About Jimjames
Joined May 2015
Hi everyone, a couple of lines on who I am, where I came from, and where I hope to go.

Although born in the UK I have only lived some 4 years of my adult life there. The rest has been spent all over the world, notably around Latin America, hence I am tri-lingual with both Spanish and Portuguese as second native languages.

All my working life has been spent in oilfields all around the world. 38 years in all. At the end of October 2014, as a result of the still ongoing depression in the oil industry, my job suddenly disappeared along with tens of thousands of others. I wasted half a year trying to find another, but have seen that when one admits to already being past ¨normal¨ retiring age the stock response from recruiters is ¨sorry, the vacancy was just filled yesterday¨.

So ………….. I need something else to do and here I am, diving in at the deep end with zero knowledge or experience. These I hope to be able to gain quickly enough to meet the challenge of getting a business rolling before savings run out. I expect it to not be easy, but the normal oilfield working day is 12 hours so if I can dedicate even 70% of that time to the new business I would hope it should be enough to get me started relatively quickly. I´m sure some will say that I´m doing this for the wrong reasons, but believe me I can think of no reason better than the need to continue to eat!

Thanks all, looking forward to meeting many of you along the way ………………..

Welcome friend. Large experience in oil industry. A word of advice donot undermine your experience. I'M sure you have learned a lot in that industry, you had trained oil industry employees about anything in that industry, some of those employees are prospering as we speak because of your experience and training. Take that oil industry expertise, develop a website, tell the online community the ins and outs of it. Write a detailed article about, product, processing, and distribution of oil resource, the list is endless. You know the industry very well my friend. I donot mean that leave anything, but whatever you do online, never throw your accumulated experience away, you worked hard for it. Or make it second, third, or something project here online.

Welcome to WA, Jim! I never know what to say to someone when they come aboard because trust me, everything is already covered! It takes the luxury of time to build an onsite presence, so depending on whether you see your glass as half-empty or half-full will ultimately determine how successful you'll be. Hopefully ... it's always half-full (like mine). If you ever run into trouble, just send a quick PM and I'm happy to help. God Bless!

Vi que hablas español y portugués, que padre! Yo hablo español y pienso estudiar portugués este año. Cual idioma era más difícil de aprender, español o portugués?
Reply
jimjames Premium
Los de habla española dicen que Portugues es nada mas que Espanol mal hablado, os de lengua Portuguesa dizem que o Espanhol e nada mais que Portugues mal falado.

Fact is, anyone who can read one will pretty much understand the other just by applying 3 or 4 basic rules when translating (ll in Spanish is lh in Portuguese, ñ doesn´t exist in Portuguese so they have nh which sounds the same, many genders are reversed - like o leite in Portuguese becomes la leche in Spanish and so on and so on. I was fluent in both after just 3 months constant use (not at the same time!).

I noticed you haven't quite finished setting up your account here at Wealthy Affiliate, and just wanted to let you know you'll get better help within the community if you do. People feel as though they can connect with you better if you have a profile image and description filled out.

If there is any confusion, here's a video on how to set up your account: Just wanted to pop in and make sure everything was going well for you. If you do need any further help with anything Jim just drop me a comment. :)

Hey there Jim and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. I'm Wendy, and I'm here to help you along the way! If you ever need a hand or have a question, just let me know.

So you're here to learn how to make money, right? First things first, make sure you start by checking out the "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started" course (Level 1). This is a task based step by step guide that will walk you through setting up your online business. Here's the link: Something you'll soon learn about the community here is there are tons of helpful people always willing to lend a hand. Feel free to dive in and ask any questions within the community you may have. Those that interact are more likely to succeed. :) You can access the getting started classroom here:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started

You can also jump into live chat anytime, or drop me a message on my profile!

★★★How to Get Your Bonus★★★

If you decide to go premium within your first 7 days, here are the bonuses I will be giving you:

1. You are going to be getting a 59% discount on your first month premium - (that's just $19)
2. You'll get personal and private access to me. If you ever need any help going forward, I'll be here to help you out.
4. I will send you Jay's live video training "Live Case Study in Real Time" - you'll get to watch an expert build a niche website in REAL TIME!
3. I also am going to send you Steve's "Business From Scratch" tutorial. This is an awesome piece of training that can really clear up any initial confusion you may have.

But only if you upgrade within your first 7 days... (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyway I just thought I'd get in touch and introduce myself. Remember if you have any questions about anything please let me know. I'd be more than happy to help out.

It's great to have you here as a member Jim. I sincerely look forward to working with you and getting to know you better. :)

Your friend,

Wendy
