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

Richard, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Richard.

We honestly wouldn't have it any other way Richard. We built WA based on helping folks and in the 12 years we have been in business we have not veered away from this.

We have lots of exciting stuff coming through this year that will further benefit members and continue to validate the idea of putting members first. :)

I look forward to working with you!

Has anyone changed themes lately .. would love hear to hear how challenging you found it?

I took the plunge and switched to a Genesis Pro Theme .. it was scary at first and now I am getting the hang of it. Still have a lot to work on and learning the functions of widgets .

Wow no mean feat..but if you watch the tutorial over and over again and practice the steps everything makes sense. That's the great kick I get out lof earning, it will probably stick in my mind forever

A very warm welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. You are on the most exciting journey of your life. Yes it seems challenging, there may be times you want to quit because you feel you not getting anywhere.

But each step you take is progress. Learning anything new is fear of the unknown but the more you practice, your skills and confidence develop. Passion,Self Belief and not quitting are the cornerstones of this business.

You will always have help and support from day one. Take your time with each lesson. Be easy on yourself as there is a lot of information to absorb,start from lesson one and work your way till you have completed them.

And by the way! Do come up for air from time to time. You don't have to spend six at one go. I break my time up to 2 hours in the morning, two at lunch time two in the evening. You will find what works for you as you stay the course.

Here's to your Success

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.

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 .
