Hey! I have lots of business experience with local business but absolutely no experience with online business... I would really like to diversify and learn more about getting cash flow from an online model!! Yay!!

UPDATE: Didn't delete my original bio ^above^ because I want to show my level of reservation coming into this program... I didn't feel I needed to share my story. I'm a very private guy! As I spend time here, I understand it's very important to explain who you are because your experience is something that can catapult you to another level as well as help people to their next level... and that is important in this process! Plus... The community here is great!

My name is Ty Valkanas. I'm a former US Navy SEAL and was in the military for 11 years. I'm also a former Police Offer and was a cop for 3 years after getting out of the military.

Only reason I got out of the SEAL Teams was because I had kids... I was raised that family is very important and I decided to get out of the military because I was gone so much in the military and wanted to try something different to be around for my kids and actually be a dad.

The cop job was good... but it did not give me the time I wanted with my family... so I started trying to figure out what I wanted to do when I grew up... lol

That's when I started learning about real estate investing. I started buying and selling investment real estate as an investor in the US and I timed the market very well from 2001 to 2007 and accidentally did really well investing in real estate.

In 2006-7, I started noticing the real estate market changing and we quickly diversified and opened up a fitness and mixed martial arts gym. This was an easy transition for me because all my life I have been focused on health, fitness, and combat arts.

I've learned so much running these businesses over the years. One thing I've always wanted to do was learn how to take things more "online" because we can help so many more people with these incredible tools and resources!

You never stop learning! As long as you keep going, you never stop getting valuable experience!

People always ask me what it was like to be a Navy SEAL... It's tough!

The only difference between guys who make it through training to be Navy SEAL's and those who don't, is that the guys who make it through simply never quit.

Success comes at a price! Anything worth while comes at a price! The real question is are you willing to pay the price to actually get what you want...

I sincerely hope this motivates at least one person to take action in their life.

To our Success! God bless!!

Hi, Ty!

You are actually a very good writer: I like the flow, it is easy to follow. You have rhythm and action so that I can create perfect visuals. Simple, to the point and very interesting. That is a trick about "digital writing."

...I am from a military family and have a soft spot in my heart for all our best guys and ladies in military uniform.

Well, we are lucky to have you. Welcome to the blogging squad!

Paying a price. That is the main thing. Unfortunately, some people consider running a site is a "cool" and trendy thing. But this beast is very demanding serious business. I have NO DOUBTS you will have a tremendous success here.

Good luck and see you around.

Of course, thank you for following. I will do the same!

THANKS FOR YOUR SERVICE!

Welcome to the WA Family. Very shortly after joining I realized WA was much more than a community – it is a Family. Start your training at Level 1 and progress as quickly and thoroughly as time permits. Ask your new brothers and sisters for help when needed and offer help when and where you can. Go through all the levels and lessons, watch Magistudio’s LIVE Webinars each Friday (you can search MAGISTUDIO on WA to get past webinars). Stay consistent and NEVER, NEVER, NEVER give up.
Best Wishes and Blessings,
Leo

Thank you for your US Navy Seal service, most of us will never fathom what you and your brother in arms do to keep our nation safe.

Thank you for your LEO service, most of us sleep soundly at night because you and your fellow officers are our shields against the criminals among us.

Please let me know if you have any questions, this lowly former 71D US Army vet salutes and welcomes you with a deep sense of appreciation.

Please send me a PM when you have time, I have a few vets and law enforcement projects ongoing which are meant to benefit our service members in and out of uniform and their families.

Blessings!

I understand your reservation my friend sometimes even amongst those you trust, you need to keep a bit of yourself hidden. I like shocking people, so I keep most of me hidden and give just a little as I go. I am amazed about your endeavours, wow! Never quitting is my motto too, even though I had to fight and survive other life battles to get to where I am today.

My eldest daughter is in here (19) and she is looking to join our NZ Defence force, she has been brought up watching me in my personal battles and the values of honor, loyalty, faith and truth has been instilled in her from a very young age. I read her King Arthur and all the awesome hero stories lol.

Thank you for sharing the rest of your story, although you didn't have to. I am always in awe of those who can give their lives to protect everything they stand for. Yes, you are amazing and I am sure you are going to succeed here 😆

It is truly an honor to know and network with you.

Malo (thank you in Tongan)

You must be a very proud mom!! As you should be... sounds like you have an amazing daughter!

I mentioned some things here simply because it is who I've decided to become one decision at a time... for my own reasons and with my own failures and set backs... Many people getting started or getting stuck may need some motivation and inspiration... maybe I can help provide some. I know I need some myself from time to time! lol

Thanks so much for your kind words!! Look forward to networking with you!

Hi Ty and thank you for the follow - also following you back.

It's great that you have the business experience as you will to reflect on this at a later stage.

As far as the online training as well as the learning is a learning curve itself. Mostly fun but on the rare occasions, has bought me tears due to the frustration :) BUT that is the way it goes.

Once you have the training basics, more and more opportunities and doors will open up for you :)

Wishing you every success :)

Hello Ty And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you will no doubt know that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve and there will always be something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 500+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Have a great day.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us. 

Wealthy Affiliate is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business. I tried to do this alone before and was completely lost. 

Now I know why. 

There are so many tricks of the trade and it saves so much time having it all laid out clearly in its training programs. 

Keep following the training and exercises every day. Give it a year to see significant results. You'll be a happy camper by then. We all make progress at different rates and it is possible to see meaningful results in 4-6 months. Google cannot be rushed. 

Google rewards people with websites that provide value to their visitors. It helps to boost their ad revenue of course! And that helps your websites get high rankings. But it takes time to build credibility. Once they realize your site is an authority site, good things will happen faster. 

When you get stuck, and you will, just ask for help in the discussion area located below each lesson. Scroll down to find it. Another member who has the answer will get back to you promptly. 

In the meantime have fun with the program. Much success to you.

Cheers!

Edwin

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! :)
