Hi Darren, nice to hear from you. I, Helen from Tasmania, look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend. Sorry about the delay in responding but I am a bit slow at the moment. Trying to do too many things at once.

I checked out your site and left a comment.

If you have time I would love it if you visited my website and left a comment on a post, any one will do. The site address is fantasy-sci-fi-vision.com

Keep working hard, having 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.

Ciao
Helen

Thanks. I just read your return comment. Maybe I will do a progress album sometime. It is very slow as the person with whom I was supposed to build this house has been slow, stubborn and virtually useless. Finalisation should be sometime next decade!

Best of luck to you. I am a newbie here. Enjoying it so far. I started a site in 2006 and did everything on my own. It was torture. I hired people to help with design etc. I had some revenue an people contacting me about banners and affiliate programs. I just couldn't devote the time. I wish I had known about WA then!! Not sure what it was about your profile but it made me smile. You seem like a good guy. I look forward to seeing your progress.

Hello Darin ... thank you for the follow. You are applying yourself here at WA like your hair is on fire.

I wish every one I follow the best on your WA journey. I somehow feel that will not be necessary in your case ... but I wish the best just the same.

Darren, 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 Darren.

Hi Darren,
Thanks for connecting with me and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I truly love your idea of success...now, that to me describes true success and happiness, not just being wealthy in money or material things. You can have all the money in the world and not be happy if you're not doing something you enjoy at all.

Best wishes :) ~Sherry

Hi there Darren, greetings from sunny Arizona. Being new to WA as well, I have found it a great place to be. Having been a consumer on the internet and now trying to flip that and be a producer is quite the challenge , so far so, good on the steep learning curve. I really like the action plan on your bio , being a write tasks down to get it done kind of person ! Thank you for the support. All the best Carson 1

Carson 1,
Just writing it down and publicizing it pushes me to do it, because I'm a "man of my word" kind of guy. I'm going to do this every month, first, for me to stay on track, but also to show other new folks that this is possible but only through dedication and continued improvement. Thanks for your support, too!

Hey Darren thanks for the follow and I will follow you as well. First of all welcome to the community/family. I can see you are a man with a plan. Planning is everything in life. Yes, I also looked for negatives about Wealthy Affiliate before I committed to the premium level and like you did not find one thing. As you can see the training is like nothing that you have seen in this industry. The community is awesome. We have so many diverse people here to help and assist with helping you reach your dreams and goals here in WA. Best of luck in your business.

Good afternoon Darren,

Reading your profile I hope you have reached your first goals as it is now the end of May. I started half of Jan this year and did not set myself any fixed goals as I am very slow in understanding all the technical stuff related to a computer and the Internet.
Still, I do have 2 websites up and running and I try to write a post a week for each of them. In case you need a good source for writing do have a look at my post on the world library, you might find it helpful.
Thank you for the follow and good luck.

You will love it as much as I do. I can see you are a family man. That is good, this is a job that will keep you close to your family and still keep you in a position to acquire wealth.

Thank you for inviting me to follow, Darren! With your approach and energy, being aware, there is no limit to what you can achieve - inspiring others, too. I came here the same way you did, through reviews, and WA is now my core base, with no haste, for years to come, continuing prior work. There is no other such place like this community. You're well on your way already! :)

Thanks for the follow and I am now following you also. Use the free training to get the feel for WA and the basics of what it takes to build a site...going premium was an immediate jump in the right direction.

I also did that path, and then even went yearly for premium as it was a big savings.

When you have questions jump into chat any time of the day and you will find help immediately....good luck and most of all enjoy the ride.

If you struggle choosing a niche I would be happy to help.

I think you will agree the training here is excellent, if you struggle with the application feel free to ask.

Hi Darren,

Thanks for the follow.
We both have the same priorities for success - Father first.
I put my daughter first all the time, I actually spoil her too much.
If we don't have much money I will buy her favourite food, lamb cutlets, which are currently selling in Sydney, Australia for $42.99 a kilo. Absolute crazy price. A mouthful for $5.
She gets to eat these while I eat canned sardines on toast LOL!

Cheers Darren and best regards

Brad

Brad,

I love canned sardines and toast! LOL! I understand, totally, what you mean by spoiling our beloved children. I try not to make things too easy on mine, however, because I don't want them to be too sheltered. I always tell them I love them and give them plenty of hugs and kisses. However, I want them to be resilient. I wish there were a foolproof blueprint to parenting!

Good luck to you!

Darren

Thanks Darren,

I have looked after my daughter since she was born. She is 20 now and I am still Mr Mum. We have a very close bond.
As for canned sardines I like them too, especially fried up with onion and garlic.
I buy Canadian sardines only or North Atlantic.
I am involved with fish oils and I know how much rubbish is on the market. So many oxidized fish oils.

Good luck also Darren

Hello Darren and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined in April you will surely have realized that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck then can I suggest you browse some of the 300+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will return the favour.
Enjoy your day.

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

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also 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 right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi again Darren! Just checking in to see how you are getting along with the training. Don't worry about doing too much or too little - everyone works at their own pace.

Oh, and don't forget that there's another live webinar coming up this week for premium members! Jay's an awesome host, so it's worth attending at least once, just to see what they're all about.

What's up Darren, just wanted to see how you were doing and if you need any help. Let me know!

BTW in case you missed the message, you also get free keyword searches in Jaaxy ( http://www.jaaxy.com ) that can help you with finding topics to write about on your website.

If you need some help understanding Jaaxy just respond to this message and I can send a training video to you.

PS. I found a few more success stories I wanted you to see!

Hey there, I just wanted to check in and see if you had any questions about what you've seen at WA so far. A lot of people get information overload in the first couple days.

The one piece of advice that helped me when I got started was that there is a huge difference in success rates between those that interact with the community and those that don't. Part of learning all this new stuff is going to require that you ask questions when you don't understand.

So, my suggestion is this.

1) Put up a profile pic

2) Write a short introduction about yourself

3) Drop in on my profile to say hello

Doing these things will help you meet people in the community and see what WA is all about. You can start learning how to build a profitable business on the internet by clicking the green "Get Started Here" button on your left. I hope you enjoy your time in Wealthy Affiliate!
