About AllynBeekman
Joined July 2014
Upon graduation from college, I married my high school sweetheart. That was 41 years ago. We now have two grown & married children, plus four wonderful grandchildren. We have moved twice so we could be close to them and so they could know us really well.

As a young boy, I loved numbers and statistics. I would invent games just so I could keep statistics. Yes, that is a bit strange, I know. Math turned out to be my passion beginning in 7th grade and I pursued it through my undergraduate degree in college.

My father, the oldest child in his family, and his two brothers had continued to work a business their father had successfully started - a lumber company. Unfortunately, it was not sufficient for three families. As the eldest, my father struggled with a lot of the stress of a business that was not growing. Out of frustration, my father told me never to have my own business.

So, I went to college and became a good employee, first in the computer industry and then in higher education. Well, the university I had been working for decided to kill the program I had been directing the past several years because it was not performing well financially. My job went with it in August (2014). For the first time in 41 years, I found myself unemployed.

Since I had been forewarned of this, I had been searching for another job the past year. As I searched and applied, I kept getting "finalist" interviews and then finishing second. Recently, while searching, I came across WA and decided to try to get started. I have loved it from day one.

After getting started in WA and then having a couple more second-place finishes, I realized how little I really wanted to work yet another job. So, I have entered semi-retirement mode and am now working a part-time job.

Oh, and guess what I got hired (immediately) to do? I am now a part-time math tutor at the local community college math lab!

I know this business can work, so I will keep working it. In the meantime, being part-time allows me to spend time with our grandchildren, who are 8, 6, 4, and 1. We enjoy having the opportunity to be an influence in their lives.

I can appreciate that Allyn, I have had my fair share of jobs that just weren't doing it for me over the years. I can tell you there is light at the end of the tunnel.

We all want to be fulfilled in what we do, I can see that this is what you are after. The Internet truly presents this opportunity, regardless of the niche you want to work within.

Absolutely everything you need is here at WA, including the help. As you work through the Get Started Here training you are going to see your business coming together. If there is ever a point where you feel stuck or just want to say hi, simply drop me a Reply here and I will give you a hand.

PS. Let's get rolling!

Hi Vince - Thanks for your messages. So far, everything has been very clear! I've created my website, found a number of good keywords through Jaaxy, and am going next to lesson 8 of 10.

Allyn!! I noticed you set up your profile completely. SWEET!!! You're definitely on the right track!

Taking action on something is huge...even if it's as simple as an account set up.

Did you need help with anything?

Or have any questions?

Let me know!

Thanks Andre. I have had a very technical career with 25+ years in computer software, so the lessons are making total sense so far. I've found a great many good keywords (way more than 5) and now I need to move on to content.

Thanks Kyle. I've led online degree programs in higher ed and even initiated SEO efforts for a university website a number of years ago, so I am not intimidated by online, however, this is a different animal, one that I am excited to learn about. It may take me a little while to get going but I'll keep at it.

It really is not all that different than any other form of education, in fact, you have a real advantage here in that you have a community of support (and experts) behind you every step of the way.

I am here to help you out if you ever need anything as you head through the training Allyn, just let me know. I really do look forward to working with you!
