About BElliott56
Joined November 2018
Here is a NEW update:
First off I'm still here banging along toward my goals. I will be successful as an entrepreneur. When you are doing something like this, you have to stay hungry and remain focused. I spent a whole month fixing my theme that kept failing on me. I ended up changing it out 3xs. It is best to do it now in the infancy stages then when I have a huge amount of traffic and say 500 blogs. I would be hating life by then, I got my business cards, my business license and my ein number for taxes. All I need now is my business checking account.

What I will be doing now is creating lots of great content and reviews to get ranked higher.I'm networking in as many ways as possible. I'm using Facebook, linkedin, instagram, and google. I have been attending a weekly local network meeting here where I live. I pass out my business cards everywhere I can think of.

I have changed up my goals a bit. We had some financial issues. My son took a loan out against his car to help us out.So I will pay it off with my first commissions.I will get my wife's tooth fixed that chipped off also very soon. My teeth all have to be replaced. I lost so many since I became diabetic. This is a big expense and must be done before the end of the year. My wife and I want to fly to the Philippines to see a friend my wife led to Christ.

All of these things will happen in time.I must remain vigil in my efforts and the cash will flow.

Hello Pete I saw your post on Shannons website. I'm a diabetic also. I have been one since 2007. In have two websites I'm running. https://diabetic-victory.com and https://web-opportunity.com

I liked what you posted and was wondering if you would like to be a guest author on my diabetic website. Think it over and let me know. I would give you all the credit and link your website to mine. It will help you get more traffic.

Hello Elliott!
Thank you for the follow. We have similar goals here in WA. I am also from the Philippines but living here in the United States.
I want to eventually become financially independent or atleast have a steady income so my wife and I could do some more travelling and definitely for our future family.

Having purpose with our goals is important. This gives us drive and inspiration.

Let us work hard for our success!
All the best!

BElliott56 Premium
I agree with you 100%. We have a friend there who lives in the philippines. We are trying to figure out how we can get him and his two children here to Texas? can you offer any help on this matter.

I can help to the best of my ability. I may not be much help though as I don't really know much about the subject. I'm sending you a PM so we can continue our convo there.

Hi Brian,
Thank you for the follow - I have reciprocated.
You have an interesting profile.
I have been here at WA a bit longer than you & continue to have difficulties with my website. I am determined to follow the excellent training here at WA & most important - I will not quit.

The number one priority is one's health - we can't proceed here or anywhere else if our health is not good.

Wishing you great success here at WA

tbowyer Premium
Hi Brian.

I too am new to all this. If effort is what is required to be successful, then I'm not afraid! I don't mind working hard, I only object when the fruits of my labour are unrewarded and unappreciated. I'm sure you feel the same.

I've only just begun my journey in WA, so we're both in the same boat.

Good luck to us both. ;+)
BElliott56 Premium
Patience is the key here. It takes on average 3 - 6 months to make coin. Last month I had so many challenges. My website crashed 3 xs. Had conflict with the theme and plug ins. It sucked but I figured best to straighten it out now then when I get really rolling and have hundreds of blogs and a butt load of traffic. go check out my website. www.ubetwecanhelp.com

The last two days were not the best. Been dealing with Trojan Horse virus. Had to wipe computer clean.

I only "liked" this comment to send you strength!

When I first started out my laptop was run over by a car and I didn't have anything backed up, months of writing I never published, which was pretty much all my fault.

Stay strong. I believe in you!

Hi, Brian.

Thank you 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 every day.

I've been a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate over 18 months now, and I don't regret one day!

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.

You will read many stories of WA members succeeding with their online goals. Some have achieved this in a few months, for others, it has taken a couple of years. The common theme for those that have reached their goals is taking action. Everyone who has succeeded has taken small steps every day. Do something, however tiny, every day, and you will reach your goal.

Pace yourself and enjoy your journey.

Best wishes,
Be Happy!

Yesterday was one of those days to forget. I stuck in the weeds for about 5 hrs. Just couldn't get ahead. However I don't quit, it's not in my DNA make up. Today seems much better.

Thanks for your insight.

Brian thank you for including me in your network!
I want to encourage you to dive in deep with the training. Right now you're in Basic Training. Follow the steps. They have all been laid out for you.
It will be tempting to take a look at the "latest and greatest" shiny object that offers rags to riches in 30 seconds. RESIST!!
Here at WA you will learn how to be in it for the long haul. Build something that will last.
Reach out if you need assistance.

Rooting for you!

Hello Brian and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you may well have come to the conclusion that internet marketing is a steep learning curve.

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 460+ 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.

Hello Brian,
Hey, you have tried everything so why not make the best with an excellent company (WA) with a solid foundation which can provide you with business mentoring, tutorials and training. You can't go wrong if you diligently stick to the program and learn from all those around you. It does not happen overnight but you can learn it over a little time if you apply yourself. All the best to you at WA. You can always reach out to me if you have a question(s).

Brian, it's nice that you connected with me. I just did the same for you. I pray that you have great success with WA. A small word of advice, 'Don't get so involved with the social aspect of the program that it lures you away from the training, which is a habit that I am guilty of doing. Once you get your wings, (Your website up and running), then soar with the rest of the WA Eagles.

What Branch of the Military did you serve and how long? I was U.S. Army for two years active and four years inactive.

BElliott56 Premium
I do enjoy writing to other members. But I have goals set in place which I follow. If I really need to talk. I come back in later and do so.

In regards to your question about the military. I was in for 7 years active duty. I served in the Navy as a seabee from 80-87. I was discharged as a Bu2.

Best of success ahead for you and thank you for your service.

Talk to you again soon.
Brian E.
RPP080879 Premium
Thanks for your reply but, mostly for your service. I pushed up my draft and was activated on July 1, 1957, and discharged on June 18, 1959. Later, I served on inactive duty for four years.

Hi BElliott56! I just wanted to take a moment to welcome and congratulate you on your decision to upgrade your membership to premium status with WA. I did the same several weeks ago and I can truthfully say that I have not had any regrets. I came to WA as a total "newbie" with no experience at all with the world of affiliate marketing. Since that time, I have been able to create my website, have the site ranked by Google and am starting to see some traffic to my site. Never thought I could do this at the age of 64. Just goes to show that if someone like me can have these achievements, then there is no doubt that you can do the same. The support you will receive here is totally amazing and there is a wealth of knowledge just for the asking. Many affiliates are very eager to help and provide encouragement. I wish you much success in your endeavors!
RoseAnn1234 Premium
Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learnt to always use the search tab at the top of the desktop, the answer is usually in someone's free training. Type in topic, rather than long question.
There is an answer to just about every question, all you need to do is ask..
Aside from the Certification and Bootcamp courses, there is heaps of extra training. Check out the training classrooms as well as the live events. There are current as well as past events in here. You can find both these tabs on the left-hand side
Start playing with tabs and boxes on your dashboard, there is so much hidden information, just keep looking for it.
Enjoy Wealthy Affiliate. There are lots of people here only to happy to help you along the way with encouragement and helpful tips. Wealthy Affiliate is about training, but that is just a small part of this wonderful community. If you participate as well as train, you will gain so much more.
LCEndahl Premium
Hi! Welcome to WA Premium!! You will not regret your decision to go Premium!! The information available here is never ending!! And the training is incredible, and you won’t find anything like it, anywhere else!! Take it ALL in!!

Follow the training! I cannot stress this enough. Do not skip around. Do the lessons in the order in which they are. As well as the tasks that follow each of those lessons. I often jumped ahead in training, on my own, to only later really regret it. Take my word for it, it’s not worth it.

Go at your pace. Slow and steady is my new rule. You'll find you can't wait to learn more in the following days. You’ll want to learn more!! It ignites a new passion within you. It did me! Gave me back my purpose for living! There were a few lessons that I had to watch twice. If that's what you have to do, do it!

And soon you will have yourself an awesome website. Amazing direction, and the tools that you need to succeed in whatever it is you want to do!

You CAN do this!!

Be awesome! Be amazing!! And be successful!!!
thelungdoc Premium
Welcome to WA and Premium;

You will find at WA a huge amount of information that it is almost overwhelming. Sometimes the first impression is to think, "I can't do this!"

But you can! The great thing about this site is there is step-by-step information about how to go from zero to having a wonderful website which you can monetize into a wealth-producing asset you could sell or pass on to your kids.

There is also a wonderful community here that can help you to really accomplish great things.

We are not in competition here either so there are always great people ready, willing, and able to help if you get stuck.

Many other "opportunities" and certainly scams out there would have everybody promoting the same thing so you are in competition with everyone else! - Not nice.

I am hopeful you will seriously give this a serious try and I am sure you will be pleased with the results.

RDulloo Premium
Hi Brian. Congrats on going Premium! How does it feel? :)

Oh I've tried a few businesses as well, including a brick and mortar business that got me into a ton of debt because the rent was so expensive. I had to close down.

But that's okay.. :) we learn from our experiences and now WA is like my second home. I hope that it feels the same way to you as well...

Good luck and holler should you need any help.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Brian!

You'll have your online business up and running in no time if you just start working through the training.

Which can be accessed by clicking on the green "Get Started Here" button to the left.

Or by clicking the link right here: If you're ready to put in the time and effort I'll be here to personally help through the courses or with any questions that you might have during your journey towards running your own business.

You can just leave me a question over at my personal profile.

Be sure to create your personal profile by adding an image and a few words about yourself. Members tend to reach out and offer you more help after you create one.

And just a quick reminder that you have no time limit on your starter membership, but if you become a premium member within your first 7 days, you'll be able to get 59% off your first month.

I took advantage of the offer, and haven't looked back since.

Anyways, have a look around and don't be afraid to say hi.

BElliott56 Premium
Hey Laetyn, thanks for your help. Do you need a business license to do this? I also want to know if there is a shortcut app I can install. Lastly how much does a domain name cost. Do you know if there are other hidden costs that I will have to cover.
