About Rolfbratli
Joined August 2019
Hi, I am a 74 year young grand dad (the age is just a number - your age is what you feel like.. and I sometimes feel like I am 20 again and as confused as I was then....

I am an Engineering Geologist from the Technical University in Norway, and I have been an entrepreneur most of my professional life running several consultancy companies. In 1999 I mover to United Arab Emirates as a rock mechanics specialist and started a consultancy company there with one of my friends.I have been there since and have been involved in many projects as well as training within rock mechanics for the oil and gas industry in the area.

One of my passions are rock mechanics and how this can save money fort his industry and improve the environment if we implement it correctly in the oil and gas industry.

Based on my technical background I have been curious about Internet and Internet business for a long time and now I am going to use some of my "free" time to get a better understanding and maybe become an online entrepreneur...?

Whatever I learn and succeed with, I will share with others, as this creates a positive circle of people that support each other. It is my experience in life that positive attitude and a helping hand will get you far if this is genuinely done to help others.

Hello Rolf ... thank you for the follow. What a fascinating career you have had. Have you ever worked or consulted on a fracking well drilling project? Done properly (using the proper soil mechanics) can this be an environmentally safe process?

You're going to love this WA platform. It is the most technically advanced training platform on the web. I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Hi Dennis - you're welcome - but the honor is mine to be in your network.

And yes, I have consulted on massive fracing jobs, as rock mechanics (more related to the down hole rocks than the soil) is my .main specialty and my passion.

I am here to understand the Internet and then I will re-purpose the material from my 25 years of running rock mechanics courses for the oil and gas industry, for online consumption - I.e. a website for rock mechanics courses and what have you...

Cheers tolf k.

Hi, and thank you for your contact. I joined in August and I was 71 years of age on the 14th of that month. I run another business which I am hoping to replace with my online business with WA.

You are right, it is only a number even though sometimes I think mine is a bit too high, there are many shall we say senior people, in WA who are doing very well.

It is good to hear from you and I wish you every success.
Best wishes, Rob

PS I have added you to my network, thanks for adding me to yours.

Hi Rob and congratulations on your 71 years!

I had my anniversary on September 3, so now it's official - I AM 74 years (nearly 3/4 of a century...).

But I will continue exploring as long as I have my faculties intact, as I cannot think of a life without learning...

Broaden your horizon give so much back, and you xan spread some good vibes to the people around you...

Hello, GrandpaRolf. Thanks for leaving a message in my profile and adding me to your network. Instead of replying there, I prefer to reply here.
You are awesome, GrandpaRolf. ... age is just a number ... good one. The one I admire about you is your spirit for learning. There is a Chinese saying, "Learn until the day we die." ... which means life long learning.
Nice meeting you, GrandpaRolf and respect your good intention of wanting to help others.
All the best to you and cheers. :-)

Hi Kichang - thank you for the encouragement!

Yes I want to help as many people as possible to reach their goals, as I will reach mine in doing so.

And the Chinese saying is so correct, we learn to we die. Or to paraphrase....: the day you stop learning you die.

Because I have observed that a lot of people stop learning when they are out of school, be it the University College or whatever other institution.

That's kind of sad, as there are so many aspects of this life to treasure, and by learning something every day you enrichen your life and the lives of the ones around you...

Nice meeting you and let's keep in touch, as I like to write and read as well as discuss, not necessarily business all the time, but life in general.

All the best and much success to you here at WA!

Hi Rolf,

Thank you for the return follow it is greatly appreciated!!

Age does not bar us from learning from each other I have watched plenty of toddlers trying to do something and try numerous ways before figuring out how it could be done.

I think for many of us don't remember those different possibilities of doing things and they escape our imagination as we get older.

I hope this is not the case with you nor myself, because I like to think of myself as an open-minded thinker. So age should have no control over how I do things or the ways I do things.

Earn while you learn: how great is that!

Hi there

I see you were asking if there were other ways of making use of material in WA, here is a link to some training I wrote, the first one is about sharing your own link & following that is how to share the blogs of other WA members. It's a very cool way to share on your social media. I have done this with good results Blessings

Hello Rolf 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.

Hi Robert thank you for the welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

Yes, it is a steep learning curve but am enjoying the training. Something I have to read a couple of times before I get it - but expanding your horizon is in my opinion one of the best things there is.

I enjoy reading so I'll take you up on the invite to read your blogs. And if I get stuck you'll get a private message to point me in the right direction.

Thank you for following this curious novice on his journey towards success. It may take some time but I feel it is possible to achieve with the training provided with me taking action and implmenting the lessons learned.

Cheers granpaRolf

No probs Rolf and if/when you read my blogs make sure you choose the ones that will help you in conjunction with whatever training you are currently taking.

Also as a new member you may not be aware of this but it’s a good idea (only if you are interested in your rank within WA) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.

Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing else.

But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.

Have a great Tuesday.
Robert

Hi Frank&Tina; - thank you for the welcome to Wealthy Affiliate, and thank you for the references you gave me - points well taken.

I too am familiar with struggle, I am currently recovering from a hearth attack last month!

Reading and learning here at WA is my therapy -having a long term dream to look forward to!

I am trying to spend some time learning and reading here every day. But my progress is not impressive but I have my small victories every day.

And as you said - it's not the destination but the journey that's important!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us.

Wealthy Affiliate is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business. I tried to do this alone before and was completely lost.

Now I know why.

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

Google rewards people with websites that provide value to their visitors. It helps to boost their ad revenue of course! And that helps your websites get high rankings. But it takes time to build credibility. Once they realize your site is an authority site, good things will happen faster.

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!

Edwin

Hi Edwin - thank you for the welcome!

And your advice of following the training is well taken - I will do!

My first concern is to go through the Bootcamp to see how this turns out.. But after the welcome you all have given me I will need to spend some time with the community here as well.

I am having a blast learning - but the important part is to put what I learn into practise!

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.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi Kyle, thanks for the update.

I know it takes some doing to get a profitable business up and running as I have done several through my time. Therefore, I am focusing on going through the training as fast as possibl so I can gt started on my niche, which is promoting WA!

My 2 first pages of my free site is already up and running, using the same theme as you used when you showed how to get prepared for the search engines.

I discovered a couple of spelling mistakes in my "About Rolf, but I will move forward and make more pages after researching proper keywords to get the low hanging fruits.

I plan to make posts about affiliate marketing in general, with a lot of emphasis on basic stuff that people need to know to avoid all the scams.

Also, I need to become an affiliate in WA, but I have not figured out where that is yet, so if you could point me to the registration it would be fine.

I had a hearth attack recently, but the hospital here was very good and found the reason, namly blocked arteries to my hearth.

They accessed these veins through a vein in my right arm and put in stents, so now I am like a 40 year old again, so watch out(!) - as my hearth has got a new lease of life.

That's why I am optimistic and is starting on a new venture - -because what's life without challenges??

Best regards

Retired but still not obsolete!

PS. Sorry for all the words, but I wanted to express my gratitude for the opportunity, and explain something about myself. Maybe something of this could go into "About Rolf"? What do you think?

I am glad to hear about your recovery Rolf, it is always best to push forward and look forward. You are capable of whatever you set your mind to. ;)

If you are interested in promoting WA, I highly suggest you work through the Affiliate Bootcamp. This is training that I created and put a lot of thought and energy into. It is very interactive and if you work your way through all of the phases I can assure you that you will have a business in place.

Also, you can get all of your affiliate links from the WA Affiliate Program page:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/share

Here you will get everything from your stats, the program details and commission structure, your affiliate links, create your custom messages, get banners, and some other awesome features.

In respect to your questions, your about me page is in essence, a page just about you. Why are you interested in this particular niche and why do you want to help others out? Share that along with a bit about yourself and an image and you will be just fine.

There is no right or wrong with an about me page, it is simply a page about you and you can dictate what is said on that page (and you can always update this as you progress within your niche). If you want me to take a look at it after it is published I will be happy to help you out. Hope this helps Rolf!
