Who is Fred Raley?

And why is it important to YOU?

Thanks for dropping in!

Obviously you came in to my site here by seeing one of my internet advertisements, forum posts, business cards or some other method.  The important thing is YOU ARE HERE!

Let me introduce myself by giving a little background about me and my family and let you know what I do.

Background: I was born in 1954 in Pine Bluff AR, a small town about 45 miles south of Little Rock if you are familiar with the area.  I grew up there with my parents and sister.  My sister and her family still reside there.   My mom was a “stay at home” mom until my sister and I graduated from High School and then she went back to work to contribute to my parents retirement savings.  My dad owned a furniture store on Pine Street and worked there from his discharge from the Navy after WWII until the early 1990s when he sold the business and retired.  My parents have both passed away but not without leaving me with decades of great memories that will last a lifetime.

Fred Raley

Great Sport

Sports: I played sports from the third grade on through High School, starting out with football then in Junior high got into Track and Basketball.  I was far better in track on the short races (100yd, 220yd and 440yd dash) and associated relays and got some state-wide recognition for my efforts there.  I still follow Redskins Football and the Arkansas Razorbacks in football.

United States Naval Academy

My Alma Mater

College and Early Jobs: I graduated from High School (Go Zebras!) in 1972 and immediately went to the US Naval Academy at Annapolis MD.  There I majored in Mathematics, played intramural sports and basically worked to keep my head above water until graduation in 1976 and entry into Admiral Rickover’s Nuclear Power Program with a target of getting into the U. S. Navy Submarine force.  I got to my first submarine in 1977 and was on submarines and related duties until 1991 when I got assigned to the Washington DC area in an office which built submarine equipment.  That set me up with skills for an orderly transition to civilian life.  It also gave me the opportunity to meet, date and marry my wife.  I retired in 2000 after 24 years of US Navy active duty and Christina and I settled down here in the DC area.

During the early days of my Navy career, I got hold of a book by a man named Joe Karbo, The Lazy Man’s Way to Riches. It was a short paperback about how to make a mint in mail order and was a good read.  You can get a great updated version here: The Lazy Man’s Way to Riches: How to Have Everything in the World You Really Want!

Although I  never did anything with the mail order ideas in the book, Mr. Karbo had an interesting side note about keeping a positive attitude, controlling your thoughts, keeping anger under wraps and things like that.  He taught me a method of controlling my thoughts and feelings “on purpose” so I did not have to experience the bad thoughts if I did not want to.  It works to this day!  I read that book a hundred times if I read it once because I thought, “If I can get control of my mind, there is no limit to what I can do!”

… and I was right.

Piles of Money

Piles of Money

Search for Financial Independence: Joe Karbo’s, The Lazy Man’s Way to Riches, put the seed in my brain about the benefits from establishing your own business and working from home.  I’ll never forget that book.  It ranks right up there with Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad, Poor Dad. I bought tons of books, information papers, work-at-home guides and more but really could not figure out what to do.

When you have a few days, I’ll tell you how many business models I tried and failed in.  I also had some huge successes!  Suffice to say, I learned a LOT by failing and succeeding which I have now put together in the Fred’s Power Business System.  Check it out.  It should solve all of your marketing and income problems with ease.

Conclusion: It is vital that you get substantial income streams going soon so you don’t become a victim of the business world.  Visit the Fred’s Power Business System NOW.

    Thanks for the invite. Skeptical at first, I checked out your first blog… (you know, info overload, etc.) But after reading what you had to say and the content, I really feel you know what you are talking about. I opted in for “Seven points” and look forward to hearing more from you.

    Hello Fred. Small world… my father grew up in BlackRock, AR and then moved to Jonesboro during high school. Your story sounds a lot like mine. I started my home business just days after Hurricane Katrina (I’m in central Alabama but we still got a lot of power outages and flooding). Looking back, it’s hard to believe it’s been over 5 years. I guess time goes by quickly when you’re having fun! :-) Enjoyed your bio, and look forward to your posts.

    Dear Fred,
    I’m impressed by your bio and how you came to understand and make a living at Internet Marketing. I’m a niche marketer – finally figured that out, make decent income with it – hard work, but well worth it. I have a question that I don’t know whom to ask, so you have the “honor”: I understand that Google doesn’t allow viral ads (such as traffic exchanges) to be used to bring readers to articles that have AdSense in them. So, what about sites like IBS, and these terrific-sounding “Ads For Life” sites? Can they be used with links to articles and blogs having AdSense in them? I’d greatly appreciate knowing for sure, and I’m making this a “comment” because there may be other folks who’d like to know, also.

    Many thanks,

    Hi Fred
    Thanks for reading my article on my IBS blog “Christian Patriots” and leaving your comment. I appreciate it.

    I enjoyed reading your blog. You appear to be a well informed and well intentioned online businessman. At the present I am devoting my time to promoting my IBS blog

    I’m not making any money but I really enjoy blogging and it seems that many like my product. I believe that if we are not helping people in a significant way we are not really helping ourselves.

    Hi Fred,

    Thanks for the comment. I have only been doing this for about two years. Started doing freebie trading. Made small money. Then decided better to do affiliate marketing. Am still getting on gthje horse, but enjoying it.

    We have similar background. I went to USMMA, Kings Point and also went into Navy. Two years Active and 30 as a Reservist. I also went EDO as I enjoyed the shipbuilding side. Worked for EB in Groton, then stationary power plants. Am now retired but doing this for some income supplement and also can not play golf every day.

    You have a good attitude and I will stay in touch..

    Hi Fred,

    When you say “A turn-key, off-the-shelf, complete package that even my grandmother could implement” you are presumably talking about a kind of complete-website-in-the-box product. I have dabbled in a couple of them (free and paid) and have not achieved much – and I don’t think it was for lack of trying or following recommended procedure. I wish someone would indeed bring out the perfect product-in-a-box!

    Love your blog. It has you in there. Help for marketers to. I wish I could find a automatic system to put all my biz in, buy some emails, have them send it to my people, add my own people too. Most of those that say “build your list”, you are building their list, you never see the emails of your list.
