About Regularguy
Joined January 2014
Hi,
My name is Richard Tunison also known online as Just A Regular Guy. I am originally from New York however, now residing in Georgia. I have a degree in Nursing as well as a Masters in Business. I have climbed up the corporate ladder until I actually had become a VP in a major hospital. Needless to say I was fortunate and lived an extremely comfortable lifestyle. Then disaster struck, I got into a motorcycle accident and became permanently disabled. We lost everything, our home got foreclosed on, our boat and cars got repossessed and then had to live off of disability pay. Due to this I started working part-time online since 2008. At the same time my wife and I started our own offline business in which we made a pretty good income. However, it took more time then my previous full time job and I missed many years of my children growing up. I finally decided enough was enough and I was going to make a full-time income online and be able to spend time with my family.

In the beginning with all the so called opportunities out there on the world wide net I like most people lost money instead of earning it. With this being said I didn’t for a moment ever give up. I kept jumping from opportunity to opportunity promoting the next big thing online. I actually started making a small living from doing this but nothing long term. Then I finally woke up and smelled the coffee so to speak. I finally had realized that the only way to really make an online full-time living at home was to treat it just like an offline business.

Keep in mind this does not happen overnight. Anyone who tells you this is not telling you the whole story. I mean think about it, an offline business usually takes at least a year to become successful why would an online business be any different.

Now I am not telling you this to scare you as I am now making an online full-time living and if I can do it so can you.

Touching Story Rich I can relate I am on disability myself an d have been for a few years now I was working full time up until 2006 When I had to leave my previous job due to health problems. like you I turned to th Web to see if I could make some extra money to supplement my disability income and started promoting a few things not really understanding what I was doing just following the crowd so to speak.
And then about a week and a half ago I found WA and I could not believe it the mother load was right there in front of me.

Everything I needed to know about I M (Internet Marketing) was there so I jumped in with both feet and joined as a Starter Member back on March 26th and have not looked back.
I am pleased to meet all my new friends here at WA and wish everyone Success in their new business online.

Hi Richard,
Thank you. When I pull up the page the you tube video automatically plays. It must not for others. Do you know how I make it so it is showing on the page for others?
Reply
regularguy Premium
Hi, it does play automatically, what I meant was turn your text of the youtube video into a link, you can do this by highlighting your text of it then insert link to it, therefore, nobody has to paste and copy your text in order to see the video.

I'm thinking about going with writing about tips and trends of making monely online, since I still haven't found a more focused niche, it's a start. I tent to be a bit of a slow learner, but a very concrete one at that. The 2 posts you will first see there were just for fun and I might not leave them up. Thanks again for the follow and for chatting.

Once you install the plugin be sure to activate it, once activated with plugin will show up in your left column when on your dashboard (towards the bottom) press on that then will give you a full page of options. Check the ones you want to include on your built in editor that is already in place and will add the options to that.

Hi Regularguy, I see you on here most days helping people out, when I go on some of the sites on here, some have their WA link in a little banner on their niche site, is this a good or bad idea, thanks for the follow Rich.
Reply
regularguy Premium
Hi, I also have it on a banner on the side of my page. Depending on the amount of content it is ok to have 2 affiliate links per page. If you have more than that then its considered spammy and will decrease your rankings. Therefore, you have 2 choices you can have 1 banner and 1 link in your content or 2 links in your content and no banners.
Hope this clarifies things for you.

Hi Rich,
I don't know if this would work on your wp theme but for the Radius theme it comes as default if you simply go to Appearance>Radius Options. Then select Blog Options and choose Excerpt (Magazine Style).

I hope that was useful for you.
