About HarveyBrown
Joined March 2016
Hello I am a retired Government of Canada employee. Through my employment I have had the opportunity to travel north, south, east and west of Canada. While on these trips I always found time to visit entertainment centres where a live band was either playing the music of the 50s, 60s and 70s. In particular Rhythm and blues (R&B), Soul, Disco, the Blues and Jamaican music. Don't get me wrong I like all types of music, including Rock from the same time period. I have been in love with music from a very young age and that love affairs continues. It is probably one of the only things I will not retire from.
My hobbies are reading, mostly books on African, African-American and Jamaican history, crime and legal novels, martial arts history and novels; cooking, watching movies, especially those made in the 1930s and The Godfather One and Two; and of course listening to music. The genre of music tends to change with my mood, but most of the time it is classic "Lover's Rock", Reggae R&B and Soul.
My life time study is Japanese Karate, which I have studied and taught for the past 45 years.
I guess you can say I am a continuous learner and this is a new adventure that I am looking forward to pursueing.

Good to hear from you. I am new at this venture also and look forward to learning everything. I do notice as we are older it takes longer to grasp some of the training. It's nice to know I have a community to help this slow learner. Best wishes to you.

Hello Harvey,

I did not know that you could travel much more North than Canada? (LOL) It seems that you too are a cornucopia of interests, I too have a very mixed and long directory of interests.

Hope we have the chance to chat sometime, I too have an extensive travel history mine was mostly in the southern Pacific basin.

What I enjoyed the most about my travels was learning all the different cultures, its amassing how adaptive we humans are!

Thanks for the follow, I am following you now as well.

Hello Calvin, you have to have a father who was a bit of a nomad and possess the same gene. Well the Territories are a part of Canada, but extremely north.
Experiencing other cultures is always the plus in travelling, but you have to get off the reservation (all inclusive) to achieve that.

Hi! Happy to connect here! I really enjoyed reading your bio. And I like that you are smiling in the picture. I like smiling :).
Too bad we live so far away, otherwise I might ask you for Karate lessons (this is a wish I had since I was a child and I was watching movies with Bruce Lee (I know he is not Japanese)).
I wish you a great weekend and would like to keep in touch,

Hi Harvey,
I am late to get back to you, I am so sorry. I am usually much better .
You have a quite interest martial art root Japanese Karate . I was
Brazilian Judo national champion in 1964 but quit it two years later
light concussion and gave it up completely, I also practice Japanese Karate but didn't last.
I am also a great fan of any nice band and nice music as they stimulate us and make us happier .
Once you do sports it is not easy to leave it behind I started when I turned 8 but it gave me a lot of self confidence and peace.
It is good to see that we are surrounded by sport lovers and practitioners .
I wish I will have a chance to shake your hands ( a sensei hands)- in Vegas .
All the best Harvey,
Marcus

Hi Harvey;
Thank you for sharing your story with me. We seem to have a few parallels -I was hooked on music in the UK with The Beatles when I worked near Liverpool and I attended the first public performance in London of the Rolling Stones!

We can explore this interest at some later time - some deadlines to meet right now!

Thanks for bringing me to speed about you. Great start. I also worked in the government setup back in Ghana, as a trade promotion and market intelligence staff. Obviously I also had a lot of international exposure, attending trade fairs and conferences. I think generally, I have not listening to music, embracing all of the kinds you like and more especially streams of reggae music and afrobeat, from African music base.
I have enjoyed soccer, playing and watching for many years. My team is Chelsea in the BPL.
I am now leaving in the US and seeking new adventures to totally make me helpful to others back at home. Let's see what we get out of here. One love.

I enjoy many of the same things you do. You must have had fun visiting all the many places you have been. I enjoy different types of music, it always changes my mood also; and Godfather - classic! I notice you did not list Godfather 3, not exactly up to the standards of the other two!
Reply
HarveyBrown Premium
Hello Rebecca, the Godfather series was classic yet unique on so many fronts. Marlon Brando had to actually convince them that he was the Do. The scene on the bridge was to use a new approach to Sonny’s massacre and the first two followed the book fairly close. The third was a mixture of the current news at the time. The Vatican Banking scandal, the supposed suicide of the banker and the involvement of the Illuminati. Acting was still superb but not as good as the first two.

Yo Harvey, good to met you. You may be interested to know that I wrote a digital novel set in 1968, Chicago that has a lot of African-American relations entwined in it. America at that time has always fascinated me. Anyway, this seems like an extraordinary opportunity to make my dreams come true. Has it been that kind of experience for you?
Reply
HarveyBrown Premium
Hello Kevin, 1968, was a special time in United States history. The music was off the hook, the movies spoke to Black people, regardless if they were Blakexploitation and of course we had the Civil Rights movement. You have a lot of material for several books.
Wealthy Affiliate (WA) is different for each individual, our dreams and aspirations are different. I joined WA, to keep my mind active and challenged. If I make money down the road great, if not then I will have to make an executive decision.

Hello Sue, sorry for the slow response, but I had to think about what would be the best course of option to respond. Your niche or passion should be something that you can write about. It can be one of the two subjects you mentioned. Find an area in either one and go from there. One of Kyle’s suggestions, and I used it to find my niches, is to plugin your key words in to Jaaxy and see what comes up or use Google. I hope you are taking advantage of the courses and the tasks that goes with them. Most of us started out going through those. Good luck

Thanks for follow. You give me the chance to did what i already did.
I saw your story and i have couple of questions.
First of all you are interesting and special person because you do what you do as you mention in your story.
Second, you are in Wealthy Affiliate for 2 years.
1) Did u had any experience at Affiliate Marketing before you join Wealthy Affiliate?
2) How much you failed?
3) When did you begin see profit?
4) You can say between this 2 years you learn a lot, but now the job is not going too good because a lot of people are online?
Thanks once again for follow and give me the chance to learn from you.

Hello Walthyt, thanks for your follow. When I joined Wealthy Affiliate (WA) I did not have any Affiliate Marketing skills. I did not even know what it was. I have not really failed being here, because I am still learning. I have not seen any profit, because that was not my reason for joining WA. I am retired so I needed to find ways to occupy the time that would be wasted watching television or something mundane. There are approximately four million people online, not all of them are into Affiliate Marketing. Like any business, there will be competition. Example would be burgers. How many of them are out there selling the same product and are being successful. To create a strong business you have to put in the time and it is hard work. It does not happen over night. If there is one thing I can give to you it is advice. Don’t make money the reason you are at WA. You will be disappointed if you expect immediate returns. Most brick and mortar business take more than five years to see a profit.

Hi Harvey,
I want to thank you for following me. l too love music which was introduced by my father. He worked for the U.S. government as a international broadcaster. My father was a actor and singer who performed in movies and television prior to his broadcasting career. He majored in physics and chemistry because his parents wanted him to become a doctor. After completing his degree, he started his career as a recording engineer in the radio to get in to show business. He loved show business but you don't have much of a family life. So, he applied for the broadcasting position with U.S. government until his retirement. When he came home from work he went down in the basement(his music room) to play music and sing.

Hello Neelofar, like anything that we do if we want to be good takes practice. Your father sounds like someone that fully understood that concept. When I had a mobile disco, there was never a weekend that was not spent in the basement listening to new and old music to see how they could be blended. Wealthy Affiliate is the same. You have to spend the time getting use to the concepts of research, writing and managing the website.

Hi Harvey. My mother's favorite saying to me (almost daily). Count the day lost you didn't learn anything. I've lived 84 years doing my best to do that. Tried to no avail to instil it into my 3 children. They all wish they had listened today. Tried with grandchildren. They already know everything. Lol

I have a 32 yr old son in the Navy that likes to blow up stuff electronically, which is only right as he built 7 computers before he got out of high school. I was born in the year of Sputnik, so none of this world existed for me. Having to continuously learn is a fact of digital life, at least for me.

Hello Penny, thank you for the compliment. My site is yet to make any passive income or any income at all. That is my fault, not working on this as hard as I should, but then again I began this to keep an active mind busier than it is already. Making money would be nice but not the focus of my time on Wealthy Affiliate (WA). Having fun and using time at home on something I love are my goals.
I did visit your site and I love the theme and the niche is interesting. One suggestion I might have, which is not unique, is to add some graphics to the posts. A picture really does save on words, it can also enhance those words and make them richer. Merry Christmas Penny to you and your family.

Hello Damo, my journey in Black music started a little before EW&F. My father and mother were big music lovers and had a collection of Jazz, Blues, R&B, Ska and Reggae. So it was a natural progression to love Soul music and Hip Hop at the beginning. I think the Godfather trilogy was a turning point in movie making so was Sam Pekinpah’s The Wild Bunch. I still watch the Godfather over and over.

If you click on the Site Rubix button on the left, a drop down will appear, go to the Site Domain button click on that. The second subject down is transfer of a domain, click on that and proceed according to instructions. I did not have to do this since I started from scratch.

Hi Harvey, nice to meet you! Thank you for following me as I am just over a week new with WA and plan to get started with the training so I can share all the great rewards others have attained in their WA so far. I wish I would have found WA sooner, but no time is a bad time for anything. Yes, and continuous learning is essentially the greatest reward in life! I wish you the best in your journey and reviewing your progress.

My dear friend as you love music i would suggest you to listen hill songs on youtube . they are worship songs, glorifying Jesus. my favourite songs are 1. Here I am to worship, 2 Here I am Down on my knees again. 3 oceans. My non worship favourites are Sugar and Happy by Pharrell williams . I would suggest you to hear some indian songs also. If you are interested to listen Indian sons though you may not understand but they will touch your soul please let me know. Bye

Hello Shilpi, I do listen songs on youtube, but not religious ones. While I am spiritual I do not follow the doctrine of Jesus. It would be nice to really listen to Indian songs but like all other genre of music, both the instrumental and written words are important to fully understand the song, why it was written and the mood it is trying to provide. Thank you for your suggestions.

Thanks for the follow! I study history and also became interested in genealogy. Just thought I would mention because of your interest in history that you may want to tie genealogy in with your interest, you can look up records for free at familysearch.org

just created my web site today, kickbacked.siterubix.com hope you enjoy!

Hello Tim, I do dabble in my family's genealogy, but not on a full time basis. I will take a look at the reference you suggested.
Your website could do with a little colour, but it is a good start.

That was the next question I was going to ask, how do I give my blog posts some pop instead of looking so bland! Also thanks for the reply back!

It usually depends on the theme you use and what graphics you download. One software I use is called Canva.

Hi Harvey,

Thank You so much for adding me to your “Following”!!!

I feel you on the Music Bug!!! Started buying Beatles LP's with my paper route money when I was 7 (1965). And then took Classical Piano from 7-15 years old when piano gave way to high school sports!!!

Retired in 2011 and am in the process of teaching myself guitar - both acoustic & electric 6-string and have two 4-string bass guitars!!!

I like to listen to "everything" - also depending on my mood - people look at my iTunes Library and are amazed at all the different genres I listen to!!! ;-)

I have seen a lot of internet programs over the last 4 years and this looks and feels right!!!

I would greatly appreciate it if you would please let me know if there are any important tips that you think a “Newbie” like I am to WA can benefit from!!!

Best Wishes for Your Continued Success!!!

HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!

Kevin

Hello Kevin, yes the music bug did hit me and for several year I tried to play a string of instruments, piano, mouth harp, voice and guitar. I had minor success with all but like anything else practice is a must. I have never really been a Beatles fan, although the album Sargent Pepper's and a few after that. I am a Rolling Stones fan from day one, something about Sir Mick, Keith and Brian. I do listen to all music even hip hop today. While not impressed there are one or two artists that have original songs.
In terms of tips for Wealthy Affiliate, do the courses and lessons. Kyle and Carson have put together a very comprehensive lesson plan. The other thing is to complete the tasks with each lesson. They will solidify what the lessons are trying to teach you. Last but not least ask questions. There are some remarkable people in the community and most of them are willing to help.

Thanks for following me. much appreciated.

Do you mind if I bounce a concept off of you?

I've been working on a project for affiliate marketers for a while now. I would appreciate your thoughts if you have the time.

Every now and then I would like to get the opinion of a wide variety of affiliate marketers, like a sanity check.

Would you mind if I share it with you?

Thanks

Just got started into WA and have alot of work to do to get my business going and I'm still working a day job. Hoping to retire in a couple of years from the Oil Refining business for a big Oil Company. Take care and talk sometime.

Harvey, How about a little "doo Wap":)

I'm like you, I love it all at certain times. Well, don't get mad, but I can do without hiphop. I just can't get into it. And their videos are close to Porn. Well, I've shown my age, I guess.

I like you and I'm gonna follow you. You sound like my kind of man.

HarveyBrown Premium
Hey Luther, you must be close to my age, so one thing I will ask, do you remember the early days of Rock, especially the Rolling Stones? A lot of our parents thought that was the Devil's music. Where it has transitioned is both good and bad. I can't say I like all Hip Hop but some is quite good, some yes is both vulgar and close to porn. Yes I must definitely will do some Doo Wop. One of the great periods in modern vocals. If you have any favourites drop me an email. Always happy to play something I have not heard in a while.

Harvey, are you any kin to James, "I feel Good" Brown?:)
I could go on all day with those golden Oldies.
Maybe some time, later. It is so easy to get distracted on WA and not get anything done. I've set a goal to get my site up today.

Thanks for replying. Much success to you.

Wow Harvey. It is interesting to still see people who still like classic movies and music. I also love music and movies from the old time, both American and Egyptian. I love watching the God Father, James Bond movies, Rocky's movies and much more from different times. I like new music and new movies as well.

Harvey, congratulations that's the way to retire, have a vacation when you can still can. We just don't forget where we came from, the source of everything that we may give the credit to Him the giver of our life. To do the things you love, you won't retire on that, especially music, We are in this WA where we can shout to the world the good things in life, the best way, share to the whole world what you have loved to do, it will be remembered. No one can take it from you. WA is where we have the liberty to work as a boss and enjoy it at the same time. Like work and play.

Interesting profile and what a great path you've followed. I'm also a music lover (but aren't we all to an extent...LOL!)The Japanese Karate sounds REALLY AWESOME!!! I love the kick butt martial arts type stuff but then again I'm a soldiergirl who was trained in hand to hand combatives so go figure, Right? lol!

I used to do Krav Maga training which is Israeli Street Fighting and it gave me an adrenaline rush. The thought of being able to take out 20 dudes or people all at once by myself was the reason I signed up for the training. Although I didn't get that far with the training, I did learn some basic fundamental self defense techniques.

Well nice to meet you Harvey. Take Care and thanks for reading my blog post!

Also thanks for the follow. Be blessed!

I read a lot too. Used to be religion, business and investing. I used to listen to music only in the background. We're pretty different huh:) :). I was into Qigong at one time. It came naturally to me and I was able to feel Qi flowing flowing through me when I practised Taiji with Qigong.
Nice site you've there. Cool

Thanks Larry, we are not that far. I still study spirituality. When I was working I studied business ad investing and still listen to music. I study Japanese martial arts which means basically the physical is first then we study the internal. A little different than Chinese martial arts that usually start with the internal and go to the external. Now that is a generalization but I think you understand. Thank you I am enjoying putting it together.
