About FrankB44
Joined November 2017
Hi! My name is Frank. I recently retired after 30 plus years in retail sales management. I've discovered that I have too much idle time, because most of the things I enjoy doing cost money. Lots of money! Lol I've also discovered that I became accustomed to working a lot of hours each day, and the sudden stop to that work isn't sitting well with me. I considered finding a part time job, but nothing interests me. At least, nothing that I can work at part time, and definitely not on my own schedule. And I have an ongoing concern with outliving my financial resources. I hope that Wealthy Affiliates will provide a vehicle that will satisfy my needs, keeping me occupied, providing income, and still allowing me freedom to enjoy retirement. Traveling is at the top of my list.

Hi Frank

Thanks so much for the follow, I'm following you back too :)

If you need some inspiration for your WA journey, feel free to check out my recent post:
I'm sure you'll agree, there's some awesome tools on here for Wealthy Affiliate members.

I use Jaaxy for all of my Keyword research and SiteContent to draft all of my posts for my website. Here's a little trick that will show you how beautifully these tools integrate and also SAVE you time:
Canva is also a great tool that's quite popular with other WA members, to design stylish graphics, like headers etc, for their websites.
Wishing you every success and feel free to drop me a line anytime!
Cheers, Karen

Hi Frank:

Good to meet you. Since you enjoy doing things that cost money, affiliate marketing once you learn how to do it well can offer you the financial freedom to do what you want.

Many thanks for following me. I am following you back. So since traveling is at the top of your list, where do you wish to go first once you are able to afford it?

Steph

You are very kind, Steph. If I were vacationing, there are so many places I'd still like to visit. New Zealand, Australia, and Japan come to mind.
If I have a horse to race, I would love to race at Santa Anita Park in California.

Hello Frank ... thank you for the follow. WA will be the perfect vehicle for filling the void called working long hours. Is that what they call being a workaholic?

After reading a couple of your posts all I can say is patience grasshopper ... patience. Soon you will (if you have not already) add developing the habit of creating content for your sites. This will be the crucial component of your quest for page 1 SERPs.

And it too will be time consuming, but it must take a priority over keeping up with your WA notifications and even progressing through the training.

Oh ... and don't forget you are retired and it's time to step away from being a workaholic. You deserve it ... your wife deserves it.

I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Thank you for the encouragement. I am not actually impatient. I'm merely an eager student who takes many extra-curricular courses. I enjoy learning new things, and there's plenty of new things at WA.
I'm having a ball!

You have a great mindset Frank, and that is going to get you where you want to go. I've found that Affiliate Marketing is simple ... but it's not easy.

Before you can really work it as a business you must master a minimum skill set. Knowledge is power really applies here, you seem to have the stamina for long study hours.

That's a great combination ... mindset and stamina for study.

I gained some good qualities from my parents. Some were genetic and others I was taught at a very young age. My brother and I use "hickory" to describe our dad. Tough as nails, afraid of nothing, and not an ounce of "quit" in him.
One of my beliefs is very simple. If others can do it, so can I. So if others can be successful through the WA program, so can I. And I will. No "trying". Just doing.
Thank you for the kind words. I'll learn everything I can, and apply that knowledge as quickly and effectively as possible.
I'm sure you'll be just fine!

Thank you, Harry. I have been following the training, step by step, not skipping ahead. That was Kyle's advice, and I listened. What I'm finding is that with the training, writing articles for the site, researching, and interacting with the community here, keeps me very busy. I like that!
Have you been with WA for long? And, how would you describe your success? You don't need to be specific, but any insight would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi, Frank, sorry about the delay in replying, but I've been pretty busy lately.

I've been with WA four years, and it depends how you measure success. If success is measured in $'s, £'s, or any other currency, then you could say I've failed miserably, but then I never built my site to make money.

My main site is about losing weight safely, healthily, and permanently, without the use of pills, fad diets and all the weight loss scams that prey on vulnerable people.

How hypocritical would it be, while advocating weight loss without the use of dietary and weight loss supplements, to have a page or another website, purely for monetary gain, promoting exactly what I'm opposed to?

Although I say my website is for information only and not for advice, and it is always advisable to seek professional advice, I have had a number of emails from people thanking me and saying how my website had helped them overcome many of their weight loss problems. That, to me, is a measure of my success.

If you would like to see how I became involved in weight loss, you can read it on my About Me page on my website, the link which you can find at the bottom of my profile. Best wishes.

Thank you for the reply, and the insight. I'm hoping to accomplish both helping others, and making money at the same time. I believe the two are not mutually exclusive.
Best of luck!

Hello Frank, thanks for following me, I'm now following you too. I'm set to retire in two years, I've been looking for a way to supplement my retirement so the wife and I could afford to do some traveling too. I believe WA will provide that. I don't have a lot of free time to work on my site, but I do what I can as often as I can. I think that by the time I do retire, I should reach my goal. I hope 2018 brings you the success and prosperity you're looking for. See you at the top.

Hi Frank, From my experience of WA over the last 4 months, there is plenty of training and plenty of opportunities for interaction with others in the community. It is the best site of its type that I found; well there isn't anything I found which is quite like it. It is also completely flexible in that you can learn of contribute depending on your time availability. I wish you success here. Best Alan

Thank you Frank for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. As a Premium Member you are probably aware of the AWESOME and FREE WA Keyword Tool we have unlimited access to.

This is the keyword research tool I have used exclusively after I became a Premium member 4 years ago and it has helped me many times to find awesome keywords that have led to Google page 1 rankings.

When you have the time, I created very popular WA Training Tutorials, Part 1 and Part 2, on how to use the WA Keyword Tool for keyword research. If you have not seen it and would like to learn how simple it is to use and a little about keywords, click the below link. Again, when you have the time.

Hi Frank and WELCOME to WA !
I believe that WA can be that vehicle and there is not a lot of opportunities out there for people who want to work for themselves on their terms...like ME. And maybe you also?
So learn here and apply all that to your NICHE...that will bring in the money. HOW LONG that will take and if you have enough monthly to travel to Monte Carlo, NEW York or else...is the question...
Thanks for the Follow. I will return that favor!

Hi Frank! Thank you for adding me to your network. I have added you to mine as well.

One of the main reasons I got involved with Wa and affiliate marketing is so that my husband and I can travel as we have always dreamed of. My husband planned for our retirement early and he has planned well. I have no doubt that we are covered for as long as we might live.

Best of luck in all your endeavors! I look forward to working with you.

Hello, Kyle. I'm having some trouble with Menus and Widgets. First, My Welcome and Story run together, and the Privacy Policy is too long. I don't know how to fix those things, nor do I know how to move the Privacy tab to the bottom. What am I missing?

You can update the Footer text/links within the code "Editor" inside of your WP-admin area.

Appearance => Editor

And then within the Footer.php file. Sometimes there is also a "footer" widget that you can add custom menus to and you will be able to add these links to. If you want to learn about widgets, you can do so here: Just be careful when you edit this because you can actually create a lot of potential issues if you delete the wrong code.

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! :)
