About Rjkennedy
Joined June 2016
Retired @ 66. Widower. (wife died July 2015). I currently reside in Chicago, ILL on the northside with my daughter Danielle. My other daughters & grandchidren stay down the street. Earned my Associates degree in Applied Science - May, 2000. (...yes, I held an interest in becoming a funeral director, but that plan fell dead;..No pun intended.)

I later worked for RR Donnelley for the last 12 years where I retired. I feel now with more time on my hands, I can achieve more online. I also enjoy singing gospel songs with my brothers and another friend and also drawing.

I'm a person who's looking forward to financial growth, a large bank account and helping many others along the way as well. I have the time, energy & desire to move this thing forward with a positive attitude. I take my online marketing very seriously. (..getting too old for games!)

When not online working, I look to travel more. I also enjoy taking walks & just enjoying the outdoors, meeting people, family time, singing, drawing and hopefully, get back into my oil painting.

My long term plan is moving to Miami, FL in July 2019 (..Chicago winters are killin' me!) Hopefully, I can make enough through this program to buy a nice, secured condo in a beautiful high-rise near the ocean in Miami, Florida or Los Angles, California.

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! :)

Thank you for following me. Well, you've been with WA for a while now. I hope you're starting to see your dreams come true. I agree -- IL IS too cold. I grew up in upstate NY and lived on the panhandle of FL for several years. I must admit, I missed the 4 seasons and it was HOT. VA is a nice balance for me. I wish you much success in your WA adventure. ~Debbi

Hi Ronald,
It is so nice to meet you and your http://babydosign.com is wonderful! What a sincere and informative site it is. I know very little about loss of hearing and appreciate your site very much.

I cannot sing at all, but I so love to listen to Gospel music.

Many blessings to you,

Good evening to you Ronald, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I'm following you back. You know, I am not that far behind you for retirement. It is also imperative that I kill that old rumor about teaching old dogs new tricks... I believe as long as we keep learning, we will never grow old. Or Too old.

It is also true that you are never too old to start a legacy for your family. Wouldn't that be a great gift to give. My wife died of cancer in 2009 but I didn't. I'm still alive and so I have been remarried since 2014. I will never stop in satisfying the things on my bucket list until it is time to start another.
I look forward to working with you and helping you whenever you ask. I wish you much success and prosperity in your journey.
Ken

Thanks Ken. I see that we both went through the same thing in regards to losing our spouses. But life goes on. At the moment, re-marriage is the furthest thing from my mind!

I understand Ronald, for me it was because I am not a good cook in the kitchen. My late wife Susan was a pastry chef and I was not allowed to cook in her kitchen. Grilling outside, however, was my specialty. So I knew I had to get a wife that could cook. I have been blessed again with love so I concentrate on making my online time worthy of my presence.

I just starting to learn how to cook little thing. I have to or spend a lot of money eating out (which can get pretty expensive after a while.) My youngest daughter Danielle who stays with me, she'll be 35 tomorrow, do most of the cooking now, but she won't live with me forever. But so far, so good.

Hello Ronald and welcome to wealthy affiliate.
Since you joined you in June you will have found out that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you haven't already been doing so, can I suggest you browse some of the 200+ blogs I have published within WA.
Thank you for the follow anyway and I will follow you as well.
Remember, if you get stuck you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

Hi again Ronald. You have been here for a while so I'm not sure if you do it or not.
But its a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your day.
Robert

Hello Ronald, Hello ,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hi Ron, thanks for following me - it's nice to meet you here at WA!

I wish you to become an AWESOME online marketer (if you aren't already :) ) and live a life of your dreams!

My greatest passion is video games and I strongly believe that games can influence our lives in a very positive and beneficial way. I'm always ready and willing to discuss the topic, so feel free to contact me anytime, if you're even slightly interested.

Also, if you ever need anything, have questions to ask, thoughts to share or just want to chat – just send me a message and I will try to help as best I can.

Cheers, good luck and see you around!

Nice bio and life you have Ronald...I hail from just a bit north of Chi-town...Namely International Falls, MN (literally right on the Canadian border - we have a lake separating us!)...

I wish that you can achieve all you mention and get that place in Miami...I certainly can relate to getting out of those cold winters! I left when I was 17 and have only visited maybe 4 x in the winter since then!

Cheers and great to meet you here!

Dear rjkennedy, I know what it is to be cold. In 1986, the winter in Switzerland was the coldest in thirty years. It was minus 30. I now live in Sydney Australia where it is winter and long for home in NEW CALEDONIA where it is 30 degres. I would like to go back to NEW CALEDONIA and hope that making money online will help me build on my land a nice home for me and my family. God bless

Welcome RJ. I wish you much success here. Please don't give up on your art. I understand the cold. My husband spent 20 years in the military and our last base was in Nebraska and we were there for 29 years. Once our kids grew up and went off to college they did not move back so 15 years ago we moved back to SC because I was just tired of the cold weather. Wishing you success here.

Hey Ronald
Thanks a lot for following me!
I am returning the favor, and I want to let you know that if you ever get stuck please feel free to give us (me) a shout.
To your success!
PS. In three years time you'll make enough money to move on the Moon if you want to

Thank you BVisan, The moon is a little too far, but Miami will be perfect!
I do have one issue. Under 'create new blog', I post a blog and click 'Publish'. (..created four blogs) but when I go to my 'site mangement' under post, blog count is not there. Wonder why they are not registering?
Reply
BVisan Premium
It's a different section, blogs you post under your profile and site management. When you post a blog on WA it's going to be shown under your profile, but the ones you post on your website are going to be displayed there.
I'm sorry if I'm not explicit enough, maybe it's because the time, I just came back from work and be heading to bed soon.
I'll get back to you on this as soon as I get a chance.
Cheers!

Ronald, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Ronald.

Hey Ronald ... Thanks for connecting and the follow... I truly appreciate the invitation to be a part of your "journey online"..

Welcome to WA... I've been away from WA for awhile now, but I'm back, re-focused and absolutely looking forward to re-engaging in this absolutely amazing community.

I'm in Toronto, so I feel your pain on Chicago's winters... But I absolutely love Chicago as a city... I've had the pleasure of visiting on many occasions and have a lot of fond memories...

If you ever have any questions or if there is anything I can do to help you along with your online marketing, please don't hesitate to ask... In fact, if you'd like to learn more about how I approach this business, please read the following post when you get a moment... Between that post and my profile, you should get a pretty clear idea on my thoughts on "internet marketing" as an industry and my approach... You can always PM me here of course if you have questions or you can message me through Facebook... I always seem to be logged into my Facebook account for various reasons, so that's likely the quickest way to reach me... My contact information is on my profile... Thanks again... Bryan

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live a month ago and the one on sleep apnea has been up for almost four months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

I'm so excited about this community where people are so friendly, supported and ready to show the way.

I've lost good things many years ago but I thank God who gives me Opportunity to regain what I've lost.

You will not believe that I have registered with this community since 2005 but I do not participate I just forgot about it.

Yesterday a friend of mine forwarded the link to me and I registered, did you know the important of this group I want to upgrade and the system said that you have been registered long time they sent mine information to me and I became premium member.

I have learned my lesson so I wanted to be connected and stand firm.

Anyway thanks I will contact you if I need help.

All The Best

Hello RJ. Welcome to WA. You have definitely come to the right place to build a vehicle that will lead to the kind of success that would allow you to move to Miami, FL. Be careful down there at South Beach. (smile). Thanks for the follow. Best of luck to you.

Thank you RJ. I see you are rather new to this also. I am 70 years old and have always like the computer. I do not seem to have a problem learning how to function in any area. I built my own website once and kept it fresh and active for five years. Then I could no longer get the products and so I took it down. Since I raised children most of my adult life, I must work and I think this could possibly be an answer. What made you choose Wealthy Affiliate, if you don't mind my asking!
