About Bryan8
Joined February 2018
Hey y'all! I'm an older conservative Christian guy trying to come into the late 20th century. Yes, you read that right. I was a truck driver for many years and the only computer course that I ever took used punch cards and Fortran to run a program...... I could find email and do web searches, but other than that I was pretty much lost.

Update: After going through the certification course I've got a website up and working! It's amazing how fast you can learn at WA and the community support is GREAT. The live training with Jay is very informative. Thanks Jay! You are a great communicator of knowledge.

I am now disabled and unable to work a "normal job." After working for over 45 years the government doesn't even give me enough to pay my medical expenses, so I MUST figure out a way to do better.

I've heard that it's possible to make money online, so here I am. I don't need to be a millionaire, but if I feel up to going out to dinner I'd like to be able to do so without worrying about the bill or saying which do you prefer Burger King or McDonald's. I'm willing to learn and will probably ask some stupid questions (see punch card comment above). Please bear with me and any help that anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated.

My next goal is to get lots of content onto my site and then begin to monetize that site. I signed up on WA on 2/25/18 and I now see that there is an entire other world here. I'm glad to be part of it. Thanks to all of those who have made me feel welcome.

To the disabled and elderly this is truly a caring community. The members that are here will do their best to help you succeed. They won't do the work for you, but they will help (and push) you to be able to do it yourself. If you're a premium member and need help you can pm me and I'll do my best to help you or find an answer for you.

To the young people that come here, take this opportunity and run with it! You have the ability to be very comfortable by following the training and tasks given here. You want to travel the world? You can do it by following what is taught here. I truly wish that I discovered this (WA) years ago.

I wish each and every one that reads this the best of luck in your online journey.

Hello Bryan, I am an old man married to my beautiful soul mate for 65 years. I am disabled to the point that I have to use a wheel chair and walker, but being a sole proprietor I work 24/7.

I have been a premium member of WA for four years and really appreciate what they stand for - helping people to be successful.

Please visit my personal site. raybrannum.com. There you can learn about me and also find possible affiliate sites that I have found to be free to join and honest in their business dealings.


I am interested in exploring your site please post it.

Hi Bryan,

I appreciate you following me and I'm following you back. You're not alone.

I'm old enough to remember telex machines and when calculators were rather heavy simple adding devices taking up a large amount of space on the desk.

If I can figure this out, anyone can!

Good luck on your journey here at Wealthy Affiliate.

Regards,

Howard

Thanks Howard! One of my first jobs was at the phone company and they were just removing the telex machines when I started.

I also remember the first calculators, and how my ex-boss said that he would never trust them. He liked his very old adding machine. I don't know if he ever got a calculator.....

Wishing all of us success at WA and in life!

Thanks for the follow back Bryan. Have you ever seen a desk with the remnants of the punch cards. We did that to a supervisor we did not like, boy was he mad.

Hi Bryan, me again Barry, I need some guidance with writing content. I have some suggestions examples about what questions I should be asking myself in order to create my about me post or page. But Feel I cant expand on them with my background to draw from. And I feel this is the standard I should be shooting for the be competitive.

Here are the questions.

1 What value do you give to your readers?

2 Who is your blog intended for?

3 How does your ideal reader write? (i.e. Are they funny + spunky, classy + professional,
encouraging + sweet?) Write in this way!

4 Why should someone read your blog? What will they get out of your posts?

5 Which types of posts do you write? Are there any series that your readers should know

6 Why does your blog have credibility? (i.e. Why should someone listen to you?).

7 What is your personal bio as it relates to your blog?

8 What are some relatable facts about yourself that you can include in your bio? These will
help your ideal reader connect with you even more

9 What will your Call to Action (CTA) be? Tie your CTA into the rest of your About Page. For
example, "Want our best small business advice each week? Subscribe to our newsletter! You’ll
get a free PDF with our top ten business tips, too!

With this as my criteria and if i want to it properly somehow I have to answer these. If you get my drift.

Thanks Bryan for any help you can offer.

Hello Bryan, I owe you some thanks. After our discussions a couple of weeks ago I evaluated how much time I'm actually spending on my Wealthy Affiliate training and I can see that it is not nearly enough to accomplish much of anything. Part of the reason is that I've been dependent on the local libraries to use because I don't have internet on my (antique) computer. I thought it would cost hundreds of dollars to buy a new computer that can access the internet, but when I went to a local computer store a few days ago they told me that a "tablet" only costs $49 and can access the internet for my Wealthy Affiliate training. After I get back on the internet later this week, I will be able to spend all afternoon, all evening and half the night on my WA training if I want to. That should greatly speed up the process and get a lot more done a lot more quickly. Thanks again, Bryan. Hope all is well with you. All the best, Paul

Hey Paul! No thanks necessary. I really do try to be helpful as much as I can. As for the financial challenges, believe me I understand that 100%. Every month is a delicate balancing act for me. I really can't afford WA, but I also know that in my present physical condition nothing is going to change if I don't stay here. In short, I have no choice but to make this work.

I truly hope that the tablet will help you out in your journey to be successful. It will certainly beat the library! If there's ever anything that you just don't understand, need a hand with, want advice, or just need a word of encouragement PLEASE feel free to ask me. I'll do my best to at least get you pointed in the right direction.

I'm just sorry that we got started off on the wrong foot. It happened to be during one of my worst periods of pain and I was shorter than I normally am with my answers.

Wishing you nothing but success!
Bryan

Yes ma'am. The human mind can be a powerful force for good or evil.

It seems lately that some people tend to focus on the evil side. I look at it like this, we can go through life laughing or crying. I don't like wiping away tears, so I'll choose laughing whenever I can!

It's easier on the soul too.

May you experience many blessings on this journey that we call life.

Hey Bryan,

Thanks for adding me to your follow list, I've added you to mine.

So you're a former truck driver I see. That's what I do for a living too, but I was recently involved in an accident with another semi truck that slammed behind me leaving me with 5 herniated discs and tomorrow I'll be getting my first epidural injection on my spine, OUCH! just the thought of it makes me cringe, but anyway, I just want to get better, but I'm having the time of my life with this new internet marketing platform called Wealthy Affiliate.

You're right, the community is awesome and I'm learning as much as I can before I get back on the road.

I want to get this started so that I'll have something to work on when I'm taking my breaks. This is going to be my exit from trucking and hopefully, I can get it off the ground to help other truckers like yourself.

Wishing you the best and I'll be seeing you around buddy.

God bless and be safe

Rick

Rick, epidurals aren't too bad. I've had 7 of them. I also had a spinal stimulator implanted for nerve pain. They wanted to do back surgery on me for several reasons, but my answer was, "Not unless I wind up in a wheelchair." I still stand by that statement. I know of too many people that have had problems from back surgeries.

WA will work, BUT it's not fast income. ALWAYS keep that in your mind. It will work, but it takes time. There's no hidden upsell here either.

Once you go premium the only other expense is buying your domain name(s). Yes, you can buy premium themes, plug-ins, etc, but you don't need to do any of that.

I recommend that you use one of your free siterubix sites as a test site. Load it up with all of the same stuff that you have on your site, theme, plug in, some nonsense content, etc. Then if you want to try to change something try it there first. If it's going to cause problems let the problems be on your test site only. If it works out okay there for a week or two THEN you can install it on your site that the public sees.

If you run into any problems, issues, or just need a word of encouragement feel free to pm me. I'll be glad to help out if I know the answer, and if I don't know it I'll find it for you if you can't. I'm home 24/7 except for doctor visits and hospital tests (many) so, I've got the time.

Be safe out there, there are a lot of crazies and not just in 4 wheelers anymore......

Outstanding Bryan, I'll definitely take you up on your offer and ask for help and advice if I get stuck. I'm not a complete noob to internet marketing, I just never had the guidance to get moving forward. I am aware that this isn't a quick money maker, I am happy just learning and getting things to work and go live online. I know it takes time, so I'm patient enough to go for the long haul, hehe, seems like we truckers just have a play with words, but anyway, I'm in it till I make it.

Glad to have met you, Bryan, I'm here for ya as well buddy.

I just like to warn people. As you are here for a while you'll see people that want to leave after a month or two because they aren't making money.

I think they've been watching too many late night commercials ;-) kinda luck the, "Earn big bucks, drive big trucks" commercials from several years ago
Reply
Ricargon Premium
Oh yea, I hear ya. Well, I can tell you this, If I don't come back anymore it's not because I got tired of it. This is the only place where I've actually created a blog post and put it online.

The training is great and up to date. It just keeps things flowing as I keep learning. Those truck advertisements still exist. Make .65 cpm and take home 55k to 65k for company drivers, uh yea right.

They'd probably get me if I was in my 20's naive and gullible, but I've been through so many experiences that I know that you can't get something for nothing. You either work hard at it or look for something else to make it happen, but nobody will ever want to make it easy for you or they wouldn't be pushing whatever scam they're selling you to take your money and run.

I'm looking forward to having a great learning experience here and lots of fun meeting other entrepreneurs like yourself.

How do you tell when a recruiter/dispatcher is lying?

I'm sure that you know the answer......
Reply
Ricargon Premium
The answer to that is when everything they say sounds perfect.

I've had my share of dispatchers but I work with one that communicates effectively with me and things run smoothly. In the beginning, we hashed it out and butted heads, then he realized that I was relying on him to get things done and what he said affected both him and me.

I don't blame him though, it doesn't start with him as he has to deal with brokers who in essence have the same issue of making everything sound perfect.

So it trickles down till it gets to the one who has to do the dirty work.

I've been trucking for 15 years now and I'm sure I haven't heard it all.

For sure these recruiters can sell the gullibles a hell of a deal or "heaven on earth!" I worked a couple short stints for 2 large trucking companies! I was retired and got tired of doing nothing; and love to drive and decided to get a CDL and the rest is history! Anyway, I wish you all the best and may GOD Bless you!

Yes sir! When I talk to wannabe's one on one I tell them to expect a lie anytime the recruiters, or your first dispatcher's, lips are moving.

Of course, they aren't all like that, but a healthy dose of skepticism is warranted until they prove themselves. It's too prevalent in the industry for this to be a natural occurrence.

Hello, I am a green horn as well. I knew very little about computers except how to google something. Sorry to hear about your disability. The small town I live in has little to no jobs to work at so paying my bills must come from somewhere else. Hope to make enough at this to get by. Have one website and two blogs on it and just started to put ads on both blogs to try and make some dough. If you need any help please get in touch. If I can help you I will give it a shot. My problem now is trying to get traffic to my site. So more research is needed. Good to hear from you and hope you do really well!

Hey Hennry! Thanks for the follow, I'm following you now too. After reading your profile here the best thing that I can tell you is to follow the training and do each task as it comes up.

Make a little bit of progress at a steady rate and soon enough you'll find yourself where you want to be. Yes, content creation is time consuming, but it is what will bring you the benefits in the end.

People have to trust you before they will even consider buying what you are selling. It will start slowly, but at some point in time the floodgates will open and that will make you a very happy person.

Best of luck to you.

I've been through Kansas quite a bit in the truck. Had the worst scare of my trucking life there. I spent the night sleeping in a rest area and woke early the next day to make my delivery. When I went back past the rest area a couple of hours later all of the trucks that were still there had been blown over by the wind! I can't imagine being asleep and waking up to your truck rolled over and you crumpled up on the side wall of your truck. Got lucky that day and the Lord had His angels watching over me.

And you thought the tornado was made up in the Wizard of Oz? KS has STRONG winds whether a tornado or not.. Hot one day, cold the next. We've got it all and can even raise or fall in temp. in a few hours. That's why we always say if you don't like the weather, wait an hour and it will change! I'd still take tornadoes over hurricanes any day!Tornado watches/warnings last a few hours, hurricanes a few days! Been through a tornado as a kid and 1 as an adult when I moved away and had a family. It is kind of neat to see tornado wreckage in an unplanted field of dirt, but not devastating enough to make the news. Touched down in the field across the road from our house, went back up then came back down in the trees 1 mile away where my brother-in-law and his wife were building a house at the time. Never hurt the house but tore up the trees! Mother nature is kind of interesting!!

Have a good day! I need to get some work done today!

Hello Bryan 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 up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

My father has to take care of my mother 24/7 and lives of of Social Security which is nearly impossible.

My father is about 75 years old but I would like for him to start like you have. I know it would take him some time and he would have to learn a lot from the training here but it can be done.

I encourage you to go through the training and don’t worry about asking a lot of questions.

Hey Rick! Thanks for the kind words. Encourage your dad, us older guys need a little prodding sometimes....

Hi Bryan - I think things got misunderstood on the chat today - typing in bits can be so impersonal.

I wanted to stop by and say I am sorry if we got off on the wrong foot! I'll see you around in here and I wish you all dinners out you can imagine.

Heather, I have nothing against you or anyone else for that matter. I don't like conflict (health reasons) and therefore will always choose to avoid it.

I was merely pointing out, in honesty, that it was a sales site. I don't enter any info in sales sites that I don't know anything about. I won't make any more comments in live chat for a while, kinda left a bad taste in my mouth.

I thought this was a place to help each other, but apparently I was wrong.

You're not wrong about this being a place to help each other. I have found nothing but helpful people here. I wish you all the best and if you ever need any help, please ask.

Thank you Bryan for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. When first starting your affiliate marketing website many members have problems coming up with niche ideas.

Probably the one main problem is that people tend to over-think the simple process of finding a niche. Just sit back and look around you. You have niches everywhere. You are even wearing different niches.

Though it is important to fully understand that any niche can be profitable, there are certain niche markets that will be more profitable than others. You might think that the market is saturated but there is plenty of room to earn.

The niches in these 2 types of profitable categories (Evergreen and Passions) are plentiful and broad. Like all niches they will need to be narrow and focused. The more they are, the more profitable they become.

I created a tutorial that explains the differences in these two groups and provide you with many niche and sub niche ideas for each category. If you are having problems choosing a niche, click the link below.

Congratulations on going premium Bryan!

This is when you start your new life. Envision yourself a year from now. Your future self will be patting yourself on the back. Think about the regular schedule you will follow to make your dreams become a reality. Take the little bit of extra time to lay it out. You will save time down the road, so you can focus on what really matters.

Best of luck to you!

Alex, Thanks for the advice on envisioning the future me and taking the time to plan. Planning this is the hard part for me since I have no experience. It's kind of like being told as a truck driver that your next load was going to El Paso but not being told that it was an oversized load that required permits, routing, and escort vehicles. That kind of thing changes plans quickly!

Once I can figure out the landscape I'm sure that I'll be fine. It's the early stuff that makes you crazy.

Hey Bryan,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)

(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Bryan and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

What's up Bryan!

I just thought I'd not only welcome you, but also help you get started on the right track so that you're not confused with anything like you probably already are.

First off, you'll want to put a pic up (preferably of yourself) and say a little something about you so it can be easier for others to help you, which you can do by clicking on the little square with a question mark up on the right.

Starting out, there are only 2 things you really need to know.

1. People who TAKE ACTION by asking questions and interacting within the community are much more likely to be successful and learn this stuff faster than someone who joins and does nothing.

2. The level 1 certification course (green tab to the left) will explain the process of how to make money online and you should have a pretty solid foundation built by the end of this course as well.

By lesson 4 you should have your first site up and running, which I'm sure you'll find to be an accomplishment on its own.

Click the link below to get started on your first lesson and you'll be on your way. Also don't forget that if you have any questions, just ask as everyone is here to help.

I hope this helps Bryan and welcome to the wonderful community here at WA, which I'm sure you're going to love!

- John
