About Jrowlands
Joined November 2015
So where do I start.
Reason for me wanting to be part of an online business. I've worked the past 20 years in the customer service industry any where from wire and cable sales, building a customer list from nothing to having a 8 million a year business. Only to get a base salary and a very small commission for all my hard work and stress.

I have also worked with a great company that connecting consumers with products in stores. I've worked with operations to manage a team of staff across Canada. Some of the renovations included Sony, Microsoft, Toshiba, Samsung in big box locations. Some jobs were high profile installations, which required all hands on deck. I enjoyed the interaction with my clients and seeing the final product installed. Seeing them pleased with our work was enough for me. Job well done!

What frustrated me over the years was the lack of accountability within organizations and people. We had meetings monthly on peoples positions and their tasks to complete before handing off, and still people would not take responsibility for the team or themselves. This would put stress on me as I would have to pick up where they didn't finish. I started to resent my job, as I felt being under paid and under appreciated for all the extra work I did.

So the question came up "do you want to stay home?". At the beginning of Nov my wife asked if I would want to stay home and raise our little guy and then be home for our twins that are due in April. I said yes. This would be a new chapter in our lives, I would start a new career of being a stay home dad. And I love every minute of it.

Since being off I just wanted to be part of something again to keep me active and to earn some extra pocket money. That is when I found WA. I have been part of the wealthy Affiliate for a month and it has giving me the drive to succeed. Each step of the way your are accountable for your actions. From signing up as a premium member, deciding on a niche or bootcamp, then taking on the task of following each lesson step by step and not skipping any training. Then determining a domain name and writing content for your website. Each of these steps are absolute up to you. You are accountable! No one else, you can't blame anyone but yourself. It's like your own business.

You need to build a solid foundation like Kyle explains in the training lessons. This makes you accountable to follow all lessons and to ask lots of questIons if you are stuck. This is where the true inspiration comes from, all the members are willing to help you build your business. Giving you advise and suggestions on what works and what doesn't work in a website. We in turn are a team at heart!

I still can't believe I have built a website, and it will continue to evolve, as I add more content and images. I love it!

Thanks again to all members, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Hi Kyle,
Been watching all the lessons, I'm at the boot camp lesson. Just feeling a little overwhelmed right now with all the info, lol. Looking at becoming a premium member, I see the benefits.

This industry was new to everyone at one point, myself included. Back when I started I had no knowledge of the Internet business and this. As you move forward, you will get the hang of this and things that you are overwhelmed with by now, will become second nature.

You can learn this and I can assure that everything you need is here at WA to create any level of success you want! I really do look forward to seeing you progress as you move forward James! Let me know if you need a hand if you ever feel even a bit stuck.
