News Flash: There is something amazing happening right now as you're reading this. A total transition, a financial revolution, a Massive Sea-Change if you will... and you'll want to be part of it. It's already happened, but it is still going on at the same time and will continue to happen as all the dominoes have to tumble. You can see more about it here and kept up to date with the latest findings here.
Hello Fellow Onliner, in case you didn't notice my name before you arrived on this page... my name is Bill Straub. If you've been online for years, you may or may not recognize my name or my nickname Team24k (more about my nickname later).
I noticed some of the talented people here on IBOToolbox / IBOSocial have made a nice video to introduce themselves. I'd like to do the same and have a nice video introduction for you to watch and listen to, but I have a stutter and other minor speech and voice problems that make it almost impossible for me or someone else to record my voice and have it turn out passable enough for public listening. I've recorded myself and when I play it back and listen to it, it just drives me crazy to listen to... so I don't want to put anyone else through that either. Maybe I'm just too critical of myself, but I can't stand the thought of having a recording of myself out there in public... if it isn't at least of average quality. I'm not comfortable blabbing about myself anyway and this online thing isn't about me... it's about you.
If you want to hear my voice and talk with me, just skype me or give me a telephone call. It will usually go to voicemail, so you can call me 24/7... and I do return calls as long as you're not going to pitch me, so I will return your call as soon a possible. If you have a question, just leave your the question on my voicemail - I've been around long enough to know what "I have a question for you" means... ("If I can show you how to?" LOL). You only use that question on beginners :)
And this Facebook and Google Plus and some other social sites drive me crazy with "What town do live in now?" - "What is your hometown?" - "What school did you go to?" "Where do you work?" - "Birthday?" - etc. That is private information and is not necessary for the public (or anyone) to know... be careful putting that kind of information online. If some criminal gets enough pieces of private info on you, they can steal your identity. There are thousands of schools and towns out there, so that info is meaningless to us (unless you went to a famous school or live in a well known place). I really don't care where someone is from, where they went to school, etc. - as long as they are a decent person (they don't have to be perfect), that is good enough for me.
Now about my online career / business career... When I was a kid, my mother was an Amway distributor - so I remember LOC, SA8, Nutrilite, etc. LOL. I got involved with Amway back in (1991 I think?) and it didn't really work out great. Then I got involved with Amway again, when they put up their Quixtar website in 1999 and it was ok. Then I got into Seasilver in 2002 and did fairly well (who remembers Seasilver?). After that I got into many things along the way, I had success with some and no success with others. I got and listened to all the CDs - Jim Rohn, Jeffery Combs, Lisa Kitter Combs, Jerry Clark, Dani Johnson, Aaron Rashkin, Todd Falcone, Dale Calvert, etc.
I own about two (2) handfuls of domains... too many for one person to create content for and be effective. You can click on them here on the left side of my IBO Social Profile here. In February of 2004, I purchased my first two domain names... Team24k.com and Moneyizer.com - that is where I got my nickname Team24k LOL, one of my first networking partners told me "Never stop using Team24k, some people will remember that years from now... but they might forget your name if they don't see it for some years.". I tried to buy BillStraub.com in 2004, but someone already owned it... the funny thing is - to this day they have never used it as a redirect or put any content on it, it has been just "Parked" since at least 2004. I finally just did get a BillStraub domain name that I like, but I haven't had a chance to put any content on it yet. In 2006 I bought Webcashmarketing.com and a few others.
Well, that's it for now... I may have forgot a thing or two that I wanted to add, but I can come back and add it later.
