I am now unemployed so need to make money fast over next month or so. Or at least get proof of concept.

My niche with be around the mindset and method (WA) to launch a business mid life. I am 54 and know what it is like to feel washed up.

Reckon this is possible with commitment?

Cheers

Anythings possible with commitment, but if you want quick money, you may need to rob a bank. (kidding, don't do it) Seriously, it's not a quick fix here at WA, success takes time, but you've still got it! You're not washed up yet!

Thanks, David, I have heard of that guy, but I didn't realise he was from Perth.
Yes, I use CF for my landing pages etc.
And I have been here for 3.5 years now, always on the up! :-)

Dmk71152 Premium
Well hopefully I will have 3 CF's ready in a day or two and in a way we can give them personalized to others and ready to use for a program we are creating. it takes work and i am not a tech savvy person.

Hello John!
G'day mate!

Thank you so much for following me and for liking one of my comments. I will follow you too!

That's great to hear that you come from Perth. For more than 10 years ago I stayed in Freemantle visiting an english course. It was a childhood dream for me to travel to Australia! Made some excursions to Perth of course - beautiful skyline! An awesome time, so exciting.

John, you have done a fantastic journey here at WA and in the online business. I will follow your advices and do my best to achieve my dream of becoming an online entrepreneur like you.

Wish you an ongoing success with your projects! See you around in the community! I'm looking forward working together with you.

Good on ya,
Pernilla

I have similar beliefs and goals, I like your profile and I hope to hear more from you and your progress. I'm starting to dive deeper into the training mostly due to the fact of how busy I am in my present business but I'm really intrigued with the online world. Wishing you and your loved ones a great 2017. I will be following you. Cheers!!!

Awesome stuff John.

Just wanted to say hi and tell you that I am going to try and follow the same basic 12 to 36 month business model that you have basically laid out for everyone to follow in your bio.

I will say this. I just recently became a member a few days ago and have had two already backed up a few times and retrain. I did not think the process would be easy however my initial thoughts were I can have this set up and running in no time. Becoming a member and creating the basic website was pretty easy however it gets a little complicated after that and sometimes a little frustrating but as you Illustrated in your bio your updates at 12, 24 and 36 months, has given me a "New Perspective" on my short-term as well as long term goals and accomplishments.

I can only hope to someday in the near future have a bio as motivating and as seasoned as yours.

Brad..

Thanks Brad!
Being persistent and consistent is the key!
Yes, it does take work, but just think what you can accomplish in 5 years time if you put in the time and effort... AND what will happen if you do nothing?
I know the second one is not a lot ;-)
Best of luck :-)

Ho John,
thank you for following me. it is great to meet you.
the information in your profile is encouraging. I am going through the growing pains but I know that success is a journey and I am ready for it.
totally agree with you. Sitting at the computer for a long time, even if you have good posture habit, could give you discomfort and that is why standing, taking short walks around the room and stretching is highly recommended.

thank you again...
we will be in touch.

Hi, John from Perth, AU.
Paul Mindra here from Ontario, Canada.

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your Network. I am very pleased to be acquainted with someone like you that has been here for a lengthy period of time.

I am just getting started, and will have something up and running soon for comments. My ultimate goal is to develop an Online Course (long term goal), but first things first...the education, getting started and executing a launch of a basic website and foundation.

I really look forward to learning, sharing and serving with you as I move forward on my journey.

Kindest Regards,

Paul.

Glad to meet you!
Thanks for adding me to your network, and I am sure I could learn a lot from you. Congrats on the sale of your ebook! I would like to hear some details on how you did that. I am considering doing that as well.Maybe you should consider a training on it?
Best of luck to you,

Hey John, I'm from the other side of Australia; Adelaide...sounds like you're kicking a lot of goals in the online world, I really hope to achieve the same level of success that you're currently experiencing...I noticed that you mentioned you sold an ebook, I'm actually thinking of writing one myself about teaching parents to teach their kids how to improve their financial IQ.

Any suggestions of where to start? and how I can market it successfully?

Thanks for your time by the way!

Adelaide's not that far away, I have driven there from WA without sleeping, but I was a lot younger ;-)
Great that you want to write an eBook, I will get back to you in a PM :-)
