Follow me on on my links to the bottom right of the screen;;;;;

As of 2018, I am single and 60 years of age, with half of that time living and working in the beautiful San Joaquin Valley of California. The ag belt of the world, at least it used to be. I now live in my old home town, a small rural community in southeast Missouri. I confess to trying many internet/MLM business's, all to no avail. That's pre-Wealthy Affiliates!!!!!

You'd think a former paralegal would be smarter than the average bear, and avoid the usual suspects in internet marketing scams. However, ones' desire to make a better living sometimes overrides ones' common sense and reason.

The one MLM that I am a fan of, and do promote, is Juice Plus. Their products are excellent, and their support is second to none. That said, in the first week of my training with WA, I learned how to capitalize upon all of the social media tools Juice Plus makes available to their distributors, (for free) from day one. Unfortunately, the person that I signed up under did not understand the uses and advantages of their veritable arsenal of social marketing tools. Therefore, I had no clue as to what any of those items meant to me.

With the training I am getting through WA, and the interaction of the community, I am now able to train my upline on the proper use of these gems, not mention what I will be able to do for my own downline!

This is going to be one blast of ride with WA and crew in tow!!!

Just a little more about my interests and past:

I started out in construction, then survived 2 years of experimental chemo, then switched gears to real estate investing, doing FLIPs and Lease/Options. Then I went after my paralegal certificate and got in to business management. I then joined forces with a like minded individual and we formed our own consulting firm teaching small business owners how to become successful people managers. Put your employees first, and your customers and products will be well cared for. You don't need to worry about 'quality being job one'.

After about 10 years their, I was approached to assist in aquiring a 'mom and pop' manufacturing company, then given the job of CEO. Learning from past mistakes, and building on past successes, that company went from 2 million gross annually, to grossing 14 million in two short years.

After 30 years of burning it at both ends, I burned out. CRASHED BIG TIME!! I was diagnosed with both bipolar and ADD. That was around 2000. 2007 brought a devastating financial train wreck! I was not broke and mental busted.

The good news is, God never gave up on me, so consequently I never fully gave up on myself. I am still learning from past mistake and continue to build on past successes. Sometimes, those successes seem small, but stay with them and they will pay out great dividends. I am a living testament that there is no such thing as complete and total failure. It's just a new starting point!

So here I am at Wealthy Affiliates and loving every minute that I can put in to the training and interacting with the community. God is good!!

Just a final note: I am a great fan and student of both physiology and psychology, with a minor in history. Basically, any genre of history fascinates me. I firmly believe that if one looses site of ones' history, one looses site of a better future. Learn from the mistakes of the past and don't repeat them, then build on the successes of the past, to insure a better future.

God bless one and all.

Thanks John,
Came across a review you had done on Digital Altitude. Well done I might add.
Thanks for recommending WA. At least it's not going to cost any money to at least check this out.
At the age of 60, and being on disability, money is in short supply. One of my main goals is be able to earn enough money to get off of this disability merry-go-round. You're locked into a system that seriously limits your ability to earn a living.
Look forward to speaking with you as I go through the process.
Mark
