About Theranman
Joined August 2012
I have been away for awhile, as I ventured back into the investment business, but I am now back and ready to start building my own business.

I am a person who spent the first 30 + years of my working career in an industry that I am not, real sure, how I ended up there in the first place. When I graduated from college, the economic environment was no better than it is today. Options were limited, no real internet back then. I landed in the investment management industry where I had a very diverse and successful career. I built many successful businesses within the industry for some very large companies and was financially rewarded, but it cost me too much. I lost touch with family, friends, and connections. I usually traveled on average 40 weeks out of the year. Always on planes and sleeping in hotels. Not a life I would recommend. To make a long story short, I decided I am tired of traveling, sacrificing, and building successful businesses for others. It's time to reclaim my life and build a successful business for me and my family and do it without all the hassles of travel.

I am an active person who enjoys being outdoors whether it is playing some type of sports or just working in the yard. I enjoy reading and exploring things I do not know about. How they work or does it work and why? I am a person of faith and believe we are all on a journey for a purpose and that we should embrace that journey. Enjoy the experiences and lessons to be learned.

Those are wonderful goals Randy and I can tell you firsthand that these are more than achievable. When I started out I had very similar goals and with some hard work and dedication, I exceeded any goals that I could have ever initially set.

You will get there if you invest some hard work and dedication to this, I don't have any doubt. :)

Thanks for the follow. Good luck with your online endeavors. Like you I'm ready to escape the corporate rat race. I believe that God allowed me to be laid off after 17 years with the same non-profit organization in order to discover new and exciting opportunities that I've been missing. God bless.

Hello Randy, Welcome! Nice to meet you, I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start I have written trainings for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post. It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right under trainings (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Understand, I wanted a daily quote on my website, but the plugin was not allowed. I do understand the policy of WA hosting to, when you have to set ports open for outside updates, you become vonerable for attacks

Do you know if is possible to transfer a domain bought on WA to another host?
Reply
Loes Premium
Yes you can transfer your bought domain to any host, the only domains you can't transfer are the siterubix

Thank you Loes. I think I may have to do that on this one. Can't seem to work this domain here.

Hey Randy, I got your message. Thanks for reading my guide. You actually caught me writing another, hah. I have a good concept of how online marketing works after 2 years of doing it and I took this year of college off to "finish up" what I'm doing I guess you might say. I.M. is tough if you don't know what to do starting out, but WA is the best place to learn how. It's important that you learn first, because if you try and take action too early, you'll only just learn more except revolving more around experimentation. In order to create a successful business, you need to play like the experts & pros do, unless somebody holds you by the hand who knows what they're doing and tells you exactly what to do based on 1 specific strategy they've made up for you.

I encourage you to read into these areas and have a strong grasp of these areas before really pushing forwards:
- Search Engine Optimization (All In One SEO Plugin)
- Article Marketing (Create Your Own Scalable Strategy)
- Content Creation for Websites
- Keyword Competition & Traffic - Really Important
- How to Setup Professional Websites that Attract Targetted (Demographic) Traffic That Converts Well in Sales

Feel free to stop by my wall if you need any help. Btw, that's cool you're up in St. Louis. I've actually met a few others from there too. I've seen about 5 people from Missouri so far maybe. Good luck. ~ Seth

Hi Randy
Thanks for your return follow, nice to meet you. You seem to have a great attitude and balanced view of life. And we do have a lot in common! I used to work in tourism, and I traveled way too much for a while also. (Now i just have a job that makes me crazy!). Keep in touch, would love to compare notes as we go. My first site needs work, but is getting close .... ! Kristi

Hello Randy,

Welcome to our community!

One of my biggest complaints about employment, even the high-paying career-type ones... They deprive folks of their family lives and next thing they know, their families have grown up and they've missed out, never to be able to repeat it again.

There's far more of a price to pay than most employees or professionals ever care to know about. This is one of them.

Very happy you are taking steps to correct this in your own life by coming into Wealthy Affiliate!

Cheers,

Daniel

I wouldn't have given much thought to this until I ran into Sam Crowley, who branded, "Six Days to Saturday!" He was a high-performing corporate executive in a high, corner office with excellent views of the city. His story is quite moving when his young daughter asked him "Daddy, is tomorrow Saturday?"

In sports and in life, everything changes. What worked yesterday never offers a guarantee that it will work again tomorrow. So you tweak and you tinker. You examine and you refine. You retool and you re-imagine and most of all, you constantly evolve. That’s how the truly smart ones always stay slightly ahead of the curve.

It's a great day to start your own business, Randy and Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. I see you've been around 2 months or so, so you're probably through the foundational elements of website structure and internet marketing. It sounds like you have tremendous business knowledge and experience so I would suggest building a business around what you know and love. Sounds like you could build a website around "how to re-claim your family and your life!". A lot of people would like to do exactly that. Google, jaaxy, or Wa search key words and phrases on that topic and see if it is something people are searching for. Write ebooks about different experiences that tie in with your niche(s)... the possibilities are endless and totally up to you. The good news is... you can do this from almost any where in the world.

As with any business, there is no magic or get rich quick here. What WA has are the tools, help and support you need to create your business. WA is home to a very large and wonderful Community of Internet Marketers… It all starts with ideas. If you need guidance the Founders (Kyle and Carson) are very active here and a couple of the best internet Marketers I've come across. (and I've seen a lot) They are more than willing to help and support you. Jay (Magistudios) is also another one that is very helpful... determine your needs and ask questions, help will find you. We share and learn from each other around here. If you need help.. we are all here. Post your questions in live chat (from your dashboard), post right here in your own space or pm someone you think could likely help you find a solution. There are also many tools at your disposal and a lot to learn, so now is the time to dive in…. WAbinars, tutorials, videos, forums, live chat, and more. Thank You for choosing to follow me and I look forward to seeing you create success for yourself. When in doubt, give me a shout. Julie

Julie,

Thank you so much for your advice and input. That is very important to me being new to this industry. I am excited to get started to learn how to build this into a successful business. Right now, I know just enough to be dangerous but have some ideas on what I want to do or build my business on. I may bounce some ideas off of you from time to time. Thanks again.

Amen to that .. In this game a little action goes a long way . Just like I said 1% a day is more than enough. & In-perfect action is better than no action.
Holla if you ever need an ear ,, though I have a feeling you'll be off like a shot! :)
