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.

I'm now 76 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 platform isn't the most lucrative, but it's 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.

Kudos to retirees, as I am one also. Your goal sounds achievable, hope you reach it.

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. :)

Hi Phil,

What a wonderful profile.
I just popped over to say Hi, and a massive thank you for adding me into your network, it is truly, very appreciated.

I too had a bad experience from Shopify. Luckily I realised fairly quickly the potential for it to become a Money Pit, and got out sharpish.

I look forward to sharing in your undoubted success on this platform.
