About Richardgb
Joined April 2014
I wrote an elevator speech, back in the 1980s, which has been reviewed many times and still 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."

I first joined WA in 2014 and 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 allow my wife and me to travel, and I can stay in touch with the business 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).

From 2014 to 2020 I put some time into learning WordPress and found many free resources for learning about marketing online. However, I took no online marketing action, mainly because I had little time, and wasn't sure of the optimum way forward. During that time I looked at a few online business/marketing training organisations that provide support for new and experienced entrepreneurs.

Having been here for a while now I can honestly say I had 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;
- 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.

Now I'm past the normal U.K. retirement age, (the concept of retiring is one that I've never really bought into).

I’ve enjoyed 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

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

Hi Richard,
Just wanted to stop in and thank you for following! It's great to connect with you here at WA. Reading your profile, I've never really understood the concept of retiring either...at least not from the things I love doing. I'll keep working at those as long as I have breath in my body! Now, my day job is a different story, can't wait to retire from that, lol.

Wow, it looks like you've had quite a few different careers and experience in a lot of things, which I'm sure will help you in your own endeavors online. You sound very much like myself...it makes my day to hear from other members as well and if I can help someone even better!

Best wishes :) ~Sherry

Hey, Richard. Welcome to the platform where even the experts aren't experts, but I beg to differ with your background. Turning it into a blog could have rewards of abundance for years to come .. sports, musician, programmer and project management are just some among others that you can turn your talents towards to feel fulfilled while doing so - maybe consider simply providing advice on how one might go about becoming successful at what they do best? Technology is advancing every day, which means there will be more opportunities available soon!

Hi John
Thank you for those encouraging words! That is the direction in which I am headed towards. If you look at my website you’ll see what I mean, especially in what I call the “GROWTH Process”. I’m not sure if it’s advice so much as practical support.
Thanks again.
:-)

Hi Kl
On your profile you call yourself “happy go lucky” and you clearly care about others!

With your attitude you’ll inevitably help a lot of other people as well, and will likely be extremely successful as a result.

I believe you will. if you believe too…
:-)
