About Donhood
Joined December 2013
I'm Don Hood and I've been working with IM for a few years. Nothing has proven effective after spending way too much money. I'm discouraged but I have hope. I'm looking forward to learning and working with everyone here. I feel that this is the path I need to make work to reach financial freedom. incidentally, I just got burned again but in a round about way it brought me here. It is interesting how the Universe works!

Paint the wall. So we did. I left & went to the restroom & noticed my cell phone was missing/gone. I reported this to the police. Central said they needed proof. So I filed a lost/stolen report with metro for a replacement. I finally got it back, a new phone at the library!

Hi Don thanks for the follow, a scam brought me here, indirectly of course.

It is interesting how many of us have been scammed before finding this place. The lesson, I guess, is that we can share the experience with others hopefully before they get scammed. And invite them here, of course!

Hi Don, Thanks for the follow. I can relate to what you say. However, even though we have had some less than desirable experiences on the net they are all learning experiences. I hope that you come to love WA like I do. This is just the best (and safest) place to learn and grow our businesses. Take care

That is exactly how I feel. This is a family, a community of like minded people who are here to succeed together. I see all of life as education. It can be pretty wacky but it works out if we allow it to unfold and bring Love to it! Thanks!

Hi Donhood, welcome to WA! I totally agree with you with getting burnt...sounds all too familiar. I've spent about 8 years now dabbling in different systems for wealth and haven't been able to see any of them through till the end...feels good here though! Great place for newbies who are looking for a structure to the sea of information that's available out there! To your success!

Hello Donhood,nice to meet you here at WA.
Well when I have set up my pages, a serious part should be about how to learn and study with excellent results. I was struggeling a lot during my teene´s time and so at the very first beginning at university too. I was dicouraged not only by the results, but also from tutors that showed how smart they where to hide their own frustration and inability. When I met excellent scientist afterwards, no one of them needed to show off and to make others down. Because they where hard working human beeings. When I was teaching the 26 years at scondary highschool at Wels numerous students learned with my advice to master the school.
I always felt happy when they finished successful, because I knew that they were going out to do useful things to the public afterwards.

That's the greatest satisfaction of teaching. It's a good teacher whose students succeed.

Hello Don, I read and liked your blogs, especially "Let's plant some trees". Your take on current education system was spot on. As a little girl I used to love going to the junkyard with my Dad, watching him haul out "useless stuff", bring it home and use it to make something we needed - and it always WORKED when he got done!! A favorite uncle with 4 engineering degrees was constantly in awe of what Dad could do, since he only got as far as the 6th grade when he was needed home. Now I know he just learned how to learn.
I think you're one I want to follow.

Hi Don, I've just checked out http://www.donhood.org which you posted on my site. We certainly resonate in a number of ways - as you say, it's all part of a bigger picture, it's exciting stuff. You are right, more and more people are opening up to these concepts, and the world will be a better place for it. Great website, Don - I've left you a comment.

Hey there Donald and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. It is great to have you here and I definitely look forward to working with you. My suggestion to you is to take action on what you learn as a good deal of the actual learning will take place during the action? phase.

Getting started is easy here at WA, we have a step-by-step course dedicated to walking you through getting up and running here:

Kyle, thanks for the welcome! I would like you to check out two of my sites that I already have. www.openfaithministry.com, a pretty static site right now and www.donhood.org which is a site that I've been trying to monetize. I have spent thousands on various programs and such. I really need to start making something out of this. I would be encouraged with even a little return on my investment to start. Sorry I'm going on but I wanted to let you know where I am to have a better perspective to make this really work. In spite of what I've been through, I'm still hopeful. I believe this is a good path, I just need real help, not empty promises. Thanks, again!

Kyle Premium
I think it comes down to defining your niche or your audience of people you are going to help and to be much more targeted in that approach. Within both of your sites, they audiences you are trying to target is massive and they are not really specific to any one group.

Because of that I think you should narrow things down. To be completely honest, I would start fresh with the training here and as you learn from what we teach, you can apply the principles to your existing sites but as of now, it is going to be tough to monetize and attract a specific audience to your website because of the broad nature of the topic breadth.
