Hey everyone,
Welcome to my Wealthy Affiliate Online Business page! Where dreams come true and hard work pays off!

I remodel kitchens from design, sales, fabrication to installation full time. I've been doing it for over 35 years and have been in woodworking for over 35 years. I still haven't found my passion yet.

I remodel kitchens because I'm really good at it and its clean, respectable work. It's not my passion though. It's time to find something I am passionate about.

I been married for 26 years and have 2 children and a service dog Ava. (My baby) She's a German Shepard and the smarter dog I've ever had.

We've been living in Florida for the past 17 years but home will always be Boston. Christmas lights on a palm tree just don't do it for me. I want to work towards having a home in Boston and here in Florida.

I love music, beautiful lyrics and a melody that moves you and you can't stop humming. Songs that have a beautiful message. I love colors, (Purple in particular) flowers, floral patterns. I'm not afraid to use them in my home. I am passionate about design and using colors and textures together in the home.

For a big man that dresses like a biker may sound odd to most people (I dare anyone to tell me different) LOL but I have a big heart, I love animals, beautiful things, things that move me or pull at my heart strings and I'm a very passionate person.

I'm hoping that WA will give me a new financial string to do the things I love. I guess I'm about to find out.

Hey Darin!

My goodness, you joined April of this year and you've already completed the first 3 courses!!! You definitely didn't come to play.

I love your bio! I think the fact that you have this biker look but love design will probably draw a HUGE audience to you! I think you would probably even do very well on TV as well...should you decide to go in that direction and become successful, all I want is 10% ...OK...maybe 15%!!!

Anyway, I wish you well in finding and developing your passion....with the color purple all around!

You're awesome! I never really thought about doing TV for a living. Maybe YouTube. I'll tell you what, if you can get me a TV contract I'll give you that 15%.

And if you noticed I'm creeping up on a 200 rating. So excited! Ambassadorship here I come ! And yes you're right I didn't come here to play. I really need to make this work.


Respectfully,

Darin

Hey Darin!

I'm just catching up on my notifications. Maybe YouTube may be a good thing to look into. If you have the voice to match the look, you could have millions of hits! Mind you, I'm no expert in the ways of YouTube, but you never know...

Thank you, sir. I do believe I have found my passion in WA! I've been working on it every spare minute I have.

I haven't watched TV since I joined. Trust me, I'm not complaining. I'm all most done with the Certification classes already.

This is something new to me and I find it fascinating and exciting!

Respectfully,

Darin

To your success,

I really appreciate that. I think I'm at that overload right about now. I just want to get the certification courses done. Then I'll take a breather.

When I get back I'll go through all my sites and make sure I have everything to the lessons.

Thanks again,
Darin

Glad to help and share my thoughts,Darin.

I think you are doing just fine.Under normal circumstances,you will get your first sales building your websites and going through the trainings.Some make it faster.A rough guideline is around 2-3 months of consistent building out your websites and traffics on Google search engine/social marketing etc.

To generate substancial amount of money online,it will take approx a year or so.

To your success,
David

Thank you, I'm prepared for it to take a year. I have to go through all my sites to make sure I got everything set to where it needs to be. I've been fortunate enough to have time to work at this.
All the sites I have are ranked but I'm not getting any traffic. It just makes me wonder if I forgot something. That's why I have to go back and do a refresher. course.

Man, I'll tell you what My wrighting skill have taken a dramatic turn for the better. That is what makes this so much fun. Never thought that would happen. I'm loving it!

Share the same experiences about writing and posting useful contents too.It is really not easy initially.

For new sites,it is common to have no or little traffics.It will get better when the rankings increases with more trust of your websites.By building more exposure online.

The most important part is managing it well especially the first 2 years into business.

Managing meaning adding new posts? or editing the ones you have there now or both?

I'm on a lesson now(And this makes sense) that really good content and having the reader engage, like in your content you ask something, getting them to leave a comment. will help to raise your ranking.

Hi Darin

Managing mean to maintain your business websites,ensuring that it is functioning smoothly with no problems.Especially if you are selling products online.Yes,it involve adding new posts.Add in new information to your other pages and posts if you have.

Thanks for the info. I'm getting it slowly but surely. This is a little different than making and installing kitchen cabinets. LOL!!

I am glad to know that you manage to have a better picture of what business is all about.Yes,it is different from doing a job.It require a change of mindset and adaptability.Your biz is just like a plantation,it take a lot of time and effort to look after it well initially.When the plants start to bear fruits,then you will find that the initial hardwork is worthwhile :-)

Well,it is common to wear many hats starting out small with not much resources.Most businesses i came across begin from humble beginning.It is all right to leverage on some biz tools to manage the biz better depending on the budget.

Hey! Was the decision to upgrade to premium a tough call for you?

If you have any doubts about that being wrong, forget about it! Once you make this your daily habit, it will become addicting.

Get involved, introduce yourself in chat and follow some people and make it happen today...everyday!

I'll be looking forward to reading about your progress and success stories soon.

Sheldon

PS. Let's talk on the PM some day about business and taking it to the next level.

I can that you're colorful and live your life beautifully and it is the real you, Sir! I am glad you with your on way doing things with a sense of free spirit. Some other time I believed people that think we are odd, strange, bla bla bla and not feel guilt take an advantage out of us is the one is actually the real trouble themselves and most often than not as I found out the one afraid to be criticized even the goo critics that will only help us prosper.

It is not something you are lacking, but it is something reach too much to handle that like me after 3 times the same people killing me, they can't stand on my first killing of them.

Previous occasion I might back off and not up to giving back some stick to them. But, it is just giving them uninvited move for more! Then I start protecting myself more and close the door completely after 3 times. At least, we show some patience there but that kind of people will never learn while getting the fun out of it.

I am glad, my friend, you opt to be on the networking together with me at WA and beyond. I knew sooner rather than later, the search for your real passion will e around the corner. My passion since I knew it when I was 13 never changed since. It is Manchester United, Books (more on football or sports and other related to my music likings), Metallica, RHCP, and being myself wholeheartedly while finding life balance myself. When you are mentioning Boston, its reminds me Boston Celtics and Larry (Joe) Bird.

To your success my friend :)

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! :)

I've got a couple. Trying to make up my mind on which one. Was really leaning to bitcoins. Its really coming up and popular. Thinking I should ride the wave. What do think?

Hey Darin,

I don't know a lot about bitcoins, so I can't add any insight there, but according to the keyword tools, there's plenty of search volume for them.

When you get further into the lessons you'll find out where and how to find affiliate programs for bitcoins. From there, you'll be able to look at your options in terms of how to generate and income through affiliate programs relating to bitcoins.

Hello Darin,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Welcome Darin, to Wealthy Affiliates and thanks for accepting my invitation to check it out.

There's a lot to learn here, the best place to start would be the level 1 certification course. So start with the first lesson by clicking on the link below. Be sure to create a profile and add a picture, that way you'll get lots of help from all the peeps in WA. You'll find out how to do this in the getting started link above.

Sadly some people don't even get this far, for some unknown reason.

If you can do this, (i.e.) follow simple instructions, (implementing as you go), soon you will be on your way to making your first sale.

And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/affilicoach or by private message if you are a premium member.

There are a ton of other features you have access to right now, but they are explained in your main training linked above. Your #1 job right now is to get to lesson 1!

★ ★ ★ Access Your Bonuses! ★ ★ ★

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff from me.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership.

☆ ☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 5 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 4-Part-Series Live Case Study webinar. It's video series where a professional internet marketer creates a complete 'niche website'. All steps are included and thoroughly explained, including research, rank, content creation and monetization. Total length of the videos is 4+ hours

This will give you a broad overview of the type of site you will create on Wealthy Affiliate. I think it's always a good idea to know the direction you are headed before you start your journey.

Please feel free to ask questions in the community through live chat or the Getting started classroom above. Or as I mentioned before, hit me up anytime you want in WA.

Anyway, I know you'd be eager to have a browse around so I'll let you get your feet wet.

Thanks Coach Frank,
I found this through a review you wrote about a MLM (Kyani) I was looking at. I've been in many MLM's , more than I care to say. It's been a good six years since the last one I was in and I only was looking now because I miss the buzz, the people, the interaction with others and the excitement telling others how many people I talked with , and having people join my team. It certainly wasn't the money, just the dream of it. Because I never made any. LOL I'm looking forward to digging to WA to see what it's about and the potential of some sort of finical success I can gain. So far what I've seen is nothing short of AMAZING! To have all the tools, system and training for me to build a successful online business. Genus! I know this will work because everything is right here at my finger tips. All I have to do is the work. That's all I need! So thank you for putting this opportunity in front of me. It would have taken me years to figure out how to build a online business.

I'm going to for worn you, You will be hearing from me! LOL
