I live in Africa (GMT +02) and shall be turning 80 this year. My home is 80 km from the sea which is a shame as I am an old sailor - I last worked for a Dutch company and they were generous enough to allow me to work until November 2016 when I turned 77. Lovely people the Dutch.

So awesome Michael, I know from experience that goals are what lead us to success. Work relentlessly in pursuit of these goals and they CAN and WILL happen.

In fact, wipe failure out of your mind right now. It simply won't happen. You have too much help, support and an entire community of help behind you to ever let that happen :)

If you need anything going forward, just let me known and I will be happy to give you a hand.

Awesome goals that are extremely achievable with some time and hard work! WA is going to give you the skills and tools you need to make these happen.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for following me and joining my network. I've returned the compliment and followed you back.

It is a pleasure to meet. I served four fantastic years in the British Royal Navy, way back in the early 70s. Happy memories!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. WA is a great community. There is so much to learn. I am here most days. I learn something new every day.

I've been a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate for two years, and I don't regret one day! I'm now a member of the 2020 Super Affiliate Challenge. I'll see it through to the end, and I'll be at the Las Vegas Super Affiliate Conference next year.

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 are succeeding with their online goals. Some have achieved this in a few months; for others, it has taken a couple of years. The common trait 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. Remember, little steps are better than no steps!

Best wishes,
Be Happy!

Thanks for the advice Paul. I was pleased to see that you have been a Jolly Jack in the Andrew no less. As a little chap I saw the Vanguard enter Durban harbour in 1947. You can imagine a farm boy seeing a warship of that size for the first time. The memory has remained crystal clear down through the years.
Yours aye

Hello Michael And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing is going to be a steep learning curve and there will always be something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 490+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Have a great day.
There are a few Dutch members here.
Maximus343 Premium
Thanks for the offer of assistance Robert, most kind of you. I shall definitely have a look through your blogs. Thanks.
Yours aye.
Robert-A Premium
No probs Michael and if/when you read my blogs make sure you choose the ones that will help you in conjunction with whatever training you are currently taking.
Have a great Tuesday.

Good Morning Michael,

I am happy to hear you think Dutch people are lovely. I always say everybody, independently of race, color, religion, background etc is nice till they prove otherwise.
This I always ask the new people I meet here. Do you know the world library? It is a great place for finding unusual information. I quite often use it when writing for my websites. So, in case you do not know here comes: www.wdl.org
I wish you a happy and exciting journey here at WA.

Regards, Taetske
Maximus343 Premium
Hi Taetske, thanks for that - no I have never ever heard of the library. Without question I shall pay it a deep and intense visit! Best regards, yours aye.

Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learned to always use the search tab at the top of the desktop, the answer is usually in someone's free training. Type in topic, rather than long question.
There is an answer to just about every question, all you need to do is ask.
Aside from the Certification and Bootcamp courses, there is heaps of extra training. Check out the training classrooms as well as the live events. There are current as well as past events in here. You can find both these tabs on the left-hand side
Start playing with tabs and boxes on your dashboard, there is so much hidden information, just keep looking for it.
Enjoy Wealthy Affiliate. There are lots of people here only too happy to help you along the way with encouragement and helpful tips. Wealthy Affiliate is about training, but that is just a small part of this wonderful community. If you participate as well as train, you will gain so much more.

Hi and congratulations on going premium with WA. It's a wise decision.

Your best bet from here is to follow all of the 5 course, 50 lesson Online Entrepreneur Certification training.

But the really important step is to apply what you're learning WHILE YOU'RE LEARNING IT.

I can't emphasize this enough.

Not only will it make the training stick, but in no time at all you'll have your first WA website up and running.

Google ranking and monetization will follow inevitably.

If you're stuck any time, just post a question.

One of us at WA will answer it and you'll be off again.

It's a journey and you've just taken your first and best step.

I wish you all the best.

Maximus343 Premium
Thanks Phil for the message. 1944 - don't tell me that is your birth date? You look much too young in your image!

Hi Brok or as I call you privately, and to others, the Estimable Brok. You guided me to WA when I was lounging about on the internet - looking for a writing job. I am not quite certain how it happened and then I discovered that I would be taught how to set up a website. Astonishingly, just what I wanted. My first website will be on Climate Change although I don't know how lucrative that will be but I'm not fussed. I do however have a broad feel what it will look like.

I plan to upgrade to Premium - as you Americans say (+ half the rest of the English-speaking world), it's a no-brainer! However at my age and at this time of the month, cash is short so I've emailed a son for a loan of $19. Hopefully he will see my email and respond swiftly. Here the time is nearly 2100 hours so he could be out and about.

Thanks for all the other tips too. Once I get the hang of creating websites, I shall get stuck into more commercial sites than Climate Change.

Yours aye
BrokFTJFH Premium
Hey Cap just so you know, for me to get a notification your response needs to be on my profile, a reply to me, or anywhere in the training. Luckily was on your profile and saw this message!

Awesome to hear that you're enjoying yourself so far and that WA is exactly what you were looking for!

I completely understand, hopefully he gets back to you! If not we will all be here to help if you do have to wait till the beginning of the month to go premium, no worries.

If you need anything from me don't be afraid to reach out.

Michael, you've been a member of Wealthy Affiliate now for three days! You took my action steps of completing your profile and jumping right into the training.

Following steps and completing tasks is very important when it comes to maximizing success here at WA. As I promised here's your bonus for completing your profile: http://fulltimejobfromhome.com/top-10-tips-for-beginning-wealthy-affiliate-members

I've been a WA member since 2013 and in that time frame, I've referred thousands of members. The 10 Tips I've compiled have come from some of the biggest success stories and failures that I've seen over the years. If you follow the 10 tips you'll be well on your way to maximizing your success here at WA!


1) Read Your Bonus of My Top 10 Tips for New WA Members To Maximize Your Success: http://fulltimejobfromhome.com/top-10-tips-for-beginning-wealthy-affiliate-members

2) See what the Wealthy Affiliate Premium Membership Has to Offer. You have access to over a 59% discount for the next 4 days!: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/order/signup/a_aid/d6149715

3) MY BONUS: If you decide that the premium membership is right for you and upgrade in the next four days. You'll get a few bonuses from me.

First, you get 1 on 1 support via Private Message from me. I've been making a full-time income with websites now for several years. With the help of the WA training, I made over $83,000 online last year. I happen to know a thing or two about creating websites and making money. When you go premium you have 24/7 support from me. Not sure what type of content you need to create? Not sure how to make your website do what you want? Not sure what you need to do to make money? Just send me a private message. I'm here to help!

Second, along with having 1 on 1 support from me, you'll get a free bonus. I've found that the biggest mistake new premium members make is finding the correct content ideas and the correct keywords to target. Content brings in traffic and traffic is what brings in MONEY. If you're not creating the correct content you won't earn any money! :( Unfortunately, I made this mistake and it set me back months when I first joined. I don't want you making that mistake, so if you take advantage of the $19 offer I'll send you a list of 5 high converting topic ideas plus low competition keywords to target.

I really really wish I had someone to give me this information when I first started as a premium member so I know that this bonus will get you started out on the right foot, plus show you what you need to be doing beyond your first 5 posts!

3) I really am here to help, please respond to this message with any questions or concerns you have. At this point, I'd love to hear about what you'd like your niche to be. If you don't know your niche yet, please respond to this message with hobbies and passions you have and I'd be happy to brainstorm together!

Talk soon :)
