About Shawn39
Joined October 2016
I was born in Scarberia, on the East side of the big city. I was an ugly baby but, was saved from a toss off the bluffs by my parents who were typically awe struck and excited to have a child. Six years later my parents were able to move out of the city approximately 60km north to "Nowhereville". My dad worked in finish construction and he bought a semi-attached for $23,000. He was making $7,000 a year in 1969.

I had a normal upbringing in a middle class home. We spent summers camping in trailer parks and here in Canada that means; park a trailer, sit around a campfire, burn some food and drink until you have to go home !
I was an only child except for my sister and in 1974 something wonderful happened. A native man who was romancing my mother behind my father's back, introduced me to the guitar and I was hooked.

Fast forward a little bit..... I finished high school, played in lots of rock bands, picked up a few more instruments, started in the martial arts, got formally educated in Biological Research and Business and started my career in the pharmaceutical research industry.

Somewhere in that last paragraph, I got married to a wonderful gal and had two very good looking babies and both still live at home.

I'm excited to be here at WA and after much research, I believe this to be a real opportunity to build a business, a lifestyle and a future for me and my family. Congratulations to everyone that has found their way here !!!!

Hey Shawn,you are like 99 member of my network.Number 9 is one of my favourites.
Your story is so pure and clear.I can see thorough you are very honest person.
I wish i have found my way to WA earlier,but life it is as it is.
Pharmaceutical research is interesting matter,some of my relatives have been working in pharmaceutical store for like 47 years.Biology was the best exam i have ever taken and i get even better result than any exam of languages that i did know.
Well,anyways it was long time ago.
Still i see how many great background people coming to WA it is astonishing,how many people want to work online and i wish you the same to you Shawn all the best.
I do live in small village of Norway,so thats the best i can do at the moment for now,who knows it might develop in something more.
The most important thing in business is positive look to things,i feel you have that.

All the best,

Shawn, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend.

I too am that kind of junkie. I get distracted and follow information until I am kilometres away from where I started.

So you are a Kawasaki nut. So is my partner. He is a rider from way back. Once I really get going here (ie stop getting bogged down) he will be getting a new one!

Work hard, have some fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Hey Shawn!

I believe you are the first "detail information junkie" I've ever met, or at least the first that openly adnitted it, lol. Finding some sort of balance may help you from gettin stuck in just gatbering the info.

I'm the "excellent notes taker", but applying what I've learned can be a challenge at times. Going through the lessons and the tasks helps me to keep that at bay.

All the best Shawn, and I look forward to hearing about your progress.

Hi Shawn,

Thank you for the follow. I am following you now as well.

Congratulations on going Premium and for the wise choice of choosing Wealthy Affiliate.

If you follow each lesson step by step, then take action on your website with what you just learned in each lesson, you will do great.

Watch out for the distraction of "shiny objects". :-)

I wish you amazing success here at WA!

Thank you for your follow, Shawn!

Congratulations on going Premium, this enables you to use the platform to your full advantage!

I think in time, you will streamline the information as you need it, happens almost naturally, when you get involved in the courses and your site.

We automatically begin to prioritize, as our plan becomes clearer, and the steps are taken.

I wish you a journey of maximum success here at WA!

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

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made 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 on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016-2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Shawn, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Shawn.

Hi again Shawn! Just checking in to see how you are getting along with the training. Don't worry about doing too much or too little - everyone works at their own pace.

Oh, and don't forget that there's another live webinar coming up this week for premium members! Jay's an awesome host, so it's worth attending at least once, just to see what they're all about.

nathaniell Premium
What's up Shawn, just wanted to see how you were doing and if you need any help. Let me know!

BTW in case you missed the message, you also get free keyword searches in Jaaxy (http://www.jaaxy.com) that can help you with finding topics to write about on your website.

If you need some help understanding Jaaxy just respond to this message and I can send a training video to you.

PS. I found a few more success stories I wanted you to see!
Shawn39 Premium
I like to see examples of success....eg Clickbank dashboard. Very encouraging.

Glad you like them. I hope they were inspiriting :)

Hey there, I just wanted to check in and see if you had any questions about what you've seen at WA so far. A lot of people get information overload in the first couple days.

The one piece of advice that helped me when I got started was that there is a huge difference in success rates between those that interact with the community and those that don't. Part of learning all this new stuff is going to require that you ask questions when you don't understand.

So, my suggestion is this.

1) Put up a profile pic

2) Write a short introduction about yourself

3) Drop in on my profile to say hello

Doing these things will help you meet people in the community and see what WA is all about. You can start learning how to build a profitable business on the internet by clicking the green "Get Started Here" button on your left. I hope you enjoy your time in Wealthy Affiliate!
