I'm interested in two things: your success and mine.  By "success" I don't just mean your coffers being filled, nor do I mean that your teeth are so white you blind polar bears and your six-pack abs make washboards jealous...

If you have the secrets to the washboard abs, PM me.  I'm all ears...

Success means a number of things to me:



a feeling of worth...

a well-earned sense of accomplishment..

contentment in a job well-done...

Success in my ears sounds like my wife telling me she loves me for the eight thousandth time, it's a classic ballad that doesn't grow old....

Success is looking at my kids and hearing them have a genuine concern for each other...and hearing them all call me "daddy" no matter how old they are...

And sure: success means keeping the lights on, doing what you love, and then some.  But the priorities are such that, quite frankly, if all I had was a hovel and a dirt floor - but I had my kids' hearts and respect, my wife's affection...

Smells like success to me.  I can live on that.

Success is knowing why you are here, and that goes beyond money.

In the meantime - OF COURSE I care about making money (since I don't live in Willy Wonka's castle...), so the majority of my hubs will focus on:

Making money online


Internet marketing

And all of that comes with a free pickle.  (Dill, of course.)

Hope you enjoy.  Don't worry, I'm not full of hot air, and I'm not just here on HubPages to turn a quick buck, I actually care about helping people.  Makes me a bit weird in the IM space since most don't actually know what they're talking about on SEO, or don't care to help others succeed genuinely.

I am a retired freelance copywriter and article marketer, got my start on Elance.  I'm a genuinely street-savvy marketer by trade full-time.  I make my living on a passive income from my own copywriting online, mostly from websites focues on reviewing physical products.  Currently I'm releasing a book on WordPress SEO at my blog for anyone interested: TheAverageGenius.net.  The book will be released shortly (it's July 29th, 2011 as I'm writing this).
