About 6packJim
Joined November 2013
Hi, my name is Jim. I was an IT (Information Technology) Consultant for the last 15 years before "retiring" near the end of 2012.

I live in Central Florida with my wife and two 7 year old boys. We adopted both boys when they were infants.

Since the Boys were going to keep getting bigger and stronger, and I was going to keep getting older, I had to come up with a system to keep me strong and fit so I could stay up with them.

The system I developed (everything can be done at home) worked so well that I wrote a book about it in 2012, right after I turned 60.

The book has been selling on Amazon and is called "6 Pack After 60". Different people from all over the world have bought the Kindle edition which totally amazed me. Because of this experience, I decided to learn how to set up online businesses which I plan to leave to my sons. Also I started writing 3 other books which I hope to publish next year.

It's pretty awesome to have sold something you created, isn't it? I hope one day to develop a valuable system or product that I can also sell to others.

Thanks for sharing your story :)

Currently I'm writing 3 more books, simultaneously. The plan is to publish all by this September.

Actually Mark, the book is not about getting a 6 pack but about how to get strong and stay strong in the most effective and simple way possible, at home. I just happened to get a 6 pack by accident, so I thought that would make a good title.

I just previewed your book at amazon. How long does it take to see results once you begin the system? I always wanted a six pack!
Reply

You will see and feel results after the first 30 days. Send me a PM after you finish reading the book and I'll help you get started. I'm reducing the price of the book (kindle version, not paperback version) to less than $3.00, so it will be affordable to everyone.

Hi Jim... Thanx for the follow.

I admire your spirit and energy to raise 2 young boys. I understand where you're coming from when you talk about keeping up with them. I have two daughters who have adopted children in the past 2 years. As a grandmother, who now is re-learning how to run gramma run. I need to read your book!

Wishing you much success here at WA... have a great day : )

6packJim Premium
Thanks Shar, as you probably know, having strength and energy is very important as we age. My book will help you if you apply the system I created. It's really very simple but extremely effective. I haven't told anyone this yet, but I will be writing a sequel to that book this Spring. It will be called "Six Pack After 62." I learned a few things in the last 2 years.

Hello Mahevash, thank you for your kind comments. I looked at your site. I really like the domain name you picked out, very clever. I know you're probably not completely finished with your site yet (I have a long way to go on mine also), but what I would recommend is more images. People love pictures. Also pictures are more personal, especially if they are of you, your family, your pets, etc. Remember, you are trying to build relationships. As I mentioned, my site is not complete yet, but check it out to get some ideas: www.AutomatedStreamsOfIncome.com.

Saw a comment on another thread and came over to your page on WA

Love that you wrote your book and got it on Amazon and have gotten such good response. I think you'll do well here from what you learn.

You might be interested in looking at http://authormarketingclub.com also -- they take writers under their wing and do promos, etc.

Well all the best to you in 2014 & I'll try to keep up with your developments!

At the time we just have enough for those who pre-paid with clubs. There are quite a few people screaming at us. I sort of miss it -- we used to ship out most every Monday and then fill in any on-demand orders thru the week if necessary.
