About PeterGibbs
Joined January 2018
I am an entrepreneur presently working as a Manager at Walmart. I live in Waco, TX and I have a ministry, trumPeter Ministries, that I would like to do full time and do Affiliate Marketing ("AM") to support myself and my family. I have been attempting to do AM since 2005, unsuccessfully, but I am still positive that I can do this. God willing. So here we go.

I was the youngest A&R executive ever in the Music industry. That was back in the early 80's. I was at RCA Records and worked with some monster acts including Hall & Oates for whom we mixed the hit "I Can't Go for That, No Can Do" with my boss at the time Robert Wright. That was a past life though. I now am the lead trumpeter for trumPeter Ministries which is a ministry that functions within the Seventh-day Adventist church. This is what I would like to do full time but working at Walmart as a Manager does not give me the flexibility that I would like. I started working there in December of 2015 as my online and web development business was not progressing as I would have liked. I do play trumpet and my current trumpet teacher is Wayne Bergeron, the premier lead trumpeter in the world. I'm very excited about that. He's in CA, I'm in TX so we attempt to get together, over Skype, when he has the time.

Currently, as of 12. 10. 17 I am home from work on disability as I fell at work and hurt my right wrist and left hip. Then my left eye ruptured a blood vessel spilling blood into my eye. But God is good. Prior to that, I asked the Lord for some time off work and He decided to answer my prayer this way. Not bitter at all. I can still see out of my right eye.

I'll be 60 on March 30 and I am in the gym 3 days a week. Although not now since I am on disability. Most people think that I am in my late 40s early 50s. God is good. I have a web development business called The Gibbs Group of Companies [http://theggoc.com] and a marketing site called Peter M Gibbs dot com {http://petermgibbs.com]. Neither one has made me any significant money. The second one, Peter M Gibbs dot com, I had to shut down as it was a network marketing site for Melalueca and the contents were not mine. But I am going to attempt to remake that site using what I learn here. Right now it is in "Maintenance Mode."

My ministry is online and we have not yet built our website. It's a video-centric ministry. Lots of bible studies on video. But I am excited to see where the Lord takes this business as I really want to spend most of my time in ministry. I've failed at AM for many years but I think the time is right at this moment. I tried to build a successful AM business from 2005 until 2012 when I went to work for Walmart. We'll see what He does. I'll do my part and, of course, the Lord will do His.

Hi Peter, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend. Sorry about the huge delay in responding but I am a bit slow at the moment. Trying to do too many things at once.

I see you have a website up and running. You might want to think about putting the links here on your profile page.

You do this by going to the right of your profile page, down to the bottom where it says 'Follow me on' and click on it. Put your website URL and any social media URLs you have (and want to add). This way people like me can hop in, visit and leave a comment. This makes it easier for us to follow you as this will be a direct link. And extra traffic is always welcome.

I just checked out your YouTube channel. Great stuff and very interesting. I haven't done a video yet. I hate myself on camera.

You should also do some more blogs here on your profile page. These go into Google too so add to your online profile. Also if you are promoting WA these WA blogs help build trust with your referrals. They can see you are really involved here.

If you have time I would love it if you visited one of my websites and left a comment on a post, any one will do. The site addresses are workingonthewildside.com & fantasy-sci-fi-vision.com.

As soon as you have a website link here let me know so I can return the comment.

Keep working hard, having fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Ciao
Helen

Hello Peter ... thank you for the follow. Your background and experience should serve you well. WA will allow you to put it all together, but it's going to take a lot of patience and perseverance.

You've been online for quite a while, but I recommend you do the training. Don't skip any of it even if you think you already have the knowledge and skills.

I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Hi, Peter and thanks for following me, I'm following you also.

I believe you are my first Walmartite. I guess it was inevitable that one day I would be following a fellow employee. Yup, that's right, I also work for Walmart as a part-time employee at a store on the west coast of Canada, in the dairy department.

Anyway, pleased to make your acquaintance and pray you will have the success you are looking for. You have definitely made it more possible by connecting with WA. The training and the community will help you get there.

All the best and |I look forward to connecting from time to time.

Moving Forward,
Wayne

Hello Peter and Again Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you've been here and had a look round the site you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 390+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Wishing you great success in your Wealthy Affiliate endeavors, Peter.

Sorry to hear about your health issues, though. I had similar issues with my vision which led to me having to go on disability. I also had some bleeding which blinded me completely for about 2 1/2 months (visual acuity was at 20/400). However, my problem stemmed from high blood pressure, which is now under control with medication.

Since then, vision in both eyes is vastly improved following two surgeries, but I have to receive monthly injections in both eyes to maintain my sight (not as bad as it sounds).

Onward and upward!

Joshua

I had the injections also. It's really not as bad as it sounds. Praying for you and your business.

Hi Peter, nice to meet you, sorry about the eye. I've lived through a retina detachment and surgery, cataracts and lens replacement so I can relate. Luckily when the retina detached I got to the doc and surgery the same day. I hope your ministry develops and does well. I"m a Christian too and I figure if God keeps us here on earth, He has something else for us to do. Best wishes for your efforts here and God Bless You. - Shirley

Thank you Peter for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. When first starting your affiliate marketing website many members have problems coming up with niche ideas.

Probably the one main problem is that people tend to over-think the simple process of finding a niche. Just sit back and look around you. You have niches everywhere. You are even wearing different niches.

Though it is important to fully understand that any niche can be profitable, there are certain niche markets that will be more profitable than others. You might think that the market is saturated but there is plenty of room to earn.

The niches in these 2 types of profitable categories (Evergreen and Passions) are plentiful and broad. Like all niches they will need to be narrow and focused. The more they are, the more profitable they become.

I created a tutorial that explains the differences in these two groups and provide you with many niche and sub niche ideas for each category. If you are having problems choosing a niche, click the link below.

hey glad you're here at wealthy affiliate, I believe it is the first step to success. The only advice id have is to stick to the training, ask for help when you need it, and last but most important you gotta take Action... no shortcuts. Feel free to reach out for help, I'll always do what i can to help!

Hi Peter,

Welcome to WA and congratulations on upgrading. You may not have found success with affiliate marketing yet, but if you've been at it since 2005 and not given up, you'll have a lot of experience. Now, if you go through the Certification Courses and apply all the steps, things will very likely fall into place.

I hope you make a quick recovery from your three injuries - wrist, hip and eye - ouch!

All the best,

David Hurley

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! :)

Pleasure to make your acquaintance Peter. I love the horn, but would not be able to call myself a trumpeter. I love your mission and the fact that it includes music. When I was a kid and trying to learn the trumpet my dad had a nick name for me, Satchmo (most people may not get that reference!)

Anyway, I just wanted to welcome you here to WA! I am new here also and getting going with the beginning lessons and building up my first ever website. Sounds like you already have a head start on some of that.

To our online business achievements in this new year!

Thanks for touching base, Bob. I may have a headstart but I have been building websites and doing several other things with media since 2001 but do not seem to be able to make any money. I really want to work from home so I am going to give this more than 100%.

I do play the trumpet, practice every day, but I am also very excited to build an AM business. Going Premium in a few days, if not sooner. This is by far the best platform that I have found with everything in one place. Let's see how this goes.
