About Samthepieman
Joined May 2017
I'm 80 years old (young) and have just gone through a devastating financial mess that has left this old guy and a family with very little. Too many scams, especially government grants and trying with the wrong team just doesn't work. I lost $20,000 in one fell swoop in the last two months and it has left me in big time trouble. Do you have anything that might suit me. I'm a retired business man who had wonderful success in the restaurant business for over 30 years and after selling out and going through the 2008 stock market I'm just hanging on. I've tried all of the scam's and I'm done. You're my last try. Don't know what you can do to give me some one on one personal help but I would sure appreciate it. Although I'm 80 I'm alert, at least today, tomorrow I guess you never know. Let me know what there might be for me and I'll respond immediately. I was in the Restaurant business for 25 years associated with a well know California based "Pie" company and restaurant. Perhaps some of you are familiar with Marie Callender Pies, well I had about 12 units scattered from California to Utah, Idaho, New Mexico, Washington and California. I worked very hard, long hours and you probably know the rest. I sold them in 1984 and went on a mission for the Church I belong to. That assignment was in Oregon for 3 years followed by another one for 4 years to Nauvoo, Illinois. Wonderful experience. When I returned home I found out that those who were in my circle of friends were all trading stocks and Options. I had done some of that as well and so I began. As you know 2008 came and went and when it left it took my investments with it. What a deal that was. I have tried doing programs on line only to find that most of the offerings were "bogus". I lost a bunch. All of this time I'm getting older and not employable. I did keep however a small business that my web site "piecutters.com" represents and that my son, Sam Jr. operates from Palm Springs, California. Unfortunately it does support his family and his parents as well. So here we two older and grayer folks are, short of $ and needing to improve the small business he runs so that it can take care of all of us. Now you know the reason that I've signed up with you. I hope I can understand and comprehend the internet language to be successful like you all are. My fingers are crossed along with my eyes and I'm going to give it the old 80 year try. Any help from your large family would be welcome. Thank you! Sam

I still don't know how to transfer my existing web page to WA. I get confused with the lingo. Can anybody hold my hand?

Well, hand holding is hard to do remotely. Perhaps this tutorial. After rereading this one is probably more appropriate for you.

Hi Sam - Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium. You are in the right place to work towards building yourself a successful online business. The best way you can do that is to follow the training step by step. Don't get distracted with anything else. Start with, and complete, the Certification course. If you want to move on to Bootcamp training that's great, but complete the Certification course first.

I wish you great success, which you can achieve!

Sam, I thought I was reading my own profile. We're the same age and suffering from the same, dang illness:)

I can help! Firstly, You're glass appears to be half empty. I know you could fill it with tears but, then you would have a full glass of teary water, yuck! The situation would still be here.

If you were in the restaurant business for 30 years I'm sure there were times that you thought, where's all the help, I've got a big party coming in and I don't have the help to help them. That too past and this too Shell pass.

Ok, I'm through preaching, that was the past and you have to let it go and live from today forward. We're only promised today. I'm learning to live a tick of the clock at a time. Some days it gets a little testy. If something can be done, then I do it and move on.

We've already lived longer than we ever thought we would. You look healthy, in you picture. If you are like me, i could miss a few meals for my waist line.

But where to you go with Wealthy Affiliate. I don't know what your experience with computing and the Internet is but it don't matter.
There's more to learn here than you and I will live to consume.

I would repeat what Kyle and probably many others here have already said. To get started in the training, you click the green button labeled "Get Started Here" in the upper left-hand menu.
follow the instructions step by step and don't look up until you have a website ranked with Google, Then, look up and take a big breath and keep on keeping on. It will work but we have to work it. And there's that four lettered word.... work. We are now students with not knowledge of what we're doing. But, If we have a big enough WHY (why am I doing this?) we will come out on the other end with some success. How much? who knows. F.Y.I. Don't expect or wait for someone to do this for you. Remember,
"If it Is To Be, It is Up To Me."

I've taught this for 50+ years and I know it works. I'm living proof.
My niche, website is "Self-Help Coach". I've just given you a free lesson.... Now, I'm going to practice what I teach.

I wish you as much success as you are willing to work for.

Thank you for the nice note. For some reason 80 doesn't feel like the 80's of yesterday. They all seemed so old, and in some ways they were. I asked the question about an existing web site. I've had one for about 20 years and am wondering if I can start using it rather than putting together a new one. My site is piecutters.com. It also shows up under the Nupro Company. Take a look and let me know.

Thanks a bunch

Sam

Sam, here is a name of a WA friend of mine. She can help you with your site, to see if you can transfer it or not. Anyway, she is very knowledgeable.

Tell here Luther Wood referred her. I will also notify her that you will be contacting her.

Good luck.

P.S. I looked at your site. It seems to me, it has a lot of potential to be monetized to make some money.

Hey Sam,
Kyle again. I see you are making progress and your account is completely set up. You are doing great so far. Keep it up. And remember if you need help just ask.

I'll also be stopping by from time to time just to see how things are coming along.

Welcome Sam!
This is Kyle. I am glad you made it. Wealthy Affiliate is awesome and you will like it. If you are ready to roll you can get started in the training if you click the green button labeled "Get Started Here" in the upper left-hand menu.

Everything is laid out simple, but inevitably things are going to get confusing for you at some point in the training. So if you ever need help don't hesitate to message me. I was in your shoes not too long ago and would be happy to help.
