About LeighGilburn
Joined October 2017
I have been a Family Practice and Emergency Medicine physician for 24 yrs and have been looking for several years for something that would allow income streams that provide travel with my family and more free time to spend with my children and family than medicine does. I am tired of being handcuffed to regulations that prevent me from doing what I think is best for my patients. I have been searching for something that helps me realize my dreams, and leads me to people that help inspire me in finding new ways to better the future for my children and for the world in which I have aspirations of helping transform. The part of the world known to hold neglected and forgotten animals, children in orphanages across the world living life every day without basic supplies education and love as well as women who are pregnant needing a safe delivery are all in my focus. These are my dreams. I am hoping Wealthy Affiliate will help me get closer to these dreams. We are now traveling all over the world on a fraction of what I was making back at home working as a full time ER physician. I never even dreamed it would be possible but it is. I would encourage anyone with kids and certainly anyone who is alone or with another adult to travel, junk the day job and figure out income streams on line to cover expenses and experience what it's like to pay off everything sell almost everything you own and be free to see the world, or settle somewhere long enough to get a second passport and travel out from there. It's nice I'll have to say to not be paying for a mortgage and a place to stay as we travel and me deciding when I work and when I don't. Blessings to everyone!

Wow Leigh, what a great profile and what a great story, very inspiring. I agree with you 100%, as a lawyer I am finding the same in my profession, and I am seeking a way to get rid of the metaphorical handcuffs too. I wish you all the best and safe travels

I totally understand. Two of my friends were practicing attorneys and both left that for more interesting and fun adventures, one is professional stained glass art now with a 2 yr waiting list for large pieces for churches and the like, and the other quitting practice of law for other professional services that involved helping people without the pressure of a court room. The best of luck and happiness to you as well.

Wow, that is so impressive, and with 5 kids too, you are an inspiration, really well done. North Wales is beautiful, I used to go to Bangor and Anglesey a lot (I did a student placement there many moons ago). Have a great Xmas! Best wishes

Going well no money makingbyet but feeling about things in general. Wish there was a way to integrate a sales funnel into websites! Buying some Facebook ads promotions but nothing happening yet except for more people are seeing my page a few clicks -need more time - just feel like a sales funnel approach would make so much more sense to monetize things quicker

Hello Leigh ... thank you for the follow. Clearly you value family time more than career and material accumulation. I assume you are not an internet marketing newbie. WA training and services should help you grow your internet business.

I wish you the best on your WA journey ... and your world wide journey.

Leigh, I am just checking out your site and have a few suggestions. The main one being more images! Kites are so bright get some more photos illustrating your post.

Near the beginning you have a sentence broken into two lines ie
‘People have ‘
passed down stories of a Chinese farmer…’

And it would look better if you could tighten up the list of kite festivals.

I found it a most enjoyable article to read.

Why don't you put your website link here on your profile page.

You do this by going to the right of your profile page, down to the bottom where it says 'Follow me on' and click on it. Put your website URL and any social media URLs you have (and want to add). This way people like me can hop in, visit and leave a comment. This makes it easier for us to follow you as this will be a direct link. And extra traffic is always welcome.

Looking much better. It looks like you show full posts. You might look at excerpts as they look tidier and more like a list of posts. You can connect directly to each full post through them. Take a look at Labman's training. I also did a training on static landing pages and blog rolls. It might not be the way you want yours but you can alter it to suit. I called my blog roll page (an empty one only to hook the posts to) Chin Wags and Post. I also suggest making your images smaller and putting them to the right of paragraphs. Just try it out to see if you like it. Jay's recommendation is mostly align right with a few aligned centre. Note this is due to English readers reading from left to right. Have a quick look at this post to see what I mean. https://fantasy-sci-fi-vision.com/rosie-is-my-relative-a-tale-of-an-unusual-elephant

Hello Leigh,

I am happy that you want to help those less fortunate. When I am in Cebu in the Philippines I often go and feed the street people, many of which have leprosy. Manila is the same but much bigger.

I wish you well in your new found freedom and it's great listening to your story.

Thank you for following me and it is a pleasure to meet you.

Best wishes,

Hello Leigh and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined last month and had a look round you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 380 blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy your day.

Hi Leigh, it's wonderful to meet you and thank you for following me. I love your bio and experiences.

You're right about creating the freedom to do things. I wish I had adopted the mentality many (many) years ago.

I have come to realize that the more "stuff" we have, the more of a noose around the neck it becomes. It's only stuff and we hang on to it for whatever reasons we come up with. There's more where that came from. There's not more time though. Use it wisely.

Take care and wishing you many happy travels and much success.

Hello Leigh,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun at 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 to the Walkthrough called "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 just wrote my 102nd training for WA. I have categorized 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

Welcome to WA - lots to learn here- stay focused - go through the Certification Courses first - you will get confused or frustrated from time to time - ask lots of questions - people are here to help you. 

HERE ARE 3 WA'ers Training Posts - they helped me - one is vocabulary you use here - one is a detailed use of your dashboard to find anything you will need - one is a plug-in to add to WordPress - that will help you build your sties. Hope they help - they did me This one I wrote - deals with how to "close" for the result you want. Stay with it - you don't need a wish of good luck - you need a plea to study the material and stay at it no matter what - it will change your life and hopefully the people you touch with your message.

Hi Leigh. Thank you for following. Now I also follow you. I live in South Africa, a beautiful and sunny country. I teach people to buy and sell shares on the stock market, I analyse companies and I manage share portfolios. I have had quite a checkered career. I sold life insurance, I owned two clothing manufacturing factories with 120 people employed in each, I was an estate agent, I was involved in Horse Racing, I sold Industrial Fire Pumps, I was a Diamond Dealer and travelled all over Africa buying stones. Now I have recently joined WA. It is my intention to make a success of this internet marketing and travel the world. I welcome any help and suggestions that you have to pass on to me. I'm sure your Pearls of wisdom will be of tremendous help. Leigh, this is a tremendous country I live in. The weather is fantastic, it's like waking up in paradise every day. The scenery is magnificent. It is also the hottest crime spot in the world. 18 000 murders a year. 28 car highjacks a day that often include murder. Hundreds of thousands orphans, mainly from the highest aids infection rate in the world. Thousands of children only households. Rape of women, men girls and boys is common, one every 30 minutes. Thousands of neglected dogs and cats. Millions of people living in shacks in squatter camps. Massive unemployment, 45%. A destroyed economy. But, we still laugh, we joke and we carry on. The more people I can encourage to become internet marketing affiliates the better. We will win. We will come out on top, and maybe one day you'll visit us.

Hi Leigh, yes it is sad. However, we also see it as a huge challenge, and we are working at getting it sorted out. One of our first priorities is reducing the unemployment rate. When people are gainfully employed they don't have time or reason for crime. So, with WA my aim is to introduce many of my country men and women to becoming self employed.

Hi, Leigh. Thanks for following me. I'm following you right back. I have a Masters in Adult Education, and I can tell you that the course material here at WA is top notch. You will quickly rise in the ranks by participating in the community, especially by reaching out and welcoming new members. This is only my fifth week at WA, and I am learning so much through not only the lessons, but by reading people's training posts. There are people in the community that share their discoveries freely to help the rest of us. And if you get stuck, you can ask a question in the Live Chat and it will get answered. This community is superb in that they honestly care about our individual success.

Wishing you much success!

Debra.

The community here at WA has been very helpful to me when something has gone wrong with my site etc. I'm still trying to figure out why people's comments on my site are not showing up for me to approve etc. I'm asking support for help too. still working on that one.

I love your website. You have a lovely family. I tried to leave a comment but it asked me to log in first. I tried logging in, but it gave me a WA log into your website, which I don't have the password to, nor would you want me to have it.

If you click on the SiteRubix button, you can request comments from the community. It's a give and take sort of thing. First you have to give comments to 2 websites, and you can then request one for your website. It also helps your rank by contributing to the health of others websites.

I wanted to share with you that my 30-year old delivered her own baby. It wasn't planned like that, but the midwife had given her a birthing kit just in case. The midwife came 5 minutes after the birth, which my daughter had to then go down the steps to let her in and then go back up the stairs to be attended to. But she was in such good shape. The baby will be two in December. She is so much a part of my heart.

Hi! LeighGilburn,

Thank you for networking with me, I will proactively do what we should do together to succeed in E-marketing adventure. Hence, be critical on what you perceive from reading my profile and contents inside by 42-day baby, www.ebettercare.com; that is really what I need, not just sweet words for political correctness; I appreciate that.

Oh!, I do feel the same way about medical practice, and I just retired in 8/2017. So, we have a lot in common which we can share in depth so to forge a real fast success in E-marketing; I have enjoyed it so far over my past 42 days.

In reality, I am still digitally blind although I have gained a significant knowledge through truly unparalleled training and support within WA community – the right place for us to worm up and to move into the real world of E-marketing.

Welcome to meet in WA and thank you for mutual supporting.

Best to health and success,


James

I really like your web site and your obvious dedication to helping others live a better life. I am going to look into your books as well. I watched one of your videos on how to be happy and I agree that we really have to create an honest relationship with our feelings and let ourselves express our feelings such as when we need to cry etc. I think there is way too much expression of anger instead of thinking of a better way to say things. We all have done this. My only suggestion for your web site is change author of your posts to you instead of admin. Thank you for your subject matter and I will continue to follow you.

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! :)

Hey Leigh! Just wanted to follow up and see how you're doing so far. Hope you've been enjoying the training offered here and the community as well.

You must be wondering if you can really make money after going through the courses here in WA. Truthfully, it can be done because I have experimented it and I know it works.

Just wanted to let you know that if you have upgraded to the premium membership, it covers the full spectrum of training, there will not be any further products that you "need" to purchase within the members area. This is unlike any programs out there.

Personally, I feel that the WA course is the best stepping stone for any one who wants to start an online business. You will be a seasoned affiliate marketer after going through the entire WA course.

See what the premium membership offers:

Let me know if you have any questions or need a hand with anything! I will be more than happy to help you out to build a successful future for you.

Cheers!
