BECAUSE OF WEALTHY AFFILIATES, IT SEEMS THAT MY "BIOGRAPHY" IS CHANGING DAILY....

I am NO LONGER TOTALLY NEW (as of October 30, 2017, I may just be an amateur...no longer a novice). I just started a blog this summer but have not published it yet; however, I did have someone review it for me and he sent me $500 to help me with my expenses for hosting, etc. I now have an active WEBSITE on WA, and have my plans in place for a total of six, most interactive with one another for similar purposes but different populations and niches.

Jocelyn and I live in Georgia, where we have a small house, a nice private yard, and two dogs. After forty plus years in higher education and adult education, I have moved into non-profit management and advancement. This is the reason I started my blog. THEN, I heard (and read) about people making money online.

So here I am, beginning a new arena of my career, looking for ways to challenge myself and build a business online (we have some commercial and residential real estate as our business now, but it is not as exciting to me as the prospect of a successful online business). I have WAAAAAY to many ideas to keep up with, but WA is helping me "corral" them, sort them, cull the ones that have little future, and put my energies in the right place. Thanks to all of the WA community for that.

At this point, I have a blog which is up and running, but I need to get it hosted on WA and don't really know how. I have three websites on WA which are active, and I have another two siterubix websites that I use for fun and quick connections on facebook. It is nice to do what I do, which is hold contests about music, and be able to have a "kleenex" (use and throw away) website where I can keep track of points of contestants, add information about the contests, collect votes on prizes, etc., as well as just have some quick blogs about music. Right now our context is in "sixties music" --
I learned some new things today about affiliate marketing. The world of affiliate marketing is far larger and more populated than I ever expected. Whew.

In short...I am once-retired and now re-working. It has amazed me how the community here has already responded to me -- messages, notes, following, etc. I am VERY ENCOURAGED, which works for me as my primary role in life has always been to be AN ENCOURAGER. Thanks to everyone. Thanks again to everyone (as my first "thank you" was two weeks ago). Bob

Great goals, Bob! In time, you'll want to increase the amount of hours you're working per week to achieve goals this ambitious, but for now that amount of work is a great start! The sky is the limit in this industry, so your goals are more than achievable with a lot of hard work and sticking to the training.

Great blog article about Bob Harris. It makes me feel I know you already. I too have found WA to be a very encouraging and helpful community and it is that which keeps me going. I love the process of learning and like you I am not ready to retire but instead feel excited about having an online business. Like you too I have a lot of different ideas and its hard to get them prioritised and work on one before heading off on another.
Thankyou for your encoragement Bob, I enjoyed readig al you had to say.
Cheers and all the best in WA

Hey Bob, how's everything coming along now that you've been a member for a few days? I hope you've found your way into the "Get Started Here" training toward the top of the menu on the left and that you're enjoying yourself so far!

Some people gravitate towards the "Affiliate Bootcamp" training which is something I don't recommend right off of the bat if you've never made money in internet marketing before. I have a detailed blog post covering this topic if it's something you're wrestling with and you'd like me to send you the link.

I know that may be a bit confusing, but if you have any questions at all don't hesitate to ask! I hope you're enjoying your time here so far :)

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

I keep a pretty good pulse of my referrals here, especially the ones that are working hard to help themselves (and so do the co-founders of Wealthy Affiliate, Kyle and Carson), so if you're willing to work hard here, I'm happy to help support you every way that I can!

Let me know if there's anything I can help you with.

I am trying to decide if this is the same as a hosting site as the one I was about to use for my blog - Bluehost. I am not asking anyone to talk about another product, but I need to know that if I put my blog here that I will have what I need to support it.

The other thing I need to know is about Shopify. I am working through some training with a drop shipping trainer and need to know that WA will support that effort and, of course, if there are good alternatives to Shopify. Again, not asking anyone to trash anyone's product (which I can tell you wouldn't do anyway),but needing some guidance. I am about to spend some money on hosting and on selling so I need to be efficient ( I am retired, but still running two non-profits with no salary and running two brick and mortar businesses my mom owns). Thanks

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! :)

You are and have already been a great encouragement. My thought is that when I am up and running I will be able to do as you have done for me. THANK YOU. I look forward to keeping in touch. I DO HAVE QUESTIONS.

Hey Bob! Feel free to post them one-by-one to the community here (as I think you've done a little bit) and let me know if there's anything the community isn't getting you the answers you need on. I can't commit to being "first tier" support — I'm running a business too, and need to protect my time as much as possible to keep growing it — but I'm ALWAYS here for my followers when they try the proper outlets but still end up "stuck" because they couldn't get the help they needed. I'd be happy to help.

Hey Bob! 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): 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!
