About RicoSuave196
Joined September 2017
I have been in the Financial Services field for over 30 years now, either as a Financial Adviser, Stock Broker or Commodities Broker and the stress got the best of me. While I enjoyed the personal interactions with folks, the daily routine of a broker - Commodities or stocks - simply became to unfulfilling for me. For the past 4 years I decided to help Sales reps find new positions in the Pharmaceutical Sales and Medical Device Sales field as a recruiter. I enjoy that, however, the compensation has failed to meet my expectations. Now, don't get me wrong, I have no issue with working hard, but in that field, so many factors have to come together to make a placement, that it requires for me to find other options to subsidize my income. So, here I am ! Ready, willing & able to learn what I can from Wealthy Affiliate and it's members. Thank you all in advance !

Hi, Rico!

You can do this. We'll help you.

A six-figure income is doable. However, please remember this is not get-rich-quick. After you've completed the training and gained a few new skills, it is possible to quickly make money. However, in the beginning, it is necessary to learn the skills, build a website, create content and convince the search engines your new website can be trusted.

Your background in securities is a tremendous asset you can capitalize on if you wish.

I look forward to helping you,
Gary

Hello Rico... fellow finance geek here... I hear you about the financial services sector. It's a race to the bottom.

By the way, if you look at the age distribution in that sector, you'll find it skewed in favor of the younger generation. Most of my ex-colleagues have moved on to other industries or started businesses when they hit their 40s. Very few survive to make it to the top, and the financial rewards come at a great cost to your family and health.

My wishes for success on your journey.

Hi, Zalasad ! Ha ! All I can say is "count me in as one of those burned out and ready to move on !" guys. Obviously we have both come to that conclusion. All the best to you in your new venture here with WA ! May it reward us commensurate with our efforts ! :)

Hello Rico,
we do have one thing in common: commodity trading. As a trader for 25 years I have developed a simple and efficient system and an approach to trading different from most.
I am looking forward to exchange with you because my goal in Online business is to offer a trading course and I could use good advice from someone that has worked in this fied.

RicoSuave196 Premium
Ha, Phil ! Those stressful days (I represented various CTAs) are long behind me. What markets did you trade ? Crude or the S&P, perhaps ? How are you doing with Wealthy Affiliate, thus far ?
Reply
PhilDumont Premium
I mainly trade softs and grains.

As for WA I am just starting. I did create couple website but I still have to develop contents ( I do have a good number of post already written) and familiarise myself with promotion and marketing.
I do feel that WA is the right place to learn and have support from tech and the community. I miss that in my numerous previous try.

Rome wasn't built in a day ! For me, the technical aspect of setting up the website, finding the right niche(s) and writing a productive blog to entice readers and eventual buyers, is the challenge, obviously ! Well, again, we gotta learn to walk before we can run. All the best to you, Phil ! :)

Rico, Thank you for the follow. I have been a workaholic most of my adult life and a road warrior for the last 20 years. Like you, I am not going to shy away from challenges and hard work, but my main objective is to find a way to make a good income doing something that is personally satisfying and will eventually provide a sustainable income that doesn't consume my life with 80 hr. work weeks.

Regards, Art

Hey, Art ! Well stated. The task seems daunting and I don't know whether you are tech savvy - I'm not - let's hope our experience and Sales experience along with knowing how to deal with the consumer, gives us an edge. In my case, just a little success will drive me enough to continue the quest. Let's do it, Art ! All the best to us all ! :)

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Thanks for the encouraging words, Kyle ! And thank you for being so 'hands on" at all times. I'm fired up to get this show on the road with a few ideas already. How difficult is it to create one's own website as opposed to utilizing the themes provided for us on site rubix ?
Reply
Kyle Premium
It is about a hundred times more complex to build a website from scratch. I used to create websites from scratch when I first started out 15 years ago, and what took me a month to do then, literally takes me 30 seconds now with SiteRubix. Just for some perspective. :)

Hi, Rico!

It's a pleasure to meet you. Back in the eighties, I wrote for the financial industry and held a Series 7 license. It was brutal then and that was a relatively stable economic era. I can only imagine what it must be like now.

I look forward to helping you build a profitable online business. With your background, you have a lot of experience to draw upon.

I'm here for you,
Gary

Hi ! My name is Rico and I have been researching On-Line Marketing opportunities for a few weeks now. I have watched dozens of YouTube videos on the subject matter and was hoping to find an opportunity that would allow me to learn the basics WITHOUT requiring me to offer my "first born" in exchange. I hope that Wealthy Affiliate doesn't disappoint and that - at the very least - I will learn the basics about the opportunity to create an income stream through Online Marketing. Onward & Upward !
