How awesome is it all for you. Stephanie I used to work as a computer operator in the military and you brought back memories for me. I worked an IBM 360 and 370 and ours was located in movable mobile trailers so that we could move out to the field quickly. The punch cards, magnetic tapes, card reader and pin feed holed continuous paper, we are a long way from those days. Congratulations to you for your successes at WA. Thank you for the follow.

Hi! Stephanie

Thank you for the follow I am following you.

I read you profile and it is very impressive. Surely you have seen how computer world has changed.

I can say you must have been way ahead of your time but organizations were satisfied with what you did as a programmer.

I do remember those punched cards, Magnetic Tapes, Cooling fans! . There were no computer screens or hard drives.

Those were the days when the world was young!.

I wish you all the best as you continue to build your business.

Regards

Thank you for the follow - I have reciprocated
I can relate to many things in your profile.
As an Australian living in Sydney, I was born before the time of computers - mobile phones etc. I also worked with Unilever & well remember the huge volumes of punch cards .My first company computer was a twin floppy Wang! No internet the telex was our communication to the head office in the UK.

Congratulations on your milestones.
Hopefully I will progress a little faster here @ WA

Hello Stephanie ... thank you for the follow. Yikes ... I'm surprised you got selected for the SAC without completing the OEC training. That's going to be a lot of pressure to keep up.

SAC assumes you already know how to set up a website and have experience with writing and posting content to it ... lots of it. There will be no time to proceed as you described in your blog, "The Thrill of the First Commission". By the way ... how did you do that without a website?

What an interesting background. Cobol on punched cards. I took a class in Fortran during my junior year of college and the input data was prepared on punched cards, an IBM 026 machine as I recall. That was a long time ago, way before PCs.

I wish you the best on your WA journey.

Hi Dennis, thanks for the follow, it's so nice to connect here! For my first commission, I skipped ahead in the training, and invited some friends and family members! It worked! LOL

Hey thanks for the follow Stephanie - I love your story! I grew up when we played outdoors too and TV was black and white. And my career has been in IT - a little younger than you in that I grew my career with the first PC from around 1985 - dual boot it was too with 5 1/4 inch floppy disks. Haha!

Everything you wrote about your past is also what I experienced in my youth. That was in Massachusetts. When my family moved to the L.A. area, that all stopped. There were no running streams, or ponds to play hockey on. Fishing? How about going to the mountains for that?

Hello Stephanie,

Quite the bio, very interesting, I grew up with punch cards and tape drives too.

I like you do not miss the punch cards, such a waste of paper product and constant mechanical issues. Good riddance.

On a good note, I will have to check out the diamond mine, sounds like it could be an interesting trip.

Good luck in your ventures.

Hi, Stephanie (or should I call you Steph?),

Thanks for following me and joining my network. I've returned the compliment and followed you back.

I love your Bio. We are of similar age. My childhood in the sixties (I don't remember much of the 50s) was a wonderful time. I have many fond memories. Like you, I played outside. By the time I was 12, I'd collected most of my life's injuries, but I survived! I'd fallen out of numerous trees. I bounced well! Great adventures. My parents never worried too much, so long as I was home before dark!

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. WA is a great community. There is so much to learn. I am here most days. I learn something new every day.

I've been a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate for two years, and I don't regret one day!

Keep moving ahead. However your day may be, take a little step forward. Some days you'll make significant strikes, other days you will not, but do something every day, however small in building your business.

You will read many stories of WA members succeeding with their online goals. Some have achieved this in a few months; for others, it has taken a couple of years. The common trait for those that have reached their goals is taking action. Everyone who has succeeded has taken small steps every day. Do something, however tiny, every day, and you will reach your goal.

Pace yourself and enjoy your journey. Remember, little steps are better than no steps!

Best wishes,
Paul.
Be Happy!

Hi Paul! Either one is great thanks :) Just don't call me late for dinner! LOL
I read your bio, and I enjoyed it. Would you believe I got an A.S. degree in Computers, at a time when the mainframe used tape drives for backups, and it had to be cold in there??!! LOL
Yes, I used punched cards and COBOL for programming! I was into computers before Al Gore created the internet!! LOL
But still, yes, just like you, I've been scammed so many times over the years, wanting to create an online income stream.
That's one reason I'm so happy to be here, in this amazing learning community, with so many others who feel the same :)
Thank you for your words of wisdom, I am doing something every day here. I'm very committed to making this work and supporting my retirement. I'm also looking at the possibilities of going ex-pat here in the US. Who knows? We may meet on some sandy shore someday somewhere in real life?! LOL

I learnt to program in COBOL. Such a structured language. I use a dialect of BASIC now, and it is very loose and unstructured!

This might seem strange to you but I was born in 1950, and I remember electric lines, just 2 wires running up the wall. Big box TV and radio. Will Roger's, The last of the Mohegan, Gene Autrey. I could go on but you probably know what I mean. I also grew up in the woods in Maryland, now live in the woods in Pennsylvania and still would not have it any other way.
Nice to meet you and I am following you.
Thanks Wayne

Hello Stephanie And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

I was born and raised in the countryside as well.
Work for a good many years in it as well all over Sctland.
Loved the mountains rivers and lochs (lakes).

Stories for another day though.

Since you joined you will perhaps come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve and there is always something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 480+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message 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.
Robert

Have a great Wednesday.

Welcome to WA. It’s participation and persistence to get there and also takes a lot of creative thought to process...
Yes, thank you for following. And I am hungry to get started.
I am finding so much information for goals to success. This is surely a great opportunity with just what I need to develop independence and dreams.
Yes, www is a big world brought together with WA...
I’m just following my heart... if you’re into books, this will work out. Giving it time to sink in.

Truly grateful, thanks for the launch 🚀

Hi Stephanie. I just read you very well written and interesting profile. I am also following you

I also grew up in a very different time. Born in 1934 when there were not even refrigerators, except for the well to do.

People that lived out in the sticks got their ice from street wagon sellers who got their ice out of the frozen lakes that froze during winter time.

Glad to have you onboard. WA is a great family that will help you learn everything you need to know about making money online.

A big welcome from me.

Pastor Derry

P.S. I love to fish but don' get to do it very often.

Hi Derry! Thanks for following me back, I appreciate it!
Yes, there's a reason the refrigerators are called "ice boxes"! Not everyone knows this!! Especially the young whippersnappers!
Thanks for the welcome also! It does feel like being in a family already! What a joy!
All the best,
Stephanie

Hi Stephanie! Welcome to WA and to Premium! I enjoyed reading your bio. Sounds familiar! I grew up playing outdoors too and had fun studying bugs, butterflies, and anything moving! :) Anyhow, I'm glad you found this great place! If I can ever be of help, send me a private message (PM).

Hello, Stephanie and thanks for following us. We follow you back.
We were born the same decade as you and you reminded us of all those good things we remember. Like playing outside and drinking hose water!!!
Your dad was a direct marketer for sure! We used to have the Fuller Brush man come over and mom would make him coffee and he would stay and chat. So cute that your parents met that way.
Well, here we are in the digital now and although we have lost things, we have gained an enormous opportunity to create an online business with the best training and community available.
We wish you every success!

Hello Stephanie and thank you for the follow which I have reciprocated. I retired 4 years ago and just couldn't see myself sitting on the front porch, crochet needles and yarn in hand, making mittens for the grandkids. I wish I had, but God knew when the right time was for me. I wish you nothing but success and meeting your goals.
Yay Us!! 🌟

Hope you find WA as helpful as I have in my short journey. Ii’s strange to work/learn with such a helpful group of people who encourage and boast when I am down and share the achievements.

Best wish for happy retirement and success on WA journey.

What are your "money" goals?
Last Update: March 21, 2019

In order to achieve any level of success, you need to have a starting point. This starting point is having a "goal".

Success is not all about money and it shouldn't be your only motivation, but for many of us, the money part does matter a little bit (or a lot). :) And because of this, I want you to take a few minutes and really come up with some tangible "money" goals.

Please make sure you answer ALL 3 of these goals within this post and feel free to elaborate on these answers within your comment below.

QUESTION #1: How much money would you be happy earning?

QUESTION #2: How much would you be ecstatic earning?

QUESTION #3: And how much TIME are you willing to invest to achieve these goals?

Notice the last question? That is there for a reason. Most of us are in such a rush to become rich that we end up like the hare, instead of the turtle. Please refrain from saying you want to be successful within a week or a month, because if you do this, I can honestly say you are setting yourself up for failure from the get go.

Be realistic, but at the same time shoot for the stars. If you come up short from BIG goals, you have still reached greatness.

I look forward to hearing everyones feedback and please do take time to immerse yourself within the goals and conversations within this thread.

To your success!

Hi there! Thank you for asking about my goals! I upgraded my expectations for 2019, after using the training platform for a bit....
I am going to Vegas this year, and I am taking five people with me!
So excited to see this year unfold!
All the best,
Stephanie

Welcome to WA Premium!

Glad that you landed here. It doesn’t matter how. It does matter that you check this place out thoroughly to see the power you have available here to help you create an online money makin* presence.

If you need to make money fast, this is not the place to do it. However, if you want to create your online money makin* machine that will provide you with a recurring passive income over time, then you are at the right place.

You must be prepared to invest your time and effort learning the skills and putting them to action. Just follow the training every day. When you get stuck, ask for help. That’s what I’ve been doing and it works!

Within a few days I was able to build a basic website using keywords, get it indexed by Google. Shortly after I added several posts and pages and got them ranked on the first page on the major search engines. Is achieving results like this something that excites you?

Be patient. Take the time to build a strong foundation rather than rushing through. In the weeks and months ahead you’ll be glad you did.

I wish you much success with your training. Imagine and feel the success awaiting you, and success will be yours!

Cheers!

Edwin
