About Oldie
Joined August 2013
Hi
My name is Andy Boyd, usually known as Drew to friends and family, but no combination of my names was available as a user name for WA. As a result I opted for "oldie" which ONLY refers to my chronological age and certainly not to my physical or mental age---I still feel and act as I did when I was 30--much to my dismay when I overdo things of a physical nature.

Peg and I are well retired, living reasonably comfortably in a small house in a canal community in Ontario, Canada with our amazing pet, Dr. Wu, a 15 year old Shih Tzu (hope I'm that active when I'm 105)

I came to WA after reading a review by Christene Swanepoel while doing due diligence on the EN program ----never been one to try to make money on the backs of those who really can't afford to belong to what appears to be a cult. (my opinion only)

My goals are simple: 1. Learn enough to develop a web presence
2. Add enough income to our meagre pension to allow us to travel, to donate more to our favourite charities, and to help others in the same position as us.

Hi Andy, thanks for the follow - appears that we have the same reason for joining WA with Cristene and EN. I try to convert my physical marketing method (named 'KDI') into an online one. Not for making money with promoting the KDI-method, but for collaborating with like-wise people to get an improved approach for a succesful recurring online business. Wish you all success and hope that you will comment my KDI-thinking.

Seems to be a lot of Canadians in the program--good stuff. Our likes are very similar--other than hockey. Not much into that for some reason--I suppose that may seem un-Canadian, but I'll just have to live with it.

Well hockey has changed a lot. It's less about skill these days and the terrible hits from behind it's enough to throw anyone off hockey! :)

Hi Carl
Read your bio and liked what I read. I ,too, was in real estate, so I know what it feels like when a market tanks. I was also a teacher for 10 years and haven't lost the need to help others learn new skills
Best regards

Hi Andy, I just noticed you moved those two pages I mentioned, I think that looks much better - hope you do too. I forgot to mention, I noticed you haven't created a favicon either, I wrote a blog post last week showing the process if you don't know how to. It's on my profile page. Good luck with the site. Best regards, Paul

Hi Neil
We seem to have much in common---both Canadian and love to fish. I don't do as much as I would like, but still manage a week at Agnew Lake,just north of Espanola , mainly Pickerel with the odd nice Pike thrown in. Thanks for the follow.

OK, sounds good. I'm not quite as old as you - - I'll be 70 in January.

Welcome to WA! I think we are somewhat similar in looks, actions, writing style and thinking a lot younger than we are chronologically. It's harder for me to overdo things physically due to a circulation problem in my legs but hey, I can still go to the park and shoot hoops! (My favorite form of exercise)

You'll meet/see other "oldies" here on the sight. Looks like we are all in the same boat---retired (or near it) and not enough money. Or at least not enough to do what we want to do!

I wish you much success here at WA! Let me know if I can help.

You certainly nailed it--I'll be 75 in 3 months and I, too, used to teach. ( But that's another life) Looking forward to this adventure. We should keep in touch as we progress. Cheers

Hope all is going well. Just want to drop in and make sure that you had found your way around WA.

Quick Hint:

Do not post questions directly on your profile page because they will be missed if you don't have many followers. Rather use the "live chat" and connect directly with members who will give you an instant answer to problems you might have.

Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions - This community has some awesome individuals that will help out gladly.

Hi Christene
Thank you for the quick hint---that makes a lot of sense.

I'm seriously considering going Premium and then promoting WA as my first project before getting into something else. What do you think?

Christene9 Premium
Wealthy Affiliate is an excellent choice for promoting. The fees are reasonable and most people can afford it. You will also help people with the free option, there are lots of individuals who can't afford to pay high fees, but they really want to start their own online business. If you can help others while promoting WA you will have succcess most definatly.

The affiliate bootcamp classes had personally helped me alot to promote WA in the right manner and also change my mindset into helping people while I am helping myself.

Hi Carson
Thank you for the welcome. I've pored over your site for the past 2 hours and I must say I am impressed. The lack of pressure is very encouraging and I am sure it will only be a matter of days, if not hours, before I upgrade.

I hate being scammed. A few months ago I joined a program (fell for the hype) that was supposed to be the B all and end all of all programs. Since then, I have received a minimum of 3 emails a day, each promoting a different NEXT best thing. I guess the original wasn't so great.

Thanks again to you and Kyle for being so forthright. I'm looking forward to this.

best regards
Andy

Hey Andy, great to hear that you are enjoying your experience at Wealthy Affiliate already. Many people that come to WA have been scammed many times over the years and this happens because NO ONE in the industry has a platform, tools, or training that will actually teach you to build a business. Many of the "Guru's" out there who claim to be rich, actually make very little to nothing online and in no way have the experience to train people.

You'll quickly find that Wealthy Affiliate is leaps and bounds above anything else out there. Kyle and I have invested Millions of dollars in to building Wealthy Affiliate and everyone who follows the training and builds a website will succeed. It's up to you, and I'll be here to help :)

Never hesitate to ask for help here on Wealthy Affiliate all of us will do our best to help.

Hi Christene
Thank you for the welcome.

I am here because of your review of WA which I read while doing due dilligence on EN. I must say I agree with ALL of your comments regarding that program.
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction
