My name is Gene Mott, Married my College Sweetheart many years ago. We live in Carlsbad, California. Had one Son, who left this world a few years ago. He left us with a Grandson who we are also proud of. I am retired, but started my Online experience about 10 years ago. Just a shame there were no Wealthy Affiliates in those days. My long time friend Joe Henning and I have exchanged information over the years. I have made money Online and lost a lot of it back. My biggest success has come from helping others to not make the same mistakes I made many years ago. There is nothing more personally rewarding than to see my Downline Friends be successful. I have one extremely successful business with a Downline that covers the world. The joy I get from working with these wonderful people has its own reward. More later. It is now later and I just became a Pro member. Joe, the only thing I can say is, I just wish I had known about Wealthy Affiliate sooner... I just trust that all the wonderful people that I am following will now follow me.
