Hello, this is Kevin - I am a Veteran of 4 Tours of Duty in the Scam infested world of Online Work at Home Programs. I hope I have found a home that I can rely on to finally achieve some success.

After a 35 year career in Commercial Banking I was forced to retire in 02/2011 after an accident. And subsequently forced to accept a major pay cut from a steady 6 figure income to a merely sub existence on Medicare Disability/Social Security with the last of three children still only 11 years old. I have had two strokes in the last six years - probably from all the stress...? While the time available to devote to him is great, the lack of income has proved extremely difficult to provide for him and the family what is necessary!

Especially since he was blessed with exceptional athletic abilities which require not only school sports but club sports as well (it has become a year round endeavor) - his dream is an NCAA Division 1 Athletic Scholarship to pay for his college degree, like his two older sisters did. He is a high school Junior now.

So, I have spent the last 4 years wading through the cesspool swamp of Online Work at Home Scams. Money wasted that I could have used for the family.

I believe I have the technical skills to make this work, but have been a ship without a rudder in a sea squall!

I am looking forward to hopefully being a part of a community where I can have some support instead of wandering aimlessly alone in the internet wilderness.

Prior to my accident I was always outdoors - camping, fishing, hunting, hiking, golfing, four-wheeling, and taking pictures all the while (love photography). Since I can't do those anymore (except photography) I am teaching myself how to play the guitar - I have four of them - 6 String Acoustic, 6 String Electric, and two 4 String Electric Bass Guitars. From 7-15 years old I took Classical Piano Lessons so I developed a great ear to be able to play by ear when I don't feel like reading music or don't have the sheet music to play by. It's a lot of fun and a great stress reliever too.

Also, to let you in on some more History -

Every-time I place three of some punctuation mark or emoji - They Are For My Three Awesome Children!!!

And A Story I Can't Make Up!!! Real Life!!!

When I was 10 years old I made up my mind to be a Navy Fighter Pilot flying off Carrier’s supporting our Army & Marine’s on the shore. At the time – 1968 – it was Vietnam – lots of TV coverage of F-4 Phantoms & A-6’s hurling off the decks fully loaded for bear. And, since my Father was an Aeronautical Electrical Engineer at North American Aviation and was a key man in the building and development of its’ now famous Wind-Tunnel (he actually tested the X-15 Model and the P-51 Mustang Model in the Wind-Tunnel before a prototype was ever built, his last testing in the Wind Tunnel was for the B1-B Lancer) fast planes & flying were in my genetic code.

Therefore, upon graduating high school I went into the Navy Recruiters Office to sign myself up and when the Officer read my application he informed me that I was DQ’d……

What? My Dream. What? Because I broke my back surfing when I was 16 no branch of the Armed Service could take me! Reality set in….
I played Football, Basketball, Baseball, Beach Volleyball, Golf, a total thrill seeker & They “couldn’t” take me…..

After that news, I decided I had better use my brain instead - and went into Banking….

Then at age 29 got married, and at 32 we had our first Baby 7/’90, then 7/92 while camping at 8,300 feet I had a stroke at 5am… nothing bad I thought it was a caffeine type thing – did a 15 mile round trip hike to a lake at 10,000 feet with my 2 year old daughter in a pack on my back – did some fishing – and hiked back down – two weeks later the Doctor told me I had a stroke and had a golf ball size aneurism behind my right eye that had to come out now. However, my wife was eight months pregnant with our second daughter due in October 1992. Nonetheless, it had to come out and my own 911 story happened – on September 11, 1992 I had brain surgery to remove the golf ball – fully expecting if I came out of surgery I would wake up to a 30-day premature born little baby. How could my wife not go into labor with all this going on I thought – Tell You What – One Strong Woman There!!! Didn’t deliver until 10/16 – Amazing & Blessed.

After surgery in conversation with the Neurosurgeon I mentioned not being able to be a Navy Fighter Pilot – and he said in no uncertain terms I would have been dead before I left the centrifuge in training – you know where they put you in a capsule like thing and spin you around to do “The “G” Thing”??? He said the inside of my head would have exploded from the G-Force applied to the aneurism.

So, was there Divine Intervention when I was 16 surfing that morning before basketball practice?

Had I not broken my back on the record – the Navy would have let me in and I would have been dead before I met my wife and had three totally awesome children!!!

So, I don’t believe in being handed lemons and taking it lying down – LEMONADE ANYONE???

Thus, this forced retirement due to injury is just the window closing on my banking career and the door opening here for me to work from home and be here for my wife and kids!!! After all they deserve a lot more than that for having to put up with the likes of me!!!

So once again, as before, I owe this opportunity all to Divine Intervention!!!
Thank You for Stopping By and Supporting Us in This New Career of Mine!!!

Best Wishes for Your Success!!
Kevin

I've got to get busy though and finish all the Levels of Training!!!

If So, What's It Like???

Warm Regards & Best Wishes For Your Success!!!

2 levels in one month is great. The most important thing is to take action on everything taught.

I have not done the bootcamp. Only the certification course. The reason for that is that I do not want to make a website about how to make money online without actually being able to make a good amount myself first:-) But there are different opinions about how the approach should be, but that is mine:-)

All the best and keep in touch.

Kevin, I am still somewhat connected to the disability work. I do still talk with folks, give them direction and I have a web site with lots of info and a team of experts in the field that I can refer clients to. I am not burned out but it is much more difficult to make a good living in that line of work anymore unless you want to carry hundreds of clients which I do not choose to do any longer. Helping folks I will always do just can't do it to the level that I once did.

I am a premium member here, I think my 2nd day in here I joined as premium. If that doesn't show in my profile I am unsure why.

I am game for taking the journey together and yes, the music of the 60's,70's is still awesome..but I guess if I think about it I also enjoy the 50's music (before my time-lol) and I can even throw some of the 80's in there! Maybe I should have just said I like music!

Sincere wishes to you here as well my friend!

Cindy - My Sincere Apologies - I didn't look up top of your Bio and see that - Obviously Still A Rookie Here!!! ;-(

But Ya - 2nd Day you did it - That Pretty Much Says It All - YOU ARE SERIOUS!!! ;-) I was still skeptical up through my 6th day but by then I saw the "No Doubt Value" and took the plunge and WOW AM I HAPPY I DID!!!

I took 8 years of Classical Piano from 7-15 years old so I got a great base on music to start with.....

Started buying up Beatles LP's at 7 yrs old 1965 - with my paper route money - my older siblings (all five of them) were extremely jealous!!! ;-)

Now I Love Everything and listen to whatever I am in the mood for - a lot to choose from eh?

Thank You So Much For The Contact!!!

You helped me Crack The 1,000 Ranking Ceiling!!!

WE WILL BE SUCCESSFUL AT WA!!! NO DOUBT!!!

Again - All The Best Wishes For Your Success!!!

Kevin

BTW: the three of !!! or ??? I do annoys some, but it is for my three kids... A True Blessing,,,

Wow - You Know First Hand What I Went Through!!! Amazing!!!

I was Turned Down 3 times by SSD Until I got In Front of An Administrative Law Judge and her Vocational Expert - and they said I'm toast and apologized for the declines - Great People Those Two Are..... ;-)

So, Can We Take This New Adventure Together???

I started here about 3 weeks ago & WOW!!! What A Different Place This IS!!!

The benefits of going Premium are INSANE!!! What an Incredible Increase Resources, Tools & Camaraderie Here!!!

You Should Really Look Into The Premium Membership if you are serious about setting up a viable honest online Business!!! It really is incredible!!!

Unbelievable!!!

So, Your Music Tastes Line Up WIth Mine Too!!!

Great Music From OUR TIME!!! Eh???

Your Wealth of Knowledge on SSD/SSI/Everything There Should Be A Boon On The Internet - of course if you are burned out on that, it is totally understandable - must be frustrating work dealing with people like me and their cases!!!???

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! :)

What to do when you have three equal Niche's?

Mine are Music, Photography and Outdoor Life (not necessarily in that order)....

But they all three go together right? At least for some people?
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
Hi Kevin, the problem is, all those topics aren't really niches, you need to narrow them down more.

Music: Pick a genre you like most and possibly promote products on how to create that type of music.
Photography: too broad. Nature photography is pretty good, you can promote cameras.
Outdoor life; Again, this is very broad, you need to narrow it down. Maybe nature travel?

I'm just giving examples here, but you can see where I'm going with this. Pick the one you like most and then go from there.

Nice, finally to settle base and say hello.

It is an investment in yourself. The best decision that you could ever make.

I will always be here for you and others on this platform.

Hey Kevin, I wanted to stop by and personally welcome you to WA. Rest assured everything I mentioned about them is true :)

Whether you're here to build a business, a website or just want to learn and make money online, this is the only place that will show you the best ways to do it.

Here are my 2 quick recommendations on getting started out the best possible way:

1. Please complete your account sign setup. This is just a simple 1 minute process that will better help myself and WA know more about you and your goals. I'd like to get to know you better and help you get going.

2. After you've done this, check this page out: (I think Kyle or Carson already recommended this). This is where everyone who joins WA should begin as it will explain everything.

The course is the most important part of WA. It will guide you to success!

And that's it!

Believe me when I say this stuff works. Just follow the instructions and if you have any questions Kevin, feel free to leave them by just posting a reply here. I usually respond within 24 hours and will be more than happy to help you out!

One last thing I want to mention:

Currently you're a Starter member of WA. This is completely free and you can do a lot of things such as build 2 free websites, get access to training and the online chat, among other cool perks!

If you see that WA and it's training is something you'd like to continue, I would highly recommend upgrading to the Premium membership. It's usually $47 per month, but if you sign up within the first 7 days of joining WA...

1. You can get a 59% discount ($19 for the first month).

2. I'll send you my personal guide to Reaching Your Financial Independence in 2017. This guide is based on my EXACT profit generating techniques I've used with WA. If you are serious about online business, you need to have this. :)

3. You get access to my personal support, 24-7. If you need help, you can be sure that you can fire any questions my way. I have been in the Internet marketing world since 2006 and have likely seen it all! In short, if you have ANY questions, you can come to me anytime and I will help you out (if I can't, I promise to find you the answer). You can count on that.

Certainly this is up to you Kevin. For now just check out the recommended things and see how it works out :)

Talk to you soon!

Thanks again - I WILL take you up on your offer to share your experience with me!!!

Take Care!!!
