About DonT
Joined September 2014
Hello to all WA brothers and sisters! I've always been interested in sales and marketing. My journey began with a failing store where I was employed. One of the vice-presidents of the company asked me about taking over the store. We discussed salary and benefits and came to a mutual agreement. The first year our sales tripled - needless to say the company was thrilled.

How did we turn things around? It was quite simple really. I didn't repeat the mistakes of the former manager. I saw the errors during my time under him - even tried to warn him. So, what I changed immediately when I took over was the way we, employees and myself, would treat our customers. We provided the best service we could possibly provide. The customer wasn't a customer they were friends. I went to sporting events, luncheon, movies, the arts, etc. with them. Sometimes I would pay. Sometimes they would pay. And that relationship carried over in how we did business. Secondly, improved relationships between management and employees. This was critical because now we had a motivated sales staff. I believe the backbone of any company are its employees underneath management. They will make you or break you. At any rate I will move on because this is already longer than I intended.

After about 7 or 8 years I moved on in another direction in my life. I have been out of sales for about 20 years, but I have never stopped loving sales. I decided, about 3 years ago, to do some IM. It was more of a hobby. What I found out quickly was that the "landscape" of sales and marketing had drastically changed. It's a new environment. So, what I hope from WA is to learn and catch up with what was lost during the 20 years I was out of sales. I have a lot to learn.

My personal interests. Business - always been fascinated by it. I love the outdoors. People - care about people. It's what I enjoy about the internet. You meet people from all parts of the world. I enjoy watching movies and sports, especially football and baseball. I have gained an interest in soccer, although I don't understand it.

Personal life. I have had some challenges. I lost two brothers and both parents. I won't go into that. It's time to close this out. Overall life has been good to me. I want to thank you for allowing me to ramble.

In closing. I have been signed up with WA for a couple of weeks now - just been observing. The thing that has stuck out to me is how well everyone seems to get along here. The willingness to help is unreal. Closing now going to catch a movie. Hope you all are doing well.

Hi Don, it's great to meet you. I'm sorry to hear about the family issues that occurred.

I read your profile and wanted to say you share some very important concepts that will greatly help you in online business. When we set up a website and seek to connect with people, we sell less (if at all) and connect with them on a friendship level. This ironically ends up being much more successful as you already know.

What I want to say is that in online business, trust is the biggest component and WA helps you set up a business that will have your visitors trusting you.

I know you're going to love WA and if you have any questions, do let me know. Thank you again for sharing your story.

Hi Vitaliy,

Thanks for your reply. I agree with you. I came upon your website by accident. I was searching for info on affiliate programs. Just looking around. To be honest when I clicked on your site, through Google search, I was expecting to read about the latest scam. lol. What I found peaked my interest and ended up here. I loved your writing style - conversational and relational. I went away with the feeling that this is a good guy. Again thanks for the response.

By the way love your pic. Awesome background!

Don
