About RalphJones
Joined September 2016
My name is Ralph C Jones. I am a son, father, husband and I work in finance. I am interested in health, aging, sports, and nutrition. I am an early bird typically up between 2-4 am getting started with my day. I run with my two dogs 5 or 6 times a week and love to keeping myself busy. I have been told I am a good motivational speaker but I feel more like I am an information junkie with a passion for helping people reach their potential.

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

I just visited your site and left a very lengthy comment for you! That post ' transitioning to a nursing home' I found very informative as I could compare it to my mum's situation.

Keep working hard, having some fun and don’t forget to ask questions. Bye the way keep up the grilled cheese sandwiches.

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 Ralph, thanks so much for the follow, following you now (of course) BTW ~ I've just come back from your website, it is a site that I intend to visit regularly as it is a topic close to my heart.

I've read one your articles already (and commented on) and enjoy your writing style.

Also, great job ... and I'm impressed and envious that you can just start your day when you wake... you are obviously driven.

Ciao for now
Marty

Thank you sir for the kind words. I saw a blurb about motivation in one of your blogs. I have a 1 month old and a 3 year old that is all the motivation in the world for me. Stay tuned to the website I have lots of good stuff in the pipeline.

Hi Ralph,
Impressive profile!! I was also a runner for a number of years and always with a dog. They get so excited to go out and they need as much exercise as we do. I have been a Pescatarian (vegetarian/ fish only) for a long time. Both have kept me in great shape and healthy. You must be highly-motivated as well.

Best wishes and lots of luck with WA. I am new to this, but very excited about the potential.

Here's to your success!!

cheers!
Jeanine:)

Thank you. I am a routine person, so I have incorporated W/A into my routine and I have taken something mundane out of my routine. Try to get through the certification as quickly as you can, the time will pay dividends.

Hello Ralph ... thank you for the follow. Yikes ... that's a long day unless you go to bed very early. Perhaps your finance work is connected to a stock exchange whose time zone requires that your day (in your home time zone) start so early by the clock.

I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Thanks for the follow Ralph :)

I noticed you're also involved in finance...here's to our success along our WA journey, with the hope of never having to deal with deadlines, 55-60hr weeks and number crunching again...well, no more number crunching until we're tallying up our own earnings! :D

All the best! :)

Good Morning Sammy
Yes I do work in finance and yes I do work too many hours. So it seems we have a ton in common. My sister has twins, and three other kids. I too love to play pool (every year my wish is to play pool with my friends on my birthday). If you have any other social media sites you want me to follow send the link.

SammyM Premium
Wow :) We do have a lot in common. Sounds like your sister also has her hands quite full hey! And hopefully she's laughing more than crying :) lol. Am sure she is tho

Pools always been my favorite pass time joy, whenever i have free time (including a couple o birthdays) :) Make it happen on your next bday Ralph!

Thank you very much for offering to follow me :) i'm not a HUGE social media fan so i'm not even a member of most. When the time comes though, and it most likely will, i'll keep this in mind :) Thanks again

Hi Ralph,

Interesting profile. We share similar interests but man, you are an early bird! I can sometimes manage 5 am but that's as early as it gets. There's something magical about being the only one awake in the house, getting things done while most of the neighborhood is still asleep.

Best of luck to you on your journey to online success!

I typically get in bed around 8 after I put my daughter to sleep. Being awake when the family is asleep does help me get the job done.

8-2? Are you one of those superhumans that can get by with only 6 hours sleep on the regular? I've known a few. Always baffled me how their bodies don't just shut it down but they just keep on going and going.

RalphJones Premium
8 to 2 or 2:30 sounds about right. By no means am I superhuman but I do try to keep busy. Have you taken any of Docub training? He has a training on Product Launches but his training on Facebook Magnetic Marketing Video Tutorial is great.

Thanks for following me, Ralph, and I'm now following you back. I like your self definition of information junkie. That's the ideal onset for success in online business, as you need to have a lot of info that you are thirsty to share with others.
All the best here at WA, Ralph, and let us know how you get on.

thanks for following me--you incorporate those hobbies into your passion to help someone in those areas--for instance when I started in the workplace 30+ years ago there were no opportunities for me in the private sector so either I worked for the government(state) or I worked for myself

When I couldn't get a job with the state I wanted to do group therapy using TA or Psychodrama because I didn't have as Masters or PhD that was difficult--then I realized I always felt comfortable standing in front of groups and moved into professional speaking, without support systems in place to help me build my business and no funds to build up my media kit it was a struggle

Then when the job market began to change with the use of technology it made iot easier for me to build my business with e-courses, e-books, virtual training

I was a member of NSA and watched all the professional speakers change their tactics in how they marketed themselves---look up Tom Antion and listen to his speeches---he gets paid big money to teach other speaker to do exactly what I said to do

That's why this platform is great---it teaches you to build a website and use videos and PPC to market yourself.--you can do your teleseminars with a phone and teleconferencing platform that also allows you to incorporate virtual training as well
Reply
RalphJones Premium
This is a great idea. I will look Tom up and see what I can learn.

DShensky Premium
he sits home--does his training virtually--sells-e-books and e-course, e-newsletters and makes a lot of money and boasts about it---all you need to do is join Toastmasters to build up your skills of speaking in front of groups and your local NSA chapter to learn the 8 platform skills

this video gives you an idea of what he's like---it's not that he's a good techie--it's just that he recognized the change that was coming in technology and is a good marketing

when I first met him 25 years ago he wasn't anything like that size

Hello Ralph,
It is truly incredible how many motivated and successful people are here in WA. It is heartening to see what I have to attempt to live up to. I rise early myself but not quite that early. I would say If you have been told you're a good motivational speaker and you have a passion for helping people then likely it's true. It is a pleasure to meet you and we'll talk again.
Thank you for following,
Ed

Thanks for the follow.Typically hit the sack a little after 8 and when I have had enough sleep my mind just turns on like a light bulb. I have heard online store in the auto industry is a good idea. Will you focus in that area?
Reply

Good morning Ralph,
I have not thought of setting up an online store catering to the auto industry but that is an interesting concept. I'm still searching for a niche to start with. I have a number of possibilities that I am considering and as I become comfortable with them I'll make a selection for the startup.
Thanks for idea,
Ed

Hi Ralph,
I am with you on all of your interests, except 'ageing'
I'm just kidding you Ralph.
Let me say it this way...I don't mind getting older ..I just don't like getting old.
Other than that. Good for you and I wish you every success.
I am still having a chuckle to myself here in Adelaide, Australia.
The reason is if I wasnt like you, that is, wide awake at 3 in the morning, I wouldnt have read your post about being up between 2 and four in the morning....lol.
My best wishes to you Ralph.
Lets see if we can do some good.
Stay in touch.
Paul....from Adelaide , Australia.

Paul, thank you for reading my profile. I go to be early so when I have had enough sleep my mind clicks on. I think aging is interesting and excited about all the possibilities as a niche.

I think it is great your trying to help people make more money but it is my understanding that this kind of advertising is against the community policy. I'm not going to report you (I'm sure someone else will) but please do not send me this invitation again.

Hi Ralph! Hope this message finds you well. I am sorry for the delay in responding to you, but my one of my best friends of 33 years died suddenly and with the celebration of life service, and the overwhelming grief; and inundating emails, i somewhere in the mix lost your message. I want you to know that I appreciate the outreach, and when I get a little further down the road I will likely take you up on your offer. I kind of remember the jest of the message and I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate it!!!
Thanks again! Gwen

Hi Ralph, thanks for following. Good luck with the early bird thing... I like my sleep too much. That's why I'm trying to get out of an industry where I set the alarm for 4am. And then snooze till 5am. :-) 12 hour shifts in mining are enough exercise for me, in anything up to 125F (53C) temperatures.

Thank you for the follow Ralph. Very nice to meet you. I enjoy a similar life to yours, although I'm not up quite that early LOL :-) I live on a large property and love to walk my dogs early in the morning, after I feed my blind Magpie bird! I enjoy working out when I get back from walking the dogs. It's a wonderful community here and I am learning so much, even though I still don't understand fully what I am doing LOL!! It's a fun journsy and only gets better each day. I have plans for a good online business down the track. Take care and have a great day!

Cheers and kind regards,

Lee

That's probably somewhere down the road, Ralph, for sure. For my initial niche, I wanted to do something different, so I've decided to focus on the subconscious mind. It's a very powerful force in all of our lives, so I'm going to do what I can to effectively get the message out there.

Hello Ralph and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
Since you joined you will have come to realise that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you haven't already been doing so, can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
Thank you for the follow and I will follow you as well.
You get stuck you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

Hi again Ralph it’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your day.

Hello Ralph,♫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 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Success at WA most likely sticks to people who stick as well. It's all about perseverance and staying focused on what you want to do. Each journey has its own story yet it might end happy or sad which all depends on the person itself. There will be ups and downs along the way but those who win are the ones who keep on going, learning and improving.
