About PhilBrewster
Joined January 2017
Hello All. My name is Phil. I am a retired Registered Nurse and a Naval Vietnam Veteran living in Northeast Georgia, home of the Georgia Bulldogs in Athens. I have dedicated my efforts with multiple types of Internet marketing including MLM, spent more money than was wise and yet I am willing to give it another reasonable go. I truly believe this is my time. Life begins at 70.

I am a follower of the Buddhist Pathway and would like nothing better than to be able to serve others wherever they are. To be able to help others, I must first learn how to help myself.

January 11th, 2017
I had a mental flashback while meditating and recalling when I first started playing the flute at age 12. I waited several weeks for it to arrive and so excited for my first session with the Musical Director. It did not go so well. I had a practice session with him twice a week for an hour each session. It took me three weeks to be able to get the first sound to come out of my instrument. From this ecstatic moment and with daily practice I went on to become first chair in our school concert band. It didn't stop there. I went on to become a solo flutist and won top honors at state competition.

What does this have to do with Wealthy Affiliates. Very much! I am having the same type of experience learning the lessons, setting up a domain, developing a niche, the entire program. I thought I had struck my first chord when I went to search for a topic. As I went to Rubix I was looking for the words and topics and thought I needed to look for the words with highest numbers. Whoa! I became a Premium member and watched Kyle with the one hour bonus video. I was going absolutely backwards. With those high numbers I now realize that is where I had the very least chance for success.

OK. Now I'm ready to not only learn, but to ask questions wherever I am able.

Update: January 16, 2017
Here in the states of the US, we celebrate the birthday of Martin Luther King. A quote of his:

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."

~Martin Luther King Jr.~

This certainly applies to all of here on Wealthy Affiliate.

Hi there Phil, thanks for the follow and I'm now following you back.

I really like the quote and, yes, you're absolutely right, it does apply to all here in WA.

It's great to see how much you've progressed, well done!

Just quickly, I'm a premium member, on Course 2, Lesson 8, I can't remember seeing Kyle's one hour bonus video - could you please point me to where I can see it, thanks in advance if you can.

Cheers,

Jacqueline

Hello Phil,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

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! :)

Thanks for following my progress. Just like you Phil, I retired at age 70 last October, 2016 coming from a financial and accounting background. I'm not ready to retire, that's why I decided to start an Online Marketing Business and having been able to learn from WA to create a website is just mind boggling. Joined WA 2nd week of December, 2016 and it's now on our 2nd week of the New Year, I can't believe that I'm finishing up training Level 2, Lesson 4. Happy New Year Phil.
