About Pcapling
Joined July 2015
After graduation from college in Michigan and 43+ years in the commercial middle market property casualty insurance industry with Aetna and Travelers, I "semi-retired" last year. With a side home based alternative finance business successful over the last six years, I was still bored a bit after retiring, so I decided to pursue additional home based business opportunities, learning as I went along. Fascinated with the Internet and a writer, I'm interested in writing how to books and e-books, along with promoting books and other products on the Internet.

Hi and welcome to WA, Thanks for following me back.

Labman, have you considered writing a short e-book on basic dog training & uploading it? There is very little expense involved and from your profile it looks like you are really well qualified. Filing for a copyright on it is easy (and inexpensive) and I think you'd have fun with it. I'm a writer in addition to cash flow business consultant so I'd be glad to help you as needed (no charge) I did a quick review on a couple key website search engines on the books or courses offered--the ones I find are okay, but I think a lot of folks are looking for a more basic training for their dogs. And, you could do a follow up e-book for dogs with "disciplinary problems"...maybe come up with a blog and then wholesale (or retail) dog specialty products eventually on your website.

That is quite a good idea and I have been kicking it around in my brain pan a bit.

I have several books in me I think.

Thanks for the kind words, Sarah. 'Read your profile & it looks like you are always really busy!

I have my own home business--alternative finance and cash flow brokerage. I started my home business out of "corporate boredom" after 43 1/2 years in the corporate property casualty insurance world as a Managing Director.

I really don't miss corporate life! My last 6 years in the alternative finance business has been especially fun because, as the CEO, I get to make the decisions.

Now, I just need to get through these lesson plans and develop a focused niche!

(By the way, as an author, let me know if there is anything I can do to help you on your writing journey. Fiction is a tough market to enter; other than short stories for my grandkids, I've been sticking with short how to booklets instead--a huge market out there for non-fiction.)

Best wishes for your continued success & thanks for the encouragement!

Thank you for taking the time to write me Phil, I really appreciate it!

It sounds like you are already experienced and I'm sure it will be a huge advantage for you as you move forward with the lessons on WA! I wish you all the best of joy and success ; let me know if you need my help with anything!

What I lack right now, regarding my novel, is TIME lol. The reason I'm building this home based business is because I have started this novel and I know I have to finish it... It's an amazing story but quite a long one... probably 3 or 4 books.... and I just need more time lol
I will let you know if I need your advice on this when I get back to writing, thank you for offering your help!! =)

Have a lovely day

Hey Phil, great to have you here. I felt the same way when I was starting out, looking for an opportunity to supplement my income.

To be honest with you, there is no better way to do this than within the online world and you have absolutely everything you need here at WA to do this (including the support channels).

Just thought I would pop in and say hi and simply drop me a reply if you need a hand with anything moving forward.

PS. I hope you are having an awesome week thus far!
