About Wildrice
Joined July 2008
Hey there,

I'm a "web guy" from Houston, Texas, and actually back on WA after quite some time away. I ran my own web development business for about 10 years, and realized that while the work is rewarding (still is :), the money was not so great as a sole proprietor. In early 2014, I joined the workforce once again, and have enjoyed the stability of income so far, but I now completely understand that I will never have financial freedom while working for someone else.

I've been interested in pursuing multiple streams of income for some time now, so I'm looking forward to seeing how WA, and online marketing, will work for me. While I currently have very little online marketing experience, I'm fascinated by it and hopeful that I can turn this into a full-time business, and have the financial freedom that I've been working towards for a while now.

I love the idea of a community of people (WA'ers) dedicated to the common goal of online marketing success, so I'm glad to be here, and hoping to find success and help others achieve it as well!

You've been at this for a long time. How is it working for you? And what tips can you give me as a starter.

Honestly, I'm on again, off again ... time is not something I have enough of. That said, I can say that the biggest piece of advice I can offer is that you not get overwhelmed by all the bells and whistles the site has to offer, start here and just go forward at a pace that works for you, and ask questions when you have them.

The community here is outstanding and always willing to help, as everyone was where you are now when they got here. Don't rush the process ... just go through the training.

Best of luck!

No worries ... the community is super friendly and super helpful. The trick is not to allow yourself to get overwhelmed by all the bells and whistles. So it's good to just take a look around and get a sense of things and where stuff is.

When you think you're ready, just start with the first course called Getting Started in the left of your WA screen.

When you get stuck, don't stay stuck ... just ask for help, and many people from the community are always happy to answer. Remember, no person is an island.

Best of luck!

Hi Jason, it’s a pleasure to meet me, lol.

No seriously, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for following me. I’m pretty impressed with WA training and I think we will find a gold mine of information. Hmmm, seems like geniuses like us tend to gather in the same place (lol).

Anyway, here’s wishing you all my best for your success with online marketing. Please feel free to send me a private message if there is anything I can do for you. You may also want to check out my WA profile blog posts as there is some interesting and informative information there.

Sorry for the late response. I've been under the weather and I'm just now getting to my back log of email.

Thanks GrampaMike ... nice to meet me as well :) No worries, getting yourself better and working toward the #1 spot in Google requires your full attention, so it's all good.

Hi wild, spent a lot of time in Houston, Coming to Galveston in May for a few days. I managed a trucking terminal over by the Intercont. Air Port. Miss it but someday I will leave snow country for good. If I can help just let me know.

Enjoy Galveston ... I have family originally from there, so I spent some time on it's beaches and in West Bay while growing up. Although, it's not quite the same place today, it's still a gem of a city. Thanks for the offering ... best.
