I have two grown children and Three Granddaughters. I have recently relocated to TN but grew up in Western NY.

I'm down to 2 Labrador Retrievers (Left to Right, Gracie and Elphaba)and am a dog trainer in my spare time. I was a member of a local Search and Rescue team and was training one of my Labs for this endeavor (Far Left). She is progressing well. The of the other is certified Therapy Dog, I have taught puppy obedience classes at night.

I spent 2010 on the unemployment rolls and found this place while out of work. I was able to dig out of my hole and found WA to provide some additional income.

I have now been at WA for 7 years. I have learned many things about how to build sites and have developed many sites for clients. Affiliate income is slow for me but only because I have been helping businesses directly. I may focus a bit more on affiliate marketing in the near future.

Over the years I have raised Monarch butterflies and released them back to the wild.Since I have come to WA I have raised several crops of butterflies. The Butterflies were tagged and released in August and September 2010 and 2011 and another crop in 2012. I collected them from the area raised them to Chrysalis stage and when they hatched I tagged them and sent them on their way. I tagged and released 20 Butterflies in 2010 and 19 in 2011 since I ran out of tags, this year I only released untagged Butterflies but 19 more were release to the wild.

Again in 2014 I had a bumper year for the Monarchs. Over 60 made it to the wilds as adults. 2015 was also a good year. Sadly, there were no butterflies in 2016. 2017 will be a different year for me as I'm no longer in Western NY. In TN the monarchs arrive early and are still in their northward journey so I won't be able to raise the Methusela generation that migrates back to Mexico in the fall. I'll still be planting Milkweed and developing a Monarch garden but the Monarch project has probably come to an end for me.

Labman's Goals 3
Money Goals
In my travels last night, I found that there were some new tasks added to the certification classes. So here I am to add my 2 cents.

I'm pretty much like everyone else with my money goals.
My first target is to make a replacement income from my former profession.

That looks like 7K/ month.
Ultimately, 20 k a month would allow my wife to stop delivering babies.

How much do I work, well occasionally I take time out for other things but right now, I work about 15-16 hours a day and 6-7 days a week. I'm dedicated to making this work.

I'm on my 3rd year of this and still at it.

I am doing IM full time now. I tried to balance another job but that didn't work out too well for me.

Hi Craig,

Your labrababies are so lovely.
It has been really confidence building to see so many members that have been with WA for a substantial amount of time.
I look forward to the adventures that lie ahead.
Cheers

Labman,

Thanks for the add. Reading your bio and seeing your love for your dogs I sense an overwhelming amount of compassion from you for animals. I feel you can tell a lot about somebody by the way they treat them to. It sounds like it's something your pretty passionate about. Thanks again for the add and let's rock this Wealthy Affiliate community to the fullest.

Thanks for the follow. I hope to aspire others like you in the WA community. As newbie in WA what words of wisdom can you tell me about WA community.

Is WA really rewarding and have you been able to travel and have financial freedom?

Do you have any other source of income or WA is sufficient enough to make a decent living?

What is the secret to your success in WA?
