Hello All.
I've disabled all my email notifications.
Therefore I will not receive notifications about new followers, new posts, etc.
If anyone follows me now, please don't be offended when I don't follow you back.
I need to cut out as many distractions as possible in order to try to set up a business in order to get myself out of debt.
Once I have an income coming in I will enable my email notifications again and start communicating again. I may even start writing posts again.
All I need is time.
All the best with your goals everyone.
Cheers, Ian

G'day there Ian, another Oz from OZ here, with a belated message welcoming you back to WA. Because you are as interested in writing as I am I have decided to follow you and hope we catch up one day. What part of Oz do you occupy? I'm here in the south about 2 hours + north of Adelaide. Not quite snowing yet! Stay in touch. All the best, Simon

Thanks for the follow Ian, and many blessings on your efforts. Do you have any tips for the rest of us in WA?
Reply
okydoky Premium
Thanks Edward. My best tip is, if you can, try to not to get distracted like I have been. Every time I think I know which path I want to take I end up getting distracted by some other idea. I have a lot of ideas I want to try but I have to start to focus enough to put my ideas into action.
If you can follow the training, and set up a niche website, that will at least get you started.
Do you belong to a community group, or a sporting group, that would benefit from a website?
I think that a really good way of learning would be to, before building a site for yourself, try to build one for your community or sporting group.
That's something that I'm going to try. I had already planned to eventually build websites for some local community groups.
My theory is that if we offer to build a site for a community group we are more likely to be compelled to build it.
I think this would be a good way to get motivated. I have a few community groups in mind. I don't know which one to approach first but I will soon.
While building the community group site, I will still work on a site of my own.
All the best Edward.
Cheers, Ian

Doesn't everyone in Australia ride kangaroos to work.....(I'm from sunny QLD). Nice to meet you Ian, a wealth of knowledge you have to pass around....Glad you decided to come back, if only for wa members' sake.

It's great to meet another Aussie here Damien. There are quite a number of us here at WA. I've been to Queensland only three times, the last time being in 1988. I enjoyed every trip there. On my first trip, I stayed with a youth group at Currumbin in the early 1970's. The week after that a cyclone hit Currumbin.
We don't all ride kangaroos to work. In NSW, some of us ride koalas and emus.

G'day Ian, just another Aussie here now following you. I too returned to WA. Second time is going to be a charm. The problem with guru marketers is that their primary motivation is to keep selling to you because now you are part of their "funnel". In my experience, they are much better marketers than they are coaches. There are a few exceptions, of course. ~ Jude
Reply
okydoky Premium
Thanks Jude. Welcome back. I see you kept your original 2010 join date on your profile. I wouldn't have thought that would be possible after such a long time. You must have kept your original signup details. I didn't. Oh well, them's the brakes. I think the funnel system is alright as long as you don't charge the outlandish prices that the gurus charge, and also as you long as you provide a product that people are searching for.

glad you came back. Yes there are a lot of "gurus" that promise a lot but do not deliver. If you can find something for free I would go with that. Hmm Phil52 is an Aussie? They are taking over!!! Carson and Kyle will lose control and this will become *gasp* AA- Aussie Affiliate!!! All kidding aside if I can help just ask. I have reached out to others and all their help has been invaluable. To your success,

Mike

Thanks Mike. Yep, I think we Aussies could be taking over WA. I have a few Aussie followers here now.
Phil52 has been putting out a lot of trainings on Screenflow software. I haven't had time to take a good look at his training yet but I will.
Thanks for your offer for help.
To your success as well.

G'Day Ian and welcome back to WA. You can probably teach me a few things as you've been here before me. Take solace in the fact that you are moving forward in a positive direction now.

Thanks for the follow and if there's any way I can help you, I'd be more than happy to help a fellow Aussie. Have fun and cheers, Phil.

Great job, Ian..just left you a note.

Btw, just a suggestion to everyone...whenever you get some comments in your website, please be sure to respond asap in there (not here). Many think that this is just for some kind of "practice" or commenting from fellow members. But we would like to show our website visitors that we mean business with them and we don't leave any comments unanswered so that they will feel that their feedback matters to us. This is our business, let's handle it with professionalism.

Just saying. Please don't get offended.

I agree with you. My next project tomorrow is to set up A-Weber so that handling emails will be easier. I will also film it with my camtasia software and add the video of that to my next post.
Thanks for your appreciated input.
By the way, it's 12.21am Saturday here in Eastern Australia, so I will actually be setting up the A-Weber later today.

betcha Premium
I wanna check out the camtasia software later. I haven't done A-weber yet. For now I just ignore mails that I don't need.

It's only 9:40am here in Texas. I barely started my day. Have fun and enjoy every bit of work you do. Rest if you must and wake up to a beautiful day with renewed strength. More blessings to you!

Oh, okydoky! I read the pain there! Been there, had mentor pointer, then nothing more than need tons more money to make it work.
Here, WA is a Brilliant thing that Kyle and Carson built to share what they learned to make it as easy as possible. I love it!
Here is to our success here! I am not looking at anything else, but I know what I can add to my pages once I get really flowing! It think like you can too!

Thanks Kymee. My memory of when I was here in 2009 are vaque these days. The only member I remember from then was PotPieGirl, who rarely posts here these days but I noticed she's still collecting members.
The only thing I remember about the forum was that it seemed a bit difficult to navigate the site, unlike today. It's much easier now and everyone here is easy to talk to.

Yep you are back at the right place and anything we do will teach us something, even if it is what we should not do, that is very valuable---Knowing what not to do. I want say good luck but the hard I work the luckier I seem to get !!! So, work hard and smart, all shiny things are not gold, put on the blinders with a plan and dont look around.

Hey Ian, just wanted to pop back and see how you are doing? I noticed that you haven't quite set-up your account yet, just wanted to let you know there is a video on how to do this if there is any confusion.

Setting up your account will lead to much better help here within the community as people feel like they can connect with you better (with an image and a description)

Just wanted to make sure that all was good and if you do need a hand with anything, just let me know! :)

Thanks Carson.
I'm slowly absorbing the site and the "Get Started Here" lessons.
I was with WA a few years ago but didn't think I had the time to stick with it.
Instead, I wasted my money on other areas where I lost a lot of money.
Since May 2013, now that I have a lot more time, I've been studying IM through both paid and unpaid sources, including an expensive course with one of those gurus. Now that I'm back with WA I wish I'd never left. I have a lot of knowledge from those other sources but I believe that WA is the key I need to get everything working. I look forward to going through the courses and to interacting with the WA community. That was one of my mistakes I made last time, not interacting with the WA community. If I had interacted then I may have been encouraged to stay. I am certain that this time I will stay in the WA community.
Carson, I thank you and Kyle for starting this community in the first place and for being so reachable.

Hey Ian,

Great to hear that the absorption of information is going well :) There are a lot of places out there that will claim to make you rich and provide you with the essentials to building an online business. This is simply not true. No other program has everything that you need like we do here at WA.

Great to hear that you're back and motivated to engage in the system. You'll do very well this time around!

I'll be here to help along the way.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Ian!

I hope that you are enjoying your first day here within the community and have had a chance to poke around and see what we have to offer. As you get started I'd like to suggest working through the "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)" course as it will give you a very solid understanding of how Internet marketing works and how you can leverage the Internet to earn revenue.

This training is on your Dashboard and can be found in the main menu:
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1

I am here to help at each step of the way so please do not hesitate to ask for anything :)
