About Hi11ardwm
Joined January 2017
I worked for government for thirty years, first as an accountant, senior accountant, senior fiscal analyst, and manager. I earned my bachelor's degree and Master's degree from the University of Phoenix. I am now retired but I found that my retirement is not enough for me to live on so I began applying for jobs. All I ever seem to get are letters in the mail saying others who applied were more qualified than I am. So now I am trying to supplement my retirement through WA.

I have five grown children and two granddaughters, and I am happily married. My wife has been my anchor for many years. we live in Bellingham Washington, which is about 30 minutes south of Canada. We love it here. its a beautiful part of the United States.

I love going out in the bay to fish and crab. I love hiking and camping. I have hiked many parts of the Pacific Crest Trail and plan to continue that. I exercise regularly and eat healthy. I promised my wife when we first married that if I am alive when I am 95 we would walk the beach here and hold hands. I have every intention of keeping that promise. And she's holding me to it. I have a great sense of humor. If you get to know me your find out.

So, that's about all for me.

Welcome to WA - lots to learn here- stay focused - go through the Certification Courses first - you will get confused or frustrated from time to time - ask lots of questions - people are here to help you. 

HERE ARE 3 WA'ers Training Posts - they helped me - one is vocabulary you use here - one is a detailed use of your dashboard to find anything you will need - one is a plug-in to add to WordPress - that will help you build your sties. Hope they help - they did me This one I wrote - deals with how to "close" for the result you want. Stay with it - you don't need a wish of good luck - you need a plea to study the material and stay at it no matter what - it will change your life and hopefully the people you touch with your message.

Hi and thanks for the follow.
Hi, I read a comment you made in one of the , I think, building a website forums where you said this was not working for you. I'm a newbie here and you made that comment a month ago, I see your still here and you seem to have accomplished a lot. Were all your problems solved? So far I seem to be learning a lot of stuff I never new and am considering becoming a premium member. Would you recommend it? I am following you. Thanks for any reply!

Good morning! Yes, a while back I was having issues setting up my website. Since I am new at that it was difficult for me at first but now that it is all set up I am doing well. No, I haven't yet made any money but for me it is the content and the message I am sending out so I am sure money will come eventually. If not, I have a backup plan but will always keep creating content on my website.

The reason I went premium is because I did some research before coming to Wealthy Affiliate. That research shows that if you do not have your own .com then most people will ignore your website, especially advertisers, because they do not perceive you as being serious and will not advertise on your site. Maybe you have a different experience? So to be safe I went premium. And I get more perks from WA so that was helpful too.

Thank you for following me. I will return the favor. Good luck and if you are serious, do not give up.

Thanks for a follow :D Yes economy is tough for everyone.
Same for me if i ever tried to apply for jobs there were more qualified candidates than i was.So i start to look to internet and i founded WA website in which i joined up,though i wished i have joined WA in 2008 or 2010.I love USA,i wish to live here,but things are tough up everywhere in the world.I do live in Norway and i have job only for 5 months,so i am looking for income or some opportunities online.
Family is biggest asset,other things go below.

All the best,

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! :)

A very special welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Hillard!

Congratulations on your smart decision to join us here.

My name is Jason and I am one of the very fortunate members here at WA.

I just thought I'd welcome you and help you get started on the right track.

Before you get started, you should set-up your account right here at WA. Upload a photo and write a little bio. You can share some of your histories and share your goals. This is a community and folks like to connect to "real people". Members with a filled out profile usually get more replies and activity.

Watch the VIDEO below to learn how to do this properly: You will learn a lot within the next few days and you will meet a bunch of new people who will help you along the way so don't be afraid to ask any questions.

To start the training, just head over to the Online Entrepreneur Certification getting started courses (Level 1).

This is a task-based course that will get you taking action on daily tasks that will lead to you building web assets right away.

Here is the link that you will see within your main menu labeled "Get Started Here": Just take a look around, get to know how the site works, and see what WA has to offer.

Let me know if you have any questions and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Hello, Jason.

Thank you for the welcome. I have just finished setting up my profile and am getting started on the training. It's nice to me you.

Hi, Hillard,

It's nice to meet you too. Let me know if there is anything that you need help with as you proceed. Have you gotten a chance to meet Kyle, or interact in the live chat as yet?
