About Richanddarla
Joined August 2013
Hi my name is Rich,

I have been Married to the same wonderful woman for just over 13 years. We have 2 pretty awesome kids (one girl, and one boy).

I currently work as a locomotive engineer. It is not a terrible job; good pay and good benefits, the challenge that I have with my job is that I am on call 24/7/365. They don't care if it a holiday or my kiddos' birthdays, I have to go to work. Sometimes they even feel that they have the right to refuse to let me take compensated days off.

Update:
I have made my first $1. I had someone sign-up and prove that they are an actual human. Now I am going for 3 figures :)

My goals are:
1) To get my bills paid off
2) Get some of the money that my kids will need for college set-up
3) Have a financial fallback
4) When I have a solid footing and steady income... Fire my boss

Hi Rich, Thanks for the follow! WA is the Hub of all I do online. Best Training... Great Instructors... And the people here make a Supper Support Team...

I was a total newbie when I started and by the end of next year I will not need any outside income. My business is growing and this is my balancing point. Sometimes I work too hard and don't stop in as often as I would like! And when I return, the Value is always here. This is what I have needed to keep up to date on all that I do.

Thank you for the follow. Like you, I've tried many, many other push button programs, get-rich-tomorrow schemes, and never made a penny. Was lucky enough to even recoup my money. This is the ONLY place where I have been taught how to get started the right way, and given the knowledge to apply to getting started. You will love it here.

Hi rich. Thanks for the follow, and I am following you back. I have been trying different money making systems, and I have been very frustated. I have spent a lot of money and have gotten any where. I do think here with WA that with all the help and forum and their training we have a chance of making some money. Stick with the program and go through their training before making a judgement about this system.
Thanks again for the follow and good luck. Frank

I saw you comment in one of Trevor’s SEO tutorials and decided to come see your page and profile. Your story sounds so similar to another guy who worked hard and now is very successful and to this date still helps others make their living with the internet. How are you coming along at this point?
Reply
Richanddarla Premium
Aloha Mike, We have a lot in common, I have also tried many things to make money, even mlms (couldn't agree with you more about those). As far as how I am doing, I have yet to make any money online however I have learned more in the short time that I have been here then in all my other "attempts". I have managed to invite 7 people to WA. I know that it is just a numbers game like any business, and the more effort (the right way with good content and not gimmicks) that I put in the more it will grow.

Hope that you reclaim your paradise.

Hello Richard!
Thanks for the follow and welcome here. It's a tough job you have, for sure!
If you follow the training and take the required steps you will eventually make a success. Red the testimonials of more senior members here and you will see that some of them have become successful after a year or two. What is required is perseverance and action!
I wish you all the best and if you need any help remember to ask!

Hi Richard,
Thanks for the following. I still work 24/7/365 as a caregiver without pay or benefits.But I expect to generate income in the future. It takes a while and I'm not yet up to level 3 where one learns this.
You joined the right group to reach your goals. But always keep mind your audience and deliver the goods as to what they need.

Thanks. Sounds like we both have a lot of demands on our time. I don't ever wish time away, but am excited to look back after a year of being here and see all the progress that we have made.

Hey Rich:

Thanks for the follow. Whether you know it or not, you have joined a pretty awesome group of folks. I'm still a relative newbie myself but recognized that fact shortly after joining. The main thing to remember is to take it one step at a time. WA offers so much in the way of training that it can seem overwhelming. Don't let it become that and you'll be fine.

Setting up your account will lead to much better help here within the community as people feel like they can connect with you better (with an image and a description)
