About Tbowyer
Joined February 2019
Hi, I'm Tayo.

Currently, I work as a software developer contractor (or as it is better characterised, the unwilling led by the unknowing, doing the impossible for the ungrateful).

I have a degree in Engineering, a post-graduate diploma in Education, and a Microsoft Professional Certification in Desktop Development.

Nowadays I am interested in politics, the philosophy of science, and reincarnation studies.

I was born in Nigeria, but brought up in that country and in England pretty much equally.

Hi Jon and Debbie.

Well, a two-fer; that's a first for sure. 😊

"Thanks for the follow"
Likewise, I'm sure.

"We look forward to reading your success"
Well, I wouldn't mind a bit of that myself, to be honest. 😉😊🤦

"If you need any help please feel free to ask"
What a lovely offer. I'll be certain to take you up on it when the need arises. In the same vein, please feel free to PM with anything if you think I can be of assistance.

I'm sure we'll run into one another out and about the WA, until then, I offer you both best wishes for your success.

Hi Paul.

"Thank you also, for inviting me to be a part of your network"
Not at all, it's great to meet you.

I noticed that you've been a member for a while, so I went to your profile to visit your website, but I didn't see your "Follow on" section? Pray tell, what is your website? I do enjoy visiting members' websites and seeing how they've implemented lessons. It would be fine to visit yours too.

Anyway, best wishes for your success, from the UK.

Hi again, Tayo.

I will have my site listed on my profile here shortly. I am taking a slightly different approach.

I have been on Phase 2 Lesson 7/8 of bootcamp for over six months now. Once I feel confident...the rest will be quite easy to complete.

I am branding and have a long term plan.

Just google my name if you want to know what I am up to.

Kindest regards from Canada.

Paul Mindra.

I did just that, Paul.

Sorry to read about your health problems. I do hope that you are on the mend now, or at least, have found a way to be comfortable.

I look forward to revisiting your website when it is completed, although it looks pretty good to me already. 😊

You're welcome any time, but I warn you, it's a super tiny niche.

Hello Tayo. Nice meeting you. Thanks for following me back. Best wishes for your online success.

That's interesting. When I was a child, my church's minister went to Nigeria as a missionary. They helped found the Ekkklesiyar Yan'uwa a Nigeria.There is a nice article about it in this month's "Messenger", the Church of the Brethren's monthly magazine.

Hello Carol.

Following back: no probs. Looking forward to enjoying your work.

Ah, so they in Northern Nigeria, obviously. Interesting. Wouldn't it be one heck of a coincidence if they worked in a town called Zaria? Chortle.

Thank you for your kind wishes, I wish us *both* online success and happiness in our ventures.

Thanks, Tayo. It would certainly be a coincidence. I don't know the name of the town, but it where some of our girls who were kidnapped from the Bible school, and I think some of our ministers were killed or taken by terrorists. I'm sure you are familiar with that scenario that happened a few years ago.

Hi Tayo, I know you are quietly working on your training, hope all is going well. I just had a thought about toastmasters. If you become proactive and a valued member there, you will be able to share your WA website to your networks there and also, as I have done use WA as topics for some of my speeches. Just a thought. When I had just created my website's first few contents and needed a few comments and traffic to get Google's attention, I asked members at Toastmasters to visit and evaluate it for me. Later you might get some sign ups too 😁

That's all I wanted to say and may you enjoy building your site...:)

Hi Saane.

Great ideas about melding both spheres, Toastmasters and WA, thank you, I will adopt them.
=y <— means thumbs up (I'm tired of writing "thumbs up")


I think I've got past the enjoyment stage of website building and now it's a bit of a slog to get the site looking the way I want. Then there are the lessons, then there is the small matter of creating content... busy, busy, busy as a bee. 😁

Have a great, successful week.

Congratulations🎉 and Welcome to WA Premium!

You made the perfect decision when you decided to go premium. I had no regrets when I made mine.

The training on this platform is magnificent and you should follow it to the letter.

The community here is the very best I have personally encountered and believe me, I have tried a few in my days.

I hope to bump into you along your path and looking forward to networking with you!

Once again, Welcome Aboard, Here’s to your success 🥂 !!

Hi Centra (if I may call you that?)

Thank you for your warm welcome and kind words of advice.

Yes, I am getting stuck in, there's *so* much to do!

My websites are coming along nicely, but now I need to concentrate on getting some actual content into them, which is not as easy as it sounds. It is time-consuming to create great content.
:=(

Anyway, yep, you're right; I'm sure we'll bump into each other on WA.

Here's to both our success.

Hello Glenn.

Yes, I am pleased to be a member of WA as I've had an instructive and pleasant experience thus far.

I certainly do intend to keep the old snout to the grindstone; I would *really* like this to succeed. Along with almost everyone else here seemingly, I too am completely fed up with the 9-5, led-by-morons daily grind. If there is going to be a moron in a leadership role—let it be me! (Lolz. ;=P)

Thank you for your kind offer of assistance. I will certainly take you up on it as and when required.

Cheers,

Hi Ilaisaane.

Wow, what an unusual—yet, pretty—name! Can you tell me more about it?

Also, wow, what a coincidence! I too am a Toastmaster, in fact I joined up the past January. I am giving my icebreaker speech first meeting next month, so... fingers crossed. :=)

Thank you very much for your kind wishes. I see from your splendid ranking that you are already achieving high success, so I can only say that I hope to emulate your achievements one day too. (thumbs up)

Hello,

haha, my name is Tongan (have no idea what it means - and no-one else does either, so, in fact it is unusual), named after my paternal grandmother.

Wow! that is awesome, I have only been in Toastmasters for two years and am currently the VPEd for our club. Oh, I am sure that you will do very well, I like icebreakers - they are the fun speeches.

As long as you speak from the heart you will do fine.

You may be surprised to know that my rankings are just from being involved in this community, and completing my training, nothing extraordinary, although I would have to say, Toastmaster skills do give you an upper hand when writing engaging blogs/posts/quality site content. Speaking structure is very much like content writing.

If you utilise those skills plus everything else you know, you will probably outrank me in no - time :)

Let me know, if you ever need a hand with anything (I cannot promise to know it all, but will do my best to guide you to the right source).

Looking forward to more connections and to cheer you on your many milestones :)

Saane (for short, hence the Snazzy)

Saane.

Even prettier. :=) I’m assuming that it’s pronounced, Sa-anne?

I attended my first Toastmasters meeting just to get out of the house. Surprised by the warmth of the welcome I received, and the dedication with which I was gently ‘nudged’ to contribute a speech, I got up and answered a table question. (smile)

It has already been an amazing journey. A fellow I started with, who used to shake visibly, now can get up and address the group with barely any signs of nervousness. I am getting to grips with being a Grunt Counter (in the States, I think they’re called ‘Ah Counters’).

So, when considering WA, I seem to have stumbled upon two great groups of people. Huzzah!

“... you will probably outrank me in no - time”. Lolz. That’s a nice thing to say, but I’m not holding my breath. (chortle)

Why on earth aren't there emojis in WA?

Anyway, have a great day.

Tayo

So cool, to chat with someone who knows about Toastmasters. It really is a great movement (for the lack of a better word) to join.

I have had a few curious questions from a lot of our WA members, and I couldn't really do justice to Toastmasters with my replies.
One simply has to be part of it to understand it.

Very much like WA. People see my facebook page and get curious just by the mention of 'Wealth' in the name and then after explaining how wonderful it is, they get disinterested.

I agree, they should have emojis here - with the addition of a few more like: 'frustrated', 'brain on fire or blocked' 'peace' etc.

You have a great day also,

Nearly forgot to add: your pronunciation of my name is correct :)

Hi Saane.

(As far as I can make out, it's the name of a Tongan tribe?)

"... they should have emojis here ... like: 'frustrated', 'brain on fire or blocked' 'peace' " 😊

I've copied an emoji over from my phone—does it render properly on your device?

Toastmasters: yep, it's a hidden gem. However, as you've discovered, you can lead horses to water but you can't make camels fly!

Hi Joe.

Yes, even if it's only learning how to create a good-looking website and manage it properly, it'll have been worth it. So I've got a lot of work to do before the month's out and I either keep up with a paid membership or revert to the freebie.

I'm just going steadily, and I'll see where it takes me.

Thank you for your kind wishes, and may I return the same to you. (thumbs up)

Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learnt to always use the search tab at the top of the desktop, the answer is usually in someone's free training. Type in topic, rather than long question.
There is an answer to just about every question, all you need to do is ask..
Aside from the Certification and Bootcamp courses, there is heaps of extra training. Check out the training classrooms as well as the live events. There are current as well as past events in here. You can find both these tabs on the left-hand side
Start playing with tabs and boxes on your dashboard, there is so much hidden information, just keep looking for it.
Enjoy Wealthy Affiliate. There are lots of people here only too happy to help you along the way with encouragement and helpful tips. Wealthy Affiliate is about training, but that is just a small part of this wonderful community. If you participate as well as train, you will gain so much more.
cheers
