About Albear
Joined March 2015
Retired in 1999 after 42 years in the maritime industry and 4 years active duty I find I have a lot of free time and at age 77 still have some free time to go, but have to stay active and this is a good way to go about it. Looking forward to making some good money too. Now living in Alaska and enjoying it. Born and raised in Wisconsin but don't hold that against me cause I still root for the Green Bay Packers.

Well it's good to meet you Al. What branch of the military were you in? I was in the Marine Corp. during the Viet-Nam war. All thou, I went to four different counties. Black-Op out of Quantico. 67 to 72.

Hi Arthur, I was in the Air Force from 1954 to 1958 and enjoyed my time in England but when I got back, about a year later, I got shipped from Austin, TX (Bergstrom AFB) to Pease AFB in New Hampshire. Wasn't there but a couple months and got shipped up to Thule AFB in Greenland. Good thing it was almost spring as the temp was minus 30 when I got there. That was a long time ago and being here at WA is a lot more fun. Keep in touch, Al

Brother it's good to hear from you. Yes, I know. I was in four different countries in my military experience. One of my worse assignments was in; at the time it was still called the USSR, I had to get in the Kremlin, in Moscow, I worked with the KGB, I was a Black Op out of Quantico, so you know how that goes, after Camp Lejeune. I'm not going to say any more about that. I had to get a lot of help when I came home. Than I became a psychologist and help a lot of our Vet's because I under stud there polite. I was in Russia, and it was 25 degree's below zero in the daytime. I was there ten months. I also took a little trip down to George in the Ukrainian. Being in the position I was in W2(Warrant office). I was twenty-one years old. Know matter what I learned, war was still HELL. I'm putting it all in my book, (Where Do we Grow from Here. Thank you for listening. Dr.J

I've been stuck many times and some one on this platform always comes to the rescue. Thanks for the offer, and good luck to you two. Way back in the 1950s I was stationed at Sturgate (on the farm) AFB just outside Lincoln. Enjoyed your country except for the warm beer, but I got used to that after a while.

Hello Al, ♫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. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under training (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hi Al!

Thanks for following me. Thank you also for your service to the US armed forces. Much appreciative. You will learn so much through the WA training. Any ideas what your niche will be on? Green Bay Packer fan site perhaps?

Thanks Steph, Air Force seems like ages ago,but I still follow the latest aircraft. My niche altho not a Packer website (that would be a good one) is about fishing. flyfishinng4ever.com check it out and give me some feedback if you would please. I always read your posts and comments as they are so well thought out, thanks for that.

Hi Al:

I like fishing as well. My father got me into it when I was little. I was probably the only girl who was not too squeamish to pick up the worms and put them on the hook, I will be more than happy to provide you with some feedback. I will send it to you via a PM. :)

CONGRATULATIONS on going Premium - the best decision you could have ever made. So many resources and SO much support here, it's an awesome community to be a part of. A bit of beginner advice (given to me when I started) remember website FIRST - do your lessons follow them and you will succeed! Social - SECOND - still very important piece of our community but don't let it keep you from progressing on your website - Have fun and I wish you the best of success!!

How are things going today? Just wanted to pop in to see how things are going with you thus far and how your website/niche is coming along.

Hope you are rocking it Al and of course (and as always) I am in your corner if you ever need anything!

PS. Today is my last day for Premium bonuses, if you are interested in getting them make sure you upgrade today.

Kyle Premium
Hey Al,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Al and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

Thanks for the welcome Kyle. Have a ? for you. Why is there a big black bar on my page that takes up about 1/4 page and I can't minimize it or delete it. How can I get rid of it?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Can you reference where you are seeing this? Is this on your website? If so, what is the URL? Please let me know here Al and I will give you a hand.
Reply
albear Premium
No, not on my website but on my email page. I have all these WA people sending me emails and altho I can read the emails the bar blacks out about 1/4 of the page. The first thing I see on the left side is Progress: Course 1, Lesson 1 then Upgrade to Yearly then Keyword Lists and so on. The WA logo is in the black space along eith Need help Al? Ask your ? and my message icon and Rank then my picture with a star icon, all in the black part of the page, but no way to minimize or delete it.

I would refresh your browser, this sounds like a caching or browser issue here. If you are not using Google Chrome, I recommend you do.

This will make your life that much easier online.

Kyle, I do use Google Chrome but not as my email server. My local server for email is GCI It carries my cable, telephone computer access and email so Chrome is completely seperate. I can access WA from Chrome and get a full page but this black section only happens when I am looking at WA correspondence on email.

If possible, could you send me a screenshot of this and attach it within your comment so I can see what you are looking at. I haven't seen this before, so to escalate to our programming team it would be easiest if you could send me exactly what you are seeing. Thanks Al!

Here we are, 10 days into your experience at WA. :)

I hope things are going well Al! I want to remind you of one thing, your hard work and dedication IS going to pay off. Keep working through the training, communicating within the community, and of course, ask for help when you need it.

Just heading out for a bit here, but do leave me a message if you need a hand with anything. You should have Premium communication back for an additional 7 days now, so hit me up when you get a chance Al!

We have many retired folks here at WA that decided to move into the online space to start a business online. What I can tell you Al is that it is completely possible and you are going to be able to take any niche/interest and turn it into a full time business with some effort.

Everything you need is here to get you moving in the right direction including the support Al , so just let me know (drop me a reply) at any time. :)

PS. I hope you are having a wonderful week thus far! :)

Hey there Al and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! I am Simon, an affiliate of WA and I am here to help you along the way.

A little about me - I run a successful Internet marketing agency from my home base in Mexico and my clients are mostly in the UK. I have a staff of 7 to support our clients and we’ve been in business for over 6 years.

I use Wealthy Affiliate to spread some of my knowledge and help people like yourself get off the ground. If you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do let me know, I’ve covered almost every part of Internet marketing and selling online.

In my view Wealthy Affiliate is not only a great place to start learning in how to create an online income, but the only resource you will need. However be warned – there’s a lot of information on this site. Take a deep breath Al, this is where it gets interesting!

As a new member here, you should check out the Online Entrepreneur Certification getting started course (Level 1). This is a task based course that will get you taking action on daily tasks that will lead to you building web assets. Here is the link that you will see within your main menu labelled "Get Started Here". Here is your link to set up your 2 free Wordpress sites with full hosting -

HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUS
-----------------------------------------------

If you join Premium within the first 7 days, here are some bonuses that I am going to be giving you:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)

(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there.

(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus"

But only if you join in your first 7 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways Al, thought I would just introduce myself and if you have any questions going forward, let me know. :) Wonderful to have you as part of the community here at WA!

Your friend,

Simon

Thanks for the encouraging words Simon. Everyone makes this sound like a walk in the park to just breeze through all the tasks, but I find some othis pretty hard to navigate like as I'm progressing through the tasks, it asks about how much money I'd like to make etc, but I can't locate my response or find out where it's gone. I almost feel like I have to enter that info again and again or every time I get to that page in the tasks. How do I locate that and does anyone else see it? Thanks, Al
