About Drtcdutton
Joined September 2015
I am interested in so many things but I cannot enjoy them because I am strapped to my 50-60 hour a week job (I have been a general and cosmetic dentist for 27 years---and I have the bad back and tendinitis to prove it! ;) ). I am an avid reader and total info geek and I love sharing what I learn with others but I have never used the information to free up my time. I think WA just may be the perfect platform for me to do what I want, free up my time and replace my day job. I am not afraid of hard work but I do not like wasting time; it's a commodity that one can never get back. My goal is to replace my full time income within a year so I can retire and pursue other interests. The lifestyle that the internet has the potential to provide has always been as intriguing to me as it has been illusive. I guess that's it. I look forward to the journey!

Hi Trella,
How are you doing? I haven't seen you in a while. I created a training on Evernote if you are looking for a place to keep all your files and at the same time able to do some word processing, mind mapping, or project management all in one place. Check it out @ I hope you're still having a great WA time.

Lol! No worries. I don't mind as long as I'm not in a restaurant enjoying a meal and someone insists on showing me their rotten tooth!

Hello Trella,
I am new here also but thankfully I retired in April 2015. So I have plenty of time available to work on the lessons and building a website.
I am going slow because I don't have any experience with working online but all is going well and I'm sure you will do well also. There is a lot of support and always ask questions if you have them. Good luck with your plans

Hi
I loved your last paragraph in your profile statement.
The lifestyle that the internet has the potential to provide has always been as intriguing to me as it has been illusive. I guess that's it. I look forward to the journey!

I have been just as intrigued, and so far it has been just as illusive for me also!

Here's to both us finding WA and traveling down this road together!

Blessings!

Thank you, Janelle! I only wish I had more quality to put into this so I can move along faster. All I have are Saturday and Sunday and my husband demands much of that time since he doesn't see me all week..oye! I just need 48 hour days and I'm set!

Hi Trella. Good motivation to free up time and look forward to a new life style. I guess most of us, here at WA, are in for this very reason. Life, nowadays, is so full of choices that it becomes frustrating to be hovering in one place for too long! Wishing you lots of success with all your endeavours, Anna

Thanks, Anna! Sometimes I wish I had the ability to live my life backwards! If I knew then what I know now!...

Hi Trella, from so many points of view, yes, would be a great idea living your life backwards but..........lets put a smile on your face! Please read below Woody Allen's famous quote on living life backwards!

“In my next life I want to live my life backwards. You start out dead and get that out of the way. Then you wake up in an old people's home feeling better every day. You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, and then when you start work, you get a gold watch and a party on your first day. You work for 40 years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement. You party, drink alcohol, and are generally promiscuous, then you are ready for high school. You then go to primary school, you become a kid, you play. You have no responsibilities, you become a baby until you are born. And then you spend your last 9 months floating in luxurious spa-like conditions with central heating and room service on tap, larger quarters every day and then Voila! You finish off as an orgasm!” I rest my case. Have a lovely day, Anna

LOL! Woody Allen doe make me laugh! I saw the Brad Pitt mvie "The Curious Case Of Benjamin Buttons." as thought how tragic at some points in his life. We need a control switch so we can dial in the perfect time in our life and then press start. Oh well... for now, Anna I will be contented with just turning the page and beginning my new chapter in the same book of "My Life."
Nice talking to you, Anna!

Welcome to WA. It can do all you dream about and more. I have a niece who has a thriving dental practice, but it keeps her on her toes. However, she won't even look at this or anything else. I congratulate you on your open mindedness and choosing this option.

Drtcdutton,
It amazes me that people from so many walks of life have joined this WA community!
It just goes to show that not everyone who is comfortable financially is mentally or physically or spiritually or even psychologically comfortable. Your situation is a proof of that.
Wishing you a fulfilling WA journey.....
Reply
drtcdutton Premium
You are so right, LinaB. I love what I do but there are physical limitations that I did not have 15 or 20 years ago. Plus I have so many varied interests. I have MORE to contribute and I have become more of a home body. My values have changed and ultimately I want to downsize (again) and get life as simple as I can but I also know I needs to save for my retirement (there will most likely be NO SOCIAL SECURITY).
Thanks for reaching out!

Hey Trella and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 5 years ago. I was looking to learn how to supplement my income through Internet Marketing and what I've found was so much more.

By 2010, I was working full-time from home. These days, ALL of my income comes from my ventures online. In fact, my wife just recently quit her job to start her own business as well. Internet Marketing and Wealthy Affiliate have provided us with amazing opportunities (we've bought a house, get to travel the world, and best of all, no longer spend time "going to work") and I'm incredibly thankful to the training, tools, and support here that made it all possible. :)

I'd love for you to see the same level of success. So, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

To get started, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself. If there's anything I can do for you Trella, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve
