Howzit / Kunjan Shamwari

("hello my friend" Zimbabwe-style, where I was born and raised. There are 16 official languages in Zim, so I've kept this to the minimum :-))

Here I am on this amazing international platform, Wealthy Affiliate, learning incredible things and developing an online business as an affiliate marketer. The goal? To earn a healthy income and make a difference in the lives of others.

Embarking on a new and exciting phase and stage in life where new-found freedom will enable me to travel and experience the world, I am seeking geographic as well as financial freedom!

A fellow WA member wished me like this: "Good luck zip lining your way to affiliate marketing success as a member of our WA family!" I am holding on to these words for my messaging, how cool!

If you are not already a member, what are you waiting for? Join WA today, you can start for FREE and go Premium when you are ready!

See you on the inside!

PS "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass ... it's about learning to dance in the rain" So whatever it is you are wanting to do with your life, don't hesitate, no matter your circumstances, you too can be learning how to dance in the rain!

Hi Louise.. thanks for the follow.

How exciting that you will be traveling the world. I love to travel because it allows you to experience life in different ways and helps you to appreciate the smaller things.

Wishing you all the best on your travel endeavors and here on WA!

Hi Crystal
Thank you for the visit - great to see you here!
Travel definitely is in my plans, working hard to get my online business off the ground, once that is done - I am up, up and away :-)
Thank you for your wishes. I look forward to reading your success stories.

Hey Louise,

I love your bio! I would love to travel to Zimbabwe one day. Geographic freedom is definitely one of the main reasons that affiliate marketing appealed to me initially.

I always say jokingly (but honestly, I’m really not joking - I really mean it...lol) when someone asks me what I want out of life, I always say my ultimate goal in life is to be an expat!

Anyways, I look forward to getting to know you better as I continue on my journey here at WA! I know in my heart that I’ve found everything I need to create a successful online business and am so grateful that I’m finally where I need to be!

Cheers,
Allison

P.S. I actually stopped by to say thank you for following me and to let you know that I followed you back! It’s great to have you in my network and I look forward to getting to know you better !

Taku greeting!
Louise, it is great that you are thinking about your fellow countrymen. I moved and have a lot of books of all types that I would like to donate. They range from art and history books to "Do it yourself" trade books, i.e. carpentry, masonary, electrical, etc and would love to donate them to your country if I could find the organization to ship ship them gratis from the U.S. to your location. Any ideas on this?

Hi Randell
That is AWESOME - thank you, thank you :-)

Glad to do it. I know everybody is using computers these days but I thinks books still have a place in education and am happy to help out as much as I can. Let me know what you hear.

I think Zim has no choice but to make use of books, their lack of electrical power being what it is.
I am with you though, there will always be a place for books - there is nothing like the smell of a book and the texture of the pages. Not only that, you can read a book before going to sleep and not break your "no screen time before sleep" rule :-) Haha!
So far no response to my question on Facebook, will keep checking and revert to you.

Hi Louise,
I noticed that you’re following me. Thanks so much for that. I hope and pray for your success here at WA. I’m wondering if we could do each other a favor? Could we possibly exchange a comment on a recent post, on each other’s website? I know time is precious, so I certainly understand if the timing is not the best for you. Anyway, if you’re able, here’s the post I need a comment on: https://howtoloveelementary.com/why-do-i-feel-like-a-child/
Please send me a link to your most recent post and I’ll add a comment for you. A warm thanks to you in advance.

Thanks for the follow, as well as the motivation in your profile. The dancing in the rain actually reminded me of a song i heard the other day. The guy was talking about how people should learn to dance in the rain rather then sit and complain. seems like this has been popping up more and more in my life recently. For now I'll take it as a sign that I have finally found where I belong. With amazing people just like yourself. Praying for you and your success!!!

Hi LouiseBT, Thank you for the follow. I am a NEWBIE and have exactly 13 hours and 55 minutes to make my decision. I have sprawled money all over the place before finding WA. I have two Shopify stores that dropship through Spocket. I paid $385/year for both stores only to find out that their suggested Retail price is ridiculous and what I will paying them for the product is pretty much what the Retail should be. They tell me I am free to lower my prices! Ha! I think I will have a huge sale, try to earn my money back and cancel. I seem to learn everything the hard way. The fact is, the more you research on-line, the further down the Rabbit Hole you go. It becomes daunting at times. By the time I reached WA I am a full blown skeptic. That's not to say that I don't like what I am learning and reading here. I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop so to speak. Does that make sense? I guess I am paranoid of making yet another bad decision. Okay, so now I have exactly 13 hours and 51 minutes left to make a decision. No pressure though.
Reply
LouiseBT Premium
Hi Edie
Wow! I am flattered that you have chatted to me about your 13 hours and 51-minute deadline pressure.
Above is a link to some success stories - you will need to make the decision after as much research as possible.
I have been with WA for 7 months and have not made any money ... YET! I do believe that this is the way I am going to achieve my goals though. I have grown exponentially and absolutely love the training and community here.
I really hope you decide to stay, I do not think you will be sorry, it is important though that you have realistic expectations - this is not a get rich quick plan, but it is a way to grow a sustainable business.
Wishing you every success!
Blessings
Louise

PS I just heard someone say this "do something today that your future self will thank you for" :-)

Please note that I am introverted and not very social (for example, I do not have any social media accounts such as Facebook or Twitter). I know that 'to 'follow' someone is part of the community and learning aspect of WA, but it is also a bit creepy, Consequently, please don't take offence if I do not reciprocate any 'followers'.

Does your friend have relapsing MS? At her age I would check about a steroid treatment from a doctor. If so, she will probably get most of that back.

Thanks for your encouragement Louise, I really appreciate it. In answer to your question, we were in Johannesburg last November for our nephew’s wedding, Things have really changed there. Sandton is unrecognizable, it’s so built up. We found everything very expensive there, except restaurants which were reasonably priced. Unfortunately I broke my leg in Sandton, I was looking at pics on my cellphone and I fell down about 3 steps, I managed to hobble my way through until I got back here and I had to have an operation to put 3 pins in to stabilize it. I’m fine now, Good to have someone from our hometown to work with. Thanks again for the encouragement. I’m just going to take one step at a time. One can eat a whole elephant, one bite at a time, but if you look at the whole elephant, it it seems like an impossible task. So here’s to my first bite.

Me, have to always remember to have a positive attitude. This due to life throwing some great curve balls to try and make you loose your footing & put u off track. Can't let that happen, otherwise ticking off ur goals along what u set out to do with this GREAT opportunity will be missed.
Sorry if don't get back & respond to all the comments coming thru, however trying my best to keep up! Today unfortunately missed the opportunity to keep going in my initial training however have set time aside for tomorrow (small goal).
Hope all the newbies like me powering thru there training to get up & running in picking ur Niche, setting up ur web address & site & moving forward.
When I'm up & running will be great to eventually meet up with different members & SA would be on my list!

It's so quick and easy just to say hi and welcome, but is so much better is it to know a bit about who you are connecting with. You have had an interesting life to date, I am sure your experiences have prepared you well with some great stories and lessons to share with the world - these can be used in your messaging, after all there is not another you around. Something I keep in mind when I feel like I have nothing to share.
Wishing you every success with Wealthy Affiliate, it sure is a great community where help is just a message away - thankfully.
Blessings

Well congrats LouiseBT, you're making a splash already now that's cool. I'm Dr. Jackson, and I feel honored that you would partner with me. You are obviously very talented and I look to learn something from you as we grow within the WA, family. I look forward to sharing some of the things that I've learned since I've become a "Premium member". What keeps me excited is there is so much to learn and they give you ever tool they have to build a Hugh and profitable business. After retiring from my practice, I tried to work with a couple of well known MLM opportunities I came close to loosing a lot of money but moma didn't raise no fool and I got out of it. I became a speaker for three of the mlm's and I made some money. I use to work with the (Toast Masters) and help them build a couple of charters. Amway, Shackley, Ameriplan, etc. I did all the circle's on the board and a couple of their national conventions. They talked about how big my business was and how fast I was growing in their company. They stacked my business and I was up near the top in actuality I was a paid speaker. Chat really soon. Dr. J welcome

Thank you so much. I'm writing my Auto-Bio, the title is Where Do We Grow from Here. It's about my life growing up in New York city, having a father who was part of the Mafia (Gambino crime family) for thirty years. I'm half finished and starting to figure out how to put down the information to make it a Best Seller. I have an agent in Manhattan. Just thinking about the horror that I experienced in person. I saw John Gotti, on the street before he became the Don. He was making his bones (he was a soldier or go for) I just felt that I could tell you that. My mother had eight boys and one girl. She was in the middle or the boys. Know she wasn't spoiled but she was very tough. Chow Dr. J

Hello Louis;
I believe internet and affiliate marketing is the way to go for most people who want to start a business because it is so cost effective. For a very low price there is unlimited financial and social potential. It is nice meeting you. I wish you all the best.

Thanks for the follow, Louise and I am following you back. Please take your time familiarizing yourself with the WA website. Recommend to use the Affiliate Bootcamp training to start off, if you have no specific niche to start any online business at the moment. Otherwise, use the Entrepreneur Certification course if you have a specific niche you have in mind to create an online business around. If not, use the Affiliate Bootcamp training if you want to promote Wealthy Affiliate plus any other niche out there.
Cheers,

Pio

Hi Julie
Thank you for your question - I am still working towards my freedom within WA. I have some experience in the affiliate marketing industry and have every confidence that the freedom I am seeking will be achieved.
From the research I did prior to joining WA, I can tell you that the WA offering is excellent - value for money, great training, and support. I encourage you to do the training, put in the time and you will reap the rewards of your efforts. The experience and advice offered on this platform is gold, take advantage of it and ask the questions in live chat or through the help center.
I also encourage you also to read my blog post about mindset on my website, here is the link: https://latebloomer.siterubix.com/mindset-mastery/

Oh great! affiliate bootcamp is great training too. As long as you are going through training, that’s important. Don’t jump trainings. Stick with one and finish it. Then go through other trainings. MMO niche is competitive so just prepared with a long term and consistent content plan. Good luck!

Hello Louise, Welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate platform. I am sure you will do well. The education and training here is second to none and the live chat is a big help as there are people on there from all over the world so there is always someone on hand to hopefully answer your questions. I would also like to let you know that there is a live webinar every Friday night (canadian time) which I think you will enjoy. It is run by our official trainer Jay Neill (rank3) and has Q & A's both during the event and after and it lasts for about an hour.
If there is anything I can do to help please feel free to contact me and I will do my best to assist you where I can

Hi, Louise.

Thanks for joining my network; I've returned the compliment.

Welcome to WA. Wealthy Affiliate is a great community. In addition to the online discussions and articles that member's post, the official training is fantastic. There is so much to learn. I am here most days. I learn something new every day.

Keep moving ahead. However your day may be, take a little step forward. Some days you'll make significant strikes, other days you will not, but do something every day, however small in building your business.

You will read many stories of WA members succeeding with their online goals. Some have achieved this in a few months, for others, it has taken a couple of years. The common theme for those that have reached their goals is taking action. Everyone who has succeeded has taken small steps every day. Do something, however tiny, every day, and you will reach your goal.

Pace yourself and enjoy your journey.

Best wishes,
Paul.
Be Happy!

Welcome to WA and thanks for following me. I am now following you as well. A thought for you to make extra income as you travel, think about becoming a travel writer. It's a way for extra income and sometimes perks of getting free trips and accommodations and meals.
Enjoy

Hi Louise,

Sustainable financial freedom to allow for extensive worldly traveling is possible with hard work and consistency. I’d like to be one of the first member’s here at WA to congratulate you, on making what I think to be a very smart decision toward securing your finances in the near future, and that was upgrading to premium.

You will find that there is plenty of training being offered on this platform not just through the two main training courses that you have most likely already started one of them, if not just click on the green "Training" tab on the left over there to get started.

Additional over on the left is recorded copies of Jay’s webinars click on "Live Events" tab to view those, also, Friday evening 8 pm US Pacific Standard Time is when the live events happen. You won't want to miss those and you’ll just use the same tab to join those events with Jay and everyone else).

Straight above in the black WA tool bar (just right of the WA icon) is a search box that has a cornucopia of information anything A-Z about online entrepreneurship, website design, and other aspect relevant to your new online business. You can find all that information and so much more hidden in that gem.

Then if you cannot find your answer in any of the platform’s resources you can always asking the member’s 24/7 “live Chat” tab also located on the left over there. You should be able to find someone in there that can answer your question or guide you in the right direction to get it solved.

WA is a “NO SPAM ZONE”, they consider posting your Domain name/URL/logo/company name without being asked to do so, as spam here. Here is a link the Kyle’s posted copy of the WA rules: There are a couple of spots that you are allowed to openly post your URL (but no logo’s or company names are to be posted anywhere on this site) on the lower far right of your profile page there is a spot, and then 2 platforms which can be found by clicking the websites tab on the WA home page and they are site feedback, and site comment.

What most members do is put website’s link in the lower right hand corner of their profile page then when you ask someone to look at your site they will know right where to go to find the link as long as you are both following each other.

I hope your stay here is long and very lucrative. If you ever need any additional help please don’t hesitate to ask anyone for help, the community is full of members willing to help n any way possible - including me :-D

Once again Welcome to WA!

Affiliate marketing is our priority: where content is KING and consistency is the KEY to your SUCCESS

Best of luck to you,

Calvin

Welcome Louise to one of the greatest online platforms available!

I feel so lucky to have found such a great place to learn, be creative, and build my business.

The best thing about WA and the community is that you have all the resources that you need. It is just about applying everything you learn, being patient, and achieving your short term goals.

I encourage you to start the training right away. As you go through the training you can watch the videos, read the video summaries and be sure to apply every single step in the video without skipping steps.

It is amazing how much you learn and how quickly you can become a great resource for others.

If you ever have any questions or need assistance don't hesitate to reach out.
