About RGerritsen
Joined July 2019
I love travelling and meeting different people. I was born in South Africa, At the age of 21 I left and moved to London/Edinburgh. I lived there for a combination of 20 years. I have finally settled in the South of France where I can say that for the first time I feel really "rooted".

I am determined to run my own successful online business from home. I am not scared of work, I will put in all the hours needed in order to gain the independence, gratifying feeling of accomplishment. I am very excited about this journey

Superb goals Renee! You have a large network and community here at WA that you can leverage for help and support along the way, myself included.

It all starts with a goal...then is followed by action...then is followed by results. This is going to be how it pans out for you and I can't wait to hear about all of your successes in the days, weeks, and months ahead! :)

H Renee,

Welcome to WA and thank you kindly for the return follow I really do appreciate all of them I get!!

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 this because I need to. This thing is not about me, it's about YOU!

The training provides the tools it's up to you to reach success or not!! Glad to see that you went premium that means you are serious and will be giving it your best shot. If you ever need help or encouragement just PM me and i will respond back just as soon as I see it.

Living Life Large, Calvin

Hi Renee from South Africa. Thank you for the follow.

I must have traveled to the UK a good 15 times in the past 30 years by now and I cycled through France, including the beautiful South, 3 times. Certainly a stunning part of the world you call home these days.

All the best with your internet venture on WA.

Warm regards

Hello RGerritsen ,my good friend please advise me on what to do next.As a new premium member,i just bought the domain name but when I got to the area of chosen the theme and plugins,i say the price tag.presently I don't even have money because I didn't know there are still expenses to be incurred.infact, it almost discouraged me.I have built my website but got stuck concerning the theme and plugins.
Reply
RGerritsen Premium
Hello sir. As a premium member you do not pay for your themes
There is an option to upgrade, but it is certainly not necessary. The same applies to the plug ins. They are free but for additional features you can upgrade. But again not necessary as the core of thr plugin does the job. So all in all, it is all free. Good luck!!!

Hi Renee,

I apologise for the delay in replying, I have had some problems with emails being delivered to the wrong folders!

I spent some time in Scotland travelling around Edinburgh, Glasgow, and most towns and cities up to Aberdeen. It was a good experience but after a few years, I returned to London where I am today. From my experience of the South of France, I imagine it to be a good place to settle.

I see you joined in July, I joined this month so please keep in touch as we shall be progressing through the training at roughly the same time, although you are ahead of me.

Thanks for your contact and I wish you every success with your online business.

Best wishes
Rob

Lovely to hear from you Rob. Thank you for your message. I loved Edinburgh - such a beautiful city. London will always be very close to my heart, such a magnificent, beautiful place. Yes, the South of France is gorgeous - sun and warmth most of the year. The language is a big problem for me, but I continue trying. Cannes is rather international, especially with all of the conferences held here, so if it really impossibly for me to explain something in French, the people change over to English.

I am loving my time here at WA; There is so much to learn and do. I am getting along nicely with my website, but of course I am still not an expert in Wordpress - i still have plenty of training to do.

My site is indexed, as are all 15 of my posts. I have page 1 of Bing and Yahoo, but nothing on Google yet. Am still waiting for my first sale too :) - Keeping the champagne on ice!
How are you getting on?

i hope our paths cross again soon

Hi Renee,
Thanks for your reply.

I am making progress slowly and I shall have more time after this month. My main business installs LED lighting in schools and public buildings, so you can imagine August was probably the wrong time to start with WA!

I have managed to have Google index my website but I haven't done much work on it yet. This month time is very short. Working in schools requires trying to fit in as much work as possible during the holidays, in fact it's like trying to do what most businesses do in a year but in 13 weeks! I should have a fairly clear run between September and March next year to concentrate on WA. No one wants to work over Christmas and it is a shorter holiday for schools.

I don't really understand the indexing, posts, yahoo and bing things yet as I haven't reached that far with the training. I have only chosen a domain name and some of the word press deletions. Then I received a message to say the site has been indexed on Google. Afterwards I have had no time to spend on WA. I am replying to your message and then rushing off to see a client!

I am hoping to be able to report more progres next week with WA. It was great to hear from you and I hope everything is going well.
Best wishes,
Rob
PS I hope you soon become more fluent in French! They say it is much quicker to learn a language when you live in the country and everyone around you speaks it. `

Hi-
You sound like a determined person. I'm glad that you feel "rooted" in the south of France. It is a good thing to feel that way about the place that you live. I feel that way about where I live, too,-the San Francisco Bay area. I believe that you will succeed because you are willing to put in the time and hard work to do it.
You seem like the kind of person that I could learn from so I'm going to follow you.
All the best and good luck to you.
Mike

Hello Renee And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you will no doubt have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can 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 500+ blogs I have published within WA.

Also 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.

Hello! Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate and congratulations for choosing the Premium Plan rather than staying in Free Plan.

To me it sounds you're really serious with building your own online business and earn a steady passive income from the niche you love.

Given, I encourage you to take the training seriously and spend time to build your website and content that your readers love as well as your potential business partners. This won't be an overnight process.

You need to understand that building a lifelong business such as earning passive income entails a lot of consistent hard work without self-doubt. Not an inch of it.

With tenacity and consistent practice of doing your best, you will receive a pleasant reward in the end. If you have questions, feel free to send me a message. I'll be happy to help each other out.

Again, congratulations and welcome for being here. Have a nice day! Let's keep in touch. :)

Cheers,

Mecyll

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us.

WA is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business.

There are so many tricks of the trade and it saves so much time having it all laid out clearly in the WA training programs.

Keep following the training and exercises every day. Give it a year to see significant results. You'll be a happy camper by then. We all make progress at different rates and it is possible to see meaningful results in 4-6 months. Google cannot be rushed.


When you get stuck, and you will, just ask for help in the discussion area located below each lesson. Scroll down to find it. Another member who has the answer will get back to you promptly.

In the meantime have fun with the program. Much success to you.

Cheers! Stay Strong

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.
