About MPollock
Joined April 2016
Hi. My name is Mike. To tell you a little bit about me, I have been working on cars since I was 13 years old. It was my passion. I started my own business at 22 and I am still there. I own M & J Auto. in Northern Utah. I have made a good living, but not Great. I am Going to be 58 and Social Security is not a good retirement. I love Camping, 4 Wheeling, and Sand Dunes, and spending as much time as I can with Family. Now I am trying to find an Extra way to make money so I can retire and live a good Life.

thank you for the follow - I went to your site - are you making money with it yet. And the auto repair business is for young guys - I was in it for along time also and not on the tech side. but the world of information you have would be a great niche...

Hi Mike,
Thanks for following me. I imagine that if you are like our son in loving cars that it is all consuming!.
My husband is keen to a 5th wheeler and travel the US. We do love the USA. We recently went to Zion and Bryce Canyon. AMAZING!
Looking forward to the WAS journey together.
Cheers,
Ingrid

Lol no really if they can help you they will, and if they can't they will stir you in the correct direction to get your answer. One more thing NICE TO MEET YA! Donna

Hi Mike
Thank you for following. I am ready to retire in about a year and you are right, that social security will not be enough.
I have returned to WA and will be more active this time around.
I do not want to work after I retire unless I feel like it, not because I have to. I think and believe I will gain so much from WA, that will allow me to be comfortable.
Much luck to you

Hi Mike, I don't know what is going on. I read your post yesterday, and I think you are taking it too personal. You may not know this, but many of us including me also lost rank overnight. It wasn't just you. I think if was the system or something else unconnected to your post. Again, I don't know what went on other than reading your post, but you may have assumed the wrong thing. Hope to see you back with more posts.

Hello, and thank you!

Being new to the community is both a challenge and a blessing. I think the challenge will be to me (and about me and what will work for me) while the blessing is when you get to know new friends and people who can guide you and advise you about what to do next.

I'll surely be bothering you with questions soon enough, for now, I just want to say cheers!

Hey again Mike, I tried to post a comment on your website, but it won't post. There's a pop-up box that says it's being submitted too quickly and to try again---even after several attempts.
This happened to me on someone else's site and she was able to fix it but I don't know how.
Let me know when you get it corrected and I'll try again.

Mike, since you've been working on cars for 45 years, I'm planning on taking your advise on bringing an old car back to its glory. Might be a while before I actually do that as I have to make some money on WA .and, find a 50 year old car to work on :-) It's been one of my dreams.

Hope that's okay with you.

Oh man Mike, I have fond memories of Green River, Utah. A nice little town. When you leave Green River there are no services for 100 miles. At least that was the way it was in 1978! Talk about big sky country! Beautiful. Ranch exits. No lights. No buildings. I did not want to waste time getting to Grand Junction, Colorado. I was cruising at a buck ten when I saw headlights far behind. They got closer and closer, and I'm hoping it ain't desperados because my unregistered piece was in the trunk and not loaded. Following the law. Well, when I saw the cherry flashing I was relieved. At least it wasn't an outlaw. A quick discussion with the cop and he let me go. Had pizza at a Pizza Hut in Grand Junction with lots of US soldiers. Felt relieved. I was in the automobile sales and leasing business for 11 years. Many times I had a commission saved by a good mechanic. I know how hard you work in all kinds of weather. Sometimes our bodies won't let us continue to work at things physical. Apply yourself to this education. These guys know a lot more than we do about this kind of business. It can be difficult at times, but someone will always be there to help you. Contact me whenever you want. If I don't know the answer someone else will. Best of luck. The times have changed. I commend you for being forward thinking. Peace

Hello Mike. My father was a mechanic. It was rough on him but he loved it. He owned a service/gas station. We (all the kids) hung out there a lot, especially as we got older. Both my sister and I worked there and a few of our friends did as well.

I owned a 1966 Mustang 3 speed on the ground with pony interior.

I owned a 1970 MG Midget

I owned a 1974 Super Beetle

I installed nice stereo systems in all of them and even did thing like change the starter in the Midget. I was very much a tomboy. Haahaaa

Anyway, blah, blah, blah.

I just started WA. I have hardly got my toe in.

I will talk to you again soon I'm sure.

Peace.

Cindy

Hi MPollock, Good you join the WA. To be 58 is not an to be considered as an old man. There are people of 90 still working their best. In LONDON we have a person of 100 doing MARATHON. I am 74 and joined the WA last month. I am a bit slow. But I wish you good luck in this sphere. I will advise you to still continue with the four wheels as well.

Thanks for the follow. This year I received my SSA love letter explaining benefits, pay out structure etc. Unfortunately I can't withdraw until 65, wish I could but the taxes & penalties are killers if you take an early withdrawal.. Sidebar my neighbor started collecting at 65; returned to work. . Her accountant forgot to tell her that she still is required to have SSI deducted from paycheck. Hence she was hit with a huge penalty. Lesson learned....
You are the owner of a successful auto repair, you should be successful at anything! Good luck.

Hello Mike,
Thank you for becoming a member of my network with your follow. Auto repair is a good business, however doing it as long as you have could make it old news.

You have come to the right place to start a new career. If you can put half as much effort into this opportunity as you have placed in you auto repair business you will be living " The Good Life" sooner than later.

Mike you have what it takes to be a big success with this online business opportunity. You also have what it takes to make it happen in a short period of time by staying focused and doing something toward you goal in this business just like you did when you started the auto repair business.

The good thing here is you have a community of people to help and support you the whole way. Just set some goals for yourself and this opportunity, follow the training courses, ask questions, and believe in yourself, you will be done with that auto business before you can change a spark plug. lol Keep in close contact.

Hi Mike,

You have found the right company to make money part-time or full time.

I worked at several different things part-time for years,
but never made any money. Mostly, they take your money and don't give you any training, or maybe a little training.

WA is very different. There is lots of training available.Carson and Kyle spend lots of creating new training for us.

If you put time into this everyday it will work for you.

All the best,
Mike

I neep help. So I'm trying to find keywords using Jaaxy and it's quite difficult. I've been researching quite extensively. My niche is 'Print Dresses' (so dresses with prints on them) and the difficulty is that everything I search relates back to general dresses (cocktail, midi, long, with sleeves etc) if I even put the word 'print' or 'printed' in it, the search results become pretty dismal and I can't refine my searches but it's supposed to relate back to my 'print dresses' niche. The whole aspect of my website is that the dresses are specifically meant to be 'printed'. Any help?
