About Roydio
Joined January 2019
I was born in Jakarta, Indonesia in 1948 during the Dutch colonial times, and lived there from 1948 to 1957. My parents and 5 children fled Indonesia in November 1957 and arrived in Rotterdam, the Netherlands in the middle of winter in November 1957. We lived and were treated like refugees, even though we were Dutch citizens living in Indonesia, and treated like minorities. My parents then decided to immigrate to USA, it took them 2 years with interrogations, interviews and a sponsorship from United Methodist Church in Oregon City, Oregon, we arrived by ship from Rotterdam to New York in November 1961. My parents and 6 children now had to travel by train to Portland, Oregon and after a week we arrived at the train station and settled in Oregon City, OR. I graduated from Oregon City High School in 1966 and went on a soccer scholarship to Lewis & Clark College. I ended up becoming a professional guitar player instead and played for many years. I had a number of small businesses, from catering, restaurants, construction to a mortgage business, and then as one of the first daytraders in 1997, I became VP of Online Trading Academy teaching thousands of others how to do live daytrading. I retired in 2000 and for 2 years did some research, volunteering at my church and after my pastor Rick Warren wrote the best seller "The Purpose Driven Life" in 2003, I started doing Purpose Driven Life seminars in Indonesia August and September 2004. On January 3, 2005 I got the call that would change our lives (my wife Louise and I) and flip it upside down. I was asked to lead tsunami relief teams and help there, so I arrived in this devastated area of Aceh province, Sumatra, in first week of January 2005, less than 2 weeks after the earthquake/tsunami took over 285,000 lives and destroyed 90+ miles of coastline. Needless to say, the worst thing I have ever experienced in my entire life, and after cleanup we started rebuilding and reconstruction of the area. My wife Louise joined me 6 months later, and when my contract with the church ended a year later, we started a small handbag factory and training center with 12 women, all tsunami survivors. My wife started with $ 200 and a home party with 20 of her friends, and so Laga Handbags was started August 2006. Today we have over 400 making these beautiful handmade handbags and accessories and we give all of our profits back to helping more.

Those are some amazing goals Roy! Anything is possible with online marketing, because it's a scalable business. Just keep in mind that to reach those goals, you need to start with small steps.

Even something small like getting your website set up is a step in the right direction. From there you can build to your first dollar, then to a small income, then beyond!

It may take a couple years to reach where you want to be, so don't be discouraged if it doesn't happen right away. But it totally can become a reality if you work hard and stay engaged in the community.

Hope to hear from you soon Roy!

Reaching your goals, big or small, doesn't happen overnight, so remember that your time commitment isn't a promise to us, it is a promise to yourself.

So awesome Roy, I know from experience that goals are what lead us to success. Work relentlessly in pursuit of these goals and they CAN and WILL happen.

In fact, wipe failure out of your mind right now. It simply won't happen. You have too much help, support and an entire community of help behind you to ever let that happen :)

If you need anything going forward, just let me known and I will be happy to give you a hand.

Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learned 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.
cheers

Thank you RoseAnn, I just started a new website, pretty familiar with WordPress since we have had our main website for almost 13 years. I had a web developer do that site and maintain it. Just wanted to learn to do it all myself. I appreciate any help and am definitely going through all the training as soon as possible.
