Hello Everyone,
My name is Brian. For the last 30 plus years I have been working as a General Contractor. I did a lot of kitchen and bath remodels, plus every kind of job you can think of when it comes to owning a house.
Due to some medical situations, I am no longer able to do this kind of work. I have been searching for a way to start a new income, for my family and I.
I came across this site this morning. I feel I finally have a chance at succeeding in my quest. I look forward to all of the great possibilities here.
Thank you for stopping by and reading this. I hope we can connect and help each other succeed.

Hey Brian! How's the training coming? Enjoying your time here so far? If you need me to look over anything or want my opinion on what you've done so far, just hit reply and I'll be more than happy to take a look!

Real quick, would you rather have a small lemonade stand on your front yard or be the owner of a global juice empire? I know this is a weird question, but this blog post will help clear things up!

I just went through one of the most trying times of my life. My house was flooded here in Texas by all of the heavy rains we received over the last week and weekend. I lost my computer, printer and so much more. I am very happy to be able to come back here and see that there is light at the end of this dark tunnel. I want to thank everyone for following me and offering help to get my business up and running. I still have a mess to deal with here, but I will be back for sure.

Thanks for the follow, Brian. I'm also following you. I'm here to do the same thing. Been rehabbing houses and it's getting where my body doesn't handle it good anymore and knees about gone. Getting my income switched around to be easier on my body.

Hello Grant, Sorry to have taken so long to respond to your post. I was flooded out of our house for close to five and a half days. We just got our power turned back on last night. I know exactly how you feel after years of contracting. My body gave out on me about a year ago. I had just gotten two Cordizone shots for a dislocated shoulder by my VA doctor. Four hours later I am in a local hospital having a massive heart attack. I can not seem to control my blood pressure whenever I do any rehap work. So I am trying very hard to start life all over at 62. But I do feel like this is the place to do it. I hope everything works out for you too Grant. I am sure going to give this my all.

Hello Julie, thank you for the encouraging post. I have never encountered such an amazing site where people are so anxious to help one and another. Outside of my church this site is considered amazing for people helping people. Steady is the way to go. Thank you so much Julie.

Hello Brian, ♫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

Hello Loes, thank you so much for your warm welcome and offer to learn from your experiences. This means a lot to me. I am virtually starting my life over from step one. It is nice to know there are caring people who have offered me and so many others a helping hand. Thank You. I look forward to reading your articles.

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live last week and the one on sleep apnea has been up for a couple of months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Compsol199,
Thank you for the welcome here on WA. I have looked at so many ways to make a living in one thing or another. This is the only site which really makes sense. Especially when you have so many people eager to help you. I am looking forward to checking out your sites. I was just diagnosed with sleep apnea, so I can use your information.
Thank you

Hi Brian,
Nice to meet you! The WA community is one of the main reasons why I joined as an annual premium member. I hope you find the information on my sleep apnea site useful for you. Have you started on a CPAP machine yet?
Best regards,
Shawn

Thank you Shawn, this is an awesome community. I have never experienced anything like this. I finally feel like I can actually succeed. No I do not have the Cpap machine yet.
I am getting my treatment with the VA, so they tend to be very slow at getting me the treatment I need. Thanks again Shawn.

Hey Brian and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 5 years ago. I was looking to learn how to supplement my income through Internet Marketing and what I've found was so much more.

By 2010, I was working full-time from home. These days, ALL of my income comes from my ventures online. In fact, my wife just recently quit her job to start her own business as well. Internet Marketing and Wealthy Affiliate have provided us with amazing opportunities (we've bought a house, get to travel the world, and best of all, no longer spend time "going to work") and I'm incredibly thankful to the training, tools, and support here that made it all possible. :)

I'd love for you to see the same level of success. So, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

To get started, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself. If there's anything I can do for you Brian, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve

PS. Hit the reply button and say hi so I know you made it here OK!

Good Afternoon Steve,
Thank you for the kind welcome. Plus reading how you and your wife, both are making money online, is very encouraging. I recently found myself in a situation where I can no longer do what I had spent the last 25 plus years doing. So this is all very new to me. I have a lot to learn before I am able to bring any kind of money in. But I am very excited about the possibility of generating an income here.
Every other site I checked seemed to be more interested in what little money I have left, rather than teaching anyone their guarded secrets.
Thank you again Steve, I look forward to this new journey.
Have a Blessed Day,

Brian Evans
