About Pianodad
Joined August 2013
Hello WA Community.
I am new to internet marketing, although I have been an active and successful seller on Ebay for several years. I am 69 years old and have been married to my wife for 41 years this August. We have two daughters, ages 30 and 36, and we live in Austin, TX.

My various careers over the years have included School Bus Driver, Commercial Photographer and Insurance Sales and Management.

At age 53 I began to practice martial arts and at age 58 was awarded a black belt. At age 67 I began to study playing piano, and now wish I had started 60 years earlier, I enjoy it so much.

In 2010 I retired from a 30 year career in the financial services industry.
I have been exploring possibilities to earn additional income and, through a zig-zag trail through various on-line training programs, happened to find the WA sight. I am intrigued, curious, and close to being inspired by what I have seen so far. I look forward to participating with you. Knock 'em alive out there!. Tom Young, Austin, TX

Money Goals
This may seem a bit off base, and may sound like I'm avoiding the question...but over the years I have set various dollar specific goals and achieved many of them. But each time I found the result to be less than satisfactory. When i set out to earn $100,000 per year in my career - that was a lot of money in my world. Several years later, when I finally got there, circumstances had changed in such a way that the 100K felt the same as the 30K did when I set the 100k goal, (and I kept chasing a higher number).This was because I did not celebrate and appreciate along the way.

So here is what I will answer to the three questions I look for in financial terms is a experience of freedom, satisfaction and joy.

What will that look like? Well, I anticipate feeling satisfaction and joy whenever I earn my first $ through my first website. (Will I want it to continue?...of course...but I'm not going to wait for some farther out "big" goal. My intention is to celebrate and be grateful each step of the way. I am already experiencing a sense of freedom by having joined this community, and by being in touch with other freedom seekers, and I love that!.

On a more down to earth level: I will be working toward earning an additional $1,500 per month within the next 6 months. and to ultimately pay off $200,000 worth of debt within three years. These are just the games I am setting up to play. My real success will be measured in how much fun I have doing it.

All the best to all y'all. Tom
