About PapaDave
Joined March 2015
I'm semi-retired health care provider, recovering from my own serious health crisis a few years back (2011). My area of practice requires quite a bit of physical strength and dexterity and as I age, and recover myself, I'm finding the work physically taxing...I can comfortably see three patients consecutively before I have to rest for a little bit. Obviously, I can see the "writing on the wall" and I've decided to look for something I can do a few hours per week, in addition to my practice, to build residual income and keep me sharp...something related to activities that bring me as much or more delight than my practice has over the past twenty-seven years.
I've been with Wealthy Affiliate now for about three months (July 5, 2015) and I am truly impressed; while not perfect, it certainly is substantial in its training and community building. It has been a great investment to me both of my time and money.
Well, here I am again updating (July 10, 2015). I have learned of features in Wealthy Affiliates that I had no idea existed...they are amazing, like the SiteRubix Comment Site and the "Say Hello!" feature to welcome members who have upgraded to Premium...where have I been all this time? This stuff just keeps getting better and better.
More later!!
It time for a new update (July 3, 2016), almost a year since I've done much with Wealthy Affiliates. For the past year I've been sitting on my laurels, I have one site I set up based on a WA inspired niche and two professional websites I've moved over for hosting...to save money. Essentially for the past year, I've just played around with domain sources and making sure the plug-ins are all up to date. No real effort to make money. I think it's time to change that. I decided to start the training all over since I pretty much finished it the first time but my WA inspired site never really took off making money; hence, I must have missed something very important since that was my goal. Here I go again, wish me luck!

WOW, I've just read what I've written in the past (June 23, 2018), I came back into the program today, to be truthful, to prepare to move all of my websites (3) over to a cheaper hosting option since I haven't been utilizing the services of WA other than hosting. Being back other than to just update websites, I remembered my initial excitement and have thought, perhaps I missed something in the training that has kept my 1 monetized site from generating any significant income...there has been some income, perhaps $60 per year, but not enough to cover my monthly $47. When I looked at the Training, it showed I only finished 87% (which could have been, based on last update, based on my second run through), but even then, that's crazy because I am extremely thorough...even reading books, I read EVERY page from front to back; I couldn't imagine I had missed something. So, here we go again, 2018 and I am back, as least for a time, to see what I missed and to determine if a few tweaks will make a big enough change to cover the monthly. Here goes!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate David!

Nathaniell here - you probably remember me from my site One More Cup of Coffee. I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started building your online business.

Right now, there are just two things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. The support here at WA is the best in the internet marketing industry...please take advantage of it.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button or just click this link .
