Good day Orion,
I thank you for following me back. You have done very well in the past year (minus 18 days) as I read below. Congratulations on your achievements. I am working hard to get there also and I definitely know that I will succeed. I wish you the very best in all of your ventures. Have a wonderful day.

Welcome!

I too have had it with "the establishment", and I was a part of! it!

If you're creative and don't "bend" to their liking, no matter how high your numbers or your commission checks are, your given a hard time. I know, because I did it for too many years to count.

Being on your own, so to speak is scary, but there's plenty of support here.

Learn a lot, ask a lot of questions and put everything in motion as soon as you can. Be patient with yourself............sometimes things don't work the way you want them to the first time. Just relax and keep going.

I wish you much success.

My Best,

Laurel

Thanks Laurel, we are resonating on the same frequency apparently. Interesting for me to note that your name resembles my birth name so much - Laurence - its French and I changed it to Orion because I was rather tired of everyone thinking I was a man! haha!
I am enjoying my journey here very much - it's been now a year (minus 18 days) and everyday is a new adventure!

Yes the support here is incredible - and would recommend this program to anyone and everyone!

Wishing you $ucce$$ - Orion

Orion, you sound like a bright constellation! I read an article on your website and believe you are.

The article compared childhood with creating an online market. I left you a comment.

If you have time I would love it if you visited one of my websites and left a comment on a post, any one will do. The site addresses are fantasy-sci-fi-vision.com & https://workingonthewildside.com.

Keep in touch.

Thank you Helen, you are right, I did choose the name Orion because of that constellation!
I changed my name about a year ago, being French my French name (Laurence) is considered a man's name in Australia, and in just about all English speaking countries, and I am tired of people "expecting" me to be a man! haha!
So Orion is my official name!

I did see your comment thank you, and did reply =)

I will look at your website, of course, and will leave a comment too. Please be aware not to leave your site's links on WA's PM's and here too, you will be 'banned' from WA for a certain period of time (penalty).
Best to leave it in the site comment's thread or on FB's group.

Wishing 4 Your $ucce$$

Orion, if I am at risk so are thousands of others. PM are private. Links on WA posts are taboo. But so far have never heard of them being bad here! I will check this out.

Thanks for connecting with me and my network, as I will connect with you and yours. Wishing you lots of continued success, one day at a time... Clay

Hello SantaFez,
I stopped in for a second to say hi and thank you for the follow.
I wish I would have read your profile before I went back to mine this evening. I may have to get rid of about 20 lines. Lol.
It's nice to meet you and I hope that you had a very wonderful day.

I am glad you took the action to join us here at Wealthy Affiliate. Too many of us have put it off for to long.

We all have some knowledge that other people want to research to find more information about.

The more we help others get what they want, the more we get in return.

Hello Brichnow,
I see your comical yet serious approach to WA and that is nice to see.
You say that there are followers here that might bring us all down? I cannot see how there are members here who can bring us down, all I have seen from this community is support and friendliness.
Can you explain?
Thanks and looking forward to networking with you!
Cheers

Hello Orion and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined in May and have started the training you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 300+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy your day.

Hello Orion,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Welcome to WA - lots to learn here- stay focused - go through the Certification Courses first - you will get confused or frustrated from time to time - ask lots of questions - people are here to help you. 

HERE ARE 3 WA'ers Training Posts - they helped me - one is vocabulary you use here - one is a detailed use of your dashboard to find anything you will need - one is a plug-in to add to WordPress - that will help you build your sties. Hope they help - they did me This one I wrote - deals with how to "close" for the result you want. Stay with it - you don't need a wish of good luck - you need a plea to study the material and stay at it no matter what - it will change your life and hopefully the people you touch with your message.

Hello Peter, I did check out your website - excellently presented and great to know there is a place to turn to in difficult challenges. I do believe that there are many addictions out there that are not spoken of as much as alcohol and drugs and it is important to address these too.
I looked for a place to leave a comment on your site but could find one, if you do have a place please send me the link - I'd love to comment there too. :)
Good luck on your journey here too...

Thanks Orion ... Eli ... or OrionEli!
For not just the FOLLOW but the LIKE you clicked on a reply I wrote on someone else's post. I appreciate.

You joined about one month ahead of me and you have achieved soooo much already. Me? Still stuck at 1.5 learning to build a website let alone put it up! Ah well! I will slog on and try and overcome!!

Meanwhile I wish you well on your exciting journey online
Kind regards

Thank you Richard for the warm welcome. Orion & Eli - Eli is my partner (behind the scene - staunch supporter!)
Speed is not everything - especially in this field...quality is though!
Wish you good luck too and enjoy the journey! The process is more fun than the result - in my humble opinion =)
Warm regards,

Thanks to you both for the message of support & encouragement. I was kinda beating myself up for not being yet able to get thru this "building a website" point and I guess I shouldn't. My youngest son, William, staying over with me in Spain this week actually said, "Dad, I admire you - you could so easily "cheat" and skip that point and go onto the next one but you've got the discipline & integrity to stick with it until you figure it out!"

Now how's that for words of wisdom! Out of the mouths of babes & sucklings and all that. What we learn from our kids eh!

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! :)
