About MichaelMBA
Joined April 2019
My favorite time is adventuring in the kitchen all day Sunday cooking up Pirate Food, Healthy Comfort Food. Slow Food. Just cooking good stuff at home. I buy clean ingredients and take the time to prepare my own food in a delicious, heathy way. To thine own palate be true.
I want to share my experiences with Healthy Comfort Food. Showing people different ways to cook to help their lives be more exciting.
Meals should contain food, conversation, laughter, philosophies, current events.
I researched some history and found that the way I cook is how the Pirates of the Golden Age, 1650-1725, ate.
This is Cooking for Pirates, where every meal is a party for a Pirate.

I enjoy cold beer on a sun soaked beach, under a thatch roof and palm trees, the sea in the breeze... when I can get it.
Also, play pool, enjoy my children, and associate with Pirates.

Am an avid Adventurer and Entrepreneur since my early years.
Traveled more than 40 of the US States, plus visited Canada, Mexico, Honduras, Ghana, and India.
I've been in Business Development, Marketing Research and Strategy, Entrepreneurship. I've been a College Instructor, Business Consultant and Real Estate Broker and Investor.

Professionally, I'm a Business Broker working with resales of existing businesses.
As a Franchise Consultant I'm affiliated with approximately 300 Franchises for entrepreneurs who want to start-up their own biz. I can help people all over the world select and start up US-based Franchises for their local markets.

Thank you for stopping by and saying hello.

Hi Michael, how are you going? I am reaching out to my network of followers here. I want us to support each other. I have an inspiring family travel blog that I want to share with the world. check it out here. https://gadsventure.com

Would you please do me a favour and give me a follow on https://facebook.com/gadsventure and https://instagram.com/gadsventure and https://pinterest.com.au/gadsventuretime https://twitter.com/gadsventure https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvoxFmP6fBBy7ewqCZgUkaQ if you wouldn't mind? It will only take a second and I hope you may even be inspired by some of our content!

My family of 6 have burned our bridges and invested everything we have to travel the world and blog about it for other families. We have sold everything and left Australia in order to make it happen. And we currently sit in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand!

If you reply with your own links I would love to follow you back! I have been a member of WA for a few years now, and have learnt a lot. If I can help in anyway, just ask.

Thanks for the follow Mike, and I just followed you right back. I intend to create a meaningful business relationship with you over time. Franchises are cool, and I love cooking too. Setting a kitchen oriented website and I pray this one works out well. I have had to create three websites with shopify in the past and was so negligent about them. I trust the training here at WA will give me the tools necessary to pull through.
Cheers.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for following me and joining my network. I've returned the compliment and followed you back.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. WA is a great community. There is so much to learn. I am here most days. I learn something new every day.

I've been a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate for two years, and I don't regret one day! I'm now a member of the 2020 Super Affiliate Challenge. I'll see it through to the end, and I'll be at the Las Vegas Super Affiliate Conference next year.

Keep moving ahead. However your day may be, take a little step forward. Some days you'll make significant strikes, other days you will not, but do something every day, however small in building your business.

You will read many stories of WA members are succeeding with their online goals. Some have achieved this in a few months; for others, it has taken a couple of years. The common trait for those that have reached their goals is taking action. Everyone who has succeeded has taken small steps every day. Do something, however tiny, every day, and you will reach your goal.

Pace yourself and enjoy your journey. Remember, little steps are better than no steps!

Best wishes,
Paul.
Be Happy!

I see from your profile you have visited many countries but not Scotland.
Shame on you for missing my beautiful country out.

July, August and September are the best times to come and especially in my home city where there is so much going on with the Tattoo, International Book Festival, The 'Festival' itself and the Fringe Festival as well.
You will never be bored that's for sure.
Have a good one Michael.

My sons have visited. They ate organs.
Each has a formal dress kilt, too.
I've never anywhere in Europe.
Would like to visit France and Germany, my heritage countries, but they're both kinda messed up right now.
Scotland is now on me bucket list, Mate.
Enjoy.

Hello Michael And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing could be a steep learning curve and there will always be something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 490+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Have a great day.
Robert

I agree with you again.
When I sit down to write, I kick the cat, clean the kitchen, take out the trash, go to the store......
Alas.
Given that, I just posted my first article.
Yay!
Thanks.

It can be done and all it takes is Focus and Commitment.
Two things I see all to often lacking in some members who want the quick fix.
Its not going to happen so they leave and move on to one of those Shiny Objects and lose money instead of making it.

Welcome to Premium and WA:

You have made a wise decision to become involved with WA.

You will find a wonderful opportunity to learn about affiliate marketing, learn how to develop a beautiful, functional website, and learn the skills needed to do all of the above.

You will also find a community of like-minded individuals with the same basic interests as you, and who are interested in seeing you succeed. You will find their help at the click of a button.

Look about and get started with the education - that is how to get started down your new road toward success.

It will take some time, devotion, and energy but the ride is well worth it.

Dave.

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! :)
