About Gilster53
Joined November 2021
I have been a singer songwriter in the in the Rock business for over 50 years. I recently retired from my day jobs. I had two food trucks in Ålesund Norway selling Tex Mex food, I had a shoe repair shop, and I was active performer, playing two to as many as 4 days a week. I was working my but off. Making great money, but man what a job.

Then came covid. All my music gigs were canceled, they closed and the venues. my food trucks had to close, and that left me with my least profitable business the shoe repair. the monthly expenses alone from the food truck were pushing me towards bankruptcy. I exhausted my credit trying to keep the business going for my daughter. I had already plans to retire being 68 I thought it was a good time for it. I had a mental break down left my marriage of 37 years and bail out of life.

My daughter is the hero in my life she jumped in and went to work and saved the whole thing. I moved to Thailand where I could live on a minimum pension and am slowly getting back up again. I did not want to go back to anything that resembles a rat race, so I started looking for a way to make a living online. I know there are thousand of success storys. Why not I got time I am used to hard work and I am very creative . that my story for know but stay tuned.......

Those goals are certainly feasible with the right amount of dedication. I've heard of some sites making over $50k per month.

Hey there, I am so happy you've completed your money goals, am sure they’re attainable. All the best, wish you success in your endeavors.

Please follow the training and apply what is taught all is explained within the lessons. How to make money online video by Kyle As you go along the coursework, ask as many questions as you like to get clarifications, mark your question as community and someone will always be here to answer your inquiries. You can also blog your questions, that's the Pencil, top menu, choose Blog at WA. I believe there's a limit to blogging on the WA blog roll for the first three months.

Again you may like to post about why you choose WA, how you come about your niche, what are your goals for this week and the following, aspirations, etc.

Remember the WA community is no judgement. It is an open discussion. We help each other, we were all at one point where you are right now.

(The sky’s the limit however please be aware this is not a rich quick scheme however more like a long term commitment that takes months of consistent work.)

Welcome to WA.

Best wishes

Fantastic Raymond! I know you are going to become a rock star within the online world before you know it. I am looking forward to seeing you succeed at ALL of your goals and am behind you ever step of the way if you need it.

Hey Jason, thanks for the welcome . I look really forward to working with you and everyone at WA.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Great goals here. The training will help you understand how this works so you can gauge how much time you want to spend to achieve your goals. With your determination to do the training and to apply it, you will be amazed at how much you can achieve.

WA is a very friendly, helpful and active community. We like to help new comers achieve success. The Online Entrepreneur Training which is a self-managed program. You can do it at your pace. When you have questions, you can ask them in the comments section after each lesson.

Now that you've outlined your goals, you can start working towards them. Remember that this is a journey and not a destination.

There is a lot of work ahead, so the more effort that you put in, the more you will achieve.

As Kyle (one of the owners) likes to say - success is very cumulative in nature.

Every action you take will add up to much greater success. I can tell you that when you earn your first money, it will all become very REAL and it will lead to much more success.

The more time you can spend working through the training here at Wealthy Affiliate, the sooner you will have the foundation that you can build upon.

We do wish you much success.

How are things going today? Just wanted to pop in to see how things are going with you thus far and how your website/niche is coming along.

Hope you are rocking it Raymond and of course (and as always) I am in your corner if you ever need anything!

PS. Today is my last day for Premium bonuses, if you are interested in getting them make sure you upgrade today.

Hey Raymond, hope you're doing good :)

Since you've been here a little while now I just thought I'd reach out to see if you needed any feedback on your niche idea/website or if you need any help with anything? If you do, don't hesitate to let me know... I'm always happy to help :)

P.S. if you go Premium then you'll be able to get direct access to me via private messaging & I'll be able to "hold your hand" and help you get everything set up to make it even easier for you.

I'd highly recommend it if you really want to become a success. Here's the link again for you to check it out: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/order/signup

I'd especially recommend it if you're new to this & feel you need as much help as you can get.

Hey Raymond,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(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. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Raymond and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

Kyle Premium Plus
Here we are, 10 days into your experience at WA. :)

I hope things are going well Raymond! I want to remind you of one thing, your hard work and dedication IS going to pay off. Keep working through the training, communicating within the community, and of course, ask for help when you need it.

Just heading out for a bit here, but do leave me a message if you need a hand with anything. You should have Premium communication back for an additional 7 days now, so hit me up when you get a chance Raymond!
Kyle Premium Plus
Just wanted to shoot you a quick message and see how things were going thus far Raymond? I am here to help if you ever need a hand with anything, just holler!

PS. Also, quick reminder. Today is the last day to get your first month $30 off discount on the Premium membership. If you ever want to move on over to a Premium membership and get the bonuses, you can do so here.


No rush, no worries. Just a simple reminder here. :)
