About Me

AlHello. My name is Al. Thanks for checking out this site, it means a lot to me.

A little bit about myself: I am now over 50. My fiftieth birthday was a surprise to myself and I’m almost glad that there wasn’t a “surprise” party to go along with it. It’s quite shocking to wake up one day and realize that you have become a half a century old. Where did the time go?

That said, I think I’ve accomplished quite a lot. I have been quite productive over the years and have owned and built a few successful businesses. I have had the good fortune of mainly working for myself over that time, except for the first few part time and early carrier jobs. As an owner, I think I have seen it all. Many people think they would love to be their own boss, but its not all its made out to be. For one, nothing happens unless you make it happen. And you can take time off any time you want, which is why most owner/operators work more hours and harder than almost anyone else. The bottom line is that although you’d think you would have the freedom to do almost anything you want, there are almost no end of pitfalls and things to keep you occupied. And failure is lurking around at every corner. And then there are people you have to manage. Don’t get me started….

Sounds like a lot of fun, I know. There are a lot of reasons why I would subject myself to this sort of business model. For one, it has provided me with a certain level of material comfort. But each day I must go to the office and get it done, only I have the added responsibility to encourage the others who work for me to do the same. A pay check can be a very effective motivating tool.

And although I am thankful I have a job that, for the most part, I enjoy, it is still a job. I have successfully bought myself a J.O.B. and I am my own boss. Hooray for me.

That is why I am so happy I decided to embark on a career in the online world. See my profile in Wealthy Affiliate here.

      Yeah, its surprising how many people have this misconception about becoming “an expert” at something. Thanks for your comment, John.

    Al, I listened to your review and I was wondering what kind of assistance can you give me to set up this opportunity. I am not technical and need help with the set up.

    Thanks

    André

      Hi Andre, thanks for your inquiry and interest. The technical part seems to be what hinders most online endeavours. I’ll reply privately so I can be a bit more helpful.

    I really enjoy doing research online. I will dig through to find whatever I’m looking for. I’ve helped a lot of my friends this way. Is there a way to make some money doing this? Thanks for any assistance you could offer.

      Hi Patsy, thanks for your comment and inquiry. I would suggest getting some training online and then you’ll be able to discern what information is most helpful to those who aren’t informed. You could then offer services in social marketing or SEO, as those both involve “research” to some degree. Wealthy Affiliate can help fill in these gaps. Best of success.
