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.

From what I've seen here I think you will make it. realistic goals with a program that in my mind will work given the right amount of attention. I have tried a couple other make money from home programs and have never been this excited about the whole idea.

You absolutely can and you will achieve these goals (and likely beyond). Dedicate yourself to your goals and take action on what you learn here. Action leads to success and I have never seen anyone fail that doesn't quit.

I look forward to working with you and do let me know if you need a hand along the way.

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?

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 :)

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
