About JohnTerry
Joined May 2014
Hi! I'm a complete newbie to blogging and creating web pages and on-line marketing and such. I've been thinking of doing a blog for awhile now, and only within the last few days have I thought about it as an income producer.

I'm getting close to retiring from my job, and have come face to face with the reality that it will be a huge cut in income. I'm more fortunate than many, in that I wouldn't be broke during my retirement years, unless I live to be really really old like lots of my forebears have done (92, 93, etc.).

I have a lot of interests and things I'd like to communicate about on a blog, and it dawned on me that I might as well create some income while I'm at it.

I'm crazy about my two little grandkids, and my wife and family! I like outdoor activities like hiking and canoeing, and I like country living and farm related things, although I live in a suburb because of my job. I'm also interested in various kinds of music (I play guitar fairly adequately). And also I'm an enthusiast for motorcycles, sports cars, and aviation, to name just a few of my interests.

And my faith in God is the main thing for me, along with my family.

I think it will be fun to get to know some of you here!
JohnTerry's Goals 3
Money Goals
Answer #1: I'd be happy to earn enough so that in my upcoming retirement, my income does not drop! how much is that? I haven't done the math right now, but I'm thinking around $50,000 per year. I know it will take quite a bit of time and effort to reach that though. That's why I'm getting started before retirement hits!

Answer #2: I was just contemplating the question a few days ago, and decided that I would like to work my way up to a goal of $375,000 per year. I understand that it could take quite awhile, several years of patient work, to get to that. But that's my long-term goal.

Answer #3: While I'm still working at my job, I'm thinking that I will be hard-pressed to put in more than 8 to 10 hours per week working on this. But once I retire, I plan to work it about as much as I currently do my job, 40 hours per week, until I get some passive income starting to flow. If/when I reach my long-term goal, I would like to cut back to maybe 20 to 30 hours per week, assuming that I do get the passive income flowing enough to allow that.

Hi, John, is your picture of the house is your house? where are you from? I want to stay there for couple of months, I like outdoor, I live in suburb here near seoul. I like your sports car, it is just everything looks very nice! If it is not excuses, I want to visit your home.Its Nice!!!
Reply
JohnTerry Premium
Hi Wishyu,

The pictures of the houses on my website are not my house, they are just houses that I like how they look. We plan to build a house in about a year or two, and I am looking at those houses in the photos to give me inspiration.

And the same thing is true of the car in the photo. It isn't my car, it's just one that I like how it looks and dream of getting one similar to it some day.

Best wishes to you!

How are things going today? Just wanted to pop in to see how things are going with you thus far and how your website/niche is coming along.

Hope you are rocking it John and of course (and as always) I am in your corner if you ever need anything!

PS. Today is my last day for Premium bonuses, if you are interested in getting them make sure you upgrade today.

JohnTerry Premium
Thanks Kyle, I appreciate it. I'm getting past a few hurdles and working my way through the training. I've got a website created and I've completed the lesson on all in one SEO. Now I'm working towards writing some content. Still gotta learn how to put in graphics and pretty up the web page. The template I am using right now looks very plain vanilla, and when I tried importing a jpeg it was way too big and I couldn't resize it or get it positioned like I wanted, so I deleted it for now. Maybe that will be covered in upcoming training.

BTW, so far I'm very impressed with WA. I'm glad I found it.

Hey John,

Great to hear about your progress thus far. It sounds like you are moving along nicely. Kudos!

As for the images on your website, we recently had a Live Video Class that covered everything about Wordpress Media management and this is definitely going to help you out:

It is an hour long class and I really think it is going to fill in a lot of the blanks for you! :)

Hey John,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well John and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

Hope all is going well. Just want to drop in and make sure that you had found your way around WA.

Quick Hint:

Do not post questions directly on your profile page because they will be missed if you don't have many followers. Rather use the "live chat" and connect directly with members who will give you an instant answer to problems you might have.

Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions - This community has some awesome individuals that will help out gladly.

Thanks for the tip, Christene. So far I'm a little overwhelmed by all the content, and I haven't had enough discretionary time to get familiar with the user interfaces, the ways of interacting with my fellow WA-ers, and the courtesies and "rules of the road" so to speak. I've spent a little time getting through the first 2 lessons, and I was amazed to see that I had 35 followers within the first day or so. I'm loving the interactions with the people I've encountered so far, and I'm very optimistic for the opportunities on WA. In return I followed everyone who is following me, and hopefully on Saturday I can spend some time catching up a bit more, and responding to all the people who have kindly greeted me here! :-)

Christene9 Premium
I am glad to hear that you find some followers already, WA is a friendly community and you will meet many new people who would offer their help and skills. Support is crucial for success and that is why I recommend WA above any other program. It is hard enough to learn how to become a marketer, but even harder if you have to do it all by yourself. I am sure that you will reach many goals and learn valuable skills from this platform. Please shout if you need any help.

Thank You for following and Welcome to WA John:

I have been with WA since March of 2014, after using a few other programs. I have found WA to be one of, if not the best program on the internet. Kyle’ video tutorials will help you get your website ranked. Just follow the courses step-by-step.

I currently have 5 spots on the second and third pages of Google, along with being rank # 2 on Bing and # 1 on Yahoo search engine for Affiliate Incomes.

Some of my past experiences with different programs range from, investing more to go further to complete dead end. One program drags you on for a month, making you buy more promotional tools, and never helps you get a decent website up and running.

If you get stuck or have any question there is always someone at WA willing to help. Or If you have any question PM me. If I don't have an answer, I will help you find it so we both can learn.

You can also visit My websites I created using the WA system:
www.affiliateincomes.org for more information on Affiliate Programs and HomeBusiness Solutions.
www.handicapgolf.net for golf produces, reviews, tips and MORE!!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate John!

I wanted to stop by and officially welcome you to WA and ask you if you have any questions about getting started?

The "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)" course is my suggestion on where to get started and you will find this on your dashboard or within the main menu:

Thanks for the welcome, Carson. I don't know enough yet to know what to ask. I'm working my way through the training, and I'm sure I will be ready to ask some questions once I do that and spend a little time looking at the chats and such.

So far it looks like a fun place to be, and lots of interesting and nice people to meet. I'm looking forward to getting more familiar with it all soon.

Hi John,

It's ok if you do not feel that you know enough to ask questions. I'm sure as you get started with the training that will change quickly :)

You're going to have a blast. Keep in touch.
