I thought it was time I updated my profile. After a lengthy break, thanks to some chronic health issues, I have returned to Wealthy Affiliate. I am now retired and I intend to spend as much time as possible building my online enterprises. I will not be spending as much time on the wealthy affiliate platform blogging, commenting and helping others as I have done in the past. It is not my intention to aim to become an Ambassador, I've achieved that twice before and its no longer a priority for me. That doesn't mean I'll stop those activities altogether, it simply means that my business's will get more of my attention.
In my previous profile I didn't mention all of my offline achievements. Apart from a banking career, I have also managed other business as well as running my own. I have worked in the following fields, Banking, Horticulture, Agriculture and Sales and Marketing.
I have studied Business at University, majoring in Accounting and Business Law, as well as studying Environmental Science and one year of Pure Science.
At one point in my life I suffered such severe stress that it left me with a condition called 'Fog Brain'. This meant that I was no longer able to function in those fields I was experienced in. So I turned to Agriculture and Horticulture. But, a few years ago my body also caused me issues and I was unable to do too much physical work, so I turned to Gardening and Lawn Mowing.
Eventually I struggled to do even those jobs. It was then that I discovered Wealthy Affiliate. I have made many friends here that helped me both emotionally and physically. Just as I found my brain starting to function at some degree of normality thanks to the learning methods here at WA, my body started to deteriorate. This led to several months in bed and lots of pain.
However, thanks to alternative health professionals (doctors weren't able to do much for me), I gradually regained my motor skills and learnt to control the pain factor.
I am now able to go into the garden and help my wife keep it tidy,and I am also able to return to WA to recommence those business's I started some three years ago.
You never know whats around the corner so my suggestion to you is to Listen, learn, apply and give your new or current venture the very best chance of success.

All the Best. Jim

Superb goals Jim! You have a large network and community here at WA that you can leverage for help and support along the way, myself included.

It all starts with a goal...then is followed by action...then is followed by results. This is going to be how it pans out for you and I can't wait to hear about all of your successes in the days, weeks, and months ahead! :)

Hi JKulk1,

Great goals. You have given them per week.
So I immediately got on to mine and gave a period as well.
I think it must have helped to have weekly goals or?

All the best,
Markus

Hi, Not Sure which part of the world you might be. So have a nice day :). You have been on this WA for 2 yrs now, how long did it take for you to achieve your goal?

I have been working steadily towards them. I need to upgrade by bio because a lot has changed since setting those goals. Have I reached them? The answer us yes and no? Not in areas I expected , but I have used what I have learned in other online projects that have succeeded.

Hi Jim,
I am 58 years old. One thing I enjoyed when living America for 5 years. They see the age of so called retirement age and the period after is called the second life.
I like that type of thinking. I am 58 years old. I finished a BA hospitality management and tourist BA (hons) degree last year.
I plan to get married to my Indonesian girlfriend in Bali next year.
I plan to eventually move there a year after marriage. I am half way through a teaching English course qualification and hope to
start some volunteer project when there.
I believe we are as old as we think we are. Don't let others decide who we are and keep your dreams fresh in your mind and heart.
You can have fun life a head of you. Just take small steps towards your dreams each day. All the best wishing you well in your starting a business. I have just started and inspired being part of this community.
Thank you for following me.

HI and welcome to WA. It is great that you could join us however I am a little worried about the Aussie Rules bit. Being an Ex Sandgroper and having a Aussie Rules footballer father I am more into the real football - soccer.
That having been said if there is anything I can help you with please feel free to ask. I actually just launched another website on the 13th July and am stunned by Google analytics - I certainly did not expect to get so much traffic in such a short time. Not only is the environment causing some concern for some investments that can achieve 12%pa seem to be hitting the mark.
All the best and I will follow your progress with interest

Thanks Carol. Two of my brother in laws played for Ajax in the Netherlands many years ago and my parents were avid soccer fans, but I soon changed that. I will be looking in to Google Analytics as soon as I have finished building my first site. Be sure that I will be asking you questions. Thanks Jim

I follow it with a passion. But that doesn't mean I don't like other sports. Forgot to mention that my 17 yr old granddaughter was recently picked to represent Qld. in soccer. Jim

I take it you are in Queensland! - I was there myself until just over twelve months ago - now in adelaide and working from home allows one to watch the golf, tennis, tour de France,car racing and basketball to name but a few etc. I guess you follow the Brisbane Lions or maybe the Gold Coast Suns

I've been in Qld for about 40 years now, but I come from Victoria and I'm a die hard Magpies supporter. However, I do like the lions to win. I love basketball, it's another game I played when I was young. Jim

I do feel sorry for you - they are not doing all that well this year. R u on the Sunshine Coast or the Gold Coast. My youngest son was playing basketball at Carrara and I managed to get him into the States and he did his last years of education there and played basketball right through college. I started the exodus of Aussies to the States - a matter of who you know and not what you know

I'm on the Fraser coast. Collingwood's fourth on the ladder. Not bad for a team that's been riddled with injuries for most of the year. I wish your son every success. Jim

He is married now I believe - mother, meaning me, lost almost everything in the GFC so none of my kids want to know me and what is more they don't even know where I am but that is okay - I have to focus on getting back to being a millionaire
am off to watch the evening news - cath you later - have a good evening
