About Bill808
Joined June 2013
I am an advocate for resilient living and a career strategist. Actuall, the two missions compliment each other I follow trends that will affect our work and our careers. Then I help my friends plan a resilient career

Resilience enables us to be prepared to take advantage of opportunity and to deal with any emergency. It means we have the knowledge and resources needed to respond to an opportunity and the financial resources to live comfortably even when things don't go as planned.

I am a conservationist because I know we live on a finite planet with resources under extreme stress. The resilience of the earth has a limit. How we care for the earth will determine the quality of life of our children.

Both are important. As a forester, I have spent my life trying to make my corner of the world a little better place. As an internet entrepreneur, I help my friends make money on line. WA is definitely expanding my horizons.

My goal is to create an internet business that generates $2K month income within the next two years. Why am I using an internet business model? The internet provides us access to over a billion people, we can work from anywhere we have an internet connection. Start up costs and associated risk is minimal. What could be better?

Status update June 2018:
My last month has been consumed with studying the
GDPR and trying to find a solution. I've tried several solutions and think I may have finally found one that works for me.

I'm concentrating on resilientlivingtips dot com and Bill808 dot biz with several posts to each. One thing seems obvious. I need to concentrate on no more than two websites. That means I need to consolidate my interests in those two blogs. Based on Jay's advice. Any other URLs I develop must be targeted on a specific product in a narrow niche.

Goals this 3rd quarter 2018.
Write three posts per week to my resilient living tips blog.
Write one blog post per week to Bill808.
Set up opt-in lists for each website
Hold weekly webinars to discuss personal and financial resilience.
Write a weekly blog post to WA and contribute a monthly training.

Hi Top 100! ... and fabulous forester...would it be okay to ask you a tree question? ... we have a magnificent pendulous pine called Milton who is likely well over some 100+ years young....he's been recently 'hydro-hacked' and over-pruned by zealots previous year...while he shows new shoots at the tips--he's also showing some 'red' near the tips -- distressed? .. yes, likely, -- what if anything can we do for his health? ... we love him lots -- he provides so much cooling shade in summer and habitat playground for all the lil' birds e.g. chickadees, finches, juncos, hummers.. :) so beautiful...

There are a lot of tree species referred to as Pendulous pine. It is likely Milton lives in the northern Appalachia but Pinus strobus, Easter White Pine ranges from USDA Zone3 south along the Appalachia Mountains into Kentucky.

Milton seems very sick. Climate change is drought stressing a lot of tree species. I recommend you find an Agricultural Extension Agent or check with your local Forest Service. The both have people who will make local house calls to checkout Milton.

You can make a berm at the outer drip line of the crown and flood irrigate during summer drought. Moisture must be able to penetrate deep. You can find an arborist who can give Milton shots of nutrients and also check for bark beetle and root problems.

Hi Bill,

Great meeting you and thank you for following me.

I know how you feel when you state you have to concentrate only on two websites. I went out like a bull out of a gate and started three, which was a mistake. I am now trying to master one then move forward.

Let's hope they wake up to themselves and give the Amazing Amazon a break. They have butchered that mighty jungle and now they are just throwing truckloads and truckloads of garbage into her bloodline river and really destroying her. I couldn't believe it when I saw the videos only two weeks ago.

In Australia, our two major supermarkets, as of yesterday July 1, have removed plastic bags from the checkout. And I think this is a great step forward and eventually, others will follow.

On a final note, I would like to wish you the best in all aspects of life and see you along the journey through WA!!!

Cheers,

Brad

Thanks Brad. Hawaii has been trying to ban plastic bags for a decade. The State Legislatiure has fail to act, but each of our Counties have initiated bans.

They have to do something about South America. It is shocking and can have an effect on the rest of the world.

I've seen pictures of rivers in India and Southeast Asia that look like you could walk on the plastic. We have the largest marine reserve in the world thousand of mile from the nearest continent and our sea birds are starving because they are full of plastic.

Hi Bill!

I've read your quote of Zig Ziglar :) So I just had to see what you are up to - and follow you!

Big Zig Ziglar fan over here. Nice to meet you!

Oh, the GDPR - I'm about to handle this for my own blog at the moment. But nearly finished!
If you like, I can recommend the course I'm using right now - from a lawyer/blogger/teacher (great combination eh?) who is specialized in this. She has templates to copy and a list of plugins with the settings explained. It has helped me a lot to have everything in one place - lawyer confirmed.

With that said - I'm looking forward to following your updates here on WA!

I'm so grateful for this place. It's like getting an energy boost from a big powerplant of knowledge :)

Have a great day, Bill!

Best wishes,
Benita

Thanks for following me, Bill.

I'm new to WA. I went Premium May 4 (Joined April 22). I'm here at WA to learn how to supplement my fixed income.

I went Yearly June 1 2018. I'm excited about dedicating myself for a year. I hope to have the same success you have had with WA.

Resiliency is an attribute that is developed with those who have mental health conditions. I like how you coined the phrase "resiliency advocate". It will be something I will borrow when working with my peer network.

It is interesting to have found a conservationist working the WA program. I have bookmarked your profile for future reference to stay up to date with your ramblings. I'm sure I will learn a lot.

I have added you to my bookmarks on Google and followed you on Google+.

Thanks for writing articles that inspire newcomers to pursue their dreams. You are definitely a marketer to watch..

Congratulations for being in the Top 100.

Thanks for reaching out to a newcomer.

All the best,

Louisa

Hi Bill,I'm married to one, tee hee.
So you live in Hawaii boy I didn't realize how difficult the spelling of that was.
Conservation is pretty well "up there" as far as I'm concerned.
My view is the same as yours, help others to help themselves and give them the confidence to do so.
Thank you for following me, I am following you back.

Hi Jae, The Missionaries developed the Hawaiian written language based on Latin. If you use the Latin pronunciation of the letters and know a few simple rules you can generally spell the Hawaiian word correctly. Hawaii is actually spelled Hawai'i. The glottal stop (') is a letter in the Hawaiian alphabet. Two vowels cannot be used together so a ' is used to separate them. There are always exceptions. For instance Hawaiian is spelled without glottal stops.

Hawaiian is a complex language in that a single word can have many meanings. For instance the word pono cannot be translated into English. It means to live a balanced life, to live in harmony with others, to live righteously, to be at peace with ones self and the world. goodness, uprightness, morality, correct and proper proceedure, excellance, prosperty, treating others fairly, duty... a simple 4 letter word with so many great meanings.

Hi Bill, and thank you for the follow! You have an interesting bio. My parents and Son just got back from visiting the islands. They went to several different islands and had a lot of fun. They were there for a month and they love it, especially Maui. That's the only island I been to and I love it there too! One thing I never understood was why there was no inter-island ferry boat to get people around the islands. You could argue that it would interfere or harm the humpback whales but what about all the cruise lines that frequent the islands. You'd think an airplane flight would do more harm to the environment than a slow moving boat would but I don't know. I'd be interested to hear your opinion on the matter if you have the time. If not, no big deal. Hey, if you ever need anything, let me know and I'll do my best to help you out! Best of luck to you!

I lived on Maui for 5 years before transferring to Oahu. There is no experience like standing at the summit of Hale'akala and watching the Sunrise.

We had an interisland ferry for a short time. The Governor tried to short cut our EIS process and the courts shut down the ferries saying a EIS was required. The company took its ferries and went to Asia.

We have a serious invasive species problem in Hawaii and try to keep bad stuff from moving between islands. Bad bugs would hitch a ride on vehicles. For instance, the slug that carries rat lung disease is on the island of Hawaii. It could attach to the underside of a vehicle and be transported to other island. Rat lung disease is having a major economic impact on local farmers because no one will buy their produce.

Just one example.

I understand completely now. Yes, invasive species can really cause problems. That's too bad, hopefully you will be able to get it under control. Thank you for responding!

Hi Bill,

Having just read your post about creating $100k/yr in passive income I decided to look here.

I like your intensity and desire to look after mother earth, I like to do my bit but not on such a scale as you. But every little bit helps.

Anyway, decided to follow you and will keep in touch.

We all must do what we can.
I believe grassroots conservation organizations who understand their local problems working together worldwide, will be a source of power to change the current destruction. We have to stop the two big Cs of world destruction. Climate change and Conflict.

Get active. Build your own personal and financial resilience. Then work to leave a quality life for your kids.

Bill, it's good to meet you! Thank you for following me and adding me to your network. It's encouraging to meet people such as yourself who have been here for so long.

Your sites are great although you might want to take a look at your Send Out Cards review post. I'm not sure if it's a carryover from a theme change or quite what has happened but there is some code at the top of it (looks like content/theme markers - not sure what the right term is but you'll see what I mean when you view the page. It also has a strange post name in the URL
https://bill808.biz/create-your-business/recommended-businesses/307-2).

Anyway, I digress - great to meet you and wishing you every success :)

I must just be stubborn. I think internet markting is the best option for anyone over 50 who has been out of work for a year. The chances for anyone in that demographic getting a job are pretty slim. The option is to create our own business.

Hello Bill and thank you for following me back.
Like you I am a great admirer of mother earth's resilience and try to better my little corner of the earth - though I am not a forester I do my best to do what I can to keep and protect what we have.
Looking forward to networking with you...

When I was young, I wanted to take care of my little corner of the earth. I figured if others did the same things would be good. Unfortunately, conflict and climate change intervened and things have gotten to the point that I fear for my grandchildren.

Now we have to focus on maintaining our personal and global resilience. One way we will maintain our personal resilience is being prepared for anything that happens and diversifying our incomes. I believe the internet gives us a way to create an incredible income and WA will teach us what we have to do to achieve our goals.

My websites and contact information are in my profile. My company is Hana Like, Hawaiian for working together. Let's do it.
