About Urtimelyal
Joined February 2014
Hi and thanks for visiting my profile.
My state of life right now is thoroughly enjoying it as a retired senior. Age has not overtaken youth or vigor. The background is chock full.
Two simultaneous careers were pursued. The first was sales and marketing. The second involved having earned a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology and doing therapy work for twenty-five years. These two areas were incorporated into one another and have given rise to a very active retirement that keeps my juices flowing.
I love worthwhile challenges and WA certainly seems to offer that. I love learning the new while bettering the old.
I research, write full texts, and extrapolate for MS Power Point presentations for interactive adult workshops, many of which I facilitate. To clarify, a few topics are: Living and Working with Different Generations, The Dynamic Process of self-Change, Communicating Values with Adolescents, Stress Reduction, and etc.
There's a lot more stuff but that's enough for now. Later...
Thanks for reading and feel free to respond.
See ya.

I have 45 units toward a Masters in Voc Rehab Counseling but life issues put a kabosh on it. I'm not good at it either...LOL! I'd be honored to have you in my network, Al. Take care and hope you are finding great success here. Let me know if I can be of help with feedback, critique, etc I don't know what I'm doing yet with building websites, but I'm going thru bootcamp and learning.

Hi Al, glad to connect with you here.

You sure have a full life going on.
I once was enrolled in a psychology degree program, one of several degree programs I never completed. Completing them that was never the reason I signed up - I just like to enroll in things for a while & learn what I wish to learn. This habit died off a little when tertiary education was no longer free in my country.

I still keep half an eye on a few psychological areas of interest. Specifically 2 subjects, one being psychovisual studies, & the other, bipolar type 2 news.

Hope to see you around the community Al.
Regards,
damien

Your writing has a lot of feeling in it ... and as I discovered that sort of fits your profile. We're both retired and both relatively new to WA. I'd like to stay connected. Who knows we might be able to help each other out now and then. Wishing you all the success you desire.

Well, Hello Dennis.. Your profile was enjoyed very much. There is a lot between the lines that reveal the inner you. That's refreshing!

You mention that you see some commonalities between us. To point out just a few - Working with smaller company management styles are much more relationship. driven as opposed to dictatorial. I need to see the big picture and work out of the box. The corporate culture, values, and infrastructure are far removed from what is important to me. Mental engagement in retirement is an absolute must. Retirement should not be a stop sign, but a green light moving into another fulfilling stage of life with its own rewards. WA is a most positive venture, realistic and honest. Anyone who has a black lab has excellent judgement.

I hope you write a lot of blogs. I'm sure I will enjoy and learn in reading them. Connect with me any time the spirit so moves you. You can count on me. - Al Hurley, urtimelyal

Hi Al, thanks for adding me to your network... I know Larry recommend that you check me out and I thank him for that; Id also like to mention just in case he didn't.

My other "job" outside of WA is a professional website designer and I'd like to share my knowledge and experience with you if you need it. Think of me as a business resource that you can come to when you need answers.

I can't promise I will be able to answer every question or solve every problem you may come across but it's not a bad idea to be friends with a developer when you run your own online business right... cheers :)

Yeah, Cheers. I've used BlueVoda and Register.com's Web.com for website building (and hosting) but found them less than favorable. I am excited about Word Press and will seek out your advice as needed.

You are going to be a great asset to this WA community, Buck, and they will respond with graciousness, gratitude, and their own helps sent your way..That includes me! Let's stay close at hand as friends, as I am sure that will develop.

Hi Sharon, Thanks for the swift reply. My website? Thanks for reminding me. I've built sites before using VodaHost and web.com, but never WP..Right now am helping a few WA members with their design and text content and have not begun mine yet with WP. Very soon, Though, I do have a few blogs up, if you'd like to take a look.

I am working on a few more blogs such as Procrastination - The Deadly Enemy, a series of communication blogs, each with different categorical skill sets. I have a very large portfolio of soft skill (personal growth) training events that I have written and facilitated around the country. Most of them are relevant to what we do in WA and should be helpful.

Thanks, again. - Al Hurley

Hello Al,

Your message on my wall resonated with me.Thank you for taking the time to leave an insightful response to my profile. I'm still seeking to help even when I have no idea what I'm doing. The fact is, I've never had anyone really help me, in a mentorship kind of way, so I seek to be that to others.

Your simultaneous careers seems quite interested and I look forward to speaking with you further regarding the psychology of...well, all of this!

Of course, I have a ton of questions and I'm here to make a difference in my life and for my daughter. Thanks again.

Thanks, Jae. Before beginning on the book, I am currently looking for a top notch publishing house such as How the Stomach Turns Publications, located in Juneau, Alaska. And, naturally, I will be demanding a HUGE retainer. On top of that will be an all expense paid trip to Juneau to interview the publisher himself, Mr. Josh Turncoat. I must be convinced that he will be up to this daunting task.
Well wishes to you, Jae.

Thank You, nking. I sure will. I am at the point now of attacking Word Press and building my site. I have built sites before on BlueVoda and web.com and realize that it is not enought to simply have a site. It must be efficiently marketed. There are many ways of doing that. I will avail myself of your expertise with gratitude. - Al Hurley

Thanks for the follow back Al, and for understanding my strange sense of humour a short while ago.

urtimelyal Premium
Once you get to know me, you won't think your sense of humor is so strange after all. Even my family looks at me and just shakes their heads. Sometimes I bust out laughing but might be reluctant to say what I'm I'm thinking for fear that there might be swooshing noise of things flying over their heads.

3. Set yourself some goals that you would like to work towards. These should be financial goals along with non-financial goals. You can list your financial goals by adding them to the following discussion here. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started/what-are-your-money-goals By doing this it tells me that you really are serious about making money online and not just curious.
