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.

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,

Carl

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
