About CraigO1
Joined October 2017
Hello, I'm Craig, 68 years old and retired so lots of time to do different things. I'm a US Army veteran and love to read and listen to music. I have been married to my wife Katie for 39 years and we have one daughter and 4 grand children. Being retired leaves me with opportunities to do a lot of things I could not do when I worked. Currently I volunteer for our local police department as a victim advocate which is quite interesting and fulfilling.

My main hobby is buying and selling vinyl records. I currently have a Ebay store where I list records I am currently selling. It's not a big money maker but more of a fun hobby. I've been reading about affiliate marketing and decided to invest some time and see if I can make it work well enough to supplement my retirement income. I'm not looking to become a millionaire but rather pick up a thousand or two a month to allow me to do a little extra than I currently am.

Anyway I'm not all that good at talking about myself so I suppose I'l let this go as is, at least for now.

Hi Craig. Thank you very much for your help. I finally figured out how to convert a post to a page. Your idea of making both "About Me" and "Privacy Policy" as pages is brilliant. It solved my problem.
You are a genius!

I will often check your posts. I know I will learn a lot from you. Thanks again.

You're quite welcome Emma. Glad I could help. I'm pretty new and don't know a lot yet but I had to do the same thing when working on my page so I figured that was your problem as well. Glad it helped.

Best to you,
Craig

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! :)

Thank you John. I think I have my first niche. I've been a listener, buyer and seller of vinyl records for over 50 years so that is where I am going to start. I just built the initial free site with site builder and will continue through the lessons and develop the site. As soon as I go premium I will transfer it to a domain but with the free site it will give me a few days to work on it and make sure the niche is the one I really want. And I can also search for a good domain name in the meantime. thanks again John and hope you have a great weekend.

I love that niche Craig and being an actual user will make things that much easier. Your plan is perfect as well so just keep doing what you're doing because you're on the right track!

Thank you for the encouragement John! I did my "about me" post yesterday so today I am adding a few corrections and a few images to break up the text and attempt to make it eye friendly. This will all take some time to get up and running, but hey, I'm retired so I'm not having trouble finding time to work through the lessons and tasks. I'm enjoying it a lot and in time the work will start to pay off I'm sure.

What's up Craig!

It's John from the Work at Home Jobs site, in case you didn't remember!

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 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, you can respond to this message and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

I hope this helps Craig and welcome to the wonderful community here at WA!

Your friend,

John

Hello John and thanks for the welcome. I just watched the welcome video by Kyle that is in the first lesson and am ready to get started and learn. I'm looking forward to seeing what WA is all about and getting accustomed to how it all works. I'm sure we'll be talking more in the future. take care and thanks again for the welcome
