About PaulE1
Joined March 2017
Sexagenarian, looking at retirement with weary eyes; looking for income to sustain a protracted vacation!

With over 25 years as an IT professional, my day-job now is Technical Manager. Sounds grand but basically, people come to me to fix things - quickly! I've been a member of the British Computer Society for many years, and I don't make much use of my CiTP (Chartered IT Professional) status as I should.

For over a decade I've been looking at the internet as a source of income. I've always been at a loss of what to do. Too many charlatans and loss of money have repeatedly thwarted my attempts. Before I discovered Wealth Affiliates, I was struggling to make any progress with affiliate marketing. Now I feel I am making headway!

I am longing to be able to walk away from the day job and retire to Thailand.

I'm a great advocate of free quality education for all. I love what Salman Khan has done with https://www.khanacademy.org.

Be Happy!

Hello Paul. I just saw your comment on Pernilla's profile and came to look at yours. I am in the UK too - am following you. When I have a bit of spare time I will take a look at the khanacademy website. I am very interested in education too.

With lots of good wishes,
~ Isabella

Thanks, Isabella. I do highly recommend KhanAcademy. Salman is an excellent teacher and makes maths so easy! It's not just maths on the website but has expanded to include many other subjects. As a free resource, it is first class!

Another excellent resource for maths is Mr (Eddie) Woo on his WooTube channel found on YouTube. Many of his videos have gone viral around the world.

Be Happy!

There is a famous quote from Mark Twain:

"If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first."

And that just means - do your hardest task first or at least as soon as you can in the morning. If you do this then the rest of your day is easy from there!

ANYWAY…

Hello, thanks for the follow and welcome to WA. You are definitely in the right place!

Hi Peter,

Thanks for making contact and words of advice. I'll make a point of reading your posts over the coming weeks.

I try to do the something every day, however small. Each bite is another piece less of the mammoth.

Cheers,
Paul

Hello Paul,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hello Paul and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will surely have realized by now that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck then can I suggest you browse some of the 300+ blogs I have published within WA.

Enjoy your day.

Hi again Paul it’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your day.
Robert

Hey! Was the decision to upgrade to premium a tough call for you?

If you have any doubts about that being wrong, forget about it! Once you make this your daily habit, it will become addicting.

Get involved, introduce yourself in chat and follow some people and make it happen today...everyday!

I'll be looking forward to reading about your progress and success stories soon.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)
