About Loni13
Joined January 2018
Concieved while my parents were on a round-the-world trip obviously started me off with a desire to move around and indeed I have.

A creative and expressive individual, I started my profession in graphic design and advertising consultancy, but soon realised that for travel and for international communication, practical communicability is a more key element for many people and cultures in this world of ours. So, after a a degree in English language and culture I did a CELTA and attained my masters in education to improve how I could teach people and improve their English language and communication skills.

I taught business English mostly by distance for some years while I did the major part of my itchy feet travelling as well as time teaching in some universities in different continents and realise the importance of comprehension and clear speech to benefit communication clarity.

I want to help people improve their capacity to communicate and speaking with clear pronunciation is an extremely advantageous way to start.

Cultural comprehension is another interest related to language in so many ways and one which more strongly influences progressive levels in language learning. It is also a topic I desire to continue my own theorietical and developmental analysis of.

In physical terms for me... I love my free time with my favourite place at the moment being immersed in the ocean bay here in the tropical pacific island home I currently find myself and swimming with the local wildlife.

Great to meet and connect with you. I love English too. I have taught English in China and traveled a bit too. I wish you all the best of success!
Reply
Loni13 Premium
Teaching in China!! OOOhhhhh... how did that go? I taught in Taiwan which was interesting - I like islands ;)

Yes, travel holds the key to gaining real connection to cultural difference (and similarity).... I think there are always some new insights to be encountered...
Reply
RobertDoyle Premium
Yes, how true it is that we learn from cultural differences--more about ourselves than anything. Teaching in China was an incredible opportunity, a real eye-opener in some respects. There were definitely challenges, but such a rewarding experience!

Hello Loni13

Congratulations on going Premium here at WA.

I have found the weekly webinar very useful to watch and now that you’re a premium member you can too.

One tip though… be sure the topic being covered is what you need right now otherwise it won’t be the best use of your time.

If you can’t or don’t want to attend it live, there’s always the recordings. (See “Live Video Classes” under Training on the left hand menu.

Wishing you every success with your business goals for 2018.

Well, ive actually managed to cruise through a few lesson this evening without much problem...
i suppose the biggest question was regarding how specific the niche title should be as when starting out the idea of limiting felt both good and bad.

I decided to leave English out of the title, which is pretty major, but include it in smaller sub texts etc - which i believe i should be able to change later if so desired (eg to include other languages).

So, im now down to about 11 hours till premium special cut off... sounds so ominous! Didnt realise that these communication features would be cut off so quickly till you wrote and told me! What else am i going to lose out on?
Reply
GeoffGS Premium
Well, you lose access to most everything. If you decide not to go Premium, you get to keep 2 free sites.

There should be a deal for the 1st month. I encourage you to consider trying the 1st month at least.

What is the link to your website? Can we take a look?
Reply
Loni13 Premium
"Language learning tools"
Im still in FIRST MODULE of course... so not much advance in appearances... but now about to start adding content...

Just over an hour to go...
Reply
GeoffGS Premium
Oh awesome. I see you signed up for the 1st month. Welcome to Premium Membership. There really is no other way. Now you can start working on a real website. One of your own. The WA Siterubix sites are good, but they belong to WA. When you make your own site, it is all yours. You can move it to any hosting you like. You can take it with you should you ever decide to cancel your membership. :)
Reply
GeoffGS Premium
Don't worry. You don't lose any of the work you have done. The siterubix transfers over to your site. You have to splurge one more time to the tune of $14 bucks I think it is. That buys your domain and is good for 1 year.

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! :)

Loni13 Premium
Hey kyle,
You are right about the niche hurdle!
Names and titles are the first presentation... the first impression... and i debated mine for a bit...
one aspect was not knowing how the course progresses... and its good to think that maybe i can go back and change it if necessary... but... if unnecessary... better.
im working my way through. Your explanations are pretty clear so it makes it easy... biggest hassle is probably my phone and internet limitations... but... its coming along.
thank you for your messages of encouragement,

Leonie

A niche can honestly be anything, what are you passionate about? What are you interested in?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Absolutely everything you need is here at Wealthy Affiliate to create and grow your business to any level online. I really do look forward to working with you and as you move forward you are really going to see your business come together.

If you ever need a hand with anything, please do let me know Leonie. ;)

Just wanted to shoot you a quick message and see how things were going thus far Leonie? I am here to help if you ever need a hand with anything, just holler!

PS. Also, quick reminder. Today is the last day to get your first month discount/bonuses. No rush, no worries. Just a simple reminder here. :)

I dont have access to much internet at the moment... so i can guarantee i wont be able to complete the training withn the 7 days... what a shame! It took a couple days for my picture to be accepted... as it blocked on loaded 100%.

The hurdles of living on a distant tropical island i guess!!

Thanks for your support and intentions.

Hey Leonie, just wanted to pop back and see how you are doing? I noticed that you haven't quite set-up your account yet, just wanted to let you know there is a video on how to do this if there is any confusion. Setting up your account will lead to much better help here within the community as people feel like they can connect with you better (with an image and a description)

Just wanted to make sure that all was good and if you do need a hand with anything, just let me know! :)

Hello Leonie. Geoff here. I'm excited to welcome you to Wealthy Affiliate. Every new member brings me back to the day I signed up. To the hopes and fears I experienced at that time. I'm here to reassure you that you've come to an honest place, and much, much more.

To get you on track, I suggest going over to the Online Entrepreneur Certification getting started course (Level 1). This is a step by step, action oriented course that will provide the framework for a successful website. Here's the link to get started, or access it through the green "Get Started Here" icon on your main menu. CLAIMING YOUR BONUS - FIRST 7 DAY OFFER!

I recommend putting as much time as you can spare into your site during the first 7 days. Why? Because full access to all that Wealthy Affiliate has to offer is free through the duration of this period. However, I understand how fast a week can go by so here's my bonus offer.

1) Sign up any time in the first 7 days and get your first month as a Premium Member at a 59% discount. That's only $19 for a full month. Not one bit of work you do in the first 7 days will be lost. It all carries over to Premium Membership.

2) Besides the obvious benefits (that you'll soon discover) to Premium Membership, you'll also have full private access directly to me (and all my mentors here) immediately upon joining. Did I mention, I love to help. It keeps me level. Membership is month to month. No longer contract is ever required.

Don't forget to take action within the first 7 days to take full advantage of these savings.

Once again, I'm excited about your decision to check things out. I hope I get the chance to be a part of your story. I'm available anytime during those first 7 days to help in any way I can. Simply reply to this message. Sincerely, Geoff.
