About Richardgb
Joined April 2014
Updated April 2021...
My elevator speech, developed during the 1980s, has not changed:
"I help individuals, and teams, who want to achieve something, to figure out what they really want and how to get there, and to stay motivated while they get things done. It usually doesn't matter what the subject matter is."

I first joined WA in 2014 but other challenges at the time led to me leaving after just 1 month. I came back in August 2020.

I've wanted to build a business online for some years because it will eventually enable my wife and me to travel, and I can stay in touch with the business wherever there is internet access. Born and bred in England, where I have lived most of my life, I am now living in Portugal (my wife is Portuguese).

Between 2014 and 2020 I put some time into developing skills in WordPress and learning what I could about aspects of marketing online, although I still had no operational online marketing experience. I 'investigated' a few online business/marketing training organisations that provide support for new and experienced entrepreneurs. Having been here for about 8 months now I can honestly say I had found nothing to compare with the WA experience.

I believe the combination of the following Premium Membership attributes is probably unique:
- 120 high quality, well organised, progressive lessons from beginner to eventual expert;
- Countless additional and regularly augmented modules on an enormous range of related subjects;
- Access to one of the best keyword research tools available(Jaaxy);
- Provision of fast, reliable web hosting and dedicated technical support;
- Excellent turnaround of answers to questions when asked;
- A large actively supportive community of like-minded people... all of whom are or want to be, earning money online, and most genuinely want to help each other.

I don't like to spend much time talking about myself so here is a brief introduction to me ...

I am past the normal U.K. retirement age (the concept of retiring is one that I've never accepted). I’ve enjoyed an eclectic range of interests and a varied career. A range of sports, musician, programmer, project management, business development management, financial director, NLP Master, business coach and facilitator to name a few.

During the 1980s, the realisation that I loved helping others move towards achieving what they want kind of crept up on me. When, towards the end of the 80s, my employer of the day offered a 6-week course to train a small number of people in facilitation and coaching skills I jumped at the chance. I have worked as a facilitator and coach, offline, ever since.

I'm here creating a business of my own online; if you think there is anything I can help you with, just ask. You'll make my day.
To your success.
Richard

Hi Trent
Welcome to WA.
The key to success here is simple.
Follow the training (you’re doing great), do the exercises and whenever you need to, ask specific questions. The best place to ask questions is under Help.
