About NWTDennis
Joined March 2014
Hello WA Community.

My name is Dennis. It wasn't available when I first joined WA so I had to get creative.

I'm retired from a long career in high tech manufacturing. I spent most of my professional life working in small companies, including several start-ups. What I enjoyed most was the sincere comradery that existed within these companies ... that feeling of trust or bond created by the shared goal of making the company as successful as possible. As I was doing my due diligence on WA, I sensed that a similar feeling exists within the WA community, and that proved to be a strong attraction for me.

I live in the wine country in northern California, USA with my wife of 53+ years and our black lab. We have the good fortune of having our grown children living close by ... family time is very important to us.

I set out a couple of years ago to find a home business that would keep me mentally engaged in retirement and hopefully provide an income stream that would allow my wife and I to play a lot of golf. We love the game, but it can be expensive. So I started searching the internet for an honest and forthright way to start a home business.

Well that proved way more elusive and costly than I expected it to be. By nature, I'm a very trusting person, which proved to be my achilles heel. I was ready to give up my home business start up quest when I came across WA.

My decision to go forward with WA was a slow process, since I was determined not to go down another dead end street. Not finding any negative threads on WA, I finally made the leap and am looking forward to making this a very positive venture.

My experience here at WA has essentually erased those bad memories from previous internet business attempts that proved to be so costly and such a waist of time.

Money Goals
I would be happy with a home business that netted $10,000 of annual income. I would be ecstatic if the annual net income achieved added another zero to the number above. I plan to spend 20 to 30 hours a week on this process, but achieving some success could easily provide the motivation to spend even more time on my business.

2019 Update

Income goals haven't changed, but my situation has. About 2 years ago my wife had a mild stroke. It has effected her mobility so that now she can not walk without the use of a Walker. I now spend much of my day caring for her needs and doing all the household things it takes to keep our home comfortable that we use to share.

This has altered the time I have available to work on my sites, but I'm still in the game. In fact, stealing an hour here and there provides a welcome diversion.

Hi Dennis, I liked your profile story. I’ve lost count on the number of members who got disillusioned by other internet marketing training companies that hooked you with initial low offers, and then closed the door saying the really good stuff costs more. Much more!

That’s what happened to me and I gave up. Until a leader here found me checking out an investment research company and invited me to check out WA for free.

You know the rest ha!

All the best to you.

NWTDennis Premium
Yep ... I was so naive when I started. I didn't even qualify as a newbie.
EdwinBernard Premium
That was funny lol!

We all make WA such an amazing platform !
Travelers that have finally found what they have been looking for quite some time!
The training here is inspired, and great. People learn by seeing and copying. WA understands that acutely, it seems, and have laid out a trail for us that is clear and accessable.
Follow it and thou shall find success!

Hi, Dennis! I like your profile. It builds confidence.
I am also a trusting person by nature, but it has been my Achilles heel only 3% of the time, so I guess I've been lucky.
Once again, I feel reassured that rediscovering WA is not a waste of time and energy.
I'm following you now.
All the best

NWTDennis Premium
Thanks Richard ... I'll be following you back. Just read your Profile. Sounds like this might be the second time around for you. I'm envious of your skill set. You should hit the bricks running here.

All the best to you as well.

I have enjoyed reading your profile, Dennis. WA is the best platform to accomplish your goals, we all know that it takes time, effort and tons of patience before you can see some results.
You have mentioned that you live in Northern California, the wine corner, I live with my husband in Sacramento area, used to live in Southern California though.
I wish you a great success.

Well your weather today certainly includes temperatures above 100 deg. Here in Sonoma County it's going to be in the mid 90s.

We used to be able to count on the Marine layer to keep our summer temperatures ideal. Don't have those near as much as we used to. Now days we rely on the AC. This is when our solar electric system really pays for itself.

Thank you for stopping by Jackie.
Kerjackie Premium
The heat we had today, was too high, 105 deg. hope this heat will end soon.
I wish you a nice weekend.
NWTDennis Premium
Yikes! We got a little bit of a marine layer this morning ... forecast is less than 80 deg. Hope you get some relief today.

Hello, Dennis. Thanks for following me. Followed you back. Welcome to my network. Nice to meet you. I, like you, had some experiences prior to discovering WA. But I, too, found the family feeling here at WA to be sincere and very helpful. Best wishes in your WA journey. Carol

PS: I had a black lab, too. Her name was Raven, and I trained her as a certified therapy dog. We went to libraries and schools, and kids who were embarrassed to read in front of people would read to her. I lost her to cancer when she was 14 four years ago, but I still miss her and my pet therapy hobby a lot!

We got Gaiton from Canine Companions when my wife was volunteering there. She and a friend were puppy bathers. Gaiton proved to be unsuitable for training.

The Vet said he would be sort of autistic. We have an autistic grandson so as soon as the Vet said that my wife wanted Gaiton. We had him for ten years, but he is in doggy heaven now. I need to update my Profile.
CarolMeador Premium
How did your grandson relate to Gaiton? When I was doing pet therapy with Raven, we had 2 autistic kids that really related to her. One little 3 year old girl who was visiting the library with her speech pathologist and parents saw Raven, let go of her Daddy's hand, and ran over and hugged the dog. We started having her visit with Raven before my reading kids got out of school. Her dad told me he had never seen Abby respond to anything the way she did to Raven.

I visited Abby a couple years later. She greeted me at the door with the picture of Raven that I had given her for Christmas 2 years before that in her hand. It brought tears to my eyes!

Abby is in 2nd grade now, and gets into trouble for talking too much! Her parents told me that she had worked so hard to develop her ability to talk, they weren't about to tell her to stop talking now! She struggles with social expectations because she does not understand the nuances or social cues that most people respond to.

Thanks for sharing your story. Let's keep in touch.

Thanks for following.

Enjoyed reading your profile. Yeah golf is great but does add up. Been fortunate to play some really great courses.

I'm a new beginner still and really enjoying learning at WA and help of a great community of help and encouragement. Almost got sucked into a couple of the scams too.

I wish you continued success.

Hello again Dennis,

I have a background in sales and service but I have been in manufacturing (not high tech like you but high speed) for the past 18 years of my life. For the past five I have endeavored to move up the corporate ladder and find myself back in the same place I was when I started 18 years ago; I am a machine operator with 18 years knowledge and experience which makes me a huge asset on the production floor I suppose. I recently began feeling restless in my job; good paying job and clean but I began feeling restless there and started searching for ideas to start a business. I looked at brick and mortar ventures. Had dreams of a local start up. Then I found WA. The culture here is amazing; it's what I have read about needing to be in place for a company to grow, and thrive, and change. I too like you found it very attractive. And Kyle's patient, thoughtful, and low-pressure way had me convinced WA was for me. I am where you were three or four years ago.

I am not a betting man but if I were I would say you have seen some reasonable results. Thank you for your encouragement in my profile comment thread.

Congratulations on your semi-retirement.
Congratulations on 53+ years of marriage!

Kind regards,


Oh BTW ---- I worked from the age of 13 until I graduated high school for the golf pro at a local country club within walking distance from my childhood home. It was some of the best years of my youth.

There's nothing like a well groomed golf course, early on a sunny morning. If the greens have been swept properly of the morning dew it's almost like you are the first person to ever play the course. It's one of life's personal joys ... if you are a golf nut like me.
haroda Premium
Thank you Dennis for following me. Thank you so much for sharing your experience. I feel very similar as you.

I hope you have been successful and are still playing golf with your wife. Looking forward to learn more from you and many others at WA.

Much successes for the year 2017!

Hello Dennis,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you again ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Honored to follow and humbled to be followed herein @ WA .
Being fairly new my only advice is to 'use the tools' because I've found this place far&away; the best place to crawl, walk, and run.
My goal is to make people better in health via a Functional Wellness approach and look forward to 'reaching out' to many more here.
I wish you and yours much success in all of your business venture(s) and new life moments.
Be Well, Be Safe, & Be YOU! I remain ...

... Earnestly, DJ
SondraM Premium
Thanks for the comment on my profile page asking about free time. I found that very amusing. In all honesty, when you are doing things you love, it doesn't really seem like work.

I hope that you and your wife can get in a lot of golf this year. Make me wonder if that is your niche?

Best wishes.
NWTDennis Premium
Yep ... I was a newbie in the Cert Training. I will do a lot more niche analysis next time around. The operative word was select what you are "passionate" about.

I love to play golf, but that doesn't mean I have an endless source of interesting content on the subject. So that niche site remains a project in progress while I get into Bootcamp training.

KelseyLim Premium
Hi Dennis, Thank you so much for following back. From your profile, I gather we have a lot in common as I was also an engineer by training and shared deep concern about global warming and sustainability. I reckon this is the best place where we can learn and increase your exposure on IM. The training and tutoriaIs are top notch and I believe the WA community is the place you want to be with on your journey to build a passive income. Stay healthy and more golf to come. Cheers.
