About Carson2
Joined October 2018
Founder and CEO (retired) of Profit Concepts LLC. This was a retail consulting
firm specializing in cash flow marketing and advertising for over 20 years.
I have 35 years of retail and consulting experience.

Author of two self help manuals for retailers.

Adjunct Professor of communications. Taught public speaking, communications and theater.

Owner of Jennie B's Furniture Gallery

This was a full service furniture enterprise. We specialized in all family furnishings and decor. Responsibilities included purchasing, displays, advertising, marketing , inventory control, voice over radio commercials and on camera TV commercials.

Bachelor of Arts. Master of Science.

My goals are to offer my future customers retail affiliate contacts and to guide them to quality products. My business is to help customers find what they want.

Now. The most important person in my life-MY WIFE. What a gem! I could laud her, but folks you'd be here another year. There's nothing and no-one that comes before her. "Where two are yoked together, they become one".

We have four daughters and nine grand children. What a joy and we've only been married 15 years! What-you say? Yes, it's the second go around for both of us. What a blessing! Gosh, I hope she feels the same way...hmm? OOPS! Just a joke folks. She's been looking over my shoulder.

We enjoy reading. She reads and I listen. Fishing without bait is my favorite thing to do. I learned long ago I couldn't catch anything so what the heck?!

Trust you all will have the successes you're looking for.

Great goals! Creating goals is an important first step. After that, I suggest taking advantage of the well-designed and systematic training provided here at WA. When you have questions, don't be afraid to ask the talented and helpful mentors here for us.

Also, it is excellent that you are willing to make the time commitment to succeed. Good luck progressing toward your goals.

So awesome Carson, I know from experience that goals are what lead us to success. Work relentlessly in pursuit of these goals and they CAN and WILL happen.

In fact, wipe failure out of your mind right now. It simply won't happen. You have too much help, support and an entire community of help behind you to ever let that happen :)

If you need anything going forward, just let me known and I will be happy to give you a hand.

I am just trying to make sure this is the right move. I awoke to a member cancelling her premium membership, because the upper-levelers do not have time to answer our questions, as promised.

Are you able to find the answers elsewhere, easily? Do you have any insurmountable regrets about joining, premium?
Reply
Carson2
,
How long have you been a member?
How much time are you dedicating, weekly? What kind of income are you earning, in the top 50?

Do you have any regrets about purchasing the premium package? I see that we will have a difficult time getting the answers that we are being promised. Please share your thoughts, on this?

I read a WA review, that made it seem as though becoming a premium member, from the onset, would be a disadvantage. It eluded to the fact that I would not be capable of going back to "starter" mode and would then, consequently, lose some or all of the free training opportunities. Please share your thoughts?

Thanks, Carson, for leaving a message in my profile. I appreciate it very much. Instead of replying there, I prefer to reply here. I am still the same old, same old. Nothing much change. Just getting active lately with WA members.
Wow! ... Your resume is impressive. You are already successful in life and you have such a wonderful loving family ... 3 generations of family members staying together?
Isn't wonderful to be able to help people and at the same time helping ourself? Great for you.
Thanks again, Carson, for your caring and concern. All the best and success to you and your loved ones.

You sound like a person who has it all but is not ready to stop being active in all you do. I feel, as you probably do, that if we stop we would not survive. Welcome, belated, to WA. Also sounds like you have a great woman beside you. I am following you and hope you will do the same.

Hi Carson2. Thank you for following. My word you really are a Jack of all trades as well as a master of some. Maybe not in fishing, but certainly so in communications and marketing. Both essential skills in our modern online/techno driven societies. Definitely 2 skills I will be working on very hard in my WA business from now on.

Warm regards

Thanks for the laugh, Carson. I liked the one about fishing with no bait. You have quite the profile there Carson. My goodness, I'm glad you gave me something to laugh about before I left the page, otherwise, I would have probably taken up drinking or something else to get over the tremendous feeling of being an underachiever!

That said, I better get to work now while I still believe I have something to offer? :-)

Thank you for that Carson, you are very colorful indeed. I live alone and you have brightened up my evening.

Take care,

Just read your email. So I will look forward to working together. At this point, I can offer energy but not expertise. I tried affiliate marketing back in 2002-2004. That was not fun. To see someone today that took that enterprise and turn it into what you have built, both you and Kyle deserve the highest of praise. Adwords, Pay per Click, PPV all that stuff jangles my nerves even now. I could never figure out my Google account...and everytime I tried to log in it always left me still not logged in and still not making any money.
Tried MLM, lost a lot...then got busy not being on the internet for many years. So just now I am getting my feet wet. And happy to see that maybe nothing of that earlier time is still around.
That is just a bit of that aspect of my life. I put some more info on my page when I first joined.
Thanks again for this wonderful environment...

Your story rings a sympathetic bell, for I was married for 45 years when my first wife died of congestive heart failure. It took me three years to realize I like being married and I tied the knot with my neighbor down the street. But after 19 years,she declared her independence and I now live in an assisted living home. Becoming a WA marketeer is now my driving ambition and I love it. Best to you and yours. Bob

Thanks for adding me to your network, Carson. WA must be a gold mine with your experience. Sounds like you and I fish a lot alike too. I don't really care if I catch anything or not but I do love being on the beach and fishing is just another good excuse. lol

I have been known to set up everything on the beach and never actually get around to casting the rod, instead I get preoccupied with looking for shark's teeth and other fossils and forget about fishing altogether. lol

Hello Carson And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined and with your previous experience you will no doubt know by now that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve and there will always be something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 500+ blogs I have published within WA.

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

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Have a great day.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us. 

Wealthy Affiliate is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business. I tried to do this alone before and was completely lost. 

Now I know why. 

There are so many tricks of the trade and it saves so much time having it all laid out clearly in its training programs. 

Keep following the training and exercises every day. Give it a year to see significant results. You'll be a happy camper by then. We all make progress at different rates and it is possible to see meaningful results in 4-6 months. Google cannot be rushed. 

Google rewards people with websites that provide value to their visitors. It helps to boost their ad revenue of course! And that helps your websites get high rankings. But it takes time to build credibility. Once they realize your site is an authority site, good things will happen faster. 

When you get stuck, and you will, just ask for help in the discussion area located below each lesson. Scroll down to find it. Another member who has the answer will get back to you promptly. 

In the meantime have fun with the program. Much success to you.

Cheers!

Edwin

If you have a domain registered by yourself then you don't have to have site.rubix attached to your domain. But if you don't have a domain by yourself then you can use the free domains.

Hope this helps!

Hi - you are using a free site, so it is a Siterubix subdomain. If you want your own .com domain, you have to purchase it at a cost of around $13.99 per year.
Reply
Dave07 Premium
Siterubix is attached to the free domains you get here. To get rid of it you have to purchase your own domain name. You can buy it here on WA or through a registrar like namecheap. You can get domains for as little as 2-3 dollars but a decent .com will cost 12-15 dollars per year.
As a premium member you can host your domain and site here at WA.

When you purchase your own Domain, Wealthy Affiliate has a feature on the Website section that allows you to transfer your website data to your new one. I strongly suggest purchasing domain names from Wealthy Affiliate for several reasons. One being that it will cost you much less than elsewhere. And your Premium subscription includes free hosting.

Cheers.

Welcome and congratulations on becoming a Premium member! You have made a great decision and you will not regret it.

If you haven't already noticed, the community support is amazing and the training is just out of this world (well the internet world, lol).

Anyway, as the saying goes: You Only Live Once, so make this the best thing that has ever happened in your life.

I am happy to be part of your network and to be part of your story here at WA.

Hey Carson,

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)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(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 Carson and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)
