About Rick H
Joined November 2013
My name is Rick, and I am a disabled senior on Social Security suffering from terminal curiosity. I have been following the internet marketing rodeo circuit for too many years without much success, but someone once said 'you only lose if you quit'. So I am optimistically hoping WA provides what I need to complete the 8 second ride to be a professional Internet rodeo competitor.
I have been married 50 years, have 4 children, 17 grandchildren, and 2 great-grandchildren. I live in Southern Oregon, and my life would be perfect if I had enough disposable income to take my wife out to dinner a couple of times a month, and hopefully, that honeymoon we never took. I took advantage of the discount offer during the first 7 days and upgraded to the Premium membership, and I am really glad I did.
Rick H's Goals 3
Money Goals
I know these goals probably look like I am not aiming high enough, but please consider the following;
I. I already make $1600 per month on Social Security. It is just not quite enough to meet my purposes.
2. I am 69 years old, and I have been married to my wife 50 years. I have no desire to work myself into another heart attack just for money.
My purpose is simply to be able to take my wife out to dinner a couple of times a month, and to take her on that honeymoon we never had. She is the rainbow in my life, and whatever lies ahead I want it to be for her.
Having said that; I will say if I should get ridiculously rich I promise not to complain.

QUESTION #1: How much money would you be happy earning?
Ans; $500 per month.

QUESTION #2: How much would you be ecstatic earning?
Ans; $ 1500 per month

QUESTION #3: And how much TIME are you willing to invest to achieve these goals?
Ans; 6 to 8 hours per day, until it happens.

Those are some realistic goals and with the amount of time that you are willing to put into it, you should have no problem reaching those goals. The training and resources here make it easier than you would originally think to complete tasks and to move forward.

It doesn't matter if you are aiming low or high. Personally I prefer aiming low because it is more realistic and you can reach them easier and faster. Then you can aim higher next time. Does one climb a ladder starting at the fifth rung or at the bottom rung?

Just stick to the step-by-step training, ask question when you have them, continue moving forward, and have fun. - Many blessings to you on your new online business.

I agree with the health aspect, if not for the fun of networking and helping others succeed, then wouldn't be a good thing.

Wow! Congratulations for being married for so many years, and for such a beautiful comment about your wife. I hope you make and reach your goals. And 6 to 8 hours to not get another heart attack is the important part. Sending you blessings and many more happy years with your wife. Good luck to you. :)

Hi and Welcome to WA. Thanks for following me back

Thanks Labman, It appears we have something besides WA in common. I was a K-9 handler supervisor in the Air Force, and after I also trained dogs. My first desire was to train protection dogs, but all my potential clients were elderly folks who wanted to take a walk at night and feel safe. They had no concept of the amount of liability nor the ongoing training it takes. The others seem to be shady characters who were growing illegal agriculture in the woods.
So I trained basic and advanced obedience and come to love it much more. It was foundational to any other advanced work, and the clients were plentiful and grateful they could live with fido in a state of peace.
Stay in touch Labman!

Nice way to put it "illegal agriculture". We have actually been warned by our Forest Rangers not to enter any buildings while on a search. LEs get that task. Way out here in Western NY, there are lovely little cooking shops that supply downstate with all kinds of illicit materials.

They typically will use booby traps so we allow the Law Enforcement personnel to handle any abandoned or apparently abandoned structures.
