About TheOldSilly
Joined October 2014
I am a multi-published author, professional editor, and a lifelong entrepreneur, who has built successful enterprises in the "traditional" business world, as well as the network marketing industry.

I believe in attaining success by helping others to be successful, and by providing great value to the marketplace.

At the spry and adventurous young age of 65, I recently remarried, to a lovely and wonderful young lady from Ghana, Africa. She keeps The Old Silly young at heart and spirit, and provides inspiration to build a global, successful, and long-lasting lucrative business.

I am working on just one website so far. My niche site focuses on one of my passions, that being cooking, especially ethnic foods. It is getting well filled out by now, and is well SEO'd. Traffic is growing, several hundred visitors on average by now daily, and sales are beginning to become fairly steady. I am sure it will be making decent money within the next 12 months. The name is Ethnic Foods R Us, at: http://ethnicfoodsrus.com.

And please, do leave comments there and give feedback here, I value the opinions and suggestions of this great WA community very highly.

Hello Marvin, is great to see you here at Wealthy Affiliate, I've just been reading your profile and it makes for interesting reading! It's amazing what people do, it looks like you're moving your web business forward to, which is great news.

Thanks for your comment on my site, Marvin.. And yes, it posted and I replied.

I will surely visit your site to try some goat recipes, as well as your lady's Ghana staples. I'm fortunate to live 15 minutes from a great international market that has fresh goat meat, plantains, casaba, and all the rest... Time to put that place to good use!

If you're game, I can share some of the local foods of my part of Ohio, such as goetta and Cincinnati chili. Not sure if or how it would make sense to do that, but I'm open to requests...

BTW, what part of the globe do you inhabit these days?
Reply
TheOldSilly Premium
Great you have a good international market nearby! That's why I monetize my site by providing links to obtain those sometimes "hard to find locally" ingredients, cuz many people can't get them in order to make the real authentic version of the recipes.

I am currently in Michigan, awaiting the USCIS to issue my wife's immigration visa. Then, I will fly back to Ghana and stay there for a time while we prepare to move back to the States together.

I would like to learn more about your Ohio dishes. In fact, it gives me an idea for another "ethnic" group to feature - Mid-Western USA foods are just as culturally unique as Southern Soul Food and West Coast American.

The Cincinnati region has some interesting local dishes.

Most folks who eat goetta (pronounced "get-tuh" ) buy it pre-made and fry it like one would fry mush or pork sausage. It is a locally developed varaiation of a German food similar to scrapple, but I find it much better (I can be very objective as one who has enjoyed this oatmeal-meat breakfast food on and off for over 6 decades...). Primary suppliers are in Covington, Kentucky, a suburb that like Cincinnati was heavily populated by German immigrants over a century ago. My wife is from Detroit, and her family took to it right away, although she never has. I've heard of a few families and restaurant chefs that make goetta, but they are rare. If a goetta recipe is needed, I'll need to do some experimentation to find one that will pass muster...

Cincinnati chili is a local dish developed by a Greek immigrant who added new spices and cooking methods to local chili to create a beef based sauce that is used as the basis for the entire menu in "Chili Parlor" restaurants of which there are many, including two major chains that have spread out of state, and several famous independent restaurants and minor chains. Cincinnati chili restaurants have some things in common with the Coney Island restaurants of Detroit (Greek ownership, coney island hot dogs and lots of chili on the menu) but the chili is very different. In my years living far from Cincinnati I learned to make this dish, and even shared my recipe with an Indian friend who was very pleased with how it works with ground goat meat in place of the ground beef. When I make it, I generally use ground turkey, which also works well.

There are local festivals that celebrate both of these regional foods, but I've not participated in those - a bit too narrowly focused for my tastes.

TheOldSilly Premium
Cool, thanks, Steve. I will look into these, as well as researching MidWest American "ethnic" dishes in general.

Hoo-boy, I just sketched an outline that means weeks more work! LOL - but hey, I enjoy this, and the more my site offers, the better off my readers are.
Reply
Sftat Premium
I can imagine it would be a fertile field to plow. Midwestern US foods include a LOT of eclectic treasures, and often people 50 miles away are clueless. There is a wealth of Amish, East European derived, African American soul food and Barbecue, and regional dishes like the strange ones here in SW Ohio. My inlaws in Detroit had some amazing food, but the best of the cooks in that family have passed on, and I'm not sure how many of the recipes live on - I sure hope the Texas cornbread, vidalia onion cassarole and BBQ ribs have not vanished.

I should not be thinking so much about this on a fast day...

Wow, you are accomplished. I have managed different types of retail over the years and had a successful DJ entertainment company for years and then the competition became so great that I just lost to much business. I specialized in Karaoke and at one point our company had 16 shows a week going, plus private parties and we loved it. It was a business that both my wife and I did together.

For this business my wife is not very supportive, she feels I spend to much with little return and she is probably right, I have got sucked into many bad programs, that is why I love WA so much the people are awesome and the education, not to mention the hosting, is phenomenal.

I pray continued success in your niche and may all your dreams become a reality.

Your in Christ,

Art Klemme

Joyce122 Premium
Hi Art, I was reading Marvin's posts after just giving him feedback on his website, and noticed your into karaoke. I am too! I gave it alot of thought to build a business but to many other things going on right now. Maybe in the near future. My niche is about karaoke and been creating my website. Not to sure where it's all heading, but making an effort.. I feel I have alot in common with you about being suckered into bad programs, but I feel that WA is not like that, and that is why I am trying to make this work... I would like to add you as a friend as well as Marvin, maybe we can learn something from each other... If you would like take a look at my website, but I still have more to accomplish with it before I send it off for feedback.. www.singingatune.com

I joined WA in October 2014, and feel it was one of the best decisions I've made in a long time.

Hey thanks, Johan. So you lived in Accra, eh? I love that city, and Ghana. Going back over next month, and will be staying for probably about a year.

The cool thing about WA and having an online biz is, you can build anywhere in the world where you can get online.

Yip that is very true , all you need is a laptop/phone........and a good internet provider - there are a few options in Ghana , shop/ask around and make sure you reside in a aeria that has good signal reception. As far as i know there's no fibre optics as yet (speaking under correction though) So do a bit of finding out and research before purchasing or signing up to a contract. Yes theres a very nice expat community there aswell and the weather/climate is fantastic. Enjoy and take care, Johan

Hi, it’s a pleasure to meet me, lol.

No seriously, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for following me. I’m pretty impressed with WA training and I think we will find a gold mine of information. Hmmm, seems like geniuses like us tend to gather in the same place (lol).

Anyway, here’s wishing you all my best for your success with online marketing. Let me know if I can help you.

I think something is wrong with wordpress because after you mentioned about your site health, i have been having issues to include my plugin health went down and I haven't changed anything about that. Also my blog print won't appear on the screen but it showed my letter count at the bottom. I've turned my computer off, shutting all the down and even started all over and still having that issue so I am quitting for the night and hope tomorrow is better.

I have me a 35 Year old beauty in Ukraine, or Russia now after they took over Criema. I have been chatting with this woman since 2012, so we are a little over three years into our online dating. She has a wonderful 13 year old boy, it will be fun to ride dirt bikes and such with him when I get them over here. I gave up on Cali women and desided to be like Mr Trump and get me an exotic female with black hair. I was chatting with some from Accura, one with black hair and almost look like mexican girl. But I found short black hair woman with blue eyes to die for. I think of something and soon after she is writing me about it or asking question just like I had spoke to her in person.
Ill hook up with you later today, got a bunch of stuff to do out back.

That works for me oh Silly one! How do I bookmark or highlight the ones on here that I really connect with? Do you know? I can definitely see down the road when your network list gets so big it is hard to keep track. Please let me know if you know. Thank you in advance.

I have an extremely strong "WHY" so failure is not an option. I rarely if ever use negativity in my speech so I'll spin that and Say Success is Inevitable.
I realize the power of synergy and that you can do a whole lot more, accomplish more than you could have ever dreamed of if you work with somebody even if only through the energy you create. Life is the story going through our heads. Reaching goals and success is always a journey with plenty of road blocks. With help and encouragement from those you share similar experiences with, you certainly stand a better chance of succeeding.

Terry, I usually only refollow those with an Ambassador ranking of 1,000 or higher. I made an exception in your case because I saw an exceptional "something" that caught my interest.

Hi Marvin. I just was reading the comments on Zou Zous' last blog and saw your comment about the armless guitar player playing with his feet. Wow! I know that was an amazing site to see.

All of us who play instruments know it is not an easy thing to do, but with practice, we can go farther than we thought we could.

I have carpel tunnel, so that limits me some, even after surgery. I keep trying to build my hand and finger strength. But, I keep plugging away.

Hope your guitar journey is enjoyable and most of all fun. Blessings to you, your bride and your business.

Hello again, Marvin.

Just wanted to slip by and thank you here in the WA community for the time you took to go and drop into my site and for leaving a comment there. Getting feedback from others holds tremendous value.

You asked me what theme I am using. It is "Asteria Lite". There is a pro version that I may upgrade to someday. For now it is serving my needs and gives my site the look I was looking for. "-)

I am not using a plug-in to have the blogs post on my front/home page. Its just how it is designed.

Hope this is helpful.

I have dropped into your site on ethnic foods. I really like the feel of it and find it very interesting. Just haven't/don't have time to read through a bunch right now. Trying to keep up with writing my blogs for my site. This week still haven't written one. Its been a bad bad week with the 18 year old. So sad, he just won't work on the fact that he has suffered great losses in his young life, loosing his father in 2003 and his mother in 2010. At this rate he is headed for a very, very difficult life and all I have ever tried to do is be a solid and safe place for him. That' just about over now!

So sad...but that's not why I am writing you. Just blithering a bit...now I am off to write for my blog.

Kind regards,

Linda

TheOldSilly Premium
Appreciate knowing the theme and how it works, thanks for stopping by and leaving this nice long note for me. And I enjoyed going thru all your site's pages and offering feedback.i

It's a rough period of life for lots of young people. It's so sad that the decisions young people make that will effect them for life, are made at an age when they often don't have the wisdom or maturity to make good choices.
Reply
lindasea Premium
Yes indeed. He intellectually knows this because we have spoken about it as one of the reasons why he should listen to others and learn from them, accept a little humility, and just buckle under and 'get er done'.

Twenty-five years old, that's when the brain finally finishes its chemical dance and the all important ability to use "executive function" settles in. So SAD when you can't reach them and they get stuck in their ugliness. Still we have to choose and our choices will make what our life will become. Been saying this for years. Choosing to abuse one's grandmother, no matter how angry you are...not a good choice, especially when there is a little one who can and is affected by the ugliness.

Sorry...I'm ranting again. :-(

Thank you Kyle. I did take advantage of the "action takers" discount, much appreciated! And even the regular $47/mo membership is a steal, if you ask me. I've seen and been in a lot of "deals" and I've never seen this much support, training, and kick-ass tools made available for such a small investment of money. Pretty darn awesome.

So glad you are enjoying the training and the experience here at WA, we simply are not into raising our prices and in the 9.5 years we have been in business and that VAST amount of improvements we have made, we have kept our membership fees the lowest in the industry. In fact, the only comparable education platform in this niche is full sail and it is $80,000 for a two year degree lol.

Glad you are enjoying everything and I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead.
