About AllanC
Joined September 2013
Hi, My name is Allan, and my online passion has always been for honest and Low Cost ways to make money at home, and to create opportunities for others as well. I joined WA in 2013, and recommitted in May of 2016.

In some ways I consider myself a "late bloomer". After 17+ years in the corporate world, and two college degrees later, graduating with honors in fields totally unrelated to the accounting background of my previous job, I've finally committed to creating an online income that will take me through to full retirement.

I also discovered (again later in life) that I had a better than average voice.
And I love to sing Gospel. No, not professionally, but good enough not to totally annoy anyone who is listening...or maybe I just don't worry any about it anymore. :)

My greatest passion - Sharing the faith in Jesus Christ which has guided me all my adult life. There is an abundant peace found as you seek to live in the grace and forgiveness of God in Christ.

My most teachable scripture - Matthew Chapter 6: 19-34
Here is my condensed version: Earthly treasure has it's function, but it cannot guarantee safety and security...God is my ultimate provider, and security.
Therefore I'll seek the kingdom of God, and His righteousness above all else.

My favorite quote -
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
Your playing small does not serve the world: There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were all meant to shine as children do…it’s not just in some of us it’s in everyone. And as we let our light shine we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberate others.”
Nelson Mandela.

Money Goals
Money is not the end game, but at this time it's a key element to reaching many of your life's goals

That said...I'm hoping in the short term to make a few $100/mth to give me some wiggle room out a tight financial squeeze, after that I'll need enough to free up my time and energy so that I can focus on giving back, and building up a "war chest" to help others in need. Then later on I'd like to create a decent retirement income. I'm willing to invest 20+ hrs a week.
Money I would be happy earning
Money I would be ecstatic earning
Time I'm willing to invest to achieve my goals

Fantastic Allan! I know you are going to become a rock star within the online world before you know it. I am looking forward to seeing you succeed at ALL of your goals and am behind you ever step of the way if you need it.

You are in the right place here at Wealthy Affiliate and you have all the tools, training, websites, networking and support to take you wherever you want in this journey. :)

Those are VERY achievable goals, Allan! Starting small and working your way up in time is definitely much more likely to set you up for success than aiming to work <5 hours per week, or aiming for a massive amount of money way too quickly.

If I can help you achieve these goals in any way, please let me know! I'm happy to help however I can.

It looks like you're moving along very nicely, Allan! I see you have your profile all setup and hopefully you've been engaging with the community a bit!

I'd love to get to know you and your income goals better so that I can do my best to set you up for success. Would you mind taking a minute to chime in and share here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/getting-started/what-are-your-money-goals

I keep a pretty close watch on that thread (and so do the co-founders of Wealthy Affiliate, Kyle and Carson), so posting your income goals there will give us a much better idea of what we can do to help you!

And of course, let me know if there's anything I can help you with Allan :)

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Allan!

I wanted to stop by and officially welcome you to WA and ask you if you have any questions about getting started?

We have every tool, training resource, and support channel to help you build a thriving online business and I am personally here to help you succeed.

The "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)" course is my suggestion on where to get started and you will find this on your dashboard or within the main menu:

I hope to get a chance to work with you soon :)

Hey Allan! I wanted to start you off with a quick note that could SIGNIFICANTLY impact your success with Wealthy Affiliate. Read this entire message if you are serious about being successful in internet marketing (it's lengthy, but I'm not joking when I say that this advice could make or break your entire internet marketing career):

1) You'll need to work consistently and hard. There's going to be a lot to learn in the beginning and you may feel overwhelmed at a point, but keep pressing forward and you'll make it through. It happened to me and every other successful internet marketer at some point, and the only way to become successful in this industry is to push past that overload whenever you get there.

Do yourself a favor and commit to a number of hours that you can work each week right now. It doesn't have to be massive, but it should be more than 10 between evenings and weekends at least. Just remember the more you work each week, the faster you'll learn and draw closer to success.

After you've picked the number of hours you can work each week, commit to working that much for AT LEAST six months - a year would be better. You won't see results immediately in this industry, and being consistent is the key. Pick a number of hours you can work each week, then work those hours for at least six months. It's something you've probably never done in this industry, and this advice alone will make a HUGE difference in your chances at succeeding with internet marketing as long as you take it seriously and STICK WITH IT.

2) I recommend starting off with this training (which you can access with your free account): https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1

It just scratches the surface of the MASSIVE amount of helpful content in WA, but you'll get a good "feel" for the teaching style here and begin to see the power of all of the great things they're teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate.

3) DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE COMMUNITY. Two of the best places you can go to for help when you get stuck are the "Live Chat" and the "Classrooms" sections located on the panel to your left. You'll find direction and inspiration through the community here, which is one of the reasons I recommend WA so highly.

4) Finally, you don't ever have to upgrade to the premium account here at Wealthy Affiliate if you don't want to. You'll have limited access using your free account for as long as you wish. HOWEVER, if you're serious about internet and affiliate marketing then you should invest in the premium membership for AT LEAST one month. You could look back on it years from now and see it as a pivotal moment in your internet marketing career, but you never will if you don't at least give it a try.

Check it out for a few days though - you don't need to upgrade right now. Make sure it's a good fit for you, and if you upgrade within the first 7 days you'll receive your first month's membership at more than 50% off. I keep my membership active and recurring every month so I can be here for the people I refer like you, so realize that I'm putting my money where my mouth is here!

On top of that, if you upgrade to a premium membership at the discounted rate within the first 7 days I have a special bonus EXCLUSIVE to people that join WA through me and upgrade within the first week of creating their free account. This bonus will show you how to be twice as successful with WA or any other legitimate internet marketing program out there and gives you some very valuable video lessons (which I recorded for you personally, of course) to ensure you get off to the right step in your internet marketing business.

I keep a close watch on the list of people that upgrade from starter to premium, so I'll send the bonus your way within 24 hours. If you upgrade and don't receive it within that time frame for some reason, just post on my WA profile and let me know!

I don't offer that bonus so you'll spring for the membership and make me more money, I offer the bonus just in case you needed that tiny "push" to make sure you invest in this training because I know that you will use for the rest of your IM career and it could change your life. I've referred hundreds of people now and I have NEVER had anyone tell me they were dissatisfied.

Best of luck to you! You're about to embark on a journey that could change your life forever, so make sure you take it seriously, put in the time and effort, and expect great things in return!

You know where to find me,
Ian Pribyl

P.S. I know I've thrown A LOT of information your way in this message, but I wanted to give you one last thing. Here is a video tour of the members' area to help ensure you get the most out of your free membership as possible: http://youtu.be/NDmMcMtMB8c

Sorry for sending so much your way at once, I just want to set you up for success as much as I possibly can!
