About TomMarchido
Joined August 2017
My wife and I are empty nesters in North Carolina and we're loving every precious minute! But, we can't stay away from the grandkids. They're the best part of becoming grandparents because we get to relive our childhoods through them! What a time we're having!

On a more serious note, we're getting ever closer to retirement and although I toyed with affiliate marketing in the past, I finally have more time and the desire to devote to this amazing business!

Tom,

Thanks for following me.

It is great that you have the time to make the commitment to internet marketing now that you are close to retirement.

My fiance is working for us so I can concentrate on WA. He even is gifting me money on my birthday (May 14) so I can pay for a yearly membership in June. It is great to have his support.

I'm sure you and your wife are supporting your efforts in becoming free from the grind.

I will add you to my Marketers To Watch notebook.

All the best,

Louisa

Hi Louisa, what a great game plan! And, yes, my wife and kids fully support what I'm doing. In fact, they're glad that I'm getting out of the "grind". See you at the top!

Hi Tom,

I often wondered what it would be like to have children and now I know, lol.

It’s pretty cool to have reached retirement so that you can devote your time to some affiliate marketing.

Nice.

When I was in high school I was going to take marketing classes and now I wish I had have. But it’s ok, I’m here at Wealthy Affiliate and I get a second chance to make that happen.

I’m excited for us both.

Kindly following you back,

Becky

Hi TomMarchido! It's a pleasure to meet you. I haven't any grandchildren as of yet. But working with children has filled that void. So I know how you feel. They keep you young in heart.

Thank you for the follow. I am following you as well.

I wish you much success here in WA. Have a great day.

Thanks, Kimberly. Yes, they sure keep us young at heart! We look forward to seeing them as much as we can. Sometimes, and I hate to say this, we need just a little break to catch our collective breaths! Lol.

Hi, Tom. Welcome to WA. It's nice to meet another Tarheel here. I live in Maggie Valley. Where do you live? Have you seen the posts about WAers meeting up with others in their area? I think it would be fun to do that once in awhile and rotate the location so it's maybe 1/2 way for people to travel.

Thanks for following me back. Best wishes in your online journey to success. Carol

Hi Carol, thanks for the welcome. We live in High Point. Love it here. The grandkids are over almost daily and of course, the weekends. Honestly, I hope it never changes!

You're fortunate that your grandkids live nearby. I only have one grandson, who will turn 18 in August. I hardly know him because I've always lived too far away to get to see him very often. He was 9 months old the first time I got to meet him.

Don't feel too bad. We have 9 grandkids, but only get to see 3 of them at any given time. The rest of them are in Michigan and we don't get to see them due to the distance, schedules, etc. But, I think that's going to change. One of our sons is coming down in July, and hopefully, my other son will two. Between the two, they have 6 of our other grandkids!

Welcome back, Tom... Looks like you may have started back with Wealthy Affiliate, just about the time I was a newbie, which was September the 15th of 2017. You have a 6 months badge also. You are an affirmation of the worth of Wealthy Affiliate, who is saying we are at the right place to work and learn together, along with our awesome coaches, Kyle, Carson, and Jay, our congenial Wealthy Affiliate community, and our super support team.

I moved to central Texas from west Texas in 2003 and I love it here. West Texas and Central Texas are both home to me, as Texas is the only state I have lived in. I have a roommate, two married daughters, 8 grandkids, and 7 great grandkids, and they all keep me young.

Thanks a lot for following me. I will follow you in return. We could check on each other's progress from time to time. Looks like you are ahead of me, which means you are farther on the road ahead, and you could fill me in on some things. Just joshing... Keep up the good work...Clay

Thanks, Clay, great to know you. Yes, I was here before but I just didn't concentrate, mainly because I was already working around 80 hours a week and finishing up my degree. That's all changed now which is why I knew I had to come back and make success at WA my next goal. So far, so good. Taking things a bit slower and learning more this way. I'm not one to rush through just to say I'm done - with nothing to show for it.

Anyway, let's keep in touch. Feel free to PM me whenever you feel like it. Take care, Clay.

Hi Tom, geat to meet you and thank you for following me.

You cannot stop in life and the grandkids will keep you active. Once you stop it is hard to get back up on the feet. As we age it takes months to get back into shape.

Cheers mate and I wish you the best in all aspects of life.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Go for it Tom..

My wife and I are also empty nesters and enjoying the experience.

However, you can't enjoy it and do the things you want to do without a nice little income over and above everything else,

That's why WA is such an opportunity.

Good luck and best wishes to your family.

It's good to hear from folks so far away that are taking part in WA. I started with WA many years ago and couldn't keep up the pace due to work. I'm really glad I'm back now that I have time to commit. Best of luck to you, too, Paul. Enjoy!
