Hi my name is Tim 

I came from an upper mid-western working class family.  The family originally settled in the areas of Wisconsin and also the UP or Upper Peninsula area of Michigan.

My G-grandparents from my father's side came from the area of Cornwall, England, and also Helsingborg Sweden. Two different cultures with diverse industries.  Both of these families were well educated and socially motivated.
Both of my G-grandfather's were superintendents ~ one was in the Iron and Copper mines and the other was in the White Pine Lumber Industry.

My G-grandparents from my mother's side came from the area of Klenovec and Kokava in Czechoslovakia, they were farmers. They had to learn English when they came from the 'Old Country' as they called it when I was little. I remember them both, but especially my grandmother speaking Italian, Finnish, Czech, Polish, and German. It seemed when I went shopping with my grandmother, that when she started talking or speaking to another adult that they would switch to another language if I started to understand what they were saying.

Things changed somehow, and the families seemed to lose their monetary and educational value through the years.  The education and the ability to communicate well socially seemed to decline.

Myself, I have always been more socially active and have always dreamed of having a better life for myself and those around me.  I have always been the type of person who has pitched in to help others in need. No matter what the circumstances were.

I still read and try to keep myself abreast of trends and technology. I had some institutional college as well as some business college education. I also completed programs in creating and developing a small upholstery business which we owned and operated for over 20-years.

I still am working in the manufacturing industry as an extrusion operator making a vinyl sheet for the last 20-plus years.

From paying attention to the economic policies in the United States I realize I can not count on Social Security anymore or what those in our government have plans for. It is time to find something which I can do when I retire, which is coming up fast.

I started looking into affiliate marketing in 2017. I have read many different books and looked at many different types of programs, until I came across one which seemed very realistic without the phony scam theme which they wanted you to attend a seminar to listen to some BS of theirs, which is mostly common sense knowledge not taught anymore in any educational system in the world.

I knew nothing about building or designing a website, or how to interact socially and monetarily using social media platforms. This all came about from the platform which Kyle & Carson developed here in WA. My hats off to both of these people!

The accomplishments which include this website and also the ability to communicate to you the processes in what I have done have come about from learning and the developing of my writing skills here in WA. My goal is to help you get out of the rut that you are in so you may have a successful life also!

I sincerely believe that if you have read this article so far, you also can succeed without draining your pocket book from someone else's BS.

If you think things are magically going to happen to you overnight, you are dreaming. The program I joined here in WA takes time. Working 40+ hours a week does make things difficult, but it is still doable. You are going to have to think and study. No one is going to give you some magical formula. There are many nice people who will help you here in WA, but they are not going to do your work for you. What you put in is what you will get out!

I thought I had come across this community by chance, or is this just another act of God reaching out to me?

Sincerely,

Tim Johnson / alias kickbacked

The thing about online success that I have come to learn is that there is room for ALL of us within the online world. There is no marketplace that is bigger and there is nowhere that represents this kind of opportunity, regardless of your niche, passions and interests (and it only continues to grow!!)

Take action on the training here at WA, immerse yourself within the awesome and helpful community here at WA... and ask for help when you need it. You will be well on your way to achieve your goals Tim!

Hi Tim! Another life-long learner! Nice to meet you! This site seems to attract them. I used to have an OK conversational French when I was... ahem... much younger. But these days it only lurks on the fringes of my memory as passive vocabulary, suddenly making appearances when I need to sing along with songs (why do I still know the French national anthem by heart all these years later?), and if I need to haggle. Just when I think I've forgotten everything, it surprises me. Language and memory are funny.

Yes, Iknow what you mean. I still remember how to sing O Christmas Tree and Are You Sleeping Brother John in German which I learned when I was in kindergarten! LOL

Hello Tim,

I have a little French in me too. Good luck with learning the language. I too am in my sixties young and am trying to do things I have put off too. One is being my own boss and making an income to supplement Social Security. That is why I am here at WA. Its been great so far. Thank you for following and connecting.

Hi Dianne

I believe a lot of the 50+ here are looking to supplement their income for retiring!

Never to young to learn!
