About Daniel2015wa
Joined July 2015
I call myself the Retired Drop Shipper and my name is Daniel LeClear... My home is in Mesa, Arizona (Phoenix valley) and I enjoy daily sun bathing (but it's a dry heat lol)... I'm in my late forties (65) and enjoying life as a retired US Navy submarine sailor (Electronics Technician 1970-1990)... I have a couple niches of interest and hope to promote them here with Wealthy Affiliate.
Daniel2015wa's Goals 3
Money Goals
What ever amount I declare as a happiness figure would increase substantially the moment that amount hit my bank... As long as it does not cost me $950.00 just to take in $1000.00 I would be happy... Who could put a limit on "ecstatic", where $1000.00 per month of pure profit would be nice but so would $1000.00 per day... Heck, let's say $10,000.00/mo would make me ecstatic and that's full time hours per day to do so... Remember, I'm retired and lovin' it.

Hello Daniel, ♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ 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 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. 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

Daniel, 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 Daniel.

Hello Kyle - You must be overwhelmed by all the reply's I see you making... In any case, there is one area I'm struggling with and that is the "nuts and bolts" of building my website... I'll add text and photos that look ok during edit but when I publish it and view, it doesn't look the same... I've tried about four different (free) themes (via Rubix) and find them all to be very complicated and I struggle for hours trying to make them look proper (even at the HTML code level)... Are there other ways to edit my site? I've tried creating pages with MS-Word with photos and they look great, however are loaded with code and don't appear to be compatible with Rubix... This is slowing me down greatly... Best wishes from Danielll

Kyle Premium
What exactly do you mean by "look the same". The preview will never look quite the same, but it will usually be very close. If you are copying from MS word that could definitely be causing your issue as this attaches a bunch of JUNK code to your content.

If you do copy from MS word into your website, make sure that you click over to the "Text" tab first as that will clear all of the code that Word has attached...then you can move into the Visual editor and everything will be easier to work on.

Thank you for following me in ‘Wealthy Affiliate’ Daniel
This is one of the very best places I have personally been in years and am sure it is for you too!
Having risen to 256 in the rankings in my fist month, I can assure you that this was achieved solely by following Kyle’s teachings exactly to the word. I would advise anyone who is new to ‘WA’ to just follow what Kyle teaches in his training’s and not try to do it their own way. “Re-inventing the wheel“, I believe it’s called 
I wish you every success in all you are striving for in WA, good luck,
Roger

Thanks for the return follow, Daniel!

Boy, have I had some "small world" things happen today! My world just keeps getting smaller!! You see, my oldest son lives in Anthem, Arizona, (New River) which is also a suburb of Phoenix, and my middle son was in the U.S. Navy (nuclear program, Electrician's Mate) for 2 years.

Anyway, good luck with the rest of the training & much success!

Nancy

P.S. If you're in your late forties, does that mean I'm in my 30's (55)?

Hello NancyBeattie - Sometimes we're drawn to others for apparently no particular reason... But, wow! What a co-een-ki-dink, a nearby son of yours (44 miles North of me) and the other one is a electrician "nuke". An Electrician's Mate is an engineering member but what type of ship is he associated? I am/was a Navigation, Electronics Technician Submarine community (see my bio for more boring statistics)... Where I come from, there's only two(2) kinds of ships - Submarines and targets lol... No, I'm in my late 50's and you're in you're in your late 40's... Best Wishes from Danielll

NancyBeattie Premium
You just can't make this stuff up, lol! Unfortunately, my EM son got a medical discharge during prototype (at least he's still with us) and never made it onto a boat (see, I know what a submarine is called). He's now a year away from graduating with a bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from Manhattan College, so the GI Bill still works. (He paid for it, so he's using it!)

Hello NancyBeattie - You ARE savvy ("boat") - Also, FYI, BTW - Marines are called Jar Heads and Submariners are called Bubble Heads... Did you know subs have many problems with their screen doors? Just kidding lol... A Bach in EE is awesome, he'll do well with that... Best Wishes from Danielll

We have many retired folks here at WA that decided to move into the online space to start a business online. What I can tell you Daniel is that it is completely possible and you are going to be able to take any niche/interest and turn it into a full time business with some effort.

Everything you need is here to get you moving in the right direction including the support Daniel , so just let me know (drop me a reply) at any time. :)

PS. I hope you are having an awesome week thus far!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Daniel!

Nathaniell here - you probably remember me from my site One More Cup of Coffee. I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started building your online business.

Right now, there are just two things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. The support here at WA is the best in the internet marketing industry...please take advantage of it.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button or just click this link .

And don't forget that you can also access me for 1-on-1 support by leaving a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/nathaniell or by responding directly to this message.

There are a ton of other features you have access to right now, but they are explained in your main training linked above. Your #1 job right now is to get started on the first lesson.

PS. Did you know that you'll already have your website built by lesson 4? Crazy, I know!


★ ★ ★ Access Your Bonuses! ★ ★ ★

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff from me.

First off, you'll get a 59% discount ($19.95 for 1 month) on your membership. Twenty bucks for you first month of WA is an absolute steal.

Hello Nathaniell, Been plugging away since you first led me to this site (forgot to "like" your response on that first day, so doing it now)... I went "yearly" as the savings are huge... I'm now (8-8-2015) getting my site loaded with content... Gotta tell ya, I'm struggling with the mechanics of building a site... I know how I want it to look, and I'm trying to make the layout (simple bold, underline, fonts, etc) of my text look interesting, but is cumbersome at best - So many templates to choose from, arrgghh... Sometimes I'll select a function on the LEFT only to find I can't see it change in the final published site... Enough for now, I'll just keep poking at it till something "sticks" - Again, thanks for the warm welcome... So good to get away from that other "money grabbing" website that had me browse over to your One More Cup of Coffee - Actually going to go have my first of the morning NoW - Best wishes from Danielll

nathaniell Premium
Just remember that design takes second rank in a list of priorities of what should be done to the site. Most default templates, with plain white background and black text do fine (at least to start). Messing with too many font, border, menu items can be a waste of time.

What gets your site ranked, and eventually earning money is content! Writing articles for your website is very important.

Anyway, hopefully that relieves some stress! Oh, and you can also try a plugin called wp-edit for font/color stuff on your pages.

Hope that helps!

Hello Keane, How do you pronounce your name? Anyway, how refreshing it is to see all the "well wishers" and welcome comments. I'm back from being out all day and noticed there are messages for me to upgrade to Premium... However, I already upgraded so I'm wondering what's up... Do I need to log off and on again?
Just took another look (edit) and perhaps what I saw was encouragement to sign up for annual pay plan.
