About Azgorilla
Joined June 2014
Hi there! My name is Tom McDaniel and I am new to WA but not new to online opportunities. I've added a few more below my profile pic so you can have a "feel" for what I've done in the past, feel free to have a look see. I'll add more as time goes on.

Just put up another profile picture as part of the WA training. WA says that we need a "mug" shot...er, I mean... a face shot. :) so here it is. ( Sunny days makes me squinty eyes. Sorry. ) It's great training because we'll be getting ourselves better ranked with Google. Yay!

FYI I'm one of those people that have been "forced" into a huge variety of different jobs over many years, mainly because of the economy. Because of that, I've been able to have a rather interesting background.

Let me explain. First of all, I am what is called a "blue collar" worker. You know, people who are not afraid to get their hands dirty. I love working with my hands and either building something or fixing something. :) I've been in the steel trade for many years. Welding, and steel fabrication. Pipeline work is also included when working with the natural gas companies.

As much as I enjoyed what I was doing, it began to bore me and many times the jobs just ran out. So I was again, "forced" into a totally different type of industry and began to do automotive painting. After a number of years doing that, I changed things up again and began taking schooling as a crane operator.

Tower crane, hydraulic and a few more were now in my certifications. Great fun, but highly dangerous. Not from my point, but for the point of view of the guys that are working on the ground as I move a load around them.

OK, so with that under my belt, I needed to also have a class A CDL license in order to drive many of the tired cranes on the open highway. Another notch in my belt.
Then, because of injuries on the job, I was "forced" into early retirement.

In the mean time, I was taking further classes in the Air Conditioning and Refrigeration fields. That called for lots of electrical troubleshooting.

At the same time, I was learning the sheet metal trade, along with classes using calculus math. I was surprised and pleased when I got an A for a grade in the math class.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not so smart, but it's mainly the teacher. His techniques were so easy to follow that pretty much everyone in his classes received either an A or B+.

I also do public speaking and am now in a position to teach others to do the same. It's great fun.

OK, so what is next? About 4 years back (2010) I began my online exploring on business opportunities. I read all about how some have made fortunes online. So my thinking is...if they can do it, so can I, after all, I am not afraid of doing hard work.

However, as time went on, and several 1000 dollars later, I realized that it is not as "easy" as these guru's claimed it to be.

So what to do now?

I began my research once more, on scams. I came across an interesting site that mentioned WA.

I investigated it and was amazed at all the positive input from people just like me, that was actually able to make some $$$ from the program. It was not viewed by anyone as a scam.

Needless to say, after emailing the young man whose blog caught my initial interest, asking him many questions, I am happy to say that I've just come on board with WA.

Looks like a great place to be. So much great information, I'm not sure where to start. I feel like a kid in a candy store with permission to go and have anything I want! YaY! :)

OK, so, enough of that, I'll be in touch.

UPDATE: Got my site up and running.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Love your website. I am a travel agent and do send people to Seattle often to catch a cruise. Will have to look more carefully at your web. How are you doing with WA?
Reply
azgorilla Premium
Thanks DJ for your kind words. How am I doing in WA? First of all, I am not in any hurry to make money, though it is nice when it comes in.
My mentor explained to me that when we do things right, the first time, things will come together.
When we have a real quality site, along with great information, plus it is being constantly updated...THAT is really the important thing.
So, being new to WA and online marketing, just remember, you have NO competition...except yourself.
There is no need to feel you are "left behind." No such thing here in WA.
Follow Kyle's videos and if you have a question, just ask the community.
Have fun and enjoy the ride........... :) Tom

Sure thing. Number one way of having an online marketing business is to follow Kyle's videos step by step.
Make sure that you have done each step...then, and only then...move to the next step.
Stuck ? Ask for help in the community.
Be sure and go to the little magnifying glass at the top and type in your question. A drop down will show up and perhaps your question has already been asked and answered.
Still stuck? Ask the community once more.

Nothing wrong with being a blue collar worker. I started out as a laborer, then went thru electrician apprenticeship, then a master electrician. Then became a control system technician. All the time getting my hands dirty. Then got into engineering and cleaned up my hands a little. Ha..ha. Finally into supervision and management. Wow, never got dirty hands then. Ha..ha. Now I am retired and trying my clean hands at internet marketing. Lets see how this works. So far pretty good.
Thanks for following me and good luck with your website

azgorilla Premium
Hey Larry, thanks for the comments.
Over many years I've worked along side of many electricians. All seemed to be great people.
I putting you in that same arena. Being that way and wanting to get things "juiced up" here in WA will be a great start.

Have you gotten some ideas about your unique niche?
FYI If you do seem to get stuck, be sure and go to the top of your page where the little magnifying glass is and enter your question.

Then you'll see a little drop down menu with questions and their answers. You may even find the right answer for any and all of the questions you may or may not have.

If you do not find an answer, be sure and ask the community.

Have fun...always.......... :) Tom

My wife and I moved around several times before we came back to where I mainly grew up.
I lived over in Bellevue, then Maple Valley, then Federal Way, then back to town (South end...neither of us liked that area :( ...) then finally out to Covington (Kent area).

I lived up in Burlington for several months on a job I was on.

It's interesting, Seattle has such a wide variety of areas that are totally different than another area that is only a few miles from each other.

The ENTIRE south end has been rejuvenated to it's original condition by many people moving up from Cali. and completely remodeling all the older homes, buildings, etc.

Hello Tom and thanks for the follow - of the two Office Suites, I tend to lean toward LibreOffice more so than OpenOffice, even though OpenOffice was the first. For a time, OpenOffice wasn't being maintained after it was bought and then dropped by Oracle and a group of volunteers forked the core programs and reworked them into LibreOffice. Even though OpenOffice is now back under development today with Apache, I got used to the LibreOffice suite and have stuck with it. Basically the two share the same code, so the differences are slight - mostly aesthetic. But because of the structure of the licensing agreements, LibreOffice can incorporate any modifications to OpenOffice into their code, whereas OpenOffice can't incorporate changes in LibreOffice into theirs. Because of this LibreOffice has been developing at a faster rate.

I just left a comment on your website. I like it. Similar t what I am doing with Panama. How do you plan to monetize it?
Reply
azgorilla Premium
Since I'm still in the learning stage in WA, I am doing things as Kyle tells us to do. So far, I'm at the stage of directing readers to Amazon products, Pinterest, G+, Twitter and Facebook.

It takes time to build a good site to be recognized by Google. My mentor suggested that (he is at ambassador level) that once I've gone through the entire training...to go through it again.

At that time, he is going to introduce me to more and more ways to monetize the entire site. In the mean time, he's advised me to keep building content that is informative and interesting and at the same time, funny.
That is what people like to read. Along with pictures, of course.

Thanks for the invitation to "pick your brain" regarding this online network marketing venture Sue.
I'm sure that I'll be getting back with you in future days.
That is one thing I am still in shock about this WA community. Everyone really WANTS to help each other. So many of us have been trained that this is a so called "dog eat dog" world and no one really wants to be helpful.
But when we all have our own special little niche, and not indirect completion with each other... what a world of difference it makes!
Not only that, but even if we do have a similar niche, the "net" is soooooooo huge, that we will not need to worry about that.

Hello Renee, It's great to have you with us here at WA.
Your intro mentioned you enjoy helping others and you love to do social media.
Here is a suggestion for you. It's for dummies like me that need to know how to do social media.
Consider putting together a blog or video dealing with the most popular social media sites.
I want to use them to invite folks to my site, but I am a bit lost as to how to do it.
Now, with someone like yourself, why not consider that as something to put together?
Just a suggestion. Thanks for the follow and I'm looking forward to what you have in store for yourself and the WA community.

Hmmmm....Jumping around? Yikes! Thanks for letting me know. I chose that particular template because it's compatible with smart phone, ipads, and so on.
FYI On my site, at first, it does seems to "jump" a bit, that's because it is changing the main pictures. I have 4 pictures that will slide from one to the next.
But, if you scroll down, the jumping probably will stop and you can take a look at the rest.
Please let me know if you have time to take a look again and the outcome.

Thanks again...and just keep smiling ! Tom

Hey Tom. I just went on your site again. Only this time I was on my laptop and everything appeared to be ok. When you click on the arrows in the 4 boxes is it suppose to go to what the box is titled? Because on mine it does not. Looks good though. On my site, I'm trying to figure out the widget thing like you have, but nothing is where I want them. I will just keep trying. Blessings Tom

Zora2 ,
Kind words, thanks. My site is still a work in progress. I too, am still messing with the widgets. I've gotten to the point where I am not scared of goofing things up, and that is when I was finally able to figure out a few things.
The little boxes I have set up, at this time, really go no where. :(
That's one of those little glitches that I still need to figure out.

If I can be of any (limited though) help, please let me know.
It's great to be able to help people. I do volunteer work and it is so satisfying. When I get WA all figured out, I'll be doing the same thing ... but with online folks.

Thanks for the comment. Actually though, when the boss went around and was taking everyone's pictures, the temp was about 128 F. I always wore long sleeves as protection from the sun.
But....you are right....it is really cool to be able to move massively heavy stuff around. :)

Thanks man, for the great comment. I totally agree with you that it just takes perseverance to really get good and anything. Since I did not grow up in such a "happy childhood home", I've always told myself that I will become better than I was as a child. So my thinking is, and always has been is : If he/she can do it....so can I !

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Tom!

I hope that you are enjoying your first day here within the community and have had a chance to poke around and see what we have to offer. As you get started I'd like to suggest working through the "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)" course as it will give you a very solid understanding of how Internet marketing works and how you can leverage the Internet to earn revenue.

This training is on your Dashboard and can be found in the main menu:
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1

I am here to help at each step of the way so please do not hesitate to ask for anything :)

Hey there Carson,
I am totally blown away that you, as one of the co-founders of WA, would take the time to actually shoot me out a personal comment. A great company ALWAYS starts from the top down. After all, the individuals that come into a company can only imitate it's leaders. You and Kyle are two of the best I've ever come across. Keep doing what your are doing. Thanks again.....

Hi Tom, Nathaniell here. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started.

Before you start making money, there are just two things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. Watch this video here to learn how to maximize your community reach in WA https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/completing-your-account-set-up-at-wa-adding-a-description-image

More buddies means more support. More support means more success.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button or just click this link https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1/getting-rolling. Remember that you can ask any questions you want in live chat, on your personal blog, or in the Getting Started Classroom here https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started

And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/nathaniell or by private message if you are a premium member.


★ ★ ★ How To Access Your Exclusive Bonuses ★ ★ ★

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership. Twenty bucks for you first month of WA is an absolute steal. This is available to all members. But I've lined up some other things which are a bit more exclusive.


☆ ☆ Bonus #1: Live Case Study 3 Part Webinar Series

Get access to a 3-Part-Series Live Case Study webinar. It's video series where a professional internet marketer creates a complete 'niche website'. All steps are included and thoroughly explained. Total length of the videos is about 3 hours.

This will give you a broad overview of the type of site you will create on Wealthy Affiliate. I think it's always a good idea to know the direction you are headed before you start your journey.


☆ ☆ Bonus #2: Exclusive Look at The Top 5 Newbie Mistakes And How To Fix Them

Some questions get asked over and over again. It's very likely you have these same questions.

This is a two-part bonus. It includes an exclusive video not available to other WA members where I create a website EXACTLY how the training teaches you. Many new members don't follow the instructions properly and can't get their sites to work. Watch this video first, and you'll be up and running in 20 minutes with your own .com hosted here on WA.

I have also included 5 newbie website design and setup tips. These are super easy ways to turn your site from a basic Wordpress install into a streamlined canvas ready for action, and ready to impress your traffic.

This means you will be able to bypass these typical mistakes, get started faster, and on the right foot. This is an exciting time - you are building the foundations of a profitable online business, and I want to help you get started as quickly and smoothly as possible.

Nat, it's always a pleasure hearing from you. You come across as an extremely generous person. All the great knowledge you've gotten in the past 4 years has not "gone to your head", but your heart. Thanks for the superb info. :)
