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, I just love your profile! First, terminal Curiosity! OMG that is awesome, and that you love your wife of 50 years just almost brings me to tears. Very seldom do we hear of such love stories (and we need them!). So, from what I've seen, if you work hard, you will succeed! Best wishes to you and thanks for the follow! :)

Hi Rick, Sounds like you have learned a few lessons as a Internet marketer. I have found it to be helpful all the training and Activity dashboard. You can get a question answered pretty darn quick. I hope things happen so you can take your wife to dinner. Have a nice day. Sherrie

Everything is going well, just working a few hours everyday, and trying to absorb it all. At my age the speed bumps in life begin to show their damage. Just means it will take me a little longer but I will get there. Thanks for the encouragement.

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.

Welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate Online Business community. In the coming days you are doing to learn about how the Internet can be leveraged to earn a substantial amount of money online. BUT, before this can happen you need to understand that in order to achieve success at anything, it will take a bit of work and you will hit a few bumps in the road along the way.

That is why I am here and that is why there is a big community here that is behind you (and rooting for you) every step of the way. If you ever need anything Rick, I am here to help so just let me know.

You can get started right away by working on the "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)" course found here:

Hello Rick and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!! My name is Scott and I am here to help you get started making money online. Before you even think about making money though I want to let you know about a few things that is critical to your success here at WA.

1. You are building a business and this will take quite some time. You are not going to see success overnight or in a week. It will happen but you need to work really hard at this and devote some time to it each day.

2. You need to have a schedule that you can stick with and be able to work on this for at least 30 minutes everyday.

3. Set yourself some goals that you would like to work towards. These should be financial goals along with non-financial goals. You can list your financial goals by adding them to the following discussion here. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started/what-are-your-money-goals By doing this it tells me that you really are serious about making money online and not just curious.

4. If you want to have a successful website that is going to get ranked for lots of awesome low competition keywords. You are going to need a keyword research tool that is reliable, accurate, and is always up to date. With Jaaxy you will get all of this, and so much more. You can sign up for your Free trial account at www.jaaxy.com and get your first 30 searches for Free.

5. Try to not get discouraged or overwhelmed because there is lots of information for you to learn here. There is plenty of help here within the community so if you ever get stuck or need any help pop over to live chat and ask questions.

HOW TO SETUP YOUR ACCOUNT

Step 1. Upload a picture of yourself, This doesn't have to be a picture of yourself but it helps people get to know you better here.

Step 2. Write a little bit about yourself in your Bio. You could use this area to introduce yourself to the community and tell a little about what you would like to achieve within WA.

Filling out your profile is a very important step in getting started here. You will get 10 times more help when you do this. People feel like they can connect with you on a personal level and they are more inclined to follow you as well.

HOW TO GET STARTED ON YOUR FIRST TRAINING LESSON

You can view your first lesson here https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1 This is a 10 lesson course that will walk you through the process of choosing a niche, getting your website setup and how to write your first page of content.

This is designed so that you can check off each task as you complete it.
