About REaston
Joined January 2015
I've done a number of things in my adult life including:
- emigrating to Canada from England
- being President of a financial institution
- moving to, and owning a business in, Florida
and currently owning a bookkeeping business in partnership with my wife.

Also, I volunteer at the local Hospital Auxiliary as Director, overseeing the Finance Department.

Never really had much interest in hobbies but I was involved in curling and still enjoy watching it.

We are both well beyond retirement age but we're active and look forward to travelling extensively in the near future. Which brings me to why I'm getting involved with Wealthy Affiliates. I'm looking to establish a portable on-line business to replace our current location-based bookkeeping business. I want something that can be maintained/promoted from anywhere in the world and will also produce a nice income. I don't ever expect to retire because there's still so much to do!!

No Bucket List - just make it up as we go along:-)

P. S. Quiet happy to offer any advice/tips regarding business start-up, record keeping and bookkeeping if anyone wants it. No Tax advice though as Tax rules are country specific.

If I purchase my domain name from Namecheap.com is that also where I purchase the hosting?

I’ve just gone Premium - Oh my!!! I’m planning on promoting WA and have a couple of Domain names in mind: http://AffiliateMarketingMadeEasy.com or http://MakeAffiliateMarketingWorkForYou.com. The alternative is a brand name like http://GryphonAffiliateMarketing.com. Any comments or observations on these would be most appreciated

Hi Kyle. If I upgrade to Premium before the end of the 1st 7 days, how much would the Annual fee be and how would I do it? The upgrade button just seems to allow for monthly payments.
Reply
Kyle Premium
It is $47 after the first month. This includes absolutely everything you need to create and grow a business online from the training, the support, the tools, the websites/hosting, the mentoring, network...you name it.

We also have a yearly option of $359 which is a big discount and that works out to be $29 per month. You can choose either or.

Hope this helps you out Robert and if you have any further questions let me know.

REaston Premium
Tks Kyle. I know this sounds stupid but where do I go to buy the yearly option because all I can see when I push an upgrade button is the monthly option.
Reply
Kyle Premium
When you go monthly, then you have access to yearly. It is pro-rated so if you want to upgrade to yearly right away, your first month will be used towards your yearly membership.

I agree with the notion of no bucket list. Make it up as you go along! Cool!

Thanks. Its not that I don't have any direction (which I don't yet!!) its just that I don't want to get locked into anything before I really know what I want.

Just thought I would check in and see how things are going with you! I hope all is well and you are enjoying yourself here within the community.

I hope you are enjoying the training and making some wonderful progress! Please do touch base with me if you ever need a hand with anything or are feeling stuck, I am here to help Robert. :)

Hi Kyle. As I still haven't decided on a niche, I've moved from Getting Started Lesson 4 (no website yet) to Affiliate Bootcamp to see what's involved there. From what I can see so far, I can go back to Getting Started, create a niche/website etc and also incorporate a link from there to Bootcamp. Is that correct?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, you can go any direction you like. I know you will love the training over at bootcamp and a niche is selected for you there (the make money niche), but if you ever want to run a niche by me and use the Getting Started training I would be happy to help you out there as well.

Wonderful to have a fellow Canadian here at WA Robert (you still in Canada?). Carson and I are both from the west coast of Canada (Victoria).

I know you are going to love the community here at WA and absolutely everything you need is here to create and grow a business within any niche.

I want to help make your online dreams become a reality so if you ever do need a hand with anything going forward, simply drop me a reply. :)

Thanks Kyle, yes still in Canada, Peterborough - N of Toronto. I plan to make a decision on WA within the 7 days. Right now I'm totally overwhelmed and haven't decided on a niche. However,I am considering something geared towards 'Seniors' (after all, I am one) but I really haven't thought it all through yet. Hope to have a much clearer idea before the end of the 7 days.

Hi Carson, Thanks for the Welcome. Just posted my Profile and first 2 Images and I'm looking forward to seeing how it goes for the 7 days. I'll make a decision before it expires. Robert

Awesome Robert, do know that this is not a "trial" as your Starter membership does not end. Your Premium communication is for the first 7 days, but beyond that you will still have access to the community, your websites, and training.
