About CowboyJames
Joined September 2016
Hello my name is James and I am an alcoholic. I have said these words in many venues and a couple states. I no longer follow the program. I have, amazingly control of my drinking. Sounds impossible, but is true.
In 2006 I became disabled.

I have spent the last three years improving myself. Lost 50 lb and quit smoking.
do strength training three times a week.
I am here to improve my financial picture.
Really don't have much computer/internet savvy. but I do have time and desire. Hope that will be enough.

Hi James, I am happy to hear that you have your drinking under control. One of my brothers was a functioning alcoholic but he gave it all up about 7 years before he passed from this world.

WA is the best place to learn from because I never was a tech, savvy person either. But if I can do it then you can too.

Warmest Regards!

I have one thing to say about addiction, if you do that is fine, but if it does you, it is not. I have done about everything in the getting high kind of thing, but I know when to quit. If you can't do that stay away from it. That is all I have to say about that subject. Now to why we are here, to make money online, right. Watch the training and ask questions, you will succeed. I hope this has told you my life and if you will please like my comments, thanks Sruffey.

Hi James. I’m John and I’m an alcoholic too. Haven’t been to a meeting for years but have no desire to drink. I clicked on you profile because I really like the logo. Best of luck on the Vegas thing. That’s a long way off for me. Glad to follow you.
CowboyJames Premium
Nice to meet you John. Thank you for following . I'm glad you liked the logo, this one and one other I have are about tied for favorite.

I still harbor that desire for a drink, not like it used to be, that I can be thankful for. Taking care of myself is more important.

Have a great weekend!

Dear James, it is a pleasure to meet you, and will enjoy the pleasure of following and helping you out if I know the answer.

You are already and winner, and know that you have overcome something that most people do not have the power to do. It claims families, health, jobs, and so forth.

You are strong by taking the steps you did to better your life, and pursue something that, you know you have to put time into.
My recommendation: I too am not as savvy as I would like to be, but at 61, I learn everyday about social media, and the internet.

This is by far the best training anyone can learn from, and build an amazing following of friends, and hopefully family, that want all of us to achieve success! YOU WILL NEVER BE ALONE. I can promise you that.

Please respond with what is you niche, or if you have come up with one yet, and where are you from? I like to get to know my followers, and know what parts of the world they are from. I am a California girl. lol
I love to meet people, and can not wait to see where this journey will be by the end of this year.

Much success to you, and lets keep the following!

Thank you Carla. I am a Pa guy. living in the northeast, Carbondale. I am 64, 65 next month. Wait till you get there, undated with offers for extra Medicare coverage. It is unreal at times.
I joined here in Sept. 2016, quite frankly I have not worked at tis for about 1.5 years even though I am coming up at 3 years.

I know what I need to be successful here.
Have trouble doing it, No Focus.

But I have decided I will continue doing what is needed, until I succeed here. Since I take good care of myself, I figure I have another 20-25 years to make that happen.

Thanks Carla
hoping this finds you well, heading for success.
CarlaNavarro Premium
Glad to read your response. FOCUS is key if you do it little by little you.ll be fine. Naybe an hr at a time

Hi James.
That is enough. At WA you will find all the training, help and encouragement you need and want.

Good luck and success will build on your success. Getting it wrong is just another way of learning. The only failure is if you give up. I will follow your progress with interest.

Hi, Cowboy James. . Nice to meet you. I enjoyed reading your bio. Congratulations on your sobriety and quitting smoking. Sounds like you're on the right track now with the healthy lifestyle you described. Welcome to my network. Thanks for following me back.

You mentioned that you are not very computer savvy. If you're having difficulties, I'm sure someone in the community can help you. I'm a technoidiot, and have received a TON of help from several people who have become my go to gurus when I need help.

Best wishes for your online success here in WA.

Hi James,

I see you are a SWAG, I left you a comment on site comments on the post about Mary Kay. Please do not be afraid to edit the last bit if you need to, I just couldn't find a link to Wealthy Affiliate from your post.

Good post, I enjoyed it!


PS Best become "friends" now hey

Hi Cowboy, or do you prefer James? ;-)
How are you doing now? I hope you're still going strong, and becoming more internet savvy :-)
I noticed for myself that this is a great community and I hope it is helping you in improving your financial picture.

All it really takes is time and motivation, and a lot of work/learning. But as long as you're keeping to your interests, that should be fun!
FrankieTrill Premium

Hello James,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun at WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition to the Walkthrough called "After The Walkthrough". Also 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. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I just wrote my 102nd training for WA. I have categorized them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hi James, thanks for following me and I am following you back. You are very inspiring as I know how hard it is quitting being an ex smoker myself. You would be great advisor for people trying to give up drinking and smoking as you are dedicated to succeeding and that is a great gift to share with others in need. Wishing you all the best.
CowboyJames Premium
Thank you for the kind words. Helping people with my blog is my intent.
cwelliver Premium
Good day, James. I must say that what attracted me first to you was your name alone. After all doesn't every little kid want to be a cowboy when he grows up? But then I read your profile and that really caught my attention having had family members that have dealt with such issues.

If you can maintain your sobriety for that extended period of time then you surely do have what it takes to make a success of this here at WA. Looks like you have been at it for about 10 months now, just curious how it is going for you.
CowboyJames Premium
Not making any money, but not giving up either. I missed a lot os training, thinking I knew enough. I did not! Surprising? Working on my training and following as best I can.
I have a lot of down time due to my disability. I try to ignore it and then it just bites me.
I'll get where I want to be, I won't stop.
cwelliver Premium
Anytime you feel as though you need a little push along or a pull too the finish line I would be glad to lend a hand, which niches are you working in?
CowboyJames Premium
Lifestyle change blog and also a site extra cash online. I am working exclusive on the blog at this point. Was spinning my wheels and getting nowhere try to handle both at this point.
juanvalles Premium
Thanks for the follow, James. Congrats on your amazing control of drinking. If you can achieve that you can be great at many other things in your life as I'm sure you've become aware of the strength and ambition required to move forward through challenges. If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a line. Good luck!
GeniusALL Premium

I could always use a little motivation. Thanks Alex

James, 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 James.
CowboyJames Premium
Thank you Kyle, I did get sidetracked there. my goals to get my first website up, were a little to ambitious, to say the least. I am re-committed, reset my goals and anxious to move ahead. earn some green. Thanks again
Kyle Premium
Awesome James, definitely can and will happen with some effort. If you ever do need a hand with anything moving forward do let me know. ;)

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! :)
