About BeingGreat
Joined March 2015
Entrepreneur/Technologist-Opened several Brick & Mortar businesses last of which was a restaurant. I have managed computer networks for Brokerage firms and also sold bedroom sets on Ebay. I have owned a small computer consulting biz for small businesses that could not afford a full time computer person. Macintosh is a specialty. I'm now representing HP products in a Best Buy/Office Depot part time to make ends meet. I have been on the internet since there were 1200 baud dial up modems ;-)

I lived in NYC (West Village) till October 2015. I have recently moved to Tyler TX where my son, daughter-in-law and 3 grandchildren live. Believe it or not I haven't owned a car since 1999 until my recent move. I need to supplement my Social Security check to the tune of $2,000+ to make sure my small IRA doesn't run out or if I live too long ;-)) I would also be able to see my Grandkids in CA more often.

Thank you for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. If you need any help remember to post your question in the comments section or on live chat, and someone will be able to help you.

West Village, nice place but is there really any cheap place in NYC? I love the city but its too rich for my blood to live there. Being 15 minutes away in the burbs is more my speed. :-)

If you have the time or wish to, please check out my training and blog posts on my profile page. I explain ways to help you build a better website and best practices here at WA. I also post an entertaining and/or humorous blog every Sunday. Enjoy!

Hi Ron

How are you today?
I trust that you are well.
Apologizes for the delayed reply, been off doing other things. :)

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliates (WA)
Thanks for the follow - follow you right back

Right now, there are just two things you need to know and do.

1) Ask Questions
Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. The support here at WA is the best in the internet marketing industry...please take advantage of it.

2) By now you should have gotten started
This is not a 100 meter dash, it's more of a marathon - so do it at your own pace

All the best

Paul

Ps - here Persistence pays off bigtime

Thanks for following me, Ron. My kids live in TX and CA also but I only have living grandkids here in TX (we moved here to be near them). Congratulations on making a quick move to Premium. It will help you a lot. Best to you as you continue to build a lifestyle.

I have 3 grandkids in Tyler TX. Just got back from a great trip. I am thinking of moving to TX. Closer to grandkids and cut my expenses. Making a little income online would solidify the decision

I moved here from California - a very expensive place with horrible state income taxes to a much less expensive place with no state income tax. It's nice!

Thank you, I'm trying to do what I really do best which is to just follow the instructions. This industry loves to push itself right in your face. Anyone with 1/2 a brain heres the same pitch everywhere. You can imagine my inbox and the ads I see in Facebook. I have settled here and I like the quiet atmosphere without all the hype. I am just completing lesson 5.

Kyle Premium
I can hear you...it is EVERYWHERE. I know you are going to find your experience here at WA much different. We don't need to push things in your face, we let your service and community speak for itself which is why we offer completely free access (which nobody else is doing in the industry).

I really do look forward to working with you and from the sounds of it, it sounds like you are making some really good progress thus far! Let me know if you ever need a hand with anything Ron.

Thanks for the greeting. I like what I see so far. I've been a little bit of the follow the shiny object the last year. I'll just chalked it up to newbieitis. You never know whats real in this industry because everyone is getting a commission to hype everything else. This looks no nonsense. I haven't noticed the extreme hype you see everywhere else.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Definitely no nonsense and I can appreciate any skepticism as well. So many scams out there and as you say, so many people that are promoting garbage just for their high commissions. WA is different and I know you are going to love your experience here Ron. :)
