Twacks Way-Building a Foundation is about me trying to get everything in place now, for the future. Put me in a room, sit me in a chair and say… “So Twack, what are your plans ? Visions ? Goals ?” Oh my word, you’ve just committed yourself to an endless stream of thoughts that are going to be non-stop for the next gazillion hours. It could also be about ‘The Twack Foundation’…Ummm, that’s for another day.
I have so many ideas and plans for Twack that sometimes I really don’t know where to start. There’s a spattering of information here already, to give you and idea of what Twack is about…it really is only the tip of the iceberg.
A New Start
So as you may already have read and if not you can here. Twacks WAy-forward. Twack had been sat around, dormant for a number of years. No excuses, I just hadn’t found a way to ‘pull my finger out’ and do something. There was always too much to do and other things taking my time. It was always on my mind but never enough to sit down and say…” Right, let’s do this” Obviously this has now changed and chiefly due to my involvement with Wealthy Affiliate.
Once I realised how many opportunities were being afforded to me, I knew now was the time to pick Twack up and do something with it. That being said I was wary of going off ‘Half-cocked’ as the saying goes. I needed to build with care and due diligence. I now have the tools necessary to be able to create a legacy that will just continue to grow and expand exponentially.
Twack is not some ‘Flash in the Pan’…Did I mention that I like cliches and analogies ? I think I probably did…and I do. Twack is here to stay and will require some very solid foundations to be able to fulfill it’s potential.
Learn As You Go.
Only a very short time ago, you could have put all of my ‘Internet’ knowledge onto the back of your hand… It was next to nothing. I used the internet but did not understand it. I’m sure that can be said for most of us. I had no need to. Since joining Wealthy Affiliate, the blindfold had been removed. I had no idea how complicated it all was. Any of us can find a platform or site that will allow us to create a website, for sure. Then what ?
No really ? Then what ? You sit back and wait for everyone to start queuing up to visit your pages ? Chance would be a fine thing. You have to get people to your site and then keep them there. Let’s face it, those two things right there are hugely complicated and rely on many other factors as well. Too many to go into here.
So I had a bit of a steep learning curve going on for certain. I had, had the good fortune to stumble upon a Platform that would enable me to learn all about creating a website, from the inside out.
So luck or fate or whatever you want to call it had bought me to Wealthy Affiliate, a platform designed to help you earn an income online. I know, I know, you’ve heard it all before…. So had I…so believe me when I say that I went into it with my eyes wide open. Long story short and one you can read about on my other sites, I joined up and began to realise that I had found the ‘real deal’ As they say, when opportunity knocks….open the door, silly
I had made a conscious choice, at the beginning of the year, to have a change of direction in regard to what I did for a living. I wanted to move back into ‘refurbishing computers’ I had done it before and thoroughly enjoyed it. Plus it worked with being able to ‘give back’. You’d be surprised, or maybe not, how many of us pay over the odds for computers. Less is more in my opinion…you just don’t need all the bells and whistles…could I use any more cliches ?
Anyway, I’m starting to waffle, let’s get back on track… I wanted to go back into to computers but ended up joining Wealthy Affiliate…they are an online ‘University’ type platform…close enough. It wasn’t computer refurbs but I wasn’t about to disregard what looked like a phenomenal opportunity either.
Twack Hitched a Ride.
I really didn’t want his post to start sounding like a promotional write-up but so far it’s been hard not to. Flannel aside then. I now had the chance to learn how to set up websites properly…tried and tested formulas, knowledgeable and experienced community support, ‘tools’ and the resources to make it all work..there, short and simple.
So while I was ‘cutting my teeth’ so to speak, it made sense to divert some of my efforts and learning into Twack…Once that penny had dropped, I was on it.
The Twack domain was sat on another hosting site…gathering dust and not much else. I quickly and seamlessly moved it across to the Wealthy Affiliate Hosting Facility. This was made very simple for me. Once I had it under the one roof I was free to work on it any time I liked. I liked. I used my new-found knowledge to revamp…well, it was more like a complete ‘do-over’…I started with just the name, nothing else.
Most definitely a work in progress but that’s OK. It will continue to grow and grow properly with no corners cut or half measures taken. As I continue to work on my other sites, I will use the experience to keep improving Twack. Rather that way round than use Twack for the learning. The other sites can be the ‘testers’ or ‘Betas’ It really is a win win situation.
Hand In Hand.
Now the hard work begins. Like I said at the beginning, I have many plans in my head for how I want Twack to grow. There is so much to do but it all has to be done methodically. Small steps. Acorns into oak trees etc etc. I need to get Twack ‘Out There’…a presence. We also need to have integrity. Twack is based on some very solid core beliefs and I’m not about to jeopardise those by rushing into anything.
I am going to learn my craft, as it were, applying those new-found skills to Twack. It may take a while longer but it will be worth in the long run.
One of the key lessons I have learned is the importance of creating quality for you. I may ramble on a bit and sometimes I find myself falling asleep as I write, so goodness knows how hard it must be for you, all the while I am trying to create something that is like no other. So if I wander off of some weird tangent…and tangentology is another one of my specialties..you’ll have to forgive me.
To help Twack evolve, I need to learn how to do all this internet stuff properly and believe me, there is a lot to learn. Doing what I am with my other sites will enable me to continue on a better road with Twack.
Twack is and always will be about giving, kindness and helping. To start with, that will come from awareness and mindset. In the future we will be able to create and sustain many different facets in the hope of building a better world in which we live. I hope you’ll stay with me on this journey.
If you’d like to leave a comment or you have a question, please feel free to do so below. I’ll always answer. If you fancy a look at my other site, again a reminder that it is a work in progress, then you are more than welcome to do so.
As always, be well.

I landed upon your site and I have stayed here reading your posts because you have an honest approach. I have been reading a few of them and enjoy the conversational tone.
Reading about your experience finding Wealthy Affiliate is interesting. I had read other post about this platform before but none talked about it as you have here. Thank you!
You’re very welcome Henry and I’m pleased that you found the time to have a gander through my posts. I hope that everyone finds find writing nothing if not honest. Always the best policy, as they say.
Well I’ve also been trying to break into the blogging world over the last couple of years, but like you, I seem to hit a barricade every time I try and get anywhere with web design.
I clicked the link you have for that Wealthy Affiliate platform and I have to say it looks like a really good fit for me. The one thing I am worried about is how difficult it is to create websites with them – will the support aid you in building up your first blog?
Hi Chris, thanks for the comment. Sometimes you just have to a ‘Leap of Faith’ as the saying goes. Easy for me to say , I know, it was what I did though. The free starter membership gives you the opportunity to have a really good look at all that is available. As far as the website is concerned, I really think you’d be hard pushed to find anywhere that does it easier or quicker. Find a theme you like and within about a minute it’s set up and ready for you to add your content. The training takes you through every step in a straight forward, easy manner. If you ever get stuck, ask the community and you’ll get all the support you need. Tried, tested and true.
Thank you for your article about Twacks WAy-Building A Foundation. Yes, I have joined the wealthy affiliate platform in last month as a premium member. It is an amazing platform for learning and earning. It feels good to read your inspirational article. The people here in the wealthy affiliate platform are very helpful, supportive and responsive where I can get 24/7 support. Hope I can make the best out of this site. Wish you the best.
Hi Fahim, it’s great that you’ve joined Wealthy Affiliate. “Learning and Earning” is a great tagline. You are so right in that the support is 24/7, so no matter where you are in the world, there is always someone there to help. It really is one of a kind.
As they say, well begun is half done. Beginning a project well makes it easier to do the rest.; Once you have begun a project well, you do not need to put in much more effort to finish it.
As you probably said, there is no end to knowledge and one cannot wait to acquire knowledge fully before taking the plunge. A good way of learning is learning on the job. They say if you want to learn swimming, jump into the water first!
And Wealthy Affiliates is a very good community to learn and unlearn!
Wish you all the best for your future endeavors.
Thank you for your wishes, always greatly welcomed. I love your quote “Well begun is half done” How true is that. As I sit here now, replying, I have an article half written. It took me a couple of weeks to get round to starting it but when I did, it was well worth it. There is alway something new to learn and we can always improve.
That syndrome, when you have so much to do yet nothing gets done. Like myself, I’ve got so many things to do to get my foundation up for a strong future. And like you, sometimes I do not know where to start.
But I think its time to get everything on a plan and check the list off, one by one. I’ve also signed up for Wealthy Affiliate and the foundation there is solid.
Thank you for sharing your Twak progress, we shall be doing this internet stuff with you and seeing how the journey progresses, knowing that the end result is pure success.
Wishing you all the best with Twak.
That’s great advice. I do like lists, especially ones where I can perpetually tick things off. I find that sometimes there is a common item that transfers from one list to the next. I might have to address that. The road may be long and hard at times, ultimately it will lead to success providing we never stop moving forward.
