About BobWard
Joined September 2018
Hi! I'm a Grandpapreneur raising a couple of incredible grandchildren while attempting to find enough traction through internet marketing to replace a full-time income and make sure that we can give these "munchkins" a rich and full life experience.

I took early retirement 7 years ago when it became necessary to become a "stay at home" grandparent. At that time, I was able to continue to work on a part-time basis. However, in October of 2017 we were blessed with yet another grandchild and working outside the home just was no longer possible. I am now a full-time Grandpapreneur and "most-time" nanny for a beautiful, not quite 2 yr. old granddaughter. :-)

I was blessed to have had a very broad based work experience in both education and in private business. As I continue to build a business with my keyboard, I look to continue to teach and mentor others through the power of the internet.

I have struggled to learn internet marketing, have continued to fail and, typically, have succumbed to 'information overload'. There are a lot of "training" platforms out there, and you have to "kiss a lot of frogs" along the way but I was truly blessed to have stumbled upon Wealthy Affiliate!

Congratulations on going Premium.

I’ve found the weekly webinar very useful to watch and now that you’re a premium member you can too.

One tip though… be sure the topic being covered is what you need right now otherwise it won’t be the best use of your time.

If you can’t or don’t want to attend live, there’s always the recordings. (See “Live Events Classes” under Training on the left hand menu.

Wishing you every success with your business goals.

Hello! Welcome to WA Premium. The information available here is never ending!! And the training is Incredible!! Gobble it up!!!

Follow that training! I can not stress this enough. Do not skip around. Do the lessons in the order in which they are. As well as the tasks that follow each of those lessons.

Go at your pace. Slow and steady is my new rule. You'll find you can't wait to learn more in the following days. I did. There were a few lessons that I had to watch 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!

You CAN do this!!

Be awesome!! Be amazing!!! And be successful!!

Hey, Rob.....

Thanks for the contact. My first goal here is to actually make my very First dollar in online marketing! Goal #2 is to 'break even'. :-) #3 is to actually replace what would normally be a part time income.....somewhere in the range of $300-$500 a month. Those things would take me far beyond what I have been able to achieve to date. When I have succeeded in learning how to accomplish that, I can scale it to several thousand a month and beyond.

Hey Bob... you know, if you click Program Detail in the top menu you'll see WA publishes their conversion rates - one in every 8 free members upgrade to Premium. As a free member that pays a nice 20% commission and as a Premium member, 40%. I've been simply finding a great post or two every day, grabbing my affiliate link to that post and sharing it on my social media accounts and, sure enough, we are "converting" even better than 1 in 8 right. So as a Premium member... you get $23.40 per month so three signups breaks you even and spits out your first dollar in profits! Residual profits!!
