About Oneponytail
Joined February 2014
Hi everyone. I grew up in Pennsylvania around the Allentown area and now live in Leland NC just outside of Wilmington. I have worked in the construction industry for the past 46 years. I was in the union doing commercial work most of the time but have done many residential projects also. I officially retired from the union 6 years ago but continue to work part time (20 to 60) hours a week for a restoration company.

I have my own Decorative Concrete business that was quite successful in Pa. but has not done well here. Of course I haven’t really pushed it because the knees are not what they used to be.

I am going to give online marketing a try. I can’t sit totally still so will continue to physically work, but it is also time to let the body relax a little. Can’t do what I did 10 years ago.

Hello Darrel & welcome to WA. I understand about how people need to continue moving after retiring. I see in my dad who was a policeman & would lay cement still does the cement work. Then I change apartments and make him work even more. And I've got to be on the 3rd floor. :) Great success to you friend!

Hello Darrel and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!! My name is Scott and I am here to help you get started making money online. Before you even think about making money though I want to let you know about a few things that is critical to your success here at WA.

1. You are building a business and this will take quite some time. You are not going to see success overnight or in a week. It will happen but you need to work really hard at this and devote some time to it each day.

2. You need to have a schedule that you can stick with and be able to work on this for at least 30 minutes everyday.

3. Set yourself some goals that you would like to work towards. These should be financial goals along with non-financial goals. You can list your financial goals by adding them to the following discussion here. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started/what-are-your-money-goals By doing this it tells me that you really are serious about making money online and not just curious.

4. If you want to have a successful website that is going to get ranked for lots of awesome low competition keywords. You are going to need a keyword research tool that is reliable, accurate, and is always up to date. With Jaaxy you will get all of this, and so much more. You can sign up for your Free trial account at www.jaaxy.com and get your first 30 searches for Free.

5. Try to not get discouraged or overwhelmed because there is lots of information for you to learn here. There is plenty of help here within the community so if you ever get stuck or need any help pop over to live chat and ask questions.

HOW TO SETUP YOUR ACCOUNT
