About DocSmith
Joined April 2017
I am a Pastor, Pharmacist, and investor. I married my high school sweetheart in 1965 and we had four children. One girl and three boys.
I have practiced pharmacy in my own businesses for over 50 years and owned medical equipment companies and owned a 40% interest in a cellular tower company.
I am an unashamed Christian; I share that not as a brag about being perfect, because I am far from it. As one who although much less than perfect has experienced the Grace of The Lord Jesus Christ.
My wife and I founded The Gospel Vision Foundation, Inc. in 1995 to support and train Christian men and women in Ukraine. That work has expanded to Brazil, Peru, Venezuela as well as in the USA.
For the last 28 years I have conducted The Business Mans Bible Class, the oldest continuous religious broadcast in Texas.
I am passionate about, both the physical and spiritual wellbeing of people.
I do not claim to know everything, but I have helped thousands of people over the years to live a better and more productive life.
The products and services I offer online are intended to help you live and enjoy life to the fullest. That is my goal. I hope that I can help you and your family in some way.

I continue to ask for help and Kyle continues to respond by asking me what my question is.
It seems that I am like a dog chasing its tail- No useable answers.
I will admit that in life some of the best lessons have been those that taught me to quit beating a dead horse and look elsewhere.
I have bought and paid for everything the site has said was helpful and so I will check back here from time to time ----
BUT for now I AM OUT OF HERE.
I have found REAL HELP WITH TELEPHONES SERVICE 24/7
No it would not be right for me to name the place but Wordpress recommended it.
May God bless you each and every one.

May God bless you in every way

I understand I'm on information overload as well. Just focus on the training and forget all the other training that is being posted by the other members, you can come back to those later. You will get through it.

May God bless you as well

Thank you my brother!
Lets follow each other with our eyes on the eternal prize.
May God bless your efforts and every endeavor and keep you focused on giving proper thanks for whatever success you have and always remember where it comes from.
Many years ago as a successful pharmacist and businessman I was working all the hours I could plus thinking constantly about how I could improve or expand.

It was about that time I was so maxed out that it dawned on me that I did not own those businesses, they owned me. They told me when to come to work when to go home what to do all day.

Then I remembered the who and how of why I became successful.
I had began to make the business my God and see them as THE SOURCE of my livelihood.

You may say to yourself, "My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me."
18 But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today.
19 If you ever forget the LORD your God and follow other gods and worship and bow down to them, I testify against you today that you will surely be destroyed.
20 Like the nations the LORD destroyed before you, so you will be destroyed for not obeying the LORD your God.
Deuteronomy 8:17-20 (NIV)

I finally realized that as worshiped God as THE SOURCE, God would provide my living. God was using the Pharmacies and other businesses as a tool but as long as I worshiped the Giver instead of the tool he used I would never lack.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hello Darrell,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also 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. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Welcome Darrell!
This is Kyle. I am glad you made it. Wealthy Affiliate is awesome and you will like it. If you are ready to roll you can get started in the training if you click the green button labeled "Get Started Here" in the upper left-hand menu.

Everything is laid out simple, but inevitably things are going to get confusing for you at some point in the training. So if you ever need help don't hesitate to message me. I was in your shoes not too long ago and would be happy to help.
