Me, WA and my business activities

I've done some internet marketing before but without much success.
Learning by trial and error is no fun!

I really didn't like marketing without real products.
I like the way WA gives thorough training on internet marketing that can be applied to any product (e. G. my artwork) or other peoples products (through affiliate links) or sharing WA itself.

I'm looking to build enough income to buy a small campervan, do some household improvements, support my growing extended family and improve our standard of living as my wife and I near retirement.

I don't expect overnight success but feel WA will shorten the learning curve, with effort and dedication I believe I will be seeing some profits by 6 months with a growing foundation for greater progress thereafter. Campervan by Sept. 2016?

A bit about me personally
I am 58 (in 2014) and live in Bolton, England about 13 miles north of Manchester.
I'm married and have 6 children the youngest is 20.
I used to teach children with profound and multiple learning difficulties in Bolton. Now I'm caretaker of The Bridge Church, Bolton.
Hobbies include painting and drawing, walking and camping.
I'd like to illustrate my own children's picture book.

Hi Mike, Nice intro to yourself.
I always like it when folks in WA "tell a little story" on themselves and what their lives are like. Welcome to WA.

Mike ... that is a great bio .... I've written a couple children' s books and I, have done some illustrations ... but so far I'm not too happy with them. I've sort of given up on that as my work here at WA has sort of taken over everything! lol M

Hi Kim, I got your message :-)
I think the reply you couldn't see was because I sent a duplicate reply and deleted it after seeing that my first had come up (it didn't at first) Sorry
Hope you're having a good day.

Thanks Kyle, I like the way WA looks and sounds Real and not a total Slick sales push. Looking forward to getting to grips with things.

No problem at all Mike, it is great to have you here at WA and I absolutely look forward to working with you and seeing you progress in the coming days, weeks, and months ahead.

I am connected to WA throughout the day, so if ever have any questions let me know. I am always around! :)

PS. No slick sales here, we are the real deal. Here to help folks and every decision we have made over the last 9 years here at Wealthy Affiliate was "how can we improve our service for the community" NOT "how can we make more money off of people". That is the problem these days with this industry, full of a bunch of shiesters.
