Greetings Fellow Members,
I'm Dave Mahen, and I'm retired from a regular job and loved it! I started in the Tool and Die trade in 1967; I volunteered for the army the year before the Viet Nam War ended, but they rejected me for my physical condition. You can't shoot if your vision is only in one eye it seems. I bounced around other jobs a while and went to aerospace running production machines. I moved into manufacturing engineering. After 14 years there, I moved to a wire manufacturing company as a shop manager. I finished my career in the window industry as a Quality Control Manager.

I tried and failed at several small businesses over the years with little training and therefore no success.

I've begun studying social media, email marketing, and more. My other hobbies are photography, music, reading, and woodworking. There are many choices for a niche in there, and as I grow here, these will be the basis for websites. I'm still young at heart and I want to make a go if this.

My first Website is in Boot Camp and my second website is in the Online Entrepreneur Certification. My niche in OEC is hypnosis, and my work on the site has started.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us. 

Wealthy Affiliate is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business. I tried to do this alone before and was completely lost. 

Now I know why. 

There are so many tricks of the trade and it saves so much time having it all laid out clearly in its training programs. 

Keep following the training and exercises every day. Give it a year to see significant results. You'll be a happy camper by then. We all make progress at different rates and it is possible to see meaningful results in 4-6 months. Google cannot be rushed. 

Google rewards people with websites that provide value to their visitors. It helps to boost their ad revenue of course! And that helps your websites get high rankings. But it takes time to build credibility. Once they realize your site is an authority site, good things will happen faster. 

When you get stuck, and you will, just ask for help in the discussion area located below each lesson. Scroll down to find it. Another member who has the answer will get back to you promptly. 

In the meantime have fun with the program. Much success to you.

Hi David,

Hello David And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve and there will always be something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 500+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Have a great day.
