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

I have wanted to build a business online for some years because it will eventually enable my wife and I 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 all my life, I find myself spending more and more time in Portugal (my wife is Portuguese).

Between 2014 and 2020 I put some time into developing a little knowledge of 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 6 weeks now I can honestly say I had found nothing to compare with the WA experience.

I believe the following premium level combination of attributes are 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;
- with 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.

Now... I don't like to spend much time talking about myself but having been here for a short while now I feel it’s time to introduce myself a little more ...

I am past the normal U.K. retirement age (the concept of retiring is one that I have never bought into). 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.

My elevator speech, developed at the time, has not changed:
"I help people, in teams or as individuals, who want to achieve more or less anything, 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 am here to learn how to create 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 ...

Hi Richard, thanks for the follow and I am now following you back. I have to agree with you about retirement. I don't think of it as retirement. I also don't feel that there is a certain age for it. I feel that it is done when we have the ability to be able to still enjoy life and still live without worrying about where our next paycheck is coming from.

So with that, I look forward to seeing your success and wish you the best!

Thanks for following me and I've followed you back. You make a good point regarding retirement. Age doesn't matter even though society, in general, can make it feel that way. Continuing to grow and learn helps keep your mind active, no matter your age.

I wish you success in growing a profitable business here at WA.

Hi Richard, thanks very much for the follow. It's good to meet you and I wish you all the best with your WA journey.

What a huge difference you would have seen in WA since your first experience in 2014.

In 2014 I joined as a starter member and did absolutely nothing. A year later I upgraded to Premium. It certainly was the best decision regarding online marketing.

I've returned the compliment and am now following you.

All the best,
