About Drawshot
Joined February 2014
Hi to all,
I started building websites in 1998, when I learned to design from scratch and hand-coded a fan website for the video game "Delta Force". Over the next few years I developed a small business building websites, and doing a little affiliate marketing and investing. Then 9/11 happened and I started working for a federal agency that became part of the Department of Homeland Security when it came into being.
I am now planning on retiring early from the government and try my hand at the web business again. I decided to join here to see if I can learn some new tricks, and more efficient methods. I'm willing to learn, and also to share my knowledge of internet business if I can be of help.

Hi Randy, Yea I loved that game too, I used the M&P for the close and dirty work if that was my "role", but usually in most games I was way out with a 50, causing mayhem. I've not been playing for a while as have to get things in line so I can find that magical 4 hr workweek. It can be done, was well on my way until 9/11 happened, and now getting it all in motion again. Best wishes on your endeavors.

Thank you for answering those questions I had from when I first came into this site. I absolutely love this place. Community is awesome! The knowledge I can learn is priceless!
Reply
Drawshot Premium
Your quite welcome, and I agree. The education you get here is more involved and more up to date then anything I've heard of in a formal education, and its definitely way cheaper. Actually what you learn here in your first few months can have you paying for your education and more. I cannot think of any college or university that can claim that lol.

Hello Ed, thanks for adding me to your network...

You have a very interesting story and it sounds like you have some valuable knowledge you can share with us. I too am a fellow website designer/developer and would like to offer my assistance if you ever need it.

Even us guys need a little help from time to time, I hope I can come to you as well.

Hi Buck, thanks for the follow back and the kind words. I may have an edge on you with marketing, but not so sure of that lol, I know you're way ahead of me with word press, as I have never really created one site yet. I have a start at one here, but a long ways to go. I had either hand coded, or used dreamweaver for all my other work so this is a whole new process to learn. Long and short of it, don't be surprised to find a PM from me asking for help with something ;) .

Ed, Thank you for your follow back and comments and offer of help, I will keep you in mind in the coming months, I never played Delta Force but I started playing about the time the Medal of Honor and Call of Duty games came out. Don't have much time for it anymore. Anyway, thanks again.

Hi, thanks for the welcome to WA and I'm sure I might have a few questions before its all over, if only because this is a new venture on this site. I'm hoping to learn a few new things, and to be able to help others with the knowledge that I already have from past web work and marketing. Best wishes in your endeavors.
