Hi!

My name is Tom and I am excited to be here at WA!

I'm hoping to learn how to help others meet their goals of establishing a prosperous online business and in the process establish one for my family as well.

In today's changing world, it is more important than ever to diversify your income streams. Working a "clock punching" job may provide a certain level of stability, but, if you are like me, you have found that it just doesn't allow you to grow to your potential, or, allow you to have the freedom to manage your time so that you can pursue the more important things in life.

Spending time with your family for example. Being there to enjoy teaching your children, watching them grow. I feel like I have been robbed over the years of some of the most important times in my family's life. Times that I will never be able to recover, simply because I have traded my time for a paycheck.

I see these same things now happening to my children as they are raising their children. The days slip by. Both them and I consumed with the day to day requirements of life in our modern world.

Each day comes with a cost, measureable in dollars, for our meager existence. The mortgage, car payments, insurance, credit cards, and a vast array of other expenses that I am sure you can relate to.

With all these burdens on our financial lives, to spend our most precious of resources, our time, trading it, for what someone else believes our time is worth, is ludicrous, and a battle we are sure to lose.

I have heard it said that you can never become wealthy trading your time for money. Put another way I recently read "the monkey dances for coins". I am tired of being the monkey scraping by on the scraps that are thrown to me.

I bet you feel the same way.

That's why we are here! At Wealthy Affiliates! Working toward a better way to secure a path for ourselves and our families.

I'm hoping to learn how to help others meet their goals of establishing a prosperous online business and in the process establish one for my family as well.

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile!
I would be very interested in your perspective of what I have written here.
Please feel free to send me a line or two, or contact me if you think I can be of any help to you.

I wish you the best of luck in all your endeavors!

Sincerely,
Tom

PS. If you have the time, could you please check out my websites listed in the panel to the right and leave a comment on the website? I would really appreciate it! Good luck to you !


UPDATE!!! Well, I have been here over a year now and I have to tell you I Love Wealthy Affiliate! No kidding!

I have really learned a lot here, and, even though I have had a few setbacks, Wealthy Affiliate is working for me! I have been implementing what I have learned in the lessons and it is generating some revenue!

One of my previously stated goals was to "learn to help others meet their goals of establishing a prosperous online business." I'm still working toward that goal. Becoming proficient with the tools of the trade here will definitely be a huge help!

Many thanks to all those that have helped me along the way and to those that are new here, if I can be of any help, please don't hesitate to ask!

I wish you all great success and prosperity!

Sincerely,
Tom

Your sentiment about lost time resonates with me. My hope has always been that internet marketing could free me from the bondage of work. But I found that there is false hope associated with many people promising so much. Yet I remain positive because my personal seeking has led me here. And to you as well. There has to be a great deal more we could do together than as individuals. I have only been here less than a day, but I am overjoyed with the reception and quality of interaction and service. I couldn't find a link to your site, but I would be happy to check it out. Peace, grace, and new beginnings!

Your positive outlook as expressed in your profile message will serve you well in this journey. I wish you all the best in your endeavors.

Hi Tom,

Loved reading your profile. I totally understand how you feel. I have had my own conventional manufacturing business for many years and only reciently decided to make a complete change due to many of the things you mentioned in your profile.

One thing I have learnt reciently is to Focus on what you really want in Life and don't focus on what you don't want. This may sound a bit obvious but most people don't actually do it.

I do believe you can do and be anything to want in life you just have to believe in yourself and take action every day.

Love and Life

Hi, Tom. Very nice to meet you :) Thank you for the follow. Being a stay-at-home mom who homeschooled my children I was fortunate to be able to watch them grow and was instrumental in their education yet I can still relate to your feelings of being robbed but rather of quality family leisure time. I think most parents suffer from 'cat's in the cradle' syndrome in one way or another. But as you stated, that's why we're here. I wish you much success.

I hope that you find great success here at WA! Good luck to you in all your endeavors!

WOW Tom,
I must say that you have presented an issue that 97% or so of Americans are experiencing each and every day of their lives. And you are so right I too was tired of the punch and trade time for money game, that is why I had to find other sources of income for myself and my family.

Oh, by the way, thank you for following me I am so happy that you have chosen me to be a part of your network.I can see that you have been doing a lot of learning and growing since you started here. Tom I have no doubt that your success is just a few clicks away, I will be checking out your blogs and websites and getting back to you with my reviews.

Keep up the good work, you are on the right path to fulfilling your goals. Keep in close contact. AB.

Tom, you are right on the money about time for dollars. I love my work but the part that just drives me around the bend is the "wage Slave" mentality of some of my co-workers. Although I love my job I don't want to do it forever and would love to spend more time with the kids and grand-kids helping them create a future that doesn't include "pay per hour". That's why I am here at WA. To lead by example.

It's nice to meet you. I feel the same way, that our time is worth much more than anyone else can put a number on. I am at the point as many of us here with WA are that it is time to take action and make it count so we can free up our precious resource of time. So thanks for following me and I'm sure I'll be seeing you around.

Hey Tom,

I originally signed up for Wealthy Affiliate years ago, and only stayed about a month or two. Life kind of got in the way, but thankfully I never forgot about WA. Early July of this year, 2016, I knew it was time to go premium and make a real go of it. I worked support work in a hospital for over 11 years now, and as much as I don't mind my job, I'm like yourself in a way, I just want to be free from working for someone else. I would rather be my own boss, than rely on someone else who has the say about my pay, and more importantly my time. So it hasn't been a month yet, and I am working on the Affiliate Bootcamp as much as I can. I'm sure before too long it will pay off but so far no income. I'd love to be free from the daily grind, and even get my wife free from it too!

I do know it is possible, as there are people here who have replaced their job and their spouses job. Anything worth doing is worth doing right. Our time and effort will pay off! I believe that, and I believe in Wealthy Affiliate!

I'm sure I'll see you around Tom,

Jon

Hi Tom, would like to invite you to join a group to help each other improve Google rankings. Google rely on "engagement metrics" results (which can be found in google analytics) to determine our rankings in Google search results. Please read further below:

Google is putting more emphasis in User Experience. Because Google can't read human's mind, Google rely on engagement metrics, which can be found in Google Analytics to judge user experience. For examples :
1. Sessions with search : total number of visitors who searched for your website in Googl search
2. Results Pageview / Search : total number of pages visited after clicking into your website from search results
3. Click Through Rate (CTR) : the percentage of users clicking into your website from search results
4. Pageview : total number of pageviews
5. Unique pageviews : total number of pageviews by new users
6. Avg. time on page : average time spent reading a page
7. Pages/session : average number of pages users navigated when visiting your site
8. Avg. session duration : average time spent navigating your website
9. Bounce rate : the percentage of users leaving your website without navigating to a second page

Better engagement metrics results indicate good user experience to Google, which will improve our rankings.

I have started a ranking tool in my site to do exactly that, inviting people within WA community and people from other communities, so that we can get more people to contribute in this group.

REMEMBER THIS : ALL EFFORT IS WORTHLESS IF NOBODY IS VISITING YOUR WEBSITE.

Using this tool in a consistent manner will effectively improve your Google ranking.

Please visit http://www.kickstartdream.com, and click on Ranking Tool.

Dear Tom,
You're right about the issue of time. I remember my Mentor once said, you can not be wealthy working for someone and that you have to own your own Business. The imagination and knowledge coupled with wisdom would be given to you by God so that you will prosper and your wealth of experience will act as a catalyst in your favor to propel you to desired goals and accomplishments.

I wish you resounding success in your pursuits.

Best Regards

Hey Tom,

Great to meet you. I totally agree with your perspective, and is exactly why I joined WA. I want to learn how to create a business that affords me a sense of purpose, great learning opportunity, work that once done creates a passive income, which in turn provides the luxury of time.

Like you, I want to learn the skills and then help others. For me it's all about freedom, and that's worth working for.

Good luck with your journey. We're all in this together.

Following are COMMENTS I wrote on Steve's post on your civilsociety site. (I seem to have a problem with 'javascript and cookies'. I will transfer comments when i have resolved that problem. You may respond then.)

Thank you Steve for sharing this post ('Escaping...). Thanks Tom for hosting it. Below are my first impressions (thoughts).

The post, Tom's remarks and Dr Deb's comments, in my mind lead to the question we need to ask ourselves, and our educators, i.e., "Are we teaching our students on 'HOW TO THINK?'.

I'll re-visit and digest this and some other posts. I believe I've found a great resource to help me understand civility, what is civil society, and what outcomes to expect of our educators. Thanks again. >>

I wonder the same thing > " Are we teaching our students hot to think?"

I fear that we are NOT. Since now they need a safe space anytime they are confronted with an idea that may be contrary to what they already know. Critical thinking is likely not on the agenda of the liberal establishment. They want more sheep, not more leaders.. Just my opinion.

Open discussion of differing opinions is how we learn and grow. Without it, education is just preaching.

All the best to you!

Tom

Ya know ! it's not easy sometimes. I'm actually going to the roughest time of my life now. I will fight to resolve everything. I do know the why's and have certainty to why I am here . This is very important to know. It is the same for you.
Like you i guess we just need to move on. I also quess that it is very important to the " WHY " we are doing this and have this certainty that should go with it. I realize i am repeating myself. Discover "WHY" you are doing this and have tremendous "CERTAINTY" and that will bring you to succeed in what we here all wish to do or to have. If I can I will follow you too. I truly wish you succeed in what you are doing. It may take time at least that's what I think for me because I don't even really know how an iphone works. I do know the "WHY'S "and just for these "WHY'S" I am able to have this "CERTAINTY" therefore continue towards my goal and eventually succeed.;
Thank you the follow. All the luck to you..

Hi Tom! I really enjoyed reading your bio. It really resonated with me. The whole thing about dancing monkeys hoping to get a few coins is so true. But more than that, the way we live tied to all those "necessary" monthly payments. I live very frugally and I sometimes wonder if other people could let go of the things they think they need. People tend to want more... not less. It's hard to downsize once you've reached a certain level, but I feel a lot more people are going to have to do it anyway in the near future. It's just the way things are.

Best of luck with all you do.

Nice to meet you sir! I believe it it part of our culture to try to have at least one of everything. Many of us are very spoiled with the conveniences of modern life. As I look around me now I have a room full of stuff I really don't need. These things just take up space. There is some stuff over there that I haven't touched since I put it there ..... What value is that stuff to me really! But I digress.. You got me going on that one :)

Hi Tom. Thanks very much for choosing to follow me. I am following you too. Your profile really resonated with me. I got tired of being a monkey and took a plunge off the banana plant. Getting by quite nicely but, like you say, I want to live my life at my own pace now. My hope is that WA will set me free. Take care.
