About CharlesHamby
Joined March 2016
Technical trainer, Bible teacher, private pilot, wannabe golfer, world traveler, Navy veteran, working until I croak but having fun while doing it!

I work for Siemens as a technical trainer and spend a great deal of time in airports and hotels. I love the training part of my job but not so much the mechanics of getting to where I need to be.

I write a weekly blog that I publish on Google + and am writing a book about my experiences when I was a full time pastor.

I hope to find a way to make money online to support myself should I be forced to retire sooner than I plan. I also have 15 years of brick and mortar business experience as an entrepreneur from 1979 to 1994 and understand what it takes to succeed at any endeavor. It seems to me that online is the way to go to avoid the overhead and operating expense required to hang a shingle on a real building. It is much more cost effective to hang a virtual shingle if one can make it pay.

So far, it seems to me that knowledge is power to operate a successful online enterprise.

God bless!

Hi There, thanks for following me - it's nice to meet you here at WA!

Herewith some motivation for you.

“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.”
― Confucius

Here you will be able to reflect on the success of others, you will be able to imitate what the successful members are doing and you will experience it for yourself here at WA

If you ever need anything, have questions to ask, thoughts to share or just want to chat – just send me a message and I will try to help as best I can.

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?". lol

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 at me! :)

Hello Charles and welcome to wealthy affiliate.

Thank you Robert. How long have you been blogging and have you monetized any of your sites yet? Charles...

Robert-A Premium
Hello Charles
I have been in affiliate/internet marketing for quite a few years now and if you read my profile you would see I have had 100+ sites which I built to sell on.
This was simply a way to give people a basic site for what they wanted to do and they of course added their own content that was fit for their own ends.
I have 3 sites within WA and two of them promote WA so there are only links on them back to WA and related to various aspects of affiliate/internet marketing. Much like my blogs within WA.
My other site is simply a weight loss site which I don't spend a lot of time on. This is the only one that is monetized for an income outside WA.
Hope this answers your question.
Enjoy your Sunday.
Robert

Hello Charles, Welcome! Nice to meet you, 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 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

Hey and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. I'm sure that you will find the platform helpful. If there is one thing I would say is to ensure that you take advantage and soak in as much as you can (without being overwhelmed of course)-- in your first few weeks (first 7-days especially.)

Take it in at your learning pace though, you know?
