Welcome to our profile and thank you for sparing some of your valuable time to find out a bit about who we are. Far too many people come online to create their dream lifestyle and hop from one opportunity to another without giving any of them the correct amount of effort of time to work. Rome was not built in a day as they say! We have been very guilty of ‘shiny object syndrome’ in the past so it is vitally important to us that you do NOT go down the same road!

Together we have over 22 years of experience working full time online and have seen many things come and go.

We live in the UK in the stunning English Riviera, so called because of its unusually warm and healthy climate compared to the vast majority of Britain! We actually have palm trees that grow here!

We have a great desire to help others create the kind of lifestyle that we enjoy – no boss, no commute, time freedom, creating financial freedom which gives so many choices in life.

We are an advert for all of you that might be asking yourself “can i do this?”

Believe me, when I (Jon) started online in August 2008, I had just been laid off and did not know what to do. I could just about send an email and surf the net!! Now, fast forward to today, and I co-own an online business that makes us money each and every month and is growing exponentially.

My beautiful wife Debbie was also laid off from her corporate job a year after me in 2009 and she too decided that being the master of her own destiny was the way to go! We absolutely love the freedom that having an online business gives you. Being there for your kids, (we have 4!) both doing the school run and being there for ALL their school plays, open days, appointments etc is priceless.

Having both been laid off, we realised that we did not want to rely on someone else designing our future, so we took the steps to create our own! “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” —Thomas Edison

Believe me when I say we have tried a whole heap of things along our online journey to get to where we are. We have tried online franchises, we ran a successful ecommerce business in the holistic wellness arena for several years, affiliate marketing, local business marketing (we still have a few clients who we help with their online marketing) and much more.

Hobbies and Interests

We both love anything to do with holistic healing – we are both Reiki attuned and believe greatly that many ailments are caused by the mind and are preventable. We also have 4 kids ranging from 11 to 25, 3 of whom live at home, so they keep us busy – bet you can relate to Dads taxi!!

Debbie loves to make jewellery and I love football (I have supported Bristol City FC since I was a boy). I also love nice cars and am working towards owning an Aston Martin at some point soon.

We also have 3 big dogs which take up some of our time – Honey is our Golden Retriever and Miley and Bear are our 2 Newfoundlands.

One of our ambitions is to work with charities in impoverished countries enabling them to have clean water and education. We will definitely be involving the kids as we feel this is a great life lesson for them.

We feel confident that we can share our ideas, thoughts and strategies with you, so lets get communicating. Please feel free to get in touch and tell us where you are on your own online business journey.
We wish you all EVERY success on your online journey.

Very realistic goals - you can definitely achieve those goals so long as you follow the training :)

Superb goals Jonathan! You have a large network and community here at WA that you can leverage for help and support along the way, myself included.

It all starts with a goal...then is followed by action...then is followed by results. This is going to be how it pans out for you and I can't wait to hear about all of your successes in the days, weeks, and months ahead! :)

Your goals are achievable, I am almost 2months into WA and am working up to 9 hours daily on my website. I am 100% sure I will come victorious at the end because I saw know reason not to succeed with such a wonderful community like WA.

Every part of information you might need to grow your business is available here, either in text or in video form. And if that doesn't give the answer you are looking for, the community is ever waiting for questions in live chats and classroom.
Have nice time and I wish you all the best.

Hello Jonathan and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring back to the training, but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

Thanks for following me. Following you as well. I enjoyed reading your bio. This is my first foray into running an online business or any business for that matter. I hope to create for myself and my family the type of life that you have made. I look forward to reading your future posts..
All the best

Jon And Debbie,
So many thoughts come to mind in reading your Bio, all of which I would like to respond to, given the proper amount of time.
At this moment I will start with just two
1.) Exceptional clarity of your content. Drives my attention like a smooth running Aston Martin through countryside.(though I've never been, I know their reputation) I would learn so much about writing composition reading your posts...lol, so I will!
2.) A charmed and balanced life which I find a great deal of comfort in reading about...so unlike the bustling chaos of our own at this moment. Alas, too many commitments stretches the energies thin. However I do take time to Stretch and Read something new each day to keep my mind relaxed and balanced

Looking forward to the future prospect of learning more about your thoughts and insights. Love love what I've read so far...Shine Brilliant till then

Respectfully David

Thank you David for such an amazing message. We wrote our profile in the hope of inspiring people to keep going when the going gets tough - which it does from time to time.

We do thankfully - now - have a balanced life but that has come with practise. When we have a really full on busy week we always counter it the following week with a more relaxed one.

We are big into mindset and gratitude journaling (blog post coming soon!) and feel that this has been a major factor in our successes in life and also business.

We love to give value and look forward to sharing a ton as we go along this WA journey.

Thank you again for your kind words and we wish you all the best

Hi, Jon/Lake! I just read your profile and it sounds like you guys have this online thing figured out. I'm just getting started and I'm still trying to decide on my "niche". I was going to select personal development, but Kyle said that would be a trap, that I should narrow it down.So now I'm thinking about using Brainwave entrainment for a niche. I've been using personal development books and tools for years, and I believe in the holistic approach towards wellness. I've been using brainwave entrainment for years. I've had over 21 major surgeries including cancer in 2011 and I always use holistic techniques along with mainstream medicine to get me through them. Some people might say that if you had so many surgeries, it doesn't look like it's working, but, personally, I don't think I'd be alive or willing and able to get out of bed if I didn't use them! I've read about Reiki, but I haven't tried it yet. I won't take up any more of your time, but if you get a chance, can you let me know what you think about BWE for a niche or maybe Solfeggio Frequencies, or Reiki? or would I be better of using something more tangible? Thanks for foilowing, I'll follow you back!

Hi Rich
Thanks for your message and reaching out.

There is a lot of talk on the internet as to whether you should have an interest in your niche or not! Many so called gurus say you should and many say it doesn't matter.

After 9 years online, I strongly believe that it really helps if you have an interest otherwise you get bored and/or stuck with what to create content on.

Kyle is spot on when he suggest you niche down from the huge personal development niche to something slightly smaller within it.

One of the biggest determining factors is are there enough products that you can promote in your chosen niche.

For example Solfeggio Frequencies - just that keyword alone gets over 12000 searches each month and the competition is low, but are there enough products to sell?

Brainwave entrainment (brain training) and binaural beats are hugely popular and there are a ton of products you can promote.

If you have enough info that you can create content about then this could be your niche.

The world has become more and more accepting of mindset training etc in recent years and it is not likely to slow down.

Obviously, the choice is yours at the end of the day, we just wanted to give you a bit of helpful advice. Until you get into it there is no telling how successful it could be, but as long as you have a large hungry audience, you should be ok.

Hope that helps

All the best

Thank you very much for your reply and, yes it does help me alot. You're right, it's confusing sometimes deciding which niche! I'm passionate about brainwave entrainment and your searches indicate that it's popular now so I'm going to give that one a shot.

Thanks again for your help and best of luck and continued success to you both. Be sure to post a picture of that Aston Martin when you get it!
