Wealthy Affiliate is the best online program to build a solid foundation for your own online business.
___________________________________________________________________

Hi everyone, my name is John and I am retired. All my life I was caught up in the "Old School" teachings about the importance of holding down a JOB, entering a workforce of millions dragging themselves to a daily chore they really don't like and is unsatisfactory.

But being a good boy, I "went with the program", became quite successful as computer programmer in the mid '70s. In the '80s I expanded my field into Engineering and Manufacturing, earned a decent living and had a relatively good life. That was long before anyone could imagine the amazing progress in computer technology that enables millions of people to own and work a computer in the comfort of their homes.

So here I was, going to work every day, sitting in traffic for hours (both ways) but did what I was taught to do. But deep inside of me there was this desire to own my own business.

To make a long story short. After getting scammed 3 times I almost gave up on my dream of starting an online business. Luckily I went back to do some searching and found Wealthy Affiliate. And here I am. A happy member without any complaints.

Howya John. I'm completely lost. I've gotten so far with this website and now not sure what to do re monetizing and turning it into something useful. What can you suggest? I've spent weeks on this. Not sure about adding paypal or other ecommerce platform for domestic sales, or adding affiliate links when I haven't any traffic coming in. What can I do or what would you do next with website?? The url is 1stadventuretours.ie. Could you please have a look and suggest what next?

Thank you for reintroducing me to WA. I had tentively looked at it a couple of years ago but gave up in frustration as, looking back in hindsight, I didn't correctly understand or apply the training properly or consistently. I am older and wiser now and teachable. Thank you for this second opportunity.

Congratulations John on bringing LabMan's 50,000th follower into his circle.

You have done a great job there and although I've welcomed Mariel at LabMan's request I do hope she is overwhelmed by her fame!

I feel sure you will help her out and assure her that we are all good people with kind hearts :)

Enjoy your day :)
