About Richardgb
Joined April 2014
I've reviewed my elevator speech many times since it was created in the early 1980s. It's never 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."

I wanted to build a business online for some years because it will allow my wife and me to travel while staying in touch wherever there’s internet access. Born and bred in England, where I’ve lived most of my life, I’m now living in Portugal (my wife is Portuguese).

I first joined Wealthy Affiliate in 2014 and challenges at the time led to me leaving after just 1 month. I came back 6 years later, in August 2020.

In the interim, I put some time into learning WordPress and found many free resources for learning about online marketing. However, I took no action in marketing, mainly due to a lack of time, and because I wasn't sure how to get started well.

During that time, I looked at a few online business and marketing training organisations that provide support for new and experienced entrepreneurs.

Having returned and having been here for a while now I can honestly say I found nothing that compares with the WA experience.

I believe the combination of the following attributes is probably unique:
- 120 (Premium) high quality, regularly updated, well organised, progressive lessons from beginner to eventual expert (there is now much more through Premium Plus membership);
- 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 for 10 sites with, I can honestly say excellent, dedicated technical support;
- Fast 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'm now past the normal U.K. retirement age, (the concept of retiring is one that I've never really understood or aspired towards.

I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy an eclectic range of interests and a varied career. A range of sports, musician, programmer, project management, business development, financial director, NLP Master, business coach and facilitator to name a few.

During the 1980s, the realisation that I loved helping others 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've 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 Richard
!’m glad you came back to WA. I did something similar, started WA in 2018 and really didn’t get back to it until this year. I’ve been retired for 15 years from the field of education. I have two adult boys that think they’re my parents lol. They say mom, why don’t you just sit and crochet like you used to? I just smile and one of them says you know she’s not listening to us.

I’ll be 76 in a few weeks. Yesterday I was 30! I like to write and now it’s time to settle down with a Niche that I’m passionate about and the millions of readers will look forward to logging in to see what MurphysMom has been up to.

All the best to you Richard!

Hello Richard, thank you so much for following up on me. You have such vast experience. Certainly, I am willing to join hands with the experienced to also build up an online business. I am eight years to my retirement from the government job and I want by that time to have gained enough knowledge and skills in my new found business. Synergy means power. Once again thank you.

I must agree with you Richard. I do not believe there is a certain age you need to be when you retire. There is still so much to do, after you get to that so called retirement age. It is great to have you here and I wish you all the best. Yo
