I'm a proud father of 7 and husband of 1 since December 28th 2000. I love to blog and have been in network and affiliate marketing since January 2003. I love fishing, and walks in the park with the kids and look forward to getting the opportunity to take them all camping one day.

I have been a blog based affiliate marketer since January 2003 and helped build a search engine and social media hybrid along the way that had more than 3 million monthly visits on 600,000 unique users. All of this built on content and social media partnerships including my then daily blog MyViralBlog which is a strange feeling because it is now someone else blog.

In 2012 I had a collapse in both mental and physical health related to years of pulling 100 hour work weeks between a JOB and my home business. I lost just about everything except my strong and loving wife and 7 wonderful children.

I now have social anxiety and bipolar depression and don't go outside as much as I would love to do, instead preferring solace to crowds. My blogs have lacked consistency and thus a lot of revenue lost but I am getting better. Last September a day before my 43rd Birthday I went to my first Arizona Diamondbacks game the same day we clinched the Wild Card and Home Advantage for that game. It was liberating and my blogs are liberating and theaputic as I find my way back into the world.

Hi Andy,
Thanks for the follow.
Your wealth of experience together with the training at WA will skyrocket you to develop your business here to whatever level you want. Slow down, take it one step at a time, take a deep breath every now and then.
I have found a good diet also assists in maintaining the energy, and motivation to move forward.
As you are now doing, have some fun and enjoy your experience here at WA.

Thank you. What the brain knows I use to find hard to practice now I find it vital to practice good health. In the last 18 months, I have lost over 40 pounds, started getting out of the house again, started taking my meds as I should most of the time and eating better. That's huge steps and I'm not done yet.

Yes, it’s quite a journey. With Cancer, 2 Strokes, Heart Valve replacement, Aorta replacement plus other things what I put in my body has a great impact on my well being. The cancer I am treating naturally, no chemo, no surgery, no radiation, only diet. To keep my mind calm I do some meditation and exercise, and for me that is a big challenge. The saying “you are what you eat” has really been true for me. Getting rest also allows my body to heal.
So my friend, keep positive and if there is any help I can give you just ask.
Health is a constant battle needing all the resources I can muster. For me it consumes a lot of my thinking time and I have to constantly work at keeping on top of it.
You sound like you are getting a hold on your life and WA can help in giving you direction. Enjoy your journey,
Rob

Hello Andy!
Great to have you follow me here at Wealthy Affiliate! Now your follower!
Very impressive credentials. Sounds like you are full of energy and drive. But you are right, this human body can only take so much.

This is why once a year now for 3-4 months I escape the fast world of America and hop on down to the Rock In The Tropics where I spent my first 17 years...and relax.

The best to you here at WA and beyond!

Joe

Sounds like an amazing life, haven't made it outside the U.S. other than Northern Mexico but no place special. We did, however, use to winter in Florida and South Georgia when I did detailing on Over the Road Trucks. It was fun and the fishing was out of this world.

Andrew, I want to apologize if you felt I was being overly negative about Webtalk. I am just cautious about those on here who have barely started not at a position such as yourself. I have been in Networking groups way before social media started and saw new programs coming on every day and enticing members away before even getting any momentum in their present group. Just presenting honestly an opinion. Ever since my presence has been noted I get invites every day but at my age retired no way I want to keep adding anything. In my consulting business, it's ridiculous the number of offers for advertising hitting my clients daily, so I am always watching their budget and ROI, and their expectations even if free. Take care

I fully understand. I have been in online marketing since 2003 and spent 14 years prior to that in management and entrepreneurship and know full well how a person can get bombarded with distraction. Just having multiple domain names I get calls nearly every day offering web design or SEO, directory listings, and advertising management. I see over 200 scams a week and have seen more than my share of failed social networks.

My specialty though is in social media marketing and management and while too many affiliates see Webtalk as a threat to Facebook it is actually more aligned to take early market share from LinkedIn with far more business focused tools. I have been watching the developments and these people are if anything too cautious, wanting near perfection before taking the bubble wrap off on the finished product. They have millions of dollars riding on the project and have been moving in the tech circles for 8 years building up investors and developing proprietary systems while racking up numerous awards.

It's my firm belief that regardless of the exact market share captured Webtalk joins the top 4 social media networks in 5 years or less. I see them as powerful tools. A chance to get in and be a network influence from the early stages and build authority for my blog and business. It does the work of other media which allows me to focus more time on it and still accomplish my goals so if anything I can simplify my social networking instead of adding more to it.

No offense taken, you are cautious and focused which is admirable.

Thanks for the reply and communication. Since you have been here longer than I have, should these things be more carefully discussed because of the policy of spam here at WA? Opening the door even slightly will embolden others to discuss other opportunities. Just a thought based on policy

We are fine having discussions but sharing links is strictly prohibited in the public forum. We all have research to do and if we can start it closer to home we may be able to further boost each other toward success.
