About USVet
Joined December 2013
Hi Everybody,

I suspect I might be one of the older coots in the group. A little about my background. I started out my corporate career as a product development engineer in the HVAC industry. About 15 years ago transitioned into Marketing in the consumer electronics industry. While I am not a complete newbie to internet marketing, I am humble enough to admit that there is a lot I do not know. That is why I am here.

My initial goal is to build an online business from a part-time start-up to a full-time occupation that replaces "my cube job". This not only would allow me to retire from corporate early, but give me something rewarding for me to do as I approach and enter retirement. The mobility of operating an online business intrigues me immensely.

I look forward to learn much from WA and all of you. In turn, if you have any engineering or traditional product marketing questions, hit me up. :)
USVet's Goals 3
Money Goals
#1 - I would be happy if I were making $1000 per week.
#2 - I would be ecstatic if I were making $2500 per week.
#3 - I plan to initially and realistically devote 15-20 hours per week to my business. As my business scales and I am transitioning between "happy" and "ecstatic", I would quit my day job and devote as much time required to maintain a great work/life balance to remain content & ecstatic. Life will be great!!!

I can see it myself, friend. To finally have something that works for you, to be your own boss and never have to feel like you're disposable. I know you can make those dreams of yours come true. Never give up, show everyone that you can do it!

So awesome Tom, I know from experience that goals are what lead us to success. Work relentlessly in pursuit of these goals and they CAN and WILL happen.

In fact, wipe failure out of your mind right now. It simply won't happen. You have too much help, support and an entire community of help behind you to ever let that happen :)

If you need anything going forward, just let me known and I will be happy to give you a hand.

Hi Tom, welcome to WA. Thanks for following back. I am an engineer too before switching to online business after my layoff in 2011. It is good to start early when you have a job so that when anything happens, you are ready for it. I regret that I did not do that. But, it is not too late to start. I know it's gonna take 2-5 years for me to succeed if I put my effort into it. So, I wish you success in what you're doing and see you around in WA.
