About Ian840
Joined November 2014
I am a very recently retired business person who has had a very long working life in very many roles. Basically I have always worked for myself in a variety of fields, which has most certainly given me a very broad knowledge of business practices in general.

After many years of trying without success, so many "over night riches" offers from many "squeaky clean and honest" gurus, I finally found Wealthy Affiliate - for that I am eternally grateful.

It is very hard to believe that in this "dog eat dog" business world riddled with dishonesty, deceit and corruption, one can find such a site as Wealthy Affiliate which has so much integrity and help to offer, for such a small financial outlay.

I am also so fortunate to be now living in a small country town in rural Western Australia some 160 kilometres from Perth, the capital city of the our beautiful state.

After so many years of "tire kicking" with this site, I am now channeling my efforts albeit slowly, unreservedly to build a solid internet marketing presence. Also to befriend and help as many members here as possible.

Hi Ian
A fellow Aussie from Sydney - now living out of Bangkok
Like you I am retired, & consider finding WA an incredible find.
Apart from keeping my brain ticking & learning new technology I would like to put some dollars in my bank.
I lack confidence & need to give myself a kick in the butt to move forward with the training.

Wishing you great success here with the WA family

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! :)

I dont regret a thing and I am so happy that I did; the additional support, training and positive vibe is such good motivation to do more. I have followed you and will keep an eye on your progress, feel free to ask me any questions you may have. If you follow me then I will be in your contact list for easy reference.

Welcome to the club and hopefully we can have a chat soon.

Hello Ian and thank you for your message. It's great to meet others who are also "semi retired" and working online. Helps keep the mind active! You're from Western Australia - I've been to Australia but only to Sydney/Melbourne/Queensland, perhaps Western Australia on our next trip!!! I do hope that we can help one another but please bear in mind that I am still learning here!!! If there is anything you need, please don't hesitate to let me know.

We have many retired folks here at WA that decided to move into the online space to start a business online. What I can tell you Ian is that it is completely possible and you are going to be able to take any niche/interest and turn it into a full time business with some effort.

Everything you need is here to get you moving in the right direction including the support Ian , so just let me know (drop me a reply) at any time. :)
