Hello all and thanks for looking at my profile, my friends call me Gaz (hope to make some new friends on here) and I am from Yorkshire in the UK.
I have just turned 61 years young and I am married to Shell (for going on 12 years now).
I left school at 15 and have worked ever since mainly in the Engineering and Manufacturing industries but have also tried sales (not pushy enough) and even been a delivery driver, everything from paint to fish (boring).
As I am heading towards retirement I have decided to take the plunge and try to build an online business. I have been stung a few times so quite cautious for obvious reasons. I am not afraid of having to put in the work but I need to see there is a reward for that work. Also I don't believe there is such a thing as a get rich quick scheme (except the lottery of course)
I am looking into affiliate marketing for the first time and found Wealthy Affiliate purely by chance on You Tube by watching someone who said they were not a member but just reviewing it, so decided to have a look and see what the possibilities are for building a sustainable income between now and retirement in a few years time.
My interests are Photography, Football (Soccer for those of you in the USA), Music and have an ongoing addiction with trying to find the ideal weight loss program.
If you drop by and have read this far please say hello and I am always grateful for any advice that will help me make a success of this journey. I would also like to network with other WA members in the UK.
