Hello my fellow Wealthy Affiliates!

I'm Norm Van, a local home grown Southern California native. I am married to my lovely wife, Sheila, and we have a daughter, Crystal, who's grown up. Our parents still live in L.A. County, but we reside in Orange County now.

Sheila and I are aspiring entrepreneurs who have tried a variety of business ventures. To paraphrase Mr. Robert Kiyosaki, "Unless you're willing to fail 9 times and make the final 10th attempt for a successful business venture, then you shouldn't try being an entrepreneur." So I guess we must be getting close to our success story! l.o.l.

We are excited that Wealthy Affiliate has created a user friendly system to learn about and be active in e-commerce. A few years ago we attempted to get involved, but the only kind of training available were a bunch of 'gurus' selling their training programs with coaching as an additional fee. None of them seemed completely simple to learn or use and the help available was somewhat satisfactory. Needless to say, we didn't get very far and put those projects on the back burner.

Now that we found Wealthy Affiliate we are ready to try again, especially since I have more time to take advantage of using my computer and internet access. We hope that at this time 'this is the right place at the right time' for a change!

Please be so kind to be available to assist me in our renewed endeavor and we will do the same for you. Take care and thank you for spending the time to learn more about me.

May God bless you today!

Norm

Money Goals
QUESTION #1: How much money would you be happy earning?
ANSWER #1: Making $40k-$45k per year or $21-$25 per hour.

QUESTION #2: How much would you be ecstatic earning?
ANSWER #2: Making $60k-$90k per year or $32-$47 per hour.

QUESTION #3: And how much TIME are you willing to invest to achieve these goals?
ANSWER #3: Working part time or full time: 20-40 hours per week.

Since I'm looking for a job currently, I have some time to work on a project, if it will make me potential income. If it does and it equals or surpasses what a job will pay me, then I'd rather be my own boss!

Norm, I LOVE WA! I have never found so many people who are geared toward moving their lives forward like you are! I cannot tell you how many times I ask people if they are familiar with Kiyosaki or RDPD and the answer is no... Too many!

Your site is looking very good btw!
