About Famous
Joined May 2013
I'm an expat living in Costa Rica earning money from affiliate marketing. I love the fact I only need an air-conditioner and a fast internet connection.

I'm originally from the Los Angeles area, but spent more than 2 decades as owner and president of a telcom reseller business in Colorado.

Nowadays, I enjoy taking long walks, swimming, body surfing, and enjoying the good life.

I have a "no fooling around" approach to making money online. Too many members wait until they're frustrated to ask for help. Do yourself a favor and get expert help when picking niches and keywords. Their selection is the difference between having a chance to earn money, and not.

Today on January 1st, 2014 I had to tell 4 members they needed to start over with new websites because their keywords had little traffic or had too much competition. I don't believe beginners need to "pay dues" by doing it wrong a few times. There are plenty of experts on line here.

There is a lot to learn, however there is no reason or time for fundamental errors. If you really believe you can succeed, it can be done. If you create your own failures subconsciously, no one can help you.

Some of my favorite sayings:
- Let's earn a million dollars, then tell everyone how they shouldn't focus on money.
- Indecision is nothing more than a lack of information.

Hi. Welcome to WA. Wow Costa Rica. I'm trying to move to El Salvador this summer, and that is how I ended up in here at WA, to try give a shot at new source of income. I and my family have been going back and forth past 5 years to El Salvador and Canada. I love the life style in Central America, and if (when) I make some money online, I will be living the dream life in El Salvador. Just like you. I wish you all the best in building your wealth, keep in touch and God bless.

HI! Welcome to the group. I am fairly new here myself so I don’t have all the answers, in fact sometimes I think I know just enough to be dangerous. But in the short time I’ve been here I have learned a lot and I realize there is a lot more for me to learn. I doubt the learning will ever end because the internet is constantly evolving.

So, here’s what I know for sure…

1. There is a lot of information for you to go through.
2. It is really easy to get overwhelmed, if that happens step back and take a break
3. Follow the lessons one at a time, and don’t skip around if you can avoid it
4. If you get stumped on something, ask. Someone here knows the answer
5. Have fun and hang on!

I’ve been in other groups before, but I’ve never seen anything like Wealthy Affiliate. The other members (not just the owners) really want you and I to succeed so everyone tries to help.

Wishing the best success for you

Good day and welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate community! The first thing I suggest you do is jump into a live chat and introduce yourself. You will find this on the main Dashboard within WA. Here you will find other members within the community (including myself) that you will be able to communicate with, network with and get help with. :)

Lots of help here and a lot of people that care about your personal success. If you get stuck, simply ask! I look forward to working with you!

Oh, and I wanted to also point you in the direction of the Getting Started Course which is located on your dashboard, and in the main menu under recommended training "Getting Started".
