About MaryJoB
Joined March 2015
I'm one of those people who just can't seem to retire. In earlier days I would have been called a job hopper, but now it seems career change is considered a normal means of survival. I have degrees in chemistry and social work, but have also been a teacher, building inspector, tax assessor, bookkeeper and had my own yarn dyeing business.

I've been interested in computers since 1978 when I bought my first one that had to be soldered together from a kit, and have been on the internet since 1995. A good friend is a long-time web guru, and she got me interested in setting up websites, but criteria for success keep changing, so I hope Wealthy Affiliates will bring me up to date. My main hobbies are reading and knitting (sometimes engaged in simultaneously through audiobooks), but I also enjoy gardening, traveling, and my dog.

I have a wonderful daughter, and her husband is a great son-in-law. They have a business-to-business communications company that's grown from the two of them in the back bedroom to over 100 employees in a remodeled building they own, so I'm very proud of them. I'm looking forward to this program so we can all celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit together!

Awesome goals Maryjo!!

Now that you have goals to work towards you are going to be able to really focus on the training. Take action on what you learn and the lessons will take you towards achieving your goals.

I look forward to working with you and having you as an active part of the Wealthy Affiliate Community.

Hi, it’s a pleasure to meet me, lol.

No seriously, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for following me. I’m pretty impressed with WA training and I think we will find a gold mine of information. Hmmm, seems like geniuses like us tend to gather in the same place (lol).

It's good to connect with someone who has been around computers since the 70s. I began to sell personal computers in the late 70s with brands like the Apple II. No matter what, that is still my all time favorite.

Anyway, here’s wishing you all my best for your success with online marketing.

Let me know if I can help you … GrampaMike

Hi there, Grampamike! My second computer was an Apple II+,butafter that I got seduced into the Microsoft harem.

Darn that Bill Gates, taking away my sales like that. I wondered at the time why my sales of Apple II were falling. (Just kidding)

However, Bill used to come into our store from time to time. He wasn't famous or so rich back then. Looking back it's hard to imagine I was talking to a future rich dude and didn't know it. He was just an ordinary customer at the time.

Thanks, Jovo. I've met hundreds of wonderful charity knitters online and in person, and we all kind of follow the motto--"Do what makes your heart sing, and someone will like it".

Hi MaryJoB,
You did not add charity activites to your interest! Helping others is such a beautifull act.
I added you to my network. Thanks for following me.
