About Oldbuddy70
Joined May 2014
I'm just an old retired guy and have no desire to become wealthy, but after 14 years online I ended up back at square one again, so I decided to try WA.

I am looking for some simple ways to bring in about $1,000 a month and drift toward bing passive income, so I can take my wife on more trips and have more fun in our retirement. I have reached this goal several times since the year 2000 when I retired and started online, but as many of you know, the Internet is not always the most stable method of earning.

I have tried Affiliate Marketing before with some success, but no stability. I am hoping these lessons will improve on that track record short term and provide the skills to keep it going long term. One thing for sure, everything I learn here is mine forever, so it certainly is worth putting in some real effort.

Wish me luck!

Hi Warren,
I followed you because i , like you am getting on a bit, my wife calls me 'young a little bit, old bugger', my teeth are mostly missing hair grows in all the wrong places, but I have a passion to come out of the closet and to succeed in an Online business, and I know that WA is the place to be for the necessary guidance and instruction
I know you have found the right place here at Wealthy Affiliate to realize your Dreams.
I live in Northeast Thailand Have a wonderful Thai wife and 8 Year old daughter, I don't need a lot more money but Have a urgent desire to earn enough money to buy a small piece of land and build a house for my Thai family Buy a small car so that I can stop riding My Honda motorcycle , and leave enough for them to live on when I am gone,
So my needs are very small , I have enough pension to support them while I am alive but of course after I am gone this income will cease .
I am 71 years young so I figure that I have about 20 more years to do this, I have been here for just about 6 months , haven't made any money yet but thats probably down to me, I have learned a lot, the resources and training is better than anything on the www.Internet
In fact if I have any criticism its than you can get a bit overwhelmed with information overload so you have to be very disciplined.

If I can help in any way please dont hesitate to call me Good Luck in your journey here.

Hi Warren I m not sure whether this posted correctly , seemed to lose my ADSL connection for a while, so here it is again, just in case!
I looked up the meaning of the word Demographics via Wikipedia:

"Demographics are the quantifiable statistics of a given population. Demographics are also used to identify the study of quantifiable subsets within a given population which characterize that population at a specific point in time." (Why didn't I think of using Wikipedia before!
Might come in useful for other ignoramuses like me!

Where do I find your affiliate goals Oldbuddy?

Good question, I know I set some when I went through the training. Actually mine are pretty simple, do at least one training lesson a day (except Sunday) and work on my websites adding content. I also spend some time using my old promotion methods to get referrals so I can get some income flowing sooner.
