About Silkdirect
Joined June 2015
Hello Everyone, I'm 52 years old, born in Oklahoma and raised in Northern California. I have always had a certain amount of entrepreneur blood in me. I started working at the age of 12 and have not slowed down since. I like extreme sports, playing drums and international travel. Now with the internet age, I am flying high on internet marketing. Now I can work from where ever I chose to. I am currently traveling in S. E. Asia. I wish everyone here good luck in their business endeavors!

I thought i would add a couple things. I have been here 3 weeks now and have learned, had a lot of fun doing this and i can see the progress and potential grow everyday. With out the help of all of you (the community) i would not be this far along. Thank you!

We have some dry weather this year. I love northern CA also. Go down there once every 2 years or so. My best friend lives in Santa Rosa, and I used to live in SF.

Northern CA is beautiful. I especially love the Shasta area.

Don, 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 Don.

Hi Don! The polar bear pic I found somewhere. The one of me at the lake was taken by one of my girls on a family camping trip. That lake is near Seward, Alaska. There are more (and more coming) Alaska pics on my website, if you want to check them out. :)

Hi Sara, Thank you! Silkdirect.com was my import/export website in Thailand years ago. My website "manager" noticed my credit card on file was about to expire so he put an auto buy for my domain. Before I knew it…my domain was his domain. Lesson learned! Beware of site managers and pay attention to your expiration dates...LOL ;-) Best of luck here at WA. Cheers, Don

Hi Silkdirect,

I saw your query on the Live Chat about sites to look at to get an idea.

My best advice to you is to follow the Affiliate Bootcamp training on the left, black icon.

All will be explained to you in minute detail, you have 70 lessons to get all your queries answered.

Kindest Regards,

Jonicas

Thanks Jonicas…I just recently started the boot camp training but was anxious to get started on my site. I will continue my training and try to be a little more patient or should I say “cool my jets”…LOL

Jonicas Premium
Hi,

It is very important to take it slow and easy initially, make sure you pay particular attention to detail else you will have to redo the training all over again.

You need to take it slow initially to get your mind into the right frame to absorb the information being thrown at you, there is lots of it.

The other very important aspect is to TAKE ACTION straight after the training session while it is still fresh in your mind.

Take lots of notes for yourself on the material being taught, can even voice record if you wish.

Watch the videos as many times as you need before moving on (there are no limits to repeats LOL)

Remember: Slow and easy but above all CONSISTENT ACTION, every day ensure that you do something, no matter how small, towards your main object, building of your site,

This is not a sprint but rather a marathon.

Concentrate on 1 site initially and finish it! Before moving on to another site (BTW, A site is never finished, at least aim for the basic framework)

Go for it!

To Our Online Success.

Jonicas
