About TCoxen
Joined July 2016
My family and I are living in Edinburgh. We are from Cape Town, South Africa and have recently moved to Scotland with just our suitcases in hand!

It has been a very exciting adventure, which I will share with you into the future!

My experience is within the Financial Services industry - but I am excited to expand into on-line marketing.

My previous work experience:
I consult / design / train / assess and moderate bespoke and BAU learning programs and also accredited qualifications. My experience also includes apprentice / internship / vocational learnership programs including IT Systems, financial and soft-skills programs. I have consulted for international financial services organisations as well as training providers within Africa; and have assisted many previously disadvantaged ones within the community to achieve relevant qualifications.

My interests:
I love to travel! Unfortunately travel from South Africa is very expensive - especially with the weak currency of the Rand. However my wife and I have been fortunate to travel extensively abroad - and now our doors are opening even wider now that we stay within the UK! So GREAT travels ahead!

I also love to educate todays youth and those from disadvantaged backgrounds. Nothing gives me greater satisfaction than being able to share knowledge, experience and passion with those that are really thirsting for it!

I am excited to become a member of Wealth Affiliate and I look forward to learning and sharing within this vibrant community!

I look forward to your support - and comments!

Kindest regards
Terry

Thanks for the opportunity to become part of your network.with your follow. Best wishes to you here at WA and your online business success!

It has been awhile since I have been able to spend any time here at WA which is obvious from the lack of content on my websites and non-interaction with other members here. I'm sorry I was not here when you originally started to follow me, really not much to follow for a long time.
Hope you check in on every once in awhile and keep me focused..

Terry, nice to hear from you. My good friend spent years in Zimbabwe. Yes I know that isn't SA but it is close by! And she loved the area. Unfortunately she had a horse riding accident and had to come back to Australia.

Our next door neighbours are from SA. I know why they left and might assume you had the same reason. SA is very different from Scotland but I love Edinburgh. I haven't visited there for a while and must really think about returning some day.

Now I had a quick peak at your website. The cooking items look like they would fit right in here in the bush. One thing you need to do is realign all the images you have that are left aligned. Google doesn't like this (and I believe doesn't read text to the right of these images.

Work hard, have some fun and keep in touch.

Thanks for the like Terry.

Sounds like you have had an adventure getting to Scotland.

Scotland is on the Bucket List. My wife's grandfather lived just down the street from Edinburgh Castle and used to play in the court yard so it's a must see.

Welcome aboard and I'm sure with your IT background the web stuff will be easy

Hi Terry,

Lovely to meet you. My family and I moved to Ireland from the UK at the tail end of 2014. We did it with a little more than suitcases! But it still felt like a BIG declutter from our previous life was needed.

I look forward to finding out more about your story, and hope to catch up with you here in the community lots.

All the best,

Hi Terry
Thank you for the follow, I have added you to my network.

Very exciting times with a big move. How strange it must feel arriving with just a suitcase. I still remember settling back into NZ after traveling with just a backpack.

How quickly that changed once we bought a house...

Good luck here at WA, your experience should provide you a few avenues to choose with your website.

See you around.

Terry, where have you been all my life?

With the exception of WA, I've been a professional "misfit" for years......

I started out with the trade of welder, worked many years in it, then moved to my country of origin, when the recession hit.

Switzerland.
Their whole basis of schooling is completely different in structure from that of Canada, and no qualifying instances were ever able to match the two in my case, to make enough sense to them, to consider me qualified, and that applied to so many areas that I would have loved to undergo some forming and moulding in!

Of course, I was working, and the resource level left by this situation made me stay put, where I've more or less remained until now.....

And I've always thought honesty would be the best policy.....

But I guess when interviewers read about a welder with hospitality, fabrication and household management skills, they head for the hills......

Maybe you would know some tips or ideas, or someone I can talk to, all the while, I'm working on a serious endeavor in WA, which will take a bit of time....poetry and writing, hobbies of mine.....

By the way, thank you for your appearance on one of my blogs and the wonderful comment!

WA is a place with promise, there is much that can be accomplished here......

Cheers,

Therese

Good afternoon, Terry and thanks for adding me to your network, I will add you to mine as well.

With your background, I think you will see quick success, as you already seem to have a headstart in computer knowledge. I had none when I started but...thank goodness I found WA before getting involved with some other "training program". Stick to the training and you will get even better at what you already know.

And the community is awesome too. They are always ready to help so use them a lot.

All the best in your journey and I look forward to reading about your successes in the future...Wayne.

There is a famous quote from Mark Twain:

"If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first."

And that just means - do your hardest task first or at least as soon as you can in the morning. If you do this then the rest of your day is easy from there!

ANYWAY…

Hello, thanks for the follow and welcome to WA. You are definitely in the right place!

People have plenty to share and there is plenty to learn also so take your time and enjoy the experience.

I may not be in the top 200 list anymore (because I don’t socialize here much) but I do have many interesting posts on my site and some you might really like, many people do. I have over 3,000 positive comments, so take a look and get some ideas as to what you can do with your site.

Let me know if I can help you in any way

Thanks Terry for following.

I visited your web site and I find it very interesting. Now I know that only people bury their heads in the sand not ostriches. I am not as brave as you. Won't find me on an ostrich ride. Although it sounds kind of awesome. Isn't it something that they can kill a lion using their legs but will allow you to ride it? I have always felt that there is a connection between animals and humans. In other words they don't seem to mind our presence. Interesting too how some people do not feel that way about other humans. We can learn a lot from our animal friends.

Looking forward to following you back.

don't worry - if you are inquisitive you will get there.
try them out on a test site before using them on your main site
there are so many plugins that you can quickly become overloaded before you think and your site speed is compromised so investigate only the ones you think you will need and leave the others alone.

Hi again Terry it’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.

Hello Terry, ♫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. You can find them on my profile on the right, the first website link (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

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! :)

Hey Terry,

How are things today? I was just passing through your profile to say hello again.

I hope that you are enjoying your training so far here at Wealthy Affiliate.

As usual, if you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask me or anyone else that you feel comfortable with.

Most of us here within WA started out by asking a lot of questions and that has helped us in so many ways.

Have a blessed day today.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :-)

Welcome, Terry to Wealthy Affiliate!

Great to see you here! I am Jason and I look forward to helping you with any question you might have, and of course, help you to achieve success!

It´s great to see that you are ready to start. I want you to know that you have made a very wise decision to try things out here, there is no better place to be if you want to make money online and I know you will do great!

What you do to get started is very simple:

1. Set up your account.
2. Go to “get Started Here” course!

You find it within the main menu (BIG GREEN button).

Or, with this link here:
The key to success is to interact and ask a LOT of questions! I promise that you will get ANY question answered!

The training is going to be the core of your success, you will be given GREAT step-by-step instructions on what to do.

Each lesson also got an associated (easy to understand) video walk-through that is going to SHOW the EXACT process.

What does it take to succeed here? Stick with it and DON´T give up!
Put at least 6-10hour/week on this (more if you can) and things will start to fall in place very quick!

Remember to ALWAYS ask for help if there is something you are not sure of!

I have never experienced a community online that has so many friendly and helpful people, this is something that you are going to notice very quick! There are thousands of GREAT people here, you can learn from them, they are willing to help, and basically all of them has had the same questions that you have at some point, me too :o)

BONUS!!

If you decide to become more serious and go Premium, you can, of course, do that whenever you want. However if you do it within you first 7days you are going to get the "action taker" bonus, your first month for $19!

I wish you great Success Terry!

~Jason.
