About Garyrethford
Joined August 2014
I'm 54 years old, and have 3 grown children (this is my youngest daughter Dawn in my profile picture), and 7 grandchildren. I worked in construction for 35 years until I became disabled due to severe rheumatoid arthritis. I love to work on the internet, it keeps me from going crazy, lol, I'm just not ready to sit around doing nothing. I served in the U. S. Army from 1978 to 1985, and have been stationed all around the world. I like to garden, and do wood crafts in my spare time. I love to go fishing, and read, watch football, movies & documentaries, and play video games. I have a cat named Max, and two dogs, Penney, and Molly. I live in Kansas City, Mo....Go Chiefs!!...Go Mizzou Tigers!!

About 15 miles N of the Lake of the Ozarks Gary. If you are ever over this way, give me a holler, I have some great waters I fish here. (ponds, pits & small private lakes) Maybe we could go fishing together.

Hi Gary,
Thanks for the follow.
Construction injuries... Man can I relate to that! Some year back I blew out both shoulders and had surgery on my right one. It was so painful that I decided not to do the left.
Now, years later, they both ache because of the physical stuff I'd done before.
So, like me, we'll bot succeed in WA because unlike most people think, construction guys (or gals) are smart. Why? Because they are now out of construction and into WA ! YaY! :) Tom

Hi Gary, I also have several critters I'll be posting pics soon. I also rehab baby squirrels,rabbits, opossums, bird just about whatever has fur or feathers. The main reason I do it is because the babies have to weigh 40 to 60 grams before the wildlife rehab will take them. Yes! It is a ton of work especially working a reg JOB and online. It gets a bit much but once you see the short videos you will understand. Have a great day.

Gary,
Either Gardening or woodworking could be your niches, you must choose which one you are more comfortable with to write great content about, making short videos whilst performing some task related to your niche would also be great to generate a high ranking in Google(highly desirable).
Reply
garyrethford Premium
I have 35 years in constr. & remodeling, would'nt that be a better niche? i.e. ( electrical application's, plumbing, roofing, framing, floors, decks, bathrooms, kitchens, vinyl siding, replacement windows ) you name it I know how to install it or fix, or build it.
Reply
Jonicas Premium
Gary, take your pick, just try to stay to 1 specific aspect at a time.
Construction or remodeling is too broad.

Specialize a specific topic like bathrooms, it would be great with some supporting HOW TO videos, like HOW TO CHANGE A TAP or HOW TO CHANGE A BASIN.

Basically, choose the one activity that gives you the most enjoyment and run with it.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Gary!

I hope that you are enjoying your first day here within the community and have had a chance to poke around and see what we have to offer. As you get started I'd like to suggest working through the "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)" course as it will give you a very solid understanding of how Internet marketing works and how you can leverage the Internet to earn revenue.

This training is on your Dashboard and can be found in the main menu:
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1

I am here to help at each step of the way so please do not hesitate to ask for anything :)

Hey there Gary and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! I am Simon, an affiliate of WA and I am here to help you along the way.

A little about me - I run a successful Internet marketing agency from my home base in Mexico and my clients are mostly in the UK. I have a staff of 7 to support our clients and we’ve been in business for over 6 years.

I use Wealthy Affiliate to spread some of my knowledge and help people like yourself get off the ground. If you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do let me know, I’ve covered almost every part of Internet marketing and selling online.

In my view Wealthy Affiliate is not only a great place to start learning in how to create an online income, but the only resource you will need. However be warned – there’s a lot of information on this site. Take a deep breath Gary, this is where it gets interesting!

As a new member here, you should check out the Online Entrepreneur Certification getting started course (Level 1). This is a task based course that will get you taking action on daily tasks that will lead to you building web assets. Here is the link that you will see within your main menu labelled "Get Started Here".

Here is your link to set up your 2 free Wordpress sites with full hosting -

HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUS
-----------------------------------------------

If you join Premium within the first 7 days, here are some bonuses that I am going to be giving you:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)

(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there.

(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus"

But only if you join in your first 7 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways Gary, thought I would just introduce myself and if you have any questions going forward, let me know. :) Wonderful to have you as part of the community here at WA!

Your friend,

Simon
