About Alsims747
Joined December 2013
Hi, I'm Allan. This is my first attempt to create an online business. I've tried MLM a few times and only succeeded at losing money and feeling foolish for being gullible. Most of my working career has been technology related: building computers, computer tech support, aerospace technician, software tester. After my software job was outsourced to India I've been helping my wife run our home business of caring for the elderly. I'm 66 years old so the prospects for employment here in the USA are pretty slim unless I want to work at Walmart... I don't much care for a minimum wage, no benefit job!!

My goal is to have a successful online business and earn enough income to supplement my retirement income so that we can sell the eldercare business and spend more time enjoying life. We enjoy travel and would like to see more of the world so I really need to succeed online to make this happen.

Money Goals
1) I would be happy earning $1000 per month in order to get out of debt within 2014.
2) I would be ecstatic earning $5000 per month so my wife can quit working and we
can see some more of the world.
3) Our home business of caring for the elderly (currently 3 females and 1 male ranging
from 81 yrs old to 98 yrs old) limits my available time to maybe 15 or 20 hours per
week.

Really good to see that you've added some goals Allan!

These are both realistic and achievable. Your time investment will be key to achieving these goals and you certainly are willing to invest the time :)

Take your time, take action on what you learn, and ask for help when you need it! There are many helpful folks within the Wealthy Affiliate community who have the answers you will be looking for. I personally look forward to helping out in every way I can.

Hey,

I just wanted to follow up and see if you need anything. I see you've already taken action and completed your account profile! That's wonderful! It just goes to show you're able to follow directions and are serious about making this business work! Trust me when I say that's half the battle to success online! So you're part of a rare breed! However I see you haven't upgraded to the premium membership.

If it's because money is tight, I can hook you up. Read the following as you'll learn how others have been able to easily pay for this membership: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/workathomecareerscom/blog/can-t-afford-the-premium-membership-at-wa

At the end of the day you're obviously an action taker unlike a lot of people that may join this community and fail to do anything. As such you should be rewarded for that. So I wanted to remind you of the special bonus I'm offering you:

HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUS
-----------------------------------------------

If you join Premium within the next 4 days, here are some bonuses that I am going to be giving you:

(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 and even the owners of WA (Kyle & Carson) will be able to offer you personal mentoring.

(3) I am going to be giving a special "Diamond Traffic Bonus"

But only if you join in the next 4 days!

You're obviously not required to take advantage of this great offer. But the starter membership can only take you so far. It's clear as day you want to succeed. Otherwise you wouldn't have completed your profile. So I'd like to hook you up with the bonus above!

There is so much more in the way of videos, courses, live chat and private message capabilities that will help you get to the next level quicker. So keep that in mind. In fact, just check out the differences between the starter and premium membership here:
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/kyle/blog/the-premium-membership-in-a-league-of-its-own

I think it will help you see all that you'll get if you take advantage of the bonus and discount I'm offering you. In any event, great job again for taking action and completing your profile!
Keep taking action because every time you do it brings you closer to your success!

Take care,

Eddy

P.S. Remember if you can't afford the premium membership, I can hook you up here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/workathomecareerscom/blog/can-t-afford-the-premium-membership-at-wa

Hey Allan, Sorry to hear your job was outsourced. I've heard that story too many times. Fortunately you have technical skills and that will come in handy in this business because you won't have the same learning curve as others who are intimidated by technology. So that should work in your favor.

I'm confident the marketing skills you'll learn here will help you achieve your goal. I'm here if you need me.

Thanks Eddy for the offer of support. It's nice to see you here at Wealthy Affiliate. Everyone seems friendly and ready to offer help and support. This seems like a breath of fresh air compared to the other 'great opportunities' I've seen on the internet. I do remember visiting your blog and even signed up for the e-juror thing but never heard from anyone. I'm really glad I found Kyle's review of Empower Network. I hadn't heard of Wealthy Affiliate before and after reading the review I decided to let David Wood enjoy Costa Rica and I looked into Wealthy Affiliate. WA is much more the type of thing I have been looking to find.
I'm sure I will take you up on your offer of help when I'm in need. Thanks again and have a great new year.

Regards, Allan

You're welcome Allan. I'm happy you can see that WA is a different type of website where the community spirit is huge. Learning this business is hard enough so Kyle and Carson have evolved WA so you have help from everyone. So I'm happy you can appreciate this.

In terms of e-juror, it's like some survey companies. If you don't have the profile they want, you'll never hear from them. It's the nature of that industry. This is why I always provided my visitors various options so you were never putting all your eggs in one basket. Fortunately you also pursued other things like WA and didn't just stop at one of my recommendations which was a good call on your part!

I'm happy you avoided Empower Network because of what you read from Kyle. From what I gather we've had a lot of converts from them that really appreciate all that we have to offer here at WA. I have no doubts some people are doing well with Empower Network but I don't think the things they do and teach is designed for long term success.

Either Way welcome aboard! Hopefully as you can continue to explore the website you decide to become a premium member so you can continue to have access to all the training, tools and help you'll need to succeed. Here's to a great 2014 for you!

Hello Thorhallur. Thanks for the welcome and the follow. Sorry I didn't reply earlier but I came down with a nasty flu bug the day after I joined WA. I wish you well on our common venture into the world of internet marketing. So far I've been very impressed with all the people here at WA.

Welcome to WA Allan. I am Kyle, co-founder and also an active part of the community here at Wealthy Affiliate. If you ever need anything or you get "stuck"?, let me know as I will be more than happy to help you out.

I do suggest that you start out with the Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1) course. Work your way through this training and take action on the lesson tasks. This is a foundational course that will get you building valuable online assets in just your first few days.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1

Anyways, I hope to see more of you in the coming days here at WA! :)

Hi Kyle. Thanks for the welcome. I'm sorry I haven't replied to your welcome sooner but I came down with a nasty flu bug the day after joining WA. I just wanted to say hi and let you know how impressed i am with how helpful everyone is here at WA. Your review of empower network saved me from another possible MLM mistake. Thanks for creating WA.

Congrats on going Premium, I know you are absolutely going to love it. In the coming days, weeks and months ahead you are really going to see your business start taking shape. I can't wait to see it unfold.

You have everything you need here at WA now, take action, work hard, stay persistent and ask for help if you ever feel even remotely stuck. Lots of help here!

PS. I just got over the flu so I can relate!! Hope you are feeling better Allan!

Hey Allan and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! I am Eddy Salomon and I am so glad we met on blog: www.WorkAtHomeNoScams.com. I want to thank you for taking the time to join the community and the opportunity here at Wealthy Affiliate.

I'm very proud of you and I know you are absolutely going to LOVE it here!

As a new member, the first thing you should do is fill out your account profile which consists of:

(1) Adding a profile image (can be anything you want)
(2) Adding a personal description

Doing this will demonstrate you're serious about learning how to succeed at this business and people will be more likely to answer your questions and help you if they see you've taken the two minutes to complete your profile. If you need help on doing this, watch the following video:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/completing-your-account-set-up-at-wa-adding-a-description-image


Next you should definitely check out the Get Started Here training. This is going to get you up and running with your own niche website very quickly and has a lot of really awesome video training that is going to help this whole "process" make sense.

Here is a direct link to this training:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1

If at any time you need help, just ask. There are a ton of awesome folks here within the community that will be more than happy to help you out and within the first 7 days of your Starter membership you are going to have access to Live Chat, so make sure you check that out. Just remember people are more inclined to help you if you've completed your account profile as described above.

I also have sweet bonus for those of you that are "action takers"...

HOW TO CLAIM YOUR BONUS
-----------------------------------------------

If you join Premium within the first 7 days, here are some bonuses that I am going to be giving you:

(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 and even the owners of WA (Kyle & Carson) will be able to offer you personal mentoring.
(3) I am going to be giving a special "Diamond Traffic Bonus"

But only if you join in your first 7 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself and if you have any questions going forward, let me know. :) Again, it's great having you as a member of WA! It truly shows you're serious about earning a legitimate living online and WA will show you the process I've used to be successful!

I look forward to reading your profile and hearing from you.

Take care,
Eddy
