Ramblings from the old man
In case you hadn't noticed, I am rather "long of tooth" which is another way of saying I am older than dirt. Now that you know this, two things become evident. One, I have a lot of life experience and two, I am closer to the tomb than the womb.
So what is an old retired geezer like me doing here? Well, the golden years ain't so golden. After working all of my life and saving up money, raising kids, paying for a house and having travelled all over the world i am now sittting around listening to my arteries harden and bored due to lack of intellectual challenge more world's to conquer.
Quite by accident I came across the Wealthy Affiliates program on my own and immediately had my curiosity piqued. First reaction was wow. Second reaction was this has to be the mother of all scams, so I checked it out - nothing negative. I signed up and then found out this is on the up and up and believe me, I can smell a rat like a cat!
You have two young guys (at my age everyone is young) who have developed a helluva business plan and become very wealthy. The fact that they are rich is a good thing because you don't want to model yourself after someone who is flat broke and a failure. People without money are not usually good employers. In order to maintain their lifestyle they need people, and those people are you. There is enough pie here for everyone to have a piece.
I have found that hard work generally pays off and if you rely on someone else to make you wealthy you are in deep doo doo. In my case it is not so much the money as it is the work and realization of success. Many young people today feel they are entitled to success and don't want to work to earn it. Here you have the tools provided to you for virtually no cost with a rate of return that is out of sight.
My onlly regret is that I did not find this opportunity before arriving at my dotage. Sacrifice if necessary. Stay focused on the goal ahead. Have patience - this is not a get rich quick scam. Put in the due diligence and don't let some old guy like me show you up. See you guys and gals (watch out ladies) in Lost Wages in January (unless I assume room temperature).
