About Ricargon
Joined May 2018
Hi, my name is Rick. I'm a single dad and travel the USA for a living. I've been doing this for 15 years and love to go different places within the United States. The problem is, I don't always do it for pleasure.

I'm a truck driver and want to try something different to change things a bit. I want to spend more time with my daughter and take her to places I've been to within the United States.

I'm looking to start an online business and so far Wealthy Affiliate looks like something I'll be able to use to finally get moving forward in that endeavor.

I couldn't say this about other internet marketing systems, but I will say this about Wealthy Affiliate. WA is the real deal when it comes to a platform that helps people succeed in their goals for accomplishing success in an industry that has made several millionaires and continues to do so. The community of active and excited members from all over the worlds is proof of that.

I truly am blessed, excited an honored to be here amongst successful entrepreneurs that have made their first $50 $100 $1000 and more here in WA. It's happening for them, it's going to happen for me and I know it will happen for anyone else that believes they can do it.

Best success to all who have joined WA for a better financial way of life. This is where your life is going to change for the better.

Be safe, and God bless

Hi, Rick.
Paul Mindra here from Ontario, Canada.

I'd like to take a moment to thank you for the follow-back.

I started following you as a result of a very encouraging comment that you made to a very new member here (Mike) that was struggling to get started.

I really like your mindset and style of writing. I am very pleased to make your acquaintance and look forward to learning, sharing and serving with you as we all move forward here.

Kindest regards, Rick.

Paul.

Hi Paul
Thank you for adding me to your follow list. I've added you to mine as well,

Thank you for your comment and kind words. I truly believe that when we help others get through difficult moments, no matter what we do, we reap the rewards in the long run.

I remember being in this type of situation, many years back, where I had no idea of what to do or where to begin. I would receive advice from the marketing sages, and it felt good to know that I wasn't alone on this journey of entrepreneurship.

I try my best to pass on what I've learned and experienced with those who have the passion and desire to succeed in making a better life for themselves.

You and I or anyone in this community can't be there for every single person. So I try to give my best advice and hope that someone else going through what, in this case, Mike was going through, will benefit from that advice.

That's what this community does throughout this site. There are so many WA members that post their advice and wisdom on their blogs, their lessons, and in their comments. I'm glad to be a part of this community that can share and help others get reenergized with hope and confidence and keep them moving forward.

Mr. Mindra, Paul, thank you again for adding me to your follow list. My virtual door is open to you and you're welcome to drop by anytime and share thoughts and ideas. It was a pleasure and my honor to have met you.

Be safe, and God bless

Rick

Love your Bio!
Just followed you hope you follow back! I have tried a couple of times in the past few years to start up a business on the internet only to discover that there are so many scams. When I landed on WA at first I was a bit skeptical but soon realized that 800,000 + people can't all be wrong and swayed into something that doesn't work. I paid the monthly fee and then quit. I felt like I lost my best friend. It cost me $8 additionally to jump back in and I decided to go Premium Yearly.....it was the best move I ever made. I figure if I take even up to 2 years to learn and achieve it is like going to University and all this info will stay with me and never will be lost, only stored away in the recesses of my mind. Looking forward to reading your blogs etc.

Much Success to you Ricargon may your barns be full!

Your friend and helper:

Hi Carla
You can call me Rick. I absolutely will follow you back, thanks for following me by the way.

I understand where you're coming from and I'm sure most people that are genuinely looking to make money online feel the same way you do.

Sometimes we have to let go and reflect on what we're experiencing. So don't feel bad for leaving or thinking you've failed or are not good enough. Most entrepreneurs go through that and more. So if you're failing, you're learning and to continue learning you will fail some more. So if you get used to failing, it's only adding to your knowledge base.

When the focus is on becoming successful, failure will be present, not in control.

The community here is amazing. There are many successful entrepreneurs in WA along with some naysayers and negative driven members. I tend to give the "negative Nancy's" a bit of slack because I can understand why they feel the way they do. I myself was in their shoes about five years ago, but that's another story to be told later.

I read your bio and you said, " I learn at least 1-2 new things each day on this site and want to dig in every day and learn as much as I can." That is the key to becoming successful. The habits that you practice now will pave the way to your success.

We need to stay focused every day and be willing to accept failure when it comes. With a community like WA, how can we fail?

I love reading posts that members share when they've experienced success. The excitement in their expressed words says it all. I believe you'll do fine Carla. You have me and the rest of the successful WA members ready and willing to help.

I wish you the best and hope to hear of your successes as well.

Again, thanks for adding me to your follow list.

Be safe and God bless

Thanks for the invite Loes.

I have been through so many blogs and lessons it's a never-ending task. I try to focus more on what I'm working on at the time and take it step by step.

I did peek at your profile page and noticed the lessons you have. I do believe I've been to a couple, not sure, as I said I've been to so many, but thank you for mentioning it here on my profile page.

I will take some time and just sift through everything you have.

Thanks, Loes!

Hey Rick! Welcome to WA premium. You're off to a good start with your blog post. I'd like to encourage you to follow the training and do the tasks step by step, even if you think you know them.

They're setup so that one builds on the last one and reinforces your knowledge. I've seen members skip sections or jump around in their training. This gets them in trouble. They become lost, as it were, and just like in that big truck, it takes you a while to get turned around and back on route again.

Within a very short space of time you'll have your website up and begin adding content to it. Be thinking about what niche you want to pursue. It's something that you'll need to be able to write a couple of 1,000 word or more posts per week for at least a year.

Don't think about monetizing too soon. How do you feel if you go to a website that's new, but filled with ads? You probably leave and don't go back. I know that's what I do.

I wrote this blog post link below) to give new members some answers to questions that aren't always easy to find. Please read it when you get a chance. It might help you get where that GPS doesn't always get you without getting into a, "When possible make a U turn" situation. With a little bit of luck and some hard work you'll be out of that big truck and enjoying life and your daughter for many years to come. Best of luck to you!

Hello again Bryan

Yes, sir! I couldn't agree with you more. Thank you for that link and I will check it out. I have also added you to my list of followers so I'll be checking out your site for advice and points for sure!

Thank you for checking out my first, but starter blog post and you'll be seeing more to come in the next few months.

Good to see a fellow trucker and computer geek like me as well. I have a degree in computer network systems and also got to study the COBOL language back in the early 90's. It's not "punch card" type stuff, but I remember going over that history in our class studies.

Looks like we have a few things in common, computers, trucking and becoming entrepreneurs.

Wishing you the best Bryan, see ya around buddy.

Rick,
Having read your profile I really do hope that you will make good on your goals in pursuit of personal freedom.

Your daughter will gain so much with the opportunity of traveling and learning about the world in which she lives, but more, she will have formed memories and a bond with her father that will carry her for a lifetime. There is nothing so powerful as this connection with a Loving parent

So, May you be blessed by your determination and vision. I look forward to following you and reading of the successes you have accomplished...be brilliant, my friend.

Hi Carol,

Thanks for following me, I've also returned the favor. You know, if I were to be asked, "what place would you consider to be, heaven on earth?" I would say, WA. It's like having angels a few keystrokes away waiting to help you succeed. You and everyone I've met so far are coming to me with open arms, what a warm feeling that is to experience everyday.

It was my pleasure meeting you.

Best wishes to you on your journey as well.

You have a awesome day!

Welcome to WA Premium. You have joined a community that is very supportive, encouraging and positive.

I just happen to pass your comments in Live Chat. You don't have to be a paid member for responses back. If you don't get a response right away, there may not be a lot of people in Live Chat at that moment. Someone did answer but I think you were gone. Please know the community is here to help and support you.

I wish you all the best here in WA.

Hi Yclayton,

Thank you for your response. I'm very new to WA, it's been a little over 24 hours now and I was checking out the site features yesterday. I was on chat and saw people chatting so I thought I'd say hi. No one responded, so I thought that maybe it was because I wasn't a "premium member".

If someone did respond I had already logged off and thank you for replying to letting me know that my comment could be seen.

I'm learning a little at a time and it looks great. I'm liking this platform more and more.

Thanks for your help,

Rick

Hey Rick and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 7 years ago. I was looking to learn how to supplement my income through Internet Marketing and what I've found was so much more.

By 2010, I was working full-time from home. These days, ALL of my income comes from my ventures online. In fact, my wife just recently quit her job to start her own business as well. Internet Marketing and Wealthy Affiliate have provided us with amazing opportunities (we've bought a house, get to travel the world, and best of all, no longer spend time "going to work") and I'm incredibly thankful to the training, tools, and support here that made it all possible. :)

I'd love for you to see the same level of success. So, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

To get started, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself. If there's anything I can do for you Rick, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve

PS. Once you setup your profile, reply to this message and I'll send you my 10 Hottest Business Ideas for 2017. They'll really help you get moving quickly here!
