Hi,
My name is Sam Cordero (my friends call me SamMi C). I'm a retired Chicagoan, currently residing in Japan with my wife. I still see myself as an IM newbie as I've attempted several programs but always come to the same stalemate -- What the "H" am I supposed to do next.

I really would love to show my wife that "Yes" I can make some extra money (a few Mil hopefully :)) with my online business... and NOT just keep handing money over to others.

My background is in business - self-employed most my adult life. I'm used to putting in whatever number of hours it takes to make my businesses succeed but the online business has yet to bear fruit for all the hours & money I've spent.

I look forward to getting to know you all (or at least as many as possible).

Best regards,

SamMi C

Hello SamMiCor

Congratulations on going Premium.

I just wanted to say that while there is much value to be had here at Wealthy Affiliate, it can sometimes seem very overwhelming, with everything that has to be done.

My advice from experience is to focus totally on one of the training directions, the green certification OR the Bootcamp, and to stick with that until you have finished it.

Wishing you every success with your business.

Thanks, Roy. I really appreciate that. I am having a bit of an issue, WordPress is asking for an email or UN & PW and won't let me log in. I know that info is in the system but don't know how to access it. Can you help?

Hello Sami C! You and I have a lot in common! I was born and raised a Chicagoan except for the time I lived in Japan for a year. Without a doubt the best time of my life was teaching English out of an apartment near the Shibuya District in Tokyo. Nothing but great memories of the Japanese and their culture. So my hats off to you SamiC, I wish you the best and hope you are enjoying life in Japan!

Lets be friends? I want to know what you're doing over there and why you choose to live out your retirement in such a beautiful place. Its something I've considered too since I've always wanted to go back.

All the best,

Ronbo

Hey Ronbo. Thanx for the follow and absolutely, let stay in touch. I'm happy to know you enjoyed your stay in Japan. I made a lot of trips to Shibuya in my younger days. This is my 3rd stay here. The first was 6 1/2 years with the AF and for almost 2 years after my separation. The second was due to my wife's mother being diagnosed with cancer (that was for 10 years), and then this time since 2016.

Our two sons both live in Japan and we have 3 grandkids here. So as beautiful as our house and Florida were, the decision was made to return to Japan. I have an English & Spanish language school. We have a house - I don't care at all for apartments in Japan, really tight living... and yes they still hang their laundry out to dry on the balcony :).

But of course. I wouldn't be here if I didn't like Japan, the people...and love the food. I also enjoy the view we have of the mountains. In particular, the view we have of a ski resort, Mt. Zao (check it out online). The city where I live is called Yamagata - famous for rice, fruit, and most of all its "ramen".

A tit-bit lengthy... Hope I didn't bore you.

Rooting for your success,

SamMi C

Definitely will keep in touch, SamiC, and no I wasn't bored at all! I checked out Mt Zao - the "snow monsters" look amazing! The images I've seen...wow! I envy you!

Noticed you started here recently as well. Hows that going for you? Did you find your niche yet? If so, have you found a domain name? I've been going through the Training Course, currently on Course 1 Lesson 4. I've known my niche before starting here but I didn't know what to do next. I bought a domain name yesterday and currently setting up the websites "theme" in Site Manager. So yah, I've made some progress and feeling pretty good!

All the best to you and your family.

Cheers,
Ronbo

Yeah, those snow monsters are really a sight. I use to go to Zao "a lot" back in the 80's & 90's and had the opportunity to see them close-up. I've been up to Zao this time but haven't gone skiing People here, unlike in the US, think that once you get old - like me- you shouldn't do those things...I know, weird.

I do have a niche, actually 3 + a product (or idea) I plan on promoting as a vendor... hopefully launching next month. I'm more in the (what they say are saturated) niches of Health, Wealth & Romance (HWR). I have a makeshift site with Wix (I'm writing my HTML for my real site as I type this message. Check it out if you get a chance "SamMiCor".

My own product is "IMerArticles" (that's Internet Market'er'). I've found that a lot of people seem to have a difficult time producing good quality 'written' material - so I'm going to give it a shot. I know there are lots of article writing services out there but the cost is prohibitive for many.

I already have over 200 articles written for the relationship niche that I will start making available. I'm also putting together an ebook for my HWR niche.

I too have been setting up my WA site and going through the course. maybe we can chat sometime... Are you on Skype (SamMi1076)?

I think WA is an excellent program put together very well by Carson & Kyle... Just gotta stay the path and not get too ahead of ourselves if we are to make the best of it and have success with it. I won't be able to go premium yet cause I have too much money already tied up and committed elsewhere. I will though, first chance.

Hang in there and keep working at it ...

がんばってください。

Hello Sammi! Thank you for following me. Wow, living in Japan... My husband and I visited Japan for a wedding about 17 years ago. It was a beautiful place to visit. We had so much fun traveling north and south of Japan.

Like any business as you know be consistent and stay on top of it. Having a mentor is a plus. There are many people here who have been very successful at WA that you can ask many questions. The support system is wonderful.

Best wishes in accomplish your goals here at WA.

Yeah...nice and cold and lots of snow where I live, not to mention a beautiful ski resort "Zao", which is a huge volcanic mountain starting to burp. I love it but not sure how long I'll be here. Came to spend time with my sons and grandkids before I get that special delivery message requesting my involuntary departure.

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! :)

Hi Sammi!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! I'm Edward from MasterMyFinance. You signed up through my site so I thought I'll introduce myself. I created my website in mid 2015 and have been working on it using my spare time after work (I'm still holding a full time day job). I'm currently making a little more than $1,000/mth from it, plus a couple hundred dollars more from 2 other niche sites.

I plan to quit day job and focus work online full time when I hit $3,000/mth, and I'm on track for it. As long as you're committed to make this work, you'll succeed online.

To get started, you should upload a picture and write a short description of yourself here: http://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/home/my_profile. Treat it as a social website and make friends, because there are a lot of awesome people in this community!

You'll learn a lot here, but for now just focus on the Online Entrepreneur Certification training. Follow the training one step at a time and you'll have your own website up and running in no time.

Now that you are in a legitimate online business community, it's time to stop chasing the rainbows, settle down and learn to make money online the proper way. Talk to you soon!

Thanx Edward. Your support means a lot to me. I'm currently working on other programs (which seem to be going nowhere) so I will be giving WA my full commitment. Hope to be able to stay in touch with you and not just get lost in the shuffle as so often is the case with other programs.

So you know, I currently spend most of my day and often late at night working other programs I'm currently involved in...I will now allot most of my time to WA. Hopefully eventually ALL of my time.
