About Lourens83
Joined February 2017
So I guess this is the part where I tell you a little bit about myself, my hobbies, my goals, what I want to achieve as a WA member. I would describe myself as a hardworking, disciplined, loyal type of guy that enjoys reading, diving, hunting, and travelling.

I have been working for over a decade now for a reputable mining company and have reached a point that I have realized that the work stress, hours spent working, meetings and travelling to and from work is not a life that I aspire to. Currently I lack inspiration and I zest for life and want more flexibility. I don’t want to work for a boss anymore, want to live life on my terms and have the freedom to travel. You only have one life and if you’re not doing what you love, then what is the point…. Think I have had enough of the rat race.

The idea of working from home only requiring a laptop and internet connection is very appealing to me and I believe that Wealthy Affiliate can realize that dream. I believe that with hard work, persistence and a positive mind-set, all things are possible. What I would like to achieve in the first 4 months is to work through my starter training, engage with the WA community members, upgrade to premium membership, work through premium membership training and start making money online. Hopefully by the end of December I will be in a position to quit my dreaded J. O. B. and focus full-time of my Internet Marketing business.

Cheers for now

Just wanted to shoot you a quick message and see how things were going thus far Lourens? 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. :)
Kyle Premium
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! :)
Lourens83 Premium
Hey Kyle, I am doing great, thank you for asking. Training here at WA thus far has been fun and looking forward to the rest of the training.
After a lot of thought about choosing a niche, I have decided on how to "beat type 2 diabetes". What's yours opinion on my choice of niche? Do you think this niche will convert well?

Kind regards
Kyle Premium
Yeah, that is most definitely the direction you could head with your niche. If this is something that you are passionate about, definitely go for it Lourens!
Carson Premium
