About HeitstyTom
Joined June 2016
Former newspaper reporter with a journalism degree, dabbles in photography. I am currently the front desk manager of a small hotel in Fallon, Nevada.

I found WA in 2016 during a very poor time in my life. I just lost a job, and that has resulted in problems I am still dealing with at the end of 2018. But, the entire situation has me thinking outside the box, so here I am.

In addition to being the ever-present employee, I'm also a novelist with a book available on Amazon and another in the rewrite process, and I maintain a small Paleo following (totally inadvertent).

I've recently moved from beautiful Colorado to Nevada, which is taking some getting used to, but I have found some beautiful places here, as well (The cover photo for my blog was taken about 50 miles from where I now live, out on the 40-Mile Desert.) I've had to move in with my parents, which has been difficult, because my cat is with friends in Colorado and is waiting for me to come get her. I also have three grown children in Colorado.

It looks like you are having trouble with your bank card. The charges are from Canada and sometimes banks have protocols for foreign charges. You might want to go in a talk to your bank. That's what I had to do.

I am now following you. I wish you much success.

Regards,

Thank you. I thought of doing a photography site, but, in the grand scheme, I'm not that good a photographer. Hanging out with professional photographers doesn't really help that assessment of myself, lol, but I'm learning a lot from them and improving. I'm actually a writer, and I fell into the photographer trying to break an ugly bout of writer's block.

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, Kyle.
Thanks for keeping up with me while I'm powering through. I appreciate knowing someone's looking on to help.

My niche is actually not a problem. I know what I want to do, knew even before I found WA, actually. My problem is that I just don't know how to implement my idea and make it work for me.

Well that is exactly what you are going to learn here Kelli! :)

I have spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and I have broken them down within this video: Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic (the make money part!)

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

If you have any further questions let me know Kelli. :)

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, Kelli!

It's good to see you here. I tried my hand at journalism but found it too stressful. You mentioned the Old West, I lived near Tombstone, AZ in the early 80's.

I look forward to helping you build an online business that will fund your travels and adventures.

I'm here for you,
Gary

HeitstyTom Premium
I would love to see Tombstone, though I worry that it might be too commercial. (?) My son and I were just at Virginia City in Nevada and we were disappointed with commercialized it had become, though we were there more to photograph existing buildings that we were interested in. It's hard to do when the world is full of tourists. Most of my work has in ghost towns around Colorado, and we did go out to Bodie, California while we were in Nevada.

Thank you for the welcome. It was through your "Writing is a Super Power" that I found WA.

Hi, Kelli!

I'm so glad you found my website and your way to WA. You'll have all the help you need to make your online business successful. Writing is the toughest part for most people, so you're way ahead of the pack.

When I was in Tombstone, it was a little touristy, but in a fun way. Of course, that was 30 years ago. On Sundays, the locals dressed up in period costumes and some had gun fights in the street. I have fond memories of that time.

I'm on the East Coast and my brain is used up for the day.

I'm here for you,
Gary

Making money online is really simple. While there are some technical ins and outs, which we'll help you with, making money online boils down to: 1.) Build a Website 2.) Add content each week. 3.) Be patient.

The content on your website must be quality content and it must be precisely targeted. The Keyword tool will help you with that. And be patient, it takes time and effort before you see results, but the results will come.

The training will walk you through all this, but please read the following article. It's reveals exactly what you must do to succeed online and the results you can expect. HOW TO CLAIM YOUR ACTION-TAKERS BONUS

All these are yours, but only if you join in your first 7 days. This is my way of encouraging you to take action and make your online business a reality. I'll be here for you every step of the way.

Dig into the training, ask for help when you need it and keep taking the next step.

I'm here for you,
Gary
