About 1signbanner
Joined October 2017
I'm from Hawaii and I'm 63 years old and would like to learn a side skill. E-commerce Marketing. I am currently still working for the State of Hawaii
Dept. of Transportation. Yes, I did not prepare for retirement. It seems this maybe a fun part time job for me.

Not sure where Wealthy Afliliate will take me but this "homeless" feels like he found a home. Thanks to Brendan I stumbled upon his article about WA and whaddaah you know, I think I found a diamond in the rough.

One of the most awesome feeling I'm getting is the "people here in the know" appears to me to be sooooo humble and self-confident. Dang it WA and the founders Kyle and Carson I do believe you created a platform that to me, and like me, others have prayed for. You guys are beyond awesome. Are there words better than awesome, let me know.

This will be a journey I'm excited to pursue. I want to share a poster DomW (see my follow you will find him) shared on one of his articles. Here it is below I would hope you love it as much as I do.

"EVERYTHING IS ENERGY AND THAT'S ALL THERE IS TO IT.
MATCH THE FREQUENCY OF THE REALITY YOU WANT AND
YOU CANNOT HELP BUT GET THAT REALITY. IT CAN BE NO
OTHER WAY. THIS IS not PHILOSOPHY. THIS IS physics"

- Albert Einstein

I insertedt this poster I created for DBlanchard. He wrote a motivational post, I like it sooo much I had to put it in here. Hope you'all like it


To me this applies for me here with WA. Thank you so much for
allowing me to share my thoughts and DomW's priceless article where I found this valuable advice from Albert Einstein. Thank you Dom!

Mahalo & May God Bless You'all!

How much money would you be happy earning?
$400 a month. Why? Is that too high???

How much would you be ecstatic earning?
$500. Is that too much to ask?

And how much time are you willing to invest to achieve these goals?
I'm 63. Maybe I have another 10 more years left if God permits. Now this gets personal. lols

Hi Frank,
Thank you for the follow back and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate too, btw! It's great to meet you and I'm honored to be a part of your network here.

Wow, I just had to take a look at your caricature art....amazing work! Keep up the awesome job of it...I've never tried caricature art, but it does look like a lot of fun.

I'm sure you'll do fine here, just keep working on the training and do the tasks in each lesson...it does work! If you get stuck, just ask. I'm always happy to help when I can.

Looking forward to hearing more about your journey to success!

Best wishes :) ~Sherry

And thank you for the offer of help, I will be on a 3 week mandatory vacation accumulation leave. I will hit the books here at
WA.

My whole "being" is ready. I may if you don't mind tap into your brains for help!


Mahalo again!

You're welcome, Frank! I had to say something about it...I think your artwork is amazing! Wow, I'd be honored indeed to have you draw one for me when you get the chance...I'd have to look for a pic though first, lol. That'd be awesome!

Glad to hear you'll have some time to hit the books here too! Yup, pick my brains whenever you need to...I usually stop in here everyday at some point.

Best wishes again and have a great weekend!

Please send it I will be honored. Don't know how we
gonna do this.

How's this!

Send me a profile of you (left side please)
maybe a little of your right eye showing.( not a complete
profile)

Here's my email address. Please pick from my poster on my
website; frankuratani.com Mi

You will find it on that page. Homepage.

frank.uratani@gmail.com

When done, I'll download your drawing for your approval. I'll put the original in the mail. Just give me your address. I am sure you will love it. You can be a hula dancer #27, UFC female boxer #46, SuperGirl #42, Miss Universe #32, Mermaid #31.
Not to forget Wonderwoman #59.

Anyone of these look closely but look closely there's more. I just touched on some for you. "Your dream is my command! lols"

Mahalo Sherry, from bitter cold 65o Hawaii!

To find my poster go to my homepage; Scroll down some and
you'll see my poster. You might need to magnify it up some.

There now I got it right.

Remember I do it in under 3 minutes so by the time I get
it and if I'm on my computer you'll get it in a few minutes.

See an example #42 Supergirl.

No worries, Frank.... Will do, will do! I'll check those designs out some more on your site...wow, such cool designs, can't wait to see who I'll be once I make up my mind, lol
Oh, I'll send you a PM here once I find or get a profile picture like you mentioned...that way you know to look for it in your email. That is amazing to me how fast you are at it and still looks awesome! Oh, might take a bit to get you that picture, I'm sure I got one like that somewhere, or if I can't find it, I'll recruit my son or hubby to take one.
Thanks again, Frank! What weird weather it's been everywhere it seems, I'd thought I'd heard something just yesterday on the radio news about Hawaii having a winter weather advisory or something like that...Oh my, strange times! And, we still have no snow here, usually it's anywhere from a few inches to a foot or two by now.

Stay warm over there!
Best wishes :) ~Sherry

Sherry I have #16 if you want you and hubby together. No problem send me a pic of your son, too! I'd be honored to do him. Just tell me what he wants. No worries, on my homepage there's a poster I made/design that reads;

"I make the young cute. The adults beautiful or macho-handsome and the seniors 42 years younger! A feel good experience!"

Going into this profession I knew the dangers!

I may look stupid but I'm not crazy! I make everybody look like gorgeous or macho- movie stars. I know everyone's darkest flaws.
For example, women ( not you you have no issues.) ....ahhh
men too when I think about it, their greatest fears are their double and even quadrupal chins. I tell them I am blind, I don't see it.

Most are happy with the results. So glad I'm doing them and not me. Anyways send me up to 5 people who you want and I'll do them all. No worries about postage I'll take care of that.

Mahalo Sherry!

Btw, I was joking about the weather, I know most on the mainland
are freezin' their y'know off. I really should be counting my blessings!

Send them all it would be an honor to do your family!

Oh wow, Frank! That is so sweet of you to offer to draw hubby and me together, I noticed that #16 design...pretty cool, I love the idea! Bet my hubby will love it too!

Haha, I knew you had to be joking on the weather, LOL! But, I thought I heard about Hawaii having some icky cold weather on the news the other day though at work...unless my hearing is playing tricks on me again, ya never know what you might hear there, but at least it keeps the day interesting, lol.

That is too kind of you, Frank! Up to five people? Well, I'd have my son and daughter that I'm sure would be tickled pink on having their caricatures done too, but I'd definitely want to pay you somehow...I'll send you a PM later on today, since I guess it's almost 3 am here, I better call it a day! Plus, I'm hoping the power doesn't go out before I can turn off the computer, lol...the wind is howling out there and making the lights flicker...gotta love our winter weather!

Best wishes :) ~Sherry

Go right ahead Sherry send it I will do it. 2 things pics and address I will send it to you no charge, my honor.

Ok, ok my payment from you. Teach me the innards of creating my own website all I ask Sherry. I'm a slow learner but once learned I will only get better. That's my years of experience on this earth.

Heck, that's the only way I learn .....slowly. To much info short-circuits my braincells...not good for me. I tend to be off and hiding like I do here. It's almost 3-4 weeks now that I have not touched or go close to my lessons.

Tomorrow is my first day of 3 weeks I can focus on WA. Hopefully without too much interuptions. My wife have flooded me with assignments and chores. Y'know the kinds Dad's do around the house etc. lols....ughhh!

Anyways Sherry go ahead send it, I can fit it in and as soon as done I'll shoot it straight to you..Ohhh I'll scan it for you to look at before you get the actual originals in the mail.

Maybe don't tell your famlly, give it as a surprise gift, afterall
Christmas is right around the corner. Heck cheapest gift money can buy. lols!

Anyways take care and I'll be waiting.


Mahalo!

Wow, that is so awesome of you...haha, oh boy, still searching about for those pictures, lol...I'm finding lots of everyone else, the dogs, and all kinds of scenery, but I guess I'm hiding somewhere in them. I'll find em though, I know I seen me somewhere, lol.

That'll keep me busy for a bit yet, wish I'd have organized all the pics I have better...how I have so many on the computer is beyond me! I'll let you know soon as I gather them all, and yeah, that is an excellent idea...they'd be soooo surprised on Christmas! OH, I hope I can keep my mouth shut...almost spilled the beans earlier already!

Anyways, I'll definitely do what I can to help you out with your website...just let me know where you are in the lessons, I'll be off the next couple days, so I'll check in here more often...just give me a holler anytime in a PM, that way I'll see it first thing when I get here.

Take care and I'll be back with those soon I hope, lol!

Best wishes :) ~Sherry

First tutorial question Sherry what do you mean "PM?" Sorry like I said you're looking at a newborn baby....me lols!'

OH, sorry about that...no worries! I should have explained what I meant by PM...it means private message here and can be found on each of our profile pages next to our pics. Another way to find it or PM someone is by clicking on the little envelope icon up to the top right of your screen, it's white if you have no messages, but it'll turn red if you have an unread message.

Hope that helps, and yeah, I'll send it to your email, the one you have up there...well, I'll send you a PM to confirm the email address, so you can try it out anyways...best way to learn is to do.

I'll do that now...might take a few minutes though.

Hello Frank! I really hear the energy in your words and heart. I know you will always have exactly what you need. And how fabulous that you live in Hawaii..isn't the translation the place of the gods? So I am guessing you are truly rising to the top. I wish you a grand journey. ariel

Thank you Ariel! Sorry so late a response.

Hawaii means "Place of the gods?" Thank you I didn't know that.
I'm blushing. It took someone like you outside of my home state to
let me know that.

I guess I take Hawaii for granted. 63 years and never knew that, sorry Ariel I can never be a tour guide.

Mahalo again!

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! :)

Kyle you came at the right time. I am about to pick a domain name, here it is. What do you think Kyle. I appreciate your feedback on this. And yes I do have a niche. Here is my domain name and could you please open your opinion about this.

"iamsofatineedhelp.com"
"ihatebeingfatpleasehelp.com"

- domain name I'm thinking about or something close to it Kyle.

My niche, I want to sell food and books for losing weight.
Would this be too "general." A small bit of my history, when I was
47 years old I suffered a mild stroke. At the time my daughter was 11 years old and need a dad and my wife needs a husband.
My family Doctor told me to lose weight. He suggested the Atkins diet, similar to the caveman's diet. No carbs. From 230 lbs I came down to 165 lbs in a very few months. i am grateful and from then on I have saved many at my workplace. They are grateful and claimed I save their lives. Enough of me Kyle, anyways I have this mission to save people from the ravages of diabetes, heart disease etc., etc. Ohh and Kyle I too love basketball. I do play every Sunday full-court basketball. We a group of old 50's and 60's NBA dreamers come together to make an a//s out of ourselves.
All fun Kyle.

Thank you for allowing me to give a bit of history of why I'm driven to help people who I feel don't have an idea why they are getting fatter and fatter.

Kyle thanks for your opinions ahead.

I like your domain name choices, you could head in either direction. Maybe you want to get both just in case you want to head in another direction down the road, that is up to you.

Either way, I think you have a good handle on the direction you want to head here Frank. :)

Thanks many Kyle. Funny I was driving my wife and I to work when (before reading your email) I got an, "aAAH Haaa!" moment not sure what it is, but it was like an overwhelming kind of feeling that was a feeling of excitement, etc. I quietly got all giddy and my wife who was in the car noticed me kinda talking to myself and asked, "what the heck was that?" I told her nothing.

Y'know Kyle like I mentioned somewhere that my wife thinks I'm going thru one of those moments of "I think this is gonna make money." Kyle I'm a dreamer at heart. My wife, well, she's what I call a skeptic. Sorry to say my own daughter shares the same sentiment about her own Dad.

Anyways I won't say anything (I learned my lessons ) I can't gonna say a word about it. I just know my inner self is saying this WA is a "winnah chicken dinnah."

Thanks Kyle for allowing to share this to you.

You don't need to be a dreamer to think this is going to make money. This is a business you are creating an we teach the proper way to build an online business here at WA, and provide you with all the tools, education, support, and resources you need to do so.

If you work at this and work at your business, and get yourself adequate time to achieve success, it will happen.

Thanks for being there and for creating this program, ohh and Carson too!

Hey there, Frank!

My name is Brendan. I'm currently a premium member of Wealthy Affiliate and I've taken it upon myself to welcome you to this great community.

Congratulations for taking the first step to being financially free for life!

Your first week here will be a big one if you work hard at it and it all starts with setting up your account. It takes just a few minutes and then you'll be able to look back and see how far you've come from the goals you set. You can get a lot done in seven days, you just have to start.

If you're just getting started and don't even know what niche you want to get into then the first thing I'd recommend you check out, after a couple of the getting started lessons, is this article. That one was very helpful when I was just getting started.

I want to personally extend my hand and tell you, If you ever get stuck and need a hand you can come to me and I'll do all I can to help you.

Good luck, Frank!

Brendan
