About Tclough
Joined June 2015
Hi, my name is Tom. I have been interested in affiliate marketing for many years but my past ventures never came to very much. I would put in some effort, make just a few dollars a month and give it up as not worth my time.

My job always made it hard to find the time to devote to a serious effort at making money online. Now though, I am retired and I am determined to make a success of Internet marketing.

While I am lucky that my years of employment will give me a relatively comfortable retirement, I want to do more. I want to make a substantially higher income as an entrepreneur than I ever did as an employee. I want to have the money and the time to enjoy my hobbies of aviation, travel, photography and genealogy as well as to be able to afford the "toys" that go with them.

As Jimmy Buffett said, "I am growing older but not up"

Wealthy Affiliate has the training and the supportive community I need to make those goals happen! I find the answers to all my questions here at WA. This time I have the knowledge and support I need make a real income online.

The WA experience is amazing. I look forward to many years of learning and participation in this outstanding community.

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 Tom, Found a few similarities between us: Like Jimmy Buffet sayings … My favorite is "Lets have another margarita!" and we feel profiles are not complete without real names. I also would like to see what country people are from, so that I can base response on culture as well as words.
I'm looking forward to reading many of your posts. BTW, thanks for following me,

How our lives change! I worked in air traffic control in the Air Force. I took the test to work for the FAA when I got out but, while I was waiting to get hired, I started doing cell phone product development and never went back to ATC. So many forks in the road.

Hello,

I spied you briefly as I passed through chat and I just had to ask...what type of pilot you are?

I thought Helicopter at first but, now I'm not sure. I got excited just looking at the picture. I'm 43 now and it's not likely that I will get my pilots licence before I die but, I'm keeping it on my bucket list just in case!

I thought about small planes but, when I was in my first copter flying into the North Rim of the Grand Canyon I about lost my mind with excitement and sheer awe.

Also, quite a different experience after hiking down miles of switch back with a 70 lb pack into the South Rime ha!

Anyhoo, just wanted to inquire within.

Blessings, on you and yours...and that little guy Max as well.
(I hope he isn't running you too ragged hehehe)

tclough Premium
Hi Fyre,

I am a private pilot, single engine land. The airplane I am flying in the picture is a Cessna 172.

Please don;t give up on your dream of flying. It was always something I wanted to do too but life just kept getting in the way. I didn't get my license until I was 56 so it is absolutely not too late for you!

Max isn't here today. He stays with us two nights a week and he will be back tomorrow. Then the tornado begins.

Hi Tom, thanks for the follow. I admire your motivation and while I'm not retired, mine is similar. I have a goal to semi-retire by 55 (11 years from now) and believe that an online business is the vehicle to succeed in that goal.

Hello Tom ... thank you for the follow. Looks like you've got a great start up the learning curve. You couldn't be in a better place to learn about Affiliate Marketing.

Years ago I aspired to be an aviator, starting with Marine Corp flight training in Pensacola, FL. A problematic knee from high school football dashed that dream when I received an honorable medical discharge.

I thought about continuing my flight training in the civilian world, but that proved too costly so I had to move to plan B of what to do when I grew up.

I wish you the best on your WA journey.
Reply
tclough Premium
Hi Dennis. I was very much like you. I tried a few times to get going with flight training. I joined the Aero Club at my first Air Force posting but I was transferred after only a couple lessons.

Once out of the military, family and jobs (and money) kept me away. I did try another start once but could keep it up because of money.

Finally, at 55, I decided it was now or never. I flew when I had the time and money. I took 2 years to get my license. But I did it.

It's never to late to start., That's as true of flying as it is on startign an online business.

Best wishes for all you do in life.

I want to thank you for following me. It is an honor. Please feel free to contact me by Private Message at any time. I am always eager to help and if you ever want to vent .... I'm a good listener! :)

I really like your website, affiliate marketing for retirees. Pleasing to the eye and very informative.

I truly wish you MUCH Happiness and Success!

Thank you for following me Eileen and thank you for visiting my website. That is quit a story you and the "Pizza Doc" have unfolding on your site. I hope to see more.

I looked at your eBook too and added it to my reading list. Both the airline industry and building your own business intrigue me. Any plans for a new book about your online work? That would be an interesting read.

I wish you great success in all your ventures and look forward to getting to know you better here on WA and on social media.

Thank you so much for looking at the website and our book. :) And for the very kind words.

My husband has been planning on either a book, or a website (or both) to share his experiences while working for the airlines. He may not have access to his airline memorabilia for a while, because our oldest son needs to store some things in our shop area (due to his wife walking out and filing for divorce). Anyway, that is where we have many things stored.

But my husband is currently working on a book regarding how he became the "Pizza Doc," and also will share the special procedures and the recipe he developed over a year of trail and error... always delicious eating, by the way. :) LOL

So.. Good Lord willing, and the church don't rise.... we have many plans. We also have a very busy life (gardening, canning, raising 3 grandchildren plus our daughter-in-law's nephew, etc.)

Sorry.. I'm rambling.

Keep in touch...I am so glad we have met.
