Thanks Roy - your words are much appreciated. I will check out the article you suggest. By the way, I am in Sydney, which is why there was a delay in my reply - the other side of the planet...

Hello Neil, it's good to connect with you. It sounds like you come from a very nice part of the world, I am from the UK as you probably know. I always thought it would be a nice idea to come to your country for a couple of months in our winter, it hasn't happened yet, but hopefully, it will one day.

Have a great week and all the best to you.

Roy

Hello Roy. Thanks for the nice welcome message. Yes, I know the UK. I lived there twice - once in 1962/63 and again in 1966/68. Probably a bit before your time, by the look of your profile mug-shot.

I was working for GEC the first time and lived in many different places, including Birmingham, Leicester, Middlesborough, Oxford and on the Ayrshire coast, just south of Glasgow (working on the construction of the Hunterston Nuclear Power Station). Very fond memories of it all.

You would enjoy Australia; friendly people and beautiful weather.

It sounds like you are well travelled Neil, I live in a very beautiful village not far from the Essex Suffolk border, more trees than people! Incidentally, I was around the second time you came to the UK!

I hope to have the opportunity one day to visit more of the world, especially Australia and New Zealand, it would be wonderful to visit in our winter!

All the best to you Neil.

Congratulations on going Premium Neil

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 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.

Thanks for your kind words, Mark. Yes, I will check out the webinars, as you suggest. I have a good feeling about this whole thing. It seems to have been put together with a lot of thought on how to make all the right information available when you need it.

Hi Neil,
It's Jerry here again. I'm here to congratulate you for having your account set up and starting to explore WA.

I hope you are having a great time for the past three days. Just follow closely with the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course ( ), and you will not go wrong.

You can always get help easily within the community. Live Chat is a good place to get immediate help :)

**Claim Your BONUS**

Neil, by now you should have a good taste of how helpful and awesome this community is.

If you would like to gain full access to everything WA community has to offer, then you shouldn't miss the Premium Membership 61% discount that is happening right now!

Upgrade to Premium now at only $19 for your first month (Usual Price: $49).

Being a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate allows you to enjoy a lot more benefits that include:
- Access to every training, resources and tools within WA
- NO MORE Upsells (unlike many other scammy programs)
- Private Access to the Owners of Wealthy Affiliate, Kyle & Carson.
- Double Affiliate Commission
- Full Community Access
- And many many more!

This BONUS will only last within your first 7 days. If you decide to upgrade after 7 days, it'll be $49.

For me personally, investing in WA Premium since mid 2016 has been one of the best decisions I've made in my life so far. I hope you can join us on this exciting and wonderful journey!

Let me share with you a quote: "The act of buying creates a commitment that causes us to actually take action."

I'm sure you're here right now because you want to make more money, you want a breakthrough in life. However, that won't happen unless you COMMIT yourself into something that works, in this case Wealthy Affiliate!

Think about it... Have you attended any FREE workshop, seminar or webinar before and you feel you did learn a lot of valuable information but in the end your life is still the same? Nothing has changed...

That's because information alone is not enough! You need either a mentor, a coach, or even a system to keep yourself accountable so that you will take real actions which could potentially change your life.

Nothing will happen if you just learn the information, feel motivated and DO NOTHING, right?

That's what Wealthy Affiliate Premium Membership is for. We are a truly 'pay-it-forward' community and we help one another.

I'm not telling you all these because I just want you to upgrade so that I can make money. This thing is not about me, it's about YOU!

I'm telling you from experience that your life will not change no matter how desperate you are UNLESS you COMMIT yourself into taking real actions!

So, I hope to see your success story very soon my friend...

Hi Jerry: I just upgraded to Premium. Looks good. I am progressing well on the training - up to Lesson 9 in Course-1. More today.

Hey Neil,

Just want to drop by personally once again after reading through your profile.

I must say I admire you for still constantly learning and improving yourself even at such a senior age as compared to me.

But I feel so sad for you that you still have to work for 80 hours a week. The good news is that you're in the right place to build your passive income. I'm really excited for you!

So I really hope you can follow closely with the training here and then follow through.

If you're able to put in consistent effort, I'm sure a steady passive income is not far from you :)

Thanks Jerry. Yes - I don't mind the work or the long hours. I just need to put all that effort into something that will not have to be done over and over again (never ending), like building passive income. I also have a lot of other things that I want to devote my time to - once I free some more up.

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! :)

Thanks Jerry. I had been looking at ClickBank University, but it seemed to be focused more on selling products rather than affiliate marketing. Also, as I discovered with your help, they did not mention the $600 add on that is necessary to make their system work. I appreciate the heads up from you and am happy to be sponsored by you into what looks like a much better solution.

Hey Neil,

Good to hear from you! Yes CB University is more for sellers than affiliates. So you definitely come to the right place to sell other people's products.

I'm really excited for you. I wish you all the best and let's keep in touch!

Have you get started with the training? :) Jerry
