Hello all, It's great to be here with you! I'm Steve. I have been an entrepreneur for most of my life. It's finally time for me to dive into something new. Something that doesn't require business partners, investors and huge capital investments up front. Something I can do on my time whether that be at home or while I am traveling.

I currently own a brewery in Norway and the states as well coffee company in Norway.

I see you love to cook!! I'm a classically trained chef. I am a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu!

It's awesome to meet you here. I would love to check out your site!

Cooking niche?
Laurel0887 Premium
Absolutely! Some of it comes from a book I've submitted and am waiting to see if it gets published.

"The Salt Assault " is the domain.............info on herbs/spices (2 parts), FDA report on salt (2 parts), Grocery store tactics,etc. There will be more.........recipes, some family, some tweaked, some original.............

Cordon Bleu? WOW!

I 'm only classically trained in the kitchens, and at the hands of Antonia Villa of Naples, Italy...my grandmother! A woman who never took NO for an answer, and worked running my Grandfather's businesses, along with my Dad, until she was 94!

But I get by............

Best wishes for success with WA!

And since you have been an entrepreneur for most of your life, check out my first website and tell me what you think, my daughter helped me with it:

Thanks for adding me to your follow list, I added you as well. I think Norway would be fascinating to live there especially since I live in Colorado and enjoy the winter sports like cross country skiing, snowshoe run racing, and snowboarding. Norway did awesome in the Olympics! Have a good one.

Hi Steve,

Man wouldn't I get along with you. European beers and Australia's James Boag are my favourite beers. I love the real Stella Artois from Belgium, NOT UK stuff, and the original Carlsberg.

Steve, thank you for following me and I wish you the best in all aspects of life.

Great meeting you and cheers,

StevenRinker Premium

Hi Steven,

I am glad we met online via WA University Community – the right place to fulfill a dream succeeding in e-marketing, which can comfortably boast its unparalleled training and warm community support if its kind in the world.

To learn deeper each other, welcome to view my profile/bio inside WA as well as the posts inside the websites listed at the right lower corner of my WA profile page.

To succeed, I have been told by WA founders, ambassadors, and supporting members with helping souls with the following in mind and in action:
1. start 5-level Certification Courses.
2. Move on to 7-phases Affiliate Bootcamp Training after Certification Courses.
3. Ask questions as needed and seek any help and support, which are readily available from WA unique supporting souls and helping hands from its members, as evidenced along the path of training; you will not be disappointed.
4. Be consistent and persevering no matter what and will be richly rewarded.

My stay with WA since 9/2018 has confirmed the above is totally true.

All the best to your success to come,

Trujunco Premium
Thank you...for liking my comment (Swangirl post) and for the follow on my profile page...this means a lot to me.

By the look of your experience you are leading a wonderful
success here and in your other interests. This newest venture "online marketing" has great potential for you > I am sure.

Having a diverse interest in culture and culinary art, I've taken to watching: "New Scandinavian cooking" and enjoy the Nordic traditions as found throughout Norway.

I wish you great success in all that you aspire to, and I will return again to read some of your posts. So until then ...Cheers!

Respectfully, David
StevenRinker Premium
Hi David,

You would seriously love Norway. I also have a home in St. Paul Minnesota. Mixing my Nordic heritage and being able to travel between the two is nice.

Oh, I trained and graduated as a chef at Le Cordon Bleu. We have something in common!

Hope all is well and let's stay in touch.

Trujunco Premium
Remarkable and more in common than you think as I have my mother, three sisters, two brothers all in Mpls/St.paul
My own family and I live in Park Rapids about 200 (give or take a few) Miles...does this makes us WA cousins? LOL.
Please tell me your brewery is located near or I'll travel to Norway if needed...
Thanks for responding back and great looking out toward you,Steve
StevenRinker Premium
The name of our Brewery is Oosterrijsen Brewing Company. We will be working with another brewery here in the twin cities.

wish you were closer to St. Paul. It would be awesome to have a weekly mastermind group.

Either way. YES! We are WA cousins!

Hi Steve

Thanks so much for the follow, I'm following you back too :)

If you need some inspiration for your WA journey, feel free to check out my recent post:
I'm sure you'll agree, there's some awesome tools on here for Wealthy Affiliate members.

I use Jaaxy for all of my Keyword research and SiteContent to draft all of my posts for my website. Here's a little trick that will show you how beautifully these tools integrate and also SAVE you time:
Canva is also a great tool that's quite popular with other WA members, to design stylish graphics, like headers etc, for their websites.
Wishing you every success and feel free to drop me a line anytime!

Hi Steve, with your background you must have a lot of advice and great information, I have been to Norway, beautiful, The fjords, and Christensen while in the Navy. At the fjords I witnessed 5 rainbows at one time, and while in Christensen met with some Olympic track and field team also same year in 1976-'77 the first playmate from the same city. Just a beautiful country. Thanks for the follow.

Hi Reese!

The scenery is epic! I live in Risor Norway when I am there and I have a home in St. Paul Minnesota. I love both places equally.

I have spent my Fair share of time in Kristiansen as well. Great town!

Thanks for being my friend!
CarolMeador Premium
Hi, Steve. Thanks for following me. Followed you back. I enjoyed reading your profile. Do you own any of the breweries in North Carolina? Best wishes on your WA journey toward success. Don't hesitate to ask the community for assistance if you get stuck. I see that you are breezing through your certification course. Carol
StevenRinker Premium
Hi Carol!

I owned a brewery in Minnesota which I sold. I then moved to Norway and open a brewery there: Oosterrijsen Brewing Company. I am now bringing the brand back to the states! In the meantime I wanted to do something for me. So I joined WA, best thing ever! Thanks for reaching out :)
CarolMeador Premium
You're probably aware that NC is bristling with new breweries. I think I read that there are 30 of them in the Asheville area.
StevenRinker Premium
I have read that they are doing quite well there. I love that area! Great place for a brewery! Do you ever go to any of them? Do you have a favorite?
CarolMeador Premium
Yes, western NC has a ton of them, but I've been to a brewpub in Durham called Clouds. They have their own brew, but they have a "Beer Wall" , where you can sample beers from small breweries from all over.

I don't like beer, so I just taste them when I'm with a friend who does. We also went to Jack in the Wood in Asheville. They sell their own brew, but have others from the area on tap as well.

Several of them have tours of their breweries, which I think would be interesting. The area I live in has a history of moonshiners, some who still exist. It is a folk craft that is dying out, but some people are keeping the craft alive. We have a legal distillery here in Maggie Valley...they make whiskey, but it's not really "shine" if it's legal!

StevenRinker Premium
I really need to get out there! I'm starting a blog about beer. Surprise! But it will actually be more of a blog about brewing. I will blog about beer, coffee, distilled spirits, etc. Nothing will really be off limits.

Maybe in my travels I could visit NC and review a brewery, distillery or even find a moonshiner! That would be so awesome! Better do my research!

All this is very new to me but I'm having a lot of fun here at WA.

Fun chatting!
CarolMeador Premium
Let me know when you're heading this way. Maybe we could meet for coffee somewhere. (since I don't like beer.)

While you're doing your research, Google Popcorn Sutton. He was a moonshiner from Maggie Valley who is supposedly dead, but a lot of people don't think so.

StevenRinker Premium
Yes and that is very interesting! I will!
CarolMeador Premium
As I was writing to you last night, I felt a post coming on! Stay tuned. Carol
StevenRinker Premium
@CarolMeador Keep me posted!
CarolMeador Premium
Will let you know when I post it. Hopefully tomorrow.

Hi Steven
Thanks for the follow.
May I congratulate you on your businesses - I expect everyone is envious that you own a brewery but I reckon it's quite hard work. (And let's face it, a brewery in the States - it can't be real beer! :-))
I really enjoy my coffee so am more interested in that nowadays.
I have a few businesses myself too - some rental property, a wedding car and luxury car hire.
Many thanks for your English and may I wish us both success in WA.
StevenRinker Premium
Ha! The brewery in the states will make the same ber we do in Norway! But I totally understand your point. Though Craft beer has come along way here in the states :-)
Lazyblogger Premium
Thank you for the follow Steve, wish you great success here at Wealthy Affiliate as you build your website, and fulfill all your goals.

Remember Staying focus and being consistent is key to building a successful business, my prayer is that you accomplish these both so that you can build a successful business from the comfort of your home. All the best.

Hello Steve and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you've been here you might have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
You must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400 blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

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

Hello, Welcome to Premium,

If you have questions just ask, the whole community is ready to help. No questions are stupid.

EddySalomon Premium
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! :)
StevenRinker Premium
Hey Eddy,

I had been working through ClickBank mainly and have been researching the "Making Money Online" , Work From Home" ", "Work From Anywhere" Niches. I absolutely would love your input. I could use any help you have to offer!! :)

Talk soon!
EddySalomon Premium
Hey Steven,

Read the following: Let me know when you read both of them. Ok?
EddySalomon Premium
Hi again Steven ,

I'm starting to feel like a stalker. LOL But seriously, I'm just checking up on you. I noticed you still didn't fill out your account profile which consists of:

(1) Adding a profile image (can be anything you want)
(2) Adding a personal description

Just in case you don't know how to do it, watch the video on this page: Remember it's very important that you fill out your account profile. You don't get the same level of help if it's not completed. And quite frankly I want to see you succeed. It also shows other members that you are truly serious about learning to make money online. So take the 2-5 minutes to complete your profile so you can take full advantage of your first 7 days here at WA.

Let me know if you're having any issues with it. Once you've completed that be sure to visit the get started page: Hope this helps!

Eddy with a y
StevenRinker Premium
Hey Eddy!! I'm baaaaack! Ha! Sorry for the delay!
EddySalomon Premium
Welcome back.
StevenRinker Premium
It's a long story. One that I will not bore you with. I have been wandering through the making money online forest and I have been lost. Now I am back.

I had been considering the "Making Money Online" niche before I came back and am considering the affiliate bootcamp. I'm going to burn through these lessons.

I'm glad your're still talking to me! Ha!
EddySalomon Premium
Feel free to private message me using the envelope in the upper right hand corner. Don't burn through any of the training. Take your time so you don't miss things and make unnecessary mistakes trying to rush through it. It won't speed up the marathon ahead of you.
