About BillFletcher
Joined May 2018
My name is Bill Fletcher. Growing up was exciting and different than most kids.

My dad was in the movies as one of the Little Rascals and on stage. One of our most memorable family friend was Ronald Reagan. So growing up in the entertainment business, I naturally stayed with it.

As a master photographer, I was able to put myself through college with a photography business. I graduated with a Masters in Business. However, entertainment was in my blood. This lead me to partner with my brother-in-law in which we founded a motion picture studio in Florida.

We ended up selling the studio and I took a few years off.

I left Florida and moved to Chicago. There, I was a radio announcer at a major radio station. I met my future wife Wendy and a few years later we married. Tired of being a radio personally, we moved and settled down in Dallas. Soon there were 2 beautiful girls.

With my business background, I began working with some very talented friends and together we established some high profile companies from Asia and Europe into the United States. This required a lot of world travel. Exciting to see and meet people all over the world, but I was doing it without the family.

Being close to my girls, I was missing family functions, so I decided to leave the corporate life to be with the family.

I went back to college and graduated as a Doctor of Audiology.

Dallas got too big. Longing for the midwest we moved and started a healthcare practice in my home town. After 20 years we sold the practice and retired. "Retirement was not to my liking."

Now creating a new life style, I'm looking forward to being home with the family and creating a new business with my wife and our lovely girls.

Hi Bill. You have quite a portfolio there. It's great to connect with you. Best of wishes in your business.

Thanks for following me, Bill.

What an awesome life you have led. You will be an asset to the WA community. I can just imagine how interesting your website would be. Looking forward to see some of your recordings on video or audio.

Welcome to the WA family. Success can be found here by following simple directions in the lessons.

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

If you enjoy the WA community, look into Going Yearly as soon as you can. I hear there is a lot more interaction at this level. I went Yearly June 1 since I saved up this past May (using my birthday money and savings from tax refund and book sales on eBay). I know you know the value of connecting to your customer base. The benefits will be sweet now that I'm dedicated to WA for a year.

All the best,

Question: Does the Follow Me (Green) tab, mean Follow Me as it relates to me Bill or Follow You as it relates to you Abe?
onlineflow Premium
Good question, Bill
The green 'Follow Me' field refers to the circled person next to it. So, when you click the one next to me you 'Follow Me'

Welcome to WA!

You may find this post helpful on your journey.

Hey Bill, how's everything coming along now that you've been a member for a few days? I hope you've found your way into the "Get Started Here" training toward the top of the menu on the left and that you're enjoying yourself so far!

Some people gravitate towards the "Affiliate Bootcamp" training which is something I don't recommend right off of the bat if you've never made money in internet marketing before. I have a detailed blog post covering this topic if it's something you're wrestling with and you'd like me to send you the link.

I know that may be a bit confusing, but if you have any questions at all don't hesitate to ask! I hope you're enjoying your time here so far :)
pribs Premium
It looks like you're moving along very nicely, Bill! I see you have your profile all setup and hopefully you've been engaging with the community a bit!

I keep a pretty good pulse of my referrals here, especially the ones that are working hard to help themselves (and so do the co-founders of Wealthy Affiliate, Kyle and Carson), so if you're willing to work hard here, I'm happy to help support you every way that I can!

Let me know if there's anything I can help you with.
pribs Premium
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! :)
BillFletcher Premium
I'm thinking of a niche and would like your review and comments.

To test it out, I have written my first article on my new site.

How is the best way to communicate?
pribs Premium
The best way to communicate privately would be via private message, but unfortunately, that's restricted to premium membership. Without that, dropping it here would probably be the best way!
BillFletcher Premium
Thanks for the the reply. How about via my email?
Hi Bill :)

Welcome to WA.

Wow, I loved the Little Rascals
pribs Premium
Hey Bill! I wanted to start you off with a quick note that could SIGNIFICANTLY impact your success with Wealthy Affiliate. Read this entire message if you are serious about being successful in internet marketing (it's lengthy, but I'm not joking when I say that this advice could make or break your entire internet marketing career):

1) You'll need to work consistently and hard. There's going to be a lot to learn in the beginning and you may feel overwhelmed at a point, but keep pressing forward and you'll make it through. It happened to me and every other successful internet marketer at some point, and the only way to become successful in this industry is to push past that overload whenever you get there.

Do yourself a favor and commit to a number of hours that you can work each week right now. It doesn't have to be massive, but it should be more than 10 between evenings and weekends at least. Just remember the more you work each week, the faster you'll learn and draw closer to success.

After you've picked the number of hours you can work each week, commit to working that much for AT LEAST six months - a year would be better. You won't see results immediately in this industry, and being consistent is the key. Pick a number of hours you can work each week, then work those hours for at least six months. It's something you've probably never done in this industry, and this advice alone will make a HUGE difference in your chances at succeeding with internet marketing as long as you take it seriously and STICK WITH IT.

2) I recommend starting off with this training (which you can access with your free account): It just scratches the surface of the MASSIVE amount of helpful content in WA, but you'll get a good "feel" for the teaching style here and begin to see the power of all of the great things they're teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate.

3) DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE COMMUNITY. Two of the best places you can go to for help when you get stuck are the "Live Chat" and the "Classrooms" sections located on the panel to your left. You'll find direction and inspiration through the community here, which is one of the reasons I recommend WA so highly.

4) Finally, you don't ever have to upgrade to the premium account here at Wealthy Affiliate if you don't want to. You'll have limited access using your free account for as long as you wish. HOWEVER, if you're serious about internet and affiliate marketing then you should invest in the premium membership for AT LEAST one month. You could look back on it years from now and see it as a pivotal moment in your internet marketing career, but you never will if you don't at least give it a try.

Check it out for a few days though - you don't need to upgrade right now. Make sure it's a good fit for you, and if you upgrade within the first 7 days you'll receive your first month's membership at more than 50% off. I keep my membership active and recurring every month so I can be here for the people I refer like you, so realize that I'm putting my money where my mouth is here!

On top of that, if you upgrade to a premium membership at the discounted rate within the first 7 days I have a special bonus EXCLUSIVE to people that join WA through me and upgrade within the first week of creating their free account. This bonus will show you how to be twice as successful with WA or any other legitimate internet marketing program out there and gives you some very valuable video lessons (which I recorded for you personally, of course) to ensure you get off to the right step in your internet marketing business.

I keep a close watch on the list of people that upgrade from starter to premium, so I'll send the bonus your way within 24 hours. If you upgrade and don't receive it within that time frame for some reason, just post on my WA profile and let me know!

I don't offer that bonus so you'll spring for the membership and make me more money, I offer the bonus just in case you needed that tiny "push" to make sure you invest in this training because I know that you will use for the rest of your IM career and it could change your life. I've referred hundreds of people now and I have NEVER had anyone tell me they were dissatisfied.

Best of luck to you! You're about to embark on a journey that could change your life forever, so make sure you take it seriously, put in the time and effort, and expect great things in return!

You know where to find me,
Ian Pribyl
