Who is Dr Hale Pringle Ed.D.?
The View From a Helicopter
I am an Internet Marketing and Attraction Marketing Specialist who loves to help people reach for the stars. I’ve lived the American Dream long enough to know that “it just ain’t so” and we need to look for new ways to make income and fulfill our lives.
THE OLD VIEW
Robert Kiyosaki (in Rich Dad, Poor Dad) talked about the way we have been programmed to 1) get a good education, 2) get a good job, 3) work hard and 4) things will work out. I really like a Ori Bengal’s (a WordPress Blogging Guru) description better: 1) go to school, 2) go to school some more, 3) go to school some more, 3) get a job, 4) have the job yanked out from underneath you, 5) get another job and 6) eventually things are supposed work out. Except as we all know – things aren’t working out for most of us. It is time for a new paradigm.
THE NEW VIEW
I came to the conclusion some years ago that if at least part of my work effort wasn’t going toward something that could generate residual income, then I was totally missing the boat.
A LITTLE HISTORY
I love living in Central Florida – the weather is great, the people are friendly and we have world class things to do.
I’ve been involved with computers and education for over 40 years and I’m now using those years of experience to untangle and demystify working Internet Marketing on-line.
I love to sing and play guitar and (in season) watch football. I sing at Old Folks homes and in our Temple Choir. One of my passions is learning. I really enjoy immersing myself in a new field and learning, learning. You can laugh, but one of my mantra’s really is “Nibble, Nibble – I can eat the whole damn elephant if I just – Nibble, Nibble”.
In case I didn’t make the point above – making money on-line is my current passions. I’ve finally found something I can learn and teach and feel totally fulfilled. My specialties of figuring out how systems work and my love of teaching others make me unique in many ways.
The Timeline Bio:
HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE
I went to high school (Leesburg, FL) and college (at the University of Florida) loving tennis and band. I was with the Gator Band for seven years while working my way through three degrees. The Doctorate in Educational Administration and Research prepared me to be a life-long educator. The research side taught me to analyze systems and figure out what made them tick.
As I mentioned before, this was the 1) Go to School, 2) Go to School some more part of my life.
I spent a few years in the Army – as an instructor, teaching public speaking and writing, with a little psychological warfare thrown in for good measure. The parallels between Psych Warfare and Marketing have amused me to no end. I didn’t really plan on going into the Army, but during the Vietnam War era, Uncle Sam made some of your plans for you.
PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM
I worked with the Orange County (Florida) School Board for five years as a researcher and learned to analyze educational systems and then evaluate them.
SOCIAL SERVICE AGENCY
After that I invited to work for a Social Service agency as an administrator and evaluator. Teaching was still part of everything I did. During this time I became a well known in the Drug Abuse Prevention Evaluation field and went on consulting assignments all over the U.S. I ended up as the Executive Director of a million dollar a year agency – but that definitely was not where I wanted to be.
UNIVERSITY COMPUTER DEPARTMENT – STATISTICS AND LOCAL AREA NETWORKS
In the 80’s I was approached by the University of Central Florida to take over their Faculty and Student computer systems. Part of that job involved honing my research skills and becoming an expert in statistical packages. I taught hundreds of classes on various aspects of using computer systems. This was the early days of what were then called micro-computers.
I got involved with Local Area Networks (LANs) and eventually had a regular column in LAN Magazine and became president of Novell’s International User Group (88,000 members all over the world). I gave over 500 presentations at national conferences on LANs and computers.
During these years, I spent many, many hours on a second job – we called it consulting, but it was definitely hours for dollars, after the regular 40 plus (plus, plus) hour work week.
I wrote a unsolicited grant proposal and Novell ended up funded a LAN Institute at the University of Central Florida and I was the Director. A few years into this, the President of Novell retired and the new administration killed the funding for the Institute.
This was a hard time in my life – the economy had taken a downturn and finding a job was difficult. I won’t go into the details, but we did struggle – two children and no job.
I ending up becoming a Project Manager for Software Development and created software for a living. Part of my responsibility was training, building online training and help systems and doing system analysis to understand how different companies ran their business.
My wife and I joined Amway during this period and I learned about residual income. I realized that working a “job”, with a second “job” on the side was never going to get us where we wanted to be – financially free. After six years we also realized that Amway was not the vehicle for us. We weren’t growing and neither were the people around and over us. I couldn’t say “you can do this” to prospects if I couldn’t’ do it myself.
“HAVE JOB YANKED OUT FROM UNDER YOU” TIME
I spent too many years working for small companies – acquiring part ownership via sweat equity – only to see something beyond our control bring everything crashing down. I spent ten years with one company until they went under and five with another. As I got older and the economy tanked, it became more and more difficult to find a job. People don’t want to hire someone who is older with a higher degree. They feel that they can’t pay what you are worth and that you will jump ship as soon as you find something better. Hard times for sure.
Eventually we found Market America. We loved the company, the products and how the compensation plan was designed so that you got paid for helping others – no matter who sponsored them or how far down your organization they were.
Again we saw that very few people around us were growing and we had difficulty with the “talk to everyone within 3 feet and you will eventually find go-now/go-getters.”
That is when I decided to focus my energies on building a duplicatable system of marketing products, services and in some cases my network marketing company online. I’ve spent six months and over $15,000 looking at systems and taking training to learn to be and teach being an Internet Entrepreneur. There are people actively searching for what we have. Instead of wading through hundreds of people to find one or two who are looking, the Internet allows us to help those people find us. Today I am an award winning blogger, am running Pay Per Click ads on Facebook and YouTube and have a following that literally spans the world. What a difference!
Here are some accomplishments for 2012 and 2013
1. I have become Accredited through training by Ann Sieg
2. I have won a competitive Award from Ann Sieg and her 80/20 Staff – Best Community Builder.
3. I have been one of the training hosts on dozens of webinars.
4. Award Winning Blogger – number 11.
6. I am writing a blog with a growing following. For example I’ve had visitors from over 45 countries so far.
7. I am running successful ads on Facebook and YouTube and generating leads online
That’s where I am today and I am looking to people to join me on this journey into the world of Internet Marketing and generating residual income working online. See the Work with Hale Page
