About FFinch
Joined November 2015
Hello, everyone. My name is Forrest Finch. I live in central NY. I'm a former certified Ford rep, and truck specialist. Now semi-retired.

Even though I'm a Ford kinda guy, I've had a long time love affair with British sports cars. Don't ask me why. You need to be a mechanic just to own one. But they're sure fun to drive.

I also have a passion for aviation which includes radio controlled, fixed wing airplanes, as well as full scale.

I find time, almost every day, to play the same old guitar that I've owned for over 30 years. I find music to be a great form of therapy for me.

I've been playing around with online marketing for several years without much success. The reason I say "playing" is because even though I was spending $49 per month for training, I spent way to much time scratching my head trying to figure out what to do next.

I enrolled in "Wealthy Affiliate" because I was looking for a thorough education and I heard that this is where it was happening.

Hi Forrest, I got a brainstorm about a joint venture for my project launch, and I thought I would run it by people that responded to my posting first. I want to launch my tea/coffee marketplace before the summer, along with a new tea liqueur line. I am offering equity and interest for a tiny buy in price. Do you want to learn more? If so, please contact me at: escentltd@yahoo.com.

I'm really not prepared to buy in. Would be cool though. So you're giving up equity in your business?

Hello, Forrest Finch...not to be confused with Forrest Gump. I love your profile but have to disagree about British sports cars. Try German just for the fun of it. As a hobby, for years I raced a 1965 Porsche 911 on race tracks all over the country like Limerock in CT and Watkins Glen in NY, just to name a couple. And was a Porsche racing instructor for the Porsche Club of America.
I knew Paul Newman as we both belonged to SCCA (Sports Car Club of America).
Do you belong to the MG car club by chance? They must have rallyes, concours events, etc all over NY. It's great to meet people with a common interest.
Other things we have in common are aviation...I'm a former flight attendant and my husband, a pilot, had a Cessna that we flew all over the east coast.
And...the guitar.
Best wishes for your success,
Karen

I bought this one brand new in 1972. Swiss built by an aircraft company. Ford powered with front wheel drive.
Do you know what it is?

Forrest, OMG is that a Pantera???
Reply
FFinch Premium
It's a Saab.

KarenDemers Premium
That's a Saab? Oh yea...a Sonett? It's a beauty.
I seriously thought it was a Pantera. I knew someone who raced a Pantera and haven't seen one in years.
Reply
FFinch Premium
It's a Saab Sonnett III. You're good. Most people have no idea. Much fun to drive but, can't be compared to the Pantera.

A very close friend of mine bought a Pantara right about the same time as I got my Saab. Much larger and faster with a 350 V8 Ford Europa, compared to my little 1/2 of a 289 V8 Ford Europa.

The Saab had a 144 ci. V4, Ford Europa engine, making 75 hp. Top end was a very impressive 115 mph. Gas mileage was an even more impressive, 42 mpg and it carried a 16 gallon fuel tank. Go figure. Not a hybrid. Why can't they get that kind of mileage out of today's cars?

Hand built at the rate of 1800 cars for that year. All fiberglass body setting on a tubular frame with the usual Saab roll cage built in to the frame work and a visible roll bar perched on the fuel tank housing.

What do you do with the Saab? Show it? Are you in a car club? You should be.

Hello Forest, ♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right, the first website link (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi, Kyle!

To get the ball rolling, I went into the "make money online" niche with WA as my main topic. Not making big money yet but, the site is still young.

I have google adsense in two different locations on my side bar along with some other ads.

Moving up in the search engines quite nicely and also get traffic through some paid and free advertising.

Could I ask you for a little feedback on my site? Even though I think of myself as my own worst critic, it would be good to have a second opinion.

I've received feedback from the "credit dashboard" but the only criticism I got was on my "about me" page. They said it was too long and had no call to action. So I fixed it. I think.

Still looking for a good referral though. It will come in time for sure.

But in the mean time, I'm having fun with it. The fun part is when everything starts coming together and looking like something.

Not to ramble but, I've been a modeler since I was around 10 years old. I know what it's like to transform a box of sticks into a beautiful flying machine.

Building a business is basically the same thing as starting out with a box of sticks.

Thanks for the come back,
Forrest
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, building a business is the same way. You don't see the end product right away, it will come together stick by stick, take some modelling and shaping of your content, and before you know it you are going to have a masterpiece on your hands (and one that is driving income online).

Keep me updated with your progress as you continue to move forward.

Hey FFinch, do you have your Private Pilots license as well? I always wanted to get mine, but it is quite expensive. Maybe once I get my site up and running I just might :)
Reply
FFinch Premium
I fly on a sport ticket. Way cheaper than a private ticket, and only takes half the time to complete.

Years ago my Wife (X Wife now) made me quit flying with 32 hours. All but 9 were solo hours. Only needed 8 more to complete the minimum time required.

Didn't try again until many years after. In the mean time, I was flying with anyone who would take me up.

I got plenty of stick time just doing that. But I can't log those hours.
Reply
Brooklyn2008 Premium
Sport ticket eh..I'll have to look into that. That's awesome! Do you own any of those Cessna's in your pictures? I think that would be the ultimate freedom - owning and being able to fly your own plane!!
Reply
FFinch Premium
I used to own the 182, but for only a few years. It was more plane than I really needed plus I was flying it illegal as I wasn't signed off on it.
Yeah I'm an outlaw.lol.

The 150 used to belong to an old friend who I used to fly with quite often.. He has since passed, and the plane was sold.

At this moment I'm planeless. Not the first time though. Now I'm in the market for something that I'm legal to fly. I've got my sights set on a Kolb like this one.
Reply
Brooklyn2008 Premium
Awesome!!! That thing looks fun and scary all at the same time lol They don't appear to be too expensive from what I seen. Would you buy one pre-built, or build the kit yourself?
How high can you fly those little guys? I couldn't find anything that mentioned top altitude. Probably no higher than 10k ft or so?
Reply
FFinch Premium
I'm good for up to 10,000 ft. After that I start doing things that I shouldn't.

I like to stay low when sight seeing anyway. If I were to go on a longer flight, I'd be at about 6,500 ft. AGL. (above ground level)

I like these little guys because they're like little sports cars with wings.

Way cheaper to own than a Cessna 182 Skylane.
Reply
Brooklyn2008 Premium
lol Yeah I could imagine! That's awesome.

There's place not too far from where I live where you can pay to go up in those little Cessna's for a boot around. I've only ever been on large commercial planes, but this summer I might just check that out :)

I have only one issue.as of today. Yoast is telling me that
"A meta description has been specified, but it does not contain the focus keyword."

It's the only red light I have.

I'd like to fix that.
Reply
Kyle Premium
That is why I don't use Yoast. It tries to give you SEO advice and it can actually lead you to making mistakes within your content/meta tags that will actually decrease your chances of ranking. I personally use All in One SEO for this reason and that is what we recommend within the training.
Reply

Yeah, it can lead to more confusion than it is worth.
