About Rolland
Joined May 2013
Hi Rolland here, I live Washington state.with my wife Anna. I have three daughters and two stepsons.

We love the great northwest.for hiking, driving the 58 chevy up the Columbia river gorge, all the great camping and lakes.

We also love our Nine-year-old boxer, Dante.

I have been in the meat industry for over 30 years now. I believe that would qualify me an expert it that field.

My passion is smoking Meat. So here is where I am setting up a website. Backyardsmokedmeats.com

Hello Rolland And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep referring to the training.
If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 430+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me PM anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.

Hi Roland,
Thank You for your support, I too have been making meat and never took a deer in for processing once and j love smoking meet too, I. am smoking venison summer sausage with cheddar jack cheese in it, you can get a 2 pound bag of 1/4 " squares on eBay for about $ 18 a bag, it's high temp 400 degree melt so it doesn't melt. Every 1/8" slice has 3-5 pieces of cheese!
I prefer the 30 mm. callogen casing which is really thin and edible.. don't use hickory but mix pecan and Apple chips for the best flavor. I Would be happy to share ideas with you!

JudyMazzola Premium
I am a newbie also. Tonight I definitely feel lost! I have no idea what my niche is at this time. I just want something for a grand mother with no talent other than being a mom and grandma! I have a business degree that was destroyed after a stroke at the age of 52. I want something that makes money of course, but is fun so I would enjoy giving as much of my time as needed!!!
I am happy to see so many of you getting where you are! It gives me hope! Good luck to all and may God continue to bless you in your journey!
eosegueraf Premium

I am following you. You have come to a great site Wealthy Affiliates is a wonderful place!!! You have to work hard and follow their training to succeed.

I invite you to join my team and help me sell CBD (medical marinara) on line. I believe it is a wonderful health supplement that will help many people have a more meaningful life. The commissions are good and it is multilevel. That means you can make commissions off those who join your team.

I just joined about two weeks ago and really have had only four sales. You can join for free, but for $49.00 per year they will create and maintain a web site such as the one you can click on below. The commission rate starts at 20% and you can earn commissions those that join your team. They have a Facebook page and an affiliate web site. I have a personal page and a business web page where I post positive quotes. Truly Good Life

Visit CBDbiocare.com/raybrannum/
raybrannum.com Where you can learn all about me.
rolland Premium
Hi Ray,
I feel that CBD is going to be a great game changer in the alternative healthcare for many baby boomers. We have used it for our mother inlaws anxiety as well as cream ointment for pain and have found pet-friendly products that seem to work on our 9 year old boxer.

I have looked over CBDbiocares site and will let you know if we be come an affiliate.

raybrannum Premium
I am brand new with CBDbiocare.com/raybrannum/ but I am already getting second orders. The folks that run the company remind me of WA. They appear to be straight up. The commission is 20% and you make commissions off your team. I am trying to start a team. Explore the affiliate joining options, which are from free to a large sample package. I went with the second option of the web site, but if I had it to do over again I would take the option that included business cards and samples.

WA and Facebook is the perfect place to build a team. And you are right this product is going to explode.

My phone is 256 572 1565 and email rdb@mindspring.com and web site raybrannum.com

Best community online to help you grow in your information highway
quest and let me tell I have searched, I have been online since
2003 put my first website with text pad and html ...

been working for the man to long.

People here are real deal, they will help when you ask the questions ....

In this community if you want to learn you will earn ...

I am really happy to have found this community to help me grow ...

dream it is yours to take ... no one else will do it for you ...

" Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed
by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did.

Thank you for the follow.
Pplease keep me posted on your site. I'm an inventor of sorts. I built a smoker from an old upright freezer. I equipped it with a convection fan with heater from an old convection microwave then made a boiler to add moisture and a stainless-steel smoker that works off an aquarium air pump. The smoker will burn for 7 hours when filled with wood chips. The smoke is a lot like a "Smoke Daddy". All controlled by a control board I converted from a convection oven. I can set the temp. and for get it. Last time I used it to smoke two very large pork Shoulder roast. I cooked them low and slow for 26 hours at 190 degrees. It was the best to come out of this smoker yet.
Well I rambled on long enough.
If we can help out with an questions please ask.
Wishing you Much Success.
