About LJayLJ

A funny thing happened on the way to Wealthy Affiliate (WA)...funny because I am a person who does not necessarily care much for chasing the dollar. What I care about is obtaining that dollar honestly with integrity. Though I have been associated with WA for a few days, I am feeling good about the direction this is taking. Why WA? I retired from the US Navy a little less than 20 years ago and have been employed in at least 10 jobs since. I'm an administrator who often ends up in sales positions. My goal is not to make money for the sake of having more money, my goal is to have enough money to pay off the house and cars and put a bit away with a relatively steady income stream to retire my wife in a couple of years and in 5 or less years for myself. I may be olderly but I want us to be able to enjoy life together before we become elderly. And, I would like to pass some things on to my daughter and grandchildren.
I look forward to this new adventure and meeting, sharing and assisting others. The old saying, "what goes around, comes around," will mean so much more to me when I reach the point of helping others succeed as an affiliate.
There is no such thing as failure unless one does not learn and progress forward (or around obstacles) to reach the goal--the goal is irrelevant unless the goal is to harm others then the goal should never be realized.
Quote I like: "One is glad to be of service."

Hi Leon, nice meeting you here and thank you for connecting. We are from other sides of the world (we live in Melbourne, Australia), and coming from different professional backgrounds but our life philosophy and our "wants" are pretty much the same. I have a feeling that we will become good friends. I just wonder which city in USA do you live? Keep in touch please. Thank you.
Cheers
Tom

Nice to meet you, Tom. I am in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
I saw Australia from the deck of an aircraft carrier on my way to the Indian Ocean--missed it by that much. I look forward to seeing more from you, too. Jay :)

It's okay, Tom. Legally, I use Leon on everything but I go by Jay. Carson is so alert, he's the only one who picked up on that from the beginning. :)

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! :)
