About PaulUmstead
Joined October 2018
Hi - My name is Paul Umstead and I have recently achieved retirement age after many years as a Human Resources Director and most recently messing around as an hourly employee at Walmart. I currently work a couple days a week primarily to stay active and earn some pocket money to supplement my retirement income.

Up until recently my wife and I ran an eBay store with a combination of our own inventory and a few reputable dropshippers. We did this for about 17 years on a part time basis basically covering costs and enjoying the diversions of meeting people online. We had a falling out with eBay because they kept imposing changes that required more unnecessary time with no added value, than we were willing to spend. In any event we are familiar and have worked with Affiliate Programs with little to no success and hope that Wealthy Affiliates will yield some positive monetary results. We welcome any advice and suggestions.

Welcome to premium!

So happy that you have decided to take this step in your journey towards achieving your dreams. You will gain so much from being here.

The training here is great and you should follow it to the letter.

The community here is the very best I have personally encountered. (and I have tried a few)
It is NOT a race, if you treat it as one, then you will only cheat yourself. I hope to bump into you along your path.

Once again, welcome aboard!! Blessings ~ Frank & Tina (free4life)

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us.

Wealthy Affiliate is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business. I tried to do this alone before and was completely lost.

Now I know why.

There are so many tricks of the trade and it saves so much time having it all laid out clearly in its training programs.

Keep following the training and exercises every day. Give it a year to see significant results. You'll be a happy camper by then. We all make progress at different rates and it is possible to see meaningful results in 4-6 months. Google cannot be rushed.

Google rewards people with websites that provide value to their visitors. It helps to boost their ad revenue of course! And that helps your websites get high rankings. But it takes time to build credibility. Once they realize your site is an authority site, good things will happen faster.

When you get stuck, and you will, just ask for help in the discussion area located below each lesson. Scroll down to find it. Another member who has the answer will get back to you promptly.

In the meantime have fun with the program. Much success to you.

Cheers!

Thanks Edwin, I am excited to join because I also tried to do it on my own for the last 18 years with limited success because I didn't have a support group or training.

Have a great day!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Paul!

You'll have your online business up and running in no time if you just start working through the training.

Which can be accessed by clicking on the green "Get Started Here" button to the left.

Or by clicking the link right here: If you're ready to put in the time and effort I'll be here to personally help through the courses or with any questions that you might have during your journey towards running your own business.

You can just leave me a question over at my personal profile.

Be sure to create your personal profile by adding an image and a few words about yourself. Members tend to reach out and offer you more help after you create one.

And just a quick reminder that you have no time limit on your starter membership, but if you become a premium member within your first 7 days, you'll be able to get 59% off your first month.

I took advantage of the offer, and haven't looked back since.

Anyways, have a look around and don't be afraid to say hi.
