About TexPat
Joined September 2016
Starting at the beginning. My name is Patrick and I was born and raised in Houston Texas. I love the fact that my name was given to me by my birth mother and my adoptive parents loved it so much, they kept it when they adopted me. Only wandered away from my hometown to attend college. Having been a competitive swimmer since i was 12 years old, i attended University of Texas @ Austin on a full swimming scholarship. I still participate in Master's swimming which allows me to train and compete until i leave this earth.
I am an AVID live music lover and I am currently on the Board of Directors of the Houston Blues Society. This exposes me to as much live music as I can handle. It has also allowed me to develop many dear, supportive friends in the music community. I hang out with them and participate in Music festivals all over Houston and beyond. And truly, if I had not had this community to support me during my run with cancer (my wife was my savior), I would have had a much more difficult time with it.
My major in school was Pre-med but organic chemistry diverted my path, so to speak.
I have been in the home building industry for just over 40 years. The familiarity of it is getting uninspiring to say the least. I would like to play and learn in an entirely new venture & realm. Stretch my mind and skills building a business in a new niche and online. Sounds pretty cool to me!! Patrick

Great goals Patrick! With the biggest market in the world, the sky is truly the limit and you will see that as you progress here at WA. Some may think that it is impossible until they start to see you making money. For me, I blocked out all the negativity and now everyone wants to know what I do (SMH). You got this my friend and I look forward to working with you more and helping you achieve your goals!

Success is very cumulative in nature. Every action you take will add up to a much greater success. I can tell you that when you earn your first money, it will all become very REAL and it will lead to much more success.

Personally it took me a couple of months to get there (to earn my first dime), but by month 6 I was earning a consistent income. That is likely what your journey will look like...stay persistent and ask for help when you need it. I am in your "corner" every step of the way Patrick! :)

Hi Patrick and welcome to Premium! If inspiring is what you are looking for you are at the right place!

I would sincerely appreciate if you could take a moment to review my first blog article: It reviews some of my lessons learned in my first few weeks at WA. Perhaps there is a tip there that could help you on your journey, otherwise, please leave your tips on getting started in the comments of the article - I would love to hear from you!

Good luck with your journey at WA!
Cheers,
Estie

Welcome, Patrick to our world of magic and wonder. You will find unlimited opportunities in our community. Take your time, go thru the courses, lessons, and Bootcamp, in order and you will find even MORE opportunities.

I spent five years trying to find a place like this and wasted a considerable amount of money. This is the real deal!

Again, a warm welcome to our "mountain climbing" team!

All the best,

Steve

What's up Patrick and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

It's great to see you made it here and I just thought I'd welcome you and help you get started on the right track.

You will learn a lot within the next few days and you will meet a bunch of new people, who will help you along the way so don't be afraid to ask any questions.

As a new member here, you want to put up a pic (preferably of yourself) and say a little something about you so that it can be easier for others to help you.

To start the training, just head over to the Online Entrepreneur Certification getting started course (Level 1). This is a task based course that will get you taking action on daily tasks that will lead to you building web assets right away.

Here is the link that you will see within your main menu labeled "Get Started Here". Just take a look around, get to know how the site works, and see what WA has to offer. Let me know if you have any questions and I will get back to you as soon as I can.


Talk to you soon,


- John
