About RussStewart
Joined March 2014
Originally from the UK, my wife Noeline & I have lived in Brisbane Australia for over 35 years. We have four boys, aged 20, 24 & twins 32. We both retired from work last year.

Like most families, we had some tough times financially but as the children grew up we were able to save a bit towards a semi-retirement.

Noeline had some health challenges and the intense pressure in my management role at work was killing me.

Knowing that our savings would last a limited time I determined that after the pressure of Corporate life I just had to scale up what online stuff I had started from home and that I would hopefully have it up and running before we ran out of money.

I built my first website in 2012 but it took me months of pulling my hair out. Nevertheless, I've was able to generate a modest income online although not as consistent as I would have liked. It was a either up or down but it gave me confidence to push on.

I'd been able to earn a six figure income from home years back with an MLM company but they went belly up. Life goes on...I was attracted more to learning the affiliate marketing model anyway.

Fast Forward: I decided to really get my teeth into some solid online training being somewhat distracted by a ton of false promises and over hyped deals that's on offer. I'd been in quite a few and although I made some money the pitches and promises made me sick.

With the constant BS online I put together some rules that I live by when investigating any affiliate opportunity online and they have served me so well.

In doing further research online I came across the website of 'Nathaniell' (my referer) and it made a lot of sense to me. Nathaniell tell's it like it is and I could identify with his story and his ethical stance with the business of online marketing.

I did my research, gave WA my due diligence and it came out on top.

I've found WA to be the genuine answer to the online goals I have. No BS, great people and terrific support.

I paid the annual premium membership a few days after joining and in reality it would be the best ever investment I have made online.

Having said that, I am looking forward to learning and growing within the group and interacting with other like minded people.

Cheers........Russ Stewart

Thanks for adding me, Russ. I look forward to following your progress and seeing more of you around the community. I like your website. I've bookmarked it to read more of your interesting articles. Well done.

I see we are using the same theme.

Ryan is releasing Flexsqueeze v 2.0 responsive theme. It's been a long time coming. Will you be switching to it? ~Jude
Reply
RussStewart Premium
Thanks Jude,

I did use Flexsqueeze last year and with it not being responsive I went away from it. In fact I closed the site down while re grouping you might say.

The one I have now is F2, the latest. I only just transferred from the Catch box theme. It was a fairly easy to do, but I had to play around with the settings/fonts and layout a bit.

I must say it's a breath of fresh air. You've probably seen the video. Ryan has kept this a $49 and I just can't believe how inexpensive it is for what he offers.

I just have to get my subscription widget organised again but I decided not to get too carried away with a customised header as yet until I get the theme tweaked.

Looking forward to following your journey Jude, I love your website by the way!

Cheers Russ

judebanks Premium
That's great, Russ. I shall upgrade to the responsive theme too in due course.

Thanks for your feedback. I like your header just the way it is

With responsive headers I understand you have to upload 3 different sizes to accommodate different devices. I agree, I think I'll leave it as it is, it will help the page load faster anyway.

Hi Russ and welcome. I really get motivated when I hear a before and now story and yours is noteworthy. Your site is commendable, I especially liked your post, "Express Yourself Online" as you dig into some common situations that many aren't aware of going on. I could read your stuff all day long, always well put and very readable in my humble opinion. Nice job!

Thanks Cappuccino,

I wasn't trying to be hard just straight.

We have people on this forum, people like single Mums with severe disabilities trying to raise 3 kids and they just get on with it.

It annoys me when people are seeking pity instead of simply getting out there and earning a dollar.

We've all had hard times, I could write a book on the subject but it's the same wind that blows on us all.

We have to pray for a stronger back not a lighter burden.

Hi Russ,
I had a good look at your site and it's very slick and appealing.
I particularly like your own video of "How to create your own header", it's very professional. In fact I'm going to use it to create a new header for my own site.
I think you have a gift for creating videos and perhaps you should create many more and add them to your site to build your brand.
I also like the term "smart", you might consider playing more on this term by renaming you page tabs "smart money", "smart startup", "smart reviews" etc.

Great site, hope this helps

Hi Russ.
I welcome you to WA and our community, I don't think you will find a better place than this to Learn about Online businesses, absolutely no BS, no Upsells, no glittering prizes or instant money on Autopilot , just good Honest no Hype training its hard work here, but if you follow all the training and take positive action you will be successful, the value for money is unsurpassed by anything you can find on the internet. Like you I went through the internet mill at the end dropping myself into the BS of Empower Network but it didn't take long for me to sus their little game out, the usual things plenty of promises but no results.
So when I was researching another business opportunity I came across WA and it was obviously the most Genuine offer on the internet so I tried the 7 day test drive and within two days I knew I had found my new home , I upgraded to premium a few days later and here I am Been here over three months and happy as a P in S, Very much involved in this awesome community and the training offered have done the Affiliate boot camp now on phase two.
Started getting referrals in february in March and April I have had 23 referrals to date but so far no upgrades to premium I keep working on my web site <Twofreewebsitebonus.siterubix.com>.
Anyway welcome to you Russ and thank you for the follow, if you are going to make it anywhere it will be here, its hard work but worth it. Follow all the step by step training and get involved in the community and you will have success.
I will follow you now and watch your progress with great interest .

I'm really not that experienced online as such, I built one website last year (took me months and nearly sucked the will to live from my very soul) but I did get there and earn an income, albeit up and down.
The site I've just built here is my second. I love graphics and try to link them with my story. I visit Pond 5 for them. I also create little buttons in 'keynote' and link them where-ever on the page.

I have been around the traps as you might say but WA is an incredible platform. I would have been years ahead if I would have found this place earlier, but hey, I'm just thankful we are all here - now!

Hi Russ.

Thanks for stopping by my page and leaving your "like" :-) ...
Tempted me to come stop by yours and ... I'm moved by the autobiographical information you wrote above. You have a lovely family. Looks like a "football-sala" team all on its own!! ...

I look forward to reading about and sharing in your progress as you work toward your personal and family sovereignty goals; it's a beautiful dream to fight for.

Like me, I see you don't yet have any websites added. Do you have a niche in mind? A domain purchased? A wordpress theme chosen? These are the steps I've been honing in on just this afternoon (1 April 2014). ... Keep me posted. While I'm too new to provide any training, I will be happy to make relevant and supportive commentary when appropriate.

Also... I just came across the following link (part of Course 1, Lesson 2 in the Get Started Here section, left side bar). It seems quite pertinent.

Cheers!

Emme,
I have a site already up, one that I built last year (my first) but I am not showing it here, in fact I am closing it down. I did earn an income from it but it was based more on direct marketing training etc.
I've just registered a domain to promote the affiliate side of WA, I am working on the content right now.
The domain is 'streetsmartaffiliate.com', not ready as yet. I'll let you know when it's up and running. Also I want to build another 'niche' site this month as my goal of 2 sites by month end will happen.
It's really the content that matters with an authority site, to keep people coming back etc so I'm excited about getting quality content as opposed to just a 'fancy' looking site.
Oh yes, I saw that link you suggested - very interesting, good info'.
Anyway, must get into some work (been up since 4.30am to watch Man-u V Bayern Munich 1 -1))
Catch up soon........once again, looking forward to seeing your progress!

Hi there Russell, thanks for the follow. I'm a fellow Pom living here in South Australia born in India in the days of the Raj!! I have just started today and am trying to get my head around all this. Looks good and clean and honest compared to all the other stuff I have lost (invested) my money in. Onwards and upwards. Good luck to you. When we have achieved our goals we can meet halfway and have a beer (or 2) and a yarn. All the best.

Thanks 'Cubadane'. Appreciate your message. We've all torn up a bit of cash along the way but in some respects that is what has brought us here. At least we are still in the game and looking for a better way. There are many out there that seem to offer a 'short-cut' as it were but at the end of the day, as you know - we all have to serve an 'apprenticeship' of some sort in what ever endeavor we undertake. I'm looking forward to learning and growing and also watching your progress............must keep in touch! Cheers......Russ

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Russell!

I hope that you are enjoying your first day here within the community and have had a chance to poke around and see what we have to offer. As you get started I'd like to suggest working through the "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)" course as it will give you a very solid understanding of how Internet marketing works and how you can leverage the Internet to earn revenue.

This training is on your Dashboard and can be found in the main menu:

I am here to help at each step of the way so please do not hesitate to ask for anything :)

Hi Russell, Nathaniell here. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started.

Before you start making money, there are just two things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. Watch this video here to learn how to maximize your community reach in WA https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/completing-your-account-set-up-at-wa-adding-a-description-image

More buddies means more support. More support means more success.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button or just click this link https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1/getting-rolling. Remember that you can ask any questions you want in live chat, on your personal blog, or in the Getting Started Classroom here https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started

And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/nathaniell or by private message if you are a premium member.


★ ★ ★ How To Access Your Exclusive Bonuses ★ ★ ★

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership. Twenty bucks for you first month of WA is an absolute steal. This is available to all members. But I've lined up some other things which are a bit more exclusive.


☆ ☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 3 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 3-Part-Series Live Case Study webinar. It's video series where a professional internet marketer creates a complete 'niche website'. All steps are included and thoroughly explained. Total length of the videos is about 3 hours.

This will give you a broad overview of the type of site you will create on Wealthy Affiliate. I think it's always a good idea to know the direction you are headed before you start your journey.


☆ ☆ Bonus #2: Exclusive Look at The Top 5 Newbie Mistakes And How To Fix Them

Some questions get asked over and over again. It's very likely you have these same questions.

This is a two-part bonus. It includes an exclusive video not available to other WA members where I create a website EXACTLY how the training teaches you. Many new members don't follow the instructions properly and can't get their sites to work. Watch this video first, and you'll be up and running in 20 minutes with your own .com hosted here on WA.

I have also included 5 newbie website design and setup tips. These are super easy ways to turn your site from a basic Wordpress install into a streamlined canvas ready for action, and ready to impress your traffic.

This means you will be able to bypass these typical mistakes, get started faster, and on the right foot. This is an exciting time - you are building the foundations of a profitable online business, and I want to help you get started as quickly and smoothly as possible.
