I have dealt with cows most all of my life, and sometimes would much rather be out on the grasslands enjoying the slight breeze, watching over and caring for those 4 legged beasts. I still do live on a ranch in central northern New Mexico. Married to my sweetheart, Kat. She and I have been together almost 2 years, and enjoying life here in the outback of New Mexico.

Enter from stage left...Wealthy Affiliate University. I wasn't prepared for what I found there. First time to the site and I was completely overwhelmed with that busy, busy, busy website. I haven't much tech knowledge or marketing experience. I was wondering to myself...what in the world is an old balding cowpoke doing here?

Well, let me tell you something! I went from overwhelmed to excited in a two shakes of a rats tail! I noticed that new people were entering the site and saying 'Howdy' on the general chat line on the right. People has all sorts of questions that were being answered by various folks.

I saw a list on the left, that included training...Whoa!! Stop the train!! Training? Click....read. Click.....Read. I soon figured out that I could take 'courses' on Keyword Searches, FTP (don't know what that is yet!), website building, and many more topics. New ones, old ones and there were even blogs where people voiced their problems and then in the comments below there would be answers.

I was hooked! A niche? I knew almost immediately what my two niches would be. First, my wife and I love dogs! Not just any dogs, mind you, Great Danes! Those gentle giants that are way too smart for their own good!

My other niche will probably surprise you. I have a passion about how employees are treated and managed in the workplace. Long story made semi-short. I once worked at a large feedlot, and had my first dealings with the worst kind of manager ever! Since then, almost 30 years now, I read and studied various managers, programs, and books, so that I might not make the same fatal mistakes.

So, this ole cowboy turned Internet Marketer will sign off, now because I know I have classes waiting for me over at WAU. Ya'll have a great time here at SA, and I will see ya around.

The Olympics are in full swing. I enjoy watching the running events, especially the 100 M, 200 M, and the Olympic marathon of 26.2 miles. I would venture to say that you have heard of an athlete from Jamaica, named Usain Bolt. On the other hand think of the favorite…
