About Dickjones454
Joined July 2019
I am 75 years old. I have an MS in engineering and an MBA. I managed a 40 to 60 million dollar company for 15 years. I have a great resume, but companies in the industries I used to work in will not hire someone my age.
I am semi-retired. Only semi because I need to make some income to support my retirement. I drive for uber about 7 hours per day, but it is not enough.
I’m supporting a special needs daughter and one that is working and trying to finish her college degree.
I need to have an operation on my right knee which will prevent me from driving for about two months. I would love to have income I can manage without having to drive.
I have an affiliate website that I created a few months ago while working with another group. It never generated a dime of income so I gave up on it. I hope it has value to help me get started again.
My passions are shallow water salt water fishing and bird hunting.

Hi Richard, welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Tim, you might remember me from my website Affiliate UNguru. I'm just stopping by to say hello and to see if there's anything I can do to help you get started.

If so, just hit 'reply' below this message and I'll get back to you asap! :)

Oh and while I think of it, here's the link for you to get started: This is the exact training that took me from "newbie" to "super affiliate", so I'm super excited to be sharing this with you today! All you need to do is follow the training and complete the tasks as you go along, and you'll be well on your way to creating a thriving business online.

Also, before I go, I just wanted to let you know that it's totally okay to ask LOTS of questions. In fact, the more questions you ask the better!

We were ALL beginners at one point. Most of us started out knowing virtually nothing about how any of this stuff works (myself included)! Which is why I think you are going to find the support and mentoring you receive here at Wealthy Affiliate to be absolutely priceless. So I recommend you take FULL advantage of this as you start building out your new business.

Anyways Richard, it's wonderful to have you as part of the WA community and I'm looking forward to working with you going forward!


P.S I just wanted to give you the heads up about some exclusive bonuses I have lined up for you, if you upgrade to a Premium Membership within your first 7 days!

Bonus 1 ⇨ Over 60% Off a Premium Membership!

By upgrading to a Premium Membership at Wealthy Affiliate, before the timer runs out, you will receive a 61% discount on your first month (from $49 to $19)! This is an absolute steal. Getting everything you need to build a profitable online business for such a low price is simply a no brainer. You can learn more about Wealthy Affiliate Premium here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/order/signup

Bonus 2 ⇨ Live "Idea to Profit" Niche Case Study

Access to an exclusive Live "4-part case study" that walks you through the exact step-by-step process of creating a profitable niche website- right in front of your eyes in a true "over the shoulder" format. This one bonus alone could change everything for you, as you are seeing the entire process in action from "idea to profit"- step-by-step, click by click. This case study is not available anywhere else so it's very high value stuff and something you will not want to miss.

Bonus 3 ⇨ I'll Personally Help You Choose a Profitable Niche

One of the biggest stumbling blocks beginners face, is choosing a niche. But it doesn't have to be that way for you! Because I'm personally going to walk you through how to choose a profitable niche, based on YOUR passion or interest! No more guesswork and no more 'fear' that you might choose the wrong niche. I will help you choose a winning niche from day 1!

Bonus 4 ⇨ 1-on-1 Coaching and Mentoring

Starting any new venture can be challenging, even when you have access to something as amazing as Wealthy Affiliate. This is why I am going to be offering you personal and private access to me! I will be your mentor, your coach. I will be there for you every step of the way to help you reach (and exceed) your goals. I started right where you are now, and built a 6 figure business online, by following the same training you are going through right now. So having personal access to a successful internet marketer, who followed the same path as you and "came out the other side" (whenever you need it) is going to be a HUGE deal for you. But remember, you must act before the timer runs out if you want to claim these bonuses! :)

Thanks for your welcome message Tim.
I'm just at the point of trying to get started watching the training videos. I have a website that I produced with another group. Never generated a dime so I gave up on it. Would appreciate you taking a look at it and telling me if it's worthless or can be salvaged and made successful: www.gottofish.com.
Thanks for your help.

Hi Richard,

To be honest I would probably start fresh with a site here at WA. That is essentially just an e-commerce store which will not make you money unless you have traffic. And as it is that site is going to be hard pressed getting traffic unless you pay for it.

Wealthy Affiliate teaches you how to get lots of free, quality traffic to your site. So what I suggest is you start a site in that niche (fishing) if this is what interests you, and follow the training to build out your site according to the training. This will put you in the best possible position to get traffic and generate affiliate sales.

Hope this helps, and by all means reach out if you have any other questions.
