My journey with WA>

Last Update: January 23, 2018

Hi everyone,

My Progress: I started out very slow. I signed up with WA over a year ago. I talked my wife into letting me get this so I could make some extra money to supplement our incomes. I wanted to make our life a little easier.

In the last year, I have went from job to job. Not finding anything that paid enough or I wanted to do. We were and are still struggling for now, not enough money or time to do what we want to do.

About two months ago, I finally got it through my thick head (I can be a lug-head so often), I am never going to have financial freedom working for others. It's just the nature of the beast. I knew in my heart there was a light at the end of the tunnel and it was WA. I just needed to put in the time and effort.

I am still working full-time for someone for now. But on weekends and after work, I devote myself to succeeding in building my own future through WA and my website.

My ranking was around 33,000 or so when I started back two months ago. By working the lessons and really giving it my all, my ranking is at 606 and climbing. I am learning so much here and meeting so many cool and helpful people. I love it. I will never put this off again.

My Niche: I am sixty-one years old. I love playing video games (I know, I'm just a big old kid). I remember playing "Pong" at parties in my younger days.

So I decided I wanted my niche to be about something I like doing, video games. I call it "Gaming with Grandpa". I love playing games with my granddaughter, Sierra, when she gets to visit. Plus, I love to write as well.

My goal is to have a website that looks at various angles of video gaming, good and bad. I want to explain how video gaming can help older adults, parents, and kids. Hopefully, I can show how this new technology can bring families together and not separate them.

I want my website to be fun, entertaining, informative and helpful.

My Successes: I am finishing up lesson 10 in level 2. I never thought I would get this far. I am learning so much here and having fun doing it. Plus, it is something I enjoy doing. It is my website and I am helping it grow. I know if I keep at it, it will succeed.

I'm also writing again. I have a better attitude about our future. I'm doing it, not just dreaming about doing it. I'm creating blogs and starting my own business, not working for someone else. I'm working for my family and our future. I'm creating something I can pass on to our kids and grand kids.

My Three Month Goals: continue to learn and grow. Become a better writer. Expand my internet business. Make some money (any amount at this point). Most of all, love my wife, Cindy, better.

I want to learn how to help others succeed at this as well, not just in business, but in life. We all need each other. We give comfort as we have been given comforted, play it forward.

My Six Month Goals: I hope to start seeing some real generated income from my website. I want to make some extra cash to fix things around the house. I mainly want to start feeling stress-relief of from worrying about finances so much.

A big one is to start taking steps so my dear wife doesn't have to go to a job five days a week. I want her to be home as she does too. She works so hard and we didn't plan very well for retirement. WA is a God-send for us. I want to get her involved with our internet business and start to create her own websites.

So that's my story and I'm sticking to it. God bless everyone and good luck.

LET'S GAME!!!!!!!

I finely realized that your profile photo is not of you. Why don't you ususe the photo of you gaming for your profile? I'm not against gay marriage, but I really like knowing who I'm talking to. Great update, you should add it to your profile too.

Why did you mention gay marriage? I am married to a beautiful wife named Cindy for 33 years. The photo is my granddaughter, Sierra who I play video games with. I have thought about adding a picture of myself. johnny

SoSorry about the misunderstanding. You make no mention of it, but show a woman's photo on your profile and are named Johnny, whwhich can be a woman's name. I'm sorry about the mistake, but I really like to have a feel for who I'm talking with. Thanks for clearing that up.

You go grandpa! I think it rocks that you are doing a blog about gaming as it seen as a young person's domain. Best wishes for your WA journey!

That's why my first two sites didn't really work for me, I wasn't quite passionate enough. Now my third site that I am working hard on is a subject I can talk about under wet cement. I can talk about it until people's eyes glaze over! Now that's passion ;)
