About Phil1944
Joined December 2018
After 48 years in IT, I retired reasonably well off. But a combination of bad luck and bad decisions left me broke at the age of 74. So I'm determined to derive a substantial on-line income and will devote whatever is necessary to achieve that.

UPDATE:
I just turned 78 in April 2022 and have 24 online businesses. They are producing a substantial income.

For my age, I'm extraordinarily fit and healthy. I weigh the same as I did as an 18yo athlete, I bench press more than my own body weight, can hold a 5 minute plank and do 100km bike rides for fun. I take no drugs, prescription or over the counter, don't go to the doctors and never get sick. Literally.

So fitness and health are an interest area for me. I've published books on Amazon in this genre and others with some success and have started to build supporting websites.

I built an e-commerce site on the Shopify platform. I expected big things from it, but it was a disaster. Despite my product images looking good and my pricing competitive, it haemorrhaged money. I spent big on Google ads and FB marketing and didn't make a sale. Subsequently, I built my own independent e-commerce stores with much more success.

Wealthy Affiliate's affiliate marketing training is the best in the business and is far and away the best place to start. It was my starting point and I recommend it to anyone who wants to get going with an online business.

Just adding a bit of personal information. I live on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. I have 3 sons and a daughter, along with 3 granddaughters and a grandson. They are all lovely people.

Your goals are totally realistic and when you achieve the first one, it will be just a matter of scaling to reach the second one. The Internet works wonderful when you have your formula for success down which you are going to be getting from the training here at WA.

Once you get this formula down the sky is truly the limit Phil! I look forward to working with you and seeing you make your goals a reality. :)

Phil I truly believe that these goals that you set for yourself three years ago were absolutely attainable and I hope that you crushed them by now. If you have not yet, that's absolutely ok as I have realized that this process is a marathon and not a sprint. Best wishes!

Phil,
Thanks for stopping by to say hello! Thanks also for joining WA as a Premium member. I know you will enjoy all the people from around the world. The good thing is that you are fit and have a positive mind set. Even though you have had some bad luck, I know you will be able to turn it all around.

I am wishing you this Christmas Eve all the best in the New Year.

Phil, I am sorry to hear about your struggles. With this being an international platform, the money you receive in US Dollars on the account with the exchange rate for Australian currency will almost double the value. When you are dealing with international currency conversions that makes the financial world a little more interesting. I recently had a friend from Australia send me 150.00 in Australian currency, but when I received it in American dollars it was only 106.00. Check your exchange rates and learn about them from the financial institutions, it will make a difference for your online financial conversions. I hope this helps. God Bless.

Thank you, Angela. USD currently convert to AUD at around 1.75.

I've picked up around $720 this month from by book sales on Amazon so, yes, very aware of the importance of exchange rates.

Works the other way, too, of course when I'm buying something in USD.

All the best to you and yours for Xmas.

Phil
