About Grandadjimmy
Joined March 2014
Hi everyone, my name is Jimmy and I live in Scotland. I am a Dad and Grandad and have just recently retired. I was an engineer in the chemical industry for many years, although I did enjoy the work and the daily conversations with colleagues, I must admit that now I have been away for a couple of months I'm not missing the sometimes enforced long hours and the stress that came with it. Anyhow, over the years I have dabbled with Squidoo and Hubpages, I had some sales success ($50 to $90/month) with not a lot of effort. So I thought that now I have more time on my hands I could spend more quality time on a quality online business oportunity, I believe that I have found that in Wealthy Affiliate.
I will set up some blogs as I gain more experience, so look forward to chatting and working alongside my new colleagues.

Good luck to you all
Jimmy

Those are wonderful goals James and I can tell you firsthand that these are more than achievable. When I started out I had very similar goals and with some hard work and dedication, I exceeded any goals that I could have ever initially set.

You will get there if you invest some hard work and dedication to this, I don't have any doubt. :)

Hi Jimmy, I just followed you here from a recent post you did. As I love Scotland I thought that was a really good reason to continue to follow you! Love the Highland Terrier. Keep in touch.

Hello,
I too am recently retired from a 30 year teaching career. I have dabbled in writing on the internet and have used hubpages to do that. Now that I have found Wealthy Affiliate, I think I may try actual websites to get information out there rather than a variety of articles. good luck in your endeavors.

Godspeed in your endeavours! One day I hope to make a trip to Scotland...There are some Clyde farms and shows I would like to visit. Plus, my grandfather was born in Glasgow...so I thought it would be fun to visit there as well...:)

Hello Jimmy just a few words to say thanks for your blog post its good to see you! I am also a retiree, although I did not have much of a job with a boke back, I was an x bricklayer until a speeding car hit me in the rear of my car doing 130 klms per hour. So now I sit at home writing books, and trying to find ways to make money from home. I have done it all, this is the last straw for me. So Jimmy its good to read your post, I am in sunny Australia after being raised and born in Birmingham,England. I have not learned how to make the blogs yet? so I am looking for that. I guess there must be a lesson on that somewhere? I am just a beginner, but i feel this has some thing special that I like bye for now, I will follow you ... Revbrian

Thank you for the follow its fun here isn't it I have made so many new friends since joining WA but I have also achieved so much in the last 3 months for Example I couldn't write to save my life at the beginning Now I can write up a storm, for example I have written nearly 6 thank you for following responses but I almost never use them I always write a new welcome and thank you message which is what I am doing now to you.
You have definitely found the right place here at Wealthy affiliates to achieve your On-Line business dreams with WA's help and your hard work they will soon become reality,

I will follow you now and watch your progress.

Hello Jimmy and thank you for the follow. Nice dog, Westie? BTW I'm dreaming of Winter and a lot more rain. Our drought finally cracked a couple of weeks ago, but a lot more rain is needed to keep any Spring bushfires away. It's "bring on the cool weather" around Sydney for me.

Grandadjimmy Premium
Thanks AnnieB, yes Max is a Westie, unfortunately we lost him 2 years ago. Good luck with WA. I live in Scotland, we have had the worst continuous rainfall for many years here, the summer cannot come quickly enough for me.
Reply
AnnieB Premium
Re the weather, amazing the difference on opposite sides of the equator, isn't it? Max was a beautiful boy. My neighbours (originally from Scotland too) had one. They called her Scotia. I have a maltese, and a maltese shih tzu thingy ma bob mix as well - we think. Both rescue dogs so no way of telling what one boy is for sure. Never mind, both are loved now.

P.S. If you decide to upgrade to Premium in the next 7 days, you will get:

1. 59% off the first 30 days
2. unlimited access to MY help here on WA
3. all access to Live Chat, training, classrooms, private messaging, unlimited hosting/websites, and more...
4. Everything you need to build an online income!!!!!

5. BONUS!!!!! NEW!!! I have created my own personal Wealthy Affiliate guide that will help answer some common questions such as how to pick a domain, what kind of niche you should choose, and more!!!

Hello James, nice to meet you! I just got a notification that you just signed up for your free starter membership. Hey, congrats! You're in the right direction now. That's for sure.

I just wanted to recommend a thing or two so you can get maximum benefits. You're gong to want to set up and complete your profile meaning you want to upload an image & about me description...

This just lets the system know you are a real person, and that way you can get all the help and support you need and get going! To do that, you can click this link:

If you decide to upgrade to Premium within 7 days, you will get the following bonuses:

(1) You get an incredible 59% discount your 1st month (that's just $19)

(2) Personal and private access to my help, meaning if you have any questions or need help, I will be there to support you and give you answers

(3) Unlock the Affiliate Bootcamp, Certification Courses, Live Chat, and all the other resources available to build a profitable business and income

(4) BONUS: NEW WEALTHY AFFILIATE GUIDE!!!!!!! I have put together a special Wealthy Affiliate guide exclusively for Premium members only. In it, I will show you what I personally do in my affiliate marketing and more.

The only catch is, you've got to join Premium in 7 days though. Don't worry. I call this my "action-takers bonus". I am 100% confident you will be glad you did ;)
