Hello; my name is Alfredo or Alfred. I'm 70 years old, and I've been retired for 8 years. I'm a father of 2 boys and I just became a grandfather for the first time on November 19th of last year(2018). My wife will be retiring at the end of this year God willing. I was a computer programmer for 38 years, all of my experiences were in batch processing, I never got to do any work internet related so I'm really excited about this opportunity.
I'm looking to build a sustainable income in the internet world.

Hi Alfred,

Thanks for following me and joining my network. I've returned the compliment and followed you back.

I'm a computer programmer too, and I'm due for retired soon. Not before time. Forty-five years working for someone else. It's about time I did something for me!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. WA is a great community. There is so much to learn. I am here most days. I learn something new every day.

I've been a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate for two years, and I don't regret one day! I'm now a member of the 2020 Super Affiliate Challenge. I'll see it through to the end, and I'll be at the Las Vegas Super Affiliate Conference next year.

Pace yourself and enjoy your journey. Remember, little steps are better than no steps!

Best wishes,
Paul.
Be Happy!

I'm in Miami, Fl. We had hurricane Irma last year and it was a big scare, but we didn't get the eye, we only got 100 MPH+ winds and a lot of rain. Believe me, it could have been a lot worse, but you had a monster one a few months back in Houston. So you have seen lots more than I have.

I'm in Houston area, and was there for Harvey. The eye hit Corpus Christi, but the tornadoes whipped through Houston.

Hey Alfredo!

Congrats and welcome to WA premium!

I think the most import thing to do with any new venture is to "plug in" and be consistent. Schedule time each day to do the training, work on your site and write content. You'll find that content is king. :)

Here's to great success with your WA journey and online endeavors!

Welcome Alfredo and congratulations on my the decision to build your stream of income with an online business that you can do from home.

Your income goals are realistic and you can do by learning and taking action with the training program here in Wealthy Affiliate. Think about this... to reach your income goal of $500 a month, you'll only need to make about $115 a week. With your time commitment of 20 hours a week, that's just $5.76 per hour that you'll need to make.

Focus your energy and effort on the training and follow each step. Don't worry if you get a bit overwhelmed, that's normal when you learn something new. Just decide never to quit and stay connected with this amazing community.

Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learnt to always use the search tab at the top of the desktop, the answer is usually in someone's free training. Type in topic, rather than long question.
There is an answer to just about every question, all you need to do is ask..
Aside from the Certification and Bootcamp courses, there is heaps of extra training. Check out the training classrooms as well as the live events. There are current as well as past events in here. You can find both these tabs on the left-hand side
Start playing with tabs and boxes on your dashboard, there is so much hidden information, just keep looking for it.
Enjoy Wealthy Affiliate. There are lots of people here only too happy to help you along the way with encouragement and helpful tips. Wealthy Affiliate is about training, but that is just a small part of this wonderful community. If you participate as well as train, you will gain so much more.
cheers

H!! And welcome to WA Premium!! You will not regret your decision to go Premium! The information available here is never ending! And the training is incredible, and you won’t find anything like it, anywhere else!! Take it ALL in!!

Follow the training! I cannot stress this enough. Do not skip around. Do the lessons in the order in which they are. As well as the tasks that follow each of those lessons. I often jumped ahead in my training, to only later really regret it. Take my word for it, it’s not worth it. Stay on course.
Go at your pace. Slow and steady is my new rule. You'll find you can't wait to learn more in the following days. You’ll want to learn more!! It ignites a new passion within you. It did me! Gave me back my purpose for living! There were a few lessons that I had to watch twice. If that's what you have to do, do it!

And soon you will have yourself an awesome website. Amazing direction, and the tools that you need to succeed in whatever it is you want to do!

You CAN do this!!

Be awesome! Be amazing!! And be successful!!!

Hey Alfredo,

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 Alfredo and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

-Kyle

I did go premium on 27th. Thanks for your first monrh discount. I will start training either January 4th or 5th. I still have family staying with me thru Friday night. Too many distractions, I don't want any. Thanks.

Hi Alfredo, just stopping by to see how things are going for you?

If you would like some tips on choosing a niche or getting your website setup, just let me know!

Here's some of the basics of choosing a niche to get you started...

* Is there anything you are particularly interested in (like a hobby for example)?
* Is there something you are passionate about?
* Is there a topic you know something about or want to learn more about?

These are all good starting points, and from here I can help you choose a profitable niche.

Simply reply to this message and I'll work with you personally to come up with a winning niche idea, so we can get your business rolling! :)

Cheers,
Tim

P.S I noticed your account isn't fully setup yet, Alfredo. While this is not required, it can definitely help you a lot.

Members who fill out a short description and add an image to their profile get WAY more value from the community here. And I really want you to see you take FULL advantage of everything you have here within Wealthy Affiliate, so you can create a successful online business.

Click the link below to see how easy it is to complete your profile: Let me know if you have any questions too! I'm just a message away and I'm more than happy to help you out, so feel free to reach out at any time.
