About Brooklyn2008
Joined February 2016
Hi my name is Nicki and I am brand new to WA and building websites, with a little bit of experience with online marketing.

I spend so much time searching random things online, I figured that there has got be a way for me to make money with all of the time that I spend online!! lol

I live just outside of Toronto, Ontario, and I am legal assistant at a very busy firm dealing inclusively in Aboriginal law.

On the weekends, I work for a new homes marketing company and I am currently working at a condo sales office downtown Toronto.

I am a very hard working person, and I am constantly searching for new ways to make money online, and I always have a million different ideas of how I can do so.

I am very excited about this opportunity. I think it is exactly the perfect start to where I want to grow my ideas.

I am also an avid traveller (hence the two jobs lol) and I am really looking forward to my trips to Peru and Australia this year!!!

[February 2017 update]

So it's been a year since I've joined WA and a lot has happened since then.

I managed to make it to Peru and Australia last year (which were both amazing), and I no longer need to work two jobs. I now have my weekends free - even though occasionally I do pick up the odd shift selling condos/new houses, just because it can be fun.

I have since got a little promotion at work and a nice raise. My goal every year is to make my Net pay what my Gross pay was the previous year. So far, for the last 3 years, I have been successful at this mini challenge. But as my income increases, so do my deductions. lol So being able to Net what I gross, becomes increasingly harder and harder every year. But I am determined to make it happen again this year, and I know what type of dedication it's going to take to make that happen.

This is going to be a very exciting year for me. I am about to buy my first house, I just started a new website which I am very excited about (I realized that my first site is more of a hobby since I was not extremely passionate about writing content for it as much as i would need to make it successful), and I am going to Costa Rica for a friend's wedding in December. Lots of big things on my plate. But I am excited to make it happen and to share all my milestones with you all!! :)



Cheer from cold Canada :)

Hi Nicki,

I wanted to connect with you again as you were most helpful to me while taking Progress Course 1.

As of yesterday my situation has changed with a major business contract in another field. Yes, I am very pleased with the opportunity awarded to me but it is going to be a challenge for me. As well, I would hate to have to give this opportunity up as I was just getting started and most enthusiastic about affiliate marketing. Over night I thought of a solution that may work and wanted to run it by you to see 1. If you think it might work 2. If you knew anyone in the network that might be interested.

Here's what I am thinking of sending to selected members:

So low and behold I just started on this wonderful discovery journey of Wealthy Affiliate and the wonderful people involved just as I have been awarded a major business contract in a non affiliated business line. Suddenly I came to the realization that it would take me loads of time to acquire the technical ability to do this ...time which I will not have to commit to technical education. However, I do believe there is tremendous opportunity in affiliate relationships and I do believe I have the business knowledge to fully leverage it. I am therefore very loath to leave this opportunity untouched but I must be realistic. I would like to solicit assistant from one of you that is experienced and capable and have successful affiliate businesses running to get me up and running and started with a business model I could provide.

Therefore here is my CALL TO ACTION : Would any of you talented people join me in a 50-50 business venture. If you can help me with the technical aspect of getting up and running, I could implement my business knowledge to formulate a lucrative model I would propose to form a partnership thereby share the proceeds 50-50 with you. If you are interested in this kind of arrangement please notify me and we can start a conversation toward it.

I would appreciate any comments or help you may be able to provide.

Sincerely,

Jay

A warm WELCOME to WA from Asia, Nicki !

Here we have around 25 degrees! Nice and warm....

Well you have some serious goals in your life! Good for you.
I tried to sell houses in Toronto last year (per phone)...and I have to say I have SOLD...none! people there were a bit crazy about the price they WANT and what it's true current market value was.

Anyway Costa Rica..GREAT experience for me! The nicest people I met on any of my trips! Even at the airport they were super nice! Smoked a lot of pot...ups. Maybe that's why they were so nice? LOL
So have fun traveling...I am a DAD now. The hardest JOB in the world.
First I thought your from Brooklyn...I spent a lot of time in...nope not Brooklyn, but Manhattan. Great City!
So enjoy this journey and we will see you around!
Almost forgot..I will follow you back.
By the way my new site is bout my life and the title is:
My LIFE/HOME is a suitcase!

Hi Nicki - Very interesting and ambitious background. I wish you well in succeeding With the kind of attitude you have you most likely will. Just wanted to ask you how far you have gone in developing an income stream with WA As a newbie I know it will take awhile but just kind of wondered how long that while might be. Can you help me with this.....Jay

Hello Nicki and a big welcome to the WA Community! Thanks for the follow!

Wow you are passionate when it comes to international travel--that's great!

WA's training modules will definitely allow you to build your existing and any new websites successfully and great training on how to monetize it as well.

Don't hesitate to reach out for help. I used Live Chat, others in discussion, SiteSupport, and the search bar at the top of each page where I found lots of blogs, articles, and videos with step-by-step instructions to answer any question.

I'm in my second week and on day 7, I was able to ranks #1 and page 1 on google for my first site.

I wish you much success in not only meeting but exceeding your business goals!

Thank you for the follow, I have traveled to many places and there are many more I want to see! I am 60 now and still work full time. I worked two jobs for 9 years when I was raising children but I am too old for that now. I have made some money in marketing and looking to make enough to be free of working for someone else. I hope to accomplish that in the next two years.
I am now following you! I wish you all success in your endeavor!
Kind regards
Craig

Hi Nicki, I have been grinding all day on my new website. Thanks for the follow, I will follow you too, hoping to learn from your previous experiences. I like e-commerce to be honest, but I am here to learn about the building organic traffic and social media marketing. I have so much to learn it;s scary but I am stoked. So, I hope to see you around for a long time, this seems to be a nice friendly place. Keep stepping up, I will be right behind you.

Hi Chrissy! I'm happy that you're enjoying it here. There is SO MUCH to learn here!! But if I can offer you any advice from where I've messed up, it's this:
1. Take notes along the way. You'll remember better and we can never remember all of this
2. Don't focus too much on rank here at WA, concentrate on building your site and learning the ropes
3. Your main goal with affiliate marketing should always be helping people - not making money. If you work hard on helping people first, then money will definitely follow. Every online guru will reinforce this philosophy. Too many people are focused on money and they fail.
4. Follow and learn from those who are successful in the business. They don't have to be WA members.
5. Read books! Don't just get all of your research from online sources. Kick it old school with books. :)
6. Pace yourself but commit! Set a certain amount of time that you are willing to work every day and follow it. Right now you're all geared up because you're excited about this new opportunity, but your momentum will drop soon - trust me. Just prepare for it and plan on how to keep moving.
7. Always ask for help. Everyone is willing to help you along the way. Don't waste more than 30 min trying to figure something out. Just ask someone. Your time is valuable.
8. E-commerce is great, but first you need to learn how to ride a bicycle before you buy a motorcycle. Master one affiliate marketing site before you get into an e-commerce site.

I'm always here if you have any questions or need someone to vent to about your frustrations lol I also have a husky/boxer/shepherd mix named Brooklyn (hence my name). Such amazing, lovable and VOCAL buddies to have!! :)

Hi, Nicki. Thanks for following me, I've returned the favor. :-)

I see you are planning on going to Costa Rica in December. Have you ever been? I have and it is a beautiful country with very kind and fun people. I hope you enjoy the trip.

I also love your goal of turning your gross income from last year into your net income for this year. That's a great goal. I wish you all the best in your online endeavors.

Great to meet you.

Hey, Nicki. I'm Annie from California. When you first said you were new, I felt really ignorant for a minute seeing as you have all kinds of good advice in the posts. Then realizing that was a year ago, I feel better. Just starting out and about to hunt for that niche. I get side-tracked easily so this is a perfect project for me as long as I have pen in hand. Nice to meet you!

Hi Annie! Welcome to WA and thanks for following me. i guess I should update my profile info a little better lol
I can get sidetracked so easily as well. Learning to focus apparently takes a lot of work!
if I can offer you any type of advice for finding your niche it's this; forget about making money online. Think or write a list of things that you love. Things that you can talk to people or read about for hours and hours. Something that, if were to be brought up in a conversation, people would ask for your advice on. Those are the type of niche ideas you need to run with. If there is something that you love learning about and talking about, you will be adding value to your content and helping people. From there, you will easily be able to build traffic, email lists and loyal followers. That's how you can monetize your site. And, if it's fun for you to write and learn about, then it really isn't work! :)

Happy to have met you.

All the best, and ask me for help any time you need!!

Nicki
