My name is Thomas Johnson, I live in South Jersey just across the bridges from Philadelphia, PA. Married 52 years to my bride Diane; we have one daughter (Deanna) and 3 grandchildren (Deonte, Danaus, Dior), they live in PA. I spent 37 years in healthcare in Support Management in Hospital Administration positions in Hospital in NC, DE, NJ, and NJ. Retired from Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia, PA as Director of Perioperative Administration in June 2014. (Managed Implants Inventory, OR attendants, Room turnovers, Room scheduling, Environmental Control, OR Supplies, OR Scheduling).
I saw online marking as a way to supplement my retirement and tried, back in the early 2000’s, to get in the right online marketing business to earn a healthy income. I have been unsuccessful with online marking, lost thousands of dollars with online companies that were out for the money, one company I invested heavily into overnight went out of business, many others claiming to educate on how to make money online only to get pdf downloads and videos with little substance and up selling worthless products into thousands of dollars.
I came across Wealthy Affiliates through an annoying popup of a guy making a muscle. After further investigating and the email I got from Steve Razinski I felt I found something real that might work. I like the theme, approach to education, website materials, and low startup cost. I’m starting to appreciate community engagement. I think I’ve found the right vehicle for my journey in my retirement years.
