About Followme2
Joined July 2017
Thank you! I'm a 4th generation member of our family's vineyard in Napa Valley. I love to take my Honda XR250R for a ride at the end of a day of work! The dog in the profile photo of me is our ranch dog Cabby. I published a book about he and our friend's Black Lab that used to live down the road called "In Search Of The Holy Dog Food"That book has been to the Frankfurt Book Fair and London Book Fair last March of 2017. The book can be found at Lit Fire Publishing as well on the Barnes and Noble websitehttps://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/in-search-of-the-holy-dog-food-mark-battuello/1124632156?ean=9781682567241. The book is mostly a photo story for kids with values of living and humor. I love to take my kayak out on the Russian River in Sonoma County, CA. I recently took a friend of mine on a fun half day tour in the kayak on the Russian River. Where I like to kayak the river is lined with the Redwoods! I am an artist. I used to sell my paintings out of a restaurant that is no longer in business. It was called the Silverado Brewery and Restaurant and was where I sold my paintings for 12 years. I am an Eagle Scout from the St. Helena Troop 1. I will always love the outdoors: hiking, kayaking camping, fishing etc...
I create T shirt designs as a hobby and have sold a number of them with the help of a Mom and Pop printing company in Sonoma County called 24 hour Shirt. Thank you for reading!
I have learned that the engagement of WA members has been outstanding here for when I can help and when others have helped me out. One small chunk of study at a time we will all make our goals come true here...Starting to believe that more and more each day.

I have just added two more websites to Wealthy Affiliate! CrownRoseCompass.com with my art and TheOutdoorDream.com for my adventures and what gear I use as well new gear available.

Hey Mark, I just wanted to check in and see if had a chance to start exploring Wealthy Affiliate. If you haven't started the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course - that's the best place to start. It'll take you through the whole process of how to start your website and how the making money stuff works.

Click the green"Get Started Here" button on the left.

PS. One thing people get stuck on a lot is picking a topic or "niche" for their website. If you are having trouble thinking of something to make your website about let me know and we can figure it out together.

PSS. Just about every new member wants to see some success stories! There are too many to list, but here are a few of my favorites: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/parre/blog/boom-goes-the-dynamite-4-338-57-for-august

Thank you and yes I am curious about your niche ideas...wow $40,000 that's my college loan all paid off! I'm willing to follow your lead! I still need to go through the course work just the premium membership is way out of my budget until a stream of income starts to roll in.

Also know know this...If you ever come to visit Napa Valley...I can give you all kinds of fun places to visit or suggest where to eat, hike, and even though I gave up drinking two years ago, there is still so much fun here in wine country, we discover the appreciation of people who come to visit and how we can host them!
ridermark360@gmail is my email address
take care

Napa Valley is pretty close to me!

The free sites on WA are absolutely able to make money. Check out this post form Dom with some great traffic stats: Any website with traffic can make money!

The main issue that I see is that most people that want to stay on the free membership until they make money are not truly motivated. They want results first, and only then will they put in the work. Of course not everyone is like that, but that's general vibe I get. "Show me the money then I'll try a little harder."

The folks that see the value in WA and really want to commit to growing their business tend to upgrade and move it to a .com. They are willing to put in the work BEFORE they see the money because they believe they can achieve their goals with Wealthy Affiliate training and support.

But for a motivated person, and an independent learner, there's no reason why a free Siterubix site couldn't make money. They get indexed in Google, they get traffic, and you are allowed to do affiliate promotions on them.

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! :)

Botipton I just signed up to premium today! I am a bit nervous because I want everything to work...because of all the money I spent in the past on internet ventures. I didn't think I could afford it at 1st...just woke up this morning with a new follower and read reviews again... I started my own blog called outdooractiviygear.com that is what taught me how hard it is!
