About Interprises
Joined June 2016
Hello, thank you for visiting my profile page!

PRIMARY GOAL: Moving to the Texas Hill Country. Begin generating dependable, recurring income from any location that offers reliable connectivity.

Been logging on to Bulletin Board Systems since the seventies and "browsing" the Internet since the early nineties; used the first version of text-based Lynx to visit sites. Calling that 'browsing' is a stretch, but it's what we had at the time.

During the mid-nineties, I built my first website around a health supplement that my wife used. Of course, we'd call that a "niche" today, back then I called it an "opportunity."

I registered the product name then worked out an arrangement with the owners of the product to handle online sales; they would drop ship the product. It sold well, and I had high hopes, but the owners began to squabble. After a lengthy discussion, the only solution was to shutter the site and sell one of the owners the domain name. Not what I'd hoped but business has its lessons. Turn them into something meaningful. Unfortunately, I didn't take the advice. That experience soured my attitude for years and years. I turned my efforts back to computer systems and their security.

So I'm not new to this, but I still love learning (have a great deal to learn), and it's time to get back in the saddle! WA looks like an association of like-minded people where we can learn valuable skills and lessons from each other. Looking forward to becoming a part of this community and sharing in the efforts.

Thanks for reading.

Hi Geary! Nice to meet you. I started on computers with DOS 3.0 and AOL for internet... with that slow screechy phone line modem. Remember that? lol

Yes! Allen, it was a beautiful sound! Had an Atari 800 and an acoustic modem when I first heard it. Was at Texas A & M at the time. Had just been married ('82) and scrounged up enough money to buy that thing. Will never forget the first time it connected to the Amdahl at TAMU. Before I put the handset in the cradle, they started "talking." It was a glorious moment and 120 baud was all we had at the time. Amazing how far we've come in 3 decades.

Atari 8-bit OS, DOS, MSDOS, PCDOS, CPM, MPM, CROMIX, it goes on and on. Great memories!

In my Business Analysis class we had to use Hollerith cards to do all our programming. I'm old... Ha.

Thank you for stirring those memories, Allen!

Nice history. I entered the realm of computers and the Internet in 1999. It is interesting to hear of your earlier experiences. I like the comprehensive, step by step approach at WA.

I do, too, Gary! Very methodical and so many people willing to help. It's a bargain as business expenses go. So many things have changed for the good since the "early days." Hope you have a great day. —Geary

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, Shawn!

I've still got to finish up all my training. Also need to get back to Kyle with some specifics regarding niche selection. It's just a matter of time management and I'm making some changes so I can devote more time to training and growing my online business. Will also set aside time to read all your blog entries, training, and websites. Will pass on whatever feedback I can offer.

I really appreciate your encouragement, Shawn!

I understand completely Geary! I felt a little overwhelmed at the start, because I kept going back and forth between lessons. It was my own fault of course but I understand what you're saying. Good luck with the training!
Talk soon,

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! :)

Absolutely! You're welcome. Your site is excellent, and I couldn't agree more; corporations have begun to take advantage of the consumer.

Even though I think "Capitalism" is a very good thing, many business owners have lost sight of what it means to be a "good citizen." That can change, though. Owners like you will make that possible.

Hope you and yours have a relaxing weekend!

Hey Geary, just wanted to pop back and see how you are doing? I noticed that you haven't quite set-up your account yet, just wanted to let you know there is a video on how to do this if there is any confusion. Setting up your account will lead to much better help here within the community as people feel like they can connect with you better (with an image and a description)

Just wanted to make sure that all was good and if you do need a hand with anything, just let me know! :)
