About BrianFord
Joined June 2016
When I retired, a little over ten years ago, I realized I wouldn't have the retirement income I needed to maintain my lifestyle. OUCH!! I have had a PC since 1980, way before most people. At this time I was living just North of NYC and worked close to IBM Headquarters. Thank goodness help was at hand. Vapor Lock is an automotive term but, is the one I used when my computer locked up during my learning process.

FAST FORWARD

Internet marketing is a passion of mine as I was formerly in industrial marketing engineer. Now retired, I've spent the last ten years on the internet. This is like comparing apples to oranges. There is a very little comparison, to say the least. Going online, I found what I thought was a good opportunity, sign up and started my learning curve. It was expensive with trips to Dallas and Tampa Bay and paying for expensive leads. A friend of mine had made about a million dollars in 12 months. I thought I should at least be able to make 10% of what he made. WRONG!! There was a lot more I had to LEARN!!

TWO YEARS LATER

Guess what?? I ended up joining my friend Jim who had made that million dollars on the internet and have been with him for the past 8 years learning what I needed to know. Along the way, I was in and out of a number of business opportunities that were altimately failures or they went out of business. Be careful what you get into. Following the Silver Ball can cost you time and money, believe me!!

Most people fail on the internet because it's too technical and there has been a lack of training or/ they haven't made any money. I was a product of both of these challenges but, with perseverance I've hung in there and been able to help other people reach GOALS!! What if you could turn both of those negatives to positives?? So my challenge is to help my colleagues eliminate their two largest monthly expenses, mortgages and car payment.

I've recently found some very good training within the WEALTHY AFFILIATE program that helps you build a website with Wordpress.
The training is excellent so far and I look forward to launching my new website soon. In the past, I've had websites that were not ranking very well or not profitable at all.

So now I am here to correct these issues and help people reach their GOALS!!

Goals are the beginning of success. No matter where they lie they are the foundation. Your goals in particular are quite high and that's because we should never shoot for less than what we deserve. It will take a lot of hard work and finding the right products that will bring that desired income, but its possible. and worth the effort

Awesome goals Brian, and congrats on getting close to $10k/month. I'm sure you'll be hitting your goals soon, and wishing you all the best with achieving them.

Excellent Brian, I know you will achieve your goals. As you start seeing more progress and results, you will be able to spend more time on your business.

When I started out online, I had limited time because I was in school full time and I was able to achieve "full time" status within the online business world in a year. I totally understand that we all have "time" issues in life, but I absolutely know you can do the same and accomplish the same sort of success!

Take action on the training here, immerse yourself within the community, and ask for help when you need it. This is your sure path to your own personal goals and successes Brian! :)

Brian, nice to hear from you. Well I am certainly looking forward to reading your new website when you launch it. I need all the help I can get. I am one of those people who is not a compulsive buyer and I tend to avoid obvious marketers. Not good when I want to be one, but not an obvious, obnoxious type!.

I tell a story around the item I am writing about and provide ways for people to get things IF THEY want to. I live in hope that this is a viable option. One of the many positive things about WA is how they encourage this helpful, informal approach. I am so glad I found it.

Great profile of yours.

Happy travelling here and do keep in touch.

Hello Brian and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
There's lots of help here within WA for Newbies and not so newbies.

As you have probably found out by now or will soon enough internet marketing can be a steep learning curve. Therefore can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
I'm sure you will go away with lots of tips and advice.
Thank you for the follow as well and I will follow you.
Remember, you get stuck creating your site or anything else, you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

Hi Again Brian it’s a good idea, but only if you want to, to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you do like will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your day.

Brian, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Brian.

Hello Brian, ♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under training (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

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! :)

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.
