About Rickhampton
Joined July 2013
I have played the trumpet and flugelhorn for 50 years. I played for 20 of those years with the First Baptist Church of Atlanta Sanctuary Orchestra and with other churches since leaving there about 15 years ago. I now play at Liberty Baptist Church in Hartwell, GA, along with a half dozen other musicians.

On January 17th, I will have been married for 33 years to my wife Donna. We have two grown children, Mike and Kate. Kate is married to Capt. Jordan Hedges of the USMC and is a Harrier pilot deployed to the other side of the world right now. They have two children, Jadyn (3) and Owen (2). Kate and the kids are staying with us for several months during Jordan's deployment.. What a blessing it is to have my grandchildren living with us... and a little bit exhausting.

My son, Mike was living in Texas, but recently came back to hang out with his niece and nephew. He is an online marketer and can also be found on WA, but most of his time is on Facebook. It is good to have so many family members in our home again.

On the side, for several years, I have been creating websites for businesses as well as some non-profits and for my own marketing. I was primarily building with cold fusion and mySQL, but recently was introduced to WordPress. I am using the Genesis framework as my parent theme and many of the Web-Savvy-Marketing Child Themes. http://bit.ly/JSPYxd.

Besides affiliate marketing, I also have been a network marketer for many years. I realize that many people on this site have bad experiences with get rich quick schemes. As for me, I have stuck with the industry through all of my bad choices and discovered that there are some good legitimate opportunities out there. As with affiliate marketing, you just have to learn what not to do or who not to follow.

I'm always looking to make new friends. My Facebook username is rickhampton55 Feel free to friend me.

I would like to reach $4k per month by the end of this year by working my online business 2 hours per day. When I reach $8k per month, I would leave my current employment. My goal is to do that in one year but I will be happy if it takes me until the end of 2014.

That is a great goal. Let us know when you have achieved it so that others are also motivated.

Nice ones Rick, when you reach $4k it will not be all that difficult to double this to the $8K mark. Once you understand the formula it just becomes a matter of scaling.

My son is also marketing online and joined Empower Network. He got me to sign up for the basic plan, but I was really put-off by the immediate up-sale and additional programs to buy. My son has pushed himself to go "All En" and has spent thousands of dollars in the process. I really didn't like the way they do business so I got out quickly. They don't give you the facts until you've paid $25, which they tell you is all it takes to get started.

I think that it's great to be allowed to come inside to discover what it's all about before spending any money. I don't mind being encouraged to upgrade to Premium when it's $47... unless that's just the first step of many. Still looking everything over, but overall, I like what I've seen.

There is nothing beyond our $47 and you can get it even cheaper if you go yearly ($359). I am sorry to hear that your son has been sucked into the EN scheme and sucked out of $1,000's...he is not alone.

You get more here for FREE than you were paying for over there including an education on how to create a REAL business online. It is wonderful to have you here at WA Rick and if you do need anything going forward, please do let me know and I will be more than happy to help you out. :)
