About DickH
Joined January 2016
I am a retired business man having spent 44 years as and underwriter, underwriting manager, and project implementation manager. After I was downsized out of the insurance industry I went back to school to get my masters degree in Project Management.

Shortly after I received my masters I was promoted to the PIM and coordinated the delivery and installation of ATM's. Later I coordinated the delivery and installation of check processing equipment. Once I became experienced in the coordination of this equipment I developed a niche market coordinating the installation of this equipment for my company's outside dealers. This was very successful until 9/11 when banking laws were changed and I no longer had a market..

After this I went on other projects until March 31 2013 I retired. This date coincidentally was the 100 anniversary of my father's birth. After four plus decades of working for other people I decided I wanted something where I don't have to brave Atlanta's traffic, I don't have a boss, and don't have to put up with office politics.

Outside of work I used to be a dedicated motorcycle rider, riding up to 2000 miles a month. During this time I owned six Harleys and one Kawasaki, but in 2014 I sold my last Harley and bought a little sports car. Now I drive that all over like I did my motorcycle.

I have been married for 50 years have three grown sons and 7 grand children ages 23 to 8. You can imagine the noise level when the whole family gets together, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

Sarah my 20 year old grand daughter attends North Georgia College and her 23 year old brother Zachary is going to Lanier Tech near Gainesville, GA

Several of my grandchildren play soccer, and are surprisingly pretty good. My15 year old grand son plays on a traveling team. My 14 year old grand daughter and her 11 brother are also playing on traveling teams. My six year old granddaughter is a princess. If you don't believe me just as her,.

Lastly I am a die hard Green Bay Packers fan. Before I moved to Georgia I lived in Wisconsin where it was mandatory. My blood flows Green and Gold, Lombardi is a God, and the frozen tundra is the most historic stadium in the league.

Success is very cumulative in nature. Every action you take will add up to a much greater success. I can tell you that when you earn your first money, it will all become very REAL and it will lead to much more success.

Personally it took me a couple of months to get there (to earn my first dime), but by month 6 I was earning a consistent income. That is likely what your journey will look like...stay persistent and ask for help when you need it. I am in your "corner" every step of the way Richard! :)

Everything was all good until the GB Packers......LOL! Detroit Lions fan born and raised. I had a good laugh over your description of your grandkids. "....they're surprisingly pretty good.." and the 6 year old being a "princess....ask her...". Sincerely, a Lions fan =) =)

i will tell you some thing that will make you happy. In 1962 ( it shows how old I am, Green Bay came into Detroit for the Thanksgiving game. The Packers were undefeated. Bart Starr the quarter back spend most of the game on his back and Green Bay lost. There is a story, which may be an urban myth that in the huddle one time Starr said," If you guy don't start blocking I am going to put you back here."

Besides Matthew Stafford is from the University of Georgia.which makes him almost human. I live about 60 miles from UGA. Even so I always hope that GB stops the Lions ever since 1962.

The princess who is named Emily is spending the night tonight. On her birthday I take her for a ride around her neighborhood which she loves. I pull in to cul du sacs and do a quick you turn which makes her giggle. For the first five years she would talk to me unless I was baby sitting her alone at my house.

I hope you don't live in Detroit now. If you did you could get a good house cheap.

avankarsen Premium
Ha. I have not heard that before. No, I don't live there now. 10 years ago I lived 30 miles North of Detroit and that was close enough for me!! Lions and Packers meet up again Nov. 6th I believe!

I have seen television programs about Detroit and it has some of the most beautiful architecture in a lot of buildings. I really am sorry all those fantastic homes were allowed to deteriorate so badly. There is a Detroit City organization who is selling those house cheap if the purchaser will fix them up. I saw some of this on a show called, "This Old House." Detroit had some really great houses because of the Auto industry.

Detroit stopped having Green Bay on Thanksgiving because they got tired of being beat by the green and gold.

Let me know if I can be of any help. I have been a member since January 2016. Things were going good except in October of last year I developed cancer. In October and November I was not diagnosed. On December 6th I found out the bad news. On December 3rd I was taken by ambulance to the hospital. I kept falling down and twice we had to call the fire department to pick me up. The second time they asked my wife and she said yes. That was December 3rd and I didn't come home until 12/6. For about 9 months I was not able to work on WA. I am in remission now though I have to get a cat scan occasionally to make sure I am still doing all right. The last time I had a check was in July and it seemed that I was doing so well that the Doctor would have had the port taken out. I said wait no just in case it came back.

Take care. Are you a Tigers fan?

Best Regards

Dick H

PS Sorry to be so long winded.

This is a year from the last post. Its been an adventure some year. You will be happy to know the Packers stink, and Detroit is having a good year. It so bad I did even watch Sunday's game against the Patriots. Rogers is unhappy with the effort of the team and they are trading away good players. I think management has moved on to next year, and so have I.

If you still remember Atlanta my wife works in Marietta and we live in Eastern Gwinnett County. I wish I could rent an apartment there so she has a shorter commute, and keep the house. Then we could come home on weekends to be close to the kids.

Yes my grand kids are quit a handful. Occasionally I baby sit them. I also have a grand dog, and he will stay with me when my son goes out of town. He is a character. He used to sleep in our bed when he would stay with us, but he can't get up in the bed. Now he sleeps where he wants to.

It is a lot of fun to have them come over.

I know where Marietta is, we lived in there for about a year, then bought a home in East Point and lived there for eight years.

I have a 14 year old furry baby, she can still jump on the bed, when she gets to old to jump I will get her a dog stair.

DickH Premium
You must have lived in East Point some years ago. It's not the best place to live now. I have lived in Gwinnett County for almost 40 years. I was transfer here from Wisconsin and would never go back. Can't handle the winters. Also all my family from there are gone.

MY Grand dog is only here maybe 3 or 4 times a year. When he could get on the bed he slept near my wife. I think he could get up to the bed, but the last time he tried he hurt himself because he tried to jump on the bed where someone was.

Richard, 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 Richard.

Thanks for asking. I'm moving slowly and have been a little confused at times. Lesson 4 was a little difficult but I think I have straightened that out. When to uberseed and got a about 20 ideas per my three topics. I think I am on the right track. Again thanks for asking

Yeah, not every lesson will be as easy as the next, but you will get the hang of things as you take action on the training and do ask for help if you ever need it.

Good Morning. I have been retired for two years doing nothing, but enjoying not going into the toxic atmosphere of my former job. At one point my job was done in a home environment. When I was starting that job I made sure I started the same time every morning and worked as if I was in an office. I am doing that now. This week I am taking two of my grand kids to school and pick them up afterword, so I have been starting at 9:30 EST. Next week when I don't have to do that I will start and hour earlier. I found that when I started my virtual job, this discipline helped me to get into a rhythm of the job. Likewise I feel following this approach will help me to be successful with Wealthy affiliate. I guess I am lucky that I don't have another job or growing children because I am able to follow this approach
