    Officially Retired
    or retarded

    After 15 years in affiliate marketing, I retired June 1st. Moving to a condo on the ocean in Florida on Tuesday.

    The old timers know that I credit all my success to dumb luck, Affiliate Summit... and everything I learned here at ABW.

    Wanted to make sure I said thank you... couldn't have done it without you.

    All My Best,
    Billy Kay

    Well, if there is no "punch line" this time, let me extend heartfelt congratulations. Enjoy, Billy Kay. Enjoy.

    BTW - BS on that line. We all know there was hard work (and a lot of it) to make the "dumb luck" happen.

    Good luck BK, but my guess is that you won't stay retired for too long. Let us know what trouble you decide to get into next.

    There's gambling in Florida? What are you going to do with your free time?

    I'm from the East coast - Long Island

    Our temporary stay in Vegas... has been 14 years. Jesse's graduation ceremony is tomorrow (at the Orleans casino)

    I want him to see water... grass... the real world!

    I closed my merchant program 2 months ago. Been closing down my aff sites one at a time

    Original plan was to wonder America with my guitar, but son isn't ready to be all alone.

    I was offered some OPM gigs, I took one yesterday

    Was offered a consulting gig... thinking about it

    My last Amazon book did well, so I'm starting another one "What I Did Right"

    So I'll still be around to kick around for awhile

    Best/Billy

    Been away, now I'm back. Not as much, but I'm back & starting from scratch. Where I was, was fantastic. Where I am now, less so. Things have changed, become harder. So have I. Game ON!!!

    Well, I "retired" in 2000, and I've never put in as many regular "work" hours as I have since.

    And, now that we know the whole story, Billy will be hard at it in his new role, with his evil taskmasters watching over him right, Billy?
