Hi. I've been attempting Internet Marketing for a long time. I am now ready to stop chasing get-rich-quick programs, and build out a real internet business.
Interests? I enjoy traveling and discovering other cultures and locales. So I'm building my site in the Adventure Travel niche! AdventureTravelPros.com
I have visited many different countries, and served as a missionary in 5 (both short term and long term). I speak 3 languages, and have studied about a dozen more. (English, Spanish and Russian. Currently learning Chinese.)
That's about all I have to share now. No wait -- there's my reason why. I have 3 kids in school. I want to be able to give them a lot more than I have so far. I want financial freedom. To be able to travel, to do missions work, to give to my church and to enjoy this life to the fullest.
I look forward to interacting with others here at WA. It seems like a real, warm-hearted and successful group of people online, and that's what I want to be part of.
Addendum to my Profile. Jan.10, 2017
I didn't want to make my profile too long, or take up too much of your time, reading about me. I think what I have written above is sufficient for an introduction. So, thanks for reading.
But, for anyone who may wish to know more, I have some other things to share.
For one, in regard to missionary work, mentioned above. I don't know what you think of that, or what images that conjures up in your mind, but let me tell you what I mean by that.
When we (me and my friends and colleagues) go in to countries as missionaries, we don't go in to bulldoze their customs, culture or beliefs. We don't tell them they are wrong. We go in as learners, as people who want to know them, understand their culture and beliefs and way of life.
We also want to help them in practical ways, if we can, such as helping to provide clean water, better crop science, or teach English, or other practical means of helping. Then, we also offer to explain to them who Jesus is. Many have not heard of him, or do not understand what his life, teachings, death and resurrection mean for them. We want to give them that option.
People all over the world want to improve their lives, thru better business, better homes, better food, better education, etc. And we think giving them the chance to understand who Jesus is, and giving them the option to follow him as their lord and savior, if they want to, is an equally valid way of serving people in many countries, helping them to improve their lives.
Those are my thoughts on missions.
Secondly, I want to recommend to you a person for inspiration, teaching and motivation. It is a woman named Terri Savelle Foy. She has a Youtube channel, with a ton of GREAT 8 minute videos on it. I like that length. You can fully develop a topic, idea or theme in that time, but it doesn't take a full hour or 30 minutes like a lot of teachers/ preachers do.
Terri is great at talking about creating a dream or goal [relevant for those of us at WA], and going for it. If you want to listen to someone talk about moving ahead, succeeding, getting out of a rut, and making a difference with your life, from a godly point of view, I highly recommend Terri to you. (Just search her name on YouTube, you can't miss her, Terri Savelle Foy.)
Note: don't be shocked by her voice. She kinda talks like a young girl, not a confident, world-changing adult-- which is ironic, because that is what she is. But, her content is what makes her worth listening to.
I hope this addendum has been of some value to you. I wanted to share it with those on WA who are interested. I really like this community, and am becoming more and more involved in learning from and teaching in this community, so I wanted to share a little more about myself here.
Well, that's it for now. I welcome your thoughts, feedback, and responses to my point of view.
