Hi !
Great to meet you all !
A single father of 2 young adults/ my younger graduated High School this year.
I was raised by 2 teachers from The Greatest Generation, Dad was a WWII Marine. My Heroes were John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Roy Rogers and more than a few other Cowboys ( in black & white and color) !
For sure a throwback to a bygone era. It's certainly possible I'm clinging to my God and my Guns ! I still believe in personal responsibility, but I'm happy to help someone get back on their own 2 feet.

I have a son 21 and a daughter,19. For the last 21 years I’ve shaped my entire life around them, been there for them pretty much 24/7 and allowed nothing to interfere with that mission. Didn’t seem like it at the time, but I’m blessed that they’ve both been through their “teen age rough patch”. Never imagined how rough it could get ! Phew ! The good news being that how rough it got seemed to shorten the learning curve for them. You could make a case for my personal rough patch extending into my very late 30’s, however they came through theirs and emerged as very focused, goal oriented, solid young adults. They make me proud beyond belief !
So one of my goals would be to help get them through College and sounds like probably Post-Grad too, and see them get the solid start they deserve !
My children have never seen a really good economy in their days and I'd be thrilled if they could get their start seeing that happen!

I'm a huge believer in the Zig Ziglar quote; "If you want to get where you want to be then help others reach their goals and yours will take care of themselves."

Maybe 5 years ago as the kids got to where they'd rather be with peers than old people I became aware of all the potential the internet held for generating an online income. I've recieved some great training both at Wealthy Affiliate and from some major figures in the online industry as well. At this point in time I'm blessed to be working with a couple of minor geniuses as friends, business partners and mentors. Cracking the code and on my way to Freedom ! I'm a believer in multiple income streams and well on my way to developing some that are excellent. Over the shiny object syndrome, got the mindset right and work daily to keep it that way ! Moving my income online according to the Plan and looking forward to leaving the day job behind very soon ! Freedom will never happen working for someone else.

. Last winter we had over 16 feet of snow, so I'm also looking for Geographical Freedom. It's nice here in the summer so some version of a "Snowbird" seems appropriate......

I'm an American who still thinks our best days are ahead of us. In 2018 I'm seeing some very positive changes and so looking forward to building on those going forward !
I'm looking forward to getting to know you and would enjoy working with you, I've learned a lot of things that work and look forward to learning more from and with you ! Never will stop learning and loving it !

Please reach out to me on any Social Network and let's get to know each other better !

Let's get together on our Social Networks Too !

MikeLong's Goals 3
Money Goals
I am willing to focus intensely on building this business as my goals are lofty. Starting out I'll probably put 40 hours a week into this, while working 40 at my weekday job. First I would like to create job replacing income so I can do this full time. Then move on to total time, financial and geographic freedom.

Good luck Mike! I currently have a 40 hour a week job so I only work here about 10-12 hours a week. I don't think I could do both full time. Good luck!

Really nice goals, Mike!

By laying things down in such a practical and logical way you now have something to work towards and something to focus on.

The key to succeeding here at WA is to take action on what you learn from the training and ask questions when you need help.

You've taken the first step so I wish you well on the rest of your journey. If I can help with anything along the way the don't hesitate to drop me a line.

Cheers,

Marcus

Thanks for the Follow, Mike! I'm following you now as well. Congrats on your many WA successes! I look forward to interacting with you in this community. Sounds like you've poured your heart and soul into your children and that they've made you proud. They are truly blessed to have a father like you. I wish you great WA success!

Hi Mike! Glad to connect with you. I hope that you are meeting all your goals here at WA and moving forward toward your success.

I enjoyed reading your profile. I can't get over how much your life mirrors my own. I too love the old cowboys shows and with cable I am able to go back and see all the old time ones I used to watch as a kid!

I too made my children to center of my life and my every goal was to make sure they had everything they needed and some of what they wanted! We are very close and 2 of the three are off living their own lives. However, I can't seem to get rid of the youngest (who just turned 29)! But, he is company in the house for me. LOL!

Like you I had to take the bull by the horn and start to live my own dreams that I out off for so many years. This takes a lot of hard work, but I am determined to see it through whether it takes me 6 months or 6 years (hope that is not the case thought!).

Journey well my friend!

Verna

Hi Mike, thank you for your support and follow. I am new to the online business environment and very excited about being part of the WA family. I engaged with Wealthy Affiliate on 5 July 2017 and still trying to find my way through the Affiliate Bootcamp training. It is encouraging to see the accomplishments of WA members and the community support that is always available. WA for me, is the place to be. Wishing you success and lots of blessings with your WA business.
Regards
Anthon

Thanks for the follow. I am following you back! This is a great place to be, and I wish the greatest success for you. My daughter went through a rough spot too and then came out. Graduated Valedictorian of her high school class and graduated college with a 4.0. She teaches at the same college as she is working on her Thesis now for her Masters.
