About Westho
Joined October 2015
After a long unwanted absense I am back thanks to Kyle and a great Christmas gift from my wife--this new membership! It was terrible having to leave the WA community and all the wonderful people I meet around the world, Their help was great but communicating with them was even better.

At close to 80 years of age I must be a WA senior citizen and as a retiree for the past 21 years I look forward to another chance at WA. I have tried several unsuccessful online income plans. My belief is Wealthy Affiliates will work for me. In my few months as a Premium member, I experienced better training than ever as well as fantastic support from members.

My experiences include 17+ years as a manufacturing manager rising from supervisor to Division Manager, 15 years as owner of a manufacturer’s representative agency reaching 30 million in sales, and six years as an Army officer serving as a Ranger with the 82nd Airborne and the 8th Infantry Divisions

I have learned much from these life’s lessons and hope that sharing my experiences of 78 years may help others. I also have studied many famous and successful people and am continuing to travel a path of learning and spirituality.

Just for fun I am listing some of the different work I have done beyond my career work listed above:
During college years, I worked in full-service Gas stations ( I think they are extinct),cleaned ash room of a power plant chimney, stocked groceries, worked in manufacturing as a worker, and stripped the parking and crosswalks in my hometown ( no automatic equipment just a wood form, paint, and a brush.

Since I retired I have been a Realtor, appraiser, recruiter, car salesperson, and finally a certified personal trainer

These jobs have indeed given me a world of different experiences in my 78 years, not only the from the work but more importantly from the PEOPLE I have met!

Hello, and welcome to the "post-graduate" part of WA! Going premium is the best decision you could make. The classrooms, additional certification courses after Level 1, and live video classes are the absolute BEST, and the community is so awesome, I've really no words to describe it, except ... awesome LOL.
If there's anything I can assist with, just holler!

Walter and Gayle: Thank you so much for your follow. I appreciate it very much and welcome to my network of fabulous WAers. My network is about two things.

1) I encourage every follower to regularly post a blog with WORTHY content to other WAers. Obviously, if you blog once a day your ranking will quickly move up in WA. However, please understand that I only blog approximately once every two weeks and in the back of my mind I am only blogging to my followers in an attempt to provide the best example (of my writing skills) that I can. Why! Your website will only be successful if you post quality pieces to it. Frequently, that requires that you learn to write even better than you do now.

2) I try to HELP my followers every time they run into a snag with their websites to the best of my ability. If that is not good enough, I will refer you to other HELPERS at WA that will definitely be able to help you. So if you run into a problem here at WA, please let me try to assist you.

Please remember that Kyle, Carson, you, Gayle, and I are not WA. WA is thousands of students learning the concepts of e-commerce and the hundreds of WAers that learn to blog regularly for the delight of the community as they attempt to hone their various writing skills.

If I am not already, I will look forward to FOLLOWING you also. Welcome to My Network! DAN

That is because this includes the transaction fees (which is why there is a $1 difference there) and the fact that we round to the nearest full day (in this case, you used 1 full day).

Hey Walter, just wanted to pop back and see how you are doing. I noticed that you haven't quite set-up your account yet, just wanted to let you know there is a video on how to do this if there is any confusion. Setting up your account will lead to much better help here within the community as people feel like they can connect with you better (with an image and a description)

Just wanted to make sure that all was good and if you do need a hand with anything, just let me know! :)
