A very warm welcome to all New and Seasoned Members.

It's amazing what talent we really possess if we are willing to explore our own uniqueness, potential and creativity.

Since joining Wealthy Affiliate, I personally feel I am going from strength to strength and all my dormant faculties are coming alive. I am using a part of my brain that has been inactive for years.

Finally I am experiencing a whole new shift in my thoughts and attitude to what’s possible to creating a lifestyle that is possible and achievable.

I never ever gave up on my dreams and goals but kept on chipping away til I achieved them.

In my teens I took up a boat building apprenticeship and hated every minute - a skill once learned never leaves you - I am still handy with a hammer and did my own lounge flooring in my house.

At 20 I jumped on the first available cargo boat and worked my way around the world as a ship's steward for 7 years. I learned how to serve food, I developed culinary skills. I am an expert cook and love having my family and friends for a meal. My wife still makes the best cakes.

I visited exotic places that I dreamt about since childhood. Seeing the world,meeting people from various cultures and tasting made me realize that I was making things happen with intent, passion and purpose.

My jobs were many and varied, being a postman was my most enjoyable job. I started work at 6 am and finished at 1 pm.That meant I could spend quality time with my children and really bond with them.

I also worked for a Human Rights Organisation and helped one Political Asylum seeker achieve his goal. I speak three languages (English, German, and Afrikaans).I sang in a choir in Cape Town and Galway). I did voluntary work with homeless children in South Africa.

I battled to get three homeless teenagers with lots of potential back into mainstream schooling. In my spare time, I fundraise and raise awareness for abused women and abandoned children in Cape Town.

My hobbies are many and I love cooking with a passion - before I invite my friends to taste my food. I always ask them if they have a life insurance, as I don't take responsibility for my cooking.

I taught my sons to cook, I personally think husbands should be pro-active in married life. I am a keen fan of Personal Development,Meditation and Healthy Living. My wife and I attended gym regularly and would definitely recommend it. Laughter is my passion and I like a good laugh daily it’s therapeutic

I was a late starter with everything I did. I married in my late thirties to a most beautiful woman she still is. In 2014 - I graduated with a BA Degree in Political Science and German at the young age of 67.

I am a father of two super hands-on Dads. My grandchildren are just so beautiful. My daughter loves challenges, travels a lot and her work takes her from Moscow, Milan Beijing New York and has finally settled down and is extremely happy in her marriage.

My wife writes poetry and had her first novel published on Amazon. We have been married for 37 years and travel as often as we can to see our grandchildren in South Africa at least once a year.

Life is what You make it. All the ups and downs of life have made me more resilient and tough-minded. I am no longer afraid to try new things. I am at that stage where nothing scares me anymore.

I never give up and Can't is a word I never use in my vocabulary. I believe we are here to love, to serve and enjoy life in Abundance and get paid handsomely for the service we provide.

My niche is about dads who have just become new dads and don't realize how important their role is in their child's future development.

Wealthy Affiliate is by far the is the best Online Business I have come across. The support the members have given me over the years is just utterly amazing.

I most certainly would recommend you sign up for the premium membership as soon you are able. I wish you every success with Wealthy affiliate

- My philosophy in life -
" Don't be afraid to make mistakes - I have made thousands"

Thanks for reading my profile and I wish you many successful years at Wealthy Affiliate

Hello Richard and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
Since you joined in 2014 you will have come to realise that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you haven't already been doing so, can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
Thank you for the follow anyway and I will follow you as well.
Remember, if you get stuck you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.
Robert Allan

Wealthy Affiliate has a lot to offer including teaching to have faith in one's own ability. I just received a heartwarming message from a grandmother that my latest post helped understand her grand daughter's illness better, That to me was better than making a sale. My website is gaining trust with readers and I am very happy with that .

Rich (Richard I presume), nice to hear from you. I must say that is one of the best profiles I have read. From this I believe it would be a pleasure to meet you. One day - who knows.

I would have looked at any of your websites but there is none posted here, so I will make that (awful) assumption that you are doing well. Do keep in touch.

Nice site. For some reason some of your words are very small. This appears to be random.

There is a fellow here who is a single dad with two boys. His site is about this. You might like to read about him, His link is https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/juliusscar.

I am helping him out with his spelling and grammar so his site should be getting easier to read.

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live last week and the one on sleep apnea has been up for a couple of months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.
