About Geoffyt1
Joined April 2016
Hi! my name is Geoff and I live in Geraldton Western Australia. Im 63, married with 3 children - all boys, and two grandchildren. My wife is from the Philippines so call Cebu Philippines my second home. Im very thankful that we all enjoy reasonably good health, and happy relationships, so just by that I think I have achieved most of what is important in life.
I have been working in the Mining industry for about 25 years, the last 8 with BHP Billiton and enjoyed my work very much, but then about 1 year ago they made me redundant, which was very upsetting to me at the time - I wanted to retire from this job in 2 more years. since then I have been working only part time. My goal has been to set up some form of online income going into retirement, so have been trying different things and have been scammed a few times, fortunately without losing too much, but I refuse to give in - I know it is possible; I just have to keep trying.
My passions in life are - healthy living and nutrition, swimming, spending time with family, helping family and friends in the Philippines, Classic cars. ( I plan to own one in retirement - it will be one of my goals )
I am a newbie to affiliate marketing, so have a lot to learn, so will be working through the lessons with enthusiasm and taking action.
Looking forward to it all, as well as communicating with other people on the forum and getting the help occasionally that I know I will need.
Oh and the YT in my username should be pronounced 'whitey' (a nickname)
Geoffyt1's Goals 3
Money Goals
#1 - I would be happy earning enough to live on comfortably in retirement, which would probably be about $3000 to $4000 a month.
#2 - I would be ecstatic to earn $10,000 a month or more.
#3 - As I only work part time, I have a good deal of spare time to invest to achieve these goals, probably about 10 -15 hours a week on average.

Your goals are totally realistic and when you achieve the first one, it will be just a matter of scaling to reach the second one. The Internet works wonderful when you have your formula for success down which you are going to be getting from the training here at WA.

Once you get this formula down the sky is truly the limit Geoff! I look forward to working with you and seeing you make your goals a reality. :)

Hi Geoff.
How are you? How is your Wealthy Affiliate experience coming along?

I wanted to pass by and share a little story with you.
You see, I joined WA in 2007, when they only had a premium access and no free starter membership. It was a hard decision to make but I took a chance on WA and I never looked back.

In October of 2015 I celebrated my 8 years anniversary with WA and sure enough I blogged about my experiences, my ups, downs and everything in between.

Please do check out that blog post and let me know what you think :) Thanks!

Alex

Hi Alex, have read your 8 year blog post and inspired by that. I think we all have our ups and downs, but just need to pick yourself up and try again when you fail. I guess thats how I found WA.
thanks Alex

Thanks for reading.
That 8 years of ups and down were mostly due to my own mistakes... I am smarter now ;)

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 Alex,
Yes getting into the training and thinking about my niche - it will be something in the healthy living field; I know this is too broad, so digging down into it at the moment. will pass it by you when I decide.

Geoff.

thank you Alex. I have read your blog as well as other info on WA and was most impressed with your honest and genuine presentation, so decided to use your link. I am 63, recently made redundant, and looking for an online income going into retirement. I don't have any superannuation and will otherwise be relying on the pension. I lost a lot of money during the financial crises and have also been scammed a few times in my attempt to generate some income. looking forward to a fruitful relationship with you and Wealthy Affiliate.
regards Geoff.
