About Zentrader
Joined February 2014
Wealthy affiliate held appeal as a way to really learn about the online commerce I've heard so much about for the last 20 plus years. I knew I was missing something and I think WA may be the oracle I've been searching for...

A little about me: I am a real estate investor and develop financial derivatives as an independent consultant. I also have a non-profit in the works so I will have ample opportunity to give back. I've done the silly meetings in corporate board rooms, but I was a wilderness ranger in my younger days. I am an outdoor enthusiast and love forests,mountains, and oceans more than I can describe. Conversely I enjoy living in downtown Chicago and love the energy and variety the city provides.
So that's a 60,000 foot view of me. If you happen across my profile feel free to leave a quick message or some of your sage advice.
Cheers! - Greg.

You have a great outlook Greg I admire that. You are certainly in the right place to educate yourself on internet marketing, I have found the training here is second to none. These guys have created quite a nice posture for their business to date. You won't go wrong if you take the training seriously and do the action steps.
Sincerely Mike

Hello Janice - thank you for taking the time to send a note; I apologize for being remiss in my response. Loved your profile. My Mom's family is from Oxfordshire originally - I'm a UK transplant and its nice to see some Brits on here. Maybe we crossed paths on one of many past business trips on BA (San Francisco to Heathrow to Hamburg).
I really think your knowledge and experience as a hypnotherapist and interest in psychology offers a wonderful source of knowledge for some great websites. I am roughing out some ideas for some pages dedicated to meditation and some philosophy that can be related to the law of attraction you mentioned.
You do realize, if you become an internet self help sensation, you may be condemned.to a life of many long days at tropical resorts around the world.... Let's hope so!
All The Best!!

Hi there Kyle ~ I do have one question as I prepare to hit the premium button. I notice I can make a comment, someone can reply, but I can't reply back. Its not a huge problem, and I assume you are trying to avoid endless strings in pages aimed at sharing and helping. I wondered if I was missing anything in that regard.

Also, I am committing to the bootcamp as I try to focus on a niche - I simply have too many I would like to address (the curse of diverse interests).

Thank you for starting this community. I feel really good about what I am learning.

You have to reply to the high level of the comment, ie, the initial comment. I know this isn't all that intuitive and we have a Reply button coming to every comment very soon (will help make more sense of this).

So click the Reply on my initial comment here and you will be able to respond within this thread. Hope this helps.

Zentrader,

Thank you for your comments, that is what I am looking for.I am trying to cover the beginning stages of deciding to take up the sport. So I will add some additional information into my about me page in the coming days perhaps you will come across something you where looking for that I have jet to provide.

Zentrader Premium
Hi there - I hope I was helpful and not too critical. You mention a challenge with your knees; Did you have replacements, rehab, how long, was cycling on your mind during that time? I am curious at what point in your life cycling became appealing and what event or something you saw, etc, made you lean in that direction.
The basic things also, like: Valerie lives in ?, with ? and was ???. I guess in an "about me" page, am looking for a little biography.
I think what you have so far comes after that information and is a tremendously well done lead into more information about cycling.
I hope that helps.

Hi Greg...thanks for the follow, and right back at you. And you must LOVE snow if you live in Chicago - had your share this year, to be sure. I am also a wanderer who started the journey in southern Indiana, but has lived in Yellowstone Park, San Francisco, Denver, Louisville, northern Indiana and now Florida...with a couple of stops in between. There is just so MUCH to see and enjoy.

I think you have found a home here at WA...will be anxious to see where your trail leads you. Perhaps back to the wildnerness, eh? Welcome aboard and good luck in all your endeavors.

Zentrader Premium
Thanks for the kind words GatorGal Suz! I too lived in San Francisco - ahh fog! I spent almost two years waking up to the beauty of Yosemite valley too - no money but the best view for your morning coffee. I've lived all over the Us and Europe and surprisingly Chicago can hold its own (probably all the transplanted northern Californians classing up the place - ha). My folks live in Northern Vermont, so I don't complain about Chicago snow - kids stuff.
i know WA will help me hit my goals so I can spend more time enjoying some mountain top views. Thanks again - and best wishes to you!

Thanks Rich! I am still wading through the training material, so without getting too far ahead of myself, I am really looking for advice on the best way to get my ranking up. In roughly a month you have done a really impressive job of establishing yourself. I plan to try my hand at a blog or two with some recommendations for new members based on my first week experiences. I also have a few people I would like to refer once I sign up for premium. I dunno - seems like things that will help the community
Reply
regularguy Premium
Your ranking will come up naturally. I enjoy helping fellow members and in doing so I am actually helping myself. The ranking is calculated on multiple factors (which I am not sure what is what). However, community communication is a major one. Just focus on your training first and as you learn then you can help the new members that join after you.
