About Akgtex
Joined May 2019
Howdy ya'll! I live in Texas and have my Master's in Exercise Physiology. I have managed gyms and health clubs for about 15 years. I have also personal trained as well as dabbled in marketing and sales. I feel myself burning out and getting tired of working long hours just to make gym owners more money while i still live paycheck to paycheck. I would love to use my skills to venture off into a new career and finally work for myself so i can have more flexibility with my time and life!

I totally get your story. I was in exactly the same situation back in 2008 and this was the time that, like you, I started to venture out into the online business world after 12 years of working at the gym. Today I am so glad I made the choice because now I get to work on my own business from my home office.

Alicia, I believe you're in the right place. Just make sure you keep moving forward in the training and complete every single step in the checklist within every lesson. Don't skip. The key is to take massive action and get clear on your niche market. Help your market get what they want and in return, you'll get what you want... time freedom!

Congratulations and stay motivated by your passion.

Hi Alicia,

Thanks for following me and joining my network. I've returned the compliment and followed you back.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate. WA is a great community. There is so much to learn. I am here most days. I learn something new every day.

I've been a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate for two years, and I don't regret one day! I'm now a member of the 2020 Super Affiliate Challenge. I'll see it through to the end, and I'll be at the Las Vegas Super Affiliate Conference next year.

Keep moving ahead. However, your day may be, take a little step forward. Some days you'll make significant strikes, other days you will not, but do something every day, however small in building your business.

Nathaniell has compiled a list on WA success stories. They give you some idea of what to expect and how to achieve your goals. Pace yourself and enjoy your journey. Remember, little steps are better than no steps!

Best wishes,
Paul.
Be Happy!

Welcome and congratulations on becoming a Premium member! You have made a great decision and you will not regret it.
If you haven't already noticed, the community support is amazing and the training is just out of this world (well the internet world, lol).
Anyway, as the saying goes: You Only Live Once, so make this the best thing that has ever happened in your life.
I am happy to be part of your network and to be part of your story here at WA.
Best wishes,
Saane

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us. 

Wealthy Affiliate is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business. I tried to do this alone before and was completely lost. 

Now I know why. 

There are so many tricks of the trade and it saves so much time having it all laid out clearly in its training programs. 

Keep following the training and exercises every day. Give it a year to see significant results. You'll be a happy camper by then. We all make progress at different rates and it is possible to see meaningful results in 4-6 months. Google cannot be rushed. 

Google rewards people with websites that provide value to their visitors. It helps to boost their ad revenue of course! And that helps your websites get high rankings. But it takes time to build credibility. Once they realize your site is an authority site, good things will happen faster. 

When you get stuck, and you will, just ask for help in the discussion area located below each lesson. Scroll down to find it. Another member who has the answer will get back to you promptly. 

In the meantime have fun with the program. Much success to you.

Cheers!

Edwin

Thank you for the encouragement! One question, when you say give it a year (which i am fully willing to do) should i only focus on one niche and website for this first year?

Hi Akgtex, (Would you mind sharing your first name?)

You only need one superb website servicing one niche to be successful in Affiliate Marketing. There is so much to learn and apply, that your effort is best kept in focus.

Once you have achieved reasonable financial goals then by all means explore other niches. Your progress then will be much quicker. This is one way to scale up your business.

This is so exciting. I wish you the very best in your business ventures.

Cheers.

Edwin

Hello! Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate and congratulations for choosing the Premium Plan rather than staying in Free Plan.

To me it sounds you're really serious with building your own online business and earn a steady passive income from the niche you love.

Given, I encourage you to take the training seriously and spend time to build your website and content that your readers love as well as your potential business partners. This won't be an overnight process.

You need to understand that building a lifelong business such as earning passive income entails a lot of consistent hard work without self-doubt. Not an inch of it.

With tenacity and consistent practice of doing your best, you will receive a pleasant reward in the end. If you have questions, feel free to send me a message. I'll be happy to help each other out.

Again, congratulations and welcome for being here. Have a nice day! Let's keep in touch. :)

Cheers,

Mecyll
