About RonFrey
Joined September 2014
A huge hello from me, Ron, living in Durban, South Africa which is on the East Coast of this wonderful yet complex, cosmopolitan country that I call home.

PAST AND FUTURE PLANS WITH WA

For the last couple of years, due to work constraints and travel, I have been a starter member here at WA. During that time I have been following the training and learning as I go but that will hopefully change within the next couple of months and then in November I hope to go yearly. Within the next two years, my realistic dream/plan is to work from home, beside the pool and also spend more time with my family in the bush (veldt) photographing the wildlife, that is our heritage.

QUICK UPDATE - JAN 2019

Well it has taken me just over four years, but yes, I've gone over to the other side - I've gone Premium, not just part-time but FULL TIME!!!

Eventually, I have got to where I want to be, working full time online, no more morning traffic, no more corporate meetings just to plan more meetings and ... NO MORE CORPORATE BACK STABBING - GOD I AM NOT GOING TO MISS
IT ONE BIT - I HAVE ARRIVED !!!

WHAT AN AWESOME SPRINGBOARD THAT WEALTHY AFFILIATE
can be if one just has the time to soak it all in, put into practice,
and not be sidetracked by the "Fools Gold" that litters the internet.

ABOUT ME

I'm 50 ish yrs young, am blessed to have a son and daughter and a lovely wife and friend, Tracy.

I was a technical salesperson involved in the selling of trucks and buses throughout SA and Sub-Saharan Africa which till recently involved a huge amount of travel throughout Africa and Brazil.

I enjoy photography, traveling, exploring new places with our animals, which are in essence, our extended family.

I am sick and tired of the false promises and lies that seem to haunt the internet so I'm ecstatic to have stumbled upon WA before wasting too much money.

The honesty, openness, generosity when sharing knowledge, in-depth training and general caring of others are but a few of the positive attributes that will keep me here for a long time to come.

IMAGES TOP RIGHT

The chap on the right is a Rhodesian Ridgeback named "Oscar".
The girl on the skateboard is "Tessa", she's a cross Rottweiler / Staffie - what a combo, but what an awesome girl and YES it does snow in Africa !!!
Taken about 120 Km from the coast. The last image is of our new addition to the family and his name is Tsar, a Rhodesian Ridgeback -Yes you get the picture - we love Ridgebacks

Well, that's that from me for now.

May all your future financial and personal dreams come true with the help,
kindness, and guidance that you'll find here at Wealthy Affiliate.

"It is well with my soul."

Hi Ron, thanks for following me and I am now following you back. I hope to be in the position that you are in a year or two. Living the laptop lifestyle is a dream of mine and one that I need to work for as much as possible.

I love the pics of your "family". My dad's favorite dog was a Ridgeback, although he never got the opportunity to have one. I may have to try to find a way to get one to honor my dad's memory.

Anyway, it is a pleasure to meet you and I wish you the best!

That’s awesome...I have a boxer mix that has food aggression and we have to be careful with the other dogs in the house.

No Aggro would be a relief!

Hi Ron,
Just stopped in to say thank you for the follow! It certainly is great to meet you here at WA...wow, I never realized that it does snow in Africa too!

I hope all is going well for you and your family. Btw, those are some beautiful dogs you have there! I bet they keep you busy, but what would life be without our four-legged family members, lol.

Anyways, I have to agree that there are so many false promises and scams out there it's sickening! Wealthy Affiliate is definitely the only place I've seen that actually teaches the way to success. Before finding WA, I was almost ready to throw in the towel on ever finding anywhere that actually taught something useful...but, managed to stumble in here as you did, lol. So glad I did, and haven't looked back since!

Looking forward to hearing more from you in the days ahead..
Best wishes :) ~Sherry

Hi Ron,

Thank you no much for your follow from this 76 years young retired teacher, still a newbie WA Premium family member.
Living in Leeds, UK with my wife, Susan, it is fabulous to be able to communicate with WA members from all parts of the world.
I love doing research, I even walk around, supermarkets and stores, reading product labels! Hence I read ingredient lists and where products are sourced.
Only recently I purchased an number of vegetarian produced made in South Africa.
Although I love pets especially dogs, but living on the corner of major roads in Leeds with little garden space. In the 50 years we have lived in the same house since we married , we have not been able to own any dogs.
How are Oscar, Tessa and newbie Tsar, they sound like super Ridgebacks?
One of the students in care that I teach, one to one, this afternoon, is in the process of producing a word processed book that she is researching on dogs.
Best Wishes for your future success.

Hi Ron - Thank you for the follow, and congratulations on becoming a Premium member. It's very interesting and helpful to learn that you had been a Starter member for more than four years. I'm in the process of writing about Starter membership and have been wondering how long people would stay at that level. I was at Starter for 1 year prior to going Premium.

I trust all is going well with Premium and look forward to catching up in the community.

Hi Valerie

Thank you for the follow - I can't believe that I never added you to my network sooner, ah well, better late than never!

I have always read your comments and some of your training over the years, but as a starter member comments are not a part of the deal so in a manner of speaking I had to keep my mouth shut - Quite frustrating at times!

Anyway, it's great to have moved over to Premium, I always knew I would do so, but the timing had to be right.

I definitely look forward to conversing in the days to come - may there be many of them.

To our continued online success

Thanks for your message. I'm feel honoured that you read some of what I published in WA during those years you were a starter member.

Good evening to you Ron, My name is Ken and I welcome you to Premium and thank you for the follow. I'm following you back!
I also joined in August 2014 but I went premium after only one week once Kyle offered the one month for $19 (I'm a sucker for a good deal). I have been here ever since. I suggest you work one website at a time; Get one website producing consistent income before starting a new one. Yes, it is possible to have multiple streams of income with an online business. Multiple streams are the best hedge against any loss of income.
I look forward to working with you and helping you any way I can. I wish you much success and satisfaction in your online journey.

Thank you for following me. I gave you a follow because of your great answer to Roy Bretton's question.

Chuck

PS. Do you see any dolphins? I watch a lot of documentaries and know that dolphins swarm around South Africa when there are millions of sardines in the ocean.
Reply
RonFrey Premium
Thanks for that - I must say I found his question a bit vague so I hope my answer helped him out - just have to wait and see if he comments on my answer

And yes, we are blessed as far as dolphin sightings go, in fact, if you are out on the backline in the early morning, either surfing, swimming or perhaps crayfishing (you guys call them crawfish if I'm not mistaken) there's a good chance that you can land up swimming with them which is a life changing experience - I have been lucky to have had contact on a number of occasions as I crayfish quite a bit.
But as far as when the sardines are running, you don't take a chance as there are too many sharks present and they can easily mistake you for a large fish as they tend to get into a bit of a feeding frenzy with so much activity and live bait in the water.

I have dived with sharks, normally ragged tooth sharks on Aliwal Shoal, in fact, I seem to recall that Aliwal has now being deemed a World Heritage site.
You can google it if you like and by the way, there is no issue with that particular breed of shark even though they look pretty formidable.
I don't fancy diving with Great whites which are found off Cape Town and surrounding areas, but then again we have had a few sighting off Kwa Zulu Natal coast which is my home ground.

Anyway great chatting but being a typical South African it's that time of the afternoon for a couple cold beers and watch some cricket - South Africa are playing Sri Lanka here in Durban

Have an awesome weekend Chuck

Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learnt to always use the search tab at the top of the desktop, the answer is usually in someone's free training. Type in topic, rather than long question.
There is an answer to just about every question, all you need to do is ask..
Aside from the Certification and Bootcamp courses, there is heaps of extra training. Check out the training classrooms as well as the live events. There are current as well as past events in here. You can find both these tabs on the left-hand side
Start playing with tabs and boxes on your dashboard, there is so much hidden information, just keep looking for it.
Enjoy Wealthy Affiliate. There are lots of people here only too happy to help you along the way with encouragement and helpful tips. Wealthy Affiliate is about training, but that is just a small part of this wonderful community. If you participate as well as train, you will gain so much more.

Hi Ron, where have you been for the last year and a bit. Hope you live in a part of SA that is not in turmoil. Our good neighbours are from Joho and we hear the news from them quite often. Love the dog. The one we knew via a friend, had a one track mind. Once he decided on a path, whether it was to eat a skunk (phew) or go over a weir to chase another dog, nothing deterred him. That perseverance is what you need here so full steam ahead for you. Keep in touch.

Hi, glad to meet me, lol.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for following me. I’m pretty impressed with WA training and I think we have found a gold mine of information. Hmmm, seems like geniuses like us tend to gather in the same place (lol).

You made a good choice coming to WA. I started making money online in 2004. WA wasn't around back then. I had to learn from scratch. What took me 2 years to accomplish online, you will be able to do in a couple of months if you are new to affiliate marketing.

The wealth of knowledge here in the tutorials and the help from fellow WA members is exceptional. I have never met a bunch of like-minded people who are so eager to help.

When I came to WA in February, I was skeptical. Seen enough online scams in my time. I searched high and low for "the catch." There was none. I learned WA is legitimate. There is no pressure to upsell me more products or services. That was refreshing.

Anyway Ron, here’s wishing you all my best for your success with online marketing. Please feel free to send me a private message if there is anything I can do for you.
You can send me a private message if you have questions by going to my profile and clicking on the private message button; https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/grampamike

You may also want to check out my WA profile blog posts as there is some interesting and informative information there.
Here’s a little inspiration: Update: I wanted to mention that all my recent posts on my website get ranked in the top 5 for my keyword or keyword phrase. So study the tutorials here at WA. They hold the clues for getting top ranking for your web pages.

Need some pictures for your website? Check out my post.

Goeie dag Ron,
A special warm South African welcome to you, and thanks for the follow.
Allow me to wish you everything of the very best for your journey here at WA.
May you be blessed with much success.
My advice to you is this :
* Take a deep breath and think things through properly
* Take it slow in the beginning and do things one step at a time.
* Dont get overwhelmed by the sheer volume of all the training available to you.
* Pay no attention to how good others seem to be or how fast they progress.... Do things at your own pace.
* When you get stuck, dont be afraid to ask questions !!
Best of luck to you and Tracy.

Thank you Ron for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. If you need any help remember to post your question in the comments section or on live chat, and someone will be able to help you.

I created a short but informative training tutorial for all New Members that tell you what you can do here at WA and most importantly give you a link to the RULES of WA and what you cannot do here. If you have the time or wish to, please check out the rest of my training (Bottom Right Blue Button) on my profile page. I explain ways to help you build a better website, ways to make some extra $$$ with your WA training, and best practices here at WA. I also post a humorous blog every Sunday. Enjoy!

Hi Ron,

Greetings from a fellow South African ("ou") as you describe it. Thank you for the follow and I'm following you back.
I am just down the drag from you in Kloof! I would like to welcome you to WA and tell you that this is the place to be if you wish to become a successful network marketer!

Upgrading to premium isn't a bad idea but learning at your own pace is also recommended! Just follow the training, ask as many questions as you need and you will be amazed at the number of WA members willing to help!
If I can be of help personally, don't be afraid to ask.
Kind regards
~Arthur

PS: if you prefer you can PM (Private Mail me)

How are things going today? Just wanted to pop in to see how things are going with you thus far and how your website/niche is coming along.

Hope you are rocking it Ron and of course (and as always) I am in your corner if you ever need anything!

PS. Today is my last day for Premium bonuses, if you are interested in getting them make sure you upgrade today.

Hey Ron,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Ron and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

Here we are, 10 days into your experience at WA. :)

I hope things are going well Ron! I want to remind you of one thing, your hard work and dedication IS going to pay off. Keep working through the training, communicating within the community, and of course, ask for help when you need it.

Just heading out for a bit here, but do leave me a message if you need a hand with anything. You should have Premium communication back for an additional 7 days now, so hit me up when you get a chance Ron!

Hey Ron, just wanted to pop back and see how you are doing.

I noticed that you haven't quite set-up your account yet, just wanted to let you know there is a video on how to do this if there is any confusion.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/completing-your-account-set-up-at-wa-adding-a-description-image

Setting up your account will lead to much better help here within the community as people feel like they can connect with you better (with an image and a description)

Best,
Frank
