About Carldickens
Joined April 2016
This is where we make our first choice. How do I define myself? Guess i'll jump right in... .

I am a overwhelmed father of 4 wonderful kids, Husband to a great wife, and owner of a international engineering consultancy business. I am probably more active from the business side and less from the physical side even though I love the outdoors.

I consider myself lucky to be one of the few people that I have ever know that actually likes my work and likes what I do. I get to solve problems (my favorite thing in life) and work with new and fascinating machines, cultures, and countries. My ultimate goal in life is to be financially secure enough (not rich guys, just secure) that I can use my talents and abilities to help others. Always looking for a way to help those individuals who are trapped due to lack of resources or knowledge.

I love computers, programming, movies, travel (not the actual travelling but more the "whew, we are here part).

SO why am I here.. well that is a long story but I am tired of saying "there must be a way I can make money online" and hoping that I can find resources, friends, assistance, and fun at this site while learning.

Look forward to working with everyone and thank you for the opportunity to work and learn with you.

Carldickens's Goals 3
Money Goals
My first goal is to make 1000 online to recover the amount invested (not even close) trying to make money online.
Mid range goal is to generate $5000 per month allowing me to reduce financial obligations and create financial cushion.
My long range goal is to make 8000-10000 per month to be able to make the transition from J.O.B. (just over broke) to one where I can pursue other dreams.
Oh, and I am willing to devote considerable time and effort to a viable option for making the above happen. I have about 20+ hours per week that I can regularly commit to this endeavor.

Great goals Carl! I am also new to this site but it looks like that first $1,000 is going to be the toughest part. After that we keep scaling. I hope this site gets us in the right direction, good luck!

Success is very cumulative in nature. Every action you take will add up to a much greater success. I can tell you that when you earn your first money, it will all become very REAL and it will lead to much more success.

Personally it took me a couple of months to get there (to earn my first dime), but by month 6 I was earning a consistent income. That is likely what your journey will look like...stay persistent and ask for help when you need it. I am in your "corner" every step of the way Carlton! :)

P.S. If you get a chance check out how the training helped me to build my websites. My latest one on how to boost your retirement income just went live last week and the one on sleep apnea has been up for a couple of months now. You can find the links on my profile page. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Everyone,
Wow, thank you all for the great welcome. I feel bad that I got pulled away for a real job for a few days. I am really looking forward to this and will be spending the next few days on all the training that is out there. I will do my best not to drive everyone crazy and do my research before I ask for help. But I am sure that I am going to need you guys assistance and hope that I can offer some as I learn. Give me a day or two and I will have a post for you guys to give me an opinion.

What's going on Carlton? Hope you have had an awesome week here at WA and you are making some good progress. Drop me a note "reply" if you need a hand with anything. :)

Hi Carlton,

Great to see that you have already updated your account settings. It shows that you are willing to go the way together with us and become successful online. Haven't you always looked for an opportunity to join a community online where you can work on your passion and make nearly anything happen?

Happy to say that you are absolutely right. Your won't become rich overnight, but with hard work you can become very successful and build up a passive income either full time or part time. It's totally up to you.

The next step now is to make up your mind if you want to go the way together with Wealthy Affiliate and me in order to build up a successful online business that allows you to work at home with your family, girlfriend, boyfriend or whatever. You will be your own boss.

Let me know if you need anything or if you have any questions. I would be more than happy to help you out.

Cheers
Don

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! :)

Hey Carlton and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

I am Don and I am here to help you along the way. If you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, just let me know via private message or a comment on my profile.

As a new member here, you should check out the Online Entrepreneur Certification getting started course (Level 1). At the beginning, it is important that you have a step by step training that you can build up knowledge and just learn. The Online Entrepreneur Certification is the perfect tool for doing so. It is a task-based course that will get you taking action on daily tasks that will lead you to building web assets. Here is the link that you will see within your main menu labeled "Getting Started" HOW TO REQUEST 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.
(3) You are going to get access to the community which is a great benefit as they will help at any time.
(4) I am going to be giving you my "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. :) Wonderful to have you as part of the community here at WA!

Cheers,

Don

Hi Don,
Thank you for the follow and great welcoming email. I am already proceeding through the training and enjoying what I am seeing. I expect that I will join as premier once I have completed a few more training's to make sure that we both are a good fit for each other.

Things are off to a good start.
