About Tribe82
Joined August 2014
I graduated from the College of William & Mary with a BBA in accounting in 1982. Back in the early 1980's the school had the nickname of the Tribe, hence my moniker of Tribe 82, as I graduated in 1982. My real name is Robert or Bob. I went to work for Arthur Andersen in Houston, Texas for several years as an auditor (as an aside I worked with and know most of the folks that got caught up in the Enron scandal including David Duncan, Carl Bass and others). I did not much enjoy public accounting. I ended up in industry; worked for years in the satellite TV industry based out of Denver; this led me to several international postings in SE Asia as well as in the Middle East. I eventually returned back to the USA and landed in California where I had been until the end of 2013; for the last 15 years as the Director of Finance for a company in the Pro Audio Business based in Southern California. We built pro audio speakers and amplifiers and digital products. I have been an avid golfer since I was 12; I also skied a lot when I was in Colorado; I learned how to scuba dive when I was in the Middle East, and I generally enjoy the outdoors. I enjoy driving fast cars (could be genetic as my Dad flew fast planes for the Air Force) I am a big fan of the Denver Broncos; I have suffered through too many Superbowl losses! I am now living again in Denver.
Tribe82's Goals 3
Money Goals
This is an interesting question. I have no idea if I would ever be able to replace the income that I made in my last job which was about $225,000 the last year I was there. I hope I don't sound greedy, but I guess I would be ecstatic if I could double that; that is the answer to question 2. I know how much time I have invested in my life in jobs making money (or providing services which were of value to my employer); there were times when it was not unusual for me to continually average 50 plus hours a week week after week. As I am a bit older now, I don't know if I have the gas to continue to put in that much time, If i was having fun, I think I could. I see no reason why I can't go at this like it was a full time gig and put in 40 hours a week,. The problem has always been that I did not know WHAT to do, or it seemed like I did not have the skills do do what I thought I needed to do (like build a website), so my efforts seemed to be wasted or unproductive.

Nice goals Robert and I can tell you from personal experience, those goals are not greedy whatsoever and absolutely possible in this business. If you follow WA's guidelines and take action, I have no doubt you will be able to replace that income, double, tripe and even quadruple it. In internet business, sky is the limit :)

Welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate Online Business community. In the coming days you are going to learn about how the Internet can be leveraged to earn a substantial amount of money online. BUT, before this can happen you need to understand that in order to achieve success at anything, it will take a bit of work and you will hit a few bumps in the road along the way.

That is why I am here and that is why there is a big community here that is behind you (and rooting for you) every step of the way. If you ever need anything Robert, I am here to help so just let me know.

You can get started right away by working on the "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)" course found here:

Hey Robert, I wanted to stop by and personally welcome you to WA. Rest assured everything I mentioned about them is true :)

Whether you're here to build a business, a website or just want to learn and make money online, this is the only place that will show you the best ways to do it.

Here are my 2 quick recommendations on getting started out the best possible way:

1. Please complete your account sign setup. This is just a simple 1 minute process that will better help myself and WA know more about you and your goals. I'd like to get to know you better and help you get going.

2. After you've done this, check this page out: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1 (I think Kyle or Carson already recommended this). This is where everyone who joins WA should begin as it will explain everything.

The course is the most important part of WA. It will guide you to success!

And that's it!

Believe me when I say this stuff works. Just follow the instructions and if you have any questions Robert, feel free to leave them by just posting a reply here. I usually respond within 24 hours and will be more than happy to help you out!

One last thing I want to mention:

Currently you're a Starter member of WA. This is completely free and you can do a lot of things such as build 2 free websites, get access to training and the online chat, among other cool perks!

If you see that WA and it's training is something you'd like to continue, I would highly recommend upgrading to the Premium membership. It's usually $47 per month, but if you sign up within the first 7 days of joining WA...

1. You can get a 59% discount ($19 for the first month).

2. I'll send you my personal guide to Reaching Your Financial Independence in 2014. This guide is based on my EXACT profit generating techniques I've used with WA. If you are serious about online business, you need to have this. :)

3. You get access to my personal support, 24-7. If you need help, you can be sure that you can fire any questions my way. I have been in the Internet marketing world since 2006 and have likely seen it all! In short, if you have ANY questions, you can come to me anytime and I will help you out (if I can't, I promise to find you the answer). You can count on that.

Certainly this is up to you Robert. For now just check out the recommended things and see how it works out :)

Talk to you soon!

Vitaliy
