About BobMargroff
Joined July 2018
Updated Jan 8, 2019:

Hi! I am Bob. I am happily married with one daughter my wife and I adopted in 2011 from China. Both of us worked after we married. My wife, Karen, was a school teacher and I work as a CNC machine operator for a bearing manufacturing company in Sumter, South Carolina I am an hourly employee and have been employed with the same company for 26+ years. The overtime was great and lasted almost 4-6 years. Now, in the last year or so, as most companies try to cut back on the overtime by hiring more people to do the jobs. So, I have found myself in a position to find additional income.

I do not have any experience with affiliate marketing except what I have learned here since July 2018. When I hit upon WA, it was totally by accident from a link through an attempt to sign up with what I thought was an online payment system called PaySpree. Only to be sent here by a redirect. So, signing up was totally by accident. But, once here I realized that this was the best thing that ever happened to me (besides my marriage to my wife of course).

I have tried many different ways to make money as side gigs. I even attempted an MLM company after 3 years with the bearing plant, but it did not seem like my "type of thing". So, as a result of the decreasing overtime and my wife no longer working as a teacher. I have been putting the time in here to learn more about affiliate marketing and look forward to making my website a success. My wife has a pet sitting business with a website that I built for her on iPage, but now I have since moved it here and WA is now hosting that page.

I originally signed up and was paying monthly, and when I got a letter in the mail from PayPal offering me the credit I ran with it. I have since signed up using the Black Friday yearly deal with the PayPal credit. I have mine and my wife's website here and am taking advantage of the methods I have learned here.

And to tie it all together, I hope to be successful with my website and my wife's...with her help eventually. So that I will no longer have to punch a time clock, do more for myself and be able to spend more time with my wife and daughter.

So I am looking forward to moving on to a bigger and better future with Wealthy Affiliates...and saying goodbye to punching a clock to earn a paycheck.

I wish you all the best,
Bob

Really good to see that you've added some goals Robert!

These are both realistic and achievable. Your time investment will be key to achieving these goals and you certainly are willing to invest the time :)

Take your time, take action on what you learn, and ask for help when you need it! There are many helpful folks within the Wealthy Affiliate community who have the answers you will be looking for. I personally look forward to helping out in every way I can.

Hi Bob, I'm following you. Hope I can become as productive as you have been this last year! My health is good now. I am recovered from Congestive Heart Failure, a year ago. Vitamin B1 thiamine could have prevented it.
Looking forward to getting to know you, and grow at WA with you!

Thank you Bob. You never know who will bring the spark to your life around here, but some one always has it, the spark of encouragement and sweetly wants to share it.
I mostly have been a social butterfly this last year. One year to heal from Congestive Heart Failure.
Also, I got help to search and find what I really want to do with my life to help others. Yes I found it! And all the seemingly unconnected stuff I voraciously studied, well it fits together perfectly.
Geez, I need to update my profile.
Thank YOU Bob. We all get more clarity and practice being better writers by commenting to each other.
Have a wonderful day!

Welcome to my WA network. Your story is probably indicative of many of today's hourly paid workers. I know my husband went through several lay-offs in his day. Ultimately his last layoff "was not discriminating because of age! Yes, he had to sign a statement to that effect, in exchange for a lousy $1400. I guess we can say "At least he got that." LOL

Many many warm wishes of great success in your WA journey.
Linda

BobMargroff Premium
Wow, what a bummer. I am not in a layoff status and currently am working full time...it's just that our overtime I have been relying on is hit and miss. So, I started this as a way to supplement and once it increases beyond my hourly pay...bye bye hourly job. :-)

Take care and I wish you the best!

Good morning to you, Bob, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I’m following you back.
I’m a printer by trade and my job operating an offset web press will soon be in jeopardy in lieu to be replaced with a digital press operated by a younger less experienced person. That is the main reason I’m here to learn the skills I will need to continue to earn an income well into retirement.
I look forward to working with you and helping you find success. I wish you much success and satisfaction in your online journey.

Best of luck with all your future plans. Sounds good to me. I think the only way to ever have a chance of making any sort of "real money",,, for a lot of us is to work 4 yourself,, not some1 else, it just takes making the decision and having the belief and commitment to follow through. Fair play to ya. Lemme know if I can be of any help to ya.

Hi KyleAnn, thanks for following me back. I happen to be going thru my network and happen to notice that I see many posts and/or comments from you, but yet haven't followed you yet. ???? I have no idea why, just one of those things. I am now and I appreciate the advice. I have been attempting to do just that for the past 5 months and will continue to do so.

Not to worry, the first 6 months are a bit overwhelming! I’m still working on the training myself, just about to complete level 4 and begin level 5 of the OEC.

And thanks for making me part of your network also

I believe you got this, always go back to the WHY you started.
and it will get you through the tough times

MLM is a lot of RAH RAH and it has it place,

This is more individual and skill based.

Also much cheaper just the investment of your time.

Keep moving forward and reach out if you need help.

BobMargroff your words convey exactly what I was feeling recently my profile picture is me at 23 on my wedding day , I am now 57 , i found myself saying , I not going to work for just above minimum wage till I retire, and these days you get people still working in their retirement, Wealthy Affiliate gives people the opportuniy to have more control over their lives, make their own choices, and freedom from pay day to pay day
Reply
BobMargroff Premium
This is so true with many. There are people I work with at my “hourly wage job” that are late into their 50’s and 60’s. They retire and then what? Enjoy the last few years trying to things that they are too old to enjoy. I do not want to be in that boat.

So, there is the reason I am here!

Btw, thanks for the follow...I will now follow you back.

I wish you the best!

Hi, Robert.

Thanks for following me and joining my network; I've returned the compliment and followed you back.

I read your Bio, and I feel your pain. I am also fed up with the nine til five grid. I want my freedom back. I realise now that the way to this freedom is in helping others. I believe the more you give, the more you will receive.

I see you've been with us a few months now. How is it going?

You are welcome to PM me if you wish. I have nothing to sell, so you've no fear there. I will always give you my honest opinion.

I've been a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate over 18 months now, and I don't regret one day!

Keep moving ahead. However your day may be, take a little step forward. Some days you'll make significant strikes, other days you will not, but do something every day, however small in building your business.

You will read many stories of WA members succeeding with their online goals. Some have achieved this in a few months, for others, it has taken a couple of years. The common theme for those that have reached their goals is taking action. Everyone who has succeeded has taken small steps every day. Do something, however tiny, every day, and you will reach your goal.

Pace yourself and enjoy your journey.

Best wishes,
Paul.
Be Happy!

Hello Bob And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring to the training.
If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 440+ blogs I have published within WA.

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

Have a great day.
