About Rickgcrocker
Joined November 2014
Hello to Everyone @ WA. I'm a 60 yr old Internet Marketer, married to the most beautiful girl on the planet, I have 5 AWESOME children, 3 of which are grown, and a 13 yr old son and 10 yr old daughter living with us outside of Charlotte NC. I was a Financial Advisor for 25 yrs before retiring 5 yrs ago for Health Challenges. I also have 2 sweet grandsons who live in Winston Salem NC, about 1 1/2 hrs from us.

Let me give every person here a word of advice, Wisdom from an Old Man who has been trying to make a living online since 2009, if you truly want to be a successful online entrepreneur, create a new email address after reading this post, where all you receive are emails and content related to what you're doing in your Wealthy Affiliate business. Trust me on this one, I've done it all, I've spent a fortune and have nothing to show for it, I've heard it all, and I can guarantee you unless you have a system you can follow like what's offered here @ WA, your odds of failing are almost a 100%. You have a choice to make, believe what I'm telling you and follow my advice, or continue down the same path, buying everything that guarantees you success, thinking you've found the opportunity that's going to make you rich this time, and let me know how it works out. There is no shortcut to success in any field, especially the Internet marketing space, so stop whatever you're doing not related to the WA program, create a new email address after finishing this post, and follow the lead of WA and those that are succeeding here now. Find a mentor, share your successes and your failures, your frustrations and concerns, stay the course, get involved with the community, and I'll see you at the top.

I'm available anytime for anyone who has any questions or encouragement, you've got to give back in order to get, remember where you heard this.
Good luck to all, Take Massive Action Daily, a bite at a time, and before too much longer, you'll be living a life you'd never dreamed possible.

Great goals Rick,

The first step to achieving success online is to set some goals and now that you have done this you can start working towards them. Your goals are absolutely achievable and realistic. Dedicate yourself to working through the training, taking action, and getting help when you need it.

I am personally here to help you and there are many others within the community that will reach out to help too.

You are already doing great, keep it up!

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for following me. I’m pretty impressed with WA training and I think we will find a gold mine of information. Hmmm, seems like geniuses like us tend to gather in the same place (lol). Anyway, here’s wishing you all my best for your success with online marketing. You have good advice about email. I keep 5 addresses each for a different endeavor. One was dormant until I joined WA and now all WA related correspondence goes there. Anyway, been online since 2004. Only piddled around with affiliate marketing. Some AdSense here and there on my websites. Anyway, I'm 61 and decided to monetize my sites recently. Looking to put in some passive income that will be effective and revenue generating. This new path is going to be facinating … GrampaMike

Rick... you mention "find a mentor". Wow, I would give my favorite stiletto high-heels to have a mentor willing to take me on. I don't expect a Jeni in a bottle or a Fairy God Mother... just someone to help me over the rough spots I am encountering and - okay, being kind of a muse with inspiring me to KEEP GOING when I am feeling challenged.

How do I bring about such a relationship with an experienced, knowledgeable, and successful WAer?

Hey Rick...great to connect...and great advice; I hear you big time. And yes, the 100% failure rate is a fact; you either make it by short-changing others as 99% of online gurus master, or you go broke, intentionally or not, lol. To your super success with WA here in 2015; God bless you and your family and all you do.

ps...have good friends in Hickory NC... as well as Southern Pines NC...just there past April.

Thank You Julie, you are so sweet to give of your time to others, expecting nothing in return. This is such a rare breed of people in this community, so many willing to help and give of themselves. We live in such a cold cruel world these days, so much hatred, and violence, and lack of respect and regard for others. WA is like a sanctuary, a place to come and know you're cared about, knowing that when you need something, someone will step up unexpectedly to offer a hand as best they can. What a blessing this is, WA is a gift that money can't buy and I consider it a privilege to be a member here. When I wake up each morning, before my feet ever hit the floor, I commit to myself to do at least one thing that day that takes me a step closer to reaching my ultimate goal of growing a business online and creating a lifestyle I've always dreamed of having.
Thanks for all you do Julie, I appreciate you, all the best to you.

What is the purpose of a new email address?...so far I do fine with my regular email service. Thanks for all your advice and encouragement. I hope you (and me) are successful at this.
Reply
rickgcrocker Premium
Hi Max, using your regular email may be OK for you, it all depends on how much email you receive. The reason I created a separate email address is because I get a ton of emails. I don't open most of them, but I do catch myself spending way too much time reading emails unrelated to my business, I get distracted and end up losing my focus. Pay attention to how much time you're spending on email in the course of a day and let that be your guide. A productive idea is to designate specific times each day to check emails and reply to any needing a reply. I check emails at 8:00 in the mornings, again at noon, and at the end of the day just before retiring. That works for me. Also, if you haven't done this yet, create an email from the domain name you're using for your website, ex: Max@yourwebsite.com. Its looks much more professional as opposed to a Gmail or Yahoo address. Anyone you exchange emails with will more than likely look at your website since it's in your email address and leave a favorable impression that you have a legitimate business.
For what it's worth, keep pressing on Max !!

I just wanted to say hello and thank you for the service, time and effort you have given to this community at WA. It personally means a great deal to me to have what you offer as a resource while learning how to make a living on line.

Hi Rick, Nathaniell here. Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started.

Right now, there are just two things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. The support here at WA is the best in the internet marketing industry...please take advantage of it.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button or just click this link https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1/getting-rolling.

There are a ton of other features you have access to right now, but they are explained in your main training linked above. Your #1 job right now is to get to lesson 1!

I also wanted to let you know that if you join the premium membership in this 7 day window you'll get a TON of awesome stuff from me.
