About Jimroberts54
Joined June 2018
Hello everyone! My name is James (my friends call me Jim) Roberts, I am a U. S. Veteran and served 22 years on active duty in three of our military service branches. I am very proud to have served.. I am now retired and enjoying life. My original hometown is Wheeling, West Virginia, but I now reside in beautiful San Antonio, Texas where the winters are much less harsh.

Since my retirement in 1993, I have actively pursued a career in the online business industry working from home, without much success. There are so many scams it is hard to distinguish the good from the bad. I feel that I have now found the right venue to fulfill my dreams and I am looking forward to meeting and getting to know as many people here at Wealthy Affiliate as possible.

Thanks for following me, Jim.

Thank you for your service.

Welcome to the WA family. Success can be found here by following simple directions in the lessons.

I'm also new to WA. I went Premium May 4 (Joined April 22). I'm here at WA to learn how to supplement my fixed income.

I am from a military family. My dad is retired Air Force, my son and brother Army veterans. I am a Navy veteran.

My brother also lives in San Antonio with his family and visits Abilene regularly to be near our parents. He has just graduated with a degree in social work.

I graduated last Fall with a degree in Chemical Dependency Counseling. However, my greatest love is volunteering for the Military Veteran Peer Network here in Abilene. There are various locations throughout the state of Texas.

I work with family members of military veterans, especially women who have experienced adverse childhood experiences from sexual trauma in adolescence.

What branches were you in?
What was your favorite duty station?
Why did you move to San Antonio?

I see you have taken advantage of the $19 introductory offer for Premium membership.

If you enjoy the WA community, look into Going Yearly as soon as you can. I hear there is a lot more interaction at this level. I went Yearly June 1 since I saved up this past May (using my birthday money and savings from tax refund and book sales on eBay).

The benefits will be sweet now that I'm dedicated to WA for a year.

All the best,

Louisa

Welcome to the WA community, Jim, and thanks first of all for your service! Both our dads served in WWII, U.S. Army and RAF, respectively. We honor Veterans!
Thanks for your follow and we are following right back.
Yes, there sure are a lot of scams out there. It took a lot of research for us to get to WA and we are so happy we found it.
We are still in the training stages and taking it at a pace where we really understand the material. We also love the helpful community here.
Wishing you every success,
Colette and Philip

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! :)

Thank you Kyle, I appreciate your generous offer to help me and it may be that I will definitely need you. Right now I am focused on the health and fitness industry which includes diet and nutrition. I realize this is a broad niche and I will have to break it down a bit. That is where you might be able to lend a hand. Thank you again very much for your kind offer and your time.

Hi James thank you for the follow am following you back. Yes you re so right, there are so many scams, just saw one yesterday in my mailbox promising $10,000 in a week if I deposit just $250 for a binary program, it looked so real, had TV personalities on the front and I started to hmm...maybe!!..lol...luckily I did some research and found reviews that ...yep scam all over it..you are in the right place and if you are diligent in what you learn and apply it, there is no reason in the world why you also, can be successful at internet marketing.

Yeah, they're just not worth the time and effort. I was caught up in one for 18 months, the owner was scamming us, but he ended up paying some of us back, not in full, but I got some money back. So no more MLM's for me.
