Hi Kmotte,

I came discovered WA a couple of days ago. I upgraded to premium yesterday. Over the last few month's I've spent some time reading about online marketing before I discovered WA. I'm really excited about what I can accomplish here. So, many members are willing to lend a helping hand to a newbie. Looking forward to working with you and others to achieve financial freedom.

Hi thank you for touching base with me, I too have some computer experience starting out with an appco two disk drive and moved up along the way through the dos then windows environments. I used to refurbish computers then resold them at a discounted price to families who had children of school age, that would benefit from having one. One of the best projects I ever got myself involved with. I also went to college and did the first year of Computer information Systems, due to unforeseen events I was not able to complete. I was married for 11 years, God bless her soul, she passed on 2015. Your very lucky to have a lengthy and loving relationship. I hope our paths cross in the coming months.

Keith, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend.

My partner and my neighbour (Ron) also did avionics. Ron is a Marine from the US, moved to Australia and has just spent 14 years in the RAAF. He loved it and would still be there but the air force medical teams buggered up his health.

Having lived in the remote Australian bush for a number of years I certainly got my experience with 4 X 4 off road antics. Fortunately I never got lost. And when out riding after cattle the horses always new their way home!

Work hard, have some fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Thanks for the following me and the kind words. I have returned the favor and are following you now. Like you I'm blessed and have the support of my family in all things.

I just need to overcome my own self limiting beliefs that I get from time to time, especially about my writing skills.I know the only way to improve a skill is to practice the skill, so that is one of my goals here.

I see from your profile that you have been a member for about a year. How are things going for you in your WA career?

There is a famous quote from Mark Twain:

"If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first."

And that just means - do your hardest task first or at least as soon as you can in the morning. If you do this then the rest of your day is easy from there!

ANYWAY…

Hello, thanks for the follow and welcome to WA. You are definitely in the right place!

People have plenty to share and there is plenty to learn also so take your time and enjoy the experience.

I may not be in the top 200 list anymore (because I don’t socialize here much) but I do have many interesting posts on my site and some you might really like, many people do. I have over 3,000 positive comments, so take a look and get some ideas as to what you can do with your site.

Let me know if I can help you in any way

Cheers Peter :)

It's not only fantastic for complete newbies, it's a wonderful place for anyone in the business of generating an income online.

Keith, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Keith.

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

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made 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 have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate, Keith! I think you’ll find that this is a great place to be a part of! The training is second to none – tons of tutorials, training videos and Entrepreneur Certification courses. The first 10-lesson course is free to Starter Members but it tells you everything you need to know to get your website up and running. You’ve probably been pointed in that direction but here’s the link to the first lesson I highly recommend that you jump into the lesson and course!

If I can do anything to help, please don't hesitate to let me know. I'm here to help!

Also, I want to take a moment to wish you the very best!
