About Barney44
Joined July 2018
Barney is not me true name but a nickname I have latched onto for years after my future sister-in-law misread my name on work shirt. Real name is Barry, liked the Barney handle so for past 30+ years have used it at times.

As one of the “ole” (not old) retired people I have time on my hands and have been looking for means of added income without being tied to the 8 to 5 routine.

Dear Barry, thanks for sharing and for accepting my invite, much appreciated. Seems you're doing very well, so keep on track and let's stay in touch.

Will keep in touch and hopefully on track.

Printed off your writing tips so can study them and have for reference as it looks like I may be able to get the reconstructed web sight up and running soon. Has been a month basically without posting new articles to my website. Have some unpublished that are ready to be published as soon as get site up and running.

Hey there,

Just wanted to say Hi and thanks again for adding me to your network.

I'm an Ambassador because I pay it forward, add value to the community with WA blogs and training, and I send new WA members consistently with my online ad campaigns.

One of the many ways I like to pay it forward here in the community is with a free video website audit to help you get the most out of the WA training.

I do it because I see a lot of people struggling to get true financial freedom, and sometimes knowing what you don't know, helps you, so if you ever want any help or free advice enhancing your website hosted on Wealthy Affiliate, I'd be happy to do an audit by video.

I do this 100% without ANY promotion of my external services because I love Wealthy Affiliate and it's my way of giving back.

No pressure. It's an open-ended offer, whenever you need it. Always happy to help you win here!

Hi and a big welcome. Thank you for the following as I am following you in kind.

I do understand the "ole" as I am not far off from there but can and do relate to the "means of added income" and would definitely despise a 9-5 job, especially now.

Finding a home based business is a dream of many. Learning along the way and growing your skills can soon show you where to go.
Enjoy the time you are in, be open to ideas and new skills, and you will find that retirement is a wonderful place to be in.
Having such a positive place to learn and grow, with so many who are successful is a windfall. Good for you for find us.
Thanks for adding me to your network.

Good Day, Barry, and congratulations on joining this vibrant community.

You have literally been there, ... done that, ... got the T-shirt. I find your post very inspiring and a great read to begin my day.

Thanks for your story on Moses. As an "ole" guy myself, I seek heroes in the more mature corners of humanity.

I ponder on the example of Colonel Harland David Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame. Colonel Sanders achieved his greatest success at 62 years of age.

Another "spring chicken", (pun intended) was Frank Lloyd Wright. Ridiculed for years, because of his advanced ideas, the world of architecture finally caught up to him. His "Fallingwater" is what he called "organic architecture". A lot of his best works were done as he matured.

There is still hope for us yet!

I have found a pleasant tidbit in your inspirational post.

Thanks for sharing it with us today.

I am grateful to have found it, and it is setting the tone for my day.

Again thanks, a spring chicken.


80 ... ROCKS!!!

Happy Birthday! and lots more!

Hello Barney ,
May I ask from where you hail ?
Regarding to your bio, I mistakenly thought my good friend for years now said his name was Dexter when we first met, but in reality he said Derrick.

So 15 plus years now, guess what he answers to?
The name Dexter ha ha
Best wishes

Hi Barry or Barney...lol! Thanks for the follow and I am now following you back. I can't say I blame you for the additional income opportunity. I would do the same if I was retired. It looks like you and I joined WA roughly the same time. How goes it for you. I am slowly progressing and hope to see some results by the time I have been at it for a year. We will see.

I wish you the best!
Barney44 Premium
Same goal here for results by time been here a year.

Keep in touch

Hello Barry and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you may well have come to the conclusion that internet marketing is a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 460+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.
Barney44 Premium
Thanks Robert-A. I can see I am going to be doing some serious reading over next few days reading your blogs. Just scanning through the first few has my mind racing. Hope the reading digestive system is up to all it is going to ingesting.

Hello and welcome to WA Premium. I recently joined myself, and I'm so glad that I did. The information available is never ending!! And the triaing is Incredible!!

Start out with "Getting Started." Follow that training! I can not stress enought... Do not skip around. Do them in the order that they are. And go at your pace. It is not a race.

There has been a few lessons that I did 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!

Be awesome!! Be amazing!!! And succeed!!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! I've been waiting for you to get here!

My name is Jennifer - also known as PotPieGirl here online.

I'm very excited for you as you begin your internet marketing journey to success!

There may be times that you will feel overwhelmed and/or confused. Rest assured, that is totally natural. You are taking charge of your future and that's a BIG deal - and something you should be very proud of.

Please be patient with yourself as you work through the training - and ask for help when you need it.

If you need any help, try these options:

1. Live Chat - On the right side of your main dashboard here in WA, there is an on-going stream of live chat discussions. Have a question? Just ask in the chat box.

And hey, don't be shy - say hello!

2. Stop by my personal space here on WA and leave a message:


Don't forget to click the green button to "Follow Me" - that way we can keep up!

Also, at the top left of your dashboard is a big green button that says...

Get Started Here

Click that... and GET STARTED.

A year from now - you'll sure wish you had started today.

As someone who started all this knowing NOTHING, I can tell you first-hand from 10+ years of experience - it is a jungle out "there" (outside the walls of Wealthy Affiliate).

Please know that when you are here INSIDE this exclusive community, that you are safe and have all you need to grow your online business to whatever level YOU choose.

I've been here in WA since July 2008 - joining Wealthy Affiliate was the BEST decision I've made. I feel sure you will realize the same as you learn and work to make YOUR dreams come true.

I wish you all the best and remember -

It's not how fast you get there - it's how long you stay.

To YOUR Success!
