Hey There! I'm Wayne. I wanted to give a bit of my background and what brought me here to Wealthy Affiliate.

Years ago (2003-2005) I worked with a small group of guys at a Web Development company when many businesses were just starting to get online. I loved the job, but when paychecks started bouncing it was time to leave. In-between jobs I had tried various businesses and saw some people having success with affiliate marketing and blogging. I tried to monetize websites while working freelance opportunities, but my [future] wife at some point helped me figure out after a bit that it was time to get another job and moonlight on the passive income business I wanted to create on the side.

I then spent the next 7 years in a soul-sucking 9-5 Corporate IT job.

(No offense to anyone that enjoys cubicles and the Corporate IT world. But, when you're waking up thinking obscenities and saying "this is where my soul goes to die" on the drive into work for years on end, it's not the job for you!!!)

There's a large story here of all the events that happened that kept me at this job. Buying a house, getting married, 2008 Recession, working on my house, workplace responsibilities, burnout, stress, hobbies that turned into a business but wasn't the type of business I really wanted. I could write a book, but instead, I'll just say I had plenty of off-the-wall struggles & despite really wanting to create a passive income business, it never happened.. even after leaving the job in 2013.

But here's the good news. With all of those struggles, comes a ton of experience I can use to help others. Everything in life teaches us something.

I've been on a success mindset / positive thinking / personal development journey for the last few years, out of necessity. I've been reading or listening to a lot o fmaterial from some of the greats like Napoleon Hill, Jim Rohn, Earl Nightgale, Zig Ziglar, Dale Carnegie and Wallace D Wattles. It's now my passion to learn about success and help others get on the right track for success too.

"You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want." --Zig Ziglar

Life should be fun, not a chore. We should enjoy what we're doing, follow our passions, and as long as we're helping people, we'll be rewarded for our efforts.
And that's why I'm here now. I can finally focus on building the business I want and help others achieve success too!

I think Wealthy Affiliate is a great place to discover what you're passionate about and build a successful business around helping others!

Thanks for reading!

Hello Wayne And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing is going to be a steep learning curve and there will always be something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 490+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Have a great day.
Robert

No probs Wayne and if/when you read my blogs make sure you choose the ones that will help you in conjunction with whatever training you are currently taking.

Also as a new member you may not be aware of this but it’s a good idea (only if you are interested in your rank within WA) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.

Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing else.

But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your Friday.

Hi and congratulations on going premium with WA. It's a wise decision.

Your best bet from here is to follow all of the 5 course, 50 lesson Online Entrepreneur Certification training.

But the really important step is to apply what you're learning WHILE YOU'RE LEARNING IT.

I can't emphasize this enough.

Not only will it make the training stick, but in no time at all you'll have your first WA website up and running.

Google ranking and monetization will follow inevitably.

If you're stuck any time, just post a question.

One of us at WA will answer it and you'll be off again.

It's a journey and you've just taken your first and best step.

I wish you all the best.

Phil

Hi Renee!! Thanks for joining my network! I liked your "Laws of the Universe" post! Been reading a lot about those laws myself and understanding how mindset/attitude DO make a difference. What we put out in the world, we get back. I'm a big believer! Wishing you great success on your journey!

Hey Wayne,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Wayne and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Thanks! No problem with niche selection :) I've already got that rolling on a few different fronts, but I'm still going through the earlier training just to see how the overall courses here are. Wealthy Affiliate fits in perfectly as a product I could recommend on my blog/website, but I like to try the products out and recommend what I think will definitely help others. Plus, I'm certain later parts of the training will be immensely helpful in filling in some gaps in succeeding with SEO and driving traffic to the websites.. something I've never had a great handle on myself.

So far I do like what I see in terms of ease of use for beginners and advantages even for people that have some experience. I'm going to finish up the training and will very likely be going PREMIUM after that.

I do have a tax related question I'd love to ask you in-private, but it looks like I may need to wait until I sign up for a Premium account before I can do that..

You can drop me a PM as a premium member from within my profile here at any time:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/kyle

At the top of the page you will see a Private Message button, click that and go through the steps and you can send me a PM. As a Premium member you have this one-on-one mentorship and coaching access. :)

If you have any questions in the meantime though you can ask them here.

I am not sure what your specific tax question is, but income that you earn online will be claimed as personal income when starting out. It will depend where you are located in the world as to what tax rules apply, but it will be based on your local tax rules and regulations. It is typically going to be claimed as personal income or "sole proprietor".

But yeah, you are responsible for claiming any income you earn. As for setting up a business and running income through a business, this should be something that is considered when you start earning $50K-$100K per year, not before that.

Hey Wayne, just wanted to pop back and see how you are doing? I noticed that you haven't quite set-up your account yet, just wanted to let you know there is a video on how to do this if there is any confusion. Setting up your account will lead to much better help here within the community as people feel like they can connect with you better (with an image and a description)

Just wanted to make sure that all was good and if you do need a hand with anything, just let me know! :)
