About Yunguns321
Joined June 2019

I'm Joey from Central North Carolina (home of the North Carolina Zoo!). I was born in Tampa, Florida. We moved, when I was 5 years old (1973), to Anniston, Alabama and left there when I was 11 (1979). I've been here in NC ever since.

I've been interested in Affiliate Marketing for years. I've tried all the usual ways to make money online, including doing surveys for next to nothing and trying to get "hired" to work-at-home jobs. I managed to make about $1000 over 2 months with Leapforce, rating websites, before I was let go for no reason with no explanation at all. I also made $100 from Google AdSense, but that took me 2 years! I have decided to actually put in the time to learn and grow a real online business.

I'm 51 years old and a husband of 26 years (as of August 31, 2019) and father to 3 grown kids ages 23, 20, and 18. I was the baritone/lead singer for a Southern Gospel group for more than 25 years (starting in 1991). And singing is in my soul!

I also write fiction (since I was 16), mostly Speculative short stories (think Twilight Zone, The X-Files). I tried, for years, to get something published in magazines but never made it. So, I decided to go the 21st century way. I have one of my short stories published on Amazon. I even made the cover myself, which is pretty evident when you see it. LOL. It's called, "Self Portrait," and my author name is J. C. Phillips in case you want to look it up. It's listed at .99c but I'm going to make it free, add more stories and do a little promotion, which I haven't done at all so far.

I was diagnosed as Diabetic (Type 2) about 10 years ago. It's not an easy road but it is doable. It takes a lot of lifestyle changes and that can be just as hard on the family. I have been able to get my A1C down from 14 to under 6, near non-diabetic range. A big factor in that was losing over 50 pounds. Definitely a long journey there.

I am strongly passionate about Gospel Music, history (especially American history), as well as sports (mainly auto racing, basketball and Major League Baseball), and Science Fiction (yes, I am a Trekkie) specifically the classic stuff (although I do enjoy some newer stuff like The X-Files and Stargate). I have a Science Fiction blog but I didn't start it with the intention to make money. I also have a huge fascination in true crime, especially serial killers. I'm hoping to make my passions highly profitable!

I've heard a ton of good stuff about Wealthy Affiliate and I don't recall finding anything negative, except from those promoting other programs. (of course they would berate a better program).

I look forward to working with and interacting with everybody here at WA.

Here's to all WA members success!!

Awesome goals Joey!!

Now that you have goals to work towards you are going to be able to really focus on the training. Take action on what you learn and the lessons will take you towards achieving your goals.

I look forward to working with you and having you as an active part of the Wealthy Affiliate Community.

Those are some very achievable goals Joey, and once you reach them, you'll be primed and ready to go beyond. If you stick to the plan and dedicate that amount of time to training and taking action every day, then you are definitely going to start to see some results!

Thanks for the follow. Nathaniell's articles on his website are what convinced me to join WA. He definitely has a wealth of knowledge that he freely shares. I am definitely going with the sports history niche, probably Major League Baseball and your idea for the domain name. Once again, thanks for your suggestion!

You are so welcome. All the best to you.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Joey!

Nathaniell here - you probably remember me from my site One More Cup of Coffee. I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started building your online business.

Right now, there are just two super important things you need to know.

1) If you ask questions and interact with the community you are far more likely to see results with your business. The support here at WA is the best in the industry...please take advantage of it.

2) You can talk to me about anything! I've been a member for 9 years now, so I'll be able to personally answer any of your questions about WA or starting an online business. Leave a message on my profile https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/nathaniell or respond directly to this message!

There are a ton of other features worth exploring, but they are explained in the main training. Time to get started on the first lesson!

PS. Did you know that you'll already have your website built by lesson 4? Crazy, I know!

PPS. See who has already made money by following WA's training: ★ ★ ★ Access Your Bonuses! ★ ★ ★
