About RockyT
Joined March 2015
As you can see by the pictures, I have a passion for horses. I grew up in the city and was not able to have a horse. I had friends who had horses and began to ride with them, but still no horse of my own. When I was young, I asked my father for a horse for Christmas. When Christmas came, he told me there was a horse for me in the garage. I was stoked and ran out to the garage just to find out that was a set of saw horses. I was bummed, but the interest and passion for horses didn't die there. At the age of 60 I bought a small ranch in Montana and bought my first horse. Better late never. Now I have 5 and enjoy training, riding, and teaching my grandkids how to train and ride. It's quite enjoyable. My father was raised on a dairy farm, so maybe it's in the genes to have a ranch and to love being on it and doing what needs to be done to make it an enjoyable place to live.
I have been involved in a home repair business that I started 25 years ago. Unfortunately I never set aside anything for retirement. I won't be able to do what I do now, forever, so I need to do something and this might be the answer.

"M" I am so sorry that I have not responded. Sometimes you get so overwhelmed with what is going on that things get overlooked. I just took a look at your web site and read your article "Diary of a Pony Club". Great article and yes it is a lot of work to manage and schedule things with other folks. Everybody's time is important. I hope everything is going well with you and your endeavors with your web site. Let's stay in touch. I'm still trying to fill all of my pages with content. It's getting there. If you could browse my site and take a look, I would appreciate some comment from a different perspective. Thanks so much. Rocky snafflescurbsntack.com

Hi RockyT
Horses and Montana are both in my history. Grew up pretty much on the back of horses in Canada. That is where my childhood and family raised, trained and showed professionally and me experienced horses for fun mostly. As a kid I thought my parents found the horses almost more important than us kids cause they were so much work. But I don't regret them at all when I look back.. Perhaps you will chose a related niche for your affiliate marketing. Stick with the lessons here and you will do well. Lots of good people available to assist whenever you have questions. Cheers and make it a great journey.
PS The Montana connection for me is lots of US family members and trips to Kalispbell and Glacier National Park, and The Hungry Horse gift shop was my x's grand father the wood carver. Pretty state around the Rockies

This a great state to live in. I grew up in western Washington. Now it's to busy, to crowded and to much traffic. Glad to be in Big Sky Country. I have a related niche, SnafflescurbsNtack.com Check it out. Still trying to finish it. I want to do affiliate marketing. Thanks for the response. Rocky

Hi Rocky:

Great profile message. When I was young I begged for months for a guitar for Christmas.

The presents were out a week before and one was triangular shaped. I couldn't wait for m own guitar...... You know of course, the rest of the story. I had to hold back tears Christmas morning as I opened a triangular box of army men......

Anyway..... Go for your passion!

Hey Rocky, just checking to see how things are going! Just wanted to pop by as I noticed that you had set-up your profile here at WA and say hi and offer my help if there is any confusion.

Simply drop me a reply if you do need a hand with anything. :)

Hey Rocky and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. I joined Wealthy Affiliate back in 2009, over 5 years ago. I was looking to learn how to supplement my income through Internet Marketing and what I've found was so much more.

By 2010, I was working full-time from home. These days, ALL of my income comes from my ventures online. In fact, my wife just recently quit her job to start her own business as well. Internet Marketing and Wealthy Affiliate have provided us with amazing opportunities (we've bought a house, get to travel the world, and best of all, no longer spend time "going to work") and I'm incredibly thankful to the training, tools, and support here that made it all possible. :)

I'd love for you to see the same level of success. So, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

To get started, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself. If there's anything I can do for you Rocky, just let me know!

Cheers!

Steve

PS. Hit the reply button and say hi so I know you made it here OK!

Hey Steve. This is all new to me. I was reading a review of yours and saw that you were endorsing WA. I thought that I would give it a try. I am in my 60's and have no retirement set up, so I have to do something. I currently have a home repair business, but I won't be able to that forever, so this might be just the ticket. I will give it a shot and see where it might leads.
This might take some time and I can use all the help I can get. Is there a mentor that is assigned to each individual or how does that work. I will follow the steps and see how the meal turns out. Thanks for following up. Look forward to talking to you again.

Rocky

There isn't an official mentor program in here, but the community is absolutely fantastic. They're the most helpful bunch you'll ever find online. Questions can get answered through a number of resources and you have a lot of knowledgeable people to pull info from. Take a look around and see what you think!
