About Jpwealth
Joined January 2013
Hi!
My name is Jim. I'm in the process of reinventing myself, and taking a different approach to things. In particular, my career path. That is why I joined Wealthy Affiliate in January 2013. Learning all I can about internet marketing or affiliate marketing through WA is a commitment I am going to stay true to in 2013..., and beyond! "Some things in life, you just know it & feel it inside you."
I hope learning as much as I can about IM and applying it will lead me to live a life with more freedom. I have worked in the corporate world of medical devices for 28 years & I was just recently laid off because of a company downsizing. I'm fortunate to have found another job (less pay), but I have a new vision of how I would like the rest of my life to play out. I also hope to make new friends at this site, who share the same interests and dreams.
I live outside of Memphis, TN. I'm divorced, but I have two wonderful children that I love with all my heart. They live with their mother out west., and in a good year I get to see them on 4-5 occasions. Although my time with them is scarce, I am grateful to God for the wonderful relationship I have with both of them. I am also blessed to have two wonderful parents and two great sisters, and we see each other as often as possible.
I enjoy being in the outdoors, swimming, hiking, horseback riding, camping, and being with good friends. I often surf the internet, and will spend hours reading different articles of interest.
I thank you for taking the time to read about me, and I look forward to corresponding with you on this network. Let's have some fun, and learn something new each and every day.

Thanks for following me, Jim. The world is certainly changing and we have to make our own futures. It sounds like we have a lot in common. We both love our kids, love outdoors, and want to be in charge of our own future.

I hope you're working your way through the training so you can make this endeavor a successful one. I am a real newbie here as well, but if there is anything I can do to help you fulfill that dream, just ask.

Wishing you all the success.

Hi Jim, Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I deleted it by mistake. So sorry. It was a spastic error. So glad to hear you liked Rowling's talk. She inspired me too. Feel free to put your comment back in, and I'll respond.

Hi Jim, thank you for the follow. We've got alot of similar interests, and like you, I'm in WA to learn how to make my life play out the way I envision, not held at the mercy of an employer. It's a harder road I think, since we're swimming upstream against the flow of the "norm", but it will be worth it in the end, I am sure. Enjoy WA and please feel free to give a shout if you need anything!

Hello Jim… I too am re-inventing myself... I have been here a about a year... I know marketing, but knew nothing about Internet marketing... I have learned a lot. Wealthy Affiliate is like a constantly evolving, growing organism… It's a place where the growth and the learning never stops. The learning never stops because technology is constantly evolving and Internet Marketing never stands still… If you are here to get rich quick, you are at the wrong place. If you are here to learn how to build, grow, evolve and succeed as an online business, ethically… you are at the right place. There are no magic beans to plant or get rich quick schemes here… just total focus on the correct steps it takes to build a successful online business. We are very happy to have you join us and WELCOME to Wealthy Affiliate.

Every minute of every day a new idea or new way to do something pops up somewhere here. For that reason, there are new things posted here daily to be shared amongst premium members… new training, new blog posts, new WAbinars, tutorials, new shared ideas, member created websites, live chat, forums, new members and more…

t all starts at the top with the guidance of the Founders (Kyle and Carson) They are very active here and are more than willing to help you when you need it. (you can often find them in live chat most days.) They also provide excellent guidance and wonderful training. Jay (Magistudios) is also another one that is very helpful... and does many WAbinars that are always filled with great up to date information. You'll also find yourself surrounded by 1000's of members (old and new) that want to see you succeed… Do not be afraid to ask questions. if you need help… members are more than happy to help you find solutions and share knowledge. Post your questions in live chat (from your dashboard), post right here in your own space or "private message" someone you think could likely help you find a solution, but be patient. Here is my advice to you..."When in doubt, give us a shout!"

There is a lot to learn and share... so dive in... come join us, you'll be glad you did.
Thank You for following me and I look forward to seeing you create something great in the coming months. Julie

Well you're off to a great start it seems with a solid blog posts right out of the gate! If you can write, the technical stuff will come little by little, and your $47/mo was well worth the knowledge you'll get here on a daily basis.... if you just show up and that can be tough at first if you don't have the habit formed yet. Absorb as much from the training as you can, and start creating websites through trial and error.

Medical devices huh? I used to be a Medical Lab Tech. Did you travel a lot setting up those things and flying out to places to fix them or did you work in another part of the business?
Reply
jpwealth Premium
Thanks for the kind words. I know it will take time, but I'm liking it and where my mind goes when I think of the possibilities. I'm doing as you said and absorbing the training, and exploring other things here. I was in Orthopedics -Total Joints. I did travel for many years (too many), or medical trade shows and being in surgery with Drs.

It's my pleasure, Bullionaire. In your pictures, I could see that you have a beautiful family. Are you an affiliate for Karatbars Int.? I did get some lemons from my former company, but you're right, I'm going to turn those lemons into lemonade. I look forward to corresponding with you more, here at WA.

Pleasure to meet you Jim. That's wonderful that you have such a great relationship with the younger and older members of your family. You will probably cause a number of others to envy you for it. Sounds like you got served a nice big glass of lemonade from you former company!
And yes, I think David (IMR) and a bunch of others on here have a lot of wisdom and knowledge to impart so utilize that to help you find and solidify that new career or life path.

Hi Jim, to answer your question, I recieve no income from greeting Newbies. Income is only made by setting up a website and having advertising on it. I am a friendly person and enjoy greeting people and making them feel welcomed into the community. Being fairly new here myself, my main priority has been getting to know people here and encouraging others. My websites will go live in the next few weeks, and then I can begin the process of tweeking and refining them to provide extra income.

I have written several blog posts on encouragement and dealing with obstacles. My last post "Me, Myself And I" was an article about the overcoming adversity through adopting an Autistic/Develpomentally Delayed Child. Read it if you have the time, it mght give you more of a sense of who I am and what really motivates me:)

Thanks so much for writing me. I am glad you joined! Stay in touch!

Hello Sammi;
Please forgive my suspicious email to you. 28 years in the Intl. Med Device Industry has jaded my good nature. I can see from your profile and blog posts that you are a wonderful person whom no doubt has a heart of gold. By the way, I hope that flu bug that had you struggling, is long gone. Historically, Feb & March are the months that I usually get hit by it. Crossing my fingers.
I look forward to corresponding with you and seeing your websites when you have them up. I just created two sites today, but am unable to get in on each of them on the administrative side. Both sites are not accepting the assigned passwords that were given to me. Did you ever experience this? I'm thinking of going into the live chat to ask for help if I can't figure it out by tonight.
Thanks again for your warm welcome. I look forward to a long friendship with the person that I first interacted with on WA.
Be safe!
Best regards,
Jim

No Worries Jim,

I am just glad you escaped from the corporate shark tank! Everyone I have interacted with here seems to be genuine and have that rare quality known as integrity. That's what attracted me to the community in the first place.

What type of medical devices did you work with? DME or Total Joint Implants? I am in the Medical Profession as well. I work as a Nurse in Orthopedic and General Surgery. It's a wonderful living, great benefits for a top notch Non Profit National HMO. I love what I do....... but really want to work for myself and set my own hours. I have taken care of my Special Girl for 22 yrs and my patients for 18 yrs, but want a slower pace and to be able to relax a bit more. I have several people here do very well and thought- Why not me? We will see how things go when the websites are up:)

Appeciate you writing back. I would hate to have someone think I was a opportunistic weasel:) Stay In Touch.......I think you just might come to love this place. I sure do!

Sammi:)

Hi Sammi;
Sorry that I didn't see your reply from two days ago. And now that I am seeing it, there is no "Reply" button below your note. so hopefully this will get to you from your previous note.
I worked with total joint implants - Zimmer, Biomet, and Smith & Nephew. A busy and stressful International traveling life, working in marketing, compliance, and medical education. Unlike you enjoying your career, I look back at the years and think of how stressful my life has been until now. I received a severance package, so I have a little time to figure out what I will do with the rest of my life. LOL! I'm doing some consulting work, but I envision my next path with more freedom. A successful life as a "laptopreneur", as one of the other WA members wrote. Haha.
Like you, I am enjoying the experience here at WA. Everyone here really does seem to have a high level of integrity. what a nice change for me to be surrounded by such good people. Life is good! Well, I better go hit the sac. Early day tomorrow. Talk with you soon.
Regards,
Jim

I just wanted to drop by really fast and let you know I’m here to help you if you need anything. I recommend starting with the Online Entrepreneur Training which can be found at https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1

I don’t recommend programs lightly, and I hope you find Wealthy Affiliate as useful as I hoped when I recommended it to you. I don’t think you’ll find another program that sets you up better for success. I pay for a premium membership as well not because I need it, but because I believe Kyle and Carson have put together a product that deserves to be supported and $47 for the value they’re adding to new affiliate marketers is something I proudly support.

Let me know if you need anything along the way!
