About Ddoig
Joined May 2019
I am a senior. My degree is in Agricultural Economics with a minor in Business from Montana State University. After college I became a Naval Line Officer for 3 years. My first tour included a communications officer with the Taiwan Defense Command. Our office was next door to a 4 Star Admiral. My second tour of duty was with the Reserve Fleet in California. My job was the Engineering Officer, where we overhauled the newer ships and submarines. I had supervision over 200 sailors.
I grew up on a Montana ranch.
After the service I was employed by the Agricultural Credit Association. I became a Branch Manager that grew into one of the largest branches in the US. I managed individual loans as high as $16,000,000. We were fortunate in not having any losses.
After 10 years with PCA I went back to my roots of ranching. My business included 1,000 head of registered beef cattle which I ran on a 5,000 cre ranch which I partly owned and partly leased. We also operated a commercial cattle feeding business where we provided feed to 20,000 head of dairy cattle. The cattle feeding business included a fleet of 20 large trucks.
I am retired now but want to be active in a work at home business.

Hi Duane,

Hope you have enjoyed your first 24 hours here at WA, I wanted to pop by today and just give you a bit of direction here if you are feeling the slightest bit stuck.

There is “core” training at Wealthy Affiliate, which is called the Online Entrepreneur Certification. This is a very comprehensive course and is going to walk you through the process of building a business online.

By lesson 4 of this training you are going to understand the process of building a business online, you are going to have a direction chosen for your business, and you are going to have your very own niche website up and running.

A lot of the time I see people that are shy to “take action” simply because they worry they might do something wrong. I can assure you that there are no major mistakes that you can make, and you have help every step of the way if you ever need a hand with anything!

Here is a link to the course: (or click “Training” in the main menu, and choose the “Getting Started” course)

So, get rolling through the training, you will see your business take shape very quickly. And if you ever need a hand with anything at all ask for help... simply click "Reply" to this comment, and leave your reply below. I will be here to help you out along with many other experts that are available 24/7 within the community.

This seems like a very exciting business. The working conditions are great. I am still very overwhelmed however.

You are going to get the hang of this Duane, and as you move through the training, things are really going to start to fall in place for you. :)

I look forward to working with you and simply drop me a reply if you ever need a hand with anything.

Just wanted to pop by and say hi. I realize you are probably just get stepping into the platform & community here at Wealthy Affiliate, but I wanted to let you know that I am here to help you out if you ever need anything.

My immediate recommendation for you (outside of asking for help when you need it), is to start moving through the training under the “Training” menu. You will want to go into the Get Started Here” course.

If you are looking to create a business online and do so within any niche, you are in the right place!

Chat soon Duane!
