About JonLawrenson
Joined October 2014
Hi John here. I was born in East Africa and grew up on a coffee farm amidst canyons, forests and rivers in South Africa, hence my love for all things natural and adventurous. I studied nature and environmental conservation (wanting so save the world, you know how it is when you are young?). Unfortunately the caring professions pay dismally low salaries which literally meant working for the love of it. I started my own eco-travel related business and now need to generate income online. Although my passion is living sustainably off the land, in balance with God and His creation, my first attempted niche site focused on marketing green / environmentally friendly / living off the grid products, technologies & services while putting them into practice on our very own plot ... which has yet to be found and purchased! I ran out of steam on that topic so have changed niche to my 2nd attempt, a site focused around a subject that I I am already better acquainted with, marketing venues for school and church camps.

I would greatly appreciate your feedback on my sites so please visit them and leave feedback here and on the sites where I I have made more progress on my South African site www.classactreservations.co.za (you will have to copy & paste the URL's to your browser as live links don't operate in this space) ... than I have on my WA hosted site www.classactreservation.com as I yet have to find venues to fill the latter.

God bless and here's wishing you all loads of FUN!!!
JonLawrenson's Goals 3
Money Goals
Hmmmm ... at first any extra income would be great to cover costs and some bills but hopefully within 6 months from now I could grow that to a couple of hundred $ a day. A couple of years from now wouldn't it be great to see that reach 2 or 3 grand per month. From there the sky is the limit .... say 10K / month +++. Right now I work a full time job, plus my on line tourism business from home before and after work so I might only be able to grab an hour or so per day for this . But if all goes well I look forward to working for myself from home full time. I am hoping to achieve that within a year from now, say by end of 2015. (Is that possible?)

You have a great idea with "living off the grid" technologies. People really want to know how to do that and surely it should be you to show them. Best of luck and let me know if I can be of help.

Hey, I just wanted to check in and see if had a chance to start exploring Wealthy Affiliate. I know that when I first joined WA I got serious information overload. I didn't really know where to get started or what exactly I was meant to be doing.

If you haven't started the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course - that's a good place to start. It'll take you through the whole process of what online marketing is, and how to build a successful website. Click the green"Get Started Here" button on the left.

If you're seriously lost or need help with ANYTHING, drop me a message on my profile or ask someone in chat :) Live chat is an awesome tool and there's usually someone that can solve your problem right away!

hi nat, if I upgrade to premium by paying the $19 for first month, am I committed to compulsory debit order for the 47 / month thereafter or can I pay manually if and when I can afford it?

You have to consider the hosting of your website. WA provides this service for free for premium members, but if you cancel your membership, you'll need to find hosting outside WA to keep your website live.

(hosting is where your website files are stored)

You can absolutely cancel any time, but if you want to keep working on your website without a WA membership, you need to move it to another host, which will cost you about $100/year (12 month commitment) depending on the company you choose.

Thanks N
So if I upgrade from starter to premium but could not keep up the monthly payment do I go back to starter level access to WA or does that cancel my whole WA membership?

Hi Nat, I think I will wait a while before upgrading to premium while I go through all the training as a starter, I am on the build your own website page. cheers john

Yes, you'll have to cancel your membership because there's no way to go back to starter.

Take your time building your website, even if you stay starter for longer than 7 days. You can continue to work on your websites for free even after your access to live chat/questions on WA expires.

Thanks Nathaniell
I don't have the funds to upgrade to Premium yet so will see how far I can get along with basic for a while. Yeah the community sure do answer quickly. I got here via your One More Cup Of Coffee review of
BinaryMatrixPro ..... I just wondered if you actually tried it yourself?
Cheers
John

Haven't tried binary matrix pro, but I have seen the devastation that products like these cause. One guy lost over $45,000 of his retirement money because they kept asking him to deposit funds. The brokers are as bad as the scammers that sell these "apps" or "software".

I have NEVER seen a real binary trader say anything good about these programs.
