About TonyRidgeway
Joined May 2013
Hello to all, I'm Tony. I've been trying this lovely internet marketing "thing" for about 7 years now. I have spent entirely too much time learning and not nearly enough time earning so to speak. I am here to try to regain focus myself, sort out some of the information overload that I've managed to obtain, and finally start hopefully making some money online.

I also hope to be able to share some of the knowledge that I've obtained through the years to help some fellow marketers out in some way or another. With that said, I wish you the best of luck.

Welcome back. I have not yet put in enough time here learning and becoming profitable. At the low end of the totem pole most of my time is spent expending labor and not getting enough to even pay the bills.
Stubborn, I have spent years on things and finally despite all the pitfalls and mysteries that seem impossible, perseverance in the end will see you through to your goal. Glad to see your back on your project.

Hi Tony. Labman pointed me in your direction, so I decided to follow you. Sounds like you've taken a similar journey with internet marketing to me. I've been trying internet marketing since 2008, and was originally a member of WA back in 2009, but then left and tried lots of other methods. I rejoined in 2015, and I'm so glad I did.

This time round, so far I've got 13 referrals, 2 of which have upgraded to Premium. It's just the beginning!...

Let me know if I can be of any help.

Marcus.

Life is a challenge and we need to be skilled to travel the road ahead. In this platform we find people who traveled the path and are returning so we can learn from them. Welcome back Tony, together we can make it.

Hello Tony! About you being in IM for 7 years: Today I had to do a reading test to a student that I gave intervention to last year & who was repeating 1st grade. It (even now as I think of it) made my heart feel good that she had made great progress. Last year I worried for what her life would look like in the future. Sometimes we need to take our time to learn things but then come out & hit the ground running. May you be doing that now! Great success to you friend!

TonyRidgeway Premium
Thanks Dorothy!

I know how rewarding those moments can be. My personal long term goal is to learn the marketing world well enough to be earning my own way so that I can take the time to teach others here in my local area free of charge. I see so much potential surrounding me, but because of the economy and isolation here, many rarely have an opportunity to show their talents. Best of luck to you once again!

Hello Tony, nice to meet you and thanks for connecting with me.

I must agree with you that I have found myself in that position of trying to sort the info by putting the round peg in the round hole. The information can sometimes be too much to handle but taking it one day at a time helps.

I wish you much success.
