About Skc
Joined June 2014
I am 64yrs old and nearing the end of my lifelong career as a Clinical Technologist, specialising in Cardiovascular Perfusion. (This mainly involves the operation of Heart Lung machines and related equipment, during Open Heart Surgery.)

For my eventual retirement I am looking for activities that will offer "intellectual exercise" and hopefully bring in some income as well. Exactly what I want to get into is still undecided, but I am leaning towards blogging, but not sure exactly what subject.

My interests include Spirituality, Psychology, Philosophy, Computers, Science, History, Books, Movies and Hobbies such as Wargames and Flight Simulation.

I look forward to interacting with, and learning from, all the participants on this site and getting my brain up to speed again with this rapidly changing computer world. Although I've been into computers since the old Spectrum 48k days, the speed of change seems inversely proportional to the slowing of my aging brain! Perhaps this site will help reverse that!

Great goals Shawn,

The first step to achieving success online is to set some goals and now that you have done this you can start working towards them. Your goals are absolutely achievable and realistic. Dedicate yourself to working through the training, taking action, and getting help when you need it.

I am personally here to help you and there are many others within the community that will reach out to help too.

You are already doing great, keep it up!

Carson

So far have gone through to Lesson 4 but have a whole pile of (real) work over the next few days so will have to continue Sunday. (Should be Premium by then, so much to do!)

Awesome Shawn, it sounds like you are making good progress despite your work load. I know you are going to love Premium and I really do look forward to working with you moving forward.

If you ever need a hand, just let me know. :)

Kyle,
My colleague is interested in joining and I want to email her the referral link. Can I just quickly add it to an email and which one of the 3 do I use? (I tested the main one and it just referred me back to my profile, not to any joining up page.)
So far got to lesson 8 course 1. Redid website 3 times as I wanted a different .url name and realised I couldn't change it. Anyway it's good practice.

Yes, you absolutely can Shawn. You can get all of your affiliate links from the WA Affiliate Program page Shawn:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/share

Here you will get everything from your stats, the program details and commission structure, your affiliate links, create your custom messages, get banners, and some other awesome features.

You don't get your link from your actual profile, as that is your affiliate referral link to link people directly to your profile. You want your main one which you get from your WA Affiliate Program tab (as mentioned above).

Hey Shawn, just wanted to pop back and see how you are doing? I noticed that you haven't quite set-up your account yet, just wanted to let you know there is a video on how to do this if there is any confusion.

Setting up your account will lead to much better help here within the community as people feel like they can connect with you better (with an image and a description)

Just wanted to make sure that all was good and if you do need a hand with anything, just let me know! :)

Thanks Carson. As you will now see I have updated photo and profile. One question? Must payment be on an ongoing subscription basis or can one pay once off for the occasional month? This will suit me owing to the erratic nature of my work whereby I can just pay for those months I have time to get into this. Also with our dismal R/$ exchange one has to take care!

Hey Shawn,

The payment here at Wealthy Affiliate is a monthly subscription. You can always cancel your billing, take a break, then come back at a later date. It's totally flexible and you're in control of how you want the billing to work.

Each time you setup payment it's a subscription, so it's up to you to stop it if you wish. It's all managed from your account settings here at WA, so it's easy to do.

You're going to Love Premium and it's going to open the full potential of the Wealthy Affiliate platform. You can't build and run a business anywhere else online for less. Everything is 100% included.

Cheers,

Carson

Hi Shawn,

Welcome to WA! As you are just new to the community I'd like to take this opportunity to say hello and let you know that I am here to help you get started.

I've helped 1000's of people over the years build thriving online businesses and the Wealthy Affiliate platform will provide you the tools and training to succeed as well.

Kyle, myself, and many other very helpful people hang out at WA and are always willing to lend a hand.

If you have any questions I suggest using the Live chat as you will get answers very quickly. Or you can ask questions within tutorials, blogs, or directly to other members on their Spaces.

Here is the initial training that I suggest you get started with:

I look forward to working with you.

Carson
