About ThaboN
Joined March 2016
When I was seven I almost died. I was playing at the backyard of my house in South Africa, and then I heard my grandfather tell me to stand still. Now, I had always listened to that wise man. I stood still for what seemed forever, but I learned later that it was only for a few minutes.

In any case, I waited for his permission to move. When I turned around, I saw my grandfather holding a shovel and on it was the severed head of a snake.

That was my introduction to the importance of communication.

Jump ahead years later and I am studying in America. Now, as they say, is the rest of the story.

I am a business and creative writer with an M. A. in Mass Communication from Iona College, New Rochelle, NY. I hold a B. A. in writing from Hamilton College, Clinton, NY. That said, I'm not a techie and I'll probably need help as I pursue my new endeavor with Wealthy Affiliate.

On the positive side, I literally owe my life because of good communication. I'll always be open-minded to anyone who has a constructive suggestion. I look forward to the journey. Oh Yeah, thanks granddad. I hope the angels are taking good care of you.

I saved the last words for my mother. She is a former nurse who for many years has suffered from a back injury. I have seen up close the battles that people with her condition have with living a productive and happy life. With all her pain, mom remains resilient and inspiring. She has taught me what real strength is.

One of the things I hope to do with WA is to create a website that will show people who suffer from back injury not only the ways they can live a more comfortable life, but the many ways they still have a positive impact on the people who they love and who love them.
I have also become a believer in the benefits of CBD oil. CTFO Changing the Future Outcome, I am on a mission to change pain to thriving! Ask me about CBD Oil and how life changing it is!  And if  you are

Broken down, this is going to be more than achievable for you (and then some). The internet has over 2 billion people actively search for and buying things online. All you need to do is connect with a few of these people each day to meet your initial goal!

I know with some hard work and persistence you will achieve all of your goals and then be building brand new ones. I am here to help if you ever need anything and you have an entire community rooting for your success here at WA Thabo! :)

Those are VERY achievable goals, Thabo! Starting small and working your way up in time is definitely much more likely to set you up for success than aiming to work <5 hours per week, or aiming for a massive amount of money way too quickly.

If I can help you achieve these goals in any way, please let me know! I'm happy to help however I can.

Hey Thabo, I see that you're able to communicate within the WA community again! How's everything coming along?

Hi Pribs,

I just finished lesson 9 of the starter membership. I wanted feedback on my "About Me" page, but I was informed that my link isn't live. Can't figure why this is the case. Can you help?

Thabo

You probably just haven't published the page, as long as you're interpreting the issue correctly. Send me the link and I'll take a look.

Hey Thabo, how's everything coming along now that you've been a member for a few days? I hope you've found your way into the "Get Started Here" training toward the top of the menu on the left and that you're enjoying yourself so far!

Some people gravitate towards the "Affiliate Bootcamp" training which is something I don't recommend right off of the bat if you've never made money in internet marketing before. I have a detailed blog post covering this topic if it's something you're wrestling with and you'd like me to send you the link.

I know that may be a bit confusing, but if you have any questions at all don't hesitate to ask! I hope you're enjoying your time here so far :)

It looks like you're moving along very nicely, Thabo! I see you have your profile all setup and hopefully you've been engaging with the community a bit!


I'd love to get to know you and your income goals better so that I can do my best to set you up for success. Would you mind taking a minute to chime in and share here: I keep a pretty close watch on that thread (and so do the co-founders of Wealthy Affiliate, Kyle and Carson), so posting your income goals there will give us a much better idea of what we can do to help you!


And of course, let me know if there's anything I can help you with Thabo :)

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?". lol

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 at me! :)

Hey Thabo! I wanted to start you off with a quick note that could SIGNIFICANTLY impact your success with Wealthy Affiliate. Read this entire message if you are serious about being successful in internet marketing (it's lengthy, but I'm not joking when I say that this advice could make or break your entire internet marketing career):


1) You'll need to work consistently and hard. There's going to be a lot to learn in the beginning and you may feel overwhelmed at a point, but keep pressing forward and you'll make it through. It happened to me and every other successful internet marketer at some point, and the only way to become successful in this industry is to push past that overload whenever you get there.


Do yourself a favor and commit to a number of hours that you can work each week right now. It doesn't have to be massive, but it should be more than 10 between evenings and weekends at least. Just remember the more you work each week, the faster you'll learn and draw closer to success.


After you've picked the number of hours you can work each week, commit to working that much for AT LEAST six months - a year would be better. You won't see results immediately in this industry, and being consistent is the key. Pick a number of hours you can work each week, then work those hours for at least six months. It's something you've probably never done in this industry, and this advice alone will make a HUGE difference in your chances at succeeding with internet marketing as long as you take it seriously and STICK WITH IT.


2) I recommend starting off with this training (which you can access with your free account): It just scratches the surface of the MASSIVE amount of helpful content in WA, but you'll get a good "feel" for the teaching style here and begin to see the power of all of the great things they're teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate.


3) DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE COMMUNITY. Two of the best places you can go to for help when you get stuck are the "Live Chat" and the "Classrooms" sections located on the panel to your left. You'll find direction and inspiration through the community here, which is one of the reasons I recommend WA so highly.


4) Finally, you don't ever have to upgrade to the premium account here at Wealthy Affiliate if you don't want to. You'll have limited access using your free account for as long as you wish. HOWEVER, if you're serious about internet and affiliate marketing then you should invest in the premium membership for AT LEAST one month. You could look back on it years from now and see it as a pivotal moment in your internet marketing career, but you never will if you don't at least give it a try.


Check it out for a few days though - you don't need to upgrade right now. Make sure it's a good fit for you, and if you upgrade within the first 7 days you'll receive your first month's membership at more than 50% off. I keep my membership active and recurring every month so I can be here for the people I refer like you, so realize that I'm putting my money where my mouth is here!


On top of that, if you upgrade to a premium membership at the discounted rate within the first 7 days I have a special bonus EXCLUSIVE to people that join WA through me and upgrade within the first week of creating their free account. This bonus will show you how to be twice as successful with WA or any other legitimate internet marketing program out there and gives you some very valuable video lessons (which I recorded for you personally, of course) to ensure you get off to the right step in your internet marketing business.


I keep a close watch on the list of people that upgrade from starter to premium, so I'll send the bonus your way within 24 hours. If you upgrade and don't receive it within that time frame for some reason, just post on my WA profile and let me know!


I don't offer that bonus so you'll spring for the membership and make me more money, I offer the bonus just in case you needed that tiny "push" to make sure you invest in this training because I know that you will use for the rest of your IM career and it could change your life. I've referred hundreds of people now and I have NEVER had anyone tell me they were dissatisfied.


Best of luck to you! You're about to embark on a journey that could change your life forever, so make sure you take it seriously, put in the time and effort, and expect great things in return!


You know where to find me,
Ian Pribyl


P.S. I know I've thrown A LOT of information your way in this message, but I wanted to give you one last thing. Here is a video tour of the members' area to help ensure you get the most out of your free membership as possible: http://youtu.be/NDmMcMtMB8c


Sorry for sending so much your way at once, I just want to set you up for success as much as I possibly can!
